Not impressed at all. Oysters were too salty, and grilled grouper was tasteless. The price of the food does not support the quality of it. Service was good. Overall, I wouldn’t go back.

Swan Never never disappoints! I tend to order the seafood boullabaise, and I had crab stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer. I remarked that the juice left on the appetizer plate makes me want to have a curtain-to lick it clean. Our server was Cheyenne , a most enthusiastic, energetic young lady. Maybe you will be fortunate to have her attending to you. Other features are a salad on a chilled plate ( the correct method), and the array of sides will leave you feeling sated. For desert I suggest the flour less chocolate cake. Bon appetit!!!

Mostly senior customers and the two old and miserable sitting across next to us were quite unhappy with our presence with young children, even couldn’t help themselves with a few remarks...
Beside that the food was great the service better than average but nothing special.
Will be back again

We had the lobster special which was excellent. We did like the corn that they did not have this time though, and the lobster was not cut as easy to eat as usual.

The setting is casual. This is an unpretentious restaurant with a wide choice of sea food. The meal itself received a thumbs up from all of us. The seafood enchiladas were outstanding. A large portion that has an exceptional taste with just the right amount of spice. My daughter had the muscles. Another winner. The wife had fish and chips and reported her satisfaction with the dish. Service was very satisfactory. One caution. There is not an extensive wine list. Very mundane choices. The restaurant also has a seafood retail operation that would make you want to take a shopping bag of your favorites home.
All together, great find in Naples .

Overall experience was not as prior visits. Food not as well prepared and portions reduced , new service staff not as professional . Overall experience does not compare well with prior visits. Will give it another shot , hoping it was an off day for the restaurant. Will not recommend unless you improve to prior levels.

As always Swanlake was a pleasure to visit and eat dinner at. The day before, I called with a special request. I was taking a friend that fractured her jaw and everything she eats must be liquified. I asked them to ask Juan (the Chef) if he could accommodate putting a soup on a blender. We ordered our food and the blended soup. My friend loved it. She has never been there before and now she is a new fan of Swanlake. All the food is absolutely delicious.

Our server and the food were excellent. Unfortunately, people were seated too close to us for comfort especially during the Covid crisis. A couple seated immediately behind us were both sneezing! Swan River should reduce occupancy out doors by a few tables to protect their staff and the guests.

The new owners have changed the menu, ambiance, value and we do not like it as much as the previous owners had this place. We note some of the long time waiters are gone, no apple sauce, still not angle hair pasta, salads with means are about half the size of the old ones, etc, The new owner took a fabulous restaurant, spent a lot of money remodeling and ended up with less of a facility. It is no longer one of our best like restaurants. Boo Hoo.

Truly fantastic seafood in a casual but trendy setting. "Casual" is the only reason I didn't give it five stars on ambiance because some people equate five stars with either uber-trendy or uber-elegant. This is casual and nautical. You don't need to wear expensive label clothes to dine here. Back to the food--the side dishes are great. Love the blistered carrots and the innovative cold salad of Beets And Sweets (if you're a beet lover). The house salad is great--get the basil dressing. Serious yummy! Fish is always The Best. But the bouillabaisse--ooh, la-la! Though the husband loves the shrimp and pasta. Great food, great bartenders and wait staff. A real local gem.

We went there because we received a gift certificate.
We have been there several times in the last several months and we always come back! I ordered the crab cake dinner and it was fabulous!! My husband ordered the swordfish and he loved it. We ordered the apple dessert with ice cream to share and we very happy! Our waitress was very attentive.
