This is one of my favourite restaurants. I love the decor and staff... both are always welcoming. The food during this visit was DELICIOUS!! I work up the next morning craving the lamb appetizer I had. I can't wait to go back.

Great food, great service! Exile really has gone the extra mile with Covid19 protocols. It felt very safe, yet relaxed and comfortable. Love the music that is always just at the right volume to allow for conversation. I wish more downtown restaurants would follow suit.

A definite 'go to' favourite when planning an evening out!

Thank-you for making the accommodation to adjust our seating to the corner window. The front desk staff was new but very helpful and the food was delicious. Enjoyed the masks for the night as a great way to transition from my crazy week to a relaxing weekend! Thanks

I stayed at the JAG hotel and chose to eat here for breakfast. Highly recommend the fish cake and beans breakfast. It isn’t a “cheap” option for meals, but good quality, delicious food and excellent service. Would eat here again.

Menue has been changed. Go to This restaurant often. Did not enjoy the new menue changed. Seemed to be more brunch style as opposed to lunch.

After dining at several other establishments during the pandemic & being consistently disappointed with the service & food quality...Our experience at Exile was great & refreshing. Cleanliness & social distancing was a priority yet the service & food quality was not compromised. The prices were excellent & we thoroughly enjoyed our meal! Would definitely return & recommend to others.

The ambience of this place is excellent. It’s like no other place in St. John’s. If you are a burger fan you can get your burger done to your preferred level of cooking.

The whole experience at Exile was very enjoyable. The rock-and-roll decor, music and vibe of the place is great fun.The music is great, but not too loud. The scallop starter was tender and flavourful. The beef tenderloin entree was very tender, well seasoned on fluffy mashed potatoes. The pumpkin cheesecake I had was also very tasty. They also have a good selection of wines by-the-glass from around the world. Our server was friendly and efficient. There really is nothing I can fault, and I would definitely eat there again.

We booked online at the last minute. When we arrived 30 minutes later there was no table available but luckily we were able to sit at the bar. The waiter was attentive and the service timely. The starter "Korean Wings" were something new and delicious. The duck and breast were well prepared and tasty.

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!
