Sit downstairs. Order the pigs ear. Good looking staff, atmosphere like no other, you'll feel like your a fancy person eating at a restaurant from the movie color purple. Enjoy!

Great concept, relaxed decor and decent service but the cuisine needs refining. The duck heart starter lacked oomph and the hearts were chewy despite being on the rare side. The only flavour came from the filet of brown sauce drizzled across the top. The fried catfish was soggy and the accompanying pecan puree was bland. The beef flank steak was... More

Hipster alert!! :-) We each ordered a main and then ordered a bunch of sides to share. The fried chicken was fantastic as was the catfish. Also, you must get the duck heart appetizer. The sides were a little less spectacular than the mains though. Afterwards, we found our way to the 'secret' speakeasy downstairs behind the bookshelf. It was... More

Ambiance is low key, urban, almost industrial but warm and welcoming too. The server is cool, patient, and the small exchanges we had over the course of the meal were witty and light. My dining partner had the fried chicken and fries with the world's most amazing homemade vinegar. I had the catfish poboy (sp?) which was very tasty but...... More

I really like Union 613 I had the rabbit and my wife had the chicken, we both loved the cocktails. Sure it's a bit pricey, but so are most good restaurants in town.

Went here once while we were in Ottawa visiting and now everytime I think about it, my mouth waters! Best cornbread I've ever had in my life! Plus the most unique menu I've ever seen in my life! I would absolutely come back again! Also, love the interior decorating. Great atmosphere! Fun place to try out !

I was in Ottawa for my daughters Ringette tournament and we decided to try this restaurant. We ended up eating in the basement 'speak easy' which is very odd but we liked its eclectic location. The flank steak was fantastic and the white squash vegetarian dish also excellent. A couple days later (as theses tournaments can go on forever) we... More

This is a fun place to frequent for a pint or dinner with friends. Enjoy the hidden speakeasy located in the basement for a fun charm of the 1930's. Excellent food and dedicated service. I really can't think of any complaints about this establishment.

This was a good restaurant with a menu that it a little off the wall. The server was good and had a lot of good recommendations. I would go back again.

I went here for drinks with some girlfriends and it was my first time at Union. I loved it! We managed to get into the speakeasy which is super cool - very old timey, rustic and romantic at the same time (perfect for a date). Our waiter was great - he must have overheard that it was my friend's bday... More
