Service and food was superb
Chef Nick knocked it out of the park again. The charred avocado salad (a newer item on the menu) was delicious-our tweens said they could just eat that and cancel their dinner, until their short ribs came-which they also loved! My flank steak was perfectly cooked and the gorgonzola slaw provided a savory contrast to the carmelized glaze on the meat. The mixologist made a fantastic spin on a manhattan and the diablo margarita was aromatic and just spicy enough. Overll, an exceptional experience, and one we have come to expect as they always deliver! Can't wait to go back!
The service at this location was excellent. Everyone was so friendly from the time we arrived there until we left. The food was unique and amazing. Everyone in our party enjoyed the food. The key lime pie was amazing as well. I definitely recommend it.
Wonderful restaurant. I’ve always enjoyed it. There is a small dining area with windows that open all the way. So you feel like you’re sitting in a dining room. Can’t wait to be able to dine inside once again. There is a lovely dining area and an even vibeier bar.
A fun time with great unique food and a nice atmosphere. We go there often and were it not for COVID and the slightly reduced number of menu choices, would probably go more.
consistent delicious food. The charred avocado and chopped salad are fantastic!
Upper West normally has great food, great service, and a great vibe. On this visit they missed the mark on service and ambiance. The server did his best to make it right and that is appreciated. Will go back and expect the usual great all round experience that Upper West provides.
This was the second time I’ve been to Upper West (during the pandemic), it’s my cup of tea! The staff is attentive and food selection is broad. Drinks are varied and delicious! The small disadvantages are street parking only and it can be a little loud during normal business hours for outdoor dining. After 6-630pm however, you’re in the clear!
The food was absolutely amazing. Chef Nick fried avocados and sweet potatoes are my all time favorite. Trust the recommends of the staff. You can’t go wrong!
Great, attentive service. Chargrilled Avocado app was fantastic. We both had fish dishes which were wonderful.
Food was really good, noise level high, probably not a good choice for a quite and romantic evening
Great place. Food was excellent. Oddly very slow service with 60+ min wait for entree to be served after ordering.
The service was impeccable. Every staff member we interacted with was super friendly. The food and drinks came out super fast and was delicious.
I had a great time and the food was amazing.
Loved the charred avocado and chopped salad! Also very accommodating for gluten free
Food is always amazing and the service is personable
Not a fan of the giant movie projected over my parties head. I'd have liked to not have the distraction. But the food and service were good and I had a nice time.
Consistently good food. Interesting menu and great service.
The food was disgusting...usually never write a review, but this is 1 of the worst foods I’ve had ever in a restaurant.
The chopped salad was trying to be too creative w/ the fruits & feta along w/ the bulgur & the Spicy Tuna was like a runny paste instead of chopped on a chewy Crispy Rice.
Smoked Blue Cheese chips is a novel idea & was excited to try, but ended up too blue cheesy.
The steak had too many sinews...only redeeming dishes were the Thai Peanut Noodle & the Charred Avocado.
Service however was very good...unfortunately, the food did not match the service.
Great food as always. Only reason for the 4 rating on ambiance is the outdoor street side table setting. Well worth it, though to have a great meal during the pandemic. No loss in service or tasty food despite the smaller menu. Owners take great pride in what they do here, so more time to chat with them due to the smaller number of patrons than pre-COVID. One of our favorite restaurants before, and still a favorite now.
Love this place. The food is great and the people have always made sure every one of us feel special. So good to be back!
Great food and the staff were very welcoming and friendly.
great neighborhood spot for food and drinks, very consistent
Our favorite place to eat. Hands-down, best in town!
Amazing food, delicious drinks, and the dessert is to die for. I highly suggest the bread budding and short ribs
Great food, great price and great social distancing area to dine.
The drinks were a bit inconsistent so I’m still not sure what we had.
The food was amazing! I had a food allergy and they did not omit it from my avocado appetizer and I pointed it out. Then for dinner it was in another dish and they did correct it quickly after serving it but I ate a little already. So a little scary and thank goodness I did not get sick.
Loved the seating arrangement! Food came out quickly and was delicious.
It is one of my favorite restaurants, obviously things are different now, and I don't get to have the pleasure of sitting at the bar right now, but I will keep supporting them through the crisis.
Upper West is my favorite restaurant, hands-down a true winner! Get the chicken sandwich and avocado with toast. It's excellent.
Food is amazing. Ten out of ten each and every time!
My husband and I ventured out for our first "date night" romantic meal since the start of the pandemic and our county's slow re-opening. First up, Upper West is well set up to follow all the protocols for social distancing and safe food service. We made a reservation and sat on the patio. It was lovely! Breezy but not cold. We ordered cocktails, shared the octopus appetizer, then he had the short rib while I ordered the salmon. Everything was delicious, fresh, and chef-driven. The service was friendly and attentive (in full face shields!) As a special treat, our server brought us a delicious dessert, on the house! We lingered over a glass of bubbly, the evening out was that pleasant. Highly recommend. Support a local restaurant!
Great food, service & ambiance🎉🎉
Very nice dining- sat buy open window so felt safe & distanced
Nice way to break quarantine. Very friendly staff delicious food will be back soon
Great food! Great service! Highly recommend
Celebrated Mother’s Birthday with family gathering of 10 people. They were super accommodating when we had a plus one and our party became a group of 11. The server was very attentive and accommodating. The food was delicious, chicken kabobs tender, the mash potatoes the best, the cocktails were great and the food portions were fair considering it was a lil more upscale restaurant. There was an error on one of our orders but the server quickly rectified it, comped me a cocktail and didn’t charge me for the dish at the end which was nice of him. The Ambience is nice although it can be a bit dim at night. Overall a great experience and one of the few places to re open up for large groups and meet most safety guidelines.
Amazing!! Such great food and great ambiance!
Food was delicious and service was great. Hope you have a more tended menu soon.
All was good--and we will go back, for this is, to me, the best restaurant in LA. They have service bugs to work out, especially related to table attentiveness and wine pouring in light of social distancing. (E.g., keep pouring the wine so that tables do not have to have embarrassing conversations about whether and who at table might do it.) The same goes with water. Nobody wanted to touch the water container to pour themselves water, out of fear of worrying fellow diners.
If you have not been to Upper West, you owe yourself a visit! It is amazing, despite my notes above.
