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.

There were a plague of gnats by my table in the corner... very, very annoying.

We dined outside, alongside the Hudson River. We started a few minutes before sunset. It was really beautiful outside. The tables were appropriately placed far from each other. We felt safe.

The service was great and so were the food and drinks. My husband and I had a great time.

Acknowledged my reservation promptly and without question.
Serviice was very good, but had a few exceptions. Both the Chardonnay and the Sauvignon Blanc were not property chilled.
There was a wait a bit too long between the serving of water and the request for drinks. (Understand server was a novice. (Just needs more time).
Website did not indicate the availability
of valet parking.
Overall, it was a dining experience we enjoyed. Thank-you.

First time here during the pandemic. Outdoor tables spaced apart even further than the required 6 feet, providing an enormous sense of safety and comfort to go along with the beautiful setting and delicious food. Waitstaff very careful to keep their distance except when necessary. Touch-free menu available by holding phone to framed and scannable QR icon. Overall, a terrific experience with delicious gazpacho and short rib ravioli appetizers followed by soft shell crabs over vegetables and jumbo shrimp with a marvelous rice. Topped it off when we shared the tiramisu! Go and enjoy.

Our favorite restaurant in Westchester. Outstanding broad selection of food choices without feeling like they are just throwing 1000 choices against the wall in the hope that you find something you want. I had everything from Tuna Poke to grilled octopus to braised short ribs. They were very willing to swap out carbs to make by diabetes doctor happy. They allow BYO with a corkage a bit on the high side of average, but with good glasses of our choice (Burgundy glasses requested and gladly provided for our champagne), I did not mind the fee. Just don't bring Yellowtail. It doesn't do the restaurant justice.

We came back to Xavier's X2O to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
We held our reception here and it was wonderful so we always come back to enjoy pleasant memories and enjoy a great meal in an amazing space.
About the dining room, the tables are amply spaced out, the servers masked, the air circulation is great(you feel it gently in the background).
I admit we always order our favorites from the menu and I got the soft shell crabs which were perfectly prepared and I am from Maryland so very picky about the preparation and presentation. My husband had the spare ribs which he thoroughly enjoyed.
We also ordered the risotto as an additional side which is an absolutely unnecessary indulgence but it so delicious and full of fresh vegetable flavors (the leftovers came for lunch the next day)
The staff remember us and make just enough of a fuss which we greatly appreciate.
The views are magical and the service was leisurely paced which suited us on a week night celebration.
We look forward to celebrating here next year and for years to come!

It has a nice view since it’s right by the water, but the inside feels a bit old. We had an appetizer, that was OK, and ordered the cowboy ribeye, which we were very excited about it, but it turn out to be very rubbery and hard to cut even with the steak knife. Maybe some other things in the menu are better or maybe we just had bad luck with that particular piece of meat. Desserts were also bery average quality, the tiramisu looked and tasted like out of a box, not prepared in house.

Everything was spectacular. Beautiful evening on the Hudson so the view was amazing but more important was the food. Varied menu, deliciously curated and presented and the most delicious meal we have had in quite a while. Staff is attentive and follows Covid guidelines. Never disappointed at one of Peter Kelly's establishments and I can't wait to return. Some may consider this a pricey establishment I don't think so for what you are getting in food, service and atmosphere.

Amazing Food ! The Food is the best part of the experience. The presentation is exquisite !While we were had outside seating, it was very near the public area, so the noise level was high and we only had a view of the GW. We were celebrating my mom's 77th birthday ! We will definitely come again when we can go inside ! Peace to all !!

We were there - 5 Guests - for a special occasion. We were most disappointed in X2O .. having been there many years ago when it was considered a fine restaurant. Not so anymore. It is a completely different caliber restaurant. The service was bad. The kids waiting tables were obviously never properly trained, for example, serving us a bread basket with dessert, clearing the table before people were finished eating. To top that off, the table behind us was not 6 feet away from us. At best, maybe 3 1/2 and when we mentioned to the Manager, he did nothing, said nothing ... even after telling him how poor the service was and filthy the bathroom was. He listened to us then said "I'll be back" and never came back. The icing on the cake which am still trying to work out 3 days later is that my credit card was charged twice!! After calling within hours of our meal, I was told oh, it's just a glitch in our system. Nice! Do not waste your time or money!!

We were seated outside and it was a beautiful evening. The food was great - inventive dishes that tasted like summer. Don’t bother with the ice cream option as it was a pool of soup one it arrived. The only flaw of the evening.

Service was great , however the new menu removed some staple items. Parma ham with mozzarella gone, also no steak item, unless you want ribeye for two. How do you not have steak ? Disappointed

Valet parking was horrendous, a long line , and they should be disinfecting the car when exiting, which they don’t.

It was our first time and we knew going in that this place was pricey but it was all absolutely worth it! The staff was quick and professional, the place was spotless, and the food was a great portion ( more than what I expected). The waiter recommended a special mango salad that I hope they'll make all year round! We will definitely be visiting again.

I wanted to celebrate my birthday at X20 as I have in the past almost every. Now with Covid, I wanted to try the outdoor dining. In all my years of dining at Resturant X Group, service always stands out. The food and the service are always exceptional. It is a known restaurant group in Rockland and Westchester.

I made reservations on for 7:30 on open table. We arrived a 7. They seemed not to have my reservation. I had a floor manager taking names on a sheet. We waited an hour at 8:30 we get seated. Service was terrible. The waiter did not deliver what we were looking for. They really failed. Food took long, not really tasteful. No one checked on us. Dessert was a fail. I don't know who was running back of house since front of house was scattered. I walked out feeling sad and so disappointed after my birthday dinner.

I was sad that this restaurant had lost its flair, a restaurant I held so high. I've had better food and service at a local diner. I am not a complainer and I know great food. This was a big fail after looking forward to a wonderful dinner for many months.

X2O is always fabulous! On this visit the wait was long due to the newly created outdoor seating and the beautiful evening. We waited 30 minutes for our outdoor reservation seating because people who had indoor reservations changed their minds and were in no rush to vacate. Once seated we received an apology for the wait and the service was fantastic as usual as were our meals. Definitely go!

Wonderful outdoor experience. This was our first visit since the pandemic started. We were given a nice waterside table with stunning views of Manhattan and the Palisades.
We are accustomed to delicious, beautifully presented food with gracious service here and this visit did not disappoint.
