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.

Really great service. The food took a long time (the kitchen must have been backed up,) but they comped a huge portion of our ticket. The lion’s mane mushroom dish was so good!

I have received the worst service of anywhere in Denver at Urban Farmer. The first time it happened I thought it may be a fluke so I gave it another try and again received terrible service. Needless to say I will not be returning and I do not recommend Urban Farmer to anyone that values decent service.

The food was salty and took quite a long time to get out. The pricing was a bit high we felt for the food ($14 for a side - small cast iron pan of twice baked potatoes...). But I guess that’s typical for a steakhouse attached to a hotel. I think it would be better just for drinks.

Horrible food and service to match! Would not go back. Steak was like eating a cut from a 10 year old cow.

The biscuit and gravy was good. So was the shaved ham Benedict. The avocado Benedict was a disappointment. Service and atmosphere were excellent.

Food was amazing. Creative combinations and delicious. Service was a bit slow, but very friendly and helpful. Restaurant was loud, and our two person table was super close to the next one over, we were able to hear everything the other party was saying and they could hear ours. A minor annoyance. We will be back.

We brought some (4) of our kids with us to enjoy a good meal with a great menu. We all enjoyed everything from the duck, steak, veggies and even the cocktails and desserts. It was a bit pricey by the end, but it was worth it. We would def. go again, maybe just a date night next time.

Lovely decor. The Bowie quote in neon is a great reminder to get out and do! Staff were all helpful and attentive. Our table had eggs from poached to hard scrambled and the kitchen got it just right! We will definitely go back.

Sunday brunch for five, best item was the Dick confit hash. Self serve Bloody Mary was less than desired, condiments were excellent but glass did not arrive rimmed and that detracted from the desired experience with it. Ambiance very nice.

What a disappointment! We were celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary, and this experience provided a meal not to forget in all the negative ways. If it hadn't been for the manager paying our bill, this would have been a one star or less rating (if that was possible.) This place suffers from inattentive staff, uneven service, and, VERY SADLY yet IMPORTANTLY, poorly prepared, tasteless food. Our first hint of problem came when everything ground to a halt after salad. We sat there for over 20 minutes, wine warmed up to room temperature, and when asked, the waiter said "oh, that's the way it is for locally sourced food." As if the source of the food had anything at all to do with their slow, inept preparation and service. Now, specifics: my wife had the chicken dish which was dry and unappetizing - think inedible. I had the lamb which, while looking nice, amazingly had absolutely no taste whatsoever. The crowning (if you will) touch was the fingerling mashed potato tart. I'm guessing this mess was prepared days ago and nuked multiple times before finally finding someone to order it. Toughest thing I've ever tried to put a fork or knife into. Upon my second attempt, the whole thing came out of its dish and hung on my fork - indestructible and inedible. This place must be trading on its "locally sourced" theme and certainly not on service or quality of food. Fortunately, Denver has many great restaurants so this bunch won't be missed. My only kudo is to the manager for stepping in and trying to repair the damage; however, he couldn't give us back our time on our special day. Incidentally, I had breakfast there two days later. Wonder why the staff all walk around with frowns on their faces? Breakfast was OK, service and staff very sterile.

Unfortunately we had an awful experience at Urban Farmer. The service was horrible. It took 30 mins to get our drinks and an hour to get our food. Our waitress was practically in tears because we were frustrated and she didn’t know how to handle it. At no point did a manger come over to offer explanation or new drinks, or anything to help supplement how terrible the experience. They did take off some items from our bill at the end but unfortunate the experience was so awful that we will not be going back.

