What Insiders Are Saying
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
Love everything about Upland!
Lovely birthday celebration with my fiance. We sat at the lively, yet spacious bar, sipping wine prior to dinner. The hostess led us to our table promptly in keeping with our reservation. The wait sfaff was friendly, helpful, and attentive. Each dish was succulent and flavorful, in addition, the portions were more than ample. We were surprised by a delicious scoop of homemade ice cream with a lit candle. It was a truly memorable evening!
Nice restaurant-food and ambiance
Outstanding night at Upland. Pizza was great. The steak tartare had the most fabulous crunch and texture. Cioppino was a total surprise hit.
Was really great!!
Everything was delicious!!
Fantastic ambiance. The lamb shoulder and Brussels sprouts were incredible. Would dine again.
Amazing - will be back
Food at lunch was rather underwhelming and felt overpriced. Most of the dishes were heavily salted which made it difficult to enjoy the taste. We had 2 pasta and burger, but none of them really was memorable. Overall we had high hopes for Upland, but came away dissapointed...
Love the restaurant but the table was not suitable for 7 pax.
Upland is always a treat. Very good and friendly service and the food
is wonderful. The physical space is so fresh and airy-looking. Fun!
Frequent visitor to Upland and it never disappoints. Great place in all respects.
This place never disappoints. They are doing it all right, from the greeting at the door to the service and then the amazing food, you cannot help but leave happy.
The food is excellent and service is amazing. Quickly becoming one of the favorite places to eat in the city
The two young ladies that we encountered at the hostess podium upon arrival were less than friendly. Otherwise the wait staff and food were excellent. We will be back though- despite the grumpy hostesses.
Dinner with my parents was fantastic. The staff took their time to filet the roasted branzino we ordered and it was well worth the wait. Thanks for a great time!
Everything at Upland was great except for the noise level. It was simply deafening. All the surfaces are hard and reflect the sound. Everyone has to scream to be heard over the background noise. My wife's throat was sore the next morning from her having to shout. There is a simple engineering fix. The decibel level reading from my iPhone app read 95 db. Come on, Upland, do something to preserve the hearing of your customers. It won't cost much.
It’s been a great lunch with my girls friends, we shared the falafels (crispy outside and delicious), a margherita and a cacio e Pepe (perfectly al dente and well balanced). Then a wonderful espresso macchiato, cookies basket and cheesecake really tasty. The service was attentive and nice. I will for sure come back
One of my favorite restaurants in NYC. The food is exceptional from a wonderful menu. The staff is friendly and professional. It’s a happy, lively space. Can’t wait to return
Brunch with a girlfriend on a Sunday on our way to a play. Enjoyed the simple menu and excellent service.
Great food and ambiance! We arrive early for our reservation and were seated almost right away.
Upland is great for group dinners (3 or more people). You can't go wrong here.
Fantastic experience! The food was top notch; portions were generous and shareable. We could actually enjoy a conversation without shouting. Would absolutely go back!!
Great restaurant with cool decor and varied menu. The brunch salmon dish with brown rice was tasty, but the salmon was undercooked, similar to a smoked salmon texture with only light searing on the surface.
From the atmosphere, the service and the food - everything was fantastic!
My son and I celebrated at Upland and had an amazing time. The cocktails were amazing, food was delicious and a shout out to our server who was so great.
The Fried Chicken Sandwich with avocado mash was excellent for lunch. Very tasty!
The staff was professional, courteous and responsive. I appreciated their well-groomed appearances, from host- to wait staff.
It gets a bit too loud in there for a business lunch.
Fabulous service, fabulous food. Service was very good though I would like to see the hosts being friendlier and smiling a little surly. The noise level is quite high.
It was a fun night with a good vibe going. The food was dead on delicious. Waitress & hostesses were very nice. Sometimes the staff can be unfriendly or unpleasant here. The bartender had a attitude and was quite sarcastic I was surprised they were completely out of Anjou tequila
My go-to for lunch meetings. Always great! Upscale yet comfortable. Nice lunch menu. Service never disappoints.
We were so pleased with the restaurant we plan to return with more family.
Food and drinks always top notch. This time we felt rushed, dinner was served within an hour of arriving at the restaurant. We had ordered appetizers etc.
made a reservation but still had to wait like 20 mins ... was clear that no table was set aside for us
portions are TINY
Loved our breakfast here. Comfortable restaurant, energetic atmosphere. Tortilla and eggs was great and we loved the sprouts on the chicken sandwich. My opinion, you should eat here.
We felt very rushed as they were trying to turn the table over. Otherwise, enjoyed the food and ambience!
This place was cute but there is so much good food in the area this would not be my first choice.
Upland is always a stellar experience and food is phenomenal as usual!!
creative cuisine served in a well designed space.......professional and convivial staff
all contributed with a unique and delicious lunch
looking forward to my next visit
I had to make the dinner reservation weeks in advance...and now i understand why. Food was excellent. We tried the caesar salad -- how different could a salad be...very different and possibly the most delicious dressing i've ever had. We also tried the crispy mushroom, very good, the pappardelle and the scallops. Everything was superb.
