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
  • "Great to sit outdoors in good weather. Very busy so service a little slow. Allow 1 1/2 hrs min. Sea bass was superb but needs at least one side to be filling."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "I have eaten at the Union Rooftop three times. I am impressed every time. I don't eat meat so my choices are always limited. My family likes meat and chicken. The Rooftop offers great food for all of us. Great martinis or wine! Portions are appropriate so you don't feel over fed when you leave. Knowing that, salads and appetizers are a good idea before your meal."

  • "I've been to the Rooftop a few times and have always enjoyed the food and service, but my last visit didn't turn out so great. I had water spilled over me when a serve knocked the glass over, the roof started leaking during a thunderstorm right over my grandma's head, and we waited 30-45 min for a dessert."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "Friend and I had brunch, great atmosphere. Loved the unique feel the lack of a roof lent to the occasion. From what we could tell it would be accomidating for any group size."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "This was my second visit to the Union and it was again enjoyable. The appetizer portions were a bit small but reasonably priced during the happy hour. Great atmosphere and the staff is top notch."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "We just had appetizers which were tasty but came to the table cold. Person 2 tables over complained about the food and manager was trying to make them happy. Alright but nothing special."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was fantastic. Greatly exceeded my expectations. Our server got busy and disappeared during out main course but other than that he was fantastic. He knew the menu and every recommendation he made was excellent. My scallops were perfectly cooked which is hard to find!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "This is a great rooftop restaurant, especially as the sun goes down. Plus, the sangria was simply amazing."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Had 2 appetizers, the Asian wings & taco trio. Wings were slightly undercooked & slimy. Tacos had mostly cabbage & were tasteless. Beer served was on the warm side which was not appealing when sitting in the sun outside. All 4 dinners served were small & overpriced. Will not return.5110"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "We had few check backs. The check came without being asked for it when we wanted to order coffee and an after dinner drink. The coffee we ordered came 15 minutes late and cold."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Service was poor (e.g., server was especially unhelpful and borderline rude when it came to assisting one of our guests with an allergy) and the food lacked flavor and presentation. The restaurant was flexible with our reservation which was nice, but we sat right by the kitchen door and that added unpleasant noises to the experience. I dig the rooftop. Other aspects need improvement."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food could use some help. It's almost like there isn't a real chef in the back cooking, more like some cheap labor cooks!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We dined at 5:00 on the 4th of July, so it was early and a bit more quiet that I suspect would usually be the case. The roof was open, the sky was overcast, and the temperature was perfect. The two of us shared the Margharita flatbread pizza, a side of the roasted brussel sprouts, and the lobster BLT. All were excellent."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The food was great!!!! Everyone was so kind including management. My husband recently had eye surgery and all we're trying to get us a table that wasn't looking directly into the sun. We will definitely come back!!!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Union. The service was great and the outdoor setting wonderful. Could offer more wine by the glass options."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Great view of downtown Minneapolis. Good food and service. Beautiful summer evening. Ahhh."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "The atmosphere was way too noisy. I was hoarse by the end of dinner. The website really depicted a much more intimate type setting. I wouldn't recommend this to friends"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We used to go to Union Rooftop quite a bit when it first opened, but have been disappointed by the menu and quality of food in the last year or so. Gone are more foodie-oriented items like the chicken liver parfait, replaced with an expanded flatbread pizza and sandwich menu. At least the service had remained exceptional, but this time we were seated in a different section than usual and were left unattended for at least 30 minutes by our server. For the entire meal she was disinterested in us, and numerous times appeared to forget what we had ordered, or neglected to check and see if the items we did order were delivered to our table."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "I overheard someone say "this is where the fun is" and I couldn't agree more. It is special to sit on a rooftop. Although there are better views elsewhere, the idea that you can't be rained out and that this is a valiant experiment to trick MN into being hospitable weatherwise is a treat. I enjoyed the food, the service and my fellow diners."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "It was cold and very noisy in the restaurant. Lots of big groups made it difficult to have a quiet conversation. But the food and service were great. And if it hadn't been a stormy evening, we could have enjoyed the rooftop a bit more."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Lobster linguini was excellent, homemade pasta and succulent, plentiful lobster! Outstanding. The rest of the people in my party had skirt steak salad and salmon salad, all above average. The only complaint would be poor to fair service, I think our waitress was new or not well trained. We asked for bread to go with our lobster after it was already served and then she said, oh yes, that is complementary. She did not refill our water glasses enough and the water was warm when we did have to ask for it. We had the blueberry crumble which was wonderful, but not enough ice cream or crumble. It was mostly blueberries."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "We didn't pick the most optimal day. Because it was very windy, my long hair was all over the place, and I should have placed it in a clip beforehand. I imagined that we would have had a choice to be outside or inside- it was only outside. I had the sea bass which was very flavorful. My husband was thoroughly happy with the salmon, however, because we dine out often, the high number of dining experiences had us both thinking that Union Fish Market was worthy of a B+ grade overall. We had a Living Social deal which made it a perfect opportunity to experience UFM for the first time. There are other Twin Cities' restaurants specializing in fish we'd rather patronize."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "At first it seemed a little young for us (40-50) but really it wasn't. The food was good - not fantastic. The wait staff is what impressed me the most. At the bar and also our waiter, Matt. Very informative, polite and friendly. The noise was a bit cafeteria-like. It was a rainy night and thought it might seem quieter if the retractable roof were open. We will probably go again on a nice night when the roof can be opened."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Compliments to the chef and staff for preparing a delicious meal. Each course was well presented and full of flavor! We would come back and try something else. Our server and the support staff were very attentive and helpful. Great job!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We sat on the rooftop with friends and had great cocktails with a fabulous view!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We went to the roof about 5PM. Zero shade, very hot sun, rather uncomfortable. By 6:30 it helped that the sun was blocked by buildings. I really don't think the view is anything special. Maybe it is better with lights on after dark. No greenery in sight. Too windy to open table umbrellas. We will not return. The server was excellent!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great place for stopping in and having a drink and app, but dinner, no, to noisy and tables are way to close to have even a quite conversation. Our food was ok, did not come out of kitchen prepared correctly, had to send back. Nice place and great views of Minneapolis. Great service too!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Kale salad was wonderful as was the seafood ceviche, the fillet and the blueberry cobbler dessert. Noisy on a Friday night"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great appetizers, dinner entree was decent selection but much too much salt. Had the lobster pasta. Plenty of lobster! Just way too much salt."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Great, trendy place, kind of windy that night, but it is outdoors. Great food, would like to see a broader menu. Would definitely go back."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "The food, service, setting all exceptional! Allison our server was fun & efficient."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "We arrived at Rooftop just prior to our reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was curtious and provided us with a leisurely dining experience. Salads and appetizers were delicious. Would visit again."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "I think the food was good but not great. My burger was just a bit over cooked. Service was outstanding, very attentive and helpful. It's a fun spot. My biggest issue was that I did not receive 1000 points for the Open table reservation. I called & was told by the hostess they had checked us in & to contact Open Table; the error had to be on their part. After many attempts to contact Open Table by email and phone, getting no replies and 4 days I OT replied and said they needed proof I was there with a receipt sent to them. I again called the restaurant, asked for a manager. FINALLY found out I was reported as a "no show." He resolved it & I was awarded my points. THEY WERE NOT THAT BUSY AND THIS WAS A REAL HASSLE."

