I really lucked out by booking my hotel at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar because Urbana is located within the hotel. Ate there three night in a row. Could not get enough. Nice atmosphere but the food is what really sets it apart. Worth a try...More

Fine choice of bourbons and scotch. She knew what "straight up" meant for bourbon. A bit noisy. Did not sample the food. Was staying at the hotel.

Thanks EagleEyeBoston, We do have a good selection of Whisk(e)y for an Italian restaurant. Our Amaro list is also pretty cool, if you're into that kind of thing. See you next time, Ryan

Three of us had dinner here. Although the service was good and the chicken tasty, my crab cake burgers were too salty, and my wife's soup bland. The food was average for an above average cost.

and service was only ordinary - very friendly service but ordinary. We only had one meal here - went out of our way not to go back.

We were staying at the Kimpton Palomar and decided to have breakfast over at Urbana, the in-house restaurant. It was a wonderfully prepared, sumptuous meal. The wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. The service was very quick. Highly recommend.

Thanks Archit984!!! Nutella French Toast is by far my favorite!!! Brunch is also a great option on the weekends for you if you're a late riser, bottomless pizza anyone? Cheers, Ryan

Not much to write here, really. The drinks were small pours, the chicken meatballs were tasty, service was slow, and the seats are uncomfortable. Our waitress didn’t bring the second appetizer we ordered and forgot my bosses’ water.

Thanks JNette, Looks like we missed the mark here a few times, hopefully we will see you again, if only for the meatballs. Cheers, Ryan

Located at the Kimpton Hotel Palomar, Urbana is a great bar and restaurant with super cocktails, friendly staff and lots of fun. I didn't eat here this time but I'd love to return and try some of their dishes.

I should preface this by saying I have high expectation for Kimpton Hotels and restaurants that advertise homemade pasta. What our server had in enthusiasm and knowledge was not matched in any way by the setting or food. Operationally I’d give them a D. Had...More

The homemade pasta here was excellent. The service was very good, and the dessert quite tasty too. Prices are not cheap, but the food was good.
