In a world of white tablecloths and subtle snobbery, we’re doing something rare: being real. We’re less steak and more house. Our house – and yours. Urban Farmer was founded on the idea that combining responsibly sourced food, high-quality ingredients and down-to-earth values would create a new kind of steakhouse, where people could create memories and communities could thrive.

We had brunch. The food was good. We had the Benedict, frittata and the eggs platter. Everyone agreed the food was delicious and the house made English Muffin was amazing. I was a little bummer that only had Earl Grey tea, but that did not take away from the meal. Would definitely eat here again.

I booked this place because it was large and tables looked like they were spaced pretty far apart. I looked at the menu briefly and food looked ok. I made the mistake of not looking at prices. Long story short, I got an Outback vibe with Del Frisco’s prices. Service was so, so. My major issue was at the end. After we got our round of drinks for last call and pay our $500 tab they then proceed to turn the lights on. Like at a 6th grade dance when it’s over. We continued to drink our full glasses and a couple minutes later the manager rolls up to tell us we can finish our drinks in the hotel lobby next door. I worked at restaurants all throughout college. After a restaurant closes there is still side work that needs to be done etc so there was no reason to turn the lights on and then kick us out especially after we forked over $500. I still have rage about this. I would choose Del Friscos, Barclay Prime , even Capitol Grill over this place.

The food was good, not quite great. The salads were somewhat overdressed. Probably a good idea to ask if the dressing should be on the side. Service was superb. I believe our waitress‘s name was Michelle but I am not 100% sure

I took my husband to Philadelphia as a Christmas gift and we arrived late on Friday. I reserved a table at Urban Farmer based only on the reviews on Open Table. All of the excellent reviews were well-deserved! I loved the cocktail I had (Old Curmudgeon) and the appetizers we shared - pork belly and Spanish Octopus - were so delicious that I will definitely return for those two alone. The steaks we ordered were perfect. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated, clean, and comfortable. Service was perfect. Our server was one of the best I’ve ever had anywhere. I highly recommend this restaurant.

One of the most mediocre meals I've had in Philadelphia. $250 for two people, I would rather go to Alpen Rose or Del Frisco's and might have honestly spent less. Steak was completely charred/cooked through on the bottom half and barely seared in the top. Sides were okay. Wine was considerably overpriced.

This visit to the Urban Farmer was my second time and they did not disappoint! Being a birthday celebration, everything from the drinks, appetizers, and entrees were very delicious. Our waiter was attentive but not overly present and everything arrived in a reasonable amount of time. The birthday dessert was a decadent delight and a nice surprise. I can’t wait to come back.

Our Christmas dinner was everything we could have asked for. And all our quirky requests (bread with the initial sparkling wine) were graciously granted. Mood/ atmosphere were great. Maybe the martini was a bit skimpy but nothing else was. Caesar salad and onion soup were both perfect versions of themselves. We will heartily recommend v

This was our first time at Urban Farmer and what a great experience! Our reservation was for Christmas Day. Our waiter's name was Drew and he was outstanding: attentive, pleasant, funny and had a great command of the menu. We had a party of 9 which included a little 2 year old. WE ALL enjoyed our food.
I got the short rib hash , which was full of savory short rib and mushrooms, with an egg on top. I also had a waffle with the crushed ginger snaps and REAL syrup.
Another member of the party ordered steak frites and the steak was so flavorful. The English Muffins are homemade on the premises and they looked so good.
Our cocktails were good as well.
I will definitely come back!!

What a gem near the parkway in Philly. Executive Chef Sonny Ingui nails the farm-to-table movement by staffing an on-site butcher, sourcing from local farms, and incorporating balanced tastes to his dishes. Try the charcuterie board as the meats are cured in-house, and don't forget about the extensive and creative cocktail list! Highly recommend this place.

We took our 2 boys(ages 7 & 8) here for dinner while spending a few nights in Philly for the holidays.

Urban Farmer is one of our favorite places to have dinner in the city! The cocktails were delicious and the food was good, but I ordered one of the filet specials and it came out a little over cooked. This is VERY UNLIKE Urban Farmer and our previous experiences. We also never received a side order we had placed but it seemed like they were very busy this Wednesday night.

The waiter made it right and reorder the beef and gave us a complimentary dessert. We had breakfast there the next morning and the food was SOOOO good! Glad we gave it another chance! Still a favorite of ours and glad they were so lovely in making it right!

Overall, we had a very nice dinner, but there were some disappointments. Charcuterie board was nothing special. Chilled shrimp and pork belly apps were both very good. Steaks were inconsistent- two of us had filets that were cooked exactly to temperature. Two of us had ribeyes that were overcooked and dry. Drinks were good.

I wasn't impressed with the quality of the meat, especially with how expensive it was. I ordered my meat medium and it was explained to me that it would be cooked pink/red, it was medium well. I returned it and it took forever to get it back and no apologies whatsoever from the server. Not returning!

This place is extremely expensive with very high quality ingredients so it is a real shame that everything is so overcooked. Servers are very accommodating and great, sent back and then raw. Chefs don't seem to know how to cook high quality beef or fish.
