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.

LONG waits for food. With a reservation, took 45 minutes from the time we sat down for the most basic breakfast service (eggs, potatoes, Ham). Food good but anything that set it asside (again, simple breakfast).

It is a nice environment with generally fine quality food . However, food, wine and cocktails all overpriced relative to similar venues

This was our second time to Urban Farmer, the last time being 4 years ago. Very consistent restaurant. Hadn't changed at all!
Cheese plate: So fun, they roll out a cart and let you choose. My favorite part :)
Steaks: This is where they shine. Very good. I feel they are overly salty, but my husband disagrees. No fancy sauces or toppings, just pure steak. My husband had the steak trio and was in a meat coma - he loved every bite.
Dessert: Ok, not amazing. Had some sort of peanut butter cake.

I struggle with this review a little because had we not just gone to El Gaucho a few months ago, I would probably be more enthusiastic about Urban Farmer. Don't get me wrong, it was really good, but El Gaucho was fantastic. Between the two I'd pick EG, but UF is definitely worth visiting.

I have been to two other locations and was expecting the same atmosphere-extremely disappointing. Basically in a big middle open area of a hotel. They tried, same type of decor etc but it just didn’t work. Meal was overpriced for what we got, service was friendly.

I took my in laws to this restaurant and while the food was decent enough tasting, I did not like the value for the dinner menu. In my opinion there’s should be sides included in your $50+ dinners not family style on the side for an added cost that’s insane! There was also mainly beef options which is fabulous for some, but perhaps include a second chicken option in times like these where health issues are on the rise. You are paying for esthetic more than the food, I will not be returning.

We were expecting a better meal but was disappointed in the food we were served. We enjoy nice steaks at many steakhouses across the country and this was below average. Our steaks weren’t seasoned well or cooked properly. The sides were also nothing special. The best thing was our drinks from the bar - we really enjoyed our old fashioneds.

Server good. Table too tall for the seating offered and too small to accommodate plates comfortably. Menus an awkward size (half the size of the table), with no place to put menus after viewing. Food had too many ingredients, too many flavors. The shrimp grits was very good -- until the added barbecued pork -- not a good version and too strongly flavored for the dish. The word to sum up the dining experience is "awkward" which is not what one looks for in a meal out.

It was our first time going, we saved up a lot of money to go since we don't normally dine formally. For the service, food, overall experience and atmosphere it honestly wasn't THAT expensive! I even ordered a 20oz wagyu steak and the price still wasn't terrible!

The dessert was absolutely beautiful. We will definitely be saving up our money and coming back!

Urban Farmer never disappoints. Impeccable service. The wagyu steaks are breathtaking. The steak tasting menu is always a fun novelty for people who have never eaten here. For sides, the mac and cheese and fingerling potato tart are amazing! My only complaint is that I am always way too full to try one of their many tasty looking dessert options.

We went to Urban Farmer for the first time for my husband's birthday. My steak wasn't cooked properly and had to be sent back 4 times and when it finally came back, it was tough and overcooked. My husband loved my meal, but my mom's pork was too salty. I also asked for sparkling water 3 times and received flat Voss sparkling water. The manager did take a significant portion off our bill, but we won't be returning.

The service we experienced was excellent! Our server was knowledgeable and attentive, offered personal recommendations & obviously took pride in this restaurant. Ambience is cool, this place is tucked in a hotel! Halibut was outstanding and the mini corn bread when we first arrived was a great touch. Creme brûlée was disappointing but the fresh fruit served with it was wonderful. Overall, great dining experience.

The dry aged and wagyu ribeye are supreme. This is a great steakhouse for the simple reason of variety of steaks. There are several cuts and styles to choose from with a great accompanying wine list. Listen to staff recommendations as they are great!

I thought this place was just ok... I ordered the New York steak sampler. I really only enjoyed one of the samples. My salad was delicious though (heirloom tomato). Service was great.

Wonderful restaurant and ambiance! The breakfast food was so fresh and flavorful! I had the vegetable frittata and my husband had the oatmeal, which he said was nothing like he had ever had! It was so good! Then he had the blueberry pancakes. The service was the best! My only wish is that they had other milk alternatives like Oat and Hemp for their lattes! It was our favorite breakfast so far! ♥️

Urban Farmer was amazing. The use only local farms for their ingredients. We had the corn soup, grass fed ribeye, and shrimp cocktail. we will definitely return next time we are in Portland.
