I really like this restaurant. Same owner as Cafe Ponte, which I also love. Good food, good friendly service and a good sized menu. Great spot for a date night, but I wouldn't bring kids necessarily. I love the caesar salad, the charcuterie boards are great and really I haven't had anything I didn't like. More...
We enjoyed a lovely light and tasty meal after strolling through first Sunday in Hyde Park village.Luckily, a patio table was available so our pups could enjoy the day too! We enjoyed the tasty tomato soup, Mediterranean board and kale salad. All were very good, the board was large enough for 4 but we devoured it! Asked for some carrot sticks for dipping plus the pups needed a snack too!Service was very professional, thanks Zachary! Will be back for dinner and believe us, it is rare in town to find someplace you would return to for dining.... More...
We loved everything at this restaurant! Our server was SO sweet and gave thorough recommendations while answering our questions. Get the kale salad, like everyone says. It's a decent size and I would recommend sharing. For my birthday dessert, they brought out a confetti cookie on a HEATED wooden tray. So cool! More...
Love it here! The service is amazing and food is always delicious. We usually come for dinner and love the kale salad, hot chicken and so many more. We love to sit outside on a nice day. They have valet that you can use from your phone (I never carry cash). More...
Took my mom here for the first time while she was in town! The tables were close together and it was pretty loud so it was hard to talk, but that is my only complaint. We started with a cheese board, which had a lot going on and all was delicious! Then for dinner I had the scallops and my mom had the snapper. We finished with the bread pudding. I'll def be back with some friends! More...
Doesn't get any better than this. Unique healthy tasty dishes. Menu selections are added/deleted to keep variety interesting and fresh. The kale salad is packed with nutrition with creamy light dressing. Although not found on dinner menu (lunch only), waitress had salmon added. Salmon is fresh, tasty and cooked to perfection - medium rare. More...
The best food and the best service, hands down. Been here a few times and have always been satisfied. Basic staples such as French Fries and garnished and cooked at the right temperature. The shared entrees can feed a whole table and then some. The desserts are good too. You should get a reservation rather than wait for a table. More...
This place is great! The food is imaginative and accessible.I have been here three times each was fun and I can not wait to go again.
For Christmas, I chose to surprise my husband with a "taste of the town." Nothing is better than time together over delicious food - and we KNOW food! Self proclaimed foodies, we take our time learning restaurants and menus so we can make sure to make the most of our experience. It's not every day we have a babysitter for as long as we want and we were determined to make it worth it! On Swann did NOT disappoint! After spending the day tasting our way through Tampa, we landed upon our dinner reservation and honestly, we should have come here first and saved the appetite to taste our way through every item on the menu. Southern food, especially done right, is some of our favorite so clearly the hot chicken didn't hurt our feelings one bit! Lamb meatballs, short rib ragu and the pork chops were excellently prepared and presented. We are also major grits lovers (Anson Mills!) and friends, let me tell you about the grits!!! Order them by the bucket! Also, the kale salad should just happen as a prerequisite to anything else. The ambiance, the SERVICE and the meal exceeded our expectations from start to finish. Our glasses were never empty and our silverware offered new with each course- whether it was our server attending to us or someone else walking by and making sure we had what we needed. Amazing evening all around. Do it; you won't be sad you did! More...
Went here for my birthday 12/11. Made reservations same day and very easy. Both of us had drinks which we thought to be excellent. The kale salad is must. And then we shared the scallops which were cooked and flavored well. Honestly that was more than enough food for us. It is pricey but I believe it to be worth the cost. More...
Always an excellent time, great food, fantastic service and spectacular drink selection. Just had Eagle Rare 17 year along with Thomas Handy. Employees there know their stuff, are enthusiasts and treat you like family. I strongly recommend going. More...
First visit to On Swann last weekend. My husband and I had dinner at the bar including delicious kale & quinoa salad and lamb meatballs. Service was good and food runner Christopher was really over the top good- attentive, requested feedback and came back and checked on us. I would hire him in a heartbeat. Great place for apps and drinks. More...
This is our favorite local spot! We try to venture out for date night occasionally & often just wish we would have went with our "go to! " Great atmosphere! Bar has excellent service & will make you a (delicious) special drink on request! I recommend a reservation, the meatballs over cheese grits, oysters, the pork chop & the burger! All absolutely amazing! More...
Pamela Earls Steenbergen
Amazing brunch on a gorgeous Sunday afternoon. Excellent service. Outdoor seating that is pet friendly!
One diner said it was the best burger in town. The wait staff was attentive and my water glass was never empty.
Cocktails like no otherrrrrr! We tried several appetizers and our favorites were the mushrooms, lamb meatballs, & oysters! We will be back for brunch soon! Xoxo More...
Went for brunch with several friends. This wonderful restaurant is located in Hyde Park, just on the outside of the village. I've been wanting to try this restaurant for some time. I'm glad I got an opportunity! It was really enjoyable. The interior is spectacular! High ceilings and interesting chandeliers.The menu was interesting. I had the crab omelette that had white asparagus, herb ricotta, chive hollandaise. (I substituted the garlic crushed potato for a side of bacon)& mixed greens salad. Delicious!Several of my friends raved about the mushroom toast! It's sourdough toast with roasted mushrooms, goat cheese mousse, tarragon cream sauce & fried egg with side of herb salad. Great dish!Another friend had a Chicken salad...gem lettuce, tomato, bacon, corn, avocado, farm egg, radish, & green goddess dressing! Very good.Dessert we shared a White Chocolate Bread Pudding: made with challah, four roses bourbon caramel, & vanilla gelato... amazing!Overall great experience, definitely recommend! More...
Dean G. Davis
Beautiful ambiance and excellent menu variety. Highly recommended.
I went here for my birthday lunch and i love their service here. The food was really delicious too
One of my favorite spots in Tampa! Been there for brunch, lunch and dinner and their dishes are great. Went for dinner last and shared the Arancini as a starter. I had the Steak Frites.
I truly enjoyed my dining experience at On Swann and the service was stellar. My business colleague and I both ordered the skirt steak with fries which also included a side of mix greens and bone marrow with chimichuri sauce. Deliciously flavorful. I will definitely return next time I'm in Tampa. More...
Excellent food at atmosphere
Great location in Hyde Park. I was very pleased with the ambiance, service and food.
Sean Ryan Connolly
Trendy, spacious, good drinks, good foods. Perfect brief mtg place for charcuterie and drinks.
The restaurant, service and food was on point with all the great reviews I read before dining here. Our server Matt was attentive and had great timing the entire evening. We shared the oyster starter, my husband had the snapper special and I had the short rib pasta. Spectacular! More...
WAs great!!! the food was really good!
I've been here for lunch and dinner. Both menus are great. Great atmosphere, food is amazing, drinks are yummy. Service is great! Can't say enough good things.
I've come to On Swann a few times, and everything has always been delicious! The beef carpaccio with truffle vinaigrette, hot chicken, and kale salad are some of my favorites! Also, the waitstaff and hostesses have always been so kind and knowledgeable. More...
Came to On Swann tonight, experience was great. Very energetic atmosphere and the food/drinks were delicious. I recommend the We Need To Talk drink (a little small though), and the cheese board, and the Scorchio pasta. Nice staff. One employee Christopher, who was bussing/team servicing our table and surrounding ones; was very friendly and super welcoming. He should be a server or bartender with such a bubbly personality! Great evening overall. More...
Excellent foodService 5***** Many thanksDelicious cocktail & pinot noir red wine
Great bread pudding
Everything was absolutely delicious. Kale salad and Cuban sandwich (which I am typically not a fan of) are a must! Exceptional service and recommendations by Nikole!
One of my favorite restaurants in all of Tampa! Drinks are always top notch here and the scallops... unreal. Make sure to get a side of the rice risotto with it. Ugh so dang good!
Love the food here. I'll admit it I'm a good snob having lived in LA 14 years. This place is one of the best in town. Tuna crudo - pate - kAle salad are some of my faves.
Excellent food and service. We have been twice and loved everything. I have had their ribeye, scallops, tuna crudo, salad and a pasta dish. Can't wait to go back and try more. Nice outside patio If the weather is nice. More...
Food and service was lovely A mistake on the bill was a concern!!Thanks Dylan for your response- the error was quickly and graciously corrected- without any issue - so glad because as I said food service atmosphere were top notch ! !I'd definitely recommend it and love to return on my next visit to Tampa!! More...
One of the best restaurants in Tampa. Great food, service, vibe and ambiance. Everyone we bring there loves it and wants to return.
