Quick Thursday evening dinner for my fiancé and I. Started with the goat cheese fritters; they were divine, as usual. She ordered the spinach salad and added chicken which she enjoyed thoroughly. I ordered the half portion of the wedge salad. The bleu cheese dressing is bomb. For my entrée I had the steak frites cooked medium rare. The steak was cooked to perfection. The only two things I would nitpick was the temperature of the steak (warm, not hot) and done-ness of the fries. I have noticed the last couple times the fries were a tad undercooked. Might need to order them well done moving forward. Would highly recommend to a friend. Oh, the old fashioned and grocery are wonderful cocktails.

Loved the experience and the service was outstanding. Our server was jada and she was AMAZING! You could tell how much work ethic she has and how she cares about doing her job to it’s full potential. Our drinks were never empty, we were checked on an appropriate amount of times AND she can carry three plates! I was really impressed with jada and will be requesting her from now on.

The Exchange is always a great place to go for the ambiance, great drinks and good service. The food is usually pretty good even though I find the menu a bit limited. However, last night my friend's Mahi Mahi was undercooked and the rest of the party's food was luke warm at best. The manager was VERY proactive and took the mahi off the bill (after replacing it) and also comped our appetizer before we even ordered our meal just because they were a little slow getting it out. (we hadn't even noticed because we were busy talking) I will definitely be back, as this is one of our go to restaurants and I know what a difficult time the service industry is going through right now. Overall, was still a good experience as always.

The only complaint I have is that we had to keep our coats on the entire time due to it being so cold and we could feel the cold air every time someone came through the front door of the restaurant.

We are regulars at The Exchange and rarely ever have a complaint. The food is always outstanding, the drinks are great and the live music is always a nice bonus. This trip could have gone better. The food, drinks and music were all outstanding as usual. We had the steak frites and a surf and turf special. Both were excellent, as were the drinks. The live music was also outstanding, it was a great mix of old and new songs and the singer had a really beautiful voice.

Our service was a bit lacking. My husband went to the bar for his own drink refills since it had been over 20 minutes after getting our food before we were ever checked on. We didn’t have silverware and had to trouble another waitress to bring some just to begin eating. It wasn’t overly busy since it was 10:00 and there seemed to be plenty of staff for the number of guests. Just had a little bad luck this time around. We will be back, it is a favorite of ours. Will hope for a bit better service next time.

Steak good although asked for very rare. Still as a little over cooked. The pork chop and the gnocchi that my friends had look good and they stated that it was good. A few more wine choices would be great. My friends had the banana Foster's bread pudding and some other kind of monkey bread type stuff, both of which were disgusting.

We booked our dinner on Open Table noting it was a birthday celebration as we have enjoyed the restaurant menu many times before. No one mentioned our reason for joining them that evening for dinner. The food as always was outstanding, however our waiter arrived after we were seated for a while smelling of smoke and seemed disengaged in working. We asked about the local beer and he said “they are right behind you”… additionally he brought to females at our table their beers in cans without a glass or asking if they needed one. WHAT????
He really checked on us and was brief and just appeared to be putting his time in for his shift. We have not ever had this experience at the restaurant. The food from the appetizer to dinner was outstanding. I hate to have the evening to remembered but poor serve.
