Fine seafood dining with impeccable service and creative presentation. – The Scene
Two separate areas--the oyster bar on one side, the main dining room on the other--have an earthy, warm atmosphere, perfect for a romantic dinner or drinks with the gang after work.

The Food
This is seafood at its best, but if you're a meat-lover, there's a smattering of game and steaks to choose from. Take a seat at the oyster bar for fresh, flown-in daily shellfish before you hit the dining room. For an appetizer, the generous tuna rolls are tantalizing: Thin slices of sesame-seed-encrusted seared tuna and raw sashimi-grade fish melts in your mouth. Hushpuppies filled with rock shrimp and crawfish are powerful, and the creamy lobster bisque is divine. Enticing entrees such as porcini-crusted grouper and sesame-grilled ahi tuna with soba noodles and soy ginger glaze are winners and plated beautifully.

User review by chelsea_louisa – The food is to die for and they even have these cooking classes where you get to meet some of the chefs. Children are deffinatley welcome, but the resturant has a more romantic setting.

A Favorite! – My husband and I have eaten here several times and I love it! The seafood is excellent - we always get the trio of appetizer - the calamari in particular is delicious - flavorful and not chewy. The fish is always perfectly cooked - not to done, not too raw. The decor is very cool - the ceiling is designed to look like you are sitting underwater. I think this is a great date place, but it is a lively date, not a quiet, romantic date. Like the one reviewer said, the restaurant is not big, but I thought it was "intimate". Lastly, the prices are pretty high for Charlotte. We live in NYC and we still think its a bit pricey - but worth every penny!

Great restaurant – Upstream is one of our favorite restaurants in CLT. Their sushi is the best in town and their oyster bar is hard to beat. We generally sit at the bar where the service is great and the cocktails thick. Their tuna tuna tuna served three ways is one of our favorites and shouldn't be missed. All of their sushi is amazingly fresh. They have original rolls among other known favorites and all the food is complemented by a great atmosphere. I'd wish they'd get rid of the TVs in the bar. No one watches them and it really detracts from the winning ambience.

No-Way! – Okay I read the reivews and ratings for this place and decided to go for my B-day, Well I must say I've never been more disappointed!!-First the size of the place is a "Joke" its nothing more than a mid-size room with a bunch of tables "CRAMMED" in and the noise level is outrageous! Secondly the prices for the food you recieve are "WAY" over blown. Take my advice do not go here if your hungry-YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED! my date was equally disappointed as well, If you want good seafood and a nice romantic setting do yourself a big favor and by-pass this place. I sincerely hope this isn't the best seafood restaurant Charlotte has to offer!
