Great food, cocktails and wine. And service. Cool building. Definitely recommend. Filet was outstanding, pork chop tasty, but over cooked. Still a great dining experience.

Food and service were great! But FYI--people (not staff) were not wearing masks throughout the restaurant. It made us feel uncomfortable and after this experience we won't be going out for awhile as some do not take masking and social distancing seriously.

I would have give this place a MUCH higher review but the service was not good. I made a reservation well in advance, but still waited 15-20 minutes to be seated when I arrived. This would be fine with me except I could see our table we reserved in the bar was ready for us to be sat. We also were not greeted at the door or given an explanation to why weren’t being sat. I saw the manager and hostess pass us multiple times to pick something up from the host stand but would quickly turn around to do something else. Finally after standing in the doorway staring at our open table with a reservation sign on it we were sat and had a wonderful dinner and server.

We always love the ambiance of Union 50. I would just like to see them change their menu or offer more specials more often. The menu has been the same for quite a long time and it doesn’t draw my interest to go back. If it’s your first or second time, I would highly recommend it.

Loved our experience. We hadn't been to Union 50 in probably two years and it was as good as we remembered. I asked for a socially distant table for my party of two and they led us to a table that was spaced away from others and also had small decorated partitions between us and the other tables to our front and back. The side was open for service. I want to say our servers name was Brooklyn, she did a good job describing the specials that weren't on the menu and was helpful throughout the night.

Outstanding atmosphere, food and service! One of the few places that we feel comfortable eating during this pandemic. They space the tables and diners well and everyone seems to be wanting to make sure the dining experience is safe and as “normal” as it can be. Great job, we’ll definitely be back!

Always great food and service at Union50. Due to Covid, I'm sure, the back room has tables divided off reminiscent of office cubicles. I'm glad they're making it safe, but the large room is what makes Union50 such a neat place to go.

We were in for Veterans Day Dinner which was so nicely provided by Union 50. There were three Veterans in our group of five. We had a wonderful time and also spend a lot of money so it was good for us and Cunningham Restaurants. We had excellent service from Cameron and I called the corporate number the next day and left Mr. Cunningham a thank you voice mail. A lot of places do something for Veterans - but very impressive and so nice of the Cunningham Group to do it as all of your places are so nice. Anyway, very much appreciated so thank you very much.

This is one of our favorite "Date Night" locations with amazing food and great service. The lamb rib special was exactly that, special; it was tender, almost fell off the bone and made me really want to pick-up the bones and get every last morsel, but my wife just gave me that look when I suggested it!!

Typically, I am not an 'outside eater;' however, I did on this occasion. What a great experience. The weather was perfect and the neighborhood was so tranquil. The food was great as usual. But, a much needed shout-out to our server for the evening, Sophia. Sophia was knowledgeable, playful, helpful, attentive, friendly, detailed . . . all the things you would want in a server. Thanks Sophia!

The service overall could use some improvement. I made a reservation requesting outdoor seating. Usually if you make a request the restaurant reaches out to you. I get to the restaurant only to be told “we don’t accept reservations for outdoor dining”, and that the wait would be 30-60 minutes. As we go to leave we see 2 tables being bussed outside? A hostess on a Saturday night should know when tables are being turned. So we then turn around request a table and are sat in 5 minutes! We almost LEFT!! The waitress wasn’t great either. I asked for recommendations and she only recommended the salmon and scallops... although the menu is quite extensive. I ordered the beef tenderloin. It was pretty good. Potatoes and veggies were over salted. But it was a decent meal. My friends said their meals were good. I’m not sure that I would be a repeat customer if I lived in Indy, but it was decent overall. I’m a stickler for service and when it’s lacking the experience is ruined for me.

The $34 halibut special was a bit too complicated and sweet for such a mild ocean fish. A nice pairing with scallops perhaps.
