This was a fantastic experience. Let me start with the (minor) cons:

Cons: Service was just a little on the slow side, steak wasn’t cooked medium rare as ordered, got a side I didn’t order

Pros: everything was still absolutely fantastic. View was incredible, ambience was perfect, cocktails were amazing. Even the bread was awesome. Our waiter was friendly and attentive. The side I didn’t order turned out to be delicious, and so was the steak.

Something important to note is that they weren’t offering reservations to their full seating capacity. So many restaurants are still understaffed but allow all the tables to fill up, almost guaranteeing poor service and overworked waitstaff. Swizzle made sure the restaurant experience was maintained as they navigate eased COVID restrictions.

Overall - absolutely loved this place and can’t wait to return!

my grandson and I decided to go to swizzles last night.service was excellent Kathy was very friendly and attentive..my grandson ordered the calamari as appetizer. he said it was not the best he has had but good..he would have liked it to have been a little browner and crisper .I thought the blt salad was a little heavy but tasty...they brought our steak and lobster and the lobster was perfect..nice size and cooked to perfection however the steaks were a little over cooked ...I ordered med and it was more med well and he ordered med rare and his was about med. but overall we had a great time. the restaurant is beautiful and comfortable....

We decided to try for the first time for my nephew’s 10th birthday. The server was nice, friendly and attentive. However, the food was a big disappointment. Everything was severely lacking in any seasoning and was very bland. All 4 of us had the filet. Other than one steak, the rest were over cooked. There was a small sprinkle of sea salt flakes on the steak and that was it for seasoning; it really needed more salt and pepper. The mashed potatoes and Mac n cheese also lacked flavor. The broccolini was okay, but I missed the Calabrian chili, as I couldn’t tell it was even added and it had way too much sun dried tomato. While the server was attentive, it was very obvious that 2 of us did not eat any of the filet. She never asked if there was anything wrong with it, just offered to box it up. I also did not like that as she cleared dirty dishes, she stacked the plate with food to take home on top of our dirty dishes. We wish we would have booked somewhere else as the food was so not worth it and for $250 we could have eaten anywhere else that would have been better. On the plus side our server did give my nephew a free birthday dessert and he ordered vanilla ice cream, which he liked. Overall we will not be back and I would not recommend. For the cost and atmosphere, there are so many better choices in the city. Very disappointed.

Service was good, food was amazing, cocktails could use some work. We had the bacon as an appetizer and were surprised to only get one slice of bacon and pay $14 for it.

This was going to be a special Dinner for my wife Granddaughter and myself, It took quite some time for us to be waited on but they eventually came to take our order, We started with some Appetizers The Calamari and Crab Cake Both where the worst we had ever eaten and we eat a lot of seafood. Now lets get to the Main course my wife ask the waiter for a recommendation and he recommended the Scallops I ordered the Salmon and my Granddaughter ordered the Cheese Ravioli. The Scallops were sent back as they were uneatable, The Salmon was cold and Dry and the potato's would have been ok but they were colder than the Salmon. The Cheese Ravioli was also cold and tasted like it was leftovers from days ago! We paid for our meal (Not the scallops) and went home! This food was HORRIBLE!!!!

We stopped here for a birthday celebration, and it was everything we could have hoped for. We had Brittany as a server, and she was amazing - very personable and fun. The cocktails were absolutely delicious and the food was amazing. Our steaks were slightly over-cooked to our likening, but overall we highly recommend this place.

The food made up for the absolute poor service and attentiveness to our table. For the amount of money you will be spending, you expect a better experience. Way too much fluff and unnecessary explanation of food and drink. I realize with post COVID issues with staffing, but restaurant was less than full and seemed to have a lot of employees walking around.

Brittney was an amazing server and gave us an anniversary prosecco toast to start our dinner! I was in the mood for a sangria that wasn't on the menu but she made it happen, and was very attentive. The sauce from the meatball appetizer was very basic but the actual meat in the meatballs was DELICIOUS, so worth it. everything else was great would definitely do special occasions here again

This is likely the most scenic restaurant in the city - great place to dine/grab a drink/go on a date. The quality of food, great service, elevated drinks and view are commensurate with the cost - it is upscale but worth the price for a unique experience with a superior view. Our waitress (Debra I believe - so sorry if I forgot the actual name) was great - wonderful suggestions, great demeanor, did not hoover but was always readily available. I would highly recommend this place for an upscale night out for food or a fancy place to grab a drink or three

Nice view of the riverfront but horribly overpriced. The service was fast for food but the drinks took forever. Our steaks came out over cooked. The kitchen was quick to remake them but offered nothing to make up for their mistake. Overall, probably nice for a drink and the view but go elsewhere for dinner.

You must visit Swizzle! This is my first review on open table, I cannot recommend this place enough! The food was incredible , but our server Brittany was over the top, absolutely amazing! She started off our night off outstanding with her friendly smile and great conversation, and to top it off they were out of our bottle of wine and she recommended an even better one for the same price. Thank you Swizzle and staff for a great night! We will be back if I can peel myself from the view from this booth!

Took two and one half hours to eat. Waited almost one hour just to get some water and bread. It was our 53rd wedding anniversary. I expected a lot better service and for the money I wanted to be waited on (taken care of). The manager who came to the table next to us looked like he just got off the golf course. The two men on the other side of us were drinking their wine directly out of the bottle. Just not the atmosphere I was expecting.
