Description: With a man cave feel and in-house smoker that can be smelled from a block away, Swine has received a warm welcome to the Coral Gables neighborhood. Maintaining the same top-notch techniques and standards of hospitality as its sister restaurant, Swine offers a constantly evolving food and beverage menu that work together to create the perfect Southern meal in a down-home, feel good environment. "From the moment you walk in the door, you are completely transported out of Miami," Kunkel says. "Swine provides a full dining experience with an interior that reflects the refinement of the South." It feels barn-like because it is in fact made from reclaimed wood of an actual barn in South Carolina. Housed inside is the state-of-the-art smoker and wood-fired grills, adding a signature flavor and level of authenticity unique to the restaurant.

“Great Food ! hit and miss with servce :(”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Another great eating institution in Coral Gables !! Unique Southern modern fusion cuisine, the Brisket is a must, but really everything is excellent , you will not be disappointed. My only negative feedback is that out of the 5 times I've eaten there, the service has been average at best on three (3) occasions, one (1) time I rate poor and another when we had a party of about 14 seated at the long table the service was excellent. For people that do not like a lively loud atmosphere I don't recommend you go and that is almost all the time, I think it's a great ambience personally. I recommend you go with a larger party (min.4) , the servings are big and you are able to share and enjoy several different appetizers and entrees, plus as I said it's a lively place and you can have a real fun meal and drinks of course, lol ! To me service is very important, but I will return and give them a chance to redeem themselves. If you are a foodie, then this place is a must !

“Worth the hype”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

Stopped in late on a Sunday and was pleasantly surprised. So much PR behind this place usually means an overrated experience but in this case it was excellent. Server was knowledgeable and efficient. The kitchen relatively quick (though there were only a few tables occupied). The look and ambience have been praised in other reviews so I'll just second it.

All that said, the food was the clear winner here. The "burnt ends" were nothing like I've had in other "real" BBQ joints but were meaty and amazing. The bacon & waffles were an artery-clogging treat. Highly recommended. The chili is a must-try (I know, I know, you've had chili everywhere but it's that good).

The drink list is creative and the liquor list is almost too big. Speaking of which, be warned that the plates are in general very very large. My wife and I like to try many dishes (we tried 6 that night) but it's tough when they are that big. Lots of leftovers but also a hefty bill.

“Awesome restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is amazing. From the decor to the service, especially the desserts. The food is unbelievable, and thé Swine burger is really awesome !!!!!
You have to know that the food is Great, the location is perfect (close to a parking) and the service is really on top. Big portions and all fresh, nothing frozen, all organic. Prices are a little bit more high.
Good table good restaurant.

“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and i visited Swine yesterday around 7 pm our first night out after two months of being home with our newborn baby girl. Very good food, Mac & cheese and smoked brisket amazing. I had a drink call " an old cuban" pretty interesting mixed of bacardi and champagne, but not worth $18. The ambiance was pleasant and the service extraordinary our waiter i believe his name was ( david) very nice and well trained. The only negative comment would be They need a bigger venue, it felt like I couldn't walk because the hallway was so small. Other than that, very nice will be back !!
