Urban Tide Ratings and Reviews
I ordered a half dozen raw oysters that the server said were brought in from Connecticut. For an appetizer costing a whopping $18, I expected some rather spectacular oysters! The ones that were delivered to the table were disappointingly tiny, one so small that I was sure it was the residue left after the oyster was removed from the shell. I pointed it out to the server, not wanting to be critical of her because she was an excellent waitress. But I mentioned it so that she could tell the chef. Minutes later, she did return with three extra oysters, but still very small in size. My mom and I each had a salad that was delicious, but everything we ordered (except the cheddar biscuits) was pretty much overpriced.
This joint was in our hotel. If it wasn't for the fact that the managaer and waitress were so nice I would have given it a lower rating. Food was horrible. Sent back a dish (chicken too dry). And another friend sent their back as food came out cold. I feel bad leaving a lower review as the place did try their best to take care of us but even with excellent service if food isn't right it's hard to praise. I will say this, desserts are limited BUT there is another place I hotel that serves amazing desserts and the waiter and manager did bring us an array of desserts from this other place. So they do try hard to make things right. Might give them one more chance.
We were in town for a convention and staying at this hotel (Hyatt Regency Orlando), and we chose this restaurant for convenience to have lunch with a local relative. We did not want to wander too far because time was constrained, so we chose this place not having high expectations. However, we were pleasantly surprised.
It is located a level down from the lobby in a quiet corner with a view out to the garden and pool. The offerings are imaginative and tasty, and the service efficient and attentive. We had a great lunch.
We had a business lunch and a business dinner here. The food is well prepared, but it just seems unimaginative--that is true of Florida in general, though. The lunch salads were good. For dinner, I had shrimp and grits, but it lacked a light touch--the cheese was just sprinkled on the grits like breakfast grits. The service was good, and the value was pretty good for a hotel restaurant. We were surprised that the restaurant was half empty for dinner, given that it's a 1600-room hotel.
Wonderful for dining with friends...Quiet with attentive but non-intrusive service and wonderful food. We rarely dine in a hotel's restaurant opting instead for neighborhood jewels. This was a wonderful surprise in Orlando's Hyatt Hotel next to the Convention Center
The restaurant was expensive with a very unusual menu. We had the deep fried whole fish for two. Plenty of food but not a very attractive presentation and we did not enjoy the meal. We had a challenge making a selection from the menu, so we settled on the fish. I suggest you look at the menu before your visit.
Because it was the builder's show, it was a challenge making a last minute reservation at the other restaurants, we settled on this restaurant. Should have know better!
The wait staff were great, super friendly and quick to ensure we were happy. The reason for a lower review on the food is the crab cakes were very dry and overall mealy with crumbs/dough and there was cilantro in the octopus, which I can't stand. Otherwise an excellent experience!
Oh, and another thing, if your not staying at the hotel the parking garage charges $22 so keep that in mind.
The food and the service were outstanding. No complaints whatsoever. Server was great. The food was brought to the table, as ordered, in a timely manner and hot. The atmosphere was conducive to a business conversation. Tables were well spaced for privacy. My only complaint was that I found it too pricey for a lunch.
Wow! Every single dish [of 6] was perfect!!!!!!
I highly recommend Urban Tide. We had been when it was Napa and that was one of the worst dining experiences I had in years. But I'm always on the lookout for great seafood so I gave UT a shot - with high trepidation. And it was wonderful.
We had the Plantain Crusted Diver Scallops, Florida Atlantic Swordfish with Maine lobster bisque, the Grilled Bread Pudding [and I usually avoid Bread pudding, but this dish was incredible!], the Intense chocolate mousse [also full of powerful flavors, wonderful] - but the show stopper was the Smoked Fettuccini Pasta. Absolutely fantastic!
BUT - and here's the only [yet very big] negative - several of these dishes are NOT on the regular menu, only the Magical Dining.
As much as I really loved the food, I see this as simple bait & switch! And I really dislike the practice.
Yes, I'll go back; everything was so good, and there's lots more to try. Hopefully the Magical Dining items will make their way into the menu in the meantime.
fyi, regular menu prices were quite fair.
I had visited this restaurant several years ago and on that visit I had an excellent experience. The restaurant had recently opened and the fish was excellent. I was left with the desire to visit again. However, the restaurant is located in the Hyatt hotel and parking is difficult even if you valet. The drop off is always crowded and there are long waits.
We decided to visit once again mainly due to our memory of the food. This time the meal was less gratifying. Although the restaurant lists itself as a seafood restaurant, we certainly noted a shift in their focus. The seafood (fish mainly) selections were limited and the menu items were more reflective of a carnivorous diet. The service was slow and non-attentive. The waitress did not clear the table after the first course, a salad which I nearly choked on because the grilled ricotta was so dry. To cap it off, the waitress brought us the check without clearing a single plate from the table.
Overall an unfavorable experience which at least removed my earlier desire to return.
I don't usually write reviews and, the fact that I have, reflects my disappointment.
We had been to this spot when it was Napa. Don't remember the food being as good then and we had an excellent meal. Everything from appetizers to desert was outstanding. We had the brussel sprouts and then selected the Magical Dining Menu. All extremely good. Service was very good as well. Had a good, reasonably priced wine. We will return.
It was truly good! We haven't found a place here in Orlando where fine dining really tastes that exquisite! We had the ceviche for appetizer and it was really good. The closest I've had to the real Peruvian ceviche. The entree we had was part of the specials for the day, the trio (Halibut, scallop and grilled shrimp) all that in a bed of steamed spinach, mash of sweet potatoes and this delicate passion fruit sauce! Amazing! Enjoyed up to the last bite! The fish was cooked to perfection! Very recommended! The restaurant is inside a Hyatt Regency Hotel on international drive, the ambience is very quiet and chic, the service very friendly and prompt. No complaints. We we were just surprised it wasn't a big hit on Saturday night, since it was practically empty when we got there around 7:45 pm. Definitely will be back to try the rest of the menu!
Everything was fine except the service, which was honestly terrible. We were taking customers out so it was embarrassing and stressful to stay on top of. I think it may have been unique to our server. I also had lunch here another day and the server I had was wonderful.
