The food and the service was fantastic. Variety of fish and trouts were amazing. Drink and cocktails well prepared. You really get for what you pay. Definitely a place to repeat next time in Pittsburgh.

Great brunch - the shareable potato donut tray (chocolate espresso, dulce de leche, and greek yogurt/coconut) was excellent as a starter. I had the vanilla bean french toast and love it. And my wife loved the "scramble" especially the crispy onion straws on top of the eggs and veggies.

Union Standard immediately became a favorite for my wife and me. There is no question that the food is created by a chef of extraordinary talent. Every time we have dinner there, I end up shaking my head over my plate at how good my meal is. The restaurant is unpretentious from the staff to the comfortable, welcoming ambiance, to the accessible but highly original menu. It is a real treat to go out for a nice meal and end up having a dinner that is more like an experience. Can't recommend the restaurant enough. It's a world class gem right here in Pittsburgh! Thanks for the phenomenal meals! Can't wait to come back! Our next adventure will be brunch. Keep hearing it's amazing!

It’s a nice restaurant, the food was fine, but not WOW. Especially the dessert was lacking flavor. The waiters were very attentive, food took a little longer than expected. Overall we spend a good time there and would come back to try different items on their menu.

First off we made changes to our reservation twice and they couldn’t have been more accommodating. I believe Sarah was who assisted us and she was amazing. Our server Morgan was also fantastic. Personable, efficient and incredibly friendly. All the food and drink were on point with quality and creativity. Would certainly go back and will refer others. Well done!

We had a wonderful dinner. Our server was knowledgeable about cocktails, wine and the food. She helped make excellent decisions with all three. All four of us thoroughly enjoy all of the food and drinks. Highlights included the Radix cocktail, beef tartare appetizer, and the sea bass and salmon entrees. The only negative was the time it took to get wines by the glass. This was a pre-show dinner and the restaurant was not too busy, though the bar seemed to be busy. We had a couple of glasses of wine that came after the course with which it was intended had been served.

My family and I went here for brunch and the adults thought the food was delicious! We both got the scramble (crazy good chimichurri comes with it), a side of bacon, and toast with a spiced carrot marmalade which was fabulous! The 14 year old ordered the omelet, but said it was kind of squishy and he couldn’t find the cheese (we didn’t locate any cheese either, hence the 4 stars instead of 5). He did like the ham on top though! Anyway...we ended up getting the donut platter to share as well, which everyone loved (even the cranky 14 year old)! The three flavors they had that day were double chocolate, caramel pecan, and goat cheese. Overall, this is a solid brunch spot!
