As usual. This place did not disappoint. We had not visited in a while; but this is one of our favorite spots in PGH. We had hoped that it had not changed from what we expected. We were not disappointed. A few new changes to the menu; however, all of our favorites were there. The atmosphere is perfect and we sat and enjoyed dinner with friends for several hours.

The food was edible. Mussels were so small, it was barely worth the effort. Potato bread was excellent as were the grilled shisito peppers. Roasted chicken, lamb sirloin, and trout were all just fine. Nothing exciting. Everything has a heavy smoke scent or flavor; just too much. Will not be going back. Our service was quite good, but everything was extremely overpriced for what was received.

Food & Service very good but LOUD hard rock music was a terrible choice for Sunday brunch. We sat at a booth but very dark and blocked views which would be okay for evening but not during the day.

The menu was different(which I like). I enjoyed my food and the restaurant was pretty cool. I think the waiter could have enjoyed being there a little more, but I don't need him to have fun. LOL

Both the bar & dining experience were exceptional as we enjoyed cocktails & the soccer games at the bar & then a superb meal in the dining room. The Baked Blue Crab appetizer was truly standout while my wife's scallops & my trout both exceeded our expectations. Pittsburgh offers many fine dining venues & Union Standard was FAR above "standard!"

My wife and I were in Pittsburgh for an overnight visit. Went on Sunday evening. The service was attentive and friendly. We shared a few plates from the sharing menu. Great way to experience a variety. We highly recommend Union Standard.

Very good food; terrific service. Lots of fish options, which were great but could be limiting for people who are not prepared for this. They were out of one of the appetizers, and we were there early, so that was disappointing. But overall, a great new place we enjoyed.

We were a party of 5 for Father’s Day . The space was beautiful although so noisy that we were unable to hear each other. Our server was excellent. I ordered the potato and pea shoot soup and salmon salad which were excellent. Other orders included the omelet and the scramble as well as the donut platter, all of which were enjoyed. However, my husband and another guest ordered the chicken hash which had no chicken at all in it and appeared to be only seasoned potatoes with a poached egg. They chose to not complain but were both very disappointed in their meals. The coffee was also not up to par and tasted stale. I should also mention that the service from the kitchen was very slow although this was not a problem for us. Overall, a good restaurant but you need to tweak a few things.

Our brunch at Union Standard was one of the best we've ever had. Not only was the food absolutely fantastic, the service was top-notch as well. The donut platter was a surprising and unique treat - we had never had potato donuts before, and Union Standard's home-made toppings were transformative.
We ordered three different entrees and all of them were exceptional. The mushrooms on the scramble are delicious, and the strip steak was excellently prepared.
We will be returning for sure!

This was my second meal here, and I had a chance to relax and enjoy after a rushed first experience. Service was fantastic on this visit. I had an asparagus cream soup to begin, and that was very tasty, and followed that with an entree of scallops that I really enjoyed. My friend had and liked his trout entree. Nice selection of wines by the glass. Will come back again!

Food and service very good, only complaint was that there was too much time between course/drinks/appetizers/dinner/dessert(almost three hours) But quality of food and service was good, we believe there was a hold up in the kitchen as it was not that busy? All aspects of food and drinks were superb.

We made a reservation for 12:00 p.m. but were not seated until 12:30. I figured the restaurant must be really busy - but instead as we were walked to our table we passed by a restaurant which was only 50% - at best- full. Management must have recognized our frustration and they very kindly provided our table with platters of donuts. But then, appetizers were brought out before a single drink was brought to the table, I understand waiting for beverages from the bar, but waiting 20 minutes for a cup of coffee seemed ridiculous. I was really excited to try Union Standard, but I will not go back based on this experience. The food was good - the service really ruined the experience.

I'd been hearing about the brunch at Union Standard for so long, I didn't think anything could live up to hype. I was wrong. Brunch was everything I'd heard and more. The egg scramble, the vanilla bourbon French toast, fresh squeezed orange juice, potato bread donuts. It was out of this world good!
