A word from UNION Rooftop
A word from UNION Rooftop

Experience the Union of talent, creativity, art, food, and design.

Kaskaid Hospitality has been credited with bringing dining in the Twin Cities to new heights, and UNION Fish Market is the crown jewel in its latest unveiling of unique hospitality concepts. Painstaking attention was paid to every detail, from restoring the building’s original architectural treasures to installing the one-of-a-kind retractable rooftop. Kaskaid engaged a talented culinary team that holds themselves to the highest standards, following self-imposed rules to ensure every dish is special, surprising, and cohesive. We have created a menu that can be experienced in just the right proportions, from an elegant snack before the theater, to a celebratory 5-course tasting menu featuring ingredients that change daily.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Over-priced food with small portions and VERY limited menu. Rooftop deck is small with minimal view of downtown. There are other rooftop areas within site of this one that provide a much better atmosphere and overall dining experience. Service was unusually slow - it took over 10 minutes to receive our first drink order and almost 20 min before a waiter actually wanted to take our food order! This with over half the tables open!"

  • "This is my second time at the Union. I won't be back . It is very noisy and so crowded . We had to try to slide in and out of our chairs without trying to bother the people behind us. Service was nothing great , slow and not very friendly . The food was salty ! Everything we ate was salty from the salad to the pizza. With so many great options in the area , I would suggest looking for another outdoor eating hotspot ."

  • "The food was expensive and really not very good. We had to take back one of our dinners because it was cold and all they did was reheat and it was still cold. Our server was great and she not the manager took the cost of meal off our bill."

  • "My wife and I went to Union rooftop for a nice evening out downtown. For an appetizer we ordered the Local Cheese plate, which unfortunately was the best part of our meal. The cheese's had great flavor and when combined with the grilled bread and fruit compote really made it enjoyable. For dinner my wife ordered the Lobster Linguini and I ordered the Filet Mignon. My wife had to send back her Linguini because it wasn't even lukewarm when delivered. There was maybe 2 pieces of lobster that you could actually see in her dish. My steak had no flavor or seasoning on it. It was supposed to have a port wine sauce on it, but it was absorbed into the potato's. Our waitress was very good and the ambiance is great, but the food was disappointing."

  • "Great spot for an "after a long week" date night. Bartenders were attentive on the rooftop and the Appletini was delicious. Food was good, but the halibut could have a little more flavor. Definitely want to go again and try some other dishes."

  • "The food and service was top notch - 5 star! When we arrived it was cloudy and humid so they had the roof closed and the noise was so loud that we couldn't even hear the server. It was impossible to talk. Later in the evening they opened the roof and the experience was fantastic. My recommendation is to check on the status of the roof. Perhaps eat downstairs then go upstairs and sit outside for a drink and dessert if the roof is not open."

  • "Great outdoor dining, a little loud but at least high up so no exhaust and car noise . Food and wine good and people watching was fun :)"

  • "We started our night at Union Workshop and had three of their small plates. All were wonderful and very well priced. We had dinner and dessert at Union Rooftop. What a lovely space. Our food was very good, from the steak, to pasta to salads. We will be back."

  • "We arrived slightly late due to traffic. Worried about time to eat and make it to the show at the Orpheum. No Problem. Our waiter was helpful with menu questions, served our drinks, salads and entrees, and got us out the door with time to spare. Whew! Nice job. But how was the food? Outstanding! The pork chop was tender, flavorful and more than ample with a tasty sauce on potatoes. The sea bass was done just right - flaky and not over cooked. So good with a nice spicy sauce underneath. The filet was tender and so flavorful. Each dish was presented on the plate beautifully. We will be back."

  • "Although we were seated without any problem, they had no record of our reservation at the host stand. Once seated, our server was great and the food good. Roof was closed, so it was quite loud."

  • "Made a reservation once, didn't show up due to some emergency. But made a second one, took my wife on a date there and wow, we were very pleased with the service and food! I must say that "The All American Double Patty Burger" is the BEST burger I have ever tried in my life! The view is great, the weather was perfect, so eating on a rooftop was absolutely a must! Definitely recommend UNION to anyone who wants to experience great food with a great view all at the same time."

  • "Good food - decent view - good service. Only issue was the noise level. They pack way to many tables into the small dining aria."

  • "The staff and food were both good but its food portion (appetizer, entree) was way inadequate for the price; even my 7 yr old was still left hungry. Otherwise, I'd still recommend it, but as a place for drinks and hangout."

