    Tried Exile for the first time last night - a Monday evening. It was without doubt the best dining experience I have had in St John’s, and absolutely up there with my experiences at 1-3 Michelin star restaurants around the world. The food was incredible and our server Jennifer was truly outstanding. Thank you for my favourite ever date night.

    Great food and always a very nice experience the only critique I would have is that it was a little chilly inside and the staff had no ability to adjust the heat. Otherwise a great experience just dress warm!

    Lovely experience! First of all, the hotel provides valet parking… game changer. But the hotel restaurant gets a big two thumbs up for a great menu, both food and drink. My friends and I were seated and served by a lovely young lady who saw to our needs in a polite yet friendly manner. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was so nice. Great music playing, not too loud, and the decor is excellent too. My only complaint would be that the seating for the tables located along the walls was a little too soft; I think a firmer seat would be more comfortable for dining. Other than that, we had a lovely time and would recommend the Exile restaurant to anyone who wants a wonderful meal at comparable prices to any good restaurant out there.

    Excellent venue and wonderful staff. Usually great food, but my main was not up to usual standards. Still plan on returning based on previous visits, and because it’s one of the most authentic experiences available in St John’s.

    Second time here. Nice selection of meat and fish mains, well prepared and with an original touch on each dish. The service was great, and she surprised us with a bit of chocolate dessert in honour of a birthday. Nice music (selection of 60's rock and blues) in the background, but not overwhelming.