Food and service was lovely A mistake on the bill was a concern!!The error was corrected without an issue . We enjoyed the lunch - food was delicious Presentation and amount were appropriate.
John Budish, Jr.
One of the best meals in a long time. Too notch food and service throughout.
I brought a group of 10 here a few weeks ago for a business dinner. I've taken this group to most of the nicer restaurants in Tampa, and this was one of the best experiences we've had. The food was delicious and the service was amazing - our server answered every question we threw at her, made great recommendations, and got every entree plate out at the same time (which can be tricky for a big group). The restaurant was bustling but not too noisy for conversation, and the ambiance hits that perfect balance between casual and fancy.The prices are high enough that I won't be coming here every week, but I've definitely added to our "nice dinner out" rotation, and I can't wait to come back. More...
One of my favorite places in Tampa. Food is amazing. Best Kale Salad - to die for! Great steaks, great everything.
Overall amazing food, their spicy martini and Arancini balls are the absolute bomb!! We love coming here on a regular basis .
Great place. Good food , drinks are great
Fantastic meal, drinks and superb service. Can't wait to go back to try more from this delicious menu. Thank you On Swann for a delicious meal!
spectacular food and service. We will be back.
Great service, great cocktails! Try their signature Old Fashioned and pleeeaaase order the Carpaccio!!!!
My wife and I enjoyed dinner and brunch at this wonderful restaurant terrific ambience.
Always good food, love the steak, old fashions, and they do some great variations of mimosa on Sundays
Girls Night Out for 2!We shared the: Pimento Dip, Kale Salad, Pizette & Hot Chicken. WOW! All of the dishes were amazing. This was my second time there . We shared a ton of starters & apps and we had no room left for the Pizette! Everything was so delicious. They were definitely busy on a Saturday night but we were seated at the community table and did not have anyone sitting directly next to us. The service was great! Our server was attentive and kind. More...
Best burger I have ever had!! With pimento cheese & apple wood smoked bacon, grilled bun & a nice simple sauce. Perfection! Also fries are awesome.Wife raved about coke slaw. Whole meal was excellent. Highly recommended. Good drinks also, More...
Food was amazing, the only reason I am not giving it a five star is because the amount of food you get for the price can be a little bit much.
Fantastic menu and ambiance. If it's a nice day, ask to sit outside. One of my favorites.
Outstanding food, great atmosphere, and friendly attentive staff. So glad I found this place on yelp when in town on business. The bread pudding was amazing!
The waitress was very attentive and very knowledgeable. The food was absolutely amazing!
loved the kale salad and nibbling on my husband's steak!
Michael Jacksons Bistro
This is a great dinner spot for hanging out with friends or even for a date. The interior is beautiful yet charming, which makes for great atmosphere. The service was fantastic all the way and the food was great too!The only thing is that street parking can prove to be difficult but if you want to try the valet parking service, do keep $5 on hand as you'll need it to pay for the service. More...
Everybody was very nice especially Sarah our waitress. The ambience is very cool and the food delicious. The white chocolate bread pudding is a must!!!!
Meatball appetizer is maybe my favorite in all of Tampa Bay. Beautiful atmosphere, bartenders are friendly and inviting if you choose to sit at the bar for drinks and/or food. Outdoor seating is a little tight but enjoyable in the colder months. Wonderful dining option in Hyde Park! More...
The atmosphere is so very fun. Cute outdoor seating, open and homey indoor seating. Adorable. The food was really great. We got 5-6 small plates and nibbles and they were all out of this world. The mushrooms above all tasted otherworldly. I couldn’t recommend this place enough. Go. Enjoy. More...
A bit pricey but food was excellent!
One of the best meals I’ve eaten in a long time. Amazing kale salad, scallops, and bread pudding. Highly recommend this place!
Came here with 2 families and they adapted fast, great customer service, yummy food
It was great from start to finish!A group of us went there to celebrate a friends birthday. Service was great, I forgot our server's name but she knows her stuff and was superb. Food was delicious! We enjoyed everything. I had the special, Branzino. Fish was cooked to perfection with the perfect sear. The sauce and string beans just all come together. I hope they keep that on the menu because I want to go back for it. It's that good. We got the Farmer board to share. It was plenty among 7 of us. Ambiance is great for date night or any occasion. The have full bar with great drink selections. Restaurant is big to accommodate large parties. They also have outdoor seating. Reservation is recommend.Heard they have brunch here. Can't wait to check that out! More...
I was surprised how busy it was on a Thursday night which is always a good sign. The food was amazing and delicious! Their bread pudding was beyond expectations, I would definitely come back. Trina was very friendly, attentive and professional. The only downside was very loud in there so I recommend to sit outside. More...
Loved this place. Great atmosphere and food! Our wonderful server, Nikole helped us pick some delicious options. The hot chicken is a must! Also, Christopher from New York was very kind and helpful. More...
Eat here every time I'm in Tampa. Have been here multiple times and always get consistency. Whoever does the hiring chooses well. Everyone takes pride in their work here! Amazing food, perfect drinks, and the best servers. More...
Food was excellent, drinks delicious. Service did get a little slow towards the end but it WAS homecoming night
We live almost an hour away so don't make it here often. Because of that it's really hard to get anything other than the kale salad and the fried chicken sandwich every time. They're our favorites but everything we've had here has been outstanding! More...
Sarath Mohan K S
Good American food
T J Bramlette
Absolutely fantastic food and service!
This is one of all time Tampa favorites and my go-to spot for pretty much any occasion. There's been an explosion of new restaurants in the area lately and although I love trying new places, I find that many of the new restaurants don't keep up the quality in food or service after a few months. On Swann manages to have it all and has fortunately kept up the quality and continues to get better. Incredible food ( with seasonal menus), great beverage program and attentive friendly service. The ambience is hip and modern, without being pretentious. The kale salad and the ribeye are a must. More...
Christina M. Burden
Delicious food, attentive service, and a great location. The charcuterie board (combining both the cheese board and the butcher board) was gorgeous and so tasty. The crab omelette is done in the French style, very different than an American omelette. It is the best omelette I have ever had, even in France!! The eggs were fluffy, silky, and delicate. Everything was delicious! More...
We were greeted warmly, taken to our table quickly, and served with the best of care. Our server, Amanda, was very attentive. Our food came quickly after we ordered. The presentation was exceptional. We had appetizers, starters, entrees and desert, I think we were there for and hour and 45 minutes. We were also served sourdough bread that is displayed in the dining room. Our entrees were fantastic but the bread pudding was exceptional. I read a review that said the noise level was a little high and I would have to agree, but we ate on Friday night and every table was full the whole time we were there. BTW, we had the rib fillet meal for 2 and pork chop meals which exceeded our expectations. We rated this experience a 10 and highly recommend On Swann. More...
Awesome atmosphere, beautiful design, great management, and delicious food! Chicken burger is to die for!
One of my favorite places in Tampa! If I lived closer, I'd go there more often. Staff and the food is always delicious and the atmosphere is great, especially on a weekend.
Friendly staff, great food and atmosphere!!!My girl Stephanie and I had several choices but came her for lunch. The food and atmosphere are always great but today we were fortunate enough to meet Christopher from NY. We had a very insightful and pleasant conversation. Chris you ROCK, can't wait to see you again! More...
The roasted cauliflower was really good, and was surprised not find any capers in it (as was listed in the menu), which would have made it amazing. The cobia was very good, but the chorizo was a little rubbery. The risotto was just about perfect. Beer and wine were excellent. Monica provided great insight and service.The space teeters on elegant, while still being comfortable with great natural lighting. I enjoyed being there. More...
Loved this restaurant! Excellent, fast and friendly service, clean and beautifully decorated with fantastic food!I started with the tomato soup, can't go wrong with that! Then the saffron arancini, this little chorizo balls with manchego, just amazing, the dipping sauce was out of this world, I had the kale salad which was fenomenal and a huge portion btw, then I ordered the crab omelette with spinach, it was good, not my favorite but good. I also tried a bite of their chicken sandwich and that was amazing! This place has a very good and large menu, lots of options and they all look delicious!! I will definitely come back again when visiting Tampa!Excellent experience and fair prices! More...
My favorite place in tampa these guys are terrific
This sounds funny, but I LOVED the kale salad! The hot chicken had amazing flavors with a sauce on the side that was wonderful! No worries... the chicken was not spicy. I almost didn’t eat here because the menu looked boring but WOW I’m glad I chose to stay. I may have missed out on a nice dinner, upbeat environment (without being too busy) and a comfortable place to relax after a long day. If lived closer, I would return on a regular basis! “On Swann” was “On Point”! More...
