- The XO Restaurant is located in one of the most historic districts of Montreal and reflects the old world charm and grandeur of Europe. Eric Gonzalez has created a kitchen that delivers exquisite French preparations. Located within the Hotel Le St-James, this ornate salon was earlier the 'Banker's Hall'. There are two mezzanine levels offering nicely spread out seating that encourage smaller groups and intimate conversations. Opt for the lemon flavored chicken and blue cheese sandwich at high tea or classic cocktails in XO Restaurant. This is a great place for formal breakfast meetings.
