Steakhouse
Perfect For:
  • Good for a Date
  • Local Ingredients
  • Special Occasion
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 food, the atmosphere, the drinks, the service. 10/10. This place surpassed my expectations.
The service from start to finish was excellent. There was always someone there when we needed, just the right amount of check ins and drink refills, great recommendations and knowledge on the menu/ history of the restaurant. We were able to split 4 sides between 5 people and each get a steak, leaving so full we couldn't even get dessert! Th asparagus and wax bean was my favorite side. The fingerling potato tart was also a hit.

We had a fantastic time here. The food was excellent- definitely try the cheese board, they bring a cheese chart table side. Our waitress was very knowledge and even told me about an off the menu vegetarian option. The whole family loved their meal and the sustainability of the restaurant and it’s ingredients.

It was a very busy night and the staff worked extremely hard to offer great service to everyone. The hostess even accommodated our request to move to a quieter table. Even with the volume of guests, our food came out in a timely manner and was delicious. It’s an expensive restaurant, so we’ll save it for special occasions.

I would actually recommend Urban Farmer to friends, just not to their Easter brunch buffet. I've eaten there many times, and it was delicious every time, except for this past Sunday. The first problem I had was that I was only allowed 1 Mimosa or Bloody Mary. For the price they charged ($75 per person) it should have been bottomless. The second problem is that all the hot food was cold. It was displayed on counters with lights shining on the platters, but that didn't cut it. I don't think this restaurant has a lot of experience with the buffet style of dining. It seemed like they were doing it just for the money.

The restaurant is more spacious than it looks. Although the restaurant was full, noise level was good enough so that we could have a normal conversation without raising our voices. The steak tasting was such a fabulous idea! Although my preferred steak cut is the ribeye, which I will go for next time. Great wine list. Our server was very knowledgeable on both the food and the wine. Love the cheese and charcuterie bar. If you put everything I like about all the great steakhouses I've eaten at, Urban Farmer has all that but with a twist from the classics.

Leaving three stars because of the service

The good - ALL the food and drinks were amazing, flavorful, and worth waiting for.
Table side beef tartar preparation was a highlight.

The bad - 35 mins after being seated before being brought water/menu (after asking for it and had a reservation - they weren't full), another 15 mins on top of that to get a drink. Waitress was very uninterested in serving us and basically left the overall impression that we were inconveniencing her by having her do her job.

Was it worth $369 + tip (and we still tipped 20% even though she didn't deserve it)... probably not because of the service which is a shame since the food was so amazing.

I was in Denver for a conference and saw Urban Farmer while walking from Union Station. The hostess easily accommodated our group. The setting was perfect as we were a group of Deaf/Hearing adults who needed clear sightlines to communicate. Matt was our server. He was great, offering suggestions that were spot on. We had salmon, steak, chicken, mac n cheese, and scallops. Everyone was more than happy with food choices. Great place to sit and visit with great food!

They sold me a USDA Choice rib eye and advertised it as wagyu and charged 78 dollars for it. It was well cooked but I can get that steak anywhere for 25 dollars. Not sure if they know the difference or thought I wouldnt know the difference.

For months now, I’ve looked forward to dining here. The wait wasn’t all worth it.
To start, my dining partner and I shared a half dozen oysters. It’s hard to go wrong with fresh oysters unless you serve the liquid mignonette with just a FORK and the smallest piece of lemon known to mankind, and they did. This was not a good start.
I had the Foie Gras. Although the Foie Gras was nice, the ebelskiver ball was dry and the over-reduced cranberry compote, far too tart. I’ve made a better ebelskiver at home since I was ten.
My partner shared a bite of his charred octopus. Burnt to a cinder best describes the bitterness and char on this poor sea creature. Lucky for the mussels…They were notably missing from the bonfire of sauce-less burnt bits that filled the rest of the bowl.
Service was slow, both with drinks and food. The atmosphere was noisy and off putting, and we were shoved in the back next to the party room to watch the rest of the restaurant patrons from afar.
The martinis—decoratively small and overpriced. Canned green olives...really?
At this point in the meal I wanted to hate the steak, but it was so incredibly delicious that I couldn’t. However, the twice cooked fingerling potato tart failed miserably. It arrived so late to the meal, we had nearly finished our steaks. (poor service again) It could have used a third cooking as the fingerlings were underdone. Raw potatoes at a steak restaurant is a first for me.
As the most expensive steak meal I’ve had in Denver, by a hundred bucks, I can’t see going back. Not when so many steak restaurants do it so much better.

The steak tartare was excellent and prepared at the table, which was interesting and fun.
The staff and service was friendly yet professional and our server did a great job explaining the menu since it was our first visit. While the ambience and décor was very "uptown", it was a bit too noisy for me. it was difficult to have a conversation with the four folks at the table.
