A word from Unite Urban Grill
Located in the heart of Chicago’s Noble Square, Unite Urban Grill is the creation of husband and wife team Joe and Megan Krouse. Inspiration for the restaurant comes from Joe and Megan’s love for diverse cuisines. As a health conscious yogi, Megan has a special place in her palete for fresh vegetables and grains. Joe is a meat lover; before he met Megan there were only two food groups, “meat and no thanks.” But through their love of food, the pair teamed up to Unite taste buds.

Unite Urban Grill offers an accessible menu with quality seasonal ingredients and fresh grilled items. From the contemporary dining room to the open-air lounge and patio, guests can enjoy their meal in a relaxed and comfortable environment. The full bar features local craft beers, wine and specialty cocktails.

  • "Not a particularly inventive menu; emphasis is on grilled meat, but the vegaterian sides are much better and more appealing. Go for the vegaterian dishes; they're inventive and tasty."

  • "I had seen something about Unite online and when our kids wanted brunch in the city, we decided to try it. It is a beautiful place, great service and great food. Street parking was available close by. It was a beautiful Sunday morning and so the front windows were open, adding to the ambience. I would highly recommend this restaurant for any meal."

  • "My first trip was a success. Staff was very, very attentive. Cocktails were fabulous, food was very delicious. If you live nearby and haven't been you are missing out. If you don't live nearby it's worth a trip! Flatbreads were amazing, lamb-balls were delicious."

  • "Went here for my husbands birthday and was blown away. Great personal service, fantastic drinks and hands down the best Rib Eye steak we have ever had. (And we hail from New York City.. We know our beef!) It was a fabulous night topped off with a personal touch from the owner. Couldn't recommend it more! Will come back again and again :)."

  • "Second time at the restaurant. Two of us had steak and two had salmon, all cooked perfectly to our individual requests. The appetizer, salad and sides were all delicious and easily shared among the 4 of us. The service was very good again and the atmosphere welcoming. The owner stopped by briefly to check on us."

  • "I selected this restaurant based on reviews. The area wasn't lively and light on diner's. I was there on a Sunday 530pm. The food was nothing special. I had the White Fish...it was beautiful cooked (moist) but no flavor!! I put as much lemon on it as I could. If I didn't have the quinoa and ate french fries some others plates, it would have been a very dissatisfying meal. Price for just fish $17. all but sandwiches are ala carte. Our party of 5 (4 ordered burgers!) -- too pricey for tasteless food."

  • "Nice atmosphere, trendy look, not very crowded for a Friday nite, a few prime outdoor seats. Mostly great food, pork chops especially, but waiter said that the sides were meant for two to share. Not the case unless you are a bird. Sides were great, but need to make the portions a little larger. (exception, the French fries, which had fine portion size for two.) Waiter non-verbally took offense to my criticism of the sides portion sizes. Salmon entrée also mediocre, small portion, and just average."

  • "This was probably our 4th or 5th time at Unite. Honestly, it just has the very best food in town. Now that they offer a half slab of ribs, our group of 4 ordered that to share as an appetizer. Their ribs are outstanding."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The charcuterie board meats were very good and the cheeses were good but not necessarily special. The steak dishes and gazpacho were excellent and the salmon and side of broccoli a real treat. Dessert was great as well. The service was knowledgeable and friendly, and the waiter gave us good advice on the food and wine. The owner stopped by our table and was very interested in our dining experience. We look forward to going back."

  • "Our table had 2 croque-monsieurs, a really neat salad/veggie/poached egg dish and an omelet. All were excellent. Sat outside in a nice small sidewalk area but the inside looked very cool. Service was excellent. Very nice list of cocktails and beers. Nice people, good food. Not one thing to complain about."

  • "Unpretentious restaurant with a great healthy, seasonal menu. Went on a Saturday with another couple. We ordered short rib sliders and caprese salad to sart. Both were awesome. I had the organic salmon (a la carte) and mushrooms (a delicious mix of various types). My husband had the pork chop which was amazing. We had the peanut butter mouse cake for dessert. Overall it was an excellent experience and we'll be back."

  • "Always loving the menu - it changes with what is in season, and this dinner was a total hit. The salmon is always wonderfully cooked - I've had it twice, and when they ask how I want it done, and I saw "very rare" - they really do it."

  • "Second time we have been there, and we were again impressed with the dishes throughout the meal. The Pilsen cocktail was one of the better drinks I have had, especially for summer."

  • "We really enjoyed the menu selection. We had heard from friends this was a restaurant to try. We made the trip from the Northern Suburbs and found the ambiance, food and service to be outstanding. This restaurant has a very nice selection of entrees, sandwiches, appetizers, salads, desserts and more. The restaurant is well run, very clean and portions are great. The owner and his wife are walking around, and this really helps especially when the owner is nice and cares. We tried several appetizers and each was wonderful. We also tried several entrees and sandwiches and once again, every meal was well flavored and cooked perfectly. Staff is well trained as well."

