Will be greatly missed after 12 years! Food coming out of Matt Gordon's kitchen was always brilliant. Look for him to helm another kitchen somewhere soon!

Absolutely perfect experience from start to finish. We were hosting a large group (12+) and the Urban Solace team was nothing but accommodating, flexible, and patient. The ambiance and food were spectacular. More...

Great place for lunch with my sister after shopping! It’s a charming and friendly atmosphere. Lively, but not so loud that you can’t have a private conversation. The food was delicious and the range was wide enough to suit a carnivore like myself and a vegetarian like my sister. Our server was polite, helpful, and attentive but didn’t hang out with us. It was my first trip but will not be my last! More...

Love this place; from small groups, to larger groups (as with this visit), to just solo for lunch at the bar - it's always the same: outstanding food, relaxed and casual atmosphere, and a staff focused on courtesy and service. US&BS set up a table for 10, on a Sunday morning. The usual Bluegrass next door outside that provided a nice music backdrop and still able to keep up good conversation while inside. Service was impeccable as always - ask and you receive, with just the right amount of attention that you don't feel neglected, but given enough space to enjoy the meal and your company. Food was up to the usual standard, with the Bennys and Salmon bowls almost perfect. The Croque, while outstanding in taste and flavor, was a bit "messy" - guess I was expecting a tight-collar French presentation. Maybe it was Urban Solace's take on it: comfort food - but ultimately, the presentation didn't matter as much as the eats - it was completely finished and very satisfying. Oh - and "This is for Rosa": it has become my favorite morning cocktail, and on my personal list of "guilty vice pleasures" :-). Thanks again, Urban Solace crew - I will keep coming back! More...

It's been two years since I last went to Urban Solace. While the menu changed to a small plates style, the food was no less inventive and delicious! I had the chimichurri steak, roasted celery root, and a small 3-item charcuterie board (a sausage with two cheeses) and thought they were all very good. I definitely recommend this place to foodies.

Everything seemed AOk, I really like this restaurant. The only complaint I had was... knowing that these were small plates, the order of scallops was the definition of a small plate. Should have been, maybe, 6 scallops or may 3 very large ones. It seemed pricy and ridiculous when it arrived at the table. Everything else was fine. More...

I love the new menu - the mushroom fritters and smoked beets were delightful. And the lemon tart! So. Good. I love that there are so many plant-based options and they're clearly labeled on the menu. Staff was wonderful, and were able to accommodate my request for a quietish spot so my hard of hearing dad and I could chat easily. More...

Urban Solace is one of my husband's and my favorite restaurants. We have been many times and always loved the food and drink menu. We returned for my birthday and to try the new small plate format. Drinks came out immediately, and so did the charcuterie and cheese plate we ordered, which we always enjoy. We ordered about 5 small plates and a second round of drinks next. For some reason, they got behind on tickets and food was slow, we were finishing our drinks and still no food. Without even having to ask, we got a free round of drinks and a free dessert as food was so slow. It felt nice to be so well taken care of; we understand sometimes the kitchen gets behind for various reasons. Running a restaurant is not an easy thing! But when the management can recognize a mishap and make up for it shows true customer service. As for food quality, all was very tasty, save the broccolini which I think they rushed out (it was not charred as advertised). The lamb meatballs and the pork belly pancakes were REALLY good and worth the wait. Overall, this is still one of my very favorite restaurants and I plan to return again soon. Thank you Urban Solace!

This place was so delicious!! The cinnamon bun definitely lived up to the hype I read about before going. The drinks were also delicious. Serve was slightly slow, but we are NYCers so perhaps we are just used to a faster pace then usual. Overall, great place! More...

Love the new dinner menu of small plates! We had a very filling and affordable dinner with six plates. Loved the gnocchi, chaired broccolini, black cod and biscuits especially and wish I’d gotten the mussels, too, because they smelled amazing at the table next door.

There's a reason why Urban Solace has been in North Park so long - they know what they're doing and are very good at it! Came from a small casual group brunch on a Saturday. Moderately filled with people, we were sat down immediately for our reservations. Food was excellent: eggs benedict (Pork Belly Benny), a skillet hash, and comfort food: biscuits and sausage! "This is for Rosa" was a great cold brew/vodka alternative to the mimosa, and the ambience is always pleasant, elegant, quiet - but casual. I'll keep going back! More...

Read about this place on Eater. Had good vegetarian options. Made a reservation (for 1 haha) but wound up sitting at the bar. Nice place, good atmosphere, friendly staff. Only problem was that they brought my main out less than 5 min after I got my app. I had maybe half of a biscuit and then the main arrived. Don't like that - plan better in the kitchen to give diners a chance to enjoy their app, drink, digest a bit and then bring the main. It wasn't packed, nor close to closing, so no reason for the rush. More...

This was just a lunch with two friends who both share their love and mine too for the awesome watermelon salad. It is the best one we have had and maybe the first time years ago when we had it. We keep coming back for it during the summer because it's so refreshing. Of course, I had to get the duckaroni to go, can't pass that up at all. So delicious. One of our friends had a birthday and our sweet server even brought over some ice cream, very nice of her. More...

the food really blew us away! don’t pass on the charcuterie and cheese platter - exceptionally arranged and really special options to choose from. the beef cheeks are not to be missed! so tender and perfectly cooked, every bite was as good as the first. service was a bit awkward - our server dashed off as soon as we finished saying we wanted the charcuterie platter and promptly disappeared, without taking the rest of our meal and drink orders until much later. the pacing of our meal wasn’t great because of this; however, the food more than made up for the small glitch in service. would highly recommend!

Second time we went there, first time in brunch.The menu options are way more limited, but equally as tasty as Lunch/Diner. We picked this place for a get-together with friends we haven't seen in ages because we knew there was a wide variety of menu options and the ambiance is cool and casual.The noise level was a little high, but not excessive .Great experience, overall.

I believe if you serve biscuits that they should be warm, and ours were very cold and we could not eat them. Our food was okay but it seemed to be described very differently than what it tasted like in the end. Overall, I may come back again for drinks as the service was great and so is the ambiance.
