“Fine dining”
Reviewed March 7, 2014

Elegant restaurant, fine food, gracious service. The ambiance here is first rate. The food mostly French. If you're looking for a fine dining experience, you will not be disappointed. It's a bit pricey but it's worth it.

“A gentile atmosphere with superb food.”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The Union League Cafe provides a diverse menu and the food is superb. The setting is gracious, one is not cramped
and can enjoy a good conversation in front of a fire
with excellent food and service.
Don't be in a rush. The experience should be savored!!

“Tradition at its best”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

We came for a special event and were fortunate to sit on the first floor at tables for 10 people. The food was exquisite, the wine selection superb, and the atmosphere truly special. Would happily return for a romantic and authentic feel of historic new Haven.

“Casual yet elegant”
Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

Came here for a retirement party/business meeting. Doesn't look like much from the street, but pleasantly surprised when I entered. Understated elegance, professional attentive waiters and delicious food. Great wine selection. A must dine if/when in New Haven.
