One of the city’s hidden gems, I’ve been eating there since the restaurant originally opened and would recommend for any event, lunch, brunch and dinner.

I’ve now been to Exile 5 times. Three times were good or better, but twice the food was excessively salty. My first time there, I ordered the cod dish that was on the menu at the time, and I swear I was served unrinsed salt cod. I informed the server that the fish was inedible as served and requested that she have the chef/cook sample a portion to understand what he/she was preparing. I was assured that I would not be charged for the dish, but no effort was made to rectify the problem for the future. This last time dining there, we ordered the sun dried tomato pasta with chicken substituted for shrimp due to an allergy of my sons’ as well as the steelhead trout tartare, both of which were extremely salty. At my sons’ request, we said nothing at the table, but took over 80 % of each dish home...then threw them in the garbage the next morning. Not good value when you consider the pasta was $30 plus tax and tip and the trout was $15 plus the same and we ate less than one quarter of each. Literally about $50 in the garbage and we were still hungry when we left. At least I know where to go if I’m ever seriously craving salt! Otherwise I will take my appetite and business elsewhere

The reason I rated my meal on the low side is that it came with a mixture like poutine, ie., chips, dressing, onions & gravy but, while the fish accompaniment was hot, the stodge was cold. Poor coordination in the kitchen I suspect.

Had the moose goulash. Very good. Didn't finish it all so took it home for lunch next day. Even better. The staff are the very best anywhere!!
Small detail - I am always looking for a good salad! But that's me

mussels were great. ribs were terrible...3 large bones on my plate with no meat on them and on top of puree sweet potato that tasted like baby food and the slaw was tasteless. the plate of food looked like something from the flintstones. service was sub par and waitress forgot most of our requests. i was disappointed.

Great rock n' roll concept with a wonderful sound system but hit and miss on the food and a touch pricey. I got the special Udon dish and it was an artlessly prepared mishmash of uncoordinated (albeit tasty) bits! SO got the Cod and it arrived cold and soggy but they, without hesitation, took it off the bill. It took 45 minutes or so to get our food as the kitchen needed to push out food for a wedding happening elsewhere in the hotel. Oh yeah, I should have been informed of the cost of the special udon dish as as it turned out to be a slightly eye-watering $39. Wait staff were pleasant enough but seemed a touch bedraggled and, at best, mechanical in their service.

I love this restaurant - go there at least once a month. BUT the food has gone downhill. The salad is limp lettuce with a heavy sauce and granola! The pasta is tomato soup - SAD. Love the service. Love the room. Love the wine. But I wish the food would improve. It was great!!! Please get a chef or a cook. All the gorgeous pictures and chairs will not compensate for the poor food

Waitress was defensive when we asked for service, then our food was delayed and cold when it was served. Typically this restaurant is great. I attribute the experience to the particular waitress. Everyone else at the other tables (who were incidentally served very quickly) seemed quite pleased.

We were pleasantly surprised. The food was delicious and the prices were very fair, and the quantities of food was just right. Some reviews said the service was slow, but good food takes time to prepare and if a restuarant is good it tends to be busy for the staff. All in all we enjoyed ourselves and would go back again.

Filet dinner was SO salty that we could barely choke it down, everything else was mush and we only ate the meat because we paid 45$ a plate for it and were starved. Dessert was ok but the service was very blah, not attentive and unenthusiastic. I stated on our reservation that it was a specifically special occaision in hopes that we would get a “congratulations” mentioned and it was not acknowledged at all. Way over priced meal that actually tasted terrible, totally disappointed.
