We had a great night at S&S. The service was impeccable. Food and drinks were delicious while overpriced. A great place for a special occasion.

Excellent dinner, and they brought us champagne for our anniversary. A little too loud for me, but not terrible.

Best of the best. High quality in everything. We had a big group, so we had a lot of different items. None were less than amazing. Great choice for our company outing.

After carefully researching and reading reviews, I had higher expectations than what I experienced. The arugula salad was too heavily dressed. For a steakhouse, I expect an excellent steak: at the table you could not distinguish the rare from the medium rare. The filet seemed dry. The mushroom sides were too salty and the bean side was over cooked. The sommelier was good. Atmosphere is noisy but fine. Service was ok but a bit salesy.

Only if they are in the main dining area. I have been may times and this was the first time we were not in the main dining area and ambience was terrible.

Amazing experience. Food and service were both top notch. There might be restaurants as good, but nothing is better. We were celebrating our anniversary and every person who walked by our table made the night and meal feel special by wishing us a Happy Anniversary. It's great to be in a restaurant with hundreds of other people but feel like you are the only couple there.

We head to Swift & Sons whenever we want a great meal with fantastic service. The steaks there are delicious, and we love adding bone marrow or the seared foie gras. For appetizers, we always order the carpetbagger oysters and also love the king crab legs. The service is attentive, but never annoying- and always friendly. LOVE this place and the people there!

The King crab legs were fantastic. The wine list is exceptional. The steak was not the best I’ve had (Bone-In Ribeye), but it satisfied my craving for beef. The sides were decent. We ordered the green beans and the corn casserole. Ambience and decor was perfect. Very swanky...perfect for a date night and when work is paying! I recommend!

Some of the best service we’ve ever had. The team was so attentive, they seemed to know what we wanted before we even did. The food was excellent. The Beef Wellington for two was decadent, but it was a special occasion. Very nice space, the area is very congested with a lot of construction in the area.

Excellent service and solid food -- although TBH, I'm not sure their steak offerings are much different from many of the other high-end steak houses around town. Our waiter was on point and brought a complimentary birthday cake out for our occasion -- but the courses were brought very quickly and didn't leave much time for conversation around the table. For a night out like this, part of the fun is spending time with friends and not rushing things.

I'd still recommend this place -- just some minor things they could fix.

Disppointing. Got Surf & Turf, tiny portion of lobster, cap steak was good. Hubby enjoyed his big rib-eye, cooked to his liking. Oysters were excellent but again a tiny portion. Desserts were okay, nothing special. Service ok but not outstanding. There must be.better options.for.such a steep price.

The service was excellent, however when it came to our meal we were very disappointed with the steaks. The steaks arrived and immediately we noticed they smelled burnt. We each took a bite and yes they were burnt on the outside on one side. The inside was cooked as ordered, but they must have left the steaks on one side for too long. All of the sides, appetizers, etc were delicious though.

Great dinning spot. Excellent food and terrific attentive service. The appetizers and sides are large portions suitable for two people. The steaks were wonderful, flavorful and cooked to perfection. We were celebrating an anniversary and they comped the desert we chose. We will certainly return.
