    Service was horrible. Completely understand waiting due to lack of staff or backed up kitchen, but the server himself was rude. Dissapeared for over an hour. Had to go to the bar to get our own drinks. Usually have great experience, but this time, not good at all. Another table came in after us when it slowed down and had the same experience.

    The service was outstanding! Kind and attentive service from our waiter, greeter, manager, and support staff from beginning to end. The fries were excellent and you must try the French onion soup! But sadly, I was disappointed with the Steak and Provolone dip. The bread was soft and tasteless, it wouldn't hold the sandwich together even before it was dipped into the au jus sauce. The steak was fatty and had very little flavor, much like shredded baloney. It is a bit pricey for bar food. However, for the ambiance, it is nearly unbeatable - right across for the Wrigley Field Marquee!

    Don't mistake this for Swift & Sons in Fulton Market: there's no relationship. If you want oysters & perhaps a burger, maybe. But it's not a full service restaurant. They should take the steaks off the menu and stop pretending to be a full service restaurant. Service was terrible. We sat for 15 minutes before we were approached for drinks. It took another 15 minutes for them to arrive. The waiter didn't come back to ask if the drinks were ok, did we want anything. We'd been there an hour by the time dinner actually arrived. He never checked with us to see if the good was ok or if we needed anything. The cheese plate had 3 pieces of blue, 3 pieces of Gouda. The Gouda was mostly rind. The "everything" crackers were stingy & a bit soggy. The mashed potatoes looked like & were the texture of grits. The steak was rare rather than medium, and lacked seasoning. Creamed spinach was ok. The manager had to bring my glass of wine so I could have it with my meal. Another manager heard our comments. She apologized for the poor service and food and cut the bill in half. She also gave us a $50 gift certificate so we'd come back. We used it that night, because we won't be back. Parking is very inconvenient too. The restaurant told us to park in the hotel. We did, & discovered we had to walk outside for a block to get to the restaurant. I don't recommend this place.

    I thought it was good the server was very nice but needed to learn more about the steaks they have. The steaks themselves were very good cooked to perfection. I think they need to refine the dining experience given the price point of the menus

    Really odd experience making a reservation for the Golden Oyster event. On Instagram and on Swift & Sons' own website, the event info was concise: Oysters for $1.50, sparkling rose for $8, and every 100 oysters shucked included 1 golden oyster which entitled the customer to their bill covered up to that point - 4:30pm - 10pm. I made a reservation for 6:30pm following the event link on Instagram, but when I arrived, my server said that the special oyster pricing ended at 6:30pm. She was very nice and looped in the manager right away, and the manager just kept reiterating that what I read (and showed her on my phone) was NOT the price, and eventually said they'd honor that price for a dozen or two. It was just a really weird feeling that I was putting them out for pricing THEY advertised in multiple places. I kind of wish I had just left at that point, but instead I felt guilty for being a cheaper bill and ordered some sides I really didn't want.

    Came here for a date. Got seated in the upstairs bar area which was cozy enough. Customers in the main dining area had a great view of Wrigley Field so that's pretty neat. Started off with a dirty martini with the bleu cheese olives which was good, although it could have been a bit stronger. Then we had oysters - they brought more than we ordered, no big deal. The oysters were average. The horseradish was more of a liquid than a paste, and hot sauce (no Tabasco available) was requested. We also had a wedge Caesar to share which was fresh, crisp and pretty tasty. It came with a strip of bacon which is always welcome! My date had a filet mignon, ordered medium-well. It came out rarer than rare. We sent it back and it took longer than we expected to come back to our table. When it came back, it was cooked correctly. I ordered a NY strip medium-rare and it was closer to rare but I did not send it back as it was tolerable. It also could have been seasoned more evenly. The mashed potatoes side had a good consistency and was seasoned a bit on the bland side but overall good, and the roasted broccoli was very good, as it came with a spicy cheese (?) sauce and bacon. I had a house red (Pinot Noir) which was really good, smooth and mellow. Dessert was probably the best course of the meal - apple cake (not pie) with soft serve vanilla ice cream. The coffee we ordered was lukewarm and we sent it back, hotter coffees came back. Based on the steak and coffee errors, I decided I was going to tip less than 20%. However, when our server brought the bill she told us the steak would be comped. The dessert and coffee were also comped. This service to us saved the day and based on that I would recommend Swift & Sons for the food, ambiance, and service. As competent service is harder and harder to find, when you experience very good service it goes a really long way.

    This is my first bad review ever and I would not have suspected it from a Gage group restaurant. The only positive was the server and staff. However the food was lacking in: 1) taste/flavor 2) portion size relative to price 3) preparation. Three basic points about choosing a restaurant. Would not recommend. Disappointed.

    Went for brunch before a tour of Wrigley Field. Service was great. Food was even better. We shared an order of cinnamon rolls. Yum! Probably the best cinnamon rolls I’ve ever had. Slightly doughy inside and slightly crunchy outside, topped with cream cheese frosting. I had the Avocado tartine which I’m still dreaming about, and the others in our group had a variety of things from a hamburger to French toast sticks. All good. I’ll be back!

    My daughters and I felt sick after eating at this restaurant. The spinach dip was way too spicy. My steak was very tough and barely ate it and not up to the same standard as the other swift and son in the west loop. My salad was good and my daughter liked the oysters. For what we paid, I was disappointed in the food and service. NOT even close in quality to the west loop Swift and Sons which is amazing!

    They had a smaller menu than they’ve had other times I have gone for dinner or brunch. All of the “main” options under sandwiches and salads had red meat except the wedge salad. I ended up getting a steak salad with no steak and added chicken but it didn’t really go well together. I was disappointed in the lack of options.
