Last night my party of 5 took advantage of Charlottes Restaurant Week at Upstream. It had been several years since I had dined at the restaurant. We had a lovely meal and 2 in our party took advantage of the wine pairing menu that accomplanied the restaurant week menu. They found that to be a very nice value. ALL of us totally enjoyed our meals and I had forgotten how top notch this kitchen is--must return soon!

I'm not sure if they switch it up weekly but on my visit they had a spread of salads, steamed shrimp and clams, chicken, brisket, salmon, roast, an omelet station, shrimp and grits, pastas, a tapas menu(included in the price) with waffles, scallop risotto, trout tacos, crab cake benedict, french toast, etc., and an array of desserts........well worth the $25 bucks in my opinion.

The decor at Upstream makes you feel like you are somewhere else. The staff is always very warm and friendly. The food is prepared and presented well. Even their china is unique and beautiful. Their seafood as well as their sushi are fresh and delicious. They have an extensive wine list and a great variety of delectable desserts. The only negative about this restaurant can be the noise. On a busy night it can be quite loud since tables are fairly close.

Server was attentive and knowledgable. Explained oysters origin, flavor and texture. Almost convinced me to try, despite my past oyster experiences. Instead, chose an amazing Ahi tuna with a side of delicate sauteed green beans. Nice wine choices by the glass. Gelato for dessert. All reasonably priced.
