X2O Xaviars on the Hudson
Dinner was wonderful! Our party of four was celebrating our wedding anniversary and we all enjoyed dinner immensely. The seafood crepes, gem lettuce salad and Caesar salads were outstanding. The main courses included scallops, halibut (special) and sweetbreads and are all cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The mini baguettes were fresh and warm and delicious. The lovely desserts and Prosecco ended a wonderful dining experience. We shall return!
Food was spectacular. Especially the special ravioli and sashimi appetizers and the skate. Service impeccable. Best restaurant in Westchester!
Lunch is always a great deal. We've been taking advantage of the prix fixe at X2O for years, which reflects our opinion. Whole the menu is relatively constant, with some changes in sauces, for example, usually there are seasonal specials. This time there was a scallops in a corn sauce that was incredible. Truly a taste tour de force. As always, the entire meal was a delight.
We were there for lunch and the menus was prix fix with some options of al la carte. We chose the prix fixe. We also had some choices of specials within the menus. It was wonderful. The price was extremely reasonable and the food your money’s worth. The service was discreet and efficient. We enjoyed the whole experience and will be back.
As always, Xaviars never disappoints. The seafood crepe was amazing! And the duck and salmon entrees were so well seasoned and cooked.
I made a note on our reservation that it was our anniversary and they remembered and brought dessert with a candle.
I love the atmosphere, the view, the food, and the drinks.
Will definitely come back.
Lovely setting as always. Food not as tasty as I remember. Rather bland. Can’t beat the view though. $40 corkage fee was steep!
Wait staff were enthusiastic, friendly but inexperienced. Décor of the restaurant has not changed since it opened. Food was excellent. Confusion about valet parking. Parking attendant requires pre-payment but front desk validates parking stub. Is the valet collecting payment when he should not be?
Was delighted that X2O took my recommendation to add specials to the menu as it seemed to be the same appetizers and the same entrees and the same desserts on every visit. This time two wonderful specials appeared. One was a schrimp and asparagus tempura for an appetizer and the other was a roasted Alaskan Cod with curried coose coose and varied veggies. I selected both options and they were both outstanding!
The food and atmosphere is always a plus at x20
We went with another couple for two of our birthday. Relaxing beautiful atmosphere. Food was fantastic. Wait staff did not rush you.
We love eating at x2O. The food was wonderful and the view is spectacular.
Excellent food and service as always. I love all the Xaviar group restaurants. They never disappoint.
X2 O is a lovely setting on the water in Yonkers.
The menu is very intersting and we ordered 3 appetizers for the 2 of us, because we couldn’t make up our minds. We had octopus, steamed custard with shellfish, and lettuce with Stilton cheese. All were very delicious. My husband had the chicken kiev and it was moist, I had the evening’s special halibut with pesto. On the side we ordered creamed spinach. The pesto on my fish was not the typical pesto, it was herbs and oil and lacked the zing I expect with pesto. Still the meal was good. The spinach however was so salty as to be inedible. Quite a surprise from such a vault d kitchen. We skipped
dessert because we had such a big meal, but the kitchen sent out a buttermilk flan because it was my birthday. The flan was the perfect accompaniment to this meal.
So the summary, loved the setting, enjoyed all the food except the spinach, and will return the next time we are in the lower Hudson Valley.
We have been loyal customers since X2O's inception in 2007. Always treated with sincere, yet professional , service in a gorgeous setting right on the banks of the Hudson River with stunning views of the Palisades, GW Bridge you will have an enjoyable, delicious dining experience and, chances are, it may become your "go to" fine dining restaurant as it is ours!
We have written so many reviews for X2O. We go there an average of once per month. That in and of itself should give an indication of our opinion of the restaurant. Try it...... you''ll like it,
We hadn't been here for several years, but the food is still to a very high standard. We all had fish and every dish was well composed and both looked and tasted great. The room has one of the most beautiful views in the NY area. The Palisades to the West, the skyline to the South and the broad expanse of the Hudson to the North. Spectacular!
Delicious food, an exceptional staff and the most beautiful sunset on the Hudson made for perfection. Thank you!
Service was not very good and its always impossible to get your car. I went too times and both times they could not find my kryd.
Food was beautifully prepared, and excellent quality.
Great service. Beautiful view.
Anyone who has been to X20 will already know that the food is exquisite and well presented. This was certainly true at the Sunday Brunch. I would rather take this moment to congratulate the staff. The attention to detail and politeness brought to the dining experience by the young staff of high school and university age would contradict any negative perception of the engagement, ability or professionalism of today's young people. Kudos to the proprietor for giving young people the opportunity to acquire valuable life skills in the service industry and kudos to the members of the X20 staff for making our celebratory brunch an outstanding one.
I have been going to Xaviars, ever sense there doors opened and have NEVER had a bad experience.
I have to talk myself out of going there sometimes. Fantastic staff, great food and worth every penny!!!!
You'll love it.
Appetizers were excellent,things brought to table were excellent entree poor dessert good
Everything was amazing. The rib eye for 2 was the best I’ve ever eaten. Apps I had the seafood crepe was amazing and the banana walnut bread pudding for desert incredible
Ambiance was wonderful. The staff was very attentive and let us soak in the sights and sounds.
I went for my anniversary and The food and service were top class. Brittany (the server) made it that much better and everything was impeccably cooked.
The ambiance and service were the best we have seen, staff were professional and courteous. The food was good but with some caveats. My wife had a hanger steak which was somewhat dry and the spaetzle dry and overcooked. I had salmon which was overcooked. In my case, it was replaced very quickly and was much better.
The view, wait staff, food were all outstanding. Although the area is “funky,” I will definitely go back. Prices are high, but it’s a 5 Star experience all the way.
Beautiful looking but Very disappointed in food. If you like a delicious meal you won’t get it here. They are totally taking advantage of the location,view and high end look of the place. You’ll get better food at TGI Friday’s.
Food was great, so was location. There was valet parking but because it was so crowded in this area, getting car back took soooo long.
We have never had a poor meal or experience at X2O Xaviars on the Hudson.
Perfection!!! Everything was spectacular, including the view!!
Excellent as usual, the food is delicious, my son and I favorite restaurant in Westchester, next time I’ll go with friends
Wonderful ambiance. Went to celebrate our anniversary and the staff acknowledged the evening during desert. Staff was friendly and attentive and views were extraordinary.
We celebrated 59 years of marriage although we did not mention it. We always are amazed with the food, service and views. We requested a table with view as usual . .... got it. Still telling our friends about our excellent lunch at X02.
The food was not as good as I remember it being when we went on previous occasions. My grilled Octopus app was tender but it lacked the char I expect on the outer skin. My wife’s Halibut special was over salted and a bit over cooked. Our friend had the Skate and he said that the taste was off , as if the fish was not fresh. The peach cobbler desert special was excellent. The service was good as usual and the view of the Hudson River is awesome. Because the great experiences had on our previous visits to X2O, we are willing to give it another try and hope that this was just an off night for the kitchen.
Food and service were superb! No complaints at all.
Reception staff very below par for a restaurant of this caliber. Waitress was ok but rest of wait staff also sub par due to lack of training not desire to do well. Food may be my expectation was too high.
Absolutely delicious and the ambience was great. Will be back!
Always terrific. We feel the menu might have been somewhat more adventurous in the past but despite that small quibble the execution of everything is so strong that we keep returning.
The food as always was very good, the service HOWEVER not so good. They were extremly dis-organized and there was not a manager anywhere. Maybe summer is not a good time to go they have skeleton crew BUT the crew was not helpful at all
