About Urban Farmer

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.

New favorite brunch spot in Denver, hands down. Don't leave without trying an English muffin - made in house and to die for.

Wonderful brunch! Everything was prepared impeccably. A wonderful farm to table restaurant with a great menu and solid execution. I would easily recommend this to friends and family. It isn't on the same level to michelin star restaurants, but far above the level of a typical "chain".

Service and ambiance were great. Food was overcooked which was disappointing considering how much it costs. But where it was prepared well, it was good. Expensive hipster vibe.

If you appreciate great food and service, you won't be disappointed. We had oysters and beef tartare for apps. The beef tartare was easily the best we have had this year. The beet salad was by far the best we've ever had and the side dish of squash was like eating dessert for dinner. The potato puree was melt in your mouth. They definitely understand how to cook a great steak and piece of fish. Staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive, but never overbearing or a bother. We had a 2.5 hour meal, and it was perfect.

This is a nice property and good atmosphere. It also has a great farm to table concept with the local purveyors listed. However, we were disappointed with the food and probably won't return. With all of the great brunch places in Denver, this is really a miss! The prices are ok until you realize that everything is a la carte. Giant English muffin with little on top for the Benedict was such a disappointment.

Service was terrible. Entrees came out 1.5 hours after ordering and only after asking the manager to intervene. Waiter did not care. Sides were cold, even after asking for a new serving. Steak was good but the only redeeming quality for the night and not so good that we would go back. Very disappointing.

We are not steak eaters, and had two fish entries. They were very good, and the accompanying veggies were also very good. Our waiter, Troy, was enjoyable and knowledgeable. The Butterscotch Sundae for dessert was superb. They have remodeled the restaurant; and did a good job. Their prices are somewhat higher than other good Denver restaurants; but it was worth it.

We had a fabulous Thanksgiving dinner here. We had notified the restaurant of severe food allergies when we made the reservation. Our waiter had already discussed with the chef what we could & could not eat, so we knew what to order. Above & beyond service & fabulous dinner!!

Big urban Pharma will ruin the real farm to table movement if they haven’t already with prices well over locally owned restaurants. Sage restaurant group is a primo knock off for guests who want to appear special.

First time at Urban Farmer. Not sure we will back. Headed there prior to Nuggets game last night. We love trying new restaurants with good concepts and good reviews. Obviously a farm to table restaurant. Overall we were disappointed. Cocktails were good. We started with the charred octopus which was cooked correctly and quite tasty. Also shared the Caesar salad, very good. The problems started when I ordered a $108 bottle of Chateauneuf-du-pape. 5 minutes later the waitress tells us the wine is not available, without a hint of regret. Selected a $90 Super Tuscan. 15 minutes later the wine still had not been delivered, with the cocktails finished long ago. Finally the sommelier/manager brings it over with many apologies, which we appreciated. She also sent the cheese cart over, giving us complimentary tasting. I think she handled that well. The $60 filets arrived shortly thereafter, one from Nebraska, corn-fed, and the other from Colorado, grass-fed, (which we preferred). They were peppercorn encrusted and asked for medium temp. They were in fact medium well and just too dry. Ordered vegetables ($18) , which were super average if not outright bad. The table side mushrooms with onions was the best dish of the night but hefty price($17). The waitress only spoke to us one more time since the wine snafu, not having delivered any of the dishes and not having poured a single ounce of the wine, which is a big pet peeve of mine when I’m being overcharged for everything. In fact the manager is the one who brought the bill over. The ambiance is good but if the restaurant is trying to go the laidback/cool vibe it is charging way too much for the millennial crowd it is trying to attract. It certainly falls short of a top tier steak house (Guard & Grace, Shanahan’s, etc. much better) which could then justify the higher prices. A $360 tab, tip included, is simply too much for what was delivered.

Great addition to Denver dining scene. Very steak forward, but feels less stuffy than your typical steakhouse restaurant. Try the NY strip tasting menu - fun to compare the difference between the steaks.

I'd had lunch here by myself and brought friends back for dinner. All the food and drink was great. But my steak even though aged, was tough and not very flavorful. I was surpised, but I just ate the leftover for lunch! Love the gimmicky but fun actual urban 'farm' indoors. Place is pretty, lively, desert to die for also.

Urban Farmer is a tale of two restaurants. The bar offers one of the better happy hours in town, with tasty, affordable bites, a good $5 Old Fashioned, and excellent friendly service (ask for Alex if he's working). The dining room is another story. The food is excellent, with most of the beef locally sourced, but with appetizers and sides at $14+ and entrees up to $75, this is a GREAT place if you have an expense account or if someone else is paying. Service on our visit was competent, but a little scripted, with a lot of suggested-selling going on. Ironically, one $75 choice - the New York Steak Tasting, which includes 6 oz each of grass-fed, grain-fed, and 21-day aged beef - is one of the best values on the menu if you're inclined to share. And the great values in the bar area don't extend to the wine list: at an average of 4X markup from retail on wine, this is the most aggressively priced restaurant for wine in Denver right now (with most others in the 2-3x range). But if you've got the wallet for it, Urban Farmer is a good choice.

Loved our steak "sampler" we got at Urban Farmer! My husband and I went for our 20 year anniversary. I made a res asking for a romantic table. When we arrived the hostess asked if we could wait a bit since we were early and they had a great table for us they were preparing. When I looked around there were nice booths so we agreed and had a drink at the bar. We were finally seated at a table right between the bar and raw bar where all the traffic of wait staff were:( Didn't feel like complaining and we were hungry. We ordered this steak "sampler" to share which was wonderful. You eat each steak in order (grass-fed, grain-fed, dry aged, wagyu) working your way up to the best. It was a cool way to do it and it was interesting to taste the difference. The root vegetables were amazing cooked in a pouch that they cut open. We also split an amazing salad that they nicely plated separately for us. The service was good. We had a husband/ wife team waiting on us. They both really knew their stuff regarding the meat. My only complaint was no creme brûlée:( They brought us a sorbet when we said no to dessert which was a nice gesture. All in all, I loved this restaurant versus the big steak chains that we could have gone to in Denver!
