The Uptown, also known in the area as Uptown Lounge, is a casual but classy restaurant and bar in the Upper East Side. The atmosphere is laid back and high energy, the food is comforting and the bar is always fully stocked. Stop into Uptown Lounge and dine on delectable American cuisine, while you enjoy a specialty cocktail, one of the creative beers on offer or a crisp glass of wine.
Uptown Lounge is the perfect place to bring a date, have a drink with co-workers or enjoy the evening with family and friends. Take advantage of the daily food and drink specials happening throughout the week.
We ate outside and food was good but glad not inside since it would have been to noisy.
The brunch deal here is fantastic. $16.95 for entree and two drinks, or add $10 for unlimited. The smoked salmon benedict was delicious. Our waitress was so friendly and attentive. We'll definitely be coming back! Sit outside if you can, as it gets very loud inside on weekends.
This restaurant is nothing out of the ordinary. They have great specials, good food, and is a quality time for getting together with neighborhood friends.
Great place for a larger party. The staff was very attentive and accommodating
Service was horrible. Food was average and prices were different than advertised online. Probably won't be returning.
We have lived in the neighborhood for many years but never found a good weekend brunch restaurant. It was either coffee-shop fare, not very good pub fare, or expensive fare. This place is perfect! The brunch price is very reasonable, but the biggest surprise is the food. Although it is more of a pub-type restaurant, the quality of the food is way above what one would expect from a pub/sports bar. We will definitely go back!!
We arrived when the restaurant opened but clearly before everyone was in place. We were seated at high tables which had no lighting for reading the menus so we moved to another area. Music and voices were loud, food and brunch prices were good. The coffee and in particular the decaf coffee was terrible. Servers were not attentive as most were chatting together loudly near the bar. We left without getting the birthday candle I requested by phone, the night before. We won't return.
Opentable should remove Uptown from their service. I made a reservation on opentable.com by visiting Uptown's website, and received a confirmation email. However, upon arrival (Sunday 11/9 at noon), the hostess claimed that there was no such reservation. She was rude and dismissive. After much back and forth and after seeing the email, she finally said, "Well you should always call also since the online reservations often don't come through." If Uptown is not receiving Opentable reservations, and then are rude when customers arrive and say they have an Opentable reservation, it reflects poorly on Opentable. The food and servers are great, but the hostess on this particular day was quite rude. First time there and will not be returning.
Expect to leave without a voice.... The food is really great and consistent. Stuffed chicken is delicious. Spinach ravioli nice and light. Nachos grande better than many Mexican restaurants. The servers are great and courteous, but sometimes take a long time to get back to your table. But it is really LOUD! Otherwise, we love it!
Great happy hour specials and best buffalo chicken fingers! I'm going back just for that!
