"It's a great idea to have a place where members of the audience for Kimmel performances can eat before a show.
Pre-Show didn't live up to my expectations. First course was excellent and desert was good; the main course was pretty awful - salmon was dry, coq au vin just ok and Parker House rolls - ugh. Lots of food wasted.
Service was unprofessional and unfriendly and even though we arrived at 6.15, we were feeling pressed to get to concert easily at 8.00 pm. Tables were dreary with 5 chrysanthemums stuck in a vase with not much water. Don't think I will return."

Built around a California-style culinary philosophy that takes heavy cues from the seasons, Upland balances a familiar rusticity with a smart global approach, all enhanced with a New Yorker’s eye for detail. The restaurant offers an artful array of starters, entrees and sides, each plate accented with chef Justin Smillie’s enticing and urbane touch. The wine program, overseen by beverage manager Chantelle Pabros, matches the excitement coming out of Upland’s open kitchen, with a worldly 500-bottle list and a clever by-the-glass selection that’s remarkably food-friendly.
