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 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."

  • "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."

  • "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 The glass ceiling was retracted so we could feel a gentle breeze and it's breath taking during sundown.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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "If the special Fish and Chips are still offered, try them out! Nice view if the roof is rolled back."

  • "Our party of five loved dining by the lights of the city at night. The appitizers and entrees were very good. We highly recommend the Union Restaurant for a great dining experience."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • " Very small portions. I had seafood risotto. Tasty but scant on seafood and the grain. Feel I did not get my monies worth. Went to Crave for dessert. We asked waitstaff about portion size before we ordered. He said it was generous... no way. At end of our meal we were asked how everything was and we were candid about the disappointing portions. The wait staff did not have anything to say, just gave us our bill. I have been for happy hour previously and that was a positive experience. I would not recommend for dinner."

  • "Great views and very friendly waitress BUT both where far exceeded by the entrees! The food was much better than the roof top "Bar" scene."

  • "Restaurant's outdoor rooftop dining provides a one of a kind experience. Setting and wait staff are great, but food is mediocre at best. Go for drinks and an uncomplicated dish."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "We ate early because of evening plans. The service was great until 6 pm. We finished eating our main course a little after 6, but it took 30 more minutes to order dessert and pay the bill. As a result, our relaxing dinner turned into a rush to the next event. Our server was no where to be found or walked by without making eye contact. The number of diners did increase about that time, so perhaps there was not enough staffing. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The service all around was fair. Host and servers need training on do's and don'ts. Host - pay attention to reservation requests to please your customer. Servers - don't rub your nose and face at the table and fidget around when interacting with customers. Bus used dishes right away. Be more knowledgeable about events taking place in your own restaurant to be able to answer questions. Also, "I don't know" is insufficient. Always be willing to offer to get an answer."

  • "We have dined at the Union in the past and on this occasion found that the food was not as good. Of the four meals that were ordedered three of them were poor. Service was OK but most of the food was cold and also had little quality or taste. As a group we discussed looking elsewhere to dine in the future. This is unfortunate as the view and ambiance of this restaurant is top notch. However, for what you pay for a meal the food needs to improve a lot!"

  • "Had another great time on the roof. If the weather would cooperate, someday we will experience the roof being open. ;)"

  • "Very friendly wait staff! Polenta and Brussel Sprouts were amazing. Great Turkey Burger with Avocado! View of skyscrapers & especially Target Co -- beautiful with the City Lights."

  • "We were very surprised by our meal at Union after reading earlier reviews. We had a Social deal we had to use so we decided to go anyway. We had a reservation at 6:30 and were seated immediately even though they were very crowded. Our appetizer (tenderloin sliders) and main courses (filet and sea bass) were all fabulous . It was a little too busy for us, but it was a beautiful night, a great experience, and I highly recommend the Union rooftop!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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'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
  • "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."

  • "DJ action on Sunday mornings? Didn't realize it was on and poppin when I brought my kids for an early lunch. Lots of singles and strangely... Seniors. Food is good. Service was too slow. Still fun. Menu could add something for those who don't eat carbs. Kids liked sitting on the roof and waving to people on the street."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "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
  • "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
  • "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."
