Restroom was filthy. Nearly had to beg to get more coffee. The food was good but not as good as the price says it is... way overpriced!

Urban Steam Bistro is a wonderful restaurant with great food. Me and my friends came in for lunch and we had a great experience. The burgers there were very good and the service was even better. The lemon cake was the best I have ever had and the latte was amazing. Highly recommend.

Had reserved through Open Table for outside dining but when we arrived did not have a table outside for us. Also did not have one in the main dining area. We agreed to be seated in the lounge area. Kind of a Seinfeld episode - they know how to take a reservation but do not know how to keep a reservation. The service was good and the food was excellent and plentiful. Will go back.

The reservation process was simple through Open Table. The service was friendly and attentive, the food was so so delicious! Everything was served quickly and piping hot! We had Easter brunch and everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The restaurant is located in an area of high homeless population so just be aware. No issues at all, but everyone in our party commented on that observation. Definitely check it out - we will go back!

Delicious breakfast. We had the Buddha Bowl and the Avocado Smashed. Both were great and huge portions. If I lived in The Springs I'd be a regular.

We had a great breakfast!! Very delicious. Everyone was energetic and very service oriented. Our made to order coffees were yummy, however the drip coffee refills were a bit bitter. The waffles and the fenelli toast were very good.

We'll be back!

Plenty of open seating options. Server was excellent, but at least three other employees were not wearing masks. There was some kind of altercation in front of the store that involved some employees and others; not a great impression on this visit.

Amazing brunch place. We had Sunrise burrito and egg Benedict. Both were incredibly tasty. Also got their “unanticipated cucumber” cocktail and it was really great too.

We visit Urban Steam at least 2x a month and I make reservations at least 2-3 days in advance. I asked for a table not by the back door but then that was the only table available. Obviously they don't read the requests or if they do, they don't care. Most times the food is great but they can't make soft scrambled eggs and the waitress ignored the spilled water on the table. I really hope this place is not another victim of the "success syndrome."

We enjoyed our Sunday breakfast waffles and the variety offered. It’s hard to find a place where breakfast and lunch fare are both offered which fits our family’s preferences. We hope to return and try some of the other unusual pairings. I think service was a bit slow because they’re stretched while we get closer to a normal crowd being served. Soon, they’ll have plenty of practice!
