Always great food, superb service, and perfect atmosphere to have the best times! Love that the menu changes with the seasons, and that in summer they use items right out of their own garden, not to mention an awesome patio to dine on in the summer!! Love this place...

Andy was incredible! So personable and very knowledgeable of the menu as well as the extensive cocktail list that we thoroughly enjoyed. Andy's drink and appetizer recommendations were spot on and we appreciated his on point feedback.The atmosphere was sophisticated, intimate and very comfortable. We will definitely be back!

The Prime Rib was excellent - and we loved the recommended wine (Kew Gamay Noir). Also the cheesecake was very good.

First time visit. Took friends from out of town for lunch. We were the only ones there, but that was due to the weather. Our friends were only in town for the day. It was a lovely place to take them. The dishes were very flavourful. We all ended up having the Halibut. The serving was small, but so very good. We had the mussels and the meat board as starters with a bottle of wine, so the small main portion was accepting. The wine selection is great also. Ended up having a second bottle. Our server was very attentive, and made our visit feel special. Highly recommend for a special occasion.

Excellent food for the main but for the starter we had the charcuterie. Plenty of meats but a pate or onion chutney would have been nice. Just mustard left it a bit dry. Great bread and presentation.

I have been going to the Urban Dish for a number of years. My sisters and I meet there for lunch on Wednesdays once a month when they have all their wines on for 1/2 price! The food it fabulous and the staff are awesome.

We were celebrating a birthday and had a satisfying and fun experience. The cauliflower and curried butter soup was to die for. Andy made our lunch very enjoyable with his sense of humour and his consistent attention. We are never disappointed at The Urban Dish.

The waitress was friendly, engaging and very helpful with menu options considering the sensitivity of the guests. The courses were delivered in a timely fashion, with artistic plating with proper portioning. The meal was well seasoned and exceptionally tasty.

I’ve always loved Urban Dish but was very much disappointed this last time. My friend and I ordered the prime rib sandwich with salad. Both our salads had slimy greens and were returned to the kitchen to exchange for fries....we didn’t want to give the salad a second try (the server thought the salad was fine and said it came out the fridge or box that way.......just because that’s how it came doesn’t mean it’s fine!!!!!! The first bite of my sandwich was completely underwhelming. The beef was barely warm, tasteless and a pasty beige colour. I also thought the taste was a bit off but that may have been attributed to the wilted greens in it or the beef was starting to turn. We didnt even get through half of the sandwich. The server took our meals back and very kindly comped them, which was very appreciated. I’ve had this sandwich before and it was the best beef sandwich I’ve ever had and was so looking forward to having it again but that wasn’t the case. My friend spoke to one of her acquaintances who frequents your establishment and she expressed her disappointment with the food as well. I don’t know why the food was sub-par, new owner and/or new chef but we won’t be returning any time soon.

From the moment we stepped in the door we felt welcomed, taken directly to our table and served right away. Our server Holly was extraordinary, she knew all of the dishes and described them well and could answer any question. She was very pleasant, attentive and accommodating. She promoted the restaurant and its dishes very well including the fresh garden tomatoes. I had known about the garden before and it was one of the features that drew me there. The food was nicely presented and was perfectly and tastily flavoured. It was nice that the servings weren't too large but still left you pleasantly fulfilled. I had room for dessert for a change and the creme brûlée was light and lovely. I am looking forward to coming back and trying more dishes perhaps the prime rib Sunday special. Thank you for an excellent evening.

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. Cocktails were amazing. Mussels for appetizer was amazing. Wife had the Halibut for main course and really enjoyed it. I had the Tomahawk Pork Chop and it ranks up there with the best I've ever had. Cheesecake for dessert was delicious. Our waitress Brittney really made the night. Her knowledge and advice on the food and wine, plus her very friendly personality were a pleasure.

Celebrating our daughter’s birthday. This is her favourite restaurant. We had a great evening. Everything was excellent as usual. Friendly energetic staff. Delicious food that wows is every time. There is always a variety of flavours and textures that come together to provide dishes that blow us away.

We have had bad experiences at Urban Dish, but it’s been over a year and we decided to give it another try for our anniversary dinner. At first it was good, the appetizers we delicious, and I told the waitress that the restaurant redeemed itself, we ordered our mains, which was the chefs special, my wife couldn’t eat hers because it was tasteless, so I ate basically alone, I ate rare duck. we ordered more drinks and I had two glasses of water waiting. Only saving part of the experience was DQ was next door to get ice cream. Go back? Nope....

The food was excellent and the service even better.
I had the vegetable medley which was eggplant topped with seasonal vegetables and my friend had the chicken. Both were delicious.
I've eaten at this restaurant before and had Merv as our server. She provided the best service I have ever received anywhere (both times). It's difficult to get good service these days but Merv excels at it. Not in a cloying, or fake way, but genuinely friendly and knowledgeable.
Keep this woman, as she is extraordinary - better yet, give her a raise.
Kudos.

My family had a wonderful time at Urban Dish. Brittany was an excellent waitress and bartender, with a quick wit and skilled hand at making some of the best cocktails I’ve ever tasted. The five of us ordered multiple dishes and each was delicious and cooked perfectly. We highly recommend it and are excited to come back!

An easy location to drive by but once inside we were greeted, given menus amd water. The restaurant was half full of friendly guests, it felt smalk and cozy and our meal was ordered and aten within an hour. The proteins were great and i loved how they used veggies from their own garden.

Creative & original. For serious foodies, this is the place. Where else can you find octopus with rhubarb? If we were to go to a restaurant, while on vacation, a second time, this would be it.

We had a lovely dinner. Disappointed to have some items that were on the menu not available, but plenty of options otherwise. The service was excellent and very friendly and the drinks were excellent.
