This the first time my wife and I had dinner at Swizz and we highly recommend it. We both used the pre-theater menu and our salad choice, the grilled salmon and veggies, and the pear tart were outstanding. We'll be back again.

We stumbled upon Swizz on one of our many nights out in Hells Kitchen. It’s tucked away just off 8th but it’s a gem of a find. Our fondue was delicious and the wine suggested by the Maitre’d was perfect. The only down side really was that once he recommended the wine, he wasn’t that attentive. Given it was a weekday and the restaurant was not that busy, I would have expected more. He just seemed to be running around and not focused and so we felt like we were left alone when he should have been attending to us. Despite this, we still had a great dinner.

I lived in Switzerland for many years. NYC lost many good Swiss restaurants over the years. This is one of the very few left in town. The food is very Swiss and good. Quantity is too small.

The food wasn't very good. It lacked taste and was nothing to be excited about. I would call it a subpar meal, except that it was a 3-digit bill for my date and I. That's just too much money for food that is so forgettable. I would go somewhere else, if you're going to spend $50/per person on food you should get something amazing, not something so blah.

I was looking for an interesting choice for a restaurant to celebrate my birthday. I found Swizz through an online search, and obsessively checked as many reviews as possible. (one of the guests in our party is notoriously "difficult" in his food opinions.) I must say that the entire evening was excellent. From the professionalism to the response of my online reservation, I sensed this would be a great evening, and I was not disappointed. Upon arrival, the host was incredibly warm and charming (and good looking too!) And helped us choose a nice Riesling as we waited for our guests to arrive. We decided to have fondue for each course (Cheese, Chinoise, and Chocolate). The cheese fondue (Napoleon) was gorgeous! It had a perfect consistency and had depth of flavor that was not overpowering. Clearly, excellent quality of ingredients went into the dish. (As a side note, my partner who really hates cheese gave the Napoleon a try and loved it!) and we decided to try the Raclette, which was very good, and a unique taste of the traditional Swiss dish. For Desert, we had the Toblerone and the Jacques Torres. Both of which were both euphoric. The ambiance of the space is perfectly comfortable, and the staff is incredibly accommodating. A lovely menu without being too fussy. Perfect for conversation and enjoying each other’s company. This was a great experience. Highly recommended. I'll absolutely return.

We went here the other day with the hopes of having a legitimate raclette experience. To my great chagrin, however, the $35 per-person raclette emerged from the kitchen without the (necessary) raclette-maker. The quality of the cheese was actually quite good, but the plates consisted of nothing more than melted cheese, pickles, and baby potatoes. By the time the bill came, it was nearly $100, and we really had nothing to show for it... Fortunately enough, I was able to talk them into slashing the price a bit, but needless to say, I will not be back.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at Swizz last Saturday night ...We were celebrating my husband’s Birthday. We started with the chicken-duck and black truffle pate with apple celery salad. Followed by the traditional cheese fondue with apples and air-dried beef. The bottle of white wine from Switzerland, recommended by our waiter, worked perfectly with our amazing fondue. We finished our meal with a wonderful chocolate Toblerone fondue, with Canadian Ice Wine. Our waiter Iqabal was fantastic – he was well informed, made excellent recommendations and was very attentive. Overall an excellent meal and we’ll be back again soon!
