OC Weekly's Description
Even before you come, you already know Urban will have a mac and cheese, a burger and pastas on the menu. This is the type of place that sticks to the tried-and-tested. But what you won’t anticipate is that the mac and cheese has the good stench of Gruyere, that it’s topped with crisp, crumbled prosciutto, or that when you take a forkful, the cheese trails off in honest-to-goodness stretchy webs as if you’re eating a pizza. And there’s the white-meat chicken strips that top the buttermilk-fried-chicken salad—a salad that also features cucumbers, pumpkin seeds, dried cranberries and actual cornbread torn into chunks. The pieces of hen are hand-breaded and fried delicately, resulting in something so moist actual juices burst forth.
Tips from foursquare
The happy hour menu is quite good & not expensive
Order the skirt steak salad you won't be disappointed!
Bleu cheesecake! Get the Zinfandel port that it pairs with and you will be pleasantly surprised.

Relaxed, upscale atmosphere with a modern feel. Great "boutique" wine list. A few craft beers. Food and service was fantastic! Can't wait to go back and try a few more items!
