I love the ambience! The food was delicious and it was not too loud at all!

DO NOT eat here if you have to be gluten free. We read that the chef was able to accommodate and that the manager actually had celiac disease, so we were excited to try. When we got there our waiter actually told us they could give us some gluten free options but he would suggest us leaving. We should have listened. My daughter has been sick ever since.

The ambience of this restaurant is amazing. The food was good but not amazing so that’s why I gave it four stars . The cocktails were delicious. The service was very bad for us at first. It took almost 50 minutes just to order dinner from when we sat down at our table. We got drinks and then waited almost 45 minutes for our server to come back. After that it got much better which means there was something causing it but we didn’t even get a “sorry it’s taking long, or I’ll be with you soon”.

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and experience at Two Urban Licks. Cool atmosphere, excellent food and attentive service made our brunch very relaxing and much needed on a busy day. We’ll definitely be back!

Service was great. Waiter made great recommendations and our group of 6 girls all loved our apps and meals! Band started about half way through our dinner so it got a little loud but the band was excellent too! Great experience. Would definitely return.

It was way too dark. Food was good but portions were small. We had Oyster Appetizer, Empanadas, and Beef Brisket. Brisket should have been served with green veggie in addition to corn. Vodka and Soda was 11.00. House brand. Food was very good but portions were small, David was excellent server as were others. Biggest complaint was way too dark and tiny table, price vs portion. We sat upstairs

I'd been on a Saturday night for drinks and thought it would be quieter during the week. It wasn't. The menu has a lot of options - seafood, bbq. I had the tuna and my boyfriend had the brisket and both were phenomenal. The lighting was dim so it was difficult to read the menu and it was very loud. There's also no parking (unless you valet), so we parked on the street and walked through the parking lots to the restaurant. A little pricey, and well worth it.

I was visiting from California and a friend recommended this restaurant. I am not the type to write reviews but the food and atmosphere was exceptional. Being a foodie with access to everything on the west coast, I was skeptical and really had no expectations. I was so delighted and loved the entire experience. It’s a little tricky finding the location and entrance, but so worth the efforts. I wish we had this restaurant in Southern California! You will not be disappointed.

Just wasn’t impressed with the menu. Felt it was average; nothing unique.
They sat us directly in front of the pit. Way too smokey and hot. When we talked, you could see us “blowing smoke” in the sun’s rays coming through the windows! Had to take showers once we got home to get the “bonpit” smoke odor off.
Service was great. Very informed server when it came to menu and drink questions.

valet wait was incredibly long - I have never waited so long at any restaurant just to park.

the food was just 'good' and I thought the choices for vegetables was lacking.

Salmon chips are the best but these folks could really use a better air conditioning plan! Place is always hot inside.

The food was great. We ordered the burrada plate as an appetizer, and lamb and steak for dinner- both were cooked really well. My only complaint is the service. Our waitress was really nice and forgot our drinks, but she took them off the tab anyway. Also, I called ahead because it was boyfriends birthday and told the staff. The waitress even commented that it was his birthday when checking IDs but they didn't bring out a dessert or do anything for that. I'm just not sure what the point was of telling them it's a special occasion when nothing was done. Overall though, definitely eat here. Great food, somewhat expensive, awesome atmosphere.

Great experience, we received a complementary dessert for our friend’s birthday. The cocktails were a little sweeter than expected, but flavor overall! I went for a Malbec from Argentina for my second drink and it was perfect. Food was just as amazing as the ambiance...“the burger” and the brisket were so good!!

Hidden in a loading dock but bursting with lively personality, TWO Urban licks is a fun, tasty and reliable restaurant for a group. It’s modern take on Southern Dishes and excellent cocktails have me coming back.

Everything about dinner was excellent! The only exception is the noise level is extreme. I guess this comes with being a very popular establishment. It made it very difficult to have a conversation with my fellow diner. This is an excellent restaurant for group dining where a quiet intimate atmosphere is not necessary. The Briskit was outstanding in both taste and serving portion!

The food was incredible, however the service could have been just a bit better (the server was just inconsistent). Other than that I would recommend this place to ANYONE! The food is the best!

This place is a go-to for my wife and I to celebrate special occasions. The menu is extensive and the food, divine. We went recently and our waiter, Caine, was so polite and energetic and made the meal a great experience.

The smokiness of the restaurant's a bit of a distraction, but the food is solid and the location can't be beat (we did a 45-minute post-dinner walk on the Beltline).

We had to wait 25 min after our on time reservation arrival for our table to be ready. Once seated we sat for another 20 minutes before our server greeted us and took our drink order. Service was very slow the entire evening. A side dish was brought to the table 10 min after receiving the main course.

I had high hopes for this restaurant but left very disappointed. It was our first time visiting Two Urban Licks while on our trip to Atlanta. It was quite Smokey in there and my eyes pushed thru the irritation but I started to smell like the smoke which kind of bummed me to be so dressed up and walk out smelling smokey (although it was a delicious smell while we ate). Our waiter had someone else bring our food and it was the wrong food and we never saw him again after. We had to constantly stop other people’s waiters to assist us which made us feel like our tip should have gone to them. We had one cocktail with hopes of having a few but had no one actually come to our table to ask if we needed or wanted anything. It was unfortunate. When we wanted to leave we asked a walking past us employee to ask him to come by our table and not sure if she told him but he never came. Finally some random guy who never told us who he was came up to us and asked what was going on and we politely said we just needed our check so we could go, he comped our cocktails (I’m not quite sure why because we didn’t tell him about our waiter because we didn’t know who he was) but it was very kind but still didn’t make us feel good about the whole experience there. Food was great....when we got the right plates and the style of the restaurant was neat. We unfortunately won’t be attending again. It was crowded which was duh understandable for a Saturday but I had staff push my chair so many times as I ate which irritated me even more and I’m super scrawny so my chair wasn’t sticking out much to be honest. I’m sure everyone’s experience will be better than ours but sadly ours was mediocre. Sorry.

We went to celebrate a birthday. Cain and Curt gave excellent service. The Mai Tai was the best drink- but all cocktails were excellent. We had the scallops and brisket- absolutely delicious. Wonderful atmosphere but was getting crowded when we left which was around 9pm. We will definitely be back!!

Took two friends that had never met or been there before. Service was great - helped with the selections and was on target with each one. Food was an exciting experience for all three of us as we are all foodies.
It was an hour drive but well worth the journey. Have recommended already to several people and will return!
