Excellent food: amazing fresh baguette with balsamic, perfect lamb lollipops, feta mashed potatoes, and excellent scallops. The food was wonderful. Our waitress was knowledgeable and helpful when we were deciding between 2-3 entrees. We went with her suggestions. I am so glad that we did! I can't remember her name and wish I could. We were there Wednesday 2/18 about... More

I had the mahi mahi. The grilled fish was very fresh but it had a slight taste of lighter fluid -as if the grill needed a boost during cooking and it didn't completely burn off. The kitchen needs to watch this because the fish otherwise would have been outstanding. My wife had a pizza and she enjoyed it. We had... More

A great spot to get away from it all. Air conditioned comfort, impeccable service and excellent selection of top shelf liquors and wines. Appetizers are awesome and the daily specials are all about comfort food - you're bound to find one of your favorite classics on the menu at a reasonable price. Great mix of visitors and locals - a... More

We ate for the first time and enjoyed our dinner very much. I had the lamb chop appetizer, large enough for a meal and delicious, my husband had a flat bread pizza and we shared a caprese salad, all were very good. Our server was very good and explained the menu to us and quite attentive, we will be returning... More

Stayed in Red Hook area for 12 days. Had dinner at XO twice. Food and service was excellent. Really a great place to eat. Not very big so either go early or make a reservation. You won't be disappointed.

After eating here last year, we were looking forward to trying it again. Called one day, too late to get a reservation, and vowed to try again. However, after calling, leaving our name, time of preferred reservation, date, and telephone number, we were turned away with excuses that they couldn't make a business telephone call from the phone number listed,...

We had a birthday dinner here and the food, drinks, and service were phenomenal! Even though we had a party of 12, the waitress was incredibly attentive and professional. I ordered the baked brie appetizer, and I have to say, it is one of the BEST I've ever eaten. The raspberry preserves and Granny Smith apple slices really put this... More

This is a cool little restaurant in Red Hook across from duffy’s. Don't be fooled by the strip mall: two story ceiling, dark wood decorations, not too many tables spread around a tall dark bar bartended by beautiful women in black dresses. We started looking around for James Bond, but he didn’t show up. Instead, the shrimp pasta and mahi... More

To us, xo bistro is a bar that serves food. Nothing fancy. Located in a strip mall with very limited parking. No view or special ambiance. We enjoyed a few beers and the flatbread pizzas, which were very good. Our server was very knowledgable about the menu, and willing to speak with the kitchen about special requests. Good place for...
