Just returned from dinner at this restaurant. A very pleasant experience even with a reduced menu (Easter weekend). Excellent service from the young waiter. Will return.

Rated as the top restaurant in Brisbane by the Grommet Traveller magazine for good reason. A cool restaurant in a great setting including a great little bar upstairs. The Food was amazing (we did the 5 course omnivore menu) and the service was top rate without being as stiff as other top restaurants I have dined at. The wine pairing... More

After reading rave reviews we were very disappointed at the whole dining experience . Pre dinner drinks service was found to be wanting given that the restaurant was not busy . We chose the 8 course degustation the flavours we're good but portions were surprisingly small . Everyone at the table would find it difficult to justify another visit for... More

One of the most memorable dinning experiences of my life! It's not easy to find good food when you're vegetarian. Most chefs really struggle with the concept, but you know you've found talent when they can line up a degustation like they do here. A must try!

Recently I had a guest travel from Europe and stay with us. Our friends are reputed gourmets and were looking for the #1 dining experience in Brisbane. We took them to Urbane. Their comments were that this restaurant stands alongside NOMA and Osteria Francasna as the best dining experiences of their life. I guess that says it all.

This restaurant is clean, fresh and light which we loved as a group of girls lunch - ing. Wine list was a bit expensive for the by glass side, but service staff were knowledgable in recommending something to our tasting and within our price range. Food was flawless, flavours all complimented one another, we will be back!

We had a 5 course vegan degustation. The dinner started with 4complimentary tasting courses, and continued through the degustation finishing with two desert courses and a tea/infusion of Australian native fruits. The presentations were exquisite and the tastes to match. One of the group was heard to say the taste was so wonderful he thought he might cry! There were... More

My husband and I ate at Urbane again last night, and again we were impressed by the food and the service! It is fantastic to have a vegetarian degustation option. Great food, great drinks, great service = Great time!

Well it had been nearly a year since our last visit, and after dumping (hehe) our daughter at the mother in law we finally had a chance to have a romantic dinner with just the 2 of us. We decided to go the day after Valentines day as we don't like to be rushed and prefer the 7 course degustation... More
