This was our first visit to Swallow which is located in the heart of downtown Huntington; but it certainly won't be our last! Swallow offers an eclectic array of delicious small plates. Each dish is enough for two people to share. The plates are beautifully presented and each of the selections we made was excellent. We started with the exceptional Butternut Squash Cappuccino Soup, followed that with "fall off the bone" BBQ ribs and then the Angus Beef Sliders with Brie and Tomato Jam on Brioche Rolls. To that we added a side order of the spectacular house frites which were served with mayonnaise on the side. In addition to the great food; the service was every bit as special and attentive. Swallow affords a very attractive decor and some available outdoor seating. A "real find" and definitely "a keeper"!

Went with a group of three and had no clue how to order. Our waitress Sara, with the flowers in her hair, assisted us in helping decide what to order and was an extremely good waitress. All the dishes came out perfectly timed, with a smooth flow from dish to dish. We each shared, so the portion size was perfect. What we loved were the clams, shrimp, Mac & cheese, asparagus fries and the steak. Decor was cool. Cocktails were great, but pricy.

Right next door to Paramount theater. Decor is good. Service is fair. TINY martini cost $15. Thai calamari is good. Mac and cheese is good. Fried chicken wings are undercooked/tasteless. Asian ribs are mediocre. Sliders are below average, yet pricey at 2/$12. Pork buns are small and fatty, at 3/$13. There is NO reason to eat here.

I absolutely loved this restaurant before it was renovated... and now I have fallen in love with it all over again post-expansion! The décor is rustic-sexy - sliding library ladder behind the bar, old movies projected on the wall, amazing art on the walls! The staff is incredibly attentive and on-point! But what really keeps us coming back here is that the food is phenomenal!!!
In a small plate restaurant I must say, phenomenal is not a word I use often because there are usually a few hits and a few misses when ordering so many items but Swallow on the other hand was 10 for 10! One dish was as tasty as the next, the only problem we have is deciding which to pick each time we go!
