We opened in December 2018 to bring to West Hartford an innovative, yet approachable modern American cuisine, as designed by Chef Zach Shuman, in a comfortable, welcoming setting.
Amazing food! Best Brussel sprouts
Very delicious . Loved the menu choices. Server was excellent.
Friendly service. Drinks were good. Food was a bit too salty but still good. Outdoor seating options nice.
Seared tuna handheld - fabulous!
Burger - delish!
Great casual spot, both inside and outside seating are comfortable and good for people watching.
Party of 6 and we all were fairly happy with the food. The Brussel sprouts were fantastic! And the truffle fries great, too. My only issue was that everything had a lot of oil on it so i think they need to be careful about using too much of it. I'm a fan of oil, but it's not for everyone and "too much" was the general consensus of the table. Otherwise service was good and the venue is nice.
Very enjoyable dining experience, as usual, as UK. Great food, attentive service, enjoyable outdoor setting though a bit noisy with traffic. Lettuce cups and red snapper made a great dinner on a very warm night.
Great selection of happy hour specials. Menu is varied, a bit of a UK feel. Fish and chips were excellent! Outdoor dining!
Entertaining friends from out of town was easy and fun at Union Kitchen. Great cocktails and appetizers. The NY strip, Chicken Bolognese and Seared Shrimp were awesome.
We asked t share a meal and they plated it nicely and that was appreciated. Waitress was very pleasant and food was very tasty and unique.
Loved the live music, we were celebrating my promotion and had a blast! The happy hour prices are great and their goat cheese pizza is to die for!
The food was mediocre at best and the service was slow despite their best-efforts. Standards should be much higher given the cost of dining at Union Kitchen. It was our first and last visit.
Came for happy hour and apps. Really great experience and will absolutely return. All 5 dishes we ordered were very good as well as the drinks.
Amazing! Will definitely be back!
Out of a lot of cocktails and food on menu. A little slow on food service. Waitstaff was amazing though.
The gnocchi was amazing, steak was well cooked, and happy hour guacamole was a decent size. It’s definitely worth the price and they had ample indoor and outdoor dining
Our reservation was at 8:30pm outside. We arrived 15 minutes early and had a drink at the bar. Live music was very enjoyable!
By 9pm our table still was not available. By then we were hungry and anxious to eat. Given they have a good bit of outside space, seemed like they could have accommodated a party of 3. Finally, at 9:10pm, asked the hostess if we could sit. She pulled together a table for 2 and added an extra chair between a table with 1 person and a table of 2. Seems like that could have been done 40 minutes earlier. On the plus side; waitstaff was attentive (some menu selections of longer available) and food came quickly. Disappointing as we have had better experiences on previous visits.
Great ambiance and food.
Great food and service. Came for happy hour and enjoyed it! Will come again !
Everything was perfect until my server overcharged me when it was time to pay
Megan W was our wonderful server as we enjoyed the outside seating. She was so personable and helpful. The food was fantastic. I love the diversity of the menu. I highly recommend this restaurant!
The food was amazing! I got the braised short rib with spinach Mac & Cheese and my daughter got the Monte Cristo. We had a reservation to sit outside but it was raining and thundering so we asked for inside seating. No problem they sat us right away. Only downfall, that was our last stop before heading to airport so we couldn’t take our delicious leftovers...
Good apps and dinner. Had the rock shrimp, lobster bisque, and crabcake for apps, then beef tip tacos with salad. A little loud t times being seated in the street, with the cars blaring music creeping by all the diners on a Saturday night. Probably a little quieter on a weeknight. Great service though, and an enjoyable time out.
Great time, wait staff was excellent! Food was yummy
We loved dinner! The food and service were both great!
The fried chicken sandwich literally amazes me every time it’s so good. Crab cake was delicious, served different than I’ve ever had it with a pickled cabbage situation, amazing. My boyfriend got the rigatoni vodka which he loved, great portion- not overwhelmingly large or skimpy. Love this place !
Overall the food was good but unfortunately the kitchen and waitress were out of synch with my party of 4. I ordered a salad and halfway through eating it two entrees arrived. Then, my entree arrived which led me to boxing my remaining salad. Then, a few minutes later the final entree arrived. The waitress said nothing about this and kept moving onto the next table.
Food quality was excellent as was the service. We have been here several times now and the food quality and service has been consistent.
Our first visit and sadly I was not impressed. The restaurant was beautiful inside but the service was off and very slow. Drink order was wrong and then coffee took forever because they didn’t have clean coffee cups ( we had 6:00 pm reservation) food was ok and expensive. I know restaurants are struggling to catch up to losses due to COVID and staffing issues so I regret this review. Maybe it was an off day for them.
Fantastic short ribs; generously portioned and not fatty.
Barbeque ribs were deliciously sauced and tender.
French onion soup arrived bubbly and extra cheesy.
Overall, great dinner. We'll be back for sure!
Great dining scene in West Hartford..........lot's going on. I would highly recommend Union Kitchen and Chef Zach's culinary skills.
So many amazing apps
Nice live music on a Friday night
Brussel Sprouts are so crispy and amazing, I just think they needed a aioli or dipping sauce!

I don't know if its new management but the quality is a shadow of what it used to be. This has been our go to spot for two years and we left angry and disappointed.
Good was delicious. Staff was friendly. Restaurant was very clean, upscale.
Very good food, nice ambience and great service! Would definitely recommend.
The food was awesome1 I celebrated my birthday with my boyfriend and that was the first time going. Will be back again!
Great quiet evening, great server.
We had a great time. The staff were attentive and very pleasant. The food was delicious. We will be back.
Had great server. The Bao Bun and Tuna Tacos are great. The bread pudding is so decadent, to die for.
Sat outside, which was fine. But the noise level inside, load voices and music, was too noisy for me. I like to be able to hear the person I’m with without them having to shout, and vice versa. Enjoyed the food and Bella, our waitress, took good care of us.
Bartender made us a custom cocktail, service was attentive, food was prompt and delicious! The chicken bolognese was the unexpected star of the table.
