I have been here for lunches, and the menu is rotated over time. It is nice that you won’t necessarily get the same thing each time. The food is all sourced locally, and I’ve been pleased each time. The wait staff is very accommodating and...More

I felt giddy when I learned that a renowned chef was setting up shop in our little town of Geneva. I started watching their videos as they showed their preparations - musicologists setting up their sound system, bartender mixing cocktails, murals going up on their...More

Great food. Very fresh and imaginatively presented. Superb local beer on tap. Quirky ambience but in a fun, good way.

From my perspective all of the restaurants in the Fox Valley are starting to feel the same. Not Craft Urban. The energy level when you walk in the door is different. For me it’s about the balance of food, drink and experience and I get...More

This is our second time and won’t be our last. The Shrimp cocktail is fantastic as a starter and our family of five had burgers, lobster roll, and BLT. The lobster roll was outstanding and the BLT was fantastic. We didn’t save room but had...More

Saturday night birthday dinner with two friends. We ordered burgers and a chopped salad. The service was wonderful. The burgers were nicely done with cheddar cheese, sautéed onions and a tomato jam with matchstick like fries. The chopped salad was good but not out of...More

Most people will try a restaurant with the intension to learn or experience something new. Not here. The quasi hipster chic has been done for about 6 years now - eclectic decor and a slim menu projecting quality over quantity , which it fails to...More

Terrible food, high prices and dismal service! Sounds like a combination for failure. Taco dip was ok but was basically guacamole mixed with salsa and black beans for $10. Ordered my burger medium and came out Rare (hope I don’t get sick tonight...) My wife...More

A couple of friends brought me to Craft Urban during my first trip to Geneva. While it's not an overly large restaurant, the dinning area is open and bright. It also has a few tables in a patio area. The menu is compact, but there...More

Craft Urban sources from local producers and our menu is a seasonal menu making weekly & monthly tweaks. Mimicking our food menu - our libations are just as colorful, unique and palatable. For dessert, we have our very own pound cake served with berries and cream and don't forget about our chocolate mousse, both equally delicious. We also accommodate vegetarian and vegan lifestyles.
