My husband and I went here for our anniversary and it was perfect! From the moment you walk in, you’re greeted with smiles and excellent customer service. The wood fired prawns were amazing!

Everything was good but nothing stood out. The pesto was underwhelming. I think the best thing in the menu was their wine selection and the ambience is lovely.

The food was fantastic. Unfortunately, our cocktails took over 10 minutes on each round. Each time, our server apologized, but with a nearly empty restaurant that appeared to be fully staffed, this was disappointing. Even after waiting, we still paid for all of our cocktails. Despite this, the food was fantastic and service was otherwise attentive. Pasta was perfection.

Service was overall a bit lacking. We were six people - three desserts arrived together. Ten minutes later, I had to ask the manager for the other three desserts. When ordering, I asked for one item to be removed from my dish - it was not and I ended up not eating most of it as it was throughout. Everyone else enjoyed their food but did comment that the service was just okay.

However, I have been to Upland several times and usually the food and service are perfect! Perhaps just an off day. I will definitely be returning to give it another go!

Staff was the best I’ve EVER experienced they made you feel extremely welcome. It left such a good impression. The restaurant itself was gorgeous and warm. Drinks & pizza were delicious. Prawns were a little sweet for my taste. Overall really enjoyed it 9.9/10.

Have eaten here about a half dozen times before. Went for Miami Spice. First of all, they did provide the Spice menu without having to ask for it (some restaurants seem reluctant to voluntarily provide it). The choices were good. There are 4 sections - you pick an appetizer from section 1 or 2, an entree from section 3 or 2, and dessert from 4. The pastas were a thick spaghetti - al Dente - we had bucatini and pesto spaghetti, the latter of which was somewhat dry. The trout was served with a crispy glaze along with rice - a tasty dish. The short ribs were charred too much giving it a hard, dry crust but the inside was tender and flavorful. We had the key lime tarts for dessert - the best part of the meal. Service was good but a bit slow - ambiance a bit loud considering the restaurant was only half-full. Overall, it was good but not great.

This is the most chic contemporary American / Italian Resturant south of 5th in South Beach Miami.

The setting and decor give off an 'exclusive' vibe while the modern touches in this eatery feel consistent and visually satisfying.

This whimsical lounge is not only swank -- it is delicious. Mouthwatering food, tasting extremely good -- Upland's menu did not disappoint.

We were highly recommended to order the Kale & Sausage Pizza Pie. It came out in four large slices and it was very filling. The crispy kale mixed with the tender topping had both my partner and I in a state of heavenly bliss (we had to close our eyes to chew as it tasted so unbelievable).

The Truffle fettuccine is a MUST when dining at this Upland Miami location. It was made out of pure love. TRULY delightful, not only for the taste buds, but for the soul.

The meatballs were cooked to perfection as they should be -- pink in the middle and having a succulence to it (the quality of being pleasantly juicy). Slightly crispy on the outside with about two tablespoons of creamy ricotta cheese.

Not what it once was. Menu items have been dumbed down and the level of service is poor. Was an incredible place to dine the first 6-8 months it was open. No longer the same restaurant

We had reservations at 11am for brunch. The restaurant we basically empty and they made us wait 15 minutes while they got our table ready at the very back of the restaurant at a table that sat 4 with a chair in the aisle to sit 5 people. We had to tell them to sit us at the front where they had big tables that could fit 5 people comfortably!

The food is outstanding. The service , however, reminded me of rascal house except there you went for the food and not the experience. The server was impersonal , never checked or cared about our experience. I had been there before and he isn’t the norm as most are excellent. He is the tallest server there

After eating here we were surprised at all the good reviews. I will say the meatballs and parpedelle were delicious, but everything else we had was mediocre at best. And we ordered a lot ($300!worth) including a chocolate dessert we took one bite of and then stipped. Save your money and go somewhere else.
