come up to expectations
come up to (one's) expectations
To be as good as or have the qualities that someone predicted, expected, or hoped for. We'd heard so many good things about the new restaurant, but the food didn't come up to our expectations at all, so we were rather disappointed. I'm so excited for the movie in the series—I hope it comes up to my expectations!
