    Wings were way overcooked, but by the time the waitress came back, we had eaten them, The special which was beef over coconut sticky rice was not hot. One of my favorite places, but this time, it was most disappointing.

    Atmosphere was super cool! The lamb shank was outstanding. My husband got the duck and it was decent but a touch overcooked. The rosemary duck fat fries were probably the best fries I have ever had. 10/10 will be going again!

    I came across Union 50 looking for a top spot in Indy. The decor is great, as is the concept. We enjoyed the idea of being able to share multiple plates. Different sizes gave us different options and the menu itself has quite a bit of variety. The lamb shank and carrot cake were our favorite. The lamb was so tender and the cheesy corn that it came over was also excellent - we said we'd even order it again just as a side too. The dates were more savory than I anticipated - still good, but did not have any of the sweetness of a date. The pulled pork poutine had a lot of good flavors. We wished there were more cheese curds and we wondered if we should've tried one of their regular fries to enjoy the fries themselves without the loaded, soggy feature. But the flavors were definitely delicious. The gnocchi was also very good but, again, not quite as expected. The goat cheese was definitely a highlight of that plate. Overall, good food, good vibe, good ambiance, and unique menu with something for everyone.

    Union 50Responded on September 15, 2022Thank you so much for this awesome review. We are glad you had a positive experience and very much appreciate your feedback. Please visit us again soon!

    This was the second time we’ve enjoyed dining at Union 50. Our party of five was not disappointed. We were seated immediately at our reserved time. Our waiter was personable and knowledgeable, helping us decide on drinks, appetizers, and entrees. The appetizers were perfect, and the drinks were both creative and enjoyable. Our entrees were all delicious (shrimp and grits, the duck, and the others ordered from the Devour* menu…fish and New York Strip). *The Devour menu, at $35 per person, was a great deal. The steak was a $5 upgrade, but worth every penny. Appetizer, entree, and dessert for that price was delicious and filling! Our waiter was attentive but didn’t hover. We didn’t feel rushed and ended up enjoying the evening for three hours. We will be back!

    We all chose the Devour menu. The meatballs were great, the salads were soggy. The barramundi was just ok. The chicken and waffles were really good, especially if the waffle had been crisper. The chocolate dessert was rich, huge, and delicious. The service was perfect.
