Urbane Ratings and Reviews
I feel the food was good. But the general wait staff could pay attention to their section more so. Meaning that if they are providing service to another table in their section, they could/should glance at other tables when they are there to see if there are other needs. The bus-staff was excellent and should not be added into the above comment.
We went prior to a show at the Paramount Theatre. The restaurant is nice and open but does not feel like a dining hall. Good ambiance and quiet enough that we could talk easily. The service was very prompt. We were there at 6:00 so the rush had not happened yet. Food was outstanding! We both loved the choices and portions. Their cocktails were great and priced as expected. We will be going back!
Food was OK, but service was strange. Wait staff seems to be trained to look away from the tables. Twice we had to walk over to the hostess to request things that normally a waiter would provide (a wine list and, later, a knife). But we couldn't get the attention of the waiter! And to make things worse, this restaurant add an automatic 20% service charge to the bill. Normally I am supportive of this service charge to ensure that restaurant staff are adequately compensated, but this was an example of how that system can fail by removing the incentive for providing excellent service!
For a hotel restaurant, Urbane is surprisingly warm and comfortable - definitely not cookie cutter. The food and drinks are tasty, and the service is personable. We were there for a pre-theater dinner, and when we were seated at 6pm (7:30 show) the server asked about that, so they knew we had a timeline. That's why I was surprised when parties seated after us got their meals and were done eating before we were served our meals (which were actually starters) at 7pm - after the server stopped by to drop the check "so you can get to your show" - and when I mentioned that we hadn't received our meals yet, she said "oh, I just fired that back!" as if that was supposed to help. It was disappointing, because we had to rush to finish in order to make it to the theater. We'll go back, but if it's pre-theater, I'll be clearer on our needs.
We had a bad experience. First it took 15 minutes after we were seated for waitress to acknowledge us. We finally ordered drinks and an appetizer. The appetizer showed but it still took another 5 minutes before our drinks arrived. Our waitress was friendly..maybe a little too friendly considering they were obviously not keeping up. The food was fair..nothing special. The final straw was the add the tip for you. I tip well for good service and food...in this case we received neither.
Restaurant was extremely noisy, but bar was quiet and pleasant and offered full dinner menu. Food was excellent and our server very attentive. Due to a mix up, one of our appetizers arrived later than the other, so she comped it; an unnecessary but very appreciated gesture. We chose Urbane for its menu and proximity to the Paramount theater as we were seeing a show after dinner. Very happy with our choice and would do it again!
The food was wonderful. However, we specifically told our server that we needed to make the theatre by 8pm. We sat down at 5:45. At 7:30 our entrees still had not come. In the end, they brought them and comped the entrees but it ended up making a fun night a bit stressful. And we weren't able to get dessert or really enjoy the food. Unfortunate ending when we were there with plenty of time to spare.
This was not my reservation. The person that signed up used an email address that resolved to mine. I don't know if they never received an email but I had the opportunity to cancel this reservation without the person's knowledge. If you're going to send an email with this capability, please make sure that you confirm that the appropriate person received it
I’ll keep it pretty short. We stopped by for a New Year’s Eve brunch.
The menu had a lot of potential. When our food arrived, the portions were surprisingly scant. I ordered the migas. What came was what looked like a small scoop of tortilla chip casserole, but poorly seasoned. A feat considering it had chorizo. Oh, and three small flour tortillas - store bought - and sort of dry.
But the part that really got me was the service. Our server came by the table three times, in an hour. When he was there, he was fairly perfunctory and brief. Considering they have a mandatory 20% gratuity (which I am otherwise ok with), you’d think they would provide better service.
There are a lot of places to eat in the area, I’d check them out first.
Go to Urbane if you want to spend over $200 for an average meal and be treated poorly.
We called well ahead to let them know we may be 10 min late. We were told by an indifferent employee that if we did not arrive on time we would be moved to the end of the wait list. We inquired about parking .
We arrived on time but the snobbish matradee told us to wait in the bar until a table was available. We would have been penalized for being a few minutes late but they could care less about making us wait over 30 min for our reservation.
The bartender was uninterested in the clients or explaining the drink selections. He didnt check if we enjoyed our drinks (my house wine was not as he described it). I requested the bar tab be put on the dinner bill but the bartender pushed us pay now. Likely something with tips and the 20% surcharge. We were there during the "daily" happy hour which was not in effect that day.
We shared the mushroom risotto as an appetizer and it was brought as requested. Well prepared but average overall. The table waiter was the best of the staff and provided good service. I had the beef filet. It was good, cooked exactly how I requested. Tender, a very good piece of beef but under spiced. Nancy had the autumn salad which was quite boring - some field greens, a couple slices of pear and a few nuts.
A second set of drinks with dinner, and dessert with coffee brought the bill to well over $200.
Upon exit, I requested the parking validation we had been informed of but the matradee told us we parked at the wrong garage. It was the one we were told to park at! Again, they couldnt bother to care.
Our special dinner was diminished by choosing Urbane. Fortunately, I'm so enchanted by Nancy that the poor service was overcome and we enjoyed each other despite the staff and mediocre food.
I will never return and discourage anyone else to go. I expect to be treated as a guest rather than a bother.
We tried to use a $100 Hyatt gift card but waiter said the balance was 0. I just spent 45 minutes on the phone and was told nothing except it had been used (not by us) on 2/13/17. They demanded proof of purchase to tell us where. You can keep the $100, we'll never set foot in a Hyatt hotel or restaurant again.
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.
