Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always great, but upon realizing we had a groupon, the service was not very good. The big guy - loud and obnoxious, was pretty busy and not fond of having a 9pm party of two. Sorry, bud, it's a Saturday night! There just wasn't much attention given to my self and my husband and I feel the waiter was done, or felt like being done for the night. We always enjoy the food, but this being the second time a waitstaff made the experience questionable to do again, so we choose not to go back. There are plenty of places that value a patron in a higher regard than Unums, Sorry, Unums. Get some staff that are people friendly and we will be back!"

  • "Just one block off of the main drag is this well appointed dining gem. . The service is super, the wine list is great and the food is simply wonderful! This resturant has a small but vibrant and varried menu. Unums offers a selection large enough to accomadate most but small enough that the chef can master each dish every time. A refreshing change from a menu that tries to appeal to many people it can't possibly be great!"

  • "Me and my wife were here with some friends for Dinner on a Sat evening. The rest had its own parking lot ( thought gets full easily I think). We arrived on time at 7:30 pm, there was a Groupon of $69 for $109 wirth of food and drinks. My wife is a vegetarian and had limited options ( eggplant and eggplant again) but the ambience looked good. There were couples, groups of four and also a group for birthday celebrations. The food is a little pricey ( what do you expect froma $$$ restaurants //) but well presented."

  • "A great restaurant for a special meal. All four of us enjoyed our dinners. The sea bass encrusted with pistachios was superb texture and flavor. The roasted pear salad was adequate for two to share."

  • "My wife had the Cioppino and myself the Duck. After tasting her dish I wish I got the same. I want to go back just have my own dish! I can't say enough about all of the staff and how they really know the definition of service. I love how the tables are not so close that you can have a private conversation and not feel like you have to yell to be heard. The atmosphere is a delight, not overly lit and not so dark you struggle to read the menu."

  • "had given my husband a groupon gifst for this restaurant - had hard time getting a reservation for a Sat night - went thru Open Table and that worked well - Unum's has a nice cozy atmosphere and drinks were good but we found it very expensive to dine there and the food was not as good as one would expect at the prices charged. We loved Walter the waiter! i'm a good cook so i recognize value the efforts of the chef in a restaurant!"

  • "Good Food although menu was limited. Evening special expanded it but at a price. Overall a great place for a special occasions as to me it is too expensive for a few times a month. Our bill for four even with a Groupon (worth $218) exceeded $190 including the tip. Meaning a value of over $400 dinning for 4. Bottom line good food and we had an awesome server from Providence but pricey."

  • "Used Groupon from Christmas. Heard this was an outstanding place. Been by a few times - never went in. It's like dining in Boston Back Bay or other quiet neighborhood. Service was great and attentive. Quiet Jazz music in background. Open Kitchen and view of prep area made you feel right at home. Just the right amount of food for us. No doggy bag. Didn't get apps but they looked great. Did get chocolate cake for dessert. To die for! Sherbert ice cream and real whip cream. We came in a 5:30 PM with glass of wine and dessert out by 6:30 PM."

  • "Seems Unum's takes having a busy res't for granted. The bartender, wait staff and the food were all mediocre at best. The simple question is would we go back and the unfortunate answer is No."

  • "My husband and I had a 7pm reservation at Unums. We enjoyed a drink at their beautiful free-form granite and stone bar. Drinks were great. Service was great. I would even come by for drinks only some time! We waited 10mins to be seated. My salmon was perfect and so was my husbands filet minion. The service was excellent. Ambiance was wonderful . The wait staff was very attentive without being intrusive. The prices are on the high side (I considered giving a 4 star and not 5) but after eating at many other places with prices just as high and being disappointed, I would say that Unums is first rate. If you're lucky enough to find a Groupon then grab it. But if not try it out anyway. I think you will come back."

  • "Food and service were amazing but service fell off slightly once 9pm hit, which was slightly disappointing. Although it seemed that the change in service was due to the fact that they were beginning to close for the night in about an hour. Overall, we would go back again."

  • "The drinks were fine.The soup and salads were delicious. My husbands chicken statler was great. However, my lamb chops and spinach were too salty. I like some salt for flavor but this was too much."

  • "We had friends coming to Nashua to see our new condo and go out to dinner. I picked Unum's because our friends particularly like seafood and i know Unum's is consistently excellent. We got a window table in the corner, which was perfect because it was quiet and just our space. The waitress was terrific, the dinner took awhile to come out, which was just what we wanted. We felt relaxed and the food and presentation were fabulous. Our friends were very impressed."

  • "This place has a reputation for being expensive. Especially from the younger folk:) My husband and I had a very nice dinner here. Our waiter was great and personable. He made a few recommendations and we were pleased with what he said. We split the mixed green salad and I had the Seafood Cioppino, delicious.... pricey but a very generous portion. Easily something you could split and have the luxury of trying there salads, Apps & desert. Great atmosphere to boot! The uncouth Martini was also a hit!"

