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.

What a tremendous experience. The wait staff went absolutely out of their way to help us celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. The food was impeccable and the atmosphere was perfect. Let them know you’re celebrating a special occasion and they will take very good care of you.

The service and food were excellent. The service was very personable, but there needs to be improvement in the service coordination, as our beverages and food were inconsistently off and not delivered until we reminded the server.

Picked the Urban Farmer for Sunday brunch with an old friend. Food was outstanding. I highly recommend the House made English muffin and chicken cherry sausage. Prices were reasonable for a weekend brunch in the city.

We had a great time at Urban Farmer! Melissa was our server and she was amazing. We were celebrating my sister’s birthday and it was the perfect start to a great birthday celebration. The atmosphere was so fun, and the food was to die for! They even had a card on the table to wish my sister a happy birthday! This whole place is the definition of great hospitality!

Food and service at Urban Farmer were phenomenal. Their house bread among the best I’ve had. I had he 7x wagyu ribeye and it was very good, though not much better than a dry aged prime cut so the I didn’t see the value on the price. Still a great cut. My wife’s steak was over cooked and the staff quickly fired a new one for her, and had it out within 5 minutes. Great customer service. Overall, very happy with my experience here.

The Easter Brunch ($65/pp plus drinks) was a big letdown! The buffet menu items all sounded good when we booked but the execution by the chef was poor. Liege waffles were small and over cooked. Having lived in Belgium and experienced every possible quality level of liege-style waffle, I can definitively say theirs were crap. Couldn’t even cut them with a butter knife or fork. The only way to soften their liege-style hockey pucks was to add copious juice from the fresh strawberries near by. I was told there was a cherry marmalade to use with the waffle but it was always “being refilled”. The sausage frittata was ok; I’m not a big fan of baked egg pies so being “ok” is a complement, I guess. The roasted potatoes were boring. The monkey bread was difficult to serve from the tiny oval dish using the forked tongs provided; this resulted in the caramel sweet stuff not coming out from bottom of the pan. Pieces of the crusty bread is all that would come out. If they would have put a serving spoon next to the dish maybe the caramel could have been scooped out and drizzled over the bread. I asked one of the floor staff for a serving spoon but he disappeared and never came back. The carving station had prime rib and lamb. The lamb was dry but the prime rib was good. Their omelette station was typically average. The desserts were adequate for a brunch; however, for people with nut allergies it would have been very disappointing. One of our party has a tree nut allergy and couldn’t eat most their desserts or panna cotta because everything had nuts either in the dish or as a garnish that couldn’t be easily removed. We asked a server for nut free options but he told us that what was out was all they had to offer. Our waitress did scrounge up some plain vanilla panna cotta which was a nice gesture. The charcuterie table had 2-3 frozen cheeses, crispy bagel thins and 2 salamis; the danish was 3 (cheese, chocolate or plain). I expected so much more. Big letdown; wouldn’t go back.

Great food because everything is fresh made onsite and they have a great variety of food. The place is very nice inside and friendly. Only downside is that it is a little pricey but as the saying goes “you get what you pay for “

Staff had good background on food being served -- source, process, etc. for farm to table. Staff pleasant and accommodating. Ambiance comfortable not stuffy. Tenderloin was very good from Pennsylvania farm. Different experience for steak in a farm to table environment. Should not compare to other major steakhouses. Overall enjoyable.

First, our oversized wing backed chairs at our table were ridiculous and I sunk in so low I felt I needed a booster seat. They brought an amuse buche after we had already had our first course, right as they were bringing out our entrees, which meant the server was clueless and it beside the point by then. My scallops were too salty and briny and my dining partner's root veg pot pie that accompanied the chicken was nothing but mushy dough with scarcely a trace of root vegetables inside, which could have been delicious, if done properly. Will not return for dinner. Maybe happy hour, although our wine pours were small.

I will say that I had lunch there the prior day with a group and the cauliflower steak over lentils was excellent, but my dinner experience was rookie-ville and I was very unimpressed.

Outstanding experience! The wagu ribeye is by far the best steak I’ve ever eaten. Very cool and relaxed atmosphere and fantastic cocktails (I’m a big whiskey drinker and was very satisfied). Can’t speak highly enough of our server Jake too, he was incredibly knowledgeable and provided fantastic service. We’ll be back!

Hip scene with clientele that ranged from late 20s to 70s. Quiet enough not to have to raise your voice to be heard, which I prefer,
The food was good but not great; got the steak sampler + wagyu. Wagyu was dry (?!) but the 21 day dry aged portion was perfect. The other two were unremarkable. Sides of Mushrooms (bland), pureed potatoes (over salted) & popcorn grits w/ fried egg (absolutely the best). The cornbread that comes to the table is out of sight. The wines were overpriced but they have a decent selection. By far the high point of the meal was our service, which was great (Thanks Devon!)
All in all though, for the price point, I vastly prefer Barclay Prime.

Excellent choice of steaks . Many kinds and sizes are available. The smallest is 8 ounces. I had o problem finishing, nor did my hubby. I think it was the best steak we have ever had! All sides are ala carte and we had potatoes and creamed spinach. The sides were equally as delicious! Expensive dinner but totally worth the price. We would gladly go again!

Booked table for 4, were 5 in the end due to surprise guest - no problem at all, very flexible staff although basically fully booked. Good choice of wines & meat, sides were excellent, service was over the top (from welcome desk to waiters all very friendly, helpful and always around).

We all had the full steak taster plate (4 x 6oz including wagyu), two of our party ordered steaks medium-rare, all others medium. What we all got was medium-well done. Taste was still ok but it was really very disappointing for a 100$ plate to not get your steaks as ordered in a restaurant that focuses on steaks.

Delicious sides, great wine & excellent service saved the day.

So:

Ambience : 5 stars
Service : 6 stars
Sides 5 stars
Wine: 5 stars
Steaks: 2 stars

Overall (as steaks are most important - sorry) : 3 stars

Would go again but then order one large piece instead of the taster.

We have dined at the Urban Farmer in Portland, OR (the mothership restaurant). We had not been to the Philadelphia location, but they translated it very well. We thoroughly enjoyed our excellent meal. I would not have expected to find bison tenderloin on an Eastern menu, but there it was and the meal was excellent. The staff did a great job of recognizing our anniversary with a very nice table, a card, and two glasses of champagne.

We stayed at the Logan for a getaway and ate at Urban Farmer for a number of meals including breakfast, lunch, and dinner. We were amazed at the variety, excellent presentations, service, and delicious food. All seems to support the claim m of being fresh and locally sourced. Our compliments to the chef and staff. Great job. And I wish I could remember the names of our servers but they were consistently pleasant and attentive. Again, great job done by all.
