It was my first time to XO. I was looking for a new experience for my husband's birthday. We love great food - my husband is mostly a vegan and I enjoy it all! I initially previewed the menu online and it seemed to offer a variety of delicious and creative options for both of us! We were definitely not disappointed! From the whipped feta Tapas to the rich and tasty desserts, including the excellent after dinner coffee, it was a meal to remember and one we'd like to repeat again very soon!

A truly perfect pic for celebrating our anniversary. The server, who's name I don't recall, was very knowledgeable and pleasant. The dishes we picked for our meal were well prepared and presented.

Great night out with the family. Dinner at XO prior to an event at the SNHU Arena.

In Manchester for a show at the arena, and was on a somewhat tight schedule. Recommended by a family member to eat dinner at XO's. Stayed at the Raddison and the reviews for the restaurants there were not great. Calamari was the best. The hot pepper relish mixed in put it over the top. My wife had the escargot, it was great. We ordered small because of time restraint. Cocktails were good also. Everything seemed a little pricey, but you get what you paid for. You want good, you pay for good. You want ok, go to mcdonalds.

Excellent food and service! Steven our waiter provided helpful friendly service with great advice. The menu is varied with regular and smaller size dishes. The sesame tuna was to perfection with fresh vegetables and coconut cuscus . Service is prompt but not rushed. Wish I had room for desert. I'll be back often!

We LOVED the food at XO on Elm. Beautiful restaurant, great drinks and great service. Our only issue was that the room was too loud between the music and the many diners talking.

Food was phenomenal! A little pricey though - especially the desserts- the price was way out of wack. I would definitely go back, very different food!! Waiter was awesome!!

The food was good. Did not know that hey charges for refills on Coke until after we got the bill. The Mojhitos we ordered were not very good. The server made them and not the bar tender. My wife sent hers back because it tasted bad.
Dinners were good and the portions were a good size.

Food was amazing, but our waitress was horrendous! We had a party of 4, it took our waitress 15 minutes to come to the table to ask us if we wanted drinks, we now were running short on time, and had a concert to go to in an hour, so since we had plenty of time to look over the menu waiting for her to make an appearance, we gave her our dinner orders as well. She didn't deliver the food, NEVER checked back with us after the food was delivered, we had to go search for her after we were done eating to get another round of drinks and another tapas dish. I understand it was a concert nite, but to never come back to the table for 40 minutes is CRAZY! We will definitely go back, but will make sure the waitress from Ireland is not our waitress again!

Our reservation was at 6:15, the waiter was fabulous, but my chicken was dry/overcooked. Both the mens & ladies rooms were filthy, trash overflowing & paper towels all over the floor fairly early on a Saturday night.

Food was good... only complaint is that it took over an hour to get our meals after we ordered.

Wonderful food, pretty fair prices, great waitstaff and and easy to find location right in downtown Manchester. We stopped in before a concert at the SNHU Arena since we knew we could make a reservation. Food was cooked to perfection and, most importantly, the waitstaff took our party's food allergy seriously.
