I and my partner enjoyed every bit of the dining experience, the ambiance was romantic, the food was amazing except the puree that came with the 5th course of lamb, it was an eggplant puree, just tasted weird. The wine we chose was absolutely great. Our server Jack was the best 👌. In general, I'd say 8.5 out of 10.

The ambiance of the outside terrace was so perfect last night (76 degrees and clear skies also were a plus). The outside bar was a little crowded and they only had one bartender but he was working hard. Our table was nice, the couch seating on the one side was cozy, and the food, oh the food was delicious! We had someone with some food allergies and the server noted on the menu which plates we could alter and which plates contained her allergen so it made ordering for the 4 of us much easier. We all said we would definitely come back to Cabra's.

The place is amazing. Oysters, tartare and fish tacos were outstanding. The beignets are superb!! Gilberto our server was also great. Just a note to manager: the other servers do not help and they do not work as a team

Excellent food and service. Went for girlfriends bday and had the 4 course menu with wine pairing. Sat on patio overlooking the pond. Best meal I have had perhaps ever. Each discrete ingredient of the dishes were full of flavor. Cheese plate for dessert was delicious.

While in Chicago for business I took 3 customers out to eat. Swift and Sons was very good and the food was spot on. The wait staff was so much fun, we cut up and laughted the entire time we were there. There was not one aspect of the entire night that was not 5 stars. I know there is alot of places to eat in Chicago but Swift and Sons is a must try.

This was one of the most memorable and truly lovely experiences we’ve had at The Lobby. Kimberly and the staff went above and beyond to take great care of us on a special occasion. Their genuine kindness and giving nature along with the delicious food made our day PERFECTION.
