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.

Always a great dining experience here - great service, ambiance, steaks cooked perfectly and the best selection of sides. Love the potato tart topped qith bacon and sour cream, the creamed spinach far exceeds that of other steakhouses and their mushrooms with carmelized onions are so fresh and flavorful. Overall always a wonderful dining experience.

Server was knowledgeable, efficient, and helpful in assisting us with menu choices. The food was delicious and menu varied. We had one vegan diner and one with some food allergies, and both had many choices available. Excellent experience, highly recommend!

The space was very comfortable and not too stuffy. The food was amazing with an emphasis on eating local. The service was appropriate for the setting without being too pushy. Overall, a great night out to celebrate my fiancé's birthday. We can't wait to go back.

Excellent meal and nice ambiance. The shrimp appetizer and corn muffins are great. My wife and I both had prime steak which was cooked to perfection. You must try the homemade ice cream for dessert- (vanilla and toffee chip) some of the best we’ve ever eaten!

One of the best meals I have had in years. From the cheese boards to the 1855 18 oz. ribeye and then the strawberry topped cheesecake, it was fantastic. Definitely bring your wallet as it is pricey but worth taking a shot.

The best way to describe this was all icing and no cake. Everything was over priced for what you actually got and the service was underwhelming.

Hand crafted cocktails were tasty, but way overpriced! $14? Come on! Need more non red-meat options on the menu. Our salads were yummy. The steak part of the steak frites was sub par. Meat was tasteless even when ordered medium rare. Need some other lower price items on the menu. Either $25 for steak frites or $65+ for prime choices.

Just a fantastic experience. My wife and I went for our 2 year wedding anniversary. We had been for brunch many times but this was our first dinner excursion. Shortly after being seated, a manager brought us glasses of champagne and his congratulations. The waiter was attentive and thorough. The cheesemonger was knowledgeable and passionate. The food was fantastic. Keep in mind this is not a cheap outing, but you don’t feel like you overpaid. Another note - this is a large dining area and the tables are well-spaced. My wife and I are both generally quiet people and often when we eat out in Philly conversation is off the table due to the noise level. We have never had issues at Urban Farmer.

We all loved the concept of the Urban Farmer restaurant with organic and healthy options for a steak dinner. But for the first time ever making a reservation through open table resulted in the worst table in the place- we would have seriously been better off walking in. We were seated facing a wall next to the server station. While numerous other tables in more scenic and less noisy areas remained empty throughout our 2.5 hour dinner.
We were seated next to a couple and their young child who was playing video games on an iPad at a deafening volume. Even the server had trouble hearing yet she did nothing to rectify the situation. The noise from the server station also added to the unpleasant atmosphere.
The saving grace was the food. While one of our steaks needed to be sent back because it was overcooked it was quickly replaced with the requested temperature and was delicious. The bread and the sides, especially the mac & cheese were exceptional as well. The wine options were limited and overpriced and dessert -Baked Alaska was average. Overall the meals ranged about $75 a person with decent size portions for an a la carte meal.
The consensus of our party was that the food, while excellent, could not make up for the unpleasant atmosphere, noise and service on an obviously slow night. We all agreed that for the price there’s got to be a quality steak with better ambience and service somewhere in Philadelphia, but unfortunately it’s not at the Urban Farmer- great concept, poorly executed.

The service and food were phenomenal. This was our first time at the restaurant. The reviews were always good but we wanted to see for ourselves. Try the charcuterie tray and potato leek soup. There wasnt anything that we didn't love. Highly recommend it.

Booked on Open Table so restaurant knew ahead of time it was for a Birthday (95th). As soon as we were seated a Birthday card was given to our guest of honor....well received!! Our waiters (Karl & ?) are to be commended for their excellent service and also, at the end of the meal, giving 2 complimentary desserts. The 3 of us enjoyed our dinner but "Your not at the 4 Seasons
anymore" Very crowded restaurant...the ladies had difficulty walking between tables, chairs, sofa's with a cane and a walker. The bathrooms that were built in the lobby only had 2 stalls...a very long wait. We'll leave this for the under 50's crowd but do thank those that served us.

The valet parking issue is tricky. Call ahead to find out exactly where you have to drop off your car. Otherwise the place is a wonder. Food on point?👌 Customer service and satisfaction? 👍🏾 Cleanliness?✅ Wine choices? Superb and please try the Daou! Ask for Jack when you go and you’ll be in good hands for sure. Now more details... we skipped apps because we had kids with and didn’t want to miss dessert if we had time. I chose the kids steak entree to split between them because the portions here are not for the meek and my kids don’t eat a lot of meat. We asked for a side of the charr d asparagus without all the extras they listed and got that with no problems. Kids tore through the steak and were just ok about the subbed Caesar salad because they didn’t love the dressing. For my entree I selected the pork chop. Big mistake. This was not a womanly portion of meat at all! My husband got a New York strip that was amazing (I poached half) and we shared an order of the twice baked fingerling tart and the roasted carrots and turnips. He ate most of my pork, I thought it was a little dry and could’ve done well with less time on the grill or in the oven. All the veggies were done al dente perfecto and our drink before dinner??!!!!! The bartender made an Old Fashioned so good even I like its me my Jack Daniels whiskey sour was just as perfect a drink as one could ask for.
