Meal good8/10. Dessert good 7/10. Scotch great 10/10. Parking easy. Table good service outstanding.
Perfect for a catch up with an old friend! Marilyn, as always, was a gem!
Always enjoyable. Four of us had great food. And great drinks.
Upstairs 2 is always reliable and fun. The food by Chef Maiki Li is amazing and always creative and seasonal. The drinks are great and the people are always fun. A good mix of newcomers and regulars at the bar for happy hour
Upstairs2 is a real neighborhood gem. We’ve been dining there for almost 10 years and love it. The food is consistently delicious, the service attentive and friendly, and the wine list is extensive. Highly recommended!
Thoroughly enjoyed our evening
Nice atmosphere, reasonably priced food. Lovely place.
Marilyn, hostess, was great . All in all a very pleasant experience with the food leading the way.
Food was great and the service even better.
The temperanillo was delicious. The squash salad was fantastic.
Everything we ordered was delicious. The gnocchi was absolutely fantastic and the sticky toffee dessert is to die for. Definitely recommend if looking for new place to try.
Amazing amazing amazing! Can’t say enough about this place! Marilyn, the sommelier, is incredibly knowledgeable. The food is delicious with perfect pairings for every course. Sean, our server, provided exceptional service! We will be back!!
Hostess was not very welcoming....server was fine.
Valentine’s day - food was amazing - service warm and they handled the holiday rush with grace. Wine pairing was spectacular.
Valentine’s Day. Cozy spot. Friendly and relaxing. Good parking. We had delicious food and nicely paired wine.
Delicious dinner as always, but it is a tight night and one feels that energy while dining.
Service, dining , wine pairing was superb
Went here for a friend's birthday. First off, the manager was amazing. Friendly, knowledgable. Our actual server? Not so much. This place is located above The Wine House and the restaurant is centered around wine. When we asked the server how different glasses of wine were, his answer was, "I think it's supposed to be good." When I asked what one of the meats under the charcuterie list was, his answer was, "Cured meat." Other than this, the food was solid, came out at a nice pace, and we enjoyed ourselves overall.
Wonderful dishes and excellent wine selection. Comfortable room for date night out before a show. The chef was most generous with her advice (and even a recipe) wow what a great place.
This is a really nice place and the prices are quite reasonable for what you get. The wine listing is outstanding. The food is good. It is overall a 4.5 by OpenTable standards but I cannot give it a rating of 4.5 in the OpenTable system.
My wife and I love this place. Great food reasonably priced. Excellent wine choices.
However, one thing we would like to recommend, is for them to replace their ugly carpet with
hardwood or tile floors. It would make a world of difference for the ambience.
Group of 4 to celebrate. Portions were very small, but not priced accordingly.
In a word, inconsistent. One of us had duck breast, dish was quite good and the accompaniments excellent. The other asked for medium rare salmon; it was delivered well-done and dry. After our complaint, the chef (apparently a humorist) delivered a piece of literally raw salmon. (It was warm, so at least it had not been delivered straight from the cooler.)
They attempted to charge us for the salmon; after an objection to the manager, it was removed from the bill without any apologies.
Between the difficulty of accessing the restaurant at dinner hour (it is next to an entrance to the 405 which backs up for blocks), the inconsistent food, and the management attitude, perhaps it would be best to find another venue. We certainly will.
Lovely food and warm atmosphere with interesting menu
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We were there for DineLA and the menu was excellent. Very good value.
The food was incredible
We did the dineLA. Totally worth it! We had the cauliflower soup, gnocchi appetizer and short ribs main course and Porkchop main course. Didn't care for the bread pudding but I'm not a bread pudding person. Great service.
good food, great wine pairings, good price...a great, relaxing place for husband/wife getaway from the stress of kids at home.
Great place if you love wine! I differently will come back and do the wine paring.
This restaurant is always great - so great that we brave the traffic jam that sometimes occurs due to location. There is ample parking once you get there and inside is serene (especially after the traffic). Recommend going early and allow a little extra travel time.
Upstairs2 never disappoints. The food was delicious, wine exceptional and the service spot on. Thanks for another wonderful evening !
Great food and wine choices with super service and expert Somellier Marlyn- location next to 405 not ideal but if you can look beyond that. If this restaurant was near beach or in BH, it would be so famous but then might loose its great value- so it’s a hidden gem
Upstairs 2 is one of our favorite restaurants and never disappoints. This time we went for DineLA. My wife and I agree the cauliflower soup was delicious and smooth as silk. My wife enjoyed her salmon, I the pork chop. Highly recommend the wine pairing. That is the strength of this restaurant. Maiki makes amazing food with seasonal ingredients and Marilyn knows how to pair wine to please your taste and perfectly compliment what you are eating. It works both ways; pick what you want to drink and there is food to match, or pick what you want to eat and there are excellent wines by the half glass, glass, carafe or bottle to enhance the food. They were packed last Saturday for DineLA, but quality and service were as good as ever.
Great Dine LA menu. All the options were delicious
My friend who was visiting from Seattle was particularly happy I chose Upstairs for our pre-Theater meal!
Went here for Restaurant week and had a great meal! The staff was excellent, from the host, server and bussers. The Food was amazing - I wish I could have ordered more food because I wanted to try a little bit of everything! The wine selection was good as well. But Beware of the $38 glass of Barbera!
Upstairs 2 is located above the Winehouse, one of the best wine stores in all of California so this was a wine and dine evening. The restaurant participated in Dine LA and we ordered from a special Dine LA menu. Three courses for $39, accompanied by the wine pairing at $25 for 3 healthy pours. We had cauliflower soup, salmon, short ribs, and sticky toffee pudding for dessert and all were prepared to perfection. Every seat in the restaurant was filled, but service was excellent throughout the evening and we never felt rushed or "moved along." We've ordered from the regular menu but it was a nice treat to have an excellent meal at a bargain price.
I have been to Upstairs 2 on many occasions. The food is innovative and very good. The service is excellent.
Great food and service. Saturday night get together with another couple. They loved the goose special. I had the steak and Parmesan fries - outstanding. My husband and daughter had the salmon. Huge portion and cooked to perfection but only so-so taste. We all shared the creme brûlée and chocolate bread pudding. Both delicious!
Love the new chef! And as always Marilyn makes the wine experience so special here! Love turning friends on to Upstairs 2 ! What a gem!
Frequent guest for the past 8 years. Seasonal menu and excellent prix fixe speacials all paired with a recommended wine. Menu is sorted by wine first then recommended dish; awesome for the casual wine drinker and great for the more experienced palate. The staff has worked together for a long time and service is a well oiled machine. Free parking in the rooftop. Fantastic!
