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.

Wonderful meal and special Mother’s Day Dinner! Our table was ready and we were able to be seated early. Dinner choices for the whole family and beautiful presentation and delicious food made for a memorable Mother’s Day experience! We would love to dine there again!

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!

Very slow service. It took at least 30-40 minutes to order our wine. After the bottle was over half gone, our order was taken. At that point, the restaurant was out of several items. Everything was slow. Even took forever to get a dessert menu (I didn’t order after realizing the time). Food was decent. Mixed green salad a little spicy and dressing over-powered. The dumplings were tasty, but actually meatballs meant to be eaten as lettuce wraps. Rockfish was very flavorful.

Horrible service. Had an early reservation as we had a show at the Schnitz later. The hostess even asked us about going to the show. Our order was finally taken about 20 minutes after being seated. Our first dish (and only dish) to arrive was a side dish about 20 minutes later (we did not order the side dish to be an appetizer). Since not receiving anything over the next 30 minutes and watching neighboring tables who had been seated after us either finishing their meal or paying their bills, we decided to leave. As we were leaving, we were met by our surprised hostess/waitress holding our salads who told us our dinner was at the mercy of the kitchen. While I understand being short-handed can cause delays in food arriving, waiting over an hour for a salad is unacceptable, especially given these prices. Instead of having us sit there wondering where our food was, staff could have let us know of the delay and offered us some alternatives, especially knowing we needed to make a 7:30 show. Needless to say, pretty lousy service so we won’t be coming back. Unfortunately, I had to give at least a single star because I couldn’t give anything lower.

We went for Dining week and regret the choice. All the food had ingredients which I cannot eat. I ended up with lettuce no dressing, hamburger no dressing, and still got sick. I should have walked out after discussing the Dining week menu options with the waiter. And, the waiter could have pointed out options on the regular menu, unless there are none.

not sure where to start - They had a tasting menu with items from the real menu. Except that the tasting menu changed the items to include "less" ingredients - Their reason was to save money - hmmm . . .
My chicken looked and tasted raw. When I addressed this to our server, he called over the bartender who knew "more about food". Bartender assured me that the chicken had been cooked! Not sure what that meant when the chicken looked and tasted raw to me.
On the tasting menu - besides reducing the ingredients, the portions were also reduced. Big plate with a little taste on the plate.
Last, the tasting menu came to $33. If each item was ordered individually, the difference was $3-7.
Very very disappointing.

We came for dining month and ended up ordering off the regular menu and sharing five different dishes. We loved the entire experience! The food was incredibly delicious and we enjoyed the international flare. I am very impressed with the chef's creations. We will be back for sure to experience more of this delectable cuisine! Highly recommended for sure!

Decent food, but not one of the better portland dining month experiences. The indian potato fritters were definitely a stand out item. Their website said that they had wine pairings with the meal and they did not. That was disappointing. The service here was excellent though. Every staff member catered to our needs and we were very pleased with their politeness.

Had dinner there before the symphony. Did their Portland Dining month menu. First course Caesar salad was fine. Second course of Chicken Fried Pork Shop was fair. Felt the meat was undercooked. Nothing to write home about. Dessert was delicious, had a butterscotch semi-fredo (I think that's what it's called) that was the best part of the dinner. Service was excellent.

We had never been to this restaurant before, mainly put off by the name! We took advantage of the “Dine Out Downtown Month” to try it. After this very good experience we may try it again on the regular menu. We were going to the Oregon Symphony and so made a reservation for when they opened at 5:00 PM. This may have been our only mistake as there were many people doing the same thing, and it took about 15 minutes to get the glasses of wine we ordered as aperitifs. After that, it was very good because the food was excellent, and also the service was – especially from Bernard. We both had the Indian spiced potato fritter that was almost out of this world. The main courses were also very good - Rockfish and Cannelloni. As a European born wino, I found the wine list over-priced and somewhat boring. When we plan to go again I’ll inquire about their corkage price – assuming they allow you to bring your own. I rarely take my own wine and much prefer to support restaurants with reasonable priced and interesting wine lists. Unfortunately for our palates, this restaurant failed in this area.

Great happy hour, but the March Dining Month meals were both blah. It would have been nice to be offered salt and pepper, neither at table and never was asked. Both desserts were the highlight for sure!

PS. This was my first dinner experience there. I’ve previously enjoyed lunch and happy hour.

I had high hope for a great food but it was just ok. We were there for PDX dining month, and it required that the whole table participate. Which It wasn’t like that at Bullard. The dessert was meh as well. The decor however was open and modern. The waitress never smile or asked how we were doing. It wasn’t that busy either for her to not serve us.

We arrived early for our reservation and they were able to accommodate us. We ordered off of the Portland Dining menu and they let us order off the regular menu for the 7 year old. The server then mentioned that they had a kids’ burger and fries thereby saving us a few bucks when they didn’t have to. The food was great, the cocktails were very well balanced, and the server was knowledgeable and able to provide wine pairing suggestions. A very enjoyable experience!
