It was OK. The owner/waiter tried to serve 6 people at once. Food came out in 2,1,2,0. Yes, that adds up to five out of six. Food was ok albeit cold. Really tough and tried to like this place but will not come back. Think Waffle House type seating in cheap chairs and tables charging upside pricing.

Almost every review indicates that Swirl is a "Hidden Gem"; I am here to verify both. It is hidden and it is a gem. My wife and I went to dinner there on Friday for the first time based on the reviews in Open Table. It was the first time but won't be the last. Firstly, they honored the reservation(unlike Bonefish Grill in Coral Springs !). Mike, the owner, was friendly and very helpful in explaining the menu and selecting a delicious wine(very knowledgeable). We shared the fish tacos, grilled vegetables and mushroom tart; one more tasty than the other. My wife enjoyed the entire experience so much that she has somehow fit the Swirl in conversations that she has had with everyone she spoke with. Happy wife happy life. Happily looking forward to our return to the Swirl; in short order!

This was an unbelievable find in a very obscure and under developed shopping center. Absolutely worth the trip. The food was outstanding and I am still tasting the cheese tart. Mike welcomed us and told us about the history and vision of the place and I think he’s got it down beautifully. Calm but hip music, lovely comfy setting, and wine by the glass you can’t get at many places! I had a Ribeiro del Duero, and it was perfect with the sea bass. Amazing chef!

The husband wife team here are incredible. Consistently putting out great food with carefully thought out flavor profiles. I have been here several times and the food is outstanding. The quantity of food in each plate is more than you works expect from this type of gourmet food.
Definitely a hidden treasure of Broward.

Excellent meal. Nestled in a secluded corner of the Lyons Plaza shopping center in Coconut Creek, but well worth the short drive from Parkland. Very intimate dining environment, so best for date night or a low key meal. EXCELLENT food and wine. Well worth menu pricing as portion sizes are generous. Do not be deterred. Such a wonderful little gem. We had the Tuna Poke Martini (has a spice kick to it that makes you pause, but is so delicious that you dig in for more and a “house salad” for appetizers. I put house salad in quotation marks because it wasn’t on the menu but felt like I needed some greens. It was a delectable arugula based salad with diced veggies lightly tossed in a delicious vinergarette with shaved Parmesan. Both were absolutely delicious. We had a grilled Branzino atop s delectable coconut based sauce with veggies and spinach (fish of the day) as well as the filet atop wild mushroom risotto. Both were incredibly delightful and generous portions. This was paired with a wonderful South African red blend that was excellent.

We didn’t have time to try dessert or coffee as we had to jet back home to relieve the babysitter. Only word of advice would be to plan to linger and enjoy yourself. There is only one check working and everything is made to order. So yes, you have to wait, but not obnoxiously long and it is well worth it. Top notch establishment. Very intimate as there are only about 6 -7 tables.

Music was fantastic too if that matters to you! We will be back for sure!

Amazing dinner! As we walked in my husband was a little apprehensive as it sits in a strip mall and is quite small. It didn’t take long for him to change his mind though. We started with the conch ceviche which was an explosion of flavors in your mouth. We shared the jerk chicken on a bed of mash which was so soft and tasty. The kick of the jerk was toned by the sweetness of the mash. We finished with a bread pudding dessert and we were in heaven. Can’t wait for a return visit.

Best conch salad since being in Nassau; also enjoyed sliders and tacos. Definitely elevated. Creme brulee was yummy-really good sugar crust. Hidden gem tucked away in a corner--no signage even--handful of tables, so be sure you make a reservation. Inventive menu, gourmet presentations, friendly staff, delicious food.

A delectable hidden gem in Coconut Creek! This was our second time back and my boyfriend and I shared the grilled octopus salad, duck breast, chicken and dumplings (way better than what your thinking) and oxtail ravioli (had to have it again!) And bread pudding for dessert. Everything was flavorful and very rich - a great combination of flavors and perfect portions especially if you enjoy sharing a few different plates. The restaurant is quaint and charming with a modern vibe and has artwork on the walls from local artists. Do NOT judge this place by the lackluster shopping plaza, as its surroundings do not reflect the wonderful food, atmosphere and hospitable couple that owns and runs the restaurant. Well worth a visit! Good for a small, intimate date night or a small group or even having a larger, private dinner party.
