I gave XS 3 stars because they have solid sushi, however they also allow their servers to add on automatic gratuity to the bill. This seems really tacky, and at the very least they should let customers know this. Apparently it is at the discretion...More

I love XS! It is like a hidden jewel in Baltimore. I love their breakfast. The french toasts are big and full of flavor. I went recently and my friend wanted her waffle to be cooked very well done. They did not get it correct...More
