Degustations can very very interesting and exploritory in terms of taste sensations and Urbane does this very well. Nicely delivered plates of cleverly crafted foods that leave a lasting memory of the experience.

I have found the food offered at this restaurant very interesting. Food are presented in a different form to what one might expected. They come in small portions but quite a variety. Taste is quite nice.

2 hats !!! - well maybe i am wrong but when i have a degustation menu i expect one NOT a tasting menu with tiny portions so you hardly get to experience / taste anything!!! we left the restaurant still hungry. Not to mention the wine pairing at the whim of the server we hardly got 125mls as is expected... More

Dear Mary, We were sorry to have read your review of Urbane as a 1-circle rating. We have been serving our customers five and eight courses (not including the additional snacks) for some time and Chef has experimented with the amount sent out and has been noted as a perfect amount for a diner to go home feeling satisfied and...

For your next culinary experience in fine dining, try the luxurious Urbane in Mary st, Brisbane CBD. Degustation menu only with a choice of 5 or 8 courses with matching wines. Top service and 5-star experience for the senses from start to finish. Fine dining such as this is all about quality, unique food and tastes, royal service, and all... More

Virtually every dish we had here was exceptional. We opted for the 8 course omnivore but ended up having 15 amazing dishes when you add in the 6 (yes..SIX) different amuse bouches and the tea infusion to finish. Service was a delight with everyone obviously enjoying their work and knowledgeable about the food being served. Sweetbreads in a smoked eel... More

We ate at Euro, next door to Urbane which I believe is owned and run by the same people. We ordered an entree of duck pate which we shared and followed this with a steak each. The steaks were cooked to perfection and were accompanied by tasty mash. We ordered a side of salad which was fresh and worked well... More

This was my first degustation experience and it was also the first for my partner. I had my first oyster. I ate my first octopus. I devoured my first medium rare lamb. We picked the 5-course degustation omnivore and herbivore menus, priced at AUD110.00 each sans wine pairing. I had the omnivore and of course my vego partner had the... More

We won a gift voucher for this restaurant and went for the 8-course omnivore degustation with matching wines. First impressions of the place were that it was austere. The waiters were often patronising (ie had I ever eaten sweetbreads before? Well, yes, actually and I've also prepared them myself!) and the sommelier gave the impression that she wasn't that experienced.... More

Recently dined at Urbane in the city and had a wonderful night out. We had the degustation menu. The food was great and the waiters friendly and knowledgeable. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Mouth watering presentation, perfectly presented. Front of House is charming and superbly talented chefs make a meal at Urbane a sensory experience. I have dined at a number of fine dining establishments in Paris, the home of fine dining, and this restaurant rivals many of these establishments. Dour old Brisbane needs you, don't go away and we will return.
