A bit loud music, and asked for Parmesan for gnocchis… 2.50$ charge ! A bit too much pesto in the gnocchis. Still like the place

Two to Tango drink was terrible, hotter than any salsa I’ve had. 5 small meatballs for appetizer were fine but nothing special. Burger was good. Seems overpriced for portions and quality.

Food, service, ambience all excellent as usual! Also, the staff got wind of our wedding anniversary the following day and unexpectedly brought over two desserts. Very much appreciated and one more reason we’ll keep coming back!

We are V regular patrons of Up On Knox.

Love everything about it. Last night was the exception.

Poor service, food was over salted, cold and thrown on the table. We had the charcuterie plate... it was horrible in multiple ways. Hardly any meat, cheese was dried out as was the bread. Felt like it had been left out for a long time before it was served.

V disappointing.

Wow, first off they Oysters were huge, clean and delicious! The Soft Shell Crab was incredible. Just enough and delightfully good. I had the Pork Chop. The Apple and Rhubarb Chutni was one of the best combinations and I love the grilled ramps. This is a dish where you can build the "perfect bite". So good. My husband had the special...the Halibut in the Beurre Blanc w/ marbled potato. The presentation was spot on, the meal itself was nothing short of fantastic...this needs to go on the menu. It was so good. Now for the desserts. Oh my goodness, the strawberry pie!! Not your typical pie and so tasty, but the Chocolate Coffee Pudding was to die for. Don't know what it was called, but I would eat that every time I could. All in all, Up on Knox never disappoints. They fire on all cylinders with every visit!

The best part about Up on Knox is the fantastic covered patio. We really enjoyed sitting outside in the fresh air. The food was ok but nothing to get excited about. Avocado toast was loaded with avocado but the dish was a single piece of bread cut-in half with a thin layer of ricotta that could barely be tasted. The menu said it was supposed to include sprouts but there were none on the dish we received. For $11 dollars I expected more. The omlette and egg and bacon biscuits were also was ok but nothing exciting. I would maybe return for the atmosphere but not necessarily for the food. The pics represent the dishes pretty well even though we had taken a small bite out of each dish before remembering to take the pics. I wish I had taken a pic of the patio to share!

Celebrated Mother’s Day - overall enjoyed the atmosphere, setting, and service. Wish they would have served their regular menu alongside the special menu - Mother’s Day menu options were ok. The French Toast was divine though!

Always a neighborhood favorite - consistently good food and service. I brought my 4 grandkids there for dinner, not sure how it would work for children but it went great. They loved the Knox burgers and the service was quick so none of them had time to get bored or restless!

Had a really nice dinner with a few courses when my sister and her husband were in town. My sister and husband had the mussels and thoroughly enjoyed them (I was drooling over them). My brother in-law had the trout which he also said was excellent. I had the chicken orecchiette and while good, was a bit bland. Lovely patio seating and great service. We'll be back.

Always a great go-to option in the neighborhood for lunch or late dinner. The food (grilled salmon on spiced cauliflower) was excellent. My only complaint is it was cold inside. The outside temp was about 60 degrees and they have every possible door and window open to the outside, allowing cold wind to come in no matter where you sat - I asked for a warm table but she said not really possible today! The outdoor seating is ample for those cold blooded diners, but it would be great to keep some of the doors/windows closed for the warm bloods... Small issue overall but was very uncomfortable - even my hot tea got cold and its was too early in the day for whiskey!
