    Had a great experience! We went for my dad’s 80th birthday for a small family gathering because it’s more or less in the middle of where we all live in the county. We’ve been before, but they recently overhauled their menu so it was all new to us. Food was excellent and the service was friendly and just right. At the table, several ordered the Rodeo burger and loved it. I had the Electric tacos and they were delicious. Great wine too. Bread pudding for dessert was on point. We’ll be back!

    We choose Urge to celebrate my Mother’s 98th birthday. I made reservations requesting inside booth seating. When we arrived there was no one inside to seat us for 5 minutes. When the person arrived I said we had reservations and she said “go seat yourself to the left”. She did bring menus and asked what we wanted to drink, the drinks arrived pretty quickly. However, our server came maybe ten minutes later to take our orders. We then waited 40 minutes (for a party of five) for our orders, still nothing. My daughter asked at the front again, the person was rude to her and said she’d tell our waiter. We waited an addition 10 minutes before our orders came. The waiter never once came back to ask how our meals were or if we wanted anything more to drink etc. I again had to go up to the front to ask for our bill. Not to mention the incredibly difficult pathway for my Mother to get into the restaurant on a walker, it was an accident waiting to happen for the handicapped! I will never go back.

    My party and I attended the urge blackout night and can’t say enough great things about it. I feel like the restaurant is getting back to its old self again like it was when they first opened and would love to see more of these events in the future the wait staff was awesome and everything we ordered was correct and on time will definitely be considering going to more dinners and lunches. I also want to include the ambience with the female guitar player. She was terrific, and would love to see her more and more perform.

    Since the Barrel Room closed you can no longer order from their menu too which limits the menu considerably. Sad.

    I was expecting that a niche Gastropub would have a much nicer ambiance. It decor and layout made it feel more like a family diner. While the food was fairly good, it was not what I would have expected, especially for the price.

    The food was very good, and the patio was nice and shady. The service was slow and we had to ask multiple times for our drink orders. And the bill was wrong, including items we didn’t order. The waiter fixed the bill before we paid.

    We all ordered the tri-tip dinner. The meal comes with the tri-tip steak, mashed potatoes and vegetable. The meal also comes with your choice of soup or salad. They asked if we wanted the salads to come out before the meal and we said “yes”. It took forever for the salads to come out and then maybe 2-3 mins after they brought the salads, the rest of the meal came out. Normally there would be at least 10 mins between courses. When the meal came out, the vegetable were all super undercooked. While the meat was decent, we will not be ordering that again.

    Food was mediocre, ordered a sandwich, and there was barely any meat on it and the french fries look like they came out of a frozen bag. It was all out of all that just really mediocre and exciting. Nobody was in the restaurant, so I’m not sure why the service was mediocre as well. We also got some food from barrel room, which is their sister restaurant, and the food was cold. We had to return it and get a new one brought out. Ysed to love this place not sure what’s going on. It’s too bad.

    Urge is always a good experience. I had the pig and pear pizza and it was great. My husband had the burger and it was overcooked but the garlic frys were terrific. Our friend has a gluten allergy and they accommodated her with no problem.

    We were disappointed as we thought that Urge would have brunch. Most places that do brunch it is until 2 or 3 pm, but come to find out it’s only served from 9am-12pm. That isn’t very much time for it, especially on a holiday like Mother’s Day. I did like the picture area that was put together for Mother’s Day.

    Excellent! Always love coming here, can never go wrong. Excellent beer choices!!! Great wine! The food is so good, reasonable prices. I love that you can order from 2 menus (winery next door and the Urge) since i believe they use the same kitchen. Love the Pig and Pear pizza, i always seem to get! So glad they survived the pandemic closures!

    Waiter was very nice and patient while we talked at the table for an hour before ordering our meals. I had to ask the wait staff to bring plates for the appetizers, ketchup for my burger and fries and silverware for the dessert. Then that waiter forget to bring the silverware so I had to ask another associate. Not a busy night on Thursday, should I expect slow service? Anyway, the beer selection is good and the food always hits the spot, it won't be my last time there.

    Very nice ambiance outside on the patio and it was nice to be able to choose from both Urge and Barrel Room menus. Server was great. The Brussels sprouts were so good! Only negative was my burger was very undercooked. I recommend ordering well-done.
