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.

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.

Reviews of this restaurant describing how beautiful the interior is are correct; this is a big, beautiful high energy restaurant. And the food is outstanding, matched with friendly, attentive and very good service. If you’re looking for a great Steak House experience in Chicago, this is a very good choice. I had the Japanese Wagyu and it was worth the splurge.

One of my favorite spots in the city. The Hamachi Crudo and wagyu carpaccio are great appetizers. I am also a big fan of the Australian Wagyu. Overall, a great spot. A tad expensive, but sometimes the best stuff is.

Staff was great and acknowledged a birthday which was greatly appreciated!
My steak was delicious but all other food was just okay; not bad but nothing that made me say "Wow!"
Was just a reminder that paying more doesn't necessarily translate to unforgettable taste.
Drinks were bomb! Very tasty.
It was alright though.

Swift and Sons is our favorite steakhouse! The starters are luscious, the sides are perfectly complimentary, and the desserts are inventively addictive—-especially the chocolate trolley offerings! And the steaks? This restaurant does Chicago proud with the most amazing steaks of all!
The service is always exemplary, and the atmosphere is warm, familiar, and inviting!

Food is always great! That’s why I keep going back. I had the 22oz ribeye and my girlfriend had the filet. Our server recommended the asparagus as a side and it was delicious. Cocktails were spot on as well. Service was a little slow but understandable given how busy they were. Overall, another great experience at Swift & Sons!

Loved this restaurant. Wine list great, food amazing, service attentive but not overbearing. I realize the trend these days is for a livelier ambience but the only drawback was it was st times a bit noisier then I care for. We had a table of six and I could not easily hear the other side of the table. 9/10

Swift & Sons was very nice, but I did not realize that there was a prix fixe menu for Mother's Day. All of the entrees were very good, but I was shocked at the price ($60 minimum per person), and this was never mentioned during booking or when I called to confirm. We would have been better off coming for dinner and ordering one of the restaurants famous steak entrees instead.
