The biggest disappointment is the wine list & staff's lack of knowledge of their wines. We have a deep & wide knowledge of wines & what struck us is that there are several on the menu with which we knew nothing, so we asked for advice. The 1st server kept speaking about a popular CA wine, which we weren't interested in. I (female) asked him a few questions about some other wines and when he answered my questions he would not look at me, rather he looked at & spoke to my partner (male), with nonsense answers. He said they had a sommelier, who then came to our table, but his knowledge was maybe 1 step up from the other server's.

Putting aside the poor wine experience & being completely dismissed as someone who has valid questions about the wine, we enjoyed the food, the ambiance, and we will go back.

This was extremely enjoyable! Seating & drinks were prompt. We ordered tuna tartar app, it was excellent- and beet and burrata salad. It was also very good but thought it could be better without the puff pastry bottom (maybe something lighter as not to compete with that glorious burrata). I was bored with myself for ordering a hanger steak, but WOW! It was not your average hanger steak! It was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and complemented with a heavenly bernaise and over some kind of red wine reduction. Flanked aside it was the creamiest mashed potato and a roasted bone with seasoned marrow for additional dipping. Green beans crispy and tasty. My husband got the short ribs, which initially I was jealous about, but when we both got our meals, I preferred the hanger steak despite the fact that the short ribs were also the most tender fall off the bone goodness that a short rib could possibly be. On nights I go to bed hungry, my mind will undoubtedly rewind to that evening and leave me dreaming about that hanger steak. I will be back.

The meal and the service were excellent which is outstanding given the crush of Valentine’s Day diners.
The duck was so good: crispy outside, moist inside.

This place has gone way downhill. Service was awful, meal was mediocre, very underwhelming. Felt like a banquet dinner, not a 5 star restaurant. Too bad, used to love this place.

Julian ensured we had a phenomenal dining experience. Food had flavor in every bite and the service was bar none. Definitely a restaurant you have to visit, this was one of the best outings I've had in years. Just imagine eating on a beautiful waterfront, with flavors that will impress even the toughest food critics of today. Yes, all X20 Saviors on the Hudson.

We went for Valentine's day dinner. Food was mostly very good but not worth the check. I asked to be seated by the window at the time of reservation, it was not honored. We waited exactly 1 hour to order our food, we had to remind the waiters. Service was well below average. Price quite expensive for level of service and quality of food.

This is considered one of the best restaurants in lower Westchester, run by a (at least locally) famous chef. And indeed, the food is very good, as is the wine list. I was especially impressed by the service, which was swift, efficient, and extremely courteous. I also liked that while there were many table in the dining room, they each had enough space between them to allow for comfortable dining. And the view can't be beat. An excellent establishment; I'd happily return.

Normally a favorite, we decided to try X2O for Valentines Day. Big mistake. Turns from a wonderful experience into a factory! While they need to make hay while the sun shines, the experience was not in keeping with the nature of the place. We were rushed through our meal, never offered any of the usual niceties of a real restaurant -- did we want pepper on our salad?, coffee with our desert?, etc. First priority was getting the table turned over.

Would return for a normal dinner, but never again for Valentine's Day.

Celebrated Valentines Day 2018 having a romantic dinner at X20. We have been here several times... Anniversary, Mother’s Day, Valentines Day. It’s a romantic place with great food. Can be pricey (especially on special days like VALENTINES DAY... fixed price per person, from a set menu. Recommend you visit on a regular day so your able to order from the regular menu, they have a great rib eye for two that’s worth every penny. The red velvet cake is divine. The seafood stuffed crepe was wonderful. It a hidden gem in Yonkers. Also I have seen some Groupon specials for a party of two and four that bring price to dine here more accessible.

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere. Amazing amount of choices for starters and dinners. Beautiful room and dining experience including service professionals. High ceilings with great light. The views are also amazing...(Still good despite fog!) Ample portions of really tasty food. Unforgettable! X20 is always one of our first choices for special occasions and never disappoints. Can't wait to go back !

