We had an amazing dinner! My husband has several food allergies and our server was awesome at recommending menu items that fit. The service was superb, the meal itself was just one of the best we have had in a long time! The drink menu was fun and equally delicious! This is one of our favorite spots! Thank you so much for a great evening out.

The food was excellent and the server was very pleasant. There was some delay on receiving a round of drinks - maybe 20 minutes to get a few beers delivered to the table.

I gave 1 star because we made a reservation, requested bar-tall table seating, arrived and there were several tall tables open in the bar. The hostess asked if we really wanted bar/tall table seating and we said yes (since I obviously took the time to select that on my reservation). She sat us, and the only person who came over to our table was the person to fill up our water glasses. No one ever came back, after about 25 mins of sitting there, I went up to the bar and ordered everything from there. If there had been a shortage of servers in that area, that should have been explained to us. Several servers walked right by us and waited on the tables next to us, but we were never acknowledged. I’ve been to Union 50 several times and never received such terrible service, or lack there of. We brought people who had never been before, and honestly what happened was very embarrassing. The only saving grace of the entire experience there, was the band performing was very good.

This place has some of the best food Indy has to offer. If I could order one of everything I would...but I’ll keep coming back to try all the delicious food. The serve we had was amazing as well!
Top place in my book 👍🏽

The food, the restaurant, the atmosphere, all were fantastic! The Host who sat us was personable and connected with us on the way to the table. I was a little surprised by the service, which was very good, but not very special. The difference between service excellence and merely good service is the connection between the server and their guest. We wanted for nothing, but the service just wasn't as memorable as in times past. I only mention it because in most Cunningham restaurants we nearly always remember the server as personable and unique. That being the only critique, we can't wait to come back to Union 50!

Everything was amazing!

Everything was tried was delicious; steamed mussels, charcuterie board, scallops, salmon, bone marrow, and carrot cake!

Our server was very attentive and patient with us as we took our time to enjoy company and food!

Our waiter was great and the food was amazing. We started with a charcuterie board, then had fries. Our waiter was engaging but gave us space, and our main course was amazing. I had the shrimp and grits and my wife had the scallops. My favorite restaurant in Indianapolis!

Great food, attentive, friendly, knowledgeable service. Prices are a bit high but the restaurant delivers quality. I think the service should be a little more polished/fine dining for the price range and ambiance. It seemed sort of casual compared with everything else. We will definitely go back. Delicious Poutine and beef tar tar. The charcuterie selection is also fabulous.

Really great environment. We sat outside and loved the quaint patio. The food was excellent, most important, and the whole staff was friendly. We had drinks, appetizers, dinner, and dessert. Although the dessert was a little sweet for me, no complaints at all. I highly recommend. Great find in Indy.

Chef Adan was once again on spot. I had the special consisting of a lamb tbone and two scallops. Everything was perfecctly cooked and the plating was exceptional. Hats off to Corey who cooked the scallops to perfection. My wife had the tenderloin. It was perfectly cooked and had a Bleu cheese type sauce on the top which shee declared yummy. Cameron was our waiter. This was the first occasion that Cameron was our server. But, like all of the wait staff at Union 50 he was knowledgeable of the selcetions, courteous, and knew when to check in. We'll be back soon

We had 5:45pm reservations so it was not overly crowded. We had great service and the food was both beautiful and delicious. We felt very relaxed and enjoyed the simple beauty of the restaurant. Ended the meal at the bar because we had to see if the bar stools were as comfortable as they looked. Will definitely be back!

We live nearby and enjoy the vibe of this place. After work drink or a nice dinner before Cabaret. The food is well prepared and drink menu has some depth.

What a great find! The swordfish special was amazing and, at under $30, a good value as well. The chef was willing to accomodate my special request (no sausage). The chicken was yummy and its recipient wanted to go back the next night and do it all over again. Yes, the place is noisy - or, one might say - lively. We loved it!

Very stylish decor and great atmosphere thanks to the subdued band playing 90s covers. The food was unremarkable (tiny mussels and uninspired kim-chi meatloaf; also the charcuterie board had embarrassingly small portions).

Music was so loud we couldn't hear the server's speal... which was way too fast and overwhelming. Food was slightly underwhelming, my filet was covered in the most pungent bleu cheese, and my two aparagus stalks and one carrot thay came with my entree were basically raw. The dates we shared for our appetizer were delicious, but the "loaded fries", which have a fancy name on the menu reminded me of day old stadium fries. Location was close to a music venue we were visiting so it was convenient. Can't say we'll be back though.
