Tried several new beers here, most are not drafts, however. Pizza (special vegetable), salad (fennel and arugula), and the mussels were all very good. Servers very nice. Went to the show after, right on time!

Great place for a glass of wine with friends, and/or a great dinner. We usually go early as it often gets very crowded, especially when there is a show in the "Space" in back. The changing menu reflects items in season. Flavors are combined really well by the chef.

Love this place. Great cocktails. Small but delicious menu. Pizza is obviously good but the the eggplant caponata is to die for. Only drawback is pizza can't be customized (can only delete from set pizzas). Would definitely recommend.

We met friends for our first visit to the Union, and found it was obviously very popular - even on a Thursday evening. One of our party was not feeling 100%, so it was decided that we should share a number of plates a la Taps. We sampled mussels, calamari, Moroccan chicken, Olives,and Tuscan kale and cauliflower. All were well... More

Arrived on a Sunday to be told there was a 40 minute wait...we asked to be seated in bar area instead. Became clear that e 40 minute wait was wildly overstated. Service was very friendly, perhaps a bit absent at end of meal. Arugula salad was fine...a bit droopy as if it had been sitting around a bit long...Shrimp/bacon pizza... More

We had an early dinner here with our son's family and grandchildren. Short wait for a large table. Clean dining area and restrooms. Great service. Slow, relaxing wait for dinner but worth it for the gourmet pizza choices. Expensive but all enjoyed.

I know this place as a hottest place in Evanston. We were there on Wednesday night, late evening and it was packed while every other place in that area was already empty. We tried a Margherita pizza and it was very decent. Calamari in tomato sauce was not exactly what we expected. Too much sauce not so much calamari. They... More

We have visited this hip restaurant 2 times in the last week. My family loves it. I am vegan and the rest of the family is omnivore. There are great options for all of us! As a vegan, I especially love the kale + Brussel sprout salad, argula + fennel salad and cauliflower + kale tahini small plate. The environment... More
