Urban Eatery is one of my favorite restaurants. They have a great menu & lots of healthy choices.
Weekend brunch menu is good & the Bloody Mary is delicious. The staff is so friendly always acknowledging frequent diners. Keeps me coming back!

“Excellent food. Great Bloody Mary bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I eat at Urban Eatery every weekend I am in Minneapolis for brunch. The Mexican Hash is out of this world. The staff is always friendly. Wonderful Bloody Mary bar and in close proximity to Lake Calhoun!

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love Urban Eatery, the food is great and it's locally sourced. The asparagus is one of my favorite dishes off the snacks menu but the Jalapeño Mac and Cheese comes in close second. I also tried the Turkey Burger which was fantastic. Service was fast and friendly and the wait staff has personality, they aren't boring! Highly recommend this restaurant.

“Great Food, Service & Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

We gathered for a book club meeting here. Parking was a breeze with free valet. Happy hour goes until 6:30! The pork sliders, stuffed baby bellas and the Edamame were all terrific.Shayna was an attentive yet not overbearing server. She kept our glasses full and seemed to be there when we needed her. The food was top drawer and prices reasonable for the quality ingredients. The Thai Beef salad was flavorful and had a bit of a bite. I can't even tell you all the wonderful herbs, greens and vegetables that made up the diffener flavors of every bite. Magnificent! The roast duck was similarly delicious and full of diverse flavors. I can't wait to go back.

“Urban Chic in the Cities”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Have many good dining choices when visiting MSP. We chose this spot based on the web. Risotto stuffed fritters and the stuffed pork chop made an absolutely delicious meal. Finished with the creme brûlé. Great upbeat atmosphere. Highly recommend. Free valet parking also make this a perfect evening.
