Union Station is a great building, so I was interested to try the restaurant within. I was there for a business lunch, and the food was great. The service was also fantastic, and we had a private room for it. I enjoyed it for sure. Next time, I'd like to eat up in the raised dining room in the middle... More

The three or four course tasting menus allow a choice of smaller plates. I chose crab and corn bisque, wild salmon with forbidden rice (black) with a soy and ginger vinaigrette. My third course choice was a ginger cake with lemon ice cream and a sour cherry sauce. The soup was quite rich but very tasty. The wild salmon was... More

First off, the atmostphere at Pierpont's is terrific. High ceilings, romantic lighting, big comfy booths, and a super-sized bar with a library ladder! Service was very attentive, although almost too fast. I started with a Singapore Sling...seemed like an appropriately old fashioned choice for the 100 year location in Union Station. My husband and I both had a three-course small... More

Sometimes words fail to capture all of the little things that culminate into a fantastic dining experience. My collegeagues and I ate dinner here tonight, my bill came to just shy of $70 for my 4 courses with wine pairings and it was worth every penny. I felt like royalty even though I'm just an old Soldier, service was amazing.... More

My wife and I spent the afternoon at Union Station and Hall's Center and chose Pierpont's for lunch. Tim was great in securing a great table and Rebekah, our waiter, was very attentive. My wife had the crab cake roll and I had the King Tut special, a ground lamb roll, seasoned fries and a delicious salad. Both were excellent.

This place had outstanding food and service. Everything I had was delicious. Union Station is a spectacular venue. I love sourdough, and their sourdough loaf was delicious. It disappeared quickly, and I was all by myself! I would suggest getting what I call the sampler. Their "small plates tasting menu" was a delicious value, and a nice way for those... More
