This was our second New Year celebration at Union Park. Our server was very good and the atmosphere was very pleasant. The food was very tasty but the lobster bisque and risotto were barely warm. All other courses were very good. Unlike our first visit the courses arrived quick. We had to tell our server to hold off on our... More

Our dinner was lovely and our server even lovelier! (sorry I don't recall her name.) Each course was delicious. Main courses - tenderloin and lamb chops - were perfectly prepared. Despite being very busy, the atmosphere was relaxed. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience!

Expensive, which is alright for good food on New Years. Didn't happen here. Incredibly tiny bay scallops in an appetizer, undercooked grouper entree, fine service; I won't return.

Union Park was great at accepting our reservation and accommodating our group. Our Server, V, was great. She handles our large group professionally and answered everyone's questions and... More

My daughters and I have been doing a "girls weekend" for 5 years and this was our choice this year for our special dinner. We were not disappointed !! Service, Appetizers, entrees and dessert were all excellent! Would highly recommend it - but book early as it is very popular!
