4.3/5  rDev -4%

It is what the name says it is. Good food, good beer, a solid establishment.

Napa valley nouveau: stone, concrete floors, high ceilings. Like many things in Rancho Bernardo, Urge is located in an upscale strip mall. Not the easiest place to find once you get to the address (approximately) but worth the trouble. The food is upper end pub food, well prepared, tasty, and possibly a bit on the pricey side. The local seafood appetizer in beer was excellent. The shellfish were fresh and the broth was very good. Unfortunately, no bread was provided to soak up the left over liquor (I'm sure if I had only asked, I would have had some). The rabbit burger was excellent. A nice balance between the rich and savory rabbit, smoked gouda, and slightly sweet bun. If you get it, make sure to ask to have it done no more than medium. Any longer cooking might render it dry and less appealing. Service was excellent, although a better understanding of the beers would have made for a nicer experience. The beer selection, while not the biggest or best, was very passable. Plenty to choose from around the SD area and a few CA and other standards. The biggest problem Urge has is that it's located in a part of San Diego County that is out of the way. Far enough from greater SD to make it a bit of a haul, and just south of Escondido and San Marcos. Regardless, if you're close by, it is worth a trip.

Its cool to see a place with such a diverse tap list, and by that I mean breweries outside sd like Nobel, Bells, and Ritual. Had a couple beers and tasters. great selection.

Food was very good. muscles served with french fries and Dakota Chislic. Cant wait to go back and try more of there food.

Overall great impression.

S - Very good selection of beer.
F - Good food.
Value - Beers are too expensive.

I always have a dilemma whether or not I should come here. The beers are expensive, yet they sometimes have some hard to find beers on tap...
