TWO urban licks Ratings and Reviews

Two Urban Licks has been one of our favorite Atlanta restaurants for many years. As a family, we've chosen this restaurant to celebrate graduations, anniversaries, birthdays, and engagements. Yesterday at brunch, however, we were very disappointed in the food, the service, and the deplorable condition of the bathrooms. The food ordered by the four in our party did not arrive at the same time; one person had to wait over 5 minutes for his entree, after the other 3 entrees were brought to the table. Our waitress neglected the table the entire visit, although the restaurant wasn't crowded and didn't seem overly busy. The eggs benedict I ordered was unappetizing, as it was served undercooked and nearly cold. All of the bathrooms were very unclean with overflowing garbage cans, one clogged toilet, and wet floors. I politely reported this at the hostess desk, and, thirty minutes later, found the restrooms still in very unacceptable conditions. Although, we have often entertained out-of-town guests at Two Urban Licks and recommended the restaurant many times to our friends, I would hesitate to do either again.

This was my fourth time at two urban licks. The restaurant is very mature & sexy. You can go for a girls night out, or a date night. I wouldn't do a business trip because of the music, but other than that, it's never disappointed me. I will be back sooner than later. The brisket is thee best... hands down!

I found this place on Yelp and I'm so glad I did! My husband and I had dinner and drinks here on Saturday night and we could not have been more impressed. The ambiance, drinks, food, and live music were all great! I highly recommend for a date night, girls night- and I recently read that they have brunch! We will definitely be going back. 5 stars!

Our server was phenomenal. Very knowledgeable, professional and took great care of us. We went for a fun night out with friends and enjoyed great food, atmosphere and service. Food is pricey, but worth it. Well presented and delivered. Enjoyed everything about it.

Excellent food. Good service. Great social environment. Celebrated my birthday there on Saturday, October 15th. Two was very accomodating with each of our requests. Have been once before. Would definitely recommend and will be returning.

Two Urban Licks provides innovative dishes, a creative drink menu and a scenic atmosphere. The wait staff was excellent, however the check in and front desk did not meet the quality of the food as they were not attentive. Overall the experience was good as the food exceeded expectations.

Overall, our experience at your restaurant was average to above average. First of all, we were seated in others personal space at cheaply made IKEA furniture. Upon our request, the hostess sat us at a different table, which was fine. Second, our waiter was quite impersonal. He did not do anything wrong, he was just not very friendly. The salmon chips were delicious and presented well. The crab cake was average. The blackened tuna was cooked perfectly... Medium rare. The extra side of butternut squash was tasty, but some pieces were undercooked while others were done. Apple pastry lacked enough filling... Too much puff pastry to fruit ratio. And not enough ice cream too. Prices were too high for the atmosphere and food quality.

I've been a big fan for years. Two complaints from our last meal. The shrimp curry description on the menu says eggplant, peppers, etc. The dish has shrimp and sauce and no rice or veggies. There were three pieces of cubed eggplant and the peppers were serrano and the dish was too hot for my wife to eat so I had to trade with her, the menu was not specific on what kind of peepers, adding one word would have avoided this problem. The crabcake was one small to modest crabcake again with nothing else but a smear of mayonnaise sauce on the plate. I don't state this because I wish to dissuade customers from going. I love the place. The appetizers are good and large portions. The scallops are a nice dish, the meat dishes are hearty but the crabcakes and the shrimp were way too nouvelle portion wise for my money. Please fix this because it is a great restaurant and I want to be able to go there without having to navigate the menu to get my money's worth. I am not expecting large portions but I should be able to split an app and have an entree and be quite sated. PS the balsamic and olive oil with the bread was better than the butter smear with honey.

I have been to TWO numerous times over the past 3 years. It my husband and I favorite restaurant. The food is consistently great. This past weekend I took my niece for her 25th birthday. She loved it. Our server was good until it got busy then he disappeared. I even had to get up and go to the wait station to get my own straw after asking numerous times. It did not ruin our time, however, because he had done so well prior to it getting busy.
We will always return. Love you TWO!!!!

