This place never fails to deliver, from the delicious food, to the wonderful service. Also, it doesn't hurt when the owners come by to say "Hello" and make general conversation. It is truly a family type atmosphere and the owners/staff do everything they can to make you feel at home as well. You will not regret your experience!

It was a good experience. I was surprised they sat tables right next to each other while we are still in the pandemic, but my table was fully vaccinated so it wasn’t too much of a concern.

Food and the ambiance was excellent as always, but the service that night left a lot to be desired. Despite having a reservation, it took quite a while to be seated after arriving (with a walk-in group who arrived after us being seated before us). Drink service was very slow. We probably would have ordered another round of drinks if service had been more timely. This was definitely not consistent with our previous visits, so hopefully it was just an off night. Definitely won't let this keep us from going back and trying again.

We went for Easter Brunch. Food was delicious. Only negative was the limited coffee options. They only had whole milk which is odd considering everyone has non dairy alternatives these days but other than that food was delicious.

The food was outstanding and came out pretty quickly. The service was friendly and quick. The only things that made this experience less than 5 stars was 1. I did not like sitting at a picnic table. We had reserved a table outside, but picnic tables just are not comfortable. And 2. During our meal, the propane heater went out and when we asked our server about it, it wasn't fixed. It got quite chilly as we were eating outside, but luckily we had our coats. We had a great dinner overall.

I found the outdoor seating to be really enjoyable even though it's right next to the parking lot, it felt more vibrant with the pergola, space heaters and music playing than many other restaurants that have had to set up outdoor dining during these times. The service was extremely friendly and everything we ordered was prepared really well. I plan on going back much more as the weather gets warmer.

Union and Finch are definitely the MVP’s of the pandemic. From being the best takeout around, to their new outdoor space, which I just had brunch at on Sunday — when it was raining may I add, they have truly just been exceptional. They have a gas heater lamp for every table, the patio is covered and even in the rain, it was a perfect outdoor oasis with the best food. The service was awesome, and every time I order food, whether to go, or dine in, I am never disappointed. 5 stars all around.

I can’t say enough about how amazing the food was , this is one of the restaurants where you can’t go wrong . The fried cauliflower and pickle jar apps were amazing, better than some Mediterranean restaurants I’ve been in and don’t even get me started about that lemon aioli . Drinks , entrees and dessert were fantastic.. it’s a gem in the city of allentown. If you haven’t been here you’re missing out !!!! I will be back to check out the brunch they have
