Love the food and atmosphere

This has become our go-to date night place. They have a good variety of food. We especially like the pasta. The service is always great and it just has a nice atmosphere.

Stopped in for a late dinner on a whim and were pleasantly surprised by the service and the quality food. My wife and I were greeted and seated then met by a very professional server. I had the fire shrimp pasta dish. Penne pasta tossed with medium shrimp and a slightly spicy Jalapeno butter sauce. The pasta was cooked al... More

We'd been here years before, but stopped in recently for a little "date lunch." Fairly busy for a Tuesday at noon. Place still looked the same, that classic "nice restaurant" look. Low lights, wood, dark carpet. But in a good way :) Started with the inside out crab rangoons. Very good and very filling. A must get nesxt time! I... More

Inside Out Crab Ragoon, one of the best things ever. Food is delicious and prepared to perfection. All glazes, sauces and cuts are some of the best in Des Moines.

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
