We had a party of 8. Went in early on a Monday afternoon. There was a table for 8 set up. We ordered our beverages. Waited a while and ordered dinners. The waitress brought the drinks, 4 glasses of wine and 1 bottle of wine. The wine was not opened as the waitress said she would have to get someone... More

The KOA tour guide, John, recommended that we eat at the Union hotel and it was well worth the trip. I took my family there for my wife's birthday - the food was excellent. It was pricey for the kids and they didn't appreciate the authentic Italian cuisine, but that was our fault for taking them.

I was traveling on my motorcycle from Arkansas and came across a quaint community in Occidental, CA. The whole town had a wonderful appeal. I checked in the Hotel Occidental and inquired about a good restaurant. The gentlemen referred me to Union Hotel Restaurant and brother was he right. I had the Chicken and mixed vegetables with Ravioli on the... More

My Family has been going here for over 50 years. It always feels like visiting an old friend. Be ready for a big meal. Family Style Italiano....I love that this place is still going strong and still pumping out some of my favorite comfort foods.

My husband and I headed out to the coast to avoid the heat. After a lovely day in Bodega Bay, we headed to Occidental and the Union Hotel for dinner. It was great! If the clam chowder is available, order it!!! It is really, really good! The dinner was delicious and a lot of it. You won't go home hungry.... More

Don't miss eating at the Union Hotel in Occidental, CA. There aren't many places to dine there and they do an outstanding job. The bread us fresh and delicious. Love the pizza and the menu has much more to offer. Enjoy.

I especially like the Chicken Cacciatore and the Zuchinin fritters served outside on the patio where it is less noisey and more romantic.

For decades this was always a highlight of trips up the Coast or Redwoods. It has been six years since we have been there for dinner and I was filled with memories and anticipation of happier times. Traditionally the homemade ravioli was always a standout favorite. To my astonishment our meal was an expensive disappointment. The Minestrone was a watery... More
