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

It is a little pricey, but because it is worth it for the food, environment, and service. It is ideal for a first date

Food was good, but a little bit pricey. Sever Justin was mediocre at best. Free valet was inattentive as a few of us stood by the clearly marked station in the cold rain while the two staff huddled in a little office.

Food was not bad, but not that great either. Other than the water server, who was amazing, the rest of the service was really uneven. Appetizers were served and then we ordered. Salads appeared with our dinner vegetables. And before we could finish appetizers and salads our main course was served. Luckily we had a larger table and only 4 people. Otherwise we wouldn't have been able to accommodate all the food suddenly appearing all at once. Won't be returning.

I was really excited about dinning here based on the location and reviews. The setting is truly awesome. We sat outside on the patio. The food was just ok. I had the grilled salmon with quinoa. The salmon was super under cooked and the quinoa was cold. Willing to give it another try due to the location and setting

Service took forever- I would recommend the patio and bar but not the inside restaurant. I remember the food being better, and more presentable. It was my birthday and it was kind of a disappointment. Unfortunate as I live in the neighborhood.

Food was pretty good. Awesome that they have free valet and a dog friendly patio. But offering salsa with my meal and then charging $3 for it is pretty tasteless—especially since corn chips came with my already over priced meal.

Food and service was great! I worked the chicken, it was great but the amount of food I received for the money was not worth it at all. I was the running joke at my table about the amount of food I received, it was a little bit of rice and a small chicken breast.

Had a great experience at the Urban Eatery. The food was fabulous. Both of our meals were prepared perfectly to order. The service was great. Our waiter was professional, yet casual and very relaxed. He was very friendly and made our first visit here very comfortable. The atmosphere was cozy and classy. The only odd thing for us was the parking situation. The way to the restaurant from the parking garage was a bit of a hike and a little confusing. But definitely worth it. We will absolutely be back.

First time to visit this restaurant, which we did on Mother’s Day. Everything was wonderful, but the staff was outstanding! We were immediately greeted very warmly by whom I would assume was the manager and he interacted with us several times, even bringing us a free sample of something that they had almost delivered to our table by mistake. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. We left with big smiles as we enjoyed the positive interactions that we had there. The food was delicious and we enjoyed the choices that were offered. Definitely plan to visit this restaurant again. Only downside was that getting to the restaurant is a bit awkward and confusing and parking seems to be limited. They did have free valet parking though once we did find our way there😊