"On Swann" is one of the many upscale dinner options in Hyde Park Village.While eating their trademark burger (made with dry aged beef, pimento cheese, crispy bacon, pickled red onions and an aioli sauce), I saw an order of pork chops cross my field of view. It was love at first sight. While the burger was excellent, I was excited to come back and try out their pork chop entree.Fast forward a few weeks and I returned to eat their signature pork chop: a double chop with apple mostarda, hazelnut, acorn squash, green beans, and a side of white mill grits. It's perfection.During my pork chop adventure, I saw yet another dish come across my view for which I have to return for a third time to try. For those looking for a fancy place to splurge for a celebration or anniversary or just to treat yourself, On Swann is a good $$$$ category candidate. More...
I've had dinner at On Swann multiple times and it's always been great. The kale salad, lamb meatballs and giant ribeye are my usual choices. I had brunch there for the first time this week to celebrate a friends birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It's def NOT a good choice if you have a hankering for a typical eggs and bacon and hash browns type meal. The egg dishes are limited. And there's no avocado toast! But if you are good with creative breakfast fare and lunch, you'll love it! The mushroom toast topped with an egg satisfied our breakfast craving, and the French fries are fatty enough to cure a hangover. The chicken salad was light and fresh. We ended with bread pudding. The space is bright and airy and it wasn't too crowded. Service was friendly. More...
We had a wonderful birthday celebration on Saturday night at On Swann. We had a quick drink at the bar while waiting for our boys to arrive. The bartenders were so friendly and welcoming and there are a lot of cool drinks on the menu. Our server was friendly and attentive, the food was absolutely amazing, and the overall feel of the restaurant was really awesome. Make a Reservation if you don’t want to wait. They have some outdoor seating and they have quite a few seats at the bar as well. More...
Alex is the best bartender in Tampa .. correction, in Florida ! Keep him aroundSuper knowledgeable and always smiling. Such a pleasure to be around
Love this place, one of our "go to" options for family dinners (kids aged 1 and 3) and for date nights. Bustling place, but they put an emphasis on service and we have always had great servers. Food is awesome, love love love "The Farm" cheese and charcuterie board for sharing. Delicious cocktails and a unique wine menu. More...
I was told by my best friend who happens to be a Chef that this was a great place to take my boyfriend for his birthday dinner. The bestie had never been but heard great things. Immediately following dinner I text the bestie informing him that we indeed came to On Swann and that it was amazing and worth every dollar spent! The space is a bit loud which I can deal with once I got my cocktail and those dang Oysters. OMG those Oysters! I absolutely hate oysters but when I saw the picture on Yelp of the oysters and the reviews on them, I was able to convince myself that I can make it work. It WORKED. Delicious and savory! I had to convince myself not to order another one because we were having a whole dinner. The overall meal was amazing. I got the Pork Chop and he got the Short Rib which comes with pasta. See Pics. We will definitely come back to On Swann when back in the area as we are visiting. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.Also, the Server Nikole was lovely. She was very personable and great to talk to. More...
I am traveling from out of town and I just wanted to give a shout out to Chris and Gage, the two bartenders I interacted with tonight. They were so hospitable and charming. I received wonderful, honest recommendations and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit. I definitely plan to visit again. More...
Such great food, as always! We had a large party celebrating a special occasion, yet the service was still excellent. The only negative was the noise level in the restaurant, but that won't stop us from coming back again soon! Love this place, which is always predictably great! More...
I'm a student at UT and whenever my parents are in town or there's a special occasion we take to On Swann. This restaurant is the pinnacle of modern class. Beautiful interior design and food presentation. Everything I've ever ordered was to die for and it even impressed my dad who is a pretty picky New York native. I definitely recommend it. Service is prompt, experienced and friendly. Any possible question you have will get a helpful answer and you can't go wrong with any of the food. More...
I recently threw a surprise party for my wife with all of our close friends invited. They were very kind in accommodating all of my special needs, which were many. The experience was an eleven on a scale of ten. Foi gras butter set the tone for a 5 course meal. Very memorable. Drinks had layers and were well constructed. Service was exceptional with smiles radiating from everyone. Hyde Park's best destination! More...
One of my favorite restaurants in Tampa. Absolutely get the Kale salad and just about anything else on the menu. If you hate it, which you won't, let me know and I'll delete this review. I won't hold my breathe :)
Amazing restaurant, everything was clean and they were really nice to me.Service was excellent. I great rum, wine, small plates and main dishes. I really expected this place to be excellent and it lived up to it. I would highly recommend this restaurant. More...
Went here on the recommendation of a friend. And OMG!! So glad we did! The restaurant itself is warm and inviting. Lots of wood and low lighting with made the atmosphere relaxed and comfortable. They really cram the tables in close to one another, so I wouldn't really recommend On Swann as an intimate date night spot, especially if your really trying to talk to your company.. the crowdedness leads to a very loud restaurant as well. It really didn't bother me or my company because we are all in our 30's and were drinking, so no biggie! On Swann is a Hipster's paradise; beards and mustaches as far as the eye can see. The drinks are also super trendy with lots of emphasis on bourbons. They had a great wine list too! But, the star of the entire experience was by far the food!! We were 3 people and we split the Bone-in Ribeye which was cooked perfectly and came piled with onion rings, and the Pork Chops. The Pork Chops were so thick and juicy. I thought they may be touch bc of their thickness, but they could almost be cut with a fork they were so tender! The apples they serve with them were the perfect compliment to the chops.. Both meals were HUGE!! We had left overs. Definitely recommend On Swann! More...
Fantastic experience at On Swann, incredible service and great tasting food! They helped my husband throw me an wonderful birthday party that I will remember forever!
I love going here because the service is phenomenal and the food is absolutely amazing! I always get the fruity salads and they always are even better than expected. Also, if something isn't on the menu that they put in it they'll ask you about it. The dessert is also to die for. I don't usually get dessert but at On Swann I make an exception. I love their bread pudding with vanilla ice cream and a caramel sauce. They take it to the next level. Also their cheesecake is fantastic too. All in all it's a great place to go to. More...
The service and food is always on point. Delicious drinks and food. They are always consistent and never disappoint.
Just moved to St Pete from NYC and found this little gem online. We decided to celebrate our bdays with dinner here. First I just want to say please don't ever change a single thing about the Beef Carpaccio! ! And if you are thinking of ordering it when you see it on the menu, do! It was the highlight of our meal by far! The citrus and croutons in the arugula under the mountain of goodness only enhanced the dish. Seriously incredible. We also loved the kale salad and burrata dishes. So colorful and full of fall flavors. We tried a few other items but these 3 made the meal for us. Don't miss it! Can't wait to come back. More...
Loved the atmosphere! The service was great and the waitress was able to answer all my questions, even the ridiculous question. Even though it's self serve for water, someone was always filling it up for me which I loved. The food was so good! I normally don't like lamb but the lamb meatball was delirious! The streak and the duck was so tender and moist it melted in my mouth! We also got the scallops which were unique and tasteful because of the sauces that came with it. Would highly recommend! More...
The only reason I have deducted a star is because every time I have shown up at On Swann with an umbrella, someone has taken my umbrella. Seriously? Hyde Park provides umbrellas that say "Hyde Park Village" why would you take my umbrella If you don't want your umbrella stolen, don't bring one here. Alternatively, bring it to your table or check it with the staff. When it's time to leave, it's raining, and your $20-$30 umbrella has been stolen, well, a one star reduction in rating a yelp review is apparently your only course of action.Yes, we told the staff who said maybe someone thought it was a Hyde Park umbrella...sorry. More...
Never disappointed with the brunch dishes. Delicious entrees, amazing Bloody Mary's, and little a Italian doughnut appetizer that is to die for. The atmosphere is great too, chic art-deco vibe. More...
