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.

The atmosphere is casual elegance and the space is airy and light. We all enjoyed good brunch plates - the veggie scramble was superb and the shrimp and grits fit for a Southerner!

Do not hesitate, this restaurant is a perfect as I could imagine. Our brunch included a shaved vegetable salad with a delicious crunchy quinoa topping that was a big upgrade from the croutons you'd see at a lesser restaurant. The French Toast had a lovely bananas foster sort of jam with it, and real warm maple syrup of course. Service was flawless, and the room is warm and quiet.

The food was excellent, wine was a little expensive, service was absolutely impeccable! Loved the ambience, although our heartstrings were tugged remembering Meier & Frank and kissing under the old clock.

I ordered a medium rare steak that came very rare, with parts of the middle even cold. The cheesecake was a huge disappointment to the night. The Mac and cheese was very good, as was the potato fritters. Service is good, but the food just didn’t meet my expectations at all.

It was a bit expensive for what it was. For a $150 meal I thought I would be a little more "wowed."

The duck didn’t taste very good at all. Other then that all the food was amazing. The 7x steak was to die for. I have never had a steak that tasted so good.

Food was great, service was top notch, ambiance was great for date night. We went on Valentine’s Day. Expect to pay quite a bit of money for food and drinks. The tables are super close together. There is probably a foot between each table so you’re pretty close with your neighbors. Can literally hear their conversations. Which makes it a little awkward.

A surcharge added to the bill, are you kidding me!
Raise your prices and don’t tell me about it!

For that very reason I would consider not going back, not to mention the service was slow and unfriendly.

I love this place for brunch - come here often. The food is top notch with great variety to please everyone including gluten free options. What I like most is the noise level - the acoustics allow for a comfortable conversation. So many other restaurants are so loud. Drinks are great along with the fun and creative Bloody Mary bar.

My daughter and I went for my birthday dinner, we were looking for a nice steak house experience. The staff and ambiance were as expected, a nice experience. I was very disappointed with the whole meal from appetizer to dessert. We were early for our reservation so sat in the bar, ordered a drink and the spiced nuts. Drinks were nice, nuts very bland. When we were seated we ordered the Prime Beef Tartare as appetizer, it was bland and flavorless. We ordered the New York Steak Tasting with the 7X Wagyu Beef which is 4 different 6oz steaks. Presentation was lack luster, served on a warm plate. The steaks were all supposed to be medium rare. They lacked consistency , one was rare, two were medium rare and the other medium. Each had it's own very distinct flavor, which was nice for the tasting. However, not worth the $100+ for the Steak Tasting. We ordered the Creamed Spinach Gratin for our side, it was runny and flavorless. For Birthday dessert we ordered the Molten Chocolate Cake. Again, very disappointing. The cake came dry, crumbly and not very molten. So all in all, for the amount that we spent on dinner. I would definitely not recommend this restaurant. I have had much better meals in this price range.

I love the atmosphere of this restrauant so much and had amazing food the first time I went that I wanted to take my husband there for his birthday. Absolutely everyone that worked there seemed at the very least miserable if not down right rude and really ruined our experience. I can’t believe I paid to valet my car, get charged more than the menu advertises and spoken to the way the bartender spoke to us!

We ordered off menu for some of our party and had lots of allergy questions for others in our party. They skillfully met every request and provided great suggestions of things/directions we hadn’t even thought about. For those of us who ordered from the menu, we were delighted with pairings, presentation and palette. Every note was executed beautifully. Gordon Ramsay would weep tears of joy over their scallops and risotto. Definitely going back. Worth every penny.

Usually the soup is a wonderful meal in itself. This visit there was barely any soup in the shallow bowl at all! Not worth the price and quite disappointing.

For the high prices and what we expected to be a high level of service there were some notable issues. No one offered to take our coats (winter time) but we noted others had their coats taken. We were seated in a large room where we were the only party. It was about 40 minutes before anyone else was seated in the room. On our way to this room we passed several nice 2-person tables in nice areas with good mix of people. After our main course, our table was not cleaned (wiped down) after dishes were removed. It needed that attention. We were approached by at least two other person, other than our server, who asked how our food was - this was before we had a chance to have a bite of our food. It was a bit obnoxious, as if they were trying too hard, but in all the wrong ways. We left feeling like this place didn't have a good idea of what really good service is. We would not go back, not at these prices. Respectfully.

Pretty basic. Definitely a good deal if you want to enjoy a big 20oz Wagyu steak. It’s defin big enough to share. The rolls with black garlic butter are great. Loved the sweet potato that came with my duck- however did not enjoy their duck breast. Too rare for my liking and not very tender or tasty. I regret not sharing the wagyu with my husband or even just enjoying all the sides as a meal.

We went here for a date. The food is excellent, but pricey. The cornbread was AWESOME, I would go there again just for that. Steak was cooked perfect and seasoning was mild. I had the yukon gold puree(creamy mashed potatoes) and it tasted really good, but concurrency was odd, just do mashed potatoes.......geesh.
