I came with a party of 7 I was seated in a large open dining room with a 12 foot ceiling. The acoustics were horrible. Table conversations were difficult. The service was fair the portions were large. No one finished their food. The crowd seemed happy and cheerful. I was dissatisfied. Sorry to say

I grew up eating here, and while the menu has changed through the years, the food is still really good. Come with a big appetite, and save room for the wonderful pie.

We stopped in because Sonoma Canopy Tours gave us a coupon for the Bruschetta, which was very good. We stayed for the other pastas which were okay. What was lovely was the patio, the drinks, the salad, the atmosphere.

WE have been going to the Union Hotel for years and it is a MUST. If you go family style, we always do, you will get more food then you know what to do with. Food is fresh and good. If they are not on the menu ask for the apple fritters....best around! Service was good as always.

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.

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
