Went here night after Thanksgiving with some friends.

Menu offered a variety of items (many veggie friendly) which was awesome. Very tasty food and cool vibe.

Our Waiter was a bit impatient with clearing plates though.

We are huge fans of their sister restaurant Traif so decided to give Xixa a try. Loved the food -- there were four of us so we were able to sample the majority of the menu and everything was delicious, interesting and fun. The drinks are great too, such a cool idea to make a margarita with high end tequila poured over flavored ice cubes! We will be back for sure.

I've now eaten at Xixa 3 times and it proves once again to deliver creative, amazing food with classy and "on it" service. The first two visits we selected items off the menu ourselves, but this time we were a larger group and chose the tasting menu. Great choice, tons of food, left stuffed and happy.

We were promised a special meal by our host ....and we left completely impressed.

The four of us selected the 'tasting menu' to experience the full range that Xixa promises - a fusion of Asian and Latin American foods. And Xixa delivered!

The tasting menu ultimately included twelve separate dishes to be shared - typically small or, well, just a taste. Cumulatively, they proved to be totally satisfying for each of us.

Just the next day (for this review, sorry) the many dishes are a veritable blur of plates and amazing tastes.

The twelve plates included: a 'deconstructed chips and dip' - a morsel of a tomato and masa; spicy and caramelized carrots; a lettuce wrap/taco with smoked duck and salsas; smoked venison with sweet spices; chicken liver pate in a sopapilla; grilled Brussels Sprouts leaves; bone marrow; spicy flan; and more.

Every dish was creative, very flavorful in new ways, beautiful, and presented to share.

The price was a 'steal' for value delivered and received.
