XR offers a more causal version of chef Carlo Scotto's formal fine dining menu at Xier.

Open for lunch and dinner, XR pays homage to seasonal produce sourced from organic farms across the British Isles. Chef Carlo Scotto plays on variation with his in-depth knowledge and options for ingredients and organic produce to refresh the menu every 2 weeks.

XR's dessert menu is skilfully created by our master pastry chef. Impeccable presentation and an exquisite mix of ingredients embody the sweet offerings at XR.

The Cocktail Bar that opens up from it's bi-folding doors leads onto the terrace and gives XR the energy for guests to enjoy their cocktails and Champagne in a wonderful outdoor setting in the heart of Marlylebone, an area long known for fashionable drinks and dining in Central London.

On a hot afternoon XR was a haven of quiet and cool. It might be much noisier in the evenings but wonderful at lunchtime. The food was delicious, perfectly balanced and my fish was fabulously fresh.

I like the atmosphere in the restaurant, however the food was not convincing. The truffle fries were if anything average (no truffle really) and the tuna steak was completely well done. The side for the tuna arrived when we were almost done. Not a great experience.

A quiet Tuesday evening but despite being busy upstairs in Xier we had a delightful delicious meal and service standards extremely high.

We had an excellent dinner at XR. Every dish we ordered was flavourful, creative, well presented and most importantly delicious. We shared 8 dishes in all which allowed us to sample a lot of the menu. The tuna tartare is always a winner but my favourite this time was the beet salad. Enjoy and don’t forget to leave room for dessert!

Food excellent, service charming, the frosted glass windows are weird, make the atmosphere flat, so we will go back but it won't be a favourite until the windows open for the summer.

Really good food.
Very quiet lunchtime but that didn't spoil the experience.

We booked a 1.30 table and the booking system suggested that the restaurant was open all afternoon but that we might only have the table for 2 hours.
Turns out is closes at 2.30 so the staff were understandably a little restless, but still very polite, by the tome we left at 3.30.

Tasty, good tapas style food. But way overpriced (e.g. one plate with 4 chicken pieces is £22). Portions are very small.

Very nicely decked out restaurant but we were the only customers apart from two people known to the staff - perhaps they were the owners. Because all the food comes at once the pasta dish was cold by the time we ate it and that spoilt the enjoyment for me at least. It has potential and I owed like to see it succeed but the ambience was zero.

We went for the Saturday brunch. There was a lot of food but it was all rather ordinary and not as interesting as we expected. The service was friendly and efficient but the restaurant was cold and we ate with our coats on.

So disappointing, this place does not know what it is.

The food is solid but not spectacular - Truffle Arancini were superb but pulled beef was so wet & over cooked it was almost inedible. Lamb sliders were good but too rich. The Baba desert was fun but lacked texture & turned to soup.

But the ambience is terrible. The decor is a mix of greys lacks any warmth. The location is lower end of end of Marylebone high st and they decided to open the windows which promptly turned the room into the sounds of a motorway. Eating in a end restaurant and having Bruno Mars blasting On stereo just doesn’t work, even at lunchtime.

The staff are fun, attentive and a little bit too efficient, we could have been out in an hour if we hadn’t asked to slow things down.

I left feeling very disappointed overall.

Went for the first time on a Thursday with a friend and thought about the salad for the next 24 hours. Went back on the Saturday with my husband because I had to see if the salad was really that good......it was...as was everything we had. Quiet neighborhood place to go- understand there is fine dining upstairs and at some point will try that of course but for the moment, the downstairs restaurant hits the spot. Sharing plates, good wine list, friendly staff....and really really good salad

Decent food spoilt by a lifeless atmosphere, the all too familiar "sharing" concept for which the dishes were not well suited, and a wine list that had been subject to such a brutal mark up that it was a struggle to find a bottle below £60. Oh and the annoyance of continuous flash photography from the eurotrash couple at the next table clearly trying to buff up their Instagram presence by modelling handbags next to food.

Beautifully decorated restaurant and like the concept of the dining area. If you want fine dining then good to book and it is fine dining cuisine, less than an normal plate, very stylish and well presented.

Attended the soft launch with a friend and I must say I was impressed with the attentive and smiley service and wonderful food. The Arancini was superb and so was the rib eye and aubergine. I like that they change the menu every two weeks. Looking forward to going back.
