From the time we walked in the door service was excellent and attentive but not to much. Good wine selection, food was very good. A must when in Charlotte
Worth swimming upstream for, if you like fresh seafood, with a twist! Good selection of choices, waiter with sound knowledge of dishes and willing to make personal recommendations, pleasant atmosphere and well-priced given the quality of both the food and service experience. Would highly recommend this place....it was a very positive and enjoyable evening from the first bite to the... More
I had been very excited to eat at Upstream after reading all the trip advisor reviews. However, I left dissapointed. We went on a Friday - and things were weird from the start. We asked for a 6:30 reservation and they told us they only had 6pm or 8pm. However, the entire time we were there the restaurant was virtually... More
At a pharmaceutical company event last week we were there 2 hours before getting served our reheated dinner by a waiter who spent more time staring at his notes then he did serving. Portions were small and clearly not up the quality seen in the main dining area.
I can't comment on the meat products, but if you are a seafood fanatic, this is your place! Very knowledgable service, and extremely fresh seafood - what's more to expect? Upstream is more fine dining than the usual casual set - which sometimes is nice to experience. Anyway, you won't be dissapointed!
We went in for a leisurely Saturday lunch while weekending in Charlotte. Upstream's in the chic part of town called SouthPark. We shared a bento box with tuna and also the salmon BLT. They were both delicious! (And we're pretty fussy about our food as you might see in our other reviews!) We thought the entrees were very reasonably priced... More
All the food was carefully thought through and well cooked and presented. And the service was just right - helpful and informative - thanks Matthew. Do try the signature seabass. And the rich and delicious tacos (what is that flavour? tamarind? fish sauce? anchovy?). And the bento box. And the craft ales. And btw I understand now why you should... More
My husband and I had a wonderful meal and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. Our server was attentive without being intrusive and his suggestions for all courses was spot on----fabulous mussels appetizer, perfectly-cooked fish for main course and excellent and light dessert as well as a nice selection of wine.
We had a long weekend in Charlotte and this was recommended by a waiter at another restaurant (and also had good reviews on TA). We were able to get reservations that Friday night even though we called Friday afternoon and I am SO happy we did! It was very good. The appetizer (spicy shrimp in lettuce cups) was GREAT. I... More
My husband and I have eaten several times at Upstream over the past 5 years. We just had the best fish EVER in any restaurant (sea bass and tuna). The restaurant is casual, yet elegant, with wonderful unobtrusive service. I can't rate it high enough! Still thinking about that sea bass days later!
