What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.3

Swift & Sons might have a separate seafood restaurant inside of it, but this steakhouse is the star of the show.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

Our second time at Swift and Sons. Dinner for most of our party was exceptional, but one of our party got a med well versus medium ribeye. It was still very good, but kept rating to 4 versus 5. Service was a bit slower than we remembered, but it was Big10 weekend. We will be back!

The bone-in filet was done perfectly and melt in your mouth tender and delicious. Service is attentive without being intrusive. Every detail is top notch. Pricey but worth it. Gets noisy but still able to carry a conversation.

We were very disappointed in the quality of the steaks. They were over cooked (they did not charge us for one) and the taste was underwhelming.

Two of the four steaks had to be returned for being undercooked. Ordered steaks medium. Mashed potatoes were not very good as they had too much butter in them. Mac and cheese wasn’t what you would expect and didn’t taste like Mac and cheese at all. Overall very disappointed in the food. We eat out a lot and this is certainly not up to par with its competitors.

We had a fantastic experience at Swift and Sons. The food and service were fantastic. Two pieces of feedback for the restaurant: my husband primarily drinks beer and was a bit disappointed with the curation of the beer list; I was also confused when I visited the restroom. There seemed no way to determine if a door was locked or not without trying the handle, and that can be embarrassing if the restroom is occupied. Overall, though, we absolutely loved the design and ambiance of the restaurant. Our food was great and the service was excellent!

The service was fantastic. My son and I split the 48oz porterhouse. It was one of the best steaks I've had in years. The strip side was just as tender as the filet. Home run. We also had the 8oz filet and two half chicken dinners. All great. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the creamed spinach, bacon spinach tart and the ceasar salad were so salty I could only take a small bite.

I would not hesitate to return in the future. Great spot

Some food came out cold. Smallest oysters we've ever had. Chicken was super dry. Filet was under seasoned. Waiter was good. Had reservations but seated 30 minutes past reservation. Would opt to spend that amount of money in a different establishment.

Overpriced and the food wasn’t hot enough. Also, the bread to start wasn’t great and the sides and dessert were not large portions. I’d much rather go to Chicago Cut or Maestros. This place seemed amateur compared to more established steakhouses. $60 for a warm bone-in filet that was chewy and didn’t come on a hot plate. $18 for an average tequila as well. French onion soup wasn’t burn enough on the cheese but too burnt on the croutons.

My boyfriend and I went to Swift & Sons for my boyfriend’s birthday. We had everything from multiple appetizers to entrees to multiple sides and desserts. The service, food, drinks, and ambience were great. I wouldn’t go there everyday just because of the price, but I would absolutely go back for a special occasion.

A busy Valentine's weekend so we ate late and reservations we're running behind for the night. Our server and service support team we're amazing as always once we were seated. We enjoyed trying but new to us Massachusetts oyster varietal and the Japanese wagyu also tried for the first time here did not disappoint. The true gem is always the bone in ribeye. The dessert cart featured fun heart shape goodies.
