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.

Wagyu New York strip was phenomenal. Mushrooms also very good. Staff was very helpful, educated and friendly. Overall great experience but not for a budget.

I would normally recommend urban farmer. I dine there several times per year, usually for lunch. On our last visit the service was really poor. We waited 30 mins after being seated without being visited by our waiter. Once we ordered, the meal prep was also slow. One of our party had to take their lunch to-go.

The fresh ingredients really make all the difference and elevate a seemingly normal meal to fine dining quality. I loved every bit of food I tried and the service was impeccable. I order the Striped Bass and had a Petraske’s Sour and they were both delicious. I can’t wait to visit again!

We had a wonderful experience all around. We had a very knowledgeable staff member help us select a wine, which was delightful. My friend and I split a cheese board, and each of us got a 6oz Filet. Our server was helpful in selecting a cut that we both enjoyed, and the truffle butter addition was decadent and so complimentary to the steak. We shared potato purée and French fries, but couldn’t finish either after such a delicious and filling meal. Thank you Urban Farmer! We will be back.

We ate early, so it was fairly quiet. The service is always fantastic as is the food. Ribeye is awesome.
Loved the sides. Mac, spinach. We got a crab cocktail instead of shrimp. Delicious. Will definitely return

Fantastic meal! Service staff was excellent, from the bartender to our waiter, who made great recommendations regarding the menu. As a gluten-free diner, I appreciate their attention to detail and did not feel like I was receiving less of a culinary experience because of my dietary limitations. Champagne to celebrate our anniversary was a nice plus as well!

Slow service, not worth the price, server was inattentive and I had to ask to be watered 3 times, two people sat at a four top and they never removed the other place settings...
Server may have been busy but it was slow only a few other tables and management could have helped if that was the case. The price on the menu is more than just the price of the steak it should reflect the entire experience your paying for and over all not impressed, could get an equal quality steak many other places with better service, if I’m paying 60$ for just a steak I should be wowed...

New Year’s Eve dinner was excellent here. Always great food and stellar drink menu make this a great place.
Everything was outstanding - I can’t pick an amazing item because it was all that good.
Just try this place!!

Casual decor and servers. Recipes may vary from traditional for certain dishes, but are generally very good. Some could be better: for example, hamburger served on "home made english muffin" -- muffin was not solid enough to hold burger as sandwich...fell apart. Duck was good, but "medium rare" is a bit rare. The caramel sundae, Blondie dessert is super.

Enjoyed breakfast, lunch dinner. Good bar and bar servers.

Service was not at the level expected for this price point. Glasses and plates not cleared promptly. Drinks removed before finished. Boxed food was combined at the table using my knife to stab the steak and combine plates. Seriously shocking.

I don’t rate easy but this restaurant was great. I am a flight attendant and I was on duty on Christmas Day so I arranged to have Christmas dinner with my family in the evening.
I was finished with work earlier so we asked if we can have dinner about one hour earlier and they accommodated no problem.
The table was perfect for my family size of five the waitress was friendly without being overbearing she was also very knowledgeable. The food arrived timely even though our steak needed 1/2 hour to cook - we ordered the tomahawk steak which was carved table side by a knowledgeable chef and cooked to perfection.
The sides were perfect we had the cream spinach the mashed potatoes and the mac & cheese.
My youngest daughter order a child steak and she was delighted to see it served on Two small wood skewers.
Memorable Christmas Dinner even though it was not at home this year it was still very special.
Well done.

Overall this restaurant exceeded any expectations!! After one of our steaks came to the table a little undercooked, they immediately took care of it and covered our dessert. My steak was amazing, Brioche Mac and cheese was to-die-for and candies carrots were phenomenal! Headed back again soon!!

Christmas dinner

Food and service was exceptionally good but the restaurant is in a hotel and acts as a hotel bar which diminished the ambience making the experience less than enjoyable than I had hoped.

Christmas breakfast/brunch was amazingly delicious. Had the Lobster Benedict & Crab Omelette with Chicken apple sausage on the side which is a must try, made in house by their butcher on site. Was here before for National Hot Chocolate day & I have not been disappointed. Will definitely make more visits here, it is so worth it to us.

I had Xmas Eve dinner at Urban Farmer. There was a nice energy to the restaurant, with most of the tables being occupied. I was hesitant to book here because I didn't think that would be the case, since Urban Farmer is often forgotten when discussing the top local steakhouses. I had the Romaine Caesar, shared Sauteed Mushrooms + Mac & Cheese, and had the 14oz. grain finished NY Strip. All were fantastic. Logan Square has quietly attracted a nice collection of restaurants.
