My family has been coming to the Union Hotel for 60+ years on special occasions. I took my Mom there for her b-day and wasn't disappointed. Yes, the prices are a bit higher than when I was younger, but the food is still superb and service great. We had the traditional roasted chicken meal. Everything was top quality, i.e. the minestone soup, the salad, the ravioli, and chicken etc. The portions are big and you'll definitely need a take away box for lunch the next day. Only disappointment was the zucchini fritters which were a bit greasy. The place looks literally as it was when I was 5 (I'm now +45) and what a treat to stop by and have not only a great meal, but enjoy the old school atmosphere. Don't miss this place if you're in Occidental.
