The signature NY Strip sampler sirloin was a disappointing. Not nearly as tender as expected. The Ribeye and Filet lived up to expectations.

Everything was excellent! Started off with an heirloom tomato and waxed bean salad. Shocked at how much I loved it! Then had the grass fed NY Strip! Ordered it med rare Pittsburgh and they cooked exactly right! Waiter was very knowledgeable, friendly and quiet cute! Can’t wait to go back! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

We came to discover some great local grass-fed beef and had a server who clearly thought that all grass fed beef is inferior to grain fed beef. I have had and raised plenty of superior grass fed beef and understand that there is great variability in the quality of the end product based on management decisions. We found our server to be ignorant and offensive on this topic while acting like a know it all. We enjoyed the charcuterie and appreciate the focus on local, but would love to see a more farmer friendly, nose to tail menu.

The food was amazing. The service was excellent. We ordered the Steak Tower and Waygu Rib-eye Steak. We shared this as a group and we all agreed that the steak was the best we ever tasted. We also order the charcuterie board and asparagus. Sumptuous. Next time I am in Denver I will be going to Urban Farmer and we have recommended it to all of our friends.

In one word, Outstanding. Our meal and experience at Urban Farmer was simply incredible. My business colleagues and I were warmly welcomed and seated, and quickly greeted by a very friendly server who answered our questions about the menu with an impressive depth of knowledge. Cocktails were very creative and the wine list was expansive. We enjoyed a charcuterie board of house cured meats paired with delicious cheeses for the table. For the main course, our steaks were just amazing and perfectly prepared. The beef certainly stood on it's own, but we shared some incredible sides including a potato tart, broccolini and house grown mushrooms. The table side preparation of the mushrooms was spectacular and delicious. Unlike anything we have ever enjoyed. My salad was super fresh (and local) and the sides a perfect accompaniment to the steaks, recommendations from out server. The meal was topped off with an encore table side prepared baked Alaska. This was a meal to savor and remember and I will definitely be returning next time I am in Denver.

Lovely dinner with family. Food and service were great. Heirloom tomato and avocado salad was fresh and delicious. Three of our party of four ordered beef, including the waygu. All cuts were cooked to perfection and the meat was tender and tasty. Prices are high, but a lovely location for a special occasion.

I took my wife and her parents here for her birthday a few days ago. I wrote a note in the notes that it was her birthday and the server wisher her a happy birthday and comped a appetizer and a desert without me having to say anything. He was very attentive and cheerful. Staff was great.
The atmosphere was awesome. It's cool how they grow all of their produce either on top of the building or in the basement (for mushrooms). The steak is phenomenal and locally sourced.
The food was just all around amazing. I don't know that I've had a better meal in the past few years. A+ for sure.

Our first time at this restaurant, but it won't be our last. Lex, our server, was wonderful! She made excellent suggestions on dishes, all locally sourced, and we followed her lead. The wedge-style salad had goat blue cheese, and they split it for us! The corn bread was perfect (not too sweet), my 6 oz filet was fabulous! My husband's bison ribeye was incredible, and the sides of home-grown mushrooms and cheesy potatoes were fresh and flavorful. We had lots of leftovers for another 2 meals. And somehow, we managed to eat the chocolate dessert, which was sublime. Also, they were out of the wine we ordered, and they replaced it with a bottle from the same vineyard that was even better...for the same price! Altogether a lovely evening, with fantastic food.

Start to finish a fantastic meal. Mushrooms (grown in the restaurant) cooked in marsala at the table were amazing, honeycomb (harvested from the roof of the hotel) equally noteworthy. All the entrees were excellent as was the service. Was surprised it wasn't more crowded!

The steaks were very tender, with a good selection of local farm products. Several options for table-side preparation. However the restaurant was VERY noisy. Even sitting next to each other, we had to shout to have a conversation. The music was way too loud.

Food was “good” but service was terrible. They tried to seat us at the table adjacent to the front door and hostess stand despite the fact the restaurant was only about half full. When we asked for a different table we got a dirty look and some attitude. When we were seated it took about 15 minutes for our waitress to come to the table and ask us if we wanted drinks. The waitress forgot we ordered salad until we reminded her. The salad came to the table about 30 seconds before our entrees. One of the entrees came to the table about 5 minutes after the other three. Not a good experience and definitely not worth the money.

Tried for first time & left sorely disappointed. Had the house specialty - New York sampler. Found it way under cooked & terribly salty. And in general steak was just not that good. There are much better opinions in town to spend your hard earned dollars on.

Our first visit to Urban Farmer. It was terrific. From the signature cocktail (not to be missed!) to the salads, steaks and sides everything was fantastic. Only item we found lacking was the table side cherry tart. Sounded great on the menu but turned out to just be a slop of semi warm cherries.
Service was very professional and helpful.

Our meal was quite expensive - $600 for 4 people - although we did have a nice bottle of wine - but diners should be aware and prepared that the pricing is similar to an upscale steakhouse - which Urban Farmer is - just nicer.

I felt like the food was meh. The fried chicken sandwich had too much tomato on it, so much that it was slopping out the sides. The chicken was good and the pretzel bun was too, so the tomato was just an unnecessary messy overpowering addition. The side salad was awesome but super tiny. My colleage's salad came served in a jar which was cute; but it looked like it was nothing but iceberg lettuce. So maybe I just need to try different items.

Three of us attended a business lunch for a new employee. We were seated immediately, and I was a little worried because we were right beside the door the servers used to access the outdoor seating. My worries subsided as I noticed the servers swiftly moving in and out of the door effortlessly. The food was excellent and well-prepared. The atmosphere was very conducive to conversation which helped us get to know our new employee better. The server and her helpers had perfect timing, and we were checked on at least about five to six times throughout our meal. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

The best item I had was the cornbread. The charcuterie was just not good. It came without the bread and about 25% of it was slices of lardo (just pork fat, nothing else). Not sure what I was supposed to do with it. The steak was fine but not spectacular. I wouldn't go back.
