    Four of us dined and all ordered small steaks. Perfectly cooked tender meat, perfect proportions, and beautifully presented on the plate with the assorted vegetables. Our server, Eytan, was great. He knew we wanted some time to visit before the meal and didn't rush us, yet was attentive. It was my first to at XO and I will be back.

    The menu is filled with gastronomic entrees and the appetizer menu is just as lush. We made a meal of soup, salad and a variety of appetizers like the seafood combo, tuna tartare, mushroom truffle raviolis. My wine by the glass was a wonderful complex pinot noir while my dining companion opted for a lemon drop martini which was done perfectly. However service for the two of us less than stellar as we waited for our sparkling water, the bread and our drinks a little longer than agreeable.

    Whe found this downtown gem online and thought it would be good but had no idea it would be this good. Our waiter was pleasant and the food was incredible. Try the grouper fish tacos appetizer. It was awesome. Also had the kobe beef burger and filet mignon. Absolutely delicious. The only minor issue was we waited for out food for quite a while. But if you are not in a rush and want to enjoy a special place with amazing food, I would highly recommend it.

    XO is all that you would expect of a great, high-end steak house. More though, the service was completely efficient, but friendly and attentive. The bartender made a fabulous (non-alcoholic!) specialty drink for our 14-year old (thank you!) Our dinner was a gathering for the extended family, but you'd be just as happy visiting for a weekend date.

    Great server but we had fruit flies swarming our table all evening, we were swatting them away. Also we ordered mojitos and the simple syrup they used had dried up hard pieces that almost chipped my husbands tooth. That is a sign of them not properly washing the syrup bottles or pour spouts. But the server said that it was fine and never offered to remake the drink.

    We set a reservation for 10 and they were able to accommodate us with a short notice for 2 more. The service was outstanding and the Australian Wagyu Strip was as expected, although a little pricey. For the sides, I highly recommend ordering as many as possible - especially the Lobster Macaroni. Again, a great late-night destination. Surprised to find such a warm environment at 10pm.

    Rubs, sauces excellent, sides very good, steaks OK. An 18 oz bone-in rib eye is not so thin that it it should be impossible to cook rare, or at least closer to rare than medium to medium-well. At prices beyond those of the best Bistecca Fiorentina in Florence, one should expect very close to perfection. On the plus side, if you're not trying to show off with your wine selection, you can do very well at a quite reasonable price. If you ARE trying to show off with a wine selection, the opportunity is there.

    My girlfriend and I started by sitting in the outside 'lounge' on some super comfy couches, after 1 or 5 drinks (try the holy water!) we came in for our dinner. Our server was not only super informative when asked about the wine and food menus but also super accommodating as well. We were sat next to a family with a few kids, and although well behaved and quiet, we asked if we could sit somewhere more secluded and maybe a better view. Would you believe they moved us to a private dining area! We had a table window side and the blinds were even opened up a little to improve the scenic street view as well. The food was amazing too, Mushroom Ravioli to start, my darling had the Sea bass and I elected for the Kobe strip, melted in my mouth!

    I brought my brother to XO to celebrate his 22nd birthday! Johnny was our server and his service could not have been any better. He directed us when ordering appetizers and drinks. His recommendations were so helpful and I felt our experience could have not been any better. The food and drinks were top notch. The steak was cooked exactly how we requested, and it was worth every penny. At the end of the meal they brought out a small dessert in celebration of his birthday. I strongly recommend for any special occasion.

    My wife and I dine at XO once a year for her birthday, and every year we leave extremely happy. This year we brought my parents for my mothers birthday, and both my parents were impressed with the food, wine, service, and overall experience. If we could afford to dine at XO every weekend......we would! Keep up the great job XO! See you next July.

    Everything else about XO was great except the steaks. Or how they were cooked, specifically. I asked for my filet medium well. The waiter suggested I butterfly it to retain moisture. It came out so overdone, it was ridiculous. My husband ordered his steak medium, and it came out closer to rare. In hindsight we should of sent it back, but didn't want to be "those people". Will probably chose elsewhere the next time we want a nice steak dinner.

    In general, the food is very good, but I can getting less and less impressed upon visit. Wines are quite expensive - the moderate wines $100 are just run of the mill. Not very busy for a Wednesday night and the service staff although accommodating were not what I expect at more than $125 per person. My experiences at PP were better because the ambience is different. After frequent visits, I am not sure that I will be drawn back to XO Prime at either location.

