I eat at Exile often, a lovely restaurant. This time around, the food was not well prepared, which was disappointing. There have been service hiccups in the past, but overall this is a lovely spot for a meal.

It was great, however I didn’t like my seating much sooner prefer table and chairs, not the booth like seating. Don’t find it comfortable.

The food was absolutely the best in the city, however 3 scallops cost $18 which I thought was crazy lol. Other then that I would highly recommend this spot. Awesome music playing and always local singers to be seen.

We appeared to arrive between a shift change or maybe while one server was on a break. It caused a bit of a wait for drinks and utensils but was manageable. The food however was fabulous. Most definitely did not disappoint. We were unaware they closed so early on a Saturday night so we had to cut our evening short.

My only issue was that we felt rushed by the waitress who told us as we were about to order that the table was booked after us. Yet the service was relatively slow, which I didn’t mind. We felt rushed to order.

Highly recommend this dining experience. The food was amazing and the atmosphere delightful. The greatest attribute which made our time there more ejoyable was the staff. Jennifer our server was so nice and went that extra to make our night memorable...just a gem. Bravo Exile...Bravo

Amazing experience at Exile. The food and service was superb and the ambience was great. We had the brussel sprouts and scallops for appetizer and the beef tenderloin and cod for the mains. Great portion sizes and very flavourful.

We had a reservation made a week in advance and was really excited as were were celebrating. Appetizers and drinks were good. Service was slow but apologetic. Our water wasn’t refilled once while waiting or eating. We also noticed all other tables had water carafes when we did not. We waited 2 hours for our food, and when we got it, it was incorrect. Finally the right food was brought out and we couldn’t finish it because it tasted off. We paid shortly after, choosing to skip desert. Not sure our experience was the way it was because we were being kind and understanding to the wait staff but it seemed like we got the short end of the stick compared to how everyone else was treated in the restaurant. For $150, we expected a better experience.

I had heard great things about Exile so I decided to book it for a date night. We were seated quickly at a nice table, but after that everything went down hill. We had to wait 20 minutes just to get some water, then another 20 before we got our first drink. I wasn’t sure if the restaurant gave you bread to snack on, it seemed like other tables had it so if they did our server didn’t offer any to us (not a huge deal) but it just seemed like an awfully long wait for everything for a restaurant that wasn’t all that busy. Once we got our food (which was tasty) we put in for some more wine and a whiskey…These drinks never did show up, the waitress never checked on us once to see how the food was, or if we needed more water. We were completely finished eating and just waiting for 30 minutes with nothing to drink, and no sign of our waitress. We finally flagged down another waitress and told her what had happened and to just cancel the drink order and asked for the cheque. She offered to get us dessert but we weren’t interested in waiting around any longer. All in all the food was good but service we had was terrible… not the date night we were hoping for.

Great for relaxed dining. They were quite busy and it seemed understaffed. However the service was good. If you were in a rush it would have been problematic.

Fantastic! Service from William was impeccable and the smoked salmon mousse and moose lasagna was excellent! Booked this restaurant specifically for the moose lasagna and it did not disappoint

The breakfast is also great! Fish cake and baked beans !

Found a hair embedded in the breading on the chicken . Tried to pull it out to continue eating as good was delicious, however it was cooked into it and could only get half the hair out. Told the waitress, she saw the hair pulled out on the napkin and the other half still in the chicken. She apologized and charged full price.
In my experience, Foreign object found in food =automatic refund of that item.
Everything else was great though! Food is always delicious even with the extra hair! Ha ha
