We love come here. Delicious food. My only annoyance was our table. We booked a reservation in advance as we were having business partners for dinner. We got to the restaurant and we’re seated immediately. Disappointingly we were sat at a partial outdoor table in the evening in the middle of July. When we asked for an inside table which is what we thought we were getting though making a reservation we were told that’s not possible because those tables had… reservations. We brought up that we also had a reservation and we were pretty much give the “too bad.” If you don’t like dining when you’re sweating trying to enjoy a meal and make good connections then you won’t see a problem here. Again we love this restaurant and will continue to return. It’s in our top 5 of Lousiville metro restaurants. My point would be that if you want a specific area or the restaurant you may want to call ahead in addition to making a reservation.

As usual, the food and service were outstanding. Sadly, the front desk/reception area was in disarray. The hostesses were disorganized and seemed put upon, although I don't know why. We arrived right on time for our 7:00pm reservation and were made to wait for about 15 minutes before we were seated. After that, everything was wonderful...

The guitar player overwhelmed the speakers; you were unable to have a conversation even outside as far away as we sat. We love this restaurant but please have music where everyone can still have a conversation.

As always, the food was great. Our server, Collin, was great as well! However, the music was SO LOUD that we had to basically yell across the table to have a conversation with our friends. We could barely hear them either. The speaker for the musician was turned up way too loud. The guy was very talented but we could not enjoy our dinner because of the volume.

I had reservations for 6 for lunch. I called at 11am because 2 in my party notified they could not make it. No problem when I called. The other 2 in my party brought a third person and so it was now 5 people. No problem at all. Our waiter was very attentive and gracious. The food was awesome. Overall, a great experience. Our guests were from Chicago and they requested to visit The Exchange! Did not disappoint!!

Our appetizer and entree's were excellent and were brought to us amazingly quick. I highly recommend the gnocchi and the shrimp & grits. The old fashioned that I had was one of the best prepared that I've had in a long time, which is why I ordered another. Our server was very attentive and courteous and she made sure that our needs were being taken care of.

DeSean was our waiter and was absolutely perfect. Was there when we needed and allowed us to enjoy our meal out. The food was hot and tasty and offering is different than so many other restaurants. Limited wine selection but was able to find one they met our taste needs for this evening

Great service. Appetizers (pretzels and the most amazing beer cheese and short ribs over tots) were AMAZING! My bad I got fish and chips and just have never been a fan of beer batter so my poor selection. Very nice and will go back soon. Beer selection very good👍👍👍

Restaurant seating seems too big for what their kitchen and bar can handle. We waited an hour for our food and drinks bc the kitchen and bar were backed up. This was on a Monday Night.

All of the outdoor seating areas are great but it was really hot so we ate indoors. It’s a casual atmosphere. The drinks and food were all very, very good. More of a fun place for a group of friends than for a romantic date.

Been there many times always great. Service, food and drinks. This time we ate in the room next to the street. Ate in there before was loud but no biggie. This time seemed even more, I guess the way the room is made. Really hard to talk to people setting right across from you. That is the only turnoff.

Wedding anniversary - went on June 6th. No vegan options (no meat or dairy) on the menu will stop any future visits. Great waitress. Wine was great but $15 for a very small amount. Nice atmosphere.

Went for date night. Wife got the Chop and I had the special Nashville Hot Chicken Tacos. Wife loved her meal. Tacos were excellent but only 2 and the side of corn tasted like canned corn heated up. Next time will get the full Nashville Hot Chicken as it was delicious and had a side of Mac and cheese (didn’t see or try).

Water issues, they had to buy bottle water due to non drinking tap water alert. Certain supplies were out: olives, vodka. Salmon salad disappointment. Would try again.