    Had a tempura lobster app and my wife ordered surf and turf. Both times the lobster tail was perfect. I started with "Southern" crab bisque that was the right amount of spicy and very rich. I had the veal special and loved it. My wife's filet was the right temperature, but she asked for it blackened. It came out with house steak sauce on it instead, which was also tasty. The waiter offered to "fix" it, but how? Wait for another filet to be cooked? The appropriate thing would have been to not charge us for the botched steak add-on. That didn't happen. Given that it was a $75 entree, I didn't bother making an issue over the $2. Delicious meal, but in the increasingly competitive local steakhouse market, details separate good from great.

    Having dined at nearly every restaurant in CLE, this was my first time visiting XO -- for my anniversary. We were seated outside, as requested. The tablecloth and bread plates were dirty, and the window sill next to the table was filthy. Our server was very friendly but not as polished as you would expect at a high end restaurant. We ordered the lobster roll appetizer, which was good but had very little lobster and only one set of chopsticks. Our entrees arrived shortly after our forks and bread plates were taken, and we had to stare at our entrees while waiting for new forks. I ordered the scallops, which were delicious. My husband ordered a filet medium rare -- his steak was nearly well done -- so disappointing for a steak house!

    I took my wife to celebrate her birthday and brought along my daughter. My wife ordered a glass of chardonnay. While it wasn't spoiled, it was the flavor she was seeking. Too fruity I think. No problem says our server, he brings out a glass of a different chardonnay and all is well. I ordered the tempura crab & shrimp sushi was good. My wife was delighted with her beet salad. I had a mixed greens salad (and I had them hold the fennel). It was delicious. We all had filet mignon and they were all delightful. We ordered the creamy corn which was delicious. My wife ordered potato croquettes for a side and she liked them. All in all a very positive experience.

    Dressed up for a concert, We enter the restaurant about 6:30pm, a server approached us with a confused look and asked"how can I help you? " she lead us passed 2 couples to are table. We ordered drinks and an appetizer of Tiger shrimp, I want unimpressed by the box of small fried shrimp, after what seemed like forever we received are meals, I ordered medallions which were excellent, slightly salty. My boyfriend had fish which was nice but the ravioli that accompanied it was bland, he also ordered small mashed potatoes on the side, this turned out to be a large bowl that could of served 3-4 people. For such an elegant setting and high end price I expect better service time, light music and exciting appetizers.

    Our favorite steak place in Cleveland has always been and continues to be XO Downtown. We took our niece to dinner on Saturday night for her birthday, and everything was wonderful as it always was. My husband's steak was a bit overdone, but it was taken away without argument and a new one..perfectly cooked....replaced it in short order. Our server Johnny was fantastic, and went out of his way to make this a memorable dining experience,,,including creating an amazing dessert for our niece's birthday.

    I went to XO steaks for a nice dinner with my fiancee and mother. Our apps were amazing (I recommend the lobster rolls), not the best steak I've ever had in my life but really quite excellent. Overheard (yes I was eavesdropping a bit) a diner at another table tell the waiter his steak was not cooked to the right level, and not only was the steak replaced/cooked longer but the restaurant also took half off the entire table's bill. The employees are so lovely, even down to the busboy who stopped what he was doing to walk me to the bathroom.

    This is a high price steak house. Most of the steaks are $40-$75. Everything on the menu is ala carte. I was on a budget so I ordered a $29 dollar steak. The waiter warned me that the cut of meat had very little fat and might be tough. I thought, "how tough can it be at a place that is this expensive? I ordered it medium to promote tenderness. The answer: The steak was inedible. The chef clearly doesn't want to cook a lower priced cut of beef in a way that it would be tasty-- I felt punished for ordering it. I found the decor and the music very "10 years ago." Don't expect to get out of this place with a bill less than $100 per person. The service was excellent. Won't be going back.

    We were in Cleveland for the Bruno Mars concert and picked XO because of the reviews here. We could not be happier with the decision. We had a wonderful meal. My son especially loved the tempura fried sushi roll, and our steaks were delicious. There were a couple of kitchen mix-ups with our meal...nothing horrible at all...and our server Johnny worked very hard to make sure that everything was taken care of. He even went so far as to bring my daughter a bowl of the crab bisque when her steak needed a bit more cooking. And the bisque was delicious. When we return to Cleveland we will definitely return to XO. And we will request Johnny as our server.
