I never write reviews because I am super picky, but this place was WAY beyond our expectations. Great food, great service, really well-done cocktails.

This place did not disappoint! So many wonderful items on the menu, it was so hard to choose. You get so much food for the cost and service was great. I will absolutely be back for my next Brunch when I'm in Colorado Springs.

We had an excellent breakfast at the remodeled Urban Steam. The coffee was wonderful and I enjoyed my Avocado toast. Service was timely and efficient. I thought the music was way too loud; it was hard to converse with my husband. Otherwise a good time.

We were sat right away and drawn into the space with its modern unique design. There were so many delicious options in the brunch menu it took us a a little while to decide what to order. We were all very delighted with our food. I was surprised by the location, but glad we took the risk and tried it! I look forward to going back for brunch so I can try their waffles and hope to check it out for dinner sometime as well. Go check them out!

We went to celebrate a birthday and had a fantastic experience. Although they were quite busy, our server was extremely attentive, patient and friendly. And our drinks and food arrived quickly and everything was delicious. The smoked salmon Benedict is always a favorite (the waffle dishes are great, too!) and the Bloody Mary is hands down the best in town. We love Urban Steam and recommend it to friends and out of town guests all the time.

Only 1 vegan option. The waitress/hostess was pretty inattentive. It was our first meal in Colorado after traveling 16 hours and I was put off by her attitude. I didn't order muxed drinks to keep from inconveniencing her. The waffles were fabulous though.

The menu provides a wide, impressive, well-detailed collection of nutritious choices. The staff was helpful and knowledgeable and more cheerful than many places are these days.
I appreciate having an on-line reservation system that was simple to navigate and did NOT require a password!
The separate eating areas are nicely tailored to different weather conditions, ages and group dynamics.

Service was terrible. We had booked a patio table because we are concerned about Covid. When we arrived I waited inside restaurant, where no one acknowledged me standing there. Finally a man came and said one section of the restaurant was closed, i politely told him we had booked a patio table. He said only “the patio is closed”. (It was not cold or rainy or anything,) He did not offer or suggest anything else, so i said “I guess we’ll eat somewhere else then”. He just said “fine” - and we left. Very unnerving experience.

First, place is too loud, to me it’s not a deal breaker but I prefer quieter experiences. Service was good. Staff was nice and attentive even though they were busy. Food however was very underwhelming. My burger was overcooked (even though I asked for medium) and the avocado toast was drown in balsamic vinaigrette to the point all other flavors were absent. Both dishes were bland. A shame really because I could tell they’re fresh. I don’t think I will be back.
