Hadn't been back in a few years since leaving town. Had a great meal. Oysters were outstanding. Peking Duck was presented in an unusual way, but still good. Sea Bass in miso was wonderful. Easily would return.

My wife and I had another terrific meal at Upstream. Raw oysters were fresh and wonderful, ahi tuna appetizer was great, salmon entree and scallops were both perfect. Our waiter Josh was just right...attentive but not hovering. A great Valentine's Day dinner.
