A word from 4th & Swift
Atlanta chef, Jay Swift, brings his passion and creative interpretation of seasonal comfort food to 4TH & Swift. Occupying the space that was formerly the engine room to Southern Dairies, the restaurant retains many of the original elements. Exposed brick, concrete and beams are
updated with contemporary accents such as warm woods, rich fabrics and brushed white metals.

At 4th & Swift, Chef/Owner Jay Swift has created a new level in the evolution of the dining scene here in Atlanta. Jay’s culinary focus is one based on the advancement of Southern cuisine; for Jay Southern is less about reinventing regional classics than inventing new ones using regional and local products.

Diner Reviews
  • "named in the recent issue of Atlanta magazine - always looking to add great restaurants to the list - Excellent spot - great food - had the prix fixe menu with a business associate (without the wine pairings) - very good - generous drinks, knowledgeable staff - with lots of other choices, would go back"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I travel and eat out over 200 days a year. 4th and Swift is a restaurant that stands out as one of the best all time....must eat food if you are in the Atlanta area"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I've been here once for a work function and once for a birthday dinner. Both times service was excellent and the food was great. Nothing earth-shattering, but I feel confident that I could go back and get a similar experience with quality food and great service any day of the week."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Food has remained excellent as well as service. Best in Atlanta. Jay Swift and his son are top chefs and nice people."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Everything was absolutely delicious! Of course the macaroni and cheese is to die for."

    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Sunday brunch was great. This was our first visit to 4th & Swift, and we will be back. Definitely get the pastries basket - delicious!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Food choices were limited at best...overpriced and limited in imagination....could have been done anywhere almost embarrassing to take a food savvy date to....the space seemed to be cheaply put together without respecting that cultured eaters want ambiance even in Atlanta...just so many better places to spend your time and money..."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I have twice dined as a party of 4 recently where we all ordered the tasting menu with paired wines, and everyone was delighted both times. The price of $100 ($65 without the wines) is a a great value. We also love the outdoor dining, which is spacious, roofed and on a quiet parking lot. I suspect we will return often."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "This was our fifth or sixth visit to 4th and Swift plus we brought along out of town guests. As always, the food and service were exceptional! Our whole table ordered the Tasting Menu this time and we were stuffed at the end. Each dish was great. What we love most about this place is their willingness to tweak some of the plates to best suit our (my) picky palate. Even after forgetting to tell them of a shellfish allergy until the first dish arrived, they went ABOVE AND BEYOND to cook another plate in fresh oil. Just cannot say enough good things about them and our server Payton was very patient and had a smile the whole time. Will definitely be back soon!"

