Good service and great food! I’ve been before and I’ll be back again.
Consistently good service and food. I appreciate the attention to detail and service even when they are busy.
Great location with outside seating. Services is always great and the staff is friendly. Urban has the best Lamb burgers!!
I’ve been to Urban Eatery before and had great experiences. Tonight was not one of those times. We started off at the bar, where the bartender was impolite and seemed impatient. We hadn’t even been greeted or seen a menu when he walked over and asked, “what do you want?” We eventually were moved outside after a lengthy wait, despite many open tables. Our food also took a very long time even though we ordered simple items. We asked for some items to be added to one of the orders, which the server wrote down. However, the ingredients didn’t show up, and we had to make additional requests. Overall, the experience could have been a lot better.
Great brunch and outdoor seating area is very pleasant.
This time we enjoyed the restaurant week menu, but will be back for their tasty small bites and Happy Hour!
Good food, very noisy. 6:00 reservation to accommodate western Wisconsin friend meant we expected the noise level to build throughout the meal, but it was almost impossible to hear each other by 7:00. We enjoyed the food and beverage options and our server was just the right level of attentive. I don’t care for outside seating next to a busy street, but that’s what we would try next time.
While I thought the menu was short on options (maybe just restricted in choices relative to what I was expecting), the food was high quality, and the service even better.
Better than TGI Friday's, not on par with the nicer restaurants in town. Nice patio if it isn't rush hour (traffic noise).
My wife and I went for restaurant week. I had a late lunch at work and really didn't want much to eat. I was going to order the nachos and my wife wanted to get one of the deals off the restaurant week menu. Our server told us that the system wouldn't allow it. The only way for my wife to get the restaurant week special would be if I ordered an entree. I could understand if we both showed up and wanted to split a restaurant week meal, but that wasn't the case. No where on the restaurant week menu did it state that if you were dining with other people, they needed to buy an entree. The server said I could get a pizza, salad, etc. I chose the Caesar salad they have on their menu, "Small Caesar" -- though was told they would need to charge me more money in order to make it an "entree sized portion", though this isn't even listed on the menu. Overall, the food was really good but the waiter's excuse to not allow us to order the food we wanted was disappointing. He saw that we were upset when ordering and before leaving, gave us a $10 off coupon (good for orders of $50+) for if we come back, but because of this experience, we aren't planning on it.
I visited for restaurant week and it was a blast! Great view of lake calhoun and delicious ribs!
great outdoor ambiance with gorgeous views of Lake Calhoun.
Food is very good. Drinks are very good. Service was slow to start especially with the small amount of customers this night, but service improved to great after initial slow start. Probably not the servers fault. Other visits have also had great service.
Went here for a girls night out and it was a great spot! I would recommend the outdoor seating. I ordered the shrimp tacos and they were just ok, the other girls had awesome meals. Great service and an even better price! Very affordable.
I loved our waiter! He made sure I got avocado toast, even though it wasn't on the menu. :)
Our server was outstanding. Sorry I didn't catch her name. I ordered the Proper Burger medium rare, and it came well overcooked. She quickly apologized and a fresh burger was prepared. Everyone else's meals were great. We sat outdoors; Lake Street is pretty noisy, but I guess we knew that.
For being there early, service was slow. It took an inordinate amount of time and multiple requests for our food to arrive. The apology was delivered with an f-bomb, which completely negated the impact of the acknowledgement of the delay. Chose this place because it was convenient for my visiting relatives (who are in their 70s). Can't imagine going back.
We sat on the patio and had a great view of the lake. Service was very attentive and food was excellent.
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.
Food was great, nice variety and service was also great
Food was excellent and atmosphere was nice. Service was very slow, despite only 1 other party in the back seating area.
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.
Awesome food and service! Our waitress was sooo nice!!
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.
Great service, food, and patio setting. Right across the street from Lake Calhoun!
The food at Urban Eatery was great; however, service was pretty slow and the bar tender barley acknowledged us while we were waiting.
Definitely check open table for reservation status, we usually can get reservation quickly.❤️
Good restaurant for groups which include vegans. It was very dark and noisy.
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.
Great energy and friendly staff. Food was wonderful.
Food was awesome. Loved our server too!
Always great service and food. Steak salad flavorful and healthy. Love this place!
First time attending had great service food was very tasty!!
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.
