The food is okay, but incredibly expensive for what you get and for the quality of food. Plus, it is really noisy so it's difficult to have a conversation. There are too many other fabulous places in Austin to go back to Swift's. Not worth the money.

The best overall meal we’ve had in Austin yet! Came here for a date night after a coworker suggested it and we had a blast! The New Fashioned was tasty and refreshing and each small plate was creative, full of flavor and beautiful presentation. If you go, get edamame... it has pop rocks and you won’t regret it.

Swift's Attic was definitely an experience. The food was outstanding, just not enough of it. Great presentation, service was okay - got my drink order wrong (how do you screw up Jack on the Rocks - they brought me Rum and Coke - yuk! I'd say, if you don't mind dropping a hundred and twenty dollars for two skimpy entrees and a shared appetizer, try it out. We went to Eddie V's afterward and had drinks and dessert for a couple of hours. Nice finish.

If you're looking for a pub with decent food, then yes, I'd recommend for the experience. The food is good although overpriced. The service was good. I gave a higher rating due to the bar tender, Curtis. Our waitress was just Ok.

We had such a wonderful experience at Swift’s Attic! We went there to celebrate my birthday with friends. The food was delicious, the drinks were flavorful and boozy (just how I like it), and our waitress was amazing! Once she knew what our flavor profiles were like, she recommended food and drinks perfect for us! We tried many of the menu items, and everything we tried was DELICIOUS! We finished our meal with the dark chocolate mousse, and it was absolutely decadent!

In one visit, Swift's Attic has catapulted itself to near the top of my list of places to go when you feel like treating yourself. With its creative takes on standard dishes, uncommon ingredients and plates, and unique "ice ball" cocktails, I ate all I could but there is still plenty to explore with nary a bad dish to mar the experience. Highly recommend.

It was a great time! I love swifts attic. The food was delicious! I really enjoyed the brunch menu especially the apple turnover - so delicate and delicious . I am usually not one for sweets. I had the og burger and it was great! The waitress forgot one small special instruction on my friend’s bowl, but other than that the service was perfect. The ambience here is great.

Great and inventive lunch and dinner menu as well. The bim bim bap with steak is a favorite.

A friend and I were visiting Austin for a couple of days and made reservations to eat here. From the moment you walk in the door and up to the host stand to ordering and being served cocktails + food, and departing back through the door, it's an incredible experience. First up, the ice ball cocktails are delicious and fun to drink. The strawberry one was my favorite and it did not disappoint. We then ordered and enjoyed the bacon wrapped dates with a pepper sauce (I wish I could have bottled this sauce up and brought a gallon of it home with me - unreal). Since the restaurant serves tapas style plates, my friend and I split a salad (dressing + ingredients on this were locally sourced and rich in flavor) and the two-day mole sauce and chicken dish. Talk about massive and well-balanced ingredients. The service was awesome and very hospitable. I will DEFINITELY recommend Swift's Attic to friends and coworkers who travel to Austin. Personally, I hope to come back soon and dine again.
