Even though we live in the Warehouse District neighborhood, it is still a treat to go to XO. Our favorites are usually the filet and the "tomahawk" steak. The hostess, manager, and waitstaff are routinely classy to the level of a 4 or 5-star hotel. I wish I knew the name of the favorite bartender; if you are served by a Sumo with a ponytail, you have hit the jackpot.
Our recent dinner with a couple visiting from Manhattan started with very large shrimp in a cocktail, 2 great bottles of red wine, and their traditional great steaks. I thought our guest was a little nuts ordering pasta at a steak place, but it turned out to be just as delicious as our meals.
This is consistently a great place.
