Dined here for a private event. They executed the event perfectly, the private event room was spacious and at the same time able to mingle with everyone. The bartenders and servers were very kind and efficient. The food was great as well, the steak and tuna rice dishes especially were superb. High recommend, great restaurant and venue.

We did a 40 person dinner at this restaurant and truly couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. EVERYTHING was delicious. Service was great, drinks were great, we had the restaurant to ourselves, and people raved about the food. Highly recommend this venue for any large group parties!

You have many new fans.

Festive ambiance. Beautifully decorated holiday tree. Lovely meal. Quality company. Professional and well- mannered staff. Our dining table of approx. 12 dinner guests was located in a private space. The evening’s menu was designed by our phenomenal host; neatly crafted and folded within the dinner cloth. The film “Elf” was projected on the large wall in our private area. Several bottles of quality wine were present and champagne; the dessert wine in particular was delicious! Our gracious host gave a wonderful toast. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for Christmas Eve. * The vintage photos from the 1950’s – 60’s of Hollywood’s Glamorous Stars Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe in the ladies room was a nice touch.

Fred,
Everyone had such a good time last night – we are still talking about it. The restaurant looked so festive, our room was perfect, the servers were outstanding and the food – so good!!The appetizers were so delicious and so big that people commented they couldn’t finish their dinners!Quite a few people mentioned that they had driven by the restaurant in the past and had never tried it, but are now looking forward to coming by for a meal.
Thanks again for everything and happy holidays.  Hope to see you again soon.

Great for large parties or events. Food delicious, service attentive. Burrata, tuna on crispy rice, octopus apps all delish. Sea bass on point. Would def come again. Good place for business meals.

We went in for the first time with about 25 guests for a office party. This was a super nice venue with amazing food and service. The cocktails are perfect. Their lamb and fennel flatbread and the shrimp ceviche were out of the world. Perfect place for happy hour with great prices as well! Service provided by Dominick. Thanks Dominick!

I want to say thank you! The effort you put into making our event wonderful was enormous! I can’t express enough gratitude!

Everyone I heard from expressed the venue was perfect and the food was exceptional. I couldn’t even try to tell you the number of people that commented to me the food. Way more than I normally hear from people.

Your expertise in placement of everything was a huge benefit to me.

You have a great restaurant and gift! I want you to know I truly appreciate your attention to detail as it made our event exceptional. I was stressed planning our most important party of the year for the first time with the added part it was in a city I wasn’t in. I want to thank you for dealing with me and helping me create what I was told by our CEO was a better Legend Party than Brisbane had (that is huge!!!!!)! I want you to know I couldn’t of done it without you!

Cheers!

Impeccable service!!!!! I was just there this past Thursday evening in a LARGE group of 30 of us and our server was sooo amazing. I can’t stress how accommodating they were to us. Unfortunately, I don’t remember our servers name but it was unique and he was wonderful! He was incredibly attentive to drink and food orders, you never felt like you had to search for him despite us literally standing and sitting in a huge mob by the bar. He even went above and beyond and helped gather everyone for a group picture and even cut the mini bundt cakes me brought in into quarters for us. So much attention to detail- it was unreal. The happy hour food menu is so delicious and well priced. We had the lamb nachos, bar burger, veggie burger, Mac n cheese and they were all super tasty. The cocktails are so well made- I recommend the golden rye if you like whiskey. The ambiance is romantic with dim lighting. Highly recommend this place! Thanks so much for the great service!

Does it get better than Fred when it comes to coordinating an event last minute?!! Not even close. And I’ve done way too many dinner events in LA that hardly compare to the beauty, ease, professionalism, service, and food that Upper West offered . . .and it’s has been right in my back yard this whole time. I couldn’t be happier with my experience here and I can’t wait to be back for another private event. Thanks Fred!
Cheers!

Had a great event for work here. Reserved a space near the front. We had our own servers and ordered buffet appetizer foods. EVERYONE loved the food. People raved. The wine- excellent. The service – impeccable. Booked with Fred- the owner- placed a deposit and he took care of the rest. Super easy and laid back with timing. This place was a hit!

I knew about this place as I have come for Happy hour- which is a pretty darn good one. Menu good. Vegan options. 

Very energetic place. Great crowd every time.
Will be back for event planning and happy hour for sure. 

Fred

Thank you so much for today’s luncheon.  It couldn’t have gone better and you have quite a few fans here.  Our department head who’s retiring loved the menu especially the salmon and the corn soup.  Your entire staff was excellent and we will definitely recommend your restaurant in the future.  A few of us will be there soon.

Have a good week and thanks again.

I wanted to thank you and the staff at Upper West.  Our function last night was a BIG success!!!  Our Board Meeting dinner was wonderful.  Everyone LOVED the food, the service was quick and on point, the vibe of the restaurant was amazing.  I so loved sharing my favorite neighborhood restaurant with my co-workers and out of town guests!  Thank you for making this come together so well!
Have a happy holiday season and many blessings for 2020!  You are sure to have some of my local co-workers come in for dinner soon!
See you in the New Year!
Namaste!
