Great cocktails and food in fun atmosphere

One of our favorite "nice" places to visit for cocktails, caesar salad, mussels, and whatever else hits our fancy. (Pizza good too, but we've only chosen that once.) We like the seats near the bar to eat and people watch. Been there maybe five times now. Service sometimes amazing, usually at... read more

I liked that most items could be ordered as half or whole portions. The whole portion was good for two people to share, if you both agree to eat the same thing. Otherwise those half potions come in handy. Even though the restaurant was crowded, the service was ex spelling. We liked sitting on the couches and chairs part of... More

Charming fun place with sofas, a wood burning oven & lively dining room (though tables are placed very close together, so not great for privacy). Excellent knowledgeable service! Great Food at reasonable prices... from the huge variety of pizzas, specials of the day to the small plates! A few fav's: Eggplant caponata - wow, Shrimp & grits - full of... More

We like the seats near the bar to eat and people watch. Been there maybe five times now. Service sometimes amazing, usually at least good.

Ate a margarita pizza and eggplant bruschetta here. The room is cavernous, loud and fun Evanston space. We didn't realize the concert venue is inside restaurant and with a 7:00pm start, we found the restaurant overcrowded at 6:00pm. We waited 45 minutes but it was worth it! There is a large bar and sofas and chairs to sit in to... More

This is a casual, fun restaurant in Evanston. The food is great and reasonably priced. It's a great for sharing lots of fun small plates and wonderful gourmet pizzas. The bar is always full and the staff is great. There is also a concert venue in the back. This is a place that many other restaurants try to emulate but... More

Came here on a recommendation. I had a pizza which was great and my friend had the salmon which she also enjoyed. Nice atmosphere in the restaurant and fairly decent selection of beverages. If you are visiting Evanston and need somewhere to eat i'd recommend a visit.

Union Pizzeria is our favorite place for pizza in Evanston. Not only do they have a brick oven, but they have creative/gourmet toppings. It is the one place my wife with a bovine dairy and soy intolerance can order a pizza. (The goat cheese pizza is awesome!) One of our favorite standards is the bowl of mussels. The large can...

The atmosphere and the food is excellent. Just warning, it can be a bit loud. Went there with a group of people and it was a bit annoying after awhile, the noise carries. I think it's better for a smaller group. I recommend going early if you can, it fills up quickly.

Union is truly a great restarant, my family and I have loved and have been going to this restarunt for years. The pizza is great, so is the atmosphere. Seating is comfortable because my family and I always like to sit on the couches near the windows. The Staff is nice, but device is a little bit slow. Probably because... More

We had a very fine brunch at Union on a Sunday morning in November. We arrived at 11, just as they opened, and we had no wait for our table. The service was excellent and the food quite good. The special omelette: spinach, provolone, caramelized onions and mushrooms along with the french toast on tuscan bread were highlights. Street parking... More
