It was REALLY great! I was nervous because it was my turn to pick the restaurant and my husband low key will shade me if I choose a dud. This was SO great! Get the beef cheeks and the cheese plate. You'll be happy with both. The bartender made me an awesome sangria and the blue cheese stuffed olives in his martini were EXCELLENT. Two thumbs way UP!

Lunch and Dinner are usually great at Urban Solace. Avoid the Bluegrass brunch. The protein on the brunch dishes, both the Beefcheek Hash and the Hanger Steak Benedict were nearly non-existent. Time for the food to arrive at the table was also painfully slow. All in all with so many good brunch options in North Park, I would suggest going elsewhere on a Sunday morning. Save your visits to Urban Solace for the dinner fare.

Our party of 6 had an amazing time at ‘Blunch’ (bluegrass Sunday brunch.) We started with cheese biscuits and bloody Mary’s then moved onto some of the best tomatoe soup ever eaten, various Benedict’s, hash, and shrimp and grits, and salad. The bluegrass band was excellent and fun. Our server, Todd’s, friendly service rounded out one of the funnest and tastiest Sunday Brunch’s ever. Urban Solace is highly recommended!

Tonight we were incredibly disappointed with our experience. We are confident that our waitress either never placed our entree order or the ticket got lost in the kitchen. We sat patiently for a long time watching countless tables around us getting their dinner and most tables had sat down and ordered after us. When we tried to talk to our waitress about why we had been waiting so long she seemed to have no idea it had been over 40 min since we placed our order. Then the manager came over and tried to tell us the ticket was moved to the front of the line and it only took a long time because we ordered an appetizer. The food finally showed up almost an hour after we ordered it. Honestly if ordering an appetizer means I won’t get my entree in a reasonable timeline I won’t be coming back here. I’ve eaten at this restaurant two times before and never experienced this. It was really frustrating because neither our waitress or the manager apologized for the wait. Instead they made it seem like we caused the problem. We were going to an event tonight so once the food finally came we could barely enjoy it because we had to eat and run. This was really disappointing.

We sat on the outdoor patio. The chairs are metal and really need to have cushions. Additionally, the chairs sit low so it was a little of your childhood all over again, reaching up.

The food was delicious. The combination of flavors was amazing. Our order took a loooonnnnnngggg time to arrive. like over an hour. During that time, other empty tables were occupied, served and emptied.

The patio seating is nice with the heaters but the table was right at the edge of the patio so the two outdoor chairs were cold.

Disappointed this last visit. We went one time before, menu was great, food was really good. This visit, we waited quite a while before someone even came to our table for drink order. Their chicken and dumpling dish was just a small bowl of a few dumplings and a couple chunks of chicken and some overcooked carrots. It was underwhelming. Husband had meat loaf. Not impressed. It was very spicy and dry. Won't be returning.

This was a recommended place and I had high expectations but two out of four of us didn’t care for our food and thought it was meh. The other two were ok with theirs but didn’t rave.

Chicken and dumplings. 2 of us ordered and both of us thought it was going to be more hearty. It was like soup. Had very little chicken and rubbery Dumplings. It’s was seriously meh.

Halibut, diner thought was good.

Duckaroni, diner thought was good.

Root beer was tasty.

Service was great.

Wonderful experience with excellent food & service. We selected the date night special that included a beet salad, sea bass, 2 glasses of wine & bread pudding for desert. We were fortunate to be seated in the back corner of the restaurant which offered a quieter setting than most of the restaurant. I would definitely revisit this restaurant & recommend to friends.

The biscuits are great, love the flavor, same for the dressed-up butter, and as for the smoked tomato jam, OMG! Our pastrami sandwiches on toasted rye the best I have ever had: the meat nice and lean, and the tarragon mustard beat all others, ever, in this combo.

Food was so-so. My eggs Benedict was lukewarm and barely had any hollandaise on it. It wasn't terrible by any means, but I would say it was the worst brunch/breakfast of our week-long trip to San Diego.
