    Mommy daughter date. Great experience! Only complaint was there weren’t a whole lot of pork free options, so my mom could only really get the wings. Thankfully they were delicious! I super enjoyed my lamb shank and the drinks were fabulous. The best part was definitely the service. Our server, Aaron, was helpful and attentive. I can’t wait to visit again.

    Top of the line in service and food. Alli was the best with a great supporting staff. Mike Cunningham has a excellent line up and Union 50 is leading the pack. Mussels are off the hook, particularly when paired with the best bread in the state. No disappointment here at all. W. BENNETT

    The service was great! It was our anniversary, so we were treated to champagne and a candle on our dessert, which was amazing! I had the shrimp and grits and my husband had the duck. Both were delicious. It's a bit on the pricey side, but not too terrible. Great place for a night out with friends.

    We were excited by this menu as we love restaurants that offer small plates and lots of shareable options. But we were underwhelmed by our meal. Everything was just ok. Nothing wowed us. We had the pastrami poutine, wings, pan-fried gnocchi, and shrimp & grits. The shrimp & grits were off of the grand menu, but was still a small serving. 4 pieces of shrimp and a very small amount of grits. We could barely tell there were grits under the shrimp! I would have expected this size of a serving had it been on the bistro menu.

    Union 50Responded on July 9, 2022Unfortunately, it seems that we dropped the ball and we would like to apologize. If you could please email us at union50@crgdining, we'd love to see how we can make things better. Sincerely, Union 50 Management Team
