Fantastic dinning experience! Service and food were excellent. We had a party of 12 and everyone had great things to say about the food. Everyone would go back. They would also recommend Union Park to their foodie friends.

We began with the octopus appetizer and did not realize it is a cold dish, although a surprise it was enjoyed and perhaps it would have been outstanding with a little less of the crema dressing- it had a lot going, piquillo peppers, crema, chorizo or andouille, beans.
