Union Station is spectacular, you really must go inside, wander around and take in the place. After that, make a stop at Pierpont's. We did not eat here but the bartenders were such great guys and combined with the majestic look of the place, it deserved a review. Many bartenders know their stuff but these guys were veterans and exceptional!... More

Even with the Groupon, my bill still came to more than twice what I usually pay, but it was worth it. I had my favorite, rack of lamb. It was perfectly done and delicious. The portion was... More

interesting choices. hot delicious loaf of bread brought before the meal. "small" salads were not small at all. Best Caesar salad I've ever had. Portabella mushroom sandwich was amazing. Taste and textures made every bite delicious. The wine choices were interesting and priced very modestly. The service was very good. Our waitress was very attentive and extra staff kept our... More
