We sat outside. I thought it was a patio, but it was on the sidewalk. Luckily, part of the road was blocked off, but there were cars, pedestrians, etc. The inside looked cool, but eating outdoors these days ;)

All of the dishes were solid - great flavor, cooked to perfection. Definitely had a few more modern spins on traditional steakhouse fare such as the Calabrian chile and green garilc on the green beans. (Enough to get the flavor, not so much that it read hot/spicy). Watermelon salad had an amazing champagne sabayon and beautiful presentation. Also had an incredible French Onion soup, french fries, and the desserts... yum! Great selection of wines by the glass.

Great service and great food. The bone-in ribeye was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The mac and cheese and the mash was superb.

But what really made the night was the amazing service we received from our waiter. Granted I don’t recall his name but he was working the outdoor area. He deserves a raise!

Reservations do not mean much at this restaurant. You make a reservation 3 weeks in advance and they sit you in the bar explaining that other parties have reservations for the main dining room. Not sure what the purpose of a reservation is or using Open Table.

Enjoyed it all — watermelon salad was a perfect starter and sharing the beef wellington was a smart choice, the filet was cooked perfectly and the pastry was lovely and flakey. The dessert trolley was a fun way to end the meal. Service was attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend you make this a stop in Chicago.

Swift and Sons is my favorite Chicago steakhouse. Some of the dishes were a little heavy on salt this time, but still very good.

Oyster happy hour can’t be beat! Super fresh and delicious and the value is amazing. (Didn’t see it on the menu though.) We sat outside and stuffed ourselves on oysters and an app or two. Service was just the right amount and left us room to talk. Would totally do again.

Most amazing meal we have had in a while. We got the Wagyu 5 oz filet and the beef wellington. Both were beyond our expectations. We got seated in the bar area, which was a little noisy, but the food an service were amazing.

We went for happy hour on the patio. The food and service were great but all of the items ordered were brought together. Salad, apps, and entree instead of serving one course at a time.

I have been to Swift and Sons several times, but my most recent visit was not great. It took 15 minutes to be seated and then 10 minutes for our waiter to greet us. We ordered a bottle of wine, but it took 15 minutes to arrive (the wine arrived seconds before our appetizers). Our steaks were overcooked, however, our waiter never came back to check on us, so we couldn't bring it to his attention (see the picture of our "medium rare" steak). I do not know if it was a bad night, but the food and service were not at the level I have come to expect. Given the price point of the restaurant, this was a rather negative experience.

I had great expectations but the experience fell flat. My server had no personality or urgency to make sure that we were taken care of at all. We spent more time waiting for him to remember us than we did anything else. The food was fine but not more than that. Are bill was $250 but the experience did not reflect the investment.

Everything was perfect but the waiter did not check with us after the meal was served and then consistently took very long time to come to the table.

Sat outside on the new patio area and they turned the lights out on us at 11. So we had to sit there in darkness even though slow service was the reason we were there for excess of 2 hours.

Great service all around from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. The food was underwhelming. We came for happy hour and also enjoyed a few apps, and yet we still had an extremely high bill.

Very Poor Services 1) we were told that the "bar was closed and we could go somewhere else for drinks and return when our table was ready in 10mins but when we got seated next to bar area, it was open and people were drinking, so I asked our waiter why were we told it was closed, JoseH had no clue 2) the waiter never came back to fill our waters or asked if we needed anything else after our food came out 3) the music was WAY TOO LOUD so my date and I spend the entire time leaning over just to have a conversation, 4) my date ordered the special for the night which was the Wagyu Flight at $200.00 but it didn't taste well but they call themselves a High End steakhouse.

If you making reservations you have been warned, so making that reservation at your own risk, there are several "High End" restaurants in the Chicagoland area, Swift&Sons isn't one with the "inapt" customer service treatment we received Saturday, June 5th 2021 9pm

Second time dining at Swift & Sons - first time was a few years ago when they first opened. We sat outside in the new outdoor space to the west of the restaurant. The outdoor space vibe does not match the vibe of the inside which is more like early 19th century. The music that was playing was pop/rap so it was an odd combination? The food was delicious and the service was great. Would probably sit inside next time.
