Impressive Brunch!One of... if not THE best brunch... I've eaten in downtown Portland. Amazing selection for both kids and adults. Very impressive! However, I wasn't a fan of the mixed drink I ordered. The waiter brought me a glass of Prosecco... which was outstanding. Will go again for brunch!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for a special occasionI have been here a few times for special occasions. The food and service are truly exceptional, even to a foodie such as myself. The wait staff will go above and beyond to ensure a pleasureable dining experience, which included having a chef come out with my steak to carve it tableside.
My only complaint about this restauraunt is the fact that although the ceiling goes up cathedral style several stories, there still are no windows to the outside and it feels like you're in the middle of a hotel. (which you are) It can get a little loud and you lose out on a more intimate feeling. However, the overall experience is well worth the money and lack of more ambiance.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food but very slow serviceWaited an hour for our food. The server was apologetic but this really cut in to our plans for the rst of the day. Food was fresh and inventive and very tasty- I just wish I weren't left starving for an hour!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGrand First VisitThis was my first experience and Urban Farmer, but I doubt it will be my last. The food was of superior quality, and the service was very good overall. My only slight negative pertaining to service was that it took a bit long for our server to bring the check, but I suppose he was trying to give us ample time to talk.
I ordered the halibut which was cooked to perfection, and the twice-baked fingerling potato tart is NOT to be missed! I was too full for dessert this time around, but I will certainly be sure to save room on my next visit. Also, the decor and atmosphere contribute to a lovely dining experience suitable for any special occasion. I definitely enjoyed Urban Farmer, and recommend it.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent eggs benedict.Avocado is my fave. Delicious chicken cherry sausage. Fun space. Excellent staff.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingThis was our fourth or fifth visit to Urban Farmer. We were there to celebrate our anniversary. The menu changes seasonally, and this time I tried the onion soup and the scallops. They were both wonderful. The scallops were served with poached quail eggs and morel mushrooms. Hands down, one of the best dinners I have ever had. My husband enjoyed a perfectly cooked steak and the twice baked fingerling potatoes. The waiter was friendly and helpful. He helped us choose a wine and it turned out to be a new favorite. We finished with the butterscotch brownie.....bam! So good! Urban Farmer will continue to be one of our favorites for a special night out.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service, Great FoodSome friends from New York and I went to Urban Farmer for dinner. We received terrific, friendly, knowledgeable service from both our server and the cheese expert, who came by our table to describe all of the restaurant's cheese offerings and their various flavors. Although the service was professional, it was also warm and fun. We had a great time laughing and chatting with the servers. With regards to the food, it was all delicious. I had the salmon, which was cooked perfectly. We ordered several side dishes to share. I highly recommend the creamed spinach, the macaroni and cheese, and the grits, which were the creamiest, most flavorful grits I've tasted since I lived in Virginia. Looking forward to going back.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the dungeness crab omelet,I had the dungeness crab omelet, it was quite good.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the cheese service!We had a wonderful meal. Attentive service, great recommendations and the cheese service was incredible. All of us raved about the steaks- I put mine in top 5 list of best steak ever. Birthday treat for my husband was a nice finishing touch4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic environment andFantastic environment and even better food. The steaks are delicious. I would recommend this place and definitely go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper breakfast!I been here a few times for breakfast. It never fails to impress me. I love the Bloody Mary Bar! The homemade English muffins are incredible and especially great in the Eggs Benedict. My favorite breakfast place in Portland!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood excellent as always .Food excellent as always . Service too slow and pretentious .4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat location, nice flavors.My girlfriend and I attended this restaurant for special occasion. I specifically requested a seat away from most diners so that we can have a quiet opportunity to connect. They put us in the fabulous spot in the restaurant. Customer service was truly outstanding. The star of the menu are the meat selections. So if you are vegan or vegetarian, this is probably not the best place for you to go. The meat selections are fantastic, expensive, but worth the price. The only thing I could critique the restaurant about is its ice cream. The ice cream there is overly sweet. My girlfriend and I both did not enjoy the taste of the ice cream. otherwise, we truly enjoyed our experience here. And would recommend it.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWhile the cost may seem highWhile the cost may seem high at first, everything is large enough to share so diners really only need to order 1 meal. A coworker and I went for dinner while at a conference and shared a salad, steak, cauliflower, and the potato tart. We even had enough to feed 1 more person in leftovers.
