Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. Best sushi I’ve had in a long time. Romantic ambiance and great service.

During our visit to Charlotte, we had lunch twice at Upstream. Both times, the food was very good: fresh and simple. We had crab croquettes, and salads. Service was slow, but we were not in a hurry, so we did not mind.More

Had lunch this time. Previously meals have been excellent, but this time was disappointed. Yes it was a new menu, but that is not an excuse for the quality of food. Additionally. Service was slow despite it not being busy. Hopefully this is an aberration...More

While the sushi options don’t appear to have been altered (love the snap, crackle & pop), we were disappointed to see the Tuna Tacos and Shishito peppers no longer on the menu and some the new items we tried (shrimp) didn’t measure up. Due to...More

The food was pretty good but not tons of options. Only a couple of odd starter salads if you like to start with a salad. Seems like they are trying too hard. We had at least 4 employees approach us at some point. A few...More

We fall in the “loved the old menu” camp. Service was great and the new sea bass was very good, but that was literally the only thing on the new menu that I wanted to try. Sadly, we won’t be back.More
