Not my first time here but we always enjoy it! I recently became a vegetarian and there are plenty of meat-free options here! We had the fried cauliflower as an app and I had the veggie press sandwich. Delicious!

This was our first time to Union and Finch as we live out of town. There was only outdoor seating available but we went for it anyway due to great reviews. So glad we went. Food and service were great and worth being a little cold. I would totally go again and sit outside but would dress a little warmer. Thanks for a great evening!!

The entire menu is tremendous and the atmosphere is awesome. The Brunch is the best in the Lehigh Valley and the "Cold Brew Martini" is one of my favorite drinks, anywhere. Reservations through Open Table are HIGHLY recommended and parking is always an adventure, even more so following a snow storm, but the destination is worth the effort.

Worst experience during COVID yet. Seated directly at the door in full winter weather. Asked to move due to the cold every time the door opened, and told we had to keep our exact table (we had reserved a regular table in the dining room and were given a high top in the bar at the door because “we can’t really meet open table requests, only direct phone calls”. We decided to keep our coats on and stay since we had been looking forward to this night out. Then the people waiting for tables started to surround our seating. Very uncomfortable since we had masks off to eat and people were standing less than 2 feet from us. We asked for the manager and she did come and asked the crowd to wait outside or in their cars, but never addressed us despite our asking for her. To top it off we were informed “someone is waiting for your table, just so you know” by a server when we will still finishing our meals... we thought we had 1.5 hours and this “warning” came at the 1 hour mark. We felt rushed and exposed to strangers at an unsafe distance. It’s a shame because we honestly used to love this space. We were made to feel like a nuisance for wanting to feel comfortable and safe. I get that it was our choice to come out- but we expected something much different... definitely not worth the cost for this experience at all.

We decided to eat outside, and although it was a very cold day, we stayed warm and the heat lamp was very much appreciated! We called upon arrival and were promptly greeted outside. We brought blankets with us that helped. food and drink were delicious! Would definitely recommend.

Dined outside due to covid and party size. Food was great and so was service especially for being outside and away from everything. It was cold out and they provided blankets and made sure our hot coffee was always filled.

This was the second time we went to Union and Finch. We came for Christmas in January at the Hotel Bethlehem. The server was not friendly AT ALL. She was short and hardly even “smiled” (she had a mask on) when our two year olds said thank you for the milk she brought. My husband loves to make small talk and she wanted NONE of it. We then saw her at another table engaging with a baby, at the child’s level talking and waving.
The food was ok. We got the bananas foster waffle but the banana was clearly under ripe. It’s served with syrup but still felt dry. Also had the breakfast poutine which was amazing.
The bartenders make an AMAZING Bloody Mary and the mimosa flight was so fun.
Maybe we’ll go back, maybe we won’t this time.

Food was very good. My husband and I shared the cheese curds for appetizer. I had the chicken tikka masala which was tasty and spicy. My husband had the Union Burger. Cooked perfectly. The quality of meat is excellent. The hand-cut truffle fries delicious.

Good food and atmosphere, only complaint would be the high top chairs having no backs. Makes extended sitting a little uncomfortable.
