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.

This was our first time at Urban Farmer and our waitress was extremely helpful in explaining what they do and the where the food comes from. She made our experience very pleasant as she was very attentive the entire night as was the entire wait staff. The food was excellent. I would definitely recommend going to Urban Farmer

Atmosphere, service and most importantly food were amazing. The dry aged steak was one of the best I've ever had. The craft cocktails are spot on as well.

Food was delicious as always. Our server was delightful. However, it did take a long time to get our food and we didn't order anything that should have taken very long to prep. Hoping this was just a one time thing, as I do enjoy coming here. Thank you.

Felt like wait staff was rushing us through our meal. Asked multiple times if we were finished despite a half full plate. Given restaurant wasn’t busy surprised at how much someone asked if we were finished.

Drew offered recommendations, some of which we followed, and was attentive to every request.
All of the dishes were excellent.
We were happy that we could hear one another talk at the table.

Overall, the food was good except for one important thing: I ordered Duck but was served a Steak! It was too late in the evening to send the food back and get what I had actually ordered.

This is the 2nd time we have been here for brunch, and it was excellent both times. The 1st time we had 10 people and everyone was very happy with their food. Today we had 4 people and everyone liked their food again. The menu has a lot of choices and one of our favs is the lobster avocado Benedict.

While the food was good, it didn’t blow us away. And we were quite disappointed with the salads. Look amazing, but very little flavor on both the Field Greens salad and Caesar salad. Wasn’t crazy crazy busy but service was extremely slow. Had dirty dishes in front of us for quite a bit before they were removed, and we are not at all fast eaters. Glad to experience it but not rushing to go back.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time there. The food and the drinks were great. The atmosphere was warm and relaxing. It was my boyfriend's birthday and although we didn't order dessert (stomachs were full) they brought up a scoop of ice cream with a candle for him - very nice touch. BTW, some of the best vanilla ice cream I have ever had. Everyone that work their was very friendly and professional. The only negative is that we saw a bartender not mix up enough of a cocktail to fill four glasses and decided to add extra ice to make up the difference - not very classy.

Steaks were outstanding done to perfection. The sides were equally delicious. Ambiance is casual chic and not like your usual stuffy steak place. Our waiter was outstanding, attentive but not intrusive. His recommendations were spot on. Drinks were excellent too. We hope to be back soon

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.
