Neighborhood favorite. Menu works well for sharing. We dine here fairly often and we can say that everything on the menu is tasty, well prepared and creatively (but not ostentatiously) presented. Service is attentive and friendly. We try and dine outside because we like to bring our dog - we find the inside to be just a tad noisy. Basically, you can't go wrong choosing Upland for dinner!

The food was slightly above average. We ordered the mixed green salad and yogurt as appetizers. On my 8th spoonful or so, I noticed quite a large piece of plastic in my yogurt (most likely the packaging the yogurt came in). They asked me if I wanted another and I said yes because I wasn’t even half way finished with it. I expected the yogurt to be complimentary considering such a mistake, but it wasn’t. Moving along, I also order the crispy chicken sandwich, which was very lackluster in appearance and taste. Overall the ambience was great, a little loud, but expected in that type of setting on a Sunday at brunch hour. Good, but not great.

Went for family brunch and we had a great time, the only thing I can say is the chicken sandwich was on the raw side but everyone else’s dish was really amazing

My husband and I had wonderful time at Upland. We had the duck wings, truffle fettuccine, and branzino and it all was outstanding! We sat at the chef’s bar and got to watch the kitchen in action. What a show! Sit there if you can, you won’t be sorry.

LOVE THE FACT THAT OMAKASE AREA IS ‘SECLUDED AND PRIVATE’.

If one doesn’t know what omakase is, they have no business being there.

One of my new favorite restaurants in Miami. Top-notch service, high-quality creative cocktails, comfortable ambiance and seating, and, most importantly, the food is outstanding. My only small gripe was that the wine by the glass was very subpar for the high price (pinot noir and cabernet), but I guess that's what I get for not going for a bottle. Everything else was impeccable. Strongly recommend.

Enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant...feels very California. All the waitstaff were great. We sat near the open kitchen which was fun to watch. The Little Gem salad was delicious and good to share as was the pizza.

Upland is a fantastic restaurant. The ambiance and decor is gorgeous, the food was delicious, the drinks were amazing and the service was stellar. Our waiter Jason was the perfect mix of helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We never felt rushed or ignored...it was just the right level of attention and service. If we lived in Miami Beach we’d be regulars for sure.

I went to Upland NY a few months ago. Then saw the notice in Food & Wine about Upland South Beach. We happened to be in Miami before/after a Cuba trip, and we were able to go. Fabulous drinks, food & service. Beautiful place too.
