The food and service are consistently great! Almost everything on the menu can be altered to accommodate food allergies (gluten free in my case). The outdoor patio is very dog friendly as well.

The noise level in the back was way too loud. Very difficult to have a conversation

They were fantastic! The food is always good, but we had extra people invite themselves to the reservation. The staff helped make it work, and we were so grateful. TY for being amazing.

Stopped in for a late lunch and everything from the service and food were excellent. My Union burger was cooked to perfection and the bartenders were a delight to conversate with. The owners even took time to stop by and make sure everything was up to par. I love coming here as the atmosphere, service and food are always consistent. Everyone must stop by this gem of a restaurant.

Overall very good food and cocktails (Little Black Lie). The cocktail was not too sweet but refreshing and had a kick. My salmon was delicious but I was disappointed that there wasn’t more spinach since the menu stated it was over creamed spinach. Nice friendly atmosphere! Server was great!

We had a very good experience. My Aunt was in from NJ and we took her to dinner. The service was wonderful, smiling, attentive, and helpful when asked for advice on some items on the menus. We had the Fried Cauliflower for a table app it was wonderful. The drinks were playful and wonderful we had the Blueberry Smash and cucumber martini. For dinner we had crab cakes which were wonderful, Mussles Frietes, and the amazing salmon dishes. All were wonderful and so tasty. Thank you for a great introduction to the allentown food scene for my Aunt.

Service was EXCELLENT! Husband had a burger and said it was delicious, and cooked perfectly. I had the mussels in "wine broth", but the broth was more like a cream sauce. Not quite as described, but they were cooked perfectly. Drinks were great! There were a lot of yummy looking dishes coming out of the kitchen past us- we plan on going back!

I thought the brunch was awesome only noticed my friend’s lunch order crepes significantly smaller than when I had ordered them last. This was before COVID, I’m not sure if you do the prices and supply to the restaurant maybe giving smaller portions. When I ordered the crepes there were three crepes in the plate. My friend’s order it was one crepe cut in three pieces. I noted and told her that the portion that she had gotten was a lot smaller the taste was still as good she shared. My brunch was awesome I order the Souzhuska and it was finger licking.

Sat outside which was very nice. Got our order in and water/drinks came out quickly. Appetizer came out shortly afterwards and then our meal. Everything was delicious and the wait staff was attentive.

Got to the restaurant early and enjoyed wonderful full service seated at the bar. We were quite comfortable and asked to stay there instead of being moved to the main dining room. Staff was busy but extremely charming and attentive- can’t wait to go back!

Outside seating desperately needs shade. Burger was absolutely the best I've ever had...and gluten free, which made me very happy. I think the servers outside are tired of running back and forth (rightly so), so seemed a bit short with us. Really great food...will try again when we can eat inside or if they get some kind of shade for the summer.

First visit to this eatery. The service was very good; friendly and welcoming. The place has a nice set up with an outside patio area as well and very clean. The food was average. We felt that the sandwich (Chopped Cheese) was tasty but not memorable. The french fries were overdone and dry. I would definitely visit again and try something different on the menu. The do offer brunch on both Saturday and Sunday.
