    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!

    Outstanding food and service! An excellent choice to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We were treated with SUPERIOR service from everyone we engaged with....down to the warm good-byes from the staff as we left. Very refreshing! The center cut filet was AMAZING as were the sides, salads and the crock of French onion soup!

    Union House keeps getting better in both service and food. I had one of the best tenderloins, perfectly cooked and seasoned, that I’ve had in a long time. My wife had the pork tenderloin, tender and cooked to perfection. The service was even better. Highly recommend Union House, just don’t tell anyone. 😉

    The Union House is a gem of a restaurant with not your ordinary menu. We enjoyed a very good and thick pork chop served tomahawk style and a special of a white fish (Oono?) from Hawaii served over a pesto risotto. The wine was first rate and we shared a large schaum torte for dessert. The service was attentive and cheerful.

    Superb in every way. Excellent food - we had the bone in ribeye and scallops and both were perfectly prepared with a presentation that made it obvious the restaurant cares about the details. Our server, Stella, was attentive and anticipated our needs. The atmosphere is elegant supper club and we will certainly return.
