We didn't realize the food was tapas style so that was a bit disappointing. Overall the food was okay but nothing I would remember a week from now.
Thank you--we appreciate the time you took to review us and we are sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your experience. We strive to bring nothing but the best quality to all of our dishes and support many local farmers and vendors in doing so. The thought behind many of our dishes is to take the familiar/classic and make them modern, whimsical, and shareable. We take great pride and care in thoughtfully creating our fare & hope that you take that into consideration & try us again soon.
Wonderful experience!! Date night was incredible, food was unbelievable and our waiter was so very kind and made us feel so special on our anniversary. :) Everything exceeded my expectations. The only thing I would offer constructive feedback on is that the tables are really close together, so it made it feel like our conversation could be (and was) heard by our neighbors (and we heard all of theirs), so felt less private than I would have preferred. Other than that, LOVED it and will go back very soon!
Thank you for celebrating with us and Happy Anniversary! Yes, it's a lively environment! We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your meal and hope to see you back soon!
Absolutely one of the best meals I have ever had! The chefs, our servers, bartenders, hostess-everyone was friendly, inviting and fun. All five of us raved about the dinner for the next 48 hours and already recommended it to a few people! Thank you!!
We are blushing! Thank you so much for your kind words and support! It truly means a lot to the entire team. We hope you come back and see us again soon!
Swift's Attic is a must visit restaurant in Austin. They food is excellent and so is the service. The place just has a great vibe. You can't go wrong no matter what you choose on the menu. I would highly recommend.
We SO appreciate your kind words and feedback! Thank you and we hope to see you again soon!
Service was great. Drinks and ambiance were lovely. One of the sweet potatoes was majorly undercooked, still crunchy. One of the pieces of pork belly was majorly over cooked: chewy and totally dry. So, it was a nice meal but definitely not an amazing dining experience.
Thank you for your review! We are sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your experience. We will be sure to let the team know but highly recommend that if you are ever not satisfied at the restaurant please let the manager know to give us a chance to fix it right away. We appreciate the time you took to let us know here so that we can improve where needed. We do hope you come back and try some other dishes soon.
The restaurant is a gem. We were looking for a break from heavy food (bbq, Tex Mex) and wanted yummy but delicious on lighter side. Their menu had such a nice variety and the food was really good. Very nice server who took time to answer our questions. I also liked how our server suggested a delicious but refreshing mock cocktail ( no alcohol) it's like a big ice ball of strawberry puree with herbs but with seltzer.
Thank you so much Sandy! We hope you come back and see us again soon!
Too loud but overall a great experience with great dishes and good service
We were recommended this restaurant from a friend and it did not disappoint. We got their specialty cocktails and ordered 8 different shareable plates.
Mark was excellent server as always. It is great that he always remembers my husband and I, in addition to anticipating our needs. He is the best!
We are BIG Mark fans ourselves! Thank you for joining us -- we do hope to see you again soon!
Our waitress was friendly, prompt, and made excellent suggestions. Their specialty monkey bread was superb! We wanted to drink the sauce!
We love Brass Monkey Bread! Thank you for your kind words -- come back and see us again soon!
Friendly staff! We ate brunch here! Great food!
Thank you so much Jessica -- we hope to see you again soon!
Do not like the fact that your food does not come at together.
We think it's a more lively and fun way to dine since most of our dishes are shareables -- if you ever have a special request please let us know upon dining and we will certainly try to accommodate your party. We do hope you come back and see us again soon!
Fantastic brunch options. We sat at the bar and enjoyed great service!
Thank you -- we hope to see you again soon!
The families favorite place in Austin!
Thank you -- so good to hear!
Amazing experience, our waiter made great recommendations. Loved the music and ambience. Food was on point, scallops cooked to perfection.
Thank you -- so great to hear -- we hope to see you again soon!
Great food, great service, the place died down as soon as we sat down.
Thank you -- we hope to see you again soon!
Solid. Drinks are great, food was awesome and so was the service. Awesome venue for dates or group outing
They were so incredibly accommodating to my party! So glad we could have brunch with there. Customer service is an A+. I wish it would’ve been a little more livelier at the time, but the staff made up for anything missing. Thank you all for lighting and slicing my birthday cake as well. It was lovely!
Thank you -- we hope to see you again soon!
The experience started out well with prompt attention from the greeter and our waiter. The space itself is stunning and almost worth the visit in itself. We ordered 4 small plates. The first was the sweet pepper buratta. The cheese itself was good, quite fresh and creamy. However, the sweet pepper was practically not there, and there was not enough bread supplied for the generous amount of cheese. Our waiter cheerfully offered to provide more bread. Then we sat there for over 10 minutes with our half eaten plate. The server passed our table numerous times, never stopping to apologize for the wait, never explaining why it took so long to get more bread. Finally another server sensed our frustration and stopped to ask how things were, then said that they had to toast the bread. Waited another 5 minutes or so. Finally, the second server brought out the bread, followed closely by our other 3 plates. Then she brought a complementary serving of the brussell sprouts. The other plates were quite good. Obviously the bread episode set the night off on the wrong foot, and we probably would have been happier with everything had that not occurred.
