I went out with my girlfriends for a night out. We picked Xanthus as none of us had ever been there before. The lovely dining room manager, Melissa, showed us to our table right away and we had an ocean view. I had the panzanella salad, delicious, and swordfish. Melissa suggested that I have it medium to well and it... More
The evening waitstaff was fantastic. The breakfast waitstaff needs intensive training in customer service and manners.
Beautiful scenic waterfront dining. Ordered BLT sandwich, which would have been perfect if they had blotted the fat off the bacon. It was too greasy. Skimped on tomatoe.

Beautifully presented appetizers, then we had excellent fish and pork, with nice sauces that did not overpower. We enjoy sitting by the window to see the view of Somes... More
The dining room has the feel of a formal private club which, in our experience was sustained by the liveried staff and Frank Sinatra music selection. Luckily we had our pick of tables with a broad view of the harbor and islands beyond and a bright young waitress. I had a delicious goat cheese tart over warm spinach and bok... More
