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.

This place is amazing. We had dinner at 11pm there and the food and service was still spectacular. Cocktails were also delicious. Can’t wait to go back.

We had a reservation but ended up waiting 30 plus minutes. What’s the point in having a reservation? The food was great.

The food quality is good but most everything is skimpy, not what you expect from a Chicago Steakhouse. Drinks are small pours. Most wine is a 4x markup. Beef Wellington is good but not worth over $100 just to add pastry crust to a regular sized Filet. Add on King Crab for $32 is a half-leg. Desserts are very small portions. Sides are ok sized. Underwhelming experience.

Good dinner, GREAT Brussel Sprouts...
Met a close friend for dinner and we were seated immediately (made a 5:30p reservation). I picked the spot for the Waygu steak but I should have picked it for the brussel sprouts...THEY WERE GREAT!

The whole experience was awesome. Our server Humberto was incredible and made it an awesome evening. The shrimp cocktail and oysters to start were so fresh and amazing. I personally got the Japanese Wagyu and it is worth the price point 1000%. Overall it was a great night out with family and will be back ASAP.

My husband and I had such a wonderful evening. I wish I would have remembered our waitresses name. She was just so attentive and amazing. She when we needed something. As well as gave us what ever we needed
As a couple with two young kids we do not get out by ourselves very often and we were so happy that we came here. I would recommend this to all my family and friends.

No Lobster surf and turf left at a steakhouse, talk about disappointing. The 8oz filet was okay, nothing special. Appetizers come out within a minute of ordering, which I found extremely odd. The desserts were the best part of the meal! Pick a different Chicago steakhouse, this one is sub par.

Swift & Sons is probably one of the best steakhouses in Chicago. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed with my experience. We made a reservation for NYE dinner. We set down at our table 40 minutes past our reservation time. And it was the only BOKA restaurant I've experienced where they didn't accommodate guests for waiting that long of time especially with a reservation. Rather, we felt rushed to order our meal since the waiter said the kitchen closes in 20 minutes from when we finally set down at the table. We received our bill while we still had plenty of wine left in the bottle. We had cold platter, rib eye, half chicken and cream of spinach. The food was excellent and the restaurant is absolutely gorgeous as it was designed by Avroko. But I feel that their service could be improved.

When we arrived to Swift and Sons, the hostess's were a little standoffish towards my party. They told us that our table would be ready very soon and that we should go to the bars while we wait, which i already knew meant that they were running behind. Granted, it was new years eve, but we waited an extra 35 minutes to be seated at our table.

While waiting we were sitting in the bar area around 5 plus empty tables with 'reserved' signs on them.... cute. The bartender we had was not friendly (literally watched shorty talk ugly on other people sitting at the bar like no thanks baby) and our server was mediocre sadly. The steaks were great and the rest of the food was pretty okay but i have to say that the service here really had me shook to a point where i wouldn't return knowing the other steakhouses around the cities level of service.

All was very good. Ambiance and service was very very good. The food was good but not excellent. My wife’s filet was undercooked and had to be sent back. The quality of my ribeye was good not great. Very disappointed with the “surf” of my meal. The lobster was not a tail I’m drawn butter but rather lobster meat in a thermador sauce. Dessert menu was very sparse with only a few options. Would be much better with a wider variety of chocolate desserts, some options for cake and pie and maybe a mousse.

Expect fantastic service and hospitality in a warm, inviting room that's among the best in Chicago. The steaks, of course, are what one would expect for the price, and the side dishes are a step above most other steakhouse staples.

In a city known for steaks, it is hard to set yourself apart. Swift and Sons is doing just that with impeccable service and great atmosphere. We hit it off with the bartender and ended up passing up our main dining room seats to stay seated in the bar area. Our meal became a 3 1/2 hour experience with great conversation and amazing food and wine pairings. I am sure the main dining room is just as great, but sit at the bar and ask for Adam. You can thank me later.
