This is a beautiful restaurant. We went when it first opened, but was rather expensive for just a quick meal locally. However, for lunch they have added a "petite" portion, which is a more reasonable size portion and a fair price. Food is good, but front of house staff should remember they have a job because of customers. Not that they don't wait on the customers, but one or two openly gripe in front of customers. Watch for more live music events that aren't the mainstream Texas Hill Country venue.

Expensive dishes, overpriced wines, and BAD service...consistently bad service. Took a group of 7 of us on a Sun evening. We were one of 2 tables in the place and couldn't get service! When we wanted to order dessert the waitress (who should have never been given the job since she was never trained to wait tables) was disgusted that we'd be staying long enough to have dessert! And they were open for another hour at that point. It was clear the staff just wanted to go home. I spent over $250 for our group's meal and it wasn't worth $40.00. So sad, this used to be a really good place but no one is minding the store so to speak.

Went here for brunch on Sunday and all I have to say is AMAZING! Great drive from New Braunfels as well. My husband and I love this place. Thank you for the great food!

This place has a really good Sunday brunch. Just about anything you could ask for. We've had the eggs ben, steaks, prime and a little of everything else and it's all really good. Pleasant atmosphere and very well maintained and clean. We'll be back when we go back to our winter home.

We stopped at the Uptown on a Sunday two weeks ago for lunch and we lost the lottery when it came to our waitress. We were seated at a table around a corner, by a window, and Echoe came by a few minutes later to take our orders. We did not order anything that was difficult, ordering straight from the menu. From that point on, though, things went downhill. After waiting about 10 minutes, we called another wait person over to find out why our drinks had not arrived yet (Water and iced tea). There was no sign of Echoe. Then, about 20 minutes later, our meals started arriving, not all at once, but somewhat on the installment plan. And, guess what? No silverware. I got up and finally found Echoe and told her we needed silverware. I think Echoe's mind was somewhere else, because the silverware never showed. We had to ask another waitperson to bring it. Throughout the meal, Echoe never stopped by to ask how the food was or to see if anyone needed drink refills.
We have eaten at the restaurant on previous occasions and the service and food were always good, however this time, Echoe primarily but the other staff as well brought down the quality. If we stop in again in the future and see that Echoe is working there, we will make it a point to eat somewhere else. She diminished our experience greatly.
