Swift & Sons
What a wonderful restaurant. The decor, lighting, and special touches were fantastic. Edgar was our server and was absolutely on point with all of the food and wine recommendations...he even provided us with the history of the building and restaurant. We will definitely be back!!
Very good service during our meal with attentive servers and staff. Meal was well paced and quality of food was very good with broad choices on the menu. Our only complaint was during the intro of cocktails and our appetizer where the appetizer came out before our drinks and the finale which was an excellent cheesecake and coffee with the coffee coming much later than the cheesecake! Then once our bill was dropped off, so did the attention from our waiter and getting a second cup of coffee during what was a relaxed meal was difficult.
Great romantic dinner spot. Beautiful space, low lighting, attentive wait- and bartending staff. I really appreciated the candid advice from our bartender in particular when asking about two similar wines with very different price points. His advice was great and my wine was fabulous. I also splurged on the Japanese Wagyu beef for our anniversary and it was the most buttery piece of steak I have ever eaten. Perfectly cooked with amazing flavor. I would highly recommend.
We had a great night at S&S. The service was impeccable. Food and drinks were delicious while overpriced. A great place for a special occasion.
Great food and drinks. Prompt service and excellent staff. Had a great time. Definitely recommended!
Excellent dinner, and they brought us champagne for our anniversary. A little too loud for me, but not terrible.
Best of the best. High quality in everything. We had a big group, so we had a lot of different items. None were less than amazing. Great choice for our company outing.
After carefully researching and reading reviews, I had higher expectations than what I experienced. The arugula salad was too heavily dressed. For a steakhouse, I expect an excellent steak: at the table you could not distinguish the rare from the medium rare. The filet seemed dry. The mushroom sides were too salty and the bean side was over cooked. The sommelier was good. Atmosphere is noisy but fine. Service was ok but a bit salesy.
One of the most memorable dinners I have ever had. Everything, from service to cuisine, was perfect. Literally perfect.
Great meal and service. Best steakhouse in Chicago
Amazing, bone in filet, unbelievably one of the best in the city!
Excellent meal and all around experience. I brought a group of clients and it was fantastic.
This restaurant is really nice. The staff is just outstanding, they were very friendly and helpful. The ambiance is great, nice for a date night or for a family celebrating birthdays. We were very impressed, the food was excellent. We highly recommend this restaurant for people wanting a great steak and wonderful service.
Only if they are in the main dining area. I have been may times and this was the first time we were not in the main dining area and ambience was terrible.
Amazing experience. Food and service were both top notch. There might be restaurants as good, but nothing is better. We were celebrating our anniversary and every person who walked by our table made the night and meal feel special by wishing us a Happy Anniversary. It's great to be in a restaurant with hundreds of other people but feel like you are the only couple there.
We had a great dinner and experience. The service and food was outstanding!
We head to Swift & Sons whenever we want a great meal with fantastic service. The steaks there are delicious, and we love adding bone marrow or the seared foie gras. For appetizers, we always order the carpetbagger oysters and also love the king crab legs. The service is attentive, but never annoying- and always friendly. LOVE this place and the people there!
The King crab legs were fantastic. The wine list is exceptional. The steak was not the best I’ve had (Bone-In Ribeye), but it satisfied my craving for beef. The sides were decent. We ordered the green beans and the corn casserole. Ambience and decor was perfect. Very swanky...perfect for a date night and when work is paying! I recommend!
The magician was a great highlight to our evening!
The food was great but I wish they had more price points available for the wine list.
Some of the best service we’ve ever had. The team was so attentive, they seemed to know what we wanted before we even did. The food was excellent. The Beef Wellington for two was decadent, but it was a special occasion. Very nice space, the area is very congested with a lot of construction in the area.
Excellent service and solid food -- although TBH, I'm not sure their steak offerings are much different from many of the other high-end steak houses around town. Our waiter was on point and brought a complimentary birthday cake out for our occasion -- but the courses were brought very quickly and didn't leave much time for conversation around the table. For a night out like this, part of the fun is spending time with friends and not rushing things.
I'd still recommend this place -- just some minor things they could fix.
The best service I’ve had in Chicago. Also the food was excellent.
Disppointing. Got Surf & Turf, tiny portion of lobster, cap steak was good. Hubby enjoyed his big rib-eye, cooked to his liking. Oysters were excellent but again a tiny portion. Desserts were okay, nothing special. Service ok but not outstanding. There must be.better options.for.such a steep price.
Another great meal! Staff was great. The foos was perfect. Love coming here when I am in Chicago.
Food and service were amazing! Our server made fabulous recommendations. We look forward to our next visit.
Everything was exceptional. We had a wonderful experience.
Great food but it is extremely loud and very difficult to carry on a conversation without yelling.
Everything was wonderful from service to food. Will return soon!
Derive very awkward and slow. Brought bill before we were finished. Came way too much while eating. Food average. Would not return
Fantastic food and exceptionally good service. We celebrated my uncle's 60th birthday here, and he said it was one of the best meals of his life.
We had an outstanding experience
The service and food were outstanding. They made our Birthday celebration even more special.
Out waiter was knowledgeable and patient. We appreciated that swift and sons acknowledged our anniversary. The food and wine selection is amazing! We will be back soon.
All I can say is excellent in every category. Can't wait to get back!
Delicious!! Highly recommend if visiting Chicago!
Attentive but not bothersome wait staff. Amazing food. Recommend the bone in ribeye and the fingerling potatoes as a side.
The service was excellent, however when it came to our meal we were very disappointed with the steaks. The steaks arrived and immediately we noticed they smelled burnt. We each took a bite and yes they were burnt on the outside on one side. The inside was cooked as ordered, but they must have left the steaks on one side for too long. All of the sides, appetizers, etc were delicious though.
