Great spot. Knowledge waiter. Very friendly and engaging. Ambiance is laid back. Food is incredible mixtures it tastes. Ice Ball drink is solid.
Everything was great except the food was not so good. Especially for the price they charge. Not worth it.

Perfect for people that love to try a little of everything! Small plate sharing style, amazing flavor and creativity from everything we ate, and we ate a lot!
Thank you so much! We truly appreciate it and hope to see you again soon!
Do not hesitate to visit this place! We had the Kale Caesar and How We Roll (amazing) for starters; followed by the Carrots al Pastor. The service was great - and the food was better!
Thank you so much for your kind words! We hope to see you again soon!
Risotto es muy bueno
Great service! And great food and drinks! Can’t think of one negative thing to say.
Thank you, thank you! Your kind words and local support is greatly appreciated. We hope to see you again soon!
Had a great time here! We had to cancel the valentine's day meal Togo order due to losing power for several days and got a gift card so the restaurant could keep the profits. The delay allowed us time to get vaccinated and we were able to enjoy the meal in person!
Thank you, thank you! We are so glad you made it in and enjoyed yourselves. Your kind words truly mean a lot to us. We hope to see you again soon!
Second time. Second great experience. Definitely will go back.
Jefferson, that truly means a lot to our hardworking team! Thank you and we hope to see you again soon!
Great food and service. Everything we ordered was delicious
Thank you so much --we hope you return soon!
We hadn’t heard anything about this restaurant but chose it for our anniversary dinner. We loved it. The Pad Thai was incredible as was the Edamame. The carrot entree was disappointing, but I can see how other people would like it. Just not to our taste. Cocktails were lovely - can’t remember the names of what we got. We will definitely go again.
Thank you Bob -- Happy Anniversary -- we hope to see you again soon!
The food is impeccable! Can not recommend this place enough!
Thank you so much! It truly means a lot to our hardworking team! --We hope to see you again soon!
Phenomenal food and drinks, great service, great ambiance
Thank you so much! It truly means a lot to our hardworking team!
An interesting space with great food - and some unusual choices... This is a creative chef doing really cool stuff...
Thank you Steve -- we hope to see you again soon!
We truly enjoyed our experience at Swift’s Attic. From great service, to amazing food and cocktails, not to forget the awesome ambience… If we come back to Austin we are coming back here!
Thank you so much -- we truly appreciate it and do hope you come visit us again soon!
Good no fuss good. Ambience could be better with a more refined soundtrack.
Thank you so much!
Despite being a party of two, we were given a spacious four-top by the window. The bartender was our server. He was attentive without being intrusive. The music had us bobbing our heads through out dinner and the drinks were smooth. The atmosphere was cozy but not too dark. It was the perfect way to mark our 26th anniversary.
Thank you so much -- we hope to see you again soon!
My fave place in Austin! Food is incredible, service outstanding and ambiance just right. My top recommendation for entertaining!
Thank you so much for your kind words -- we truly appreciate it and hope to see you again soon!
The menu online did not match the menu at the restaurant. We didn’t end up eating because there wasn’t a dish that matched dietary requirements
Thankyou Nicole for your review -- while the google menu is current but not perfect our website menu is always up to date and lists all of our dietary restrictions offering several gluten free, vegan, and vegetarian options. If you are ever in doubt we highly encourage you to ask your server or a manager and they would be more than happy to help you navigate through our menu. We appreciate you supporting local now more than ever and do hope you give us another try again soon.
It was beyond uncomfortable hearing one of the waitresses play mask monitor to anyone who chose not to wear a mask (which was almost everyone). At this point over half of the people in Austin are vaccinated. A mask is not protecting anyone. People who believe they do work can protect themselves with their own mask, gloves, face shield and vaccination. In the future will patronize a different restaurant where I’m not scolded by a clearly angry young woman. The waiter who served our table was friendly and accommodating and the food was good. It’s unfortunate that we couldn’t enjoy the night out due to one person’s attitude toward the patrons. Surprised the manager allows behavior that will eventually cost everyone their job.
Thank you John for your review -- we are sorry to hear you didn't fully enjoy yourself. We do appreciate your patience as we navigate through this most challenging time. On your visit (5/13) the mask mandate had not been lifted yet and we, like most Austin establishments, were still requiring masks to be worn when not at your table, with signage throughout the restaurant to do so. This week now that things are lifting so are the "in-house dining rules" -- we are no longer requiring but
We had a wonderful time at Swift’s Attic for my husband’s birthday. The food was fantastic! To start, we ordered the broccoli salad (even better than I expected) and the mash ups (soo good!). Then we ordered the Fungus Among Us mushroom risotto, and I would definitely order this again! It was delicious! We also loved the Swift Kick in the Chx plate. Everything was plated so beautifully. We don’t usually order deserts, but since it was his birthday we got the chocolate torte and it was to die for!! They even added a candle to it when they brought it out. Our server was knowledgeable of the menu, kind and attentive. We both had a wonderful time, and are most definitely going to be back again soon!
Thank you SO much for your kind words -- our hardworking team truly appreciates it. We hope you visit us again soon!
The drinks are great. The food is average. I don’t think it’s worth the price. Probably worth visiting during happy hour rather than prime dinner time.
Thank you for your review -- we are sorry to hear you didn't fully enjoy your experience. We highly encourage you to reach out to a manager upon dining if you ever have any issues so that they can assist you on your visit. We do hope you give us another try again soon!
Food was amazing. We ate our plates clean. Ambiance and noise level was good. Wish they played variety of music and not just hip hop
The food and service was outstanding!!
Very creative food
Great food, great drinks, friendly and helpful staff. All of the cocktails were fantastic and the dishes were inventive and delicious. Maybe the best playlist in town in the background!
Simply the best. Great staff, great food, great atmosphere. Highly recommend!
A lovely space; kind and attentive service. But the food was just not good at all. Creative ideas executed poorly. Drinks were good. I wish them well, but hope they increase the quality of their product. And I wish I would have found another place to eat.
A definite favorite of ours. With all the options in Austin we keep going back to this place. We love the comfortable vibe, the creative menu and the super friendly service. The ice ball cocktail should not be missed!
Thank you so much -- it truly means a lot to our hardworking team!
Great unique food & drinks
Great aesthetic and vibey music
Friendly helpful staff

