Urban Farmer Portland Ratings and Reviews
Drinks which consisted of coffee and mimosas, took about 15 minutes to receive and if the place was packed then perhaps understandable; however the place was only semi-full.
Seeing as the drinks were not complex; I was a bit disappointed it took so long. The food was good; however the brunch is nothing special you can't get at an IHOP for less. Overall, the experience was meh.
This wasn't our first time here, and it won't be our last. The food was great and the service was amazing, the only negative was that they sat us next to two really small children, infants & toddlers. I understand that they have to eat too, and I'm not blaming Urban Farmer, but it really gets under my skin when I'm paying $100+ for dinner and have to listen fussy baby within arms reach.
First time at Urban Farmer. Good steakhouse menu, very good wine list. Quality of food was very good. The only miss was that our steaks were overcooked. When ordering, I asked the waiter if they tend to run on the well or rare side. He said they tended to run on the rare side, so I ordered medium. Unfortunately, I received medium-well. Not bad, but the steak could have been better prepared. Otherwise, a very nice dinner. I look forward to giving them another try
I usually write off hotel restaurants as being bad by nature, but this place slapped me upside the head. We googled "Best steak house in Portland" and on all the websites we looked at, this place had been on all of them and if not the top 2 definitely in the top 5. Once we got there we were taken back by the Atrium, and then into the restaurant which is nestled in the rear of the Atrium you pass through really nice spaces to sit and have cocktails. These spaces were all unique in styles which was very relaxing. The restaurant decor was very well done, loved the bench styles seating. The food was also very good, we ordered the New York steaks with foie gras on top, and the Oregon 1/2 chicken.... all done with very good flavor. I do believe that they need to up the quantity of the Foie Gras they give you, like most restaurants it's small, if you as a patron like it then you willing to pay for it, because obviously you know what the goin rate is for it, so up the cost $20 to $40 total and actually do a decent amount of it. All in all great place will definitely come back when I'm in Portland again. The only one notable down side is as an Irishman they didn't have Guinness on tap, but in bottle form which is a cardinal sin to us;)
What was once Portland's best overall steakhouse is... still quite good. Steaks are very high quality and accurately cooked. A bit over prepared these days ,though - less salt, please. Sides are tasty and the cornbread is still a highlight.
Overall, still a very good steakhouse with top flight service, but maybe not in the top tier anymore. They still could be, if they just trusted the meat and stopped oversalting it.
The ambiance was very nice with a large open ceiling courtyard as the location. The service was great and the food was good too. I ordered by steak medium and it was really almost raw, but I think that's standard for most steakhouses in the attempt to not over cook the meat. Overall it was a good dinner. The potato tart - thing was fantastic as a side.
I had asked my Chef instructor where I should go for breakfast and he recommended here. We got there and I fell in love immediately. The whole set up was incredible and so welcoming. It was calming and quiet and perfect for a Friday 7am breakfast date. Jim our server was outstanding and so kind. He talked with us and made us feel incredibly welcome and cared for. I will come back and I know I will love it then as well. This place is a hidden gem of Portland but it is perfect. Thank you for making our breakfast date so amazing and right. You guys were fantastic.
The atmosphere was fantastic and the staff was extremely attentive! The atrium setting makes it feel as if you're eating outside as it lets just the right amount of natural light without making it too bright. As evening falls, the mood gets relaxed and somewhat romantic. The food was second to none and the drinks are well crafted and stiff. Everyone on the staff was very friendly and very social with the clientele.
I love the space of the restaurant. I was however disappointed in the fact that my eggs were over poached and that my friends bread was served burnt. I was surprised that the chef or the server would have served over burnt bread. My friend ordered the crab omelet. The overall space is nice, especially for a hotel restaurant. They should me careful about the food. I think it was also overpriced based on the great restaurant options that we have in Portland, especially the local chefs in small boutique spaces.
I understand why they think that they can charge what they can since it's in the Nine's hotel and that many patrons are hotel guests which may not be familiar with other choices The concept is good and they should be diligent with ensuring that their food is brought out to perfection! It is after all a reflection of my city. As a Portland native I think this first impression for anyone visiting our fabulous city should be top notch
My fiance and mother-in-law brought me here for my birthday and it was fantastic as always! The service was great and we loved being seated in the pantry area. As always, the handcrafted cocktails were well thought out and prompted ordering a few.
