    The seating arrangements and noise level make it very difficult for a group to converse. The live music in the dining area rather than in the bar area, precludes conversation between couples as well. Food is tasty and served small plate style. Waitress steered us wrong when recommending 2 small plates per person which ended up being excessive.

    Small plates of delicious food. Try the asparagus fries, the decadent mac and cheese and a Tallulah cocktail, house made strawberries and jalapeño tequila.

    Food was good, noise level was too loud, music not fitting to the restaurant (heavy metal), not conducive to carrying on a conversation. Spoke to the manager and he did tone down the volume.

    We ordered 5 dishes all together. The calamari & the sliders with tomato jam were way too sweet and a disappointment. The mac and cheese, tostada & skirt steak were very good. We found the drinks small and pricey as well as the food.

    This was my first time to Swallow so I was hoping the good things I heard about the restaurant were true. We had a reservation and were seated promptly which is always a plus; the hostess was very pleasant and very friendly. So far, so good. All we needed now was good service from the waiter, no long delays from the kitchen and good food and the night would start very well. That is exactly what we received; the food and service were excellent and the kitchen timed the various tapas perfectly. We will defintely be back to enjoy some of the other items we wanted but didn't order. Looking forward towards my next visit.

    Swallow is a great new addition to the Huntington dining scene. The small plates concept works for me; I love being able to sample a few different dishes. The menu changes but some of my favorites were the meatball parm hero, chicken tostada, fried asparagus and burrata with heirloom tomatoes. But there are so many choices I haven't tasted yet so I'm looking forward to going back soon. Friendly and concerned service. Sit at the back counter and watch the chef put the orders together.

    Swallow is an awesome restaurant! The food is absolutely phenomenal... I love everything I get, every time I go! The service is always excellent, as well! Both the manager and the owner checked to make sure everything was okay, and our waiter was nice and accommodating. It can be hard to get a reservation for bigger parties and is very busy on the weekends, but it is worth going to if you can get in!

    First 2 times we stopped in on a week night, they told us no tables were available and we should make a reservation. Both times, I did notice open tables when we walked in, no one waiting for the tables and when I walked by the restaurant a few minutes later...still open tables. This time, we decided to go on Open Table before we headed over and magically, they had immediate seating open for prime dinner time. While we were there, the place was never packed. They seem to want to give the vibe that it is difficult to get a table there. We loved the serving style of one tapas dish out at a time so you can enjoy the excellent flavor of each. The staff was nice but everything seemed very impersonal. It is pricey. Not an everyday place.

    A nice restaurant, with some great dishes. The butternut squash cappucino soup, and mac & cheese were to die for! The grilled octopus was yummy too. The service was spotty. One minute the waitress was right there, and then we couldn't find anyone when we wanted a drink. Sometimes the wait was a bit long between dishes. The small plates were neat, but I imagine someone with a voracious appetite might not be satisfied. I would return to try a few of the other dishes.

    Enjoyed the food and drink VERY much and and the service was great. Our orders arrived hot, fresh and tasty and the beer was cold. Everybody was friendly. The decor is beautiful. However, it was very loud (and I realize that's intentional) so keep that in mind - this is not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner. It IS the place to eat and drink well!!

    I came here with my girlfriend a couple nights ago and let me tell you the food was amazing. Each dish was better then the last. If you find yourself in Huntington wondering where to go for dinner this is the place! I highly recommend the Calamari it was the best dish we had and it was delicious.

    My friend took me to Swallow for my birthday. We shared 5 plates of food, each one different and delicious. We also had palomas for cocktails. The decor is so pretty. The only time I have gone there was before it expanded and the food then was delicious. It's definitely a place I would go back to. I hope to go back soon actually!

    Four girlfriends went to Swallow on Sunday for brunch. We were seated right away, told that there would be a live jazz band, in case we wanted to be in a quieter area to have conversation (very thoughtful of the hostess). The selections and "small plates" were explained to us, and recommendations made. The food was delicious, innovative and beautifully presented. While each portion is small, it was perfect for us. Diners with larger appetites would want to order more than one each. We shared squash blossoms, shrimp and grits (our favorite), challah french toast with berries, and an egg/asparagus/serrano ham entree - so we all got a taste. We loved the atmosphere and the artwork. Desserts delish...Good choice in Huntington Village!

    This was my third time here. Love this place! The roasted cauliflower and clam tacos are spectacular! I recommend the mussels, the chicken livers, the calamari and the red snapper. The lobster roll is fresh, but bland. The grilled octopus was unfortunately burnt, but the flavor of the sauce was good. And even tho the fried asparagus was a bit on the greasy side, they tasted great

    So Swallow used to be my all time favorite restaurant.I loved the intimate setting, the special menu that changed often. it was always a surprise what we were going to get. Even though it was small plates, the portion size was perfect to share. And then..they closed and reopened bigger but not better. The service was not as strong, had us waiting on drinks and now looks like they have a stock menu that will rarely change. Those special dishes will be no more. We went for brunch but 1 egg was $15, not enough too share, tasty but pricey. The portion sizes seemed to have gotten smaller. Anyway, my overall experience was dissappontment. everything I loved has changed and not for the better.

    In a town where there are plenty of good restaurants to choose from, Swallow stands out at the top. The food is absolutely the best in Huntington. And after a major renovation and expansion they found a staff that was friendly, attentive and knowledgable.

    It was our 8th wedding anniversary and was trying to find a great place to enjoy and celebrate at without our kids and puppy for one night. A friend of my husband's from work recommended. I made the reservation online, which was so easy to do here and even easier to change when I had to push the time back, because my husband was running late in traffic from work. Overall, an amazing place and had a wonderful night celebrating out. Would totally recommend as the food and service was a amazing.
