Be prepared to wait at least an hour to be seated, even if you have a reservation. We have been here 3 times and the service has consistantly been horrible. This restaurant is not worth the trouble.

Chaos. This is the one word to describe Two. First, the hostess station is placed by the entrance to the kitchen which is also placed next to the myriad of restrooms which all seemed to be out of order. Women were lined 15 deep to use a single restroom. The waitstaff tripped over people who were waiting the 2 hours to get a table. My reservation was set for 9:30. Was seated sometime after 10:15. Drink order went in around 10:30, entrees ordered at 10:50 and the bread finally arrived after the appetizers hit the table. Entrees (some prepared incorrectly, some lost on the way to the table) arrived around 11:15. Hmm, a 9:30 seating with a 11:15 eat time. Sure the place looks swanky, but this place is too hip to last. You can't enjoy any of the interior features because the palce is too crowded and too noisy.

Pros: none

Cons: noise, crowded, bad service

SUch a fun restaurant. The jazz is great and the environment is fantastic. Our oysters and rocket salad were phenomenal. However, our entrees were not. The pork shoulder was too salty and the macoroni and cheese was basically "easy mac." The tuna came out cold with frozen tomatoes and in a terribly shaped dish. OUr waiter was fabulous, but the food runners were messing things up all night. Would recommend for a fun night out, but only if you have plenty of time, patience, and an unpicky palate. I'll return.

I tried to eat here. I took a friend on a Wednesday night for an 8:00 reservation booked two weeks ahead. We waited until past 9 to be seated in a very crowded bar full of other unfortunate and hungry diners. Nobody ever acknowledged our problem or offered any attempt to sooth the situation. When we left, the host thanked us and told us to enjoy the rest of our evening. I just laughed and shook my head.

My boyfriend and I went last Thursday night around 10pm. Even though it was packed, they were able to seat us immediately. The service was very friendly, and the restaurant scene looked like a place the women from Sex and the City would want to be seen. It was fantastic. For an appetizer, we had a delicious fresh combination of salmon and tuna with chips in addition to bread filled with melted butter that was to die for. I had the roasted duck for my meal and my boyfriend had the prime rib. They were both scrumptious. The prices are a little steep but it is definitely a fun place to eat.

Pros: appearance, food, valet

Cons: , kinda loud

My experience at Two last night was pretty unsatisfactory, about 35% successful. That included food problems and MANY service problems (we had to find our own napkins, asked for bread 7 times) I'm now hearing this is in line with their reputation. When we expressed that things had "missed the mark" we were reprimanded by the manager, that essentially our bad experience was our fault for not speaking up. Too many things had gone wrong at that point. It's a shame. You can't survive on looks alone, food and service is what makes a restaurant.

Pros: GREAT VALET

Cons: , TERRIBLE MANAGER

The food was great and the atmosphere was wonderful. Unfortunately the rude and unaccommodating hosting staff (1 hour wait w/ res!) combined with a truly absurd valet parking system, made our experience at 2 Urban, one lick away from painful. While the tapas selection was adequate and the drink menu unique, the music was plainly "too-urban loud."

Overall, and in light of the great decor and delectable food, the HORRIBLE service and valet paint 2 Urban Licks as a 1 trick pony.

This is a great spot to have a fun and exciting dinner that stimulates all your senses. The food is fantastic - especially the appetizers, pork shoulder, scallops and duck. We thought the wine was pretty good. Make reservations! If you don't like live music while you eat, ask to sit away from it, though we didn't find it too loud. The interior is spectacular - extremely well done - and the view of the city is stunning. We found our service top notch. Pre-made specialty drinks were tasty but a little weak. Place is working out the kinks and is pretty much there. Highly recommend for those looking for a fun & different evening. If you're looking for a quiet, romantic dinner it probably isn't the place.

First, be realistic! This restaurant has jsut opened and is very "hot" so don't even think about going without a reservation, at least for the next couple months. Second, as a result it will be packed and therefore, loud. But the ambiance is cool, the 360 degree kitchen is cool, the rotisserrie is cool and the food is GREAT! Some dishes could be more substantial but I was very impressed with overall taste and quality. They even squeezed us in without a reservation on Sautrday when we came right before the dinner rush!

Pros: Food, Ambiance, Decor

Two is one of the most stunning places I have ever seen. The uinterioir goes far beyond "dramatic." The food is southern-inspired, certainly, but it is wide-ranging and well-prepared. I wouldn't consider it to be a bar-b-que place at all. Sophisticated entrees, artfully presented in a stunning interior. Highly recommended. Service could be better, but for a new place, not bad.

These restaurants are just too loud. At least at two the food is much better than one. It's just so miserably loud. You would never want to go here on a date. It's a good restaurant for big groups though. And they still have that big smoking bird thing that makes you stink. The wine isn't very good. I don't buy that barrel business and I realize that serving white wine at room temperature is european but you just can't do that in the states, our wine isn't that good. I doubt that I would ever go back but the food was worth the experience.

This was overall a good experience for my group with a few exceptions. If you are at a table for more than 4, make sure to get as far away from the band as possible. Otherwise, you will not be able to hear each other at all. Best to go early (6:30-7) because the service suffers as they get busier. The scallops are great, but there is a flavor in them that isn't mentioned on the menu. It's similiar to dillweed. The carrot cake has a licorice flavor in it, that is also not mentioned. The cupcake trio is really six cupcakes, not three. If you are seated near the rotating roaster, you will be very warm. When trying to find the restaurant, you need to go down the hill towards the post office, not up the private drive to the left. It is difficult to tell the right direction.
