Steakhouse
Urban Farmer Denver’s seasonally driven menu will highlight 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, and Culinary Director of the Urban Farmer brand, Matt Christianson. 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 will also offer soul nurturing sides, soups, and salads inspired by each season’s abundance. Additionally, diners will find a roaming cheese cart displaying a variety of high pedigree local cheeses. Post supper sweets will be made in-­house and include a variety of baked goods and selection of rotating ice creams and sorbets.

Wait was minimal, food was superb, and waitstaff was attentive as always. Noise level is always a little higher than I'd like when we are seated in the bar section, I'd recommend requesting a table in the dining room during busy times if you are sensitive to this.

Urban Farmer has a great breakfast--and in Lodo, this is hard to find without a 2 hour wait. especially notable are their fennel sausage and home made bread/toast.

Disappointing . We were excited to have Thanksgiving dinner after an amazing experience a few months ago . We should have stayed home . Not sure where to start . There are little subtleties that put a restaurant over the top . These were definitely missing . The lighting was as if we were in a police interrogation room - bright enough to blind you. No ambiance created. The first charcuterie was brought to us . 4 little pieces of bread . We didn’t even get a chance to enjoy the first course when less than 5 minutes later the second course was brought out . It was as if we were being rushed out the door . We ordered the prime rib and were disappointed that horseradish was not provided . We were told they ran out. Amazing . They brought out something that resembled “horseradish” but it was 99 percent sour cream. A simple request was not met . The wine was good at least. We received our main course without any condiments and had to request it . Shouldn’t the condiments come out at the same time as the main course. We saw that happen for another table. When we got our deserts , less than 5 minutes later , we were asked by a female waitress if she could clear our plates despite it being apparent that we just started eating our desert. Poor training of wait staff. What we should have done was leave immediately when it was apparent the service was subpar. We were hopeful but extremely disappointed . The experience was so disappointing that we should have just stayed home. Great restaurants don’t disappoint .

Hoping for a great thanksgiving dinner with my wife and my 88 year old mother. Fixed menu. Shrimp came out soggy and weird. We sent them back and got soup. Turkey dinner came out cold. Sent back and waited for warm food. Terrible experience. At $75 per person I expected way better. We will never go back or recommend this place. Very over priced for quality of food and service.

While the food was outstanding, the value for Thanksgiving dinner was not. I was surprised that for $75 /person that we only received a single charchuterie board appetizer and single small portion bowls of a variety of side dishes for a table of six including 4 adult males. The total cost of the meal including wine was $1000. Despite enjoying the food, the ambiance, and our experience, I think were all still a little hungry for the first time after a Thanksgiving meal.

We have been to Urban Farmer twice in the last year. The last time was 17 Nov 2018. For the value, it is to pricey. We are not meat eaters, and that rules out most choices for dinner. Our food and service was fine. Maybe we just do not fit in their atmosphere and décor.

Had an amazing experience at Urban Farmer. Our server, Anna, was incredible and gave us some amazing recommendations. Highly recommend the charcuterie board. We enjoyed the beef tongue and spicy salami with sheeps and water buffalo cheese. With the house made mustard, crackers, and honey—oh my god. Can never go wrong with wagyu steak but also ordered the cauliflower steak to try a lighter option and was blown away. The pistachios brought out the most amazing texture and enhanced all the flavors. Tip, the portions are very generous. A side dish can feed four and an entree can easily serve 2. We left very satisfied and will talk about this meal for ages.

The steak was delicious, and the ability to sample so many types of steak with the “flight” was pretty amazing. The mushroom side dish was amazing. Beer was chilled. Our waiter was great.

There were a couple forgivable mistakes such as too much gristle along a corner of one of the steaks, a strange vibe coming from one of the employees, and that the restroom was surprisingly unkept with paper towels thrown all over the place and no fresh ones available.

The high quality of the food and our amazing waiter more than made up for those shortcomings. I would definitely come back.

As a side note, its an interesting concept to have a “sustainable” steakhouse, where beef is one of the most environmentally unfriendly meats you can buy. I like the idea of local, farm to table. But if you’re going for sustainability 18oz of beef is probably not the best idea.

The best scallops I’ve ever had. We had a party of 9, with quite a bit of separate checks. They were very accomodating, and allowed me to squeeze an extra 2 people to our reservation/party last minute (about 15 mins before our reservation time). Thank you all for a great meal and night!

The service was terrible. I requested my steak be cooked medium rare. It came out VERY rare. Sent it back to get cooked a bit more and came back the exact same and cold... the butter didn't even melt. The wine we ordered was also a different year then described on the menu. Me and my mom are both celiac and the waiter openly admitted to forgetting we were both gluten free when offering us dessert. For the amount we spent it was not worth it and I will never go back.

For the price, I expected perfection, I did not get it. Had a potato gratin with a blob of uncooked potatoes in the center. The mixed veggies were so overcooked we couldn't tell the difference between the broccoli and cauliflower (seriously?). Loved the bread, my pork chop was cooked perfectly and I have to recommend the tableside prep of mushrooms. I could eat that for dinner. Service was fantastic - Holly was super attentive without being obnoxious. I think if I go back it will be for apps like the charcuterie and cheese (delicious) at the bar, it was hopping. Maybe I expected too much.

The receptionist acted like it was a bother to seat us. She put us in a middle table in between two other close tables even though we had reservations for 5:30 and no one else as even around. Both of our meals came out cold as though they were sitting around. It also took an exceptionally long time to be served even though we were dining early and the restaurant was mostly empty. It was my wife's birthday so it was extra disappointing.
