“A Most Memorable Meal”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Xaviers has an excellent well deserved reputation and tonight's meal was completely superior in every way. The staff was most welcoming and the service was perfect. But chef George DeMarsico's work in the kitchen was amazing. He created the most perfect King salmon dish that I have ever tasted. It melted in your mouth and the combination of foods with this perfect poached salmon was indeed inspired. We had the summer menu featuring fresh foods from the Farmer's Market nearby and each of the 5 courses was a stand-out starring the most tiny perfect details to add to the blending flavors. All 5 courses were unique and complete perfection. Chef George is a genius. Be sure to visit this summer on a Sunday night for the special menu (get your reservations). So worth the trip no matter where you come from to find this restaurant!

“Consistently the finest food anywhere”
Reviewed June 19, 2012

Our favorite restaurant for more than 20 years, it never fails to deliver the most delicious food in the most interesting ways with impeccable service. Intimate atmosphere in a small room, they will treat you like royalty. Reservations are essential well in advance. It has gotten a higher rating for food from Zagat's than any restaurant in Manhattan for the past several years, so that should tell you something. They've relaxed their dress code, which is a shame, but business is business I guess. Go for a special occasion, go to check it out, but go!

“We love it”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

This is our favorite special occasion restaurant. I love the staff here and the food is always incredible. If there is something special that you like (or don't like) let them know when you make the reservation and they will adjust the tasting menu. For example, we sometimes request a seared foie gras, and we've been there with some guests who had multiple food restrictions but were accommodated with grace.

This is a very small restaurant - maybe 40 seats in total, so a reservation is essential.

They do special wine events sometimes, which are fun and a good value.

Look for gift cards at Costco - they represent a very good value and you can use more than one at a time (there is a cap, but it's pretty high).

There are two down-sides to this restaurant:
- parking in Piermont is always a nuisance. And sometimes I always manage to be parking in a downpour.
- the decor is lovely (roses, crystal accents) but is tired. Time for a refresh.

Xaviars in Piermont is truly gourmet. It is intimate, romantic and aesthetically finished.

The service is perfect and the food is to die for. I had an amazing halibut with couscous. My wife had a salmon which was amazing (and I normally will not eat salmon). The asparagus with crab meat tasted like desert and the desert tasted like heaven!

It is worth every penny if you are dining with your sweetheart!!
