X2O Xaviars on the Hudson is Peter X Kelly’s latest addition to the Xaviars Restaurant Group. It sits in the water on the only turn of the century Victorian pier still in use on the Hudson River. X2O’s Main Dining Salon's 25 foot vaulted ceiling and 3 walls of glass frame offers views of the George Washington and Tappan Zee Bridges, as well as sunsets over the Palisades. Guests encounter dishes incorporating classic French technique with Italian and Spanish influences, and Asian embellishments which create a wholly original cuisine unique to the Hudson Valley. The Dylan Lounge is a vibrant, up-tempo space with a sophisticated and playful bent that offers guests more dining options. Guests are invited to sample a variety of small plates and sushi, while dining at the Communal Table, sushi bar, or at traditional banquette and table seating.

We had heard such wonderful things about this restaurant, but the menu seemed very limited. My husband loves escargot but got sick that night. I don't even remember what I had and it was our "special" anniversary dinner. Kind of expected more from such a famous eatery.

Xaviars X2O on the Hudson is just a wonderful evening for celebration, great food and great service. It was my best and oldest friends 60th birthday and my wife and I decided to treat our long time friends to a really special meal, few and ambiance. We had been here once before for a wedding celebration in the summer and... More

This was our third New Year's Eve dinner at X2O. We were a little concerned that it wouldn't seem as special the third time around, especially since we had also dined there twice in November, including Thanksgiving. Not to worry. It was the best ever! From the delectable amuse (two pieces of tuna sushi) to the truffles served after dinner... More

The food is very good, but not up to par for what we expect from Peter Kelly. The ambiance isn't very intimate as it's an open space with high ceilings, although the view up and down the hudson is spectacular. Service was good, and the staff was friendly. For the money, we would prefer the Piermont locations. Still have to... More

I don't even understand all the excellent reviews. This place was a disappointment on so many levels. Staff dribbled the wine while pouring it. Bumped into you while serving and clearing -- every time. Waiters mumbled while speaking. They didn't seem to understand their own specials when asked for further explanations. Bent forks!! Food was cold. Soup was cold!! Some... More

Owner Chef Peter Kelly has mastered the art of preparing great food combining great service and perfect atmosphere with a Hudson River view of the Palisades, George Washington bridge and Tappan Zee bridge.
