As always, a stellar experience. Chef Judith's food is a treat for the palate. If you ever thought you didn't like wine, or what wine you could like, Mike has all you answers.

A gem in a small strip shopping center. We started out with lamb meatballs which were full of flavor. We had the duck and also the scallops/shrimp dish. Both were excellent dishes with generous portions. Ended the night with lava cake with homemade ice cream. We will definitely be back.

The venue is small so suggest you make a reservation. M

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Small, tucked away in a small shopping plaza. Food was amazing! Small portions but, enough for one (i.e. not enough to split with someone else). Ordered a bottle of wine which was also very good, different than what you see at other places. Dessert was also very unique and good. Overall, we had a great experience and would plan to go back.

What a find. I would give Swirl Wine Bistro a 10!!! The food, a fusion of Jamaican and Soul was incredible. The wine pairings perfect. The small neighborhood bistro vibe reminded me of my hometown Philly and of New York. The staff friendly and engaged. You may wait a longer for your meal because everything is cooked from scratch, but just relax, enjoy the music and have a second glass of wine or beer. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Clearly, at the top of our restaurant list in Broward County!!!!

It’s impossible to have a bad experience at Swirl. The food is extraordinary. Everything on the menu is amazing. Last night we enjoyed grilled shrimp and tostones with tasty sauces, plated beautifully. The grilled octopus salad with warm polenta cake is delicious, creamy inside and crisp outside— with an amazing aioli. Finally, we shared the duck. I’ve never eaten duck before Swirl... Chef Judith’s plating with pumpkin risotto and cider Demi glacé was fantastic.

The best part is that Mike selected a wine for us after we told him what we were sharing. The reasonable Italian red he selected was wonderful with the food. We can’t wait to go back. This is FINE DINING and genuine hospitality in Coconut Creek.

A great little surprise. When you approach the building you don't expect what you get. The food and service was incredible. The chef's attitude toward serving only the best is clear from your choice of wine through to your choice of dessert. There is a lot of heart and you can tell. I will definitely be returning.

This restaurant is absolutely a hidden gem. The food was absolutely incredible. The owner/operator was amazing. If I had to describe the feeling I had while sitting there, it was like being at a family member’s house...and that family member makes amazing food. We sat and talked and enjoyed every moment. We will definitely return.

This was our first visit from out of town based on an Open Table rating and other reviews. A small neighborhood gem that is hard to find in a shopping center that is a turn off. You enter another world once inside. Dark hues and art on the walls, maybe ten tables and a bar at the back with the happiest man alive polishing the glasses. You can tell that this place is the owner's dream and glad to be away from the drudgery of corporate life. Do not misunderstand, Michael is very experienced and well trained in restaurant operations. While Michael runs the front end and pairs the wines with the outrageously good food, his wife, the chef, is the real star. The wines were various and well selected as were the price points. Plenty is available by glass, but after the first one, it makes sense to order up the full bottle. But the food; go for the food. This is a restaurant best experienced in a small group that wants to sample and share numerous dishes. We started with the flat The octopus, which is served two ways, is among the best ever. They first steam it and then grill or saute it, depending on the dish to ensure that it stays moist and not chewy. Mission accomplished. We opted for the octopus flat bread. The crust was crisp, the octopus tasty and hot and the bread never got soggy. The grouper tacos were delicious, with the fish moist and flavorful. So, too, were the pork belly tacos. Our only complaint was the heat was a little too high and that detracted from the flavor of the pork. The duck was a home run with a sauce that demanded attention without interfering with the well prepared meat of the duck. All in all, anytime we are in the area, this is a must destination. Be sure to ask Michael to tell you his story!

It was OK. The owner/waiter tried to serve 6 people at once. Food came out in 2,1,2,0. Yes, that adds up to five out of six. Food was ok albeit cold. Really tough and tried to like this place but will not come back. Think Waffle House type seating in cheap chairs and tables charging upside pricing.

Based on raves to my daughter about the great experiences we had at Swirl.
, she threw my wife and I a surprise 40th anniversary party there. The food was served family style and included our go-to favorites and several entrees that were new to us. As I mentioned in an earlier review, one dish was better than the next, all delicious. The wine selections paired with the food fabulously and everyone enjoyed themselves. Oh yes, forgot to say that Mike closed the restaurant down on a Saturday night for our party! Hospitality is an art!

Almost every review indicates that Swirl is a "Hidden Gem"; I am here to verify both. It is hidden and it is a gem. My wife and I went to dinner there on Friday for the first time based on the reviews in Open Table. It was the first time but won't be the last. Firstly, they honored the reservation(unlike Bonefish Grill in Coral Springs !). Mike, the owner, was friendly and very helpful in explaining the menu and selecting a delicious wine(very knowledgeable). We shared the fish tacos, grilled vegetables and mushroom tart; one more tasty than the other. My wife enjoyed the entire experience so much that she has somehow fit the Swirl in conversations that she has had with everyone she spoke with. Happy wife happy life. Happily looking forward to our return to the Swirl; in short order!

This was an unbelievable find in a very obscure and under developed shopping center. Absolutely worth the trip. The food was outstanding and I am still tasting the cheese tart. Mike welcomed us and told us about the history and vision of the place and I think he’s got it down beautifully. Calm but hip music, lovely comfy setting, and wine by the glass you can’t get at many places! I had a Ribeiro del Duero, and it was perfect with the sea bass. Amazing chef!