  • "We sat at the bar because our reservation was late. Bartender was amazing - personable and right on when needed. Food choice was not good - very dry and overpriced for what you get. I think the menu has good choices but is very overpriced for the meals. We had some apps because the food was not great and sent it back. Apps were ok. Might go back for a drink and a snack but probably not for dinner. Dining room is wide open with lots of noise and very little privacy so I wouldn't recommend for a romantic evening with a loved one!!"

  • "My husband and I had an enjoyable evening but we were very disappointed when our server informed us that the delicious sounding Prime Rib special had run out ~ we had 7:00 reservations! Which left us scrambling to choose different meals. My husbands Cioppino was very good and full of seafood and a plentiful serving which he was unable to finish it. My Ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and they honored my request for garlic mash but when I am out for a special evening I rarely order a dish that I could prepare at home - it left me still craving the Prime Rib.."

  • "It is the fifth, but possibly the last, time I have been to this restaurant. The first time was excellent.the second time good. It has not improved since then. Last night's meal was a huge disappointment. I think they sold too many Groupons."

  • "We ordered the Earthquake wine (fantastic) and had the Filet with mash and asparagus and separately Salmon with couscous and spinach! Delicious!!"
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "For both my appetizer and entree I ordered the specials: tempura scallops ($16) and sea bass ($36). Surprisingly both dishes were served on a bed of limp lettuce and both had about as much flavor as the cheapest McDonald’s burger. The scallops, though smothered in batter, were certainly not tempura and the sea bass and its accompanying battered (presumably) vegetables were equally bland and unappealing (despite both dishes having very interesting sauces). To make matters worse, the soda machine broke halfway through the meal and they were unable to serve sodas and of the 3 desserts only one was still available as listed (what kind of restaurant runs out of ice cream?)"

  • "A Groupon offering got us to Unums for our first time and we are delighted! The restaurant is comfortable, inviting, and actually quiet enough to talk though filled with happy diners. The service was outstanding and the food excellent. We will return."

  • "My goal with Groupon or Living Social coupons is to try a new place and hopefully find a gem to which I will return. Sadly, I won't go back. Not that it was bad, it was just ok, and not a good value. The oyster app was cooked with too much butter and not seasoned well. The salads, grilled romain and chopped were very good. The filets were good, but had way too much salt, and my medium came out closer to rare. I ate around the outside and left the middle for my wife. There were no intriguing desserts so we skipped that course. The cost was $180 including tip and two drinks, and I had a $30 coupon. Very expensive for food that was just ok."

  • "Four adults, one child. Friday evening dinner, 6:30 PM Nice atmosphere Slow Service - I hour wait for food to arrive. Our waiter was pleasant and courteous, but not enthusiastic. It seemed that he would rather have been doing something other than waiting on us. My entree was served cold - I sent it back for reheating. I ordered a second glass of wine. When our waiter came back to check on us after about fifteen minutes, I said, "did you forget my wine". He apologized and said that he would get it. A few moments later, he brought the second glass of wine. We were surprised by how high the bill was. Bottom Line: Lovely restaurant with nice atmosphere and above-average food. Very slow service and poor overall value for the money."

  • "We used a groupon for a meal for two. We started with the cheese plate, it was delicious. I would get one of the scallop choices instead though. I got the house red, a chianti, which was perfect and the size of the serving was also great. I got the hanger steak and my husband got the bone in ribeye. The hanger steak was cook to my request and included a natural fed angus beef, tacu-tacu, corn bisque, zesty latin-style tomato puttanesca & tempura rings. The presentation of my meal was great! The ribeye came with mashed potatoes and asparagus with a choice of sauce. The ribeye was a little fatty, but the meat that was there was delicious. The ambiance was nice, wine bottles part of an open kitchen, etc. I would recommend it to everyone."

  • "Two of us tried many things: the special crab cakes (3/5), special scallop - deep fried with basil (5/5), roasted pear salad (3/5), eggplant involtini (4.5/5). Yes, not done yet, for entrees we had the duck which as okay (3/5) and the chicken carbonara (4/5). When in Nashua and looking for a very good, higher priced meal I would go to Unums, but usually not before Surf. For example, the duck was good but not special in any way, average for a restaurant of this caliber. The same could be said for the crab cakes. While they are comparable, Unums was not as consistently good as Surf. Unums will make most items gluten free, but we did not require that. Also for some folks a large advantage of Unums is that it has its own parking lot."

  • "My wife and I dined here on our anniversary . The service was excellent as the waiter knew the menu and was always there but not intrusive . My wife thought the scallops had a very fishy taste and the risotto was like wallpaper paste . My steak was good but chewy so not great . The cocktails were above average . The cake was cold and dry .We thought the restaurant was better than a 99 but did not live up to our expectations . The noise from the kitchen was intrusive to table talk . Lots of pans dropping and cooks yelling at each other . We felt the restaurant has tons of potential but falls short of perfection ."