  • "Great atmosphere, great food, very slow service, but great place for a late night dinner and night on the town. Guys, bring your girlfriends or wives there and they will be very impressed. I was very pleased myself, and I will be going back in the near future."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Service was amazing. The food is not wonderful(espcially for the price) but it is not terrible either. Fairly small portions and price is pretty high due to those portions. The atomosphere was phenomenial. The service and atmosphere by far made up for just haven't adequate food/portions."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "After all the rain, heat and humidity, it was a beautiful night to be on the Union Rooftop! Great apps and drinks for Happy Hour!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Was not very impressed with the food that we ordered. The calamari was good, but not fantastic. The tuna melt appetizer was quite heavy for me, very heavy on the sauce so the ahi tuna was not able to stand out. I will go back only because the atmosphere was awesome. Will likely try out their happy hour as it appeared to be pretty decent $4-7 plates."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "View on a nice summer day is enchanting. Very loud, tables extremely close together and the food is just so so. Nothing for those with wanting a culinary experience. Probably best for HAPPY HOUR."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We arrived at 4:55 for our 5 pm reservation. we were told we had to wait 5 minutes to be seated until a server arrived. Others checked in after us, but were called for their table before we were. After complaining, we were seated (they were seating by alphabetical order, not by time of arrival) and then waited almost 20 minutes before a server showed up, and again only after we complained to one of the other bus people. Our food came promptly, and was very good. The redeeming part of the evening was that the manager apologized, didn't charge us for drinks, and then gave us a $25 gift card. We will give them another chance, but not at 5 pm."

  • "Having never been here before I had high expectations for some reason. While some of the fun was taken away because most of the roof was not retracted, I was able to overlook that. The cozy corner table would be good right? Well not so cozy when you are right by the kitchen corner. Too much in and out action for cozy. Not sure if there could be a better solution for that corner, but it is not the first spot you should sit someone when there are other tables available. The food was very good though my husband ordered the filet medium rare and I would say it was closer to medium well. Our server was less than fine restaurant quality. He was not able to multi-task. It was fun to see once, next time I will go back to Seven."
