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.

We were made to wait an hour after our reservation time; when they seated us, it was upstairs in what I believe was the party space, which was loud and boisterous, filled with big groups. Scuffed and dirty walls! Food was amazing though, and our waiter was kind.

We have been to X20 several times, but this recent experience is giving me second thoughts about returning.
I chose this restaurant for my birthday, since it is one of my favorite places for special occasions. Our reservations were for 7:30, and it was a Saturday, so I expected we might have a little wait. But not an hour, and certainly not with the way we were treated by the hostesses.
I am disabled, use a cane. They all saw me when I arrived, and when they finally came to get us from the bar, they also saw how difficult I found it wading through the crowd. But the table they had was upstairs, with NO elevator access. And they acted like it was my fault for being disabled, and could not do the stairs, not their lack of consideration. So I was kept waiting, again. And since the restaurant was so overbooked, there was no way I would be able to get a seat if I returned to the bar/sushi area again. Eventually, they brought a chair out to me to sit in the hallway, causing me further embarrassment.
If it wasn't a Saturday night, and we thought we could get into another restaurant, we would have left. When we were finally shown to a table, it was obviously an added table, because it was blocking the access to the prep area for the wait staff, not to mention diners coming and going. I gave up counting how many times I was bumped into after it went into double digits, despite pushing the table further away to avoid the constant bumping.
The wait staff was professional, and very apologetic for the wait we had, offering us wine. But we do not drink, and were using a Groupon, so there wasn't really anything they could offer other than not charging us for the coffee and espresso at the end of the meal. The food was good, although for me a bit too salty. I had asked our server to request the kitchen to not add salt to anything I ordered if it was being prepared fresh, but I wish they had offered to substitute sides they could have made without salt.

Awesome as usual. Started off with a warm tuna roll from the sushi bar. Had the hanger steak with mashed potatoes and green beans. Added cream spinach and the mushroom risotto. Finished it with a chocolate soufflé and coffee. Oh, and a few glasses of wine

The service and the staff were wonderful! The food was so delicious with ample servings. More expensive than I typically go for, but it was a special occasion and the quality of the food and the awesome service so made the experience most positive. Only suggestion would be the upstairs dining room and it's ambiance....which was so so. Some of the dining chairs had stains on them, so I think they should be re-upholstered. We did, however, have an awesome view from our table. I would most definitely return.

On a separate note, the valet parking was unacceptable. The kids working were doing the best they could under the circumstances. However, one of our guests was inconvenienced as his keys were lost. I'm hoping he was able to get some sort of compensation from the valet company. Don't know if this has anything to do with X20, but I thought I should pass along my comments.

The food is always excellent but the menu for holiday meals varies little from year to year and is so limited that it gets boring. Desserts seem to be only thing that vary much.

Mothers day prix fixe nebu. Three course rather $$$ but I expected that. View is fantastic, but was underwhelmed by the food and service. Wife's salmon was not edible, son's pork overdone and my chicken was ok. Perhaps overwhelmed by the Mother's day crowd, but considering it's owned by a celebrity chef you'd think they would have risen to the occasion. No return planned.

The Chateaubriand was a gorgeous piece of meat. It could have been cooked a little longer (medium rare) and the crust was excessively overdone and charred. Maybe cooked at too low a temperature? Also would have benefited by the plate being hot. Potatoes were excellent, but small. Desert was excellent (sorry- chocolate cake ?) Overall very satisfactory, although a little pricey.

A Mother’s Day disaster. My wife’s entree was uneatable. She couldn’t even send it back because the waitress was MIA. They may be ok for other times but don’t go there for a busy over priced special occasion.

The decor and view are wonderful. However, the food was not of the same quality. My steak was not soft of flavorful, but was spicy. The duck was fine, and the fish was fine. Thats all. The side dishes were too spicy. The food needed to be better to match the experience and prices.

First time visit. We were seated an an inner table unfortunately, but still had decent views of up and down the Hudson river. Service was really good from the moment we walked in and continued throughout. Waters refilled, different staff members checking in on you. Food wise, we enjoyed everything we ordered. Old Fashioned cocktail was mixed well and with a generous pour. Will definitely go back and try out different things on the menu. Thanks for an enjoyable evening.

Disappointing! This place used to be different. Food was mediocre and uninspired. The place itself still has beautiful views but the room looks past its prime and in desperate need of renovation. Shabby, dirty carpet. Bathroom was a disgraceful mess. Not sure how soon we will be back....

Peter X. Kelly and his staff NEVER disappoint. From a warm welcome at reception to telling us it was “ a pleasure to see you again” at the end of the meal, X2O continues to deliver on every level. Beautiful ambience, sensational choices for all three courses and artistic presentation. Servers are all attentive, knowledgeable and oh so pleasant. Julian has everything under control and along with Luna, Diego, Brittany and Luz they treat us as if we were family members. We are fortunate to have such a culinary gem here in Westchester. Do not miss an opportunity to dine here.
