Salad lettuce not fresh, food over salted, chairs uncomfortable. It is the only restaurant in the Hilton, so captive audience there.

If you are staying at the property, it's convenient and you can charge your meal to your room. Breakfast is good. Dinner is never consistence. Either the service or the food is off whenever we visit. The onion soup & sausage with pretzel are excellent. Recently, I had a steak & fries - the fries to salty to eat (sent... More

The Urban Tavern is part of the Hilton Union Square Hotel. The menus vary from lunch and dinner, but the menu is varied, something for everyone (even gluten free items), a very good bar, good service, and moderate prices. At lunch I had their version of a "panini" which was pulled pork and chicken on a very good toasted bun,... More

We were staying at the Hilton in Union Square and decided to try their bar/restaurant out for a late bite to eat. We had visited the bar a few times and the bar staff are very attentive and it has a nice atmosphere. You can either eat at the bar or seat within the main Urban Tavern restaurant. We both... More

Unless one counts the ubiquitous in-lobby Starbucks, this is the only in-hotel dining option available in the Union Square Hilton. Menu is limited and nothing extraordinary to warrant the restricted options. If you are staying more than a day or at a conference, you are forced to go outside the hotel due to the menu limitations. Food preparation and quality... More

Clean, efficient and nice meals although the cook mucked up the order slightly.. Would visit again if staying in the Hotel but wouldn't make a special trip to it.

I stayed at the Hilton that Urban Tavern was located in for a week--so I ate here or had a drink here almost every night. I tried breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It is a bit pricey, but the bar staff are very good; keep you attended, but not overwhelmingly so. The lunch menu is good, but did not rotate during... More

As we stayed at the Hilton we tried the urban tavern. They have a direct access to the hilton. The place is divided in two rooms. The first one is very noisy with the bar but the decorating is original. Our Asian waiter was very friendly with us but the food was a little bit expensive and not very elaborate.
