Urban Farmer Cleveland Ratings and Reviews
Went for a friends birthday dinner and was pleasantly surprised !
I had lunch there back when it first opened and wasn't impressed and never been back until now.
I figured why give it a second chance.
I had the grass fed strip steak and it was leaner than any filet I've had.
The potato tart was delicious and the desert was awesome.
They make a pretty goon Manhattan as well.
We will definitely be back.
This is the same review I put on Yelp:
Really bad experience overall, which is a shame because we went for a Valentine's Day/anniversary dinner. My steak, the bone in ribeye, came out way underdone and had to be sent back. They gave me a brand new one (and comped me for it), but by the time it had returned the sides were cold and I'd lost most of my interest.
My wife ordered the trio of New York steaks; only one of them was good, and the other two were bland and tough. She didn't have the heart to complain after I'd already sent my steak back, but for $66 we expected much better.
The cornbread, Caesar salad, French onion soup, and twice baked potato pastry were all good, but the steaks left a ton to be desired.
Unless someone else is paying, I'd never come back to Urban Farmer.
Walked in at 7:30 for our reservation, no hostess or anyone in sight. After a couple minutes, someone attended to us and then took us to a table...which was not ready so we stood around at the table while it was being cleaned and set. Ordered the “crispy” pork belly for an appetizer. This dish was largely disappointing. Over the years, I’ve had some really good preparations of pork belly. It should basically melt in your mouth. This was certainly not crispy and seemed to not have been cooked long enough as it was tough and chewy. The apple tart that accompanied it was bland. For a $16 appetizer I’d expect it to be much better, or at least more than four bites of pork. Ordered the steak tasting plate and it was ok and was more or less to the temp we ordered it. None of the steaks really blew me away though. The fingerling potato tart was good, but it’s hard to screw up potatoes,cheese, and bacon. The Brussel sprouts were very under seasoned and bland. We also got the bone marrow side which I thought was ok but my wife didn’t care for the mustard on it or the extremely salty bread. Overall our experience did not live up to our expectations. We had heard some great things about this place but maybe it’s on the decline now and on the way out. It would be hard to recommend this place based on this experience, especially considering the cost of the meal.
My boyfriend and I have eaten here a number of times. Have spent easily over a thousand dollars here. We are lucky to have eaten around the world. We went to Urban on Valentine’s Day and we were sat by the kitchen. The restaurant was EMPTY. We asked to be seated in a booth and we were told you have to request one via phone. Since when? We were the only black couple there. It pretty much ruined our special day. We’ve eaten in London, Prague, Singapore - and they seated us by the kitchen in an empty resturant. Thanks.
This was a return visit for me, but a first time for my three companions. As usual, service was spot on. We were seated immediately, even though we were 15 minutes early for our table. Our server was very friendly and knowledgeable and made several excellent suggestions.
The cheese server entertained us with his stories about the cheeses available that night and provided tastings as requested to be sure that we would enjoy all that we ordered. Entrees included duck, fish and beef and all were perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. The roasted brussel sprouts and cauliflower were sweet, crunchy and fine accompaniments for all.
We are all local Clevelanders and my dinner companions agreed that Urban Farmer is definitely on their "do over" lists. They are anxious to return and try other menu items.
This restaurant was just horrible in all aspects. We sat down, received no attention from the waitress and water etc took awhile (8-10 minutes). We ordered a salad, entree, and sides. The salad took 38 minutes from restaurant arrival for a simple Caesar salad. I ordered wagyu New York strip medium and my girlfriend ordered a bone in aged steak medium rare. The first wagyu was entirely raw, so I had to wait 15 min; then the second one was over cooked and was awful. I’ve had wagyu beef 15 times in my life- this was not wagyu. It wasn’t even a mediocre quality steak. The bone in aged strip was good at first until we got to the second half which was raw. The alleged “steak” restaurant was 3/3 cooking the meat terribly. The quality of the meat was also below par. I explained this to the manager and she comped one steak. The bill was $135 so I left $140 cash on the table and walked out. This was the first time in 29 years on this earth I’ve essentially not tipped. I go out to eat an average of 3-4 times a week and the quality of this experience for the cost was so out of touch with reality. I would 100% recommend that nobody ever attend this place and it should be closed down.
Love Urban Farmer, It is nice to know where the steaks come from and how they were raised. It's nice that they offer different ways the steaks were raised for different people. First time I went I got a grass fed steak, this time I got the Piedmontese (grain fed). Both were delish but I prefer the Grain. Our server suggested a potato side - fingerlings roasted with mashed and cheese and bacon. It was wonderful.. brussel sprouts were good too!
Went for breakfast, nowhere to park no signs didn’t know it was associated to the hotel next door. Who would know signs would help. Hostess was cold as ice and less than customer centric. On the bright side, service was great and foos was amazing but grossly overpriced. Lose the ice princess at the front door, put some signage up and lower your prices and you’ll have a first class place.
I wanted to take my fiancé out for a special birthday dinner and this did not disappoint! We were so impressed by the service by the entire staff! Our server (Emily) was also the best. Super knowledgeable and gave excellent recommendations. Easily the best meal I’ve had in a year.
So, I did a tasting menu of 3 different types of steak, 6oz each. $66.00. I thought the price was fair for the serving, however I found all the steaks to taste the same and each lacked basic salt and pepper seasoning, and of course salt and pepper is not on the table because they feel they prepare to perfection and would not be needed. Compared to other steak houses in Cleveland, this would be my last choice, simply based on lack of flavor.
Thought I would try something new for a change.
Pros: Farm fresh concept, setting felt relaxed and spread out. Food was good and cooked to proper temperature.
Cons: No acknowledgement of the special occasion “My Birthday” which was clearly noted on the reservation. The wait staff were less than informative and seemed like they rather be somewhere else despite the place being half empty on New Year’s Eve. Although the setting was spacious and relaxed it still had feel of an unfinished lower level parking garage. The plates weren’t complementary to the food leaving a less than desired presentation.
Summary: This place fails to even come close to it’s peers. Attention to detail, service, and execution are expected in this price point.($275.00 for two people)The food was good not excellent the service was average to below average even with a half empty restaurant. Steer clear of most certain disappointment.
Very pricey but great ambiance. The ribeye was cooked to perfection and seasoned just right- no sauce needed! The prawns were not my favorite- they had a burnt taste that was probably trying for char-grilled but just tasted burned. The potato dish recommended by our waitress that was served in a cast iron pan was amazing!
Very expensive and the food is average. Nice location and ambiance. Bar drinks are very good. I would assume most clientele are travelers staying at the hotel and have no where else to go, if you are local skip the urban farmer, better food and prices can be found elsewhere in downtown Cleveland
Wow! One of Cleveland’s best! I am a serious foodie and I was blown away. The French onion soup with brisket in the bottoms was incredible and a meal to itself as was the house salad, which had the most amazing light vinaigrette. The mains? Fantastic. Had the Wagyu strip and if you can handle it please order it rare. Melted in my mouth. The twice baked potatoes were unlike any I had before . The cornbread out of a can was light and incredible as were the yeast rolls. Not one thing that didn’t exceed expectations. I would say the best restaurant I have been to in Cleveland, and that’s up against some great competitors.
