Steakhouse
Urban Farmer Denver’s seasonally-driven menu highlights nose-to-tail cuts of naturally raised meat, carefully curated by Executive Chef Chris Starkus, who was previously the Chef de Cuisine of Urban Farmer Portland. The restaurant focuses on in-house whole animal butchering and ways to use the entire animal throughout the menu. A communal charcuterie station offers guests an interactive and engaging space in which to ‘meet their meat.’

The steakhouse is not entirely focused on meats alone, and also offers soul nurturing sides, soups, and salads inspired by each season’s abundance. Post-supper sweets will be made in-house and include a variety of baked goods and selection of rotating ice creams and sorbets.

This was our second time to Urban Farmer, and quite frankly, probably our last. While our waiter was a nice guy, the service was extremely slow. It took 20 minutes to get our first drinks at the table. The food took well over 40 minutes from the time we ordered. At one point, our waiter came out and said the steaks were “resting” after being cooked, and then it was another 20 minutes. The food was lukewarm, and my $60 bison rib eye was a bit dry and over cooked. At that point, we had been at the restaurant for 2 hours, and I didn’t want to send the meal back. The waiter mentioned there were a lot of orders at once and the kitchen was overwhelmed. For $350 for 4 of us, it was not worth the money or time.

Probably our favorite place for a special occasion in Denver. Hands down the best martini in Denver. We split the Caesar salad, steak flight, and lobster tail. Steak was cooked perfectly and so tender. Great place for a date, business dinner, or special occasion.

I would argue best steaks in Denver, especially the ribeye or tomahawk.

Highly recommend!

Background: To place this review in context I have been to about 15 "upscale" steak houses in the Denver metro area. My favorites are Guard and Grace, Capital Grill, and Shanahans.

Staff: Fairly inattentive and disorganized. We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and were seated in a front area. A waitress walked up and asked if we wanted any drinks, got distracted by another employee whispering to her, and walked away. She didn't excuse herself nor come back. We requested a booth for three people and were declined because we did not have enough people in our party. The restaurant was only about half occupied at 5:15 pm. Our waiter did not review the menu with us. We had never been here and most "upscale" steak places take pride in reviewing their menu with guests. A carrot soup was ordered and a cup was brought out and my friend began to eat it. Another waiter came out and stated that he meant to give her a bowl and placed another larger bowl of soup in front of her. When our food came out a gentleman rolled a cart to prepare mushrooms table side for us. I mentioned that we had not ordered the mushrooms. He was confused and didn't know what to do because he already started to saute onions. I said that we would accept them instead of the fingerling potatoes. Our waiter never apologized or acknowledged this. The waiter never asked if our steak was cooked to the correct temperature. They were not.

Food: Average tasting and over priced. 6 ounce filet mignons were small and over done. I have gone to The Edge and Ruth's Chris in the past few months with both of the 6 ounce fillets appearing larger than the Urban Farmer's. The fillets were slightly larger than a fifty cent piece, maybe the diameter of a clementine and priced at $45. They were ordered to be medium and one came out as medium well and the other as well done. Two appetizers, three steaks, three sides, and six cocktails came out to $345.

Hostess was rude. We called her, hung up on us. When we got there she said that because we made our open table 15 minutes ago we had to wait. The restaurant had many tables empty. Had to wait another 15 minutes past reservation. Our waitress though was awesome and so was the food!!! Rabbit hash a must try!!

Always enjoy Urban Farmer. I had a salad followed by a grass fed NY Strip and a fingerling potato tart. Everything was delicious! Unfortunately the restaurant was extremely busy and the service suffered accordingly. Not my best dinner there. But still, I’m looking forward to my next visit!

Tried to have business lunch with three 80 yr olds. Loud music made it quite difficult. Needs of two large parties resulted in a 45 min wait for our food. Staff was apologetic and very professional, it was not their fault. Price reduction helped soften the mood. Why do restaurants feel the need to drown out conversation?

This was a fabulous place that will be making a frequent occurrence on steak nights. The cocktails were well executed classics (I had a Manhattan and a mai tai) as well as their own offerings. We had a nice charcuterie board and a pastrami board as appetizers and both were picked clean. We ordered the waygu hanger, the steak tasting "flight," and an 8 oz filet. All plates were expertly prepared, perfectly seasoned and at the requested temperature and was some of the best beef I've had in Denver. The only (very small) issue we had was with the sides. While the creamed corn side was incredible, the chili mac and cheese had too much breadcrumbs and too little pasta, and the twice baked potato tart was difficult to split and serve with the crust. Minor issues as they both tasted great.

We can't wait to get back for the next guy's night!

My wife and I went here for an anniversary brunch. The restaurant came highly recommended as one of the best dining experiences in Denver. Unfortunately, our dining experience was less than pleasant. The staff were extremely rude to us. We did have a difficult time finding parking, so we were about 15 minutes late, and the hostess made us feel as if we were horrible people for being a few minutes late. Next, our waitress was less than pleasant with us, and only checked up with us once during the whole meal.

On a positive note the food was outstanding! I had the breakfast sandwich and my wife had the waffle. Both were delightful. Thankfully the food was able to salvage the terrible, condescending service that we received

Urban farmer is an attractive restaurant where the overall experience did not justify the high prices. The service had a few odd glitches- for example, one member of our party received his cocktail several minutes before the rest of us, creating an awkward interlude. The second round of that cocktail was about 75% the size of the first. Al of us had steaks and we found them perfectly good but unexciting. There was no sizzle and Several of us added salt. I like a good seared crust on my medium rare steak and I was disappointed. The six of us ordered cocktails, 4 steaks to share among the six of us, a few apps and no dessert and we spent 500 bucks before the tip. The service, and especially the food, did not justify that expense.

The food was good however it took 30 minutes to receive drinks (beer) and 1.5 hours to get our steaks. There weren’t any apologies for the slow service and we missed our evening plans due to the slow dinner.

Likely the best Filet Mignon I've ever had! It was cooked to perfection, spices were amazing! The garlic/white wine veggies were awesome and to finish it off, the best Butter Pecan Old Fashioned! Every bite was savored and if I ever get back to Denver, I'm heading straight to Urban Farmer for dinner!

Lovely restaurant and bar. Wonderful food and service from all the staff over the 5 days we stayed. Breakfast , lunch and dinner - experienced all 3 meals here and they were each amazing. The sweet blonde bartender knew her staff as did the lady sommelier.
Our dinner waiter was amazing and those steaks and mushrooms! They were exceptional!!
Will definitely return to the Oxford and Urban Farm!

We've dined here twice and the food and service is always stellar. Great portions, delicious, and quickly served. The charcuterie and sides are worth sharing, the cocktails carefully made, and the free corn bread is dangerously good.

If you are looking for a fresh change up to your standard steak house, Urban Farmer is the place to go. All of the food was incredibly fresh and prepared exactly as requested. If you are getting sides, the mushrooms are a must.

I've been to restaurants serving wine flights, and whiskey flights, but i have never been to a restaurant serving STEAK FLIGHTS. It wasn't cheap, but it was worth every penny. Being able to quantify the taste and texture of the four steaks was very interesting.

I would put a trip back to Urban Farmer very high on my list.

We stayed at the Oxford Hotel and had planned to go off property for dinner. After having an amazing breakfast sitting by an open air window, we decided to have dinner there as well. Best steak we’ve had in a long while. Sides were amazing, too. Great staff. Highly recommend.

Really unusual and tasty dishes; innovative cocktails particularly the Farmer #4 which was the perfect summer drink. The wait staff was attentive and friendly and I'd recommend to anyone I know heading for Denver.
