Great Neighborhood Restaurant

The Urban Grill is a great little jewel in Urbandale, Iowa. Try the fish tacos or the Prime Rib. The service is unbelievable and the atmosphere is perfect for any reason.

Wife had the chicken de burgo and I had burger. We each had potato soup to start. I certainly cannot leave out the cotton candy martini my wife very much enjoyed. Everything was very good and cooked to perfection. This is a must try restaurant to add to your list. Atmosphere was extremely nice but still down to earth.

As we entered, we were a bit hesitant after we were greeted at checkin and then ignored by the same person who told us the hostess would be with us in a minute, and then seated us herself - DUH! Thankfully, we chose to sit on the patio - not in her section! It was uphill from there :) Ritchie... More

After having eaten at the not ever eating at the Urban Grill one years ago, I've been there 4 times in the last 5 weeks! Each time, I've has something different and I have not been disappointed. It's gone from an after thought to a go-to- place for lunch. The staff if extremely attentive and courteous and the food is... More

Lobster mac and cheese special was fabulous, and you can get it as side if you ask. Steak was pretty good, though Oscar sauce kinda smothered it. Service was great. Location is easily accessible, but it's out in front of a shopping plaza that's apparently died (everything's closed).

If I could I would give a 4.5 rating. We had reservations & thou they were busy we did not have too long of wait. Very nice, relaxing atmosphere. Good service & good price. The "inside out" tray with crab rangoon & won-ton chips was chosen for our appatizer. Good dip, but wish there had been more dip for 3... More

Has great atmosphere. Very busy at lunch. The chicken Caesar salad was good. The sandwich I had was OK. My fries were cold. Not sure if I would return.

There are a group of us women who like to get together for a drink and appetizer after work. This is our go to place as it has easy parking unlike going on downtown and the drinks and appetizers are good. We sat in the bar this time and had great service. We weren't rushed. We had the crab appetizer... More

We have been going there regularly for girls get togethers for a few years. We always went for happy hour however last time we were there we were told we couldn't sit by the fireplace and get the half price appetizers during happy hour. So we moved to the bar. This time we sat outdoors and initially our waitress, who... More

Been coming here for years and really have been satisfied with each visit. The dimly lit setting is very cozy and the decor is nice. Generally we like to sit in the bar - on a recent visit the NCAA basketball tourney was on. The food and drinks are delicious and the staff is friendly. Be careful as it can... More
