Swing Wine Bar
Swing is the perfect spot for date night, girl's night out or celebrating with friends!
With an award-winning wine list and wonderful staff, Swing is perched on the hill overlooking Capitol Lake. At night, our glass mosaic bar glows warmly and the niches in our converted bungalow create intimate seating areas. Relax on the outdoor patio (weather-permitting) or reserve our downstairs Wine Cellar for special events.
Swing is a full service restaurant and bar specializing in original & classic craft cocktails, wine flights, and over 40 wines by the glass. We are independently owned and operated since 2007.
We are new to the area
and we enjoyed this restaurant
I love that the menu is very clear on GF items
The food was amazing and they had a huge selection of wines to choose from. I was very happy to have different wine flights available. Overall great place, but it can get pricy very fast.
Sent my daughter and her boyfriend from out of town. They’ll be back. We frequent this place ourselves.
Great dining experience. Loved the bacon wrapped figs and deviled eggs. Nice wedge salad and the Brisket was great. Quality drinks and fantastic service. Nice view of the city lights over Capitol Lake. Definitely a great little spot.
Converted house. Tables are cozy, but a nice job creating separation. Parking is a bit of a problem. On street parking only.
Always excellent service, food and wine, and ambiance. Our favorite place in the South Sound. Oh, and the view is spectacular!
Timely seating and near a window, wonderful. Was expecting to hear live music, there wasn’t live music. We did not receive our entire order. Server seemed unable to accommodate simple requests for our dishes(vegetarian, had cauliflower, seemed closer to raw than grilled). Also very difficult to cut, large cauliflower heads kept rolling around, sending food all over table. Pear almost non existent. Server grabbed my drink glass to clear table- while I was still holding it, she never even looked back. Drink seemed watered down. Not our first time to swing, mostly enjoyable experiences, but this Valentine’s experience was a $70 disappointment- we didn’t even order a full dinner, as vegetarian options are only available under other sections of the menu. And as I mentioned, no substitutes or alterations allowed. Disappointing being we even waited till Saturday to celebrate thinking it would be a better experience.
We really love Swing. The shared plates are amazing and the service exceptional. It’s an intimate setting and reservations are a must. Enjoy!!!!
Swing always has impeccable service and food! Steven our waiter was amazing as always!
Good food. Great wine list. A bit noisy, but we were able to talk without shouting.
The food and drinks were fantastic 👌. The service was great. We were able to enjoy our conversation with friends as well.
Excellent as always
Swing is my favorite place to gather with good friends! Always delicious and welcoming.
Great place to eat. Something for everyone. And the wine selection is superb.
Wonderful rack of lamb as usual. Still need to do something about the brussel sprouts since they are rather tough. Need to trim off more of the stem end. The Old Fashioned didn't seem quite as good as the last time which was months ago. A friends soup was delicious and plenty. Chocolate fondue was delicious and more than enough for the three of us. A lovely place to enjoy good food.
Creative and delicious dishes, amazing desserts, a huge wine list and fun flights!
Great food, ambiance, and service! Will definitely be going back.
Excellent service and food. A great experience!!!
We went there for dinner on Christmas Eve. We were seated promptly and the service was attentive but not overly intrusive. The food was really good. We had the mushrooms which were done to perfection. All the food was hot. The only failing was having our entree served at the same time as our salad. We will definitely be back to try some of the small plates. The wine list was extensive with good pricing on bottles.
Wonderful food, wonderful staff. Lovely and cozy atmosphere.
We always have consistently excellent quality food every time we come.
We have visited Swing a number of times over the years. This last visit was just okay. The service was not particularly attentive, the food portions were tiny and not all that exciting. We used to love Swing but we will be checking out other spots for our special occasions.
Absolutely wonderful! The ambiance is fun, yet intimate, the food delightful and the service exceptional. Enjoy!!!
The food and service is absolutely fantastic, but it is so cramped and loud. I made reservations in great advance and felt like we were put in the corner. The table wasn’t big enough for our wine flights and appetizers.
Great food and superb wine selection.
Everything was absolutely amazing. The wine tree was beautiful displayed for tasting and Rosemary cheese fondue was the best cheese fondue we have ever had. We also had the deviled eggs and the Italian Flatbread ( which looked like a mini pizza) and they were amazing as well.
Excellent happy hour and the service was impeccable!
It was great fun sharing 6 small plates among our group. All dishes were terrific and interesting. Wine prices were reasonable and the wine we chose (least expensive on the menu) was great. We especially enjoyed the lettuce wraps and the vegetable relleno.
As usual, we had an excellent experience at Swing. We met friends and were able to have delightful conversation, wonderful wine, and a very good dinner.
We dined on several different menu items, all of which were excellent. The waiter was excellent, giving us exemplary service. Could not be happier!
Service was fabulous and the staff was outstanding. The food and wine were fabulous as usual. Always a pleasant night out at Swing.
Excellent food well presented and knowledgeably served.
Great service and drinks, as always.
We love the Swing. Great wine flights for my wife, while still having a nice selection of good beers for me. Service was beyond exceptional. Very knowledgeable about wines and after dinner drinks. Took the time to chat about each.
Swing was a wonderful meal, with reasonably priced wine flights and delicious small plates. The waitstaff were excellent and informative about the wines.
By far the best dining experience that I’ve had in Olympia all year! Food was superb... ambience was cozy... and our waitress was amazing! I am in the process of booking again. You won’t be disappointed!❤️❤️
I’ve already recommended it! Excellent food, great wine!
What a gem of a find!! I was so impressed with every detail of my experience. The ambience is fantastic, the food and drink menus are extensive and the service was lovely! Everything we ordered left my taste buds dancing! I can't wait to return!
Great place! Food and drinks are excellent! Very creative drinks!
This wine bar with a full food menu is a good place to sample shared small plates. My party of two shared four delicious dishes, all different, but all winners. We started with a fondue course, then nibbled on "lamb pops," followed by a vegetarian chile relleno as well as some baked prawns. The service was attentive and friendly.
