We were there with friends for my Wife’s birthday. First, I’ve never been in a louder restaurant. Couldn’t hear or speak with the hostess. We followed eyes and hand signals. Couldn’t have a conversation with friends at the table without yelling. Didn’t know there was music overhead until I went to bathroom (the quietest place in the restaurant). We were seated at 7:10, and besides water, didn’t have a full first round of drinks to the table before 8:10. Service was slow, some food items were not delivered with dinner, and had to be followed up on with the wait staff.
I will not myself go there, or bring any further guests to Urbano.

Good food and drinks at a reasonable price. Miss the guacamole with Brussels sprouts and pumpkin seeds. Guacamole is just plain now.

My husband and I booked this spot as an early mother’s day dinner. Out of many restaurants in the lehigh valley we chose this one. We hired a babysitter, dressed for the occasion, and headed out to a dinner we were very much looking forward to. Once we arrived we were told that we cannot be seated because they didn’t have room for us. I was shocked... we made a reservation, how could they not have a table for us, isn’t this what reservations are for? The hostess tried to explain it but to me it makes no sense. As someone who works in the service industry you don’t tell someone who made a reservation that you have nothing available for them. If this is an ongoing problem they should have called the reservations ahead of time to let them know they were short staffed and that the restaurant was overbooked. Instead we found out when we arrived that they had nothing for us. I would never recommend this place to eat after something like this. She told us “there was nothing she could do.” which made us even more upset and made us feel like we were the problem and it wasn’t them and their lack of staff. She just kinda shrugged us off like she was way too busy to deal with us. Do not eat here, do not waste your time, your money or your breathe. Luckily we walked up to apollo and got in. They are professional with great food. Don’t waste your time or money at Urbano. Trust me.

Food was below average and not seasoned well. Drinks were not mixed properly. Took about 10 minutes until someone greeted us at our table. All servers had blinders on and did not seem like a team effort like most restaurants. Made us take pictures of dirty menu upon arrival because the barcode was not working. You should have barcodes at every table, not just at entrance. Such a great location, but no attention to detail. Small adjustments could make this place more enjoyable. Poor management/ownership.

Great place as always for a Friday night dinner!
Maybe bring the volume of the music down a bit in the dining room as it is loud and blaring sometimes

Waiter took a long time to serve the table with drinks and food. Pretty restaurant but we wanted to sit outside they don’t allow you to request that in the app so that was a bumper getting there on a nice day having to sit outside.

Service was terrible, even though there were few tables. It took an hour to get nachos and two salads, with no real explanation, apology, or discount on our check. The hostess was also very cold to us. No manager came to apologize for the delay in our food, and the server didn’t even come to offer drink refills. Very strange dining experience. The salad was overpriced, but the nachos were tasty and huge.

Excellent, as always! My companion can’t eat cilantro, which we know is a ridiculous request in a Mexican restaurant but our server didn’t blink an eye. He offered to have some guacamole made without cilantro and guided her to menu items that didn’t include that ingredient. We told him we’d be there awhile to catch up over a pitcher of margaritas (grapefruit brown sugar, yum!) and he managed to be just attentive enough while giving us space. Our first time dining indoors in about a year and we felt safe tucked away in the front corner. We’ll certainly be back!

Nice space and cozy ambiance in downtown Bethlehem. This was my 2nd time visiting - menu is a bit limited and not overwhelmingly original, but the carnitas tacos and chicken enchiladas we ordered were good and arrived quickly.

First time at Urbano on February 27 and it won't be our last! Loved the ambience of the space and I really appreciated the spacing they had between tables for social distancing with COVID restrictions, I definitely felt comfortable eating indoors. The food was delicious from the yummy cocktails (mojito was best I've ever had), the fresh guacamole, and the pollo tacos and pollo quesadilla which I definitely recommend. Our waitress was so nice and attentive which we greatly appreciated (I can't remember her name or I would have mentioned it). Reservations are definitely needed with limited seating. My boyfriend and I will definitely go back, particularly when it gets warmer and we can sit along Main Street. Check out Urbano!

Very bad experience at this restaurant... I believe what happened is there was too much take out for the resturant to handle...we waited almost two hours for our food...my daughter her first course and it was literally inedible.....then the dinners were brought to the table...again..they were serving three people and they brought two dinners because they ran out of what my husband ordered...this was seriously after waiting two hours... I will not return and I question going to any others restaurants owned by this company. I felt horrible for our server.. Nothing was her fault she kept uss updates and apologized so many times and we reassured her that she did nothing wrong.... They were so backed up that people were coming in for takeout and waiting an additional forty minutes past the quoted time...
I know this because unfortunately where we were seated there were constantly five or more people way to close to our table ...

First timers and we were not disappointed! We had the whole place to ourselves. The margaritas were perfect! I got the steak quesadilla which I still cannot stop thinking of! Our server made fresh Guacamole right in front of us. He was polite and very attentive to us, always refilling our waters and chips. Giving us extra napkins through our stay. I didn’t want to leave! Thank you for the best experience we will be back. Covid compliant.
