I 'heart' the Uptown! – I couldn't believe the 'rude customer service' comments.....I've been here probably close to thirty times, and I've been treated exceptionally well each time. I find their atmosphere to be high class without being stuffy - a delicate balance that must be tough to manage. I should know - I've worked in the foodservice business for 13 years. Perhaps treating the waitstaff like human beings instead of indentured servants would help?
At any rate, the Uptown usually showcases a variety of specials along with their regular menu (try the escargots - you will not be disappointed!) For awhile, they had a 'cheeses around the world' platter that was simply divine! And once, just once, they featured a Mako shark steak with an imaginitive little basil-pine nut slaw....I still have dreams about that dinner!
Great beers on tap, wine for any budget....the only way they could improve would be to move to a more urban setting where the locals are less of the 'meat and potatoes, quantity over quality' variety. But then I'd never be able to get a table! Keep up the great work, Uptown!
HORRIBLE CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!!!!!!! – The place is cute, with a nice feel. They pride themselves on their customer service but quite frankly it SUCKS! I used to frequent there quite often and I Kept giving them chance after chance and it always was a huge let down. Their way of doing things is very rude and unbelievably careless. I will never return!
Too Pricey For What You Get – The food is not up to par, the wait staff is cocky, the music is way too loud, and they have the nerve to charge by the glass for soda (not cool, it's fountain!). Also at night it is so dark you can't read the menu (I HAVE GOOD EYES TO!). Anyway I do not recommend this lousy place!
Perfect for any occasion – Wonderfully prepared and presented food, great wine list, excellant service and the food choices are as diverse as they are delicious...Highly recommended.
Great food and place. Their salads are good and so are their specials. One of my favorite places to eat in the area. Nice for special occasions too.
