Arriving to the restaurant was pretty smooth finding parking was surprisingly easy, there’s street parking and then a parking garage around the corner. We were seated immediately after giving my name. Our waitress was very attentive. The quality of food was great. The “unfinishable” drinks for brunch were definitely unfinishable. Overall I would recommend this restaurant for anyone looking for a fun Sunday brunch with friends.

The food is always great here! It’s perfect when you are feeling indecisive and can pick a few plates rather than just one! Definitely recommend the gnocchi and the Brussels!

Everything about this place was horrible. We took a client out to lunch to this place. We had to ask to turn the heat on. It took 20 minutes for someone to come to us. They didn’t know what was on their menu, the food took 45 minutes to get to our table. None of the dishes came at the same time. We had a colleague that had to wait for his dish to come after all of us finished eating. None of the food tasted good, everyone was disappointed. We will never come back. Hope this place closes and something else reopens. Horrible!!

We had a great dinner as far as the food was concerned. Our waiter on the other hand was terrible. We ordered a bottle of wine and instead of coming right back and telling us they didn't have a cold bottle of Pinot Grigio available, he was MIA. In fact, our appetizers were delivered and eaten. We had to ask several times for our drinks, and finally he came back and said the bottle wasn't cold. We then ordered 3 individual glasses of different white wines and he gave each of the wrong one. This was such a terrible first time experience at this recommended restaurant. Next time we will go to another restaurant as I was embarrassed that my guests were treated poorly by the wait staff.
Ps I gave a 20% tip as I know the guy has bills to pay, but he really did not deserve it.

This was our first visit. My family loves small plate restaurants as we enjoy trying different foods. There was a nice selection on the menu and everything we ordered was enjoyed. I wouldn’t give culinary awards, but everything was solid and very unique. Some favorites include the meatballs, cauliflower fried rice and octopus. The s’more dessert was crazy good as was the churro. The service was very attentive (not overly) and friendly. I find that service really can make or break a restaurant. The casual atmosphere and location on the water add to a great experience. Makes for a fun night out...would not be good for quiet conversations or romance!!!

Had a Manhattan, a flatbread, roasted beets, a burger, deviled eggs. Everything we ordered was ok but uninspired. Basic pub fare trying too hard, I’d say. Service was attentive. Nice location and I’m sure it’s good for a large group out for drinks at the bar.

Went for brunch on a Sunday with my husband and mother in-law. The weather was beautiful so it was a bit more crowded than normal, since the restaurant is right on the water. Another caveat is that we went during Sunday football, which made the bar a bit more crowded than usual. HOWEVER, I still don't think that's any excuse for the long wait for our food. Our first small plates came out right away, but we waited at least 45 minutes from that time until the main plates came out. Also, the entire time we were there, it was almost impossible to hear each other speak. The acoustics in there are just horrible. $24 is a good deal, but not worth the wait or the noise. If you are going with a few college buddies to watch a game and drink, probably fine, but not for a relaxing brunch or with anyone you actually want to have a conversation with...

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.

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.

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.
