Steakhouse
Urban Farmer’s menu emphasizes the pride of locally sourced ingredients and authentic, straightforward preparations. Butcher’s cuts of heritage-bred beef takes the spotlight, with grass-fed, grain-finished and corn-fed varieties available, while our poultry and seafood are also thoughtfully-selected.

Our rustic pantry is stocked with house-made, preserved and pickled local produce which offers a homespun counterpoint to the refined ambiance. Our chefs build personal relationships with local farms, ranches and fisheries, bringing a taste of their dedication to the table and reaffirming the direct connection between land and plate. Beverage offerings reflect the variety of neighboring breweries, cocktails made with local craft spirits and a carefully curated wine program to complement the region.

WAAAAAY overpriced for the value delivered. Service was mediocre, the place seems like a barn, given how wide open and relatively empty is was, the food, while not bad, was nowhere near the level of what I expected given the prices. Wine list is beyond the usual markup, with many "average" bottles at 4x list price. Shared appetizer, two steaks, one cocktail, bottle of mid level wine, two sides, no desert: $350.

In-spite of having a reservation, the front-of-house staff was unpleasant seemed put out that we were dining with them. At $400 for a dinner for 4, I expect better service than to be greeted by "you planning to eat?" at the front door.

Service by Sarah was magnificent! Always checking, water constantly filled, drinks poured, food served perfectly correct temp and presentation, all wait staff extremely attentive to detail. Ambiencve so incredibly pleasant. Steak was "okay" nothing sensational had the 1855 Strip. Not a lot of flavor. Cheese presentation and selection awesome. Charcuterie board was delicious! Seafood tower incredible! Could not eat it all!!

We chose this steakhouse based on its proximity to The Franklin Institute, and were very pleased. The menu's offerings were close to what you might expect from a traditional steakhouse, but elevated. I enjoyed a 24 oz Ribeye with foie gras butter that was sensational. I was also pleased with he wine list and selection of cocktails. While a perfect venue for a special occasion, the atmosphere was modern and staff was very helpful and friendly.

The food was really good, once we got it. An hour and fifteen minutes of waiting with bone dry glasses for three sandwiches. We were sat at 1:15, so after the lunch rush. Our food arrived at 2;40. The food was good, we were just completely ignored for over an hour after ordering.

Excellent service, with great teamwork among the employees to ensure that each guest feels special. The meat is excellent, and cooked the way you order it. The appetizers are delicious - we liked the caesar salad and the mussels. They even give you a package of seeds with the check!

We always enjoy coming to urban farmer when we come from out of town to visit Philadelphia and its wonderful museums. Ever since urban farmer opened we have been patrons and it just gets better and better. The service is quick and attentive and the food is terrific. Ample & satisfactory wine list to accompany yourdelicious food. I’ll definitely come again.

Nice dinner with the family. We all 3 had steak. Service was on point. Great explanation of the menu. Nice wine list. Foie Gras was exceptional. 1 filet was wrong temperature twice. They comped the meal. Sides of creamed spinach and mashed potato were delicious. Would definitely go back

We usually love Urban Farmer but the vegetable frittata was horrible. Parsnips and sweet potatoes and eggs do not mix well and it just wasn’t good at all.

Urban Farmer is special! Whether a date night, friends night, or just a great night out – Urban Farmer is well worth it. Great environment. Great location. They even serve a top-notch breakfast/brunch menu as well.

I don’t love the name of this place so I was judging before I arrived. Happy to say I was pleasantly surprised the food is rich and heavy but well prepared and everything we had was delicious. We did shrimp app, sea bass, scallops, mushrooms and potato bacon side. The butterscotch desert was amazing. Loved our big table and chairs ultra comfortable. Good service too! The only negatives were the $6 cappuccino, that’s an extraordinarily excessive price and the milk was not foamed that well. The wine list is very boring too all big American wines, but to be expected for a steakhouse in a hotel and clearly I’m kinda snobby.

We ate at this Urban Farmer last year for our wedding anniversary/ very good.
We joined our daughter for this year’s celebration at the same restaurant. Unfortunately, our dinner was disappointing. The shrimp cocktail/ 3 shrimp on a pickled onion cocktail sauce. The shrimp was firm and tasty. Our caesar salad was doused in dressing. So much so that the waitress asked us if we asked for extra dressing! Huh? You took our order.
The biggest let down was our steaks. My grain fed 8 Oz filet mignon was dry, dry dry. My husband’s rib eye was 40% inedible. Too “grizzly.” My daughter’s fish dish, a special that night was fair.
2 glasses wine, one beer, tab came to $312.00 plus tip. Too expensive for a mediocre steak dinner.

We dined here for dinner and breakfast the next morning when we stayed at the Hilton Logan.
It's a farm to table restaurant with a limited, but creative and amazing menu. Our server, Drew (Andrew) was attentive and shared helpful knowledge about each entree. Everything was delicious. The included cornbread made in a can was exceptional!
Even the sides and starters are huge, so be careful how much you order.
The decor is interesting, very edgy and modern. We decided it was more a conversation starter than an attraction.
I would give it 5 stars, but for the noise from the active bar scene which drifts over into the dining area.

Weird service. Two out of three of us seated and the servers came three times to take our order within 5 minutes of being seated, even after we explained that one guest was in the restroom.

Best cornbread ever. It’s made in a tin can and tastes like a graham crackery heaven. The steak was delicious and so were the twice baked potatoes.

What a fantastic find! The Devore is great, the food, as expected, lives up to hype. I love the option of really customizing your meal with ample choice of butters, toppings, and sides. The noise level was surprisingly low (especially for a Thursday night), the tables were spaced plenty far apart. I can’t stand closely spaced tables, l like some breathing room from the adjacent parties. I can’t say enough about this place, I will happily recommended this place to anyone looking for a memorable date spot.

Nice experience at Urban Farmer. Waiter professional and informative. Prompt with drinks, food and answering questions. Service was very good. Seating in a booth is more comfortable than their chairs. The restaurant is expensive.
