Flawless experience. I had the Miso soup, Sushi, and the shrimp lettuce wraps. Great selection of wine and local beers as well.
Service was great, food was sub 4 star. Price was more reflective of the service rather than the food. And Phillips Place, no matter how you cut it, parking is just plain obscene.
This restaurant had the best fresh seafood I have had in a long time. The menu offers great salads, excellent meals, or sushi. All fresh and delicious. This place was a refreshing break from the normal chain restaurants in the area. Upstream makes a great place for a business meal - or a date. Great wine selection also!
Our plane landed early, and, based on the many Trip Advisor excellent reviews we quickly headed to Upstream for an early dinner. We arrived at 4 pm, however, the dining room was not scheduled to open until 5 pm. No problem, the maitre d' suggested their lounge and said you can order anything off the dinner menu. We first ordered... More
Upstream is a nice change of pace for seafood restaurants in the area. There are a lot of Asian flavors & choices, as well as non-Asian style dishes. There is also a full sushi menu. We tried the oyster appetizer, which featured some fresh, tasty Canadian oysters. The spicy rock shrimp lettuce wraps were also very good, but not terribly... More
We had a Friday night dinner here during Queen's Feast Week. We were shown to our table immediately upon arrival. It was difficult making a choice among all the appetizers and entrees. The crab cake appetizer is very good as is the line caught flounder entree. The fish was perfectly cooked and stayed hot until I finished it. Our waiter,... More
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience during restaurant week. The wait staff was prompt, professional and attentive. The entire menu was available for this special week. Options were well explained to us "first timers". The seafood we enjoyed was well prepared and seasoned. The atmosphere was upbeat and energetic.
This was our first visit to Upstream, which we've wanted to try since moving here. We finally went during Charlotte Restaurant Week. Food, staff and wine list were exceptional. We could have licked the bowl clean with the lobster bisque. My flounder was perfect and paired well with the truffle risotto. The flourless chocolate torte was a decadent way to... More
I was excited about dining at Upstream – menu seemed good, and reviews appeared to prove that to be the case. Unfortunately, I was woefully disappointed by my recent experience eating at this restaurant. The decor was nice enough, as was the service (although neither were spectacular), but the food just left a lot to be desired. Yes, it might... More
My wife and I have dined here and shopped in the adjacent Phillips Plaza several times, the most recent for our 52nd anniversary dinner last Saturday. The food, whether form the sea or steak is exceptional. The surroundings are calm and inviting. Our server this time was a little pre-occupied. The mussels appetizer was exceptional - no grit at all,... More
