We where there for valentines dinner! Pretty happy about the place and everything except that the food toked a long time! They say it was bcz of what we order.
which it was 4 different rolls, and the calamari need to be Fried,it was a lil upsetting because we were starving and when the food arrive the calamari roll was cold! But we just ate it anyways and it was pretty good even thoughts it was cold! But the server was great! We had a great experience overall. Just if you order the roll be prepared to wait a list 30m!

Best dirty martini I’ve had in a long time! I asked for blue cheese stuffed olives, which the waiter said they didn’t have. He came back with a couple that the bartender had made and the drink couldn’t have been better. The music was awesome, and the food was yummy. Only complaint is that upstairs where they sat us was a bit cramped. Otherwise, I really enjoyed it. Cute place!

We celebrated a birthday at Union recently, it never disappoints. Everything was delicious and we had the best service, we will be back. It’s always hard celebrating a birthday on Valentine’s Day when restaurants are so busy - so thank you for helping to make her day special.

We went to Union for pre-theater dining, it was a snowy night, we were a bit late and short on time. We informed our server and he was so accommodating: we were out on time and the food and service was excellent.

Everything was delicious. The best part was the happy hour items. Then to top it off the pumpkin mocci cake was literally the icing on the whole dinner. Thank you. Till we meet again ;)
