Great little dive serving up a good brunch at a decent price. Great mimosa selection which are slightly pricy but worth it for the 1 cent refills. It’s a little crammed inside but overall decently priced, good food.
Jack was a great, attentive waiter and the manager visited with us. Bread was hot and pizzas were delicious. Wonderful evening. Thanks!
I brought a group of people to this restaurant for brunch on Saturday. It took a while, but after alerting the staff that we had a hard stop because of travel plans, they got right with it, brought our drinks and took our order. Surprisingly, our orders came out cold. I had the pancake sliders. The pancakes were misshapen and the scrambled eggs were rock hard. Why not make perfectly round symmetrical pancakes and fluffy, light scrambled eggs? Would be so much better. My wife’s French toast was stone cold. We didn’t have time to fight about the food so we ate it as it was. Others In our group were polite and ate their lukewarm food. Overall, the atmosphere in this restaurant was perfect for Saturday brunch but sort of shocked and amazed that we would have a poor food experience as it’s otherwise a nice place.
Great experience. Wait staff and management were very patient and accommodating for my elderly mom’s needs. Thank you so much for a delightful atmosphere.
Great food, great staff, great time. Manager was very accommodating, I had to change our reservation from 4 people to 9 people at the last minute and he was able to accommodate our group with no problem.
I eat here frequently and it’s usually very good. On this night, however, the service was terrible. Appetizer never came. And the pizza was not up to their standard. I was very disappointed.
I think the restaurant is very good, but very limited when it comes to vegetarian food. This is a drawback for me. I would like greater variety in this. Other than that, keep up the good work
I usually dine in at the Memorial location (which i absolutely love), but decided to give the Bellaire location a try since it’s only 3 minutes from my home. Well never again! Service was great, very nice staff! But my boyfriend and i was so disappointed in the food. Everything was either undercooked or overcooked and with little to no seasoning. Needless to say, I think I will stick with the Memorial location!
The Union Kitchen never disappoints
Service is fantastic
The food is phenomenal
Whenever we just want a good pizza or chicken fried chicken, the Union Kitchen on Bellaire is a good visit. Friendly, good food, snappy service and a neighborhood atmosphere. Some nights there is live music in the covered outdoor area as well.
UK is one our favorite restaurants. The food is always good and service is top notch. We particularly like the rewards specials. Great place !
Our waiter was quite weird. Food was pretty good!
Good food. Nice open patio. Great service. We were there for brunch and enjoyed it.
At first, the service was a little slow and our drinks were late coming to the table because they came out with our meal. There was a huge party in the same building but they weren’t even a problem. The food was fantastic and I savored every bite. Overall my experience was awesome !
I love the Memorial location and have never been to the Bellaire location before. Since this was closer for my friend we came here. Our server, Jack, was great. I wanted to try something that used be on the menu but was no longer available and he graciously asked the kitchen to custom make the pizza. He kept checking on us to make sure everything was good. The food is delicious, and I would definitely come back. Be sure to park by their parking only as the shopping center next to it will tow cars.
Brunch at Union Kitchen is amazing! Can't complain about delicious food and $0.01 mimosa refills. Their service is also impeccable - very attentive server AND manager. Not to mention the patio is dog-friendly which is great. Would definitely recommend Union Kitchen as a go-to, no-frills brunch place.
I love this restaurant when all the stars are in alignment, like when they have nice ambience outside wit a live jazz musician. The bread needs improvement - ours was grocery store white Italian bread soaked in butter. My husbands friend shrimp were small, both in portion, quality, and size of shrimp. The maitre’d who checked us in acted like she did not care whether or not we were there. Our waiter made up for that by being extremely friendly and attentive. I think this was just an off night. We’ll try a again soon.
Great food. Great service. A little loud but fine.
Prompt service great food. Packed house very loud.
This is my 4th time here and I have never been disappointed.
This friendly, upbeat restaurant never disappoints. The best calamari in town, sprinkled with a bit of feta and other special touches, without the heavy batter. Brussels Sprouts done right! Delicious food in every category from burgers to fresh grilled fish. Brunch is a winner here on weekends, with fine benedict specialties.
