My second visit to this restaurant, and it was less impressive than the first time.

We had a late 10 PM reservation, which was available on Open Table. Once seated, it took a while to even get our water and initial drink order. Things went down hill from there.

They were out of one of the two entrees on the menu (Salmon) so we were left to the Halibut. Were told it could be prepared in the same style as the Salmon, but it did not come out that way.

Felt rushed from the moment we started to order, with the bar closing for us at 11 (although as we left at 11:30, the bartender was still serving those at the bar). We were rushed to order dessert when our incorrectly-prepared fish arrived, with no pause at all between any of our courses.

The food that was available to order was quite good. The service was spotty but friendly.

Perhaps they should cut off reservations at 9:30 if they are unable to provide a dining experience appropriate for a $300+ check??

Creative bartender making interesting concoctions. The SeaGarita with its sea foam topper makes for an amazing summer drink. Well-presented, fresh oysters and the ceviche as starters and lobster mac and cheese for an entrée, with a salted caramel choco hazelnut mousse and a Flan martini as a dessert. Hardwood floors and casual hotel environment drive the noise level but the layout provides quite a few options for differential seating. 15% service fee included.

It was a great place for dinner. The menu was limited but very good. There is not a ton of tables so if you have a big party over 5 I recommend calling. Seafood chowder was so yummy. My halibut entrée was also delicious.

Might be the worst $80 dinner we’ve ever had. Not many options on the menu, salads were bland and my husband’s smoked salmon was raw inside and it took 17 minutes for a new one to arrive. Our server was very nice, but the food was not worth the price, even for a hotel restaurant.

Urbane was, simply, perfection. The food was delicious. The first bite of salmon was heaven. We started with the fried oyster tacos and wow! The saltwater margarita was a hit with us as well. Sipping salty sea foam? Yes! They have a burger that we will try next time, along with other entrees that sound good. Try Urbane. You will not be disappointed!

Food wasn’t great but cool. For sure not worth the price.. but if you’re staying at the hotel and don’t want to leave than this is a better option to Grubhub or uber eats.

DO NOT DINE HERE!
Trying to give the benefit of the doubt as it was a busy night but...
Wait staff was rude and forgot to put in drinks order.
All food and drinks where brought out well after everyone around us.
Food was over priced and mediocre at best. I had to send food back as it wasn’t edible the first try. I hate doing this but for $30 a plate food should be cooked.
Overall it’s a nicely decorated hotel restaurant. Good for drinks or appetizers. Eat elsewhere!!
There is also a mandatory 20% service charge so the staff doesn’t care they get their 20% tip no matter how things were.
Update: we asked for our food to be boxed as we just wanted to leave and found the next day food was missing. The waiter had taken it. What kind of immature person this is I can’t comment but there is clearly problems.
I’ll never be back

We often go to Urbane before our shows at the Paramount Theatre. We have valet parking that's discounted when we eat dinner there for the show. It's so nice to go in and out quickly at the end of our special evening.
The service is ALWAYS excellent. All the staff are friendly and helpful. They check if we have a time schedule we need to keep making sure that we are on time for our show.
Our servers are quick to guide us through the menu if we have questions and offer advice. They've never failed us.
I have also met friends there for breakfast and lunch and still find them restaurant warm and friendly. It's well located and feels safe.

I was concerned about the poor reviews. But I was pleasantly surprised and will go back again. The majority of the poor reviews were based on poor service (20% tip is included in all checks), so what's the point a server to perform if they are going to make 20% for doing nothing. The I has was spot on!

A surprising meal! Based on the photos and name of the restaurant (that is, including the name of the hotel), led me to believe a little it that it was a hotel restaurant. Nothing could be further from the truth. Loved that we could get reservations for our party of 8! We pretty much covered the bases on terms of ordering from the menu, and everything was very good. The butter chicken could have used more heat, even, but heat is tricky! All the desserts were good, but the flourless chocolate cake was a true standout.

We arrived at 6:30. And ordered right away. Because of a concert rush we did not receive our food until 7:45. We were 5 people and spent over $250. Way too long to wait without receiving any sort of food or comping some dessert or something to make up for how long we waited.

What a cool find off the beaten path in Downtown Seattle.
Food and service was outstanding and not what I would have expected for being part of a hotel, although you wouldn't have known it as they are truly separate.

A must do when looking for a great lunch spot

You guys do outstanding pork chops during dinner. Breakfast/brunch was horrible. Will not be returning for breakfast or brunch. Runny, cold eggs, overcooked chicken sausage and you were too short staffed.

Enjoyed a great breakfast at Urbane Restaurant. I ordered the special eggs which included Hills Bacon and three cheeses in a scramble. This came with roasted potatoes which were wonderfully seasoned. The hot chocolate was really good as well. My friend had 2 scrambled eggs with potatoes and toast. She ordered the Uli's Chicken Sausage which she shared with me. I didn't care for the tastes but that's no fault of the restaurant.

This visit was a bit weird as I had a reservation and they attempted to seat me at a tall table (in the bar area) which I don't care for so I requested a low table. I will note this for the future so there is no confusion. Now I mentioned the food was good. It was the service, the whole way around, that was not good. We were seated and it seemed like the restaurant was still trying to set up as one of the workers was placing a 4 piece jelly assortment at the tables. After a good 5 minutes of no one coming to the table we inquired with this same staff person who without missing a beat said she's on her way to your table. It was another 2 minutes (and he didn't move from his setting up) before she showed up. She took our drink order and never asked if we were ready to order and walked away never acknowledging the wait. When she returned about 5 minutes later with our beverages, she offered to take our order. The food came out and I don't recall her ever checking on us to see if we wanted anything else or if the food was okay. Next she came but well after our plates had been cleared and wanted to know if we were charging to our room or on a credit card. The check came and it includes the 20% service charge. This was the first time that charge was hard to swallow as she didn't deserve the 20% but I have to remember that the 20% is a service charges so it's not all going to her but being split between everyone and I'd say the kitchen staff earned their money as again, the food was really good.

The food was very good and fairly priced. Caesar salad with steak needed extra dressing which we go and seemed to lack a choice but otherwise very good. The salmon was good but the vegetable mix had beans that seemed a bit undercooked but otherwise very good. Excellent drinks.

Thought the menu was a little sparse however what we had was excellent and I would order again. It was not too busy when we arrived. The two people greeting us were extremely helpful and very nice. We immediately had someone come to the table to get our drink order and we got our drinks quickly. Unfortunately for some reason it took quite a while to order as our server did not return for quite a while. As I said the food was outstanding. Again however it took far to long for the food server to return with our check. I knew about the 20% service charge from my prior research but this charge was never brought up at the restaurant. I try to avoid restaurants that have a service charge and that would be the only reason I might not return. Overall it was an excellent meal at a place with great ambience.
