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.

Nothing very bad or very good. It was fine, with nice service, decent food, and open on Sunday night.

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

Lovely bagel and lox. Went back to have it two days in a row.

The service was great, would definitely go back again!

Food was delicious and fresh. The alcoholic beverages for brunch were overpriced and it felt like you were in a hotel restaurant.

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.

Best crab cakes we’ve had! We also had the halibut, salmon and caesar salad. All delicious. Try the bread pudding too!

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.

The food and service were excellent but found the bill to be high - $146 for 4 starters and 4 glasses of wine.

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.

With our reservation they put us in the bar even though dining room was not full at all. Staff was rude and barely showed up even when asked to come over. Awful.

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.

Fantastic food, location and service. Unfortunately, it is incredibly loud due to tall ceilings and lack of sound baffling. Difficult to have a conversation over our meal at our four-top table. I’d return, but only during very slow times or off hours.

We did breakfast at Urbane. Both Benedict's are great, as is the French Toast. The Avocado Toast is good (too much arugula, not enough avocado). Service was very good.

The value of what you get for $100 meal is poor. Didn’t appreciate an automatic gratuity of 20% for a party of 2. Parking was supposed to be validated but because I went to a concert afterward that invalidated it and cost me $25. Just had higher hopes all around.

Our meals were very good and it was the 2nd day of their spring menu. I had a fillet of beef and my husband the risotto. The wine list was extensive and our cocktails before dinner were well executed
