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!

Food and drinks were incredible! Ingredients were fresh, and everything was super flavorful! A great gem in downtown Allentown! Super loved the off street parking too! Also had my leftovers for lunch the next day, which were still delicious!

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.

We really like this place and wish it was in walking distance to our home!
They have installed noise control panels in the dining room and it has made a big difference !
Thanks

The food was so good. They are creative and use lots of veggies! Black bean hummus was delish. Mozzarella and tomato appetizer is also wonderful. I had a vegetable loaf, with potatoes, mushrooms, other veggies, it was a very large portion and delicious. My husband got the burger and said it was very good. They had entertainment the night we were there and we enjoyed that. It wasn't too loud and we could still have a conversation. The beer selection is very good. Our waiter was great! He was fun and knew about the menu. We will definitely be back.

During a recent visit with my office staff, we were promptly seated upon our arrival to a beautiful wooden table by the front window. Our waitress was prompt and gave us some time to look over the drink and appetizer menus. She gave her recommendations and we were pleased with the choices we made. As a staff of 7, we shared the poutine, cheese curds and burrata. It was a nice amount of food and every was very tasty. We placed our dinner order soon after. The menu offers a wide selection for all tastes. We had sampling of meals (pasta, burgers, fish tacos, steak, as well as others). Everyone in our party was pleased. Throughout our meal, our waitress kept our drink filled. Our bill came, but we were not rushed to leave and were told to stay and enjoy our time together. Everyone was pleased with their time; we've even talked planning our next visit.

This is our go to place for Brunch in the Lehigh Valley. It is the best way to start out a Sunday, but you need reservations because other people have figured that out too!

Went with some friends. Not my first time here. The food was amazing. We had the pickle jar, burrata, fried cheese curds, beet salad, Mac and cheese, vegan spaghetti and mussels.

The server, however, seemed aloof and wasn’t intimately familiar with the food. She wanted to charge us $3.00 for two more crostini for the burrata (it only came with 2.) Kinda pathetic in my opinion. Took half an hour in between our beverage delivery until she came back for our order. The place was half full at the time. We dined at 5:00 pm.

The beet salad looked huge, but it was mostly greens with quartered red and yellow beets. There weren’t even 2 whole beets.

Understandably this place was full when we left. Check came quickly when we asked for it.

I will try again, but ask for a different server should this woman appear.

Interesting and appealing brunch menu; the food was delicious. The Bloody Marys were just spicy enough and the refill special was appreciated! Our server, who we will remember as “Dwight,” was friendly and attentive. Our chatty group had a lot to catch up on together and we felt welcome to stay as long as we wanted. The noise level was pretty high, but the infectious energy level made it OK to speak up a little and just lean in to the table. Really enjoyable; we’ll be back.
