A lovely restaurant tucked away in a quiet building. You must take the elevator UP to the restaurant so have a nice view of the Houston skyline.

We dined at Up on October 1, 2016. The place has been there many years now, and we drove by it almost every day while living in Houston, but never stopped in. Friends of our suggested this place so we met up for dinner. We were sure glad we did, and felt a little sorry that we had not had... More

A companion and I dined at this establishment on 11/19. We had reservations and was seated upon arrival. The restaurant was absolutely beautiful. The waiter was very professional and polite. He took excellent care of us, ensuring that our water and wine glasses were always refreshed. The wine list is quite extensive. The waiter and manager were kind enough to... More

Up has good food and a wonderful atmosphere. The purée cauliflower, crisp brussel sprouts and artichoke hearts, and dessert macaroons were quite nice. It sits up over stores in Highland Village, and yet has an elegant elevator entrance. The tree line view of the lights and surrounding area is lovely. The service is personable and friendly. It is a terrific... More

Great brunch with brkfst, salads, sushi and hot items. Everything is fresh and you'll want to save room for the huge macaroons that are to die for.

Chilean sea bass and lobster ravioli were fantastic. So much flavor and perfectly cooked. Great ambiance as always and excellent service. Creme brûlée has a little too much liqueur for my taste and I should have ordered another drink. Pom mojito was just ok. Other than those minor hiccups everything else was fantastic.

We brought our 13 year old daughter and 3 of her friends to Up for her birthday dinner. We wanted her to feel special... to have dinner at a "fancy" restaurant that didn't have a drive thru window. Up DID provide that. The atmosphere and ambiance is nice. The wait staff is knowledgeable, professional, and courteous. There's a great view... More
