·Dined on January 13, 2018

This wasn't my first time eating at XO's downtown. Previous visits were great but the one this past Saturday was probably my last. I'll first say that the food was great. There were no issues with the food all of my issues were with the service. First off it took 15 minutes for someone on the wait staff to ask us about drinks. That only happened because my wife approached one of them so who knows how long we would have been sitting. Next, they sat a huge dinner party right next to us. There were in excess of 20 people there and they ran out of seats so people were just standing in the aisles. We were constantly bumped and could barely hold any kind of conversation. The Beechwood location is 1000x better. Stay away from this place.

Food was excellent!! My only critique is that when we arrived it took them 15-20 minutes to have our server come to our table to address us and offer us something to drink. However, from that point forward the service was excellent. The Entrees were exceptional! We will definitely recommend this restaurant.

We dined New Years Eve. We hadn’t been sitting 5 minutes when our waiter came over to take our food order. Hadn’t even received drinks yet. I guess he wanted to turn our table quick.
Food very disappointing. My New York Strip was chewy and lacked flavor. Lobster tail was mushy. My husband had rib eye, also chewy. I expect prime meat at these prices to be the best. Unfortunately, this was not the case.

Ordered the special Beef Wellington - was supposed to be medium but was closer to medium rare. (That's actually how I would've requested it, but someone expecting medium would've been unhappy.) Meat wasn't as flavorful as I would've expected. Also, my husband's filet was great but the shrimp add-on was bland/boring.

Also, when I made the reservation, I mentioned the occasion was my husband's birthday (he actually was born on 12/31) but no mention of this was made when we arrived or by our server. Other restaurants have recognized a special event upon arriving at the restaurant but not at XO. I was disappointed.

Overall, I would probably not go back to XO again as there are so many wonderful steak houses in Cleveland.

The place is nice and had some jolly people after the Browns game. The only downside is the bathroom was very old and dirty. Did not reflect the rest of the restaurant. The entire restaurant is a reflection of the place.

My experience was very disappointing. I chose XO because of online ratings. Two out of three steaks were over cooked. After trying to get our waitresses attention, the other diners were half way into main course. Waitress demanded my steak be cut into center to check doneness , steak was beyond medium & l had ordered my cowboy steak medium rare. Manager came over & confirmed it was way past medium and offered a replacement steak. I did not want to eat alone because others would have been done with their meals before my new steak arrived. Brussels sprouts were very hard. I never received my fries even though they were on the bill. Made mention to waitress & she huffed away. I left hungry & very disappointed but left tip anyway. No one cared or attempted to make good.

It seemed super busy so the service could’ve been affected by that but the initial searing experience wasn’t great. I know Z was busy but someone else could’ve handled it in lieu of that. Our waiter was awesome so that made up for it. Solid date.

I thought that the place was really fancy, me and my girlfriend really liked the place. I thought that the price for the steak was pretty up there in price. I say that becuase it just comes with the steak an no sides with it. I think if you pay for a steak like that you shld atleast get two sides with it. But overall really nice place an up class service. You guys did a very nice birthday fish for her which I was so pleased with. Seeing her smile when she was surprised was all that mattered. Thank you xo!

Very pleased with this Cleveland icon. Fantastic steaks and tasty sides. I enjoyed the 10 Oz filet with crab Oscar and ordered truffled lobster Mac and cheese as a side. Appetizers were perfect, fried calamari and duck wings. All around a great dinner. I highly recommend it.

came here for a business dinner. ate at the bar as was just by myself. Steak was superb, however it is a bit pricy even for a steakhouse ( and I am used to NYC and DC steakhouse prices). service was very attentive. wine list was excellent, and there are some values out there to be had. Skews heavily to Napa cabs, which is to be expected. Definitely recommend for the quality of the food and service, especially if you are going to be able to expense it.

I was in Cleveland for a long weekend and someone recommended XO. It was ok, both steaks had to be returned because they were under cooked. Grautin potatoes had a thick layer of cheese that over powered the potatoes. Truffle mac & cheese was flavorless and swimming in cheese sauce. Overall, not impressed. I’d try elsewhere since you have options.

The restaurant has valet, but they are not affiliated with the restaurant. We had trouble getting our car back from valet. They lost our keys and car and shut down before we were done with our meal and did not notify us about our car until we went to retrieve it. It took over an hour to get ahold of the valet company and get this mess all straightened up. This was an extreme hassle. The manager was somewhat helpful, but continued to say that they were not affiliated with valet and not responsible.

5 of us went out for an out of town get together/birthday celebration. Wife`s chicken was dry and my bone in filet was only about 1" thick, which I found very odd, and not cooked per order as I asked for a slightly pink center but, it was cooked all the way through. One of our friends got the scallops and risotto, which he liked and I thought the risotto was good. lobster mac and cheese was barely enough for one person let alone for sharing as a side. Since everything's ala carte, you typically order for the table but, portions were the smallest for a steak house I`ve ever seen. Overall value for price was lacking, in my opinion. Will not be going back as I believe many more, better options, downtown.

My wife and I went for our wedding anniversary and the atmosphere was good. I had the wagyu strip which was a 10oz for $120 and my wife has the bell and Evans chicken. The steak was just okay, and my wife did not actually eat her meal because the chicken was tough and chewy. The crab cake appetizer had good flavor the downside was it was just one small piece.

Without a doubt one of the best meals I can remember eating in a Long time. The bill with tip was $140 for my girlfriend and I , and was worth every penny! She had a 7 oz. filet that she said was cooked to perfection. I chose the surf and turf with 4 oz filet and Prawn. I was a little sceptical ordering a small portion of meat but was pleasantly surprised by how it filled me. We also got a side of garlic mashed, and THE BIGGEST , FRESHEST Asparagus I'VE EVER SEEN !! I must mention the salad as well... I'm not particularly fond of iceberg lettuce but this Wedge Salad was one of thw best salads I've had, it was COVERED in dressing and very different presentation then ibwas familiar with. The server asked what brought us in and I informed him it was my gf birthday and he brought out a beautiful Lava Cake for her.
Well done XO... cya again soon
