QuestionHandling Web Request Failures Pin

I have a RestSharp wrapprer class to work with my WebAPI, and it has an Execute method looks like this
public async Task<T> ExecuteAsync<T>() where T : new()
    URL = client.BaseUrl + request.Resource;

    IRestResponse<T> restResponse = await client.ExecuteTaskAsync<T>(request, new CancellationToken());

    var result = (T)restResponse.Data;

    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(restResponse.ErrorMessage))
        throw new Exception(restResponse.ErrorMessage);
        if ((int)restResponse.StatusCode >= 299)
            string message = string.Format("An error occured calling the WebAPI. {0} The status code is '{1}'. {2} The error message is {3}",
                                            Environment.NewLine, restResponse.StatusCode, Environment.NewLine, restResponse.Content);
            throw new Exception(message);

    return result;
I then use a proxy class like this. This class has all the calls to the api in it
public async Task<List<OperatorEntity>> GetAllOperatorsAsync()
    var webAPIExecutor = new WebAPIExecutor(Credentials, ServerUrl, "/Operator/GetAllOperators/", Method.GET);
    return await webAPIExecutor.ExecuteAsync<List<OperatorEntity>>();
All of my web calls are contained in this proxy. I then use it like this:
private async void GetAllOperators()
    var operators = await APIProxy.GetAllOperatorsAsync();

The question is, what is the right way to handle a failure? For example, the server is down, or the credentials are incorrect? Or an exception happened on the server side?

You can see that I have some exception handling in the ExecuteAsync method, but it this the right way to handle this?
If it's not broken, fix it until it is.
Everything makes sense in someone's mind.
Ya can't fix stupid.
