Regularly dine here, not for some time due to COVID. Food faultless with James at the helm, but looks like undergone some changes in staffing/ management maybe even changed hands. Has very different service vibe now, lost some of the personal touchs and has trade them for Noosa standard blah blah. Food will always make me want to return,but service is important. A dying art/ skill these days.

The service was very good. The food was pleasant, I was expecting a little bit more. I wouldn't spend that much again for what it was.

Easy going but attentive service and excellent food. Such generous portions, we had to take home the rest of the duck curry and the barramundi....and they took into consideration one of our party who had a nut allergy. We'll go back. Effortlessly five stars!

Our family dining group is back on after lockdown. Looking for refined Asian food on the coast delivered with class. We enjoyed the family lunch spread, finding the food delicious, true to its roots; while showcasing ingredients, such as the barra. Loved the ease of service, very professional and yet can enough to deliver experience without pretense. We will be back. Thank you.

Although the service was excellent, timed well between courses & not intrusive the food wasn’t anything superior, I’ve tasted lots of Asian fusion from high end to street food & none of the dishes from either the Meat or Vegetarian menu really wowed us (one of us was veg), it was promising & sounded good on the menu but failed to leave an impression. It was ok, but we were underwhelmed.

Food was lovely the tasting plate had 6 courses all Quite different. The plates were quite small and it could really have done with a bigger size offering with maybe more vegetables or a serving of rice to fill you up.

Classic modern Asian fare, served with a minimum of fuss. We were there for Yum Cha. There were 9 dishes, and we had trouble deciding which one was best because they were all outstanding. The serves were generous too.

We had such a lovely anniversary lunch at Embassy XO. They accommodated us by providing a table that could fit a high chair beside it for our baby. Service was excellent - staff were friendly and recommended great wines. Banquet lunch was delicious, amazing value and we felt extremely well fed by the end of it. Would highly recommend Embassy XO!!!

This was my second visit to this place, my first visit was awesome and I really was looking forward to coming back! However while the service was fantastic and the place is very well presented, I paid a small fortune and walked away hungry.

Pretty disappointed and won’t be coming back.

It was a nice treat to try to the banquet menu however my husband and I left feeling hungry. We felt the portion sizes could have been bigger (one dumpling each was such a tease), or there could have been some added rice to the main meals. There was only one option for the dessert which unfortunately I did not enjoy so my husband ate it for me.

The food was delicious, that is why we wanted more.

We do however hope they change their menu options to alacarte, if they do, we will definitely be back.

Staff were exceptionally lovely.

We dined on Fathers day and were advised that it was a set menu for the day. Didn't matter. The set menu was delicious. Everything was prepared fresh to order as we progressed thru it. The portions were generous and every course was very tasty, Well done Chef! Cocktails and wine list are adequate and the service was very good. Can't wait to get back there and have a crack at the a la carte menu.

We spent a lovely 2 hours at XO enjoying the 6 course degustation menu. The food is outstanding; pobably some of the best meals I've eaten! We especially loved watching the action in the kitchen with head chef James making it all look seamless! Thank you to all the team at XO

The food was excellent and so were the recommended wines to go with the respective dishes, but would have preferred a full ala carte menu, but I realise these are different times at the moment with COVID, but the full menu is available in the bar area so I am not sure why it is not possible in the dining area as well

This restaurant has outstanding service. The food is excellent, but its service is what impresses me every time. They are particularly good with handling diet restrictions. This visit, they had one coeliac/veggo, 3 gluten free, and one crab allergy to contend with. For a place with a ‘fixed’ menu they provided a beautiful meal for each variation and they did it with grace, courtesy and care. Bravo XO. You are fabulous and that is why I keep coming back.

Im not a "foodie" and i normally dont do reviews but the food at EmbassyXO was some of the best food I've ever eaten. Me, my wife and 2 mates had the tasting menu (cant decide what was the best, would be between the crab, duck or short rib dishes) and my 3 yr old daughter had a duck bun bao, veggie spring rolls, chocolate bao and saffron ice cream and those were fantastic too. Service was great also, very attentive and happy to accommodate my 3yr old for the night. Ive already recommended to family and friends!

While on the top end of pricing.....it’s worth every cent. So it’s actually great value....the degustation and wine pairing was excellent. Servings were just right for this type of menu. Our duck was a bit ducky, gamey... so perhaps a little more experimenting on that...unless you like it that way. But the rest was just exquisite and would definitely recommend it and go again. A great all round experience...and no food smells in the restaurant whatsoever....a lot of thought has gone into the delicate flavours, wine pairing and general ambience. Well done....
