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.

“Poor Valentine's Day”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2010

Perhaps Valentine's Day was a bad choice to go for brunch but we had great expectations of this restaurant and the only good thing about it was the view. We were given a table that was wobbling and which we had to hold on each end in order to eat. We told the waiter, who did absolutely nothing, we told the Maitre d' who told us that the tables were rented and they're all like that (which wasn't true because no one else seemed to have that problem) and it wasn't like the room was full and we couldn't be moved. We were supposed to get champagne; but never did nor were we asked if we wanted it...instead they gave us the wine list.
The waiters were totally uncoordinated and the service was terrible; we couldn't keep track with which waiter was ours! Also, while I was still eating my entree, the waiter came to take my plate because my husband had finished his...
The chairs were scratched and the carpet could have use a good vacuum!
Perhaps if it were dark, this wouldn't have been noticeable.
This restaurant was recommended by friend and was reviewed by Anthony Bourdain but it was a complete disappointment!

This restaurant was so good from start to finish, that although pricy, we had to go twice! The food is mouth-watering, the service is impeccable and the view is breathtaking! Even the bathroom was awesome!

“A Very Special Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2009

Don't miss this very special restaurant. Beautiful, glass-walled dining room with spectacular views of the Hudson River and Palisades. Most of all, great food attentive service and wonderful presentation.
