Anniversary dinner. We both enjoyed our dishes (sea bass and grouper). We went in for our anniversary dinner and both loved our pricy meals. Two appetizers, two drinks, two entrees and bottled water came in at about $150 with tip. Everything on the plates was delicious from the fish to the sauces. Great flavors to savor. Exceptional service as well.... More

Mondays they have a super deal on oyster which are consistently good here. All the sea food is consistently delicious if a little overpriced. Staff is very agreeable

Wife and I have a pleasant night out, enjoyed our dinner thoroughly. We both had Salmon dishes. Very tasty probably one of best I had in a long time. Nice crafted cocktails too. We finished off with a chocolate biscotti mouse desert and very tasty. Atmosphere was warm and romantic. Only reason why not a 5star I felt salmon dish... More

Heard this was one of the best brunches in Charlotte, so we decided to give it a try. Overall, I thought that the food was good, and there was plenty of it since not only can you eat off of the Sunday brunch buffet, but you can order tapas as well. Be advised that if you are wanting a bloody... More

Top of the line for getting seafood in Charlotte (very difficult to get really well prepared "Boston" seafood in Charlotte). The atmosphere is sophisticated and the staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Appetizer of crab cakes was very good. It was their own recipe. The trout was prepared very well and great presentation; the same for the dover... More

I am a foodie, a cook and difficult to please. There is something good and something missing here. On arrival, we were immediately shown into the overflow room, the banquet room, the substandard room with the charm bypass décor. NO. I asked to be seated in the main dinning room and was shown to the table closest to the kitchen.... More

My friend and I ate at Upstream during the Queen's Feast this year. It gives those of us who don't normally try new places the opportunity to try some of the upscale restaurants at some not-so-quite prices. For an appetizer, I got a bowl of oyster stew. Can't say it was the best I have ever had. The oysters were... More

Upstream has been a favorite since our first visit several years ago, both during Charlotte's Restaurant Week and on numerous occasions throughout the year. It quite simply never fails us regardless of what we order. Upstream is the high end restaurant of the Harper restaurant triad consisting of Harper's, Mimosa Grill, and Upstream. All do an excellent job, but Upstream... More

This restaurant has been in business for years and does not disappoint. Last visit was doing restaurant week so it was very busy, but the service was very good. The salmon was cooked to a very nice medium and the accompanying sauce and vegetables were delicious,

My husband and I ate here the other night with some friends. I am a southern girl, used to eating southern foods. The food in front of me was intimidating.
