Diner Reviews
  • "We had a group of 4 adults and 4 kids, probably not a restaurant generally good for kids so much. Our party was seated too near the front door and a kiosk they use for ordering so it felt crowded but understand their positioning. Waiter appeared overbooked on tables and while he tried not to rush he was obviously distracted, food was very good, haven't had a bad meal here yet. Onion rings too thickly breaded. Also, should not give kids under 8 large slippery glasses! :)"

  • "The biggest negative to living in Kingwood is the lack of 5 star restaurants with equally professional staff and notable experienced Chefs....Union Kitchen is raising the bar....we were very pleased. I ordered the Special which was a very tasty Salmon and my wife ordered the Chicken...both presentations were 5 star and excellent. Our waitress Tiffney (sp?) was very professional and we were able to discuss the restaurant when we asked the mgt. Valeri (sp?) to sit at the table and give us some history on Union Kitchen and their service. Thank you Union Kitchen we are glad you came to Kingwood and we will do our best to support you....look forward to introducing Union Kitchen to our friends next time."

  • " Our last two or three visits have been very disappointing. We have noticed a down grade in the food quality. The service is inconsistent. The tables are too small to accommodate a party of four, and they are crowded together. We have been seated in the "library" room (on the left) the last several times, and that room is particularly noisy and cramped. There has been a noticeable downgrade in the food quality, as well, in my/our opinion- to the point that I doubt we will return there again. Our dinners were lukewarm when served to us on Friday night. There were two very loud (one screamed intermittently) young children at the table next to us which was very disturbing."

  • "The Sea Bass is exceptional. The chef modified the regular menu presentation with a delicious blend of asparagus and parmigiana risotto. It's not cheap, but a nice evening out!"

  • "My husband and I dined in the Union Kitchen/Kingwood Tx on July 12th 2014, as it was also our 21st Anniversary dinner. Our dining experience was exceptional from the moment we walked in the door & asked for a "little table out of the way" our hostess had the mostess! Our wait person [Brandon] was Impeccable, friendly, mannerly & so efficient. My wine, delicious, our appetizers superb, our entree's "An Oscar to The Chef'! This, undoubtably will be our "Go To" restaurant from now on. Also, we entertain many out of town friends & relatives so anxious to show off "THE NEW GUY IN TOWN"!"

  • "We were excited to try a new restaurant in our area. We were impressed with the ambiance and live music. The avacado appetizer was good. Our waitress gave us great service. Many of the entrees didn't come with sides, so you'd have to order a la carte. My chicken Parmesan was metiocre. Felt like I could get better tasting at a lower price at the Italian restaurant. My husband's trout was fine, but the Cajun couscous tasted like they dropped the salt shaker in it. He never complains about food, but it was inedible. He asked for rice instead, but they had to make it, so it took a few minutes. it came out with water in it. The manager took the price off for that, but don't think we'll be dining there again. Too pricey for the quality."

  • "Our first visit here was great, no problems. This recent visit here we were left wondering what happened to the cook. My appetizer was NOT what I expected, the "vuelva la vida" is a common flavorful seafood cocktail which was served very bland with regular cocktail sauce and served with tortilla chips rather than crackers. I sent it back to the kitchen. My wife enjoyed her meal there last time so much she re-ordered it much to her disappointment she found her meal swimming in its own sauce which was not there the previous visit. My entree was good but not great. The manager came over and apologized for the appetizer which was appreciated, but we still left unhappy and disappointed."

  • "It was a awesome place to eat. Server Justin was great man to deal with. Our steaks melted in our mouths. The desserts were good to take home. The only problems were the first time I went they served Guinesses extra stout which no place does and made me fell in love with it. But the second time they were out."

  • "This our third dinner at the Union Kitchen (Kingwood). On our first two visits, one of which was immediately after the Kingwood location opened, we thought the food was excellent. This visit, the food was a bit off the pace. My spouse's "Porkabucco" was not "fall off the bone" tender as it was in our prior visits. Sauces on the rest of our party's dishes were all on the heavy side - kitchen may have been trying to work off a butter surplus!! Service was great. We'll be back. Hopefully, just an off night in the kitchen."

  • "I ordered a steak and although it was cooked to the right temperature, I thought it could have used more flavor. A little more seasoning, perhaps? My husband ordered the chicken pesto on orzo, which did have flavor, but the chicken was overcooked and dry. The last time we came here we ordered pizza and I think we liked that better. We didn't have dessert, but the dessert tray looked very tasty!"

  • "Went here for my wife's birthday. Food was generally quite nice but decidedly under seasoned. My veal chop was generally well cooked to medium rare but not seasoned and no crust at all but still tasty. Carbonara is a favorite and very well done but still curiously not seasoned at all. Service was excellent and while we had to wait way too long for appetizer and main rounds we still enjoyed."

