Quiero felicitar al equipo de trabajo de Xixon por su excelente atención. Una reseña especial para Oscar quien siempre nos atiende excelente. Sin duda repetiré ya que es uno de los mejores, por no decir el mejor restaurante de comida española en Miami.

Asked for a paella in advance. The took the order by phone and attached it to our reservation. When we arrived they told me they do not take orders in advance...they offered free dessert ...was not enough at least for me...would prefer a real apology...

I'd been here once before with my foodie group. We shared food and brought our own wine. It was a fun night. We thought we'd give it a try on our anniversary.
In spite of the disorganized menu, the front page of which details wine by the glass by Bodegas, not by type of wine, we ordered a Pinot Noir and a suggested beer. My wine had been sitting around for a couple of days. It would've made a good cooking wine, but not drinking-- disappointment#1. The wine glass had droplets of water and was passed on to me by hand. #2 Odd, but ok. Another wine was ordered this time a Tempranilla as this was a Spanish restaurant and requested that a new bottle be opened. Some wine was poured somewhere in the bar and again handed to me to try & approve. The bottle was not opened at my table nor a taste poured on site. This restaurant boasts a large wine background and a room filled with large wine barrels - quite nice! Seems staff is not well trained as to types of wines, protocols, etc - they can overcome that aspect. Although the waitress seemed sad, she did try her best within her language limitations.
However, the menu was a mish-mosh of items with unclear titles. Choices were made to try something new - mostly tapas on menu - but, half a piece of bread with marmalade and a whole chorizo on a skewer is not reflective of a tapa. Entrees are limited - mostly a tapas place. Did I mention that?
No I will not return to this restaurant, nor will I recommend it. When you limit your clientele to one group, you lose out on a diverse market and hence on much needed funds to train your staff, which will, in the long run, increase your revenues.

Xixon has been our go to place for Spanish food since we came upon it over 10 years ago. We've seen it grow from a simple tiny little restaurant to its new location where they have created a a large, vibrant space with excellent food, consistent quality and friendly staff. Ingredients are all top of the line, is he real thing, a little piece of Spain in Miami.

Although I had made reservations way in advance of our dining date, we still had to wait almost 30-minutes in order to be seated. We had to send back the main course of our food because of the amount of fat on the steak. We then asked for one of their yellow rices for three (shrimp and cod) and it was just okay. Nothing to write home about. Very disappointed this time around. The first time was incredible!

I went for lunch with 89 year old dad who is Basque and is a fan of Spanish food (not Cuban food but authentic Spanish ) we had the seafood paella and it was perfect. Loaded with shellfish and very tasty rice. The tapas are terrific too.
Also the young woman that served us was very professional and sweet.

We love having dinner at our neighborhood gem Xixon! We always experience amazing food and service and this past visit was no different. We were super happy Ari worked on Saturday night since she is exceptional. We also took advantage of the Groupon they offered and it was a great deal. Their paella is amazing and we always order a lot of different tapas. Some of our favorites are the bacon wrapped dates, croquetas, calamari and tablas with manchego, chorizo and jamon Serrano. Their wine selection is also wonderful and extensive.

Food well seasoned. Tapas were superb. Paella a little on the salty side. Our server (from Andulucia) was wonderful! She provided clear and concise information about what was being served. Our waitress however, was a little distracted; she never noticed that the oil and vinegar, S/P for the freshly-baked baguette were never provided. Great place for Tapas!
