Food was excellent. Drinks good but a little pricey.
Nice place, great breakfast food, except for the gf pancakes (no flavor). Smallish portions. No water refills, but clearly short-staffed.
Food was not good was given rice instead of Asian vegetables tuna was dry
Great people, big drinks, kid friendly
Food was delicious. The menu selections were varied and offered many choices for all the different tastes in our group.
The service was somewhat slow and not smooth. It seemed as though the staff had not been trained in working with customers. No one to greet guests and seat us. Our waitress chewed gum through the evening. We watched another waitress sucking on her hair as she moved through the dining room. The quality of the food (high) was disconnected from the service.
Food and service were good. A bit pricy for what you get, though. Lamb shank and steak pretty good, want to try bowls next time. Caught XO on slow night and 2000s popular hip hop music was playing.
This place was amazing. Food was great, staff was so kind!
The food was great but the drinks were terrible and nothing like their description. The service was okay but not great and it was pretty loud. Vegan chicken wrap was phenomenal though as were the real chicken and steak tacos!
Took my mother out for her birthday and we had a wonderful meal! The staff there is super nice!!
Overall good. Though my chicken was very over cooked. But the other meals looked good. Service was excellent.
We love XO! The staff is really friendly, it has a really nice ambience (live music!), and the food is delicious! Not your average menu, with some South American inspired dishes, but definitely still comfort food - you can’t go wrong. Try something new!
We sat at the bar, but there’s also a nice big modern dining room and some tables outside. Beware - Elm Street can be pretty loud if you opt for the sidewalk seating.
We got empanadas to start. The appetizer portions are definitely small, (it was actually only 1 empanada) but I actually liked how it didn’t spoil my appetite! My boyfriend got the Peruvian lomo saltado (steak with peppers, onions, tomato, rice, and fries) and I got the mushroom risotto with filet medallions. Both dishes were perfect! Flavorful, juicy, great texture. Just great food. We went back again last night and also tried the taquitos appetizer and a scallops entree, which I’d definitely recommend!
Honestly just so so
Everything was wonderful and delish! 1 hick up with service the bartender was speaking to probably a manager very close to us and she was giving her notice....shop talk shouldn't be in ears reach of your guests....
Good food and atmosphere. Server was attentive. Menu was diverse.
It’s been years since dining here, I had high hopes. We sat at the bar, the service was literally non existent. It took FOREVER to place app order and took FOREVER to get it then it took FOREVER to place dinner orders. I was asked how I wanted my Risotto cooked and that was a sign … I was like properly, I want it cooked properly. Dinner finally arrived, and mine was fine, my husband steak was literally mooing - he ordered it med. the girl actually asked how everything was and we were like this steak is unacceptably undercooked. She took it off the bill and NEVER offers to have it cooked to satisfaction. It really was a sucky experience from start to finish.
Food was OK and the wine excellent but XO has really gone down over the last year, it was once a nice pretty high scale place in downtown but lately it has become a bit rundown and shabby. Just walking into the little lobby you'll notice it's dirty.
Wife and I had a great meal (interesting appetizers, salmon special was fab) and the service was very attentive and friendly. Music was in the other room and our table area was quiet (just what we needed that night). First time at XO and we enjoyed it a lot!
The staff was extremely friendly. The steak and cheese was superb!
Location was great and the ambience was really nice also. Loved the number of glutten free options. Service was a little slow towards the end of the evening, but overall it was a nice dinner.
Great server, very attentive and professional. We tried a couple appetizers, main courses and of course drinks and dessert. The empanadas were delish and the chili glazed salmon was very tasty and prepared as requested.
Our server was great until the end of our meal. She was so concerned about getting us out the door that she was grabbing our food plates and offering the check while we were literally still eating our meal. (which took a very long time to arrive) I don't know if we had reached our "Covid Time Limit" of being in the restaurant or what but she was hell bent on getting us out. There were several other open tables in the dining room so it's not like they couldn't have sat the next party somewhere else.
Great place for an intimate dinner. Cocktails are incredible- options for everyone! They also have a very inclusive menu with gluten free, and/or vegan options. Specifically the vegan Paella is out of this world. So much flavor and so good for you! Will definitely be coming back.
The food is great and the portions are huge on the entrees. I asked the waiter and was told the entrees wer not big but they came and no way the two of us could even finish one entree let alone the two we ordered.
Delicious menu - something for everyone, with an emphasis on seafood and Mediterranean options. Friendly, prompt but unobtrusive service. Creative cocktail menu. Outdoor seating option right on Elm Street. Casual atmosphere but with a fancy feel.
We went on a Weds night where there was only us and one other couple. We go during the week and at less busy hours so to feeling safer. First time here and would go back. Prices our a little pricey but bartender/waitress was very nice and food was good. Nice place. Have a band on weekends but not ready for a crowd. Outdoor seating also.
Great food and great service
Amazing vegan selection and drinks! It was a wonderful night filled with live music and great cocktails!
Great food and service. Enjoyed live music and was an excellent evening for a date night.
Birthday party! Food was amazing!
Great food and funny bartenders.
Great drinks but the food was ok. The lobster bisque was watery, not creamy at all and we didn’t find any lobster meat in it whatsoever. The ceviche was not technically ceviche.....it was just shrimp and about one whole raw red onions which made it inedible. We told the waitress but she didn’t have any resolution for us. The steak was good and the creme brûlée was outstanding. The star of the night were the espresso martinis and the very sweet waitress. The bill was over $200.00 for 2 people although we got drinks, appetizers, entrees and desert so we knew it would be pretty high.
Not sure if I would try again. Maybe just for drinks!
Loved everything about this restaurant! Starting from the food, the service and the atmosphere. I will definitely be coming back for more.
Dinner was very good and festive for Valentines Day
Amber is so personable! She aims to please every customer. Very friendly and cares about each person she waits on. She keeps us coming back!
Promptly seated. Good prime rib and good drinks, very good sangria.
Never made it in the over booked so we couldn’t get in
Love the variety of the menu. The “specials” the Bowls and vegan choices.
Of course my fav, was the Dirty Martini.
I was really looking forward to try somewhere new. When I got there the asked if we wanted that high top in the bar area (where there was one other couple) or the dining room (where there were several parties). We assumed there would be better service in the bar area. Little did we know that the people at the bar were going to be extremely loud.
Next was the server. She seemed ok at first, but then as she visited the people at the bar we became less of a priority. She also did not seem to know the menu. We had to wait with empty drinks. I’m not sure if we weren’t on the radar because we are young guys, but I was clearly planning on spending good money all dressed to the nines.
When we ordered dessert, my partner’s crepe brûlée was a soup. When he mentioned it to the server, she seemed to not understand what he was saying. But after explaining it to her, she did put in for a new one, which was much better.
Then came the check. She ran my card and dropped off the receipt, without a pen to sign it. She proceeded to go back to her conversation at the bar, and finally we ended up having to be loud to get some attention.
The food was good, but for the amount I paid for it, I would expect exceptional service as well.
New Years Eve
We have now been here twice and it is always a great experience the staff is amazing and I think the manager is the one who is always going up to tables checking in and they have some really good specials every time we go!! My boyfriend is hooked on their French onion soup, such a great spot!
