I really hope our experience was a total fluke. I cannot remember the last time I had an experience that was this bad. The food was so bad it was embarrassing. Our server kept telling us the kitchen was having an off day and I hope that’s true. Our experience was all poor however, we will not be back to find out.

Unique restaurant, a bit off the path as it is located on the second floor. Have been there several times, always have had good food and service, reasonable price for the portion served, and nice employees.

We loved this restaurant. Out server was outstanding. She was patient, helpful, genuine! I'm afraid we were the noisy table in the restaurant, but we were tucked in the corner. I hope we didn't bother others. The food was great. The sangria was amazing!

Wonderful new dishes on a new menu and always the best extra dirty martini in town! Need a few more veggie items and bring back the White Knight or something like it. Vegan Calamari fantastic.

I really love this place but am not a fan of the new menu at all! I was disappointed not be able to order the salmon and risotto dish I have always loved. Fewer choices were surprising, but other than that Nathan and the staff were so welcoming!

It was a great place to spend a little time during the Watermelon Festival! The seared tuna small plate was really excellent, and the salads we ordered were delicious. The staff was all super friendly, despite it being an extra (no pun intended) busy day for them.

Inattentive server. Said she didn't bring us anymore water because she didn't want to interrupt our conversation. Guest asked for an ingredient to be omitted but it was right on the top.

Hostess/manager was not very pleasant. Despite the place being nearly empty from the time we arrived until we left, she did not want to give us a decent table. She said every table for 4 was reserved. If this was the case, all must have canceled. My dining partner required additional space and no one seemed to care.
We will probably not be returning.

Our waitress, Gena, served our family of 18. She was attentive and patient with all the demands of that many people

The menu offers such a variety of options which made everyone happy from age 11 to 75! Our meals ranged from pizza to burgers to sandwiches to tilapia stuffed with crab. Everyone’s meal was great. We will be back!

We have enjoyed coming to Xtras for years and look forward to brunch on Sundays. This past visit, the server did not come to our table for at least 10 minutes after we were seated. I mentioned this to the host who sat us and it still took her several minutes to come. There were other servers who passed by our table, and no one acknowledged us. The restaurant was not very busy at the time we were there. It was a disappointment and I will probably not return for a special occasion. Possibly, a casual dinner but we will now have a new "go-to" for special brunch.

Noise level was definitely due to our party, so that's the only ready why I gave it a "Moderate" response. We had a blast and our server was outstanding. The food was delicious and everyone had a great time. Thank you all so much!

Service was terrible. Had to ask the host to send a server to our table after sitting for ten minutes without anyone acknowledging us. Three people in our party, after a very long wait our food finally came out. One person ordered crab cake eggs benedict, and the meal was delivered without the crab cakes. Crab cakes finally arrived when everyone else at the table had finished their meals. The crab cakes were very fishy tasting. Manager never even apologized or acknowledged the mistake or poor service. One person at the table ordered french toast and commented that Ihop makes better french toast. Definitely won't be going back.

Visiting Richmond as a family. We tried the poutine and found it to be indistinguishable from frozen fries covered with gravy from a jar. One of us could not finish the shrimp and grits. Everything was overly salty. Don’t waste your time and money.

This is the second time we were here as we were impressed by the great service and food the first time, so we invited another couple to join us on this round. We were greeted warmly and cheerfully, and quickly seated at a table where we could have a quiet conversation. Great atmosphere. Ellen, our server was just superb, warm, attentive, listened well and gave good advice. Another superb, engaged staff member in round two. Highly recommend. Gem of restaurant that I don't think enough people know about in the crowded, sometimes a bit hectic Cary street locale. Perfect Oasis.

We checked out Xtra's for brunch as we like to try new places and brunch usually offers a variety of food in a more relaxed atmosphere. Xtra's is located on the second floor and the seating is ample and not crowded. It also has an outside balcony for when the weather is nice. The menu offered quite a few brunch items, as well as more for lunch. Brunch can sometimes define a restaurant's style of food they serve, some being simple and others being eclectic. Xtra's falls in between where they offer the standard items with their special additions, as well as more unique cuisine which make selecting worth a careful look. All items on the menu sounded good, choosing was the hard part. The entrees we selected were ample in size and quite tasty. Their prices were most reasonable and the service was above average.

Xtra's Cafe has a great vibe and artsy atmosphere. We had tasty appetizers and the happy hour was awesome. Our entrees were totally over salted and not one person in our party finished their dish. I would not get another entree when we return unless the salt is eliminated. Way too much!

We Love Xtras. It has become our “go to” restaurant for quiet lunches or larger celebrations. The food is delicious, their signature cocktails are amazing. The coconut mojito can change your day. The service is impeccable. Highly recommend a Carytown Gem.

Had dinner here with my family as we all converged on RVA to visit my son. Great location in CaryTown. Nice, upbeat atmosphere, with pleasant decor. Food was good, though not outstanding. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. Felt that prices were fair. Would come back.
