Food was excellent, but the wait for food took forever. The waitresses and waiters were great though.
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.
Great beer Bayern’s talapia tacos and had the bartender making my extra dirty martini almost as well as Xtra. Great time for a birthday celebration.
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!
Great food and atmosphere
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.
Food was mediocre. Incorrect beer was served, then once corrected the beer was 9 months expired.
Ultra was excellent! Great service.
First time visit. Food was delicious and generous serving size for the price. Great drink specials at brunch on mimosas and bloody mary drinks. Will definitely go back.
A wonderful treasure in Carytown. The food and beverages are amazing and the staff is outstanding. We love supporting a local gem.
Xtra’s is as good as it gets. Come hungry and thirsty.
Excellent as always. New bartender but still the best Dirty Martini in town. Chloe was great. Are out on balcony.
I really wanted to like the place. Great decor and location. But the service was meh and the food was just ok.
The food was great and the restaurant is beautiful!
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.
Great service, great atmosphere and great food!
Xtra's was a nice find in Cary Town. We were able to sit on the balcony overlooking Cary St. which was quite nice. The drinks were good and the food was fresh and tasty. We got the hummus plate to start, which was very good. We also got some of the pita pizzas which were good but nothing special. All in all, I would say that we would recommend Xtra's if you were looking for something casual and low key.
Great service. Really good sweet potato fries and shrimp n grits. We will be back soon
Xtra’s is a dependable Saturday or Sunday brunch choice. The food is well prepared and the wait staff are friendly and attentive. We especially love sitting out on the covered balcony overlooking Cary street. The second floor view makes for good people watching. Overall, good food and cocktails reasonably priced in a cool location.
Our waitness got one person's order wrong and we asked for two checks but got one. Not sure why she didn't check the food before it was brought to the table. She also didn't know about happy hour. Have always had great service.
Best Tuna Nicoise in a long time!
The place was trendy, affordable, and the food was great!
Wonderful food and good service! Perfect brunch spot.
This was my second visit. I just moved to RVA and Xtras was my first restaurant experience. Taylor was wonderful and courteous. Gives great recommendations and remembered my drink order from my first visit.
Amazing and beautiful space. Staff was wonderful. Will definitely be back again.
We haven't been here in a while, so it was nice to come back to one of our favorite spots! The sangrias were exceptionally delicious today; kudos to the bartender! Everything went well except for one item; my wife's burger had mayo, which she asked to hold. The server immediately made things right by swapping out the bun. She said it was cooked perfectly! She also had the pickle chips, which she loved. I had the white knight pita pizza... excellent! Another fine experience.
Great food albeit Service was slow considering business levels. This was not due to the servers
We added people to our party so had to wait a little, but that wasn’t bad. The service was extremely slow. It took over 5 mins for anyone to great us once seated, the drinks took forever, she took a long time to take our order, and then our food took 45ish mins to come ( we ordered a crab cake Benny, crab cake app, soup, and wings). This should not have taken that long. The crab cakes were meaty, but they were a little burnt and the cheese grits weren’t the best. The crab cake appetizer looked like they took a piece of American cheese and melted it on there.
Was ok nothing special but good
Good food and service, reasonable prices for the meal.
Great food, great service. Sean was great. One of my favorite spots in Cary Town for brunch.
Back to one of our favorites! Brunch this time. My wife had the Belgian Waffle; she said it was excellent! I had the Biscuits and Gravy... wonderful taste! They were busy (obviously), but service overall was a good pace; not too fast or slow. Xtra welcomed us back warmly! You really can't lose coming here!
Arriving Richmond by train in Richmond for the day, we ate a late breakfast at Xtra’s Cafe prior to visiting the nearby museums that are an easy walk from the cafe. Ravi and other staff were delightful and attentive to us and our special needs adult son. The steak and egg breakfast special was delicious as were the roasted potatoes and cheddar grits. Our son thoroughly enjoyed the Belgium waffles and side of bacon. It was the perfect start to a fun day of eating and touring. We will return to the vibrant Carey Street district.
Xtra's is an everyday dining spot. Nothing really fancy, just a warm burger and a cold beer. If you are grabbing dinner on say, a Wednesday, this would be the spot. I do wish their fries were better. When I treat myself to french fries, I like hand-cut fries that have a pronounced potato taste (a la Russet). On the upside, they did cook my hamburger EXACTLY the way I eat them, well-done, with no snobby judgement. I like my red meat med-rare, but my burgers well done.
Variety of menu, reasonably priced, prompt service.
Amazing. As always. Will continue to return frequently.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere! Would defintely eat here again.
The food was good. The interior is nicely set up, but I don’t know why on a Wednesday night it was empty. It was just us. It’s a nice place with decent food and good service. 😎
The tempura fried mushroom appetizer with Alabama sauce was great! Two of us made that a meal and as always the best Dirty martini in town!
This is a lovely , quiet restaurant in Carytown with ample public parking on the same block as the restaurant. The food is good with tasty entrees, delicious fresh salads, and a nice selection of appetizers. Xtras offers a nice happy hour. And, my experience has been positive with service, noise level, and the food.
I made a reservation for a big group to go to Xtras for brunch because it's convenient in Carytown and has a nice patio overlooking the street. The food is underwhelming and I don't know why I've given them two chances on their biscuits now, but they are dry and crumbly. The pancakes and waffles are good, but a friend had a salad with onion peel in it and cheese when she's lactose intolerant and expressly asked for it to be left out. The manager (via the waitress) did reduce the price of her meal, but never came to the table themselves. Regarding the reservation, I tried to call the day before to confirm and the number rang once before beeping and not saying anything. There were no issues with the reservation when we got to the restaurant and a table was already reserved with water glasses ready, which was appreciated. The service overall was very good -- I only wish the same could be said for the food.