The steak was amazing! Love at first bite
Outstanding! Every detail
Love this restaurant for so many reasons. Excellent food and service with a great relaxed atmosphere. But then they go above and beyond! We live an hour away so this is our go to place when we pick up someone from the airport. Was there in May with my sister and although everything was great we had a small hiccup. Her salmon was abit uncooked in the middle and so just asked the server to take it to the kitchen to cook through a bit more. Instead, they make her an entire new dish. However, it took almost 15 minutes and by the time it came she was not hungry anymore and I had finished my food. We simply asked them to wrap it up for us and instead the manager came over and apologized profusely and then proceeded to take the meal off our bill and give us 2 comps for meals whenever we liked. Unbelievable and totally unnecessary. Today my husband and I came in for the 2 meal comps and what happens, the manager comes over and is so attentive and sweet and then comps us everything except one dessert. This is first class customer care and although totally unexpected or necessary highly impressive and appreciated. I am so sorry I do not remember the managers name but she was the same person from May and could not have been more professional or attentive. Thank you On Swann, you run a great business and it is clear the owners know what they are doing. We will be back again and always recommend you to people looking for a wonderful restaurant experience. More...
Food and service were both outstanding! Super cozy environment, very aesthetically pleasing, and great for dates, friends or family. Everything came out cooked to perfection and was delicious. Our server, AnnMarie, put the experience over the top. She made us feel very welcome as first time guests. She was very knowledgeable of the menu, and very helpful when we asked her for wine suggestions. We’ll definitely be coming back again for this amazing experience! More...
Good food and service in an industrial modern atmosphere with indoor and outdoor seating. There is a bar area for seating and a restaurant area with both high and low top tables. The inside has high ceilings and no real walls to absorb sound so it can get loud inside when it's busy. The lunch and dinner menu's vary but there is a good variety of dishes. We ordered the burger and the BLTA with pomme frites. The food came out quickly even though it was pretty busy and it was hot and fresh. The bacon on the BLTA was done just perfect, not to crisp and not to soft. The burger was done just as requested and the pomme frites were crispy and hot. More...
Food and ambience was amazing!! Perhaps the servers could slow down a tad!!!!
We had and early reservation so noise level was not an issue for us. Service was excellent. We enjoyed great rum, wine, small plates and main dishes. We expected this place to be excellent and it lived up to it. Very clean.I would highly recommend this restaurant. More...
Love this place. Could be the best food in South Tampa. I don't know how they get so much flavor into a kale salad, but they do.
Excellent service. No wait for lunch on a Wednesday. We absolutely loved the Steak Frites, cooked and seasoned perfectly the Cabernet butter was amazing and the pomme fries are spectacular. We also enjoyed the spicy buttermilk chicken sandwich. Great experience. Highly recommend. More...
One of my absolute favorites in Tampa -- amazing vibe and decor, excellent food and drinks. They nailed the library / bar mixed medium city-chic aesthetic. I just love being in the space. The kale cherry salad is perfectly balanced, and the entrees are all interesting and well prepared. Lunch is also a nice bright experience. More...
Everything about this place was amazing! Service was phenomenal, drinks delish! I highly suggest the Pork Chop.
This place is really good if you are feeling a fun, trendy atmosphere- similar to Oxford exchange, just not as big. I would classify it as a "foody restaurant" with lots of interesting options that normal places don't have. The fries are so good and they have the best salads. More...
Great dinner friendly staff
The absolute best. Love the staff, love the food, and the drinks are on point. Excellent Vibe and will definitely be coming back on my next trip.
Took my wife here for her birthday and had a great time. No wait on a Saturday night is always a good start. Staff were all very nice and friendly. Our waiter gave us great suggestions from the menu. Food was delicious... I had the Cobia (recommend by our waiter) which was a nicely put together seafood dish. For dessert the bread pudding is the way to go. More...
To start off the staff was amazing, from the moment we walked in until we left. The food was great, perfectly sized menu to not overwhelm. But this place is so loud I couldn't even here myself think let alone have a conversation with the group I was with. I wish I could knock down just a half star but I can't. So to wrap this review up maybe see if they offer take out..... More...
Love it. Fairly pricey but great overall. Food and service excellent. Always good quality food with good portions. Great service.
How delicious!!!!!!!! The portions seemed pretty big to me but it was absolutely delicious. I had the pork chop as my entree and it was so juicy and perfectly cooked. For starters, don't miss out on the oysters. My oh my! I can just have 2 orders of it as a full meal. The service is not the fastest but the staff is super friendly and gives you all the details that you need. The ambiance is very cool and classy. I had a great time! Definitely recommend. More...
My favorite restaurant ever. I have never had anything that I didn't like. The drinks, the kale salad, the lamb meatballs, tuna, veggies, dessert-ALL amazing! Great atmosphere, fun date night and can also bring the family. More...
Amazing food and great service. The butcher plate to start is an excellent choice.
Date night was great ambiance was perfect
Their Pork Chop might have been the best meal I've had ever.Everything about my experience was sublime, but I'll start with the food. I ordered the pork chop as recommended by our server. The dish was on a level I hadn't previously experienced. The sweet and savory flavor was creative and fresh. All of the flavors worked perfectly together, and the way they put the pieces of apple on top was something I didn't expect, but it added so much flavor to the dish. The pork was cooked perfectly, it's extremely satisfying when your knife glides through the pork as you're cutting it. It's something I haven't noticed at other restaurants. It made it enjoyable in more ways than just flavor. The grits were also really good. I am no judge for grits, but the consistency was great as well as the flavor. This goes without saying, but presentation was amazing. Food tastes as a good as it looks. Our server was great. She knew a lot about the menu and was incredibly attentive despite the restaurant being packed. Our experience with all of the staff was just as great. It was truly above and beyond. Ambience was great too, the inside was a bit loud so we sat outside. Everything was really clean. I'd recommend here if you're going with a friend or with a group. If you have young kids, I'd recommend you go as one of their less crowded hours, but you'll probably be fine. The people working there really know what they're doing, it was impressive. I went here because it was voted best in Hyde Park, and now I see why. I'll be recommending this to everyone I know. I hope they keep doing what they're doing, because I'll definitely be back for more. More...
Excellent food, drinks and service.
I really enjoyed eating here. I went with a group of 8 at 5:30pm and there was plenty of room for us. Our service was great. My water glass was never empty and any time a dish came out out waiter took the time to explain the highlights of that dish. The food was delicious and u really have no complaints about it. More...
We come here every time we're in town. Fine dining is an understatement when it comes to this place.
AMAZING. One of my favorite Tampa restaurants. The saffron arancini appetizer was amazing and the kale salad was surprisingly wonderful. The salmon was cooked perfectly. The apple and pear cobbler was my favorite! More...
Boisterous place to have a delicious meal... too loud for an anniversary or romantic dinner. The Food Is Amazing!
Great food, service and ambiance
The location is in the name and I like that in a restaurant. I also like the Kale Salad (minus the bacon) - my go-to whenever I visit On Swann. It's literally a mountain of kale with some delicious surprises like corn and tart cherries intermixed, topped with SO. MUCH. CHEESE. (I write that in happiest possible way - because cheese.)In addition to scaling my favorite mountain o' kale, I've eaten my way through most of the vegetarian small plates since the restaurant opened. The stand-out plate is definitely the Whipped-Ricotta Corn Dip (let's face it, anything can be made into its best self if you add ricotta). This dip is served with parmesan zeppole and is out-of-this-world delicious. The Cauliflower also gets a tasty and honorable mention. The place itself is well-appointed, and the styling touches are nice and make the evening feel a tad more upscale. I'd recommend this spot more for date nights or dinner with friends during the holidays, but I've also found myself here during business lunches and relish the chance to drop by the adorable Hyde Park Village midday. More...
Rating speaks for itself, I was already thinking of Dining here but I decided to ask our valet "what do you recommend " he told me every other place in Hyde Park and then finished "but of course On Swann is the best here". With that being said I will be returning again. It was a Saturday night so I called ahead asked if it was reservation only and they said no but I might expect a wait, got in and of course it was packed but they had a high table for that so we were seated at the high table (which wasn't too uncomfortable) right away. Our service was great, scenery was great very very busy, but not crazy. Open kitchen is a great view. My server was able to recommend me some Vegan options that weren't on the menu which were great. Next time I'll have a reservation and maybe get a little closer to the kitchen, but I loved it. If you're in Tampa I recommend stoping in, and take a stroll in Hyde Park. More...
They have some great vegan options
Service is always great! They are pretty kid friendly and accommodating for large parties. Always one of my favorites lunch spots, the kale salad is the best here! Drink are also great! Very cute place More...
Wow, the atmosphere was hip and chill. Bar had a nice selection to choose from. Waiter was on point with his recommendations. You can tell it wasn't his first picnic. Had the rib eye to share for two. Deff not a redunkulous portion but fair. Hot chicken is a must. Ordered it again for dessert bc it was soo good and I didn't want to share. Deff recommend for semi casual dining and fun atmosphere. More...
