This was my third visit to Upstream and the least satisfying. My co-worker had the scallops with cauliflower and she liked them, but commented that the plate looked empty until they added the sauce. There were three scallops and a few slivers of cauliflower, but...More

It was an okay dinner, nothing too memorable. Probably a bit too formal and old school for my taste. Like, 20 years ago maybe this place was cutting edge and spectacular but it doesn't fit with current restaurant trends. And while being super formal, the...More

One of the best dinners in quite some time. Our server, Susan was very knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations. Well presented and flavorful dishes. Fresh and fabulous! Can't wait to come back when next in town. Well worth the money. Don't miss out.

Nice restaurant with welcoming staff. Great sashimi, ceviche and tools. My favourite was the rice-less bamboo roll where cucumber skin replaces the rice.

The environment is quite intimidate as the soft lighting sets the tone for fine dining. The service is very good as well as the variety of dishes prepared according to your dietary needs.

Went to Sunday brunch here. It’s $27.95 per person. With bottomless mimosas for $13. Good deal! The buffet offers oysters, shrimp, sushi and classic fare. They also offer a small plates menu with French toast, pancakes, shrimp and grits and trout. Will definitely return!
