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

Union is a great social hub with great staff, especially Angela, and great food and drinks. As a vegan, my needs have always been met/accommodated and I appreciate that. I am hopeful that they will grab some vegan cheese one day to make a true vegan pizza for me. For now, the veggie topped pizza with no cheese will work.... More

On my most recent visit there were 5 people in our group. We were there to hear the musical group playing in the adjoining venue. We had delicious pizzas and various cocktails. Mine was spiced up with a little jalapeño. And my Wisonsin friend really liked his Old Fashion. It's a casual, modern looking restaurant and usually has a good... More

I live next to this place but I've only gone once. The food was inventive and very good. Oh wait no I went this other time and sat at the bar and ordered an expensive cocktail. No more expensive than any other Chicago cocktails. Anyway, this place gets crowded but it's a cool place with good food.

We love going to Union. Their wood-fired pizzas are so unusual and creative and what a crust! My kids still ask to go on Thursdays when they have "mac and cheese"--the most delicious and naughty mac and cheese around. I don't want to know what is in it! Their salads are wonderful--fresh ingredients and again, unique and delicious flavor combinations.... More

We love Union. Living locally, we go often and have never been disappointed, whether dining on a Thursday night or on New Year's Eve before a concert. Their wood-fired pizza is fantastic, as are the creative and delish small plates that are perfect for sharing. The cocktail list is always changing and features a nice choice of drinks. We are...

Four of us has two pizzas, Mac & cheese, and spinach salad, plus three appetizer dishes. The pizzas were excellent, hot, and tasteful, the Mac & cheese very creamy, and the "small" spinach salad enough for two. The wine choice is broad, and we especially liked the Cabernet and the Sangiovese. Service was prompt and gracious.

The food here is great -- fresh and delicious. Sort of pizzeria meets gastro pub. Interesting cocktails, and a reasonable beer list (although only a couple of the beers are on tap). They do not take reservations, so expect to wait unless you arrive early. Our server was very attentive, and the appetizers came quickly. Although we were there early... More
