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.

I was underwhelmed. Expensive drinks with the tiniest cocktail onions. Hovering and cloying service. There are always large tables of over boozed bros or noisy families with their kids on iPads.

Food was much saltier this visit - noise level was also very very high. May wait to return until I hear the salt level is more reasonable

My husband and I love this restaurant. It was our second dining experience here, and we had an amazing time. The food was spectacular, and the drinks were delicious as well. Our waiter, Jose, was SO incredibly funny and sweet. He treated us to two side dishes and four truffles, just because he liked us. We would definitely return for a fancy dinner or extra special occasion. Thank you, Jose, for making our night!

Absolutely the most amazing food. Steaks were prepared perfectly & the horseradish sauce is best I’ve ever had. Strawberry cheesecake is so light & fluffy. We are at the bar & the bartenders were so enjoyable & kind.

If you're here for the steak, it's probably a good choice. Crab cake was too salty; mushroom ravioli was delicious. Service was ok. The server wasn't extremely knowledgeable about wine. Ambiance was lively but not too loud.

My dry aged ribeye had a liver after taste. I did not not enjoy any of my bites. It was cooked right, medium, but not flavorful like a steak should taste.

Swift & Sons is a decent steakhouse, but nothing special.
The service is a bit obnoxious, but not particularly good.

The sides are on the fatty side, especially the potato mash.

Benjamin was our server and he was outstanding. I had friends in from Australia and he was so knowledgeable about the wine selections. Benjamin suggested our menu and wine pairings for the evening and we could not have been happier. The service he provided was phenomenal. I even called two days after our dining experience to see if he would be working Monday evening, so we could come in and dine with him again. The worlds needs more Benjamin’s. Swift and Sons is very lucky to have such a special person.

It was everything we expected and more. We were there with clients who absolutely had the greatest time. The area is so cool and the restaurant is even more beautiful than the photos. We loved the bar too and I had the nicest glass of sparkling rose. Thank you for a great experience. We will come back when in Chicago again.

Worst $60 steak I have ever wasted money on. I complained to the server and someone who appeared to be a Manager. Nothing but that’s the way dry aged steak is supposed to be. Ridiculous. Mistakes happen but finer restaurants should take responsibility and correct the problem. This was my last visit. Too many other restaurants in Chicago.

Service and restaurant are excellent. Drinks though are overpriced and the steaks were good, but not exceeding expectations to be some of the most expensive in Chicago for similar.

I’m still shocked with our experience. From the time we arrived, until the time we left, service was simply outstanding. We had the best waiters ever (Mark & Cody). They both had us laughing until we had tears in our eyes. They were extremely personable, and made our date night simply amazing. The food was very good, and reasonably priced for a steak house. It’s fair to say we will definitely be back right after our baby is born!! Great job to the entire team at Swift & Sons.

Went there for my boyfriends Birthday and we enjoyed it. He really had a great time. The food was amazing, steak melted like butter....Music was really good just challenging to hear with noise level. Will definitely go back. Recommend asking for a table away from stairs if it’s a special occasion.

I enjoyed my steak. Others at my table said there's was cooked too long on the outside with a little burnt taste. The baked potato was excellent. Asparagus and broccoli were a bit overcooked. Overall we enjoyed the meal and the ambiance. Would go back.

Got there and our reservation was supposed to be for 6 people and they only had a reservation for 2 people. They wanted us to sit in the bar. Steak was undercooked and sent it back and I think they microwaved it. Save your money and go to Bavette's.
