Swift’s Attic, located in the heart of Austin’s most famous Avenue, offers a fun, accommodating escape from the city’s streets below. The sophisticated and whimsically irreverent menu, bar program and interior design encourage a “come one, come all” atmosphere whether dressed up for a night out or relaxed and casual.

Taking traditional fare for a ride, Executive Chef Rene De Leon, Sous Chefs David Wakefield and Charles Deason, and Pastry Chef Kyle McSkinney will delight diners with new epicurean twists on classic worldly favorites. With a focus on fresh, seasonal and sustainable ingredients, Chef De Leon's shareable small plates menu is derived from a lifetime of interactions.

Great date night spot. Food was great - small plates for sharing allowed us to explore the menu together. Great drinks and service too. Definitely recommend and we’ll go back.

Some food choices were great, I loved how it was tapas style. We tried a variety of dishes and some were too out there, others were delicious. We loved our waiter Kat, and overall it was a positive experience

Swift’s Attic’s team truly went above and beyond in comped items and service for an hour delayed reservation for a birthday dinner celebration. Having worked in the restaurant industry, I was beyond impressed. The food, which was excellent, surprisingly played second fiddle to the service itself. Been before, and will continue to give complete recommendation for this place.

Swift’s atic was a wonderful experience. It was my husband’s birthday and it was warm and delish. Our server was so awesome! Sweet and attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant!

The food was decent, but overpriced for what it was.

We ordered the Red Snapper and Flank Steak (their #1 seller). The snapper was good, nothing noteworthy, but the flank steak was very tough (so much so that my wife and I both accidently scraped our plates loudly trying to cut into it) and sitting on relatively boring large balls of fried rice. Not bad, just not $25/plate worth it.

An overall underwhelming experience. Would not return or recommend.

Bf and I rang in the New Year at Swift's Attic (one of the few restaurants in dt Austin that still had reservations available the day of). We partook of the prix fixe menu that they were serving from 10 PM until midnight and it was outstanding. My favorite dish was the Southwestern inspired pozole with clams that was my first course selection - I found it inventive with enough of the homecooking touches I associate with my time in New Mexico. The bf tended more towards the vegetarian options (rutabaga tagliatelle and beet salad) and loved it. There were also some fun and creative cocktail options to choose from on the drink menu. My only complaint is service leaves something to be desired - our waiter was friendly but wasn't really around as he was too busy tending to a rather troublesome table next to us. However, I thought this meal was one of the best I've had in Texas (though not necessarily best in the US), which overrides any service issues we may have had.

Really enjoyed their Prix Fix menu. Everything was very creative. My only complaint was I did not realize the salmon was going to be practically raw. We had a great time and we will definitely be back. Next time I'll ask about any items that are not fully described.

The service is impeccable and atmosphere is so cozy. The tasting menu is varied and delightful; enough but not too much food.
I love the bathroom sinks.

My mother and I had a wonderful waitress who was attentive and very sweet. Everyone who brought a dish out was able to explain what was in the dish with confidence and it made the experience wonderful for my mom!

I will definitely go back!

Excellent food. We ordered 4 small plates to try different options, all hit the mark. The rise and shine dessert was a home run, unique and delicious. If I lived in Austin, I would be a regular here.
