A word from TWO urban licks
TWO urban licks has been heating up the Atlanta restaurant scene with its “Fiery American Cooking” since opening in the fall of 2004, making it one of the city’s busiest restaurants on a nightly basis. The scene features “Fiery American Cooking” prepared in a magnificent nine-foot, wood pit rotisserie in the dining area and live blues nightly. TWO has garnered an abundance of local and national accolades including Conde Nast Traveler’s “Hot List”, Bon Appetit’s “Hot 50 Tables” and one of Rachael Ray’s “favorite restaurants” in the country as told to InStyle Magazine. Nominated year after year as Best Restaurant Scene and Best Place to Take an Out of Towner, it is no wonder that guests keep coming back for more.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Met friends there for dinner, everyone had a great experience. We all loved the atmosphere and loved the food. Service was incredible."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "One of the worst brunches we have had in Atlanta... bad food, bad service, bad experience. Won't be back for brunch."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Two Urban Licks has one of the best atmospheres in the city. We had a great time listening to the band at the bar before dinner. We liked them so much, we sat back down at the bar and listened to them until they were done. Great Jazz/Blues music. Oh, and by the way, the food was great too!"

  • "I cannot express how impressed I was with Two Urban Licks. I made reservations and was immediately seated. Our waiter was so attentive and on point. He made sure that all of our needs were taken care of even before we needed them. The food was fantastic. I was amazed at how quickly our food came. Since were were celebrating our 19th wedding anniversary, they took the time to bring us a free dessert with a personalized message written in chocolate. What a nice gesture that was. It made the experience even more special. To add, we were done eating our three course meal within 45 minutes. Now that is great considering that they had a full house on a Saturday night. I would definitely come back again. I loved it."

  • "We have enjoyed outings at 2 several times over the years and have always been very pleased. The menu is always creative and the food always tastes freshly prepared. We are eagerly awaiting our next opportunity to enjoy a meal at Two Urban Licks."

  • "Been coming here for years. Service always amazing. Food is impeccable. Brought our friends to 2 Urban Licks and they are now steady patrons. Definitely an Atlanta gem."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Love the empandas. Waiter Alex was fantastic. Had to wait 25 min even know we had a reservation which was slightly frustrating & the hostess wasn't the most friendly. You can't tell if bathrooms are occupied or not."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "While the patio is lovely, we waited nearly 15 minutes before we had to call someone over to get drinks started. Our server was dead set on up selling everything, which I always find uncomfortable. Then there was the food. We ordered appetizers to start and didn't want anything else after that. The calamari was mostly breaking but what calamari there was was like rubber. The tuna poke was fine, a little bland but fine. Salmon chips--salmon was bland. And then we got a salad that, while I think the ingredients were tasty, I couldn't taste them through the massive amount of dressing. Lamb ribs were ok, but cold. We couldn't bring ourselves to try anything else."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "Server was not very attentive and seemed like he had way too many tables to stay on top of. Overall I still give 4 stars because of the fantastic food and great ambiance. Great find if you like live Jazz too!"
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "For the price the food was fair. Birthday dessert was not good. Hard cookie. Will try brunch next time."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "I went with my wife for our 2 year anniversarry that a friend recommended. The food was great but no the most romatic for an anniversary dinner. I did have to send back a drink that had a fruit fly in it. It is a very loud place and I'm sure its even louder on Tue-Sun when the live band plays."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "The waiter definitely knew what he was talking about and helped make our decision on what to order simple. He had great wine pairing suggestions as well. Everything was delivered to the table hot (when applicable), and we never sat there wonderinf where our food was. This was the perfect place for my birthday dinner and I will definitely return!"

  • "The food was very good. The service was friendly but slow. The four of us went on a Saturday night and conversation was quite a strain."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I can say I've been, but I wasn't impressed. The ambience was the best thing about Two Urban Licks. I had the smoked lemon herb chicken with mac & cheese. The chicken was ok, a little bland. The mac & cheese was good. Drinks were over priced. Service was decent. I probably won't be returning too soon."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We loved the experience at the restaurant! Will definitely visit again!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This place never disappoints! Great service, great environment, and great food. We live two hours away, but dinner here at least once every trip is a must.....sometimes twice. We've been with groups and special occasions, but our favorite is a dinner for two at the chefs table/counter."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We've been to 2 Urban Licks a couple of times before and the food was very good, but it was pretty bland this time. The noise level was always a drawback if you're interested in talking to your companion, but the food compensated for that. Not this last time tho'."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Great first time experience. Was expecting a little more flavor and pizzazz to the food, but it was an overall great experience. I will definitely return and recommend to other diners."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Keep your best dishes on the menu. Was very upset that you guys changed your menu."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "A wood burning smoke smell us very strong inside. Tends to burn your eyes and make your clothes and hair smell. Portions are decent but nothing huge"

