    Food was excellent, the singer was great to listen too. The waitress was slow, she was hard to get to our table. And other tables that sat after us got food before us.

    This was the second time we went to XO . The waitress always seems to be in a hurry. The food is awesome. It gets a little loud as it gets busier. I would go there for any occasion.

    Winter special cocktail Peppermint bark martini a nice way to start off, very yummy. Dewars and soda order had our server/bartender stumped as she had never heard of the drink! Came back to the table to ask what type of soda. Did get the drink correctly but the size of the glass did not warrant the $10 price tag!!! Ordered another evening special, coconut shrimp to start, followed by onion soup for me and chicken noodle for hubby. Ended with the lamb lollipop appetizer which was cooked to perfection and also nice and lean. No room for dessert.

    I won’t be back. Server seemed annoyed that we were seated in her station. Brought us wrong food and overcharged us for a bottle of wine (instead of a glass) and an extra calamari that we never ordered but also never brought out the salad I did order. Not friendly and we felt rushed the entire dinner. Food was decent but nothing special for the price.

    I guess I did not like that a 20% tip was automatically added on to our bill and we were only a party of 5 people. I typically give 20% anyway but I like to get the option to decide how much I give. One of our meals was forgotten about and we had to wait quite a while for it to come out. But the food was good and we really enjoyed the band that was playing and the atmosphere there in general.

    Food is expertly prepared and excellent. We had the best salmon dish and I don’t really like salmon. It was a very busy night and the waitstaff was working hard and it was appreciated. One of my favorite Manchester small restaurants. We can’t wait to return. They also have great vegan and gluten free options.

    I was met at the door when I arrived which was a good thing because there was not a hostess station at the door. I was given a menu as soon as I sat down. The Aperol Spritz I ordered was well made. The hummus appetizer was tasty but the two accompanying items were tasteless and without flavor. They did not add to the appetizer. The blackened tofu was well made but the veggies that came with it were bland. There was not enough balsamic vinegar to boost the flavor. And the guacamole was off putting and did not add to the dish. Maybe the chef added the guac because there was not enough balsamic for the dish? It just did not fit with the veggies. But the wait staff were very attentive and kept checking in with me. The restaurant was almost empty though. Is it struggling to stay open? The bar section was lively and had customers but there were a lot of empty tables in the tiny restaurant. I was here on a Monday night. Maybe parking is an issue? I wanted to try this restaurant because it was new to me but I do not think I will be back.

    Saturday dinner before a performance at the Palace - Greek salad appetizer was well-plated and delicious. Seared salmon and lobster ravioli special was fantastic (if monochromatic). My better half enjoyed with vegan Chick*n wrap. Drinks were yummy and fast: strawberry jalapeño marg (spicy!) and pomegranate martini. Attentive service. We shall certainly return.

    Four of us went for dinner while traveling. Food was very good, large portions...which we shared. The noise level was a bit loud but it was a Friday night. The best part of the experience was the staff. Our waitress was one of the best ever and the manager greeted us, chatted with us and was very engaged. It made for an enjoyable night. Thank you! Only reason for the 4 stars was the noise level and a couple of possibly undercooked scallops of no consequence.

    Tuesday night movie date night so were in the mood for a light tapas-style meal before the show. Started with daily special of coconut shrimp, then on to another daily special salad which was nicely split for sharing. Stuffed dates and lamb lollipops rounded out our meal. All appetizers very delicious and freshly prepared. Look forward to a return visit.

    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.
