Sat at the bar, good food, good service. Couple came in a few minutes before 7. Manager asked if they were told they were closing. Couple said the front door says 8 o'clock. We piped up and said the website says 8 o'clock. She answered,..."I don't care what it says, I'm the manager and we're closing!" Tactful....More

We haven't been dining out much but decided we needed a good burger. Neither of us eat seafood and I'm lactose intolerant so our choices are limited. I had my usual burger which is always really good. My husband had a steak and cheese sandwich...and he said it was the best one he's ever had. The restaurant is following all of the protocols, distance dining, masks, etc. We had a very nice lunch. Some of the cocktails listed on the card on the table sounded like they'd be really good but I don't want to spend $12 to try something I might not like. It would be nice if they had a flight of cocktails like the beer breweries do. Just a suggestion.More

We decided to go here for a great NYE dinner. It was nothing short of perfection. It was nice to see a Mint Julip on the menu and the Brussel sprouts were great! I had the Rice noodle salad with steak. The homemade ginger dressing...was so good and paired perfectly with the mandarins in the salad. My partner had the Marsala which was on point. The homemade bread was quite delicious as well. The service was friendly and efficient. We will definitely make it a point to return!More

Enjoyed the emphasis on local foods and vegetarian options here. Lovely brussel sprouts appetizer, local brews, the mushroom risotto was superb. Recommend you try this place. Your epicurean tastes satisfied while keeping it local.

We visited Urban Element on the recommendation of a friend and we're glad we did! I call it a hidden gem because it's in the opposite direction off the interstate from the stores and chain restaurants in town. The service was fantastic (Sarah) and the...food was great, too. The regular menu seems a little limited but they supplement it with daily specials which you can find in Facebook. It was quiet the night we went but it wasn't too busy. As with many of the industrial/minimalist places it is open and probably loud when busy. We will definitely go back!More

I have been twice now with friends and had a great experience both times. The waitress was extremely friendly and helpful and the food was fresh and flavorful. I would definitely recommend dining here.

It was dinner time and we were headed south on I-295 when we saw the sign at Topsham for various restaurants. By mistake we took a left instead of a right and were turning around when my wife exclaimed " There is a restaurant right...here!" o we took a chance. Urban Elements is a bar with restaurant seating around the bar. It was a quiet Sunday night so we were seated promptly and greeted by our server Olivia. The menu touches on a little of everything but being near the coast I went for the Fried Clam dinner and my wife the Haddock sandwich. Both were prepared perfectly. The clams were lightly dipped in batter and fried just right. We also shared a Caesar salad, which was very good. Normally we don't do desserts for a lot of reasons but when I come across a bread pudding (or most any type of pudding) I will go for it. They had a bread pudding made with the way my grandmother used to make it and we added ice cream. Yummy! We definitely will make this stop again when the dinner urge hits us.More

Brought my out of state friends for lunch and we loved it. Local food prepared well; interesting ingredients and not your usual “pub food”. Consistently good salads and appetizers ( especially the Brussels sprouts 😋)

The food is very good, and the service exceptional. My father, who is hard-of-hearing, had a difficult time due to the noise level.
