They have a great variety of what I would consider high end food for the red hook area at a good price. The place has a nice vibe and if Nate is cooking, he comes up with some great stuff! I had a 6oz spacey tuna sushi mound (only way to describe it) with wafer crackers to scoop the tuna... More

We heard great things about this restaurant from more than one person while we were vacationing on the island including a group of 8 women that were sitting around the pool at Frenchman's Reef. We found it in a strip mall on the East side of the island, but were pleasantly surprised by the decor once inside. It is not... More

This small hideaway is a local favorite hidden away in the Red Hook strip mall. Plenty of options for drinks and some unique dishes have people coming back for more. Prices are higher than my comfort, but the people are very friendly and would have to recommend giving it a try.

One would agree that it gets harder to impress as we get more familiar with everything. Multiple visits to XO and we still leave talking about it. The specials are outstanding, the NY Strip could be the best steak on the island especially priced at $31. My husband loves the Pork Ribeye off the menu with the maple glaze. Each... More

My wife and I both agree that our meals were sooooo good. The people sitting next to us also had some excellent smelling and looking food. The meals were prepared so nicely. The prices were higher than we were anticipating. We ended up using part of our taxi money. :O The atmosphere feels wrong though for such great food. They... More

XO was recommended by our Concierge at the Ritz. She was spot on. The atmosphere is lively and fun- great music, TVs, good energy. Bree was our SPECTACULAR server! It was busy and she seemed to be running the bar and well but you didn't see her sweat it for a nano-second. Great wine list, lots of menu items and... More
