Excellent food and friendly staff! Great for a first timer.
We had a great meal at Upland. Split multiple dishes including the bronzino for 2, skirt steak, wings, pasta, and salads and dessert. All were very good. Cocktails were delicious. Service was incredibly patient before ordering, and incredibly attentive during our meal. Upland has Incredible acoustics; Even thought the the restaurant noise volume was more than energetic, sitting at our booth the four of us were able to converse like we were in a private room. The only downside was the restaurant being a little pricey, more than $80/person, splitting a salad, one round of cocktails, an appetizer, a pasta, 3 entrees, and 1 dessert among 4 people.
Brunch with my sister - good food, EXCELLENT waiter :).
First time there for brunch. Loved the ambiance and decor, but the food was disappointing. The toast was burnt on the edges and the sausage was overcooked. The spinach in the omelette was overcooked beyond recognition. Not sure if I'll go back.
Our brunch was amazing, and the staff was fantastic and attentive. We will definitely be back in the near future!
Need more vegan options. But wonderful.
Went there for brunch and the pastry basket was absolutely delicious! The portions were very hearty and the food was quite good! The drinks and food were a little pricey, but the atmosphere was amazing— perfect for a friend’s birthday brunch. The service was good too. I would come back again.
Incredible brunch -- though they bloody mary was less than thrilling, the eggs made up for it.
Melt in your mouth skirt steak with just the right amount of char. Coffee was rich, smooth and chocolatey. I have to say I was surprised by their lackluster Bloody Mary - standard brunch staple and yet completely boring and underwhelming. oh - and DO NOT SKIP the The DONUTS -- wow -- best donut I've ever eaten in my life!
The front desk service was exceptional - the server equally so.
Will be back again - next time the Souffle!
Great place both in food and service - excellent atmosphere
Love the fun, young ambience; friendly and polite service: and delicious, innovative food.
Good food but not overwhelming. The burger tasted like a big mac. Thats not a bad thing, I love big macs. But for $20 I expected to be amazed. Same with the duck wings. If I'm paying $6.66 for one wing (they are 3 for $20) I expect to be blown away.
This was my first visit to Upland, but certainly not my last! The food was amazing as was the service - I can recommend Upland without any hesitation at all!
Great food, totally get the hype. The whole mushroom and bucatini was every bit as good as everyone says they are. However the food took a while to get out between courses. So slow that we rushed out and got dessert somewhere else as it took so long.
Went for sunday brunch. Delicious pancakes, amazing bacon, interesting greek omelet.
Extremely over rated. Not sure why anyone dines here unless being seen is the your motivation.
Mushroom appetizer was over cooked and obviously had been cooked long before it was served. Remaining dishes were fair at best. We were charged a corkage for a bottle we didn’t bring with us. Will not return.
We enjoyed our dinner. Large portions and tasty food. The one thing i did not enjoy was the order of chicken came with the claw. Not very appetizing to say the least.
The food is always excellent, and the service is absolutely stellar. We got many things, including the spinach souffle, which was a little divisive. :) But everything else was an absolute win.
The pastry basket is a must! Order one to share or all to yourself! :-)
It was my birthday, receptionist very unwelcoming and unfriendly, waiter seemed clueless.
Love everything about Upland!
Food was not appealing, from the appetizer to the main was a lack of balance , salmon was over cook , dry and the green were uneatable( they were the green parts of carrots ). The serving was poor at least, sommelier was arrogant and looks like she was disappointed we pick a bottle of only 82 dollar.
We would never come back.
Love this place! Unique offerings in a cozy atmosphere.
After dining in Miami upland a few times was keen to try New York Upland . Was just as good duck wings to die for !
Everything is always excellent at Upland!
Excellent service and sommelier. Outstanding food.
Consistently delicious. We bring all of our guests for the branzino for two!
Not sure what happened, but the food was actually pretty inedible. Definitely striking it off the list! Pretty space, but food was terrible and actually made us feel sick for the next day too.
Food tasted horrible
We came to Upland for a “celebrate success” lunch for my team. We all ordered the burger, and it was the best I’ve ever had! One of my colleagues is having a birthday this weekend, and the staff remembered my advance request to put a candle in the piece of chocolate cake we ordered. The service was lovely - helpful and attentive, but not intrusive. Can’t wait to return!
Huge fan of Upland: May be my favorite restaurant in the city. Was disappointed with the service, and the food. Waitress was not very responsive and it felt like whenever we needed something we constantly had to wait. Crispy mushroom and Cacio el Pepe were great as always. The Caesar salad was a little bitter, do not remember that normally being the case.
The clam pizza was bad ended up throwing it out when I was home (took it to go because other participant in the meal had to leave).
exceptional quality and taste of food at mid level prices
This was our first time visiting based on a recommendation from friends. Now we will recommend to all our friends. It was our 30th anniversary and we could not have picked a better place to celebrate. This is definitely on our regular restaurant list when in New York.
Out waiter was fabulous. Several people at the table had food allergies and he handled it exceptionally well.
Good food. Nice place. A little overpriced, but worth it. Big space.
Had dinner there last night. Room in gorgeous. Daughter ordered the duck. It was good. I had the lamb and sad to say the worst dishl I have ever had. I actually spit out a piece of meat. It was charred and bitter. The server had come by a few seconds after serving our meal asking how everything is. At that point I had only had a bit of the vegetables so said great but man oh man my daughter couldn't even swallow the bite I asked her to try. The bread is delicious. We shared the duck. The bus person came by. Asked if we were done. I said yes that was terrible nodding to my full plate. She just gathered up the dishes and left. The server came by asked about dessert. Pfffft no thanks. Brought our bill. Never asked again how everything was so we just got the hell outta there with a very bad taste in my mouth. Pizza looked good at the table next to us. We won't be back.
Food and service were superb! I'm still thinking about the sausage kale pizza and the creme fraiche icecream! OMG!!!! We will definitely be going back.
was served raw chicken
This restaurant always rushes you out...even when they aren't that busy. The waiters are clearly trained to take your order as fast as they can and continue to ask until they get it. Then your food comes so quickly...one course after the next. Next thing you know, the nice dinner you were supposed to have for your birthday or to catch up with friends, lasted all of 45 minutes. When I asked the waitress to please not rush our meal after our first course, she waited about 10 minutes to bring out my pizza which must have been waiting for me since they cleared my salad because it came to me hot but extremely chewy (must have been reheated). I have had the same experience every time I have eaten at this restaurant... not a fan of being treated that way when you are paying for a nice dinner.
We ordered the cheeseburgers medium rare and they arrived well done. My dining companion summed it up best: the burger meat tastes like McDonalds’. And yet they were $24 each
I wasn’t expecting more than pizza and pasta-there is so much more. The kitchen uses the freshest ingredients and seasons the food well. Our super server made great food recommendations. Upland it someplace to go when you need a hug-comfort food with a fresh take.
