Urban Eatery offers a warm and comfortable dining experience overlooking the beautiful Lake Calhoun. Urban Eaterys menu is approachable with ingredients that are Fresh and Local. We have taken traditional favorites and added a twist, like Smoked Chicken Nachos, Roasted Beets Salad. Our Lamb Burgers are AMAZING.

We love everything about Urban Eatery! The food is fresh and delicious. The service is always perfect. And the ambiance is cool and relaxed. The blackened salmon is my favorite. And my boyfriend loves the beef stroganoff. Burgers and salads are great too. You can’t go wrong with anything on their menu!

What a great little spot to eat. Bar atmosphere while sitting in a booth made t like we were in our own world,. We started with the chicken nacho's which were mildly spicy with a great chicken flavor. for dinner we had the Steak Kabob's and again the flavor was amazing! We will for sure be back. Allow time to park as it spaces are limited.

Everything we had was delicious... the smoked pork chop was fantastic and just the right amount of spicy. I would go back just to have the apple crisp!

Stopped in for a beverage and some food on a spring like day. Had wonderful service! Wasn't sure what to order and just wanted to enjoy a beverage to start. Server was very attentive and checked in without being too assertive while I was just relaxing. Ordered the pre-fixe menu for Restaurant week. Has the brussel sprouts in pomegranate molasses that was wonderful. Shrimp tacos were very spicy and tasty too. For dessert tried the apple crisp which was enjoyable. Nice experience and had a great time people watching while everyone was out and about walking around the lake.

We came for the Valentines dinner. It was our first time here. We loved the look, the lighting and the view. Our waiter was very good and loved how he could explain the menu. The 4 course meal was great and the food was fantastic. I even tried hummus and it was great! We really enjoyed ourselves and the complimentary valet parking was definitely a plus.

Overall the food was fantastic. (We had the Valentines day prix fixe menu). The drinks (specialty cocktails and a suggested wine pairing) were not great which is disappointing because they were more expensive than other similar restaurants.

Since this was Valentines Day it was a fixed menu, something Open table failed to mention during the reservation process. The tuna starter was really good and one plate would have been enough for 2, a very generous and tasty portion-I almost licked the plate. The wild rice mushroom soup was enjoyed by my partner and I had the beet salad, I would order both again. The filet with Duchess potatoes was a disappointment(especially since it was supposed to be a 9.00 adder and we were billed an additional 10 each). The 3 slices of filet were over herbed and the meat was not that flavorful. The duchess potatoes were dry and tasteless. Wish we had ordered the sea bass. The chocolate dessert was fabulous and our waiter brought us another portion!!

The food was very good, as usual, but it was a very busy night due to the Loppet event, so service was slower and less attentive than I remember from previous visits.

I was lured in by a Groupon. The service, (bartender), was excellent. Very attentive. We had the guacamole, which was very good. I then had the Thai steak salad. The steak was a perfect medium rare. It had a wonderful rub on it. The salad was very aromatic with mint, cilantro, lettuce and a few other things. The dressing was a nice light vinaigrette with a bit of fish sauce to brighten up the flavor. Yumm...
My wife had the Moroccan egg scramble. Very unusual flavors and very good. The sausage was also very unexpected flavor wise. A really good dish if you want something more than the usual egg options. The decor is very sophisticated and warm. I am going back! A++++

Food was pretty good. Waiter was good especially when a meal didn’t come. We got free dessert and the meal taken off. The hostess was not very friendly when we checked in and when clearing our dishes. Might go back.

They have valet!!! Great neighborhood place. If u don’t care about food and just need a nice little place to eat/ drink and don’t care that the menu NEVER changes then meet friends, take girls, watch football alone or whatever. It’s easy and since valet starts at 5 pm.... Service was a solid good. Just has NO personality.
