Great Food, Slow Sevice

We went here for dinner on a Saturday night. We had reservations for 8:30pm. The restaurant was pretty full. We were seated right away upstairs. Our server was slow to get to us. Once he did, he did a good job. He kept our water glasses full and would check in with us every once in awhile. We were... read more

I stopped in on a Wednesday night with 2 friends. Valet is $8. We were the only diners that evening, at 6pm....that is what I mean by quiet restaurant. Good service, good food. I wasn't blown away by anything. I ordered the Sweet Potato Croquettes and the White Truffle Risotto with Shrimp...the dishes were tasty, but not memorable. The Mojitos... More

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.

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

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
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.