The service was excellent. Definately some of the best service I've had in a very long time at a restraunt. The food was also delicious and perfectly cooked.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMdeviled eggs and the shrimpdeviled eggs and the shrimp salad are awesome. Presentations are very creative and Steak options are impressive.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had a really good experienceI had a really good experience at urban farmer. The duck was delicious! The server was very knowledgable and friendly, he recommended a very good wine. We were seated in a cozy nook and the only thing I wish was different was to have gotten a bigger table. It felt a little crowded. Other than that it was great! I will definitely refer my friends!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always the food and diningAs always the food and dining experience at Urban farmer was superb!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the EasterWe really enjoyed the Easter Brunch. We chose Urban Farmer because they offered a Buffet Brunch and we have enjoyed dining there on a number of occasions . The food has never been dissappointing. The service is always attentive and the setting is comfortable. I especially enjoy the semi private dining areas. You are not secluded, but conversation between two people or more can be held without the worry of disturbing other diners. Sunday's brunch was especially satisfying. The omelettes were fresh and made to order. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and the chicken sausage pattie with cranberries was a table favorite. The one slight dissapointment was the absence of a seafood bar. Maybe next year?3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMUrban Farmer provided a perfectUrban Farmer provided a perfect spot to celebrate a special event. The food was fantastic and the staff was thoroughly knowledgable and friendly. I would recommend this spot for anyone looking for any reason to visit a nice and relaxing restaurant, as well as someone looking for an intimate date spot.
Thank you for making birthday celebration special and treating us like we were the only people in the restaurant.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a special occasionIt was a special occasion with an old friend...

The food is always so fresh and beautifully prepared. The service is always professional and friendly and low key. Everytime we come to Portland,we have to ensure that we eat here. We love it..Be prepared though the portions can be quite large. You might want to consider sharing the eggs benedict.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our second time atThis was our second time at Urban Farmer's. We brought an out-of-town visitor there for a special brunch experience. We had reservations and were seated in a more private part of the restaurant, which was really wonderful. We came back for the service, which is outstanding--friendly, not pretentious, and highly professional, and the food. We were disappointed the heirloom tomato salad was not on the menu (I understand it is a seasonal item). The vegetarian eggs benedict were delicious, but had a bit too much lime and the avocado was sour. And the French Toast was okay--I liked the rhubarb sauce but the French Toast itself was pretty routine.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYum!Great service and delicious food! I like that they use local farms for some of their products. The steak was amazing and sides were of good portion. I also recommend the butterscotch sundae. Definitely has a more modern vibe compared to a "traditional" steakhouse.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went here for brunch onWe went here for brunch on Sunday. The service was excellent. The food was amazing. We were a pretty large group so I tasted several different items and all were fantastic. The english muffins are even homemade! I had the avacado eggs benedict and a potato cake. Really yummy and plenty of perfect avacado! The atmosphere for brunch is bright and energetic. Loved it. I'll have to come back for dinner.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMEric Freeman, Freeman Motor CompanyI have been to Urban Farmer twice now. Wow, is all that comes mind. This place always over delivers! If you are looking for and experience, this is it!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial occasions would beSpecial occasions would be well served to try this spot. The staff is exceptionally well equipped to make your visit most memorable. We had appetizers and dinner and there was nothing that was not exceptionally prepared and served. For our occasion our waiter took the liberty to provide a very special treat at the end of our meal. I would have ordered something but he did that for us and really took our visit "over the top". My hat's off to you at the Urban Farmer!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat atmosphere and staffgreat atmosphere and staff but my fish was a little less than fabulous. However the tuna tar tar and veggies were amazing3/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
