Last month I celebrated my 21st birthday at one of the most Instagramable restaurants in Dallas! If I were a restaurant, I'd definitely be XOXO Dining Room. From the pink building, to the picture-worthy garden, to the DJ's music selection, it could not have been a more perfect place to celebrate my 21st.
When You Arrive
If your reservation is before 8pm, valet is free which is great because the parking on Ross Ave is a bit limited. The valet is next to the XO Garden which is not the main entrance (this was a little confusing for us) so walk past the garden to the pink doors to enter the dining room. I would recommend stopping in the garden walk way for cute pictures though!
The Dining Room
When you walk into the restaurant, there is this LED XO wall that is great for pictures! I would recommend using the flash so your pictures turn out better than ours lol
I was a little hesitant about being at a small table located in the middle of the restaurant (opposed to a booth) but like I said, the whole restaurant is so cute that all of our pictures still turned out great!
The big pink booths are reserved for party sizes of 5-7 and mine was unfortunately downsized to four people at the last minute but I did sneak over to one of the empty booths to press the champagne button while we were waiting on our food!The Food
Let's start with dessert- I requested a cupcake ferris wheel and when it was brought out, the DJ played a birthday song, and the waitress brought a champagne glass with sparklers in it too! These were by far the best cupcakes I have had in a while, I was pleasantly surprised.
The food was overall fantastic! McCray and I had the fried chicken and mashed potatoes which were so good. And the portion sizes were great too. I don't think any of us had complaints about the food.
Their drink menu includes lots of fun drinks to choose from. I liked that they also had non-alcoholic drinks so that my friends could also get something fun.
It was freezing outside but we couldn't resist stopping in the XO Garden for some more cute pictures before heading home.
You look so cute!!!!!!ReplyDelete
