    Courtney, our server, was excellent and made good recommendations to us on the food menu. Delicious food overall. I had the lamb shank which gave my tastebuds a treat for sure! My friend had the pork chop with peach bbq sauce- I tried hers and it was really good too. Best old fashion I’ve also had outside of Wisconsin.

    We always love dining at Union 50, it’s one of our go to places. Sadly management hindered the Dining Out For Life fundraiser by hiding the donation envelopes. Fearing it would be objectionable to clientele apparently. They signed up to donate 25% of proceeds but this fundraiser is equally about the patrons having the opportunity to donate as well. We knew to ask for the envelopes but most would not. Very disappointed in their discussion. We will not dine here next year for the event unless they address this huge mistake.

    We are fans of the Cunningham restaurants and have always loved Union 50 but last night was disappointing - a medium filet came out rare, the mussels were extremely spicy so much so that the mussels were over powered by the sausage. Disappointing for the price we’re willing to pay.

    We have been to Union 50 on numerous occasions because it has good food, is close and is a CRG restaurant. This time, we ordered differently from other times. We ordered the fried gnocchi and the lamb shank. The latter was ordered on our server's recommendation. Both were outstanding.

    We're from out of town but every month of May we do our best to work in a stop at Union 50. Just off of Mass Ave (is Indy trying to make Mass Ave like Broadway in Nashville?), it's in a quite neighborhood and you'll pass by if not paying attention, so be alert! The cuisine is crazy creative and so well prepared. The accoutrements that come with each dish are unique and really enhance the main component (try the dates to see what I mean). Two dishes you don't want to pass on are the meatloaf and the steak tartare. Service is friendly and everyone works as a team so very very attentive.

    Aaron was very nice, mocktails were excellent! The food was very good although it came out less hot than I thought it would, but it was still very good. The paprika whip on the trees leches dessert was pretty terrible to us but that's subjective, the rest of the dessert was okay. I would still go back again for sure!
