My first time there was for
My first time there was for Easter Brunch with my family and some friends. We were seated promptly and the service was great. Everyone had something different, and everyone was very pleased with their choice. I would definitely return to this restaurant to try dinner.

We went here for brunch on Sunday and it was delicious. Sat outside and great atmosphere. Food was excellent. Only knocking off a star because omelet wasn't very hot.

The food was pretty good,
The food was pretty good, the outside patio looked inviting and the music was nice, but this is not a date spot. Friday at 7pm every other table had a toddler at it and the noise level was robust. I have eaten here for lunch and loved it, I believe we should have stuck with just lunch.

I had one of their specials
I had one of their specials - a grilled veal chop with mushroom Risotto. Delicious! Went with two women and this type of dish can definitely be split on a "Girls Night Out." They also offer a large selection of small plates. Patio is wonderful!!!!

I like Union Kitchen. Sometimes the food is hit or miss. I usually for for Brunch. I like the bottomless mimosas. Not the best but for $9 its not bad. The manager is the reason I keep going back. He is attentive, friendly and always checks in on the tables. Try this place for brunch cause its a cool place to hang with friends and have a good time.

Mother's Day Brunch
We are regulars on Sunday morning at the Union Kitchen. While they were busier on Mother's Day, they had a special menu with new items, and were able to accomodate the last minute arrival of our son from Austin. We love the friendly service and great egg dishes.

Great food and outdoor dining
Offers farm fresh food and unique twists on old favorites. I plan to make Union Kitchen a regular stop. Best overall spot in Bellaire.

Great Neighborhood find
Love the salads and lite dining options. Like the outside area and proximity to the neighborhood. Inside is good but loud.
Breakfast/Brunch foods are fair...not as tasty as they could be....but large portions.
Have not been for dinner.
Service was very nice and friendly. Would like it to move a little quicker on ordering
and closing with the check. Overall its a good find.

excellent food and attentive service. really enjoy this restaurant. it's possible to have a real conversation because the noise level is manageable.

One of our favorite Houston restaurants. Food, quite different and excellent. Love to listen to singer/guitarist Paul de Fatta. Especially on a summer evening, it can be very special.
6/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has not disappointed me once. The food is outstanding and so is the service. I have recommended it to many friends and will continue to do so.

Great Service and delicious food
We had six on Father's Day and I could not believe how fast our service was. We all enjoyed our meal- some steak, hamburgers, waffles, eggs and pasta - a little of everything to fit each ones desire!! Not many restaurants can do that and everyone enjoyed their lunch/brunch!!

Father's Day brunch
Don't know about the bar scene or wine list. We went on a Sunday morning for brunch.
The food, service, everything was excellent . we had a wonderful time!

Memorable Fathers Day!
We've taken my Mom to Union Kitchen several times during the year and my Dad usually tags along. He told me he couldn't wait to get to his "day" here at the Bellaire location because of the food choices. He's always trying out different foods, but never the brunch. His "Day" came and we had a great time with the food, service and friendliness of the staff to make his "Day" extra special. We love to eat here and look forward to the next time.

Love it, love it, love it
My husband ordered the Hamburger. It was litterally the best hamburger I've ever tasted. I ordered the steak and eggs Benedict off of the brunch menu. It was excellent! Perfectly seasoned! Our youngest daughter got the fettuchini Alfredo from the kids menu (which we never expect to be very good) and were surprised at how fabulous it was! Rich creamy Alfredo sauce in a good portioned bowl! Our oldest daughter ordered a Ceasar salad. It was fresh, good amount of dressing and she loved that they put a lot of cheese!!!
Wonderful restaurant! I'm very impressed! New favorite!

Reunion with an old friend
My wife and I met an old friend whom we had not seen for 10 years at th Union Kithchen. We had an exceptional meal and dining experience. Jordan was our server and provided impeccable service. The food was interesting and well prepared. (Go for the S'more sunday for dessert.) The only glitch came from Open Table. The Oepn Table sytem assigned us outdoor seating when none had been requested. Fortunately, there was ample seating inside the restaurant.

Great neighborhood restaurant
We arrived, were seated and our order was taken all without delay. They have more interesting selections and the food was much better than the standard fare from chain restaurants. We will be back again soon.

Excellent place for an anniversary
My wife and I celebrated our 29th anniversary at ths restaurant for dinner on Sunday. The wait staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was served in an excellent timeframe. Both of our steaks were prepared exactly as we asked for hem and seasoned well. The desert we shared was fantastic. I even found a port wine that I hadn't tried before that I thoroughly enjoyed.

One of the manager's here is so amazing. Always helpful and friendly. Brunch was delicious and mimosas are great!!!!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was excellent. Ribeye was great, Parmesan crusted chicken very well prepared. Service was very accommodating. During the week dining very low key and relaxed.

Good Food-Good Wine-Good Firends
DIned here on a Friday night. Food was delicious. Saw two other groups of friends dining out as well and enjoyed visiting with them. Our young waiter was a bit inexperienced, but he was attentive and the manager was quick to help him out. We'll definitely be back often.

