I like the food and service but the prices are way out of line with the level of the restaurant
16$ for a plate of two beets? Way too expensive

This is our second time to dine at Upland - excellent! Exceeded our expectations by far. The ambience is casual yet elegant. The menu interesting and delicious. The sommelier is superb - he knows his wine cellar and is a great source to trying a new wine. The wait staff is exceptional- friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Can’t wait to go back - maybe this weekend!!!

We went to Upland for my daughter's 16 birthday it was my husband, myself and my daughter. We ordered a variety of appetizers so we can experience different things - the Prawns, the Tuna tartar, and the duck's wings. The Tuna was excellent and delicate with strong citrus flavor and micro greens. The prawns were fresh and delicious. The duck wings were ok but more ordinary than the other dishes. For the main course, we shared the Branzino which is highly recommended and came out looking amazing and tasting great. The only reason I gave them 4 stars instead of 5 stars is because the fish was simply too rich. It was succulent and butter - but we all felt like we ate a whole stick of butter and we all felt a little off that night from eating a heavy meal. So I would have liked the fish to be a little more on the healthy side without overdoing the butter, otherwise, it was a great meal.

Very overpriced poor food. For $33 my salmon was tiny and tasted like it was from Costco. Horrible and too loud atmosphere. Definitely not going back.

The night was very special at Upland, great food, fantastic ambiance, and lively crowd. It was really full, so maybe this is why service could have been a little better, but we loved the whole experience from the start.

They seated me in front of the host at the next table. So every time I looked up I felt I was at the wrong f table. And the restaurant was empty! If that’s not bad the som served the wrong vintage wine and attempted to justify it for a whooping $5. When I got home I looked up the prices and found that I was served a wine that is approx $10cheaper than the menu price. Unfair! Ridiculous! I will wait to see if u plan to do do something.

My sister and I came here to celebrate my graduation and fell absolutely in love! We loved the creative take on the veggies (falafel+avocado, the beets and the carrots are MUST orders!) We also tried the two fish courses on the menu and really enjoyed both, the salmon and cod. Most of all, we felt the food was both delicious and healthy. We loved it so much, we came back for dinner the next day! Justin Smillie, you're my new hero!!

Excellent evening overall. Our server, Antonio, was phenomenal as was Troy, the sommelier. The only hint of poor service, or at least low "eq" was with Jen, the hostess. When I called to let the restuarant know me and my party were stuck in traffic and would be 10 minutes late; her response was that they release tables 15 minutes after the reservation time, so I should hurry. When we arrived, there were at least 8 tables empty and were told to go to the bar and have a drink while she'd see what she could do. Huh?? I have the courtesy to call and explain I'm running late, and then get a scripted response and tepid welcome?!? Luckily, everyone else and the food saved the evening.

Ordered a burger and tasted like Mc Donald’s. I was not asked how would I like the meat cooked.
The avacado toast was not prepared and the toast over toasted.
Pizza and Bloody Mary ok.
Asked the waitress for more water and she looked like she was annoyed.
I go to the location in NY and it is fantastic!

Need to be a big fan of "California Cuisine" to appreciate the menu and ambiance. Took my family there for Mother's Day diner. Service was excellent. My daughter is a vegetarian and had enough to choose from to make her happy; she especially liked the carrots. Impressed with how management personnel continually circle the restaurant to make sure everything is working smoothly.

Despite “too much ado” it really come up to be “about nothing” Siting outside is ridiculous, inside too noisy. Food is ok, but... there are 3 salads, 3 cold appetizers and about 6 main dishes. Common! And it’s claiming to an “upscale restaurant”?! Pretty boring and pathetic

Such a fun atmosphere, most friendly dining I’ve ever experienced, quaint and interesting, large portions of delicious food, LOVED our waiter Mackenzie...super knowledgeable and all over super guy. Super vibrant bar scene outside and don’t miss out on the second floor lounge/bar area. Plan on a drink before and after dinner
Menu highlights for me ...pork and slaw app, roasted eggplant with tahini app and the burger ...ordered way too much food the apps are generously sized. This place is special gem not to be missed for the food, the fun and all over atmosphere

The food was characteristically delicious but arrived a bit lukewarm despite my specific request to bring it hot, which was disappointing. The cacio e pepe, which is usually delicious was also just a tad overdone and insufficiently al dente. Finally, we got four different glasses of wine — two whites and two reds — and, sadly, none of them were great. They were interesting grapes but just had no complexity. So, very friendly service and mostly good food plus some slightly disappointing wine gets to a four star from me.

This was the second time I've been to Upland and the food and service is still exceptional! I think if they continue to provide great food and a friendly atmosphere, they will be able to last where many others have failed. The only negative is the wines by the glass are really expensive!!! The cheapest wine is basically the same prices as the cocktails, I think that's too high even for south beach standards. I would also really love to see specials added to the menu, the food is so good, but I'd love to try new things as well!!!

Recommended by more than one person we met on our trip to South Beach. Food was amazing and the service as good as it gets. Completely chill and very fair on price. The parmessan and black pepper pasta was very simple and very good as was the baby gem lettuce salad...

Great dinner. Had drinks at the bar. Bartender ordered the wrong pizza so he offered us the unused pizza. Dinner was great- gem salad & stuffed zucchini flowers followed by lobster pasta & charred broccoli. Everything was delicious and service was great. Server recommended a great Sicilian wine.
