Thank you to Open Table for having Swirl Wine Bistro on its site. The restaurant is such a find!
The owner is unbelievably knowledgeable about meal and wine pairings and his wife, the amazing chef, prepared one of the finest dishes I have ever eaten!
Although the restaurant is not near other entertainment, it is a stand alone and well worth the experience. This was our first, but definitely not our last meal at Swirl Wine Bistro.

Honestly can't say enough nice things about this place. This was our second time having dinner here and we are planning to go back with friends. Very special place. The food, service and ambiance are 10/10(imo). I reserved and table for 2 via openTable and left a note with some request to my surprise the owner read it and met our accommodations perfectly we were very happy and had a wonderful time. I ordered the wagyu beef on polenta and wanted a Sauvignon blanc or zinfandel but the owner graciously made another recommendation that paired perfectly with my meal. I appreciated how he treated us with respect. Often times at fine dinning places I can sense that we aren't often treated nicely because we look young and maybe people assume we won't tip well or something ...even though we have 4 kids and have been married for 14 years lol ...we are coming back and talking our special place. Thank you to the waitress who help us that night find the perfect desert forgive me that I didn't remember your name you were very kind.

We’ve been here a few times and have always enjoyed our meal. Unfortunately, last night was somewhat disappointing. I ordered the plantain crusted snapper which I was really looking forward to, but I was disappointed. The fish was covered in a hard crust that appeared more like a chicken cutlet than fish. I didn’t get the taste of plantain and the fish was lost in the heavy coating. My husband did enjoy the jerk chicken which is a regular menu item.

Thank you for your feedback. As you have indicated you have dined with us before and have had a pleasant experience. We are disappointed that during your visit, that you did not point out to us that you were not pleased with the meal. As you graciously informed us that the initial wine taste you received was not to your liking, we did replace it with another to your desire. We would have happily done the same with your dish. We hope to see you again soon so we can give you an improved visit.

Nice little spot for intimate settings. Took my friend for a birthday and enjoyed ourselves. The meal was perfect as well as the staff/owner who served us on this special evening. I will definitely be returning to this place. It's a hidden gem in a plaza off of Lyons Road but definitely worth going.

Great food and service. Price per plate is high (but doesn’t disappoint) ,.. but it contrast wine is priced low/well. Let him pair the wine with your food ,.. we did and we were not disappointed.

This place is one of a kind! The owners are so friendly and really take the time to make sure you enjoy every single thing about your experience. The food is utterly fantastic, the ambiance is quaint and eclectic and the wine pairings are excellent, as well. We have been here a number of times now and it never disappoints. I’m so thankful they made it through COVID and are still around because there literally is no place else like it. Highly recommend!

Not what we expected and not in a good way. Very few tables with a mixed decor. Not sure what branding he was going for. Asia meets Jamaica meets Napa? Not exceptional in food or service. Very warm inside which made the entire 2 plus hours longer than it was. Food is good but not $200 good and small portions make the price tags more unreasonable. Very rich and heavy with truffle oil to make things more fatty than needed.. Appetizer was average. Not completely warm and not more than we do at home. Nice guy but what ever niche they are going for doesn't work. Location, decor, service, food, and prices all need an adjustment. Oh and the Bathroom was a sauna.

Last minute decision to try based on a friends recommendation. Good wine, great food! Tried 3 appetizers, wanted more but got too full. Oysters very fresh, short ribs prepared differently than run of mill and were very nice. Was a little quiet for a Wednesday night, hope they get some support because it’s a nice find.

Great place we just discovered, been there 4 years, so they have staying power. This was our first meal out since the pandemic started, and it was a great choice.

This was a small place with maybe about 30 seats, and the owner Mike adds a very personal touch, being extremely knowledgeable about his interesting wine list.

We mostly shared a mix of starters, which we love to do when we find a new place. The octopus flatbread and beef carpaccio were fabulous.

We had the oxtail ravioli for main course, and it was very tasty.

We will definitely be going back

This is the type of local neighborhood restaurant that should be strongly supported. The food was excellent and the service exhibited true hospitality. My wife and I tried the bruschetta, shrimp and tostones, oxtail ravioli, and carrot cake. Each plate was prepared with great detail and lots of flavor. The wine suggestions made by our server and by the owner paired well with each dish. We’re looking forward to going back soon for more great food and wine served up by the amazing husband and wife team that own this awesome place.

This was our second visit to swirl. I have been in the restaurant business for over 45 years, most of it fine dining.

The talent in this kitchen is outstanding. This is truly a hidden gem. I wish them the best and hope they can find a new location soon.

We are looking forward to returning to Swirl ASAP!

Another fantastic evening at Swirl. Mike chose a great CA Cabernet for us. We shared small plates and an entree. We enjoyed the grilled Caesar salad, AMAZING bruschetta, shrimp & tostones, and filet mignon Oscar. Each dish was better than the last. We loved everything.

Mike creates a warm, but chill environment in this small space. As usual, we laughed and chatted with other guests and we thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and music. Our server, Misha was attentive and engaging, grateful to have spent time with her.

If you live near Coconut Creek and love great food, this is the place for you. Now is the time to get back out and support family run, Chef-owned restaurants — Swirl should be your first stop.

Swirl Wine Bistro serves delicious food with a very relaxing vibe. Interesting take on hand rolls with a homemade chili sauce that was excellent; The seafood risotto was out of this world and the oxtail ravioli was a clever take on one of my favorite meats.
