Generally, I've thought this is a place I really like to come to, but after a very unspecial sausage and peppers pizza and very unspecial Caesar's salad, if I weren't going to a show at SPACE, I would dine elsewhere. People at SPACE are absolutely lovely, though.

Union is our go-to place. Always a fun vibe, great service and yummy, healthy, interesting food. Cocktails are A+. Don't be intimidated by a wait time. It always goes fast.

Didn't realize this was the same location as concert venue, cute restaurant, a little loud but the service and selection were great. Pizzas were delicious, I got the Sunday special, lasagna bolognese...large enough to share. Dessert was delightful as well.

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
