I don’t know how many times I ate at Xaviar, never disappointed, the food is always excellent presentation taste, ambiance. Now my son is an adept ( he is 22y old), he loves it and never hesitates to order something he is not familiar with because he knows it’s going to be delicious and it is. Thank you for Groupon i can go more often. Always a great night out with excellent food.

It always a great experience at X20. I didn't give the food a 5 this time because my steak was overcooked but everything else was excellent.

The overall ambience was very good with very attentive service. The food did not match the hype. Specifically the advertised mousse on the green and white asparagus was more like a creamy sauce, which somewhat overwhelmed the delicate flavor of the white asparagus; the French fries which looked light and fluffy on a special plate were not as crisp and substantive as hoped for but occasionally soggy. The espresso macchiato we ordered and paid for was really a double espresso without even a hint of milk. As a general observation for the meat dishes (we had duck and hanger steak) we would have preferred smaller servings at a somewhat higher quality level.
All in all it was an ok evening but we probably won't be back.

The food was excellent...we had the sweetbreads as our entree. The sauce was right on and the accompanying roasted figs were delicious. Service was attentive without being overbearing; somebody took the time to train the staff. It's a large room and it was busy on a Friday night so I would rate the noise level as moderate (not so much noise that it would in anyway hinder a quiet conversation).

Food was excellent. Service was severely lacking - took forever to take order for drinks and then dinner
Very inattentive - wine and water glasses never refilled before completely emptied/ received incorrect utensils
Just bad service - and I picked the restaurant based on a Zagat service level of 4.5

The view is THE reason to come. And the vibe is upbeat because just about everyone is celebrating something. Alas, the food and the service do not come close to standing up to the prices and reputation. Gluten free take note.... there were slim to no choices, not a stitch of accommodation for GF diners. At $48 pp brunch before tax and tip, they at least ought to have bread and one dessert for GF diners. Disappointed.

The service was below abysmal. We sat at our table for an hour before they came to take our order, and only then because my husband got up to speak to the head waiter and say we were ready. The wait staff is poorly trained (if at all): serving appetizers across people’s plates and in front of their faces, not getting orders correct, and taking forever to clear. It took us another 30 minutes to get the bill when we were ready to leave. On the plus side, the food was good.

It was my wife’s Birthday and from the time we walked in to the time we left we were treated like nobody else was around. Albert and the woman ( I cant remember her name my apology) were the perfect SERVERS. We left feeling overwhelmed and overjoyed with the whole experience. I have already recommended you to many friends and family. We look forward to visiting again . ONCE AGAIN I APPLAUD YOUR FOR A SUCH ENJOYABLE EXPERIENCE.

That was a special occasion , we celebrated my Aunt and Uncle’s 60th anniverssary of marriage. It was “a surprise” anniversary party for them . They were enormously impressed by the restaurant’s view over the Hudson River,
elegant interior, delicious food and most of all by the consideration and professionalism of the staff. My aunt and uncle are people of the world and seasoned travelers so their judgement is based on their previous experience. They said that brunch on April 7 was an extraordinary and unforgettable experience. Our appreciation goes to the owner, chef, manager and all staff members of X20 Xaviars on the Hudson for their endeavor to keep their customers happy.
Sincerely, Lyudmila L.

Arrived on time for an 8:00 resv. The valet parking was backed up- 8 cars in front of us! So we sat and waited.
At the front desk inside, the young lady said they were running behind and we should go to bar and she would call us. We asked how long the wait might be- no idea. No help at all!
At the bar, it was packed- with both people eating and waiting for their tables. A lady next to us said she had been trying to order a glass of wine for 15 mins. So my husband, who has a deep loud voice called over to the bar tender who asked what we wanted. We gave him our order and ordered a glass of wine for the lady next to us. He poured her wine, gave it to us. He then proceeded to start making some other special kind of drinks for someone else. He completely ignored us. After 7 mins. My husband called out to him and asked if he was making our drinks. He said yes. Then had to ask us again what we wanted!
The whole place was in a chaotic state. We have been here many times before and had never seen this.
When we’re finally brought in to a table - at 8:45- 45 mins later than our resv, I asked for the manager. I told him what had happened, and said this was not acceptable. He was gracious and apologized, and offered to buy us our first drink at the table, which he did. He made some excuses that the girls at the fri t were new and inexperienced- not acceptable! This is a busy place and is a finer restaurant- at least it used to be.
Our servers were nice, courteous and table service was good- they had a ton of staff there- a ton. The guys clearing the table were in top of it. So was the water not and the bread boy.
It was my husbands bday and I told them/ so they put a candle in his dessert- which was excellent bread pudding!
The food was as good as always.
When we got our bill and I gave them my credit card, they came back to me, handed me my card and said dinner was on Chef Kelly! Now that was more than a surprise. It was not necessary to do that but they did make us

I first visited this restaurant at Christmas time, and it was outstanding. The food was excellent, and the service brilliant. My second time, it was mediocre. The food was ok, and I'd ordered the same dishes that I had chosen the previous visit. I ordered two specials (not on the menu) - halibut with a parsley sauce and a roasted broccoli salad. My fish was overcooked and overly spicy/salty, and the parsley sauce wasn't spread evenly over the dish. In fact, there was barely any sauce on my fish at all. I noticed other tables had a more complete looking preparation on this same dish, so I'm not sure why mine came out the way it did. The broccoli salad lacked pomegranates, which it had the previous time I'd ordered it, and it seemed not as stellar this time because of it.

I would only recommend it with the the caveat that they should expect a different level of service then was known in the past.

We were promised a really nice table, only to be brought to the table directly next to the service station in the middle of the room.

We were offered NO hors d'oeuvre for our brunch. I had to ask about them and they were brought after our entree was served.

As always Sunday Brunch at X20 is so special. This time is was my Niece's 35th birthday. She had never been to X20 before and she was extremely happy. The food was great and every time she turned around the waiter filled her glass with Prosecco. What she really loved were the "surprise" foods that came out during the meal. From fresh baked goods, to special "finger foods" that were not part of the menu but is PART OF THE EXTRA SERVICE you only get at X20 where the X stands for XTRA! My wife and I have been coming to the Brunch for years and now we have a new brunch partner. Many thanks for always making a trip to X20 special.
