Diner Reviews
  • "We love Unums. The food is always excellent, the ambiance is nice. They are located one block off of Main Street. We think if they were on Main Street, there would be lines outside of their door every night. The lobster risotto was to die for. We are looking forward to going back."

  • "Bought a groupon for this restaurant and absolutely loved it! It's small, cozy and romantic...and the food is so good! We found the wine is more reasonable priced than avg restaurant prices. Staff is great, tables are not on top of each other, can't say enough about this place, loved it!"

  • "Great Food & Service. Pricey. If we didn't have a Groupon to use, probably wouldn't have gone."

  • "We had read a couple questionable reviews, primarily about the service. Our experience was nothing short of terrific! Food, atmosphere and our server Walter made the experience memorable. Knowledgable, funny and simply engaging! Little pricey but highly recommended!!'"

  • "The timing of the plates arriving to table was disappointing. We had barely finished our appetizer, and the main dish arrived. Considering that the appetizer was a shrimp entrée of only 3 small shrimp on a salad base, which was shared between 2 people, this obviously is a timing issue between the chef and the server. Upon completion of the main dish, one plate was collected and the person still eating was asked if they'd like to see a desert menu. Again a question of timing and this reduces the dining experience to fast food which. Considering that the restaurant wasn't full, if the intent was to move us along, you've most certainly succeeded because I'll be going elsewhere."

  • "Met by a gracious host, the nice and quiet ambience of the restaurant lived up to our expectations raised by N.H. Magazine’s “One of New Hampshire’s Top New Restaurants.” The menu did not. Some of the more interesting items shown online were missing from the actual menu. Further, while interesting, the menu lacked seasonal touches. In June, no sign of 'primavera'; there were no peas, fresh corn, strawberries, or rhubarb, etc. The waitress was pleasant, but knew neither the menu, nor the specials, nor the beer list (nor did she care that she didn't know). The quality of the food varied - from creatively and perfectly prepared (tuna tartare, Chilean seabass, risotto) to eggplant arancini where we could not taste even a hint of eggplant."

  • "After having a good experience worthy of the reviews, we tried it again on Thursday night. The place was quiet all night. Kitchen sure was not busy. The sea bass with shrimp risotto ($45 special) was a big disapointment. The shrimp were over cooked and the whole dish had a "fishy" overtone. There was no detecting the wasabi panko under what was too much sauce. Did I mention the lumpy rather than creamy risotto? What about the asparagus with woody ends? The mixed greens in the salad were more like chopped romain. My dining partner thought her steak was average. The service person was pleasant and attentive but needs to master the menu and ingrediants. Her response numerous times to questions about the menu was to read the menu back to us."

  • "The food was ok, a bit overpriced. Was an "upscale" steak house. Sides cost extra and do not come with the mail unless it is part of a special. I wanted the Filet but was informed they didn't have any because the freezer broke."

  • "We had reservations for 6 pm. When we got there the restaurant was empty so we decided to have a drink at the bar. The bartender was very friendly. I would go there again and sit at the bar for drinks and apps. Our meals were very good. I had Chilean Sea Bass and my husband had the special which was filet and lobster. Presentation was great. The restaurant decor was very nice. We will definitely go back."

  • "We uses a groupon and what a great deal. The food was fantastic and the service was awesome. My wife ordered the Chilean sea bass, I ordered the flank steak. The appetizers if the Tuna tartare and the seared scollops were impeccable. Highly recommended!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Service was wonderful, food even better! Ordered 2 apps. Bacon Jam Scallops & Eggplant Involtini. Scallops were fresh, cooked perfect, and very flavorful. Eggplant was fabulous. For entrees we ordered Cioppino & the filet. Both exceptional. Broth on the Cioppino was one of the best I've ever had. Seafood was abundant. The filet was tender and juicy, paired well with mashed potato, and grilled asparagus. Dessert - none. Our only issue. Dessert was VERY limited, only 2 choices. Sorbet or chocolate fondant cake. Being married to a baker I am surprised with the option of fondant cake. Most people cringe when they here fondant. Overall, experience was EXCEPTIONAL. Can't wait to return. Hope they have more dessert choices!"

  • "I've lived in Nashua for more than 30 years, but I confess to rarely having checked out the truly fine dining options that are around. Courtesy of a Groupon offer that I bought, I had the opprotunity to try Unum's lately, and I will definitely be back. I had an appetizer of mussels with thinly sliced saucage in a lightly spiced sauce, and I had the surf and turf consisting of a thick filet and a lobster tail, with asparagus and garlic mashed potatos in a very nice sauce. It was all prepared to perfection, and the service was prompt -- giving us ample time from our 6:45 reservation to finish in time to catch an 8:00 show over at Court Street. Desserts might have made us late, but we hadn't been planning on them anyhow. We'll be back."

