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
  • "The service was exceptional. The wait staff paid attention to details and moved our table without being prompted out of front row music which was good because we had all ages, some of whom would have had trouble hearing at that table. Everyone liked the food and the weather was beautiful for that venue."

  • "Went to Union Rooftop for the first time to have East Brunch. It was a beautiful day and sitting in the open air was awesome. The food was great, and so were the drinks! "

  • "Had a great Easter brunch menu on the rooftop. There was a DJ playing an eclectic assortment of music as well. It was a perfect location for a sunny afternoon. "

  • "Union rooftop was great. I went there on a date with my boyfriend and it was perfect. Great food, service, view and crowd. I would definitely recommend it. "

  • "We had an enjoyable dining experience at Union. The rooftop space is very nice on a Spring evening, but quite cramped when all of the tables are full. We started with the oysters, and unfortunately several of them were very sandy and had not thoroughly rinsed. The menu had a large selection and variety of dishes. Everyone in our group ended up ordering seafood and was pleased with their entrees. "

  • "From the moment I entered the place, people were attentive. I have always said that you can gauge the quality of staff when things go wrong, not right. They were willing to move my table to a quieter spot, allow a guest to taste the soup first before ordering and they exchanged a meal that was not up to my liking without any hesitation. The waitress RUBY was outstanding. "

  • "We had looked forward to trying out this new place but sadly were disappointed. The tables were so close together we could barely maneuver into our seats without bumping into people. The din/clatter had us constantly leaning in or raising our voices (even to our waiter who couldn't hear us). Our waiter Mark was great but the bussing staff were trying to clear our plates before we were even done our appetizer and then came to clear my dinner plate before my friend was done (proper etiquette is to wait until all diners are done to clear plates). As the evening wore on and the restaurant crowd lessened, conversation was easier. The food and drinks were just okay, nothing special. So based on our experience, we will not be returning. "

  • "Union Rooftop is a great restaurant in the heart of the city! Right on the strip of Hennepin Avenue near local restaurants, bars, and clubs! Great food and atmosphere overlooking the city. "

  • "We tried Union kind of spur of the moment and were very pleased. Food was great and our waiter, Matt, was very helpful and had great suggestions. The retractable rooftop is beautiful- it started snowing and it felt like we were inside a snow globe!"

  • "Union Rooftop is always a star in my book. I love to take people there when they come into town. The menu offers a wide variety of interesting things. The savory donut holes have to be experienced to appreciate them. The carpacio is always a winner as well. We had entrees that spanned the spectrum from a very nicely done caesar salad with a perfectly done soft boiled egg, to Chicken Confit and lastly a perfectly done skirt steak. Our waiter suggested a wine to us that again was outstanding. The 3 layer carrot cake with candied ginger, cream cheese mousse and orange dreamsicle. Lastly I inquired about what ports they had, our waiter suggested a Fortified Madeira which was outsanding!"

  • "Had a great evening at Union for a business dinner. The noise level made it difficult at times to hear, but besides that the atmosphere, food, and service was great. Highly recommend it for a great evening view of the city over dinner. "

  • "This was a great choice for our ladies night dinner. We had a show at the target center right after (perfect walking distance). Services was pretty good, a little slow, but server was nice. Food was great, however they were already out of a dish a few of us really wanted to try, it was only 6:00PM. All in all everyone agreed we'd go back, hopefully on a nice day so we could experience the retractable rooftop."

  • "The lobster BLTs were really good. Unique and delicious."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The atmosphere and food were great. The service was also pretty good considering how busy they were. The food prep was pretty slow - don't blame the service staff, the kitchen needs more help- we weren't the only ones who waited a good while for our food. I would recommend if you are not in a hurry - food and atmosphere worth it."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food and cocktails were outstanding, love the ambiance and the details to everything. Great new option for a down town patio. Service is fantastic which is where Crave tends to have an issue on their patio. Next time I'll need to leave room for dessert."

  • "Great ambience, great drinks. But our food order took over an hour to come out, and 1 of our orders was wrong. Person delivering food just said 'not my fault'...but that's it. I would try it one more time, but please get your service levels better. We were 20 minutes late to our concert that evening due completely to food coming out so slow."