We enjoyed the Sunday brunch. If the weatger is nice- make a reservation on the patio. Its over looking the beltline, which is a fabulous way to get there. They also have complimentary valet for those less likely to bike/walk. Strongly suggest the fish and grits, as well as the salmon chips! We thought the donuts were just ok. We will go back again soon!

I've been with my husband several times and will return because he loves it, but the kitchen was off their game. My eggs were undercooked , and even after sending them back to be redone, they were inedible.
Went to lots of places with family this weekend, and this place certainly left us speechless. Just not in a good way
I will say our server was great though.

Wonderful experience. My wife and I we're celebrating our 7 year wedding anniversary. We received the outdoor seating I requested upon making reservations. Our server was extremely friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. After dinner, she brought us a dessert along with 2 glasses of champagne. This was an unexpected surprise. We could not have asked for a better experience! Not only was the service and ambience outstanding, the dinner was fantastic. She had the bar steak and I had the scallops and we started with the empanadas. I would recommend it all!!

The food is great, created with fantasy , special tastes.
The parking doesn't offer just valet parking, but the restaurant is accessible from the belt line, so you can park your car nierby than easy to get there just walking . The staff is friendly and polite.
I certainly will go back to this place !

The salmon chips were excellent. I had the scallops which were good but the serving of 4 medium scallops for $28 was over priced. One of us got the beef brisket which was over half fat so he sent it back. Overall the food was good but not a good value.

Dinner with my children after a fun day at a Georgia Tech game! The empanadas were fabulous. The pork and brisket and scallops were excellent. Be aware that some sides or sauces have quite a spicy kick, so if that is not your thing ask them to put it on the side. It is very loud later into the evening, but the place looks very cool!

Very disappointed with our dinner last night. The lamb was overly spicey - to the point that my lips were burning and I could not enjoy my very nice bottle of wine. Over spicing a dish is such a chef short-cut - by over spicing, you don't let the true flavors of the meal come out.
This was once a unique restaurant, but now it is a place that is justing turning high dollar tables and serving average food.

The restaurant was slam packed yet the wait staff was extremely accommodating and had our food out in no time at all. They also did a great job getting us new drinks and checking on us often. I was very impressed with the service we received!

Two Urban Licks is consistently outstanding for food and service. I've been there probably a dozen times for everything from other's Day brunch to a romantic first date. Portions are a little on the large side, but you can split without ticking off the kitchen staff. Every server I've had there has been exceptional!

Our table had a great view off downtown Atlanta. Our waiter was well-versed in the menu and specials. I highly recommend starting with the salmon chips. The bar steak was cooked to perfection. Our waiter surprised us with a dessert for our anniversary.

Esther Chi our coordinator for Two Urban Licks event was unmatched! Her skill and follow up on every detail of our event was extraordinary.
Excellent food, detail oriented service for all of us not just the Bride and Groom.
Cannot say enough thank yous for our event!
We will be back sooner than later, as it is one of our favorite spots in Atlanta!

Were seated for roughly 15-20 minutes before waiter acknowledged out table. Requested gluten free menu several times and were told they were being printed, never received one. Took waiter another 20 min to even put food order in after we placed order. 5 of 6 food items came out and took the last over 10 minutes to come to table. When you're trying to be polite and wait for everyone to be served, it results in cold, unappealing eggs. Was very disappointed in this experience.

The brisket and eggs was absolutely delicious. My wife's salmon chips had a few too many bones, but at least they were easy to spot. They still tasted great. A couple of small things were forgotten on our order (missing a side that would have been too much, my wife's bellini came out as a mimosa) but it ended up not being a big deal and we know brunch is hectic. Based on our table location our server had to spend a great deal of time with his back directly to us while he helped another one of his tables, and by that I mean his butt was right next to us. Next time we'll request not to sit at a two-top in the middle of the aisle.

Good food and service but REALLY loud for dining. It's a happenin' spot, and I'd love to go back and hang at the bar and listen to music (the band was great). If you want to hold a conversation with your companion(s), I wouldn't recommend as the first choice. If it's a girls' night out -- go for it.
