Delicious without breaking the bank!

Six of us went to XO for dinner last night. We started at the bar for happy hour.

Not a lot of food choices. Maybe people come here more to drink. Ordered one of the 3 sandwiches, and they were out of prime rib. Can't say as we'd go back.

We made reservations for 7:30 on a Tuesday (highly recommend) the place was hopping - it's smallish with a larger bar area - the Brie and shrimp scargo were really good , we then had large salads - Thai chicken and southwest chicken salad and both were very tasty. Our server was super attentive and polite. The location is in... More

We didn't have a reservation, but they got us in. Many locals recommended this to us and we were not disappointed. We had the Ahi Tuni and the Mahi. Both were fabulous. It is not very big, but has a great atmosphere.

Right after getting off the ferry we stopped to quench our thirst. Nice bar scene with friendly bar maids. The owner knows the business! All three bar tenders were very good and their looks didn't hurt either.

Food was very good, nice presentation. Very deceptive that this bistro is in the RedHook Plaza it's a nothing flashing strip plaza. It appears that most patrons were locals. The go to bar / bistro. There is something to be said for that! Pretty small so I would suggest early dinner 4:30-5 or make a reservation. As it filled up... More

We used to like to go to XO more but the bartenders arent as fast at service as they used to be . I would not tolerate that in my business. At least the food is still good though, especially Tuesdays homemade stuff. My husband likes the meatloaf.

We had a great brunch in this bar/restaurant. The shrimp and grits were the best I've ever had. But no decaff coffee!

Not generally a brie guy but theirs was off the charts. My wife and I will remember that course for the next 10 months. We were sitting at the bar and did not stay for dinner because all of a sudden a bunch of blazing drunk dudes rolled in who were apparently friends with the staff. We did not how... More

My fiance and I visited this restaurant for a casual Friday night dinner. The location is a bit odd, and the setup inside as well, but don't let that fool you, because the food is excellent. I ate the crab-topped mahi, the girlfriend ate the pasta with scallops, mussels and shrimp. We also had this amazing steak appetizer where the... More
