The Union Kitchen (Kingwood) Ratings and Reviews
I was hoping for 3rd time a charm. But no, this is a mediocre restaurant in the suburbs. The food is bland, from appetizers to entrees. In Houston the variety is wide for area restaurants and this one needs to step it up. The servers are great however the chef needs to up his or her game.
Won't be returning.
Unfortunately, this was our third mediocre experience at Union Kitchen Kingwood. Our friends keep telling us how much they enjoy it, but our experiences have been that while the food is pretty good, the service is pretty slow. Our drink and food orders were also made incorrectly - vodka soda came as vodka tonic even though we went our of our way to make sure the server was aware of the distinction and one of the steaks was ordered medium rare came pretty close to well (and the remake was very much medium, not medium rare).
My reserved party consisted of nine people. We had only one server, no other servers were available to help. He was doing the best he could, however they continued to seat more people in his area to serve. I did have to ask for the manager to assist our server. The mgr came and was very polite. Our server was great too. Overall the experience was good.
We went to Union Kitchen for a friends get-together to participate in the Houston Restaurant Month for the Houston Food Bank. We made a reservation and I stated why we were coming.
When we got there, the waitress informed us that they were no longer participating. We did stay and have dinner but I was upset at their cavalier attitude toward an event I look forward to every year.
Great selection of bar bites and beer. Would like to see tastier wines for happy hour instead of the usual house wines. Would like to see cocktails made with other liquor besides house liquor. I believe guests are willing to pay more for premium cocktails offered at discounted prices for happy hour. Crab salad, & pot stickers were delicious. We had the burger with truffle fries. Very filling. We will be back.
This is our favorite restaurant for meeting friends. We live some distance north of Kingwood and don't have access to fine dining where we live, so it is always an occasion when we decide to meet for dinner. We overwhelmingly vote for The Union Kitchen when we have a reason to pick up or drop off someone at the airport or see people who also drive a distance to meet us.
We spent an hour and a half over our brunch that day and all had favorites from the diverse menus offered. The food was fresh, flavorful and plentiful and presented with artistic flair.
Or server recognized us from previous visits and was attentive and friendly but did not hover. The staff here are professional and unintrusive and helpful with menu advice when needed.
The atmosphere has a traditional style but not stodgy. It is elegant without being stuffy or overwhelming to casual diners. The pricing is reasonable and the value for our dining out dollar is very good
We consider it a neighborhood gem and look forward to each opportunity we have to visit over and over again.
All four of us chose the "Restaurant Week" menu, two having the fish and two having the veal. The fish was not good; the veal only adequate. The desserts were only so-so. The salad was the only part of the meal we all enjoyed. It would have been good value if the food had been good, but we don't feel we can recommend Union Kitchen at all, based on the food we were served Saturday night. We had out-of-town guests with us, so this was not only disappointing, it was embarrassing.
We have eaten at Union Kitchen a few times before, although it has been just about a year since we were there. It has certainly gone downhill since then.
We often come here for Sunday brunch. This time it was not satisfying. I had ordered the Lunch for Houston Restaurant Week. Food was great as always in the past but today was not what we are used to. My wife ordered the brunch menu but it seems the potato hash served was on the dry side. Matter of fact, she mentioned it the last time but thought it was just for that day.
We love to come back again but only for happy hour or dinner. Maybe the next time we can get better food to rave about. Service though is always good.
Came in to have brunch with my little guys who are under 15 and older than 7. I come regularly and always enjoy the atmosphere and love bringing little guys, because their food choices are great for all ages. The restaurant has an upscale but casual feel to it you can never feel over or under dressed.
I had a perfectly blended martini to start. Then I had the caprese salad. My husband had the artichoke dip. These were very good. Then I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. My husband had the ribs and they were very succulent.
Our server, Whitney, was excellent, knowledgeable and attentive. I love the atmosphere as well.
I lost count what number visit this was for us here at The Union Kitchen - Kingwood but each time is fantastic. Everything about the restaurant is great. The service is always great, the wines are always delicious and the food comes out perfect. We dined in last night to celebrate my wife's birthday and again, we had a wonderful time.
we had been there before and it's always delicious. Very creative dishes. We had a Father's day reservation. We usually cook for Father's day. We decided to do something different. The menu was great. We were seated almost immediately. Waitress was friendly and made sure that we had everything we wanted/ needed through out the meal. The food was incredible. MY husband loved it. The dessert was also phenomenal. We would definitely go there again on a special occasion. Not to say that we won't go there for dinner when we are in that area. It is worth the drive. It is a little on the expensive for every day but the portions are big and the food is incredible. So it is well worth it.
This is first time I was disappointed with Union Kitchen. Our reservations were at 11:15 am on Father's Day, and we waited maybe 5 minutes which wasn't a big deal. It took a while for the waiter to take our order, and then the meal took a good 30 minutes, if not longer, to arrive after we placed our order. I don't know if I can really be disappointed in the waiter or if it was because the kitchen was backed up that it took so long to receive our meal. My food was good, but my father and husband did not like their meal. My father did say something, and the waiter did take his food off the receipt. My husband, however, didn't say anything until we got home that he did not like his food. My dad had the stuff mushrooms, which had enjoyed in the past, and my husband had the Father's Day Barbeque special. My mother had a garden omlet, and she said it was okay but didn't enjoy the food like she had in the past. She also tried my father's mushrooms and confirm they were not good. We did ordered 2 desserts, and they were excellent. We were just really disappointed that the service was slow (we also waited a while before we saw the dessert tray and getting dessert was a waiting game too) and the food quality was no where near what we had enjoyed in the past.
