Great, high-end and authentic Mexican food with a twist. Unusual dishes cleverly put together. Chose a starter recommended by the waiter, tasted delicious but the deep fried crickets on the side were a surprise. Tasted one and it was okay. Duck main was delicious too.

The food and service are excellent. Noisy for romantic conversation...but the food surpasses expectations. No matter what each person ordered we were all satisfied with the taste and presentation. The wine list was terrific and lots of choices for our diners.

Xochi is now one of our favorite restaurants. The cocktail program is amazing as the drinks were just superb. Food is delicious and very different. The bartenders were helpful with ordering. We will be back!
