A dive instructor we were diving with recommended XO for their scallops, and she was right! They were fantastic. We had a few other appetizers, and they just weren't that good. Go for the scallops, leave the rest of the food behind.

My husband has a gluten allergy and celiac disease and they were able to accommodate to his needs as long as we called an hour ahead. We both enjoyed the Garlic Butter Ribeye about 16oz for $36 each with mashes potatoes and veggies. Wonderful for well needed protein. The restaurant is more set up cafe style and even though they...

We went to XO Bistro upon recommendation from a bartender at the Marriott who gave us a coupon to use there. It was not fine dining, but close to it for island fare anyway. The service was great, the food was delicious, and the cocktails were tasty!

I love this place and go back as often as I can as it offers best food in a friendly atmosphere. My favorite is xo salad with tuna but the ribeye and pork is always great and the staff is very friendly!

We were looking for something a little more upscale than the usual bar/burger place in Red Hook. A large group (8) walked in without reservations and they couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Food was very good and everyone in our group was happy with their choice (not so easy sometimes with a large group). Prices very reasonable. Wonderful... More

This is a very cute place to stop and have a drink and a meal. I was very excited to go here as I received numerous recommendations to go here. The one downfall was we waited 1 hour for our food but not the whole meal, just the appetizer. Once we got it, it was fantastic but it took 1... More

Stopped by with hubby after spending the morning snorkeling at Sapphire Beach. Had one of the best salads I've ever had in my life! A bit pricey for lunch, but it was a great stop. Atmosphere was wonderful, nice & air conditioned.

The Mahi was the best meal I had all week on St. Thomas!! It's kind of small, so you may have to wait for a table, but it's worth it. The food was very good! Staff were all very friendly. Service was a little slow, but I don't think they had enough wait staff working for as busy as it... More

Right across the parking lot from Duffy's Love Shack is XO Bistro. We stopped here for lunch and was pleasantly surprised. A really good wine list as well as fantastic martinis -- grapefruit martini was a favorite. Our bartender Jes was as sweet as good be. Very knowledgeable about the wine and just a really nice person who not only... More

XO Bistro is located in a strip mall that shares the same parking lot as Duffy's Love Shack. I live part-time on St. Thomas and drove past this place so many times...how good can a strip mall joint be, right? Well! Let me tell you! When an island resident told me that this was his favorite place to dine, I... More
