The nine course degustation menu was delicious! All dishes were meticulously presented and tasted divine. Not particularly filling but it's more about the dining experience and flavour combinations than eating as much as possible! An amazing dining experience with great service.

Loved this restaurant, the food was great, each dish innovative and tasteful. We did the 5 course tasting menu and enjoyed it very much. The wine list was extensive with a good matching selection of French wines. The service was ok, but I would have enjoyed a printed menu - at times I didn't know what I was eating, and... More

Urbane was good, very good in fact but if you come from the country or usually like your plate full of parma, don't come here! There ain't a lot of food but what there is is well balanced, textured and inventive. We chose the five course degustation but probably should have gone the eight course. Then again, that's ratcheting up... More

My Board met here for lunch and we certainly weren't disappointed. While the table was varied in their choice we tried the 5 course Omnivore which was simply outstanding. The Ravioli was cooked to perfection, while the Peachester chicken was mouth-watering. Attention from the staff was second to none. Some may say it was a little expensive, but our board... More

My partner and I only go to Urbane on the very special occasions. We've now been there numerous times and the chef, Alejandro Cancino, makes a very fine degustation meal indeed. The vegan option is absolutely fantastic and provides some amazing flavours that We've never tasted before. The setting, service and ambiance is just so special. It's really a very... More

We had a dinner with family here. Wines were very interesting , food was interesting, but still left hungry. I think that degustation menus often have this end result- maybe eat before you go ? Final bill of $280 pp was surprisingly poor value.

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
