Opened just a little under a month ago, the much-buzzed about Swine Southern Table & Bar is already making quite the name for itself in Coral Gables. Yardbird Southern Table & Bar and Khong River House were and are such massive successes that expectations for the 50 Eggs Restaurant Group's Swine were loaded to say the least. So far it's looking good ? really good. Seems like, for the most part (with only a couple isolated complaints), the bacon and whiskey method is working and everyone's leaving happy. Here's a roundup of what people are saying:

Good News: One Yelp reviewer says, "it has been five days since I had dinner at Swine and I still haven't stopped thinking about it". She also notes that the food was "absolutely delicious" and "out of this world", saying that everything she tried, from small plates to large plates was "amazing". [Yelp]

Hot News: Another reviewer over on Yelp says that Swine is the "hottest restaurant to hit Coral Gables in years!". She says their drinks were "awesome, and probably go down too smooth". As far as food goes, she lists several things she liked, but her "best thing I ever ate vote" goes to the burnt ends. [Yelp]

Debbie-Downer News: This other Yelp reviewer describes the food as "meh", saying he went in with "high expectations based on the reviews" and that was "the first mistake". [Yelp]

Good News: Over on Tripadvisor, one reviewer recaps his experience: "The aroma was one of the first signals after walking into Swine. Incredible! The kitchen is open and visible ? the menu is superb. Definitely "down home" and "southern"". [Tripadvisor]

Awesome News: First thing one Yelper writes is: "I am obsessed". She says, "everything about this place is magical ? from the impeccable service to the perfectly portioned, deliciously seasoned, and perfectly cooked food to the overall feel and atmosphere of the restaurant". [Yelp]

Good News: Another reviewer on Tripadvisor says Swine "brings some genuinely creative turns to downtown Coral Gables". He also says, "service was spot on" and praises the spot for having their act together just several days after they opened. "Props". [Tripadvisor]
