X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon's 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley. The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.

For fine dining it was mediocre, there was bugs and flies in the window and my salmon was very underdone, definitely not worth it.
It was our anniversary dinner and everything was just odd.

We wanted to celebrate our anniversary with a “real dining experience,” and were delighted that X2O would be open for service inside, but only just. We had an exceptional dinner, even allowing that it was our first restaurant outing in four months. We felt that the staff were taking all recommended precautions while maintaining the grace and ambience that we remembered. Tables were separated, the menu was paper, all silverware was wrapped in napkin. The staff were very knowledgeable (English breakfast radishes!Who knew?), impeccably dressed, plus masks and gloves. The food was delicious, as always. It is not a place to rush through your meal. It’s a lovely, relaxed-but-elegant evening out. And it’s nice to walk along the riverfront afterwards.

Food and service are up to Peter Kelly's usual high standards, and al fresco dining on a balmy evening at the riverfront was a fun and unique experience.

From the moment you walk in and are greeted by the lovely smiling Hostess until you leave dining at X2O is a superb dining experience. Honestly, nothing could have been better. Food taste, presentation and portion size are perfect. The save staff are ultra professional and top notch. We will be back.

A very nice venue with beautiful views of the Hudson and NYC skyline. The crowd was a little older (we went for dinner on a Saturday night). The service was exceptional and the food tasty all around. I plan to go back for brunch, which I expect to be a more traditional brunch based on dinner (not the "turn up" brunches that places do now, which can be fun also). Definitely recommend.

The lunch prix fixe is one of the best deals in town. After all, where else can you get three excellent courses for just $27? While the menu doesn't change much, the choices are ample and varied, so even the fussiest eaters should be able to find selections that they will enjoy. And enjoy they will. Three of us dined there and chose different appetizers, soup, salad, and risotto and all were excellent. Two duck orders, a perennial favorite amongst our group, and one salmon, cooked perfectly and presented in a very attractive manner, made up the entrees. As for dessert, two strawberry trifles, loaded with strawberries, and one chocolate torte, made for a wonderful ending. Excellent food, and service was terrific.

We love Xavier’s. Definitely a family favorite and we enjoy bringing friends for their special occasions. My one criticism is that although we are rather frequent patrons( we live 1 hour away) they always try to give us a undesirable table.

Was given a gift certificate as an anniversary gift and finally got to use it. We were concerned that we should try to use sooner than later since Peter Kelly has filed bankruptcy. We were very surprised that the restaurant was pretty busy and almost complete full when we left. It was a wonderful meal! I had the hanger steak and it was cooked perfectly and very tender. My husband had the venison and he kept raving how delicious it was. We would love to come back and fingers crossed the restaurant will stay open for business.

While the view is simply outstanding, and the service good, the food was really disappointing, overpriced, under-portioned, and not served hot. Two of the three appetizers were good - the scallops and special pasta, but the mains we had were quite disappointing. The salmon was shockingly small for a $36 dish, was over cooked, tasteless and drenched in butter. The pork chop was very tough and not good and the halibut was tasteless. Interestingly, being a high end place, when the runner asked how everything was and I told him that the apps were good but the mains weren’t, he said he was sorry and walked away. And that was it. No manager came over to ask what was wrong.

I was concerned after reading some negative reviews, but when all was said and done, my wife and I had a great experience. The service was a bit slow, and one waiter seemed to have tons of table, with the help of a support staff. However, the food was fantastic, the cocktails well made, and the price reasonable. Would go back again!

The food was excellent. The service was above average. There is one thing I didn’t appreciate. There were two separate bills and the tip was included. No one mentioned this to us. We almost tipped on the top. One bill was for the drinks and the other bill had the tax and tip minus the Groupon. I have alerts on my credit card and queried why I was charged twice and then I was told the tip was on one bill with taxes and the drinks on another. Don’t like this system and if so... they should let the customers know. Didn’t appreciate that at all.

We had a wonderful evening having dinner at X2O. Everything was exceptional. We ordered the specials for entrees: venison and cod. Perfect!! Appies were the warm shellfish and a scallop special. Yummy!! We love coming here and can’t wait to return. The staff knows us and really makes us feel welcome.
