We love this place.
Always really good, exxo has become our most visited restaurant. The fish is fabulous, the chicken terrific, the skewers perfect. Prices are reasonable, and service is friendly and competent. Our one criticism is that we don't really care for the wines that are available, so we stick to water or beer. It would be nice if they expanded the wine list..

Exo is probably my favorite Greek restaurant. Great food with a modern spin, great service and the White Sangria is unbeatable. Exo is my first choice any time I wanna go out for dinner or drinks.

Modest menu boasts big flavor
The food at Exo is really very good. Dishes are plated nicely and the flavors are great. I had the octopus, which was unbelievably tender and buttery. The souvlaki sandwich was tasty, but ok, The fries it cames with though...soooooo good. They had been bathed in olive oil, and trust me, that's a good thing. Also, make sure you leave room for dessert and get the chocolate souffle. You won't be sorry.

We were very pleasantly surprised during our recent visit for my husband's birthday. The food was excellent especially the Tiger shrimp appetizer. the Triple souvlaki plate was also a hit. We were, however disappointed with the mahi mahi which was on special. The serving was small and stuffed with I have no clue what since we were not told when offered it. It seemed to be very overpriced for what we received. On the whole we enjoyed our visit and finding out we had a lovely bistro in our neighborhood. We will definitely go back.

John the Manager was amazing! His welcoming approach made the evening an exceptional experience. Great care and customer service. His enthusiasm was evident. He enjoys his job and you enjoy the evening. He made excellent food recommendations. Food was delicious. Outdoor seating is unique for the neighborhood. Overall an enjoyable experience.

I had made the reservation
I had made the reservation for brunch and received confirmation. 2 hours prior to reservation, I received a phone call saying they weren't serving brunch. We decided to go anyway. There was a bridal shower taking place (which was also not mentioned), but the staff was able to keep everyone happy, and the party did not disturb the regular diners. The food was very good. I have been to EXO for Brunch and dinner. The lunch was the same quality. We were not rushed and a good time was had by all.

The staff was all smiles. James, our waiter was friendly and knew all the menu items and specials without a cheat sheet. Without prompting he brought out three bottles of wine to sample. So while my wife chose wine, he recommended one of their many draft beers that came in an extra tall mug for me. The grilled octopus was tender and flavorful, better than calamari. The salad with apples, figs and goat cheese was also fresh and provided a wild variety of taste experiences. My wife's lamb chops were exceptional and my salmon was thick but light. We were too full to try any dessert. Hint: Choose "tap" when asked so you won't be surprised to pay $6.50 each for your water. The thought "new favorite restaurant" did come to mind.

Finally good food in thneighborhood
The food was very tasty, and the menu was varied. We ate in the enclosed patio and the noise level was very loud, especially fir a Monday night. The Service was a bit slow but I don't think they anticipate the number of people that showed up. I would definitely recommend this to friends and family and would definitely eat here again.

The restaurant only has 1 waitress for the entire restaurant. So when it began to get busy, ppl. We're waiting long periods of time for service, which I overheard some tables complaining about. We were having dessert/ espresso by this time so it did not affect us. If they had at least 2 more wait staff members, I would have given them 5 stars.

We have dined at EXO many
We have dined at EXO many times. The food is always outstanding. What does varie is the service. We loved dining outside, it was a perfect night, but the service, while not awful, there were still times we had to flag people down for water. Also, appetizers came quickly but we had a long wait for main dishes.

Great Casual Spot
My partner and I were tired of dining out at the same places each weekend and decided to try something new. The food was great, very authentic Greek, and the service was amazing. It's a family owned and run place, and it shows from the moment you walk in. We will definitely go back again.
