    Great food. Wings, kimchi fries and cauli wings were delish! Long roomy tables. Not crowded. Can talk. For noisier as the night went on but not that bad. Good selection of happy hour Drinks. Would visit again. Service was very attentive.

    Great food and service. Seating a bit squished. Restaurant was too loud to communicate With anyone who wasn’t directly beside you. I would go back with a smaller group.

    We went for brunch and the food was great, as were the drinks and beer selection. Unfortunately the service wasn't very good, even though we had made a reservation in advance. We had to wait ages for drinks, food and the bills, all of which were forgotten at some point or another. Our meals all came out at different times, which was also a bit awkward.

    we were a large group, but had made the reservation with weeks of notice. eggs were overdone for everyone except the one person who wanted hardboiled (and she got runny eggs). service was better/friendlier for some at the table more than others.

    We were a large group with a couple of kids. Server was accommodating with our order. Super delicious food was out of the box due to fusion influence, a welcome change to a traditional breakfast. We are visiting from out of town or we would be regulars here. Looking forward to coming back. Bench seating, if that matters to you.

    I've been a regular at El Camino's for a few years - I live right near it. I've been meaning to try The Union for quite awhile because I knew it was a sister restaurant but just don't find myself down there that often. About 3 weeks ago we made the trip and it was great! Loved it. So last Sunday I went there with a girlfriend for brunch and she also loved it and will be bringing her husband back. It's casual, it's yummy, the staff are fun, cool room, Happy Hour all day on Sundays (like Camino's) - awesome. I'm a new fan.

    We had our monthly dinner club here at The Union in December and we were not disappointed! Excellent service and unique food options. Very accommodating, especially for our group of 12. There were lots of choices, and I really thought the unique drinks were a highlight. Although I did find them a bit pricey for the SIZE of drinks we received. But very, very tasty. Thanks for an incredible evening!

    Came here for my 30th birthday dinner. Really cool spot. Good service, great food, bench seating so our group all felt close together. Food is meant for sharing but we were all able to order our own dishes and it was enough food for a single order. Would recommend and would come again!

    Came for brunch for Father's Day! Made a reservation, though place wasn't too busy, seated promptly! Would've loved to try many items on the menu so we will be back! Great fusion of Filipino and Western food. We all had brunch items. Bao Bennies a must-try! Lapu Lapu drink very refreshing! Restaurant, itself, is tasteful in decor and welcoming, trendy!

    We used to go here a lot after our soccer games because it was a perfect spot for a larger group. I recently went again, and it seems a few things have done downhill a bit. For example, the food was only "ok", the Banga tasted watered down, the service was super slow and impossible to get another drink, and the tables were set so close together that when I tried to shuffle my way out, I banged my knee so hard on one of the benches. Ouch! I had one of the mains, I forget the name, but it had pork meatballs with noodles in a coconut broth. For the hefty bill at the end of the night, I definitely went home a little hungry. Oh, and my beer was definitely not cold enough. Union...please get your act together - you could be so much better!

    Loved our server Shivan. She was super friendly and helpful. We would sit in her section again and request it. Ambiance good and music great~ we could actually have a proper conversation. Kimchi fries were tasty but wished they had more meat in it. Chicken wings amazing. Will be back.

    Good ambience, food was just passable, either very bland or overly seasoned. They served their hot and sour soup cold and we had to get it reheated. Service was disappointing as well. Dessert was amazing though

    Went here for dineout and the menu choices were pretty good. Service was ok but our food came out incredibly SLOW! We waited over 10 mins after they had already cleaned up our appetizers and then waited another 10+ minutes after they cleared our entrees just to get a piece of cake. Also, my husband didn't know that his Viet coffee had alcohol as the menu didn't say it clearly. Mixed feelings about this experience.

    Yeah overall it was good. I wouldn't say it was exceptional. But I enjoy going to the Union with groups of people, the communal tables are great when you may have a person or two joining. The service was good. Nothing over the top. The food is really tasty and unique. Its not to loud in there which is awesome when you are trying to visit. If you are going there for a birthday, note that they charge an additional cost if you bring in your own dessert. Not unusual, a lot of places do. It was a $3 charge to put the brownie they got me on a plate.

    Came here for a birthday dinner. The food and drinks were good and the restaurant is nice but it was too noisy to hear everyone in my group (there were about 10 people). I could hear the people seated right next to me but not a few seats down or even across from me. It would be fine for a smaller group (6 people max) or maybe at lunch when it's quieter. Overall was happy with the experience and the service.
