What Insiders Are Saying
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
Two of our dishes were very salty. The pasta with chicken livers so salty we had to send back. The Caesar salad was salty too and did not resemble a Caesar as one knows it. Server should have mentioned this. Service was slow but respectful .Our concerns were addressed in professional way. The chocolate cake was terrible, cold, reminding one of something storebought.
Used to be good. Food not so good at Brunch. Never been to brunch here. Dinner has always been good. Chef is super talented but maybe not at the wheel at brunch
Service was extremely rude. The waitress was very unprofessional.
Waiter disappeared- we asked for coffee as we were being seated- took 30 minutes to be served. When brunch was served they brought the food for only four of five diners. Had to call the waiter over to check on the missing food. He was oblivious. It was either not ordered or taken by another server. No attempt to indicate what happened.The waiter then disappeared again and had to ask the hostess for our check.
We had a nice birthday dinner at Upland. The food was great. I thought they might make the birthday celebration a little more special, not just bring the dessert over with a candle and not even say happy birthday, but we had a nice time non the less. I will say that the restaurant was freezing, especially at the bar since it is close to the front door.
Great food, excellent service!
In the neighborhood for a charity event at Irving plaza and could’t miss the chance to try Obama’s favorite restaurant
This place remains epic! Great everything! Always a great time!
Great place! The service was excellent and the skirt steak was perfect!
Great vibe and delicious food. Everything you want in a fun place to grab a drink and share food.
Everything we ordered was not good...the drinks too sweet... duck wings too spicy, couldn’t eat them...liver pasta was disgusting, tasted like raw liver without any kind of flavor...scallops tasted raw and too tangeriny. Anyway, this is second time I’m writing a review but we honestly didn’t enjoy anything but desert
Consistently great, creative, delicious menu, lovely ambience/atmosphere and service.
We had the duck and the pappardelle and both dishes were amazing.
I also really enjoyed the beef tartare with farrow on top. Delicious!
Food was incredible! Highly recommend the duck wings and the Pappardella.
It was date night and this was PERFECT. The Branzino for Two was amazing and we had Brussels sprouts to start, and they were so well prepared. This restaurant was the whole package: beautiful ambiance, exceptional service, top-quality food and beverages.
Upland is great - wonderful food, really great service , fabulous bottle of wine recommended by the waitstaff. The ambience is very nice- sophisticated but not fussy. I will be back.
First time at Upland but won’t be our last. Loved the comfortable yet elegant ambiance of the restaurant and the food, wine list and service were exceptional! Also appreciated that we were actually able to have a nice conversation amongst the 6 folks at our table.
Awesome and well done!
Amazing cacio Pepe and great ambience! Food was all really fresh and delicious
don't understand the hype - food mediocre; waitstaff seemed overly stressed; noise level unnecessarily over the top and this was just for brunch.
The food was wonderful although the portions are large. Our waitperson, Courtney was delightful.
The noise level was positively deafening and overwhelming. If you are under the age of 35, fagedaboutit! The setting is very nice, the seating and tables were comfortable and spacious and the food and service were quite good, but not great; and, it ain't cheap. If you have to go, make sure it's after 10:30pm, if not a bit later. I guess this is the price of success.
Everything about our experience was wonderful. Our incredible server set the tone for our meal with his attentive yet restrained service. He made great recommendations for the menu and we enjoyed every last thing we consumed. From the delicious duck wings and crudo, to the pizza and exceptional pasta I wouldn't have changed a thing about our experience at Upland.
Fish so salty could not eat
Order salad and pizza save money
The food is creative and delicious. The ambiance is warm and inviting.
Great location, directly across the street from where we were staying at the Hotel Giraffe. The ambiance was great, very warm and friendly, along with the staff. Now for the food. The bread was very salty but tasty, this was followed by a salty and vinegar heavy salad. My salmon was okay, a little crusty. My husband ordered the mushroom appetizer that was large and intimidating. He returned it and to the restaurants credit, we were not charged. Okay but not a perfect meal.
The love of my life accompanied me on this date which made this experience perfect ❤️ But if you will as constructive criticism I’d just like to say the service was a tad bit slow... we started with a margarita pizza ... maybe the waitress thought that was all we were having although my date said we’d have the margarita to start... she returned at which point my date ordered a coke ....I want to say we waited about forty min for the food definitely more than thirty min ....my meal was delicious chicken senat I believe with Brussel sprouts. My date had potatoes covered in a dill sauce that he didn’t love i on the other hand enjoyed them and a tasty steak for his main that I found a bit rough but tasty ... a different gentleman replaced the female waitress at some point btw both very friendly and professional. Option to check a coat was nice I declined my date had his checked . Side note Upland was nicely lit and cozy spaceous seating . Overall I’m very happy with the experience . Hope this helps
Excellent overall! Loved the ambiance- very handsome space, and a perfect place to celebrate my birthday. The food was all delicious, and we were spoilt with extras, compliments of the chef. The service was professional, personable, and very pleasant. 5 stars all-around!
If you can’t have a good time here you have some issues !
The food is uniformly excellent, the vibe great, the noise level low but not dead, and the service is always attentive and knowing.
The duck wings. Oh man.
The mushroom if they have it. What.
The cacio. Seriously.
You can’t go wrong here. Enjoy !
The service was fantastic! We can’t wait to go back again.
Amazing, as always
Really great place! Simple yet delicious menu, great ingredients, good value for money. Wonderful atmosphere.
Food was so salty. Meat was totally burnt!
Where did usual chef go?
Is this place has under new management?
This was my first visit to Upland. Great food and attentive service. Outstanding burger! Just a tad loud.
Great brunch. Huge meal for the day. Attentive service. Neat space - not crowded at all. Fresh doughnuts were a hit.
Great food and service!
Great food, excellent service and amazing atmosphere
Absolutely fabulous !
Perfect size helpings and awesome flavors. My Cacio e Pepe was just what I needed for a rainy day lunch, and the boyfriend's skirt steak was sublimely charred on the outside, and a perfect medium rare on the inside. An unexpectedly flavored Pine liquor driven cocktail and cookie basket big enough to take home were icing on the cake. Thanks for a great lunch, Upland!
Welcoming with great service and delicious food. We lingered for hours and never felt we were being pushed out. A wonderful afternoon!
