Crowd seemed to be a little more mature. Wasn’t by any means a cool or hip place to be.

The ambience and service were quite good. The veg soup was delicious. The entree (chicken and puff pastry) was rather bland and short on chicken.

My husband and I have been here several times in the last couple of months and it truly is one of the most consistently good places on the Bardstown Road Strip. The food was prepared perfectly - My salmon was tender and a generous portion, on a bed of cooked spinach that was neither over nor under-done and rice. My husband orders the beef tenderloin nearly every time and "rare" has always meant rare. The waitress was, as always, professional and attentive. Uptown has become one of our go-to restaurants when we are looking for predictably good food, good service, and an adult atmosphere.

Uptown Café has been a neighborhood staple of my family’s for many years!! The food is excellent, the service is always great and the pricing is very reasonable. Highly recommend, especially if you’re looking for a quiet, peaceful evening. Ambience is certainly an asset. Must give it a try!!

My friend and I enjoyed Uptown's dependable excellence on a recent week night. We started with a healthy pour of bourbon on the rocks. We tried soups: shrimp bisque and borscht, which was a special. The borscht was served hot and was delicious, with beef and chunks of tender beets. My friend liked the bisque as well; my impression was that it was creamy and delicately flavored. Then we split a chicken liver salad which was wonderful as usual. We were too full for dessert but enjoyed a cup of great coffee to finish. Service was professional: there when we needed someone and unobtrusive when we didn't.

The four of us had a very nice lunch and service very satisfactory.
We were chilly and we were accommodated by their adjusting
the temperature setting. We were not rushed and with it being
lunchtime the noise level was not a problem.

Very nice meal with friends. Loved the stuffed mushrooms. Only disappointment was they had run out of my friend’s favorite dessert.
