Diner Reviews
  • "The wait staff is excellent - Samatha is the best,. Manager is very visible"
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Went there with friends (4 total). Our entrée arrived right before the appetizers, which we just declined and sent back. The manager apologized and comped dessert for all four of us. the food was excellent but timing was a little off and I think this is a problem with this restaurant. However the outstanding food makes up for the mishap."

  • "Great menu, a good wine list and the food is some of the best in Kingwood. It comes across as an exclusive place, but many of the patrons were dressed very casually, so there's no dress code. I had the filet mignon and it was very good. I was a little surprised that a $27 steak wasn't Prime (it was Angus), but it was prepared so well I wouldn't have known the difference in a blind taste test. My wife has the pasta with crabmeat and it was outstanding. My only complaint - and it's a tiny one, almost too small to mention - is the professionalism of the wait staff. They don't seem to have been trained enough to reflect the ambience of the restaurant. It's a small thing, but something the manager can work on."

  • "We have bee to Union Kitchen at least 5-6 times in recent months and have enjoyed it every time. My only complaint would be that the tables are small and are jammed in making it very tight- not much room around the tables and making the tables crowed with glasses, bread, and appetizers. The " library room" is particularly cramped. We had a party of seven on Saturday night and we sat at a table that was very cramped, near the kitchen door and waiters with arms full of plates of food were squeezing by the table between the table and wine cabinets. It must be very difficult for the serve staff to work in such cramped space, and it was disturbing to have a lot of people so near the table. But, as always, the food was wonderful!"

  • "We were delighted with Union Kitchen! The food was excellent, the service fantastic, and our friends were impressed. Now we have an excellent restaurant in our area to take our friends without having to drive to Houston."

  • "We need a place like this in Kingwood. Love the Bloody Mary bar on Sunday. Food was great. We plan on coming to try dinner."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The service was great the day I went but the food was tepid in temperature and had to be sent back. In a restaurant of this caliber that is inexcusable and should never happen. The favors were good, however."

  • "A great experience all around..... everything is perfect! The food, the service and the decor is warm and upscale. Even during the week, the restaurant is buzzing....."

  • "The Ambiance was wonderful.. Service was very good. Friendly, pleasant, quick, knowledgeable. The food was fantastic ! We started with Texas blue crab cakes !! Very good....some of the best ever I ordered lamb chops. They were perfection . However.....the side that came with my lamb chops was parsnip puree & ginger carrot puree !! !"

  • "The food was amazing. We are going back again this week."

  • "The Union Kitchen came recommended from a neighbor. A good friend & I went for lunch. We were delighted to find that we could order from both the lunch & dinner menus that gave us a huge selection. Both food & service were excellent. Entire staff was very welcoming & pleasant. 'Can't wait to go again."

  • "I have eaten at the Union Kitchen three times now and every time the food was very good. However during two of the three visits, the service left a little to be desired. This time the waiter brought our appetizer and didn't bring plates for the appetizer, so we had to use our tiny bread plates. We then had to ask him to bring bread for the table. Once we finished our appetizer, the tiny, used plates were not removed from the table and we had to stack them over to the side where they remained during our entire dinner only to be removed once we had finished the main course. I still recommend the Union Kitchen for great food and it is very nice to finally have good food in Kingwood, but hopefully the service issues will be corrected soon."

  • "Service was a bit sluggish. The food was excellent. A bit pricey for a neighborhood hangout."
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "We went around 7pm on a Friday night and the place was packed. The service was still good and the food is DELICIOUS. We are looking forward to going back many times and trying something new from the menu each time."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Perhaps due to new kitchen staff.....took 3 tries to get our 2 pizzas to our table.....which resulted to more time spent at the restaurant. Our server was attentive , apologetic and kept us informed all the time throughout the process of getting our pizzas out right. Perhaps the restaurant should train the staff instead of trial & error with customers' orders. Anyway, we are regulars and were always happy with previous brunches, lunches and dinners at the Union Kitchen."

  • "The Triple Eggs Benedict was fantastic. I recommend the Bottomless Mimosa for the cost. The Wait Staff was energetic took great care of our table."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Don't let the location steer you away. The good is very good. Table cloths and wine glasses on the table. The service was very accommodating. I had the petite filet which was excellent withy she's potatoes and veggies. Would have it again. The buffalo mozz Salad was not made with buffalo mozz but simply fresh mozz. Not sure they know the difference, and instead if basil, the used leaf lettuce and ? Kale which did not impress. Otherwise, I would go back!"

