We were extremely disappointed in our Valentine's Day dinner with Swift's Attic. We've been there multiple times and have always enjoyed their incredible food, service and ambiance. It's been at the top of our list. Our dinner was a birthday gift from a family member; we were so excited to go out on the town as it's not something we do often. We were not aware of the fixed menu but decided we'd give it a shot. Our waiter BARELY INTERACTED WITH US. He didn't check on us, plates were not cleared and he seemed overwhelmed/stressed. I've worked in the service industry before; I understand having a rough evening. However, for $60 a head, not including drinks, and an automatic 20% tip, it was abysmal. The food was cold, lacking taste and the portions were absurd. We're both athletes, my boyfriend is a big guy and we are conscientious about portions. Needless to say, we were hungry when we left. Super disappointing. Might not go back for a while if ever as this truly soured our Valentine's date experience.

Food was great and served in a well paced way. It was a busy night and they had a couple of large groups there, so it was hard to have a normal conversation, but being Saturday night in downtown Austin, it’s to be expected. Service was awesome. We’ll be back, though we may try a slower night.

My girlfriend and I cam here for our anniversary and it was phenomenal. great take on small plates and an incredible wine menu. the staff was great - super knowledgeable on the wines and provided some guidance, though not pushy, on certain plates to have. a little pricey, but this was hands down the best meal I've had in Austin to date

Came in with the wife this weekend for a nice dinner before I started a new job. This was our fourth or fifth visit to Swift’s, and by far the most memorable. We both work in the Service industry, and when we go out to eat we go for the gusto. No complaints on any of the food whatsoever. Had the Sweet Pots, Brussels Sprouts, Corn Fritters, Pork Cheek, Snapper, and the Peanut Butter Jelly Time dessert. Would recommend every single one of those dishes!

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.
