Located in the lobby of the Nines Hotel, a luxury collection property, Urban Farmer features refined dining in an elegantly understated atmosphere. Prime Beef, dry aged in-house, takes center stage alongside locally grown vegetables hand-carried to the kitchen door. Local wines, many of which are organic and biodynamic, round out a stellar beverage program that Portland's own crafted Spirits. Classic cocktails, refined urban setting, with panoramic city views as seen from the lovingly restored verandas that line the Historic Meier & Frank Building, circa 1909. Whether you desire a quick, delicious country-style breakfast, a "locavore" lunch featuring Oregon's bounty, or dinner and drinks for 2 to 20 in Urban Farmer's artistically designed dining room, we look forward to serving you with homespun grace and warmth.

We had a good Father’s Day brunch at Urban Farmer. The honey biscuit was to come with sausage gravy and there was a minuscule amount. Shrimp and grits was the best dish ordered. Crab omelet was rubbery as the eggs were over cooked but otherwise good. Biggest problem was lots of small flies. Unfortunate but it didn’t ruin the experience in this lovely restaurant

Urban Farmer has potential. The place works great, but in summer with the overhead skylite there is no ambiance.... bright, bright, bright. Service is great. Attentive and knowledgable, giving just the right amount of attention. The restaurant bills itself as Portland Steak House but other than having a choice of sourced meet as corn fed, grass fed or 21 day aged there is nothing memorable about the meal. The steaks come out luke warm at best and the prices are very high for what you get.

My wife and I went to dinner at Urban Farmer for the first time on a Friday night, which I arranged as a surprise for her birthday.
Everything, from the decor, to the service, to the food & the drinks, to the ambience was just wonderful.
The space the restaurant is in has lots of natural light and the different sectioned off nooks make for an interesting mix of public and private seating arrangements. The decor, the furniture, the place settings all are very modern but not in a minimalist way.
The service was very personably and with a smile. The waiter was knowledgeable on both the food menu and the wine list.
The food was incredibly good. My wife had oysters on the half shell and I choose 2 out of 6 available cheeses from the cheese waitress.
Our main course consisted of duck breast and tenderloin and both were excellent. The steak actually made it in my top 3 of steaks!
Dessert was a key lime pie (an actual key lime pie) for my wife and the seasonal strawberry crumble for me accompanied by a 20yo port and a doppio espresso.
Naturally the bill came with a little bit of sticker shock, but all things considered it was money well-spent.
We will be back!

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere, but our party was very disappointed with the overpriced and low quality food we had for brunch. The bacon Benedict consisted mainly of thick fatty meat, the flat iron steak and eggs contained shells, and the chicken leg with the honey biscuit was soggy. We had heard such good things, but sadly will not be returning.

Urban Farmer was recommended to us by a good friend, and it did not disappoint. The cocktails were excellent, with the best ice I have ever seen. Believe it or not, that matters! The starters were superb and the the steaks were amazing! Great selection and quality. Every dish had the freshest ingredients used with ingenuity. Excellent!

Urban Farmer is always top notch. We visited for brunch yesterday and were planning to get our favorite benedicts (they make their own English muffins!), but could not resist the Chicken and Waffle special. The chicken was moist and had been marinated in a pesto type sauce and then battered and fried and laid over a bed of country gravy. Next to it was a buttermilk waffle with blueberry compote. Worth every bite! My friend ordered the Steak and Eggs and said it was amazing. The steak was perfectly cooked and also laid over some country gravy. We are always amazed at how they continue to blow our minds and tastebuds with amazing food!

Overall extremely nice. Great Service and creative drinks. Very nice wine list which featured many great local choices. The halibut and scallops were fantastic. However, I would not recommend the duck. The veggies were too salty and the dusk was bland.

Amazing food and service always! Genuine hospitality and a very professional team. Sunday brunch features a fabulous Bloody Mary bar with multitudes of house made pickles, assorted hot sauces, and incredible house made bacon. This is the best brunch place in town.

Amazing food, so so tasty. Crap “Bloody Mary bar.” Had some pickled veg and 1 type of olive and dried out bacon. Pretty depressing. There are waaaaaaay better Bloody Mary bars all over Portland that UF could learn from.

Usually I love coming here and doing the steak tasting. Sadly, this evening the steak was incredibly salty. Also, felt like we hardly saw our server. I brought my boyfriend for his first visit for his birthday and mentioned it in my reservation, but they didn't bring over a celebratory dessert. If this was my only visit, I definitely wouldn't be back.

Great service, good food. Meat was cooked perfectly. It was a bit odd to just get a hunk of meat on a cast iron dish without any vegetables or way of plating the meal. If you don't order any sides or salad be prepared for just meat for dinner.

Good food, but not on the level of other speciality steakhouses (ringside, el gaucho etc) which is at the same price point.

The food was amazing. Very nice environment, we were sat off in a smaller corner. Very cozy and quieter than in the larger areas. Service felt a little slow but we are used to being rushed at not-so-nice restaurants. Our steaks were ordered as medium-rare but they appeared more on the rare side than we expected but again that could be our lack of experience with fine dining.

Appetizers were great, particularly cheese selection and charcuterie. Seafood bisques was delicious, and halibut dinner was excellent. Steaks were cooked properly, but not as tender and tasty as other top steakhouses. French fries are great.

Horrible experience. Save your money and go to Podnahs bbqpit.
When you pay 2x for a meal your expectations are immediately high. This was a catastrophic failure. Server was friendly but too relaxed, telling of the food she and others were sampling in the back from the previous brunch.

Ordering NY sampler and wagyu ribeye with a few sides.

Cornbread came out on a dirty plate. Server almost dropped the cornbread can on our table when she noticed it and had to explain that “eggs always get stuck on plates”. New cornbread was delivered .

Steaks came out over cooked and lacking the flavor or tenderness that was expected. For a $70 Wagyu ribeye I expected heavenly, but I could have cooked this at home.

My fork was sticky: asked for a new fork. Fries were delivered and we found a random 1” square piece of packaging in the fries.

Had the kitchen redo the M Ribeye which was cooked MW. Came out MR this time, but the rest of my party had already finished their meal.

Manager comp’ed the fries and a bottle of water. Wow! Thanks! (Sarcasm)

$200 check with-out drinks. Lackluster sides and a steak I could have grilled ... (I doubt they really gave me Wagyu.)

Not recommended.

We made a reservation - and the restaurant called to confirm the reservation, and sent a text message to confirm the reservation, and when we arrived - at the time of the reservation - our table was not ready, although the restaurant was far from full.
I appreciated the reasonably low noise level.
Food was very good, although my 8 year old grand-daughter felt that her waffle could have been more crunchy.
For the rest of us, our food and cocktails were good.