Yes Yes definitely worth it. Im a regular for sure
The pork chop was extremely tasty, foie gras was just ok, carpaccio was interesting and the mustard added was odd, the roasted chicken was also good. If you like super rich chocolate cake, this place has an extremely rich moist option. More...
Top 3 restaurants in Tampa...
Good quality and ambience. A bit high priced though.
The first thing I want to point out is that the service is amazing. Our server, Lauren, was extremely attentive, funny, had some great recommendations and overall just made the night for us. On Swann would have been a very solid 4 stars in my review, but Lauren pushed it over the top for us. Of course, the food was also amazing More...
Second time coming here and it's always a treat. Great food, great service and dog friendly patio! I would highly recommend to bring any out of towners if you want to wine and dine them !
Service and food are always on point. Even when they at their busiest time the food comes quickly and is always wonderful.
I love the kale salad and wouldn't come without getting it! I had the cauliflower appetizer and very much enjoyed it. The hot chicken is delicious but my only complaint is that it needs to have some spice added to it. Currently I would just consider sweet chicken and I'd highly suggest adding at least a side of buffalo sauce for a kick. Just my opinion, at least make it an option to spice it up, ja feel? More...
The food didn't meet my expectations for the price point, but I'd come back for dessert and tea just based on the atmosphere and service.
One of my absolute favorites in the Tampa Bay Area. Is a bit on the pricier side, but the food is absolutely delicious. It's a nice atmosphere and dressy but not like super dressy. The servers are always really nice there as well. I would recommend making a reservation as they are usually pretty busy. You have to get the hot chicken and the kale salad as starters at least! They do not disappoint here, ever. More...
We had a wonderful dinner here! The food is excellent and the service was outstanding. We had carpaccio and lamb meatballs for appetizers. They were delicious. The fish was light and flaky with a scrumptious sauce. Loved it!! Then for dessert we shared the bread pudding which had a caramel sauce and vanilla gelato. OMG! Fantastic!! More...
Ingrid Castro Huber
A little pricey and TOO noisy. Very good food and nice decor.
Love the structure of this restaurant. Enjoyed the ceiling to floor windows, there was light coming from all angles, good to sit and chill with friends. The food is amazing, I had the chicken sandwich, very tasty and crispy. More...
One of the coolest and fun places in South Tampa. I don't get here as often as I like but the food is awesome, they are totally accommodating for people like me who want thing simply done, great bar, drinks and exceptional service. Decor has an open and loud cafe feel. More...
Finally made our way to On Swann, and what a lovely dinner we had. The interior is gorgeous as well as all dishes, silverware, servingware etc. Most outstanding dish in my opinion was the Garganelli pasta. Cooked perfectly with an interesting slew of choices/flavors. A brilliant deviation from what you normally expect a pasta dish to be. More...
Excellent all the way around!!! Bread pudding is a must!!!!
For me, not as good as its reputation. My grilled cheese sandwich with fig jam was nothing special. The bread dominated a little too much with a bit too hard crusty graininess to it. I found the ambiance so so. Service was fine. The crowd was toward upper scale trendy. Price was I guess ok. Menu was fairly limited. I liked that they overfilled my glass with appetizing looking ice cubes. More...
Food and service was awesome, this may be the best food in Tampa im my opinion. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is the volume. It's so loud and crowded inside we had to opt to eat outside on a cold night because of the anxiety we experienced. More...
Good food, able to share plates
Came here today for lunch by happenstance. Wow. Fantastic. Great decor, ambiance, food, beverages, prices, and service.I had the fried chicken sandwich and it did not disappoint. It was splendid. I had never had celery root before and it was such a clever, tasty spin. Also, if ordering the fries, the portion is large enough to share so just order one.I had this delicious pink drink that is normally made with gin but I asked for the substitution to be vodka and I couldn't have been happier.I will certainly come back for dinner and see what else this place has to offer. More...
This place is so fun for a happy hour or a bite with friends! The restaurant is very open and spacious, but it can get a tad loud at times. Cute location in Hyde Park also. The food is amazing, definitely try a charcuterie. My favorite is the short rib ragú pasta- amazing!! More...
On Swann is one of the best restaurants in Tampa. They have a small menu but each item I've tried is delicious. I recommend the hot chicken as an appetizer. The burger sounds simple but it is extraordinary. My friends recommend the short rib pasta. For dessert, the bread pudding... an absolute 10/10. Home run. More...
Amazing staff... cute restaurant!!!! Thanks for being so nice!!!
First time in Tampa and a colleague of mine suggested this place. We had a great time. Our server, Orlando walked the extra mile to be sure that we had a good experience. The arancinis set a good start up, followed by the scallops with Brussels sprouts were all very delicious. The portion was perfect to leave some space for the super rich chocolate cake with a bit of an orange kick and the bread pudding. I really liked that none of the desserts were too sweet. Julius meinl tea and coffee are served and I have not seen that brand for a while so it was refreshing to see that. I appreciated that they did NOT bring straws without even telling them. You do not need it. The place has a good vibe, the music was nice (maybe a bit too loud). Overall highly recommended! Ps there cocktails are also worth to try ;) More...
Finally made our way to On Swann, and what a lovely dinner we had. The interior is gorgeous as well as all dishes, silverware, servingware etc. We ordered the Corn Ricotta dish, excellent. Mushroom and Cauliflower dishes packed with flavor. Most outstanding dish in my opinion was the Garganelli pasta. Cooked perfectly with an interesting slew of choices/flavors. A brilliant deviation from what you normally expect a pasta dish to be. So impressed with On Swann, we will be back for more! More...
Great place with a better menu. The service was top shelf. The kale salad had smoked almonds, cherries, Brussels and cheese--you don't realize that kale is good for you. The lamb meatballs appetizer was served with cheese grits and a red sauce. Zapolles were a treat. But the crowd pleaser was the 28 ounce bone in rib eye. Fed three with ease as it comes with potatoes, onion rings and grilled sweet onions. Great wine list and bar menu to wash it all down. More...
Great vibe in this restaurant! Delicious food! Excellent service! Great bar!!
Wow, this made the trip. I happen to be in Tampa for a few days for work and after a day of great but busy client meetings, my colleague and I stopped by here for dinner and were not disappointed in the least. TL;DR - go now. Or read on for me.The first thing I want to point out is that the service is amazing. Our server, Lauren, was extremely attentive, funny, had some great recommendations and overall just made the night for us. On Swann would have been a very solid 4 stars in my review, but Lauren pushed it over the top for us. Of course, the food was also amazing. To the well dressed and flavorful Kale Salad to Oysters to the Garganelli, everything was bursting with flavor and care and it seems clear that On Swann uses fresh ingredients in well thought out styles. A great cocktail & spirits menu, which to my delight included a favorite of mine: Amaro Montenegro, really matched well and gave us some good alcohol. Finished off with the Bread Pudding, which you simply must try, and your only question will be why didn't you try On Swann sooner.Closing thoughts, really none actually. As a matter of fact, I have a second work dinner tonight at the same place. And I'm really excited about it. Maybe see you there! More...
Impressed with the food. It just took a little while to come out.
Great food and wait staff. I liked the food more than my husband who thought it was good but not great. Dropped $250 for two of us but that included drinks and dessert. Would go again for nice night out but too expensive for a regular go to spot. More...
The service was very good. The food was excellent and the drinks were some of the best I've had. I was there for a bachelorette party and the price fixed menu options were perfect. The atmosphere was nice too. I would definitely recommend this place for any occasion. More...
A modern take on american comfort food. They definitely lived up to my expectations. These guys know what they're doing!
I think my friend and I got lucky with going in on a Saturday and being able to be sat immediately at noon... or maybe not. It always seems busy. The inside is cute, trendy and an open concept. It was the brunch menu. I ordered the steak frites, which is some steak, Rosemary Parmesan fries, served with ketchup for the fries and a blueberry (or another purple fruit) butter to serve on the steak. I preferred less butter so I only used a bit to switch the taste up. The waiter was friendly and helped me pick through the menu. I also ordered a "Moscow mule" type drink - delicious! You can get gin or vodka. My friend ordered the pizza and it was the perfect personal size - she loved it! Ate the whole thing. I can't wait to go back to try more items... I might opt for the dinner menu next round. More...
We had such a pleasant experience at On Swann! The service, food and atmosphere is all top notch. We ordered a round of walnut old fashioneds that were concocted perfectly. The kale salad was amazing! Totally worth getting and splitting with someone. We split the kale salad and roasted cauliflower between 4 people as appetizers and it was the perfect amount. The cauliflower was also delish!Now for the highlight of our meal... the blackened bone in ribeye. This might just be my absolute favorite steak I've ever had. I haven't stopped thinking about it since we went 2 weeks ago. We will definitely be back for more! More...
