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.

Waiter very attentive and friendly. Food was fabulous. We all had something different. Enjoyed a taste of each. Lots of brunch choices. You can’t go wrong.

We really enjoy that even when the restaurant is full it isn't super loud in there so we can still talk. Also, the steaks melted in our mouths and everything was delicious.

Stayed at the Logan and was presently surprised with this hidden gem. Don't leave Philly without having one of the best brunches in town by Farmers!

Very nice but limited menu. Service was not very attentive. Ordered a bottle of wine & it was never chilled or our glasses refilled. I would not go back there are better steakhouses to visit.

Had an early dinner at about 5 o’clock, drinks at the bar slightly earlier than that. The drinks were great and the bartender very friendly.
For appetizers I had the fagras and my wife had the shrimp.
I had the 8 ounce filet and my wife had the scallops.
We both had a glass of wine.
The food:
The fagras was amazing, cooked perfectly and my wife’s shrimp were huge and delicious.
The entrees - I had the steak cooked to medium rare, It was a beautiful file however it was overcooked slightly and more towards a medium and dry I was very disappointed
My wife’s scallops were cooked to perfection and delicious.
We had Wild mushrooms and were brought creamed spinach accidentally. This was a lucky break because the spinach was fantastic.
We were in a rush and skip dessert unfortunately. Altogether I thought the food was good, not over the top. This is a place that puts steak as its focus, and it was the weakest part of the meal. I would have to think that it was a fluke.
Service
Service was OK at best, when we were finished with our appetizer and wanted to keep the bread the server took away our bread plates and left the bread. The cornbread was wonderful by the way.
Our waiter would congregate at the back of the room and chitchat with the other servers she was a little hard to reach sometimes. She would often stop by a few tables away from us to discuss mommy problems with a single mother and her young child who would horse around on the raised table tops. Not a huge deal but we kind of felt like we were in a diner more than a better restaurant.
All in all I would say I might come back but at a much later dinner time when the JV staff is not on duty.

Excellent brunch food, many things to choose from. I had Eggs Benedict with avocado and shaved ham... AMAZING! Other had biscuits and gravy, waffles, frittatas etc, no one was disappointed. One meal was forgotten and a little delayed but besides that service was good. Great atmosphere. We will return for steak next time and I would recommend!

This place was great. My boyfriend and I went in a nice shirt, nothing too fancy. The places vibe was somewhat hipster with nice lighting. It was my boyfriends birthday and the restaurant gave him a card! I would totally recommend to everyone!

We were 3 colleagues, and we each loved our choice. For the first time, I tried the cauliflower steak platter. It was sensational, flavored just right! And, while I feel satisfied and full, I am not bloated. My colleagues ordered salads, one had salmon on his salad the other had chicken on her salad. They salads practically crackled with freshness.

Next time, I’ll come when I can enjoy some wine with my lunch!

At a recent biz lunch, we dined on shrimp and grits (tasty), squash soup (tasty) and multiple salads with shrimp and chicken. Everything was delicious and the food presentation was done well. I love the presentation with the farmer chop salad (my fav). Our server was terrific! All in all, a lovely meal/visit.

I have to say I am disappointed with Urban Farmer. The hostess was incredibly rude - she needs to be removed from the front. We were seated in a very narrow, corner area and when I asked to be moved to one of the open tables the hostess said there was no availability and left. There is also no coat check with makes it difficult to sit with your winter coats in a small corner table.

Service was equally disappointing. My steak was 2 grades over cooked and our waitress never came back to ask about drinks. Additionally it was my husbands birthday and I had given all sorts of information about it during my confirmation call and nothing happened when we showed up.

We will not be returning.

Our luncheon selections were very good - burger, squash soup, chop salad. We sat on the fringe of the restaurant, close to the hotel area which was a little odd. It was a little disconnected to the restaurant itself and the service was less attentive than usual.

We stayed at the Logan and chose Urban Farmer for dinner. There’s a reason it’s consistently rated among the best restaurants in Philly. We got a cowboy ribeye (which the chef came and carved tableside) that was maybe the best steak we’ve ever eaten. The wine on special was fantastic, the sides were brilliant, and the server made us feel like the only couple in the restaurant. We felt doted on from the moment we walked in, and it absolutely elevated our evening. I can’t wait to go back.

It was time to celebrate a birthday. Server was not attentive. Basically, left the juice at the end of the table for my daughter. Did not refill our water. Did not ask if we wanted any dessert. Bruch was mediocre. Sabrina across on Hamilton would have been a better choice for quality of food.

First ribeye came out well done when ordered medium. They prepared another one that come out rare. Took it back to prepare again but by that time my guests were all finished. They did take my meal off and did the right thing. Hesitant to stop by again though

Brunch was delicious as always but service was disappointing compared to the usual. Took a while to get menus, never refilled my coffee and forgot to get friend's coffee. Usually service is as on point as the food, so we'll just chalk this up to a bad day.

Asked for a quiet table - was seated in the middle of the room next to the bus boy station and on the busiest main path - do they even read the OT notes. Then the busboy used high level bombing to fill our water spilling on the table every time until we gabe up and stopped him. He even spilled on my GF and didn't seem to notice.

The food was 50/50. She has salmon which she liked a grewat deal. I had chicken which was under cooked deapita asking for ot to be cooked through. I know salmon and chicken at a steak house but we were staying at the hotel and didnt want to go out. Next time we will.

Would never have believed that the steaks could be better than any I have had. Of all the chains (e.g. Ruth Chris, Del Frisco, Morton's , Abe + Louie's, Capital Grille, The Palm, Ocean Prime, Maestro's), the steaks at UF were superior. No gristle, extremely flavorful and perfectly cooked. So sad they don't have a location in Boston.

Service was a bit slow (or at a farmer’s pace) and we were seated at a quirky table for two. If my girlfriend and I were each seven feet tall then the table would have been fine but for 99% of the public, the seats are too low and the table too high. Besides the funky furniture of our dining experience, the food was great. Started with the cheese board - good cheeses but was hoping for a more generous portion. Tried the sampler and was happy with my choice: 1855 was the best, filet was second best, and the Joyce Farm grass fed was third but still very good. My girlfriend got the filet that doesn’t come with the sampler (I think it’s the grain finished one) and loved it. Twice baked potatoes were best part - per the advice of one of the waiters, make sure you eat the delicious crust even if you have to fight with the skillet. Definitely worth a visit and is a good change of pace from the other steakhouses in Philly.
