While on vacation in Santa Monica, my husband and I dined at Xino and it was a wonderful experience! We sat on the rooftop overlooking the 3rd Street Promenade area - Beautiful area and fantastic location! It was chilly out so they brought over a 'people heater' for us to stay warm and comfortable. Our server was so sweet and made great suggestions for our meal and cocktails. She also told us about the restaurant and all of the specials they have on different days of the week in case we wanted to come back during our visit. We love Dim Sum so we ordered the Dim Sum Trio as an appetizer and it was delicious! We have had Dim Sum in may different areas and this was one of the best we have had - nice large dumplings that were fully stuffed! We also ordered the Kobe Beef Sliders which had an amazing flavor and shared the Hong Kong Style Crispy Noodles with seafood on the top. The manager came to our table and introduced himself, which is always pleasant, and was so very nice and personable! It was an overall wonderful experience and we would go back for sure!
