We had the 5-course prix fixe
We had the 5-course prix fixe dinner. It consisted of an oyster appetizer (good), ham and egg salad (excellent), asparagus risotto (very good), filet mignon (very good), and a mango dessert (very good). Service was excellent. The place was beautiful in an old-fashioned, opulent way.

The tasting menu was phenomenal.
The tasting menu was phenomenal. The scene is quiet. The staff is impeccable.
The only thing that was discordant with the experience was the two TV's mounted on the wall that played old 3 stooges movies over and over again. This was a peculiarity that I did not quite understand. I don't know if that was supposed to be a trademark but I did not get that aspect of the restaurant

Modern elegance exudes from the decor in a fun quirky way. The service was impeccable and the food refine and flavorful. Hospitable touch: I was offered reading material as I was dining solo, current issues of Vanity Fair, National Geographic and Vogue, nice touch! A simple menu selection with exciting flavors served with modest flair made choosing wonderfully difficult. Server was knowledgable and allowed me to enjoy my dining time. XO will be a must dining stop when I return to Montreal. Thank you for the pampering.

Beautiful unforgettable dining!!!
Just simply great restaurant and service. Lots of attention to details. Most beautiful place for dining in Montreal. Highly recommend their tasting menu with wine pairing. Really great choice!!! We celebrated our daughter 14th birthday and she was really impressed. Definitely will go back. Perfect for special occasion or romantic dining.

I do go in five star restaurants
I do go in five star restaurants quite often and I have to say that this was in my top 5. The tasting menu was simply amazing...there are so many details in the plate that makes all the difference.

Friendly efficient service. Interesting menu; not too wide a range. Excellent presentation. Two of us had the cod but were not blown away. The lobster and swordfish were excellent. Desserts and appetizers were also enjoyed.

Back again, even better
My wife and I celebrated her birthday and we were treated like royalty. Our second time in 3 months and we were remembered, greated by name and then we enjoyed an extraordinary tasting menu with exquisite wines.

Great evening of dining
We tried the tasting menu which was excellent excepting possibly the bison which didn't quite come off and was a little bland. 8 courses over close to 3 hours but the spacing between servings was just about right as we never felt we were waiting too long. Getting started can be a little slow if you are hungry as you can wait a while before the menu arrives but overall the food and service were excellent from that point onwards. Would definitely return for a special occasion.

Excellent upper class restaurant
Expensive food, but gourmet in every way. Delicious to the last. The wine list was very extensive, as well.

It was better the first time around
It was my second visit at the XO and as usual the food and the presentation were outstanding. I was a little bit disappointed by the service. Water was spilled all over the table every time our glasses were filled up and it was the samething with wine.

Top restaurant with knowledgable staff, outstanding (seasonable) menu. Posh and romantic with lovely alcoves. Wine list not only has some beautiful choices, but priced reasonably.

Menu gastronomique découverte absoluement splendide, avec de belles découverte, une parfaite maitrise des saveurs et des assemblages. Le service est par contre beaucoup plus confus, voire amateur. Mas l'expérience est magnifqiue dans un cadre superbe.

Excellent in all ways!
We had a 9:30pm reservation so that we could freshen up from our 11 hour train ride from NYC. We were delighted that Taste Montreal began that evening and we enjoyed a wonderful, delicious, "Top Chef"-like 3 course meal for much less than it was worth. The restaurant sits in what we supposed was the lobby of the St. James Hotel - high ceilings, columns - wonderful ambience. The service was impeccable and very friendly. We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys fine food!

First time at XO and it wont be my last. The service was superb. The food original and delicious. Decor inspiring. My risotto was a little to salty for my taste, butit was still very good.

Une autre belle découverte
Dans le cadre de Montréal à table, nous avons pu découvrir ce restaurant très agréable et romantique. Très hâte d'y retourner pour un menu dégustation complet !
