Stopped here after selling the house for a celebratory beverage and some food. Everything was outstanding, had a few tapas and the lobster flatbread. The martinis we ordered were very good and not watered down . Would definitely come here again, nice place to relax, talk and enjoy a meal.

This is one of my favorite places in Manchester. The tapas are amazing. The tapas are to die for but the drinks, well those have to be tasted to be understood. Oh so good.... I recommend to all looking for a high end establishment that's super low key.

We have always had a good meal and a nice evening here. As I think of it, I wish we went here more often but we actually do not go out that often. We took a good friend on this occasion. He said his steak was wonderful. My wife enjoyed the substitute pasta dish they were serving that evening. As... More

XO has a bounty of options for gluten free folks that are both delicious AND reasonably priced. The atmosphere is funky cool. Wine and cocktails are featured on the menu and the variety means that virtually everybody can choose something they like. This is a "go to" spot for us!

Our service was atrocious. We waited 30 minutes before anyone even came to our table after being seated. We ordered some small plates/apps to share and ordered salads for our main course. After getting our small plates/apps, the table next to us were seated, had ordered, were served and had finished before our salads even were served. We had the... More

This restaurant has it together. Great food, great service. You get what you pay for, a truly worded description. I'm not afraid to pay a little more for the best, and this place stands above the rest. Highly recomended for great food prior to a lovely evening at the Historic Palace Theater. Make reservations it's worth it. Ask for Joseph,... More

We tried XO a few years ago and couldn't remember why we don't go back. Now we remember. The atmosphere is very nice although a little loud in the dining area. I ordered one of their specialty drinks of hot pepper infused vodka. It came back bland tasting more like olive brine than anything. I asked to see if they... More

XO lives up to the hype with tapas, small plates and full entrees. The food is well balanced from every point of view, with organic and vegan options as well. Don't miss desert!
