Urbane Ratings and Reviews
Server was very good but the food was really slow coming out. Had fish and chips which was not that good. Fries were cold and had to much garlic. Also not a very big portion for the price. Salmon was average not much flavor. Overall for the price was not to impressed.
The food at Urbane is good, not great, nicely presented, and the small wine selection is carefully vetted with a range of options. The biggest drawback is the pacing of the food...kitchen staff brought entrees and tried to remove starters while we were still working on them and no amount of suggestion that the entrees be returned to the kitchen until the customers were ready for them seemed to be effective. In addition, they stood with the entrees in hand until we relocated starter plates so they could place the entrees on the table. Please alert kitchen (and wait) staff that customers drive the pace of their eating, not the desires of the kitchen staff.
Urbane was a great place to go before our Broadway show at the Paramount. The burger with the bacon jelly was delicious! The server was fairly busy but she was able to accommodate getting our check quickly so that we would be on time for our show. The crab cakes and poutine were also a hit with my boyfriend!
Much of our food was mis-represented by the menu. I ordered the lacinato kale salad which was a baby kale salad, and could not taste the truffle that was advertised. My friend ordered the chicken entree which advertised baby carrots, but there was one tiny little carrot no bigger than half of a pinky finger, and was kind of shriveled up. My one shot of Johnny walker scotch cost $15, and it wasn't even a double. The service was great, and very convenient to the Paramount Theatre. Nice ambiance, they need to work on having menu description match what is served up.
Very expensive for what you get. We had brunch and ordered one of the egg dishes. For $16 it was a very small portion of eggs, one piece of toast, and a plateful of potatoes (a cheap way to fill up a plate). Add to that that there's very little parking near there and we spent $11 to park, it was a very expensive, okay but not great, meal with so little food we went home and ate again. (And we are not big eaters.) Definitely a captive audience pricing situation--near theaters and attached to a hotel, so people will pay for the location. We won't be going back.
We went here for lunch before a matinee at the Paramount with my 9 yr old daughter. The service was efficient and they got us served and out in time for our show. The food was mostly good, however we ordered their tomato soup which was too spicy for me and my daughter. The menu didn't mention that it was spicy. Still, the rest of the food was very good. One slightly irritating point is that they automatically add 20% gratuity to the bill, which wasn't immediately obvious. Still, I'd go back again for a pre or post show meal.
Wonderful atmosphere and ambiance the food was great and unique. The service was decent our waitress at first seemed inattentive but we quickly realized it seemed she was flying solo. The support staff were excellent explaining our charcuterie to us and asking us if we had any questions ( I wish I would have got her name she was great.) Overall great experience for the price and location. Thus a visit is a must!!
This restaurant practices farm to table. The dishes are creative and very good. Though not extensive, the wine list is local and pairs very well with the chefs creations. I definitely recommend it for anyone staying at the Hyatt hotel and locals looking for something special. Try the local Barbera... Not as soft as the Italians, but it works very well with the spiciness of the duck.
Had a great stay at the Hyatt Olive 8 and ate at Urbane 3 times - once for dinner and twice for breakfast. Had really delicious food and excellent service each time! Creative menu that makes use of fresh local ingredients. I loved the salmon and hubby said his duck was very good. Nice charcuterie plate starter. Breakfasts were excellent. Great spot within close walking distance to the Paramoint Theater. Very friendly and efficient service.
Prior to dining at Urbane, I was unaware of their 20% surcharge that is automatically added to the final bill. While I understand the restaurant trying to comply with the minimum wage increases in Seattle, I was a little incensed by this automatic assumption, and the percentage that is assumed.
For one, my company has a 15% tip maximum allowance for business meals. Typically, I add to that, depending on the service. In addition, I tip on a sliding scale depending on wine and alcoholic beverages added to the bill. This sweeping surcharge caught me off guard, as the meal itself was not cheap.
The food was just "okay", I would not go back for it, and the service was just "okay". Our server brought a dessert menu before we were finished with our main course, and asked for our dessert order while my guest was still eating her dinner.
Again, I understand the underlying reason for the surcharge, but forcing a guest's hand/wallet to pay an automatic 20% on their bill when the food and service is mediocre, in my opinion, is simply bad business.
Tipping has always been a "gratuity" for just that, gratitude for an amazing experience. Where is the incentive for the employees to go above and beyond and provide a memorable experience for the guests? Great Experiences + Happy Customers= Referrals and Return Visits. That is simple Business 101.
Admittedly, I did not look into this surcharge prior to making my reservation, I will own that, but being forced to pay more for what I thought was less, did not sit well with me. Needless to say, I will not be recommending or returning to Urbane.
My nephew got the pastrami sandwich and couldn't eat it - so much fat he couldn't even bite through it. I ordered the grilled cheese with peppers but only got the grilled cheese. Their tomato soup was good. They kindly took my nephew's sandwich off the bill, but with my grilled cheese, iced tea and his beer the bill was just over $27. Seems ridiculous for one sandwich and 2 drinks.
The lobster Benedict is worth traveling for. I live in NYC and make sure I go for this dish whenever I'm in Seattle.
I must add that I went to this restaurant on another occasion for a late night burger. I explicitly asked for my burger to be MEDIUM RARE. I don't eat well done burgers as they taste like cardboard.
I got cardboard. The restaurant graciously apologized but I ended my Seattle trip with a disappointment
I hope that was a singular aberration in what has always been a great dining experience with well prepared food.
