The salmon was cooked beyond perfection, a wonderful meal.
The Pork Chop was incredible.
I feel like dinner here will be yummy and a Treat, not just plain old food.

The restaurant is small but very inviting. It is a great place to bring a date, as the atmosphere is very chic and classy. I was there before the dinner rush, and the service was amazing. The menu had so many great options, I had trouble deciding. The stuffed dates were phenomenal , the chili, apricot glazed chicken wings were delectable, and my lobster mac and cheese were so rich and creamy, I could not finish it. For dessert, I recommend the bread pudding. Everyone in the restaurant recommended it. I passed on dessert, but could not keep my fork out of my partners bread pudding. BTW - I don't even like bread pudding. And lastly, I was most impressed with the portion sizes. At XO you will not be disappointed with the portions or the quality of their food.

We arrived without reservations, but were seated within 10 minutes. We ordered mostly the small plates and appetizers, starting with the potato croquettes, stuffed dates and crab spring rolls. They were all delicious. We also got the braised short rib, cranberry apple, brie, corn chowder and grilled flatbread. Again, delicious, except we weren't fans of the flatbread, not sure if it was the blue cheese or what. My wife loved the dates and the brie. I want to go back and just get the chowder and the short rib. Next time I will order a little at a time as we ended up with too much food. The atmosphere is very nice, and the staff was very friendly. They have a nice wine list. I am looking forward to several return visits.
