We took our three school-aged kids to lunch yesterday and had a wonderful time. The views and ambiance can’t be beat! The price fixe lunch is a bargain and the kids really enjoyed going to a “fancy adult place.” The service was top notch.

My only recommendation is that the main course options were quite standard. They were delicious, but standard. The first course options (gazpacho, Pate, mushroom risotto) were interesting and tasty. I think the main course options could be set to match.

Overall, a lovely experience.

As always, X2O was outstanding in every respect. We have been coming here for many years, beginning when they were located in Garrison. It is our go-to place for special occasions, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. We especially like the Sunday brunch. Peter's food is always creative and delicious. The service is up to European standards even though the staff are principally local young people. They are especially well trained and appear dedicated to making every meal a memorable experience. And, of course, the view on a bright sunny day is memorable.

We were celebrating my brother's 60th birthday. Overall the evening was enjoyable, but.....the burrata and beet salad on puff pastry appetizer was a disappointment for two of our party. However, both the octopus and the pasta with shrimp and uni appetizers were very good. The wine we ordered from the wine list was no longer available. And, finally I was served an entrée I did not order and had to wait for them to prepare and serve my dish while everyone else had their meal. Desserts were all great. Even with all these faults, I enjoyed my experience and would give them another shot.

Our experiences here have never been less than outstanding. The service is always pleasant and gracious. The innovative dishes are always perfectly prepared. I have trouble ordering anything but the scallops because they are always exceptional. I'm not exaggerating when I stress we have never had a bad experience!

We started with amazing butternut squash bisque and the blue cheese biscuit. Then I had a delicious quail meal and my husband’s hanger steak was also perfectly medium rare. Highly recommended for a lovely dinner while watching boats on the Hudson River.

We love Xaviers on the Hudson. I requested a table downstairs with a view. It was our wedding anniversary. We live an hour from the restaurant. I made the res on Open Table but also made a call to the restaurant to make certain we had a waterside table. When we arrived we were escorted upstairs and not given a table with a view. When I mentioned it to the young woman she was exceedingly rude. Eventually a table by the window opened up and we moved, it was upstairs and a table for 2 and we were 3. Nothing would have been done if I had not mentioned it to the Head waiter upstairs. Would have given the food a 5 star rating but one of the desserts were a disappointment on this particular night. Very disappointed in the way this was handled. A restaurant of this caliber should have better trained staff.

Menu looked amazing but was poorly executed. Presentation was sloppy. Appetizers was okay, had octopus it needed flavor. For entree the duck fat on the breast wasn’t rendered. Hanger steak: the bone marrow bone was huge and not in proportion with rest of items on the plate. Sides: creamed spinach was not creamy, cauliflower was over fried and soggy ( no taste). Dessert: Creme Snita was everything but crispy, Orange Confit with Valrohna chocolate cake was orange marmalade (jam). Expected more.

I am happy that I finally made the choice to go with family. I enjoyed everything about dinner at X2O on the Hudson. Service was friendly and attentive. From the drinks, appetizers, main meal and to my birthday sweet, all I keep telling others is that this experience was awesome. Everything was delicious. The seafood crepe appetizer and the cowboy ribeye for two is highly recommended.

Honestly, the ribeye steak for two could satisfy more than two people for dinner. Still, the menu has so much variety that your guests would have so much more to add to a bite of your ribeye steak. There was enough that everyone at my table had a bite.

This is five star restaurant that I’d surely return to very soon. My table server highly recommended brunch time. The details she gave made me sure I’d want everything they’d serve at X20 on the Hudson.

The Lunch menu was very diverse and tasted great. The salmon had a wonderful sauce served on the side so not too much was smothering the delicate salmon cooked to perfection. The setting is beautiful and wonderfully peaceful.
