    Service was poor, waited 20 mins after being seated for wait staff to approach our table for drinks order, then waited an hour for food and then when it was served some was missing. Very disappointing after all the good things we’d heard about it.

    Food and our waiter were excellent. Only downside was our reception which got the evening off to a bad start. There was some kind of hold up causing a queue of about 8 to be waiting to be seated. A couple even waiting in the rain as the reception area is small. When finally "greeted" it was with a terse "who's next". No apology for the wait, it was like we were in a two dollar shop. Frankly if it had not been a Saturday night we could easily have turned around and gone elsewhere. A shame as the food is very good, as was our waiter.

    Fabulous restaurant in the centre of town, great atmosphere and surprisingly busy for a Sunday evening in Autumn. Big wine list, mostly supporting local producers which is so good to see. I am still dreaming of the steak.

    The Union Bank building is absolutely charming, inside and out; its ambience is amazing. We shared three snacks and a small plate and they were absolutely delicious. The only thing that put a downer on our evening was that our hostess was competent but not helpful and lacked warmth. We noticed the other hostess’s were extremely friendly and helpful including the hostess who farewelled us.

    The small serve of sirloin was delicious. The pieces of meat were pink, moist and flavoursome. The accompanying gem salad complmented the dish perfectly. A glass of Tattinger bubbles completed the little lunchtime indulgence.

    The beef was overcooked (they offered to recook it and at the end, took it off the bill - we did not expect that), so they rectified the problem. The chips had chicken salt on them - really?? The sides were salads - the beef and pork chop would have been better accompanied by small carrot, snow peas and beans. The pork gravel was beautiful but difficult to get onto our plate - maybe provide a spoon so that patrons can spoon the gravy onto their meal. Finally, I was disappointed that the wine I chose was not available. Not a big issue but it was a wine we were interested in trying. We'll give it another try next time we are in Orange to see if we have a better experience.

    Love the food! Atmosphere was amazing! Would highly recommend for a special night out! Service was very good, happy with everything. Pork was bigger than I would imagined make sure you have enough people to share it with😅 Sirlion was superb, juicy and tender! I would definitely come back!

    The Union Bank has a lovely dining room with interesting lighting, tables are not crowded together. The meals are all designed for sharing, stand outs were the pate, octopus and pork chop. Friendly and efficient service, and a good local wine list.

    Greeted by a very welcoming waitress and taken into the beautiful Schoolhouse restaurant. The waitress was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and was happy to make recommendations. Food was beautifully presented and very tasty. The decor and ambiance is lovely and the overall ethos and feel of the restaurant relaxed, warm, inclusive and inviting. Highly recommend.

    Our romantic evening started out with the waiter spilling water all over my pants and jacket. Then we asked for the feedme degustation menu. They were unable to provide pasta for me and beef for him. When the meal arrived it was evident that they supplied one plate to share. The cottage cheese some bread and 3 anchovies were poor fare for $75 each. The main course was beef which was very raw and just been seared. I sent it back. Again it was a small 200 gm serve for 2 people. This place has a reputation which is not warranted. I can eat a huge meal at Tonic for $100 a head this time I was starving.

    While the ambience of the courtyard was wonderful and the food was outstanding, we were disappointed that the meal took such a long time to be served - it seemed that one plate arrived at a time, with quite a wait between plates.

    It was a Tuesday night but the courtyard was almost full and with good reason. The food, the ambiance, the service all wonderful. We had the feed me menu choice as we found it too hard to choose from all the wonderful offerings. It was also my birthday and The Union Bank was perfect to make it a very special night. Love, love, love it!

    Lovely place. Food was good quality, although most dishes are designed to be shared. So as a result there are not many options for couples with differnt paletts. Now the service was terrible. For some reason we had two? One was lovely and informative. The other however was rude and condersending. Didn't ask how I wanted my steak cook and when I chased her down to tell her, I don't belive she informed the kitchen due to my steak being undercooked. Very strange experience from her for other items as well. Probably should have said something but didn't want to ruin or evening.

    We fancied lunch so we caught the train from Katoomba. We had the feed me option with wines. One of the reds was a bit too young, but it didn't matter. Good food, good service.
