Food is always Great. May have been an off night with service as far as the waiter, but his support staff was doing a great job.

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.

Went here for my birthday/valentine’s day celebration and had a great time! Food was amazing, service was great and the staff was so kind. Too fancy for everyday dining, but this place is perfect for celebrating special occasions! Definitely recommended

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.
X2O remains our go to special occasion restaurant.

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.

Not as good as previous visits, very slow service and the food was not served as hot or as warm as it should be served. I have visited the X20 restaurant a number of times previously and this visit was not up to par.

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!
