“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

Weren't expecting much, but were VERY pleasantly surprised with our Mother's Day Brunch here. Can't remember when I've seen eggs done so well. We were 13 people and not one scramble to wet/dry, omelets that didn't have a trace of brown and poached that oozed to perfection. Simple, but you forget how often others only get it ALMOST right. Will definitely be back.

“Great Neighborhood Loung/Dining”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Uptown Lounge is a regular spot for me when on a 1st date for drinks, dinner or brunch. Much better than meeting in a sports bar and the food is pretty good. I recommend the chicken satay. Saturday nights they have live Jazz music and I have seen the space rented out for private parties. When the weather is nice the outside seating area is pleasant.

“Lounge Lizards and Rubber Neckers”
Reviewed August 10, 2012

This is a good place for rubbernecking from the sidewalk seating while having a huge platter of cheese nachos and a drink. Inside you have a choice of banquets, bar stools or bar height tables to have big plates of lounge food. It is also full of gaggles of men and women in their 30s and 40s on evenings with standing room only.

“Good value for the steak”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I enjoy eating there. The steak is great and for a reasonable price. I just didn't give 5 stars becauseit takes about 40 min for the meal to be ready. I love also the great vibe.
