Was crowded and loud so I am glad I requested a quiet corner in the back. Good menu. Good service and food. Priced slightly above average for similar restaurants. Not disappointed by anything. Good neighborhood restaurant in strip mall.

Valentine’s Day dinner. Great food. Good wine list. Server was very pleasant but not very well trained.

We happened to book this restaurant because we had to be somewhere near by and boy were we pleased. It was Valentine’s Day and they had some fabulous specials. We had the surf and surf which was delicious. And then the chocolate basket for dessert which was amazing. The first thing I did when we left was to look up other locations because I will definitely return. Luckily they have one near our new home. Can’t wait to try it.

This Union Kitchen failed miserably for me and my friends. I’m not a complainer. But our food was cold, service was minimal, and management was rude. The food had a good taste but really was cold. A cold waffle! They also forgot to put topping on it. Benedict’s had about a tablespoon of hollandaise and eggs were over cooked. Server was not very friendly and when asked for the manager he came and said you have to talk to corporate for that and walked away. (I asked about a coupon that was not honored). The Union on Ella is “over the top” friendly, warm, and delicious. Would never go back!

The only downside was that it was very loud, even though the restaurant was not full. Other than that, we had a great visit.

We had a lovely time at The Union Kitchen in Memorial. The food was really good. Three out of four of us ordered the Red Snapper Special, which was flavored and prepared just right. The spinach and artichoke dip was also devine. We had a very friendly and attentive waitress who also made a great recommendation for a Pinot Grigio that went perfectly with the Red Snapper. She also was very accommodating with all our particulars, like subbing crab for shrimp on the entrée and sauce on the side, etc. Finally, the dessert selection was impressive. We shared the lemon cake which was not too sweet and very tasty. We will definitely be back. The atmosphere in the restaurant is nothing special, but the food and service are always great and it's a wonderful choice for an enjoyable night out in the hood!
