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.

In the past, I would have rated exceptional, but feel food was just ok...need to focus on gluten free items as well, someone in our party has to eat gluten free, and there wasn't much...

I was disappointed in the food. I looked forward to coming here since June. The food was lack luster and the steak I was looking forward to was unseasoned. The only thing with flavor was the seafood crepe and creamed spinach. The place was gorgeous and the view was amazing, I’ll give it that.

It is a pleasure to return to a restaurant and be greeted by staff in a way that shows they sincerely remember you. Tried a new quinoa-and-crab appetizer, including sweet potato and avacodo, and was pleasantly surprised by it's unique nature. My dates halibut was prepared in a new and original--and, she says, delicious--fashion. My veal schnitzel was very good with a mushroom sauce/gravy (on the side). The spaetzel was perfectly made yet seasoned a little heavily with salt. As for desserts: I had a wonderful combination of raspberry sorbet and chocolate ice cream, and my companion had a new, delightful, layered chocolate concoction that was absolutely yummy!

The food was fabulous. Everything from the appetizer to the dessert was well done, including presentation. The only thing that made it a four star evening is that it was for a friends birthday and I would have preferred to have been on the first floor.

One meal at our table came out cold, and they took it away and quickly brought it back hot. No one is perfect, but they remedied it perfectly.
Wonderful restaurant, interesting menu, great service.

We’re Bonkers for Yonkers! What a great spot! From start to finish! The setting, the food, the nice people! We can wait to go back in the summer and see more of the pier. A wonderful, big, round table and great atmosphere. Such gorgeous Hudson views and so well located! The wine list is extensive, and the fish options were plentiful and so creative. Also lots of dishes you don’t see elsewhere and many local ingredients. Thank you for a really special evening.

Overall experience very good. The octopus and tuna carpaccio apps were very good. Grilled broccoli and pear salad unremarkable--broccoli grilled but soft and not served hot. Halibut special entree was excellent; skate entree good, but it was swimming in butter/oil. Apple/cranberry cobbler dessert special was very good. Service was excellent overall, but no need to keep checking if we were through eating.

As always an exquisite dining experience at X20 Xaviers on the Hudson. There is a three course lunch menu that is an excellent value! The Sqaush Bisque was out of this world! My friend had the Duck on the menu & is was delicious (I dislike Duck, was a pleasant surprise!). My only complaint would be regarding the Pork Loin I ordered. It seemed as though the "chop" was cut filet in half possibly to cook faster. I prefer a thick cut of Pork Loin & cutting it caused the loin to dry out somewhat
(Leave it whole). Still tasty but could have been better! As always, exceptional service & ambiance. Can't wait to return

We love this restaurant, but have one issue; this has happened more than once: we see several unoccupied tables near the window with the spectacular view, but are seated at a less desirable table. When I request the window table, we are told it is unavailable. However, usually these window tables remain unoccupied for the entirety of our dinner! When I question the head waiter, I am given some unconvincing excuse. Are we not as valuable customers as others? Perhaps it is because we made the reservation on Opentable?

X20 is back to being good! We stopped going because the meals were lackluster and the menu was not interesting. Went over the weekend with a groupon and had a fabulous 3 course meal. So many choices and such interesting flavors ! It's a little pricey but food is good and well prepared. Service was very attentive but we would have liked to have had a little more time between courses. All in all, I recommend this restaurant.

The food and service are consistently very good every time we dine here whether a special occasion or casual dining. The tables are covered with table cloth even for lunch! Try also a yummy peanut brittle by the receptionist. Wish they sell it. Overall, it has been one of the best restaurants in Westchester.

X2O was great for our New Year's Eve dinner. The pre-fixe menu was filled with several options that it felt like the regular menu. The food was well portioned and served in a timely manner. My only note is that the wine bottles were a bit on the expensive side. Besides that, the atmosphere, food, and service were excellent. Great place for special occasions.
