Urban Farmer redefines the modern steakhouse with an emphasis on Northwest, sustainable ingredients and simple, straightforward preparations within a farmer chic environment. The menu honors national and local culinary traditions sourcing ingredients from some of the Northwest’s finest eco-friendly producers like Sudan Farms, Wooden Bridge, Nicky Farms, and Cattail Creek. Open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, weekend brunch and happy hour, Urban Farmer remains a reliable and approachable destination amidst Portland’s bustling food scene.Designer David Ashen of D-ASH Design in New York created a unique restaurant space within the 8th floor atrium lobby of the Nines Hotel. The space makes use of organic, reclaimed and modern materials such as a 20-foot communal table sourced from an old-growth Douglas Fir. The spacious “Deck” captures the light-hearted feel of outdoor dining and is accented by a field of wheat grass in the center of the room. A video installation by one of Portland’s favorite experimental artists, Matt McCormick, rolls stunning images of the city’s rural and urban landscapes. The “Pantry” offers an intimate setting with walls of steel and reclaimed timber, as well as shelves stacked with vibrant jars of pickled fruits and vegetables. The Library , adjacent to Urban Farmer in the lobby, is the ideal venue for guests to host private parties, play a game of pool or enjoy a quiet cocktail.

This is by far the best brunch I have ever had.

It was their Mother's Day brunch, and there were six of us. The food was simply amazing. The chef created such a wide variety of creative offerings, with everything fresh and delicious. Amazing.

Girlfriend weekend in Portland, and we landed at this wonderful restaurant in downtown Portland. We started with a farm-to-table vegetable salad that came with an incredibly fresh mint/cilantro sauce. We were in the mood for steak, but the ribeye sizes are way too big for one person alone, so we decided to split the 20 oz. wagyu ribeye, along with... More

One of the best steaks I've had at a restaurant (and I've had more than my fair share)! The menu is broken down by cut of steak, and then by provenance (e.g., Oregon, grass-fed, grain-finished, NY). I chose the 21-day dry-aged NY grain-finished NY steak, which proved to be perfect!

The filet options for grass or grain fed were great. Sides were large and tasty. Drinks were good, but fewer Oregon wines than anticipated.

My sister and I came here for breakfast/brunch on Saturday. Awesome views and decor. It might be a "hotel restaurant" which I usually avoid, but I had attended a benefit luncheon the week before and the food was delicious. Charming seating areas both open and more private.
