Great food and very friendly service!
Went to Swordfish for the first time to celebrate Valentine's Day with a nice dinner post V-Day. The experience was phenomenal! And we will be back!! My wife had been a few times before several years ago with our daughter but this was my first opportunity. Our waiter (Dakota) was excellent! His recommendations were spot on and delicious to say the least. The owner was kind enough to present us with a sample of their Baby Shark roll and even gave us an after dinner sushi desert snack that was so good from presentation to taste that words alone can't describe. I highly recommend Swordfish and can't wait to go back!
Our server Mae was awesome and the owner was very nice about giving us samples of items
Our server was very attentive and food was delicious. However, we had a 7pm reservation and arrived just before. Nobody greeted us or even spoke to us until almost 7:20. Yes it was busy, but would have been nice if someone would have acknowledged us.
Poor service, unorganized seating, long waits with no explanation or attempt to improve experience.
Even though reservations are made through Open Table the restaurant writes everything out on paper and frequently can’t find the reservation. I witnessed this twice while waiting in line. The space is incredibly cramped where the tables are separated just barely enough to pass by. Atmosphere makes this place not worth trying again- poor layout and very poor organization at hostess stand.
I am a long time patron of Swordfish .. it has been one of my favorite restaurants for many years. That being said, my Valentines Day experience at the restaurant was a huge disappointment... service was extremely slow, the “Ocean Drive” I ordered was fishy to the point of being inedible and I had to send it back... during which my husbands dinner still hadn’t arrived to the table. I wanted the sushi removed from our bill but was coerced into having it remade when I had already lost my appetite. Nothing comped from the bill... that’s fine.. I understand it’s a busy holiday... looks like the restaurant was simply ill-prepared.
All in all a sad experience... should have gone for a Lou Malnati’s heart shaped pizza.
Welcoming Chef prepared very impressive Swordfish plate for two. The sushi was fresh and delicious. The presentation was artistic and over the top amazing!
Great food, great service!
Fantastic food! The owner takes such pride in his creations.
This place is great! We have lived nearby for over 10 years, and we finally tried it. My husband loves sushi, I do not...we were still able to enjoy a reasonably priced and delicious meal together! He tried nagiri and several maki rolls, and loved all of them. I had the spicy chicken, and it was delicious! Also some of the most amazing tempura I've had. Definitely give this place a try!!
Good food and good service. Worth a visit if you want to try Japanese food.
As always, our expectations were exceeded!
We Ordered 2 different kinds of fish’s, both dry and no flavor
We have been many times but this last visit was outstanding in all ways. The sushi was the best we have ever had and the staff were perfection.
This is the 4th time we've eaten at Swordfish in two months, and we keep coming back for the food, service, and special tasting the chef always sends to our table. We love coming to Swordfish for their consistently great food and service. We will be back again and again.
Quality food and service . Never a bad food experience
Wonderful presentation, large selection and great service. Prices a bit high relative to other sushi places, but the food was good.
Service was excellent. Had to send a steak back because not done enough. But both server and manager came over to make sure it was okay. Excellent customer service. Meal was delicious.
I’m on the fence; this is the first time where I really disliked my meal. I will give it one more try.
Try the salmon with truffle and salt. Simply awesome!
Always great. The nicest people work there.
We love this place, love the atmosphere and the food, best tempura around and excellent service
Great food, great, very attentive service, we had s great time!! :)
We used to love swordfish and hadn’t been in awhile. The service was slow although very friendly. The food quality just wasn’t what it used to be.
We love Swordfish
Love the new menu! Our servers May and Jackson are awesome!
Always good service and great food! Our favorite sushi place in the western suburbs.
Sushi is my favorite meal, so I am particular. Best sushi in Far west suburbs. It rivals and even surpasses some of the best sushi restaurants in Chicago. My other favorite located west of Chicago is Nabuki in Hinsdale.
Swordfish has consistently fresh and full flavored sushi along with and good size portions of sashimi (my preference) and nagiri. Excellent rolls too-try the baby shark roll, red dragon and oceans 13, just to name a few of the amazing rolls they offer. The ginger dressing is the best ginger dressing I have ever had. For sake, try the Drunken Snapper.
Ambience is nice and if u want more privacy ask for a booth. Also lots of fun sitting at the sushi bar and speaking with the chefs. They are always nice and happy to discuss the latest specials. Jenny is at the front desk and consistently makes customers feel welcomed and is genuinely interested in knowing if you had a great meal. She sets the stage for a great dining experience. Sometimes the restaurant is so busy that it might take a while to get your order, but the servers do their best while you wait. Make a reservation in advance. Enjoy!
Food took forever to come out and was just OK. Priced pretty high for a sushi place. Probably won't go back unfortunately.
Swordfish is a great place to eat, atmosphere is grand but towards evening the music gets too loud. we are not sushi eaters so we always order from the kitchen. Their dumplings are great but only four in an order. We generally have tempura shrimp with vegetables, adding two extra shrimp with each order, but we tried something different this time but didn’t care for it.
We will do back but only get our past items
Good food all around. Apps, sushi and entrees are all served quickly and good quality. No issue with drinks or service. Received complimentary two piece sushi as well.
new owner and new attitude...
staff ALL will visit your table
and ask how THEY are doing...
is the food good?
Chef greets you as always
Going back soon
Always great service. Food is also very consistent.
This is a favorite spot of mine and we are regulars for special occasions for my family. Relatively new ownership and feel the quality tapered just a bit bringing from a 5 to a four star. Service was good from our server and we were especially helped by the lady who seats and manages who has been the face of the restaurant for as long as I’ve gone there. I tried new rolls that were good but feel like trying to hard for unique combinations when the more simple rolls have been so good for so long. Well still keep coming back and it is still a favorite spot. Would like to see some more whiskeys in bar especially Japanese varieties.
Amazing food and service. Freshest sushi around.
As always the food and the service are great. I always have the sashimi bento box and it is always great. The poke bowl was also very good.
Always seems to be way understaffed in table service. Food presentation gone downhill over the years.
