    This place has a fun energetic atmosphere - 4th time going here. Got the Chicken dish and Caesar salad- it was very good! Unfortunately had to wait 25-30 minutes for our bottle of wine to arrive. A restaurant at this level needs to get the drinks out right away- then if there is a delay at least you have something to sip on…

    Made reservations and we had to wait outside for 30min. To crowded inside, I will recommend a waiting area. Also honor your reservation more then walk in.

    Service was excellent, food was underwhelming. The best dish was the house salad. I found the milk bread to be just “ok”, my filet was cooked perfect and very tender but lacked flavor and the asparagus was greasy and overcooked. They have a great selection of wine by the glass and bottle. Overall, it was an okay meal but didn’t live up to the hype.

    Outstanding sushi. I love their Crunchy Tuna. I had the black cod which was very nicely prepared. The spirits list is extensive with hard to find selections. The wine list is very good, although a little on the pricey side. Most other high-end restaurants in the area price their wine similarly, so they are not in left field. Overall a great dining experience.

    The fish had an unusual smell like it may have been spoiled.the burger was outstanding but not worth the $28. The bread is crazy amazing. We will come back but Maybe for dinner. It is a price point a little above JAlexanders (Redlands) but a quality that is more like a Chilies. Juan is an amazing staff member and really did everything right. The ambience and the design of the resturant is really very big city cool. We are outside and the chairs are comfortable and the attention to detail is amazing.

    The service was very good. We sat outside on the patio and the music was pretty loud, making it hard to hear the people you’re at dinner with. We asked our server if they could turn it down and they did. The food was good, no complaints.

    First time dining at Union and I will certainly be back when I’m back in Tampa. It was a great experience. Excellent drinks and excellent food. The bar area is lively and the restaurant has a cool vibe to it. I’m not sure it’s a place to bring young kids but it is an awesome place to have a date night. I highly recommend.

    Ever since Union opened, my wife and I have frequented the restaurant either for lunch (2-3 times a week) together or dinner with our three boys (a few times a month). We have brought friends and family as well as hosted a dinner party for over a dozen people upstairs. I have long boasted that the steak frites (specifically the filet) was the best in Tampa even ahead of favorites like Berns. That was until a few months ago. We have since visited the restaurant less and less as we have been consistently disappointed. I have left many positive reviews raving about the food and staff but things have unfortunately changed. I am not one to leave overly negative reviews but this has been a most disappointing turn for what was once one of our favorites restaurants. Our dining experience today was slow, inconsistent and not of the typical quality we had become use to when they first opened. We have relayed our concerns to staff and management over the last several months but haven’t seen improvement. We will be taking a break from Union for a while and enjoying some of the other outstanding dining options Tampa has to offer while Union regroups. While I understand running a successful restaurant is a challenging endeavor with no one silver bullet being a cure all, I would recommend maybe bringing back previous management temporarily to course correct the restaurants current downward trajectory. As a positive commentary, the space is well designed and beautiful executed with great ambiance.

    Ordered Rib Eye / Fried Rice / Ribs / Snapper Everything was room temp except the Snapper. It seems they waited for the Snapper to run the food. Run the food while it is hot. Heat Lamps don't hold food to temp. Customers prefer their food HOT/Fresh & Delicious. (Especially at that price)

    Overall, it’s overpriced and mediocre. The best part of the meal came first, the bread. Next, we had the tuna sushi roll which was solid. However, it quickly went downhill from there. Stay away from the fish entrees. We originally both ordered the snapper and they came out hard as a rock and you would have to use a knife to cut it. Also, it was very fishy and clearly not fresh. We sent it back and waited 40 minutes for the cod which was beyond salty and also clearly not fresh with no apologies for the wait. I then ordered chocolate chip cookies which are usually hard to mess up. However, I had to wait 20 minutes for them which makes sense because they were burnt. The waiter was decent but it was clear we were unhappy and they didn’t seem to care. We were there for over 2.5 hours which is way too long. Overall, if you want to come here maybe just stick to the bar upstairs and some appetizers. There are much better places to go in Tampa for the price or even cheaper.

    We were so excited to dine here. Overall, our experience was positive but didn’t live up to our expectations. The “grilled citrus” salad had no grilled citrus though was tasty. Snapper was good. Ribs had very little edible meat but were tasty. I wanted a vegetable plate but they wouldn’t do that so opted for the eggplant enchiladas. They were delicious, but would have been even better had it been served hot. We liked the atmosphere and decor. Our service was good. Valet parking is $6 (plus tip) which we found annoying. Overall, good but not great.
