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

the server was lovely, always there, never intrusive
the salmon dish with perogi was exceptional
we added broccoli and it was a perfect compliment to the perogi
the rubato crisp was perfect

i would add a dish of Perogi and some greens , spinach maybe

Great service. Ate outside in a beautiful day and had a great view of the lake. Bees were an issue but not much you can do about that. We will be back.

No covid measures in place, no hand sanitizer, no mask, etc.
French toast was burnt and undercooked, so really wet and then on the other hand burnt at edge.

The shashuka came with one piece of pita and we were charged extra for the second piece. We had even held the sausage. Strange to be charged $2 extra for a piece of pita when we only received one. The sauce was good but the eggs were hard.

The micro green salad had a range of citrus in it in large chunks with a. Cheese that was too strong for the micro greens.

Maybe if you haven’t eaten around as much as I have you wouldn’t notice these things, but it definitely was more like a mid 2 /3 rating out of 5.

I have long wanted to try this restaurant and overall, really enjoyed my dining experience. We got there a little late in the day, which was by design and the place was not busy as a result.

The food was very good. Great dishes with great flavor. Service was sufficient, but given that there were very few people left dining (there were more at the bar than at tables) I would have thought we would have gotten a little more expediency with the check and service overall. I found myself waiting a few times and unsure exactly why.

I offer only as feedback for consideration, in case it was a staffing issue. Overall, it was a really good meal and a beautiful location. Server was friendly. I hope to return.

Service was excellent, very attentive, and our server was really fun. The brunch menu had a lot to choose from, and we appreciated the help from our server. Everyone ordered something different: shakshuka, shrimp tacos, turkey burger. Good ice tea. It was nice to sit outdoors, regardless of the traffic.

Weekend brunch @Urban Eatery, whether sitting outside (there is some noise from W. Lake Street, but the Lake Bde Maka Ska view is perfect) or indoors, the staff will take great care of you—attentive, professional service. Menu items are consistently yummy—my friends and I really enjoy this uptown resto.

Would have been nice to have more of expected selections from the past, as the menu was simple to begin with. But, service is always VERY good, as is the food. Sit outside! The lake is beautiful. Great place to unwind.

Urban Eatery has a great ambiance, and food and service were great. Celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday; she got a nice apple strudel / ice cream dessert on the house. Noise level was non-existent with very few guests in attendance. The restaurant observes all CDC recommendations from frequent disinfecting to mask wearing of staff at all times. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys great food in stylish atmosphere.

We always have an amazing experience at Urban Eatery. The food is spectacular, great atmosphere and service is unmatched. Humus, Thai steak salad, Beef kabobs and Napoleon for dessert were excellent. You truly feel special when dining at Urban Eatery. We will definitely come again.
