Arrogant, up themselves, bland food, hostess was aggressive and set the tone which continued thru the waiter service and the overall attention levels which were poor. Can’t recommend you avoid this place highly enough.

Great location and ambiance. We had great service except for the manager that tried to sway us to switch to a tequila that he liked because the brand we were drinking was out. The reposado of same brand was available and should have been offered.
Overall, we had great food and enjoyed our meal.

The prawns we amazing. The branzino was so flavorful as a must have. I recommend you ask them fillet the fish. The char grilled skirt steak was cooked to perfection. The duck wings had a nice kick and very meaty. Our waitress Megan was delightful and very attentive.

Dinner at Upland was outstanding - the pasta was so delicious. The very kind manager -Jorge- send our table free desserts because he did not have a the first 2 bottles of wine we initially wanted to get . I will definitely go back if I am visiting Miami again

Waiter was very confused with our wine order. There was not sommelier available at 8, which seemed strange.
Giving us our entries was thoughtful, but they need to train their staff better and be staffed up.

Waitperson was quite good. Food was very high quality - both ingredients and preparation. Wine list was
diverse with some nice choices. Only mild criticism was that my reservation was at 9:30pm and I didn't get seated until near 10pm.

Our favorite meal we had while in Miami! Highly recommend the beets, pappardelle ragu, and the trout. The trout had the most unique, complex flavor and was the best trout we had ever had. Service was wonderful and we felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door. Would definitely return if we travel back to Miami!

I wanted to like this restaurant but it didn’t work out . The brunch here is subpar and overpriced. The check was $150.00 for two people that ate eggs, pancakes, toast and two bottomless drinks. Take your money somewhere else with delicious dishes to try from. This place is a south beach trap with a good locale and overpriced , average food. Will not return or recommend.

We celebrated our second NYE at Upland Miami (the first was at Upland NYC) and we never leave disappointed. The food was fabulous and the service was even better.

They even hand out champagne, hats and noise makers before midnight.

Thanks for a wonderful kick off into 2019!

Upland is a very nice looking space with an adorable outdoor area that feels like being in a forest. The service is extremely good — we were seated right away, all of the food came quickly, and every single server and staff member was friendly and attentive.
We thought the food was great, although some dishes were a little too salty, eg the tuna tartare salad. Both pastas we tried (kale/sausage, pesto spaghetti) were nicely seasoned and very filling. The pizzas are delicious but a little small for the price. Overall this is a lovely place to dine in the SoFi and I hope it sticks around!

This was the first time (out of many visits) that the food was off. The pizza was burnt and my pasta was served cold. I am not one to complain but since Upland Opened in Miami it would always be a meal to look forward too. I will give it one more try on my next visit in February but this was disappointing especially since it used to be outstanding

We sat on the patio, which was lovely. The food was amazing - we had the avocado & falafel, the buccatini, the branzino, the skirt steak, the carrots and the zucchini. Everything was amazing. We shared with 3 people and it was plenty of food. Service was quick and attentive.

The food was outstanding. Branzino by far the best fish I have had in a long time. The vegetables are exquisitely prepared -the carrots with pumpkin seeds outrageously good! Charred broccoli was great and the salads also fantastic. We loved it.

Waiter mistakenly charged us $980. for a dinner for two (with no alcohol) and he wasn’t even apologetic! Then he failed to return my credit card and I had to go back to him to look for it! Again he wasn’t apologetic. Don’t know if it was intentional...
