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 was excellent. We both loved the skirt steak and bucatini. The service was mediocre.
Fabulous food, service and cocktails! Highly recommend
Amazing food. Great drinks. Really high end look to the restaurant. Service was top notch as well.
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.
Extraordinarily loud! Nice waiter but because he was so busy he did not come to table as he might have otherwise.
Lively atmosphere! Great food! Our server Adrian was amazing!!
The food is always delightful at this restaurant. I’ve eaten here many times now and consider it one of my favorite restaurants in Miami Beach.
Upland atmosphere, you feel the warmth in a beautiful and casual setting. The food off the chain. Try the carrots Yes the Carrots. In a balsamic reduction with sunflower seeds - absolutely delicious.
Excellent dishes overall. Pasta is freshly made. Fairly loud dining room. Attentive service.
Ambiance very nice
Anyone visiting Miami, this is a must go to! Such good atmosphere and food was unbelievable x
Upland is a very good restaurant, especially in an area where there aren’t many restaurants for foodies... Love the food, service and the ambiance at the restaurant. The Branzino for two/three people I delicious!
Very nice restaurant recommended by a friend a year ago. Had a nice experience the first time and we came back this year for another nice experience. The menu has a nice variety of choices from fish to meat. The wine list is quite extensive .
Great place to go either with family or friends. Great food, great service, Great menu selection.
The best steak I have ever had. Expensive but worth it
This restaurant is beautiful, but that’s about all that’s positive about this place. Our waiter was arrogant right from the start—not friendly or inviting at all. We ordered drinks, entrees, and pizzas and when our food arrived 7 out of 8 girls in my group were disappointed. The waiters descriptions of some pizzas (which we naturally based our orders on) were wildly inaccurate. Four of seven pizzas were completely burnt on the bottom. Even the ones that weren’t burnt were nothing special. I had high hopes because this was a highly recommended spot, and while it’s pretty inside,the food and service at this place misses the mark. Wouldn’t return.
My favorite restaurant! The food this time was better than ever! The branzino is exceptional! The service was excellent! Our go to place when guests are in town.
Main waiter was excelente and delightful. Food portions were big, salty and bit over cooked. When while fish was served it was dropped on the table and no one asked if we wanted served had to flag down waiter to ask for it to be filleted. Once brought back to the table none where all over the fish.
One expect at those price points the restaurant would know how to properly serve a whole fish.
Should include the same burger as the ny location
Fantastic experience. Great waiters, great staff, great chefs.
Food and service was amazing! Can’t wait to go back.
We always enjoy Upland because the food, service and atmosphere is always perfect. I've dined at the NY location as well and the Miami Beach location is just as outstanding. I would highly recommend Upland to locals as well as tourists visiting Miami and Miami Beach.
Very good place
Highly recommend this place
Absolutely amazing !
Start to finish !
The food is by far the best in south beach !
Went on a Sunday at 830. It was our last night in South Beach and we were excited to try Upland. When we arrived, there was barely anyone in the restaurant and for south beach we were so surprised. We sat at the chef counter table, which would have been fun if it was busy.
We started with the Prawns, which were four for $27. When they arrived the top two were large and the bottom two were small. Nothing like Prawns. They had great flavor, but we were disappointed by the size.
Next we ordered the branzino for two and potatoes. The staff complimentary gave us broccoli which was very nice. The fish was yummy, but nothing to go back and get.
If it would have been busy and lively we would maybe had a better dinner, but with no one there and even the kitchen doing inventory during our dinner we were disappointed.
Such a beautiful restaurant, plus the food, service, ambiance, EVERYTHING was superb....we will be back!!
Food is good, Slow service, noisy place - outside terrace is quit nice and not noisy
our go to place in Miami Beach-food-service are wonderful
Delicious! Get the branzino and make sure they fillet it for you! Yumm! Will be back soon
Excellent dinner and best place
The food is always good, we went for the happy hour and the bartenders were very knowledgable and made great cocktails, always a fun place!
The service was very typical South Beach Service. They sat us at a dirty table and then instead of taking us to another, clean table, had us sit down and cleaned the table while we were seated. I had to ask our server what her name was. The food was good. The wine was very pricey.
This was mostly a miss for us. We only had items from the happy hour menu, but they just didn't really live up to what we expected. We ordered squash blossoms (no squash, just cheese, we couldn't figure it out), but it was tasted and not eaten. The burger was my favorite, but again, it just wasn't exceptional. Really nice ambiance and liked the server. The happy hour drinks were solid. Maybe the food on the regular menu is better or our expectations were too high?
consistent top quality across the board, staff, food quality both in ingredients & prep room is cool hard to beat in south beach
This place had great customer service and great food. It was a good price for the food that we got. All of us left full and very happy. I would highly recommend trying this place for brunch.
