I went for my birthday dinner and ended up having one of the best meals of my life. Our server was warm, knowledgable about the food and wines, and walked us through the menu without making us feel like rubes. My boyfriend is allergic to most fish, so we skipped the seafood, but the other entrees were exceptional-- the lamb and the short ribs with the X/O signature sauce in particular. Although we ended up ordering one less dish than was recommended by our server, we left wonderfully full. I also thought that the timing of the courses was perfect-- plenty of time to enjoy our food and converse without either feeling rushed through the meal or wondering where the rest of our food had gotten to. The drinks were also impressive-- they have a collection of creative signature cocktails and a wonderful sommalier.
Altogether, a wonderful fine dining experience. Not somewhere I would be able to go often, but I would definitely recommend for a special occasion.

Pros: cuisine, wine flights, friendly and knowledgable staff, ambience

Cons: parking, price. not somewhere I could afford often, except now I want it all the time!

Keep looking for someting interseting. Food over cooked Fois Gras, Chicken in confused lobster sauce. Mussels chewy. Salad rasberry sauce - og come on it asint the 80's. Too muh going on on most plates. Service ususal Chicago pleasantries, nice waiter, no real knowledge. Wine flights pretty decent but not great. Customers in foul mid west idea of matching..forget in fashion. Being in a gay area if this was west village NYC it wouldn't last a month just on the standard of food..

We enjoyed a great dinner monday night at Chicago gem. This small restaurant is just a few blocks from Wrigley field and easy to find. The wife and I have eaten all over the country and this is, by far, one of the best meals we've ever had. We HIGHLY recommend the ribeye and the scallops. The scallops were served with pumpkin dumplings that were incredible. Make sure to save room for dessert. Their pastry chef is talented and not afraid to experiment.

I really loved the food. I was very impressed with how each dish was explained to me in detail. The menu was extremely creative. I would highly reconmend this restaurant to anyone.

I have heard good things about this restaurant and went on a Thursday night (a few months ago) around 9:00pm and was promptly seated. The problem is that for 10-15 minutes we were complete ignored - no menu, no wait service, no anything. When I tried to make eye contact with some of the passing servers to subtly get their attention they almost appeared to be avoiding us so after approximately 15 minutes we walked out. The hostess seemed a bit embarrased on our way out but nobody ever apologized for the lack of service.

I have actually heard very good things about the food and the atmosphere seemed nice except that the tables were extremely close together. I have heard that the food is fairly inventive and utilizes strong flavor combinations but at this point I prefer to frequent establishments that actually want my money and my business.

This is my favorite restaurant in Chicago. Yes, there might be a wait, but that's because it's such a wonderful place to dine. Yes, the plates are small, but that is the theme of the restaurant, and they readily admit this. The food is fabulous (the scallops with pumpkin dumplings are a little taste of heaven!). The desserts are even more delicious. Excellent wine list, friendly bartenders and servers, sexy atmosphere.

X/O Resturant was one of the worst customer service dinning expereince I've ever encountered. Our table that was pointed out to us by the hostess was giving away to a larger group that came in after us.

I can not believe that this establishment believes that it is okay, to treat clientele in such a manner. And if all of the above were not bad enough, upon our departure the hostess said, Oh, if you should decide to come back, just tell them when you call to book, that we werent able to get you in before and we will treat you so much better.

Is the X/O definition of value = to small portions that are expensive? If so, then they have succeeded. My group of 4 averaged $55 per person and left hungry and unsatisfied. The location and decor have great potential but the small portions and high cost are barriers to diners happiness.

Wonderful & interesting food--some of the best in Lakeview. Great wine list & sommelier. Very attentive & polite service (not at all snobby). Let's hope they can keep up the high quality & great service for their official grand opening next week & in the future! We'll be back.
