Overall our service was very good. But one of waitresses... the one who actually served our food was abrupt and seemed like we put her out when we asked for more coffee... she was unpleasant! The greeter at the door and waitress that took our order and came to check on us after were both pleasant and professional. The food was served fresh, hot and was delicious

I dined there with my husband. I ordered beef tenderloin from the menu and specifically asked for medium/well done. When it was brought to my table it looked well/well done. Burnt crust. I had difficulty cutting into it and when I was finally able to eat a peace, it was very salty. I had to actually used my fork to drag the dry meat off the outer layer of crust to avoid the salt content and outer part of the meat. The waitress offered to take it back which would mean my husband would eat while I watched and vice versa. BTW, his meal was delicious.

Always an enjoyable experience at Exile!! It is our choice for brunch every Sunday! The ambience, the music (which is always so enjoyable), and of course the beautiful friendly staff who always make us feel so welcomed are just a few of the reasons why we love Exile! In our opinion, nobody has done a better job at perfecting the cleanliness and social distancing due to Covid-19 as well as Exile!

We have been there several times since it reopened during the pandemic. This visit was not good. We were escorted to our table which was surrounded by dirty tables with dirty dishes on them. We were waiting at this table watching two staff cleaning all the other dirty tables. Nobody even asked if we would like a coffee/tea during our 5-10 minute wait at the table. The lady who escorted us to the table should have offered tea or coffee while we were waiting. My wife and I didn't enjoy our meal at all. If this was our first visit we would have not stayed for breakfast and would not go there again. One staff member told us they had a large number of drop ins for breakfast and they were not prepared to deal with the extra workload. So much for taking my wife out for a birthday breakfast. It was a disaster.

We were seated within minutes of arrival. The waitress was very friendly and sparked up a easily conversation instantly. We placed out order within five minutes of being seated, waited maybe 15 minutes until we had our food. The staff were wearing PPE which made us feel very safe. Exile was very clean and noticeably in full force of safety policies. The full size mannequins dressed including hair and some with mask were a funny touch to make guest feel safe. Exile has always been my favourite restaurant for special occasions. Definitely in my top three restaurants in St. John’s. Extremely recommend for tourists and locals. Continue to support locally!!
