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.

Great choice of menu selection, excellent bartender
One of the best steakhouses in Denver (I like it better than Shannahan and Elways)
Contemporary design, relax environment.

Good coffee, great ambiance, spacious, good location. Parking is tough so plan ahead.
Menu options are numerous and unique enough to offer something new. Would definitely recommend.

We loved our experience at Urban Farmer! It did get a little louder than we were expecting as the night went on, but the food and service more than made up for that.

The idea of Urban Farmer is great! Our service was excellent and we enjoyed the menu options. The problem is if you are going to charge almost $80 for a steak, it better be a perfect, delicious mouth watering steak. There were 5 of us at dinner, 4 of us ordered steaks, and they were all over cooked from what we asked. We spent $550 that night to have very average steak that I could have prepared better on my grill at home. Completely disappointing. I will not be in a hurry to go back there, unfortunately.

Bring your second mortgage paperwork, it is not cheap. I do have trouble with restaurants that charge $22 for "ok" wine

The restaurant is very cool - Art Deco - and different, but breeze coming through with the door opening and closing all night was cold! I kept my husband’s coat in my lap for extra warmth. Our service was “meh” as our waiter had three tables set at the same time. Our waiter was distracted and his service was hit or miss. Our food was ok - duck was extremely tough but scallops were very good. Side dishes of Brussel sprouts & twice baked fingerling potatoes were both very greasy and not that good. Just ok - maybe we ordered incorrectly as it is a steak house and maybe they were having a bad night - we may try again in a few months.

Great spot downtown for business or casual breakfast. Not sure how busy they get in the weekday mornings, but not crowded, not noisy which is great. Lunch is typically hopping. Nice menu and will be back.

This was lovely. We stayed next door at the Oxford and loved popping over for breakfast. Your Potted Salmon was remarkable. The arugula and pickled onion were the perfect compliment.
Thank you so much. We will be back.

The restaurant was pretty slow, especially for a Thursday and the Steak took 45 minutes. Asked for dressing on the side for an up-charge side salad. Salad came drenched in dressing. Overall was $175 for two people. Not sure I saw the value.

Lovely decor, food is well prepared, service is extremely slow. I was there when they opened, service was terrible, but the staff and food was good, I gave them another shot. Unfortunately, I won't again as waiting over 20 minutes for a main dish isn't acceptable.

Without going into much detail, our wine order got a little messed up, which was fine, but I what really impressed us the most was how our waiter and wine guy handled it. They were extremely accommodating and handled the matter with class. Big shout out to you guys for being human and understanding. Even though the food was amazing, I would go back just for the culture this restaurant promotes.

Urban Farmer has quickly become my go-to steak house in Denver. From Brunch-Dinner, even happy hour cocktails, I have yet to be let down by any of their offerings.

As expected with a steak house, it’s a bit expensive, but here you will be paying for quality. The mushrooms are grown in the restaurant and cooked tableside, while the rest is locally sourced, organic, etc.

Belgian approved béarnaise sauce for the steak. Dad approved steak quality.

The food and service here was amazing; nice industrial ambiance also. Servers were wonderful and every dish we had was fantastic. I had King Crab legs, which is normally a side for steaks, as my main dish - it was so delicious; flaky and sweet. Steaks were great. Wine prices are higher than they need to be. Some wines were almost $100 a bottle more than I can find at other nice restaurants for the same vintage/same wine. But that aside, the wine list is GOOD. And the food and service make up for it. I'd definitely go back. Do yourself a favor and stop by the next door Cruise Room for a cocktail beforehand. Heather whipped me up a custom drink that was absolutely fantastic.

We will not go back. We were served by a pretentious waiter who hid when it took 60 minutes for the kitchen to get our order out. We had to ask others a number of times to go get him. They also served us the smallest 8 oz fillet I have ever seen. When the kitchen served it to us we through initially that they had split it so my wife and I could share it. Finally management did not seem to care at all about the situation. There are far better places to spend your money.

We shared a decadent Wagyu steak and sides and had a shrimp cocktail first course—it was all delicious. The butterscotch sundae was overly sweet, especially when the main dishes are so rich, though there was a palate cleanser before the entree.
