I was staying at the Galt House meeting several friends in town for the weekend. We decided to have a kick off dinner at Swizzle and had a great dinner and experience. The only draw back was that the spinning sections of the restaurant weren’t working for some reason.

The food and service were very good. The cocktails, at least the one I got myself (had bramble in the name), could have been a bit better. Would definitely come back.

Not a huge fan of the food. Ambiance nice, drinks decent. I will come back for drinks only. My salmon was undercooked and when I was given another one it was over cooked. I honestly don’t think the salmon was fresh (probably frozen). Our server was nice. I am one not to complain. I love trying our local restaurants in the city. I recommend this for drinks only.

Just disappointed that the rotating seating was not working. It was one of the main reason we came from Lexington. It would have been nice to know prior to coming. We came to celebrate a birthday and she had never been so she was excited to experience it but didn’t get to do so. Our server Ramsey was outstanding and so was the manger. Ramsey will be the reason I return!

Beautiful views of the city lights and Ohio river from the 25th floor. Friendly and attentive service. DELICIOUS food. We had the carnivore plate. Top notch 5 stars. Free parking if you use the valet service. Try the bacon with apple butter appetizer it is the best.

Swizzle is by far our favorite date night destination! The ambiance is so nice, the waiters are by far the best in the city and the food is absolutely delicious! Our waiter Ramsy took care of our every need and did so with a polite and positive attitude, if you go, definitely ask for him!

The atmosphere was wonderful. Dim lights, very intimate and you dont know the floor is revolving. Being able to see the lights on the bridge to the night lights in the city the view was beautiful. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the drinks and the food on the menu.

Beautifully redesigned, great service and ambiance. My husband had the pork chop which was amazing! I went with the cheese ravioli, and it was okay. The pineapple upside down cake was delicious but a bit too sweet. Overall we had a great time, and will definitely be back.

Opening a new restaurant during the pandemic, the Galt House has not trimmed back on excellence. Attentive yet not overbearing service, excellent food and drinks, adequate spacing between tables for safety but close enough for ambience.

Always an incredibly enjoyable experience with numerous inventive cocktails to select! Must try the 1910 Old Fashioned served table side in a smoking box. Definitely ask for Ramsey as your server! We'll be back! #HighEndService #CelebratoryExperience

Went their for our anniversary amid COVID protocols. Staff very attentive to social distancing and mask wearing. Temps of guests even taken before being seated. We sat at a window table in the wheelhouse (rotating area) and even though it was a dreary evening due for rain, the views of the Ohio River were spectacular! Our waitress was excellent and gave us just the right amount of attention! Even free dessert for our anniversary. Then the manager of the restaurant gave us a gift card for a free night’s stay at the Galt House. Even though this restaurant is a little expensive, it is definitely not too pricey as far as high end restaurants go. We can’t wait to go back for another special occasion!

My husband and I were celebrating a date night and early 14 year anniversary. This was our first visit to Swizzle and it was well worth it. Ramsey provided excellent service and the food was absolutely delicious. The view and atmosphere were great too! We definitely recommend this restaurant and plan to visit it again.

Our reservation was going fine until we actually got our table. Upon arrival we were informed of a 25 minute wait. Fine, we went to Journeys on the 2nd floor and had a wonderful time. Our table was ready so we paid, tipped, then dipped.
We still had to wait a moment, but eventually were seated. Our waiter "cash" introduced himself as such then proceeded to rant about how badly he was tipped by a previous party...for like 6 straight minutes. We sat there for almost 3 hours laughing and talking, and snapping pictures all while attempting to flag down our waiter. Eventually we realized that our table was deliberately being ignored. Another patron also approached our table sharing their agreement of our poor service. I even call the manager to complain, and not one person came to my table. We were told by our waiter that he never put our orders in.
As we left I complained to Wess, the supposed manager, and all he said was ok.
We were stopped by a woman that told us to leave a review and handed us all cards. We opened them and realized she gave us a free night stay there. I guess good company mixed with horrible service equals a good outcome. We were disappointed, but we love each other so much that the negative energy seemed to be repelled. Just go to Journeys on the 2nd floor. Everyone there was awesome and the sangria was awsome!

We had a lovely time. The restaurant was busy and they were a little late (about 15 minutes past our reservation time) seating us but we didn’t mind as we were enjoying a cocktail from the bar. Every course was timed perfectly. We didn’t feel rushed. Our server Carl was fantastic. He made great suggestions that we thoroughly enjoyed. We will be back.

Everything was great, we were upgraded to a private room (we had a group of 10) and it was very quiet and fancy. John, our server, was extremely kind and polite and we loved him. The only issue we had was at the end of the night the restaurant lost one of our girl's take home meals and it took almost 20 minutes to get it resolved. They ended up giving her a gift card because they couldn't locate the meal...im assuming it went home in someone else's bag.

I told them It was a special occasion and I made reservations two weeks prior, We weren’t seated until an hour later. Even after we waited an hour past the reservation time, they didn’t give us the seating we requested and sat us at a random bar table that I am not sure why we needed reservations for in the first place. The waiter was inattentive, came by once or twice and I had to track him down for the check multiple times. Overall very bad experience.