The steak was phenomenal, I had the Waygu and my fiance had the steelhead, and my mother-in-law to be had the Forty-two day dry aged Painted Hills. We shared sides of mac and cheese, brussels sprouts, and the roasted sweet potatoes, which were all delicious. I went a step further and made sure to order the blue-cheese truffle butter and I cannot recommend it enough!
Thank you for always providing such a nice atmosphere, quality service, and unique approaches to cocktails and delicious meals.
The atmosphere was wonderful and we all enjoyed the quiet ambiance which is rare in today's trendy restaurant climate. Our food was exceptionally and beautifully served by attentive knowledgeable staff. we especially appreciated an environment where a table can have a quiet conversation without music blaring in our ears. It was a memorable evening.
The only caveat I might mention is, the restaurant could use some sineage both at street level and once you get off the elevators. Information posted at the street level elevators and upon arrival at the floor would be most helpful.
We went on Valentine's Day and it was my date and I's first time dining at Urban Farmer. The overall ambiance and space was very lovely - dimmed lighting and a high open ceiling that goes to the top of the hotel. Comfy couches to sit and wait at while they ready your table. Neat lighting and art/sculptures. The food was very good. Not the BEST I've ever had but no complaints. The service was wonderful and we felt very well taken care of. They didn't run out of anything on the menu which I greatly appreciated since it was prix fixe for the occasion.
I was excited to try this place out. We went for Valentine's day at 8pm. The hosts looked like they had been there too long and were complaining about a group at a table taking too long which I found unprofessional. As for the food, the steak was WAY overdone. The salmon was nice, the sides were nothing special. I'm glad I at least tried it, but will not be going back.
This reservation was on Valentines Day. As always, the service was spot-on. Our waitress was timely, funny, efficient...everything you hope for. Also, as always, I highly recommend the cheese service; it's a great opportunity to try something new and I've never been disappointed. Although I've eaten at Urban Farmer many times, this was my first experience with a prefix menu and I wasn't especially impressed. I just didn't care for the selections available. For a pre-set menu, it was largely uninspired. I'll definitely return but, if it's on a holiday, I will call to verify that the full menu is available.
Took my date here for Valentines Day and wasn't disappointed in the least. The service was on point the entire time, and the ambiance was high class intertwined with a relaxed vibe. Only criticism I have to offer is that the 42 day dry aged new York I had was slightly lacking in flavor surprisingly, however the rib eye my date ordered was perfectly seasoned and cooked. Every drink I had was also put together expertly, especially the Big Horse. Would without a doubt recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.
We were served corked wine, my wife's steak was overdone and mine was underdone.
Martini was among the worst I have had with too much vermouth (way too much).
Not a great experience.
Expensive and impressive menu but it didn't live up to it.
Waiter was great under the circumstances.
We've tried UrbanFarmer three times.
2nd, terrible. Never got food after 1.5 hours. They gave us a certificate.
3rd, one year later - food just BAD. Just take a torch to the butcher shop instead. Ribs, almost inedible. Tough. Over cooked. Cut too much fat/not trimmed well. Pork chop very rubbery. Very little flavor.
Side dishes no better.
This restaurant needs the entire memu reworked.
Service ok. Nothing special.
Too many other good options.
Won't go back.
This was my first visit to Urban Farmer. We came for brunch. The food quality was excellent and service was reasonably good. Prices are typical for upscale hotel restaurants. Although the restaurant is in an atrium area, sounds were muffled and we were easily able to converse. I would definitely consider returning.
This was probably my 5th or 6th time eating at urban farmer going back to around 2010. The last time i ate there was May, 2015. The butternut squash soup was very disappointing to me and my guest. The soup was bland and a far cry from when i ate it in May, 2015. The salmon i ate the previous night was very good. Another disappointment regards the menu itself. Seems the menu has only had minimal, if any, changes for as long as i've eaten there (roughly 2010).
We have eaten breakfast and lunch many times at Urban Farmer and have found it to serve good food in a upscale but comfortable setting. On this visit our server was not attentive, forgot to order on of 5 entrees and failed to refill the coffee even after being asked. The food was good and it won't stop us from returning.
