    Server was perfect atmosphere was perfect but even after ordering three items on the menu about all three items equal the size of my fist. Also, my drink was halfway full for $100. No thank you my question is where do you actually find vendors to find food, the small.

    I thought the food was all tasty. The oysters were fresh and delicious. The salmon was good but disappointed with the portion, which was the only negative. Other than that, we enjoyed the food!

    Food was mediocre for the price. The pear Paloma was spot on however. We had the cheese curds and French onion soup to start, the flavor of the French onion was solid but the chorizo ranch dipping sauce was a tad too spicy for the curds. We got the steak frites and salmon. Salmon was pretty good but the steak was overly charred leaving a burnt bitter taste. For the price should have went to the original swift and sons for a better meal.

    We went to swift & sons for their chicago restaurant deal. The food was yummy, nothing overwhelmingly special but didn’t disappoint either. Upper mid as the kids would say. The mimosas were served in wine glasses but were under filled, such a tease! The ice cream was just okay. Beautiful open space but again upper mid. ALSO! There’s a service charge to pay via QR which is STUPID! be aware!!!

    The three of us who got oysters went straight to the bathroom after and definitely had a sour dirty oyster each. The manager took our drink order and dropped our drinks before the server came over. Didn’t fill our martinis to the rim and charged us $23 when the signature drinks were only $16. The steak salad was sous vide and tasted like boiled meat only thing that saved it was the blue cheese.

    Food was mediocre. Soup wasn’t super hot. Steak was overly salty. Lemon dessert lacked lemon flavor. Didn’t like that you had to pay final bill on your phone or pay to get a receipt. Ambiance was pretty.

    In general it was an okay experience. We were seated promptly and the place was 1/2-ish empty. Our server seemed very busy though as he seemed to disappear for very long periods of time. We were only able to order one round of drinks because he never came back to the table. Fortunately, we were able to pay from the table, because I worry we’d have never tracked him down to get the check. The food was decent. We’ll likely try again and hope that this was just an off day.

    overall it was a good eat, but the dishes were too expensive and didn’t taste good. would have been better if the food lived up to the price tbh. the ambiance was amazing, it was a cute atmosphere and our service was good. took a while to get the check, but other than that we had good service.

    Worst dining experience I’ve had in years. Food is average at best, overpriced, and small portions. Terrible experience in back room, would never recommend it. A poor excuse of saying it’s Swift & Sons related.

    My rating is not on the restaurant alone - this was my first time eating here. Instead it is based on the Santa Brunch. When I saw this advertised, knew it was a hefty dollar amount but I took into consideration, what I anticipated, the entire experience to be. Brunch is a late morning meal combining breakfast and lunch. The buffet consisted of breakfast items as well as a salad. Our reservation was for 12:30pm. Buffet lasted until 2pm. Unfortunately for us; no additional food was added from 12:30 to 2. Meaning we ate food that had been there, with no fresh added as well as when the items were low and/or out - it just stayed that way. Again, no new added. Food itself was - eggs, potatoes, bacon and cold toast. Breakfast food. Salad ran out. So basically zero lunch items. I am a Grandmother, made the tickets to take my daughter and three year old grandson. Thought we could enjoy eating and then as advertised, have him decorate cookies with an elf and to see Santa Claus himself. Will not be rude but sadly for all - neither of those - will even remotely go on an enjoyable, festive, memory or experience. Disappointed to say the least, and a costly visit at $ 60 per adult, for a poorly put together attempt.

    The service in the downstairs bar was extremely slow. Waited 25 minutes for 1 drink. The hanger steak was chewy and cold and the rest of our meal was just ok. I will not be dining here again. I also reserved a bar table but was seated in the main restaurant.

    My first time to Swift & Sons Tavern and Oyster Bar. I love the vibe of the restaurant, very cozy. We had a nice round booth. We started with the charred oysters and I was not a big fan. I guess I thought that the actual oysters would be a bit charred and not just the shells. My son and husband split a salad and a burger and they were very happy with it. I ordered the Italian beef sandwich and I must say, Portillos beef sandwich is FAR superior to this one. We had the amaretto flan for dessert and it was delicious. Our waiter was very nice. All in all, I would go back to the restaurant.

    Made a reservation, and had seating on the 2nd floor next to a window with a beautiful view of wrigley and the lights. The food was delicious - we made it in time for happy hour which meant $2 oysters and free kids meals. It was also exciting to have a glass of wine that seemed to have come from a bottle that was just opened, and in a clean glass. Couldn’t ask for more!
