Description: Urban Farmer redefines the modern steakhouse with an emphasis on...
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.

I Can't Get Enough of the Twice Baked Fingerling Potato Tart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every time we visit our daughter, who lives in Beaverton, we make the trek to Urban Farmer so I can have the potato tart. It is, without a doubt, one of the best dishes I have ever eaten. You might want to try the mac and cheese too. I am told the steaks are melt in your mouth great -... read more

I was staying in the Nines Hotel, and stumbled on this restaurant. I'm so glad I did. The food, drinks, beer, and service in this restaurant is so amazing, that I went back many times during my stay in Portland that week. I was never disappointed in any way. One thing I loved about the restaurant is their community table.... More

I'm not normally one to order a steak at a restaurant. I can never finish one on my own, and the usual preparation of butter and salt on the grill just doesn't do it for me.

It's no wonder that the Urban Farmer is on Portland's Top 101 restaurants - it is completely amazing. Despite being collocated in the Nines hotel, it is anything but a "hotel restaurant".

Wonderful experience. The perfect setting in the very cool lobby of The Nines Hotel The food truly exceeds expectation. It is the highest quality, you see it in the presentation and experience it in taste. Amazing home made approach to breakfast. Also, it is not extravagant in price for this exceptional hotel. Enjoy!

Restaurant part of the atrium lobby 8th floor of the Nines Hotel. Atrium goes up nine floors, so it is a very open ambience. Very good beef stroganoff and salads. Claims it is Portland's Steakhouse, but that is a bit much since the Ringside has claimed that title for decades.

Great place. We ate breakfast and each of us ordered something different and all of it was wonderful. Even the two year old was very happy. The service was great, the food was fresh and the atmosphere was unique. We will definitely go back, especially if we stay at the The Nines again.
