What Insiders Are Saying
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
the hospitality was excellent. we mentioned the special occasion and the staff showed us so much care and attention. the food was definitely sublime. as expected. definitely a memorable evening.
Wonderful, varied menu and great ambiance. Food presentation and quality was excellent. One of best meals this year in NYC.
Everything about Upland was outstanding. The food was artfully prepared and served. We had mostly vegetarian dishes— carrots, eggplant, tomatoes— and each was excellent. One member of our party had skirt steak and he was very pleased. We had an excellent Chianti Classico as well.
Amazing food and overall experience. Very accommodating. Thank you!
From start to finish my husband and I again have enjoyed this bright and consistent take on modern Italian food!
Fluke crudo style with key lime sauce ? Perfect for a warm August evening!
Our duck salad with many appetizing additions collaborated for a marvelous tasty perfectly combined plate.
The famous large deeply cooked hen of the wood mushroom was again a hit with us I hope it stays on the menu!
As always - it was wonderful!
One my favorite restaurants ever. The food is exceptional.
Food was delicious ! This was my second visit in the past month. However, service was rushed and uneven! Drinks remained empty, and we experienced a change in wait staff mid meal. Disappointed in this visit!
Every visit to Upland is superlative. The service is friends, the food is exquisite, and the ambiance is fun.
I love Upland. Their doughnuts are always incredible and are a nice sweet treat with any meal. The coffee here is always great and I love that they warm the milk so that your coffee doesn’t cool.
Excellent food, service and ambiance!
Everything was delicious especially the pasta cacio e pepe and pasta Vongole. Rice with shrimp was delicious. My friends enjoyed the skirt steak and salmon.
Amazing food at a very lively place! Shrimp & rice is a must try, one of the best things I’ve ever eaten!
Great food and wonderful service. We went for my wife’s birthday. and they remembered to bring dessert w candle. It was loud, which made conversation a bit difficult
Love Upland. Food is always good albeit a bit overpriced. I don’t mind the noisy atmosphere however the people should not be louder than the music. Waiter was just ok have had better service here before. Overall, a good meal and a good time.
Loud restaurant - buzz from conversations pinging off mostly wood decor - and probably unnecessary background music - and food (very fresh pasta with tasty sauces and ingredients). We recommend dumplings, pappardelle, and spaghhettini.
Absolutely smooth service and tip top delicious food.
Best Roast Chicken, best cioppino ever, their vegetable dishes are superb. Pizzas & Pasta excellent
This is really great restaurant that never leaves any diner unsatisfied or feeling gypped in any way .
Best Margarita pizza
We were disappointed that they no longer have their short rib dish or hamburger on their menu. Dinner was very average. Plenty of better restaurants around.
Food was good enough and the service was excellent but the restaurant was hot and noisy...and it wasn’t even full of diners. Sticking to brunch from now on.
I will preface this by saying I have eaten at this establishment in the past and this time was the last. Didn’t even acknowledge that it was our anniversary. Didn’t touch the table with menus or drinks for several minutes. Mushroom was overcooked and tasted of unchanged fryer oil, bread was cold in center, five lettuce caesar was inedible with the bitterness from the greens (the dressing could have tempered the bitterness), Cacio e Pepe (which I have had all over the world) was slightly over al dente and significantly over peppered (not in quantity but in size of actual pepper grind - I should not bite into full peppercorns!). Unfortunately the servers and perhaps even the kitchen are tired of selling the food that so many have come to love and maybe just eat in satisfaction yearning for yesteryear. This wasn’t resting on your laurels this was falling asleep at the wheel.
Our two starters were quite tasty: the hen of the woods mushroom and the heirloom tomato salad. Our next course was monkfish with wax beans & fingerling potatoes, which arrived with cold potatoes and doused with a low quality vinegar. This was completely inedible (the vinegar SO overwhelming) and we asked to have the same dish prepared with hot potatoes (or at least warm) and a much lighter hand with the vinegar. The next attempt had slightly warmer potatoes but it was now clear that the potatoes had been prepared far in advance (you know the texture potatoes get in that situation), and the vinegar, while slightly less in volume, was the same poor quality. Although my husband & I were sharing this one main dish, we could not finish it. The restaurant did not charge us for this dish, fortunately. Our server, who started out so charming, did not speak to us after we sent the main dish back. We did not order dessert. I did tip the server 20% including the amount for the monkfish dish, since it wasn’t his fault...although he should have been more professional about the situation.
Recommend 100 %
We will be back 😍
The crispy duck wings.
It was great.
My party enjoyed the food for the most part, but thought that portions were too large. Weakest link was the pasta with chicken liver sauce, but it was good.
Excellent atmosphere, good food, did brunch there has a buzzy feel but can be a little bit loud.
Everyone enjoyed their meals...excellent!
So disappointed with our experience at this supposedly great restaurant. They are unable to accommodate food allergies. I am allergic to garlic and informed this to the waiter and to convey this to the chef. After I was told that my food selection was not possible I asked the waiter to ask the chef what dishes I could have. After talking to the chef, he told me that my only choice was to have the green salad or fluke crudo for appetizer and the bucatini pasta for entree. We were shocked that at a pricey restaurant like this, the chef was not able to accommodate anything else. I guess all the food is premade or did not want to be bothered. Obviously this ruined the culinary experience we were hoping for my birthday.
Incredible food. You must order the mushroom as a starter and steak as your main!
Air conditioning wasn’t working. Food was extremely salty.
Always an amazing meal. Service is very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Everything was great. The AC was broken so was very hot. I wish they would have alerted us to that before we came. It became way too hot to enjoy our delicious meal!!
Great brunch menu and excellent service.
Very popular place and they seated us quickly even though we were early for our reservation.
Great spot, very good food, wine list on the pricey side, overall recommendable...
Amazing experience. Great food and atmosphere.
The only disappointment was the ac was not working great and it was a very hot and humid night .
