Restaurant description

An edgy urban restaurant from one of the world’s most famous chefs, Gordon Ramsay Restaurant's Union Street Café in Southwark, London, showcases refreshingly simple Italian cuisine. In this converted warehouse-style space, the main attraction is incredible Italian cuisine served from a theatre-style open kitchen.

Sourcing from artisan Italian producers as well as those closer to home, head chef Davide Degiovanni presents a selection of time-honoured recipes, served with a modern twist. Wholesome recipes from the daily-changing Union Street Café menu might include chicken breast with spinach and pecorino mousse, or smoked aubergine and burrata risotto. Only the freshest ingredients are used.

At the restaurant’s very own Olive Grove, bar bartenders muddle creative and classic cocktail mixes that take inspiration from the flavours of the Mediterranean and the humble olive.

Styled to resemble a cool, New York-style loft space, Union Street in London is a 3-minute walk from Southwark Tube Station and close to the Southbank, Shakespeare’s Globe, Borough Market, and Tate Modern.

Dishes displayed on a la carte menus are representative of the type of food available at the restaurant.

    4 of us went for my husbands birthday - I had booked an on line special offer £30 for four courses with kitchen tour -it was the kitchen tour that attracted me as my husband is in catering When we got there the special menu had been printed off with Happy Birthday emblazoned across it -to be honest we were a bit disappointed with the choices and asked if we could go Al la carte but still have the kitchen tour -they staff were great and said no problem . Each dish we had was sublime and come dessert my husband was served an Ice cream on a beautiful platter with happy birthday Ian in chocolate writing across it and a birthday card signed by all the staff --so so special we then did the kitchen tour which was amazing and two more opportunities for the staff to sing happy birthday and another happy birthday dessert !! It really was the most wonderful evening so an enormously huge thank you to all the staff -all 4 of us cant wait to go back

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at Union Street Cafe. The attention to detail from the welcome to the service throughout was delightful. I especially liked when the waitress dropped a hint that she had a surprise after dessert that would be filled in later. And this was when we were ordering our first courses! Favourite dish can’t be picked, they were all lovely. But the apricot crumble as a gluten free person who hasn’t eaten crumble in years was sublime. The skin on the seabass could have been crispier but hey. The chocolate truffles with our complimentary after dinner cocktail was a perfect way to end the evening. I’d return.

    the Italian egg starter was very good. I have chicken thigh as second course, again very tasty and Tender. The on house choclate at the end, must be home made and was delicious. The tour of the kitchen was very interesting and now I understand why the menu change and is only a short menu everyday to ensure freshness. Staff very friendly and has good service.

    Nice meal, the best was the startes and desserts. Very nice personal staff, very friendly, very well service and such a nice experience. The only bad thing I could say is that I think that the drinks are too over priced for the quality

    Good overall but not as good as i was expecting from the GR group. The food was good value but it was not outstanding. Service again good but nothing special. And that was it, everything was good but nothing was outstanding i would not go back and wouldn't say ' you've got to go to .....' quite forgettable.
