Loved the decor. Loved the food- recommend the squash blossom, cacao E pepe and the roasted carrots encrusted with sunflower and coriander seeds.
You do not get what you pay for at Upland. Expectation was top-notch service, exciting food, and prime location. All you get here is location. To our waiter's credit, it was not her fault that we could not hear her speak over the volume of the music. Wine bottle service was a bummer - at this price point, a sommelier should approach the table and help make a suggestion. The only outstanding item we tried was the side of carrots. Hamachi had flavor, but lacked in portion size. Duck wings and steak entree were mediocre. Salmon entree was beautiful in presentation but lackluster in flavor. We dipped everything in the sauce that came with the carrot side dish since it was the most flavorful item on the table. We will not return, and we will not recommend. For a $300 dinner in the city, there are several better options.
Amazing food and feels miles away from the busy restaurants on ocean drive
We had a wonderful dinner last week. The gem salad and salmon were outstanding and the guys loved the pizza and pasta. We had a wonderful server named Margie, she was outstanding. We cant wait to return.
Exceptional Service especially for a table of 8
Prawns are not worth the price! Branzino is excellent. Generally good restaurant.
Loved every second
The branzino was fantastic! Don’t miss it. Inside seating area is lovely, but very loud. Outdoor patio is preferred.
Best Italian in South Beach! Our server Megan was great! The room is really nice- booths, tables and chef kitchen seating as well. Pasta were delicious- Bucatini Cacio e Pepe, Lobster Spaghetti and Truffle Fettucine. All perfect!! We will be back!!
Food was very good. It was the service that impacted our experience. Our server was more interested in serving the couple at an adjacent table and we had to ask to have dishes removed, a dessert menu, and our check. It took 20+ minutes with only 2 people in front of us to get our car from the valet service. Although the valet is not managed by the restaurant, it is right outside the door and the poor service left a bad impression on those waiting to get their cars.
Overall food was good, some dishes better than others. Pasta seemed to lack flavor except for the lobster dish. A little too pricey for ambience and portion size. Outrageous pricing for glass of wine of which we had multiple and should have been advised to order by the bottle
Fabulous restaurant in South Beach - away from the maddening crowds near Ocean/Collins in the teens! Great service, excellent food - nice bar scene. Had been to Upland here in NYC on Park Avenue South and loved it. Upland Miami is even better! Cacio e Pepe to die for! Grilled prawns were amazing!
Alba is the best!
Gorgeous food in a gorgeous spot. We love their bottomless brunch and such a great burger
Amazing as Always a favourite of ours when we come to Miami
We came for the Branzini fish! Excellent!
2nd time here. The beet appetizer was now 50% smaller, and only 1 kind of beet, all for the same $. Hmm. On the menu they offer non-alcoholic juices; these appear to be freshly made ($11 or something), but are just from the grocery store. The steak was excellent. As was our waiter, but the lady behind the welcome counter was far from friendly - the tall lady who led us to our table made up for this, though. All in all, just shy of 5 stars all around.
We went for brunch on Sunday before we flew out. They were a little slow to get us going but then the service was great. The food was excellent and the outdoor patio was so peaceful. What a great way to end our trip to SoBe.
Treated our family with kindness and patience. Great experience
It was unfortunately too loud. You could hardly hear the person in front of you. Other than that, had a very good dinner.
Everything was wonderful. Amazing food and drinks, great service and a lovely ambiance.
We came in for my birthday, the drinks were delicious, the food was fantastic, but the service was amazing. Adrian was so great and attentive it really made the experience even better! Loved it!
Great food and service. A must try!
Great food and wine, the atmosphere is really nice. A bit too noisy As the acustics is not too good. Also really cold - guess it is an American thing, but we were freezing.
This place was a FABULOUS decision. I'm so glad we took a chance on a place we'd never heard of. We enjoyed Easter brunch here and had made a reservation for 5, but when we showed up with 6, they were so nice to accommodate us when they were completely booked. And we got lucky with a table outside on a day that wasn't too hot so we enjoyed the excitement of people-watching on South Beach, which was a nice surprise. The food was exceptional, and the chef accommodated my request for a low-carb alternative to an Engish muffin on my eggs Benedict (using tomato!). That earned them big brownie points, in my opinion. The pricing was surprisingly reasonable for the area so I would definitely look forward to returning. Highly recommend!
Adrian our waiter was great. Helpful on suggestions and hard workers. Thanks for making our evening.
Out server Adrian was incredible.
Such an amazing place! A perfect balance of classic/basic and sophisticated dishes. The service was outstanding! The location is great too, not on a busy street, yet there is always something to see when you’re sitting outside.
Truffle tagliatelle and lobster pasta were exceptional!
It took a bit of time for the server to greet us but then things improved. The fettuccine and meatballs were amazing. Pass on the zucchini fritters. It was too doughy and it gets soggy quickly when it soaks up the miso sauce.
Great spot. Very vibrant bar scene with great Happy Hour. The service was excellent and the servers fully explained how the menu worked and offered suggestions for pairings. Would definitely recommend this restaurant. Started with Happy Hour at the bar and then moved to a table for the meatball appetizer, pasta and the half chicken. The flavors were delicious and we shared all three courses and were more than satisfied. Will be back!!!
Le service était impeccable et la nourriture delicieuse
Excellent dining experience. From the salmon to the duck, steak and roasted chicken all beautifully prepared, delicious. Ambience is upscale New York City feel with open kitchen.
One of my favorite spots, amazing food and atmosphere. Only thing that needs improvement: hostess at the entrance. We were directed to the table then asked to go back at the entrance and wait because the silverware was not on the table! Very weird. Other than that, amazing restaurant
one my favorite places in miami. Go here 2x/ month!
Great food and service !!
Upland is my go-to restaurant for celebrations and conversation matched by excellent food and service.
The branzino for two is my favorite, followed by the trout, and the pasta dishes. Your bartenders are friendly and knowledgeable. Upland is comfortable, lively, and elegant. I love the corner banquet seats.
consistently outstanding we highly recommend upland for dinner, happy hour or brunch never disappoints
Great food. Good service though they can relax a bit - a meal is something to enjoy, not race through the courses and dash out. Interiors of the restaurant is beautiful and spacious. Food super delicious. Bit too expensive for the small portions - if it is a sharing style (and it is) $26 for a half full bowl of pasta is a bit much. But overall was very pleased and left very happy & would definitely come back!
AMBIANCE AND DELICIOUS DELICIOUS, UNIQUE FOOD! WE LIVE AROUND THE CORNER AND ARE SO THRILLED TO HAVE THIS IN OUR BACKYARD. A TRUE STELLAR DINING EXPERIENCE. AND THE INTERIOR LIGHTING IS INSANELY BEAUTIFUL. WELL DONE.
Too expensive for what it is. And my pasta was extremely salty. Service was good and the place is nice.
