We celebrated my friend’s birthday here (and I’ve dined here several times over the years) and we all enjoyed ourselves. The food is a 4 out of 5 for me. That’s pretty consistent with previous dining experiences there. The atmosphere is so lovely and that makes up the one star that’s missing! Plus you gotta love their homemade peanut brittle in the jar at the check in desk!

X20 is my favorite NY restaurant. Understand that I do not say this lightly. Chef Peter Kelly has been sending out the gorgeous dishes for years now and I am never left wanting. The food is superb and there are enough choices to please even the picky diner. You can't beat the setting on the water with 180 views of NYC. It's great for photos and sunset dinners with a view. The service? You guessed it: Impeccable. TIP: Groupon often offers amazing deals for 2 or 4 people during the week which includes 3 courses and a glass of prosecco. Here is a photo of the special appetizer I enjoyed: king salmon sashimi with cucumber and a dash of mango chili sauce. Yes, it was as delicious and succulent as it looks. Portions are quite generous for a restaurant of this caliber.

My wife and I have dined here 8-10 times. The food is almost always very good to great. This time the duck breast was cooked perfectly. The short rib was full of flavor, but a tad salty, as was the special tagliatelle appetizer with prosciutto and fresh peas. We really liked the Cava, which had honey notes. The wines were generous pours. Service was very good. We are particularly impressed that Peter Kelly has a mission to hire and train local young people, especially young men, who would otherwise not be exposed to such an opportunity. Without exception, they are delightful.

We arrived at 7:55PM for our 8PM reservation and we were not seated until 8:45PM after I had to go into the restaurant myself to find a free table as they told us nothing was available. It was a real shame as it was meant to be a special occasion. It is only because I was pro-active that we ever got seated. I truly think we could have been left to stand in the bar waiting for a table for over 1 hour if I hadn't done something about it.

The restaurant was extremely crowded but that’s because the food was that good! We had reservations and were seated in a timely manner. The service was expeditious. Our orders were correct and we never had to wait for anything that we were in need of. The actual dishes were exquisite! A perfect date! Thank you X2O staff. Most definitely returning and telling everyone about this hidden gem!

We had a great time. Went using a Groupon which is a great deal! They add gratuity automatically which is understandable but don’t tell you so be careful!!! Everything was great. The bread biscuits are delicious and they are very attentive. However it’s slightly confusing how many people are actually waiting on you when there is only one central waiter. There is a person for the bread. A person for drinks. A person who clears the table. And then your actual waiter( who seemed to be the only one who could or was allowed to bring the check). Otherwise everything was great.

The food too salty. The service was poor and the food description on the Manu is inaccurate. When they say that the tuna tartar has pistachios, be prepared for a little pistachio powder on the side.... average restaurant with average water view.

I have been going to this restaurant pretty regularly over the years. Lately I noticed that their service is not as impeccable as before. I also feel that it’s time for them to change their menu a bit.

Perfect in every way. Do not look for parking. Validated valet is 5$.

Restaurant is perfect in every conceivable way. Best in Westchester and better than all except maybe 5 in Manhattan.

Reasonably price with Groupons available. River views, outstanding in all respects, creative menu and something for everyone.

Food was good as usual. Was seated right next to serving station. Constant activity. Very distracting from friends & conversation. Appetizers removed and dinner was served immediately, no time to digest or converse.

Let me start off by saying we've been a fan of X20 and their scrumptious tasting food.

However, their quality dropped drastically. Let's start off with appetizers and end with desserts, like a proper meal.

Appetizers:
Steamed egg: hot bowl, cold eggs.
Pasta special: salty

Entrees:
Rabbit special: extremely salty and sour sauce.
Porkchop: salty and dry

-by this time, the waiters had come around a couple times filling up out water glasses-

Desserts:
Passion fruit sabayon tart: served with melted ice cream. Ice cream everywhere.
Carrot cake: burnt pecan

Honestly, very disappointed with this visit.

One of our favorite restaurants; we often travel from Long Island to dine here. Delicious appetizers include the beet and burrata salad, japanese custard with uni, seafood crepe and octopus. Favorite entrees are the cowboy ribeye for two, the LI skate, scallops, sweetbreads and pheasant. Superior service and a beautiful view overlooking the Hudson. Oh, and you must try the blue cheese biscuits.

This was my first time here and I’m so upset I waited so long!! The food was so good, especially the seafood crepe. I’ve been craving it since Sunday! I love the variety of hors d'oeuvres that are served throughout the entire meal. I can’t wait to go back! The server that stood out to me was Tommy who was kind, friendly, and very helpful.

My husband alway gets the short ribs and I got the duck breast that was cooked to perfection. My friends ordered the pork chops and the diver scallops. We really enjoy this restaurant.

First and last time . Just so disappointed from the moment we arrived
Hostess was not aware of our reservation until she finally found it .
Very unprofessional and a terrible reflection on the established to have such an inexperienced person as the hostess
Next , floors were sticky from the lobby to the dinning room ?
Seriously poor maintenance.
Food was average to say the least
Just totally not worth the efforts to get there
Best part is the reserved wine list .
Rarely do I give a bad review but I want to prevent others from wasting their time and money
Management needs to restart from the ground up
Location has wonderful views
Sorry but must be truthful .

The food, as always, was very good. I was with a group of friends - one hadn't been to X2O before, so I requested a window seat, which was accommodated. The dining room was nearly empty, most likely due to Good Friday/Easter week vacation. Usually I'm at X20 at night - being there during the day brought a different perspective. Flatware was smashed, furniture is chipped - the piece used for the cheese course (empty at lunch) was not "shabby-chic" - merely shabby. And I can say the same about the seats in Dylan's Bar, where we occasionally dine. Peter Kelly, for a restaurant of your caliber, your oversight of your dining areas is really disappointing. I hope that you'll seriously consider renovating.

Beautiful inventive menu and exquisite food. Comprehensive wine list. Beautiful, comfortable room.
All marred by poor service from the moment you walk in: we had a reservation and we were on time but had to wait standing for 20min. for our table to be set up. Meanwhile, the restaurant was half empty. No one offered to take our coats. Our cocktails arrived after the wine was opened, or never showed up. Very nice, knowledgeable sommelier, by the way. Staff was friendly, but untrained and inattentive. For this price level and high quality of food, the whole experience was a disappointment.
