“Perfect food”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

We headed to Union Square after our friends recommended it so highly to us and it did not disappoint! We had an incredible waiter who quickly became our friend and told us all about his experiences of New York! The chicken was so delicious and the other meals on offer looked equally as amazing. Union Square has a great atmosphere because it hasn't let it's fame affect its cute layout and quirky feel! If you go to NY, this is a must!

“A Tradition with Us”
Reviewed April 19, 2013

We go to the USC on every trip to NYC. One of the best restaurants in NYC. We normally go for lunch and you must make reservations a month ahead for busiest times. A must try for those loving a classic NYC tradition.

“2nd Visit , food great, staff lovely , very enjoyable”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

We first visited Union Square cafe in 2009, and it was the first restaurant we booked again when we knew we were coming back to New York. When i booked i mentioned my husband & I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. It was noted, and when we sat down a very kind waiter brought us a glass of champagne each, and our dessert plate was decorated in chocolate wishing us Happy 20th Anniversary . Our waitress was very funny, and very professional and very knowledgeable on all the dishes.. Portions not too big , but very filling. Would highly recommend it and already looking forward to visiting again the next time we visit New York

“Good Choice!!”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

I love this restaurant for lunch. The menu is diverse and has good options for quick meals or not. The service is friendly and the ambient is relaxed with executive clients, artists and workers in the area of Union Square, beyond the tourists of course.
