Excellant Dinner Party – My brother's 40th birthday dinner was beyond words. Tremendous gratitude to the staff and manager. Our meals were excellent, the room was brilliant, and our expectations were exceeded. My mum and I planned this dinner party from the UK , it was made with such ease and delight. The staff were a treat, the food remarkable, and the drinks as good as any pub across the pond.
Many thanks and a sincere appreciation for the quality of hospitality experienced at The Uptown Restaurant & Lounge, NYC
Finally! – I am by far no foodie (kind of find them annoying), but I highly recommend the appetizers/pizzas at Uptown. I haven't eaten in the dining room or tried any of the entrees. However, for an after work snack and a beer, Uptown is my favorite spot. Love the new craft beer selection, solid draft line-up, and an interesting drink menus. Bartenders are really cool and not stingy on a buy back here and there. They have a great band on Mondays with $4 beers. They must be doing something right, the place is always busy.
The Best Place on The Upper East Side – My colleagues and I (from Mt. Sinai Hospital) have our monthly department dinner at Uptown restaurant. This is one of the most relaxed, cool, and upbeat places in the area. Our experience at Uptown is always positive and I never have any doubts where to go when we are taking visiting doctors or speakers out. When available, the Skylight Room is a great complement to any evening. They have an extensive craft beer selection (which I love) and creative drink menu. We made the mistake of having our department dinner at the “steak house” down the street and were very disappointed. Won’t do that again. I highly suggest this venue and will continue to patronage them. When planning a dinner party or special night out, the managers (Daniel or Eric) will make sure you are well taken care of.
Best Birthday Party – I hosted my husband's 35th birthday party at The Uptown Lounge this past weekend. I worked with Eric and Dan; they were delightful to deal with. Our bartender, Kellyn, did a fantastic job. The main bar and dining room was packed, however we received great service from the staff and the undivided attention of the managers. The appetizers and pasta station were delicious. The price was reasonable, actually I would have paid more knowing what I know now. I highly recommend Uptown for parties or just a fun night out. Many Thanks!!
used to be better – i have been here for just drinks as well as sitting down for lunch. the bar experience was much better, though their drinks are overpriced. for lunch, got a simple cobb salad and food was not very fresh or tasty. its great for the neighborhood, but i dont think i'd go back.
disappointing – Let me start by saying that I WANT to like this place. The atmosphere is great, drinks are strong and tasty, and it fills a niche in a neighborhood dominated by dives and sports bars. However, the abominable service makes Uptown Lounge nearly impossible to enjoy. I've been several times in the past couple months, and each time the service is worse than the time before, culminating in last night's visit when I found a sliver of glass in my martini. The waitstaff seemed unconcerned about this and did not apologize, even as I handed over the half inch shard. My drink was replaced, but not comped and I left with a lighter wallet and without any sympathy from the staff at Uptown Lounge.
Great Place – This place is really great. The staff are nice and friendly. The atmosphere is amazing. And, the lighting is really amazing.
The food was really great and I had some of the best filet mignon I've ever eaten. However, I don't think it was good enough for 5 stars. Further, it was CRAZY expensive. I think they're charging way too much for what they ultimately deliver.
Definitely a place not to miss. – This place is one of my all time favorite restaurants in New York, primarily because of the atmosphere and the outstanding service. The food is great, but nothing that sets it apart from our city's stiff competition. The reason to go here is that there just aren't restaurants like this anymore. The quality of service is so outstanding and makes you feel so special, that this is my go to place for special occasions and visiting friends/family.
Fabulous Brunch! – Though I usually stick to my own neighborhood spots downtown for brunch, I was pleasantly surprised by Uptown's Sunday brunch menu and two drink (Bloody Mary, Mimosa, Coffee, included) special -$15.95. Unlike most places in the city, there was no crowd or wait (even at 12:45), the service was quick and pleasant and the food exceptional (hefty portions). I really felt like I got my money's worth and enjoyed not being rushed out to make room for waiting customers. The brunch menue offered breakfast favorites as well as a few lunch crossovers. I will definitely revisit if I am uptown! (They also have a killer Cobb Salad).
Great Brunch – This place has the best brunch on the UES. Food, drinks, service, and atmosphere are all great! I also enjoy their martini specials on Wednesdays.
