Union 50 never disappoints! I ordered the half chicken and my husband ordered the Tomahawk pork chop. Both dishes were excellent and cooked to perfection. The portions are always perfectly sized so you leave full, but not stuffed. I received a free carrot cake since it was my birthday!

Great place! Price for value is questionable, but it’s still a favorite.

Union 50 was a great place to eat. Very rarely do my husband and I go out to eat where he says the food was fantastic. We came here on the recommendation of a friend and we were not disappointed. This is not Olive Garden or Red Lobster. It is a place that serves food prepared with excellence and attention to detail.

Food OK, but not exciting for the price. Steaks were underwhelming as was the tiny beet salad. Fries and sauces, and the roasted mushrooms were the highlights of our meal.

We walked from the Circle Center area to the restaurant. The restaurant was beautiful, the menu interesting, and the food was delicious. We enjoyed the neighborhoods we walked through, were charming, and had cute little shops. Very fun experience!

Stumbled on this place and was pleasantly surprised! Great vibe, awesome meal and kind staff. From the Valet parking smile, to a welcomed greeting, and then a knowledgeable waiter, we had a great time at Union 50. We will become frequent visitors!

After all the great reviews I thought I’d try this place. To me it was just Meh 😏. Nothing to brag about and not sure worth going back. Food and service was ok. But I have been to much Better places.

Union 50 was recommended to me by couple locals and travelers. From hostess, to bar, servers, food, ambiance the whole experience was delightful. Food was phenomenal. Toast + Jam appetizer was amazing. Tough decision but the Duck, Duck won and it did not disappoint! Friend had the Lamb Shank and was equally as pleased. Shout out to Chandler and Ashley (and Bar Daddy who was busy concocting!) at the bar! Will definitely be back. The Brits 🇬🇧

My first Union 50 experience - awesome! Great food and service. A festive atmosphere. Hipster! I had the lamb shank and it was hands down the best I’ve ever had. I’m a big fan of the restaurants in the Cunningham family, and I have a new favorite. No too expensive and right for any occasion.

Made a reservation a few days in advance. Arrived and was seated promptly. Our server was very attentive and very knowledgeable about the drink menu n the regular menu. We asked several questions about certain plates and their sizes to which she had no problem helping with suggestions. The starter and dinner choices were brought out quickly, but not in a rushed way. The wood fire wild mushrooms were delicious as well as our lamb shank and tomahawk pork chop meals. Presentation on everything was nice as well. We saw several other dishes being brought out and everything looked delicious. All in all I would definitely recommend Union 50 for a nice evening out- service and food were very good.

We met our cousins for dinner and started with the Pastrami poutine. It was excellent!!! My son and I had the swordfish, which was also excellent! My cousins were not very impressed with the kimchi meatloaf, but then again who would be? Meatloaf is meant to be made with ketchup, not spices 😉
