A first time visit for me with an old pal who recommended we lunch here. The greeting, as I entered, was warm and friendly, with an open-faced smile. Once my pal arrived, we were waited on with the appropriate level of attentiveness. My main dish was great and I shall recommend BISTRO UNION to anyone. Thanks team…
Very friendly staff and amazing food, will definitely be back
Genuinely one of the best places in London no matter the occasion!
Overall good, however service was dreadfully slow. Still friendly, just slow.
We have been hear a few times for ‘date night’, there is a great atmosphere and the food is excellent in a relaxed environment. We will be back but I did think that the value was not so good any more (we went for £40 set menu but it ended up costing nearly twice that before the drinks were added) service was a bit pushy, seemed in a hurry to get us out, until we had the bill then it seemed like we were invisible!
Hopefully it was just an off night as we have had some exceptional experiences there before.
Service was excellent, knowledge of the menus and wine suggestions for our choices were perfect. Would highly recommend.
Amazing food and amazing service. Don't hesitate to go there!
A fantastic experience. Everything was perfect. Amazing food and service
This was only my second time at Bistro Union and I came away wondering why it took me so long to come back. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was nicely full - buzzy but not too noisy. The service was brilliant - friendly and professional. The menu was great and the food fresh and beautifully cooked - I had the seared tuna to start which had wonderful fresh Asian flavours - my husband the pork terrine which was rustic and delicious - served with buttered toast. We shared the slow cooked lamb shoulder as main - which was just I hoped - tender succulent meat which just fell away from the bone. Deserts were all delicious and rounded off a great evening. We will be back soon. A local gem.
Great food, and friendly service from all of the staff
We really liked the service and the staff at this restaurant. We did feel, however, that the main courses were disappointing. The portion size for the spaghetti with clams was tiny. Additionally, the chicken (shared between two) was dry and chewy. It is a shame as the starters and desserts were excellence. Upon reflection, we would rather dine somewhere more consistent in quality.
It was a shame the chicken was dry (and the roast tomato and salad rather bland). Additionally, check portion sizes as my friend was disappointed by the size of the spaghetti with clams. The staff in the restaurant were the real highlight.
Just when I thought all the charming and hidden venues for a special occasion were known to me, did I discover a real gem. Bistro Union is like discovering a setting where chefs like to come to eat when they are not working. It has the ambience of a neighbourhood bistro but for those who like a little more attention given to their food.
Great staff who signed a birthday card and presented to me the minute I sat down as if they knew me.
Little things like this don't happen often nor does the chef deliver your food and discusses what he has created as a little footnote to your visit.
You can tell the staff love where they are working and what they do because it shows in everything without being over bearing.
Food is very nice, the staff were helpful and efficient. I have not been there before but have been to the sister restaurant and so was expecting a similar standard and I was not disappointed, in fact it was a slightly less formal and therefore a more relaxed atmosphere. I had booked it for a friend to come who can be particular about restaurant experiences, I needn’t have worried we had a lovely evening. Will return in future. Glad to have found the place.
Nice food although not large serves. Efficient service though not very welcoming. Wine very expensive so go there if you don’t drink!
Always outstanding and never disappointing!
The food is fantastic and the staff knowledgeable and friendly. A great barman tops it off! Highly recommend.
We've been coming here for a good few years now and it has always been a pleasure. This time it was exceptional. Excellent food and wine - and great service. Had guests from abroad who were very impressed. Many thanks.
I’ve been going to Bistro Union since it opened in Abbeville Road & it never disappoints. Great ambience & excellent service. The menu is more interesting than other venues in the area & the service exemplary. I’d recommend it to ‘foodies’ looking for great food at affordable prices.
Always great and never disappoints. A great dining experience!!
Amazing table, amazing service, amazing food, amazing value just simply amazing
Another excellent meal at Bistro Union - the service was stand-out as usual!
This is one of our favourite restaurants in London. It’s thoroughly charming, the food is delicious and the staff are great.
Early evening family birthday dinner for 7. Lovely food, careful and thoughtful service. Everybody enjoyed all of it, particularly the mushroom and truffle soup! Will definitely be back
Fantastic! Great food and service. Would highly recommend
Superb food and drink served up by friendly, smiley attentive staff. 2x Courses @ £25 is great value as well. Recommended.
Bistro Union is always great! Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff and good atmosphere
Outstanding set menu game dinner and wine recommendations to match. Thanks
Ever reliable we always enjoy our meals here, thumbs up once a again
Very smokey restaurant and quite loud, you could hear the kitchen a lot.
However delicious food, and wide range of drink options. Also great value.
Have been visiting this restaurant probably monthly for the last few years it had become a local favourite. Having said that our last two visits the service has been very slow from getting our first drinks to long waits for food; last Sunday our mains had still not arrived 90 mins after we had arrived. I really hope they can get their act together.
A great neighbourhood restaurant. Food and ambiance very good. Recommend.
Chateaubriand for two very good, best chips and bernaise sauce, waiter excellent. Restaurant needs a little work with tables to rear of restaurant, felt a bit grubby, too dark and was echoey.. So we moved to front of restaurant!
We live nearby and have been going to Bistro Union for a few years. This was probably one of our best experiences there - the menu has changed and it feels like better value for money now. We both had the steak and it was excellent. The service was much better than the last time we were there.
Fabulous neighborhood restaurant. Warm, professional hospitality and excellent cooking. Dined here for the first time, and 100% surely not the last.
Always reliably inventive food with a good wine list and immaculate and attentive service.
Delicious as always but particularly enjoyed the roast pork belly and the lemon meringue tart.
Such a nice touch to be greeted with a birthday card. Really good service and great food.
Bistro Union was very good indeed! Booked table for girlfriend's Birthday and right away they made her feel special by hand writing Birthday card which was on the table as we arrived. The food itself was of top quality, and the Lamb Shoulder to share really is a must ! Great food, good ambiance, will be coming back for more!
You couldn't ask for more from a neighbourhood gem. Relaxed and friendly service, delicious food (the lamb shoulder was outstanding), a place you want to come back to.
We had a very enjoyable evening with delicious food and not too full so sound levels low! pleasant surroundings and friendly staff. All very satisfactory!
