What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Swift & Sons might have a separate seafood restaurant inside of it, but this steakhouse is the star of the show.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Bone in filet was great! The steak tartare lacked flavour, but the meat was very tender. Great wine selection and service overall very good! Great ambiance and experience.

We had been here twice before and thought the food and service were very good both times. That remained generally true on this occasion.
On a previous visit, having made the reservation on line and specifically asking for a quiet table, we were unnerved to find ourselves seated next to a massive office party in an adjacent room. We made the same request on this occasion and underscored that preference when checking in. Again, we were initially seated next to a party of about twelve and alongside another of about six. After complaining, we were moved to a very comfortable, far more quiet booth. This was much better, but affected the available attention of our otherwise wonderful server.
Maybe steak joints aren’t the best place to have quiet conversations. I still like this place though.

My darling and I tried Swift & Sons prior to a concert at the United Center. The team was aware, on top of the timing, consistently made sure we were enjoying the evening and on time. Great food, great service, great experience. BTW they repeat this performance every time now. I keep coming back.

This is the third time my husband and I have gone here for our anniversary! They're customer service is excellent. They found out it was our anniversary. Right when we sat down they brought us two glasses of very nice champagne. They brought us an organic tomato dish. We got truffles on a plate that said Happy Anniversary! They also took a picture of us and made it into an anniversary card. If you have a special occasion I highly recommend celebrating at Swift and Sons! Austin took good care of us.

I am from Texas and the filet was one of the best that I have ever had. I probably could have cut the meat with my fork. The sweet corn agnolotti was excellent!
This will be our go-to place every time we visit Chicago!

Went here for my 35th birthday with my husband. S&S gave us one of the best experiences. I did enjoy our server, but our backwaiter made our night even more enjoyable. Very attentive.

Everything was delicious. Some of the favorites: 22oz Bone-in Ribeye, Creamed Spinach, Chilled Corn Soup, Potato Pierogies & the Angel Food Cake. We ordered many more items, but those stood out to us. Also I could DRINK the garlic anchovy butter. Delicious.

Great drinks too! Impeccable wine list!

Starting with the authentic renovation the ambience is first to take your notice. Attention to detail from interesting details of the buildings history to the thoughtful seating. Service impeccable but not intrusive. Wait staff is friendly but truly professional. Now let’s talk about the food; high quality, locally sourced and delicious! No stretch to say, best meal I have eaten out in a very long time. Certainly worth the hour and a half drive. We’ll be back...soon!
