Exceptional service and we will be back soon!
They made our lunch extra special with a dessert to celebrate our friend’s recovery progress which was beyond kind!

We had a great time dining at Urbano. Our server was wonderful and the food was delicious as were our big spicy margaritas. We had the fried ice cream as recommended and it was amazing! Can’t wait to go back!

I live in the same building as Urbano, and while they have been a favored place for takeout due to the obvious... It was a lot of fun to actually dine there. Great service, good food and my goodness, the habenero sauce is wonderful and dangerous.

We had the chicken tortilla soup, enchiladas and combo fajitas. All very good. Tres leches was good too, not too sweet. Would recommend a visit.

Our first visit, Everything was fine as noted, but the dining room chairs are really uncomfortable- narrow, curved-top, straight back which causes the ends of the curved cross piece to poke your lats when you try to sit back

The food and drinks were pretty good - not the best I've ever had, but not the worse. The downfall of this restaurant is the service. It took forever for our waiter to come each time, we waited an insane amount of time for tortilla chips (after asking more than once).

Love eating outside at Urbano. And I love the complementary chips and salsa starter with my guacamole. Shrimp quesadilla is my go-to meal - fresh and generous portions. And the staff is great - quick and responsive. Of course I’ll return.

Very bad service. We were left unattended since placing our order until we needed to pay to leave. Nobody told us our server was leaving. He just never showed up again. The busser ended up getting us refills.

Beautiful Restauaunt! Service was a little spotty, the AC wasn't working. So it was warm, it rained so it helped cool thing down. The food was good as well as the drinks. The grill steak was amazing.

Sever did not tell us about drink delays and we had to ask multiple questions regarding our order. Birthday girl asked for vegetarian spinach enchiladas and was given chicken. We were not treated well despite clearly mentioning that we were celebrating a special occasion.

Nice atmosphere, very hip, with excellent service. The food is basically upscale chain Tex-Mex, though - not bad, but not great, and not even remotely authentic. You can get pretty much the same at Chevy's with a smaller tab at the end of the night.

Would I recommend Urbano to a friend? I'll leave the "yes" button filled in, but the real answer is "maybe," or "it depends."

Honestly the service was awful and unprofessional. Our waiter didn’t write down our meals, gave us the wrong size drinks and argued with us when we politely told him that we ordered a different size saying “he gave us what we asked for” and then he laughed about it. We had to ask 3 times to get a box before the brought one out. Also the food was subpar expectations.

It took a while for anyone to come take our order. My order wasn’t accurate and I asked for the “green sauce”for my enchiladas, they brought it out ice cold. Drink glasses weren’t clean. We won’t be back.

The food and service was outstanding - I had the shrimp quesadilla and chicken tortilla soup. Portions were generous and I had lunch for the next day to take home. Friends had chimichangas and said they were quite tasty. We can see how it could get very loud with a full house - no sound buffering in the high ceiling. But for our late lunch, conversation was easy. We will return!

Two families went here for Father's Day dinner. Nice place and the food was good. We had an issue with the server - apparently she was at the end of her shift. We started with incorrect drink order (which she did fix). Then we received wrong food order. No one really checked on us and we had to flag people down to get extra chips to eat with our guac. Some time after the food was served, we saw a new wait staff and we shared our concerns. He was apologetic and offered to fix the issues but we have already started eating. Aside from the service issue, the restaurant was very hot with stale air. It doesn't feel like there's AC or fan running and we were all very warm and started to get uncomfortable. We may try Urbano again because we did enjoy the food.
