We had a party of 7 (including a 2-year-old) on a Saturday night at 7 pm. Our family rarely eats this early, so we were surprised that we had arrived in time for happy hour, a pleasant surprise. Overall, the food was excellent--veggie burgers, bonfire burger, tuscan linguine, and nacho chicken salad were fabulous. This is a group of picky eaters that never finishes all of the food that is served, but the portions were perfect and we ate everything. The term lounge in the restaurant title is a little misleading, because it is basically a restaurant. Although we ate inside, there is a limited amount of outdoor seating.

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.

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.