  • "Enjoyed every time.....brunch or lunch or dinner......good food and service"
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "Went with great anticipation because so many good reviews. very dissapointed. Great waitress, nice ambiance but food was OK...not worth the price asked. I had sea bass...the bass was plainly cooked no special sauce or spicing...was served over some delicious beans (credit there). Wife had chicken pistachio...nothing grand...served over overcooked basic spaghetti....terrible. I'm some what of a hack cook at home...and my criteria is if I can make it at home then why eat out...well I've done chicken almondine and rate it better than their pistachio chicken version. My opinion for the money spent I'd much rather enjoy Pappas or Pappdeux...I feel like I get my monies worth there. Sorry Union Kitchen...oncewasenough"

  • "This was where Sorento's was located, this was a great move this is my second visit to this restaurant and was not disappointed. Great variety and reasonable prices."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "I have eaten at Union Kitchen several times, and every time they are spot on! The food is unbelievably delicious! Service is pleasant, and the ambience is fine, but come here for the food. I had the shrimp burger at lunch and it was delightfully complex (and that is the first time I have ever used an expression like that). The bun was amazing, the patty and toppings so fantastic, plus it came with homemade chips and a fun little sauce. One of the more memorable meals I have ever had. The dinners I've had have been just as good. Love this place! And living in Kingwood, we don't have tons of choices, so it is especially nice to have such a great dining choice. You will not regret coming to this restaurant!!"

  • "Good food, great service, reasonable price.. More customers every time I go...."
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The staff here are as open and friendly as the guys and coeds who served you in your favorite college hangout-but with many significant improvements. They are older, wiser and far more knowledgeable about the fine points of wining and dining. The chefs in particular are not frat house cooks- they have created some really appealing entrees and 'small dishes'. The wine list is quite serviceable, a page of reds a page of whites and not many over $100. I did find the pasta sauces to be a bit spicy."

  • "Had a reservation and was immediately seated for a very early dinner. Waitress was good, paying timely attention, took order accurately and was friendly. Bill was accurate and the payment process was quick."

  • "My girlfriend and I looked forward to eating at this restaurant all week, and we were not disappointed. The service was fantastic, the food was delicious, and it is a place we can't wait to go back to."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "This is a nice new addition to the Kingwood dining scene and a good replacement for Sorento which had gone down hill and wasn't worth the money. Lots of creatively prepared dishes including many appetizers. pizzas and entrees. Nice wine list including a daily special offering at a good price."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Again, another great night at Union kitchen in kingwood. Reservation was for 9.30, we arrived at 9.25 and we're seated immediately. Service was outstanding, food was, as usual first class. Already looking forward to our next visit to UK..."

  • "Lovely atmosphere. Lots of variety in menu. Filet was amazing."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "Definitely above the competition in the 59 kingwood/humble area in terms of food and ambience and worth checking out if you live on the northeast side."
    Dined on 11/30/2013
  • "It's about time Kingwood gets a restaurant we can be proud of! Thank you Union Kitchen for coming out to us."

  • "A friend and I tried Union Kitchen for brunch this past weekend and were not disappointed! Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, attentive service and wonderful food. We liked it so much, we've already made our reservation to come back! And I'll be putting this on the list of places to go with my hubs, as well."

  • "My husband and I found the union kitchen as we were searching for a place in our neighborhood. We really enjoyed it here and will probably go back because it is so close."
    Dined on 2/8/2014
  • "Having recently moved from the Galleria area to Humble, great restaurants are no longer on every corner so it was nice to have an enjoyable meal without driving downtown. The professionalism of the staff is somewhat lacking, hopefully they will grow with the restaurant. The food was good overall, the lighting needs some help - it seemed harsh in the bar area. But a real plus - one TV in the bar area had the Golf Channel playing - this will be a draw for my husband."

  • "I really wanted the Union Kitchen to be good. It just is not. Too ambitious a menu that the restaurant just does not bring off. A little simple elegance on the menu would help a lot."
    Dined on 2/6/2014
  • "Too much shrimp-- horrible fish choices--we're on the Gulf man--Seabass-Salmon-Rainbow Trout???? Horrible small plates selection--too many with crab--no meat and poor descriptions and Chili's style offerings for $$$$. Menu soooo big cannot see my date---also laminated--yuk--TOO bright inside--nothing romantic and secluded. Sides sound great but most dishes are paired so what sides would I order??? Two ground beef offerings and 99% of chicken dishes served with pasta. Swap with side???? This is an expensive version of Applebees. Won't be back until major changes are made."

  • "The food and service was excellent. The restaurant was FULL, so the noise level was a bit high, but the whole experience was enjoyable and a bit pricey. We will return for the wonderful cusine."
