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.

Food was awesome! Byron our waiter excellent. When we ask for recommendations about the food & drinks he was on point. This was my 2nd visit. My 1st time was for lunch I had the Fish & Chips. It was delicious. One of my favorite restaurants

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.

As always, food was outstanding. The restaurant tends to be noisy because it is open to the bar area. The wait staff was outstanding and very helpful. Will definitely be back.

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.

Food was ok, warm but not hot. Server was nice, but not around when needed. Ambience was nice & the value was ok but there’s a lot of competition out there so not sure if I’d give it another try.

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.

Generally, Urban Farmer is a fabulous restaurant. However, compared to other well know steak houses in Philadelphia, it is sub par. What sets makes the restaurant less appealing is the ambiance. Other steak houses have a more fancy higher end feeling. The food and service is excellent though. Compared to the others, I'm not sure the value (price of the food and drinks) is as good. For the money, I would probably choose somewhere else (e.g., Del Frisco's)

It was a fun brunch but a little expensive. Everything is a la Carte. For two of us, with coffee our main platter and 2 sides was $55! The food was good but the ambiance is what was most impressive.

Very good food, but not exceptional. Fresh and farm to table ingredients are nicely prepared and presented. The steak selections are pretty varied with lots of good options: but everything is very pricey. Sides are extra as well. This restaurant likely caters to the (five star) hotel guests staying there and to business people looking to impress clients or who are traveling on a hefty business account… If that fits you, this is an excellent choice for a wonderful meal… If not, there are better options in the neighborhood...

UF appears to be maintaining its standards. I had another great client attended meal, service was efficient and our beet salad, with salmon added was an excellent choice on such a HOT day.

We had an outstanding breakfast at Urban Farmer. Our server was wonderful and gladly accommodated all of our requests. This was breakfast so I can’t comment on their lunch and dinner menus. We are out-of-towners but on our next visit to Philadelphia, we will definitely go for dinner.

We had an OUTSTANDING brunch at Urban Farmer!
The steak frites and vegetable frittata were absolutely delicious as were the Bloody Mary’s from the “do it yourself “ cart -a green Bloody Mary truly unique and delicious!!! The food was only outmatched by the spectacular service- The manager Sandra and servers Alisha and Scott were attentive, warm and exceptional!
Loved the outdoor patio too!!!

No fault of server or kitchen but unfortunately 4th of July was very under staffed for the amount of folks there. We waited over an hour for our food and had to get it wrapped up so we wouldn’t miss the fireworks. Again staff was friendly even though everyone was stressed. We continue to come due to how great the food is and ambience.
