Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a lovely time thanks to a combination of really friendly helpful service , some very nice wines and a couple of sharing platters . I congratulated them on having a decent toilet seat - it’s an Australian oddity, in so many places they...have the cheapest, flimsiest seats I have ever seen anywhere else in the world . It may not be a big think but attention to detail usually results in a great customer experience. I look forward to returning. Thanks guysMore

First visit here and we will definitely be back. Great service and fantastic food, well priced. The entrees were superb, but we all had the market fish, which was kingfish, Cooked to perfection, we could not have asked for it to be any better prepared...and we all enjoyed it. The French touch to all the all dishes, add to the quality of the food. Well worth a visitMore

My girlfriend and I found St Urban by accident. The place looked , great as we passed by and we were taken by the fabulous decor and their appealing menu. Our meal was delicious as we love French style food. We shared the chicken parfait...which just melted in your mouth, then the charcuterie, followed by leek tart, then the prawns along with a lovely salad of pear and blue cheese which was a perfect selection. The wine list is great, a perfect spot if you are around Swan Street, we just loved it!More

My boyfriend and I went for a meal here the other day. When booking the table he let them know we were vegan and they said they could whip something up. We were not disappointed! We had 4 courses plus bread, they are absolutely delicious...and looked like works of art! It really felt like a special meal. The chefs had put so much time and effort into it and one of them also came out with our meals to tell us a bit more about it, which was a really nice touch. The service was also fantastic, very attentive with great recommendations. Would highly recommend!More

Amazing! Perfect little French restaurant that ticked all the boxes. The food was outstanding. The waiters were friendly and cheerful. The wine was fantastic and the espresso martini to finish it all off was the best we’d had. Such a cute little place with an...outside terrace looking over Swan St. Perfect place to spend my birthday. I’d give it 6 stars if I could!More

This is the sister restaurant to Punch Lane in the City and a fine relative she is. Parisian style in a compact setting opposite the Union Hotel on Swan St. Food is mostly Australian Euro style with plenty of fresh seafood and more meaty dishes...for those who prefer. Good wine list and friendly, knowledgeable service make for a great evening out. We visited last week for the third time and found the quality consistently high even though it was a Saturday night.More

This is my favourite restaurant in Melbourne! We are regulars there and the service is spot on. The food is French Italian and perfect for sharing. I love nothing more that sitting on terrace having a wine and some sharing plates. We often just turn...up without a reservation and manage to get a seat - but I think we have just been lucky as its very popular!More

No doubt its a great thing when a restaurant is named after the 4th century French Bishop who was the Patron of Wine ( yes I googled). The place is just like one of those quaint restaurant in a small French country village, you almost...expected to see green hills, a small vineyards outside the window. Our 4 course lunch was designed to share, each dish is perfectly cooked with fantastic fresh produce. Potato gnocchi with Truffled Pecorino, Broad Beans Spring Onion had my vote on the day, normally I am not a big fan of Gnocchi, but this dish is soft, tasty just melted in your mouth, loved it. Now here comes the reason of this restaurant is named after a patron Saint of Wine, their extensive wine list is very impressive, whether its Italian Prossecco, French Chenin Blanc, Rose or Heathcote Shiraz, all their selections are from reputable wine producers, but didn't cost an arm & a leg. The service on the day was top notch, the team was professional, friendly and very efficient, definitely a great addition to its big brother restaurant Punch Lane.More

Saint Urban is just a very cool place to drink, eat and be merry. Allan the host was attentive and delivered on all fronts. We went with the banquet which whilst a little on the light size was flavoursome and fresh. The wine list was...well priced and had a great variety of good options. The décor and seating was fine for our group of eight on the evening - well done Saint Urban crew.More

House speciality, with the hot cheese on top, was very tasty. My partner loved her steak too- cooked perfectly. We used an Entertainment card so was 25% cheaper too. Lovely to sit near kitchen n watch them cook, or out front with street view.

We would need to give Saint Urban another try before forming a long term opinion. The house speciality Raclette was very good (only tasted someone else’s dish) but the gnocchi I had for a main was salty. The table service was excellent and the gentleman...serving us (I believe the owner) made some superb wine suggestions. Unfortunately, the place is very small and this is reflected in the table sizes and ability for patrons and staff to move around. Recommend for special occasions but for smaller groups only.More

Great atmosphere, tasty food, knowledgeable staff - all in an intimate setting. Only gripe is the lack of generosity in the servings. And wine list is expensive.
