DJ was a bit loud and unnecessary since no one could dance with COVID. Food was great but service could have been improved. Had to flag down the waitress a few times. Overall, enjoyed it a lot. Good food and cool place.
Someone on the staff kept turning on and off lights, play with the settings after you're closed
Enjoyed a wonderful cocktail and several small plates that we shared. Everything was fantastic!!! First time visit for my son who is a real foodie - he commented that he will definitely come back.
Everything was good. Frog legs cooked perfectly, which is very difficult.
I love bao buns, spicy chicken, tequila Verde, the Beverly, and double double. It is also nice to have valet parking.
We like this establishment. Hope this place survives Covid
My husband and I have wanted to try this place for a while and we finally made it. We enjoyed the indoor/outdoor feel of the rooftop and thought it worked especially well with the COVID restrictions in place right now. The food was wonderful - we ordered a bunch of small plates and shared - my favorite way to eat dinner. We also thought it was a very nice touch that they brought us a complimentary dessert and some champagne since it was our anniversary:) Thank you!
Had the sea bass, which is exceptional. I highly recommend the octopus small plate. Cocktails are off the charts. I had a handcrafted Get Pitted (with mezcal). Service is good every time I go. KEX is our go-to when we want quality food in a nice atmosphere, and a sure-fire for taking family or friends visiting San Diego. And, it's always nice to walk off some of the calories in adjacent Little Italy.
Incredible tenth anniversary experience for me and my beau! The service was impeccable and I cannot get over how tasty everything was. Love the selection of seafood items like the grilled octopus, legendary spicy, crispy shrimp, seared hamachi, and salmon collar. Cocktails were fantastic as well. Get the Budino for dessert, even if you think you're full.
Maybe I have reviewed before, but reaffirm this is one of the best in SD. Innovative slightly aisian menu.
Great food, live music and service. Social distancing among customers was not enforced. A group of 8 people who were probably not from the same household were allowed to sit together without masks.
Amazing experience! Top notch service as always from our favorite restaurant in San Diego! Felt very safe with the new corona protocol
Every dish was absolutely Devine. Great atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.
Wonderful dessert! Budino is exceptional. All good was great. Service was great as well.

We really enjoyed Kettner Exchange. It was our first time visiting. The food was We were were surprised that they did not offer any of the name brand Tequilas or Gins and we had to go with another brand that we were not familiar with and not overly happy with. Overall great place and beautiful decor.
With the city slowly reopening I will be honest with you I was very hesitant to book this brunch reservation. However I was very pleased with the how precautionary the entire staff were and how friendly they were . I was also pleasantly surprised that when I made the reservation I asked for a "nice view if possible" as it was a birthday celebration . We were sat on their awesome rooftop inside a killer little private cabana. And our waitress, I believe Mackala , was just absolutely sweet and even brought out a birthday dessert with a candle.
Food was top notch! Thank you for the experience!!
Absolutely incredible experience. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary and loved our time!
Excellent food, drinks and service. Would definitely recommend!
Great service, ambiance and drinks/food! We will certainly be back!
Great food and ambiance
The food was delicious, but a lot of the options are salty and heavy. It’s hard to find a lighter option to mix it up. That being said everything, including drinks, tasted great, had great flavor, as big enough to share even for “small plates” , and was liked by both me and my fiancée.
Bartender Drew was amazing! He made sure everything was to our satisfaction observed when something wasn’t and replaced it with no questions asked. Staff was all very friendly and the ambiance was very warm and inviting
Service was even better than pre-covid closure; food and drinks were just as delicious as ever! Great first dinner choice out since quarantine started!
Awesome place. They made us feel safe.
Incredible food and service. We are at the bar
First girls night post Quarantine!
Food was subpar for the price. This would be a great place for drinks but not the food.
So glad this place is open! Had a wonderful dinner for my dads b day and it didn't disappoint...as usual.
Food was good but not great. Nothing really memorable. Service was ok. Staff was kind of dry. I put on the reservation that this was my wife and I 1 year anniversary and confirmed with the hostess upon check in. I also asked the host if the top deck had heaters in which she confirmed they did. It was a chilly night. We were seated at a tiny 2 person table in which I asked if any other table was available since it was our anniversary and we would like to sit next to each other. They said they would check and we were then told sorry this is the only table they have. We later asked to move to the table next to ours once the previous guests left. I asked our waitress if the heaters could be turned on to which she answered sorry i cant inconvenience customers at the bar instead of asking them if they would be ok with a heater pointed in our direction. We finished our meal and ordered 2 desserts which we both enjoyed. Nothing was done for our anniversary, nor did the waitress ever mention it. Sub par service and accomadations. With limited customers you would think they could be more on top of it.
