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

After being out for dinner near by, and staying near by, we came here for a couple of final drinks. Staff were all very friendly, bar tender was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed talking to him about Gin, Whiskey, etc. Didn't realise it was Urbane, have wanted to have dinner here for a while!

Tonight we dined at Urbane. While the team was friendly, the service was timely, the menu was extremely disappointing. We had the 5 course degustation dinner with matched wines. The wines were matched perfectly to the food provided. The Chef needs to revisit the menu as all courses except dessert consisted of a version of greens with minute offering of... More
