Always good food and drinks, and typically good service too. My latest visit had us waiting for our food quite a long time, to the point they came out and apologized twice. I would recommend dining here, great spot for date night.

We love Urban Solace! Our server was extremely pleasant, giving us advice on all of our selections. It’s been a favorite for years, nothing has changed.

Wonderful time at Urban Solace. We went for my husband’s birthday dinner. We brought our 11 month old and they had a nice table and high chair waiting for us. Our baby loved the food and outdoor lights and we did too. Service was excellent.

Dinner here is not cheap, but you get what you pay for, and the food and service were superb. Spinach soup, calamari, biscuits, arugula salad with tempura avocado, sea bass, and duckaroni were all delish.....and real cocktails!

Arrived promptly before 1pm. Didn't receive food until about 2:30pm. Yes, over 1 hour wait, and no, not even the slightest exaggeration for this wait time. We had a large table (about 10 people) but the restaurant had mostly cleared out by 1:30pm. The portion of the food (beef hash) was mostly just filled with potatoes. Not worth $15 + tax + tip.

Pleasure seeing my friends for afternoon brunch which made the stay enjoyable, but food and service were totally lacking.
