Andrew Murray Vineyards wine dinner

If you are a foodie, you have to love wine, it is a requirement. Andrew Murray was wonderful, charismatic, and jovial. His passion was evident throughout the evening.

We anticipated a wait, but were surprised to find seating at the sushi bar. We wanted a light dinner for the 3 of us, so this was perfect. We shared sushi and another light plate. Good restaurant!

Enjoyed an excellent dinner at Upstream. So many wonderful choices. The waiter highlighted 2 dishes and we had both. The sea bass entree was out of this world, it was marinated in sake and served in an Asian broth with edemame and lobster dumplings. My husband had oysters and the seared tuna. Had one little glitch, wanted to change a... More

Upstream is a very lovely restaurant. The site itself is beautifully decorated, I especially enjoyed the fixtures on the ceiling that made it look like leaves floating overhead in water. The ambiance and atmosphere are very nice as well. Our server was wonderfully friendly and seemed to genuinely enjoy his work. He had great recommendations for what to order and... More

I treated a guest to lunch here. The waitress was wonder. The food was great. I ordered the flash fried calamari, and one of the sushi rolls. That wasn't the best idea only because I couldn't eat it all. My guest ordered the fish and chips. the food was great.

Upstream is a great restaurant for a business meeting. The restaurant specializes in hand caught fish flown in daily and shellfish. Try an appetizer tower of seafood for a special treat. The restaurant was a little noisy but that's part of the fun. Service was friendly, professional and spot on.

This used to be my favorite restaurant in Charlotte but the last couple of visits the service has not been great and our last dinner it was about the worst service I have ever experienced. We did have a reservation and there were empty tables. We sat outside. The food quality has also gone down and has not been consistent.... More

The Sunday Brunch is delicious!!!! Each time I go, there is always a great variety. Some of my family does not eat meat, but were still able to find great variety of satisfying items on the brunch buffet.

We no longer live in Charlotte, so hadn't been here in a while. Tom Sasser restaurants were always our favorite, consistent, high quality and always good. They've gotten a bunch of rewards and for good reason. Nice to see that the standard hasn't changed. I had a crabcake appetizer and a side salad, loved the sauce that came with the... More
