Horrible experience! No chips and salsa because they were being “fried”. However we saw another waitress serve them to another table

Our soup was served cold.

We cancelled the rest of our order and paid our Bill & left. The manger did not even apologize for a very poor experience! We won’t return for awhile.

We ate outside and it was very nice, and it's becoming a regular summertime Friday evening destination for us. Margaritas are outstanding! The guacamole is wonderful... mixed at your table... and comes with plenty of house made chips . I recommend the rice bowls. A variety of ingredients are offered. All for a good price.

Urbano is a great place to go for drinks and food. Due to staffing shortage caused by pandemic, our table wasn't ready when we arrived but after a short wait, we were seated at the bar until a table came available. Get a margarita and some guac! As for atmosphere, we prefer lunch because it's mellow and one can carry on a conversation. Evenings are loud but it's a fun place to hang with friends.

Went last night during musikfest so there were a few riffraff attempting to sit at the tables outside wanting to light up up a hookah. Luckily, a heavy-set gentleman that works in the restaurant told them that was not permitted and they’d need to order something from the menu or leave. Our server Brian was an interesting character. Food was good and there was good value for the meal. Overall experience was very cool and chill.

After we were seated it took 12 minutes (yes I timed it) for a waiter to come to our table.
He brought chips & salsa (salsa was spilled all over the bowl & into the basket) & asked for our order. We were not ready to order food & ordered drinks.
It then took over 10 minutes to get our margaritas. There was little salt on the rims & I asked to make mine a golden with the grand mariner floater which did not happen yet was put on the bill.
He asked to take our order when delivering drinks and I asked for a menu explanation such as specials a la cart etc. he did not know what a la cart meant & was unable to explain the menu.
We ordered our food, which was out within 10 minutes and was good but not worth the aggravation up to this point
Our server brought the check without ever asking if we wanted anything else, he simply said “here’s your check” & walked away. When I flagged him down to ask him to remove the charge for the Grand Mariner I didn’t get he asked “did I give you the wrong check”.

The food was good but the service was horrible & the drinks were watered down. I will not be going back to Urbano and would not recommend it to anybody.

We sat outside since it was such a beautiful day. Service was quick and the waitress was helpful making suggestions. The fresh Guacamole is worth the trip alone. The rest of the food was excellent. Great experience!

Excellent meal, services, and value. Ate at Urbano on a Saturday night and seated immediately. Everything was great from food and drinks sandpoint. We had Strawberry Jalopeno Margaritas, Nachos El Trio, Carnitas Quesadillas, and Carnitas Tacos. The nachos were so large that for 2 people we only got half finished.

This is one of our go to date night spots. Margaritas and drinks are very good. The different food choices for any type of diet is vast and the food is always good. The service is incredible. Ambiance is great. Urbano Mexican does not disappoint.

Fresh food, cold drinks and service with a smile. Shrimp tacos are amazing. $20 margarita pitchers on Monday make Monday fun again. Our server, Adam, was professional, knowledgeable and friendly. Anderson was our server another evening and he was great too.

We were seated on the Peculiar Bar side in the front window which was quiet and nice and our server was very kind - I understand that every employer is struggling now to find help so we were patient with the slow service however, I was severely disappointed with the food and drinks. I’ve been frequenting restaurants owned by the Parades’ for many years - was an early supporter of the family at Tapas, even held corporate dinners & private events because I could always rely on their quality. I decided to take my kids who were visiting from out of town to Urbano and was shocked - we were given no plates for appetizers, no silverware, the basket of chips was half full, our chips were not even replenished with our guacamole order - the guacamole was barely mixed with practically whole pieces of avocado with no seasoning or lime juice. We asked for extra chips then gave up. The margarita pitcher tasted like a cheap mix with no alcohol or limes - even if we had enjoyed it, we were never offered a refill.

But that wasn’t the worst of it - when we ordered we were told numerous items that were not available - simple things like wing appetizer and a burger. The server said burgers had not been available for weeks - How can a restaurant not have ground beef for a burger?

Two of our dishes showed up and it was nearly 10 minutes before the third one showed up. At this point we still didn’t even have silverware. The vegetarian enchiladas I ordered without zucchini were dry and had virtually no beans, corn or cheese inside - flavorless mushrooms in a flavorless sauce. I didn’t even know it was possible to make dry enchiladas. The rice on my dish was crunchy because it was so dried out.

I adore this family of owners, always refer friends and family business associates to their restaurants when they’re visiting, so it takes a lot for me to send this bad of a review - complete waste of $120 - thank goodness it wasn’t a business dinner - I would have been mortified.

Our server was excellent. My low service grade was attributed to the hostess. Upon arrival she was no where to be found. We waited a long time and parties were lining up. Servers had to go look for her and when she finally showed up, we didn’t even get an apology. Maybe she was having a bad night.

Dined outside. Wait staff attentive. Carnita tacos were outstanding. Would not re order salmon tacos in the future. Loved my husband’s Verde cocktail, when I ordered one for my 2nd cocktail it was not the same.

The shrimp cerviche was shrimp cocktail in salsa. I ordered the basic chicken tortilla with rice and beans. Too salty and tortillas were tasteless. Service was slow and we had to ask for utensils and napkins.

The food was decent, but waiter wasn’t the best. We did not get plate ware or silver ware initially, and when I asked, they still didn’t arrive, which prompted me to ask another waiter. Also, the waiter never came over to ask to get our food order after serving our drinks.

The food was good but the service was AWFUL. It was not that busy but the waiter was not attentive nor provided a sense a urgency in requesting basic things such as a fork to eat the food that was served. Didn’t provide things that were requested.

Experience was overall good. Our server was friendly but didn’t really listen when we were ordering he would make decisions for us and then run off. There was an allergy to onions and the sever was told but then brought out an appetizer filled with the onions in it. We love going to urbano but the service typically isn’t up to par for the price and ambiance of the restaurant.

My wife and I were both very impressed and pleased with Urbanos. The food was well made, using quality ingredients. Everything was fresh, and despite being busy, the service was attentive and friendly. The manager made sure to check on each and every table. We did not drink, but the cocktails looked good as well. The prices were very reasonable as well. Definitely check it out.

The food was good! But I was expecting more authentic type food, but maybe my expectations were wrong. Drinks were good, but took forever to get them and one was forgotten. The waiter was fantastic, but he was stretched thin. With the lack of staff is the only reason I did not rate the service poor. I feel if it was better staffed there wouldn’t have been those issues.

Great service and food. Only complaint is that it was SO LOUD. My friend and I were in the furthest back corner of the restaurant, isolated from most other tables, and still had to yell just to hear each other. Made it very hard to catch up and enjoy the meal.
