A stylish modern restaurant. Degustation mode is grazing and your tastebuds are taken on a journey through various flavours. 5 course omni Degustation was enough for us ... once you include the four surprise tastings and bread.

The entire experience was fantastic from the moment we walked into the restaurant until we left when it was raining and were even offered an umbrella. Although expensive well worth the splurge for special occasions. Just divine.

My partner and I celebrated an anniversary here and had a wonderful night. We each had eight courses, he the Omni and I the vegan. My partner had the accompanying wines which he very much enjoyed and I had a few cocktails. We were happily surprised to find it more like 13 courses with two snacks, bread, and two palate... More

Had the five course omnivore last night and it was outstanding. The Wagyu was probably the highlight, following by the loos. Probably the best restaurant toilets I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. Really top notch. The service was also pretty good, although not in the toilets. The only slight let down was the Baby Coc that comes with... More

The restaurant never fails to deliver, The food is always excellent, subtle flavours, attention to detail with plating and intriguing combinations. The food is complimented with an excellent wine list. The staff know their role having a good knowledge of the menu & wines on offer. Brilliant venue for that special occasion.

My husband and I dined at Urbane for our wedding anniversary dinner. The restaurant was beautiful and intimate. We both chose the 8 course menu and my husband had the matching wines. The food as expected was beautifully presented and of the highest quality. There were a few dishes with a smoked flavour that were not to my taste but... More

I had dined here a couple of years ago but there had been a change of chef so I decided to give it another go and see how it went. The restaurant was fairly quiet with the smallish space less than half full. The service was thus prompt and efficient. Also quite friendly and polished without being over the top.... More

It was a special occasion so took my wife to dinner to Urbane and had the 8 course gustation, plus the accompanying wines. Food and wine combinations were really well thought out. Each of the dishes were really appetising and a delight to look at. The service was also good, except a slight glitch when my wife was served apples... More

Stayed overnight in Brisbane to try the degustation menu at Urbane. I had previously read about it in Gourmet traveller and being a food / restaurant / travelling sort of couple, the misses and i decided to give it a go. We have had a few degustations; this was the best so far. 5 courses, well balanced, clean flavours, appropriate... More
