Steakhouse
Urban Farmer Portland is a modern American steakhouse featuring indigenous and locally sourced food products from artisanal craftsmen. 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 went for the Easter Brunch and found the variety and quality of food to be very good. Many of the dishes weren't "traditional" brunch fare, like oysters on the half-shell or charcuterie, but there was something delicious for everyone. The drink menu, again, had many choices from interesting cocktails to a good wine and beer list. Our server was friendly and helpful but was a little absent minded which could be due to how busy it was for the holiday dining. The setting in the glass-roofed atrium was comfortable, bright and delightful.

We'd like to go back for a non-brunch meal sometime.

I’m not sure this restaurant serves anything that does t taste amazing. I try and come to Urban Farmer Portland when I’m in town. The cornbread they serve at the start is amazing. It reminds me of my moms homemade recipe. The steaks are incredible. So tender and cooked to perfection. It’s pricey but worth every penny.

For how empty it was the service was not up to par. Also asked for my streak to be medium rare and it was very rare but didn’t send it back. Other food was good.

The Bloody Mary bar was the highlight and the reason I’m giving 3 stars instead of two. Besides that, it was almost hilarious how many things they got wrong. Wrong orders, wrong drinks, out of one main course we ordered, brought people only 1 egg instead of two (seriously who forgets an egg off TWO separate breakfast orders?). They gave us $20 off our bill for all the mistakes, but it was still such an expensive place and the food was so mediocre. I felt bad taking people there since there is SO MUCH good food in Portland. Oh well, lesson learned, will not go back.

Our dinner server and service was fantastic. Wine and steak choices can be overwhelming due of the plethora of options... and my lack of knowledge of wine. With a little input from us our server lead us through a fantastic meal. Bottle of wine and 2 cuts of beef with sides for under $200. Sunday evening, 3 hours of quiet, and comfortable atmosphere to enjoy each other's company.

From the light and airy space to the friendly service to the delicious food and drinks, a perfect dining experience. I was also pleased to see that in addition to an extensive wine, beer, liquor, and cocktail list there were plentiful alcohol-free drink options - not just soda and coffee, but legitimate mocktails. Well played!! Will be back for sure.

The ambience and design is nice! We went for brunch/breakfast on a Sunday.

My husband food was ok... he ordered the crab cake Benedict. I ordered bacon with potatoes and the pastry option (blueberry muffin). The muffins were very very average... it was like the ones you can buy at a supermarket or gas station but small. The potatoes were super greasy.
The tea is Sever in a big tea pot but only one tea bag is given therefore you will drink a very watery tea. Coffee was ok

Dustin is a great waiter that helped to acquaint us with the venue, the menu and selections. He was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. The porterhouse steak was very flavorful and tender. The ribeye was tough. The atmosphere is fun but noisy.

My wife and I try to make it here for date night at least once a month. The quality and flavor of their food is always top notch and their service is superb. While I'm a fan of the steak you can't really go wrong here. They also make one heck of an Old Fashioned.

Absolutely lovely experience. It was not what I was expecting. It is located in the NINES hotel, and it is in the middle of the hotel courtyard. I was expecting a small portland farm to table bistro, and this was not that. However, it surpassed my expectations on every level after the initial 'why am I in a hotel' moment. The service was on point and gracious, the ambiance was very cool and style-driven from the moment you left the elevator, all through the hallway and into the actual dining room. The food was where everything really came together. We ordered a variety of cocktails and plates and each was fantastic. I will return often.

Excellent seating at a corner table of choice with exceptional service. Food was a little different as the selection was enhanced by a new chef. Having eaten here many times for various types of meals, this one was particularly delicious. Love mixing up the menu more. Thanks for doing that. My companion loved the UF’s version of huevos rancheros. Avocado was a nice touch

Great steaks as usual! A couple of the sides were warm but not really hot on arrival, so they cooled quickly. Not a huge issue, still 4 stars at least!

I would love it if the UF bar crew could put a margarita through a blender.
