We were fortunate to have SWIg recommended by the concierge at the Pfister. Swig is easy distance from major hotels downtown. Our waiter was new to Swig but experienced and very helpful. Glad we found Swig.

Food was good. Great romantic ambiance. Waitress did nice job. No bread with the pasta? Meals plenty but for the price I would expect a side or salad.

Great small plate offerings. A front table overlooking the sidewalk below was great for people watching. Service(by Kim) was courteous and well-paced, allowing us to easily make the theater.

Took my grandma here for her birthday. We both LOVED the scones. I loved the bean cakes so much we ordered them twice. Delish!

Went for brunch, left hungry. Drinks were not good. Food was something just not much of it. Pricey.

We always have a very nice time at Swig when we go out. We have some picky eaters and adventurous eaters in our group, and yet they always love it. The ambiance of Swig is so cozy and romantic! The staff is very accommodating and friendly as well.
