Leda & The Swan is not a place to come for a meal - it is the place to come for an amazing experience with excellent cocktails, small plate-snacks (sushi, gyoza, fries, edamame, bao buns, etc.), and to enjoy live music.

I made a reservation here for my best friend's birthday for a group of 8. Service was outstanding. Drinks are creative and tasty. Snacks were also delicious (spicy tuna roll was spicy and fried gyoza was delightfully crispy!).

I will definitely be coming back to this hidden gem in the city.

I was visiting from out of town and made the reservation almost a month in advance. I didnt order food, but my drink was amazing as well as the service.
I also got to see Ajay perform live. Everything was perfect!

Leda & The Swan is a great spot for a date or night out with friends, assuming you and yours either a) have good hearing, b) don't mind shouting, or c) are down to vibe and just chat after the (really good) music. The setting is a superb—blending elements of speakeasies, swanky cocktail lounges, and hole-in-the-wall music venues. The drinks are fantastic... well, the Leeds Devil is anyway. That's the only one I tried... three times. I haven't tried the food (the kitchen closed before we could order), but hear it's decent. In summary, Leda & The Swan did not disappoint!

The drinks were excellent and all unique— we ordered four among two people and they were all tasty! Service was good, quick and communicative. Only complaint was that it was a bit too loud to hear each other. The live music was great, but I would have liked the recorded music in between sets to be a bit quieter. It got a little overwhelming or we might have stayed for another drink. But all in all a nice venue and excellent, unique beverages!

I’m not sure where to start:
Seating - the mini stools are not set for ppl over 150lbs , bar stools wobbly
Tables- rocky, small size of a child’s table. The bar stool and table might have been the same size.
Food- they only had a charcuterie plate that had 5 items on it with Luke warm meat. No other foods as an option to buy
Drinks- the tower was cute but all the drinks taste the exact same like ginger n lemon.
The biggest kicker was the automatic gratuity added at 18% for a party of 2
I will never go there again

This new and upcoming “speak-easy” brunch is not traditional but it’s definitely fun. The mimosas are creative, fun and tasty!! They definitely put a nice spin on this morning drink. The sushi board was fun and tasty. If you’re not a sushi lover I would recommend eating first. Hopefully they will add to the menu in the near future.

This experience was so much fun. We were greeted as soon as we opened the door. We were quickly seated and brought our first flight of drinks and sushi. Our waitress was so friendly and explain the different rolls and cocktails. Any cocktails we didn’t like we could replace with another kind. She kept the flights coming the whole time. This place is quite a vibe. We will definitely be returning.

For the Brunch experience there could’ve been more options or at least a traditional brunch menu available. We found this place on tik tok; it wasn’t the vibe we thought we get. It was very quiet; not exactly fun.

Fun experience. The cocktail flights were fun. They advertise a brunch charcuterie board however in actuality it’s a sushi plate and a plate of sweets and cookies. Definitely wouldn’t call it brunch food. Overall everything was super sweet! Glad we did it. Fun experience. Just pricey for what’s served.

Fun for a loud, crazy celebration. Kind of a scene. We went fir the boozy brunch and they did give you lots to drink, but the food portion was pretty meager. But it was still a lot of fun for what it was! One and done

Great atmosphere and friendly staff. This a great place to go for drinks and good vibes. The food menu is limited but drinks are perfects! The manager was super nice and checked on us several times. The DJ for the evening was great!! Our waitress was attentive. The lighting and decor is perfect for an intimate conversation or swaying on the dance floor under the disco ball, when social distancing is over. I think this my new favorite place.

I came here with a group of 4 for brunch. It was only $50/person for a sushi board (5 rolls), a brunch board (bagels/pastries) and unlimited mimosa towers. All the food and drinks were amazing. On top of that, the service here is what made Leda and the Swan stand out. Our server, Nicole, was so wonderful, attentive and friendly. She made the experience even better.

The only negative thing I can say about it here is that I walked by the kitchen and not one single staff member back there was wearing a mask. I know COVID is on the down trend right now but to me, if the servers still have to mask, the kitchen staff absolutely should as well. We also should be ensuring that COVID spread continues to be limited by following the CDCs recommendations for indoor masking.

This place is still getting 5 stars because Nicole’s wonderful attitude made up for the issues we had with the lack of masking. I will absolutely be back soon!

Horrible option for brunch . The only thing we enjoyed was the sushi . The drink options were all sugary and not so great. The brunch board was a joke ; hard bagels , mini cupcakes , cookies, STARBURST , and a cut up grapefruit for $50 I think tf NOT.
