Tasty bistro in the Gaslamp
Made arrangements for a group during a conference in SD. Got feedback that everyone enjoyed their meals very much -- including lamb, halibut, lobster, salad, pasta, and more. Service was good and attentive. Drink specials in the bar during happy hour were very nice. $5 for a delicious martini. Waiter was good about making suggestions for shared appetizers and being honest about what dishes were or were not his favorites. I would come back when in SD again.

Awesome food!!! My hubby loved
Awesome food!!! My hubby loved the blue cheese that was served atop my steak, said it was the best he'd ever had. The special bone-in ribeye was probably the best steak I've ever eaten!!

Great food, and very attentive
Great food, and very attentive service. Some of the food items are pricey, the beef dishes and desserts, but worth it since this was a special occasion and I had a $50 gift certificate.
it wasn't crowded so my friends and I were allowed to eat and chat as long as we wanted. We didn't feel rushed to leave once we were done eating.
The ribeye and short rib dishes are fantastic.

I was a little skeptical because the menu is not cohesive at all BUT the food was delicious and perfectly cooked. They also did a great job accommodating our large group.

The food was very good; our server Randy was inattentive and distant almost as though he didn’t want to be there. I would like to thank the Waitstaff for stepping in to make our dining experience pleasant.

Can't wait to go back...
Everything from th food to the service was top notch. Coming from someone that works in the industry and is therefor ultra critical when it comes to the little details...Urban Bar & Grill did not disappoint.

This was my first time dining
This was my first time dining at UB&G and I could not have asked for better. First of all, our waiter's service was impeccable and I will return to this restaurant over other options in downtown because of the service my party and I received (with two children, a well-behaved ages 6 and 2). It was very nice to see staff treat our children as little ladies. The parmesan crusted salmon was delicious and my husband's rigatoni dish didn't survive past five minutes, it was so good he barely spoke so he could continue eating. The girls received linguini with marinara sauce and also sliders with shoestring fries - both were loved and made the girls very happy. Draft beer selection was around 6 (?) but well selected. Happy all the way around :)

Eat here late on a Saturday
Eat here late on a Saturday on their outdoor patio. They had a live musician inside that was the perfect background music. Our server was friendly offering San Diego vacationing ideas as well as food recommendations. I ordered the polenta crusted chicken - the sauce on the chicken will live in my mind forever! It was amazing! My companion ordered the Urban Burger which was said to be delicious and perfectly cooked. The restaurant had a decent size wine list with bottles ranging from cheap ($30s) to more expensive to suit any taste.

The menu is was drew us to visit Urban Bar & Grille.. So many wonderful and creative dishes. The veggie burger was great! There is patio dining so you get to people watch, which is great since its in the heart of the Gas Lamp District. Prices very reasonable and the server was very relaxed, but on top of it as well. We will definitely go back when we are back in San Diego.

We had the beet flatbread, the steak quesadilla, the baby arugula and beet salad, and a side of french fries. Everything tasted delicious, especially the dressing and presentation of the beet salad. The french fries are thin and ultra crispy. The service was great and we definitely had an amazing time! Definitely a great place for food and to hang out!

High quality dishes
Urban Bar and Grill is a wonderful restaurant. The food and service is fabulous. I highly recommend the Salmon, I always tell myself I'll try something new but it is just too good to pass up. My dinner mates have tried a variety of fish and steak dishes....all fabulous. Appetizers great too.

Our first experience at Urban Bar and Grill was very positive -- very good food and great service from Daniel (or Donald).

Had a wonderful time. The Beet, Goat cheese and caramelized onion flatbread was to die for. The lamb chops were cooked perfectly and the serving was huge. The Seared Ahi Tuna was also perfectly cooked.
Appreciated the wine recommendations and the willingness to allow us to try a taste before committing to a bottle.
Thanks for a great evening

Urban Bar & Grill
My wife and I celebrated our anniversary and my birthday at the Urban Bar & Grill. We had a great time and they treated us well, The food was very good and the cocktails were excellent. Thanks for the great experience!

The food was delicious. They played live music. And the service was great. Had a great night there.

Awesome food in gas lamp district
I had the bone-in sirloin with port wine reduction and blue cheese topping with grilled veggies.
Sat on the outside and watched people walk by with talk to my wife with no problems with noise!
The water never was empty and the service was exceptional!

Lots of flavorful options
We had the beet and onion flatbread, the orange salad, and the polenta-crusted chicken. All were great. The lemon+raspberry cake was good but not great. Good beer options including some of my favorite San Diego brews. Great cocktails. Great service.
Live music was just starting as we were leaving around 7.30-8.

Great Neighborhood Restaurant
This is your great neighborhood restaurant. Great food, friendly ambience, friendly wait staff. Good for dates or families. Or for birthday (as we did). A wonderful place to have a fine meal and avoid the noisy bar scene that pervades the Gaslamp these days.

So glad I found this place!
Awesome from beginning to end. Made kind of last minute (4 days prior) plans, was able to get seating for 14. Was an hour late due to our limo and added 4 extra people and they couldn't have been nicer.
The food - The steak with blue cheese was awesome. The beet salad was outstanding. Drinks were awesome. Can't say enough. Love love.

Just a night out with my girl!
Light crowd on Labor Day evening didn't didn't slow down the kitchen.
The food was better than I expected, actually it was excellent, and the server was very attentive. Wine list was very solid.
I wouldn't consider the atmosphere romantic but with its great downtown/gaslamp location I can see it being a fine fit for virtually any occasion.
Thank you Urban Grill for providing value in the food and overall experience.

First time visit
The bar tender was excellent and he gave us some great suggestions about the menu prior to our guest's arrival. The waiter was not only attentive without being intrusive, but he knew the menu and when we explained are lines and dislikes and dietary restrictions, he deftly guided us to excellent choices. The food was very good though not exceptional. All in all, it was a pleasant experience and the service was great. I might add that we arrived for a 6:00 pm reservation on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant and bar was quite empty. It would be interesting to return on a busy Friday or Saturday night to see if the level of service and food remain consistent.

Stumbled upon a great place
Being from out of town, it is sometimes hard to find a great restaurant. However, while searching restaurants in the gas lamp district, The Urban popped up and we thought we would give it a try. It was a bit more expensive than what we were expecting, but the food was so amazing, that we didn't mind at all by the time we were done.

It is right by the cool weekend spots and the food is great. A bit pricey but it is worth it.

Had a good meal as usual here. Went on a Saturday night this time and the servers are just too busy. You see them only to take the order and the rest of the time you are serviced by the bussers and runners. Still had a good time as usual at Urban, however I would suggest trying to avoid it on a Saturday night ig you are a local.

The food was excellent and so was the food. The only downside was the loud music that was meant for a noisier restaurant. The ahi and the swordfish were both very good as was the pear & Gorgonzola salad.

Very nice bar and grill in the heart of San Diego's Gaslamp District. Varied menu, well-prepared dishes and very attentive service. Casual and pleasing.

Urban Bar & Grill was a great choice for a late afternoon meal and people watching .We really enjoyed our selections from the extensive menu, brussel sprouts, mac & cheese, kobey burger & fries and pear Gorgonzola salad. Everything was so flavorful that we couldn't pick a favorite.
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food and drink here.
While serving an excellent sushi style tuna taco, the bartender, Alex served up a well made Rye Whiskey Sour. They also have a good selection of craft beers to suit any style.
