Pre-concert dinner was excellent! Casey, our server, was exceptional.
My Daughter’s birthday!
Wrote an accurate review but it forced me to shorten it. Waiter was good at interaction but we received terrible service, including a steak platter dropped in our laps, I was wearing white, a 3hr dinner due to slow service but Pepe the water man was amazing. GREAT CORNBREAD terrible experience, terrible overall food and service, $500 bill.
Daughters birthday. Best steak ever and great drinks and lots of fun
Abysmally bad from start to finish. We were seated at a small two-top and the chairs had stained fabric seats. So gross, I had to put down my coat on top of it, so I wouldn't sit in whatever it was. Server was delayed for a long time and finally came over to get our drink order. She could not name the beers. In Portland Oregon, a server could not name the beers or even beer styles! And they are not listed on the menu, so I see a tap handle for Pfriem and get that. Cornbread arrives, hot out of the can -- delicious and clever presentation. Soup arrives, a riff on French onion. But it is cold, too cold to melt the cheese. Bummer. But it's tasty, so we eat it anyway. We wait. And wait and wait. They bring out the wrong entree for me, and also the steak that my husband ordered medium rare comes out literally burnt. We send those back. They kindly sent over a cheese plate to tide us over while we wait for entrees. The steak comes out rare (not medium rare, it was cold in the center). The fish was fine. The manager was very kind in giving us a cheese plate, but that cannot make up for a kitchen and servers not doing a good job.
Expensive, good food and atmospheric. Good for a romantic date or a power lunch where price is not as mich of an object. There are steakhouses that offer better value for the food, but not the same setting.
The steaks are over-rated. Fine, but not great. It cannot compare to a good NY or Chicago steakhouse. The sides are fresh, but don't order the cream spinach unless you like tasteless mush. The seating is poor. If you want to dine with people you don't know, this is the place to go. The service was excellent. The pricing is silly expensive in light of the quality/preparation of the steaks. It was a weeknight and the staff wanted out of the place by 10pm. Again, the place is fine but don't expect to be wowed. The NW beer selection is quite good. However, It's not the Northwest Cuisine you will be hoping for.
In general a very nice experience. The servers are excellent, they know what they're doing, very friendly and with gentle up selling.
The food was excellent, very well prepared and sufficient servings.
My only complaint would be the price. $53 for a small steak is a little crazy when coupled with the other menu items. I hope the servers and kitchen staff are well paid.
The main dishes were very good, the desserts were very disappointing . The main issue that I have with this restaurant was the service. Seating was done very quickly, had to wait over 10 minutes to recognized by the wait staff, did not even offer water for the table until after 15 minutes at the table. Dining was done at the end of Sunday Brunch, restaurant was not busy, but no recognition from the wait staff as to adding dishes ( had to ask the waiter when he brought the bill that we did not request that we wanted to see the dessert menu). No one during the entire 1 1/2 hours of service refilled water, etc. I cannot recommend this restaurant others.
Best dinner we’ve had in a long time! Exceptional food, service and atmosphere!
Absolutely loved it. Best I've had. Delicious 😋. I will be recommending you to all.
If you only have room in your budget for one meal a month that isn't home cooked, make it Urban Farmer! You will not be disappointed. Beautifully decorated, amazing location, soaring ceiling feels like warm outdoor dining in the middle of winter. From steaks to scallops to sprouts, it was all cooked to perfection and explained/delivered by the most delightful/knowledgeable servers. I will be back!
This was my husband's first time back in Portland in 40 years. I had to bring him to the gem called Urban Farmer which I discovered when staying at the Nine's in August on business.
We were not disappointed! Food and service were both incredibly memorable It was a flavor party in our mouths!
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.
Very good steaks.
About $100 per person plus drinks .
Will go again !!
The hostess was so awesome and accommodating. The food was excellent.
Amazing brunch. Try the Bloody Mary Bar.
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.
Great food and cool place
Portland has a lot of great restaurants. This isn’t one of them.
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.
Great place for a double date! Food was incredible as was our service. Love the vibe & you can actual have a conversation. We will be going back.
I love the brunch menu and everything I’ve had here tastes great, including the Tails & Trotter Ham Benedict.
Went for a birthday dinner, had the ribeye and waygu beef, amazing, well prepared and melts in your mouth! Service was great, atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back.
Great experience! Excellent food and good service. Steak perfectly done. Colleague's scallops were delicious. Good place for a business meal as things are relatively quiet.
I love this restaurant! We've always had positive experiences with the food and service. We also love that we can hear each other when we dine at Urban since the noise level is very manageable.
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.
Wonderful. Staff is amazing!
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.
First time diners...the food was plentiful and tasty. It wasn’t so loud and busy that we had trouble conversing. I’ll be back!
