Their house-made sourdough bread is worth the trip alone. I personally always order the chicken liver because it's some of the best I've ever had. My vegetarian husband is happy with the option of the Impossible Burger and all our other table mates were equally pleased. One had the hanger steak. We'll be back!

We had been to Anton’s pre-Covid and loved our dinner. A very gracious older woman explained how they had a very old and treasured bread starter which made their bread so incredible. We excitedly made reservations in this return trip to be very disappointed. The special bread no longer existed and the rest of the meal was pedestrian at best. Eggless were the same on both entrees, a weak blend of tasteless string beans and carrots. We have to assume with the additional pizza and burger choices on the menu that they combined the bar and dining room menus together which see,es to have effected the upscale dining atmosphere and cooking. Maybe it is a different chef. We would definitely not return again. Try Brian’s for a really good meal in town instead. Or just go for drinks at the bar at the Swan .

Setting is beautiful. Server was very nice. But food is more for the bar area than great dining. Lots of white pizza and hamburgers. My swordfish was soft and the pasta side was basic. My wife was disappointed in her chicken pesto dish. Said it was watery. Pear salad was good but too much dressing. Very good sour dough bread could be warmed.

We’ve eaten in bar many times and when we return will stick to pizza and other bar type offerings.

Haven't been to Anton's in over a year, not having gone last year because of COVID. Usually give high rating across the board, but this time there were a few issues, mainly food-related. My dinner was excellent - Grigg's (I think) Chicken. My favorite dish was taken off the menu after many years (Filet Mignon). Server said it was because of the price of meat. Ok, I get it. My partner's steak was very tough - she said it tasted like a London broil (tougher cut) instead of a flank steak. The appetizers were great (risotto and a pear salad). The dessert (lava cake/ice cream) was quite small, but tasty. The wine, drinks, and coffee were all good. Ambiance and waitresses were excellent. That's it. Overall, definitely will go back and highly recommend.

This was the third time in about six months we dined there. This was the first mediocre meal. I had the pork chop and truffle mashed potatoes and vegetables. Wife had the cod. My veggies were cold, the potatoes had but a very faint truffle taste and the cod was blah. Grilled chop was excellent and as before all else was superb. I really like this restaurant and will return. The staff are wonderful also.

We were there for our anniversary and we were very disappointed at the lack of dinner choices. Appetizers were minimal. The hamburgers we ended up having were very good and perfectly cooked to our liking. We felt that for $90 we should have had something more than ground beef.

Whilst the menu hadn't changed too much from a month ago, I had an outstanding combination of three starters. The purée of corn soup (good but not special), the chicken liver pâté (always excellent), and one of the best small pasta dishes that I can remember for a long time: angel hair pasta, smoked salmon, and walnuts in a rich cream sauce. A couple of glasses of wine from the small, but thoughtful, by the glass menu enhanced everything.

From the moment Rachael greeted us at the table, the entire night was a great experience. Her service was prompt and professional without being obsequious and our food was perfectly served and prepared.
Top to bottom, the approximately $100 per diner was money well spent. Would do so again, without hesitation.

Wow! We have not visited the Swan in quite some time and we are glad to have returned! We had an early reservation at 5:30 PM on a Friday evening and, as we were about 10 minutes early, we were greeted by Aileen and escorted to our beautiful window table upstairs. It was quiet and peaceful. Rachel, our server, welcomed us and took our drink order. We had the dining room to ourselves and just enjoyed many of the historical prints of George Washington hanging on the walls and the beautiful stained glass windows with just the right amount of light streaming in. We both ordered the puree of corn soup which was light and tasty with just the right amount of cornbread croutons sprinkled on top. What a great way to whet our appetite! Next, I had the rare tuna and my husband had the sauteed Halibut. Both accompanied by smooth delicious mashed potatoes and a carrot and broccoli vegetable mix. The meal was tasty, light and overall amazing! We cannot wait to return and enjoy another memorable experience at Anton's at the Swan!
