The food is fabulous. We had the duck and the short ribs, highly recommend it.
I would definitely recommend Upper West. We had a super meal--everything was delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The fresh corn dishes were particularly good, as were the mussels.
We will definitely be back.
Food is always delicious! Service was great.
It was probably the best meal of my life! The wait staff was super friendly and the food was just off the charts. Thank you, Upper West! Thank you!!
We always love Upper West. It is our go to. Wonderful people, wonderful food, wonderful neighborhood feel
Our server was amazing. we celebrated a group birthday and had a great night.
everyone loved the food and the dessert was compliments of the house and yummy.
It was a bit too noisy to talk, however.
Alway a great dining experience.... Chef Nick is amazing!
Great food and festive environment! Enjoy eating here and bringing family, friends and business associates.
Really nice place & good grub.
One of the consistently best restaurants on the Westside. Service, food, drinks are all top quality. Love Upper West!
Great spot. Food is reasonably priced, creative dishes, and helpful staff. I'll be back!
excellent service by Israel. food was great i wish for more vegetarian dishes
Love it !
Excellent in all areas! And there are very few places that are fantastic, with great food AND you can make a reservation for 11 people the day before online.
Really great food- recommend the salmon chips and the cauliflower, and the chocolate crunch cake! service was a little slow but still a great experience
Food was amazing! Short Rib pasta special was probably the best of the items we had. Also, the salmon crunchy rice and grilled octopus were both great. Service was also very good.
Actually the food was unique and very well presented. The seating was kind of divided into two areas and luckily we were seated in a quieter area where we could hear each other while we watched a classy film projected on the wall. All in all a fun evening with great food and good service.
Great experience. Met my lady here 10 years ago, and we went back to celebrate Valentines.
The food and service was very good. We definitely plan on going back.
The food is excellent. The service was great, just a little too rushed.
Wonderful food and romantic atmosphere. We were seated immediately upon arrival and we’re delighted with the food and seating.
Great as usual
I love this dining room - high ceilings, high windows that let in lots of light. Unfortunately, it is VERY noisy. My friend and I had trouble hearing ourselves and the waiter. We chose simple soup and salad -- the sweet corn soup was delicious, but the sandwich did not appeal to either of us. We felt disappointed. Clearly a popular place. Might try it again at a quiet time of day.
Oscars watching party. They screwed up our food order and my dad had to wait for his entree for a long time while we were done with our entrees. Table was so so, a little far from the screen.
Points were not issued by Upper West for this reservation. I would greatly appreciate points being honored for this reservation that was fulfilled. Many thanks, M.M. Pillar
Wanted to love this as much as Border Grill, but it just doesn’t compare. The food was good- but not worth the $$
interesting menu... varied and appealing. service very attentive
The food was delicious, My Sea Bass was very good and the mushroom appetizer. The Cioppino my husband ordered lacked more tomato broth, but the flavor was good. The decor was very tight seating. It was our first time there and we were celebrating our 20th anniversary (no dessert was offer or included, but I guess I should've checked before I checked that box and booked on Open Table.).
The flight of Tequila and Beer $10 was good for us because my husband like the Tequila and I liked the Pale Ale French Beer. My Petite Syrah wine was definitely a short pour as I saw other wines delivered with significantly more in their glasses.
We got in at 7pm and finally left at 9 because the service was soooo slow..if we go again or if we recommend people to go..i would go after 8pm..
Also, if you don't valet park (my husband doesn't like valet parking in general), then you have to find very limited street parking or park at the Trader Joes parking at your own TOWING risk.
Fantastic. Great cocktails, appetizers, mains—not a single complaint. Could be as casual for everyday or as nice as a special birthday. Great all-around restaurant.
The people are welcoming, the food and drink are very good, but it's a very loud room.
Every plate is tasty & well-composed. Everyone at Upper West is friendly and wants to help you choose the best food/wine/whiskey experience. I've been weeknights, weekends, and DineLA and have always left thinking I need to go back.
Our first time and we will definitely go back. My hamburger was perfectly prepared and so tasty. Service was attentive and personable. We went at 6:15 so not many diners at first but restaurant was full and buzzing by 7:00.
This is one of my favorite haunts. Every time I bring someone new, she loves it. Great food. Good variety. Thoughtfully crafted cocktails. Rotating art by local artists. Super friendly staff. What's not to love?
