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
  • "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."

  • "Fun place in nice weather. Reservation stated it was for. 30th Anniversary. Seemed significant enough for a free dessert(?)"

  • "I ordered a filet migon it was delicious I do recommend this place to everyone for a lot of different occasions"

  • "Good food - decent view - good service. Only issue was the noise level. They pack way to many tables into the small dining aria."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "So much for having reservations. They were overbooked and then couldn't accommodate us. Poorly managed."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "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."

  • "The temp was in the 80s the night we ate here and it was so comfortable still on the "Roof Top" !!"
    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."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "A nice ambiance on the rooftop. Good menu selection, but a bit expensive."
    Dined on 7/28/2014
  • "We enjoyed the afternoon with dear friends celebrating our day apart anniversaries!! Great choice for brunch, wonderful atmosphere! Our server was so friendly and gave us outstanding service. Also, a great people watching place!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Food was good. Though they were out of two food items we ordered, so we had to settle for a different option."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Had a wonderful night at Union Rooftop with friends. We got the idea from the Restaurant Week list of restaurants. Loved the set menu for 30.00, what a great deal!! Our waiter was outstanding and the food was very good. I would definitely go back!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The food was very disappointing. The service was very slow, especially to get our drinks. It was extremely overpriced for the quality of food. The wait staff was loud and clumsy. They would stand next to our table and talk loudly to each other. The only good part of the experience was the lovely rooftop. I expected a lot more from a restaurant week restaurant."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I brought my girlfriend here during restaurant week and we were both amazed at the seafood cheviche and salmon. However I was disappointed with the quality of the deserts. The view from the rooftop is outstanding! The glass ceiling was retracted so we could feel a gentle breeze and it's breath taking during sundown. I was not satisfied with the service. We had reservations for 7:30 but had to wait 30 minutes before we were seated. We even overheard that a table for 2 opened up but they let a couple that just arrived get the seats. We were finally seated in a cramped location which really took away from the ambience. I also felt rushed. I was still in the middle of my entree when a server took desert orders. Despite the service, it was good."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Great service - very attentive and friendly. Food was very good - good variety of good on the menu. Outdoor seating was great - good view and fun atmosphere. Lots of people but didn't feel crowded."

  • "On a beautiful summer night you can't beat the rooftop. The food is really average at best."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "Too loud. Voices and noise seemed to echo off of the curved roof. Nice place for a grooup to go to let loose, but I wouldn't go again for dining and expecting conversation."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The prices are laughably high for how laughably small the portions are. The flavors were truly amazing, though, I can certainly say that. And I am not being a fat American here. I know I can go to Travail or Butcher and the Boar and pay the same or less, and not feel like I'm being swindled. If you're on the company dime, maybe then you don't have to worry about price. So, it would be perfect for a dinner that you don't personally have to pay for."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "we tried The Union Rooftop during Restaurant Week and we loved what we had. The service was exceptional as was the food. The noise level is high making it hard to carry on a conversation - that may be different when retractable roof is off. The music being pumped in was grabbled that also made conversation hard. Overall loved the experience and will definitely go again especially for their interesting happy hour menu."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The food here was absolutely fabulous and the service was impeccable! Everyone at our table ordered something different and it was all great. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and was able to make recommendations, which we appreciated and utilized. We sat inside as it was a hot day but would return to sit outside and enjoy the view of downtown. The only downside was that it was extremely loud inside with the glass ceiling and very hard to hear other people unless they were right next to me. Someone with hearing issues would not do well here."

  • "Regretfully we took friends from Canada here without having tried it ourselves. Was very disappointed in both the food and service. Reservation was messed up and we were short a spot. Upon pointing this out to the waitress, she responded slowly and half-heartlyl bringing only a chair and nothing else. The food was 2 star at best. Waitress brought the mains before the appetizers were done. And pushed our bill on us by 10pm as the band was starting up. Bathrooms were disgusting. Seems this would be a great spot if you are looking to pick up - but if you're looking for a great meal in the cities - save your money for somewhere else."
