Reminiscent of a Paris brasserie it is where old world charm meets the new. Warm and welcoming to New Haven's cafe society, it is located across from Yale University old campus. The restaurant offers menu and ambiance in a casual elegant style. Always using the best ingredients of the moment, Union League Café's food combines French classical traditions with a more contemporary approach to flavors, textures and native ingredients. Local and organic fish, meats, cheeses, produce and rare specialty products from around the world help our chefs create our award-winning cuisine.

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.

Salmon and scallop dish was amazing. Also there is a gluten free chocolate dessert that was just 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.

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!
