Hey, XO Chef: if you don't have enough scallops and butternut squash for a $26 entree, then send your waitress back to our table and we would have ordered something else. Hubby and I ordered the scallops, and got 4. On a plate of gooey...More

We came for morning cup of espresso . Waitress was very polite and welcome. But espresso and the way it was done was terrible. That coffee was far away from real espresso ,no foam and not hot. For $6.50 per cup I expect REAL ESPRESSO....More

Great place to grab a drink. They have one of my favs, bourbon/whisky smash. Done decently well. Dark environment otherwise with good music generally. Will be back to try some of their food. Half off wine bottles on Mondays and fried chicken Wednesdays for 20$.

There was a high end feel in the restaurant. The server was very attentive and friendly. Expected a bit more from the cheese plate and the mimosas, but our actual brunch meals were delicious!

Nothing special in the realm of fine dining, but great for causal dining. Dark inside, older crowd - huddled over the bar. Not a great place for families.

The XO packs in so many folks the small kitchen cannot keep pace. The tables basically touch so there is no sense of private dining. The high density of people makes it impossible to chat with a date as well without shouting above the din....More
