“What does XO stand for?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

Could be Xtra Ordinary? Hugs and Kisses (Internet Slang) or just Xtra gOOd, but whatever we sure like it! Our second night in St. Thomas (Sunday night 2/17/13) we had dinner at XO in the Red Hook area. Great place, great food (and reasonable for St. Thomas) and we enjoyed listening to Bryan Dean. Great guitar player and CD for $5. My wife and I had a nice evening there.

“A Deliciously Mean Sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

The Roast Beef sandwich here is not to be taken lightly in delicious. Do not assume that there will be any left over, no matter how tiny you think your stomach is.
The staff under Jess is great.
Only fault is that i hate to leave.

“Five Weeks on Saint Thomas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Just back from five weeks on Saint Thomas or should I say five weeks at the XO Bistro. We have been visiting the island for years so we know what we like and what to avoid. XO exceeded our expectations this year. We did not eat every dinner here but I would say at least 75% of the time we would find ourselves ordering the special of the evening. They have a great happy hour with $5.00 wines and $3.00 Stoli drinks. They offer other items such as beer but we never get past the wine and the Stoli. Monday and Thursday night they offer a great prime rib cooked to perfection. I think my husband had this one dish at least four times always cooked very rare which he loves. Tuesdays are home cooking for only $15.00, they offered Cajun Chicken Pot Pie (my favorite), spagetti and meat balls, Jambalya, Shepard's Pie while we were there. We tried every appetizer but the baked brie was my favorite. The lobster escargot deserves high marks. Every dish with the scallops was delicious. I could go on and on about the food but high marks must go to the entire staff. It is no wonder that they received the best bartending staff for 2013 in a recent Daily News poll. Each staff member goes out of their way to make you feel welcome even Billy who brings ice out to the bar always has a smile and a big hello. One night we sat next to the chef John and his wife while they were having dinner. This man can cook and takes pride in the presentation of his food. He is orignally from Maryland so I did not hesitate to order his crab cakes which I never order out because I am usually disappointed. Thank you to Lindsley, Jesse, Jen, Kristen and Tara for making our vacation very enjoyable.

“Like a neighborhood restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Great place to relax and have a drink. Dining at the bar is special. Try the bacon wrapped chicken. Well worth the trip but stay away from the risotto - dry and tasteless. Overall, a nice place - wait staff makes you feel special.
