Enjoyed some of the biggest crawfish ever last Sunday evening. Others in our party ordered pizza and meatloaf and ate every bite and reported it was all great! And that was after an assortment of appetizers and before some beautiful and tasty desserts. Can't wait to go back!

Due to the lengthy illness and recent loss of a family member plus the onset of the Coronavirus, we had no plans for our 25th anniversary, so we went out to have a quiet (not fancy) dinner at Union Kitchen. The service was extremely slow, the food was ok and no one did a thing to elevate our experience for the evening as less than average, except allowing us to select our table. I wasn't expecting anything over the top, but I was hoping for engaging. It was not.

Good happy hour. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and it was good, not great, but the price was very reasonable. The mashed potatoes that accompanied the steak was great, but the julienned vegetables were too salty and garlicky. I didn’t poll my friends on how they liked their dishes, but I noticed everyone cleaned their plates.

Went for brunch. The omelette were very bland without any flavor. I placed order and food came out quick, but not hot. I won’t go back

Food was delicious... had the lobster and eggs and it was fantastic... I really like the options for breakfast here, it has it all for everyone tastings. We didn’t have the mimosas this time but that is a must. Cappuccino is also a must, strong & flavored. Love the valet parking, specially on the weekends.

We were greeted before we even reached the door as it was held open for us by a host. We were seated immediately, and our server was friendly and professional. Our entrees were hot and flavorful, and our glasses were never empty. A nice touch was the surprise brownie to celebrate my birthday. Lovely decor and ambiance; we will definitely return.

The server was disorganized and forgetful. He was friendly, but forgot things, made a mistake on an order and seemed too busy, and then when I asked for half of my meal to be put in a To-Go box, it got thrown away. It was half of the trout filet and risotto with vegetables. I was very disappointed as it was to be my lunch the next day. The server did give us the Begniets for free (after I asked him), but offered no other restitution. So I paid full price for a meal that I only got to eat half of. This is the second time we have eaten at this location, and both times we have left disappointed with the service. The location on Ella is great and we never have these issues.

The biggest challenge with Union Kitchen is the taste of the food. We ordered the wedge salad which was fine. We also ordered the seafood eggrolls which were okay; they could have improved it by using a more interesting sauce than jarred sweet chili. I had the scallops with risotto. The risotto was really good but the main part of the dish, the scallops were terrible. They weren't buttery like they should be but instead really fishy and the texture was a little off too. My husband ordered the lobster grilled cheese and tomato bisque which he said was just okay-- kinda bland. At first our service was really good-- we got there early due to a show we were heading to downtown. As the place filled up our server struggled to keep up.

Outstanding food with some additional items on the menu we have not tried before. Visit was for a business meeting and the second time we have met here. We will meet her again and my fellow board members suggested it for the next meet. We meet on Monday night so reservation not necessary but should be made thru Opentable if you want.

Server was the WORST ever. He was tall skinny young man with curly dark hair. He had NO people skills what so ever. I felt sorry for Greg the other server was trying to do the job of 2.
This young man could not bag groceries at Kroger.
I like UK and am a some what regular but if I ever get this server again I will walk out.

The restaurant is in a fairly bland modern business/condo building and the atmosphere is kind of starkly contemporary. The service was friendly enough, but almost intrusive. The food was OK but not great. Probably won't be back again.

This was our 3rd year having my department,s Christmas lunch there. The food was awesome as usual. But the service was not up the the usual standards. When seated the table had not been wiped off and no table cloth. After we finished our appetizers the dirty dishes were not removed. When the entrees were brought some dirty app dishes were left on the table. They needed to be removed to make room. The whole tabled ordered dessert but 2 choices were not available. Also a long time between courses while other tables got their food faster.
