    The menu at Urban Tavern has alot of fresh california cuisine choices and a hip urban comfy interior...surprising for a hotel restaurant. The Estates Group loves to lunch here when downtown SF.

    The meatloaf sliders are DELICIOUS! Make sure you try them! Free corkage on Monday nights as of October '10. Major bonus points for the interior's clean minimalist presentation with great accents.

    They REALLY do not like accommodating separate checks here... If you are in a group, just sit at the long table and pretend like you don't know each other! ;)

    The tender pork with vegetables and red wine sauce was great ($25) but the lamb chomps were just average ($29). *The coffee was good ($5).

    Pretty cool atmosphere. Owned by the Hilton next door so the food is a little pricey. Worth checking out for a beer or two.

    Urban Tavern is running a promotion where if you check-in on Foursquare, you buy 1 drink and you get the second for free. But lookout for "light" pours on the second drink.
