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

OMG, I found this place last week through the dine LA program and I already have plans to go back again tomorrow. What a little gem?! I took a friend who's here from Zurich and we both loved everything we ordered. They have a great chef and everything was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend this place and so... More

We have been to Xiomara twice, once with other couples, more recentlys with our family and both times we have come away pleased. The atmosphere is welcoming and the design touches draw your eyes around the room. The staff welcomes you warmly as soon as you arrive and remain attentive throughout your stay. We shared three appetizers for the table... More

Came her for Dine LA and I got the pork belly, salmon, and tres leches cheesecake for my meal. I love the vibe of the place. It has a family/romantic feel to it and the servers are really friendly. First of all..I LOVE their bread assortment appetizer! It's definitely something I haven't had before. The pork belly was good and... More

This was our second time at Xiomara and it was as excellent as we remembered. The food is delicious, sangria is tasty and the service is spectacular. You feel like royalty when you eat here. I also love the cuban coffee - it is the perfect way to end a meal!

Xiomara is usually not very busy at lunch, so you get excellent service along with the divine food. My current favorite: Crispy duck confit salad with baby frisee, arugula, red onions, hard boiled quail eggs and sherry vinaigrette. An interesting appetizer is the Crispy pork belly with oven- roasted potatoes and pork jus... delicious. If you happen to be in... More

I eat out a lot. I like good food. Some places have food that is excellent, but not memorable. This meal was something that I will remember for quite a while. Lots of flavor, perfect balance, very good ingredients, beautiful presentation, and very nice service. Their original mojitos are the best I've tasted (and are award-winning). The music is soothing... More
