I LOVE Love this place as does all my friends . My cousin is addicted and always brings his clients there. There food is so different and the chef always makes food that is different than other restaurants and too tasty and chic at the same time . It is tapas style but you are always very full even if...

One of my go to spots. They change the menu often enough to keep you coming again and again; and I've never had anything I didn't like. The mac and cheese is phenomenal. They also have hot phuk noodles right now which I highly recommend. My boyfriend loves the candies pork belly. They also have amazing amazing brussel sprouts (... More

Location is in the heart of it all, right next to the Paramount, so it's great for a pre-show dinner. The staff is good with monitoring that kind of timing, etc. Just make sure to make reservations. The ambiance is fun, albeit a little loud (acoustics) when it gets crowded. The food is wonderful; tapas style. No matter what variety... More

Restaurant money is made more from drinks than from food. Unfortunately the bar drinks often leave a lot to be desired. Mixed drinks are often very short especially with the Martini. Way short most often from the female bartender. Not so much from the other behind the bar. Some bar drinks are meant to be stirred NOT shaken. A terrible... More

Swallow used to be one of my favorite restaurants in Huntington when it was a small, intimate place. Maybe they are understaffed, but both times I've been there since they expanded, our waiters seemed annoyed and overworked. It took 45 minutes for someone to come over and ask us if we wanted a drink. Then our food came out before... More

Swallow is an unusual restaurant in that all their dishes are Tapas type, small sharing plates....but don't let the small sharing description mislead you. These are fully prepared dishes, beautifully cooked and plated with beautiful arrangements and garnishes. We ordered about 5 plates. Each plate is manhattan worthy! Oh...and the food is delicious! The craft of cooking is really on... More

Very cool concept restaurant with interesting items on an extensive tapas menu! It;s got a very small bar area so without reservations, the wait may be tight.

Love the vibe. Wasn't impressed by the bartender who scratched his foot, under his sock, and then didn't wash his hands. He also kept dropping things. We were only here for drinks before a show, and they were good. Just turned off by the bartender.

The food is always good here. My wife have been going here since before they expanded and added all the extra seating. The food is good, innovative and not terribly pricy. We ordered like 6 plates...it's a tapas type place. Our waitress suggested we order 4 plates, so we ordered 6. We ate everything, but could have gotten away with... More

We actually visit Swallow a lot, the food is excellent, we rarely make a reservation as we tend to eat at off peak times. On this occasion I was left with a very sour taste from the hostess. We walked in at 5.15pm to get a table for 5 people with no reservation. Despite the restaurant being totally empty, the... More
