In a world of white tablecloths and subtle snobbery, we’re doing something rare: being real. We’re less steak and more house. Our house – and yours. Urban Farmer was founded on the idea that combining responsibly sourced food, high-quality ingredients and down-to-earth values would create a new kind of steakhouse, where people could create memories and communities could thrive.

1. Took some time for our food to come however it was NY Day so they may be busy
2. Forgot to bring 2 food items we ordered but they billed us for those 2 items
3. No longer have crab omelette on their menu
4. Ordered buttermilk pancakes for $15 but apparently it is only for 1 pancake? That seems so expensive for a pancake?!

We have been going here for brunch but unfortunately for the price and menu they offer, there are other higher end brunch places that offer more in their menu at the same price range.

Sampled the Christmas pre fixed dinner. It was my first visit to Urban Farmer. To kick off , even-though our reservations were for 5:30 PM they already ran out of the Eggnog specialty beverage. The other cocktails available were tasty. The starters were awesome. We sampled the Caesar salad, the crabcakes and the shrimp cocktail. The New York strip was thick and juicy. It was plated with broccolini and fingerling potatoes which were just okay. We requested a side of their mushroom risotto which was featured on a different dish but they accommodated our request. It was delicious. The sides for the table were mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts which were also just OK. I must say the cornbread with honey butter was delicious. The service was exemplary and I was overall happy with my choice.

I took a friend to try the steak flights. As always it was great fun and the food was delicious. I swear that the flight used to have 4 steaks instead of 3, but it was still great. Thanks for a nice evening.

When you pay $600 for dinner for 4, you expect a certain level of quality. Note: $120 was a bottle of wine, and $50 represented 3 mixed drinks (get the Old Fashioned w/Bulleit Rye which was excellent). The setting is serene and relaxing in large courtyard on the 8th floor of a hotel. The artwork is interesting & fun.
We appreciate Chef Christiansen's desire to create unique flavors, yet that singular taste must be a good taste-not just something new on the palate. We had: brussels sprouts w/cranberry pesto, "mac and cheese" with tomato confit, potato tart, and seared greens. We all agreed the brussels sprouts were undercooked and odd. Imagine putting olive pimentos atop of the sprouts and letting it marinate for an hour or so at room temperature and you may understand the flavor. The "mac and cheese" was good. 2 of us liked it, 2 didn't. Again, it's a different taste and nothing like what you're thinking. I'd eat it again. The seared veggies was kale with a sunflower paste. It was good but nothing to write home about. The potato tart was yummy but the bottom was overcooked so we couldn't cut it.
Now to the steaks. I shared the $72 New York Steak Tasting with someone-ordering a medium rare for six ounces of each: Oregon Grass-Fed, Brandt Prime and Painted Hills 30-Day Dry Aged. All were served rare. But we weren't going to send it back because it was busy. I found the Grass-Fed to be gamey-but the 3 guys said it was their favorite. No one finished their Brandt Prime and our dog was happy to eat about $25 of beef later in the night. Prime NY=great.
2 desserts: Chocolate Fudge Sundae was boring and the "banana cake" on the bottom was dry. Imagine a firm whipped cream with no flavor.
Pineapple Caramel Butter Cream Cake. We each had one bite b/c it was dry as chalk. I said I wish we were closer to a rock climbing gym so I could use the cake for something.
Lastly, the guy pouring water was out of control LOL. We had a wet table all night from him splashing everywhere.

Good food, nice setting. A bit over-priced for breakfast, but paying for being in a sheltered environment in downtown Portland. We we there on a very busy day and the service was a bit slow, but not out of line for the circumstances. For me, it's a once-a-year breakfast stop, either before a Timbers game or for some other occasion.

We were extremely disappointed with the quality of the food. We were a larger party expecting an exciting breakfast, but in spite of ordering an array of menu items, we were disappointed across the table. And the coffee was terrible.

The seating is very pleasant, as is the open ceiling and decor. We would try them again for lunch to see if the food quality improves by meal. They appeared short staffed.

We arrived 15 minutes early and the host let us know that they would be sitting us at our reservation time. Which is fine but had 5+ open tables and no one else was waiting. Once we sat at our table took the server over 15 minutes to come over and we saw even more open tables
