    We came a Sunday for Seattle Restaurant Week. On the website, it states that they start SRW on the 19th. However, when we got there, they told us that they don't start until the following day. My family and I decided to stay & try out their brunch menu anyway. I got the Benedict omelet whilst my dad got the burger & my cousin got the bacon omelet. I did like how my egg was cooked, but other than that, majority of our food was very salty. My dad took a bite of his burger and decided to stick to the french fries. The service needs improvement. I felt like our waiter was not that attentive or friendly. At one point, he forgot to bring in milk for my tea. I had to ask another waitress for it. Will we come back again? Nope.

    Nice place, good location. The food ranged from excellent to barely ordinary. Wonderful fried calamari, very good crabcakes. Mediocre burger and fries--it was one of their featured items. Well done (I should have sent it back and asked for medium rare), and dry. And it sounded very good, but it fell apart in my hand and I needed a knife and fork to eat it. And it is hard to make mediocre fries but they did. I might go back, have the calamari, and try the lamb shank...

    We set-up a table of 7 and it worked out great. I wasn't able to change it to 9 online, as open-table said Urbane didn't allow online bookings that large. But I called in and it worked out great. Everything came out warm, delicious, and at the same time. I've never been disappointed by this restaurant.

    Overall nice evening/dinner experience. First time visit. The drinks were very good, as were the appetizers and the my first course (Kale salad) was great. Some at the table had Halibut or Salmon entrée which was reported as being very good.. I chose the grass fed NY strip which was standard for the cut, but it was served on a bed of bread bits and other parts mixed in.. I was rather disappointed... the bar was packed and very vibrant and seem this is a great place for some bit and bites and a drink.

    The wines by glass are pretty pricey. The menu is very small. We found ourselves eating appetizers because we weren't big fans of the food on main menu. Despite that it was good food and service.

    The bar is a must at Urbane. Great wine list, an all-day Sunday happy hour - and amazing drinks. Ask Chase to make you a special drink and you can't go wrong. Good food, quick service, and a neat restaurant.

    I had heard about Urbane from friends so I thought I'd try it and was pretty disappointed. The food was just ok, not great for what you are paying. I expected a little more based on what I heard and based on prices. I gave this a 3 star more for the food aspect. If it was based on service I would of given them a solid 2. Took awhile to have our server acknowledge us, then brought out our side dishes first ( a good 15 min before entrees) he never came back for us to even ask where our entrée was. Then food was there and saw him when he was ready to hand us the bill. There was also an altercation at another table with the customer and staff... which turned into the whole staff standing around gossiping about it in front of the main entrance.

    I choose this restaurant because it was close to the Paramount Theater. I was taken to a back table and had to ask for a different table by the window when the restaurant was empty. My chicken dish was not as represented, so again I was disappointed. However, wonderful view of the commuters taking their bus home, vibrant sidewall scene, and the waiter was outstanding. Wanted to try it. Now that I have, I will try other places. The scene and feel of the Bar, seemed interesting and exciting compared to the back corner of the restaurant.

    Having visited Urbane many, many times in the past, I had the usual high expectations for this place. Saturday night fell short, very short. Our waiter took 20 minutes to ask about drinks - so long in fact that the host finally took our order for drinks and food at the same time. Then, he never checked back on us. We were nearly late to make our play at the Parmount and had to ask 4 different individuals for our check. We were unable to enjoy dessert because of this. At the end our waiter returned and we explained to him how upset we were, he just shrugged his shoulders and walked away. Absolutely certain I won't be going back or recommending this place to anyone else.

    After an earlier, good experience at Urbane for lunch, we decided to try dinner. While the hostess was pleasant, the service thereafter was mediocre at best. Our server appeared to have too many tables, and service was slow all night long. The hostess did cover a follow up drink request. Our server blamed the service on an overwhelmed kitchen. The food (cod, lasagne) was actually good. Unfortunately, the overall experience was marred by the lousy service.

    We had a dinner reservation before a show at the Paramount and showed up very late due to traffic. But they got our food out to us very quickly and it was all outstanding. The food was much better than the last time I came here on Valentine's Day, when it was pretty lame actually. Our waitress was brand new, but she did a great job getting our order quickly and getting it out to us.

    The hostess was terrible, she was in a fog.You speak to here and she just looks at you with empty eyes.Although she did verbally respond,based on her lack of action, didnt understand what you were saying.This is not the initial impression you want a first time visitor to Urbane to remember. My friends were upset and thought about asking for the manager, but we were celebrating my birthday and didn't want to make a fuss.The fish dish was delicious,however, the chef forgot the green beans in our fish dish.We mentioned this to the waitress at end of our meal, she then came out with a dish of green beans. Stated " the chef wanted us to have a taste of green beans",I found this rather odd. The upside, the servicer was excellent and attentive.

    We were looking forward to having an early dinner at Urbane and taking advantage of their happy hour choices. When we arrived they told us that a new policy meant that they were only serving their happy hour menu in the bar and there weren't any tables for 4 available in the bar. They really need to update their website with that information. The food was good but very pricey.

    We were told we could be served from the bar if we sat outside. We were plagued by street people the entire meal with zero interference from the wait staff. Our cocktails were served after our food arrived. Had I known, I'd have ordered wine. The mussels were dry and shriveled; poutine was cold. Service was slow and our waitress seemed on the verge of panic. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was like that of a train station: loud and not cozy.

    Being on a walker, the waiter asked if I would like to use the lift. I said Yes. That was immediate good attention. The waiter we had, reddish hair, very Irish-looking, was delightful. He was attentive at all the right moments. This party of each ordered different items off the menu. There wasn't a single word of complaint. Every one thought the food was wonderful. The parking was perfect, $8 for 5 hours. Will come again.

    Urbane is a very good pre-dinner restaurant. Located in the Olive 8 building, the restaurant has a very nice ambience. The food selection is a nice spread of northwest contemporary fare. We started with an excellent salmon crudo dish, which highlighted the fresh fish. The caesar salad was average with the dressing being a bit light for my tastes. We also had the braised beef sliders which was also very good. I would have liked more of the slaw to balance the flavor, but overall this was quite a tasty dish. Lastly we had the duck which was served with grilled apparatus and topped with shaved parmesan and chives. This dish worked well, the grilled asparagus and toppings complemented the slightly overcooked but still tasty duck.

    Great appetizers... so good we ordered 2 of some. Unfortunately, the chefs here need to learn how to cook meat properly. We ordered a med-rare ribeye came out on border of med to med well, and untrimmed fat. Duck breast was also overcooked to medium to med well levels. The burger (which replaced our steak) was good. Mussels, and beet salad were amazing.
