    Default quite the reverse

    - Hey, John, she loves you more than you love her, right?
    - No, it's quite the reverse...

    Is "quite the reverse" a common and popular expression in English, please? Is it too formal? Should I use another one? Which one?
    Thanks

    It is a common expression. It is not too formal if you mean in this dialogue, though I would omit "it's" as not necessary.
