The cornbread was great. My husband ordered a share plate of ceviche tacos and I ordered a salad with blackened salmon. The servers took a long time to take our order. Also took a while to get our food. My husbands tacos wee 2-3 bites each-total rip off. Can’t believe they would be to share. My salad came with shrimp rather than salmon. They took back the salad to correct but it took over 20 minutes for my replacement. In the meantime my husband finished his meal. No apologies from staff. Staff did not check to see if our meal was good or if we needed anything-I would have liked salt and pepper. While we have dined here quite a few times and enjoyed our food, we won’t be back any time soon.
Was here with 2 friends for early dinner. Got rsvp night before for outside tables. Perfect choice for a quick meal with friends.
Hipster Service. Casual to the point of lax.
Outstanding cheeseburgers salads and desserts and stellar service ! We will be back.
Great as always
Service was very good and food was very good too for the most part. My friend and I each ordered the Blackened Fish Tacos and each of us had 1 of our 2 tacos in which the fish was quite over seasoned. I think it was a fluke since I’ve had the tacos a few times before and they were great! It was just weird that we both had one over seasoned taco and one was great. The corn bread appetizer was AMAZING!!
For our girls weekend Union was perfect for us. Food was great, server was fantastic and the atmosphere was perfect. Thank you for the terrific experience.
Really great food, craft cocktails and service. We had a great time!
Wonderful lunch - great service and ambience along with fabulous food! We enjoyed the roasted brussels sprouts for openers and then the steak frites and sweet potato ravioli.
Great flatbreads, burgers and salad.
If the food quality matched the ambiance and service, it would be a home run.
Union is always a fun time and has the yummiest food!
Great restaurant and bar. Meatballs and Cornbread were delicious appetizers. Best dish of the night hands down was the shrimp and grits.
Good service and the food is very good, but the place is quite loud. The outdoor seating is next to the highway, plus overly energetic music, make it difficult to hold a conversation. More of a place for twenty somethings looking to party.
One of the best brunches in north county!
Union Kitchen has consistently good food and service and a great location. It was great getting out to a more normal relaxed mask atmosphere.
Very pleasant place to have lunch. Make a reservation and get a window table like I did. Nice and cool and well-ventilated. Excellent service! Very nice salad with chicken and "crispy egg".
One of my favorite places in Encinitas. Service, food and location all top notch. A bit pricey but still worth the visit
Be aware this is a dog friendly place. We sat out on the patio where someone had to bring their not one but two dogs that kept yapping and squealing and barking the entire time. Not a good birthday experience. Restaurants should NOT allow dogs in or out on a patio of a restaurant. It was like dining in a kennel!
The service was phenomenal; from the hostess to the waitress everyone was so accommodating and attentive. I loved the aesthetic of the restaurant, great place to have a friends link. The only thing I wasn’t too fond of was the food. The options were limited and the food was just ok. Nothing to be impressed by, it wasn’t bad but it wasn’t anything special.
From beimg greeted when we walked to a friendly goodbye when we left this was a wonderful experience. Great food and service!
We had a lovely meal on the outside patio.
The food and service were excellent. I had the fish tacos and my friend had a salad. It was quite noisy, but we were still able to talk.
Service is always friendly and efficient. Food is great and something for everyone.
We sat outside and it was quite loud next to the road. Was disappointed we weren’t’ on the back patio since we had a reservation. Service was excellent. Food was very good - just a little expensive for the ambiance. Very much a “bar” feel.
The food and drinks were spectacular. We ordered the ordered the ribeye, which was cooked to perfection. We paired it with the bacon mac & cheese, which was delicious. The ambiance was wonderful and our server, Megan, was exceptional. She was thoughtful and provides great recommendations on cocktails. I ordered the Vincent Vega and Miyagi. We would definitely come back again.
Great place for drinks/food w/ friends. Ahi tacos, meatballs, kale salad, sweet potato fries. All delish and great for sharing.
Nice dinner with friends - all of us had the flatiron - good for the price
We were a party of 4 and 2 of the dishes wasn’t good. Ordered the Salmon and the burger which won’t daughter and friend didn’t even get to eat half.
We went for a girl's brunch to celebrate a birthday. Highly recommend the Rita cocktail and skillet cornbread. Will be coming back again or even willing to try the Gaslamp location.
Great dinner! Salmon was perfect!
Came for Cinco de Mayo bartender told us all margaritas were $9. We ended up having a huge tab because the "Rita" was not included. I feel like he mislead us and I will never come back. Also our glass was FULL of ice so not much drink either.
Everything from the service, to the drinks, to the shim-n-grits and the sweet potato were excellent! I was sad there was no octopus, but the grits were amazing! Can’t wait to return!
Food, drinks and service were amazing!
The food was outstanding
We particularly enjoyed the breakfast flatbread
Our entrees were so delicious- ravioli and salmon. The desserts were scrumptious. The chocolate flourless dessert is 2 cupcakes w/ cream. Yum!!!
Had a fantastic meal and dining experience! Our server was exceptional
