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.

The answer to that question is maybe. The food wasn’t hot at all & the service was just ok. It’s not a place that would be at the top of my list!

Valentine’s Day price fixes. We had seafood crepes, tuna poke, duck “steak”,,chateaubriand, Belgian chocolate timbale and lava cake. All excellent.

Paid $5 Parking had a 5 minute way to drop off and over 30 minutes to pick up / so far.

Terrible. Food was over salted to the point of inedible. Overpriced. Would not go back.

Valet parking should be greatly improved or, have access to park yourself on premises.

Nothing (almost) infuriates me more than when the hostess tries to sit you at the worst table when the restaurant is virtually empty. I won’t come back as a result. It’s a really poor way to treat guests. The food was good, but not great, it could have been warmer both the coconut shrimp and the steak were warm and clearly not right out of the oven... The service was attentive, the ambience nice.

The service as always was wonderful. The ambience suburb. I had my usual skate fish that I generally enjoy. It wasn’t as moist as what I’m accustomed to.

CONSISTENTLY EXCELLENT FOR YEARS!

Just went to X20 for Sunday brunch and it was such a wonderful experience. Truly excellent service and wonderful food. The view of the Hudson River is stunning. It's terrific to be in a restaurant with such a low noise level that you can easily hear the conversation of others at the table. We love this elegant dining room. We recommend the butternut squash bisque and miso-glazed king salmon; also the tempura of shrimp and asparagus followed by the roast New York sirloin. You can't go wrong with the chocolate dessert -- rich, luscious...totally decadent. Service is really top quality! This is a great place to meet friends and relax on a Sunday for brunch. For a romantic evening, dinner here is really magical.

First time going with my girlfriend for her birthday, we had Long Island Duck Breast with Togarashi, Very nice dish. Service was good, they wished my girlfriend a happy birthday with her name on a plate.

The ambience is lovely, and we had great drinks in the bar. But the pate was cold and dry, and our food not of the quality we’ve come to expect at the Xavier’s we’ve known in Piermont.
All of the staff was professional and terrific, however

Their Groupon for dinner for two or four makes it an excellent value. The food is always plentiful and delicious and the room and views of the NYC skyline are beautiful.

Our experience was good until we found sharp plastic pieces the size of a pearl in my daughter's sorbet dish. We quickly searched my other daughter's sorbet which did not have plastic in it. We notified the manager (female, dark hair) who promptly came out, removed the dessert and when she returned she said that there were no other plastic pieces found in the kitchen and that they had removed all desserts on our bill. She abruptly set down a plate of macaroons, rolled her eyes and walked off. I have never seen such inappropriate behavior. We could care less that the dessert charge was taken off our bill. What we care about is if the plastic will become stuck or worse perforate our daughter's bowel. My husband and I are both physicians. We have reported this restaurant to the health department. I hope this manager is severely reprimanded over this behavior if not outright fired. The kitchen needs to do a better job at watching spray of plastic and other substances during food prep. This really could not have turned out well.

I thought the sea scallops special entreewas delicious but the scallops were on the small side and the bread pudding was smaller than I expected. I was also hoping it was warmer and a little more moist.

The rest of the meal was delicious and plentiful. The service was attentive and professional and we were pleased with the ambiance.

We had the groupon, it was a great deal you can use it with every item on the menu including specials! We had an excellent evening! Service was on par, never had to ask for anything because they either already took care of it or was already there asking what we needed. The food was amazing, we had the shrimp pasta appetizer and figs which were amazing, followed by the short rib and duck breast and ended dinner with creme brûlée and banana foster bread pudding. Amazing views right on the water, excited to come back and try their bottomless brunch!

We were disappointed with our experience. I am hoping that it was just one off but it wasn’t just one thing that turned us off. The ambiance lacked character (maybe because it was dark - the view is probably spectacular during the day), the background music was more fitting to a 50’s diner and the food was unremarkable ( the Thai shrimp was overcooked and almost rubbery, the cowboy steak was drenched in butter to the point of being inedible. The octopus and the tuna tartare were very good though...) I don’t want to bash the restaurant but perhaps management will see this post and fix things so that it will turn around. The restaurant was half empty so I must not be the only one who feels this way...

We absolutely love X2O, and come here every month. The food is awesome, and the staff truly cares about making your experience wonderful. We had 2 appetizer specials: scallops and figs, which were fabulous. Our entrees were the duck and swordfish. The fish was perfectly grilled, juicy and full of grilled flavor. My husband loved the duck. Dessert was apple cranberry cobbler. We can’t wait to return.

We have regularly dined at X20 since the week it opened in 2007. Remarkably, it has not missed a beat since then. Not only has it remained consistently wonderful, it has only gotten more fabulous. The attentive staff, the outstanding menu, the satisfying portions all contribute to an unforgettable special occasion, date night or simply dinner with family or friends. If you want a beautiful environment and fabulous dining experience with New York City ambience but Westchester County prices, hurry and make a reservation. Thank you Peter, Jim, Julian and Susanna.
