We were not impressed by the loudness of the open room. There were too many tables in the small room. Because the prices were very high, we were surprised that there was no complimentary bread or rolls. The "large plate" servings were very small. My dish was luke warm at best. At the end of the night when our bill came it included 3 desserts that we didn't order, so it was lucky that I reviewed the bill. It was our daughter's birthday, and the server came out with what looked like a thimble full of whip cream - very underwhelming.

Normally I really enjoy the food here. This time I wasn’t so impressed. I had the special ; a lamb sirloin -ordered medium. It came served very rare, was served sliced with a copious amount of soft and chewy white fat throughout , which was horrid on the palate-really it was inedible. Served on a fantastic cheese polenta which was creamy and delicious. However, the polenta had candied Brussels sprouts hurried throughout it - which was an odd texture and flavour combination. I couldn’t distinguish or appreciate the lovely flavour of the sprouts on their own.

It was my third or fourth time to Urban Dish in as many years. I drive up from Aurora. I love the small restaurant feel, the family owned and run, tablecloths and candles and nice ambience. Service is always top notch. It is quiet and we can enjoy our conversation unlike some bigger restaurants. Menu is very big on gluten-free and dairy-free which we appreciate. Wish I lived closer I would go way more often. Keep up the good work!

My steak was amazing but my wife’s risotto serving was small. She left hungry and made a sandwich when we got home.

Our food was amazing. We really had an excellent meal. We were so glad we could go to a place and get dairy free options and know that we were actually getting something free of dairy.

The bartender was mixing cocktails in the most annoying manner creating more noise in an already noisy environment something we failed to understand. Urban Dish is a wonderful restaurant we quite enjoy our dining experience there.

Food was excellent, but I only gave 4 stars because although the dining room was almost empty they sat us in a very cramped table for two squeezed between the only other two diners there. The other was the online menu didn't match the menu we were presented. All in all the food was good and I would return.

Hi Mannylou. Thanks for taking time to leave a review! We're happy that you enjoyed your food but sorry you weren't happy with the table. Our lounge is our most requested area so we try to give our reservations the best seats in house. We do appreciate that you would have preferred a table in our dining room and on the larger side...be sure to ask for the benches next time you're in. Thanks for choosing Urban Dish...we value all feedback and look forward to the next time you visit!

Always great food, superb service, and perfect atmosphere to have the best times! Love that the menu changes with the seasons, and that in summer they use items right out of their own garden, not to mention an awesome patio to dine on in the summer!! Love this place...
