This restaurant is a little gem. We were in Allentown on business and had a lovely dinner there with five people. The menu offered a wide range of offerings, all of which were delicious--from appetizers to entrees. Also, there was some cool and interesting features, like a pickle jar for an appetizer and vegan spaghetti squash with a tomato pomodoro sauce! Unfortunately, no one tried dessert, but maybe next time. The service was perfect--friendly and accommodating. We would definitely eat there again. As an added bonus, it has an off-street parking lot...if you're in Allentown, I would definitely recommend it.

Everything was excellent, my only complaint was that the gnocchi in my dish seemed VERY soft. Like, nearly mashed when I chewed them. Perhaps I’m used to eating gnocchi that are soft in the center with a slight crisp to the outside? Either way it didn’t deter me from enjoying the whole meal immensely. And oh my godddddd the poutine! GET IT!

As usual our visit to Union and Finch was pleasurable. The service was excellent and the cocktails were tasty. As an appetizer my wife and I shared the fried cauliflower which we had on a previous visit and it was just as good as the first time. As our entree we shared the union burger which was very good. We also shared a new addition to their menu, the lobster roll. I was very anxious to try the lobster roll as it’s usually a favorite of ours when we could find them. I must say the lobster meat was tender and was abundantly stuffed into the roll, however I didn’t find the sandwich very tasty at all. It’s just lacked something. I wouldn’t order it again as it is but I would hope they would redo their edition of the lobster roll and perhaps I would be willing to give it another try.

We had a great experience at Union & Finch. We went for brunch, and had the shakshuka and a burger and both were good. Service was attentive and friendly. We would definitely come back on our way through Allentown again.

This is the second time my fiancé and I came to Union and Finch for brunch and it’s been amazing each time. We get checked on occasionally and never have to call for refills or condiments because they are very attentive. The owner also comes out and checks to see if everything is ok which is awesome. I’ve recommended this location to all my friends. Their dinner is also spectacular!

The vibe was perfect. My vegetarian loaf was excellent, especially the cream sauce. The coconut cheesecake was also excellent. Our server was attentive, efficient and friendly and answered all our questions. The prices were perfect.

We have a core group of friends that love going to Union & Finch! We love the food, atmosphere and the staff are also amazing! Even the owner frequently visits our table to check on things!
We love the Sunday brunch as our new favorite breakfast spot! And, Thursday Burger & Beer special is precious! So happy we found this Gem!

Always great food and obviously quite popular as both the dining and bar areas were full to capacity. Definitely not a romantic destination as the close set up of tables and noise level make conversation a bit of a challenge. Otherwise always a favorite for a great meal, especially for brunch!

I got the Crab Po Boy sandwich - - it was delish! White chunks of crab, in this delicious sauce and served on a toasted roll. Would definitely get again! My hubby got the chicken and waffles - to die for! Chicken was so tender and had a fantastic flavor and the waffles were soft and sweet! Great combo!

Union and Finch was suggested by a friend as a great place to enjoy a meal. The food did not disappoint, and the burger and brew deal provided some serious value. The ambiance and aesthetic was clean with beautiful tables, a space that glows during the day and sets the mood at night.

This was our first time at Union and Finch and we'll definitely be going back again. The service was great as was the food. It was a little loud at times but there were a couple or larger groups that contributed to that. I could see that they have acoustic tiles installed which probably helps keep the sound level reasonable. All around a really good dining experience.
