"The food was wonderful. The small plate and a side was plenty to eat, although we splurged and had the creme brûlée, with honey and lavender. So amazing!! More interesting than typical recipe!!"

"The food and the atmosphere were outstanding. The service was slightly slow, but it worked out well because you didn't feel rushed and we're able to carry on a conversation with your fellow diners. The servers were all friendly and answered any questions that may arise. The View was gorgeous and would be even better in the summer, spring, and fall when they're full foliage is out. Overall we were all very pleased with our experience here will definitely be returning."

"The new menu is confusing to negotiate. Thank goodness for our server Stan who helped us work through it. Once we made our choices, we were pleased with the food, as usual. Perhaps you should consider changing the heading from "sharing plates" ( how do you share 1 scallop?) to entree or small bite."

"It was quiet, and romantic that day. Many couples there for a intimate dinner. The wait staff was sure to respect this. Our food was excellent. If you're looking for huge, greasy portions, this is not the place for you. If you're looking for the best quality food, cooked perfectly, and appreciate freshness, this is the place for you."

"We arrived early for a glass of wine before sitting for our 7 p.m. reservation.
A wonderful Domaine Lessure Reisling was outstanding.
We sat promptly at 7 but finally had to say something at 7:20 when we hadn't been approached for a drink or dinner order.
After quietly saying something to the Maitre D a waiter approached our table with a completely surly and condescending attitude.
The food was delicious and was cooked perfectly.
Unfortunately the servers attitude really spoiled what was intended to be an enjoyable evening at one of our favorite establishments."

"We ate on a Friday night, the bar had a band and many people. The dining area is adjacent so the noise made it difficult to talk. The food was just ok. We have taken classes at the Culinary Center, those were awesome."

"The food was great but definitely small portions even for tapas. We tried many different dishes and they were all different/great just small. We went on a Sunday and were one of 4 couples in the place. Emptied out and we were quickly the only ones dining. No complaints. Server was very friendly and didn't mind our boisterous behaviour. Would definitely come back!"

"We go to the Upstair Bistro (and the NYWCC) a few times a year for either "destination" dinners or wine tasting or classes. Never disappoints. The prie-fixe New Years Eve dinner met the mark with 4 courses of well-prepared food and great service. We had early reservations, which was good, as I could see the kitchen slowed down a bit as it got later. We enjoyed the pace of our meal and were not rushed by our friendly and attentive serve Elizabeth."

"We started at the bar and had a great conversation with our very knowledgeable bar tender. Bar offers a nice variety of craft beers, NY wines and cocktails. We started with appetizers of pizza (delicious) and brussel sprouts (OUTSTANDING!). Our dinners were delicious - nicely sized portions, flavorful, delicious! Our waiter was (Matt) was friendly, knowledge and attentive. It was an excellent experience; the food outstanding. We will be back!"
