    I’m from Texas, so I’m picky when it comes to “Mexican” food. This was a fantastic find! Everything we had at our table was extraordinary. Handmade tortillas, fresh salsas, creative cocktails, and a menu with a wide variety from classic Tex-Mex to more adventurous meals. We will be going back again and again. It is noisy with a bit of a club vibe. But we enjoyed the lively atmosphere.

    Our party of three ordered cheese enchiladas, carnitas fajitas, and taco salad and all three of us thought the food and service were good. However, we all agreed that we wouldn’t go back until the weather permits outdoor dining. The noise level was simply too loud for comfort. We would recommend Urbano but be aware that that you may want to bring along military grade ear protection.

    Disappointed in the hostess. She was very rude to us. She was rude the second we came in and then she misread our reservation and tried to put us at a table for 2. When I showed her that it says 3, she continued to get an attitude with us saying that her iPad says differently and that we were basically in the wrong. My food was alright. My fajitas came out more “burnt” than anything.

    Lots of servers and employees standing around yet we never got checked on once we got our meals and we all needed beverages. Not even a water refill. Disappointing as 2 people wanted another margarita but couldn’t get help. We all left thirsty and disappointed. Luckily the food was delish and fun ambiance.

    The food and service were wonderful and worthy of a return however the conditions of restrooms were unappealing for a dining establishment of this caliber and appeared to have been unchecked for some time that evening. We mentioned this situation to host desk staff.

    This is one of the best new restaurants I’ve been to recently. The service was one of the highlights. They work as a team so multiple people are taking care of you to make sure you have everything you need. Chips and salsa are delicious. Some of the best salsas I’ve had in the area but the queso was the highlight. Get it A not an option a get it! Delish! We had shrimp tacos, fajitas, and the fajita salad. Everything was delicious. Well seasoned and fast. I had the top shelf margarita which was great. Not like some places where all you taste is the mix. Going back again this weekend - it was That good!! Highly recommend for a casual night but a great dining experience.

    So much fun to go to Mosaic when it is decked out in Christmas mode. Urbano is a really cool place and the staff goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of and having a great time. Didn't give them a higher rating because, growing up on the Mexican border, I am somewhat of a Mexican food snob. In my "opinion", Enchiladas should always be rolled in corn tortillas. I was a little disappointed to discover they were rolled in flour tortillas. Also, the beans were screaming for some salt and seasonings. Having said that, a great time was had by all!

    Fabulous service - a small team of workers rearranged the tables outside to accommodate our group, when the table indoors proved too noisy. Our server was superb, very helpful and full of positive energy. The cadillac margharitas were excellent, as was the food we ordered. They even brought us celebratory birthday desserts on the house. Wonderful overall experience!

    Sevice was rushed. Fifteen minutes into our dinner, we were asked if we were done and ready for our table to be cleared by two different servers! Even after we told them we weren’t t ready they kept on hovering over to see if they could snatch our plates the minute we put down our forks and knives. Not acceptable. Drinks were weak. Chicken was dry and unflavored on my chicken fajitas. The “grilled veggies” that come with the fajitas were just onions! Very under whelming experience from start to finish. No I will not return to this establishment.

    Food was good. Though service was ok, didn’t really come by to fill water cup. Employees rushed to clear up our table when we got near done and wanted to take our water cups, we haven’t even gotten the bill yet! I only took one star off because our main server was polite and made sure my mojito didn’t have any alcohol in it and he brought a less spicy sauce for my friend’s dish. I would still come back because the food is delicious. Though I hope next time the service will be better.

    Intolerably and painfully loud inside, I will only eat here if I can eat outside. We had an outside table this time, so we were very happy. I wish they would do something about the noise so we could eat here other times two because I love the food and the service is fabulous.

    Service was horrible. First the restaurant was hot, apparently the air conditioning was unable to keep up with the heat, so I asked to move to skirt table further from the door. There were empty tables further away, but they said no, and moved me to an adjacent table. We were then seated at the new table for 20-30 minutes, finally asked one of the staff to get our waiter/waitress, 10 minutes later asked someone else and finally was able to order drinks. When we ordered our meals we specifically asked for the grilled oysters as an appetizer, they came out 2 minutes before the meal. There were still layers on the plate and the waiter had to be told to put the plate back down we were not done with them, which normally is understood as there was half of then12 still on the plate. When my fajitas came out, they had not given me any cheese, as my friend had with his fajitas, I waited a few minutes for the waiter to come by and ask how things were, but that did not happen so I asked another waiter. Several minutes later that waiter was standing at the waiter stand t king an animated story to another waiter, so I asked him if he could bring the cheese before I actually was done eating. If the service was terrible, it would have been better than what we experienced. Will never go back.

    We have been to the Urbano in Old Town and have been happy with the food. Same here at Mosaic but the restaurant was too loud to comfortably talk and the women's room was in desperate need of attention. Overflowing trash can and sinks dirty.