Everything we had here was delicious. Ambience is open floor, open kitchen, and antique silverware. The hot chicken, asparagus soup, Moroccan eggs were wonderful. And the Best Kale Salad! There sour dough bread is excellent and the service was exceptional. Lauren made our visit memorable and helped us to celebrate by bringing me a cookie to end our meal. I wish I could bring this Resturant back to Philadelphia with us. I highly recommend if you're in the area to put this on your places to go More...
Fantastic food and environment. A bit pricy, buy worth every penny. I'll come back again and again.
#1) I love the atmosphere and aesthetic of this place! Very modern-industrial. #2) it's a foodie joint. Meals are prepared in house and the menu changes from time to time so you won't find an average-Joe food selection. Come with an open mind and empty stomach. You will leave full and happy. Scouts honor. ***During our visit we ordered a meat and cheese board along with the sirloin burger and the fried chicken sandwich. No complaints here at all. The presentation of each meal was lovely and didn't disappoint in flavor. I can't wait to go back!*** Also, May I point out they accept reservations, which is really great and convenient for those weekend date nights and for when you are totally craving some Sunday Brunch. Mimosas anyone?! I suggest you take advantage :) More...
One of our favorite spots in Tampa! Every time we go we try different items on the menu and are never disappointed. The service is also always on point and our waiters have suggested great things such as their delicious pork chops!
Service is always excellent. Your water glass is never empty and the food comes outs quickly. The steak was perfect and delicious.
Kale salad and hot chicken. Period. The tuna is also exceptional. The drinks are excellent and reasonably priced. The ambiance reminds me of NYC. It's the best restaurant in Tampa, imo. More...
This is my favorite restaurant in Hyde Park. Service is always great. On this visit William/Will was or waiter and he was exceptional! He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, accommodating, and very personable. Entrees and desert were delicious with the bread pudding being the superstar. We will definitely be going back and will be asking to sit in William/Will's section. More...
Great food and service. Very creative menu which was exceptionally executed. Brunch was awesome!
The food did take a little longer than normal on this last visit but have gone 4-5 times now and service and food has been so outstanding that I'll gladly wait for it. We were regulars at Boca for many years but seems like it's gone down hill last few months so we decided to give On Swann a try and are glad we did! We keep trying diff things each visit for entrees but can't get enough of the Carpaccio and Kale Salad to start with. Haven't even tried a diff starter yet! Short Rib is my fav entree where rib just melts off the plate. Going to check out lunch soon! More...
Probably the best food in Tampa. Unfortunately very noisy. Great waitstaff, just a very nice experience.
Hands down one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa and I have owned and operated Circles Waterfront Restaurant in Apollo Beach for the last 20 years. The food is incredible and the service is unlike any other. I went in last night with my mom and a friend for her birthday and Josh (server) was outstanding! The food never disappoints but Josh was so friendly and attentive and kept us smiling from the moment we sat down. If you've never tried this place you are missing out! Props to the owners I recommend your restaurant to everyone i know More...
Best meal we've had in Tampa! We have been here for a year and tried several restaurants in the Tampa area. On Swann has greats atmosphere, amazing food, great service, and the Hyde Park neighborhood is awesome. Loves all of it.
Good upscale place with super waitress (Lize). Good food prices not bad, just a little loud.
This is the best restaurant I have been to in a very long time. Everything from the decor, the music, the service, and my god the food was impeccable. I had the Beef Carpaccio which is one of my favorite dishes. It was stellar. The hot chicken was to die for. The bread pudding dessert was out of this world. I can't wait to come back and try other dishes. More...
I really love On Swann. What's not to love? The atmosphere is awesome. The service is great. The food is delicious! My favorite things so far is their burger, chicken sandwich, kale salad, soups and their bread. Honestly I'd come here just for their bread. I don't know if they make it house or get it from somewhere and I really don't care. It's amazing. Honestly it might be the best thing in the place! Sadly I've never eaten a dessert from here but everything else is amazing so I would imagine they are good too. Only downside is 1. It's a little noisy. I guess I've just gotten to the point in my life I don't like super loud places but the food is so good I over look it. 2. They only take limited reservations so be prepared to wait. Make a reservation if you can. 3. No diaper changing stations. As a mom now I look for them everywhere I go and when they don't have them it's really disappointing but you do what ya gotta do! I realize most people coming here aren't bringing babies but I like my kids so much I bring them with me everywhere so that would be nice to have a changing table. Also, their kids portions are HUGE! So yeah I love this place! It's a Tampa Gem and I hope you try it and love it as much as I do! More...
Amazing menu for both food and drinks. The Kale salad was amazing along with the Rye So Sour cocktail. Definitely will come back for dinner. Our server, April, was awesome...well versed in the menu and incredibly helpful. She made a great lunch even better. More...
Great food! The service was great. My only problem with then is the fact that you can't order takeout. Other than that perfect ambiance.
Delicious food and great service. Really nice place for an evening dinner. I had pork chop and lavash with cheese- definitely 10/10
One of the best restaurants in Tampa, hands down. Every meal we've had here has been delicious, and the wait staff is incredible. Josh is our favorite waiters -- he makes the best recommendations! More...
Its always a good idea to reserve a table, due to the massive amounts of eaters that love to chow down on these DELICIOUS foods. This place here definitely has the best bread pudding my taste buds have ever touched. The pomme frites and the hot chicken were some of my favorite foods. The cocktails were AMAZING as well.I really do recommend the On Swann, give your taste buds a treat and get the real deal here. Love this place cant get better bread pudding ANYWHERE else. More...
My husband and I had a wonderful dinner celebrating his 29th birthday! It was a great experience with delicious food and impeccable service! The tuna crudo is divine, the steak frites is a must, and the vanilla bean bread pudding will send you to heaven - it was arguably one of the best desserts I've ever had. We will definitely be returning to explore more of the menu! More...
Go here. Now. No regrets Server Alex is the Boss. Drinks fabulous -Plymouth gin dirty martini best I've ever had. Kale salad-over the top. Vibe-excellent. Nuf said.
Love this place! We've lived in tampa for 6 months now and it's our constant go-to. The steak frites and the burger are amazing! Drinks and service are excellent too! More...
I love this place! Great location & the food and service are always amazing. I have been here before and it is always an enjoyable experience but wanted to write a review following my most recent visit because the server went above and beyond to show all of us a great time! Our server Josh was fantastic -- I was there with 3 of my friends for my birthday lunch and we had a wonderful time. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, friendly and funny! He really helped make our day a great time. I love their Swanngria cocktail and had the kale salad with flank steak which was cooked to perfection. The salad is a very refreshing meal on a warm summer day.I highly recommend this place if you have not tried it. I live in Apollo Beach and it is well worth the short drive. I will definitely be back soon - probably this weekend! More...
Fresh, Fabulous meals and Friendly service with wonderful atmosphere.
This awesome restaurant has exceeded my expectations each time we've been, which is at least 10 times now!!! Great menu, Awesome service and beautiful atmosphere. My friends and I are having a monthly brunch and enjoying every visit! Today was extraordinarily special because our waiter was world class! Josh Provided fantastic service, great humor, and patience with our extra long stay! We will ask for him every month when we return because he was so exceptional! to the owners of on Swann - please clone Josh!!! More...
Service is impeccable and food is fantastic. The specialty drinks are wonderful and food fantastic. Very reasonably priced for the quality and quantity of food. Will definitely return and recommend. More...
Awesome food and atmosphere! The meat and cheese board is a must! This restaurant has an ultra cool vibe!
Visited Tampa for the first time and was recommended this restaurant, I must say I was very pleased. Sat at the bar for food and cocktails. Our bartender was Alexander (Alex) and he was very accommodating, had great recommendations, super friendly and happy. We were overall very happy with our experience. More...
Ugh, wow. On Swann for brunch is easily 5 stars.Located in hyde park, it's the perfect spot to stop into before (or after) shopping. The décor reminds me of San Francisco, really upscale but comfortable. We even commented on the service - how it wasn't too invasive and perfectly just.. there. If that makes sense.I had the greens salad and a small tomato soup, super light and amazing. Surprisingly, I've found it difficult to find salads that are good enough while eating out. I ate way too quickly to grab photos, but the cocktails were amazing (pictured). Definitely recommend it all. More...
