Went on a Sunday at 830. It was our last night in South Beach and we were excited to try Upland. When we arrived, there was barely anyone in the restaurant and for south beach we were so surprised. We sat at the chef counter table, which would have been fun if it was busy.

We started with the Prawns, which were four for $27. When they arrived the top two were large and the bottom two were small. Nothing like Prawns. They had great flavor, but we were disappointed by the size.

Next we ordered the branzino for two and potatoes. The staff complimentary gave us broccoli which was very nice. The fish was yummy, but nothing to go back and get.

If it would have been busy and lively we would maybe had a better dinner, but with no one there and even the kitchen doing inventory during our dinner we were disappointed.

The service was very typical South Beach Service. They sat us at a dirty table and then instead of taking us to another, clean table, had us sit down and cleaned the table while we were seated. I had to ask our server what her name was. The food was good. The wine was very pricey.

This was mostly a miss for us. We only had items from the happy hour menu, but they just didn't really live up to what we expected. We ordered squash blossoms (no squash, just cheese, we couldn't figure it out), but it was tasted and not eaten. The burger was my favorite, but again, it just wasn't exceptional. Really nice ambiance and liked the server. The happy hour drinks were solid. Maybe the food on the regular menu is better or our expectations were too high?

There was no atmosphere. Our booking on memorial Monday was for 9 pm. We didn’t know they were closing at 10. It felt very rushed and if we had known in advance we would not have booked. At 10 there were only 2 other people in the restaurant which made for a really quiet atmosphere and not what we were expecting

You do not get what you pay for at Upland. Expectation was top-notch service, exciting food, and prime location. All you get here is location. To our waiter's credit, it was not her fault that we could not hear her speak over the volume of the music. Wine bottle service was a bummer - at this price point, a sommelier should approach the table and help make a suggestion. The only outstanding item we tried was the side of carrots. Hamachi had flavor, but lacked in portion size. Duck wings and steak entree were mediocre. Salmon entree was beautiful in presentation but lackluster in flavor. We dipped everything in the sauce that came with the carrot side dish since it was the most flavorful item on the table. We will not return, and we will not recommend. For a $300 dinner in the city, there are several better options.

Food was very good. It was the service that impacted our experience. Our server was more interested in serving the couple at an adjacent table and we had to ask to have dishes removed, a dessert menu, and our check. It took 20+ minutes with only 2 people in front of us to get our car from the valet service. Although the valet is not managed by the restaurant, it is right outside the door and the poor service left a bad impression on those waiting to get their cars.

Overall food was good, some dishes better than others. Pasta seemed to lack flavor except for the lobster dish. A little too pricey for ambience and portion size. Outrageous pricing for glass of wine of which we had multiple and should have been advised to order by the bottle

Fabulous restaurant in South Beach - away from the maddening crowds near Ocean/Collins in the teens! Great service, excellent food - nice bar scene. Had been to Upland here in NYC on Park Avenue South and loved it. Upland Miami is even better! Cacio e Pepe to die for! Grilled prawns were amazing!
