this establishment has recently closed it's doors. It had good food but I think it was a little off the beaten path. Also the construction of the hotel hampered parking and getting there.

What fun we had at this tucked away warehouse style bistro in the heart of Traverse City! I dined here with a group of five women and we all enjoyed our meals. The chef informed us upon arrival that the specialties that evening were Thai food.On the recommendation of our waitress, four of us ordered the Pad Thai, which is... More

This place was recommended by a local merchant and we were not disappointed! We needed a quick snack, so we shared the nachos. I would confidently say they may have been the best nachos I have ever eaten in a restaurant. The food was very fresh and had plenty of taste. Great recommendation, top of my list for a return...

We wanted to try Xylo, as a group of local girls on a night out. Called and made a reservation, but did arrive 15 minutes late. We're seated, but served drinks in shifts. Two ladies were skipped, and ended up going up to the bar. Food menu is great, and prices were good. However, our food took forever. Our drinks... More

Great salads and entrees in a wannabe location. We frequent this bistro often but it's closed on Sundays in the winter.

We were passing through town and stopped into the stained glass store near Xylo to ask where the owner recommends we eat. He referred us to Xylo and it was terrific. One of us had a sandwich, another the thai noodle dish, and I had the Xylo salad that was terrific. All of us agree we would return again and... More

I sat at the bar on a Wednesday night. Had soup and the evenings fish special. Quality of food was pretty good but not awesome but the prices I thought were reasonable. The only complaint I can make is, the evening I was there they were a bit over staffed. As a result they had extra time on their hands... More

By boat or by car this is an awesome spot to eat. They have a fun mix of Asian / American dishes that will please any pallet. Their thai noodles are great and they make a sushi roll called a Godzilla that is wonderful. I believe it was a special. The ribs were delicious and the calamari was fun also.... More

A piece of big town cafe in a small northern Michigan town. Service has never failed to be great and the food has been even better. More Mediterranean than American from a Chef that can do it right. Nice wine selection and reasonable meal portions that leave room for dessert. (Which you will want to have). Reasonable priced and we... More

We came to Xylo primarily to hear Al Jankowski perform with Elizabeth Rivers Sexton. The food was surprisingly good and the music was superb. We stayed until the end with many glasses of wine. I had the flank steak and my wife had Xylo focaccia bread pizza. She loved it! The flank steak was decent, nicely spiced. We'll go back.
