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.

Stayed at The Nines Hotel. Urban Farmer located inside on the 8th floor. Good food, good bar selection and a friendly bartender. A little pricey (one entree, salad and drink was about $77.00). its of choices and a good place to meet friends.

Urban Farmer serves up modern northwest fare in a country-chic restaurant in 8th-floor atrium of the Nines Hotel. We visited for brunch. Their house made english muffins were delicious--more like a crumpet. I also enjoyed the biscuits and gravy, which was actually a breakfast sandwich...More

We would love to try Urban Farmer for dinner or lunch after eating breakfast here. The homemade English muffins are to die for. Locally made marionberry jam also made an impression. We ordered both of the breakfast sausages and loved the homemade flavors and freshness....More

Hipster Portland only semi-intrudes on what is a very good place to play carnivore. The choice of dry-aged steak is impressive and there are a range of delicious sides if you want to feel a little less guilty.

No way. We found the service disinterested, and the place itself is very self absorbed, but it wasn't that slow.

I follow a gluten free diet and was able to easily eat gluten free at Urban Farmer. Some restaurants say food is gf and then I have a reaction, but not at UF. All clear!
