My friend and I went to Union 50 for dinner, and I had never been. I had heard mixed reviews but expected a lot out of a Cunningham restaurant at this price level. I have food allergies (dairy/eggs) and found it very difficult to find something on the menu - much more difficult than other restaurants, actually. My salad was delicious; my gnocchi was average for the cost. Service was great. I do not think I would return, as I would rather try some other restaurants instead.

Excellent food--creative and tasty. Attentive service. I also got a free dessert, as it was my birthday! That is their policy. Definitely will be back.

Union 50 is one of my favorite restaurants in Indy! My go-to for date night. It's incredibly well-run, the service is always great, and the ambiance is perfect! Not to mention, they make the best duck dish I've ever had.

The waiter had took advantage of me being buzzed and took the $40 in cash as a tip and charged my card $79 for 2 bottles of Chardonnay. He didn't even give me a receipt. I had told him to use the cash first then the card. But I spoke with the manager yesterday and a refund was promised. Still waiting on the refund. Overall, the atmosphere was great! I had a really great time!

We had 9:30 PM reservation for table in bar. When we arrived, we were told our table had received check, so should be available shortly. We told hostess we would wait at bar and have a cocktail. After hearing nothing after 20 minutes, checked back at hostess stand. Were told table had paid, but hadn't left. Heard nothing again for 20 minutes, so checked back at hostess stand. Same story. Luckily, we were able to grab 2 seats at bar. Another 20 minutes, same story. It's now 10:30, one hour after reservation and no "manager" has come to talk w/us. Finally at 11 PM, "Jessica" stopped by to apologize and offer to buy us a round. She also gave us two coupons for "free appetizer w/purchase of entrée." This was New Year's Eve, so I get the table situation. However, Union 50's response was totally lame and completely unacceptable. Never again!

Great food, great wine, even better service. I’ve been here a half dozen times and knew we’d have a great experience for NYE dinner. Union 50 did not disappoint.

This place is super cool and we always enjoy our visits. Sat in the bar area and we had a super small table top built for two. (Honestly not great) So there was a bit of plate negotiation going on every-time a dish was brought out. Food was delicious as usual as were the GIN drinks. The service was superior, our waitress was outstanding. My lovely bride had spent a few years in her youth hustling tables , she was even impressed. You have got yourself a good one there.

One of my favorite places to eat, but after our server decided we weren’t going to order two entrees, he sorta disappeared. We still ordered a Grand Board, 2 drinks, fries and dessert so it’s not like we had ordered frites and water.

Our first visit to Union 50 was a fine experience! Great food, well prepared and presented, and excellent service. Great interior appointments and atmosphere. Prices are high end - shared appetizer and salad, a drink each, seafood main course, and a shared dessert, $115+. But, well worth the dining visit for fine dining.

Unbelievably awesome. They actually accommodated us at 11:30 pm so my husband and i could celebrate my birthday Dec. 30 and his birthday Dec. 31 at midnight. So generous of the chef and staff to do that for us. Everything was perfect, great food, incredible service and so accommodating this special time. Thank you so much. We are hoping to do this every year. Thank you to all for an very special night!

Dinner with friends we rarely get to see. Service was patient but attentive as we talked a lot. We will definitely both be back and recommend U50 as a great place to meet up and have good food and drinks.

Do not hesitate to make your reservation to visit this restaurant. My wife and I had a reservation before seeing Hamilton right down the street. This was easily the best meal I've ever had. The charcuterie board was a fantastic appetizer. My wife had the pork chop and it was perfectly seasoned and cooked. I had the duck and was blown away. It was perfectly cooked as well. My mouth is watering thinking about it now.

We were taken care of by Hannah and she was at our table checking on us and bringing us whatever we needed almost like she had no one else to wait on...which was not the case. Great food. Love the atmosphere. The parking attendant does seem to disappear at times, but maybe he has something else to do.
Loved it!

We dined on Christmas Eve I and my daughter had the Salmon. And it was excellent. My husband had the meatloaf and he said it was so much more then meatloaf it was exceptional. The appetizers were great as well. Never disappointed at Union 50. One small note, the bar didn’t have Kahaua which should be a staple.

Had a reservation for a quick early dinner before seeing Hamilton. Hostess had great understanding that we needed to be in and out in 60 minutes. Server was not quite as quick as we wished. It was busy, and that may have been the reason. We would definitely return, though not on a time-crunch.
