“Tried and True Terrific”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2012

I get to Colorado Springs once a year and meet friends who drive down from Denver at the "Half-way" point which is Castle Rock to have dinner. Only my second time at Union Bistro and in a year's time this restaurant holds it's charm of a truly good dining experience. I have to admit, on my last visit, the pork chop, Union Bistro's signature dish, IS the best chop I've ever eaten and it was hard not to order it this time. I decided on the salmon and delighted I did. Prepared perfectly with a terrific glaze (menu said BBQ sauce but it was like no BBQ sauce I'd ever had and was outstanding!), crunchy home potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts, I think the salmon dish may be my new favorite. Dessert choice was hard, as I ordered the outstanding Coconut Cream Pie but wanted Union's home made ice cream sandwich with salted caramel ice cream. The waitstaff are always very attentive and Union had a half-priced bottle of wine special which we couldn't resist. There are many wonderful restaurants in Colorado Springs, but venture north on Route 25 to Castle Rock (45 min) for a truly terrific meal. My trouble is I have to wait another year before getting there again!

“Great patio stop!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012 via mobile

I don't think I've had a better lunch in Castle Rock. Granted, I stuck with appetizers instead of a lunch entree, but the pork "wings" were fantastic and the calamari was as good as I've had anywhere. Good, fast service on in a casual patio setting. I'll be back for sure.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Pricey, but had the best pork chop I've ever eaten. In downtown historic Castle Rock. Upscale bistro atmosphere.

“Union is a great meeting place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

Union is the sister resturant to Uniscali and we love it! Its our neighboorhood meeting place. Great martinis, food and personalized service. The Double Pork Chops are the best! And the menu provides great flavors and will surprise you. We love the service too! The bar is large and allows for meeting serveral friends. Try the black pearl marini- an all time favorite
