We had a large group of 25 and were put in a private dining room, the food that was served was lovely and the presentation was very impressive. I would recommend.

Anniversary for about 30 people downstairs in a private room. Shared plates. Food exceptional in terms of quality and taste, smallish portions. Varied menu, beautifully presented. Service was friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. Drink list was well stocked with good quality and variety.

The nine course degustation menu was delicious! All dishes were meticulously presented and tasted divine. Not particularly filling but it's more about the dining experience and flavour combinations than eating as much as possible! An amazing dining experience with great service.

Loved this restaurant, the food was great, each dish innovative and tasteful. We did the 5 course tasting menu and enjoyed it very much. The wine list was extensive with a good matching selection of French wines. The service was ok, but I would have enjoyed a printed menu - at times I didn't know what I was eating, and... More

Urbane was good, very good in fact but if you come from the country or usually like your plate full of parma, don't come here! There ain't a lot of food but what there is is well balanced, textured and inventive. We chose the five course degustation but probably should have gone the eight course. Then again, that's ratcheting up... More

My Board met here for lunch and we certainly weren't disappointed. While the table was varied in their choice we tried the 5 course Omnivore which was simply outstanding. The Ravioli was cooked to perfection, while the Peachester chicken was mouth-watering. Attention from the staff was second to none. Some may say it was a little expensive, but our board... More

My partner and I only go to Urbane on the very special occasions. We've now been there numerous times and the chef, Alejandro Cancino, makes a very fine degustation meal indeed. The vegan option is absolutely fantastic and provides some amazing flavours that We've never tasted before. The setting, service and ambiance is just so special. It's really a very... More

We had a dinner with family here. Wines were very interesting , food was interesting, but still left hungry. I think that degustation menus often have this end result- maybe eat before you go ? Final bill of $280 pp was surprisingly poor value.

Honestly, it is as if the food comes out of a high-end laboratory. The service was excellent, the food exquisite and unique, and the setting amicable and friendly. I highly recommend this venue for couples and friends looking for a gourmet experience. It is obvious that the restaurant takes pride in their customer service, team, and cater closely to all...

We had a fantastic business dinner at Urbane - they definitely put out some great challenging dishes in both presentation and format. Service was attentive but carefully discrete. We did the degustation menu and while there was the odd opt out from the table noone was put out.
