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.

    Ordered the flat iron steak and 15 minutes later was informed that they were out of flat iron steak. The waiter complained about having too many tables, which might equate to the poor service we (group of 4) received. Based on service, I don't recommend. Based on Food and Ambiance, I definitely recommend.

    From the moment you walk in, you realize that this place is in demand. There is a steady stream of patrons all evening, and the energy of the building is electric. Although they have an open floor plan, each section has its own personality; the bar is vibrant and lively, the large seating are is full of groups celebrating birthdays and other special occasions, and the patio offers great views and a more intimate ambience. It's a great place to hang out with friends, meet a new friend, or enjoy a date night.

  • Terrible Wait Time

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We had reservations for 7:30 and were still waiting for a table until 8:30. It's almost like the establishment was overbooked. Waiting at the bar was impossible because of the over crowding of people and standing in the hallway put you in the way of everyone who came through the door and felt the need to have a reunion with guests they knew that were also waiting for a table or leaving the restaurant. I went with small group of girl friends and we felt like we were ignored by the hostess. Probably won't be going back here again...the food was pretty good but not worth the struggle that comes along with eating here.

    We sat on the patio for the first time last Friday and it was a wonderful experience! We had a great view of the skyline, the beltline activity, and even the bocce ball players. Although the cool evening would have been comfortable, the overhead heaters kept us warm and toasty. The service was great and the food excellent as usual.

    This is my third time dining at Two Urban Licks and I have to say it is one of my favorite spots in the city! I love taking my out of town guests to this wonderful lil gem of a place! OMG the Scallops and Grits, Salmon Chips and Beef Empanadas are so delicious! Our drinks were really good. Nice and strong. I love the Valet and the whole atmosphere of the place makes you feel special and wonderful!

    I really love this spot and go regularly. However, the menu needs updating. It's fairly limited and it rarely changes or includes new items. Food is delicious, but there needs to be more variety.

    The food and wine was good, but way to expensive for what you ordered!! $10 and up for glasses of wine from giant metal tanks. You would think it would be less expensive given it is from a tap. Dinner was also over prized. For the money, I would rather go to high end steak house or french restaurant. At least then, I would be able to hear my date and suffer from the smokey air.

    We had clearly indicated within our Opentable reservation that we wanted a booth. Every single time (since 2010) our reservations indicated a booth we have gotten it or at least been notified of an additional wait. When they seated us against a wall and tightly squeezed among 3 tables, we notified the hostess who said it is another 45-minute wait though we had already waited 20 minutes for our table and came on time. We notified the waitress and manager who still refused to move us. The table behind must have felt the same because 2 couples decided to change tables and they did successfully. Having no help and no offer to switch tables even though we asked 3 different people based on one bad hostess completely ruined our anniversary night.

    Unfortunately, it appears this restaurant has lost its quest for great food and service and has replaced it with a zeal for churning out large parties and C quality food, D level service. Very sad because it is a great location.

    Compared to One Midtown -- this is McDonalds... Warm Wine ... Awful Service, Waiter never returned ... Boxed food at the table as the other diners were eating ... NEVER checked on the table ... The loud atmosphere made it so it was impossible to hold a conversation .. -- Wrote these issues on the check and informed the food runner (cause we didn't see the waiter) and the manager NEVER come over ... for the money this is a JOKE! Bummer Food was good -- we were to annoyed to enjoy it ....

    Dined on 10/4/2014
    Loved TUL and worth finding it's hidden location. Staff was very friendly including the parking valets. Only issues: 1) didn't do well with on-time seating for reservations, we waited 1/2 hour and didn't complain, but one patron who did was told they should be happy because without a rez, they'd be seated 2 hours later. (this also stopped all three hosts/hostesses from taking us to our table while they listened to the other patron's complaint); 2) Plan on smelling like the restaurant when you leave because this is an ongoing issue there. TUL is still worth going to...try the salmon chips even if you don't think you like smoked salmon--YUM!

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    We just moved to Atlanta and Two Urban Licks was highly recommended by coworkers as an 'immersion into ATL experience.' We requested a table outside, and had a great view of the sunset as well as the interior of the restaurant when they opened the garage-like doors. The empanadas were fantastic, the 'signature' salmon chips were just as expected, nothing amazing, although the homemade potato chips were a nice touch. I had the duck and my boyfriend had the flat iron, and we both came away from our meal thinking it was good, not great and certainly not worth the price - having come from NY where we are used to paying higher prices. Overall though, service and ambience were stellar, so do not regret checking this place out.

    I have used two urban licks many times as a first date place. I have also brought guests here from Maryland. I wAs here on 10/2/14, and this wAs the first time I was not impressed. I told the server to come back in 5 minutes to take our order, and it took him 20 minutes. When he took the order, my dAtes first choice was out: lobster crepes. I ordered the brisket, and this time it was way over cooked. I left left overs on the table when I ledt. O still tipped 20%. I spent $125, and I'm not sure if I will come back unless I have some incentive

    Food was awesome. However, fly flew in our food, and manager was horrible. Next, asked for a to-go box and received wet just washed bucket. Obvious it had been used, and just washed. One bucket even had a tag on the too labeled garlic, and it smelled like garlic. The manger was horrible, and thought it was funny. What started off as a great dining experience turned into a disaster. I won't go back to Two Urban Licks anytime soon.
