What Insiders Are Saying
Universally appealing, consistently excellent, and one of our favorite places in all of NYC.
We were shown to a nice corner table and drinks service was prompt. But thereafter there were mistakes - we were sent the food sequentially rather than all together and were given the wrong bill. Server nice but dim. Food excellent.
Came for a business lunch with colleagues. We've been here before, and this experience was excellent as well. Three in our party had pizza, and all enjoyed. Mine was the kale&sausage - wow, excellent! Even after we finished, nobody rushed us out. Ambiance is great. Wouldn't change a thing.
Great service, lovely atmosphere, delicious food.
Recommend for any occasion!
Great food, service and ambiance.
Not happy with no changes policy. Brunch was mediocre
We often eat at Upland. The atmosphere is great and the food is good. It may be super busy with a long wait or really empty. We usually make a reservation because it's unpredictable.
Great restaurant and great vibes! Loved this place!
We had a lovely meal there. Everything was absolutely delicious. The address is Park Ave South, but the entrance is actually on 26th St.
best, business lunch spot in the neighborhood.
Dinner is great too.
Always a wonderful meal and dining experience. The slight over salting of the entrees was noted but not objected to. While the hard shiny wall and ceiling surfaces tend to reflect rather than diminish ambient noise, during the non dinner hours the room sound is tolerable. However, post work drinking and dining conversation makes it more noticeable than a excellent meal should endure. Still at the top of my list of places to go.
I was coming back for third or forth time. We were initially seated at a table I didn’t like. Because the restaurant was very busy, when I asked to switch tables, I was prepared to be met with at best ambivalence;however, we were moved immediately and with great grace and a spirit of accommodation—just simply with a great attitude towards good service. The food was excellent as usual.
but air con too strong, I was freezing during dinner
Disappointed with the food quality. Green gem salad had too much dressing - was sour. Cacio e pepe was mediocre. Skirt steak was way too salty and had to send it back. Overall food was pretty disappointing, especially for the price point. Nice ambience but I would not return here for dinner.
Everything was wonderful! The servers were on top of it and the food was absolutely delicious. Get the branzino to split and the cacio e pepe!!
Ambiance is beautiful, service is excellent, drinks are good, food is just OK.
Service was especially attentive. Food fab. Decor lovely. Enjoyed so much. We will be back.
Never, ever disappointed. We visit N.Y 4 to five times a year and go to Upland at least twice every trip. We now ask for our favorite server, Sarah.
We had a wonderful dinner here and the server was top notch and helped us with the great selections of food.
Really excellent food, great service. Only negative was the noise.
Chewy tough sinewy lamb, mostly inedible and dry hen of the woods, no flavour. Great gem salad tho
Birthday for wife
Amazing all around- not to be missed!
We ate at upland in March and our dinner was so outstanding we couldn’t wait to book a table on our next trip. Menu was totally different (changes all the time) and this time both of our entrees were mediocre. Shrimp mushy in shrimp and crispy rice. My husbands duck entree swamped in brown liquid must have been chefs night out.
If you go-order something else and don’t order the cheesecake either.
we went cuz we heard they have good burgers but apparently they only serve those at lunch 😕 So we changed gears and tried other things in the menu and it was decent i’d like to try the burgers tho...
Me and my husbands first time at Upland and we HAD to try the famous burger- it did not disappoint! The restaurant was beautiful and service was great. We will certainly go again next time we’re in town.
Great ambiance; tasty food; good service; a place one wants to go back to again and again.
Excellent food. We enjoyed every course.
Cioppino w Korean spices, mushroom, gem salad, duck wings/legs all excellent. Great presentations for each course.
Service was somewhat indifferent. Had troubles getting wait staff attention before and after food was served.
Beautiful room, great music.
On our second meal at Upland everything was as good our previous experience. Service was professional and unobtrusive, the vibe just energetic enough to be fun, but still we could engage in a pleasant conversation without raising our voices and disturbing others. The food was excellent, especially the hanger steak which was outstanding. The only quibbles were the salads which were soggy with too much dressing and the fact that several of the dishes we ordered were over salted.
Hands down one of the best burgers in NYC. Personal top 3. Their take on the in-n-out burger is unreal - especially with avocado as an added bonus. Slightly on the expensive end @ $24, but it also comes with a side of fries - well worth it! Highly recommend it!
Seated promptly when we arrived. Service was excellent like the food and reasonably priced wine. Good experience.
The restaurant has a nice design but the acoustics is terrible and noise doesn’t allow you a simple conversation
I had a great time and the salmon bowl was delightful.
Food was overall spicy and this was pretty much every dish! There was no indication on the menu that the dishes are all spiced... two out of five of us had to change our main course because it was too spicy...
WE were celebrating a Law School Graduation and had a GREAT time
Very efficient server but we were made to fee too rushed.
As we got there we wanted to order a flatbread with a cocktail, were told we could not, everything had to be ordered together.
A bit of a assembly line mentality, unlike the other Steven S restaurants
May be my favorite restaurant in NYC Excellent for special occasions, feels fancy but comfortable at the same time. The duck wings and the burger were to die for.
Great ambiance. Fabulous service and delicious food. Especially loved the mushroom appetizer and seafood soup.
Nice place and god food.
Loved everything about Upland with one exception....the hostesses at the front were quite rude and off putting. However, every other staff person was incredible!
