“Very good bistro”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were coming back from the Coral World Park to St. Thomas and we stopped here to have lunch. We ordered shrimp escargot and a specialty of the day, seafood linguine. In the first dish, there was an interesting and intriguing mixture between the flavor of the shrimps and the goat cheese.
The linguini were cooked "the italian way", in the sense that the were cooked "al dente" and that's something very rare to find. The seafood in the pasta was good. Only one "negative" remark: the pasta was probably a bit too greasy.

“Fun Night Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

Nine ladies out the night before the wedding! They didn't seem to mind all the noise we made! The server was very friendly and efficient. We really enjoyed the food and their drink were great. The restaurant was very small but they used the space well.

“Good food, but was loud”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

My wife and I came here after trying to venture out to find new and different restaurants on the island. We were seated pretty much immediately and the bartender was very attentive and sweet. We ended up getting the backed goat cheese salad and the Portobello to split and all was delicious, the atmosphere was really loud and I couldn't hear my wife barely so we left pretty much right after our meal.

“Disgusting - No. Really.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

I sent my meal back. Twice. It was undercooked. They had a good review online, but I'm not getting sick while on vacation. Gross. Don't go here.

“Awful!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We visited XO for the first time for dinner and it was terrible. Service was very slow, maybe because the bartender was also a hostess, a server and a bartender. Food was OVERPRICED and not good, we ordered "brick oven cheese pizza", pizza was not cooked in brick oven. Chicken salad was very plain, no flavor at all. We ordered sashimi, which my son and my husband had most of and by the time we got to our resort, they were fighting for the bathroom and spent next 2 hours alternating the throne with terrible stomach pains. I would not recomend it to anyone, save your money and eat somewhere else!
