What People Are Saying 

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!



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!

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. Bathrooms multiple stall- nice


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.
