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.

I went here for brunch on a Saturday, it's on the 8th floor of a hotel. The view going up is beautiful, the food was outstanding, and the service was great as well. I have a lot of food modifications and they were happy to help. I got the farmers breakfast and somehow the kitchen messed up and gave me a lot of extra food, and they didn't charge me for it! Overall a great place!

Love this space and happy to always have excellent service. The food was delicious. We went early on a Saturday morning - no one in the DR- which helps with sound. Thank you for the wonderful service.

Went for brunch and all of us except one( group of 4) ordered breakfast, it was delicious, hot and large portions. One person ordered lunch ( burger) possibly the timing in relation to breakfast dishes, but it was cold and a bit undercooked and also expensive. Our server was awesome and kept our glasses full. Very nice environment and not crowded. I will return.

Came to celebrate my husband's birthday. This place used to be superb. Our waitress was very pleasant and attentive, so no complaint there. We ordered 3 steaks and the kitchen screwed up all 3 of them. Medium well instead of medium rare, no seasonings. It's a rookie mistake. For the money they charge, the steaks should be prepared perfectly. We got charged for a side dish that we ordered but was never served. We pointed out and they fixed the bill with no problem. I accidentally spilled 2/3 of my drink and had to order another one to replace. They didn't offer a complimentary replacement or any discount. Full charge. Once again, no big deal, but when they charge top dollar, one is expecting a different level of service.

The server was very rude and was very rushing. She didn’t even ask if I wanted any appetizers or any dessert. Just seemed like she didn’t want to be there at that moment in time.

We got Nick as our server and he was amazing! Helped guide with the menu and made it so fun! The bar tender Joe was also great and helped us with pre dinner drinks! We had some allergies at the table and the Sou chef came out to help! Comparable to a 5 star meal I have had in NYC and the service a 10!!!

Not sure if it was a bad night for the chef but every single dish had issues. Ordered the bone in New York strip Medium Rare and it came out well done, my wife ordered the mashed potatoes and they has some kind of OVERPOWERING condiment that they were inedible. Clam Chowder soup was cold.

Service on the other hand was very good.

the restaurant was not crowded. given the seating location i requested. my companion ordered a 6oz steak cooked medium well. i specifically asked the server if the kitchen could cook steaks to order. he told me they could cook steaks any way they are ordered.
meals arrived. mine was fine. steak was cooked medium rare, not medium well. i didn't send it back because we were there to dine together. sending it back meant i would eat alone or let my dinner get cold. my companion ate around the edges of the steak and took the rest home to cook it properly for lunch the next day. urban farmer bills itself as a steak house. great steakhouses cook steaks to satisfy the customer, not the kitchen. there is no excuse for the undercooked steak. either the meats they offer are the cheapest cuts that become tough if cooked past medium rare, the person cooking the steak doesn't care how it is cooked, or they don't have the skill required to achieve the requested doneness. i dine at urban farmer on a regular basis (when they are open)
and i always enjoy my meal. when they are selling that steak for $39 it should be perfect - no excuses. when i want my next steak i will go to el gaucho. suggest you show this review to the kitchen manager and the person who cooked (?) that steak.

Atmosphere was awesome, music was fun, food was INCREDIBLE. Service from Nick was some of the best me & my family have ever had. Great first time back at a restaurant & will be tough comparing any outing to this one for the near future! Order the dry aged ribeye if you can.

Steaks were great, especially the coulette, but the sides left a lot to be desired. I’ve been here three times and I just don’t feel it measures up to the price. Wine and cocktails are good, but menu sides needs some creativity and flavor. The music was loud and perhaps where we sat was especially difficult to carry a conversation near the speakers. Service was excellent though.

So glad to see that they are open now. We used to go there for their amazing food & atmosphere for dinners. The menu has changed though, a bit limited options now. I was disappointed to see that Roasted Duck Breast is no longer on the menu as that was very tasty (often what I used to order). Service was a bit slower than usual, and our waiter forgot about the yummy Cornbread that we really missed (and we eventually asked for it). Crab Cakes were wonderful, Ribeye perfectly cooked. They guided us with the sparkling wine options, and we enjoyed their recommendations. Don't forget to try their Brownie Sundae!

Food was pretty good, lackluster risotto but the rest was pretty amazing. Price is quite high for what you get, and I am not cheap when it comes to going out to dinner.

The food has seriously gone downhill. Their steak menu is much smaller than it used to be and the quality of the cook is super low. We won't be back and plan on finding a new steakhouse to go to from now on.

We ordered two New York steaks -- one medium-rare and one rate. Both arrived well-done. After being disappointed in the sides we got last time we visited (mac and cheese and mashed potatoes), we decided to opt for the french fries. They were terrible.

The drinks were awesome. The service was awesome The food is absolutely not worth the price in any way. We left wishing we had gone somewhere else.
