Excellent, attentive service, high quality food and fairly priced. Plus, can't go wrong with those bottomless mimosas! Will be back.

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.

Attentive and friendly service with innovative, palate-pleasing takes on NW cuisine. Not too crowded or noisy. What a gem!

Great meal! Creative items on the menu but they’re not too avant garde. Really nice ingredients. Nice but not too upscale. Great service.

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.

The service was extremely slow. There were very few tables in the restaurant. Our Drink / app order was forgotten, and we had to place it twice.

The food tasted very good.

I always tell people from out of town that the level of food in Portland is just high across the board and you're unlikely to have a BAD meal. I finally get to eat my words on that. We've been to Swine before and weren't over the moon about it so figured we would try Swank this time. The atmosphere is nice and it wasn't crowded - but holy cow, talk about slow service. It was a good 20 minutes before my wife and I got our drinks and an hour before we got our dinner. At which point, I realized the steak was actually just a vessel to deliver pepper. Seriously, I've probably never eaten a dish that had so much pepper ground on top of it. I thought maybe I'd done something to offend the server and I was being pranked. Unfortunately, since it had already taken so long and we were potentially going to be late for our show - I didn't send my dish back. If ever there is a time it's warranted - it's a $35 plate of ground pepper. I can think of very few times I've had a meal that was over $100 for two people and I had remorse as soon as I saw the bill - but this is one of those times. Definitely won't return to either place - even if the staff are friendly.

Appetizer forgotten than food came up at the same time and sat = cold food. Not a big deal if you acknowledge it, at all. Server never came back and by the end didn’t even speak to us. It was super weird and we are very easy going diners. Strange.

I was unable to check out the Swine part but I do know that you can not transfer tabs between the two. The food on the menu did not match the online menu but it was good. The portion size and quality wasn't worth the price. The Burger and salads were the best meal for the quality and portion size.

This was our 2nd year having Mother’s Day Brunch, I recommend making the food hotter. The eggs and potatoes were a bit on the cold side even though there were burners underneath the units.

We had quite a variety of menu items and everything was amazing. Our server provided great recommendations. The cannelloni and beet dishes were especially tasty as well as pork belly plate. The Paramount cocktail very good and refreshing. Good wine selection. Highly recommend Swank & Swine. Thank you for a great evening.

We had a reservation for Sunday brunch. We were instantly seated which was nice, however, they were incredibly understaffed. There was only one waitress for the entire area. We ordered bottomless mimosas. We had to wait 20 minutes before receiving our glass after having to remind her. She told us she would come back frequently to re-fill our bottomless, but almost never did. It reached a point where she was never checking in our table, so we had to ask a busser for help. We needed water and to order food, but it appeared that nobody was coming. The food was mediocre at best. Save your time and money and just go somewhere else for boozy brunch.

We loved the ambiance and cool decor. Very easy to relax here. The servers were fairly attentive but the food was slow. We ordered the chicken and waffles and felt it needed mire flavor it was just “ok”. And we also had the baked eggs which needed more salt and the flat bread was hard to chew.
Overall nice ambiance, but I’d go for dinner and not brunch.

I truly enjoyed my experience! They were conscious enough to ask if we had show tickets and when we would need to be done! I am quite particular with my wine and the manager did a brilliant job listening to what I like and don’t like! I told him I hated Chardonnay and why I didn’t like it. After listening to my requests he came back with three wines and ask me to taste them without know what they were. The middle one was a Chardonnay which I knew immediately but it was DELICIOUS! It was like no other Chardonnay I’ve had and that was the one I chose! Well done! I will definitely be back!
