“Outstanding food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

The restaurant itself could maybe use a little updating, but the food is A+. Everyone was very happy with their meal. In particular, I had the mushroom ravioli and the hanger steak. The creme brulee for dessert was enough for at least 3 people. Service was excellent; water was refilled constantly and the waiters were all very accommodating. It was restaurant month in Lower Hudson Valley, so our meals were $29.95 each - a real bargain for this restaurant. Definitely recommended.

“Great fun with a big group.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This is the place you take friends and just spend a lazy afternoon eating and drinking. The food is great, the service was awesome. We loved the staff and the quiet appeal of the restaurant. We went for the Sunday brunch. Don't eat before you arrive, don't wear a belt, take your time. The food is great. Dessert was my favorite part. Valet parking is there for free. Coat check available.

French bread/ pumpkin bread /blueberry muffins
Caesar salad
Fresh fruit
Eggs Benedict
Bagels with lox
Mushroom ravioli
Crusted salmon with broc. Rabe
Bow ties in a cream sauce with pancetta
Fresh mozzarella and grilled veggies

Desserts: tiramisu, creme brûlée , pecan pie, caramel flan, apple berry pie, fresh berries wi cream, chocolate lava cake, cheesecake, chocolate Mousse,



Tips: make a reservation well in advance. If you want to be in a certain room, tell them ahead of time. I went with six adults and my two kids. My children are both under five so they where not there for the food. Bring coloring or something for the kiddies because brunch will take 3-4 hours. The restaurant will accommodate when they can for allergies or food preferences (this is a really nice gesture). Pace yourself with the alcohol because it keeps coming just like the food. Dessert is best if your okay with sharing with your party. We all literally took a bite and passed the dish to the left. You get like ten different desserts for the table. Awesome experience.

“Xceptional, A Nice Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

This visit to West Point we decided to explore to the South for new places, found this in Conger, NY. The attraction that brought us there was Small Plates at the Bar - Xceptional. Cheese platter, Shrimp with Chutney Mango, and more.
The bar was pleasant and Dan was attentive and Friendly. A definite return on the next trip with others

“Wonderful spot for lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Restaurant X has been a mainstay in Congers for many years. We usually go for dinner, but lunch is really a perfect time to go. The restaurant is busy but not crowded. The service is perfection and the lunch choices are really amazing. We passed on the prix fixe three course choices because we had limited time on our business lunch (the choices were excellent and hard to pass up). Instead we shared an appetizer of handmade wild mushroom ravioli in a dark wild mushroom sauce that was superior. The sauce was loaded with many kinds of mushrooms and the deep brown sauce was full of flavor. My companion had the Salad Nicoise with seared rare tuna as a main course. Fabulous! I chose the medallions of lamb with a delicious white bean sauce. The beans were slightly al dente and went beautifully with the lamb. The rich sauce was very tasty! The lunch menu has a nice wine list for "by the glass" choices. Of course, bottles of wine are available if you are not working. I highly recommend this restaurant.

“Extremely fine - best Sunday brunch anywhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Food is exquisite - compliments to Peter Kelly the celebrity chef. The Sunday Brunch is perfect for that celebratory special occasion - over 20 courses are served and your table is filled with wonderful desserts to sample - and all of the champagne, mimosa or kir royale you can drink. Its a one of a kind. Steak lover's should come and share the cowboy ribeye for dinner!
