About Urban Farmer

Located in the lobby of the Nines Hotel, a luxury collection property, Urban Farmer features refined dining in an elegantly understated atmosphere. Prime Beef, dry aged in-house, takes center stage alongside locally grown vegetables hand-carried to the kitchen door. Local wines, many of which are organic and biodynamic, round out a stellar beverage program that Portland's own crafted Spirits. Classic cocktails, refined urban setting, with panoramic city views as seen from the lovingly restored verandas that line the Historic Meier & Frank Building, circa 1909. Whether you desire a quick, delicious country-style breakfast, a "locavore" lunch featuring Oregon's bounty, or dinner and drinks for 2 to 20 in Urban Farmer's artistically designed dining room, we look forward to serving you with homespun grace and warmth.

Urban Farmer Ratings and Reviews

Our appetizers and entrees took longer than expected, but the manager came over to apologize and comped the appetizer and a dessert. I feel like that went above and beyond and just showed us what class this establishment has to ensure that your dining experience is a positive one.

We were treated phenomenally, it was our Anniversary and they sent a delicious cheese plate to us while we were enjoying a pre dinner cocktail at the bar. Our dessert had a personal anniversary message written in chocolate. The cocktails were original and excellent and the dinner was fantastic. Will definitely return in the future.

Awesome and innovative good combo, absolutely delicious! We took my mom for brunch and had a nice large booth. They serve great coffee and really good food. The portions are large, the Benedict could be shared. I ate the shrimp and grits with pulled pork and this delicious gravy. Sounds like strange combo but was perfect. Service was good, ambiance is bright and lively. Loved it!

I ordered a petite fillet steak. I ordered it cooked rare. It was a very poor cut of steak - so tough I couldn't eat 1/2 of it - nor did I want to. For the price of this meal, I was very disappointed. I had eaten here once before and remembered a fine dining experience. Unfortunately, I had a bad experience this time. Martini was excellent. My wife had a salmon dish that was very good as was a side dish we shared. Hope this was a one off.

Dustin was our waiter and he is one of the best I have had in my many years of dining out. He knew the different menu items, ingredients and gave us excellent service. I will tell clients to make reservations and ask to be seated at his table/booth.

We enjoyed a family gathering there in celebration of a birthday and had one of the best dinners any of us has ever experienced. We've already made reservations to bring more of our family during the holidays and will be back often. We highly recommend it to locals and visitors alike.

This was one of the worst meals/restaurants we have eaten in Portland. The service was terrible, it took forever to get a beer and then when I finally did get a beer there was a fly in it. My wife had a hair in her food too. We will not be going back to Urban Farmer.

Altogether great experience. Service was wonderful, enjoyed their cheese and wine selection. The only aspect that bothered me was my main entree. I ordered the salmon and it came out extremely salty, I also thought the mushroom side was bland. Potato side was amazing!
For the price of the entree, I would say not worth it. I have gone to places who have served better salmon for much less. I would definitely go back for drinks and maybe some appetizers!

We had a disappointing experience here over the weekend. We waited over 30 min to be seated & steak ordered medium well was served rare. It was re-served equally rare & at that point we gave up. The manager was extremely embarrassed about our experience & did not bring us a check. Despite efforts to rectify our evening, under-cooking steak twice doesn't encourage us to visit here again.

The food was OK but not entirely worth the price. The sides were nothing special and the steak was just a steak. I'd go back just because the ambiance of the place makes for an awesome date location. Our server was great though and offered a wonderful dinning experience.

Came to the restaurant with high hopes as I had heard great things. I ended up with a disappointing experience. The wait staff did not seem to have any energy or real pride in what they were serving. I ordered the bone in ribeye medium rare. The steak was not cut well (not the same thickness throughout). This led to the edge being overcooked, the center being jus right, and the portion near the bone almost raw. Mushroom side had a strange flavor like rubbing alcohol about every third bite. A bright spot was the bartender. My drinks were well prepared and expertly presented. I likely won't be back as I am from out of state and need a more predictably good dining experience for the money. Also, I can heartily recommend the cornbread that is served prior to the meal. Very well prepared.

We were impressed from the moment we arrived. The hostess greeted us exactly how a hostess should, happy to see us, engaging, took us to a quiet table for our anniversary. Our waiter was passionate and helped us decide on the perfect meal. Our food was amazing, great steak, great sides. We were extremely pleased with our anniversary dinner choice.

My server insults my girlfriend unintentionally(I'm pretty sure) about the the amount of food she was ordering as of she's a big girl and had a large appetite. We ordered a lot of food bc we wanted to sample a nice variety of what your establishment had to offer. I'm not the type to even write these kind of reviews but it definitely effected the rest of our interactions the rest of the meal despite the wonderfully executed meal... The last positive thing I will say, I haven't been to a steak house in Portland who offers the variety of different steaks to order(aged, grass fed, corn finished ect.). All in all very nice but like I said the comments made by my server was uncomfortable and effected my date for the rest of the evening.

All three of us ordered the Steak Tour, and all three of us received at least one steak that was extremely unpleasant (given the quality of the restaurant and the price). Nobody complained to the wait-staff because we generally don't send food back, but for 65 dollars We all felt one of the steaks was sub-par.
Also the vegetables that we ordered came very under cooked.

Environment is excellent and one of a kind in Portland. Scallops (main course) and octopus (starter) were perfectly cooked and delicious. Porterhouse was heavily marinated and a bit too salty. Meat was cooked uneven - medium rare on the outside, and rare closer to the bone.

Great steak house, I think I counted 14 choices. Wagyu, grass fed, grain fed, corn fed . You can do a tasting or choose your preference. Service exceptional. Appetizers four gras, octopus just two of many choices. Bone marrow add on superb .

I really was not as impressed by the meal as I had hoped to be. The food was good, but not great. The pricing did not accurately reflect the quality of the meal. I have had better for much less. The waitress was top drawer. I'm sorry the kitchen didn't follow through for her.

Great brunch in Portland. I've dined at Urban Farmer for brunch on two trips to this beautiful city and each were memorable. Highly recommend the crab and mushroom omelette. The house made English muffins saved my hungover life. We will be back!!

I had high hopes when I booked a table for my husband's birthday at Urban Farmer. We were both very disappointed by the food. We eat out at higher-end dining venues a lot and both thought that the food was WAY below par for the price point - about on par with a chain steakhouse; nothing very special from a culinary standpoint.The service was good. That was the one saving grace.

The food was not very good. I would have enjoyed my steak cooked instead it was raw and cold, the butter topping didn't even melt as the temperature was not medium as I had ordered. It was grisly meat not prime. My husbands fish was rare too. We would have complained and sent back but it took so get in the first place we were just ready to go. The server was very nice.
