With great service and selection of draft beers, mixologist drinks and wines by the glass. Urbana has a great ambience, however the food is average. Service is very efficient and friendly

After spending a large amount of time in Italy, I’m always nervous to eat in Italian restaurants outside of Italy, which tend to be melange of flavours and regions. While the food at Urbana is not obviously regional the flavours and seasonings are authentic and...More

Fine choice of bourbons and scotch. She knew what "straight up" meant for bourbon. A bit noisy. Did not sample the food. Was staying at the hotel.

We were staying at the Kimpton Palomar and decided to have breakfast over at Urbana, the in-house restaurant. It was a wonderfully prepared, sumptuous meal. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The service was very quick. Highly recommend.

Not much to write here, really. The drinks were small pours, the chicken meatballs were tasty, service was slow, and the seats are uncomfortable. Our waitress didn’t bring the second appetizer we ordered and forgot my bosses’ water.
