It was disappointing to have such indifferent service at what should be a top tier restaurant. Our server could have cared less. He was rarely seen and we needed to hunt him out twice to get service. Our drink order was very delayed and when we inquired with him about it, he NEVER said I am so sorry, let me see what I can do - Oh No - he just looked at us and said "not my problem, I do not control it" Honest that is what he said - and then walked away. He made what should have been a great evening out just ho-hum. We will not be coming back soon.

Great find! The ambiance and decor are very cool. It was a relaxing meal with excellent service. Try the Baked Egg dish for something different. It was fabulous!

This was a Valentine’s Day dinner a night early for me and my wife. Our server was attentive, but didn’t hover. The ambience was great considering noise level, lighting, and interior design. Drinks were delicious, though we didn’t try anything unique. We started with the sides of beets and carrots and were pleasantly surprised at how delicious they were; nearly a plate on their own. We asked for them to be served before our meal and the timing was just right. I had salmon and my wife had scallops and we cleaned our plates like we hadn’t eaten before. I would recommend this for casual dining or a date.

I visited on a Monday evening for a post work meal. It was quiet with a dim lighted ambience. Service was great and the food was great, especially the Swank Burger! Would definitely recommend.

We spent the night at the Paramount Hotel on Saturday night and had dinner at Swank & swine. We had excellent service and the food was delicious and unexpectedly creative. I will highly recommend Swank and swine to others

An overall pleasant experience, good for a pre-Symphony dinner. The food was a mixed bag. Scallops were excellent with nice mix of flavors; the burger was mediocre. Wine selection was not as good as expected for such a wine-centric city.

Offered a fireplace seating even though we arrived 30 minutes early for our reservation. Thank you, the fireplace made our date night magical and romantic. Great ambiance and wonderful whiskey flights!

The food was excellent but service was slow. Our waitress seemed to forget about us and two tables seated well after us received their food before us. We arrived to an empty restaurant at 5:30 and it stook 40 min to get our food.

Baked eggs were bland and unseasoned and served with cold naan with bland avocado spread. Waitress mixed up the o her order at the table and couldn’t remember our drink order. Unimpressed.

Quiet place for brunch or lunch. Great bar. Eggs Benedict was fantastic. Chicken and waffles not so much. The waffles were great, but the chicken was rather flavorless.

All enjoyed their beverages and entree. We went there for meal before a show at Newmark. We were all very impressed with the overall experience. Only downside was no GreyGoose vodka..but no worries. Next time, we will try the Swine also. Keep up the good work!!

Limited menu service started out well then fell apart. One hour 35minutes for entree .
Had to ask to get plates cleared and had to ask for dessert menu.
Never ordered a dessert because waiter never came back.
To bad because it's close to the theater.
The bathroom the restaurant guest have to use was really in need of housekeeping.
No valet parking for restuarant either.

We needed a place to go last minute for Thanksgiving and thought Swank and Swine’s menu looked great. The food was ok, the service was painfully slow, and we all came home feeling hungry. Maybe they were short staffed because it was a holiday?

We had a party of 5, two of us ordered the waygu beef, the beef was grizzly, potatoes had no flavor. We let the waiter know but he offered no assistance or alternative meal. One of us had a good meal but we were disappointed with the others. Desert was good although the chocolate mousse was very gritty and not smooth as expected. The location and ambiance was nice, kind of a pain that bathrooms were located downstairs so you had to
Take an elevator.

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!
