Great venue for a wonderful, generous and sumptuous dining experience - the manager is always welcoming and the food its very well priced for value - my only negative would be the food during the so called "bar snacks" period, not up to the same quality!

A huge thank you to Embassy XO for the perfect Valentine's night! I was the lucky winner of a competition they were running and received a complimentary dinner for my husband and I. Wonderful food, service and company. One of our favourite restaurants in Noosa, see you again soon!

This was a very good meal for a full restaurant with a fixed menu for this special occasion. An entre, two mains served together and a sweet. While the individual dishes were all VG the portions were incredibly small for example one of the 2 mains consisted of 2 prawns. The other main was a small square of crisp belly... More

Hi. Thanks for the review. I'm glad you enjoyed the food on our special menu. Your feedback re the portion size is appreciated. Perhaps we tried to achieve too much for the night at the fixed price. We hope to see you again and will take your review into account when preparing other events. Cheers XO More

My husband and I enjoyed another really lovely meal at Embassy XO when we booked in for the $49 locals' deal (a set 3 course menu with a glass of wine or beer, on Wednesday and Thursday evenings). All staff were very attentive, the food arrived at well-timed intervals and the food itself was fantastic. We're not usually dessert eaters... More

We were really impressed with the quality of the food, flavors are amazing, we couldn't stop saying how yummy everything was ! We highly recommend the Bugs and its wonderful sauce, the snapper and the beef cheeks (so tender). Service is really attentive, friendly but professional. Will definitely go back

Chinese New Year set menu banquet. You know its been a bad night when you go home to eat. The portions were ridiculously small. Banquet congers the notion of lots of food. The sashimi entree was warm, the two mains when divided among the table equated to a spoon full of pork belly, 1 and a half prawns and a... More

Hi Andrew, I am sorry that you where obviously disappointed with your visit to XO. The 4 course set menu including a glass of wine on arrival at $68 per person was not a banquet but your feedback re the portion size is taken on board. I will pass it on to the kitchen. The lucky draws are optional to... More

Decided to do Chinese New Year lunch at Embassy XO. The quality of the food was superb! I highly recommend the Crab spring rolls and green chill sauce, but all of the dishes were wonderful. My only recommendation would be a couple of fussy kid options and perhaps steamed rice. Service was great: I ordered what I thought was a... More

On the weekend we had the XO Banquet with matching wine. The Oysters were delicious, a good combination with the shallots and lime. The second course consisted of the wontons, the spanner crab and the kimchi. The wontons and spanner crab were again delicious, the kimchi was a bit of a weird selection, for mind it didn't go well with... More

Went on Chinese New Year, booked in advance and showed no remorse for us waiting 40 mins for our table to be ready. Offered us a round of drinks as an apology after I had to even go up after waiting 30 mins to ask for a menu. They took a beer and 15% off our bottle of wine but... More

Hi. Sorry for your experience last weekend. As you can see from our other reviews it is not usual. All the items in the dish are on the menu. The spicy elements come from the XO sauce, kimchi and chilli etc..Sorry we couldn't turn around your night after it got off to bad start despite our best efforts. I hope... More
