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.

Food was ok. I liked my halibut but wasn’t the best. My hubby ordered the wagyu 7X from Colorado. It was undercooked and we asked to cook it more. It wasn’t tender as wagyu should be and had vein/gristle, not worth $$. We had wagyu before and this was not up to par. The sides of potato purée and foraged mushrooms were good. The best part of the meal was the cornbread and accompanying butter. Service was ok, a little pretentious IMO.

Their service was exceptional! The drinks were delicious and their cornbread was delightful, however that’s where it ended for me. The texture of my tenderloin was buttery and delicious, but it was over salted and served lukewarm. Additionally there was too much acid in their special salad—poor balance of flavors. For the price, I expected more. That’s being said, the restaurant was beautiful, clean, and the food was obviously very fresh. My prior (and first) experience here was the same: overly salted.

What a hidden gem! I was not expecting the outdoor feeling inside a hotel but the atrium space was gorgeous. The menu had many surprising and playful elements and all the food was delicious. My only feedback, I enjoy a true medium rare steak, but mine was a little undercooked. It could have used 1 or 2 more minutes, but was still edible to me, just more rare than a text book medium rare.

The food was great - but very expensive. This was a birthday dinner - included note in reservation and told server - but nothing was done - it wasn’t even mentioned. It was a nice setting even though it was in a hotel - but all the plants were fake - so it kind of ruined the “farm to table” atmosphere.

Surprising atmosphere welcomed us, WOW!
Greeted by charming lady, and our waiter demonstrated his belief in “Farm to Table” approach quite enthusiastically. Quite charming. Then came Hefe-weizen, one after another. Good start! Six of us ate steaks of various cuts, and all were good, except the one served medium. It was closer to well done and quite dry. Others were very good.

The steaks were on the dry side. Halibut nice and pea hummus fun. Cornbread fun and bok choy good. Atmosphere too much like a hotel and for the cost of food expected different. Drinks were unremarkable and service slow and very slow for couple next to use whose food arrived long after ours though they were there when we arrived.

El valet Parking cobra 20 dólares
El lugar es bonito, aunque da mucho el sol y llega a ser molesto.
Tardaron más de 50 minutos en servir nuestra comida, que solo eran ensaladas, además trajeron la comida sin respetar tiempos y también órdenes incompletas. El servicio es pésimo desde el Valet, la hostess, meseros....
No vale lo que cuesta.

I took my niece for her birthday. She ordered a steak. Normally she eats her beef well done. She tried medium on the advice of our server as the best way to eat her cut. It was too pink, so our server took care of getting it a little bit more done. No fuss, no muss. And my niece enjoyed her meal.

The desserts were awesome. We had a butterscotch extravaganza and a crème brulee and shared. Overall, it was a great dinner after seeing "Wicked".

We shared the steak sampler. It was delicious! Fabulous local wine made for the restaurant. Sides of potato, mushrooms and especially the Bok Choi were wonderful. Orange chiffon cheesecake for dessert was also stellar. Our server, Cassie, was very knowledgeable and attentive. Would go back for a special occasion. Breakfast was meh - tried it once and were glad we had lounge access

This was the first time I met someone for breakfast at Urban Farmer, so while I'd enjoyed the restaurant before I didn't know quite what I'd find.
What I found was a group of friendly and competent employees, excellent service, a quiet table for a business conversation and good food.
It's not inexpensive, but delivers good value.
The portions are quite generous -- next time, I'll do a half-order of the eggs benedict. The room is huge, but broken up into smaller clusters of tables so conversation is somewhat muted and there is a bit of privacy. Our server was terrific and the food arrived perfectly prepared. Fresh-squeezed orange juice was a big hit, and the hot coffee kept on coming.
Recommended.

Waiter trying to up-sell. Kind of an attitude overall. Both steaks were not very good. Both had to be sent back. Had to get double confirmed on both that yes in fact they were undercooked. Just wasn’t a good experience. We weren’t asking but the restaurant comped the whole meal. Then would give us a check for balance of items, leaving us no way to give even a tip. So I had to go to their ATM and take out cash to pay what tip should have been. Cost $3.50 to use ATM. Last time.

Our server and service was the only issue. She cared more a large table/large tip. Two tables that we seated after us. Got there food before we did. By at least 10/15 minutes. The guys who (refill water/clean plates; We're the best experience. The manager seemed NOT to notice us sitting for more than 30 minutes between our salad and main course.
