The Union Kitchen (Bellaire) Ratings and Reviews
I ordered the beef tenderloin medallions with pasta. there were 2 very small pieces of horrible meat - not tenderloin for sure - buried in tons of tasteless pasta. I could not eat it. we had two entrees, 2 glasses of wine and one mixed drink and the total was over $100. bathrooms were unavailable because staff was changing. Will never be back.
Wrong wine was brought out (pretty obvious as I ordered a Pinot Grigio and a Pinto Noir was brought) after about 20 minutes, server told us that she had dropped the pad she wrote our order on and couldn't remember what half of the table ordered. We asked for bread and three pieces of bread were brought for four people at the table, had to ask for more and it seems like an inconvenience. We were taking out friends that flooded for an evening where they didn't have to worry about anything, but we seemed to have to ask for everything. Not impressed. Won't go back - too many good restaurants with good service in Houston.
We were hungry from flood clean up and Union Kitchen stayed open to provide us some food. We value having a local restaraunt that responds to the needs of the neighborhood. The food is always great and the service fabulous. I can't imagine Bellaire without Union Kitchen.
We went with a group of 11 for the restaurant weeks menu. Had reservations and they were prepared for us. Everyone was delighted with food and service, enjoyed the comfortable ambience, staff were friendly and helpful..including being helpful to one person on a walker. Many had not been there before and I think will return sometime on their own. Good variety on the set lunch menu and very generous portions..hardly needed dinner that night :)
Friendly staff and delicious food. What more do you need to have a successful dinner? This place had both. We went on a Tuesday night and it was wonderful. Good price for great food. I had the pizza, but stole some of my husband's appetizer and seafood main dish. It was all so good! Great wine selection, too.
Bellaire Location: Love this place! It stays busy but the staff is never inattentive and the food is delicious. Rob was SUPER sweet and kind to our table. My 13 month old niece was with us and he treated her like a Queen. They are kid and family friendly...I'll definitely keep coming back!
We love Union Kitchen, our neighborhood restaurant and bar. Service at the bar was excellent. A bit disappointed in the arugula and pancetta pizza as there was not much of either on the pizza. Our fault, we should have sent it back and I know they would have dressed it up, no questions asked!
We are loyalty members, so we like to get here early and sit at the bar and enjoy the perks of being a member. Always fun meeting other people, too. We started with cocktails - the Tropical Storm (with Mt. Gay Black Barrel Rum) and a Craig's Mexican Martini (really interesting version of a margarita "neat", but not really a margarita, if you know what I mean because I am not sure I even know what I mean). Apparently "Craig", the namesake, is the beverage overseer person for UK. Anyway, just try it!
For our meals, we had the crab cakes and one of their "meal" salads. Both were excellent.
Went for brunch meeting with a friend. I had the Eggs Benedict with Crab Cakes which was superb and generous. Juan, our waiter made sure that our Mimosa glasses stayed filled and that we were satisfied with our cuisine. The crowd was energetic but we were able to converse at our table for 2. My friend, who lives in the neighborhood bought a Union Kitchen membership at Juan's offering. I will definitely return sometime. All of the staff were helpful and friendly.
The menu here is diverse - lots of great choices. We had the carnitas potstickers to start - tasty and well presented.
Our entrees were the pork chop, burger , meatloaf and Parmesan crusted chicken. We all enjoyed our dishes.
Our server was friendly and helped with suggestions. Not crowded for a Saturday evening. Unique music selection with some old rock tunes.
Overall we enjoyed the evening. I would recommend it.
We had a party of 7 and the waitstaff was helpful and attentive. Our food arrived timely and fresh. In particular, I had the crab stuffed baked jumbo shrimp with grits and a habenero sauce. Unmistakably good. The burger were really good too. We will definitely return.
We went for Mother's Day and the place was packed. I urge you to make reservations for days like this. The wait was an hour, but they offered cold water and samples while we waited. I had the beef short ribs and they were really good. All the food is good and the servers are incredibly friendly. Any of their Italian dishes are also good.
The management of this place is very professional.
