We had a really fabulous time here between the gin garden & the orchard. Food was delicious & the service was top notch.

To start I I had to wait half an hour for my table which was booked for 16:15, whilst waiting not once were we even offered any drinks/glasses of water. The customer service was appalling, every member of staff seemed as though they didn’t have a clue what they were doing. Once I eventually got my seat it was a further 20 mins before anyone came to take my order. I sent a drink back because it was absolutely not what I ordered and bar staff refused to change it and their attitude was horrible. Had one drink and left because the atmosphere was terrible.

When we arrived we were sat in an area that was not fully covered but told we would be moved if a table became available. We were happy to sit there as long as the rain stayed off and we never got offered another one anyway. We waited a very long time for drinks orders and there seemed to be no system in place as to which server was responsible for which tables. We had a nice time but wouldn't rush back to the outdoor area.

Beautifully decorated interior. Staff are so friendly and very hardworking. Food was lovely but a little on the small side portion wise.

I know the place had been open for a week but the service was really bad. Took a while for our drink order and we waited over an hour for our food to arrive, and my friend was diabetic. The area we were seated in was extremely drafty from the door. However when the food arrived it was delicious thankfully. I really hope these points improve as I would like to see the Urbanist thrive.

Really enjoy the venue and cocktail choices. As it’s new, can tell there is teething problems but it will all come together

Lovely beer garden, lovely staff, great time had by myself and friends. BBQ food and drinks were fab too. Was very busy and staff were kept on their toes. Great job. Only down side was there was a bunch of young lads probs just turned 18 being loud and rude, also rude to a staff member. Would maybe think about a bouncer to be on duty during day time aswell.

Bad night from start to finish, over an hour wait for food when the inside of the restaurant wasn’t busy, food orders forgotten, drinks left empty without service asking if we’d like anymore. When food finally came it wasn’t up to much of a standard you’d expect with the long waiting time. When moved outside for alcohol it took a visit to the bar from myself to prompt anyone to come and take a drinks order from the table of 6. After 2nd drink and around 1.5 hours we left. Very disappointed and would like this place to last as it’s a good location within walking distance from my house. A lot of work is needed to make this even remotely worthwhile.

Nice setting, service could be a bit speedier. We were told that before going though so ordered two drinks at a time. Staff were lovely. Bbq food was lovely. Nice night, only thing missing was some heaters.

We went on a Thursday evening for my wife’s birthday, along with our adult children. We had heard good reports on the food, but that the service wasn’t as good. Our experience was that both were excellent (we had four different starters and four different mains, some vegetarian and some non- vegetarian) and hopefully an issues have been remedied.

Great day in the beers garden, the best in Kilmarnock, well laid out in modern. Was there for drinks only but will return to try the food which looks amazing, only thing is it's quite expensive if it's trying to be a local hang out bar

The Urbanist has lovely decor. The staff are all lovely and very helpful. Unfortunately we felt we waited a long time for our drinks. We arrived at 7pm and despite it not being busy we waited 20mins for a drink. It was 8pm before we were able to order another drink. Other guest sitting in the gin garden actually went inside to ask for service. Maybe the shift was understaffed hence the waiting time. I would return again to give it another try. This was a Wednesday evening though. I wouldn't have expected the waiting times to be so long.

The only thing is you didn't have the cheeseboard I'd wanted to order but it's no biggy. Plus we were offered some free prosecco to make up for it which really made our evening - thank you so much! The girls there were really lovely too and so accommodating ❤️

We were disappointed that we needed to wait so long for our meals we had a starter and main and had our main 90 mins after our arrival. The place looks lovely but we felt it was style over substance. The food was average and not worth the wait. The staff were pleasant but we couldn't understand how the food could take so long to be prepared.
