I've been a fan of Upstairs 2 for years. Dine LA was a terrific value. I had steak frites. Steak cooked perfectly rare & flavorful. Starter was the baby beet & burrata salad was delish as was the creme fraiche panna cotta. Wine was a Calif. Chardonnay which I really liked and I had a french red but don't remember the producer. Liked it a lot.
Limited menu do to future remodeling. 👀
Cocktails high priced
The food was very good, but for the first time we had very slow service. We have been there many times before and never had that problem. The server did apologize at the end.
Went for dineLA dinner and the food was outstanding. Would definitely go again with the regular menu.
Although there are carpeted floor, curtains, uphostered banquets and sound deadening ceiling tiles, when full the restaurant is very noisy. They were very busy and the service was a little distracted, although friendly and competant.
Incredible food AND wine. Such a hidden gem. Located on the top floor of the Wine House. I’ve been coming here for the past few years and was sad to hear they were closing down. Surprise! They decided to have a DineLA pop up. I can’t wait to see the renovation and new concept. We enjoyed the ‘16 hermitage.
Exceptional food and service. Casual, but has upscale feeling. We’ll be going back
We had an enjoyable late dinner at Upstairs 2, where there is currently a pop-up restaurant for Dine LA helmed by chef Maiki Le. The 3 course menu that I chose included the ricotta gnudi, which was creamy and rich, and could almost be a meal in itself. For my main course, I ordered the salmon per the recommendation of our very attentive server. Generally, I am wary of ordering salmon because it tends to be overcooked. However, that was not the case with Chef Le's version, which remained slightly translucent on the inside and moist throughout. Lastly, I ordered the Panna Cotta for dessert. The texture was silky, and was complimented well with the tang of the peach preserves and the texture of the crumbles. I had a taste of the sticky toffee pudding, which was sweeter and quite decadent. If you are trying to decide on a Dine LA option, I would hesitate to recommend Upstairs 2.
It was a delicious meal, and our waiter was really nice.
The food was excellent and creative, except that the pears in the mixed salad were hard and under-ripe so disappointing. The servicee was very slow (maybe because this wwas mid-evening on a Friday so crowded - - but our server was courteous and apologetic about the delays). Our main objectin: the noise level was so high we, as a group of 4, could hardly hear one another across the small table. Really annoying!!
Excellent as always. Much missed as a regular restaurant. LA week menu
We are so sad Upstairs 2 doesn't regularly function as a restaurant at the moment, but really enjoyed our delicious goose diiner-a very special event!
We love this place and the folks that own it and work there.
Excellent! Maiki cooks great dishes and the service is friendly and perfect.
The goose and the elk were phenomenal. Our friend thought the lamb was very weird and didn't love it, but the profiteroles made up for that!
We had a wonderful dining experience at Upstairs 2. We went for the annual goose dinner and were not disappointed. The food was terrific, and the wine was excellent and fairly priced.
Love it. Innovative and very interesting menu. And so very tasty. Really delicious.
Excellent Thanksgiving feast! Maiki did a great job.
Perfect Thanksgiving dinner - we were so happy! We love this restaurant
The food was fantastic and a fabulous wine selection. Nice surprise and open on Thanksgiving
The pairing of the wines for Thanksgiving dinner was excellent. The zinfandel blend with the main entree was superb. This place is always top notch.
Made the reservations a few weeks in advance. Got to the restaurant and it was closed. No notification and no phone call that would have saved us from driving there. I will NEVER go to that restaurant
This restaurant has always been our favorite restaurant in all of Los Angeles but it is now closed. We have been told it may re-open next March with a different concept entirely. To repeat:
THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED!!!!!! We had a reservation Saturday night and we reconfirmed it via Open Table Saturday morning, but the restaurant was already closed and no one called us to tell us.
Very out of date decor.
We went once before and the food was amazing. Not so much this time. Pasta Lobster dish was over-cooked with,soggy pasta. My dater had over-cooked pork chop Wasn't crowded so don't know why so ordinary this time.
Food is delicious and a delightful, varied selection. Warm attention to detail. A find in West LA!
As we so often do, we came with good friends who had never been to Upstairs 2 before. Apparently the roof leaked after the recent rain and some ceiling tiles fell down and they were forced to close the dining room just before we arrived. However, they were able to accommodate us in their private party room, so potential embarrassment turned to immediate success as far as we were concerned. We started by sharing a bottle of Italian bubbly rose with a tarte flambé, heirloom tomato salad and peach salad. Off to a perfect start. For entrees we opted for pork chops (my favorite), steak frites and duck breast. Everyone was very happy with their food and the wines we selected by the glass were delicious and perfect matches with each dish. Another great and slightly different experience this time. We will always be back, and I think our friends will, too.
Enjoyed the meal, delicious food, beautiful presentation and great service
Great experience, will definitely be back.
Perfection as always. Sean was, as usual, impeccable as a server.
Great food, great service and an exceptional wine list
Loved that we were personally taken care of by the owners after a mix up on reservations. The food was very fresh and the chef came out to thanked us s. Very good spot , good conversation, great food, very mellow
Hostess was super energetic and service was great all the way through the meal. Their menu is very diverse with unique wine pairings, and a very chill atmosphere/ambiance. We got the bacon wrapped dates, venison meatballs, vegan Bolognese, fried chicken boa, braised goat flatbread, and the berry/coconut panna cotta ~ all of it was REALLY good - would definitely go back!
P.S. We were staying at a hotel down the street someone literally would have to know beforehand like we did (I recognized the poorly lit sign to the left of the wine place after a second glance and told him to do a turnaround in what correctly guessed was a ramp to the parking deck). I’m guessing the very small amount of opportunities to sporadically find the place is the main reason why the place isn’t more popular! Definitely worth the slight confusion at first though!
We enjoyes the food and ambience. Great place for celebration.
Tucked away atop a rather inconspicuous office building, Upstairs Two surpassed all of our expectations. Sean the bartender/server did a great job and Marilyn (Somm) helped us find a great, well priced, old world cab. We had the ahi tuna, chicken bao, bread with butter, a beet sauce, and garlic olive oil, the tomato salad, and the NY strip. We were not disappointed. Highly recommend.
All great. Food good parking easy dessert great. Service outstanding
Delicious food and caring service. Will be back soon.
Awesome dishes with fabulous flavors. Excellent wine pairings. Not inexpensive, but a wonderful dining experience.
Friendliest restaurant, fabulous wine list and great food
