Great atmosphere, staff, food and drinks with reasonable prices. Stayed at the hotel and a perfect place to dine. First time I could easily hear and enjoy the great music but could also hear my wife talk without shouting like other loud restaurants. We’ll be...back, LOVED the scallops appy, and paella main!More

We arrived without a reservation and glad that the staff were able to accommodate us sooner than they originally anticipated. We had a variety of food and everyone was happy with their selection. I had the Beuno Burger which is a feature for the local...Burger and Beer festival this month. The burger was cooked right however all I could taste was the bbq or grill taste. The burger toppings of Chili roasted pico de gallo, avocado mayo, lettuce, crispy jalapenos, provolone cheese were there but overwhelmed by the cooking of the burger. I was really disappointed and would not recommend it!More

Music was great and the volume was pleasant. Service was slow. Eggs Benedict with salmon was good. More effort could have gone into the plating and presentation of the potatoes that came with the dish. All the was food was unfortunately cold. They need to...work on getting food out to customers sooner. The jag burger my son ordered was burnt - they tried to hide the burnt part. Overall I still like the place but feel they need to put more effort into consistently delivering quality food and service to to customers.More

Loudest restaurant in the city. The staff is so used to having customers ask to turn down the music management has actually put it on the menu that they can’t. PUT IT ON THE MENU. This means “We have heard you say you want the...music lower and don’t care.” Talk about arrogance. Everything else is great but I like to talk during a meal and not shout. Won’t be back.More

Friends and I go to Exile every Wednesday for drinks and dinner and have been doing so since June 2018. We have the corner booth that, unless we call to cancel, is waiting for us. This gem of a restaurant in a funky boutique hotel...never disappoints. From cocktails that the servers know by heart what each of us drink and how we like our drinks, to the fabulous food that along with a great menu always has daily features. Tonight I had best meal ever there featuring fresh halibut and vegetables. Simple yet brilliant flavours. The fish was perfectly seared and not overdone. We are treated like family there and I would and do recommend this restaurant to anybody.More
