Unfortunately that’s where the positives end. We ordered these two cocktails showed below and they were just mediocre. The one was a mezcal and the other one is a spicy tequila. For costing almost $20 each they should’ve had a lot more flavor. For entrées we ordered truffle and crab fries, shrimp skewers and fried Halloumi cheese. All three of these dishes were saturated in salt. The Halloumi cheese had a weird spongy texture. The best part of the meal were the espresso martinis and watching the sunset. I recommend the exchange for cocktails and ambience but I would forgo the food.

He forgot one of our orders and submitted too late and we had to carry it out. He never checked on us even though the restaurant was not crowded. The ice cream dessert sat on the serving counter before it was served and the ice cream had melted. A very disappointing experience

Next visit will allow more time to relax and thoroughly enjoy

The outside was closed because it had rained a little bit earlier in the day, so that was a bit of a letdown. We ordered some drinks that were awful, one being the bananas foster drink and one was the root beer. So gross. I asked if they could make something with mint, the server informed us they didn't have anything mint. I asked if they had anything else with banana liquor and was told they could only make the drink listed on the menu. I was under the impression and thought I remember reading that they could make other drinks that weren't on the menu. Guess I was wrong. So we decided to switch to beer....but no Stella Artois, one of the only draft beer that we recognized the name of. Just disappointing for an expensive place. Definitely not worth it. Also, our plan was to get the dessert since I had seen great reviews of it on tiktok, but because it was after 9, we couldn't order it. Couldn't even make an exception for my husband's birthday since the kitchen was still open?! Our reservation was for 9...maybe if we didn't have to wait for our table, we would have been there in time to order it. I also found our server to a bit unfriendly and overall very easily annoyed. *I gave the food a 5 star, but we didn't order anything. I just wasn't allowed to leave it blank and continue on with the review. Would not recommend this place.

I highly recommend this place to anyone looking to get a drink, meeting with friends, or to just enjoy a nice meal in the heart of Lancaster. Thanks to the amazing staff for an enjoyable start to the weekend.

Just wonderful in every way! The server was warm and friendly , the ambiance was cozy on a cold night and it’s nice to be somewhere with friends where the music is soft so we can have good conversations with each other. We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Normally I sit at the bar and the service is always good. This time I got a table and found that the service was not as good. Food was delivered by somebody else. We were almost done eating before she came back to check on drinks. Also took forever to get the check. I'll probably stick with sitting at the bar in future.

We were seated quickly with our reservation which was great as we had some time between the wedding and reception. We were given a carafe of cold water right away. We enjoyed a Korean bbq pizza and a Margherita pizza as well as some drinks. The brown butter sage old fashioned and red sangria were delicious. They have linen napkins and real plates which gave it a less casual feel but the rooftop breeze and modern seating really added a warm and relaxing feel.

Of course menu selection was paired down, which is expected, given where we are. We found the pizza, although delicious, to be undercooked on the crust, a little too doughy. The salmon tartar was quite mushy and sat on a bed of mushy pickles. The presentation was nice, however, the preparation of the dish didn’t warrant the $20 price tag it was given. We did prefer an entree, asking for an item to be absent on the plate. The entree came without our omission being heeded. Drinks were priced and executed in a respectable manner, ambiance was to be expected based on our past times at The Exchange. I did notice the clientele was quite a fluid conglomeration of sorts. I’m not sure if it’s the season, or the restaurant’s goal to gain financially at any cost. For the price of service, I would have expected a dress code at least; not sweatpants, camouflage and ripped jeans. This has been billed as a moderate to upper level trendy place in our city, but they are missing the mark on the clientele allowed in the space. To justify the experience this should be addressed. Our service and waitress was great, with just one spot of a lull in waiting for our check. She was nice and very presentable. We visit many places in and around our city, The Exchange is a good place in my opinion, but they are approaching a plateau in terms of plate execution and price point presently. Many sit down spots in the city can justify their price for presentation and execution; those are far and above The Exchange. Sure there is ambience because it is the highest restaurant point in the city, but that novelty can only get you so far. Have great food, drinks, ambience all at a warranted and competitive price then you will attract that cross section of young to middle aged professionals and trend setters that this restaurant deserves. We would go for drinks and view but not food.
