Great design and amazing food/drinks
Love the ambiance, great server, I feel the brunch menu could be expanded
We eat out a lot. It’s normal to have a great appetizer but terrible service, or great service and meh food, or great food but the place is so loud you can’t hear each other. But Kettner Exchange has it all goin’ on! Great food, comfortable atmosphere, wonderful service. Everything was exceptional. That is so rare. Highly recommend this place!
The service was excellent. I got the lamb, hanger steak, and spicy shrimp. The steak and spicy shrimp we’re both very good. I wasn’t a fan of the lamb. Lastly I got the Chunky Monkey for desert and it’s probably the best desert I’ve ever tasted, it was so good!!!
Very good experience-excellent service and friendly staff.
Just average food...cool place
Love this place. Great food in small dishes so you can try 3-4 items.
What a pleasant surprise... I did not even say a word and the staff surprised me with a birthday dessert! That told me they paid attention to our reservation details which indicated the occasion. Our server Ryan was so knowledgeable. He brought great energy to the table... excited to talk about ingredients and the elements of the varying cocktails. It was a pleasure to listen to his insight and feedback.
Thank you, Ryan! I recommend the cabanas, which I believe is first-come first-serve. Beautiful layout if you're willing to lounge with friends.
Reservation was @9:30. We arrived @9:08. Sat us closer to 10. Was out of chicken and a fish item.
However. Everyone was so sweet, service was great. The food is exceptional.
An amazing chef in the kitchen.
The venue is stunning.
I’d just say book an earlier table! Then it would be perfect.
We’ve been wanting to try this place for awhile. We found the food amazing great service and a fun ambiance. Small plates were perfect if you’re not starving. Valet was worth every penny.
Phenomenal small plates! For dessert we ordered the chunky monkey. Homemade banana ice cream put back in the peel. Awesome taste and presentation!
At first, my wife and I were unable to reserve a table for the time we wanted. However the service representative worked with us and informed us of a table that fit our schedule. Every aspect from customer service to table service to ambiance and the food was spectacular. Can’t wait to go back.
Perfect for our special occasion! We sat on the patio on a superb evening! Service was exceptional, and our waiter was on-point evening catching and immediately correcting a kitchen error.
Food was excellent, server was attentive, water glass was always full and the ambience and backdrop in he open air rooftop patio is hard to beat- highly recommended!
Amazing food, view and service! Loved the duck! The craft cocktails were very creative and delicious, the wine and cocktail list is ambitious.
Took 5 people to dinner there and EVERYONE loved the food. Had two legit foodies with me too, and was a bit nervous they would not like. Good work, Kettner Exchange..I will be back again for sure
Just moved to the area and trying out the restaurants near me. KEX stands out as a great dining experience with a wide variety of offerings and superb service.
Really great atmosphere! I was here for a date and we ordered 3 small plates. The kale salad was a great size to share. I ordered lamb noodles and it was perfect for me, the pork dumplings are very tiny .
Food and drinks were great! Spicy shrimp were my favorite and the chunky monkey dessert was to die for. They gave us complimentary champagne for our anniversary. We will be coming here again next time we are in SD.
Outstanding food and service. We will dine here again.
Service was excellent. We had a gin martini and old fashioned Thursday night cocktail specials and they were done just right.
Everyone is right about the kale salad- best I’ve ever had. I just wish they had a few more salad or veggie side dishes on the menu. The roasted chicken with kaffir lime and wild mushrooms, etc was so good and plenty to share and the lamb Szechuan noodle dish was amazing.
Everything was great. 4 people shared lots of small plates. Each one was excellent. Really nice atmosphere and service was attentive.
Kettner Exchange is an absolutely stunning visual that also packs a flavor punch. For my visit I stuck to small plates and split them. There was a dumpling dish I am blanking on the specifics of but it was PHENOMENAL and will hands down make me return to Kettner Exchange. The Duck Meatball was quite good, very tender with flavorful sauce. The Foie Gras Cubano also packs a nice hit of flavor with the foie lending to a luxurious texture. The Moroccan Braised Lamb won’t be something I reorder. The beverage program was very well handled.
What a perfect dinner! We both enjoyed very delicious specialty cocktails that tasted wonderful and looked beautiful. Taking in the beauty of the KX is a task on its own, as it is decorated so well. Our staff was prompt, but never intrusive. Noise level was moderate, never got so loud that we could not hear one another. The food was fantastic. I enjoyed the hanger steak, go figure the star on my plate turned out to be the potato salad! Crazy! My Friend REALLY enjoyed the porkchop and was pleasantly surprised with the delicious veggies on the plate as well. Location is great. After dinner we walked the neighborhood for a bit, as it was a pleasant evening. Great meal, looking forward to my next visit.
Love this place. The is always perfect. Can’t wait to go back
We had such a lovely evening here! The food was outstanding and our waitress, Abby, was exceptional - friendly, informative, fun, and very efficient! I would go back here often if I lived in the area! So glad we found it!
WOW, I took my boyfriend here for his 30th bday , We are both from outta town . I have to start off with the impeccable customer service...we were greeted by lovely hosts that helped accommodate what I requested ... Now the food....!!! That was some of the best food I've ever had. He had the pork chop & I had the steak lettuce wraps. The food was just the beginning... The drinks were absolutely amazing so fresh. The ambiance was amazing very Lively. All around perfect . Cannot wait to come back!
Good flavors and textures...well conceived and balanced Asian fusion dishes.
Great great great restaurant
Excellent food and service. Great recommendation from a local.
Service was FANTASTIC! Highly recommend. Will definitely visit again
Obsessed with the foie gras french toast and tuna pizza
Beautiful huge space, delicious food, great service.
Ate the duck meatball, the avocado toast with burrata, the thai roasted chicken. All yummy! Drinks were delicious too.
Kettner Exchange has become our favorite restaurant. Small plates are full of flavor. They keep the favorites on the menu and rotate others giving guests their favorites and something new and fresh.
Service has always been excellent. This time we meet Erica, who was delightful and engaging. We appreciate people who can engage in conversation, understand and can talk about the food, and are interesting. Thank you Erica.
Very nice place, very nice ambience. Surprised that the pre drinks out on the terrace had to be paid before we sat down at our table in the restaurant. Should be more simplier if they could offer one check. Our waitress was a little off, we ordered one starter and got a complete other one...
As always our experience was excellent. We had friends in from Denver and they plan to return.
Kettner exchange was underwhelming. The atmosphere was amazing for a dinner date with the nautical theme and low lighting. My husband and I went for a late dinner and ordered the Pig Mac, Thai Chicken and fish tacos. The Pig Mac was overly greasy and the meat was undercooked (bright pink coloring). The fish tacos were standard fare and not worth the listed price.
The Thai Chicken was delicious and was our final dish of the meal. I would recommend the chicken but would not decide to come back to this restaurant to eat again.
Enjoyed drinks in patio...enjoyed dj music ( we are old). Shared a cocktail table. Visited with a visitor to SD. Enjoyed for 2nd year a Mother’s Day dinner. Our young adult grandson joined us... he commented more than once he enjoyed the ambience,food and fun atmosphere. He grew up in Colorado and we enjoy taking him to new venues. Our server was good, enjoyed last yr’s male server more. Food was great again. We will return.
