One of Atlanta's hippest and most modern restaurants, 4th & Swift serves minimal, locally sourced food in a pared-down industrial space with a lot of electricity in the air.
Jay's BBQ short rib with spiced chocolate molé is a Southern-Mex mash up that can't be beat
Speckled sea trout... Nice change from regular trout. Great wine list, excellent desserts
Wonderful! – By far my favorite restaurant in Atlanta and I love to eat out. I think it is wonderful from the appetizers (the heirloom tomato salad is so good) to the Three Little Pigs entree and dessert is always a treat. The service has always been good. Definitely worth every penny.
I’ve been to this place once and I am planning to go back to try the other entrées on their menu. I had a very pleasant experience when we visited it and the food was absolutely yummy. The place was cool and the service was terrific. I know that it’s worth another visit.
Warm Ambiance and Delicious Food! – It was midtown restaurant week so two friends and I decided to try out 4th and Swift and Im very glad we did. We had a six oclock reservation so perhaps because it was such an early dinner we did not experience the crowd that other reviewers are mentioned. All the staff were very friendly and hospitable and our waitress was perfect: knowledgeable about the food and wine, amiable and checked on us just enough! I had to try out 3 wines before decidng on a glass but she was very obliging and did not seem to mind my pickiness. I had corn soup, leg of lamb and Creme brulee for dessert. The soup and lamb were very tasty. The creme brulee was pretty good too, with roasted strawberries and shortbread. I tried my friends flounder...not bad but not a cause for glorious praise either. My other friend had the salmon small plate which was delicious and a lovely plate of oxtail and gnocchi...my favourite of the evening. I most certanly recommend this ambient and understated restaurant.
Beware--This Place is for Foodies! – My husband picked this restaurant for my birthday, and I was looking forward to eating there. However, I was very shocked to find out that this restaurant did not have regular ketchup. (They had this habanero concoction that was really spicy, and I could not eat.) Unfortunately, I did not learn this news until after I ordered my meal that required ketchup, so my dinner was ruined. The waitress told me that she also did not understand why the cheff refused to stock regular ketchup, but the manager was truly disappointing. He stood beside our table at least five times as he catered to the table next to us during the first 45 minutes that we were there. Then he finally asked how my meal was, and when I complained about them not having ketchup, he said, "Ok. Thank you." and abruptly walked away. He was very rude and short with us but he was ingratiating to the other tables. Overall, the food was okay, but I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone.
One of my favorite restaurants in Atlanta! – I loved this restaurant! We arrived about 30 minutes before our reservation so we could have a drink at the bar. The bartender was very attentive, and I really loved the ambiance. When we arrived at the table, we were greeted promptly and were very excited to look over the nice wine list and had a really hard time deciding what to order...everything sounded so great. We started with the mussels, which were hands down the best mussels I have had in Atlanta. Then we shared the brussels sprouts salad...delicious! My boyfriend had the veal chop and it was awesome. I had one of the specials, which was a lightly breaded Carolina Flounder and it was perfect. Our wine was great, too! We were very happy with our experience and can't wait to go again!
I was disappointed – I was so excited to try 4th and Swift for my birthday and asked my husband to make a reservation. We got there and we both immediately liked the ambiance, even though it wasn't very crowded. Our server didn't seem to notice us for a while and just wasn't very attentive throughout our time there, even when there were only about 3 other tables there after we had been there about 20 minutes (which was a little depressing). And my husband had written in the online reservation that it was my birthday AND told them again when he confirmed the reservation that day but there was never any mention of it when we were there. It just wasn't special at all. To me, the best quality a restaurant has is good service that makes you feel special and glad you made the effort and spent the money. I did not at all get this feeling at 4th and Swift and am sorry that I wasted my birthday dinner on it.
I'm a new regular here. – Look no further for food people like to eat. We really enjoyed our dinner, highly recommend the duck pie appetizer. The three entrees at our table were all outstanding. interesting approach to menu - a seasonal menu and an additive daily special menu (multiple app. + entree selections). service was attentive without being over bearing - good server knowledge of the menu. Bottom line, the food rocks ... I will be returning with friends soon.
Best place EVER! – Wow! This was a homerun. A girlfriend and I try new restraunts around town for our "Girls Night" every month...and 4th & Swift did not disappoint. We had a drink at the bar and decided to just eat at the bar because the bartenders were wonderful. The drinks were exotic, beer/wine list impressive, and the food exquisite. I will definitely be back. We tried: Skate Wing, Flounder, Meat/Cheese Plate, Churros
