“Fresh food prepared and served cafeteria style, unique atmosphere!”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Family lives nearby, frequents Urban Plates, came highly recommended. Urban Plates lived up to the recommendation. There was something for everyone in the family with so many different tastes. Fresh salads, healthy lunch with meat and vegetables, sandwiches, braises and stews, and desserts. Prices very reasonable for service, quality, quickness of preparation, and variety of options. We dined for lunch take-out style. Arrived early before opening and there was already a line outside the door. This alone should alert you as you consider dining options in the area. We will return. Enjoy!

“Great Selection!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

We went to Urban Plates for a family celebration. Now, you know how hard it is to please all of your family, but everyone left happy! The turkey meatloaf was amazing as were the salads, soups, desserts, service and drinks. The only bad thing about this restaurant is the line to order your food. It's a little confusing and difficult to carry your order to the checkout. However, because everyone was happy and well fed, it was all good.

“Don't miss it!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Healthy and fresh food. The seating and the lighting are pleasant and encourage meeting new people. The outside tables and the fireplace are very charming. There is a wide selection of hand tossed salads. My favorite is the Urban Grove Antioxidant salad. It had lettuce, tomatoes, blueberries, strawberries, walnuts and your choice of different kinds of cheese and bread on the side. Next time I will visit the sandwiches section. Dana the manager is excellent and just all over the place helping and managing!

“Get your veggie fix here!!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

Lots of great healthy choices including brussels sprouts with turkey bacon and grilled broccolini. For the carnivores, there's grilled chicken and turkey meatloaf. My husband went for lunch and insisted we try it for dinner - on the same day!! Good prices to go along with very tasty food.
