We were pleasantly surprised with our meal. All of the dishes order were excellent. We had not done tapas much but we’re pleased with amount and quality of each selection. I would recommend Swifts Attic for an enjoyable but different food experience.

Good low light ambience, interesting menu. Food portion was small but it’s reasonably priced, get 4-5 for two people to share and we enjoyed it very much! Our waiter Paula is the best, friendly and helpful, we had a great night eating there as a date.

We loved everything about our experience at Swift’s! There was no wait, our server Michaela was amazing and walked us through everything since it was our first time there. The food was delicious-especially the edamame, Seoul food dish, and the cherry churro dish with cream cheese ice cream! It was perfect for our date night! We will be back for sure!

One of the best places in the downtown area for thoughtful, creative cocktails and flavorful, fresh dishes. The Tiger Apricot appetizer is a must, and we loved the ice ball cocktails (and refills!). Very trendy, romantic interior - will definitely be back.

Service was a bit slow even though the restaurant wasn't completely busy. Drinks took too long to get to the table - about 20 minutes. Dishes were all pretty good but nothing knocked it out of the park. I'd give them another chance next time I'm in town.

We enjoyed most of our experience at Swift’s. We loved the Ice ball cocktails! We started with Mashups for an appetizer and loved the flavor and texture. We then had in fairly rapid succession (which I wished was spaced out more) the Pad Thai, which was amazing! The lamb meatballs were good and I would have served them on warm orzo instead of cold and didn’t notice the feta in that dish. We then had the halibut which was perfection and we should have just stopped there. The fungus among us was no where near the caliber of the Halibut, but we like to try different presentations of things. The German Chocolate dessert was phenomenal and glad we ended on such a positive note♥️

It was our first time at Swift’s Attic and we definitely had a memorable time. We ate an array of dishes and all of the dishes our server, Paula, recommended were out of this world. For a dining experience, she was super attentive to detail and elevated the meal with cocktail pairings. For a busy couple that only gets out every now and then it was a memorable experience.

Made our reservation on a whim without much previous knowledge of the Swift's Attic. We were incredibly impressed with the knowledge of our server, George, about every aspect of the drink and food menus. As far as the food itself, they are a tapas-styled place but each dish was substantial enough to work for an individual if you did not want to go that route. We ended up having about 5 dishes total and were impressed with each. Wonderful spot downtown, and having the Elephant Room underneath it makes for a great experience after your meal.

While a little expensive, even for a downtown Austin restaurant, we had a lovely time at Swift's Attic. It was pretty empty at 5pm on a weekday and we got great service with a table of three. We were seated at 5:15 and they were kind about letting us get a happy hour drink in before 5:30. They took note of our vegan status and made sure to point out options. We had the fried brussels sprouts, funghi risotto and pad thai. All were on the smaller side, even for tapas, but was perfect for a light dinner for 3. Ended with a surprise sorbet for my friend's birthday that was delicious and beautiful - looked like sashimi in the best way!
