We love Upstream. It has been our go to restaurant for special occasions for at least 18 years, that is until last night. They have totally revamped their menu. If you like Japanese Fusion then you will be right at home. Not us! We were...More

One of the best dinners in quite some time. Our server, Susan was very knowledgeable and helpful with recommendations. Well presented and flavorful dishes. Fresh and fabulous! Can't wait to come back when next in town. Well worth the money. Don't miss out.

Nice restaurant with welcoming staff. Great sashimi, ceviche and tools. My favourite was the rice-less bamboo roll where cucumber skin replaces the rice.

The environment is quite intimidate as the soft lighting sets the tone for fine dining. The service is very good as well as the variety of dishes prepared according to your dietary needs.
