Outstanding view, wonderful drinks, and delicious food.
Great food, phenomenal cocktails, and views. Will be back for sure.
Had a lovely anniversary experience with complimentary champagne. Highly recommend
My boyfriend and I enjoyed a wonderful Valentine’s Day as our first experience at The Exchange. The Brussel sprouts were amazing, the margarita pizza delicious, and the s’mores dessert so tasty! Our server, Jessica, was so awesome!
Staff is not friendly and gives a bit of attitude. Menu is nothing impressive and is very scarce. We went for lunch and they were already out if what seemed to be the only thing eye catching on menu. We ended up leaving but not before the waiter told us that the appetizer was already put in . Rather than apologizing for the bad experience we were forced to pay it and take it to go. The restaurant is nice with a nice view but it is more of a lounge. No dining tables. Also expect to feel pushed to buying a drink cause they wont stop asking.
All in all would not recommend to anyone unless you want a good photo op
My only complaint is that they hurried us out. I understand that they are trying to accommodate as many people as possible during Covid but felt a little rushed. Waitress couldn’t have been nicer about it and I understand but bear in mind the clock is running from moment you sit down
The waitress Jess was amazing!!! Thank you so much for everything!
Everything was fabulous except that my husband’s meal came out long after everyone else was served.
The rooftop view is stunning restaurant is unbelievable. A very small menu but very well done. Excellent choice of cocktails and wines.
Simply fantastic. I took my girlfriend here for her birthday lunch. We had originally reserved an outside table for safety reasons, but it was exceptionally cold and windy, but even sitting inside, there is plenty of space to spread out and not feel unsafe. The food was exceptional. We started with a brussel sprouts app, with bacon and candied pecans which was phenomenal. She ordered the hot honey fried chicken plate and loved it. I had pasta alla vodka and it was simply perfect. To boot, they brought out a wood fired s’mores pizza with a candle for her birthday. That dessert is heaven on earth. You won’t regret dining here.
Everything was decent, they just need to maintain a solid level of consistency and no resting on laurels. As an example, the doorman needs to be a bit more attentive, and not respond as he’s doing me a favor!
it was very good with a great ambiance. the pickled chicken nuggets were to die for
The food is ungodly over priced for how bland and tasteless it was. If you want a place to go for drinks which they have like 10 drinks on the menu. Basically if you just want a rooftop bar go there that’s about it.
My new favorite place! It was an amazing experience from the minute we walked in... to the minute we left. When booking, we informed them it was our wedding anniversary not thinking much of it. The wait from check in was under 2 minutes, everything was clean, socially distanced and sanitizing stations every few feet. Love that they have the touch less menus as well. We were offered indoor & outdoor seating... we chose outdoor and we so glad we did! The ambiance was chill and we were so warm with all the outdoor heaters and tabletops. Our waitress gave us complimentary champagne and wished us a happy anniversary. The drinks were great and quickly made. The food was delightful and quickly brought out.
Definitely recommend to everyone and definitely coming back again
The views and drinks were great. Our food was severely undercooked
Great place to dine in. Very welcoming and relaxed atmosphere
Amazing food, drinks, and service!!
It was wonderful! A bit difficult at first to find, because the address takes you to the main Marriott entrance.
It was a nice atmosphere. The food was good. The view from the rooftop were awesome. The prices were very fair. I would recommend it.
One of the nicest and most unique places to spend a nice evening in Lancaster! Despite the cool and cloudy weather, my date and I really enjoyed ourselves here for dinner! The setting with its great views is unlike any other in town and the fresh air and fire tables made for a very fun experience. The food and drinks were all excellent and we'll definitely be back, hopefully on a night to catch a great sunset!
Great place to celebrate a special occasion. We enjoyed the view of the setting sun over Lancaster with awesome cocktails and some lite fare. While the air was cool, the outdoor fireplaces provided a cozy atmosphere as the sunset ensued.
Our table shared the spicy salami pie and fries with cocktails: Perfect Pear, Winter Sangria, and the Notorious F.I G. (and a Hegemony Stout).
We recommend all of it and would do this again.
We had a great meal and waitress!
Loved it just wasnt notified that my reservation time was lessened by 45 mins
Safe, fast service plus great food, reasonable prices and an unbeatable view made the night a huge hit!
Beautiful atmosphere. As expected it was a little chilly but the heaters were on and it was wonderful to go to a place that we felt safe from the pandemic and in compliance with the governor's restrictions but still able to serve food and drink
I was attracted to this place by it’s online pictures. The ambiance did not disappoint. It is beautiful!! Unfortunately we went on one of the coldest days this winter and they weren’t equipped to keep their patio heaters continuously on. Our heater shut off several times and after calling staff over each time it shut off, it was more than obvious they were annoyed by us. Finally we decided to just take our food to go since the heaters wouldn’t stay on so we asked for some to go boxes. We were handed 2 boxes to jam everyone’s food into and no bags. I was truly looking forward to this place but was just so disappointed with the service.
Really cool place. I will go back again. Food was great.
Thanks so much for the feedback, Scott! We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a review and we hope you'll join us again soon!
Although it was well below freezing... we had a great time at The Exchange and we were so happy they were still open for outdoor dining! The staff was welcoming and considerate of getting orders out as quickly as possible. The atmosphere was beautiful and they did their best to keep the outdoor area warm for guests! The food was incredible. We would love to come back anytime we’re in town!
Thanks so much for the kind review! Thanks for braving the freezing temps and spending your evening with us. We hope you'll join us again soon. Have a fantastic day!
We were thankful they are still able to offer outdoor dining on their beautiful rooftop (in the pandemic restrictions), though it was chilly and the table fire pit was malfunctioning. However, their food is delicious and the drinks are inventive and sophisticated. The food came out at different times, so some of us had to wait and watch the others eat. I think they were doing the best they could, trying to serve the food as hot as possible, given the cool temps. We love this venue (the views are amazing).
Wonderful place. The team did a great job of shifting things since it was the first day of no inside dining’. The outdoor space is beautiful, warm, and inviting with
spectacular views of the city. Drinks and food were unique and delicious. We did a sampling of 3 plates and there was more than enough to share. The Brussels sprouts stole the show. Friendly and attentive service.
If you are in the area don’t miss this restaurant.
The perfect date spot.
Love this place! Can’t wait to return when it’s warm and things are normal.
The food was not spectacular however the view was amazing!
Great view and delicious food! Wood oven pizza is a must! Great cocktails as well!
From the moment we walked in the door we were treated to a relaxing attentive dining experience. Outside was breezy but worth the view. Drinks large and well mixed. Limited menu done well. Appetizer salad could have been a meal in itself. Fantastic burger, shoestring fries and a scrumptious dessert. Next time I’ll try the brick oven pizza. Service,food,and view all excellent.
The three pizza my table ordered were over priced, burned, and raw on the inside. I bit into a charred slice to be greeted by raw dough. We mentioned it to the waitress only to not have anything amended. I will never be returning here. There are much better restaurants in town for much cheaper prices. Don’t waste your money.
The bar was beautiful and the view was breath taking. The drinks were very good and the hostess was very nice. However our sever messed up our drink order, didn’t check on us a lot and she messed up our bill. Her mood seemed off like she was annoyed or upset with us.
Great location, excellent Food and service.
