We have produce delivered daily to ensure our dishes are fresh and full flavored. Many of our ingredients are locally grown and chosen for seasonality.

Service was incredible as always. The black bean burger was amazing. The veggie orzo dish was mostly good, but probably not worth the cost. The berry cheesecake was unbelievable. Please bring back the tu-no melt, and the Caesar salad!

Excellent food and service. Always interesting food combinations -- all of them absolutely delicious. Asked our server to slow down the pace of bringing food to allow for more time between courses, and it was immediately accommodated. Very appreciated.

Great food in a comfortable space. The staff provided perfect recommendations just had a slight miss in the timing of one side. We will for sure go back.

We've been to Union House twice and both experiences were exceptional. They offer a wide selection of tapa options and every dish we tried was beautiful and tasty! The patio area outside is adorable and the service exceptional. We will be back!
