Reasonably priced, lovely waterfront location and tasty food was offset by horrible service. My date had a couple severe allergies (including a very serious egg allergy), and when he informed the waiter he seemed like he did not care at all. We asked specifically for no sauce on a burger (assuming it was mayo based and contained egg), and asked about the possibility of egg being in the bun for the burger. We kindly asked for the waiter to ensure that was the case, but he didn't write anything down and didn't even seem like he heard what my date said. Not being comfortable with the waiters response and cavalier attitude, I got up to use the restroom and stopped at the bar to ask a gentleman who seemed like a manager about the possibility of egg being in the bun, to which he said there probably was and went to the kitchen to alter my order. There was a slight apology involved with that, but quite honestly, not enough. This is a casual fun place with tasty food and a cute atmosphere, but I wouldn't dine here if you have any worries about allergies or a desire for thorough service.

My wife and I were here on a Friday night for restaurant week. We were very surprised by the value for four course meal plus wine pairing. The dishes were innovative and generally tasty, with our favorites being cauliflower fried rice and burrata. Ambience was similar to that of a food hall and was very energetic. Only disappointing part was the slow service, which may be from the way manager allocated tables from different areas to the same server.

It is extremely loud in this restaurant, especially around 8pm on a Saturday. They need to put some carpet on the walls or something to catch the sound!!! I came with my parents and luckily they sat us in the back but we still had trouble hearing both ourselves and our server. The food was just ok, nothing special. The best dish we had was the brussels and kale Caesar. The gnocchi with muzz was very disappointing and didn’t taste like anything at all. We also had the meatballs, which were decent, red hot wings which were good, tuna, and two others that I don’t remember. Overall, a bit disappointed with the food and the noise in the restaurant.

Great food. Awful service. Waited almost 30 minutes for our drinks and over an hour for food. We stopped in for a quick brunch, and it took us 2 hrs and 15 mins to get through our meal. The waiter was clearly frazzled and very dismissive to our needs. Bummed to have had such a bad experience, especially since the food was good.

Went for brunch with a big group. Service was not great - it took forever to get our food. The drink special with the big rum punches and mimosas was great and worth it and the food was yummy too, just wish the timing of it all worked out better.

we went with another couple for sunday brunch, the place is nice & comfortable & the food was good, we all got the brunch deal.... BUT the noise level is AWFUL we could barely hear each other talk or hear our waiter, speaking of our waiter....he was friendly & soft spoken which didn't help with the noise level mentioned but was obviously new with NO SERVING EXPERIENCE, we had to explain things to him! it was bad, he didn't even think you could get dressing on the side of the very delicious salad! my friend said he thinks it might have been one of the worst servers ever....
the brunch was yummy, one dish came out cold other than that we enjoyed it, they MUST do something about the noise level in there, get an acoustic professional in to fix it

The food was very good. So was the location and view...near the Hudson. This is a noisy, energetic place made even more noisy by a loud, vibrating HVAC system. Staff was friendly and caring but occasionally seemed a little confused ... different waiter came for drink and food orders and it did not appear they communicated with each other. That said, it was an enjoyable evening.

Excellent restaurant, service was spot on, price was what you would expect for a Hoboken restaurant. Only complaint, very loud. If you are trying to have an intimate conversation, may not be the best location. But we were a large group and all of us enjoyed!

Union Hall is an interesting bar/gastro-pub located on the Hoboken water front. You have phenomenal views of the city.

The menu selection is primarily small bites, but it was difficult to pick out which of the dishes were fully sharable vs some that may not be (e.g. Salad). However, the food was great-definitely on the heavy side even though it's small bites but great! And great embience.

Food was very good! We came for brunch. However their $2 mimosas were all orange juice. You can tell by the color. I’d come back for dinner but probably not brunch. The Brussels sprout Cesar salad is fabulous.

The menu was very limited and the food was a disappointment. I had a lobster slider and the lobster was chewy . I questioned whether it was truly all lobster as it had a slight tuna fish taste. I could be wrong, but regardless the lobster was not good and the texture was chewy. They also offer a cobb salad slider which is basically a turkey burger slider with an over abundance of pepper and a little sauce. It was worse then the lobster slider. Icouldn't finish it and it was the size of a slider! I would not go back nor would I recommend.

Samantha our server was exceptional! She set the mood for an outstanding lunch by catering to our needs! She verified what food my husband could eat, he is gluten sensitive! Had the food prepared gluten free and then when dessert time came she said wait , I am going to see if we can make a special one for him. She can back with a delicious very and ice cream gluten free dessert! She was very resourceful and kept on impressing us! Strongly recommend this restaurant and Samantha!

I have never had worse service in my life! The menu was really strange & all over the place. It took forever to get. We had shot girls come to our table while we were eating like it was a club. This place was not worth the wait! It was super tacky & felt like it didn't know if it wanted to be a club or a restaurant. SO HORRIBLE!! NEVER AGAIN

Great new restaurant with a chef owner creating unique new small plates. Excellent bar. But I still don't understand why blasting lousy music is supposed to add to one's eating pleasure. It is the reason I avoid a lot of restaurants. Food and conversation are supposed to be relaxing experiences. They aren't with weird noises, believed by some to be music, overwhelming the eating experience.

This is a new restaurant in Hoboken. We had brunch here on 7/30.

The Good:
Food was pretty good
Service was attentive
Pricing was reasonable

The Bad:
The dining room is industrial with NO CLOTH to absorb sound - LOUD
The kitchen door kept slamming every single time a waiter went into the kitchen or came out
The jelly donuts weren't jelly, it was a sauce (waitress took it off our bill)
So Many Screaming Kids

We do not live in the area so we will likely not return. If we are back in town, we may come here for a drink on the outdoor patio. I hope they fix the loud door and they should really offer "Kids" vs "No Kids" seating sections.
