UPSTAIRS 2 Ratings and Reviews
One of the few places on the west side of LA where you can hear yourself think and enjoy conversation with your tablemates. On top of this, the food is delicious, they make a very good martini, and it sits on top of the Wine House, so you can imagine the wines!
The sommelier and the servers are warm and friendly. It's a great place. We frequent frequently!! In fact, see ya tonight :-)
I've been wanting to go here for a long time and it was definitely worth the wait. The food was delicious with options for all types of diets. Shared plates made it easy to enjoy many different flavours. The wine by the glass and the regular wine list are well priced (for a restaurant) and extensive. So many choices!!!
Loved it. The only they need to improve is the decor. What's with all the curtains?
This is my first time at Upstairs. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We got great service. Our food came very quickly. We received great recommendations from our waiter. His recommendations were spot on. Excellent drinks. Excellent choices of wine. Again good recommendations Regarding wine. I will highly recommend Upstairs to my friends and hope to go again soon.
This restaurant is greater than the sum of its parts. Outstanding wines at great value, excellent but compact menu, reasonable prices, a stable waiting staff and a wonderful host make this an exceptional but understated restaurant. Add to that free dedicated parking and windows out onto the blue Southern California sky, and you get a winner. Even the patrons are agreeable!
Atmosphere, service and food are all wonderful. The atmosphere is warm, casual and elegant at the same time. The wait staff is always there when you need something - never there when you don't! Marilyn, the hostess, is a very friendly sommelier, very wiling to suggest wines that fits your food order. We stayed to chat after we had paid the check and never felt pressure to leave.
A very successful evening! Highly recommend..
They have gone from small plates to standard courses. We like the small plates approach better. The quality of the food is also somewhat lower than in the past. (My steak was tiny and overcooked.) This has long been one of our favorite places, so we hope they eventually get it right.
I have enjoyed the Wine House many times in the past but came away less than satisfied on our last visit. While the service and greeting were 5 stars, I have a had time rating the food more than just okay. The menu is excellent and offer a lot of choices. The execution of the food however seems to have gone downhill. While I enjoyed my crab sushi roll appetizer, the salmon entree and the side of spinach. was nothing to recommend. First problem was that both the salmon and the vegetable were salty beyond description. I only flavor I could taste was an overdose of salt. The vegetables accompanying the salmon entree were plain beans soaked in butter. The sauteed spinach tasted more of salt and excess oil than a fresh vegetable.
All in all, I have had much better presentations of fish dinners. I hope the Wine House returns to the food quality it once had.
We stopped going to Upstairs 2 a while back because the last couple of times we were there, we had to send the food back. We decided to give it another try...soft shell crab was too hard to pass up. We were pleased with our meals, tasting menu with the wine paring was really good as well. We would go back again. The place was packed so I guess they are really stepping it up. The service was excellent, just enough without bothering.
We ordered almost everything on the menu (small plates) and each dish was fantastic. Service was wonderful. It is nice that all wines can be ordered as 1/2 carafes so our table was able to taste several different wines and pair them with our dishes. Will definitely return when we are back in LA.
We had the Moroccan chicken, peach salad, and halibut. Everything was delicious. The halibut was a tad dry, but very tasty. The extra plate of goodies that was brought out with the fresh baked baguette we order was a delightful surprise. For desert we shared raspberry and chocolate sorbet-
Wonderful! Thank you again Upstairs 2 for another great evening.
