My wife and I have dined at Upstares at Varaillis numerous times. Their standard menu selection is excellent. It is supplemented with interesting daily specials. The Lobster Ravioli and the Sauteed Sea Bass are excellent. Ask for the Lobster Cocktail as an appetizer. It is a special, but is almost always on the menu. Huge chunks of crab ! The wine selection is good and reasonably priced. The waiters and waitresses are very knowledgeable and helpful. There are large windows on two sides of the restaurant. When making reservations be sure to ask for a window seat overlooking Broad Street. Since it on the second floor it is great for people watching while you eat. The location is perfect for the theaters, the Academy of Music, or the Kimmel Center, which are across the street. The staff will ask if you are going to a show and make sure you are served in plenty of time. The sister restaurant Sotto, while a little more lively, is downstairs and is also very good ( they share menus) with a nice jazz band.

I would definitely recommend Upstares for pre-theater dinner or a nice romantic dinner.

Excellent food and service. Nice menu, but a bit heavy on seafood items. Nice view of Broad Street and the Academy of Music from just about any table.
