Union Hill Kitchen Ratings and Reviews

Amazing Valentine's dinner. We had a lobster bisque and the sous vide rib was 16 oz/ perfectly medium rare and and lamb with the pea purée was really really good. The dates stuffed with chorizo were sweet and salty and will come back for more!
We had some desserts that were not on the menu that the chef sent out to us. A Perfect dinner as always. Thank you Chef and Marty!

The servers were very nice, which was really the best part of the meal. Unfortunately the rest of the experience was truly unforgettable, and not in a good way. The chorizo / dates appetizer had zero flavor. The double fried chicken was completely dry (almost inedible) and the mashed potatoes had large, uncooked chunks in it. I don't mean to be a jerk about this, but the food was particularly not pleasant.
And I recommend changing the lighting...The orange and red lights everywhere made me feel like I was in Kramer's apartment with the Chicken Roasters sign blinding me with red light.

Union Hill Kitchen is our go to spot. This is truly the Chef's creation. From the front to the kitchen Chef has put in sweat equity to provide a great place to enjoy one's outing. Each dish has a story and given the opportunity to talk with to Chef, you'll be energized by his passion and love for the food and the customer.

Wonderful new menu items since the last time I came to Union Hill. They had a special of tuna tartare that was really good! They also had a 16 oz Ribeye steak that was cooked some special way that made it super tender. Amazing place, great music, the service is wonderful and I like small little restaurants.

Because my meal came out late and I mean literally 10 min later than others at my table and NO apology, it ruined the entire meal. Plus not to mention, it was freezing and had to eat with my coat on. Mushroom ravioli is in a really bland dish almost like chicken broth. With the poor service, late food and freezing atmosphere, you will NOT get me to ever go back there again.

I was super excited to go here because the restaurant has odd hours, and I had not been able to make it over there yet. However, both my boyfriend and i were extremely disappointed in the quality of the food.
Our food was tepid but the plates were hot. The flavor of the food tasted good, yet was extremely salty with basic flavors and ingredients. I eat out several times a week, and this was not worth ~$25 a plate for an entree. The chef came out from the kitchen and was loudly complaining to the hostess about problems in the kitchen which totally killed any good vibes remaining from the attractive ambience of the restaurant.
The hostess asked how our food was, and we told her about the temperature issue, and she said she would let the kitchen know. No further accommodations were made.
I am honestly shocked that the chef won several awards because besides being timed improperly, the food was just boring and did not woe me in any way. Our bill for 2 alcoholic beverages, an appetizer, and 2 entrees was over $150. I could have gotten this quality of food from a much cheaper restaurant. I would recommend dropping that kind of cash at Seven Lamps if you are expecting superior flavor and service because that is what I expect from an award winning chef and restaurant.

The noise level was very high, food was good. We were a table of 5 which arrived early and only one other couple was dining at the time. Our party had trouble hearing each other as well as our server. There are no soft surfaces to absorb sound and thing became worse as several trains passed by. Food was good for most. Ordered 4 burgers which came out a little more cooked than medium but very tasty. One burger was missing it's cheese and bun was burnt. Would go back but maybe for lunch when outdoor dining on the patio is possible.

I really enjoyed our visit to Union Hill Kitchen. The staff and Sous Chef couldn't have been nicer or more interesting to talk with and get menu suggestions/cooking techniques/spice identification from. We were there on a quiet night Christmas week. The food was well prepared and very filling and satisfying. We will go again.

There were only 2 other guests seated in the restaurant. There were 2 wait staff, yet it took 20 minutes to take our order and another 20 minutes to bring the food. We ordered salads with fried chicken and salmon, so the food prep time wasn't the issue. The lettuce wasn't fresh and the chicken and salmon were the size of a "tender" not a half breast or even a normal size piece of salmon. All in all, not a good experience.

We love UHK! The food is delicious, interesting, and full of layers of flavor. The staff are professional and warm. You can have a quiet romantic dinner or have a blast with friends. Great options to share and taste a ton of things. And....The Lamb is crazy delish...and I don't eat lamb. We love Alexis!

Fried chicken and pork always a hit with my family. Chicken is always moist and crunchy and black beans are always silky. The Negroni is delicious on the cocktail menu, I think that's a new addition. If they have it try the sous vide steak and the cassoulet both are specials and Amazing!

A hard review to do fairly. So much of the evening was great but dampened by the terrible noise across the street. The weather Friday evening was lovely & with the roll-up doors open, the restaurant took full advantage of the seasonal change. Regretfully, it also invited MARTA & the 3 freight trains to our reunion as well-the noise level of the freights stopping & starting was deafening. I would only return with a party no greater than 4 where conversations could be had without shouting. Super restaurant, tough location.

I was very excited to try this restaurant as I live within walking distance. I ordered the kale ravioli per the recommendation of the server. It had truly no flavor at all. It was such a disappointment. The "sauce" was translucent, like water. My boyfriend ordered the ropa vieja. It definitely was not what we expected as it had pasta (not listed on menu) in it which is not how ropa vieja is typically served. However, it at least had nice flavor. Our meals were incredibly overpriced. We both left wishing we had take our $120 and cooked at home instead.

Please understand that I was there for a Saturday lunch, and they seem more oriented to dinner. That said, this is a charming spot in an area that desperately needs them. Service was good, and the staff very friendly. What I was not quite ready for was that the chef evidently wants to put a personal twist to things. On this particular day, I ordered a Cuban sandwich. Given the large Cuban population in Atlanta, this is a fairly predictable dish, differing mainly in spices. At Union Hill, what came was port tips on a heavily oiled, but not pressed, hamburger bun. The experience was one of expecting one thing and receiving another, in this case, less than appealing alternative. My advice is to get detailed descriptions from the server. Otherwise, the atmosphere was great, and it was a pleasant place.

Seriously wow. Apps are divine (try the egg yolk carpaccio it's perfection) and the diner selections are inventive and simple and delicious and my entire family loved everything they had. It is my must stop every time I'm in the Atlanta area. Chef Alexis is always checking in on his guests which I thought is such a nice touch. He really seems to care about your dining experience and was really helpful in assisting me picking the right wines for my meal. For desert I have two words: plantains foster. 😍 You can see he takes great pride in his food. Definitely a must try. And on site parking was a huge plus!!

We loved Union Hill! Creative combinations of food with lots of flavor and depth! Down to earth, casual, chill setting. Service was great and Alexis and Marty added an intimate warm feel. Will definitely be making this a regular stop for any occasion.

The filet was the best I have had even at a steak house! When you go try the new "egg yolk carpaccio appetizer. A plate of runny egg with shoestring fries and Rick shrimp- truly amazing one of a kind dish. Also they have a new Chef's Reserve wine list and also using Coravin to sell wine by glass only. I enjoyed a glass of Shafer Chardonnay Red Shoulder Ranch. This place is truly a hidden gem.

We enjoyed our visit. Excited to find a new place near Dunwoody. The service was good. Deviled eggs were a hit. Also the burger. The soft shell crab was the special. Crab is a delicate flavor. I thought it was over powered by too much seasoning . Otherwise would have given one more star for food.
