We arrived on a Thursday night, in Dec 2007, at about 8:45pm and the doors were locked. The sign said they were open until 10pm on Thursdays. I'm not sure if they just closed early or if they were closed permanently. Call before you go to make sure.
My mom came in town to visit from Chicago, where her and her husband have a restaurant that they have owned for 35 years. My fiancee, mother and I went to Urban for dinner on Saturday night. They were busy, but we didn't mind having a glass of wine at there very posh bar. Looking around the decor of the restaurant is very sheek but you certainly feel at home in there. Upon being seated at our table for dinner we ordered the ribs, croquettes and oysters Urban appetizers. I don't think the dishwasher had much job security that evening for we ate every last bite of our. Simply amazing!! My fiancee said they were the best ribs he's ever had in his life. For dinner I ordered a pasta dish with chicken, goat cheese and spinach which was wonderful. My mother and fiancee ordered seafood entrees, he ordered a scallop entree and she ordered angel hair with clams. The scallops were huge and cooked to perfection, which my mother had commented on how hard that is to do with such large scallops. Her pasta dish with clams she said was out of this world. The restaurant is a quaint restaurant so if you don't like to wait for a table you might want to visit on a weekday night, but you must go!! You don't want to miss out on the mouth watering food and outstanding service. This is certainly a piece of Buckhead here in Roswell. I give it two thumbs up and an empty plate!!
Best new restaurant in Roswell – We tried Urban for the first time and were delighted! We ordered 2 mixed drinks, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 deserts and the bill was $70. Not bad in my book! Urban has a trendy yet comfortable atmosphere. The service was professional and friendly. It?s a white tablecloth restaurant perfect for a special night out or for people who enjoy fine dining, casual enough for a regular meal. I recommend it highly-GREAT addition to Roswell!!!
Nice atmosphere, great service, yummy food, good value – We walked in off the street and were surprised by the great decor - very modern and comfortable. The menu was great - wide variety of choices and reasonable prices. Our waitor knew the menu quite well and made solid recommendations. I have a number of food allergies and they were very accomodating of them. The service was excellent - timing of food, refills, polite and knowledgable. Enjoyed the by the glass wine menu a lot. We're looking forward to going back.
Aim to Please! – We LOVE Urban. The staff is friendly, helpful, and the owner's absolutely AIM TO PLEASE! I've been to the restaurant on holidays, weekends and weeknights. I've always been happy when I leave. When we've had a challenge with our food, which incidentally has only happened once, the staff has bent over backwards to make sure we were happy. We dine out at least 4 nights a week and eat in cities all over the world. The menu is unique and not over priced. They have interesting drink specials and the atmosphere is very trendy. Please give it a try. You won't be disappointed!
Best New Restaurant in North Atlanta – I would like to say that those who have written negative reviews on this restaurant must have some axe to grind. There is nothing that could be further from the truth about poor food quality. I have eaten in some of the best casual fine dining places in the country and can't remember when I have enjoyed an evening more. My five guests would all say the same and I'm sure they all, like myself, can't wait to return. I think the selection is more than adequate, quality and creativity is unmatched. Could the service be improved, I would have to say yes but it did not interfere with the wonderful dining experience we had and from what I heard from those at adjoining tables - - they, too, were more than satisfied with their evening. All I can say is "If you don't go and give Urban a try, you will be missing out on one of the best dining experiences you will ever have.
Dining Disaster – Those who have written negative reviews on the service and food at this restaurant are correct. I went there last night and will never return again. The only thing this restaurant has going for it is the decor. You would think if one spent so much money on atmosphere that they might invest in food quaility and training staff as well. Those who are raving about this place must not be use to casual fine dining or must have alot to gain from such reviews.
Wonderful in Every Way! – I went there with 6 friends on a Saturday night and everything was perfect from drinks, to tapas, to dinner! Highly recommended to everyone. I had the scallops and they were perfectly cooked. Would love to go back anytime!
Wonderful waiter! – My fiance and I have been to Urban twice. Once when it first opened, and then again a couple of weeks ago with friends. We have had a great experience both times and our friends loved the place as well. We've had the same waiter twice (can't remember his name), but he was very friendly and knowledgable. He discussed the oysters at length with my fiance. We just moved to the north suburbs and we love having a resturant nearby with the vibe that Urban has. One of my favorite things there is the blue cheese chips with a balsamic syrup. They are fabulous! We haven't tried any of the desserts yet, but it sounds like that needs to be next on our list.
GREAT AND ENJOYABLE PLACE!!! – Our experience at Urban was a good one!! Let me start off by saying the service was Great. Our waiter and assistant and the I guess manager who were walking around were very friendly. And now to the food. The food and appetizers were excellent! Everythigs came out just perfect! The music at the place was immediately put me in such a relaxing mood!! We'll definately plan to come back soon and often!!
