    We went for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon with a party of 8. We were seated quickly and our server was very attentive. The atmosphere is casual but unique. The food is not your average bar food. It’s top notch! Delicious flavor and so many great flavors it was hard to choose. The garlic Parmesan fries are a must!

    The hospitality was amazing. The service was very slow. 20 minutes to get the appetizer and 35 minutes additional to get the two sandwiches we ordered. Arrived at 12:15 for my reservation and left at 2:10pm (when we ordered quickly at first). Food quality was good, but not as good as the previous visits. It was moms first trip (Mothers Day) and she said she didn’t want to come back again.

    Went here after a full day at Churchill Downs. We got the braised pork belly appetizer. Then four of us got four different entrees which were all cleaned up -- Nashville hot chicken, wedge salad, steak frites, and GOAT burger. Service was solid. Drink menu was lacking. Overall good experience.

    Food is off the charts at this place. I don't think I've ever had anything I did not love. They accommodated a last second addition to your party, and were OK when one of our party arrived very late. Overall A+

    The Betty White Delight cocktail, recommended by our server, was delicious! The G.O.A.T. Burger was also very good. Had a small issue with the fries, but Steven (I believe) took care of it for us. All in all, a good first time here and we'll likely return.

    Have been going to the Exchange since it opened. This was by far the worse experience. Wednesday 4-13 service was slow, food wait was long and when it came the frites were cold and the hamburger barely warm. Not a good meal. Hope they can get their issues fixed.

    Maybe my expectations were too high considering The Exchange has always been at the top of to go list of favorites places to eat, but I was disappointed with the breakfasts my friend and I ordered. The menu for breakfast and brunch looks and sounds great, however, the quality of the food was unfortunately not so great. The grain bowl she ordered was a lot of farro and a little eggs and veggies, and for $15 she shouldn’t have left half a bowl uneaten. My breakfast platter was average, the bacon was very fatty, the bowl of fruit contained all strawberries and blueberries (most of the strawberries were brown), the scrambled eggs weren’t seasoned, but the avocado toast was freshly made and good. The coffee was hot and tasty, and my friend’s Coco Loco cold brew was very good. Our server was super sweet, attentive , and answered all our questions. Maybe it was just a bad day in the kitchen, so I will give it another go in the future since we have always had great dinners and drinks at The Exchange.
