If you're into watching people walk through the restaurant to get to Cafe Atlantic (yeah, the entrance for the cafe is through them), then this is the place for you. First, we were at Vive next door having cocktails--planned to have dinner there, but apparently on Friday nights, it turns into a club, hmmm...whatever. So, we saw Xoimara a few doors down with a few people in it--looked decent enough. Came in, the Waiter/Host asked if we had a reservation, and when we said no, the gentlemen proceeded to say, "uhhh...We'll try to fit you in". Mind you, it's practically empty.
We were seated immediately. My friends ordered the Salmon, Lamb and Seafood Paella, while I had the chicken with Saffron rice (horrible, too bland)--they all definitely outordered me. They seemed to like their meals, except my boyfriend didn't like his salmon too much either.
The service was nice, but I was really put off at the initial attitude. The bill was about $200.00 for four including wine, so that wasn't too bad, but I definitely would have rather spent that somewhere else.
But the kicker is all those walking through the restaurant getting to cafe atlantic, I was like, "Damn, we should've gone there!"
I wouldn't go back or recommend the place at all.
Pros: Attentive service, somewhat romantic
Cons: The food
