Best meal we have had in a long time. With Wine ($200) and drinks ($100) it was an $800 night for a party of 4 and, unbelievably, was worth every penny!

Our first time here and we took two guests from out of town and we couldn't have asked for a better night. Our server was friendly and professional. We tried quite a few items from the menu and all the dishes were fresh, full of flavor and presented beautifully. I would say the only flaw was in the desserts. We tried two of them and neither lived up the incredible food we had for our dinner. Overall, an A plus!!!!

Outstanding restaurant. Not a daily diner unless money is no object, but a superb and interesting menu. Very attentive service. Excellent crafted cocktails. Beautiful presentation from locally sourced farms. I highly recommend sharing plates and ordering at least three courses. Will happily return.

The Miami version of Upland is beautiful - even nicer than NYC. We went for Sunday brunch and it was awesome. The cucumber infused Bloody Marys were great, the avocado omelette with salsa fresca was on point, and the chilaquiles were amazing. Nice, mostly local “south of 5th” crowd.

Pizza was good. Everything else was MEH. Service was just ok. I hate when staff come over and constantly asks how you like a dish. May not like the answer. love and frequent NY location but won’t make this one a go to for us.

My husband and I had a great time! First, the restaurant is beautiful. I loved the theme and interior decor. We went for brunch and everything was delicious. The craft cocktails, even the sorbet dessert, no complaints. Our server was Marshall and he was awesome. Very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.

We went for a birthday and right away as we got in the hostess wished the party Happy Birthday and the same with our waiter, Mike. The service was excellent, Mike was stellar and made great recommendations and so attentive. The servers were great also advising how the chef recommends we try the dishes. The food was so good and flavorful. Each dish just kept hitting a home run and the cocktails with my dish choices all paired well. The atmosphere of the restaurant is welcoming but modern. It is not so noisy you can't have a conversation. I am so happy to have come here and the birthday guest felt so special. Thanks Upland, can't wait to visit again.

Went for Miami Spice dinner. Relatively quiet on a Thursday night. Ate outside. Had little gem salad and tuna tartare for appetizers, bucatini and steak for entrees, and the banana chocolate tarts (the best) for dessert. All dishes were very good as was the service. A good value with the Spice menu.

Trout was overcooked- seemed like they tried to make it “chargrilled” but it was just charred. Service was slow.

We have celebrated our 1 year anniversary at Upland this Saturday night. It was the place we had our first date! The food was good but not outstanding.
In the past their lamb chops were excellent but not on the menu anymore?
The duck was ok. The Florida prawns were delicious. The truffle linguini were excellent.
So it was a great experience, the service could have been better.

Our second visit to Upland and we were very happy overall. We have to mention our waiter, Adrian, as he was - hands down - the best waiter / host that we have ever experienced in Miami. Thank you Adrian!
The food at Upland is exactly what we look for and delicious. It is exceedingly fresh, of very high quality and prepared very simply. The wine list is unbelievable and suggestions from the staff skew towards great wines for great values. We will happily go back.
