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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
