Swirl Wine Bistro
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.
Fabulous restaurant different from the usual eateries, owned by husband & wife team, she is the highly decorated chef, everything freshly made, don’t be inpatient, great ambience, superb for an enjoyable evening with a few friends
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!
This was my 2nd visit back and again, was not disappointed at all. Everything was exquisite! Love the ambiance and the staff. Will be going back in April with my mom when she comes to town!
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.
small business with high quality offerings...be patient and enjoy what they have to offer
Everything was perfectly seasoned and cooked to order. Loved every bite.
Food and drinks were amazing! Loved the waiter. He gave us great advice pertaining to the menu and was very attentive. Will be back for sure!
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 food and wine great value. Very personable owner! Strongly recommend.
Excellent gourmet food and wine. Definitely will go back.
A hidden gem! Warm, friendly place. Interesting menu options. Great food and well considered wine list with nice choices. Find it for yourself and enjoy.
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.
We had a fantastic dinner. Mike and Judith were the best host and chef!
Strongly recommend to all to have a very special dinner in a wonderful atmosphere.
Hidden gem. Worth the trip even for an east sider. Food world class. Wine sneaky good. Atmosphere inviting. Dont miss this joint!
Quiet tiny place with great menu. Interesting food. Taste great. Will go back
Excellent pulled pork nachos, spicy sea bass, and mushroom tart.
Exceptional food. Great wine pairings. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff
Very nice restaurant tucked away in a Coconut Creek strip. The food was excellent! This is a nice, cozy spot for a date night, which we really enjoyed. We'll be back!
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.
Limited menu, food was good. You can make a reservation which is great since it is a very small restaurant. Service was very very slow.
The best kept secret in the Coconut Creek area. The food was authentic, fantastic and presented in an unbelievable artistic display. The owners are friendly and helpful. On our revisit list or sure!
Great fresh food prepared by chef Judith with great blend of flavors and spices that compliment each other, enjoyed it!
Great find!! Will definitely be back
The food was excellent. This is a small restaurant where food is made to order. Be prepared to have a leisurely dinner. We ordered several small plates and had them served as they were ready. It worked out well. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service was friendly.
Sat nite with friends. Anxious to try something new & fresh! We were delighted with each dish! Bruschetta , best ever. Snapper on cassava cake excellent & easy to share. Bread pudding best ever! Hats off to our host and his talented wife, the chef. Worth the wait while she makes everything to order. We’ll be back soon!
Delicious from the appetizer to the dessert. A bit of a wait for the food but worth every minute. I plan to go back again. I would recommend the escoveitch fish.
First date and I selected the restaurant based on previous positive experience with your site. No surprises excellent meal, chicken dumplings and fillet mignon superb. Started off as the only diners, but others shortly arrived; Very impressive and will likely return
Great place to eat!! The food was so fresh!! Great service!! Just great!! Love it!!
Mine and my fiancee's favorite spot. Chef Judith is amazing at her craft! Mike provides Great front of house service. Wild Mushroom tart is a Must try!! Oxtail ravioli was to die for! The duck w/ pumpkin risotto was Delicious! The wines are Great!! This place is the Best!
Our second visit, this time with friends. The food and service were amazing again!
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.
The service was exceptional, the staff was really kind and caring and the food was delicious!
A true gem in Northwest Broward county. The meal here rivals meals I've experienced around the world! Lots of time, attention, and passion is revealed in every dish!
Absolute Gem!!! Food is outstanding, Service is great! Couldn't ask for more when getting your money's worth.
We had an awesome time at Swirl, certainly a place we will visit again. It has the making of all things you're looking for: great food, great service, great drinks and wine list, very hight attention to details, intimate setting... I can go on and on. Give Swirl a try, you'll whisked away in it's heavenly aroma of fresh food and great wine.
We really enjoyed our experience at Swirl. The owners take great pride in their food and drink and it shows. We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious and the owner was very nice. The wine and beer selection was great too. We'll definitely be back.
A wonderful experience from start to finish. Perfect wine recommendations, beautiful presentation, excellent service and the food was perfect. We will definitely be back. Highly recommend.
