We love exchange street. Everything there is delicious. However, I miss their old brunch menu.
Had a reservation and when we showed up host was rude. Barely acknowledged us. Not a great start. Sat for awhile before very nice waitress approached. Took our drink orders from an awesome enormous drink menu. Could have tried several. We got pistachio martini and white sangria. Waited a long time for my drink but sangria came quickly. As we sat and waited to order the noise level was almost unbearable. Large party behind us but not many other diners. We tried broccoli rabe egg rolls that were very good. Nice crispiness and flavor. We had the baked haddock over lobster risotto which was very good but we also had the short rib which was excellent. My only small issue was that it came with only 5 small wild mushroom raviolis. For $26 should have been more. But taste was very good. Would have ordered another drink if restaurant was not so loud. That is a shame. Overall staff was not great but food and drink menu very good.
Nice location on Exchange St. There is not a view but a large front patio is perfect for summer evenings. I'm so glad we chose the patio, the inside seating area was huge but the noise level was unbearable.
I had a martini which I didn't like much but the hamburger was simple but tasty. Our server was great!
Always a good time and great food
Never disappointed when I dine at Exchange Street Bistro!
We had never been, so did not know what to expect.
Bartender Pia was fabulous!
We ordered the fig pizza.. it was tasty!
Prices were totally reasonable and would love to go back.
Excellent haddock dish! Great service and pleasant waitstaff. Love their Prix fix menu. Excellent flourless chocolate torte!
We sat outside which was a treat. The service was excellent and food was delicious
Went there with a friend for a get together after the Covid. I had lobster Mac and cheese which was excellent. My friend had baked haddock which she loved.
Will be back soon.
Amazing as always
The service and food were great. Deanna was on top of her game and ably assisted by other friendly servers. A very comfortable ambiance.
We had the fixed price menu with the most DELICIOUS seafood paella!! The drinks were also great (strong & tasty), as was the service. Love this spot!!
Great food… Great value
Service is exceptional!
Great food and drinks for lunch!
Post-pandemic I wanted to try something new, and I had never eaten in Malden before! Casual lunch with a friend - we both had salads with protein on top. My friend enjoyed perfectly grilled large shrimp atop her Caesar salad, and I had perfectly grilled salmon on my house/bistro salad. Generous portions . The meal was so good that we tried the desserts too , artfully arranged flourless chocolate lava cake with raspberry coulis and vanilla ice cream and my friend had an apple crumble filled tart with Carmel sauce and ice creams. Everything was cooked perfectly well plated and presented. Very professional and friendly manager and staff. Highly recommend this restaurant which also offers function space and outdoor and indoor dining.
Great location, good food, at a reasonable price.
What needs improvement is the number of servers. They had only two wait staff for both outside and inside. Finally got up and asked the Manager for the bill.
They need more staff.
Brunch was yummy and the service was great!
Scrumptious Seafood Paella and Pork Chop entrees. Christina, such a sweet-smiling, attentive server! What a perfect dining out experience - and couldn’t resist Key Lime Cheesecake and Flourless Chocolate Torte as fabulous take-home desserts.
Love the atmosphere here. Been here multiple times. Awesome food, superb customer service, engaging staff.
Very nice place, nice interesting menu (the brocali rabe spring rolls are terrific). The only issue is service, they offer dozens of special martini's and the bar crew obviously can't keep up. The waitress took our drink order, disappeared for a Long Time. Finally came back and took food order. If they tighten the service would be great.
This has quickly become my favorite place in Malden. I've brought every friend I've had visit here and they're always shocked by the selection of cocktails and the quality of food.
Fantastic place. Delicious and always a treat.
The were 3 attempts to get our drinks right. We ordered a name brand rum and coke and after 2 tries was told the were using Pepsi. Tasted awful! The Moscow Mule I ordered was more like a Mai Tai with orange slices and a cherry on top.
The plates were good and the waitress was trying to do her best with the drink orders.
Always love this place, frequent flyer!
We arrived there and De’anna made sure we had comfortable seating for the amount of people we had. Great service and great food as always!!!
Love Pia & Rob there. Came for my birthday. They treat us awesome. The vibes are great. The cauliflower cheeseburger pizza is amazing. And strawberry sparkler is so good! Love this place & the people there.
Good food, good drinks & good staff!
Everything was amazing. I loved my pistachio martini. The haddock has cooked perfectly. Not dry or overcooked are all. Braised short ribs were very tender. No knife needed.
Service and food was great! They never disappoint!
Great night celebrating a bartenders birthday! Enjoyed the drinks as always!
Always great food and drinks! Such an awesome place!
Very tasty food. Went here with a big party and the service was still great. Got the lobester Mac and cheese, chicken quesadilla appetizer and steak to make a few. Drinks are a little pricy but very tasty and LOTS of options.
Limited menu, but the food was cooked perfectly. Our server was outstanding.
their bread pudding is to die for. i had the steak frites and the steak was tender and juicy, overall a very satisfying meal
The Exchange is a very nice restaurant and each time that we've been the food is presented beautifully and it was delicious.
The atmosphere is nice and it was a little loud from one of the large tables.
Late Mother’s Day.
Great service by Gary the bartender! Awesome drinks & food. Was a quiet evening. I enjoyed it.
A great Mother’s Day meal for our recently vaccinated family.
Christina, our server, was so great. Awesome people skills and very accommodating. Great food. Bar is awesome, glass of wine was good, and martinis were bomb. 10/10 recommend
