Fabulous view. Wonderful setting and ambiance for birthday celebration. Food and drinks excellent.
Had to ask for a better table that was open, waitress was busy and took a while before she came over. When food arrived, which was a longer while , one plate was cold (which should have been hot) another plate (which should have been hot) was lukewarm. This was lunch, and I don’t think I would try dinner, maybe for a drink because of the view but the quality was not there just the reputation .
It has the most amazing views, if you can get them to seat you where you can see out the windows!
I made reservations for my husband’s birthday. It was windy and very cold that night and we were outside. The heaters weren’t working. I asked for a warm drink and evidently they don’t serve tea or coffee at the Exchange. Amazing view of the city.
Apparently they are on a limited Covid menu. The food, service and views are outstanding!
French fries are to died for!
Our waitress Hailey was amazing. Experience was great
Surprisingly only 1 dessert is offered and there was no hot coffee. Music was a little loud. Overall we enjoyed our time.
Had a wonderfully evening celebrating my anniversary with my husband. Thanks for a great and relaxing time for two worn out parents!!
I read the 90 minute reservation policy as I made the reservation, so I was expecting it. I also realize that Covid Restrictions may have been in place. We were warned by the waitress up front, really, I'm glad you are here but you must be gone in 90 minutes. This was not the weekend, it was a Thursday. We came at 4 pm when they opened so as to not impact the evening crowd. It was empty but we were asked to leave, probably about 15 minutes before we would have made the decision ourselves. It was pointed out that we had an extra 45 minutes, did I mention the place was empty! My last sip of wine was put in a to go cup/starbucks-classy! We ate, we drank. I was wondering if we had all ordered another round if they would have left us sit. We were a group of senior citizens, not the posh set.
The food was good, the sides looked great. the Margarita Pizza was not baked long enough, and became cold quickly.
Looking down on how beautiful Tellis is, has made our decision to go there next time.
This was our first visit. There was no one at the Ground Floor to direct us, but we found our way easily.
Staff was excellent - from reception to seating to server.
Food was very good. WE had a selection of Exchanges and 2 Large Plates.
As first-timers, we were delighted with the amount of food on both Exchanges and Plates, but ... we really did not need the Plates. The server might have given us a head up about the generous portions on the Exchanges. That would help us to order better.
We will return!
I had out town guest for the weekend and wanted to take them somewhere nice. We waited 20 min for server to come to the table, We finally got our appetizer 30 minutes later, we were going to order dinner and more drinks but decided to go elsewhere.
Great place really nice. Staff were great, food was delicious view and atmosphere was great
My favorite place to go out in Lancaster! Beautiful views and great food and drink.
With my parents for a night out as a Christmas gift to them, but we requested a table outside and when we arrived they said they could not sit us outside. I booked my reservation 3-4 weeks in advance snd it was very disappointing. We had dessert and drinks, but my mom and I wanted coffee, but they did not have coffee or tea. That seemed strange to me. I think this is the first bad review I have ever put on open table, but the whole experience was totally frustrating.
Our server was great and the food was good. According to COVID precautions, there was a 90 minute time limit which we had no problem with. With 10 minutes left on our time, we were given a “warning” that we would have to leave soon. Also not a problem. The irritating part came when we were leaving and noticed a couple who had arrived at the same time we did and were seated just before us still enjoying their (full) drinks. It looked like they had no intention of leaving any time soon. Not sure why the rules don’t apply equally to everyone.
We had an amazing server named Maurice. He was attentive, personable and provided outstanding service. The food was awesome! We had the crispy rock shrimp which was one of the best dishes I’ve ever had. We also had a pizza, I believe it was the spring Bianca and that was amazing as well. I would absolutely recommend this spot. The vibe was awesome as well.
Part of the draw is sitting outside but high winds made that impossible. I had the Margherita pizza. The crust was soggy not crisp. The tomato sauce was pink & runny, not red. It looked like watered down sauce from a jar. Not sure what the cheese was. If it was mozzarella, it was grated so finely that it lost the texture I associate with that cheese.
Won’t be back
Excellent service in a very nice and interesting restaurant. The menu is a bit limited but the food was very good.
Beautiful scenery all around.
Loved it! Great atmosphere. I would definitely recommend it to others.
The Exchange in Lancaster was an excellent venue to sit and relax. The food, while good, takes a long time to be cooked and come out, but was very enjoyable. Do not go there with the expectations of having a full meal....instead, the idea is to sit back, drink a little, take in the sights and sounds, and as an added extra bonus, enjoy the food.
Took my dad out for his big sixty-two. We all had a great time enjoying the pizza and cocktails. Definitely one of the best views in Lancaster city.
Loved the vibe and thought the price was very reasonable.
Best sunset! Great place to share with your girlfriends
Awesome food! Great views and ambience. Wait staff rushes you out. We were halfway through our drinks and someone asked us if we wanted to go bags. No one was behind us and we probably would have dropped another $100 on alcohol. Pretty dumb
Food was mediocre at best for the price. The atmosphere and view is worth every dollar.
Spectacular experience from start to finish. The outside rooftop is heated, the appetizers and drinks are exceptional, and the server was attentive and knowledgeable. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
Awesome views, great drinks! Service was good.
Will definitely be back
The food tasted good. The waitress was nice but it was overall the worst customer service I've had at a restaurant in a very long time, even during this last year of COVID. Just a terrible experience I'm sad to say, as if they were doing us a favor by letting us eat there. I guess when you are fully booked you don't have to care about customers.
It was really nice to go there and celebrate a 21st birthday party. The servers were very accommodating with balloons and bringing our own dessert. The food was great but the cocktail options were lacking. Realizing that they have a full bar and can create really any drink, it would have been nice to have a longer and more varied cocktail list with more than 5 options.
Fabulous vibe and location. Love the ever-changing menu so you can try new items every time you visit. Very fun place to celebrate a special day/evening.
The view and service was amazing. The food was ok. Drinks were great! The pizza was good, plenty for 2-3 to eat and reasonably priced. Loved the atmosphere, tables/chairs, and view. Menu is limited. Definately a cool place to check out.
Went to get pre dinner drinks for my husbands birthday. Made reservations for outdoors but was not able to sit outside due to the wind. Was slightly disappointed when we got seated indoors in the corner by the bathrooms and not near the view. I went to ask to get seated elsewhere but then all the tables were taken. Not a huge deal. Our server was fantastic. She was friendly, personable, and accommodating. Drinks took a little bit to come out to us. We went there an hour and a half before our dinner reservations but only had time to try one drink each. Overall, I would recommend this place to others.
the atmosphere is very quiet but very limited food menu.
Could have been more on menu, prices were a bit high. Otherwise good
Do to social distancing We were seated at a cocktail table right next to the hostess. It was like we where at a place while our table was getting ready. We could not order to much food as it would fit on the table. Jessica our waitress was great. We may give it a try again when restrictions are lowered.
Went here for a girl’s dinner with my daughter. We loved it! Our waitress was friendly & attentive, the food was fantastic as were the craft cocktails. We can’t wait to come back!
absolutely wonderful experience, can't wait to return!
Outstanding view, wonderful drinks, and delicious food.
Great food, phenomenal cocktails, and views. Will be back for sure.