  • "Flash fried items tasted like deep fried. Supposed to have 4 lamb chops medium rare got 3 and quarter overcooked. Dish was warm but not hot as I think it should have been. Sides were average but overpriced. Desserts were excellent. Crab avocado appetizer was bland and not what I would have expected. Petite filet was very good. Service was excellent. Union Kitchen burgers were the top item. The atmosphere was very nice and quiet. Great place for large groups in the side dining room. Menu has great choices, only drawback is how is it going to served."

  • "Second time to Union Kitchen, first time for dinner. We both had seafood which was fresh and prepared well. The side dishes complimented and did not overwhelm the main course. Very good wine list with reasonable prices. The Tiramisu was tasty but a little different (this is Teas you know)."

  • "Waited long intervals for food - the waiter provided fequesnt updates regrding kitchen delays. My husband;s chicken serving was too small which the manager was proactive in addressing. She indicated that the remainder of the chicken would be coming. However it doid not appear until after my husband's plate had been removed - the waiter gave no indication that the rest of the meal was on the way. We took the chicken home in a take-away box. Seemed to be kitchen problems on Father's Day - and lack of communication between cooks, waiter, and manager. Otherwise the food was OK."

  • "One of our favorite restaurants. On Father's Day however I'm not sure they were ready for that many people. Food took a long time. Food came out cold. Had to send things back to Warm. No manager apology"

  • "The restaurant was good but really wasn't great but I think there are better restaurants in Kingwoods Town Center. The wait staff was very friendly. I had the veal chop which was too tender and my wife had the scallops which she enjoyed. We had the crab stuffed avocado and it was OK but the breading was too thick."

  • "Food and specialty drinks great as usual. Disappointed in the service this time compared with previous visit. Waiter was slow to take orders, slow to refill drinks. I was disappointed in that I confirmed during reservation call that this was to be a birthday celebration. The young lady I spoke with assured me there would be a nice dessert presentation with a birthday candle, etc. This did not occur even after I reminded our waiter of the special celebration as the reason for our visit. This was a disappointment compared to the previous birthday celebration we had at this location."

  • "The food was very good but the service and the kitchen's timing were poor. They brought the entree while we were eating our salads. We had to ask for bread and as one person went to get the bread our server proceeded to take away our bread plates. I suspect we had an inexperienced server because other tables around us seemed to be getting better service. I always look forward to trying desserts at a new restaurant. We ordered the bread pudding which looked nothing like it did on the dessert tray. It tasted like it was microwaved, mushy. "

  • "Not that impressed, this is my second time and I would not go out of my way to go there again. First time I had a club sandwich, which for the price was so small for the price, second time I had the Pecan Crusted Chicken, chicken was soggy, could not take the pecans at all. A friend had the Lobster grilled cheese and did not like it, sandwich was cold and could not even taste the cheese."

  • "I booked this location for my brothers graduation for high school. I didnt know that my parents had been to another location and werent very impressed. Nevertheless they came and ended up leaving saying this location, food and service was so much better. From the moment we walked in they were friendly, inviting and accommodating. Our waiter was attentive, and the food came out piping hot. One server who delivered my daughters mac and cheese say that it was hot asked if he could put it in the walking for a second while it cooled down because he cooled his daughters food at home that way. Drinks were great. I would drive from my side (katy) to go to that location. "

  • "For my first time at Union Kitchen, I was both pleased and disappointed. Upon arrival for our 6:00 reservation, the restaurant had very few patrons in it, but we were seated at the very small table closest to the kitchen. Several of the friendly wait staff greeted us. Rico was very attentive and gave several good suggestions. We had a Groupon and had the brie and fig preserves app, which was tasty, but a bit messy. My friend had filet mignon and I had lamb chops. Both were delicious, but we preferred the chops. For dessert, the bananas foster tasted good, but didn't have any warmth and crispiness. Rico asked that we talk to a manager about that, but after waiting about 15 minutes, he said that the only manager there was unavailable."

  • "We dined here on Mother's Day. We made reservations so we were seated immediately. Service was great and our waitress was very friendly. The only problem was the food. We both dined off the brunch menu and it was very bland. Not what I expected from such an expensive restaurant. Makes me scared to go try dinner at such a high price tag. "

  • "We enjoyed a great dinner at the Union Kitchen in Kingwood. Reservations were easy via OpenTable. One dish was accidentally dropped but we were swarmed with management and staff in an effort to compensate us for the mistake. A new dinner was out quickly. Accidents happen and the response was excellent. "
