The service, food and atmosphere were all quite good.
Would visit again.
Fantastic food. Server was first class all the way.
Love the old school feel and the food is amazing. The rock shrimp and the Wellington are a must.
Very good food and service. The noise level was a little over the top. Service staff was very attentive yet not hovering. We were 6 for a business dinner and all had different choices. Plenty of appetizers and everyone got at least a bite of everything. I am an executive chef, research and development chef, and a fellow in the American Academy of Chefs. I can very comfortably recommend Swift & Sons without reservation. $$
First class as always with very attentive & professional wait staff. Thumbs up!
Amazing as always! Impeccable service and incredible food!
By far the best steakhouse in the city. I wish they kept their dry aged options, but still the best. The magician is also always a treat.
Dominic was awesome server.
Spent our 4th anniversary here while out of town. What a find, this place exceeded our expectations. Fun atmosphere and great food.
Food and wine were excellent. Thanks for the wonderful pairings Marcello.
The shrimp appetizer and the perogies were phenomenal. I had the scallops and my husband has the waygu steak. Split the fries and the double baked potato. Hubby had desert, I was too full. Everything was excellent! We also had old fashion cocktails from the bar cart, in addition to specialty cocktails. Highly recommend!
Even though 2 hours early for reservation we sat at the bar and ate while enjoying fantastic service!
My reservation was at 7:30, we didn’t get our table until 8. It seems like a common theme with this establishment
Celebrated a birthday with a small group. It’s a relatively loud space but we wrangled a seat in the back and that helped with noise. The food was good to terrific. Steaks were excellent. Sides of mushrooms and twice-baked potato were excellent. Shrimp scampi was very so-so. The waiter brought the sundae for dessert and it was excellent. Servers hovered to an extent that was sort of silly and annoying. All in all a lovely evening.
We had an amazing experience here to celebrate Mother’s Day and my graduation. The service was wonderful and the waiter was sure to accommodate our party’s gluten allergy and even provided gluten free bread. The filet mignon was exceptional. The waiter even gave us complimentary Mother’s Day ice cream and sorbet. I would highly recommend and will definitely be coming back!
Everything was perfect! Great food, great ambience and the best server, Benjamin! He helped make our experience that much better with his knowledge and charming personality!
Mothers Day w Adam at the Swift and Sons upper bar.
It’s our favorite place with the best bar tender in the city!!!
Enjoyed Mother’s Day brunch at Swift and Sons. Food was served timely and tasted wonderful. Service was excellent. We will be back.
Mother’s Day brunch
This used to be one of my favorite restaurants. I even had my last birthday party there. I took my mom there for Mother's Day and was sadly disappointed. The prix fixe menu sounded great, but the food was subpar (steak was not warm when served, crab crepes were dried out with very little sauce) especially for the price, and it was obvious that they had pre-prepared the options on the menu as they were served within 10 mins after we were seated. We had not even received our pastries. For these prices, you expect high end service, and pre-prepared dishes does not fall in that category.
Enjoyed the Mother’s Day brunch. However, we did not get a highchair as requested. Spent my entire Mother’s Day meal holding my son because he was too small for booster. Additionally, there are no diaper changing stations in the bathroom.
Food was great. All food items came out at once which was overwhelming. Eggs and steak were cold. Again, had a nice time but for coming out on Mother’s Day would have thought meal would have been coursed better and high chairs would have been available.
We love Swift and Sons and go fairly often as a family as well as with clients. We were here on Saturday for my son’s 17 th Birthday dinner. When we arrived 5 minutes Early for our 9:15 PM reservation we were told it would be just a few minutes. A few minutes turned into well over 30 minutes and since we had to minors with us we could not go to the bar to get a drink or pass the time. We were not offered anywhere to go to get out of the crush of people coming in and out of the foyer and the hostess acted like she was personally offended when I went to the host stand to check on our reservation at the 30 minute mark. Our service Once we got to our table was wonderful as always. The girls at the hostess desk are very out of sync with the service level of the rest of the restaurant. They are very young, unprofessional, and borderline rude.
It was like our fourth visit to the restaurant. Always very good and caring service. Food is very good as it should be for the price level.
It’s very bad experience. Never imagine. The service is so slow bad.
Hostess. :(. Omg. I’m so bad.
Took 20 mins to seat us with reservation and almost half an hour for our food to arrive.
We had an 8pm rez and did not get seated until 9pm... they blamed on the rain. They said the 6pm reservations came in late due to the rain. Am I believe that people were one hour late due to the rain? Mind you we were there at 7pm and checked in and waited at the bar so they could have seated us at ANY time. They were way over booked.
I had an overall exceptional experience. The only downside is I made RSVP and didn’t get seated until 90 minutes after my scheduled time.
I would avoid this place. We were seated 45 mns after our reservation, which was confirmed by them the day before. And then only after we loudly complained twice. An older couple who were far nicer waited for 90 mns.
Being made to wait destroys the enjoyment of the very expensive evening. The waiter was very nice but they couldn’t get things done—they placed the plates for the meal on top of menus and the wine last, we waited for water, waited on clearing plates, waited for drinks.
There are a lot of great restaurants in this city. Pick another.
Steaks were disappointing; “Medium” NY Strip came out dry and tough.
Great restaurant catering to carnivores but with lots of other options. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and helpful. Two of us had the eight ounce filet. You could cut it with a butter knife, done to our requests, delicious. One of our group has the rib eye which was equally tender and delicious. The sea bass, I can’t remember the alternate name it was called, was fresh and tasty. Our sides of fingerling potatoes and asparagus were hot and tasty. None of us left hungry and all were full and satisfied. I appreciated that we were encouraged to linger over our dinner and drinks. Pleasant and welcoming.
Fantastic meal while in Chicago on business. Food and service were outstanding!!
Visiting Chicago, I wanted a decent steak near to my hotel. I lucked out! I found Swift &Sons on-line. I had a good lobster bisque to start and then an excellent steak - then the dessert range offered a cookie dish with ice cream - very good.
I was eating on my own, and also a last minute booking - so ended up seated by the bar - which was moderately noisy but entertaining. The service was first class from all staff. Thank you!
We came to Swift and Sons to celebrate a birthday. It was a really enjoyable experience in a really cool space. We started with cocktails and the seafood cold platter and followed it with lobster bisque and the tomato/burrata salad which was to die for. Our steaks were perfectly cooked and delicious with accompanying sides of grilled asparagus and double stuffed baked potatoes. After dinner my boyfriend got a drink from the manhattan/old fashioned cart.
Perfect place for a birthday celebration.
Amazing service, great drinks!
Disappointing; hugely expensive for mediocre food. Skip it!
Loved the steaks. Nice drink menu. Enjoyed the oysters and shrimp appetizers.
Everything was good except the burger bun, which was dry and stale.
We Gad a wonderful Time with Our Adult Children and Grand Children! Thanks-You
The food and service was exceptional. Our steaks were cooked to perfection.
