“We Love Going Here”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We love eating at Union. Their food is adventurous and simply divine. Their filet is so tender and juicy...I love it. If I had to think of any complaint, it's the seating/waiting situation. Even with reservations (which you really should have) the wait can be an awkward 10-15 minutes...and I say awkward because there is no really good place to wait...You're just standing in the open. That said, once seated, you'll enjoy a delectable meal!

“Love this place!!”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

We have eaten at their sister restaurant, Uniscali, several times but had never made it into Union Bistro until yesterday. We had a late lunch, though the place was pretty full at 1:30. I had the special salad of the day with grilled chicken breast, applewood smoked bacon, cucumbers and a few other goodies in the salad. My spouse had the Hot Thai Beef which comes tossed in cabbage, romaine, ice noodle and fresh veggies in a light lime honey ginger vinaigrette. We shared the soup of the day which was a devine creamy artichoke creation. We mentioned to our server, Stacy, that we always went to Uniscali but hadnt been here before. She began explaining her favorites on the menu and also told us about the happy hour which includes discounts on the small plates in addition to drink specials. We topped off the meal with a piece of the coconut cream pie.. YUMMY!!! We definitely will return..

“Excellent Lunch choice”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

The Union Bistro is a delightful restaurant. Cozy and upscale. Their lunch menu is better than the typical chain Bistro with a wide variety of salads, sandwiches and more. I see in earlier post there were complaints, I have never experienced any problems with various visits during lunch, I cannot speak on the dinner crowd.

“Noise level affected our group dinner”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Made a reservation for a large group to celebrate a wedding in the family. Shared the occasion with the reservations person and were told they didn't have a private room but that they would put us off in a corner and that after 7:30 pm the restaurant got quiet. We were seated at a long table with chairs and a banquette so that the people at the end were isolated. The noise level in general was HIGH the entire time from 7:30-9:30 and the ten of us were barely able to speak to the person across the table - never mind down the table. The food was good, service attentive but the point of the evening was to be able to socialize and that was ruined by the noise level in the restaurant and the thoughtless table arrangement. My bad for not doing more research!

“Best Food in Castle Rock”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My family and I love The Union. We have always had above average service and great food. The menu is slightly limited but as stated on the menu, if you dont see what you want just ask. More than once our kids wanted something slightly different than what was on the menu and low and behold, a few minutes later out comes made to order, fresh, excellent hand crafted food!!! The staff has always been very polite, professional, and timely. We love the classy vibe of The Union. If you are in a hurry, it may not be the place for you. But, if you want really high quality, fresh food and want a nice evening out; this is your place in Castle Rock without all the posers you might find at the other popular restuarant in town a few blocks away.

The wine list is above average for a restuarant on this size. In addition, they have a great 1/2 price bottle nite (how can you beat that?).

Last but not least, we just love to have a cold, fresh Boulevard Unfiltered Wheat on tap, with a lemon of course!!! (yes we are from KC originally...)

We have not been there for lunch but we recommend this spot for families, friends, celebrations or date nights out.
