Everything was great except the food was not so good. Especially for the price they charge. Not worth it.

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.

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.

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!
