Great service & exceptionally good food. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised at the high quality of food served. Lettuce wraps are incredibly good!
Awesome staff. Covid safe environment!!!!!
Great atmosphere, tasty food with a wide variety, and wonderful staff.
Great variety of food choices. Beer, wine and cocktail selection is excellent. Fairly priced. Our server, Chuck, was perfectly attentive. Our food arrived quickly. We had a great evening there with our daughter and her boyfriend.
Great brunch. We both had the egg sandwich. Delicious. Lindsay is the best server around!
Great service and great food! I really appreciated the desserts for my birthday. The overall experience was wonderful!
Their brunch is amazing. I would highly recommend!
Sat outside on a beautiful autumn day. Service impeccable as always. Shared two things: nachos and flatbread. Both delicious.
My husband and I tried this place out for the first time and we loved it!! The atmosphere was great the host was hilarious (which we later found out was the owner). Really great service and tasty food! I got the grilled shrimp tacos and did not regret it!! 👌🏻😋
Great service, food was also great.
Good food and blody mary, I would go back there for brunch.
I chose UE for my birthday dinner with friends and everyone had a great time. It wasn't very busy which is to be expected post COVID-19 anywhere you dine out but we had space for 6 girls and were very comfortable. The manager checked in often and even asked who's birthday it was to confirm I was happy. Very nice. We had a few apps: chicken Nachos and the Hummus plate. Both were okay, not extraordinary. Main courses were on point though. I'll post a few pics. The chef really cared about presentation! And it was all delicious. The bartender can mix a damn good dirty martini and he even made us a round of buttery nipples on the house! Lastly, they let us stay well over 2 hours and even though the kitchen was closed the chef whipped up a Sebastian Joe's ice cream treat for me with a candle. So awesome. Didn't get a pic of that because we ate it, lol. Good times. We'll be back for sure!;
Amazing & knowledgeable service, perfect ambiance, and the BEST food in Minneapolis! Guac/pico, lamb burger, and ribs— would recommend it all! Every time we come to Urban it is a great experience.
Paige, Jay, and Chuck were fantastic. I will definitely be back again and again.
We ate on the patio. Weather was beautiful service was wonderful food was phenomenal
We’ve been to Urban Eatery many times and have never been disappointed. Perfect patio restaurant by the lake. We’ll be back again and again.
Great meal. Sat inside at a window hightop. Ribs never disappoint. Salmon and pierogis unique combo and delicious. Always our go-to and always wonderful!
Urban Eatery is like our home away from home. With COVID, we have missed being there for over 4 months! I have been a little anxious about going out to a restaurant, but finally went back to our favorite place on Friday night. We made reservations online for 6pm, hoping to sit outside. We understood we took our chances on being outside, and were prepared to sit inside. Outside was full, but we sat in the bar and I felt fine as they have no chairs along the bar. They are seating people along the windows and the booths, every other table. Guests are to wear a mask until they sit at their table. The wait staff all had masks on. I felt very safe and was not concerned that I would be in a jammed restaurant with people too close. We were so happy to get back there to see Chuck and Jay.
Food was as good as usual....although, we had the brussels sprouts that weren't as good as they used to be. They were whole and halved sprouts that were still kind of raw. I liked it better when they sliced up the sprouts so the leaves are crispy. The sauce on the brussels is delicious! So glad you're open. We'll be back!
The traffic up and down the street was so loud we had to pause our conversation several times as we couldn’t hear!
Amazing food!!! We got the grilled shrimp tacos with sweet potato fries + house made ranch (definitely upgrade to these fries — YUM!!!) and the BBQ ribs. Both were divine!!! Service was awesome; very attentive, friendly, and most importantly — clean. Will definitely go back!
This was our first visit. The service was excellent and the food was very good.
Happy they are open again. Everyone is doing a great job making you feel safe! The food was delicious and the servers are great!
The shrimp tacos are the best, try the hummus and the salmon too!
So glad to be back at Urban Eatery after a 4-month hiatus! Great to see our bartender, servers and neighbors returning for good times and great food. Patio dining, although on W Lake Street, offers a fantastic view of Lake Bde Maka Ska. Dogs are welcome on the patio so family dining can include our best friends too. Steak salad was amazing—fresh greens perfectly dressed, the steak grilled precisely as ordered. Wonderful to be at my home away from home at the Calhoun Beach Club. Hello summer—I'll be back!
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!
Excellent location. Great food, Excellent service. We will be back.
Friendly people and delicious food!
Food was good. Service was nothing better than average. Probably will not return as it just was not anything special.
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.
Lots kids in there when we were there...not our thing when paying a lot for evening out.
Service exceptional. Ribs, broussal sprouts were very good.
Always good food. We went during restaurant week. Bar area noisy because of large groups. We were seated in the dining area which was very quiet. Free valet during dinner. Good time.
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!
We had wonderful experience at Urban Eatery. Food was divine. We had shrimp tacos and beef stroganoff. Both dishes tasted delicious. Definately will go again.
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.
Love this restaurant.
Very nice Valentine's Day four course meal! Thanks
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.
