They staff was more than accommodating and very friendly. They anticipated we were going to the Paramount and kept everything on track for us!

We ate at Urbane before heading to a show at the Paramount. The staff was definitely aware that there was a show that night because we were asked right when we sat down if we needed to be out by a certain time to make the concert. It also was not very busy - restaurant was maybe a third full. So I was surprised that we didn’t get our food until an hour after we sat down. Our server came over a couple of times to apologize for the wait but didn’t offer much in terms of anything to tide us over. We finally asked for bread and she brought it. Overall a disappointing experience at a restaurant with an automatic gratuity charge.

Had a very nice meal and a great bottle of wine. Our server was well versed in both the menu and the wine list and was very helpful. We'll be back!

Service was good at first, then went to poor. Food was not cooked the way we ordered, sent some items back, and overall taste for my streak was mediocre. I would not recommend and will not return.

Excellent food and service. Split a salad for us, split the bill, got us to the theatre on time!

This was not my first visit to Urbane. It is close to the theater and a usually a good place for a pre-theater meal. We arrived nearly 2 hours before curtain and told the server we had theater tickets. We did not dawdle in ordering. However, it took an hour to get our meal! This meant we were eating quickly, paying quickly and hustling out of the there. Otherwise the review would have been much better.

Urbane is a great place to come for a pre-theatre supper. The pork chop with cheddar cheese polenta and sautéed greens was divine. We had a 5:30 PM reservation and our dinners were served by 6 PM. Between dinner and dessert the service was lacking. It took 15 minutes to have our server come to our table despite three requests made to the other wait staff. I’m sure it was related to the crowd of customers that had since arrived. None the less, I would eat here again.

Food was abundant. Left half behind and they were not entrees but starters. Like that tip or service charge is automatically included. Wish more places would adopt that concept.

Went to Urbane before a great Blues concert at the (nearby) Paramount Theater. The crab cakes were some of the best I have ever had-and that's from a 'crab cake snob' who spent 30+ years in San Francisco. They were tasty, cooked to perfection and the jalapeno aioli sauce combined with the sweet cherry tomatoes was superb! Throw in an $8 parking fee and this is a great place to dine.

I really enjoyed the Greek yogurt, fruit and granola bowl. My husband’s chicken sausage was not good. It was over cooked and dried out. We called it to the attention of our server who said she would take it off the bill. We were charged anyway.

All four of us had something different for lunch and each of us enjoyed our meal. Wait staff was friendly and attentive and were careful to explain that a 20% gratuity would be added into the bill. We had a window table so it was a great spot to people watch as well.

Urbane is a good option for breakfast when you are near the convention center. Service is quite good and food choices are good if a little standard with a few exceptions (like my crab benedicts). Service is nice and friendly although they seemed a bit understaffed when we were there. I definitely recommend Urbane.

The food was just ok- not worth the $. The service was terrible - brought me an appetizer I did not order, argued about it before taking it back, and it appeared on the bill. Waiter was in friendly and absent. I have never been somewhere where a 20% tip was added for a party of three
Will not return

The food was delicious and beautifully plated. We had 3 apps and 2 salads. Nothing was oversized, which is a nice change. However, the plate to price ratio was quite high. The service was excellent. The 20% mandatory up charge isn’t a system I’m on board with. Perhaps the owners/ managers of Hyatt could pay the support staff a lot bing wage is instead? The wait staff on the front lines who have to take on the heavy lifting from the customers should be rewarded for jobs well done.

Urbane has been consistently good for years. Always fresh ingredients and I've always found something I like, regardless of my mood. Solid wine list. And the service has always been stellar.

It's our go-to before a show at the Paramount. Also nice to stop by after the show for dessert or a quick after-dinner drink. Others in the area may have bigger names, but Urbane is equal (or better) than them all.

We dined on a Sunday late afternoon before a show at the Paramount. We ordered a selection of appetizers from the bar menu; we loved the Grilled Salmon Rillette and Mac n Cheese, but the Short Rib Sliders and an Asian-inspired dish were average. There weren't many customers in the bar and there wasn't much ambiance (except a few people at the bar watching soccer) but maybe that was due to our "after lunch but before dinner" timing. The service was good, but there was too much of it! Servers kept coming by our table asking if everything was ok...it was, but their constant interruptions became a joke.

I went to the restaurant based on the menu and proximity to the Paramount. The food was amazing! I highly recommend the Grilled Pork Chop with Beecher’s Flagship Grits...wonderfully smoky and flavorful. The Pork Belly starter was also delicious with the spicy cabbage & pickled mushrooms.

If you’re going to the show afterwards, I’d advise reminding your server more than once as service got more difficult from beginning to end.

The signature cocktails need a bit more work.

Urbane was ok. Food was not bad-but not great. Server was very nice. Thought it was odd they sat us in the bar even though we had reservations-the restaurant was pretty empty when we arrived and certainly not full when we left. Just an ok restaurant-will probably not return.
