Honestly, it is as if the food comes out of a high-end laboratory. The service was excellent, the food exquisite and unique, and the setting amicable and friendly. I highly recommend this venue for couples and friends looking for a gourmet experience. It is obvious that the restaurant takes pride in their customer service, team, and cater closely to all...

We had a fantastic business dinner at Urbane - they definitely put out some great challenging dishes in both presentation and format. Service was attentive but carefully discrete. We did the degustation menu and while there was the odd opt out from the table noone was put out.

I went with my brother who was visiting from overseas. He travels a lot and fine dines frequently (if that is a verb). He said he food with good, after the first couple of dishes which were a tad salty. He also enjoyed the accompanying wines. My most memorable were tomato consume, shiitake mushroom consume, smoked duck and Bearre Blanc... More

I booked this for our anniversary. Totally satisfied. Genuinely friendly staff, who seemed really proud of what they were presenting (with good reason). The food was amazing, and with wine matches perfect. Every course (and there seemed to be a lot more than the 5 we ordered) was different, and amazing in its own right. Vege options may be slightly... More

I was very pleasantly surprised at the skill of the chef. The food here would not have been out of place in the best restaurants of London or Hong Kong. I was also impressed with the wines that matched the degustation. Service was attentive and enthusiastic. I'll be back.

What a fantastic 5 star dinning experience. The Urbane dinning room is pretty simple, understated - but the focus here is what's on the plate and glass I guess. 8 courses with some surprise snacks - and every single drop was delicious. Received a few sideways glances trying to lick the plate ;) Paired with the wines this was a... More

I echo the general theme of positive comments below. The eight course degustation was challenging, unusual but exquisitely delicious. The food was let down but the service; while knowledgable, could be improved by increased attentiveness one expects at a fine dining restaurant.

I took my partner one night for dinner on a Friday night. This is a three hat restaurant and as such this review reflects the extra cost and expectations. Looking through the reviews on TA I can see why there are negative reviews. The food was not average but very contemporary with very unusual combinations. You need to be prepared... More

Hadn't been to Urbane for many years. We had the 5 course degustation, the multiple canapés/amuse bouche were a great idea and apart from a really saltly potato chip were really enjoyable. The quinoa cracker with chicken liver parfait was exceptional. We started with champagne (not part of the wine matching) and the canapés were served when we had almost... More