X2O is perfect on every dimension. We have gone to brunch, lunch and dinner, many times. Also, if they offer a Groupon, be sure to nab one. Lastly, try the Cowboy ribeye to experience firsthand the marvel Peter Kelly created to defeat the great Bobby Flay on Iron Chef.

Entryway to elevator reeked of garbage. Both roast sirloin and pork entrees were less than what I've come to expect from Peter Kelly. Dining room shabby - wall from entrance to kitchen filthy, windows not clean, 3 light bulbs in chandelier needed replacing. Service was excellent.

Xaviers is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is delicious, with the real flavors shining without a lot of sauces to cover up the delicious food. Everything on your plate works together to compliment each other. The service is excellent, without being obtrusive and all of the staff is warm and approachable. In addition to all of this, the views of the Hudson River looking to the city are spectacular! I live in Rockland County and it is a 30 minute drive with reasonably priced Valet Parking. X20 is a gem! A little oasis that I heartily recommend!

We had 5 different people wait on our table and this made the service feel somewhat impersonal. The view would’ve been nice in the day but at night not much was visible. The food took a long time to come at each point. Notably dessert took almost 20 minutes. Not good!

View of the Hudson is beautiful and each course was delicious. We got ripped off with the passed hor d'oeuvres because the waiters seemed to avoid our table the whole time, but then the waiter brought us some plates with a few of each appetizer on it. They keep your champagne glass filled at all times during the meal which is also very nice.

We went for my sister’s birthday. We came on a Sunday during the brunch hours (12pm-2pm). The environment was great and the food overall was delicious. We did have a an issue or two:

- lamb was cold and chewy
- unlimited appetizers took long to come around

Overall, it was great experience and we will definitely be coming here again!

The Japanese Custard appetizer was deemed absolutely outstanding by my wife.

I very much enjoyed both my butternut squash soup which had a nice flavorful addition of ginger courtesy of the ginger marshmallows.

The pork chop entrée, while not too exciting, is very well prepared and very tasty as the sides to the meal were a nice compliment.

Overall a most enjoyable meal.

Food was too salty. Servers tried taking away our food and drinks at least 4 or 5 time before we we were done. Waited forever to order our food and to get our check but was rushed through our actual meal. Was offered a free desert but instead of comping one of the deserts we ordered they brought us an entirely separate desert we did not order (was totally wasted). Bar was lovely but restaurant itself felt like a wedding hall. Had to pay for valet parking who took forever to retrieve our car. Wanted to like the place but cannot recommend.

We sit at the bar for a 28 minutes and No one of the bartenders have delicacy to hand us a the cocktail menu they don’t even make eye contact with other customers. But when we finally have a table the waitress was so nice and very professional

Like an architects renderings the promise was
was presented but results managed to
be less than the art.
The staff, well trained but with a street edge , lead the evening contrast. Their execution, well rehearsed, went very well. Our shared appetizer a seafood custard continued the trend of unusual contrasts. Delicate and nicely prepared the flavors were quite good. Presented on a broad plate with a a plain white doily and placed in a small tall bowl made it simply unremarkable. Then the contents, despite the developed flavors was a mish mash of fish/shellfish bits, pieces as if they were remnants of another meal. Then to add a “why” to the dish were three tempura green beans placed on the doily leaching oil and lacking th customary crunch found with well executed tempura. When the entree arrived - cowboy rib eye for two- it arrived with a red bandanda tied to to the rib bone. No it did not make us wheel around and yelp “Yee Haw” . The accoutrement, spinach and creamed scalloped potatoes, were tastefully not over salted and a nice accompanyment to a steak that was ample, prepared to appropriate temperature and truly well presented despite the cowboy dew rag. That said this steak @ $90 for two lacked the richness and tenderness that we expected. Solid but not more than that.
Overall the staff was dedicated to our overall pleasure and the kitchen did just a fair job.
