Diner Reviews
  • "I was looking for a venue to celebrate my boyfriend's 30th birthday and was told about Uptown Restaurant from a friend. I was introduced to Katie, Event Manager who was absolutely great; very patient and accommodating. She answered all my questions no matter what time of the day. There was a nice crowd in the restaurant not too crowded. I had the lychee martini as well as the appetizers. The waitress was more than attentive, replenishing our table with food and making sure everyone was happy. I would DEFINITELY recommend this venue to anyone looking for a nice place to hang out, eat and drink. We actually went back Sunday for brunch but there was a bit of a wait and we were tight on time. I will definitely be back!"

  • "The food was very tasty but the dj was blasting house music so it was a bit difficult to talk to my friend across the table."

  • "They actually didn't have our reservation on file but were able to get us a table right away. The atmosphere is very interesting and very nicely decorated. The waitress was not very attentive and unfortunately the member of my party who is gluten free was given toast on top of her omelet after the waitress had assured her that it would be free of gluten. Also, you get two drinks with the brunch but the waitress did not seem concerned with making sure those getting coffee had full cups. The brunch menu also did not match the exact menu that was online but the food was pretty good. Nothing amazing."

  • "Big screens and good beer selection make this a logical spot for teams of sports fans to watch the game. Food was better than expected. The beer selection much better."

  • "While our waiter was absolutely horrible and had an unwarranted attitude with us the entire meal, the deal is still really great for brunch in NYC. 2 drinks + an entree for $16... Doesn't get much better than that."

  • "My girlfriend and I recently celebrated my birthday. Everything was great except the waitress had an attitude that she should have left at the door. I might not go back for dinner. It's a better venue for brunch and lunch or catching drinks with a group before heading out for dinner elsewhere."

  • "I had Cobb salad, my husband has chicken parm. Food was good, service was good, prices were reasonable...my only complaint was it was so darn loud. We would go back though."

  • "I came here with my boyfriend for Valentine and it was perfect! The food and drinks were awesome. I couldn't find a better place for that occasion. It was a great find online. I was so happy to come upon this restaurant. I would definitely recommend and come back here."

  • "Crazy affordable brunch with 2 drinks included and an extensive menu. Service was speedy and respectful. This could be my new brunch spot on the UES."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "The brunch special is awesome. You get 2 drinks and a HUGE portion for under $16. The food was actually tasty as well. Great spot if you'd like to grab brunch before visiting one of the UES's many awesome museums."

  • "I love the huevos rancheros and order them every time. Looks like the recipe has changed a bit but still delicious. 2 brunch drinks with entree at about $15 a person is a great deal! Service was mediocre at best--I think our server was covering the entire floor, which is just too much. She forgot things a few times, but was very nice and accommodating. Fortunately, we were not in a hurry so it was fine. I would definitely recommend for brunch."

  • "The restaurant itself was really nice. Looks like it should be a really great place, but we were very disappointed to find out it wasn't. For starters, they didn't have much of what was on the menu. One of the people in our group ordered something, the waiter said they didn't have it. She changed her order, but they didn't have that either. They didn't have pumpkin ale - in October - even though it was listed on the drink menu. Later on we ordered dessert, but of course had to change those orders since they didn't have one thing or another. We went on a Sunday evening where there only about 5-6 other patrons (we didn't get the memo obviously and they took forever to bring out everything. Nice place, disappointing service."

  • "We went for dinner and both had one of their salads. I'd asked for the dressing on the side, in case I didn't like it, and they'd already put it on. I accepted it but would have preferred a different dressing on the Thai chicken salad. In general, I prefer their brunch menu and food to the dinner food."

  • "They offer a really good brunch deal and the food is good when they get it right. We were lucky it wasn't very crowded today. Sometimes it can get pretty noisy. Our waitress was sweet. We'll go back."
