    Not your standard Mexican variety food - very good quality, great flavor and more "upscale" than your typical taco/burrito restaurant. Dining alfresco was nice, though a lot of traffic in the downtown Wayne area. A bit pricey when you add drinks and apps, but overall we would definitely recommend.

    We arrived and were pretty much ignored by the hostess who was busy fiddling around with the computer. Another group got up and handed her their check with their charge card instructions and she started to take care of them while we stood there. We finally had to ask again to be seated. Not a great start at all. Got a table and ordered lunch but waited a very long time for our food to arrive. One diner left because the service was so slow. Were given complementary chips and delicious home made pico to make up for the LONG wait. Lunches arrived and each dish was delicious. Price was good - 2 item $9.99 lunch special. Clearly they had a kitchen issue today in terms of service but I would go back for the fresh tasting Mexican food.

    Walks at this place and always that it looks cool. Wanted to check it out for Main Line Restaurant Week, so few friends and I decided to go to dinner. The food was really good but we had subpar service. The waiter was kind of negative and a little awkward. The food was all delicious but the portion sizes but very small for dinner. Also, the margarita I got wasn't the one that I ordered, which was disappointing. Overall, I think the restaurant is a little overpriced for what we were seeing... Still had fun, though!

    We really enjoyed our meal. Four of us and our entres ranged from steak , to sea food to veggie. Great variety , very well done. The place is very chic and they had a Mexican dancer in full traditional dress. She danced for about ten minutes of the time , so not overbearing. Our night was Mexican Independence Day so the festive , and somewhat loud , stuff was expected. Might have been a bit noisy for a business dinner, but we loved it and had a ball. The server was friendly and very gracious. We will definitely go back , soon.

    Xilantro is a wonderful neighborhood restaurant with outside seating when weather permits. The food is quite authentic Mexican and the service was impeccable. The decor and ambiance are top notch and the bar is absolutely gorgeous! This restaurant could easily be situated in NYC. Our reservations were ready when we arrived - a great way to begin the night!

    Our dinner at Xilantro was amazing! I could make a whole dinner just eating their appetizers (the guacamole is green heaven) but do venture into the main courses...you can't make a mistake....this is couture Mexican cuisine!! We're not keen on Tequila, but the wine and bar selections are very will rounded. Our server, Rudolfo was attentive without hovering and helpful in choosing our meal. Looking forward our next dinner at Xilantro.

    A very enjoyable dinner! Started with a guacamole appetizer that was fresh and delicious.Had grouper and shrimp main course served over perfectly cooked rice with asparagus and a killer sauce.Best meal I've had in a while...will be back. The only part of the meal that wasn't exceptional were the chips...too thick for my taste.

    We weren't sure what to expect our first time there. We each got an entree - one filet w/ chorizo crumbled sauce and one pumpkin seed crusted tilapia. Both were excellent - as good as any upscale restaurant. We were pleasantly surprised, I guess we were expecting maybe a tex mex type menu. Will go back for sure.

    We all loved the hip, vibrant atmosphere. Our waitress was warm and attentive and the entire staff was friendly. The menu offered so many inventive takes on Mexican fare, we all had a hard time deciding what to get. The guava-glazed salmon, pork medallions, arrachera steak and seafood enchiladas all proved to be winners. Would definitely return, though be warned: some of the spicier options really do have a kick!

    The food and service were really good at Xilantro. I'm not crazy about the decor. I found it to be overly modern and cold for my taste. It could be that our table's proximity to the entrance on a cold night had something to do with it. However, the main color that was used to decorate the space is not my favorite - green apple. I found it to be a jarring color, not warm and soothing. Nevertheless, I would go back....for the food and service!

    Had been looking forward to eating here. Wine list came, very limited selection (1 Chard, 1 cab etc ) and they didn't have any bottles left of what we wanted. On a Sat night. No other substitutes were available. Then the appetizers. Guacamole was good but the chips that came with them were so salty they were inedible. Main course. Filet with andouille sausage - horrible and looked even worse. Enchiladas with seafood - very bland. Mahi Mahi was best thing. Zero vegetables as sides. Just dried out refried beans and white rice. At almost $30 an entree!! Would not go back.

    We went with a party of 6 to celebrate National Margarita Day. I could not have imagined a better time even if we had been at one of the Margaritaville Restaurnats (and I've been to 4 of them). The food was superb, the tequila amazing, Margarita drink specials outstanding and service superb!! Their guacamole was the best I have ever had. It is so fresh and not oversalted the way some can be. It was perfect and the perfect accompaniement for margarita's. Every member of our party was totally impressed!! Will definitely go back there again!!! We will be celebrating every Feb. 22nd there!!

    Very very disappointed in the food, We were a party of six, We started with the house made guacamole, it was loaded with so much jalapeno pepper rendering it difficult to eat, having 4 12 year olds with us, you'd think they would have offered it mild, I can't imagine the American palate could handle that kids of heat, but ok. I had a vegetarian enchilada, that was so poorly prepared, that I didn't eat any of it, which didn't matter at all to the server, I did inform her I didn't care for it, but she didn't take it off the bill. It came with a side of flag rice, which was terrible, red, green and white rice scooped with an ice cream scooper, all served barely warm, place is really cool, as well as the bar, but even the drinks weren't good

  • Our 1st Xilantro experience
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/8/2013
    This was our first time at Xilantro and the service was terrific. We got great recommendations for our appetizer, though opted for the queso fundido starter. Margaritas are a bit expensive but very well made. Our entrees consisted of the beef enchiladas (and they were truly stuffed with meat to our pleasure) and the seafood enchilada (very tasty and a nice serving). We ended the night with their house coffee (that includes cinnamon and brown sugar) and as a dessert we had the banana churros (delicious!!). It was on Friday and the place wasn't that busy due to the fear of the snowstorm that never happened, but later on by 8:00PM it picked up and tables were filling up rather quickly (we got there at 6:30). Overall great experience.

    We have been to Xilantro several times and food and service have been excellent. On the recommendation of the bartender we decided to return & try All you can get Tacos on Tuesday. We were seated and given their full dining menu. The waiter approached and took our drink order. Tacos were not listed on the menu we were given so had to ask what selections were. They then gave us bar menu. Then we found out they also had drink specials. The waiter should have told us all specials prior to ordering. Food was very good, but we ended up over paying for this Taco Tuesday event.

    Our third time there in the past 9 mos. First two times were great. This time was only okay. The Xilantro Especial margarita was not as good as the first two times there. The first one I ordered was not hot at all, and tasted like mixer. The bartender corrected it when I asked. I usually love this drink, but now I'm wondering how much tequila is in this $14 drink. There didn't seem to be as much as the first two times we visited.Victor is a very good server.
