We’ve been here twice—loved it both times. Our waitress Alexis was outstanding! Such a great restaurant.

Our server was wonderful; she was relaxed and yet attentive. She made the small changes in our menu items as requested. The food was delicious and it didn't take long to get it after we ordered. Try the Brussels Sprouts and homemade hummus w/veggies. The vegan/vegetarian burger was delicious and so was the beet salad and apple crisp. Very high quality ingredients, flavorful and attractively presented. I love coming here for happy hour, too. They have a new house wine and it was delicious, too.

We explained when making our reservations that we needed to be out by 7 to make it to a play. The communication was amazing, the hostess knew when we checked in, as did the waitress and they made sure that our schedule was met. We really appreciated the extra attention that they gave to our table with a busy restaurant to attend to. The food and drinks were delicious also.

Great place to go. Tried the smoked chicken nachos, that alone is worth going back for. My wife had ribs, they were great. I had steak, it was also very good.
Parking is only draw back. Use underground, valet, or park on street. Might have a 2 block walk.
Highly recommend going.

Wonderful evening with my wife. We chose be seated in the main dining room rather than the bar, which was loud - in a fun way.

We were pleasantly surprised to find they have an excellent wait staff and a chef that knows what he's do I by.

Everything was fabulous. But finish with the apple crisp and ice cream!

We can eat healthy if in the mood and more fun and relaxed if in the mood. We go on a regular basis and have never walked away unhappy. Already planning our next visit. The bar area is our favorite!!

The staff was fantastic but we were disappointed that Urban Eatery did not meet our expectations from reading reviews!
Additionally there was an extremely cold draft that hit our table whenever someone entered or exited the restaurant.
The menu had some innovative choices. Our particular selections were not anything special. Neither in presentation nor taste.
The only saving grace for us was the exceptional and friendly service.

Alejandro was our AWESOME server. He was outgoing, attentive, and provided suggestions when we requested him to. His suggestions all turned out great. Very cozy booth to sit in, they reimburse for parking in the nice heated ramp, there’s fantastic cheese curds, beautifully modern decor. We tried a variety of delicious appetizers including the hummus. The apple strudel dessert was just as good as Alejandro assured us it would be. Even the host staff is always friendly here. I’ve been here about 5x, and always appreciate the great food and quick seating.

Nice surprise to visit this spot! I went for restaurant week and was joined by 2 of my daughters. I had the guacamole which was perfect! The smoked pork chop with apple compote (?) - delicious! And finished with a napolean- which was the perfect finish! We were there during happy hour so my girls decided to go with the happy hour appetizers beef sliders, tater tots, pretzels- more than enough food. We also had the happy hour margaritas which were I thought very good for a happy hour margarita. Service was awesome! And a nice view of Lake Calhoun- very relaxed atmosphere!

The appetizers were amazing--we had the guacamole and the brussels sprouts. Mixed drinks and dessert were also exceptional, and our server was wonderful--very responsive, helpful, and friendly. It's a great spot to look out at the lake and the bustling area. The letdown, however, was the entrees. We tried the curry and the pork chop, and both had good flavor, but both were EXTREMELY salty. This was our first visit, and everything else was so good that we'll give it another try. If nothing else, this is a wonderful spot for drinks and apps!

Nicole, the hostess was absolutely vibrant!! Such good conversation and genuinely happy person.
Our waiter, Gabriel was fantastic as well. You could tell he was busy but always made time to chat or help us out.
The food was timely and our bottle of Prosecco and Mojitos were delicious!
We also ordered the Hunmud with Veggies and Guscemole with Tortilla Chips.
The hummus brought me right back to Israel and I wanted to just eat it straight.
Thank you for the great service!!!
