Uptown is more a dining room rather than a restaurant to us: a place where we eat once a week. The service is consistently good, the food quality too, and the presentation of dishes truly amazing. Last time I had goat cheese home made ravioli and they were delicious. Noteworthy is the possibility to seat in a smoking free area,... More

The Uptown restaurant is located in a quiet and residential area of Bucharest, namely Dorobanti. It offers a choice of Italian food which is tasty but pretty expensive compared with the standard prices in Bucharest. Good service.

Since last summer Uptown restaurant is renovated: new paint, new floors, new windows at the garden, new tables and chairs, new cutlery, new lamps (with old style electric bulbs). But you can find the same elegant atmosphere, same good service and food, same good music in sourdine. The prices are the same, but the portions of the dishes are a... More

I have been to Uptown more than 30 times, it used to be a popular place for business lunches and dinners. The meals are always good although portions are not too large and pricing is on the high-end for Bucharest, the menu is not very vast but pretty much everything you might order is likely to be tasty. What I... More

I know this ace for years. What I like mostly is the quality kept high over time. Nice location, in the most charming neighborhood of Bucharest, surrounded by rich villas from interbellum times... The wine list is interesting and the food very tasty. Service is attentive. Coffee is great.

Now that you enjoyed yourself both the National Museum of Art of Romania and the Art Collections Museum, in your way to the Zambaccian Museum you can spoil yourself with a classy but yet a decent lunch at the “Uptown Restaurant” (www.uptown.ro/en). Definitely opposite to a tourist trap, this restaurant it is very well located for the next museum (Part... More
