A wonderful evening. The food was interesting, beautifully presented and delicious. The service was spot on. Our server Ron was outstanding. Even knowledgeable about where all the local food came from, which was impressive. Great restaurant!

I'm just so sorry to see it go. It was always outstanding, even through the last meal.

So disappointed to hear this restaurant closed! We ate here on July 22, shocked to find it closed on the 25th! The food was excellent, the service was fantastic, and we enjoyed the lovely cocktails as well. We're so glad we were able to eat here before it closed. We were in town visiting and were looking forward to returning on our next trip. We'll have to give Noble Fin a try instead.

Repeat diners here for good reason. Menu is varied and well thought out. Staff is friendly w/o hovering over. Mood was relaxed and pleasant. This visit could have been more but wasn't. The trout was barely done and my strip steak wasn't trimmed well, some gristle too. The waitress was attentive however, when tables began to fill, she was absent far too if they were short staffed.

The staff couldn't have been more friendly. Loved the open space/vaulted ceilings and soft lighting. I ordered the tasting and had so much fun trying the dish with duck foam, etc. The waiter made excellent drink suggestions especially with dessert. If I could suggest anything, would be to use less sauce on veggies (on NY Strip plate). I would definitely go back next time I visit Atlanta.

Overall, this was a really great experience. The service was top notch. I definitely never had an empty water glass which is oddly important to me when it comes to service. The food was fantastic. The only reason I'm giving it a 4 out of 5 stars is because the variety of food. I think the last time I was here was around 3 or 4 years ago and really nothing has changed when it comes to the main plates. Maybe if ain't broke they don't fix it. Would love to have more "shareable" items on here! Great place overall!

4th & Swift is our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. We return again and again when we want a guaranteed nice meal. Amazing food, fantastic service.

A very solid, still delicious, standard-bearer in the Ponce Market area. Our group of 8 enjoyed everything we ate, the waitstaff was professional but warm and casual, and kept things moving along. There is a bit of a bottleneck at the valet station at the bottom of the stairs because of the narrow landing but nothing to spoil a mood. We go back time and again.

Dined on Saturday night. Restaurant was surprisingly not busy at 7 pm but we were told that there were lots of reservations for later.
Server was very good-friendly available but not intrusive. Food was wonderful. Distinct flavors and textures.
Had the steak and the duck entrees, Both excellent. sides were good. The cold soup appetizer and the roasted cauliflower apps were different and extremely good.

My bf and I went to 4th and Swift to celebrate our four year anniversary and I cannot say enough good things about it! The waiter brought over complimentary champagne as soon as we sat down and cookies with a beautiful chocolate "Happy Anniversary" writing at the end. All of the food and drinks were absolutely amazing. We will definitely be back over and over again!

My wife and I love 4th and Swift. Dinner is pricy but not unreasonably so for the quality of the food and excellence of the service. This is our go to place when we want to celebrate a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary and have time for a 3 or 4 course meal. My wife always orders the duck which is perfectly cooked every time. And I often branch out and try new things and have never been disappointed. They also have a fun cocktail menu:)
