Curry 1/4 Roasted Chicken

The dish was absolutely to die for. The chickens overall cook was well balanced, being tender and juicy on the inside while maintaining that roasted crust on the outside. The curry was just the cherry on top. The spice very well opened my sinuses but was not overpowering in the overall taste of the dish. Nonetheless one of the best dishes I've tasted in my life and will definitely be back for a third serving.

Coconut Curry Chicken Wings

The wings had a great flavor, but weren't cooked well enough. This make the wings somewhat tough to eat. The service was great and the servers were impeccably gracious.

Creole Salmon

My partner and I came for our anniversary. He had the chicken; I, the salmon. Both dishes were divine. The buttermilk chicken was especially impressive. The salmon came with a nice pepper sauce. Our service provided by T was impeccable. We were given a tour of the entire joint after dinner. Beloved enjoyed the cigar bar. The overall place is nice. We'll return. In fact, I might meet up with some girlfriends this weekend.

Seafood Cake

It was a party of four for brunch on a Saturday. We tried 3 dishes. The crab cake benedict, the stuffed blueberry waffles, and the soul food plate. Of course the mimosas! The stuffed blueberry waffles were my fave!! The soul food plate had cheese grits, collard greens, braised oxtails, and fresh out of the grease chicken wings! Everything was so good even though oxtails are not my favorite. I will definitely visit again!!

Fannie Mae's Famous Fried Chicken

I came for my birthday and had an awesome time. Man this dish is a must try. I literally ate all 4 pieces of chicken and it was the juiciest chicken i ever ate. I ordered Mac n cheese and it was super cheesy. The owner was here and came spoke to us and wished me and 2 others happy birthday. Then he gave us all a bottle of rose which blew me away. I told him that was very nice and that I would be back for brunch. 4 days later i write this review from the restaurant about to eat brunch. This is a must stop!!!

We tried the bistro fries and the seafood cakes. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Kassandra has been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to having my birthday celebration here. Keep up the amazing work!

Frenched Bone-In Pork Chop

Let's state that I've had my share of Pork Chops, however, these were simply tender and flavorful. The service was punctual and very courteous and attentive. I will definitely be back soon! As a matter of a fact, my Birthday is 9/01 and I would love to have a small brunch.

Jerk Salmon Caesar

The Jerk Salmon Caesar is so flavorful and a different spin on a Caesar salad as they usually include chicken. The salmon is seasoned to perfection then the greens are crunchy with the right blend of dressing. I love that it's not iceberg lettuce served and greens with nutritional value. Great tasting and healthy!

The Chop

Honestly this was one of the best, if not the best, salads I've had thus far in my life. Everything was super fresh, the chicken was well seasoned, and it was all plated beautifully.

Jerk Salmon Caesar

Last Thursday was my first visit to Upper Kirby Bistro. I had the jerk salmon caesar and it was delicious. The salmon was cooked and seasoned perfectly, not dry and overcooked like most restaurants. I also enjoyed the service when I asked for a specific Pinot Gris the staff went above and beyond to find it for me. I had such a great time I was back the next day with more friends!

Collard Greens

I thoroughly enjoyed the soul food brunch menu item I selected on Saturday. The food was delicious. The amount was plentiful. It consisted of fried chicken wings, oxtails, collard greens, yams, and grits. The pomegranate Mimosa was delightful. Best of all, our server Anjelika provided us with excellent and expedient service

Seared Ahi Tuna

This was awesome. I got the tuna on the side. It was seared just right. Served with crispy wonton-like chips with grape tomatoes, cucumbers and avocado with a slight drizzle just enough and not overwhelming.
