I last went to Swan during Miami Spice and enjoyed the menu & ambience. Ordering off the regular menu I felt like some items were a bit overpriced however, the portions are pretty normal/generous and the food is very good. I was eating with a vegetarian friend and we ordered a salad, sprouts and fries and everything was delicious - plus I think the perfect amount of food for two. Unfortunately, our server was either brand new or stupid. When we asked questions about the menu, he did not know the answers and seemed somewhat lazy/unwilling to obtain the answers. We were also asked at least twice about clearing our plates when we were not finished. I asked for a black napkin and it was noticeably damp... perhaps the laundry hasn’t been finished that morning. Overall, I think this is a good option for dining in the design district but I would expect better service for the price point.

Eat on the run.

My wife and I sat down to enjoy a meal during Art Basel weekend. We ordered drinks and a menu. We ordered appetizers which came out in less than 60 seconds, way before the drinks.

Before we finished the appetizers, the main course came. The busboy wanted to remove our plates before we were finished the first course.

The waiter frankly said we are very busy tonight and we try to move things along.

I asked for a desert menu just to sit a bit longer and was told. No menu tonight. The waiter relayed to us four deserts. When we picked on he was clearly annoyed.

Start to finish 40 minutes. Getting the car took nearly as long.

We did not feel welcome at the Swan.

If I wanted a fast food restaurant I would of went elsewhere.

Arrived at Swan at 8:11, checked in and did not sit until about 9:30. If it were not so late and I had more energy, I would’ve left and explored new restaurants in the area.

I expected better service. If I did not have a reservation, I could understand the wait time given that it is Art Basel; however, I believe the wait was quite excessive.

We had a 1:00 lunch reservation. We were seated at 2:15. Clearly, the management has no idea how to time tables.

I don't appreciate specifically asking for a good table location ahead of time and then being sat immediately next to the serving station. Very disrespectful considering I made my reservations weeks in advance.

Reservation made for 9:00 and only got seated at 10:10, after escalating to Management. The hostesses didn’t care.

Service was aloof and inattentive.

Food was good, not great, and not matching the level of plate pricing.

Good music, bad value

Swan boasts a great bar with an excellent wine list. The dinner menu gives you fair options, I highly recommend the octopus carpaccio as a starter. My main course was unremarkable, but my side dish of crispy Brussels sprouts stole the show!

Great ambience, an incredible high end place in the heart of the Miami design district. Food is ok and drinks are pricey.

As it was my wives birthday i thought we would go out for a special lunch. Unfortunately the lunch didn’t go as we expected. While ordering our food the server recommended a certain dish, she explained that the roast beef was specially marinated for 2 weeks and it was their best dish! when we got the dish we saw that it was a simpel burger with roast beef ( almost like something from the supermarket) & fries without any taste / salt / pepper anyting. Not really what we expected as it was explained to us very differently. After only eating my dish ( the scallops were good!) which we shared, we asked for thr check but there was no one tk bring us the check. We had to ask 3 times and wait 20minutes just to get the check and pay. This isn’t the first time we experienced this at SWAN, the place looks nice but the staff really needs some training and the NEW Menu doesn’t make sense.

The restaurant has potential. It's a lovely place and some of the dishes are quite good but it doesn't live up to its potential. Service is mediocre and value isn't there.

There were four of us having lunch. Three orders were brought out together and the last order arrived at least 10 minutes later. Very disappointing, and no one apologized for the mixup.

Nothing special. Food was good but not excellent. Tap water shouldn’t taste bad at a restaurant like this one. There’s a certain standard they should meet. Tasted like chlorine.

We went to Swan to celebrate our recent engagement and Sasha was amazing! She went out of her way to make us feel special and brought us French toast (complimentary) when the cinnamon rolls were unavailable. Great food and even better service!