My experience here was mostly wonderful. The only constructive comment I'd like to make is about the ginger beer. I love ginger beer, but couldn't stop coughing after drinking On Swann's brand. I looked at the ingredients and found some kind of pepper or cayenne had been added More...
We had a wonderful dinner at On Swann. Christina, our server, was friendly and very helpful. She made sure we had everything we needed and made some spot-on suggestions like the Hot Chicken. ..which you simply must try. The manager, Dylan, was also very welcoming and even offered to go to a nearby market to get watermelon in order to make my wife a salad she had been craving. So nice, but of course we could not request that, so my wife tried the Burrata salad, which was phenomenal. And, don't end your meal without trying the bread pudding. It was simply delicious. Thank you to Christina and Dylan and the rest of the gang. We can't wait to come back! More...
The food is a little different at this restaurant and the portions are small. I feel it was overpriced for what we got, and it didn't fill us up. I guess it's good if you aren't very hungry. More...
Phenomenal! Our server went above and beyond. The food was out of this world. Love the atmosphere. Chic yet relaxing. We will be back again soon!
I came here on a monday night, thankfully i used yelp and reserved a table. I arrived about 10 min late to my table, and luckily my table was still there and the place was completely packed. (Shout out to yelp for that table reservation option!!) The restaurant had a very nice atmosphere, the waiters were well knowledged about each dish and very attentative to our table. We had oysters as appetizer, that were baked with a decadent butter that made me wish i ordered more. I tried to scallops as an entree, it was so damnn good. The curry carrot purree was my favorite part of the dish. Everyone else at my table loved their entrees as well, at first it didnt seem filing but as we finished eating and ordered desert it was the right amount of food. If youre ever visiting tampa, i highly recommend this place. More...
Best restaurant ever in Tampa. The quality and presentation of the food was unique and delicious. It's a high-end place but it was worth it. We ordered a number of items including the steak, chops and appetizers and there wasn't a bad choice among them. We will be back! More...
Fantastic food. I had the spicy chicken sandwich and my wife had the steak. The former was one of the best chicken sandwiches I had, no joke. Make sure to try their cream soda. It's excellent as well. More...

There are only two words that matter at this restaurant and they are...BREAD PUDDING! On Swann has the best bread pudding my mouth has ever had the honor of tasting. Pure heaven on earth. I'm glad I don't live in Tampa, because I'm sure it would become a weekly staple. In addition to impeccable desserts, On Swann has great food and cocktails. The carrot-ginger soup, the hot chicken, and the pomme frites were some of my favorites. Everything our table got was juicy, well seasoned and full of fresh ingredients. On top of having amazing food, the service was amazing. First of all, we had a reservation for 9:00 pm and arrived 15 min prior to as we were told. Despite this, we were not seated for about 30 min past our reservation time. To make up for this delay, the hostess offered us complimentary sparkling wine which I thought was a nice touch. Next, our server Kyle was fantastic. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, and polite. To top it off, he went above and beyond to help us plan a secret birthday surprise for one of our guests! If you live in Tampa or are visiting Tampa and you don't go to On Swann (and order the bread pudding) you are a fool. More...
We were in town for the weekend and our first dinner was a home run. Terrific menus, great space. Parking was very easy w valet for $5. Totally worth it. We started with delicious cocktails: Bees in the Trap & Walnut Maple Old Fashioned. Delicious! Then we ordered the burrata salad & olives to share. Plenty for 3 of us. For dinner I had the double pork chop and I'll dream of it for weeks. My wife had the short rib over Gemelli and our dinner guest had the hot honey chicken and a cauliflower side. We finished sharing the cobbler of the day...Apple & blueberry. The restaurant is current, great service from Kyle our server. He really knew his stuff. My only downside...it's loud. Not a quiet spot. Would highly recommend. More...
Dylan, I didn't leave the last review, someone hacked my information. When my husband and I were there in April we had a great experience. If we ever head back to Macdill AFB we'll definitely be coming back! More...
Totally fabulous dinner!First, the service was impeccable. From the warm welcome to the menu recommendations to the overall service. The menu is original, inspired and varied. You can easily do dinner on tapas/shared dishes or get an amazing entree. We shared the mushroom toast, pork chop and Cobia, and finished with the ganache cake. Everything was delicious!!Highly recommend More...
We've eaten here twice and had an amazing experience each time. The staff are well trained and the bar tenders knowledgeable. We ask for a cocktail by what liquor we want in it and a flavour and they make us a drink. Experts! The food is delicious and the blueberry cobbler is a must have! More...
Second time back and it was much better . The table location was near the front window and quieter . The service was excellent and so was the food .
Fantastic charcuterie boards. One of my favorites in Tampa. Great service and very good cocktails.
Had a great experience here! The food is elegant and delicious. The presentation of the food is beautiful and perfectly cooked. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful with making menu and drink selections. The liquor menu is vast and impressive. While the food and the prices would definitely fall in the category of "fine dining", the atmosphere is decidedly casual. The dining area was a bit crowded, so your table will definitely be close to another. That being said, it's truly not unpleasant. I'm regularly in Tampa and will definitely return. More...
Definitely a must go to if you're in town. You can tell that the food is very meticulously made as each ingredient added contributes to the flavor and texture and are cooked (if applicable) to perfection. For reference the kale salad (GET THIS!) Has 10 ingredients which either compose the solid flavor or break it up a little for pacing. Also the short rib pasta's noodles had just the right amount of bite. More...
This place NEVER disappoints. The salad is just delicious and everything we've ever ordered has been just amazing. All the flavors hit just right and the service is always top notch from the time you walk in the door till the time you walk out of the door. This place is definitely not lacking in the customer service department that's for sure. Always a smile on everyone's face and always a welcoming spirit. We've been here quite a few times and it never matters what we order .... the food is always on point! More...
Absolutely love this restaurant!!!!! Get the Kale salad!!!!!! I never crave a salad but this one is amazing!!!! This place is always packed and for good reason, everything is perfect. For a large group highly recommend a sharing board of the cheese and meats. If it's just for two get the hot chicken!!!! Soooo yummy!!! More...
Wonderful brunch menu! We've always enjoyed On Swann for dinner, but their brunch is amazing. The French toast with nutella, bananas, candied pecans, bacon and bourbon maple sauce should be ordered every time. Though I also loved the carrot ginger soup and very fresh berry green salad. More...
I love this restaurant! Everything from the decor to the staff to the cocktails to the food...all incredible! Would highly recommend visiting if you're ever in the Tampa Bay Area. ..I live 45 minutes away and gladly make the trek over! Your inner foodie will definitely thank you for dining here.. More...
The kale salad was one of the best I've ever tried! Only reason I go here to be honest. Next to that is the pork chops for dinner! To die for. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because the drinks just aren't that great to me. No matter what I order everything just doesn't seem to be good. Maybe find a new mixologist. I've also gotten the steak here and it's really good as well. More...
Never am I disappointed when we visit On Swann. After a recommendation I tried the kale salad and I think everyone who visits should try it. One of the best, if not the best, salads I have had. It helps that it is covered in cheese but even without all the cheese it's still delicious. The arancini and hot chicken appetizers were also delicious and enjoyed by all at the table. Over the course of visits I've had the burger, pork chop, short ribs, and steak frites and they've all been delicious. The food is always unique and not the same old meals you can get at any restaurant. Really love dining at On Swann. The icing on the cake is the great service and bartenders that make good drinks.

I have been here twice now and the food is always amazing. The servers are also very knowledgeable of the menu and have excellent recommendations. The kale salad is to die for as well the short rib!! Very pleased with our time here. Only thing I can comment on is the bread service. On my first occasion we were not offered bread with our dinner but noticed the table next to us had it, I asked and they brought it out. The second occasion was the same. Hopefully this gets better, however we are very impressed with this restaurant and staff! More...
Such a cool looking place and the food matches the decor. Some really interesting and different menu items and everything we had was outstanding! Love it. Will be back soon.
I went with my two daughters on Father's day. We had the lamb meat balls (I call them "The Silence of the Lamb Meatballs") and they were very good. They come in a red sauce on top of grits that were well prepared(I love grits and these were great). One daughter got the hot chicken fingers and the other a burger. Those items sound plain but the were both very well prepared. I had the Steak Frites which is a very tender brined but not salty skirt steak served with a marrow bone. Everything was well prepared and our server did a great job. The prices were very reasonable. The restaurant is open with eclectic furniture and is a very comfortable place. The menu is shorter but comprehensive and very precise and I can tell they execute each item well. I love local restaurants and hope everyone patronizes this place and the other fine restaurants in the area. If we do not then we will be left with only chains and we will be worse off for it.