  • "I had been there before for brunch, but my 9 friends had not. They all loved it!"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The food was good. We started with a cheese plate and had a ceasar salad. Both were very well done. We were also very pleased with our entrees. The seating felt very cramped. Our entire party had to literally squeeze into our tables. The cramped area made service challenging too. A lot of drinks, refills and food passed in front of other people. Sitting outside was better than inside with the roof on. Insanely loud when the roof is on. My suggestion, go for a couple drinks and then head someplace else for dinner."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The seating/table was close to each other when I leaned back I touched the back of the person that sat the table behind me. It was very noisy place. I would recommend to someone but personally will not see me there again."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I wasn't terribly impressed with our entrees (with the exception of the lamb shank, that was FANTASTIC). The lobster in my meal was overcooked and a bit on the chewy side and my friend's sweet potato gnocchi were flavorless. The desserts were much better than the meals. The margarita panna cotta was delicious even though the combo sounded strange. The view is lovely and the waitstaff were friendly and efficient. I would be more apt to go there for just drinks and dessert next time around."

  • "We went to Union Rooftop for dinner before a Twins game. The service from Alex was great. The patio could use a couple more umbrellas..it was smoking hot out. The food was only ok...our group had the scallops, rigatoni and the pork chop. Not one of the dishes would make us come back or be ones that we would recommend."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Me and my wife went here for our three year wedding anniversary. The food and service was excellent. They gave us a card that everyone signed and a free dessert but the portions of food where a joke. I had two beers and my wife had one drink, both got our meals and no apps. Ended up spending just under $100 and left Hungary. I got a lamb chuck and 75% of it was bone with no meat. My wife got the lobster pasta and it was maybe as big around as a cd. Will not dine here again!!"

  • "I reserved a table for 11 people a week in advance for a birthday dinner. I reserved it for a Friday night at 8pm. I arrived & checked in with the hostess at 7:50pm. I was told that table would be ready in a few mins. After waiting 15 mins, I brought it to the hostess attention that we had a reservation and are still waiting to be seated. Finally a manager came over to us and proceeded to tell us the table will be ready shortly, and that went on for about 25 more minutes. At 8:55pm we were seated in the back of the restaurant, where it was extremely hot and covered. I chose this restaurant because it was on a rooftop and had a nice view. But I did not get that. Our view above us was a glass enclosure. Not the beautiful skyline of downtown!"

  • "Had a great evening at The Union.....Allyson..our server was delightful...food was amazing....and experience was great. It was a beautiful summer evening in Minneapolis and it was an excellent way to celebrate the warm weather after our horrid winter. We will return soon!"

  • "UNION did not reach my high expectations. I have heard the restaurant to be a great place to dine, but I was not pleased. The views are great, only if you are in the right seats (which I was not). The food was inconsistent on seasoning and taste. Also, the service was horrendous. Our waitress was extremely rude and made quite a few sly and sarcastic remarks towards me and my friend. She completely messed up our order and never brought us our drinks. However, another server came up to our table and took care of us beautifully. I was not impressed with UNION and I do not plan to go back, it does not live up to the hype."

  • "Drink had to remade; appetizer very good; dinner - not so good. Filet was to be medium rare which it was but it came out warm and had no flavor - I don't think they even salt and peppered the steak. I would not recommend this for dining - maybe a quick drink and app for the outdoor rooftop experience but that is it."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The food was excellent but the choices were limited. The attention to detail in presentation food and the quality of the stemware used was impressive. The retracting glass roof makes this a year-round outdoor dining destination. Loved it."

  • "We reserved a table weeks in advance of a pre-concert anniversary dinner. When we arrived our table was not available and after waiting 1/2 an hour in chaos we left without being seated. Because there were two big events downtown that evening we were unable to be seated elsewhere (even downstairs could not accommodate us) and went to the concert without dinner. It was a terrible letdown to a wonderfully planned evening."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I was surprised by the lack of umbrellas on an exposed rooftop in the middle of summer, on a very hot and sunny afternoon. The experience would have been much more enjoyable if the space had more items that provided shade. The service was OK and the food was similar. I might try the location in the evening."

  • "Had a late dinner here after going to an event at the state theater. The only down side was that my party had to wait 10 mins for a table to clear out but that ended up working out better and was able to pick a table with a great view of downtown. The staff was apologetic for the wait but it didn't bother my party. The donuts where amazing and everyones drink was made well. Our service was great and brought our food right away but it took a little bit to get our drinks from the crowded bar. So be patient when it is packed. Otherwise it was perfect! Can't wait to try brunch here."

    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "Given the fabulous setting and the menu prices, the food should have been more impressive. Instead, it was just okay. Nothing bad enough to send back but...well, nothing worth going back for. The savory donut holes tasted like hush puppies from Cracker Barrel; the ceviche was a bit rubbery and lacking any real flavor except for the slices of jalapeno; my friend's flatbread was probably the best choice. If I go back again, it will be for cocktails and the view."

  • "Great outdoor experience! view of the Minneapolis downtown sykline was incredible as it started to get dark. Would recommend reserving your dinner as late as possible to get the best view of lights. Also when we arrived it was very busy, every available space on the roof was being used, (very crowded-so if not comfortale around a large group of people - probably not a best choice to dine out) as we left around 9:30 or so it was clearing out. Duck breast and filet were very good. Expect to drop $100 for dinner and a couple of drinks. I would highly recommend checking the Union Rooftop out for great our dining experience."
