What Insiders Are Saying
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
Albacore tuna crudo was terrible - way too much parsley. The pizza was soggy and not enjoyable.
Great lunch spot! Not on loud for business meeting. The food is exceptional and the service was spot on!
The hostess was pretty rude when we first got there. Not welcoming at all especially for our first time going there. We were a party of three waiting for one more who was almost there and we asked if we could sit and order drinks while we wait. Our table was ready but she made a huge stink about it before finally letting us sit. The food was amazing and our waitress was very informed about the menu. She did have a hard time telling us what the most popular items were and ending up basically saying that everything on the menu was good. Overall the atmosphere was lovely and the food was delicious.
Ambiance and personality of the space was great. Everything we ordered was delicious. Service was attentive yet not overbearing. Would definitely go again!
I was looking forward to our reservations for over 2 weeks, and I do have to say, it was WELL worth the wait. Our server was so delightful, gave great recommendations, and was very attentive to our needs of wine. I appreciated the ambiance of the restaurant too! The seating was amazing, not too close to one another and the upholstery was very comfortable. We spent close to 3 hours having fun and picking different things on the menu. Highly recommend for a date night!!
The food is spectacular and the service is prompt. The only problem is that it's always crowded and noisy. But I continue to go back there because it's so damn good.
Can’t go wrong here!
Food was very good. Nice decore and ambiance Despite being busy they did not rush us.
I’ve been to many Starr restaurants and Philly and decided to stop by while in NY. Unfortunately this did not live up to my prior great experiences. Had to wait almost ten minutes for the waiter to give us water, the food was lackluster, and the wine came after I was done with my dinner. Definitely disappointing and not worth the prices.
We love everything about Upland. However, the portions are simply too big. They really need to scale back. Everything is so delicious.
This is a fine restaurant with a diversity of well prepared food and service with a smile. I highly recommend for dates , family or business lunches and dinners .
I am still thinking of the delicious meal that I had a few days ago at Upland, what a wonderful place! Loved it!
Food was very good. Ambiance not too stuffy. I recommend the sausage kale pizza.
Great looking place, open, effective lighting, and appealing Saturday brunch buzz. Place was packed, but we were shown to our table without delay. Service was excellent, though wait for 1st course flatbread a little lengthy. Reasonable prices, interesting and accessible menu. Would definitely return and would recommend highly.
Upland continues to set the bar for brunch. All 4 of us thoroughly enjoyed our dishes and can’t wait to return.
Great service from Sophy; good beverages and phenomenal LaFrieda burger. Sssoooo noisy though.
Very disappointed in the food and service
I had visited before and enjoyed it
I wanted to go back again but was not impressed
Food was fair, expensive and service was inconsistent
The food was no where near the quality that I would expect of a Michelin star restaurant. All dishes were grossly over seasoned to the point that you could barely taste the what was under it.
One of my favorite spots. Especially for lunch bc the burger isn’t on the dinner menu. This place is always consistent, aesthetically beautiful, service is always on point. Must haves - crispy duck wings, sasauge and kale pizza, gem salad and or Caesar, bucatini, and the burger!
This is a trendy place to eat what is essentially overpriced bar food.
Except for being seated in the ‘tourist section’ near the door on a cold wintry day, lovely place to land after just arriving to NYC by train. Nice that we could easily check our small overnight bags with our coats. Great service, charming decor, delicious fresh straight forward menu, can’t wait to go back
Comfy but special. All dishes were simple and the flavors of each component came through
Waiter could not have been more rude. In addition, the manager barely made an apology for the waiter’s behavior. Not to mention the food, which was ok at best.
Great vibe, great venue. Energic staff, professional. Food supurb.
Great food, great service. Smoked duck was amazing, pasta done perfect, sauces outstanding.
We had a great experience. We were seated right away at a great table! We were there on late side of brunch but the menu incorporated both breakfast and lunch items. It was warm and cozy with the perfect amount of activity. The kale pizza was incredible.
I had a great experience at Upland. I found our waiter to be slightly pretentious (eg. when you ask for hashbrowns on the side, don't say "we don't have hashbrowns," instead say "did you mean the side of potatoes?" and i also would prefer they seat incomplete parties. we would have ordered drinks at our seats and given our waiter more $ instead of being uncomfortable at a crowded bar not ordering drinks on principle. Otherwise, DELICIOUS food. I'll be back.
We wanted to try a weekend brunch, the place was completely full, the people were professional and friendly enough and the food was very good. I loved the apple cinnamon desert
My husband and I went to Upland for a date night. Service was great, food was delicious. We ordered the Cesar, Tuna Crudo, Lamb and Scallops and loved all of it! So yummy. I would definitely recommend Upland for a date night!
Nice atmosphere, good service . I ordered the porchetta sandwich which was very tough and fatty. Others in my party really enjoyed their choices . Server was very efficient and courteous.
The food was tasty enough and our waitress was very nice. Sadly, the kitchen seems to struggle getting the food out on time. We ended up canceling our last dish as it took too long to arrive and I ate all the bread waiting for it. I don't think we will return.
Wonderful birthday dinner! We had a fabulous server and sommelier too. Every suggestion was terrific. Their signature ciappino was delicious and authentic We will definitely return.
Always great. We eat there often and are never disappointed. The Gem salad is one of our favorites.
I thought the salmon entree was noticeably small portion. Also the wine by the glass special was a noticeably small pour.
I am a repeat guest at upland. Perhaps this was an aberration.
This place is awesome. Don't miss out on the estrella pasta or the five lettuce caesar salad. Service was a little awkward at times but certainly didn't take away from a 5 star dining experience.
I took my husband for his birthday - it was excellent. The service was perfection.
Very nice selection of entrees for brunch and noise level that allows you to hear your friends. Overall every time I have been here it has been a pleasant experience with very good service.
Food was good and the salad was fresh.
The Margarita pizza was perfect and the salad had fresh basil. The bread was very tasty.
Rushed meal service, otherwise great.
