I had a bad experience tonight. They have my table away when I had a reservation and made us wait 30 minutes before seating us. Our food took a very long time to come out and when it did, it was cold. Our waitress forgot to put one of our drinks on the check and came back, after we had already paid, and made us open the tab back up to pay again. I have been here several times before and had great experiences. Just not a great one this tome.

Food was excellent-well prepared and good presentation.
The restaurant was cold. We almost put our jackets back on. It was cold last time we went too.
Way too pricey!!
The atmosphere was nice but not a good value. We likely won't go back.

We loved our dining experience. We had a group of 4 and all us us want to return. Our server was excellent. The food was creative, delicious and locally purchased. Nothing pretentious here-just quality food, great atmosphere, friendly staff and easy to get to from Louisville.

No problem with taste or service but the serving size was pathetic! 4 small scallops and a small serving of rice which barely filled a third of a small dinner plate was not what I expected for $26.00. Very disappointed!

Food was terrific as usual. The goat cheese fritters are a must, I could eat a whole order myself. We were seated in the front section, which is an outdoor seating area that is closed off during the winter. While I love sitting out there in the summer, it was drafty and cold, and there were no other tables for us. Our server tried to be attentive but had too many tables I think, we had to ask a couple of times for silverware, and an order of brussels sprouts (also delish) got forgotten. Not all was lost, I took them home, but it didn't seem like the usual top-notch service you get at the Exchange. My out-of-town colleagues enjoyed themselves, but I was disappointed as this was my recommendation and I didn't feel the experience was typical.

The food at The Exchange is OUTSTANDING! We shared the goat cheese appetizers and they are amazing! For dinner, I had the salmon (which was nice and flaky) with risotto and green beans and it had a great flavor. Our service was slow for a Saturday night and they weren't especially busy when we arrived. Other than it taking a little longer for dinner, I would recommend eating here anytime; their food is phenomenal.

Absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in New Albany! I've been here numerous times, and the service & food are always on point. They also have the BEST Old Fashioned around! Location is perfect, and the new(ish) outdoor patio is a great addition to an already wonderful establishment. I've brought many of my out-of-town family & friends here as well, and I've never had one person tell me anything other than "awesome"! Highly recommend!

An easy place to take your family as there is something on the menu to please anyone. The beer roasted chicken was juicy and delicious. The burgers are tasty and served on a pretzel bun with or without some yummy toppings. The steak and frites are presented in a novel way and a can't go wrong entree. The pork chop and the fish sandwich were big hits with our party as well. Oh yeah, the Parmesan and garlic frites are killer!

Second visit just as good as the first. Food is awesome. My only complaint is the noise. Why do restaurants remove all fabric that could absorb some noise? I know you want us to leave so you can turn the tables, but if we could actually hear one another we would stay and continue ordering.

Great experience every time we are here, love the Steak Frites. Usually get the beer cheese for appetizer which is excellent and the last couple times we have gotten "The Brownie" for dessert and the caramel ice-cream goes perfect with the brownie.

The staff was courteous. The food was ok but nothing special and very pricey. It was nearly impossible to visit with our friends because it was INCREDIBLY loud. This restaurant had been highly recommended and, frankly, we were very disappointed.

Got together with friends before the Louisville Crashers concert at the New Albany Amphitheater. Food was good and the service was very good. At the time of day we were there, not many people were in the restaurant. The place will certainly be loud when the restaurant is full. We selected food from the afternoon menu; not an abundance of selections but the food was good. The fish was a big hit at our table. Will definitely return.
