We came here because we loved
We came here because we loved our first visit. For the most part everything was good, but my Tuna which was to have been cooked medium was dry. Everything else was very good. The server was definitely better than the one we had on our first visit, that one on our first visit was hungover and not bad but not nearly as focused as he should have been. There was a rather large party of women that were originially sitting out side but they came inside and I could barely hear myself think, much less talk, but that's what happens when you dine out sometimes and sometimes it may be my group that is loud so you just have to accept that. My friend had the stuffed chicken and it was fabulous. WE will be back.

My friend visiting from Atlanta said it was the best tuna she has ever had!!

I went with a large group of 12 and our server was fantastic... handled a group perfectly, very friendly and helpful and really just a great place. It was busy that night but we had enough space and were not rushed at all. Perfect for eating and talking. All 12 of us had a great time and enjoyed our meal and drinks.

Great for a variety of tastes
I love taking friends here because there is a good selection of portion sizes and vegetarian friendly options. Friendly service and they are always willing to suit specific dietary needs.

Great first experience!
The interior of the restaurant is absolutely beautiful. They were able to accomdate a large party on short notice. We had a combination of vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters and everyone was able to find something they liked. I would like to see more diverse vegan options, but the restaurant does have dishes you can customize. The person who had the crab cakes said they were the best she had ever had!

Lovely brunch on a beautiful day!
I had brunch with one of my best friends this past Sunday at Xtra's. We enjoyed our meal and the service was friendly and prompt. The restaurant's setting is nice and the noise level was perfect for a Sunday afternoon. I plan to return soon!

Enjoyed brunch here with my
Enjoyed brunch here with my husband on a Sunday after church. Service was excellent and the food was very delicious. It is reasonable and easy to park free in the garage on a side street on Cary street. Highly recommend. We will be returning:)

My new favorite brunch spot
Xtra's is great! I always enjoy my meal, and the staff is very friendly. It's great for brunch dates with a sweetheart or with friends. It's such a cute place, and I highly recommend it.

Great Father's Day Dinner
Light crowd on a Sunday night. We shared a fabulous crab dip appetizer and I had a wonderfully flavorful swordfish with a unique and very flavorful succotash and my wife created her own pasta dish which she also enjoyed very much. Attentive service and excellent food.

My first time dining in Carytown and I'm glad we chose Xtra's! Beautiful place, love the atmosphere, very comfortable. Server was just polite enough, but that's alright. Shrimp and grits are one of my favorites, so of course I had to try it - the sausage may have been overkill, but the rest of the plate was delicious! So glad we came out and I'd definitely return.

Very Nice Dinner Spot
Great food, nice location, appropriate for dinner meeting, outside dining available. What more could you ask for?

Good food, great service.
We've been here a few times and it's a good place to go for our mixed group of vegetarian/carnivores. We drank the garnacha on the menu, and it was fantastic! We ordered salads, a couple of the pita pizzas, chicken, and fish dishes. All were good. The only thing we didn't like was the hummus -- it was really bad and no one took more than one taste, although we loved the marinated eggplant that came with it.

Had a lunch meeting here and was my first visit. We had the bruchetta for an appetizer and everyone loved it. The Nantucket Turkey Melt is AMAZING!

I had passed the Xtra's sign many times without realizing it was a restaurant. They have a small but great second-story deck overlooking Cary Street, a hip restaurant area, and a full bar. The menu was interesting without getting too far afield, and all the people in our party enjoyed their meals. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Next time you are near Bangles & Beads, head up the stairs and enjoy Xtra's!

Food was excellent and everyone
Food was excellent and everyone was pleased with their meals. We will be back. Very closed parking deck nearby which makes it easy.

Relaxing atmosphere, excellent food
Menu has good choices. Our party of 4 was very satisfied with all our dishes. Will definitely be back.

Excellent food and service. We were treated with just the right amount of attention. When our food was delayed we were given a hummus appetizer tray that was also outstanding. The stuffed chicken breast was out of this world. Compliments to the chef.

Decent food in a nice seting
The place has nice ambience especially given the very reasonable prices. Food is average.

Always great for brunch
Xtra's Cafe never disappoints us as a dependably good brunch spot. They serve several versions of Eggs Benedict (I had the prosciutto variation this visit) and the eggs are always perfectly cooked, soft but not dangerously runny. The prosciutto was a generous portion for each egg and the best I've had outside of Italy. The Xtra's Omelet was not as successful: spot-on for flavor but somewhat watery from the bruschetta filling. If the tomatoes had been drained and seeded or sauteed to reduce the water content the fantastic seasoning could truly have shined. Service at Xtra's is always good and the balcony view of Cary Street is always entertaining.

Called and changed our reservation to a half hour earlier. Table available and server was great. Friendly staff and carried on conversation with other patrons over Auburn football game ( saw that great final touchdown and it played over and over ). Food was excellent, great presentation. Server friendly, personalbe, kept water filled and drinks moving. Very easy dividing checks between twelve people. Would recommend to anyone. Enjoyed the art deco look to the restaurant and especially the paintings.
