Description: 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.

“Truly excellent - deserves all the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I had heard and read so many promising things about this restaurant, and my experience validated every one of them. The menu was truly creative and interesting, which presented me and my guest with some hard choices. Everything we ordered was impecably prepared and delicious. The service was superior. The prices were far below what I would expect from this level of experience. I can't wait to go back.

“perfect sunset, perfect food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

We got there just at the right time, enough light to get the car parked and a drink in hand as the sun was setting. (use the valet parking)
The staff was gracious without being obtrusive, there was a long list of specials to go with the already amazing menu. I had the kumihimo oysters as an appetizer followed by the skate. My companion had the seasonal special salad and the short ribs of beef. For dessert we tried two of the cheeses from the cart.

There were a number of large tables celebrating special occasions, the staff was able to keep them happy without forgetting the rest of the restaurant.

The only detraction: there is a very limited selection of beers and not all of them are available. With so many great local breweries there should have been more than one Capt. Lawrence or something from Peekskill available.

My family and I went for Brunch here and loved it so much that we've booked it for my daughters Bridal Shower in September.
