We had a business lunch that required a lot of discussion. Waiter was stopping by and checking as needed with limited interruptions. Excellent service, good food, quiet. Recommend.

Three couples met for Sunday brunch which we never before experienced at Union Kitchen. Not only was the food delicious, it was very well priced.

We asked for a quiet table and were accommodated by our request. Our server was wonderful and he and other staff were really attentive. We’ll definitely be back soon.

Great neighborhood place. They have redone their menu and updated some items while maintaining some local favorites. Great service. You will always get a good meal.

Food was really good. Got a pizza and lobster quesadilla. The only thing that we did not like were all the flies inside the restaurant we had to continously shoo away.

Food and service were good. Only complaint was that dishes were not clean. Waiter was quick to change out two different dirty serving pieces. Someone needs to check the dishes before they are placed on the table or brought out for tea.

Tried this location with two friends and overall it was not good. We had 3 different waiters tend to us, my friends order was messed up two times, so she didn’t end up eating at restaurant. Hallway area between kitchen and bathroom reeked!

Excellent menu choices for the Restaurant weeks menu. We loved all the dishes. Entrees were flavorful and enticing. Lemon cake dessert was a standout. Terrific alligator appetizer was a highlight.

We are outside on the rare July day of low humidity And pleasant temperature. It was very lovely. We ordered the hamburger and the short rib. The short rib was excellent, but the accompanying mashed potatoes were somewhat gluey.

The hamburger was really good, the truffle fries were not as good when they cooled off. I enjoyed the truffle salt,but my husband prefers regular salt. Perhaps a choice should be offered.

Of course we will be returning as The Union Kitchen is a neighborhood favorite

The service was excellent.

Food was really good! Different than the Union Kitchen in Kingwood, for sure. Service was a bit slow, but I think they were missing a server or two. We weren't in a hurry so that was fine with us. Used Travelzoo for this and glad we did! Great value doing it this way.

My food was lukewarm but decided not to send it back. The service and atmosphere was good. My friend visiting from out of state really liked her chicken meal. My only other complaint, was this little gnat flying around our food. I tried getting it but it was faster than me and I didn’t want it falling in my food.

The food was perfectly prepared and the service was beyond awesome. The only reason I don’t rate a 5 of 5 is that the menu is not as imaginative as I had hoped. Our waiter was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. In my opinion he was just short of being too attentive, so some may be put off. I loved it and will definitely go back.

Excellent! Ask for Joel. Great Union Burger cooked perfectly and The onion rings were incredible. My date for lunch (hubby) had the beef short rib grilled cheese sandwich and it was divine. We were early eaters with 11 o’clock seating so there was not much of a crowd but by 11:30 there were several people who had arrived. Great outdoor seating, great indoor seating, huge wine selection that is artistically displayed, very nice atmosphere. This is a very different vibe from the Memorial location. Both excellent, but different.

Everything was great. The only thing we were surprised about was the birthday dessert was not complimentary. I was under the impression it was due to the previous postings and pics in the past.

Nice restaurant in the neighborhood. Good food options at reasonable prices. The ambiance suffers a little from the restaurant being close to the road.

Celebrated my birthday with some family members and was very disappointed. My husband told the waiter it was my birthday (along with posting on reservation) and waiter put our desserts in the middle of the table as if we’d all share. Really?! Aside from that, the restaurant looks like it’s an old gas station, no ambience at all. Pretty sure my sister and my dinners were switched but waiter insisted it wasn’t. I had cheese ravioli with crab meat. She had lobster ravioli. Just tasted like mush. The Diane salad was very good. My mom ordered meatloaf. With onion rings?! My brother ordered a steak. Pricey item to only come with potatoes and not even a veggie. Won’t be returning.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Macadamia Nut Chicken. I thought it was delicious and I will definitely come back again to have it. My husband loved the Salmon Risotto. We had a great waiter who took care of us. We bought another couple with us for a late lunch and they really enjoyed their meals also. They had the crepes off of the Brunch Menu and the Reuben Sandwich. We will definitely go back.
