Small outfit with excellent service. The food and drinks are excellent and the atmosphere is very intimate. Pizza is made on right there in own oven - you can see - and it tastes GREAT!

A group of 7 went and the people couldn't have been nicer. The food was amazing and the wine selection was equally good. I will be back in the DC area and will for sure go back to this restaurant

Ended up at Urbana after realizing how close it was to our hotel in Dupont Circle. We certainly were not expecting the phenomenal experience we had. Great wine selection, and the lamb chops were perfectly cooked. Lemon Semifreddo was remarkable as well.

The atmosphere is just great with different spaces inside. The menu hasn't many options so I opted for a pizza and loved it.

I went to a reception in this restaurant. We ate a number of truly delicious hors d'oeuvres. They were all beautifully presented and were as tasty as they looked. The locale was beautiful and the atmosphere was bustling and pleasant.

Looking for a place near Dupont Circle for an early meal. Didn't want to miss the Connecticut women against Oregon in the elite eight. Urbana is a very modern vibe Great oysters (a buck a piece at happy hour) good mussels and octopus. Great service. I will go back

We arrived late - 9:30 pm yet were welcomed for a limited menu dinner. Turned out well and the food was very good, nice wine selection and very relaxed atmosphere. Serve was good and I'd go there again.

We were staying close by and decided to try it. Made a reservation on Open Table - easy. Got there. Thought we had a good quiet table until the party of 8 sat down right in front of us. First off, we ordered drinks and an appetizer. Took about 10-15 minutes to get our drinks. When the 8-top sat down... More

Thanks for the feedback KoKonutGirl, We try to have at least one special per night, I am sorry this was not communicated to you. We do love the large groups that we are able to accommodate, especially during brunch, but our dining room is definitely not the quietest of places on a normal night. Hope to see you next time...

Thanks for the feedback slmnznc06, I would be totally bummed if it took too long to get coffee in the AM, we will remind our breakfast crew of the importance of caffeine.