The service was amazing and the food was incredible!
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
This restaurant has really made some great improvements in the last year. They accommodated me with a made to order pizza which was delicious. The food is consistently good, as well as the service. We had dinner, then were back for brunch the next day! the tostadas at brunch were outstanding. Everyone at the table tried them and agreed. Everyone cleaned their plates. The bottomless mimosas were very good and I couldn't get through half without someone filling it up again.

Restaurant Week(s) Success
Food and service are consistently good. It's nice that they are involved in the Restaurant Week(s) Fundraiser.

Ready to Return
Union Kitchen was a first time for us, but we would like to return. On the edge of West U, the restaurant is on a busy street. The views are lacking, but the outdoor patio was large, cool, and inviting. At lunchtime the staff was not rushed, and very attentive and pleasant. Our choices, tomato bisque soup, the soft shell crab sandwich, and the salmon salad, were all well prepared, but not outstanding. Serving sizes were generous. The dishes at the tables around us were attractive, and my companion and I both said we would enjoy trying more menu items at Union Kitchen in the future.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
It is a HIP place for West U and Bellaire crowdto have good food and a cocktail. Not for after little League games.

Had a great time with friends.
Had a great time with friends. Our waiter was pleasant but not intrusive. Food was interesting and delicious. The restaurant was very busy in a good way. The patrons got younger the later it got. Noise level was lively, but we had no problem with conversation at our table.

This was our first time, but definitely not our last! The food was very fresh and innovative.

Great Steak & Sides
Great foot and very nice restaurant. Very friendly staff. Food always comes cooked properly and in a timely, but not too fast manner. Presentation always good. Great upscale neighborhood restaurant.

Great food and excellent wine list
Went here from the good reviews online. Not disappointed! Food was excellent and the service was prompt and very polite. I have already started recommending this place to family and friends. I look forward to returning!

Best Local Restaurant
My husband and I love calamari so we started with that. It was the best calamari I have ever had. Wow! I had the stuffed shrimp and my husband had meatloaf. Each dish was uniquely prepared and delicious. I wish that I had room for dessert because I saw a few that I would like to try. We will definitely come back!
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great neighborhood gathering place
We enjoyed a lovely Friday night here. Nice wine and some delicious sea bass. Can't wait to go back

We had eaten at Union Kitchen
We had eaten at Union Kitchen before, and were so happy to return. Although the restaurant was packed on a Saturday night, we had attentive service, great food and wine. Will look forward to going back.

New Favorite Brunch Spot
I've been to Union Kitchen for lunch a few times and decided to try it for brunch today. The little lemony muffins they bring out to the table were so good we couldn't stop eating them. Everything we ordered was very good, as were the carafes of mimosas. Our server Roberto was very attentive and made our brunch time very enjoyable. Will definitely be back.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Really good food!
Creative and comforting food, with a good variety. Loud on the patio, but fun. Little more quiet and upscale inside. A nice kid menu as well.
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
The menu gives you lots of options, will definitely be back soon.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had seen the union kitchen a few times while driving nearby, and finally decided give it a try. I have to say we were not disappointed. The food was great. Their kids menu is good as well. The service was a bit slow, but we were not in a rush so it didn't matter. It was lunch time and past 2 PM, so there were not many customers in the restaurant and things may have been slowing down. Might try this place for dinner one day and see how different/same it is.
Definitely would recommend this place.

Don't be fooled by the exterior
This was an excellent dining experience in a well-above-average neighborhood establishment. To be frank, the location and exterior appearance say; "This doesn't look like much" but once inside these impressions are immediately dispelled. It's friendly, intimate, surprisingly elegant and was altogether a very positive experience. As first time visitors we were only able to sample a limited number of items from what is a broad-based and interesting menu. What we had was well executed and appeared within a reasonable time frame.
Many children were there but were all extremely well-behaved. (We were there on a Friday at 6pm)

Great gem of a restaurant!
Every time I dine there, the food is always fresh and delicious. Great menu and ambiance!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
We dined with a coupon from Travelzoo. It was all it said it would be. Avocado stuffed with crab, scallops and stuffed shrimp and raspberry cheesecake all wonderful. We will definitely be going back.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
Glad it's in my neighborhood
A nice bistro type restaurant with good food and definitely a big step up food-wise from previous place on this site. When we arrived it was packed, but the service was very good. We got our bottle of wine. The crab avocado appetizer was great. The salad was not bad. I ordered a veal chop on the grill with oporto reduction. I wish the sauce could have been a bit more flavorful as the grilled veal overpowered it. It needed a bit of uumph. My wife ordered the Union burger, which I tried and was very good. The Tiramisu and the expresso were excellent. I will definitely return to try it again.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
I hadn't been to the Union Kitchen since their early days when they took over from Nick's . . . It was okay, but I wasn't very impressed but it's gotten MUCH better since then. Nice varied menu with a great selection of starters. Good wine list that isn't as highly priced as I would have expected. The service was excellent!
