    Took my husband for his b’day lunch, but staff failed to make it any special even though the details were provided on reservation. Given small menu, we were expecting really good food, but it was less than average. Bartender kept messing around with music going loud to low the whole time as he was messing around with his coworkers. Ambience was the only part good for our reservation.

    Went here for my wife's birthday. Service was great, ambience was unique. The croutons in the beet salad were soggy and we didn't love that, but the steak tartare was excellent. We will be back for drinks and the steak tartare for sure. Great time.

    First time visit for Sunday brunch. Based on reviews, expectations were much higher. Ambiance is a little strange - this is in the hotel atrium, bright, but a bit noisy. Front desk staff attire was a bit off-putting (i.e. sloppy), service was odd - things were brought in bits and pieces, such as glasses without water, order taken in parts, lots of trips by wait staff from tables to kitchen without much thought. Food was mediocre at best. Had the steak and eggs, and an open faced cheesesteak. On both, the sauces were broken, meat under seasoned, and potato rotis uncooked in the middle.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded 4 days agoThank you for your feedback on this experience Geoff. We strive to create a memorable and elegant experience each time a guest dines with us. Our apologies that we missed the mark during this visit. Please note that someone from our team will be reaching out personally to gather information to help us meet your expectations on the next trip.

    Excellent food! Got the trout and a side of Brussels sprouts. Phenomenal. All the sides are billed as “family style” but quite small, although worth it. The ambience is modern and tasteful. There was a problem where the waitress put in another member of our parties meal as New York Strip instead of Ribeye and when the issue was drawn to her attention, she was quick to talk with her manager about a solution. Would 100% return for a meet up with friends or a nice occasion.

    I ordered the brisket dip, and it was pretty tasty! I'm not a big blue cheese fan, but it worked in the au jus. The fries were very tasty, too, but I probably should have ordered a salad with the sandwich. I would go there again, and order again, but I thought the food was priced a bit high, and our server was not super attentive or very outgoing (?), for example, when my friend asked for tea, she just said sure, what kind? Rather than letting her know what they had...

    As a vegetarian, I had a wonderful meal composed of the winter squash soup and the shared mashed potatoes, mushrooms, and brussel spouts a la carte. My companions enjoyed their steaks immensely. The cocktail I had was a cool take on an old fashioned and was great as well. Loved the environment and the service was wonderful.

    We went for their Christmas dinner, and while I had utmost gratitude for them being open and working on the holiday; there were a few issues we encountered that could have been handled better. For instance, our drinks took 20 minutes to get to us and we had to ask about them before it was acknowledged that they were taking awhile. And the same with the bread which was supposed to come out in the beginning of the evening — we weren’t told anything about them until one of our party asked for them when the main dish came out. And when they did come out after the server told us how good they are, they were dry and cold. I was a server for 10 years, and the best way to handle issues from understaffing, delayed items, etc is to come out in advance to let the party know things are taking a little longer or that something ran out and how it’s being dealt with. Quality wise, the first and main courses were mostly good, though the lobster was subpar even though it was a supplemental cost.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded on December 31, 2022Hi Guest, Thank you for reaching out and taking the time to share your thoughts. It is always nice to hear from a fellow server how we could improve, and we will certainly take your advice to heart. I am sorry to say that this is the first that I am hearing about this incident, and I would like to encourage all of our guests to reach out to a manager whenever any dish or element of service feels "subpar," "dry and cold" or "delayed." We will always do what we are able to make things right for our guests, and again, I am so sorry to hear about this incident. If decide to give us a second chance, please reach out to us directly and we will see what we can do to make it up to you.

    We we quite disappointed with the quality or our the NY Strip steaks, They were dry and tasteless. We had been to Urban Farmer in the past and the steaks were previously very good. It's a shame, it ruined the experience for us for Christmas dinner.

    We wish we hadn’t dined at Urban Farmer and definitely won’t be hurrying back. The servers (except for Morgan, the greeter), were clearly unhappy to be working on Christmas. I understand this but why be demonstrable in your dislike of being there with your guests? The food was average. Not great, not terrible. Maybe the chef was as unhappy as the servers. My eggs arrived chilly and my husband’s eggs Benedict were set atop a hockey puck of bread. The music was old rock, odd for Christmas, and much too loud. The atmosphere was cold and didn’t feel festive, aside from a few mannequins dressed up in charming Christmas tree regalia such as boughs of pine, ribbons, tinsel, and so on. They were a delight and I really wished they had inspired the rest of the guest experience.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded on December 31, 2022Hi Greg, Thank you for reaching out and sharing your thoughts and feelings about your Christmas day experience at Urban Farmer. I am so sorry to hear it was not what you had hoped for. This is the first year that we have had 2 ten foot trees and one 12 foot tree added to the 8th floor as well as 12 poinsettias, and I did my personal best to bring these decorations in, but I am sorry to hear that they did not have the intended festive effect that I was hoping for. The decorated mannequins are also a new addition to the 8th floor and I am glad to hear that you enjoyed them. Usually, our house-made English muffins are a hallmark of our positive reviews, and it is embarrassing to hear that your eggs were chilly. If I would have known I would have personally done whatever I could to make this right for you and your husband. Although I understand that you are not in a hurry to return, if you would like, please reach out to me directly for your next visit and I will see what I am able to do to make this right for you.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded on December 31, 2022Hi Guest, I send our humblest apologies for the miss print on the menu. This happens from time to time and it is such a disappointment to us; the last thing we want to do is miss-lead our guests.

    The food here is outstanding. A better value than other Portland brunches if simply because of the portions size, no skimping here. I wonder if maybe we could have loose tea instead of tea bags at this price, much much better. The space is cavernous, it's the large hotel area filled in with a restaurant and it feels cold and kind of strange. Maybe it's better in the evening? Anyway we would definitely go back for the avocado toast and the eggs benedict. It was really quiet on Christmas Eve morning.

    My husband and I went here to celebrate our 10-year wedding anniversary -- and it was the perfect spot. From the beautiful setting and gracious, friendly staff to the positively divine food and cocktails, everything was absolutely perfect. I particularly appreciated the waitstaff who were happy to answer questions and checked in just enough to make sure we were well served without hovering. The blondie with creme fraiche ice cream was truly the best dessert I have ever tasted. Highly recommend as a special-occasion restaurant.

    Great spot! Kinda unexpected on the 8th floor of the Nines hotel but nice surprise. Dry aged ribeye was delicious though I think we were a little disappointed by the sampler.. some cuts were better than others and still depends on the individual. Overall, excellent experience.
