What a delightful experience! Awesome vibe and location, excellent, professional and friendly service and most importantly - the food was divine! I can't wait to go back
Loved everything from the food to the atmosphere to the service. Def a great find. And very recommendable. Great experience.
My family and I loved our dinner!! Thanks again
A fun place to go. The small bites were varied and excellent. In particular the kale salad, lamb belly, and hamachi.
Food was good, menu was a bit strange. Very pricey. Sorry, will not return.
We only went for appetizers and drinks all three appetizers were equally delicious! I loved the knowledge of the waiter and pairing our drinks with each appetizer we ordered. I definitely want to go back for a full meal. We sat downstairs which was nice and intimate for the birthday dinner I was there for, but can't wait to go back and sit upstairs!
Started out great until out waiter had a large party to take care of. Kind of forgot about us
Such a fantastic restaurant! My family and I drive all the way from Carlsbad to eat here. Every single experience we've had here has been perfect!!
Our server was excellent the singer on Wednesday night was delightful.
Very good food and good service, only negative thing is they didn’t tell us that there was a 100 buck minimum until we were trying to pay and leave. Should have been more clear
Kettner Exchange was the perfect hip spot for a bachelorette dinner. Delicious cocktails and fun ambience really made it a wonderful experience. The food is creative and yummy, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend.
Love the service and food. Definitely going back.
Great food, service could be a bit better. But ambiance and food was outstanding.
Fabulous service, chef was amazing! Bar tender made me a custom delicious cocktail. Gorgeous building with a view! Loved it all!
First time visiting KEX. I had just got off work and we showed up for a 930 reservation in the main dining area but the hostess was very confused on where to put us because the kitchen was closing at 10. She recommended we order very quickly but we couldn't order entrees anymore. That was disappointing because I had worked all day and my girl and I were starving. We were left having to find our own waitress and she was forced to ask the kitchen to make us food. Just a let down for a hyped up place I’d wanted to visit for a while. Great drinks and atmosphere, not loud at all.
Amazing atmosphere and even better food/ wait staff. The Shashimi, avocado toast, Spicy tuna tacos, and Oreo ice cream were some of my favorites! - Caitlin
Great evening of sharing the small plates. Menu covered a large variety of options to suit most anyone's palette. Food was well prepared and presented, great spot!
Our group had cocktails and small plates. Our server was helpful in advising us how many dishes to order and he was spot on. We ordered 9 small plates for the 4 of us. We were happy with every dish we ordered. The food was interesting and delicious. Some of the combinations were delightfully original. We barely had room for dessert, but managed to share one between us. We all agreed that another visit is in order.
Loved the set up of the outside patio. The overall décor was really nice.
Amazing food every time!!!
do not go anywhere else for Brunch! fabulous....
Kettner Exchange was a great dining experience! It had great ambiance and the food was outstanding. We ordered the kale salad, spicy shrimp, Szechuan noodles and tuna tacos. Everything was amazing and I would highly recommend each item. I will definitely go back!
Kettner Exchange is always special. We have never been disappointed with the quality and presentation of the food. The menu changes and is always loaded with great choices.
Great food and service!
Recommend the avacado toast on the brunch menu along with the galleger refreshing drink. Cheers 🥂
Great ambiance, delicious drinks, excellent service and reasonably priced tapas style food. Only complaint is that there are only two unisex single-person bathrooms downstairs so the line is excessive.
It was terrific! The food was amazing
Didn’t foreclose the wine pairing price upon reserving and the menu made it sound included. Gratuity was added even though there was nothing on menu that said that AND the server let me double tip on a $300 tab. Plus I paid cash so I can’t get a refund. I handpicked this place out of ALL the options in San Diego for our trip. Big mistake. I paid for the name and some decent wine
Updated my review due to a great follow up by the GM
The prix fixe valentines menu ranked up there with vegas level (spago, mix, etc) tasting menus. Excellent food without the pretentious atmosphere.
We love this restaurant. The food is consistently prepared well and delicious. I am always impressed with Megan, she served us this night, who is always so friendly and takes time to discuss menu and wine recommendations. The big eye tuna pizza is always a must with us as is the budino. Highly recommend.
Great food. Great drinks. Worth the dollars.... amazing venue. Flavors and menu are unique and phenomenal.
The food and ambience was great. The service was just fair. Our waiter forgot to bring our drinks and we had to flag someone to remind them that we had ordered drinks. Our waiter didn’t check on us at all and then we had filag him to get our check.
Decor was stunning. Service and kitchen disconnected. Cocktail was balanced and yummy. Room to develop and grow.
great service from erika. always a fun time at the exchange
Outstanding food! Unique San Diego experience....a notch above trendy and just a tad under luxurious. Loved the menu...the food...the rooftop lounge bar and garden. Cannot wait to go back. Recommend highly!
Music was too loud. Had to raise my voice to converse at my table. Food and service were great.
Great selection of foods and beverage. Wish all of the menu items listed critical ingredients. Our server had to tell us that the pork wontons included shrimp and she forgot to tell us that a duck meatball included pork. Ended up causes some minor kerfluffle when we had to return a dish from a member of the party who doesn't eat pork! Put all the items in the description.
Otherwise, food was delicious, champagne was great and our server was very gracious. will go again!
Loved the atmosphere. The food was exceptional and the service outstanding. To top it off wonderful live jazz music in the evening.
Very good meal. Creative food well executed. No revolution here, but really tasty enjoyable meal.
Nice atmosphere with good service. The menu is not huge, but the items on the menu are spicy and very good.
