Located across from Director’s Park in the Paramount Hotel, this dual concept engages all the regions of the palate. Swank Restaurant polishes the ruggedly natural aspects of the Pacific Northwest into precisely crafted plates for daily breakfast, lunch, and dinner offerings. Locally sourced ingredients also make an appearance in the house crafted cocktails and west coast wine selections.

Just across the lobby, Swine Moonshine and Whiskey Bar explores the history of the American whiskey tradition, complete with a reclaimed authentic still and extensive whiskey list. Early and late happy hours keep people sipping all night long.

I came in to celebrate my wife’s birthday. The wait staff repeatedly forgot orders from people at my table. They forgot drinks, and desserts for different people at my table. When I ordered my food, I ordered medium-rare. My food came out well-done. Sent it back. Got my food 20 minutes later. Food was actually really good once it came, but honestly, I was fed up by that point. This was probably the best food I will never consider eating again.

These are two venues in the lobby of the cute Paramount Hotel. Swine is a bar/lounge, Swank is a restaurant with fireplace, big windows and minimalist decor (the hard surfaces make it pretty noisy). The staff were very friendly and helpful, and our food (Shrimp Louie and the house burger) was excellent. Their mimosas were smooth and tasty, and the "bottomless" option quite a bargain!

Ended up here on accident (another restaurant had a much longer wait), and we could not have been happier. Yes, it is a bit more expensive compared to some others in the area, but the food is really well thought out and very delicious, portion sizes are perfect, and the ambiance is really great. Was only in Portland for a short time, but would go back if I am ever in the area again.

We’ve been coming here for a long time, and something just hasn’t seemed the same for the last year. We used to think you had THE BEST breakfast in town, but a lot of the little touches are gone. Those little free donuts seem to no longer be given, the Ham & Cheese omelette could have been from Elmer’s, etc etc. It’s not bad, it’s just not as good as it used to be...

We reserved a table at Swank and Swine specifically for their steak dish. Unfortunately, an entire party before us ordered steak leaving none left for us to order. Therefore,
we did not stay for dinner. Hostess was very apologetic. The survey would not allow me to proceed without rating each category which is why all ratings were low.

Swank is the restaurant we at in on a quiet Sunday eve with pleasant service and good food. Three in ur party of five gave the steelhead five stars. short ribs and duck got fours. Swine is the cozy bar nearby and ideal for a pre-dinner drink or a nightcap. Easy to find just a block off Broadway.

We went for dinner before going to listen to a speaking event which started at 8:00 pm. Our reservation was at 6:15. We were seated immediately and ordered some cocktails. The waiter came by to see if we wanted to order when we got our cocktails. We told him we were going to an event, and after checking g his watch, he said we had time and would come back in ten mins. He came back and we ordered. At about 7:20 or so, we started wondering where our food was as we only had about 20 minutes to eat it. We asked about our order and was told the kitchen was a little backed up and should come out shortly. One of the managers came by and explained the the situation again but had comped our dinner. The food came about 7:30. We quickly ate it, which was excellent tasting, paid for our cocktails and made it to our event.

We have been to this restaurant on several occasions and always had a great experience.

Beautiful flavors and presentation of drinks and dinners. She had the Wild Salmon Tortellini, I had Mary’s Farm Chicken. Service was a bit slow getting started, the wait staff might have included one more given the number of tables to be served. But our foods arrived timely and steaming hot, so we got to our show on time. The owner was very interested in our enjoyment of the restaurant and checked in with us and other diners. Nice touch.

Very poor service, left waiting for drinks we’d ordered for over 20 minutes, also had to request the complimentary donuts.

They did take the drinks off the bill which was nice

We booked on the recommendation from a past guest who said they had the best pork (being a namesake).

Two odd observations:
1) there was no pork on the menu, except one dish which was unavailable this night.

2) We went at 7 p.m. on a Wednesday. And while that may not be a huge traffic time, there was literally no one else in the restaurant the entire time we ate. 🤷🏼‍♂️

Our server was not very attentive: she walked away in the middle of taking our drink order so half of our group didn't get a chance to order their drinks the first go around, we had to ask for refills on hot water for our tea as she never asked if we needed a refill, and dishes from the first course were not taken away prior to our main entrees coming out. Our main entrees were served sporadically amongst our group and it took several minutes for the last dish to finally be served. And, the food was one-dimensional and mediocre at best.

Our party of 6 had a fabulous first experience at Swank & Swine. Service was great. The atmosphere was perfect, loved the decor. we all tried something different and enjoyed everything. The cheese plates are a must have. We'll definitely be back.

They weren’t open even though we got there almost 2 hours before closing and Open Table wouldn’t let us cancel the reservation to make one at a different location, the app said we had to call the restaurant. Well the restaurant was closed so we were stuck. Terrible experience.

The food was really hit or miss. The Chicken and Pork dumplings and the cheese plates were outstanding but the main dishes of rockfish pozole and duck were both very underwhelming. The duck fat was overly chewy and the fish was so pungent i couldnt taste much else on the plate. The dish sounded great on paper but in reality I couldnt finish the plate.

We had an amazing experience! I had made an online reservation for Swank for my fiance’s birthday. The morning of our dinner, I got a call from Josh, the manager, letting me know that Swank would be closer that evening but if we still wanted to come to Swine, he’d take good care of us. He definitely delivered and hooked us up with a cheese plate as soon as we arrived and a dessert on the house. We were treated so well, the food and drinks were fantastic and we enjoyed the vibe. We will definitely be back and will tell everyone about our positive experience!

Awful, worst experience in my 59 years of dining out. Server was surly, had disdain for my reply when asked how our meal was. Wow. One server for the entire dining room? Won’t last long at this level. Dessert was not described on menu accurately or by the server. My meal had three scallops on the plate. The other half of plate was bare, looking down at the expanse if white stoneware when served.... I wanted to laugh. Do not eat here.

The food was really good but every item was trying to be “trendy” sometimes at the detriment so we were turned off of a few menu items that were trying to do too much. But what we did order was delicious. The service wasn’t great but that seems to be a bit of a norm in most of Portland. The restaurant is super cute though!!

Great flavors in both the soup and the entree. Wine by the bottle and not just the glass should be offered.
