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.

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.

Overall brunch was good. Service could have been better. Our table took a long time, even thought we had a reservation and restaurant wasn't super busy, and there wasn't anyone seated at the table ahead of time. Waiter seemed overwhelmed. In general, restaurant seemed understaffed.

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.

We had a lovely family brunch for four before the Rockies game on Sunday. This is a cool spot with great ambiance. The menu was hard to choose from because there were many tempting entrees. My 20-something sons are both foodies and they loved it!

Prices are on the high end but menu & food was good. The service in the dining area was a little uptight. I think for the somewhat casual/inviting ambiance they would be better off having a more laid back approach to their services.

Not a good breakfast experience. Front of the establishment empty...no greeter. Found my guest at a table and waited 10 min before anyone showed up. Initially offered coffee with breakfast, and nobody every came back until I prompted the need to get the check. Surprising...have had good experiences previously...maybe understaffed that morning or still asleep.

We were seated originally in a very busy section, and when we asked for a quieter area, the staff accommodated us right away. Our waiter was brisk but proficient and we never lacked anything.

Cheese plate was very good. Phenomenal gouda. Main course of steaks were probably some of the best we've ever had. Absolutely delicious. We kept saying it was better than ice cream. Sides were so-so, and not worth the cost in my opinion. Might have felt differently had we gotten the table side mushrooms, but opted for the more modest mac and cheese as well as the broccolini. Tasty, but still....

We will definitely return!

My girlfriend has a patient who is the butcher here, and she relayed to her patient that I eat and Guard&Grace all the time and the butcher claimed this place had noticeably better cuts of meat.

He was right...best steak I've ever had in my life, hands down. I will be back as often as possible!sd

Restaurant was fairly empty when we arrived but was seated at a table beside the bar and the waiter service area. We asked to be moved and they did, to a table by the kitchen that seated five but there were only two of us. The tomato and avocado salad was not as good as a previous visit, but still ok. The filet I ordered medium well was just the other side of rare and my son’s ordered medium rare was full on rare. Didn’t send it back but they were apologetic and comped my steak which was every nice. My son enjoyed the Mac and cheese, but the summer squash did not have much flavor. Overall, nice staff but not a five star food experience.

We went on an evening with a ballgame at Coors Field so opted to use the valet shared with the Oxford Hotel. It got a little backed up at 5:30pm but the manager of Urban Farmer offered to have the valet move our car from a meter for us and comped a cocktail. Wow - not necessary but so appreciated. The food was simply Amazing and the service was stellar by Lex. Don't miss the fingerling potatoes or squash or mushrooms (which they grow in basement and prepare tableside)!

Go here to spend your money and I can guarantee you will not leave disappointed. I ate the 18oz Wagyu Ribeye and it was possibly one of the best steaks I’ve ever had. On every level this establishment delivers. Corn bread, crab legs, broccolini.. all incredible. Our server Sean was on point and very knowledgeable. The sommelier had some real passion and held great conversation. Overall, wonderful experience. I wish I wasn’t an out of towner so I could enjoy it more often!

PS. We didn’t try the mushroom cart but we did get to witness them whipping up their home grown mushrooms and the smells emanating from that skillet were mouth watering. I suggest giving it a try!

My husband and I celebrated our 25th Anniversary at Urban Farmer. We were greeted with a lovely handwritten "Happy Anniversary" card. I had the chicken which was amazing and my husband had a juicy ribeye. My soup came out cold, but they quickly made me another and the sous chef came out to serve it to me with his apologies. Nice touch. Our table side cherry dessert was delicious and was topped off with complimentary champagne to add to our special occasion. Thank you Urban Farmer! We will definitely be back!

Service was subpar; we were never checked on for drink re-orders (which we all would have orders) or to ask if the food was ok. Food was just ok—not what I expected from Urban Farmer. Took out of town of town friends and was embarrassed to have recommended it over the other brunch spots nearby.

We were in Denver for a concert and had a night free and gave this a try. We enjoyed everything about our meal. We wanted to try a variety of things and all of them were outstanding. It was a great place to sit and watch people outside, a big open window right next to our table. Service was timely without being obtrusive. We are blessed to be able to travel and eat in nice restaurants. This was one of the better dining experiences. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the Lodo area.

Atmosphere was very nice, on the other hand, 2 different waiters dropped & broke dishes, it was very loud & disturbing. Expensive for what we got. We were not impressed with our side dish & our butter was served cold for our king crab. We were not asked if we would like any ground pepper for our filet. I left disappointed.

Urban Farmer has a great menu and some excellent dishes including a side of sautéed mushrooms that they grow in house on a sawdust block and prepare at your table.

The server mentioned one of the most popular items on their menu was the NY strip tasting menu which featured 3 different types and you could also include a Wagyu option. My two other colleagues and I ordered this "medium". The first time it came out it was "raw" when we cut into each piece so we sent it back to be cooked properly. Well after three subsequent times needing to send it back we were ready to give up. On the third time we even asked them to butterfly it as the pieces of meat were more like a filet than any NY Strip we've ever seen. Even the chef came out to apologize after sending it back a second time.

The manager stopped by once after the first or second time of sending it back and then again after the third time. The entrée and one appetizer were "comp'd" which was appreciated however in a restaurant of that caliber we should never have had to send it back once let alone three times. I would highly recommend anyone ordering the NY Strip tasting menu request the meat to be butterflied if they want it cooked any way other than "rare"
