The Union Kitchen Restaurant, a Houston favorite, excels with "delicious" food in a warm atmosphere. Our lunch menu offers a wide selection of burgers, pizzas, wraps and entree salads. At dinner, the menu highlights steaks, chops, chicken dishes and seafood. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday and features four different styles of eggs Benedict, a variety of omelets, a build-your-own Bloody Mary bar and carafes of mimosa.

At the union Kitchen outdoor dining is a year-round event with ceiling fans and air coolers for hotter days and heat lamps for cooler nights. Just perfect for enjoying an wonderful meal outdoor.

The Union Kitchen offers ice cold draft beers and a huge selection of American and International wines. Imagine a place where while enjoying some Mimosas you can order eggs Benedict and watch your favorite sporting events; and all in company of friends and family.

The Union Kitchen restaurants are by far my favorite! You get such a great variety on the menu! There’s something for everyone! And if you’re looking for a Sunday funday place to start your day...THIS IS IT! I highly recommend the Nutella doughnut holes and the crab cake eggs Benedict. Really you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. It’s all amazing! As well as the staff. All super friendly and excited to be at work!

We went there at 5:45 so it was not crowded. The food was excellent and our waiter was attentive. Not sure how it would be during the evening rush hour but it was great for us. We had a two month old with us and they were very accommodating to that.

The first waiter we had was so SLOW and we waited over 20 mins for our drinks. When I mentioned this to the managers that immediately fixed the situation and our new waitress was AMAZING. The managers made sure the rest of our visit was top notch and that we were happy customers. We were! The food is always good and the drinks. Service at the bar never disappoints either!

I was really looking forward to this, but I must confess the dinner did not live up to expectations. Brussels sprouts were awesome, but the pasta dish was watery and not all that satisfying. My wife’s salad was no better than I could make at home.

The food was awesome. I loved my special, Korean barbecue eggs benedict. My aunt would have liked a few more non-egg choice items for brunch: there aren't many so know that if you aren't an egg lover. But, the wait staff was awesome and the food was delicious.

Friendly service for early dinner but the kitchen must have been having an off-day.. The only fresh fish on the menu was so rubbery as to be practically inedible. To the restaurant's credit, they did not charge us for the fish and apologized. Too bad, the food at their Kingwood location has always been lovely.

We were referred to Union Kitchen by our hotel staff member. We enjoyed the dinner very much and our server Audra (sorry can't remember exactly but is was an unusual name) was absolutely excellent. She made suggestions, asked how the dinner was going and offered us desserts in a very friendly, helpful way. I had the Pistachio Crusted Chicken and though very good tasting, the pasta under the chicken was barely warm. Be sure to ask that you entre be served hot if you like it that way.

I love this place! How can one make a chicken sandwich special? I mean, you’ve had one, you’ve had them all. But their chicken and avocado sandwich with the jalapeño bread is amazing! And the sriracha aioli that comes with the chips is insanely addictive. I can’t get enough. The fried chicken and biscuits on the brunch menu is also delicious! The location in Washington has a great atmosphere - I love all the windows. The service is always great. This has become my favorite restaurant in Houston.

Dinner was good and it’s nice to have a tablecloth meal from time to time. Prices are good and there’s a good drink and wine menu. It wasn’t very busy so it was a relaxing meal. Our server was a bit stone faced so that wasn’t great but he was attentive so no major complaints us there

The food was COLD and the cooking oil needed to be changed. After speaking with the manager they re-made the food. However, it was more of the same and this time the food didn't have any presentation, i.e. waffles were not cut into fours sprinkled with powdered sugar topped with fruit and the so called split chicken breast was chicken tenders (STILL over-cooked with tons of batter). Possibly this was a bad day but I don't plan to return to re-affirm or not. I can say the waiter tried his best, but there was obvious lack of operations including but not limited to management. They should have ensured the food was prepared according to their company expectation which should be consistent with the customers. EPIC FAIL...the Kingwood location is so much better and what I consider EXCEPTIONAL.

First time visitors to The Union Kitchen. Very pleased with the overall experience. Good location and atmosphere. Lots of windows and ability to see all around. Free valet parking (do this as there is not much parking in the area). Great menu offerings, all at reasonable prices. Had the peppercorn crusted Ahi tuna and meatloaf, along with caesar and wedge salads. All were good, including the complimentary bread. Very reasonable prices. Aaron (server) was super. Will definitely return and bring family/friends next time. Want to try out other menu options.
