We have enjoyed the Urban Eatery on many occasions. Outdoor dining is our preferred place but it was too hot and too humid on Father’s Day for that so we opted for inside seating. My wife had the peach French toast which is a scrumptious dessert for breakfast. I had the Mexican scramble; it was spicy and wonderful. Our waiter was incredibly attentive, in a nice way. The manager checked with us on the way out to see how our dining experience was.

The food and service is always top notch.

There is plenty of parking in the adjacent parking structure.

The garden salad with added salmon was delicious. Friendly and efficient service in a festive atmosphere. Location can't be beat, across from Lake Calhoun.

The brunch meal was delicious. The food at Urban Eatery is always so well done. I ordered a spicy Bloody Mary and was slightly let down by the taste and spice level.

We love to walk to Urban Eatery from our condo. Sitting outside overlooking the lake is such a nice backdrop. The food is consistently good. Good wine list!

I dine here often but was disappointed with my meal this time. The Thai beef salad had an unsavory mix of greens way too heavy on mint and another bitter green I couldn't identify. Greens portion was also skimpy.

I think our only disappointment was the starter of Guacamole. Have never seen an order that small for $10.50- $11.

Urban Eatery was one of my favorite places to go. The food was always good and priced right. The service good. The last two times the service has been horrible. We made a reservation and asked for patron seating. They said they do not reserves (understandable), however, when we asked to put our names on the list they were rude and they never came to ask if we now wanted the patio. In addition the service when we asked to split the bill (she need inquired). She seems harassed. The previous time was the same dismissive attitude of the wait staff.

Hostess was horrible not sure why she was hired for this position but she was very unfriendly and rude! Waiter was equally rude and poor attitude. If I owned this restaurant I would fire host and waiter we had Friday evening they hurt the restaurant.

While the food was good, the pork chop that was good flavor was a bit under cooked for my taste. We were sat in the bar area at a high table which made conversation a bit hard. I would have liked the option of picking the temp of my pork and given the quantity if food prices may be a bit high.

Checked it out during Restaurant Week. They food was fab, service very good but drinks expensive. If we didn't have the dinner special restaurant too high in price, not sure I would make the trip. 😞

My sister and I visited Urban Eatery for dinner during Restaurant Week and were absolutely delighted with everything: the ambiance, the wait staff, the food, the prices; everything! My sister had their homemade pasta and pesto, which was delicious. I had a salmon dish that was very tasty. The appetizers were delicious. We had roasted Brussels sprouts. Also, the warm apple crisp with vanilla ice cream and the chocolate brownie were both delicious. I will be back.

Alex was a terrific server. He knew the menu and could explain each dish well. He was always on top of everything. He and the other staff made it a wonderful experience.

The food was pretty good. The Bloody Mary bar could have had more of a variety. Especially if they want to compete with some of the “newer” BM bars now that have waffles/wings, etc.