  • "This is a great spot. A wonderful atmosphere for a Sunday morning brunch with great food. However, the morning we were there, the music which was provided by a DJ was extremely LOUD, so loud that it was difficult to talk, and for us, it ruined the wonderful ambiance of the sunny, scenic rooftop. It was a loud, party atmosphere if that's what you're looking for, but not pleasant at all for a relaxing Sunday morning brunch. When walking back to the car several hours later, the music was still blaring, so loud that it was annoying at street level."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "If I wanted to go to a downtown nightclub, I would have done that on a Friday or Saturday night. You should definitely advertise that your Sunday brunch is not good for food, ambiance, special occasions where people may actually want to talk to one another, or not good for anything other than to get your ears blasted and your mind wasted on alcohol. Your clientele are snobs of the worst class."

  • "This was my first time at Union and while the rooftop was lovely, the service was terrible. We were seated promptly, but a server did not come by for a drink order for about 15 minutes, after I flagged her down. Our food took about 45 minutes to get. Someone in my party ordered a burger without cheese, it came with cheese. Another person asked for their leftovers to be boxed up, and the waitress handed the plate off to a bus boy, where he promptly threw a pile of dirty plates on the food and the waitress didn't even notice.I ordered a coffee after my meal that was never brought to me."

  • "You have an user friendly website. We were able to view the menu and price range. It was very easy to make a reservation. I also had to change the res from 2 to 4 with no trouble. The wait staff is knowledgeable and friendly. Our table made 3 different choices (duck, salmon, and 2 scallops). We were all happy with our choice. I had the scallops and I have never tasted such a fantastic risotto - very creative."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Service was lousy. It took an hour to order our food. Fish had good flavor, but was overcooked. Not worth it at the price point. Too noisy to have a conversation, but I. Cool atmosphere and I bet with the roof fully retracted it would be fun to get some apps and drinks there."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The food was good-the service awful she never came back and offered additional cocktails, coffee or dessert. Someone should tell her that a higher check means bigger tip. It was brunch and they had a happy hour" DJ playing loud music and dancing with his head phones on. The rate this as classy. People could not even talk to each other. Please share this with the restaurant."

  • "Once again, Union rooftop didn't disappoint. Great dinner, atmosphere and scenery of the skyline. Can't wait for summer (if it ever gets here)."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "The most notable thing about Union Rooftop is of course the location. The covered glass patio is excellent for cold-weather "outdoor" dining, but bring sunglasses if you go around sunset. The food is well prepared though not always in large enough portions. My king crab salad was listed as a main course but would have been more fittingly called an appetizer. (Husband's salmon was a larger portion.) They were out of my husband's first beer choice (they comped his subsequent drink choice) and his first meal choice. Dessert was awesome and generously portioned for two to share. A nice dinner out, but it won't be a regular on our dinner list—however, I'd certainly stop in for happy hour appetizers and a drink or two, just to enjoy the setting."
    Dined on 4/1/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Union Rooftop. The ceasar salad was outstanding, do not ever change it. My only complaint was the music was way too loud, especially for such a early time of evening, (5PM) it would be nice if the level could be adjusted to fit the time of day and how many diners are in the restaurant. It was loud enough we had to lean in to hear each other and had to ask questions or responses over again as we could not hear each other sitting at a two seated table. Thanks, Happy"

  • "This is the second time we tried Sunday brunch here its all good but would be better if the DJ would turn down the volume a little bit, when the top is closed."
    Dined on 3/30/2014
  • "Our first time here to celebrate our son's birthday. The views on the rooftop dining were great and the food and service were excellent. My only complaint was the price. Almost $30 for a seafood rissoto is quite high for the amount of food served. Don't get me wrong, it was delicious and I reccommend it, but just be prepared for the bill."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "A full dining room with a banquet type party winding breaking up shortly after being seated. It was quite loud - room doesn't absorb sound well. Food was good though a bit overpriced we felt. Appetizer menu falls short. Will try the rooftop in the summer to experience the open roof."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Love the concept - the design and such. The food downstairs is much, much better than the Rooftop. It is average - and when the place is packed and it only takes 10 minutes to get your dinner...there is a quality in the food that is missing. Don't expect MN over the top dinner....more like low price patio food you might find on Lake Minnetonka bar scene. Servers and service however was excellent...very nice people working there."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "The flatbread pizzas were barely warm and the chicken confit was very average. To top it all off, we wanted martinis and they were out of martini glasses. Really? That's like McDonalds being out of fries. We will not go back. This is the second time that the food has been just average."
