  • There should be an All Occasion
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 3/22/2008
    There should be an All Occasion category above, I would have checked that. This was my second time at Union and will definitely return. The only critizism I have is the French fries were pale and ordinary but I avoided a lot of calories by only eating a few so that was good!!!! The only reason I did not check off some of the categories above is that they simply don't apply to me. I am too old to care about vibrant bar scenes, I don't drink wine and would avoid a restaurant with children.

    We always wanted to try Union since we heard such great things about the restaurant. It definitely lived up to the hype. The food was delicious and unique, and definitely not standard fare which has been what we have finding at so many other recommended restaurants in Boston. The service was very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend it to others.

    We arrived early to have drinks at the bar. Very bitchy waitress there, and we were worried that's what the dining room service would be like as well. Fortunately everything in the dining room was wonderful: servers, food, drinks.

    No excuse for not having real maple syrup. My banana nut muffin was burned and my eggs benedict did not come with any side whatsoever. I have been to dinner at Union and had a wonderful experience, but I will not be back again for brunch.

    Tight quarters put a damper on romance. Consequently, it creates a feeling of being rushed.
