Why did you choose this restaurant?
Love that it’s so central, always looks busy and especially enticing when it’s sunny.
Have you dined at Urban Brasserie before?
Never dined at Urban Brasserie before and have always wanted to. Heard great things about it from friends.
What was your first impression when you arrived?
Urban Brasserie looks gorgeous from the outside and really warm and welcoming inside. There’s a bar area on the left with a lively atmosphere and restaurant on the right from the entrance. We were welcomed by very friendly staff and shown to our gorgeous booth, which was really lovely as it gives diners some privacy whilst still taking in the venue’s vibrancy.
What did you order?
I ordered Marrbury smoked salmon with Thai jelly, pickled cucumber & rocket to start, Crisp sea bass on a Greek salad for main and Apple & berry crumble crème brûlée for dessert. All three dishes were incredible.
What did you drink?
The Dine Out Scotland deal at Urban Brasserie includes a glass of fizz with each meal, so I started off with that. I then ordered another glass of Chardonnay to enjoy with my fish dishes.
How would you rate the service?
Definitely 5 out of 5. My partner has an allergy and staff made sure that his dishes were clear of one particular ingredient. The reassurance and attention to detail made us relax more. All team members wore white shirts making them look very professional.
What dish did you prefer?
I loved my Seabass on a Greek salad, but must admit my other half’s Roast chicken breast & crushed potatoes with a mushroom & tarragon cream was to die for.
If you were to go back what would you try next?
Roast chicken breast & crushed potatoes with a mushroom & tarragon cream. The sauce was incredible.
What did you think of the restaurant’s setting?
I loved that the restaurant is a walking distance from George Square. The fun weekend atmosphere coming from the bar makes you want to continue the evening there. The outside seating was also lovely - great in the Summer.
What was the highlight of your meal?
Honestly? What a fantastic deal our meal was for such great food and service. £15.95 for 2 courses, a glass of bubbles and all to appreciate quite high standards of great cooking.
The Dine Out Scotland £15.95 deal is really leaving us with no excuse, but to go out every weekend now. What a great way to try out new restaurants. We were so impressed with Urban Brasserie’s food and service and would definitely go back.
