4 years ago not bad. Two years ago I said I would not be back. Ordered the prime rib special medium rare. It came well well done and was about 2 ounces if that. They had run out but didn't tell me. The vegetables were almost raw. So last year - late October 2012 gave them another chance. I try... More

I dropped in while I was checking out my new neighbourhood. I decided to enjoy a nice "adult beverage" and a soup/sandwich combo. The waitress was very friendly and the beer was cold. The food was very good, and I considered a good value for a lunch combo. My only complaint was that I sat inside on a warm day... More

The new owner need to work on cleaning up the place. The setup is not right for that place. When they have bands/shows there, it is hard to enjoy because you cant see. The staff should have a dress code for work and more customer service skills. The food is good most of the time. The have been times when... More

3 of us went to Xeno's for a friend's Birthday this past Saturday. We were greeted by the friendly staff to grab a seat where we wanted. We ordered appetizers, the warm artichoke dip is a large and great value for sharing. Wine by the glass is around $6.00, our entree were very good, highly recommend the hot sandwiches. There... More

I can't even begin to rate the food, because we didn't even get a chance to sit down and eat. We wanted to go there on Friday to celebrate a family occasion. We were interested in just getting quick appetizers and maybe drinks. It was around 9:00 pm when we walked in and the place was half full. We waited... More

We chose Xeno's for dinner one night because a friend of mine bought one of those coupon booklets that offer great deals. This was a coupon booklet exclusively for Xeno's that she bought from work with the intent to go there because it was in town (it wasn't cheap either). It was 3 couples and when we got there it...

I have no sense of direction and after a few wrong turns we just happened to see this attractive looking restaurant. The place is beautifully decorated inside and out with wrought ironwork including statues and (iron) plants. The bar is also very inviting and set the mood for a very enjoyable lunch. Portion sizes were very acceptable and the huge... More

Normally when a place gets one bad rating and mostly 4 and 5 stars, I tend to ignore the bad rating. In retrospect, this was a mistake. The latest restaurant to occupy this space, Xenos is badly in need of a makeover. The decor has not changed in the past five years and the service was deplorable. My wife and... More

This restaurant is a gem in Ajax and quality of food comparable to good restaurants in Toronto. They have great pasta's that are not over cooked at a reasonable prices. Their luncheon menu offer good lunches at around $10. They have an outdoor patio and staff are friendly and offer good service.

My wife and I frequent Xenos frequently, we also recommend them to all our friends. Since moving here from Toronto we have found them to have one of the best Restaurants of their class ( Bistro). Try it you will not be disapointed!
