Our server was amazing, wish I could remember her name. Food and atmosphere was excellent too.
Great food, great drinks and great & friendly service.
Order and share.
Pork ribs were very tender.
Truffled Sake and Black Rice Godzilla are excellent sushi choices.
We went for a birthday before going out to a bar. It was super good! Highly recommend
We let head chef Max create for us. His choices, including some not on the menu selections were superb.
Server Mike was outstanding. I dislike be pushed off in a corner or upstairs of a quiet restaurant when there are plenty of tables in the main dining room and that’s what occurred our server Mike recognize our displeasure and made our evening a genuine pleasure. He should be recognized by leadership for his go above and beyond attitude.
Nothing unique about the sushi. Very ordinary. Chef was not very friendly.
Great sushi! They had fantastic specialty rolls and their classic rolls tasted great too! Don’t forgo the calamari either. Great app!
A great restaurant to celebrate a special occasion.
One of the best places to go if you like sushi, grilled food, and great drinks. The bartenders are the BEST!
We had a wonderful time and the food was absolutely amazing!
Excellent sushi fresh and tasty. Special roll excellent as well. Very good service and reservation time observed!
Such good sushi and barbeque food! Great atmosphere too for getting together with friends or a date
Food is fabulous
We have dined at Union Sushi for years and the food has always been great, however this visit the food was sub par. Sushi was chewy, none of the usual items on the menu and overall just not good. I know we are going through labor and product constraints but they really need to get the food back to where it use to be or create better tasting food. The music was horrible too! They use to play old hip hop which gave the restaurant good energy. It seems old and stuffy now!
Sorry, but this will probably be our last visit... :-(
Great food and service but crowded in at bar.
Our favorite neighborhood restaurant
Waited 50 minutes to be seated. Never had this issue at Union before.
Union was good! They were out of a lot of stuff we wanted to order which wasn't the greatest. Food was tasty.
One of the most delicious and freshest rolls. Madai chili roll was my favorite. Service was great and friendly.
Our reservation was for outdoor seating and upon arriving asked if we could sit inside as the weather had changed since we made the reservation. The gentleman at the podium graciously seated us at a small table for two which was perfect! The suggestions made by the staff were excellent, we could not have had a better experience.
Me and my sister went here for dinner. Had the Shittake sushi roll, and some truffled salmon roll and jt js now her favorite sushi place!
Our server was the sweetest and the entire staff was very cautious of my sisters gluten, nut, and shellfish allergies.
Great experience and we will definitely be back.
Loved it!! Food was delicious!!
The sushi is good but the restaurant has increased it's pricing substantially. Union sushi is where I go for a casual night out. However, the prices are closer to a special occasion dinner. Trust me, I'm not cheap when it comes to dining out but I was a bit surprised by the new menu.
Some of the best and most interesting sushi in town. Great staff, nice space, good bar. Pricey but that is actually part of the appeal. This is our go to sushi restaurant for the past few years.
great food ambience and service! higjly recommend !
Food was really good but a little pricier for the quantity.
Delicious Sushi. Two of the Rolls I recommend are black rice Dargon Roll and spicy tuna. Also, the Sake is excellent, and we would go back.
Always so amazing!!!! We love Mikey!
Amazing unique dishes, the freshest fish! The best service!
The food was delicious and the service went above and beyond. The price of the food is on the higher end but we’ll worth it.
No happy hour - overpriced for the amount of food
Our waiter was awesome. And the fact that you accommodated our the extra people that showed up from our original 10 was very much appreciated.
Waiter was awesome, very attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. Gave good recommendations.
Great Sushi and cocktails. Service was excellent Amy is a sweetheart
Interesting place with well made sushi and rolls. The indoor space looked interesting but we had opted for an outdoor table to take advantage of the end of summer weather. The Union tempura plate was done with care- light and crunchy: the shrimp were smallish but quite tender and flavorful, the sweet potato and zucchini slices were large but good, the use of enoki for tempura was surprising but quite good. The "Pacific Coast" roll was quite good - the jalapeño added a nice bit of heat in the back while the "Spider" roll was okay. We only sampled 3 nigiri: the maguro was excellent - almost toro-like in terms of tenderness but without the fattiness which I found most satisfying; the unagi was good- not a big piece but a well trimmed piece to keep the flesh and fat in balance; the escolar was a bit grainy and not the best.
seated outdoors next to the "EL" at rush hour is LOUD. it was a lovely pleasant evening but one had to time the conversation to take advantage of the Brown Line trains noisily going by every 3-4 min.
Excellent quality of food. They had uni and toro! Excellent service. Another memorable experience.
Sort of a sushi bar, but not in the traditional sense. Some odd but tasty rolls using black rice. Small nigiri pieces. The barbecue is a traditional Japanese gizmo. We were unimpressed. Raw lamb chops, very good scallops, and some mystery meat that was mostly fat. If you’re looking for a different Japanese experience, give this place a try. If you’re looking for sushi, keep looking.
Excellent service. Yummy food.
The food was DELICIOUS,we tried a little bit of everything.The waitress was always right on time and not too overwhelming.Great time!!
We had a great experience. The food, drinks and ambience were great! We had a wonderful server as well.
