You can't go wrong here. The wine list, the menu, the atmosphere and the service are top notch. It's also located very conveniently next to some other fun hot spots around Red Hook such as Duffy's if a post dinner cocktail might be in order. I had the crab slathered mahi and was very pleased. My wife had the scallops... More

As the highest rated restaurant on this side of the island we had reasonably high expectations. Apparently my expectations are a bit too high. Since the bar/dining room is dark it is easier to discount that the seating area a bit shabby. The bar itself is quite attractive and interesting. The menu is limited but there are a number of...

We ate here recently on our stay in St. Thomas. Ordered the scallop appetizer. It was amazing. Also ordered a salad with Mahi Mahi. Also a great choice. Spoke with some of the locals at the bar. Everyone was so nice and friendly. Will definitely eat here ago on our next trip!

Located across from Duffy's Love Shack, XO Bistro has more of a up-scale feel and fare selection than many of the less formal Red Hook restaurants. The service staff was very good as well and helpful making this a nice place for dinner on the East Side of St Thomas. We had heard good things about XO and were eager... More

We had our dinner at this place. It was full so we had the dinner at the bar. I was surprised to learn that they had a great variety of drinks and lots of wine options. The dinner was great: we had prawns, pan fried scallops. Dessert was a miss. It is a very simple ambience with nice waitress that... More

Super place for a nice meal in Redhook. We went in for two meals every dish was on point minus some over cooked lamb. The lasagna is not a normal recipe and may be some of the best I have had in the world. Very nice. Only complaints would be the overlooked lamb. Every other dish we had was spot... More

A group of eight of us had dinner and had various dishes from vegetarian Wellington to salad with tuna to lamb chops. Vegetarian Wellington was kind of bland, lamb chops lacked flavor and tuna in the salad what kind of mushy, my guess it was previously frozen. Drinks were good and they had a good wine selection which kind of... More
