Xcellent Xiomara

Upscale Latin food. Highlights: tamal, cubano chicken & chocolate souffle. Nice wine by glass choices. Beautiful upstairs with nooks & private dining room. Service top notch. Pros- gaspacho, poblano risotto, sorbets, staff. Cons- room bit warm sometimes.

Perfect place. Great mixed drinks, service, atmosphere, and parking. Not noisy. Priced right. Cuban fusion.

I had the best halibut I've ever experienced in a restaurant. Simply sauteed and served over tomato risotto with a tomato and avocado salad and a sweet and spicy sauce this dish was sublime. Good wine list and great mojitos too. There really is a Xiomara and she keeps a close watch over her namesake restaurant.

Nice, white table clothed restaurant. Not too big. Nice bar, great food. Staff was attentive and friendly. The halibut was nicely done. Great presentation. Drinks were a bit expensive.

We wanted to get dressed up and go somewhere close for my last night on my LA trip. Xiomara ticked those boxes. It happened to fall on a monday night so the restaurant was quiet. Service was great. I really loved the ceviche with scallops, I love anything that scallops can find their way into. Our entrees were perfectly enjoyable.... More

We've been to this place a multiple occasions. We've never had a bad meal, but we've never left with the feeling we had a really good meal either. The Pros: The atmosphere is great-dark wood with a beautiful bar and nice decorative touches. The dining room is two stories; the front part is open and has a two story ceiling;... More

This is not a fancy place. There is a funky atmosphere with multiple pics of Herbie Hancock, Joni Mitchell and Van Morrison on the wall. Jazz playing quietly in the background. Great mojitos made with real sugar cane. Small wine list. I found the menu to be a little unfocused, however I had two of the best dishes I have... More

This restaurant, which is very un-assuming from the outside, is one of the best restaurants I have eaten at in a long time. Even though the owner, Xiomara, is the chef of cuban cuisine, this food is truly incredible and goes beyond cuban cooking. I had never had ceviche before and therefore had no means of comparison, but what a... More

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
