Consistently recognized by diners and critics as “one of the best steakhouses in Ohio”, XO Prime Steaks, the brain child of Croatian born restaurateur, Zdenko Zovkic is an upscale modern steakhouse that provides the ultimate dining experience. Zdenko is known for his hands-on, personalized approach to service, which keeps guests coming back for more. He has been in the restaurant business for over 25 years with his hospitality roots beginning in Cologne, Germany at the Intercontinental Hotel.
Upon his arrival to Cleveland in the mid-90s, Zdenko continued to develop his career in the restaurant and hospitality industry in numerous capacities such as manager of several locations around town, food and beverage director at the Ritz Carlton, and owner of his first project, Seasons in Bratenahl. His great talent and keen sense for the restaurant business led him to fulfill his vision to open an exclusive dining destination in downtown Cleveland. In September of 2003 XO Prime Steaks opened its doors and catapulted onto Cleveland’s dining scene. Over the years XO has helped maintain the Warehouse district as a premier dining neighborhood in Cleveland.