Thank you for your review and for taking the time to let us know that you didn't fully enjoy your experience. We are sorry for our mistake and will certainly share this with the team so that something like this doesn't happen again. We do hope you give us another try!
The service was amazing. Also recognized my birthday.
Service was amazing as well as the selection of food. Definitely will be coming back
Steak was raw (not rare) and brussel sprouts were undercooked. Very good the second time out. The pad thai is amazing. Stick to standard drinks from the bar they have not perfected their signature drinks.
Thank you Nofoodsnob we appreciate the time you took to review us and will let the team know. We do hope you give us another try again soon!
Had a fantastic meal with 6 friends in a great circular booth. Small plates were perfect for sharing and servers were polite and attentive
Thank you so much -- we love hearing about your experience -- come back and see us again soon!
The drinks and atmosphere are fun, but the menu is small and pricey. Service was great and noise level was a bit loud. It was a fun place to visit, but not sure I’d go there again.
Thank you Tiedyemom for your review. We appreciate the time you took and will be sure to let the team know. We do hope you give us another try soon.
Enjoyed the tapas menu. Great ambiance.
Thank you -- come back and see us again soon!
I have been to Swift’s Attic on multiple occasions (lunch, dinner, drinks). The food is consistently on point and the drinks are fantastic. Keep it up!
Thank you talz! We love that you've been able to try all the things -- come back and see us again soon!
Outstanding food and service! Great way to start an evening at the Elephant Room! We loved the Brussels sprouts and the Korean BBQ flank steak! Scallops are wonderful and so were the calamari. We had way too much food for 2. A tad loud, but you get used to it.
Thank you so mush for joining us Sue! Sounds like you had a great time -- we hope to see you again soon!
Food was delicious and service very good. The table for two we were at was very close to the tables next to it. I’m not a fan of those kind of set ups. We could literally hear the couple next to us talking about the problems in their relationship. There was also a bachelorette gathering and they were SO loud, like yelling loud! I wonder at what point they’re asked to quiet down a little?? Luckily they arrived toward the end of our meal.
Thank you for letting us know about your experience -- we do hope to see you again soon!
Swift's is amazing! The ambience is great. The drinks are inventive and tasty. The service is stellar. Last, but definitely not least, the food is absolutely amazing. I would describe it as eclectic American. The chef brought out and explained a couple of our dishes and the overall experience was great! This dinner really made our night out in Austin.
Awww we are blushing -- thank you so much -- come back and see us again soon!
Made a reservation for a birthday. I specified that is was a birthday celebration and we were given a free glass of champagne. That was a nice touch. The restaurant itself was BEAUTIFUL.. the food was fantastic and the service was great!
Thank you so much WReid -- come back and see us again soon!
Everything was great except it was really hot inside.
Thank you Shawn -- we hope to see you again soon!
All around awesome experience. Highly recommend Swift's Attic!
Thank you so much Sean - we hope to see you again soon!
The food has really gone downhill since last time I was there. The pork bao buns came out with hard, over-cooked pork and deep fried crumbs of bun (basically pita chips). The kale salad was basically hard kale covered in cheese with hardly any flavor. We were celebrating my boyfriend's birthday and they didn't acknowledge it until well after we paid the bill. I was very underwhelmed and will not be returning.
We appreciate the time you took to review us GinaV and we are sorry to hear that you didn't fully enjoy your experience. Anytime there is something that you don't enjoy -- in any restaurant not just ours -- please say something we'd be more than happy to help find a solution and make it right. We take great pride and care in thoughtfully creating all of our fare and hope that you take that into consideration and try us again.
Every time I go to this place it is outstanding and the service is fantastic! This is one of those places where I have to give a five star rating on everything because it’s that good but I’d rather give a one star so that people won’t go there and we can keep this wonderful little oasis in downtown Austin ourselves!
Awww thank you so much for your kind words and for supporting our local place! We hope to see you again soon!
Really tasty food; nice portions to share. Delicious cocktails too!
Thank you ChrisR! We hope to see you again soon.
We were sat by a table of 8 that were very loud. It was difficult to hear our server or each other. The food and drink were beautifully prepared and tasted great. The mole on the grilled chicken was spectacular!
Thank you so much -- we love our new Chicken Mole dish! We hope to see you again soon.
Great food, great ambiance, delicious drinks... What more could you ask for?!
Thank you so much -- we hope to see you again soon!
The space was amazing and food was delicious! Thank you for a lovely dinner out.
Thank you for joining us! We hope to see you again soon!
We changed the reservations from 4 to 8 including a toddler and an infant. Everything was handled well including making accommodations with the meals. Service was excellent. Food was yummy.
Thank you so much PatriciaS! We hope to see you again soon!
