Diner Reviews
  • "The food is always outstanding! I try something new every time, but the beef tenderloin is my fall back. It melts in your mouth! The first bite confirms that the food is fresh. The garden outside is a dead giveaway. You will not be disappointed."

  • "Five in our group for dinner. We had a pasta dish, a salad entree, the special and burgers. Also the chilled cucumber mint soup. All outstanding. Definitely recommend."

  • "I am not a Food Critic, but The Pork Chop was magnificent."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I ate for the first time Saturday night, the food was very good and the wait staff were very good. I've lived in castle rock for two years and just now decided to try your restaurant. I will recommend to all and will return for another night out. Thanks to all for making it a fun evening."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Some friends and I went to their Happy Hour after work. A word of caution - you can't make reservations for the tables that offer Happy Hour - fortunately we were still about to get a spot. The small plates are awesome - crunchy broccoli, potato skin nachos, white cheddar fondue - for a group that is okay with sharing food, it was great and pretty cheap with the half price Happy Hour going on."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Service is excellent and have given it a poor rating for one reason only: I have constantly asked management for wait staff to wear name tags -- we are regulars and are embarrassed when we cannot remember names of people who have served us before, and they remember ours! (We are of that age!) That is inconsiderate to their clientele and is a poor mark against the wait staff who are excellent, always rating 5 stars vs. management's 0 on this subject (otherwise management would get 5, too)."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "2 best things: small plates and patio. Least best: noise level inside restaurant. Ordered several small plates, next time will order more. Variety of choices, broccoli was fantastic! Several had sandwiches, tasty and substantial. Patio a lifesaver for our family of 5 who wanted to have a conversation; too noisy and crowded inside. Maitre D very helpful! Would definitely go again."

  • "We went for the first time and everything was really good! I highly recommend the Idaho Nachos, and the peanut butter bites! Just hope they will bring back the brussel sprout, bacon, and corn risotto. We will definitely be back!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We made reservations for the Bistro after checking the reviews online and totally agree with the recommendations. We both had the beef tenderloin and it was excellent! Fun martini list!! Great service!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Our waitress, Mary Jo was awesome! She allowed us plenty of time to talk, but yet came back at all the right times. We only had appetizers, so I can't read the overall food quality. The calamari was cooked to perfection, not greasy, and tasty. It was too salty for my taste however. The Beef flat bread was incredible although topped with too much arugula. The place was a bit loud and parents were letting their children run all around the restaurant. I would definitely return to try more of the food because they all look incredible as they were passing by our table! If you want really great service ask for MJ or Mary Jo she was absolutely awesome!"

  • "As always, service and food were wonderful! This is one of our favorite date night restaurants."

  • "The service by far was better than the food, but the food was still good. I would recommend going here. Good salads and Tasty Desserts."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "My husband and I had dinner on Saturday night and yet again were amazed by the consistent quality of the food. We have been here many times over the past 8 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always surprisingly creative and tasty and I think very fairly priced for what you get. I love that you can get an outstanding meal in a casual atmosphere and the wait staff is always ready to assist. Try the double chocolate bread pudding with sea salt caramel ice cream - yum!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "One of our favorite places to eat. Fresh and delicious foods. Don't think we have ever had a horrible dish as everything we have tried is delish! Was awesome they offer gluten free options. This place is a local gem and we will return."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This restaurant is a gem in Castle Rock. The food is wonderful and it is quiet enough for you to enjoy conversations with your loved ones. In addition, the grow many of the herbs and vegetables, making their salads the freshest around!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "I regret to say we will not be returning to the restaurant as the noise level is excessive, too much so to enjoy dinner. The restaurant has become a noisy bar scene, not suitable for dining."

  • "Union has such an eclectic menu -- we love the variety! Lunch on 5/20 was excellent - the food was prepared perfectly and service is always top notch! We will be back! "

  • "Just love introducting new people to Union, love the small plates."

  • "We arrived early and thought we would have to wait, but we were seated immediately. Bar area was very noisy but we were seated in the other room and it was very pleasant. Saturday they have martini's for $5 all day. They are normally $11. My salad was very good. My husband had blackened tacos, and for him, they were too spicy. We would definitely come back and bring family and friends. Service was very good. Outside seating will be nice in the summer."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "We went for a late lunch on a Saturday. Happy Hour drinks were excellent! Food was very good and the service was excellent. The server was friendly and well informed about the menu. Portions are large. We would go back."

  • "My wife and I enjoy going to Union frequently. Between great meals and lively atmosphere, we always have a good evening."
    Dined on 5/9/2014
  • "I had a great time here with my wife. Excellent food, competent and attentive staff. I knocked a star off my rating because after I ordered the special of the day, I was told it was not available, and then my second choice had to be prepared differently in order to avoid a long wait. The server was apologetic, and the manager came out to apologize and comp us a dessert. We will be back to Union--worth the 30 minute drive for us. Website gave an accurate picture of atmosphere--friendly neighborhood restaurant--which is not always the case. Wine bottles half price on Wednesdays!"

  • "Went for lunch with a group, have been here many times before and had much better food. Usually I love the Thai chicken flatbread, this time it was dry and bland, kind of a disappointment."

    Dined on 4/19/2014
  • "My wife and I took some out-of-town friends to Union for dinner on Friday night. We usually order their small plates, and always have one or more of their Po Boy tacos, Thai flatbread, French fries, fried green beans, pork shoulder, or Cobb salad. Union mixes up their menu regularly so we were forced to try something different. The Italian egg rolls, beef tenderloin flatbread, and fish tacos made for a great meal. We never leave disappointed."
    Dined on 4/18/2014
  • "food was very good and always love the peanut butter bite! service was slow and that was a surprise. otherwise enjoyed lunch"

    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Very accommodating and cheerful staff. The food though was hit and miss. While their signature pork chop was excellent and a delight the accompanying Cole slaw was watery and flavorless. Their take on Cajon pasta was bland any only contained two shrimp. The small plate Thai Flatbread was both tasty and generously portioned."

  • "Terrific meal with terrific service. The coconut cream pie was the BEST ever!!!"
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "What a treat! Mussels on the lunch menu with a succulent sauce and adequate baguettes to enjoy the full flavor. I have eaten mussels in Belgium, Denver - where many sauce choices are available but Union's mussels were the best - in flavor and texture. An extensive menu. Very friendly service too."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The quality, quantity and variety of the selections was great Friday night, and the servers and other staff, as always, were friendly and welcoming. For the first time in a long time, we (party of 3) had to wait about 15 minutes past our 7 PM reservation time for a table that was of equal quality to what we had asked for through Open Table. Once seated (great corner table!), service was slow, yet unfailingly pleasant. This is our favorite Castle Rock restaurant and a single evening of uneven service cannot change that!"