  • "We were a party of 4. We shared flatbread & lamb meatballs for appetizers and the they were both delicious. In fact the flatbread was so good that we ordered a second one. My whitefish was the best I have had anywhere, not the usual thin sliver but a delicate, tasty piece of fish. My table mates had burgers which they all said were the best hamburger around. I really recommend Unite - the staff is helpful without being over powering and the ambiance is warm and inviting. It was a nice night so the large open window brought the beauty of the night inside. A really good restaurant with a great vibe. "

  • "On a Sunday evening of Memorial weekend, we came across this little gem because it had availability for a large party. We arrived and the restaurant was quiet and had plenty of space for all of us. We were greeted and seated immediately. Everything is a la carte, but the selection is good. We didn't order any appetizers, because our libations distracted us. The hanger steak was tender and juicy. A couple ordered the fish, but said it was small and were still hungry at the end of the meal. Overall, good choice. "

  • "my wife and I had an early 10th anniversary dinner there and it was perfect. The ribeye was spot on. We had short rib sliders and the bidd salad for apps and my wife had the ravioli. the Peanut butter cake for desert was nice, great wine, soem craft cocktails and we were on our way to a great dining experience. Joe and Megan and wonderful hosts. Fabulous mom and pop shop here with great attention to detail. wishing these guys the best of luck for a long running neighborhood staple. "

  • "This fresh food to table restaurant has seasonal specials and simple, well prepared dishes. There are many options on the menu for those avoiding gluten. All the vegetable sides were well received by my family. For entrees, my family enjoyed the chicken dish, the hanger steak, pork chops, french dip and salmon. "

  • "Cheese & charcuterie board was the first, and best, thing we ordered! That was followed by a salad with Tahini dressing (take it or leave it), short rib sliders (could have been SO good on the brioche bun with horseradish sauce, but meat was very tough) and spinach flatbread (great except, in my opinion, too much spinach). Waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and passionate about the food. Bet this spot will be awesome in the summer! Wonder if they will but any tables out front ...?"

  • "Went for dinner with a friend on a Wednesday night. Everything was great. The owner came over and asked if you liked the food, service and if there was anything we they could do better - we honestly said no, it was fabulous. The space is cute, feels like a neighborhood favorite already."

  • "UNITE is a popular restaurant, good food priced moderately. The dual track , vegetarian and meat, is practical, anyone can find a dish she will enjoy. Street parking can be a challenge, valet avaiklable."
    Dined on 5/6/2014
  • "Food was very good but once we got the check we found that two drinks cost more than what was shown on the menu. It turns out the restaurant charges more for drinks when they are on ice because they pour more liquor in the glass. This all fine except they never mention it on the menu and when we asked them to explain they were quite rude. I have no problem paying for whatever I buy, I just want to know ahead of time how much it is going to cost. I will not be going back to this restaurant because of their attitude. "

  • "This was just a fun evening at dinner. Decor was very unique and it felt like we were at a very trendy restaurant. Our waitress was laid back and friendly. She appeared just when we needed her but was not overbearing. Food was great. We had flatbread appetizer that was piping hot when we got it. One of our party had a house salad which was extremely fresh and we all had to try it after we saw how good it looked. For entrees we had the hanger steak and ribs. All were perfectly done. The fingerling potatoes were fabulous. We were trying to share them between us, but we all wanted more than our fair share. Even thogh we were just a couple of blocks on the West side of the Kennedy, it felt like we were miles from downtown Chicago. "

  • "Unite Urban Grill is a relatively new neighborhood spot in West Town. It was our first time dining and the service was fantastic, the food was great and the menu was perfect for anyone looking for variety. We enjoyed the Ribeye and the Pork Chops which were both cooked perfectly and were delicious. There were multiple, shareable sides to choose from which were everything from your standard French fries to unique and flavorful options like faro and cauliflower or Quinoa salad. It was really a great option for a causal, but delicious dining experience! And dessert was great too! "

  • "What a great find. Unite had the best veggie burger I've ever had and a fabulous meat burger too. The brussel sprouts were roasted with pistachios and super tasty. The people were nice, attentive without being overly present, and helpful. They want you to have a good time :) Quiet enough to have a conversation. Overall a great experience. Highly recommend."

  • "I had been there before and really enjoyed it, and this visit was less than impressive. We were a party of four and the two men both ordered roast chicken and they liked it just fine, although, they thought it was perhaps a bit small. Anyway, after a few apps, my friend and I were not hungry and just split a burger. It was served 15 minuets after our husband's meals were and there was nothing on it. Very disappointing. Usually, if the waiter screws something up, like forgetting to put our order in, there is at least the offer of a dessert on the house. He didn't even appear to care, after he told us he forgot to put our order in."

  • "Picked this due to the proximity to an event we were attending earlier in the evening. Walking through the door we found a vibrant and welcoming environment. Once seated, staff took us through their libations and starter offerings. Once settled in with drinks, staff takes us on a journey for our main course, so many incredible offerings. It's agreed that this dinner is the most memorable and satisfying in a long time. I highly recommend Unite Urban Grill. From the moment we walked though the door until we left Unite did not fail to surpass expectations. Upon leaving staff informed us that they would soon be open for bunch, looking forward for a return trip for brunch!"

  • "A hidden gem, Unite opened under the radar late last year and we stumbled upon it by accident. Interesting menu of simple, well-executed plates spanning myriad tastes to satisfy the meat-n-potatoes guy (yours truly -- Unite's hanger was the best steak I've had in a while... at an excellent price) and more eclectic eaters (the gf loved the salmon, cheeses, wines). To top off a great meal, the owners and staff were exceptionally welcoming, friendly and helpful. An excellent experience!"