  • "We went after viewing the Dream Cars exhibit at the High for an early dinner. The restaurant was not crowded, but the bar had quite a few patrons. We ordered the Heirloom Tomato salad - a huge yum! I had the vegetable plate - two of the four were outstanding - the succotash and the eggplant frittes. Other two ok, just not my cup of tea. We ordered wine by the glass recommended by the waiter. We did not like it (fizzy). He gladly exchanged it for the other label. Very good restaurant. Will return."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "4th&Swift is an exceptional dining experience with perfect vibe. This weekend I had the chef's tasting menu and it was genuinely the best meal that I have had in Atlanta in years. The menu was very well thought out and perfectly executed - everything was delicious. The drink menu is also outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for excellent food in a really comfortable space."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "The room is beautiful and the service is delightful. The cocktails, starters, and desserts were fabulous. Our entrees (different fish dishes) were a little plain but certainly fresh and of high quality. We certainly will return and try other things; overall an extremely pleasant experience."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Nothing special and pricy. Great ambience and outdoor seating, excellent service too."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "The menu selections were varied and provided for a wide range of preferences. The wait staff was attentive and explained the various dishes very well. Everyone commented on how fresh the food tasted. Everyone in our party of 7, from ages 17 to 73 enjoyed the evening!"
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Our first brunch there! Fantastic! They even prepared a side that was not on the menu."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I enjoyed the french toast for Sunday brunch. I was surprised that the restaurant was not crowded or busy after church on a Sunday. The service and food were great."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "My husband and I had a lovely date night at 4th and Swift. This was our third time at the restaurant and we have enjoyed every moment each time we visit. We had the cheese and meat plates to start, he ordered Three Little Pigs and I had the gnocchi, which was so soft it melted in my mouth. We finished the evening by sharing two desserts: the toffee pudding, which is divine, and the lemon cheesecake, which was kind of dry but came with a lemon sorbet that was a delight. Our service was fantastic and we were never rushed through our meal."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "4th & Swift is always my first choice when any of my work team is in town. I have taken from one to eight for dinner. Service, food and atmosphere are always great! The duck is exceptional!"
    Dined on 6/17/2014
  • "until the desserts came. I'm not a meat eater so I couldn't sample the calamari, and other appetizers my family enjoyed. But I had a great, fresh, salad and spicy lentils for my meal. Although, I'm off sugar...I am only human. We decided next visit we'll have the peach cobbler for an appetizer, the sticky toffee pudding for our meal, and the lemon ice cream for dessert. As a plus...shhhhh...one of the waitresses makes these incredible paper sculptures she "hides" around the restaurant for patrons to find. My 20-year old daughter found one that had been sitting there for months. Let's just say it made both her and the waitress very, very happy. I'd highly recommend this gem."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "You know that when you start out with great service that you can assume that the food that you will be served will just add to the overall experience. This was the case with our brunch/dinner as the food was outstanding cooked to perfection and served with a flair. It is then that you know that you can recommend the restaurant to friends and acquaintances."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "4th & Swift needs to be on your "restaurant bucket list" for Atlanta. Jay Swift brings innovative cooking with constant reminders of our southern roots. We went on Father's Day and they had a special menu (which is a pet peeve of mine). One of the dishes was a southern field pea minestrone. They also had a grilled peach salad. Both were very good. I much prefer the regular menu and was disappointed they didn't offer that the day we were there. Be sure to go when it isn't a special day like Mother's Day, Father's Day or Valentines so you can get the full experience."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed Father's Day brunch recently. My coffee was never empty. The server was knowledgeable and so pleasant. Each course was very well prepared and presented."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I took an out of town guest here and was not disappointed! We had truffle popcorn, meat and cheese plate, gnocchi, and dessert. All came out exactly as we desired. We love this place!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Took some friends from out of town and everything was perfect. I live a little further away now so it's been a while since I've been to this restaurant and it was as good as I remembered. (Will add it to my "worth the drive" list). The food was phenomenal, fresh and perfectly seasoned. We all enjoyed our meals tremendously. The staff was extremely friendly and attentive. Great atmosphere whether enjoying a romantic dinner for two, sealing a business deal, or just a nice evening out with friends."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "I am a concierge at the Ritz Carlton Atlanta. I've sent MANY of guests who've desired a trendy hotspot. Finally, I decided to come and experience the service and atmosphere for myself. I now wonder why did I wait this long. My friend and I had a wonderful time and plan to return this Thursday for Round 2. You all should join me :)"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "We had a new waitress - we were her first table and she was fantastic! The food and drinks were fantastic as always. Unfortunately, we were sat next to a table with a loud mouth who was cussing a storm."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "Very tasty food and good service. However, this restaurant is quite noisy "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We came for our anniversary, after many recommendations. It exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed the Chef's Tasting Menu. The food is unique and very delicious. Loved the trendy decor. We can't wait to go back and try new courses."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "This is a place I always bring guests from out of town when I want to show-off Atlanta food. It's a stand-out in Atlanta dining, and the food and ambience are amazing. This time, our table of 4 ordered the tasting menu. From top to bottom, it was delicious and paced very well. I was completely satisfied but not uncomfortably full. We could all tell the chef put a lot of thought and consideration into the progression. I want to do it all over again!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Began our 7 day celebration of our 7th anniversary here. Was trying to get here for a few months and am glad we finally made it! It was well worth it! Fabulous food. Everything everyone ordered was absolutely delicious. I had the duck and toffee pudding. I will return for the chef pairing/tasting menu."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Took friends here to say thank you for a huge favor they did for us. Everything was great---food, service, atmosphere. The last time we had gone there, the service was mediocre, at best, but that was because of a specific server, not the restaurant. Will be back again, now with no trepidations."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Hadn't been to 4th & Swift in some time and chose it because my experience had always been one of excellent ingredients creatively prepared and presented, but not overly fussy, and priced accordingly. That was not the case this time. A 3 scallop entrée for $32 borders on a rip off. The tasting menu was interesting, but the butter-poached lobster was rubbery. The wine pairings were excellent, though at $35 for what probably totaled 10 oz. of wine, is also overpriced. I would now categorize 4th & Swift as an expense-account restaurant."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "Didn't meet our expectations this time and we'd been several times before. Menu selection was limited and food mediocre. Disappointing as we spend close to $400 and took 2 friends who'd not been there"
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "great food with locally sourced ingredients. We've never had a bad meal there. We will be back. "
    Dined on 5/20/2014
  • "This place was better than the SunDial. The Service and Food was excellent."
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "Second time here; as good as the first time. Having dined from Paris to Shanghai, the combination of food and service here may very well be the best of anywhere in the world I have dined. Kudos! Keep up the awesome work!"
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Perfect choice for Mother's Day at the recommendation of a friend. Exceptional customer service, delicious food, and our waitress was very helpful with suggestions."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Been to the restaurant before and have never had a bad experience. Went with a group of 8 on Sunday night. Restaurant was almost empty so we considered ourselves lucky. Calling it underwhelming would be an understatement. Service was beyond slow (dinner took 2.5 hours without dessert), several menu items were unavailable, and it was a poor experience overall. I've been here with big groups before and had great experiences, but based on this experience will not be going back. "
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I feel like 4th & Swift is one of those restaurants that doesn't get enough recognition. The food quality and creativity is excellent, with a seasonal and weekly menu, the beverage program is one of the best in the city, the restaurant has great ambiance, and the service is probably the best and most consistent I've experienced in Atlanta. In this case, I took my wife and daughter there for Mother's Day brunch, which had an exciting and varied prix fixe menu. I wish they had a few more high chairs for brunch, but it's understandable as it's not somewhere I'd take a young child for dinner."
