My husband and I finally went out for dinner last night for the first time since Covid-19 started and we chose Urban Dish for our breakout dinner. We were totally thrilled by the food, setup and friendliness of the owner Jen and her staff. The...mussels were to die for and the calamari and pasta dish surpassed our expectations as well. The attention to detail and service was certainly 5 stars all the way. We look forward to our next visit.More

To celebrate Mother's Day this year, I ordered a dinner for two for my wife and I. I can't say enough good things about our take out experience. Andy, the gentleman I spoke with, got the order perfect and was very pleasant to speak with....The food itself was packed well and was absolutely delicious. Our order came with a bottle of wine and two cocktails - their Ceasars are delicious - best I've had! All in all, if they are able to impress us this much with takeout, I can't wait to experience them for dine in! As much as we would selfishly love to keep this place a secret, our experience was SOOO good, how could we not want others to experience this hidden gem.More

We picked up from Urban Dish yesterday, and will most definately be doing it again. Such a warm welcome from the friendly staff. Our food was beautifully presented to us, with a heartfelt thank-you card. My husband and I ordered from the UD-licious menu and...had the lamb and the trout for main course. Everything was delicious, we would recommend that you try this restaurant, sooner rather than later, as we would love to see them re-open to the public when this pandemic is over. Thank you to all the staff for such a treat❤️.More

We, like many, have ordered a lot of takeout this year and our three course meal with wine from urban dish takes the number one spot. The food was presented so nicely with a thank you card from the owner. It was also delicious and...traveled well home to table. On top of that, the staff members were genuinely very appreciative of us supporting their local business. Can't wait to order again soon.More

I honestly don't even know where to begin with this review, I have dined in at this restaurant before and it was fantastic. It was two tables of 8 and not one person was unhappy with their meal. However this review is about my COVID...takeout experience . I was doing a four course challenge fun little COVID friendly outing idea. Basically you go out with a partner and rock paper scissors for drink, appetizer, meal and dessert. The winner of each round gets to select where you go for each course. When it got to the appetizer my partner won and happened to Google best appetizers in Barrie and Urban Dish came up . So sure enough we call the store as we had difficulty loading the online menu. The gentlemen that answered the phone was more than happy to explain the options to us . We decided on the Bruschetta ….LET ME TELL YOU !!!! this was not your average Bruschetta this was Bruschetta on a WHOLE OTHA LEVEL.... talk about taste bud explosion. Not goin to lie I was a little thrown off at first , WHY!?! well because this bruschetta wasn't made with your typical ingredients no sirrr it was made with ingredients that included pear and papaya , yup you read that right. Who would of thought , well holy smokes folks you have to and I mean HAVE TO try this. It was amazingly delicious and don't let the ingredients throw you off because while it might sound different and taste different ( different amazing but different) you wouldn't even really think wow I cant believe this has those ingredients in it ! absolutely DIVINE , also it comes with a nice sprinkling of feta and a in house made balsamic reduction that is sure to satisfy. I sincerely hope they keep this item on the menu. Also aside from the delicious food they put so much thought into how they present it to you. The owner himself presented us our order in a beautiful box with lovely red cellophane a nice note on how to re-heat and serve as well as a "thank you" card for supporting their business. This is a beautiful restaurant, owned by genuine people that provide the community with delicious food that they put so much thought into . I hope to see this restaurant remain successful and I cant wait to be able to dine in again. I highly recommend you either dine in or take out , I can promise you will not regret it !More

In the summer we were visiting the area with our family & enjoyed an incredible patio dinner under the lights with blankets, amazing service, & delicious food and cocktails. We enjoyed it so much that since we have purchased a condo in the area and...were excited to see this amazing restaurant is in business & we want to keep it that way! 2 weeks ago we decided to give them a call and order take out and they did not disappoint!! Jen is probably one of the most customer-service driven people I have ever met in the industry and really cares about her patrons and even our experience outside of the restaurant! TOP NOTCH! The FOOD is to DIE for!!! We brought. home and did the warm-up option, per the instructions on the packages, there was a wonderful thank you card to our family thanking us for the support!!! Well, Urban Dish and Jen!!! We are spreading the word about your amazing establishment and will be loyal customers to you!! Thank you for the amazing experience food and service! Dionne & ScottMore

Had an amazing meal tonight from this local restaurant. We ordered from their UDlicious menu and everything was fantastic and done exactly as we asked. The coffee custard dessert was a special treat! It’s difficult to prepare fine takeout food in a pandemic but Urban...Dish certainly excelled tonight!More
