    I cannot believe they are closed...don't know why. But I hope its only temporary. There are a lot of steak places in Philadelphia and very notable ones. My husband and I have visited many of them but not one of them got the response from him .... mmmmmmmmmmmmm ... when he tasted his steak at Union Trust! The server was more responsive to those who had 4 or more diners. We were low on his totem pole. His loss....my husband is a very generous tipper. Luckily, he gave me that bill to pay that night. (Well, it was his birthday! haha)

    Outstanding food and service. For the appetizer, we had the absolute best scallops I have ever had. Then, for dinner every steak was cooked to perfection. We really enjoyed the "home-style" sides as we were able to try more than one. We will definitely be back when we're in Philly again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/31/2012
    There are many steakhouses in Philadelphia and in comparisson I was not overall impressed. When selecting my next special occasion dining location, union trust would not be at the top of my list. The service was painfully slow. The wine and drinks were delicious, and the seafood appetizers were tasty, but my wedge salad had soggy lettuce and was drenched in dressing, myself and another person in my party that I spoke to, we both had complaints about the meat being chewy. Overall we spent $1500 on dinner and left feeling like we received a subpar meal and very slow service.

    We were surprised when we walked in at 6:15 on a Friday night to be the only ones there. The building is beautiful but when we saw the prices on the menu we realized why. The food was good, not great, and the thrumming music and modern decor was distracting. The room did start to fill as we were leaving which was encouraging to see.

    Everything was outstanding!!! Our waiter was friendly and informative. Food was amazing!! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and were made to feel so special with complimentary champagne and a dessert to share. Not much is given for free these days, so it was a nice surprise. Will be back again for sure. P.S. the Philly pretzels in the bread basket is nice touch!!

    Tremendous service and very good food. We went on Saturday night to celebrate a special occasion. The waiter brought us a complimentary glass of champagne and scotch--which was such a nice touch. Steak and tuna tartare were perfection. The grand ceilings in this place make it a perfect spot for grand celebrations. Will definitely go back!

    I was very disappointed with union trust. First off I should have known something was wrong, the place was empty on a Saturday nite at 7pm ... We were seated and the hostess sat us at a table that wasn't set ... The waiter mumbled couldn't understand a word he was saying...Food took forever to come out then when it did it was cold ... Had to send it all back ... Have to say they did try to make things right, they brought us out all new dinner witch were luke warm... Dessert was no better, there lemon cake was stale and coffee was cold.... Needless to say I will not be back ... Bottom line service and food were Sub Par

    Ambiance of the restaurant was fantastic; great high ceilings, tall booths, and great all over seating. All the food was excellent, although my steak was a little overcooked -- which isn't something you'd like to see when you go to a STEAKHOUSE. But overall, a very positive experience!

    Overall it was okay.. They were out of creme brule for the restaraunt week menu so they offered their s'mores on the house and ended up charging us for it. Also, they were shoving the aqua panna down our throats when we asked for regular ice water. Ended up having to pay for the water. The mix up was due to a 'miscommunication' between servers. Which was embarrassing for me because I am not one to complain about a bill. Steak was cooked too rare. Just was one thing after the other which lead me to have a bad experience. And not only that but after we complained about the water on the bill he told us to take it out of his tip? Which seemed like our tip wasn't good enough or something?

    I took my son to Union Trust for his birthday since it was Restaurant Week and a perfect opportunity to give this beautiful place a try. Their Restaurant Week menu was very limited but it touched all the bases so that was ok. The Filet Mignon was perfectly cooked and delicious. Unfortunately, I can't say the same for the Brussel Sprouts. They were roasted instead of steamed and they were quite tough. The waiter did his best to rectify the situation by bringing me more Brussel Sprouts but they weren't really any better. The dessert was very good! I'm glad that we got the opportunity to try Union Trust but I don't think we will be going back any time soon.

    My experience at Union Trust was disappointing. First, it took around 2 hours for all my food to fully come out. My waiter kept making excuses in order to stall the order. Also, my waiter was the absolute worse. Not only did he seem disinterested in serving us, he would neglect us throughout our meal. As for the food, my steak was severely overcook when I asked for it to be cooked medium. Along with that, my steak was flavorless. In summation, the steak was a complete disappointment.. I would never return to this restaurant. Rating-1/5

    As a first-time visitor to Union Trust, I was wholly impressed with every aspect of the restaurant. The service was attentive without being overbearing; the food was prepared as expected and the presentation was without fault. The dining area was spacious but not overwhelming. The Sweet Tea chicken was a full, tender breast with a a delicate flavor. While I did not "taste" the sweet tea essence, it did not detract from the quality. The shrimp cocktail was superb, with three large and extremely fresh pieces of shrimp. The only fault in the night was my date's filet mignon which she ordered medium rare, but was delivered well-done. However, the waiter and kitchen made an impressive turnaround in replacing her meal. Bravo.
