This is by far my worst dining experience. I left the restaurant after an hour and had only received a water.

we chose this restaurant bc of its proximity to my friend's, whose birthday I was celebrating, work and also bc we could make a reservation allowing us to maximize her lunch hour. That was very convenient; however, I was disappointed in the ambience as well as the flavor of the food. just kind of plain!

Very inconsistent. The corn chowder and lamb meatballs were amazing! The fried chicken was also very good. But the pork chop was over cooked, and my wife’s rib-eye was undercooked, and both were very over-salted. The service was also only ok. We would most likely not return.

Way better than the first time.
The food was outstanding. Our server (Brandon) was very helpful. Plan to return in the next few weeks. Not sure what changed, but they got it right. Highly recommend it to all.

The food was great, but the service was awful. There were so many mistakes made, it would take too long to list. We were there 2 hours with only 3 tables and were still late to our concert. The management did make it right with the one person at our table who's meal was totally forgotten about but that didn't help the rest of us who were stuck waiting too.

Food was delicious. But the kitchen seemed slow with our order. If fried chicken is made to order, perhaps inform diners that it will take 25 minutes to prepare. We were not told that.
And waiter was kind, but not attentive.

 (Indiana)·Dined on August 18, 2017

We were on a four day bourbon tour, and decided to eat dinner at the Sway on one of the evenings. We each ordered something different, and the quality of dinner varied greatly with each plant. The steak dinner had to be sent back because it was too salty to be eaten. Our server was on his second day of work, and no one was assisting him. It was painfully slow. The manager did apologize and removed the steak dinner from the bill. I would only eat there again if I were staying in that hotel and did not feel like walking out for a meal.

Went for brunch and was VERY underwhelmed. Small brunch menu so we opted for the buffet, which was better than average but I requested an omelette that took 25+ mins to arrive, only after I inquired about it, and contained all the wrong ingredients. Server apologized but no amends were made.

While we were able to book a table, the restaurant was actually closed. Ruined our night for sure. Why did this happen Open Table? Poor reflection on Hyatt and the restaurant as well. Don't know when I will be back in Louisville but will think twice about other Hyatt properties

My review will only take 1 word. . . YUM. Best fried chicken I've ever had and that's saying a lot from a former restaurant owner and lover of fried chicken. The server was very attentive and sweet. I just can't say enough good things! Double thumbs up.

The best fried chicken ever! I've read about Sway in national reviews and had to try it for an early Mother's Day dinner. It was fantastic. Portion sizes were perfect and the biscuits and cornbread were scrumptious. Next time, I'm going to try the Spicy Shrimp and Grits.

Food was wonderful. Rarely get fried green tomatoes bc have been disappointed too many times -- these were perfect!! Would get again and recommend to anyone. Shrimp and grits were very good -- waiter was knowledgeable, friendly and timely -- made good recommendations w/out overselling and told us the portions were large so we shared the main course and saved room for dessert (sweet potato pie and chocolate raspberry mousse) both were memorable and I would order both again. Plan on going to this restuarant again & trying fried chicke. It was perfect for right before concert at KFC Yumm center (easy walk) -- truthfully, I was not expecting the food to be so good.

The fried chicken is to die for! Every time we are in Louisville, we make a stop at Sway for the fried chicken. Had the mac and cheese this time and it was great. Lots of crispy bacon and a peppery flavor. It has quite a kick. Can't wait to get back into town and go again.

My wife and I were looking to have dinner downtown prior to the theater and decided to try Sway again. We ate here once before a couple of years ago. We had a reservation for 5pm on valentines day, which is early for us, but our show was at 7:30. It was very quite at this time, since it was too early for most customers. It was still quite when we left about 6:30pm, even though there were quite a few more patrons.

They have a nice wine selection, which is available in 5oz, 8oz and the bottle. My wife had the Salmon with roasted vegetables & potatoes. It was cook exactly how she likes it and it was very favorable. The roasted vegetables must have had 10 different vegetables in it and was very good. I had their famous fried chicken with mashed potatoes and roasted vegetables. It was a 1/2 chicken (leg, thigh, wing & breast). Enough for 2 people! Everything was hot and fresh and tasted great!

It was a little pricy, but on par for a downtown hotel restaurant. Wish they would have a 1/4 chicken instead @ maybe $17 instead of the 1/2 @ $24. The salmon was $26.

We will definitely be back and probably less than a couple of years.

My husband and I celebrated our birthdays here and it was very enjoyable. I ordered the Southern Fried Chicken which was fried to order and was delicious. They give you half a chicken for your order! My husband got the half rack of ribs. And they too were delicious. Smoked perfectly. A little to saucy for our liking. Our waitress, Linda, was delightful!
