I didn’t love the food there , it was kind of spicy for me ( pad thai ). I might go back when they are fully reopened and jazz bar open downstairs !

Made a reservation and was immediately sat. We even got the best seat in the place! Service was phenomenal and the food was excellent. They have the best Old Fashions with a new technique of the ice ball

It was so wonderful to be able to dine once again at Swift’s Attic. The food was outstanding as always. It was the perfect choice to celebrate my husband’s birthday.

We started with the Mash Ups which were crisp and crunchy on the outside and warm and delicious inside. We followed these with the Lamb Meatballs and the Swift Kick in the Chicken. Again, both were delicious. The saffron peguillo sauce served with the lamb unified the dish. The pickled mustard seed and truffle tahini helped make the chicken dish stellar. We ended with the Chocolate Torte... filled with bright blueberry flavors and decadent chocolate.

The service was welcoming and fairly on point. The only negative aspect of the evening was the long gap between our two entrees being served. I’m still not sure why the chicken dish wasn’t served with the meatballs.

We’re glad to have Swift’s back on our list if dining options as the world begins to open back up post Covid. We felt safe while dining and left well satisfied with our meal.

Creative names ansd presentation, but I think they could have focused more on texture and contrast between flavors on the dish.

We graze through the menu and try about six or seven things. mash ups are amazing
broccoli crunch salad is a great take on broccoli.
edamame with the Pop rocks is a fun take on it.
Porky pie is a wonderful homemade pot pie that is excellent comfort food.
And last but not least the chocolate tort is a must!

Everyone provided great service and we will be back.

Great food and excellent service. As is the case with many restaurants these days, COVID has taken away from the lively experience. Not Swift's fault. Just a state of the current affairs.

We have such a great time! It was a Wednesday evening they were only four tables in the entire restaurant at 6 o’clock. We have the edamame which was absolutely amazing. The pork steamed buns, amazing. We really liked the steak sushi. And the chicken chorizo board. Our server was so wonderful. We loved the early 2000s hip-hop playing. It was such a great evening.