Wedge salad was wonderful. Crab risotto ball appetizer, shared with us by another customer at the bar, were very tasty. Service by Eric at the bar was great. Wine by the bottle prices are hard to beat.
Excellent meal on a Saturday night. Five people (all adults) and five different dishes, all delicious, from a cheeseburger to snapper with parmesan risotto, crab-stuffed shrimp on cheese grits and parmesan-crusted chicken. Nice wine list. Wonderful "Texas Lime Pie." A very nice for "upscale casual adult dining."
The two omelettes and two eggs Benedict orders were absolutely fantastic. Doughnut holes were very good but didn’t seem a little bit soggy. Really enjoying the cornbread muffins brought to the table. Did not know that they were coming so that was a big surprise. Very much enjoyed our brunch at this restaurant!
I hit noted in the reservation and then it was our sons birthday. When we were seated or during the course of the meal that was never brought up. I was kind of sad about that as that I have made special indication on the reservation that this was the case.
Great pasta dishes. Fun to sit at the bar. Jack is a fun and engaging bartender. Neighborhood gem.
Table for 6 very noisy due to other parties. Food service good; chooses limited. In the future I would stay away form lunch on weekends.
The Bellaire Blvd location is quite the scene on Sundays for lunch. It's become a hot spot for West U, Southside and Braes Heights residents. A great local eatery with a mostly "Southern Style" menu. Several benedicts to choose from plus chicken fried chicken and chicken fried steak, carnitas, seafood tacos, hangar steak, shrimp and grits, multiple salads and a variety of sandwiches. The kicker is the mimosa selection with refills for a penny. The service is very friendly and quite competent and they seem to cover the large crowd with ease; very attentive. There are lots of families with mostly well behaved kids as well as a great cross section of millennial couples to baby boomers. Everyone seems to be having a great time.
I have been to Union Kitchen several times and each time the food was terrific and delish. I recommend checking out this little Bellaire gem.
It was my very first time eating there and everything was beyond my expectations, the muffins were delicious, the mimosas were good, our waiter was very nice and he made sure he took care of us, most definitely coming back
I went to lunch with former co-workers. We all enjoyed it because of the great service and good food. I would recommend the Bellaire location highly. It was worth the drive for me. We all plan to return. You get excellent value at this restaurant.
OMG! I can't stop raving about The Union Kitchen Bellaire! It was everything you would want to experience in a restaurant. The staff especially was super great! Our Server (Claudia) and the General Manager (Tony) made us feel so welcome and comfortable. Good service is so hard to come by these days but the staff at The Union Kitchen reminded me that there are still great people out there who are willing to give great service. The food was delicious too! Hats off to everyone over there, you guys are phenomenal! Keep up the great work!!!
They were less than half full. Short staffed. The bartender waited on us. Food was ok but not up to their usual standards. Hope this is not the start of a downhill slide.
Excellent meal. I had the tuna and bok choy dish and my husband had the chicken and pasta dish. Our server was wonderful. (He usually works the bar where we usually like to sit, but no spots were available.)
Neighborhood gem. Great drinks, great food, great service.
We had a great meal and experience. The manager and staff worked to satisfy every possible need and we will be back.
The staff is very attentive, helpful and kind. Much appreciated. And the menu choices are great. We definitely are regulars.
Was quite disappointed with the food which was mediocre, presentation was careless. Was more disappointed with the service which seemed haphazard with three different servers , never knew if one was actually assigned to us. Was most disappointed that,although the host at the door asked if I was Susan, the server came and asked if we wanted separate checks and looked totally unaware when I said to bring me the check. This led to the awkward discussion about who pays which I wanted to avoid as this was a farewell luncheon for a friend. On my reservation, I had specifically requested that the check be brought to me. I had taken two nieces to the Memorial location in September, the food and service were great. If a meal at Union Kitchen is in my future, I would choose that location.
Family meal for five. A good time Eric was excellent.
I was a disappointed with the bowl of chili that I ordered. It was not what I was expecting. I think I am used to the way I cook it. My Caesar salad was delicious and my friend had the tuna appetizer which was delicious.
Excellent service-Mindy was so helpful and friendly!
