    Great atmosphere for a business dinner or for a date night out. I liked the small tweaks to an already delicious dinner menu. High quality service makes the experience all the better.

    We ate upstairs, and there was a live saxophone player. He was good - but it was so incredibly loud coming through the speakers in the ceiling, that you could not hear the person talking at your table. Twice our server told us she would ask the manager to turn it down. That never happened. Additionally, it took 40 minutes for our appetizers to come out, and we ordered a second bottle of wine that arrived when we finished our entrée. Also, my daughter ordered a $57 steak, which she said was delicious, but when she asked for steak sauce, the server did not mention there was a three dollar charge for steak sauce. I would think for the price of the steak, steak sauce should be complementary.

    As seniors we asked for a quiet spot. Upstairs was good but next to an exit door with foot traffic was not choice. Excellent food from fish to ribs. Waitress was very accommodating. Music was nice and not too loud. Not our first time and we will return.

    Thankfully we sat outside where us was much quieter on Friday night. David was our waiter and fantastic! We started with drinks and Gouda fries. Just ok. Then we ordered sushi salads the pasta and sea bass satay. All good except the satay was tough. Apple fritters were the bomb!

    Unfortunately for the music was so loud that my friends and I were unable to engage in quality conversations. The portions were small but tasty but due to the experience of not being able to talk without yelling and still having difficulty hearing, it will be unlikely that we would return.

    The menu has not too much variety. We asked for a bottle of wine, they were out of it. One appetizer also was out. Description of chicken plate, waiter described as dark meat. It turns out to be also breast (I do not care for breast). The good thing is when the waiter was approached about this plate, he offered to change for another selection and it was done very quick. Plates are a little overpriced considering the dish caractheristics.

    The restaurant is very beautiful and lively. There are a lot of options in the menu, but for the price of the dishes, they were not executed well. Most of the meats including the Snapper, Ribs and Roasted Chicken were overcooked and dry. The service was extremely slow, as we were in the restaurant for over 2 hours and half. The server was nice, but left us waiting for 30 minutes at a time, even though he had not taken our orders. An okay experience overall, but the quality has dropped exponentially since the opening.

    Everything my husband wanted to order they said they didn’t have that evening. Sat at a high top table and nowhere to hang purse from because there were no backs on the chairs and no hooks under table or near table. Food was just ok. My son and his cousin did enjoy the burger. Bread was very good.

    I want to thank the Union Family for a wonderful night for our special birthday dinner. Great seating, the service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. If you have not tried their union roll, it's a must appetizer, order two so everyone can share! My husband and I have been enjoying our recent date nights out at the Union and this was our first time with our family. I am happy to say, that this was our first of many family events at the Union, thank you for making it a special night, Shoot out to Amy!! Call and ask for Amy for your next night out at the Union, her service is Outstanding!!

    Not my first time at union, but my first time this late (7;45 reservation) it was loud as HELL. Couldn’t hear myself think. Party going upstairs and sax player downstairs trying to compete, so loud that 3 police officers showed up for noise complaint. It was super busy and service was slow but he went out of his way to make it up and we were satisfied, the food was delicious. So sad they got rid of the rice and Korean ribs though! It was my friends first time coming and she was so impressed with the food.

    I love the food at Union so much as I’ve been back multiple times. Also Dan is possibly the best server in Tampa. I’ve been lucky enough to be seated in his section a few times. Food was awesome and I like the new menu. Only problem is the music was excruciatingly loud. I’ve had that issue at Union before, but last night it was so loud I couldn’t hear my date seated across from me. We were yelling like we were in a club and it was still hard to hear each other. I never do this but I asked if they could turn it down and they actually did which was pretty cool. But unfortunately, even after they turned it down it was still distracting because it was still loud. While I go to clubs pretty much every week, Union is one of my favorite restaurants with amazing food and offers a great upscale dining experience, I just really wish the music wasn’t blasting to an annoying level.

    Dined for an early lunch for business meeting. Moved reservation inside due to wind , but had a bit of an issue as they wanted to give us a high top without a back. That was quickly resolved. One entree came out wrong and immediately corrected, but other entrees were 15 minutes behind. Other than this minor blip, food and ambiance were good! Milk bread was delicious!! Also, entrance is in the back, which is VERY confusing. Signage would be very helpful. Entire meal, we watched people circle building , confused.

    The place is spectacular, I can't say the same about the service and the food. First, the terrible service, they delayed bringing things and asked if the order had arrived and they didn't bring anything, second, the burnt meat. I don't recommend it at all

    Horrible food!! We discovered when we arrived that they changed the menu 3 days ago, and I can say that it is simply a disaster. the quality fell, completely tasteless, the black cod was a disappointment, the vegetables were overcooked, tasteless and full of fat. the salad looked old. This is the fourth time we have visited this restaurant and previous experiences have been great. I believe that if they are going to change for the worse, they prefer to remain the same. It's sad to see how much the quality has dropped!!!!

    The food and drinks were absolutely delicious! The ribs were falling off the bone with each and every bite and the drinks were so flavorful. Our service was subpar as we had to keep asking the food runners for water and basic necessities. The server must’ve been new as she was not too familiar with the menu but overall great experience.
