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.

The food was outstanding as it always is! My favorite Westchester retuarant! Everyone should treat themselves at least once. But it’s like potato chips once will never be enough!

It was a very disappointing dining experience. While the food was pretty good, the horrendous seating arrangement that we had to suffer through made the overall experience awful. We were a party of 3 adults given a table barely large enough to accommodate 2 (I would be surprised if the table was even 30" square). Before being seated we inquired about 3 other larger unoccupied nearby tables and we were told that those 3 tables were strictly reserved for a party of 4. We were horrified when 2 of these larger tables were subsequently very quickly given to 2 parties of only 3. Our table was so small that it was impossible to pick up your wine glass without banging into your water glass....so tiny that the servers had to remove our bread plates in order to squeeze our appetizers onto the table. We will not return to this restaurant. If you are looking for a "fine" dining experience (or even "decent" dining spot) this is not the place for you.

Always fantastic brunch! We've been here three times for brunch and itself always delicious. Service was a little slow this time, it took about an hour for all four of the 'extra' platters to make it to us (despite several passing our table), and our server dissapeared after our check was signed, despite me still waiting for to go desserts (i had to ask another server). That said, that didn't at all ruin our brunch! Still delicious and mostly excellent service!

Our Sunday brunch at X2O was excellent and so was the service. The food (a 3 course meal) was superb and you can't beat unlimited mimosas. I highly recommend X2O.

I made a reservation for 8pm. Got there 15mins early as I always do but it was very busy. Waited about 30mins to get seated. BUT Xaviers doesn’t disappoint, polite staff, outstanding cuisine and lovely ambiance. Love that place!

As always, Peter Kelly never fails to provide an exceptional Dining experience. The view of NYC and the GW Bridge just adds to the enjoyment. Should be on everyone's list of where to enjoy a fabulous dinner, etc.

Not what it used to be. We used to go (pre-pandemic) often to X2O, but this was a cut below. From the mediocre bread instead of an excellent baguette to inferior ingredients (one type of watermelon instead of two) to smaller and/or not the freshest items this was no longer a special place. Service was good but slow, and they didn't clean the breadcrumbs as a high level restaurant ought to do. After over 30 years of loyal patronage at Peter's various restaurants, this is no longer a place to look forward to for us.

A beautiful location on the Hudson. We did the luncheon special- one was the cod and the other salmon. Delicious!
I highly recommend it!

Restaurant did an outstanding job. The valet parking not so much. All quarters left in car were missing. Based on that issue I would not recommend anyone to visit.

I hadn't eaten at X20 in a while and hoped it would be as good an experience as on previous visits. It was. Lunch is almost a bargain, a very reasonable price for a three course meal of well prepared food, with lots of options for all three courses. Service was attentive, but not overbearing. And of course the ambience and views were lovely. My two companions are eager to return; this was their first visit.

Everything we were served was wonderful—my pork chop with creamy polenta, my wife’s grilled scallops (“best scallops ever”, she said) and a grilled octopus appetizer. Lovely views of the river, delightful ambience, and quiet and efficient service. A bit pricey but well worth it! Will definitely be back!

Beautiful views of the Hudson. Plan to go 30min before sunset to get a nice, changing view. The entrees were just right in terms of portion sizes (not too large). The service was attentive but not overbearing. I would definitely return!

I truly enjoyed my dining experience at X20. From the minute that we entered the restaurant, we were treated politely. The restaurant had an amazing ambience. The food was superb n delicious. I can’t say enough about my experience. I highly recommend it and will be back in the near future. Thank you. CBS

The views from upstairs are wonderful. All of our dishes were delicious, the service was good but could have been faster and the ice-cream dessert should have arrived before it had melted and had to be sent back.

It was very hot inside the restaurant on one very hot day and evening. We were told that their air conditioning system was malfunctioning. The quality of the expensive dishes were not as good as I remember it being the last time that I dined there about 6 years ago. An unpleasant experience overall.

Food was lovely, as was the dining space. Such a stylish space with wonderful views. The service was AMAZING! The two gentlemen that took care of my party, Xavier being one of them, were so pleasant, friendly and attentive. It was a fantastic dining experience.

X2O used to be a special, fine dining experience... apparently not anymore.

Last night, although the food was very good, most everything else was at best average for sure not worth the money. Server was not attentive, almost non-existent, we waited a long time for her to come over to our table when we arrived and I had to go ask someone to send her over at one point during the evening. She never checked in with us through the meal to see if we needed anything or how our food was. The bus people didn't know whose food was whose when they served, they kept trying to clear plates before all were finished eating and water wasn't refilled. After our expensive bottles of wine were opened, they weren't decanted and no one ever came back to pour more.

Our table rocked back and forth and the lights above our table kept going on and off. Disappointing. And one last thing. I called about a week before our dinner to actually make the reservation and the person I spoke to said that they were fully booked on the day I wanted the reservation and had no room for the number of people in our party. Minutes later to double check, I went on Open Table and booked a table for 8 on the day I requested when I called and at the exact time....even the woman answering the phone didn't get things right!

We’ve been dining at X2O since it opened and it’s always been a wonderful experience. Last night we were seated upstairs (no elevator and a difficult climb for our party—all being over 70). There was an 80th birthday party spreading out over several tables. As would be expected, it was noisy. And it was difficult to get our server’s attention at times. Overall a good experience that could have been outstanding.
