Urban Tide Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt Regency for the ACG convention and were THRILLED with Urban tide. Not only was the food outstanding, but the cocktails were unique and tasty! I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are staying at the Hyatt, or just looking for a top-notch meal experience!
I think the only reason I don't give this place 5 stars is because nobody is perfect. However, I came here while visiting Orlando and what a find! I would imagine it's usually very busy and loud in this very large restaurant with a club type atmosphere, nestled in a Hyatt hotel. But I caught it on a slow night during the week, so probably had special attention. The cheddar biscuits are to die for! I doubt they could be better elsewhere. The appetizer I had was brisket in a skillet with queso fresco and tomato, and little corn muffin tops on the side. It was large enough for an entree. But the entree of salmon, mashed yucca, and asparagus was just as wonderful. Everything was savory and had a great combination of flavor. A dessert that came with the special menu was a dark chocolate covered mini cake with peach and chocolate mousse inside. The meal was a gastronomic delight. The service was great, but again, a very slow night. Prices were average for the meal, but the Magical menu was the best, with a 3 course meal for about the same price as an entree on the regular menu and the portions are the same. A must try for sure. If I dare visit Orlando again, Urban Tide will be on the list.
I ordered a half dozen raw oysters that the server said were brought in from Connecticut. For an appetizer costing a whopping $18, I expected some rather spectacular oysters! The ones that were delivered to the table were disappointingly tiny, one so small that I was sure it was the residue left after the oyster was removed from the shell. I pointed it out to the server, not wanting to be critical of her because she was an excellent waitress. But I mentioned it so that she could tell the chef. Minutes later, she did return with three extra oysters, but still very small in size. My mom and I each had a salad that was delicious, but everything we ordered (except the cheddar biscuits) was pretty much overpriced.
This joint was in our hotel. If it wasn't for the fact that the managaer and waitress were so nice I would have given it a lower rating. Food was horrible. Sent back a dish (chicken too dry). And another friend sent their back as food came out cold. I feel bad leaving a lower review as the place did try their best to take care of us but even with excellent service if food isn't right it's hard to praise. I will say this, desserts are limited BUT there is another place I hotel that serves amazing desserts and the waiter and manager did bring us an array of desserts from this other place. So they do try hard to make things right. Might give them one more chance.
We were in town for a convention and staying at this hotel (Hyatt Regency Orlando), and we chose this restaurant for convenience to have lunch with a local relative. We did not want to wander too far because time was constrained, so we chose this place not having high expectations. However, we were pleasantly surprised.
It is located a level down from the lobby in a quiet corner with a view out to the garden and pool. The offerings are imaginative and tasty, and the service efficient and attentive. We had a great lunch.
We had a business lunch and a business dinner here. The food is well prepared, but it just seems unimaginative--that is true of Florida in general, though. The lunch salads were good. For dinner, I had shrimp and grits, but it lacked a light touch--the cheese was just sprinkled on the grits like breakfast grits. The service was good, and the value was pretty good for a hotel restaurant. We were surprised that the restaurant was half empty for dinner, given that it's a 1600-room hotel.
Wonderful for dining with friends...Quiet with attentive but non-intrusive service and wonderful food. We rarely dine in a hotel's restaurant opting instead for neighborhood jewels. This was a wonderful surprise in Orlando's Hyatt Hotel next to the Convention Center
The restaurant was expensive with a very unusual menu. We had the deep fried whole fish for two. Plenty of food but not a very attractive presentation and we did not enjoy the meal. We had a challenge making a selection from the menu, so we settled on the fish. I suggest you look at the menu before your visit.
Because it was the builder's show, it was a challenge making a last minute reservation at the other restaurants, we settled on this restaurant. Should have know better!
The wait staff were great, super friendly and quick to ensure we were happy. The reason for a lower review on the food is the crab cakes were very dry and overall mealy with crumbs/dough and there was cilantro in the octopus, which I can't stand. Otherwise an excellent experience!
Oh, and another thing, if your not staying at the hotel the parking garage charges $22 so keep that in mind.
The food and the service were outstanding. No complaints whatsoever. Server was great. The food was brought to the table, as ordered, in a timely manner and hot. The atmosphere was conducive to a business conversation. Tables were well spaced for privacy. My only complaint was that I found it too pricey for a lunch.
Wow! Every single dish [of 6] was perfect!!!!!!
I highly recommend Urban Tide. We had been when it was Napa and that was one of the worst dining experiences I had in years. But I'm always on the lookout for great seafood so I gave UT a shot - with high trepidation. And it was wonderful.
We had the Plantain Crusted Diver Scallops, Florida Atlantic Swordfish with Maine lobster bisque, the Grilled Bread Pudding [and I usually avoid Bread pudding, but this dish was incredible!], the Intense chocolate mousse [also full of powerful flavors, wonderful] - but the show stopper was the Smoked Fettuccini Pasta. Absolutely fantastic!
BUT - and here's the only [yet very big] negative - several of these dishes are NOT on the regular menu, only the Magical Dining.
As much as I really loved the food, I see this as simple bait & switch! And I really dislike the practice.
Yes, I'll go back; everything was so good, and there's lots more to try. Hopefully the Magical Dining items will make their way into the menu in the meantime.
fyi, regular menu prices were quite fair.
