Food very good as always! Drinks didn’t arrive till food came. Then asked for glass of wine that was forgotten. Restaurant is in need of updating! Carpets and flooring very worn! Menu hasn’t changed much but still very good!

Excellent place to go. 31st wedding anniversary dinner. Food was terrific- staff is on top of it. Drinks are excellent. Try the house vodka. Can’t go wrong.

Food was fantastic and so was the service! Place is slowly falling apart though. A lot of things are old and need an update. Chair was missing a pole. Carpet is old and a little musty smelling. It looks like a place that was beautiful 20years ago. There is a difference between old and charming, and just old and unkept looking (in my opinion of course).

We've been going to this restaurant for many, many years and it never disappoints, the food is delicious, the service is wonderful......however, the actual building, parking entrance and lighting outside need a redo. You can actually PASS the restaurant if you didn't know where it was exactly. Needs a light near the X sign

What can I say? I’ve never had a bad experience here. Chef Peter Kelly has nailed it. On my most recent visit I had the French onion soup (the best I’ve ever had) followed by the salad Nicoise. Service is impeccable.

New Year’s Eve....we were here 20 yrs ago.....astonished they were still open. Thought it was still amazing....not so much....bread server literally threw bread onto plates! Could have definitely cared less about what his job was. Main server nice but took way to long to order everything. Room was freezing cold. They tried to move space heater and it kept shorting out the circuit. Not great and sorry I didn’t pick somewhere else for our New Years dinner.

We were seated in a cold room and eventually connected a portable heater to warm the room. Not the ambiance we expected, especially since we frequent the restaurant at least 2x a year. In addition, we frequent other X restaurants.

Have been here a few times - one of my favorite 'local' restaurants. Food is always very good and the staff is very attentive. It's a very cozy restaurant at night and a nice view, in the back, during the day. I'd recommend to anyone and I look forward to coming back, again.

Incredible top shelf cuisine at a very very reasonable price and so blessed to have this in the suburbs I can’t wait to come again. The beef Wellington was amazing and the waitress told me that it had three different types of mushrooms in it and fograis . It was so tender and the sauce was so good I can’t wait to come again my wife was blown away too. She had the scallops. Definitely recommend the moules frittes appetizer.

Bully boy is our favorite restaurant, however the last visit was not up to Peter Kelly 's standards. I hope this was a fluke. We should of sent the swordfish back , but did not. It was dry and overcooked. We noticed the fireplace is not working the ceiling was bowed . i hope we don't lose this gem in Rockland.

Our dinner was served less than 5 minutes after our appetizer plates were removed. i noticed the same thing at other tables for two. We were too stuffed to enjoy a 2nd drink or dessert which was a little disappointing. Still our favorite restaurant but wish there was a little more time between courses. We felt a little rushed.

We have been going to the Xavier family of restaurants for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal or poor service in well over one hundred visits. This came to an end this past Friday evening when our dining experience was spoiled by extremely poor service. Apparently they were a little short staffed that evening and we happened to be the table that fell through the crack. I certainly understand that these things happen occasionally and I wouldn't complain if our service would have been a little slow because of that. However we had to end up trying to chase down servers for cocktails appetizer and dinner orders. No one ever asked how our meal was and after spending $284 on dinner I was very disappointed. If this was my first time there it is possible I would not return, but since I have been there many times I know this is not the way they do business and I will return and look forward to another wonderful experience.

The restaurant was very cold so we asked to change the table. our new table was next to fireplace, but there were only the candles lit so it didn't change anything. Only after we asked to make the temperature higher it was a little more pleasant.
The Wellington stake was not medium but to rare. It was fixed when I asked for it. the dough was not good. I can judge, because I know this meal well.
The service was great. Thank you!