  • "Tucked away in a "warehouse" type of building... you'd never find this restaurant just driving by- I was referred by a friend of mine when I was traveling to Atlanta & WOW... just WOW. First impression- The brick oven smokey smell- that's NOT over powering, the dim lights the incredible art on the walls & low music made for outstanding ambiance. (wish my husband was with me- I was here on business!) Our server was extremely knowledgeable of the menu, helpful with suggestions and very friendly! (not too much that we wouldn't leave, though:)) Excellent food was the clincher... folks, Atlanta has a winner! Check it out when in the ATL area... you definitely don't want to miss this place!"
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "We were very disappointed in our server. She was very disengaged, short & rude. She brought us water, returned to take our order never asking if we wanted a different drink. Once our food arrived she didn't check on us until we called her over. Once she took our ticket & ran the card & printed the receipt she stood over there talking to her co-workers another 10minutes before bringing the receipt. Horrible waitress!!"

  • "two Urban Licks is one of Atlanta's best kept secrets, not on a busy street but off in the cut! The food was absolutely amazing and ambiance was beautifully architecturally and even the staff was very polite..would give it 5 stars!"

  • "The food and atmosphere was amazing!!! The service was also amazing, everyone was friendly. Can't wait to go again"

  • "We went with a couple who had never been and they really really enjoyed the dinner and entertainment. They said they would make it a place always to return."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We arrived on time for our reservation. One person was meeting us there. I checked in and the hostess gestured and told us to wait, "over there" until our party was complete. THE RESTAURANT WAS VIRTUALLY EMPTY as was the table they finally sat us at. What is the deal? (I may have had another cocktail). However, our service team more than made up for the basic rudeness and had the BEST dinner! Those salmon chips...OMG..was so happy they were still on the menu! We tried the watermelon salad special-delish! The cheese grits and flat iron steak that I had were just outstanding...I could go through every dish but there are not enough characters remaining!"
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This was our fourth time at this restaurant. It is always an experience. A good one I mean. The service is excellent. I have gone gluten free and someone from the staff actually came and sat down at my table to go over the menu with me to make sure that I was able to select a meal appropriate for my needs. I had the salmon with mushrooms and bok choy without the sauce. My husband had the trout. Everything was wonderful. The restaurant is a bit loud. We intend to sit outside next time."

  • "I truly enjoy the great fine dining, staff and environment!!!"

  • "Two Urban Licks is one of my favorite places in the city. Everything I have tried on the menu is simple, clean, plentiful and delicious and the experience is always excellent. I always feel like I get my money's worth here. The only slight complaint I have for this visit was that I wasn't a huge fan of the summer cocktail list that they had, but I realize that it's tough to please everyone! Overall a great night."

  • "TWO urban licks is an amazing restaurant with excellent food, awesome ambiance, and great service. We had our Christmas party there last year, and I wanted to try it on my own so I could experience the normal menu and experience there. I was very impressed. Service was amazing, starting with the valet parking and through the entire meal. The food was, as I would expect at these prices, excellent and certainly worth it. The environment is exciting, urban, trendy, comfortable, and overall cool. I wish I lived in Midtown so I could come here more often! (But that might just break the bank...)"

  • "Nice people. Terrible drinks. Poorly run. So many better places on town."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "I have dined here many times, but this time was bleh. My peas weren't cooked well. Flies buzzing around. My glass for my beer wasn't chilled. And the valet copped an attitude concerning his tip. Unfortunately I had a newbie with me who did not get a good impression."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I have visited the restaurant many times before and enjoy the experience with the dynamic menu. However, this experience was not so good. Our server was slow forgetful and not very attentive. I had to instruct him on everything and casually made jokes about the slow service to him. He did not catch the hint. I hope he was just one server vs. the new experience at 2 Urban Licks."

  • "Great food.Great music. Loved the decor. Need to add more brunch options for vegetarians and vegans."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "Saturday night crowd was very energetic. Nice vibe, great ambience. Very nice for special occasions or group get-together. Food was okay but way too expensive in my opinion. Lots of options for wines. Cocktails had little or no liquor."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Don't even bother making a reservation, our entire party was there at 928 for our 930 reservation and did not get seated until 1009. The hostess never informed me that they would text me when our table was ready. She seemed more bother than me. We were there for dinner before we started the bachelorette party. The group was small 4 ppl. Once we got seated it was very warm and we never got our bread. Service was slow and we had two servers assigned to our table. We are a group of professionals ranging from an RN to a prosecutor. The food was great but the service was very disappointing. Lesson learned, I won't be back."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "So you can't get a reservation until 9PM and you take it, then you get there and you wait in a cramped hallway in everyone's way and are not seated until 9:25...irritating. The wait staff was great, and altho the host was incredibly nice, poor guy (bad position to be in), the low service score is due to their inability to seat you within 15 minutes max of your reservation. In Europe if you wait they come by with drinks or appetizers while you're waiting at least. There's just something wrong with it, felt like I was at the doctor's office and you know what, I don't keep those doctor's very long either."
