I couldn't believe the 'rude customer service' comments.....I've been here probably close to thirty times, and I've been treated exceptionally well each time. I find their atmosphere to be high class without being stuffy - a delicate balance that must be tough to manage. I should know - I've worked in the foodservice business for 13 years. Perhaps treating the waitstaff like human beings instead of indentured servants would help?
At any rate, the Uptown usually showcases a variety of specials along with their regular menu (try the escargots - you will not be disappointed!) For awhile, they had a 'cheeses around the world' platter that was simply divine! And once, just once, they featured a Mako shark steak with an imaginitive little basil-pine nut slaw....I still have dreams about that dinner!
Great beers on tap, wine for any budget....the only way they could improve would be to move to a more urban setting where the locals are less of the 'meat and potatoes, quantity over quality' variety. But then I'd never be able to get a table! Keep up the great work, Uptown!

This restaurant is great if you're not on a tight budget and have great night vision. The menu is pretty sparse but what is on there is delicious.
This has the facade of a casual dining restaurant but the prices and selection of fine dining. The service is not the quickest and the waiters don't seem to take much interest in whether or not you have everything you need.
But when you leave, there is definitely a feel of satisfaction. The food is undeniably great so it makes up for the poor lighting and snobby service.

This is a hip establishment with quality food, ambiance and service. When visiting the Illinois Valley it is a great place to get together with friends. Twice in the past year I've been to events in their banquet room and they were excellent. I have purchased gift certificates to this restaurant and included a jar of the restaurant's outstanding house salad dressing (available for purchase) and the gift was very well received. It is the kind of dining experience you can have in an upscale urban restaurant but without the hassle of the big city.

The Uptown is an up scale restaurant that I would classify as the best in the Lasalle Peru area. The food is exceptional and they go out of their way to try to satisfy special requests. I have been there several times but recently I had an occasion to take some Italian business colleagues to the restaurant and they were so impressed that they made a point to get one of the restaurants business cards. This is saying something because they make many special requests and are very particular about the quality of food and the service. There is something on the menu for everyone from pasta and seafood to steaks and salads. Try the apple/jalapeno pie for desert.

This is the Illinois Valley's destination restaurant ! I am a chicago transplant and would be lost without UPTOWNS ambiance, healthy options, selection of interesting wines, beers, and amazing cuisine. Aside of cuisine the owner has a passion for music and has monthly jams with national up and coming artists. Service is always precise and friendly. Prices are a bit higher than some other local restaurants but, one must pay for quality. The UPTOWN is as close to city dining in this quaint small town. It is the perfect place for a romantic dinner or a casual lunch. Perfect for large groups as well in their private dining room. Upscale without attitude. An oasis amongst unhealthy fried chicken and pasta overload !

The place is cute, with a nice feel. They pride themselves on their customer service but quite frankly it SUCKS! I used to frequent there quite often and I Kept giving them chance after chance and it always was a huge let down. Their way of doing things is very rude and unbelievably careless. I will never return!

Pros: GREAT Iced tea

Cons: Expensive, Rude!, Loud

.

The food is not up to par, the wait staff is cocky, the music is way too loud, and they have the nerve to charge by the glass for soda (not cool, it's fountain!). Also at night it is so dark you can't read the menu (I HAVE GOOD EYES TO!). Anyway I do not recommend this lousy place!

Great food and place. Their salads are good and so are their specials. One of my favorite places to eat in the area. Nice for special occasions too.
