I wanted to make my 50th review be about a very special place. I could not think of anywhere better than the Union Hotel. Last night my wife asked where I wanted to go for my birthday dinner. The answer was easy - the Union Hotel. I have been eating there since I was a child. I always feel at... More

I have been coming to the Union Hotel for dinner for over 40 years now – it’s a spiritual experience and a trip down memory lane for me. With a small town charm, this restaurant evokes a feeling of the simpler times. Walking into this place, you feel like you've stepped into a different era. This is a period building... More

Once again the most delicious meal and comfortable stay in Sonoma County... The hidden treasure in the "Tree's" is the most beautiful place in the forest. You MUST bring your favorite book and sit by the fire...

Minestrone soup (homemade) is the best. Entree perfectly cooked. Love this place. Always a great place for a family to enjoy a family style meal

My husband and I got married on Barbera's property, and our reception was held at the Union Hotel Bocce Ballroom. The food, vibe, service, and atmosphere of the Union Hotel is amazing. All of our guests loved the venue and the old time Italian ambiance of the Union Hotel made for the perfect wedding reception. We love the Union and... More

Driving through harsh rain and wind, out to a small country town off the beaten path, we weren't expecting to find such a gem. The place is very home-style, with wooded walls and red check table cloths. The food is big proporttions, and basically a 4 course meal - salad AND soup AND antipasta AND fresh bread - THEN your...

This place was my first job, and while there have been changes over the last thirty years, it is still a very similar establishment. More comfort and volume over ecclectic. Cool bar and old town atmosphere. If you order a meat dish in the dinning room (as opposed to bar), they over feed you. Not sure if it is still... More

I'm grateful for every opportunity to return for a meal at The Union Hotel in Occidental. The food is wonderful and the service is even better. These days I travel over 1,800 miles to get there and Barbara always makes me and my family feel at home.

I remember having Sunday dinner with my family as a child at the Union. Now, many years later,I regularly select to take my family back to the Union for great Italian food in a warm,friendly welcoming environment. Our favorites are their pizza, minestrone soup,clam chowder, chicken pot pie. The bakery is such cozy and welcoming morning hangout for the little... More

We just love this place!! Our family was seated in the dining room and a young woman was playing the piano the whole time we were there. It was so inviting. The food was amazing. It's the only place around you can get chicken cattatorie (my moms favorite). Barbara and Trurdy both come to our table to say hi to... More
