    Amazing food with GREAT ambiance. We had sushi with caviar and gold leaf. That was so tasty. We also had the Wagyu , even more tasty!! For dinner the branzino and NY strip. This was an early Father’s Day for my Dad. It’s a must try with an ever changing menu to keep us coming back.

    The ambiance was great! We were able to sit, and visit, and hear each other! The food was beautiful and delicious. Everything fresh. I wish I had known omakase had to be ordered in advance, but all the reason to return and try. We had a variety of foods on the table and all spectacular.

    great food and excellent service. When we first arived, the music was too loud to hear our waiter, but that was corrected immediately when we asked. My wife had deviled eggs and sole, I had a roll and scallops. Tony, our server, did a fine job deboning the sole and presenting it, which is not an easy task to accomplish. He was able to help us select the appropriate wine, and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. We plan on coming back soon.

    The vibes and food were great! Service was a little slow and you have to order your food all at once. Portions are smaller but taste was impeccable! Cocktails were also really well made. I'd recommend for a special event.

    This is the one restaurant in San Antonio that consistently has excellent service! We were seated immediately and our waitress appeared momentarily with a pleasant greeting and delivered timely and professional service all evening. As usual, the Dover Sole was the best we’ve ever had in San Antonio, prepared table side. It made our birthday dinner a real treat!

    Went to upscale for the omakase experience. We were skeptical from the beginning only because I hadn’t found any reviews talking about the omakase experience. But decided to try it out since the reviews for their regular menu were impressive. Our experience with the food was just ok. Some of the dishes were good some were not. The presentation of each course was beautiful however it was lacking flavor. It’s a beautiful restaurant and it was very disappointing that they have their omakase guests in a tiny corner next to the wall. We asked if we could move to an actual table rather than sitting at the bar facing the sushi chef and they were able to accommodate. Service was excellent. The wine they recommended was great. Both our waiter and manage were very attentive and open to our feedback. Not sure if I’d ever go back to check out their regular menu. Overall, the ambiance is nice but overpriced for the quality of the food.

    Food was okay but not worth the money. Lobster was over cooked and chewy, my friend barely ate it. The ac was either out or they could not get it to work. It was so hot inside people were going outside for air. I was actually behind the thermostat and it was set at 84… it was 85 outside. I would go back to give it another try but I think for the food and what it is, it’s a little over priced for San antonio.

    We (my wife and two kids) came to Up Scale and had a phenomenal experience! The food was amazing and the service was great. However, something truly special happened. My daughter (9 y/o) became amazed by the bartender (Austin) when he was mixing drinks. She asked to sit at the bar to watch him. Austin then decided to treat her like one of his special VIP customers and made a one-of-a-kind drink (non-alcoholic of course). My son (7 y/o) decided to get in on this and Austin again went above and beyond and made him a one-of-a-kind drink! If you want to eat some great food and experience beyond reproach service, go to Up Scale. Ask Austin for the Green Monster (my son’s special drink) or a Tropical Sunshine (my daughter’s drink)…he can make them adult friendly as well!!!!

    Do not let the menu intimidate you on your first visit. Let the waiters tell you about the family style option that helps your party experience a little bit of the cuisine while you sit back an let them bring you your appetizer, salad, main entrees, sides and pick one of the three desserts. Great ambiance and dining in style.

    This was our first time at Up Scale and it has been on our list since before it even opened. We were not even remotely disappointed with the experience! The food was delicious, well-presented, & did I mention DELICIOUS?? Our service was great from start to finish! A unique mix of fine dining but inclusive and fun. Our server was knowledgeable, gave awesome recommendations, & we were never short on water/drinks. Lastly…the place is a vibeeee! The design, ambiance, & vibe all combine for an incredible atmosphere to be in! San Antonio is lucky to have a place like this!
