I have been trying to eat here for a year or so now. My boyfriend and I would go surf at Swami's and on the way back home try to get a table at Union at around 6:30pm but were always met with an hour plus wait. This time I was with a friend, stopped by at 5:30pm and no wait!
We ordered the soup of the day, which was a seafood bisque, the Watermelon Salad (red & yellow watermelon, arugala, avocado, ricotta salata and a sherry shallot vinaigrette), the Original Flatbread (grilled figs, Laura Chenel Goat Cheese, and balsamic onions) and side of their bacon mac n' cheese. The soup was phenomenal, especially after getting out of the cold ocean water but the watermelon salad and mac n' cheese were just okay. The flatbread was delicious...a perfect blend of sweet, salty and tangy.
The service was attentive. The atmosphere and people-watching were entertaining. Overall, I'm glad I didn't give up on trying to get a table at UNION.
