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.
Had a couple of friends accompany us this time. Service was polite as usual, but they were much more crowded than what we've seen, so the food was a little slower coming out. But everything was delicious! Even with the busier crown, we were able to carry on a conversation without shouting.
Laid back atmosphere with fantastic menu - definitely 5 star
One of our friends said the fish tacos were the best she ever had. Great place for a before the cabaret meal!
Food was absolutely amazing! The owner, Xtra, actually waited on us and was so friendly. Very classy and hip restaurant perfect for any occasion.
Always a winning meal. Have introduced to several friends. Fernando was a great server. Thankyou once again!
We caught up with friends here over a leisurely meal. It was a Thursday night between Christmas and New Years and not crowded at all. This was good for me because it was quieter, and easier to hear our conversation. The food was good and very affordable, including the wine. Coming from northern Virginia this was a nice treat, to pay a little less and still get good food. I'd go back again.
Always the best Dirty Martini and discovered their new Bailey’s Mousse Parfait. Best dessert by far! Yum!
Have been to other eateries lately due to being out of town, but we always love coming back to "our spot"! Excellent service, consistent quality dishes, great ambiance.
Nice atmosphere. The restaurant is clean and the staff is pole.
The bartender was wonderful and very accommodating.
Friends from NYC loved Xtras now that says something! Great food. Particularly enjoyed the salmon eggs Benedict
