Tremendous service, food and cocktails great too. It’s a warm and inviting space.

Amazing place with excellent service. Food is also above average for vegetarians.

Overall5food5service5ambience5

Really cool vibe and food was delicious. It’s farm-table food so if you were expecting Asian (since described as Japanese listening room), nothing on menu remotely Japanese.

The Exchange is a wonderful place for a variety of occasions. Just sitting and having a couple of drinks is enjoyable. The bartender mixes great cocktails. My wife and I sampled four different specialty cocktails. The music is a mix of jazz and blues using a turntable and records. The menu is limited. We tried two appetizers which were great. The tomatoes and burrata with a delicious baquette, and a loaf of bread with nuts, honey, butter, and cheese. Both really good. We split a chopped salad and took half home. It was mixed perfectly and the dressing was not over powering. The menu is healthy with a fish, chicken, and meat selection and several vegetarian options. We had the rice, zucchini and tofu and the pasta with corn relish. We took home both. Dessert was blueberries, corn meal topped with ice cream. Simple, yet tasty. I highly recommend The Exchange. It is excellent for pre and post theater dining and/or drinks.

The whole experience truly was outstanding last night! I spoke with the manager Jimmy ahead of time that day to set up a great seat for us as I was planning to propose. But then the table by the window, that Jimmy and I thought was beautiful was a little to close to the bar for my soon to be fiancé. The host found us a table more towards the back of the restaurant that was a quiet, and did turn out to be perfect. She did say yes btw. Truly a beautiful experience on every level!

Step into a piece of heaven here. It’s all my favorite things about dining out…. Farm to table…. Artisanal cocktails…. Amazing architectural views….the hostess with the mostess…… bread to die for…. Music playing…. Literally step into heaven here for a couple hours before going back out to the madness of what the world is today!

Our food was great and service was excellent. Went originally to check out the audio experience but was pleasantly surprised by the quality of our drinks, apps, and entrees. Our server Amanda was great as well.

Overall5food5service5ambience5

This a real gem in the Loop. It is in the first phase of opening - there will be three different areas ultimately open in this beautiful space in the Railway Exchange building - so the menu and space are limited. That said, I enjoy the music room, toward the interior of the building, and did not feel the space was crowded or too loud. The specialty cocktails are creative and tasty. The food is excellent and portions are generous. The halibut was done to perfection, the Mac and cheese was the best ever, and the cauliflower made you forget you were actually eating a vegetable. Ate every bite. Highly recommend.

Excellent friendly service. Gorgeous interior. Can’t wait for the atrium to open! Good and inventive food, but some items are on the pricier side.

Overall5food5service5ambience5

Everything from the swanky decor to the amazing team (especially Savannah) was perfect. Looking forward to the expanded atrium and back bar space.

Wonderful anniversary dinner at the Exchange. The atmosphere is delightful. Drinks were perfectly balanced. Our server Savannah was lovely and balanced a heavy workload with being attentive and helpful. Every dish had move flavor than the last. We look forward to our next visit.

Next door and have been to Exchange a few times since they fully opened.

Will continue to dine there regularly and have recommended it to friends.
The
Music could be a bit lower but it does depend on the choice for the evening.
Last evenings music (Jazz) was perfect for us so it was enjoyable.

Overall3food3service2ambience1

It’s marketed as a sound bar, but be careful when you make reservations that you’re sitting in the actual room that has the audio set up. If you’re sitting in the front room, you will have a hard time discerning any actual music over the crowd noise. Food was good, service was inattentive.

Overall5food5service5ambience5

This is a beautiful space with an amazing seasonal menu. The wine list is spectacular. If you love music, this is the place for you. The jazz was a perfect addition to the meal. Highly recommend. Ill be back.

Overall3food3service3ambience3

The listening room was underwhelming to say the least. We expected it to be in the big hall inside, instead we got a typical dining experience. The drinks and food were decent but I did not think our experience was one that was worth the occasion.

We had a wonderful meal and a great time at The Exchange. Service was excellent and food was great. Only complaint is that some of the items were slow to come from kitchen. But the wait staff was outstanding and even comped a food item because of slow service. Highly recommended.

Service, food, and cocktails were outstanding. A+ those.

Unfortunately, there was a very large, very loud group spanning one wall of the dining room area. It really put a damper on the experience.

Didnt stay long enough to eat. The music was just so loud, and also nothing that we wanted to hear, that we left shortly after being seated.

Great new Loop restaurant! Excellent service: Savanna, the server, was engaging, knowledge, friendly and professional. The food was top notch. The selection was not huge but everything was well done; clearly the chef cares about the taste of every dish. Drinks were excellent and unique. We will definitely return.

Wonderful addition to the Loop. The Listening Room was energetic, with a great selection of vinyl. Savannah, our server, was attentive, engaging and just made the overall experience fun. I didn’t love the salad but loved the Demi loaf, and the tofu was incredible. Very spice but packed with flavor and the coconut sorbet was a perfect end. I hope this place continues to endure.

Excellent restaurant out of the box. A terrific start for sure. Food was great. Service was friendly but with a little additional training will be even better. They are currently in the music room and the music volume was very high for such a small space. A gentleman near the speaker was shouting across the table at his dinner companion which brought the level of sound in the space to a crescendo. We are looking forward the rest of the restaurant opening up.

Be sure to order the burrata.

Great all around experience. The lounge atmosphere and bartender were welcoming, served great drinks and the service was excellent. The lounge atmosphere was cool with great LP music (not too loud). Every food item was excellent, particularly liked the country loaf, burrata, cualiflower, steamed walleye and the filet. Will go back whenever in the area. Great wines too. Can’t wait for the full dining room and cocktail bar to be fully open.

Listening room was a bit loud but appropriate for the space. they played Paul Simon, Norah Jones, prince, and James brown while we were there. They bar could’ve used a little more volume. Vibe was hip but it’s on Michigan ave, so there was a touristy element to it.

The atmosphere was top notch and allowed for a unique dining and drinking experience.

The drink menu was well thought-out and the food offered elevated versions of the originals, such as mac & cheese and burrata.
