    Everything was outstanding except for appetizer of one crab cake for $20. We were anticipating at least 2 crab cakes. So maybe we read appetizer incorrectly.

    Walking into the Union House we were immediately greeted at the bar and directed to the hostess. The ambiance was cozy, as there was quiet jazz playing and low lighting. Service was timely, yet we never felt rushed. The food came out slower than we were used to but is a sign of a quality restaurant allowing us to savor and appreciate each course. Our food was flawless, and delicious, from the soup to the main entree. Another nice touch was the server had a special anniversary dessert prepared without our prompting. Would highly recommend it, although the price is higher than we normally spend.

    The Union HouseResponded on January 31, 2023Thank you very much for the great review and 5 stars! Glad we could be a part of your celebration and hope to continue to do so in the future! cheers

    Service was disappointing. Our server was very slow to take our order and remove dirty dishes ( 30 minutes) and the restaurant was not that busy. Food was amazing as always. Hopefully next time we will have a different server.

    Used to frequent the Union House many years ago. Returned for the first time in roughly 15 years & was very impressed by the overall experience. The service was fantastic; everyone was very attentive! Food was also well prepared & portion sizes were more than adequate. The only minor negative was the seating space in our booth; space was a little cramped. Overall atmosphere was nice. Will definitely return again!

    Our appetizers mediocre. We had the Lamb meatballs and another one on a flatbread that I can’t remember the name of. My personal taste does not match with wild mushrooms, that’s my problem. I had the New York strip which is my favorite cut of meat and it was very tough and chewy. We had 6 Woodford reserve old fashions and they cost $126.00. Ridiculous! The apple dessert was to die for. Karen our server was delightful and had a good sense of humor. We walked out of the restaurant spending $600.00 for 4 people and not having the best dining experience I was hoping to have.

    Favorite restaurant!!! We’ll be back!!!! Had mushroom tart, stuffed mushrooms, lobster bisque and baked French onion to start. Absolutely delicious!!!! Swordfish, tomahawk steak, lobster and short ribs next!!! Can’t even begin to describe how all were cooked perfectly and seasoned to perfection!!! Finished with homemade apple crisp and Schaum torte!!! Need I say more!!! Staff is the best experienced! I’m our opinion the Union House has one of the best chefs and staff around! Beautiful experience!

    Rick the bartender and Stella the waitress were excellent!!! Appetizer, french onion soup and house salad were excellent. Bone in ribeye was slightly over done but very tasty and tender. The only negative was the pork tenderloin way over cooked and dry.

    First negative experience here as we usually have an amazing time. Food was still good, but bartender and our waiter not knowledgeable and obviously trying to hurry us out. Tried passing an old fashioned as straight alcohol on rocks with two cherries. Waitress did not know prices of specials or what was in dishes. Waitress offered other guest a birthday treat for her 80something birthday. When guest says she was full but would take it home she said she could no longer have dessert. Was slow night so they started taking down some tables that sat bare with no table clothes and it wasn’t past 8PM. Took our food to be boxed before we were done eating and brought check before food was boxed. This is atypical of our many past experiences, and disappointing on a special night out.

    We went to the Union House last minute on a Tuesday night raincheck date to celebrate our anniversary. The food (duck, elk, and cheese plate) was tremendous, all with fresh preparations. Management seated us at the most private table possible AND went above and beyond, holding the room for us until the 6:00 reservations showed up. We couldn’t have asked for a better brief escape from life, and Stella was magnificent. Thank you!
