I would recommend it to someone that’s not on a budget. I would tell them that the portions are too small to share so you would be better off to break the bank and order two things for yourself. If a restaurant claims to serve shareable portions, they should make the dishes for that purpose.

Great food, but small plates - should be clearer that they're Tapa's style. And Ahi plate should come with crackers or bread, but otherwise great.

Was great food, below average service, but a little over priced for the quality. Buns were toasted too much and slightly burnt, and bacon wrapped dates weren’t as good as they usually are. Business was slow and server took a long time to get to us, and then was not very attentive. Also lacked giving details on dishes and not very friendly

The restaurant did not have our reservation which was annoying. They did seat us immediately though. It’s pretty noisy! Service was good but they leave dishes on the table for longer than I’d like. Other than that, it was good!

The food was great - specifically the Brussels sprouts and the squid fries. Unfortunately, it was very crowded and loud, so it was difficult to have a conversation with my partner. We were seated closely with the table next to us, and we could hear everything they were saying. Food was worth it but maybe not the best place for a romantic dinner or date night.

Food was disappointing. Had been here before and it was great, but this time all of the dishes were either poorly prepared or nearly unedible (quail tasted like a bottle of salt had been dumped on it). Drinks are good, but overpriced. Sadly, won’t be back.

It was overall average. Not bad by any means. But not great either. Maybe I'm a little particular but with so many delicious places to dine in Austin, Swift's Attic didn't really do it for me. At this same price point, you can get better..in food and overall experience.

I had plans to go to dinner but ended up going to brunch the next day. The food was cooked to perfection. I got Swift’s Benny,home fries,bacon and sausage. The home fries were so fluffy and soft on inside but crispy on outside.

My husband and I celebrated our 35th anniversary here and the staff and management treated us like we were the most important people in the room. They gave us free bubbles to toast each other and they moved us from a regular 2-top to a corner 2-top so we could sit next to each other. The food and cocktails were phenomenal. We will definitely return!

We did the Prix Fixe meny for Valentine's day, so it was $65, which is a little steep, but the food was great, varied, adventurous, and perfectly cooked (a meal that took us from scallops, to shrimp, to ribeye and pork cheek - all done perfectly). It was a good atmosphere for the event. We also got to try both desserts, which were great.

The only detraction: 20% tip was added automatically.

Hands down, the best food I had in Austin! It was so good that my husband and I went back to the place twice in our 5 day stay! Pretty much everything on the menu is worth a try (and it's helpful that they have tapas style portions...easily shareable), but we especially loved the brussels sprouts, pork belly, sweet potato (with Thai curry) and charred edamame. Also, the pear tart (deconstructed) was to die for! Highly recommend it to everyone
