Urban Farmer was founded on the idea that combining responsibly sourced food, high-quality ingredients and down-to-earth values would create a new kind of steakhouse, where people could create memories and communities could thrive.

    Once we arrived (Google maps failed EVERYONE in our party and I didn't realize it was IN the hotel either 🤦‍♀️) everything was GREAT 🎉 From the host/hostess to the terrifically patient server Izzy, service was first class. We were an awkward group, 2 tables with 3-6 people at each, with some table hopping. We tipped well 😉 And the food was marvelous!! Everyone of the 9 of us ordered something different. Plus deviled eggs and charcuterie for both tables. Yum!!! Simply wonderful.

    We had an early dinner and enjoyed every bite. The steak was perfectly done and nicely seasoned. The salmon was excellent as well. The Caesar salad was fresh and flavorful. The cornbread was a nice palette cleanser. Out server was awesome with great suggestions for our stay.

    My partner and I sat down and began discussing our Sunday brunch options. We settled in and our peaceful atmosphere was suddenly disrupted by 80’s dance club music blasted right in our faces. We had to raise our voices to talk to each other. We asked that it be turned down or changed to something more appropriate. Neither request was honored. The food arrived cold and stay away from the chicken cherry sausage. The server was doing her best so we do not fault her at all. She showed genuine compassion for our discomfort. I’ve had several business meetings here and recommended this place to colleagues for years. I’ll certainly think twice now.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded 2 days agoHi there, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to hear that the music and volume were not you your liking. We certainly appriciate your feedback and changes have been made. Our chicken cherry sausage is often very well liked but it is certainly not to everyone's taste and that we can understand. In a situation like this we will happily replace any dish that is not to our guests liking. Feel free always to ask for a manager; we will certainly do our best to accommodate. We wholeheartedly wish you a future full of happier Sunday brunches to come.

    Had a nice Sunday Brunch here. The restaurant is light, airy and welcoming. The restaurant area sits in the middle of a courtyard of the hotel with rooms surrounding it. It is very pleasant, and noise level is quiet enough that you can easily carry on conversation. While the service and ambiance was great, I have to say the food was just okay. I expected a bit more. I had the NW omelette. I was a bit disappointed…not much flavor to it at all. My spouse had the vegetarian Benedict which looked quite good, but due to the overwhelming size of the English muffins, it was a bit much to finish, but better flavor than the omlette. Potato cakes were good, but quite crunchy, and a tad overcooked, in my opinion. All in all, it was just okay to good, but not worthy of the excellent ratings previously given.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded 3 days agoHi Kimmie, Thank you for taking the time to send such a thoughtful review. I am sorry to hear that the food was what you had hoped for, but I am equally grateful to hear that you have enjoyed the ambiance as as well as the service. I will certainly pass on your comments to our chef; we take all reviews seriously and we are constantly looking for opportunities to refine our guests' experience. Best, Peter McCarville Urban Farmer Restaurant Manager

    The manager who I tried to talk to a few times and explain how the food tasted was apparently too busy even though he was just chatting with his friends by the bar for 20 minutes! The food was bland and I didn’t get a refill on my drink for 30+ minutes.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded on September 8, 2022Thank you, Chad, for taking the time to share feedback about your recent visit with us. I want to sincerely apologize for your experience the other night. I will be looking into this immediately to find out why the manager didn't address you or your concerns. It is our policy to check in with tables for this very reason. We would really like to make this right, so please email directly us at the restaurant, so we can discuss it further. Thank you so much again for your time and I hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Matt

    We received excellent service from the two hosts and our server. They were accommodating and went the extra mile to create a wonderful dining experience (we were there for my husband's birthday). We were in the "preserves" room — quiet and intimate. Our server was attentive and personable. One criticism: I ordered the scallops with carrot and ginger purée, quinoa, fava beans, and pork belly. The pork belly does not belong. It overpowers the dish's delicate flavors. Other than that, it was wonderful. Can't wait to back.

    We have eaten at a couple of Portland's other high end steak houses and have always been disappointed. Not so here. Urban Farmer was fantastic. The atmosphere is not what comes to mind when you think high end steak house. It was light and spacious. Hannah, our main server, was a gem. She was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Vespers were perfectly made. Crab cake and shrimp cocktail were full of favor. The New York Wagyu tasting entree might have been the best New York steak that we have ever tested. The fingerling potato tart was a tasty side dish that paired well with the steak. Dessert was a yummy hazelnut cake accompanied by a couple of chocolate martinis. The only downside is the markup on the wine list. We were able to find one or two affordably priced cabernets; but, most of the list is insanely over priced.

    We've been staying at the Nines and eating at the Urban Farmer for more than 10 years. Unfortunately, after this last visit for Brunch this past week, we'll never go back to the restaurant. It was dirty (crumbs everywhere on the seats and floors and tables, very slow, and then my partner found small back hairs in his breakfast sandwich. They comped the meal (mine too) but we were already so grossed out. The vibe was also so different- its used to be an elegant, swanky spot with DELICIOUS food with kind and educated staff. They were blasting Madonna on a Sunday morning, and it felt like we were in some dive diner in SE PDX (which sometimes we like but that was never the Urban farmer). Not what we were going for at all. Too bad.

    The staff and service at this location was amazing. Everyone was friendly and knowledgable of the menu. We added on another person to our table half way through our meal and this place was accommodating. Our server was timely and checked in frequently. When we originally booked this place, I did not know that it was INSIDE The Nines hotel. It was quiet enough for light conversation and the food hit the spot! 10/10

    The food took almost an hour to come out and was not that great. I got a $19 omelet and the mushrooms were super chewy and hard to eat. It needed salt and pepper and I’m not usually one to season my food at the table. The hashbrown patty thing was good but again it needed salt and ketchup to have much flavor. My friend said her breakfast sandwich was pretty “meh” as well. The service was average. We had to ask for waters and I had to steal a fork from an empty table. They did keep the coffee coming though which I appreciated. Getting our mimosas from the bar before we sat down was like pulling teeth - they didn’t seem happy about it at all. The actual space/ambiance was lovely - I would say that’s what you’re paying for.

    Urban Farmer PortlandResponded on August 29, 2022Good Morning, Thank you so much for taking the time to give us your thoughts on your visit with us.

I would love to talk to you about coming in and giving us another try and get the experience you deserve. Please contact me directly at the restaurant, so we can discuss this further and form a plan for your return. Thank you again for your time and thoughts and I hope to hear from you soon.