Another awesome night!!! We got to Urban Farmer at 7:30 for an 8:00 reservation. We expected to wait, but were surprised when it was 8:20 and we still hadn’t been seated, yet everyone else who came in we’ll after us had been taken to their table. Once we got to our table, our server was lovely, the noise level was moderate, and our food was excellent with the exception of the Brussels Sprouts. Our server told us we were te third table that night that didn’t love them so perhaps it was a chef error so somewhere. We had the potato tart which she described as divine, and I couldn’t think of a better word to describe them!!! The Mac and cheese was a bit unflavorful but my husband liked them. We also ordered the beet salad which they split for us and it was wonderful!! The dressing and pumpkin seeds on top were perfect.
All in all, our food was good, the ambience is fun, and the server was excellent! We will be back!

We’re unfortunately quite underwhelmed- cocktails and wine selection were very good. The cornbread was good. The tableside prepared steak tartare was quite good.
The steak we questioned if it was Waygu- the texture was quite toothsome. The tableside mushrooms were missing 2 of the 3 promised varieties and the ones that were served were already partially cooked and then just finished off tableside. The fingerling potato tart tasted burnt- the phyllo crust was visibly overdone- almost even tasted like it was in an oven where something had been burning. And the butterscotch sundae was absent of butterscotch flavor causing us to inquire if we received the wrong dessert- we were assured it was correct- it was mostly crumble/oatmeal. We packed up leftovers to go home and ultimately decided there wasn’t anything worth revisiting at home. So as we picked as a treat for a birthday dinner- were quite disappointed.

May not being fair to critique this restaurant as we were there on a pre-fixe menu on Thanksgiving. Service was not personable, slow (especially for the amount of people there). Food warmed over and not tasty.

This is one of my favorite places to eat but our Thanksgiving meal was a real low water mark. I eat at Urban Farmer at least a few times a month and it seems that when heavily crowded or at a corporate function we had last year that strains the kitchen the quality really suffers. Just to be clear....I have rated it 5 stars each time I previously have been surveyed but just can’t this time and would not have at our corporate function last year if a survey was sent.

It was unremarkable. We went for Thanksgiving dinner and the menu was set, which is fine. However, I would expect that to help make the service better and the food arrive faster. Everything was slow. It took over 2 hours for dinner which would be fine if the wait staff was serving drinks and removing dishes. It was just slow. And honestly for the price it wasn't on par with what we experienced. When you spend $75 a person before drinks it should be a much more cohesive and enjoyable experience. I won't be back. Denver has great places to eat and there is no reason to spend money here

I have heard a lot about Urban Farmer, and being a resident of Colorado for the past 27 years, I was happy to find a healthy "farm to table" dining option. For Thanksgiving, it was a special menu, $75/person. Not opposed to paying a high price for awesome food. However: The charcuterie board was nice, Appetizers we had were the jumbo shrimp and green salad: both were good. I liked the green salad with crispy quinoa. Main dish: We both had the Prime Rib. Mine was undercooked. More rare than medium rare, and when I said something to the server, nothing was done about it. Not even an offer to cook a bit longer. The 5 side dishes were basic: cranberry sauce, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, and yams. Then deserts: 3 options: s'more cheese cake, pumpkin creme brulle, or apple crustada. Nothing fancy, nothing difficult to prepare or exceptional on the menu. I could have cooked all myself, with the exception of the charcuterie board.
In addition, we ordered wine from the special holiday wine list. We were mischarged over $16 for the bottle. "A typo that wasn't either corrected on menu or on computer", but if we were not paying attention, another $16 that would have been charged on a $70 Pinot Noir from Oregon. Customer service was okay. Atmosphere was okay. Nothing special.

This was our second trip to Urban Farmer, but our first visit for Thanksgiving. The last trip was on Christmas Eve. We had an awesome experience on Christmas Eve so we were hoping Thanksgiving would be the same. We were wrong. I think the major difference between the two is that on Christmas Eve they served their regular menu and offered some specials where as on Thanksgiving they served a limited menu. The team at the restaurant was better prepared to serve the regular menu with specials(Christmas Eve) rather than a limited menu(Thanksgiving). I would recommend Urban Farmer when they are serving their regular menu.
