Reviewed 19 August 2014

Had a work lunch here last week. Food was good, we all had burgers, truffle fries were fantastic. Staff seemed a little confused, the whole "team" approach did not seem to be working for them, each one assuming the other was taking care of us. Note. We wanted outside seating but they can only accommodate parties of 4 outside, we were 5.

“I wanted to love this place but the staff made sure we didn't!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014

I don't know what it is about Morristown eateries but we can't catch a break and Urban Table does not disappoint when it comes to rude staff. The hostess was pleasant enough but clearly overwhelmed. She was solid to us and got us a table in a reasonable amount of time. The hostess was not rude - if she was we would have left then and there. While waiting for our table, some seats at the bar came available so we decided to sit and have a drink. It took over 5 minutes to get a bartender to come up and give us a drink menu. They were not busy enough to warrant that. He curtly answered a few questions and stated he will be back. Over the next 10+ minutes he never approached our area of the bar despite making eye contact a couple of time and seeing we waived him over. Well our table was now ready - so much for a drink... Don't suppose it matters much because the drinks are overpriced and the beer list is woefully inadequate. Dinner - the menu is intriguing and the atmosphere is right up our alley so Kudos for those! The wait staff introduced themselves - all three of them...separately... Now having three people taking care of different things at the table might sound like a great idea on paper but the execution at this establishment was critically flawed. None of them was outwardly rude like the bartender however they did lack the attention to detail that is paramount in a dining experience. We had to even continually ask for something as menial as our waters to be refilled - not what you would expect with three wait staff tending to a small table. The dinner itself was good. My dinner companion did end up with two walnut shells in her salad. I don't know if we will go back although I did see some things on the menu I wanted to try. I don't know where hip became synonymous with rude and incompetence but maybe that is what Morristown itself is trying so hard to become. I will try a few more Morristown eateries before I close the chapter and I am hopeful they will be more of a success than this one.

“Wait staff was clueless...”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

So four of us, two couples went to Sunday breakfast. How easy could our order have been? Four orders of the huevos rancheros. Well needless to say, only three orders came out and once placed on the table asked. "Is everyone good?" WHAT we are missing a breakfast, 4 people three plates. They didn't get it. Then rushing to get the 4th plate it came from the kitchen with missing elements, it looked nothing like the three others. Well it went back again and came out ok, though by that time we had all finished our meals so we watched the last of our group eat. They tried some service recovery in the apology and removed it from our bill, but it just isnt enjoyable to not have all the plates served at once. i see in other reviews we are not the only ones who notice the service is off...

“Great meal and service. Recommend. ”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

Stoppes on our way to NYC for lunch. Food was very good, fresh and flavorful. House watermwlon-cucumber infused vodka was yummy, and beer suggestion was spot on. Portions were just right. Would be regulars if we lived closer.

“Good, casual place”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

This was my 3rd time eating at Urban Table. The menu is really good, lots of fresh, local choices. The greeters are very friendly upon arrival. Even the servers are friendly but there is something off on the service. It's just not together. The bottom line for me is that the food was good, service not so much.
