“Good not great. Super clean.”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Wait staff very attentive as was the owner. Appetizer (potato skins) were very good. Wife's fettuccine with shrimp was very good. My NY steak was ok. Bit fatty and rare when I ordered medium. Good flavor though. Dessert was excellent as was the coffee. We will try again. Fettuccine is on the list but not the steak.

“Disappointed”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 via mobile

We have been to the White Swan several times in the last year and a half. The last 2 times have been very disappointing. The service extremely slow and we had to ask a few times about items that were not brought out. Our daughter's food didn't come out until two of the other kids were almost done with their meal. The server was brand new, and had been left totally alone to fall on her face. I actually felt bad for the poor girl. The food, once it came, was average - nothing special, but not bad either. We went back again to see if our bad experience was an anomaly, but found the same to be true the second time. Doubt we will be going again.

“Excellent lunch!”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

The young lady bartender was right on top of things and very pleasant. Food was excellent. Good mix of drinks. Three lunches, three adults beverages and a salad - less than $50.00 with the tip. Very pleased.

“A Bad Aftertaste, Even Though the Food Was Good”
Reviewed 28 June 2013

This was our second trip to the White Swan, the first being about 2 years ago. My wife got the grilled chicken, I got steak imperial, and we shared an Irish cream cake for dessert. To be honest, we did enjoy our food. The disappointment came when we got our bill. When we ordered, we showed our server an online certificate that we purchased- one that claimed to have no expiration date. The final bill did not reflect the discount, and our server seemed to have no idea what we were talking about. She then went and brought someone else out- a manager I assume- who told us that they no longer participated in that certificate program, and only offered to discount our meal according to the purchase price of the certificate, not the face value. We really didn't feel like arguing with him. Although our meal was good, it wasn't worth the effort- and it definitely wasn't good enough to overcome such poor business practices. We definitely will never go back.