Dinner was great. Started with pizette and zepole with ricotta dip. Entree was the scallops. So good I wanted to lick the plate. The only disappointment was the dessert. The cheesecake definitely wasn't homemade. Tastes like a foodservice company special. Great food, great atmosphere. More...
Really good food and ambiance, water glasses smell like eggs sometimes. The Flintstones sized steak is our favorite!
On Swann is one of our go to restaurants in Tampa. We've never had a bad experience and they always have something new on the menu! When in doubt, head to On Swann.
Incredible location, vibe and food. A great spot for a date night, business lunch or girls night. Order the kale salad and add salmon! You won't be disappointed!
AnnMarie was a phenomenal waitress. The food was delicious and all of her recommendations were great. The level of service blew us away.
Every time I come here the service is outstanding! The kale salad is a must and my last visit I ordered the scallops which were delicious and a perfect sized portion. I only wish they had a bigger menu with more options. More...
Food is fantastic and service is excellent , I love to sit at the bar and eat , great cocktails
Amazing. Perfection. Exceptional. Those are all words I can use to describe the food at On Swann. I make it a point to come here every time I come to Florida. There are so many places to eat and I never forget this one. The wine list is amazing. St Supry Sav Blanc is just wow. The liquor menu is like a library. Whether you like Bourbon, vodka, tequila, gin, rum, etc you will find your favorites here. The cocktails are all hand crafted and carefully selected to pair with the menu. Onto the food. I hate kale. Repeat. I. Hate. Kale. Their kale salad is to DIE for. Stacked in a nice mound with the perfect dressing, cheese, bacon, dried berries, nuts. Yummy stuff. The oysters. Omg. 6 huge oysters. Smoked. Not raw. Yum! Breakfast. Yep. Had it and loved it. The pork chop is mouth watering. Hanger steak Yes please. But the winner here are the scallops. You get 3 giant sized scallops perfectly presented and perfectly cooked. The best I've ever had in my life. I also had the short rib pasta. The pasta was perfect al dente and the rib meat was tender and mouth watering. A very heavy dish that you can share for sure. Last but not least I had the Portuguese chicken to change it up a bit on one of my many visits and it is spectacular. A lot of work to get all the meat off the Bones and super messy so make sure you are careful not to get juices on your clothes. The meat is what juicy and tender it falls off the bones. Service: very good. I had a few misses when they were super busy where my cocktail went Unrefilled but for the most part they are provide outstanding service, super fun and friendly to talk to. I've gotten a table and eat at the bar sometimes too and both are good. More...
We went here for the first time for date night. I will say it's not a very romantic place as I pictured very casual. I gave 4 stars because it was extremely loud like loud loud. We couldn't even hear each other to talk and my husband was sitting right next to me. Good thing we're both great lip readers. Also the dining area inside reminded me of a mess hall, everyone is sat so close together. People were constantly bumping into us at one point a waiter almost spilled a glass of wine on my hubby. But on the bright side the service was fast, and the food was bomb! Very unique menu, definitely great if you want to try something new. I order the Lamb chop with an apple type glaze, broccoli and cheese grits it was fantastic the best pork chop I've ever had More...
This is an incredible restaurant and a great choice for a special occasion while traveling. Every aspect was well-done, from entry greeting to drink service and food. It's one of those places where the waitstaff really want you to have a great time and a memorable experience. Wish everyone had this kind of excellence, thank you. More...
One of my favorite food moments of 2019 happened here...It was a special for that evening, 6 different mushrooms emullsed into a perfect velvety mousse. I think about it often. This restaurant is swanky, and sweet but still feels traditional enough to validate getting dressed up for. Which is always fun. The menu changes seasonally and there are many chef specials. Which is also fun. The service is refined but definitely not stuffy, my servers make me laugh, I make the servers laugh we are all very happy here. Which is fun.I have loved every bite I take at this restaurant. The only SLIGHT maybe possible complaint I have is that not every table is a "good" table. Sometimes I have been seated in high traffic tight areas, which makes the experience less enjoyable. More...
My favorite restaurant in Tampa. It's all delicious, but the meatballs and short rib pasta are to die for!
Great food and drinks, and dog friendly! We've tried brunch, lunch, and dinner and have not been disappointed. They also have either the 1st or 2nd best Cuban sandwich in town (I'd need a side-by-side to place appropriately). I wish we could give 4.5 stars, because the only negative is how loud the place is. I mean it is loud - all the sounds bounce all over the place, but that's not worth a full star deduction. More...
Love this place!! Lunch, brunch, or dinner... worth it every time!! Wine list has good variety and prices are decent. Pommes frites are yummy. Their boards are really good (the rillette is delicious!!). Steak frites is amazing (the shallot/cab butter is insane). This place never gets old. Service is very consistent. It can get noisy, as the place is always packed, but don't let this be a deterrent. More...
Great ambiance! Friendly staff. Food was good but not fantastic. Definitely worth visiting though. I had the BLTA and the bread was fresh and tasty.
Our favorite place for date nights. Sitting outside on the terrace reminds us of home (sitting outside in European Cafés)! I also frequent this location for a BFF luncheon or dinner! Food is amazing, dessert is a definite "yes" and we love the coffee and tea with dessert! More...
Their Pork Chop might have been I've had; ever.Everything about my experience was sublime, but I'll start with the food. I ordered the pork chop as recommended by our server. The dish was on a level I hadn't previously experienced. The sweet and savory flavor was creative and fresh. All of the flavors worked perfectly together, and the way they put the pieces of apple on top was something I didn't expect, but it added so much flavor to the dish. The pork was cooked perfectly, it's extremely satisfying when your knife glides through the pork as you're cutting it. It's something I haven't noticed at other restaurants. It made it enjoyable in more ways than just flavor. The grits were also really good. I am no judge for grits, but the consistency was great as well as the flavor. This goes without saying, but presentation was amazing. Food tastes as a good as it looks. Our server was great. She knew a lot about the menu and was incredibly attentive despite the restaurant being packed. Our experience with all of the staff was just as great. It was truly above and beyond. Ambience was great too, the inside was a bit loud so we sat outside. Everything was really clean. I'd recommend here if you're going with a friend or with a group. If you have young kids, I'd recommend you go at one of their less crowded hours, but you'll probably be fine. The people working there really know what they're doing, it was impressive. I went here because it was voted best in Hyde Park, and now I see why. I'll be recommending this to everyone I know. I hope they keep doing what they're doing, because I'll definitely be back for more. More...
This is probably one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa. The restaurant has an amazing vibe with a super cool theme and open kitchen. I love the furniture on the space and all the decor. It's a great place for instagram pictures. The food is just amazing it's really a fine dining place. I tried the risotto and the farm table they where incredibly good !! More...
Yummy. And so cute. Definitely will be back!!!Steak was amazing. Martinis delishGreat ambiance.
First time trying this cute restaurant. We were greeted by friendly faces at the door and proceeded to the bar where we got excellent service. The bartenders were very nice and attentive and gave excellent recommendations. We ordered the sangria and cucumber cooler which were both fantastic. For food we got the saffron app, kale salad, crab omelette and the fries. Everything was outstanding! The manager explained each dish and was very helpful. BEST KALE SALAD! We will definitely come back! More...
Great place for drinks, dinner and hanging out with good friends. We always enjoy our time here.
If I had to pick one restaurant in Tampa that possesses CONSISTENCY in both top-notch taste and presentation, On Swann would be it. From their delicatessen (charcuterie boards) to their desserts, I was thouroughly impressed by the taste, presentation and service. Everything about this place is aesthetically pleasing; if you want to impress a date or some outta Towners, take them here. Well worth the splurge.The chopped kale salad is a great option if you crave something light. It is actually finely chopped when served making it easy to eat and easy to scoop up for sharing. I've tried both the butcher and cheese charcuterie boards. I recommend the butcher over the cheese or ordering the butcher with a side of cheese. I say this only bc the butcher board contains a sample of "condiments" that add to the flavor which include an assortment of mustards, jellies, and honeycombs. The Ribeye and cobia entrees are a must. Service is always great, especially our favorite server Chelsea. Keep up the great work! My taste buds thank you! More...
Delicious food, in anAttractive setting, with very good service. My brother and I go for lunch at least twice a month and have never had a bad meal. Give it a try if you're in the area, you'll be happy you did. More...
