This restaurant is fun, has a great vibe, and the food and service are fantastic. Our server, Stephanie, who is divine, suggested great local wines, and as I am from out of town, I wouldn't have known which ones to choose.
Our table had a variety of food, we shared the charcuterie platter ( a very generous serving for two people), my sister had the Union Salad (best starter salad she has ever had) and my nephew had the elk sliders and demolished them.
For dinner, we had the ribs, mussels, and the papardelle with braised beef and a shared serving of fries. Everyone loved their dinners, the atmosphere and the ambiance of a fun and hip place.
Make a reservation, this place is popular.

Food was very inventive. Service was good and waiter knew the menu very well. Started with the gnocchi, very good in a mushroom sauce. The cassoulet really was a dream comparable to some enjoyed in France. Don't go here if you want a quaint evening or date but great energy on Saturday night.

My boyfriend and I have been to Union for brunch a few times but never dinner. We went for dinner with two others on March 1 and had a fabulous meal. The service was amazing and the server was very friendly and helpful - he made some great suggestions! The menu constantly changes but some items frequent their menu. Two of us had a pasta dish called Raju (beef, pork, etc) and one had the steak tar tar and another had their famous ribs. All meals were delicious and the atmosphere was busy but cozy. The prices are reasonable and the wine choices are plenty. We even saw Sandra Oh while we were dining. I would highly recommend for brunch and/or dinner!

The greeting was friendly and the atmosphere is a little loud but the food is just fantastic. A small menu with some eclectic choices but every item was tasty. The frites are unbelievable. Sticky ribs and scallops were both phenomenal dishes Duck and elk great. They concentrate on local foods and do an excellent job at it. The service is amazing. Ask for Stephanie. Couldn't be more bubbly then her. The only downsides is the seating is a little close together and the acoustics make things a little noisy but the food and service make it well worthwhile.

Ate here last night for a casual business dinner, and was very impressed with every part of the meal. Friendly service, outstanding food and really good wine. Will definitely be here again.
