The food wasn’t as good as it was priced, nor was the wine.

$10 valet parking, 7 minute wait for car, fire alarm next to us went off twice, hovering bus ppl trying to clear plates which we were clearly eating from, interrupting I tr’s see conversation repeatedly minutes apart to try and take our order. Ordered sea bass, they should have mentioned they server the head on skeleton. Raining, cars cannot be brought near door, $10 for valet and you can’t walk over with an umbrella

Food and atmosphere was great. However the service was subpar and some of the staff was rude. Somewhat shocking for a restaurant of this quality.

Overall, the food was very good. The wait staff waa slow with drink refills and confused our doggie bags! Dessert was not good at all. It was a very large piece of cake with chocolate mousse. The buttercream was orange in color! We wondered if it was left over from the wedding party that was there earlier. It was a major disappointment because usually everything is top notch. I've been dining here for years. This won't stop us from going back, but I am going stick to the creme brulee!

Parking is terrible, plan ahead.
Great place, the atmosphere, the food, and service all top shelf. Service was a little slow, but I don't know if that was by design. Definetly not lack of trying or attentiveness. For my anniversary with family, it was what I was looking for.

Overpriced.
Hostess Unaccomodating to outdoor seating.
Seemed to be staffing issue after leaving seeing outdoor seating 1/2 filled.
Entree (halibut special) cold.

X20, as always, is a lovely place for a relaxed, "fine dining" meal. Service was a bit slow at the beginning but once started, all courses moved along at a good pace (not rushed, not too slow). And of course the setting is lovely, especially soothing for those of us who come up from the city.

And since this is a review for a restaurant, the food was, as always, tasty, well prepared, with great presentation. We all ordered from the lunch three course menu, with one of us ordering a special. We were all pleased with our meals.

I was particularly happy to see so many more diners than during our last visit a couple of months ago. Tables are still well spaced so there is no concern for other diners being too close.

May have been a little short - staffed. We had to ask 2 people to order cocktails and had to pour our own 2nd glasses of wine . The waiter was knowledgeable and helpful.

We have been long champions of x2o and Peter Kelly. However service has deteriorated.

Staff at the front desk seemed overwhelmed and over run by interruptions by other staff members collecting and depositing menus.

We were seated on the upper level. There were empty tables. Consequently it is difficult to understand why it seemed understaffed. The staff seemed disorganized and inattentive.

I am happy to admit that when we did engage the wait staff were polite and pleasant.

BTW when reservations are made patrons should be advised that there is no elevator to the upper level, which made access difficult for elderly and handicapped guests!

Very high low experience. Place smells very strange. Food was good but not great. Ambiance on the deck is 11/10 but there were some women who were sitting there for hours drinking next to us and they were just being offered more and more alcohol. They were a mess and loud and obnoxious. Outdoor could use some background music so it doesn't feel like you're in commune with those sitting next to you. Butter served with the bread is a cold chunk of a stick of butter which is totally unappetizing and really bizarre considering the cost of the food. Overall nice for the location but I wouldn't recommend it.
