Diner Reviews
  • "My husband and I decided to come to Xtra's after I had heard great reviews from two good friends. I ordered the steak as it was recommended by one of my girlfriends. It was superb! The flavor was great and it was cooked exactly how I wanted it! The vegetables and potato that came with it were delicious as well. My husband had a yummy vegetable soup with just enough spice. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit!"

  • "Was a beautiful night and although there was traffic noise - didn't bother us at all - part of the ambiance. The waitress was really good - there when we needed her to be and not hovering. Food - crab cakes - were delicious. Definitely will be back."

  • "Xtras' Cafe is a low key but yummy place to dine. They have GF and V options and fun creative mixed drinks. Sit outside and people watch Cary St below."

  • "Xtra's provides great quality food consistently. The range of food on their menu initially made me wonder, but of the Mexican style, Italian style, and American dishes I've tried, all have been great. Service is prompt and servers are attentive, even during times when the restaurant is extremely busy (ex: VCU graduation weekend)."

  • "I was not impressed with the quality of the food. I ordered the avacado wrap, it did not have a any goat cheese as listed. My husbands meal consisted of cold soggy sweet potatoe fries and a mediocre sandwich . I did enjoy the atmosphere and the outdoor dining."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The restaurant isn't terribly big, but they easily accommodated my larger group. The service was good, the food was good, and the drinks were good. They have, what I consider to be, a variety of food and drinks. There is something for everyone here, even kids."

  • "Visited with three of us on a quiet Sunday evening. The food and service were all excellent. Great prices for the quality food. Will definitely go back!"

  • "The food was great, the service was great but it was miserably hot inside and lacking a little in intimacy. I can't overstate how muggy and hot it was there it really ruined the date. I said something to the waitress and she did turn down the air but by the time the temperature had lowered itself we were close to being finished."

  • "I visited Xtra's Café with my family for Mother's Day. The restaurant is very nicely decorated, and has a great atmosphere. The restaurant is very inviting- and the option of outdoor dining is awesome. The wait staff is very friendly and helpful. The food service was slow due to the amount of people there for Mother's Day, but I still believe that it was a nice pick for the occasion. I ordered two scrambled eggs with cheddar cheese and chorizo which came with wheat toast and potatoes. The amount of eggs could be increased (maybe three instead of two), but otherwise the chorizo, potatoes, and toast were delicious. I would definitely return on a less crowded day."

  • "Took my 16 year old daughter there for her birthday. She had a flat bread and salad and I an omlet. Both meals were excellent and server was delightful. My only complaint was that it took a while for a server to get to us after we were seated."

  • "A last minute reservation for us, but what an excellent choice. Ordered Humus appetizer And a cheese plate as well as an intended to share entree. Had to turn off the entree, the appetizers were huge. Wine was superb. People watching plentiful. They have an outdoor dining area overlooking Cary Street. This is a must experience from the many choices in Carytown."

  • "I have to admit it was a little disappointing, everything I was looking forward to is no longer on the menu. When we needed our waitress she wasn't around and when we didn't need her she was always there."

  • "My wife and I dined at Xtra's on 02/15 and could not have been more pleases. The food and service were fantastic and the decor of the restaurant is very enjoyable. Eclectic menu and a strong wine list make this a must see in Carrytown. I would highly recommend Xtra's for anyone who is tired of the many chain reataurants in Richmond."

  • "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."

  • "The place has nice ambience especially given the very reasonable prices. Food is average."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "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."

  • "Menu has good choices. Our party of 4 was very satisfied with all our dishes. Will definitely be back."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"
    Dined on 8/19/2013
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/17/2013
  • "Great food, nice location, appropriate for dinner meeting, outside dining available. What more could you ask for?"

  • "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."