We had amazing food and delicious cocktails. Service was top notch.
SenatorSquirrel your kind words really mean a lot to our hardworking team -- thank you so much! We hope you join us again soon!
The food, the restaurant ambience, and the entire experience were all exemplary. But worth mentioning is our waitress Paula, who made the evening extra special. All of our plants were delicious, the desert was especially surprising and satisfying. We are singing your praises to all of our friends. Cannot wait to come back and see you again.
Thank you Danno -- Paula is great and our hardworking team truly appreciates your kind words. We hope to see you again soon!
Great food, great service, great scene!
Was very impressed.
Thank you Vanessa -- it really means a lot to our hardworking team. We hope you join us again soon!
Really enjoyed the food! I’m not vegetarian, but the dishes they prepared could convert me. The one dish we had with lamb was probably my least favorite, although still good. It was a bit chilly at our table. I will go back for the Pad Thai.
Thank you so much amfoodie! It truly means a lot to our team and we hope to see you again soon!

I didn’t love the food there , it was kind of spicy for me ( pad thai ). I might go back when they are fully reopened and jazz bar open downstairs !

Curtis and staff are amazing! From the time you walk in the door you are well taken care of, cocktails and food are fresh, delicious, and creative!
Thank you Tammy -- we are big Curtis fans too and it truly means a lot to our hard working team. We hope to see you again soon.
Made a reservation and was immediately sat. We even got the best seat in the place! Service was phenomenal and the food was excellent. They have the best Old Fashions with a new technique of the ice ball
Service was wonderful, food was delicious, and the ambiance was very cool.
Best cocktails on the city. Bar tender(manager) was super personable and helpful. Next time I’m in Austin I will definitely go back and would recommend to anyone visiting.
