We can’t wait to welcome you back this season! Serving lunch and dinner daily, Swifty’s POOL will feature the same tasty fare and excellent service from the Swifty’s indoor dining room, but (fun twist!) Swifty’s POOL is outside under The Colony’s hanging garden with an al fresco bar that has live music and chic lounge seating. So if you want to dine outside, or if you desire a slightly more casual approach, Swifty’s POOL is for you. Original proprietor Robert Caravaggi is at the helm just as in ‘the good old days’, with Chef Stephen Attoe serving as consultant to Colony Executive Chef Tom Whitaker. So come, dive in to the POOL, and see what the fuss is all about. The Colony’s CPB restaurant will continue serving breakfast daily in the hotel’s lounge and on the outdoor patio.

**Parties of six or more require a non-refundable $100.00 credit card deposit at booking.
If the reservation is cancelled within 48 hours of the requested date, a refund will be issued.

From the beginning of the season until now the cauliflower main course has become an amazing dish. Three cheers for perfecting it!

You can’t beat coming to the Colony. Great ambiance and everyone is very nice. Food was great, service was lacking a bit but nothing a few drinks couldn’t fix.

The ambiance is exceptional and we really loved the cocktails. The food was also good, although perhaps a bit over priced for the quality. The staff in the lobby of the hotel was very rude, but our server at the table was wonderful. Overall, I'd go back for cocktails by the pool, it is a special experience.

We went on Easter. The food was great, but priced high. We expected that and were there more for the experience. We did expect great service. We ordered a Diet Coke initially. We asked for a refill and never got it, nor did we get refills on water. For a $200 lunch, we felt drink refills would be a given. The atmosphere was fun and enjoyable.

The Colony Hotel is a super fun spot, so Palm Beachy with its pink façade and pink and green interiors. Parking is easy with valet.

Hostess promptly seated us and was friendly and warm. The vibe by the pool is nice.

Food was yummy, drinks were fine. Price point is on the high end, but it is Palm Beach.

Really the only negative was the service. We never really could figure out who our waiter was, our service was uneven and it seemed liked we were neglected in favor of other tables? As a result, service overall was very slow..... we found ourselves waiting on many occasions.

It was a very beautiful evening in a lovely covered outdoor seating area by the pool. The service was very attentive, the food was good, and the atmosphere magically nostalgic. There was even a trio playing music poolside. We will definitely go back again but maybe not order as much food. It was expensive but then again it is Palm Beach.

Nice spot. The crowd is a bit obnoxious at least on the evening I was there. Had an 815 reservation and was not seated until almost 9 despite many empty tables. Was told it was a staffing issue.

Made an 1115 reservation as nothing else was open after that
Upon arriving there we see the restaurant almost empty may 2 or 3 tables
And when we left at 1215 at most the restaurant was at most half full
Why do that
It was a great effort to make 1115 when in fact there would have been no problem making it at 12
Was most upset
Ruined my whole day as i had to move thins around

We went on March 17th, expecting a lot of fun. VERY disappointed that there was NO Irish music played the whole night, they had a guitar player, he didn’t know ONE song!! The co owner had on a blue blazer and blue pants, while a lot of his guests were all dressed up in green blazers and lovely green dresses, just not the fun place that the Colony used to be at all on St. Patrick’s Day! Mr. Co-owner, I hope you read this.

The food was good, and the service very good, our waitress agreed with us about the music. I ordered a martini, straight up, you should have seen the glass I got, like a marguerita glass, just awful! Need to find another place next year!!!

I live a block from the old Swifty‘s in New York and we were sad to see it close so it was a lot of fun to dine at Swifty‘s in Palm Beach. The menu is lighter and very delicious, and I loved sitting by the pool.

Like a wonderful throwback to a class Americana 1950s resort with top notch food and service. Hours literally disappear and you drink in the rose and surroundings. Food was delicious. Service was efficient and friendly!

The food has major room for improvement. My shrimp tacos would have been better sourced at a taco bar.
They were cold and lacking in all respects. Fries good.
Service excellent
We all hope for a new executive chef.

The restaurant did not honor my Open Table reservation. I showed them the emails but they said due to a technical glitch, it did not get on their system. They then said there would be a ten minute wait. After a half hour, we ended up sitting at an outdoor bar. The were rude and defensive. Never apologized.

I had preordered and prepaid for a bottle of champagne to be waiting at the table to surprise and toast the couple we were with. Not only was it not at the table waiting for us but I had to get up two times to ask for it!! Then they were so unprofessional in serving it like they were doing us a favor! The service was so slow and not very professional and the food just fair. I would never go back and never recommend this place!
