    We were seated in the rotating area and view was fantastic. Very unique experience in that regard. However, the disappointment was with the food. We had oysters that were incredibly small and briny, filet Mignon that wasn’t very tender, and lobster tail that was just so-so. Brighter spots on the menu included the calamari, potato gnocchi, and banana foster cheesecake. However, overall the food just did not live up to expectations.

    A fantastic overall experience! The service was top notch and the ambiance was very neat. Not too loud, not too quiet. The complimentary bread was delicious and the food we ordered was too. We really liked the gnocchi appetizer and the shoestring fries (if you really like crunchy fries).

    I went to celebrate my husband’s birthday. The waiter and host acknowledged the fact upon arrival. We ordered a slice of cake for dessert. Although other tables around us were presented with a candle, no candle was presented, and we were charged. We also ordered wine with our steak. The glass of wine arrived 1/2 hour after the steak. Food was excellent. Service, not so much. Would not go back for a special occasion or celebration.

    Service was exceptional. Our server Brittney was on the ball. The manager John visited our table and offered some wonderful suggestions. We ordered the carnivore platter for three of us with 3 sides and it was Amazing and more than enough! To top it off, the view of the city was beautiful. The only slight downside was the lack of gluten free dessert options. We will be back.

    I was so excited to finally go to the spinning restaurant on top of the Galt House Hotel. We got there and were seated on the wheel with no wait as we had reservations. Then it all went downhill...it was so loud everyone was yelling to speak to each other so the noise level was off the charts. We ordered our food and I don't know how you manage to ruin a salad and baked potato, but they did. My potato was so cold the butter would not melt. My husband said his steak was good and for $48 (no sides included) it better have been. The "view" was not at all what I expected. View of the city was a couple of buildings and a parking lot. Other side was the river and over into Indiana. I was so very disappointed by the entire experience. The plus was our waitress was very attentive.

    Such a wonderful experience. John, the assistant general manager, sat us and checked in on us several times and we engaged in great conversation. Brittany was an amazing server who went above and beyond taking her time to explain everything in detail, answer all of our questions and gave us several suggestions of local places to check out, she even brought us a map. The food was also fantastic. I cannot recommend this place enough. Definitely ask for Brittany.

    Food was extremely subpar. I wouldn’t recommend the crab cake or meatball appetizers. My steak was ordered medium rare but delivered seared, so basically rare. I think this place relies too much on their city view spinning dinning room and not enough on quality food. Server was pleasant.

    I reviewed the yelp listings and reviews were great. Open table made the reservations easy. Had a business dinner here. I had no idea how really nice it was until we got there and I was pleasantly surprised. The food and service were on par with an expensive place like Morton’s, prices were more reasonable. Highly recommend trying Swizzle

    Swizzle is such a wonderful and elegant get away from the hectic ness of everyday life, with beautifully redesigned decor, an excellent bar and lounge, with fantastic views from every single seat. There’s nothing like the experience of the feeling of floating above the city and Ohio River. Apart from the extraordinary environment the menu is well thought out with something special for every palate. The kitchen/ chef create cuisine that is yet another special experience due to a diversity of flavors and culinary skill and excellence. The servers are top notch, and notable for the layers of servers watching your table and tending what you need without being intrusive. A hidden gem ( above the city).

    The prime rib was so tough it could barely be cut with a steak knife- no exaggeration- and scallops were excessively salty and the sauce likewise - does the chef taste that stuff? Unhealthy dining- won’t be back

    Definitely not what I was expecting. I sincerely miss the Rivue, it was a much classier venue. My wife and I went on our first date at the Rivue years ago. We recently moved back to Kentucky and thought we'd give Swizzle a shot. The atmosphere is very dark and not very welcoming. Most of the staff (except our actual server) was fantastic. Upon asking for recommendations (since it's an unfamiliar menu), the server became annoyed and his answer was highly condescending. The rest of the staff were incredible. Our needs were constantly met. The food was very tasty, but not what we were expecting based upon our experiences with the previous restaurant. Not sure that we'll come back because the new restaurant just isn't our style. Bring back the piano, and teach the servers how to treat clients. Expressing interest in the patrons and taking a few seconds to actually listen and answer their questions would go a long way.

    We both ordered filet mignon and it was yummy! The downfall to the whole experience was the service. Our waiter actually quit and walked out! The manager simply walked around at a turtle’s pace with a tablet, glancing at tables and tapping something on the tablet. Other tables were complaining about the crazy amount of time it took to get absolutely anything served OR to even see your waiter to request something. The manager would respond but with no sense of urgency. There’s so much potential for it to be a truly awesome dining experience but the logistics of staff sucked.

    While the atmosphere and rotating dining area were lovely, the food was fine but not outstanding. Rolls were extremely underdone and sides were very, very small portions. Steaks were cooked well but food overall was "just okay." Our main waiter didn't check on us much and forgot drink refills. The younger wait staff that actually brought out the food did a much better job. Was a nice try for a special occasion but won't go back.
