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

We have had a few degustations; this was the best so far. 5 courses, well balanced, clean flavours, appropriate... More

We had the meat eaters delight 8 course option with wines. Happy Dance time. Husband has stolen the menu of the night from me but from memory ... not... More

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.

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
