    We had a good time, and I’ve been here before and loved it unfortunately ended up getting really sick for the rest of the night. I’m not sure it was the food or the wine (I had the steak and cheese and Riesling). Not sure what happened but just be careful!

    After half and hour we had to ask for our app. No one brought it out and our dinner had been ready as well. Lamb lollipops were burnt and one was mostly gristle. Stuffed dates were good, as was the BBQ short rib. French onion soup was horrid. It had no flavor to it all all. Big disappointment

    It was a very good value for a Friday night dinner. Staff was stretched kind of thin (like most places these days) but they were extraordinarily pleasant. Food was good but not exceptional. I would go back and try some other menu choices, as it was a very good value for a downtown restaurant.

    Sadly on our “not to return list”. Service was mediocre… at times 4-5 people behind the bar yet our drinks sat empty for almost 10 minutes. Noticed they used clear plastic cups for water at the main tables! Old fashion wasn’t stirred or mixed. It was straight pour and place in front of customer. Food was poorly timed… our appetizer came out at the same time as the meal, only warm and no one checked on us until we were about close to finishing.

    We missed the tapas and the menu just seemed different. Over all the service was great, it just wasn’t the XO menu that we remembered. But the food we did have, everyone loved.

    We ate here about 5 years ago and it was much nicer. Music was a local radio station and it was loud. Who wants to hear car ads while dining? Food was okay but not as good as before and it was expensive given ambiance and server level of skill. She was friendly, just not knowledgeable. Also the general cleanliness of the furnishings was poor.

    XO... Hell no! Spend your hard earned money somewhere else. The food was abysmal. Steak was cooked well done, no flavor. Other dishes were luke warm and soggy. Cocktails were watered down. This restaurant's ONLY saving grace, the hard-working wait staff. Offered me a free meal and a $25 voucher due to poor entree. Sorry to say, never going back!

    Service was terrible. We Had a reservation which clearly made no difference. Entrees were cold when they finally came and scallops in paella tasted like ammonia and couldn’t be eaten. The only positive note was that the fried calamari appetizer which took 45 minutes to come out was tasty

    We get there, the restaurant was freezing cold. Ordered a couple of drinks and an appetizer. Appetizer was good, the drinks were not. Kind of shocked to see water being served in solo cups in what’s supposed to be a “nice” restaurant. Both meals were like a 7 out of 10. And the deserts weren’t good at all. We used to frequent XO fairly often. Can’t see us going back. Disappointing more than anything. It is what it is.

    Nice dinner with my family on Christmas eve. Was somewhat busy and we sat in the rear section of the bar. Server seemed a bit harried, but overall a good experience as the food was really good, from apps to specials. Had meatballs (app), Haddock special, scallop special, pasta bolognese and paella, all of which were very good. Would recommend trying.
