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

The presentation of the menu items are like works of art. Jimmy, the chef / owner, is a great talent and has a knack for combining food flavors that will blow your taste buds away. Menu items are changed and / or replaced weekly so there's always a new tasty surprise. The service is second to none with servers dressed... More

Swallow is conveniently located next to the Paramount theater in Huntington and offers a nice election of small plates. Best bet is to order several small plates for sharing. I enjoyed the crab cakes, mushroom toast with cognac and cream and the shredded chicken tostada.

Swallow has so many great choices to try and to share. We were a party of three adults and ordered 5 plates to share which was plenty. The fried asparagus, sliders and crab cakes were especially good. The food is well prepared and seasoned. The wait syaff was very attentive --checking on the interest to place additional orders including drinks... More

For those who had the absolute pleasure of dining at the original Swallow, you will remember a small restaurant with a bar and only a few tables. When you dined at the original it was a true food experience and the food was excellent. The owners would take some time to talk to you about the menu and the selections... More

This place takes tapas to a whole new level. Eat as little or as much as you like. Great wines, too. We shared 3 items between us (not as hungry as usual!) plenty, delicious and satisfying. Come. Enjoy. Swallow.
