The outdoor patio was beautiful with effective heaters. The food was delicious, presentation outstanding and service wonderful. The wine list offered great variety with reasonable price range. Checked out indoor space and we thought it took all necessary adjustments to make it safe and felt comfortable going back and eating indoors.
Was as perfect as can be service abeyance food desert wine
Consistently excellent food, service and ambiance.
As always, one of New Haven's best restaurants and that is high praise.
the atmosphere, service and food are extraordinary; it never disappoints!
Ive found my home away from home!!
My husband and I were there for dinner, but it is a nice lunch place as well. Everything at this restaurant is good. It is known for its raw bar items, which I did not order this time. I oredered l'escargot and for the main course a pan fried snapper, both excllent. My husband had a veal chop, and he said it was excellent. For dessert we had their famous hazelnut-chocolate cake.
They hava a good although short wine list, which offers a suitable wine for every occasion, and they offer champagne by the glass.
The restaurant is a large room with a high ceiling, and the tables were far apart.
This restaurant was particularly nice to go to now with fewer customers there because it was quiet. When the place is full, the noise level can get to the level that it is hard to have a conversation at the table.
Great food, great service! Would recommend the Chef's Tasting menu and wine pairing.
The scallop pasta and chocolate crepe were both amazing.
Very nice place for Sunday Brunch!
Great experience with good friends on the open air patio. Meals were a filet that was perfect. Grillet Halibut also perfectly done. Finally the third meal was gnocchi also exceptional. The corn soup app was delicious too. Great experience .
Great menu and service!
We had a fabulous dinner all around! Food, service and atmosphere were all wonderful!
Service, food, ambience all great. Flavorings in French food very memorable. Will return and recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Pleasant outdoor setting, even in a city environment, for a midday brunch. Good food and service. Liked the menu and choices.
An exceptional experience. Great room, excellent food and service.
We loved the experience here and will return to try other menu items as the 3 course $79 special was amazing. The service is unmatched, the food delicious, and a historic building with a wonderful history also adds to the zest of the
Union League Cafe. Everyone must dine here to experience what a really superior restaurant is like.
Excellent food and service. Fabulous drinks and wine list.
We celebrated Renee's 60th birthday at ULC. As usual the staff was superbly accommodating and professional. The food and drinks are second to none in New Haven, and I should say the entire state of CT. The ambience is lovely! We have always enjoyed our experience at Union League and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking a top notch dining experience. Tutti Bravi to the entire staff!
Dinner at Union League is always outstanding ... food, service, atmosphere
A quiet tuesday night near the fireplace was the occasion of our 50th anniversary of meeting in New Haven. We wanted a special, memorable meal with impeccable, warm service, and found just what we'd hoped. Wild boar osso bucco with scrumptious polenta and duck a l'orange--dishes we can't get where we live.
Salmon and scallop dish was amazing. Also there is a gluten free chocolate dessert that was just perfect.
First came to UL in 2013 and continue to visit. Food is always amazing but we also love Dennis who we will request every time. Recently we brought 2 friends for a birthday and they loved it as well.
This was a colleague’s work anniversary. The anniversary chocolates you provided were a wonderful surprise. Thank you!
As always an incredible experience!
Took clients to a holiday lunch. Excellent service, very good food & good for conversation. I hate loud restaurants - this was perfect
Excellent food and ambiance and was a nice compliment that the waiter knew the history of the location and the story behind the unique painted window scenes.
Great job, once again, folks. We have not been there for New Year's Eve for a few years, and was glad to see that Union League still is at the top of the list for special occasions. It was a little loud, as we were two tables over from the band. But the food and service more than overcame that inconvenience.
Phenomenal meal as always. Great service. Pairings made this NYE Dinner one to remember.
The "Frenchness" of the ambience and service was a pleasant surprise to the European visitors after the intial delight at the menu. Generally outstanding except for being rather noisy in the main dining room. Very attentive wait staff. Super wine list.
First time visitors will be returning.
The food is simply wonderful as is the service. Despite how elegant the restaurant is, the staff is very conscientious to never make you feel out of place, if you are not terribly knowledgeable. I highly recommend the pate en croute!
As usual a great experience
Such civility. It is just outstanding in every way. The food, servcie and atmosphere - it just delivers on all counts.
Always fabulous ambiance!! The Union League is a landmark restaurant in New Haven not to be missed.
Wonderful atmosphere, very attentive service. Can't say it was the best meal I've had out, however it's a special and lovely place. Will return
This is one of the finest fine dinning restaurants in the heart of New Haven next to Yale.
Owners and service is excellent and numerous French and other options to enjoy.
Lovely atmosphere and terrific for special occasions like anniversaries and holidays as well as business lunch or dinner..
Excellent spot. Service was perfect, tables amply spaced to have a private conversation but close enough to feel like a bistro/cafe. Lovely and lively room. Food was very good - could have been seasoned just a touch more but otherwise delicious. Definitely will return.
Celebrating our son’s 25th bday. Food and service phenomenal! Dennis, our server, was on point and full of fun facts ! Thank you to all for making our evening a memorable one!
We had a lovely meal with great service. Everything was wonderful, and the restaurant was decorated so beautifully for Christmas.
My husband and I had dinner here with my sister. Everything was top notch. The service and food was outstanding. Would definitely recommend this place for special occasions. It is also reasonably priced.
We loved it!! It was a surprise evening for me because I hadn’t felt well. So he proceeds to take me to a movie and then we end up at this lovely, upscale restaurant for dinner!! I was the only one concerned that I wasn’t dressed up! We were brought to an intimate, quiet spot where we had the most delicious cocktails made to order! Our waiter was so professional and gracious and warm!
I ordered the prixe fix meal and my husband had duck and escargot, so delicious. I had Dover sole and I’ll be dreaming of it for a long time!
We will return!
