The food and service is really good at the XO bistro. I had the crab topped mahi mahi and it was excellent. Best meal so far of our trip.

Each week we go to XO and each time we are "wow'ed. The specials are outstanding, the service wonderful and the staff creates a fun atmosphere. This week was Crab and Cream Cheese Enchiladas, the red sauce that was on it was to die for. This is one of the best restaurants on the island and relatively speaking not expensive.... More

We really enjoyed our evening at this local spot. The food was very good. We shared the shrimp escargot, flatbread pizza, and a chopped salad. Good wine selection. Nice gathering of younger people and the music was fun. Would highly recommend.

Let me just say that what this place lacks in scenic view, it makes up for in value, service, and food. We decided to try XO on a whim for lunch, as we were staying near Red Hook. Ultimately, this ended up also being the last place we ate lunch before we left for the airport. I ordered the Lasagna... More

my husband and I went for lunch and had great service and delicious sandwiches. We figured we will definitly return for dinner. We went back for dinner to find that it is almost a 360 in terms of quality and service. The girls behind the bar were very friendly and attractive but once they had a few patrons completely flaked... More

Just came back from a horrid experience. Place was empty. Bartender seemed nice enough got a drink, ordered food, got some anemic bread (I think it was bread it was so thinly sliced) then.....forgotten. Asked if perhaps there was a problem, she immediately said no. Food finally came and my shrimp and linguini was a butter bowl and awful. Scallops... More
