Absolutely wonderful food! The short ribs were the best we ever had and the bleu cheese crusted fillet was like butter! Super nice atmosphere and wait staff. Great place for an anniversary dinner! Oh and the after dinner drink Grasshopper was quite tasty! Highly recommend the Union House!

This was our second trip to The Union House since we had been vaccinated for Covid. We used to love dining here; however, the last two times have been very disappointing. On the prior visit, I tried the wild boar, but found it to be very dry and tough. Thinking maybe the last time was just an off night, we decided to try it again. This time, I ordered an 8 oz filet with fingerling potatoes. Unfortunately, the steak was also dry, and was covered in a very strong demi-glace type sauce. In addition, the fingerling potatoes were under cooked. We also noticed that their prices had gone up significantly. I can understand needing to increase prices as business had likely dropped off due to the pandemic, but the quality of the food also dropped off significantly. Because of this, I gave a one star rating for value as I no longer feel the quality of the food justifies the prices. We may try the restaurant again at some point in the future, but for now, we want be frequenting them like before. Very disappointing as we used to really enjoy dining there.

The lobster bisque was some what of a surprise as a Manhattan tomato base instead of New England cream base as I was expecting.

Love the bar. Bartenders are awesome, drinks are fantastic. Service was good. Ambiance was good. Food... ehe, especially for the money. I am a fine diner and expect good food that I can't or don't choose to cook at home. Was not as impressed with the food, kinda overcooked. Bread was awesome though! Had the wild boar tenderloin and a big steak. Love my capitol grill and Eddie martini's. Will definitely go back for cocktails!

Service was top notch - hostess, servers, bartenders. White tablecloth with a fun atmosphere created by the staff. Filet was great as were the old fashioneds. Maybe a little on the pricey side, but everyone is raising their prices to keep up with inflation.

It was an expensive diner but you get good quality.

Not the UH of a recent bygone era. Rushed service, seating in an area more resembling a banquet hall (this at 10 to 5 on a Saturday) and rather thoughtless preparation of two basic entries: gnocchi and Sockeye salmon. Gnocchi flavors were excellent but on the whole experienced as a formless mass of starch. The 4 ounces of salmon represented to be 6 ounces was laid along side a bright red smear of something that tasted vaguely of Sriracha; completely non-complementary. Confused the plate and palate. I’ll be generous (even though this is one of the most expensive menus in Waukesha Co.) and rate as an underwhelming and disappointing experience. I’m not trying be needlessly critical or nasty, but this was a pretty unfortunate experience that clocked in at $200. The best features were the cheese plate and grilled asparagus.

The Union House is one of my favorite restaurants. September 1st was my first visit under the (relatively) new management and new chef. The food and service was as good as ever. My husband and I were placed in a cozy booth. The downstairs dining area is small, so tables and booths are close together; which can be a bit noisy. Our server was very attentive. Our appetizers, entrees, and cocktails were delicious. I was very grateful for the complimentary martini as a result of the slight wait for our appetizers!

If you are looking for great food in a great atmosphere, I highly recommend the Union House!

This was our first visit to Union House, and we were celebrating an anniversary. We were beyond pleased with the entire experience! The quality of the food, the menu & specials were spectacular!

The service was like nothing we’ve ever experienced in our many years of dining out. From the moment we walked in, the entire staff genuinely made us feel welcome and at home. Kerry didn’t miss a beat; hands down the absolute finest server we’ve ever met! She is one of the many reasons we will be frequenting Union House!

Wife had the Gnocchi which was excellent. HOMEMADE, light and tender as it should be. Interesting combo with the baby beets and browned butter. I had the antelope (wild game) entree. Again excellent. Friends had lobster bisque which he enjoyed and very very good tuna special. His wife enjoyed a fillet, which which just a little too rare for her but very tender.

The meal did not meet expectations. We were celebrating our anniversary, and wanted an excellent meal, at a highly rated restaurant.

My steak was lukewarm when served - in fact, the plate was warmer than the steak.

My wife ordered the duck. The menu said it was to be a half-duck. It was actually two leg-thigh combinations, and was reheated.

Mediocre food at an overpriced restaurant.

Cocktail was generous and delicious. Wine list was nice with lots of good selection by the glass. House salad was ok. Scallop dish was fantastic. Half duck was disappointing. Since when does half a duck have two legs and no breasts? One leg/thigh was delicious… the other a bit dry. Nice anniversary dessert touch in chocolate. We will go back, but not for the duck. Waitress was top-notch.
