Review of Urban Plates

5111 Martinelli Way, Dublin, CA 94568

Overall Rating


There’s a fair share of gluten free food. You can’t just say “no bread” to have it gluten free. Practically every time I have said “no bread” they have placed bread on top of my food. You must say “GLUTEN ALLERGY” for them to take you seriously. They have gluten free bread, but it’s meh to be honest. If you are celiac I would stick to plates, salads, and bowls. The kitchen is way to complacent to ensure no cross contamination when making gluten free sandwiches. Even if you request gluten free bread, they often grill it - probably on the same grill with “gluten bread”. I doubt it’s a separate dedicated area.

Service is 2.5/5. It’s a hit or miss. The cashiers can be blunt and rude with their lack of grace. If the manager takes your order, it’s fine.

The food is also a hit or miss. Sometimes it’s amazing and dialed-in, other times it’s a let down, especially for the price.

Try to go near opening times/before rush hour. Often times when the kitchen is rushing, they will gloss over specific requests.

If you eat here, be prepared to speak up with the possibility of having to send the food back to the kitchen to have it re-made because of bread placed on your food. Don’t be afraid to speak to the manger if you have to, he seems nice and wants things to be right. Overall do your due diligence, understand the menu and you should be ok.

Unless you have eaten here a few times, I would not order online for delivery/pick-up. The risk is too high. It’s not worth getting sick over. I would eat here at least two times to get a feel and understand of how things are to best avoid getting sick.
