To start, we have eaten at Xico more than a dozen times and it has become one of our absolute favorite restaurants, so much so that we invited 4 friends to join us. We are also usually very easy going restaurant patrons and even if things go a bit sideways we laugh it off and enjoy the evening regardless. But not last night. Twenty minutes after ordering drinks we were asked to remind our server what drinks we had ordered, and then waited another 20 minutes before we got them. Before the drinks ever arrived a server started bringing entrees, even though our appetizers had not showed up yet either. The manager was very apologetic throughout but it didn't seem to improve anything, although she graciously did not charge us for our drinks. As a final straw, usually the food at Xico is spectacular but a few in our party ordered the Vegetable Empanadas which tasted only of fried dough without any flavor from the filling. I guess all restaurants can suffer from inconsistencies at times, very sorry to see Xico go downhill.