  • "The food was good, however the service and pacing was not."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Even though we had made a reservation, there was still 10-15 minute wait for our table to be set up. I liked how there was seating on two levels. The lights in the room were dimmed and candles were placed on every table. For appetizers, we ordered Bacon Jam Scallops and Roasted Beets and Mozzarella Salad to share. The scallops were tender, quite flavorful, and had a spicy kick to them. We enjoyed the beets salad, which was served with greens tossed in balsamic vinaigrette and garnished with spiced pecans. For entrees, we ordered Surf and Turf (which was cooked to perfection), Chilean Sea Bass (which was lightly battered), and Rainbow Trout (which was lightly salted). We ended dinner with a Raspberry Sorbet (which was quite refreshing)."

  • "Had a groupon. Would not be dining here unless I had a groupon. Prices are extrememly high. $45 for sea bass is something have never seen in my life. Too expensive for sure."

  • "We were served by multiple staff members, and everyone took responsibility for our happiness. They even prepared an entirely new entree when the tuna was a bit more cooked than we might have liked. Our server handled the minor issue so tactfully, and made us feel very comfortable when we did not know if we were being unreasonbable. We were surprised at how flexible they were as well. The creative menu often features inspired offerings to delight any foodie."

  • "We had a few apps...Oysters and scallops - both were amazing. We also had a special Duck app which was also great. For dinner I had the sea bass which was delicious. The atmosphere is great and the house wines are really great choices."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "We devoured the tuna tartare appetizer. The broth in the cioppino was mouth watering - so yummy! The trout with lobster risotto was delicious! The duck was very good - I would have liked the outer fatty skin to be a bit more crispy. The food was served piping hot! "

  • "This "classy casual" restaurant has a great atmosphere and excellent food. Went for dinner with another couple. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Service was also wonderful. The roasted oysters are awesome!"

  • "Unums bills itself as gourmet, high quality and very up-scale. Our experience was different. The Good: * The food was pretty good and the portions reasonable. The Bad: * Unums has an open kitchen and chef was throwing cookware making awful noise * The pace was excruciatingly slow * Ordered a steak medium well and it was blood red in the center. * Ordered coffee and were served old luke-warm espresso * Food was good, but pricing was outrageous Even using a Groupon we paid too much * The restaurant significantly changed the Groupon deal from what the terms were when we purchased the Groupon and added a Saturday restriction."

  • "Ordinary food at extra-ordinary prices, this restaurant proves that high price does not necessarily deliver high quality; service is typical of what is found at popular chain restaurants; menu is limited with a wine list that is completely inadequate Restaurant is in an interesting building, but this is the only positive thing about the experience; steaks were undercooked and not worth the price, a menu that offers a variety of sauces for the steaks signals that there is a problem and something is needed to provide flavor; for dinners interested in celebrating a special event, this is not the place to go "

  • "We hadn't eaten there for several years and had high expectations, but it didn't disappoint. The menu had a wide variety and all four of us were very happy with our choices. The waiter was clearly experienced and comfortable in re routing our wine selection, a label I ended up loving. We weren't rushed. Water glasses were refreshed even after dessert, a complaint with some other restaurants. Highly recommend if you don't mind paying $$$ but it was worth it."

  • "The atmosphere, decor, bar and tables are beautifully crafted, lovely and high class. We were dressed up, but also saw people in jeans and shorts. The food really shines. One of the best meals we've had. We absolutely loved the Roasted Oysters, Grilled Romaine Salad and our waiter, Walter, suggested the "off menu" Surf and Turf, an 8 oz. filet with three huge perfectly cooked scallops covered in lobster cream sauce. This is a dish you dream about but is rarely executed well. That was not the case at Unum's. The dessert list is very limited, with only three items, one of which, the Creme brûlée, wasn't available, but they had a substitution of a Chocolate Marscapone Mousse, which was light and fluffy. Great dinner!"

  • "I have been to Unums several times, the service, atmosphere and the food is excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals, appetizers and desserts. It is a bit pricey but well worth it. You will not regret going here, I look forward to going back!"

  • "Unums provides a nice variety on their menu so all tastes can be satisfied. It is a good variety without too many options that give you menu paralysis. The service is always good with friendly and attentive staff and the host makes sure your experience is a favorable one. The quality and flavoring of the food is right on and their willingness to accommodate food allergies is excellent. The atmosphere is perfect as it fits a romantic dinner to a family dinner. I will definitely go back"

  • "We have lived in Nashua for many years, but this was our first visit to Unums. We had thought Unums was too pricey for our tastes, but the dinner and our experience was well worth it. My wife and I fully enjoyed our dinner at Unums in Nashua. The service was great and the food even better. The Seared Tuna was excellent and prepared just the way we wanted. I liked mine rare and my wife likes it well done (yikes), something many chefs find hard to accommodate. We enjoyed the atmosphere and while the noise level near the open kitchen area made it difficult to talk sometimes, we did appreciate being so close to the action. We will be back, probably seeking another well done Tuna entree. "

  • "We have had 2 dinners at Unum's and both were excellent. Lisa, our waitress, remembered us when we arrived for our second visit! Apps are filling, so be careful... you may not have room for an entrée and that would be a lose. Dinners are painstakingly prepared and each item is uniquely flavorful. Crème Brule is big - think about splitting it. This is a classy, relaxed place with outstanding service."
