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.

From the light and airy space to the friendly service to the delicious food and drinks, a perfect dining experience. I was also pleased to see that in addition to an extensive wine, beer, liquor, and cocktail list there were plentiful alcohol-free drink options - not just soda and coffee, but legitimate mocktails. Well played!! Will be back for sure.

The meal and the service was excellent. I was a bit disappointed in the Caesar salad, as it was a bit watery. Everything else was perfect.

The ambience and design is nice! We went for brunch/breakfast on a Sunday.

My husband food was ok... he ordered the crab cake Benedict. I ordered bacon with potatoes and the pastry option (blueberry muffin). The muffins were very very average... it was like the ones you can buy at a supermarket or gas station but small. The potatoes were super greasy.
The tea is Sever in a big tea pot but only one tea bag is given therefore you will drink a very watery tea. Coffee was ok

Dustin is a great waiter that helped to acquaint us with the venue, the menu and selections. He was personable, knowledgeable and attentive. The porterhouse steak was very flavorful and tender. The ribeye was tough. The atmosphere is fun but noisy.

My wife and I try to make it here for date night at least once a month. The quality and flavor of their food is always top notch and their service is superb. While I'm a fan of the steak you can't really go wrong here. They also make one heck of an Old Fashioned.

Absolutely lovely experience. It was not what I was expecting. It is located in the NINES hotel, and it is in the middle of the hotel courtyard. I was expecting a small portland farm to table bistro, and this was not that. However, it surpassed my expectations on every level after the initial 'why am I in a hotel' moment. The service was on point and gracious, the ambiance was very cool and style-driven from the moment you left the elevator, all through the hallway and into the actual dining room. The food was where everything really came together. We ordered a variety of cocktails and plates and each was fantastic. I will return often.

Excellent seating at a corner table of choice with exceptional service. Food was a little different as the selection was enhanced by a new chef. Having eaten here many times for various types of meals, this one was particularly delicious. Love mixing up the menu more. Thanks for doing that. My companion loved the UF’s version of huevos rancheros. Avocado was a nice touch

Great steaks as usual! A couple of the sides were warm but not really hot on arrival, so they cooled quickly. Not a huge issue, still 4 stars at least!

I would love it if the UF bar crew could put a margarita through a blender.

Food was good, if a bit over priced. Our server was great, but food runners didn't tell us anything when bringing our plates. Bussers and server assistants were the real star of the show, very fast, very friendly, very productive.

Really nice atmosphere with the open Atrium. Liked being in our cozy area of the restaurant. Staff were personable and efficient. Food was very good. The canned corn bread was very unique and delicious. We especially liked the special Surf & Turf. We ordered the creamed spinach which was also very good. We would recommend Urban Farmer to our friends and will return.

A very cool look to the restaurant. Only they have problems, the food was very plain. Nothing unique, and compared to the thousands of other restaurants I have eaten at it would finish in the top 50%. It was just bla! The pork loin was dry, tough and flavorless, for being smoked you couldn’t tell. The $60 steak I had was awful, how can you ruin steak? Don’t waste your money on this place there are hundreds of very good restaurants in Portland this isn’t one of them.

My dinner experience was exactly what I was looking for... Intimate, quiet enough to hear my dinner companion, and the food and service were exceptional. Based on the set up I can understand some other comments about the brunch service. That tends to be a much louder affair, and with the extremely high vaulted ceilings I am sure it gets really loud. If dinner is any indication of the food at brunch, I'll come back anyway!!

Food and service was excellent. The ambiance was pleasant but the seating for four was at a long table so that others were nearby. I prefer a booth which is more private. Unlike too many restaurants today, the noise was not a problem. The prices were high although not out of line for other steak houses.

The ambiance was great, the service was excellent, but the value was not too great. I ordered a 30-day aged New York strip, which tasted fine, but not very tender and a little dry. She ordered the King Salmon, which was fabulous and the dessert was superb (Butterscotch Sundae). All in all not bad, but too pricey for the quality of that steak.

I love the restaurant itself and the overall feel. The food is good. For the price i would expect larger portions. Also, most of the menu is a little too different to me. I would almost rather you have more traditional items on the menu and not make everything soooo unique
