    Had a great evening. I can not recall our servers name, but she was perfect. This was our first visit at the new location and they’ve done a super job creating a more “upscale” environment while keeping the community pub feel. The Noise level is a bit high, but that’s nothin new, and is part of the ambiance. A lovely meal and wonderful start to our evening.

    Our 2nd visit since last week. Really enjoyed our 1st time, so we were in the area. This time I made a quick reservation on Open Table. Walked in and seated promptly. Our server Fong was polite, not as attentive as we've had. We had to each order the Beef Carpaccio again, nothing short of perfection. The layers of flavors and textures are so very satisfying. We also shared the Scotch Egg which was probably the best we've ever had, including British Pubs. Deliciously seasoned Sausage, with a perfect runny egg yoke from the hard boiled egg. Great combination. This visit we each tried a Between the Buns option, Wild Boar Sloppy Joe and Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich. I chose the sloppy joe and collard green side which was very delicious. The collards were seasoned with just the right spice, still having crunch and helped cut thru the over sweet sloppy joe. My wife said her Pulled Pork was on point, with Honey Butter Corn Bread as her side. This visit confirmed everything we felt from the 1st time. No room for dessert, but the choices sounded amazing.

    With a 4 pm reservation my husband and I ordered light fare to include shared plates of Carpaccio, mussels, scallops and tuna over kale. Every morsel was exceptional and my departure from wine to a Paloma was delightful. Amy, our server guided our dining experience extremely well and we left feeling perfectly pampered. We look forward to a repeat experience.

    I heard a lot of great things about Union Public House and couldn't wait to try it. The ambiance has a more modern feel to it with nice lighting. I see mention of a southern pub, but.. I don't see it, it's more polished than that. The noise level is a little high primarily due to the open arrangement. It's a very attractive place. The food was very good. The menu was very well put together with some traditional southern selections that have a newer culinary twist. The mussels were very delicious. The presentation on the dishes was all great. The service was really good and attentive. My only real complaint is that I made a reservation in advance and was seated by the bathroom hallway and server station. If I had come in without a reservation, then that would have been just great. But since I called in a day ahead, I would expect a better table location, that's why I reserved it.. I will go again, but will likely elect to sit outside since that was an option. The prices were very fair for the culinary experience you are receiving there. Overall a nice experience and some great food.

    UPH is a true gem in downtown Pensacola dining! Cocktails are prepared perfectly in a very nice atmosphere. We dined at one of the high top tables in bar area. Mussels are the best anywhere with lots of grilled bread. The smoked pork butt with creamed corn and sautéed spinach and the Redfish were extraordinary!! Service (Alex, female) is an excellent server, friendly and proficient . Lovely evening!!

We had someone with us who had a dairy allergy and a citrus intolerance, and our waitress was extremely aware and accommodating. She was very knowledgeable about all of the food and passionate about all the delicious flavors. We will surely return the next time we are in the area

    First time in the new location and I must say the restaurant is beautiful and well thought out. I love the partition between the sit down diners and the bar but still be able to see the bottles and bartender and hear (but not loudly) the music. Although it was late (for Pensacola) on Saturday night the staff was friendly, fun and engaging. Drinks came promptly: Riptide Amber for me=great and some “by the glass” Pinot Noir which my red wine expert wife loved. Our server, Caroline, was quick and timely but not suffocating. We had the Scotch egg which is just the right size for 2 to split as an appetizer. Next we had the Red Snapper which came served on some sautéed greens - delicate but savory too. Also a large mixed green salad with perfectly fried shrimp. Blake was not there but his signature was on everything. We loved it.

    We ordered mussels but were told they didn’t have them. I prefer to be informed if the restaurant is unable to serve a menu item before I take the time and mental energy to select something. Everyone enjoyed their meals: the lamb curry, tuna hot pot and crispy skin salmon, although the salmon was overcooked, IMHO. Still tasty with inventive garnishes. The restaurant is beautiful and the ambiance was great, but it was unusually loud

    The food was top-notch, excellent, and our server was as charming as could be. However, My father wears hearing aids and this establishment is just way too noisy for him to be able to enjoy his experience. The flooring is cement and all the hard surfaces in the restaurant just make for a frenetic experience for someone who deals with hearing aids.

    our server was super nice! I hate I couldn’t remember his name but he was very friendly and funny. The pimento hushpuppy bites were AMAZING. Our main dish was good, but not slap in your face amazing. The margarita mocktail was great & the Rose wine was great. We are not ones to send an item back due to a minor error, however the dirty martini was so awful we had to send it back — Even the olives to garnish were awful. (We were not charged for the martini after sending it back). I definitely will be back to try it all again.
