It's hard to write a review because everything here was just the best. Shaking beef entree was our table's favorite. Among the appetizers, the crispy calamari stood out for me. There wasn't a single tough piece in the entire dish. I also recommend rolling duck...More

The appetizers are amazing and the food is decent. The service is way too slow though. Ahi Tuna Tatare and Papaya Salad are really good. For drinks, Sparkly Diamond is good as well,

We slipped into Xanh on a Friday afternoon, during a stroll down Castro Street. "Do you have a reservation" asked the hostess. (no) "No problem" she said, and then she led us to just the right table! The buffet offers a wide variety of dishes,...More

I've been at Xanh a few times, and keep getting disappointed with the food. (why do I come back? because someone else made the reservation ;) For example: A tuna tartar is served in a high-glass vase filled with dry-ice smoke. Looks very impressive. But...More

Oh, good question! But it's probably faster and more effective to call the restaurant and ask, because most restaurants are not as on top of their TripAdvisor commentary as we'd like to think ;-)
