This was the first time we had eaten at Urban Eatery. Our waiter, Charles, was friendly, efficient, helpful and very knowledgeable. The food was fantastic! My friend is a chef and kitchen manager, and extremely discerning when eating out at other restaurants. He said everything was cooked to perfection, flavorful and just outstanding! We will definitely return!

I took a group of six for a business dinner to Urban Eatery. They offer online reservation which is great. We went on a week night, so it was not crowded at all. We received remarkable service and the staff were very friendly. Their food and drink menu is diverse and nicely selected. The location, in the Calhoun beach club, speaks for itself!

The wait staff was so good, always there just when needed. The food we ordered (beef kabob and grilled salmon) was cooked and seasoned beautifully and there were a good number of different things to choose from. There were different flavor profiles so you could find something to satisfy everyone. I would personally like to see a larger wine selection by the glass and more dairy-free options. Overall the experience was very nice and we would definitely go again.

I went for restaurant week and started with their crispy brussel sprouts. These were good with a balsamic glaze and had the perfect amount of crunch. For my entree I had the bed kebobs and wow were these good! The meat and veggies were perfectly cooked and the slaw they sat on was delicious. For dessert I had the Apple crisp, which was good but not as memorable as the entree. Expired to go again for the full menu!

Food was dry and charged 50cents for a small side if salsa that I asked for because the chips were so dry. I had the salmon burger that had no mayo or very little sauce and it was super dry. Service was slow but waitress was very nice and friendly. Coffee tasted old like it had been sitting there a long time. Still can’t get over being charged for salsa when they should have put some as it is on the plate with the massive amount of chips they give you!

A standard American restaurant. We enjoyed the drinks. The food was ok to good, except the lobster ravioli who had a too fishy and not fresh character. Over-attentive service. The coffee was bad.

Menu more impressive than execution. Daily special was Pho and came recommended by server--it was fair. Broth was more like standard beef stock and less like Vietnamese beef stock which has more clove for one thing. Pork tenderloin in broth was great and medium, beef slices (sirloin?) were overcooked and shrimp was mostly like frozen already peeled and deveined.

Chicken liver pate was good but could have used more of either cognac or brandy.

Fresh fruit Napoleon was just ok. Pastry cream did not taste like "full" pastry cream.

Great coffee. Fabulous service.
