We had a great experience at The Upper West. Fred and the rest of his staff did a great job working with my wife and me to create a beautiful intimate wedding experience in the private room. They have great attention to detail and immaculate service. Fred was gracious enough to meet with us in person to plan, as well as exchange emails and phone calls. He made it very easy. Also, the food was beyond reproach–truly exceptional. I highly recommend The Upper West for any private event. The next time I’m in LA, I can’t wait to return for dinner with my wife.

As we came near to the end of our dinner, the owner came over with a giant plate of dessert for the Birthday boy! Enough for the whole party to share! We were so pleased with the food and service. I will definitely be back with my family soon to try all the other delicious item their menu.

The private room was great–We had about 25 people and it was very spacious. We also had our own private waiter who was very attentive and brought us all cocktail refills in a speedy manner (which at an office party is key) My favorite cocktail was a blackberry mojito. I think their mojito selection changes per the season, but this was delicious, perfectly mixed, and not too sweet.
If you’re looking for a place that has a private room, I would highly recommend Upper West. I would love to come back try out more of the menu in a normal dining setting as well.
We had our rehearsal dinner in the private room at the Upper West last fall, and I highly recommend it to others. The food was amazing
