This was our first time at Union 50, and overall it was fantastic. The only criticism is that the high top and low top bar tables could be staggered so that there is more privacy and those tables don’t feel like they are on top of each other.

This restaurant isn’t for everyone. The food is a bit ‘out there’, so no I would not recommend it

We always go to Union 50 for dinner before a concert at Old National. It’s really convenient. The food is predictably good. I wish they would mix up the menu a little with some additional seasonal food choices.

The business associate and I were bugged no less than 15 times once the end of our meal was approaching. There was one occasion not an entire minute had passed with two people seemingly pushing us out the door. Bad taste left!

Spice and food parings very unusual. The food ingredients were surely high quality, but low cost ingredients with high prices, Fries were very good with see salt and parsley. Great environment. Our server was highly distracted. I’m really on the fence about this place, probably will try it again if in the area.

Great meal as always but what’s with the valet parking only now. Pulled into a spot and was told it was $5 to park there. Parking lot was half empty. Ridiculous.

Loved it. Food was top notch. We got mussels as our entrée... it was my first time eating mussels. I’m not fancy enough to like those quite yet. I’m sure They tasted awesome to the trained consumer!

All the other food was very good and the value was awesome. Will be back

Strange thing to say in a review, but they had the cleanest silverware I have ever seen in a restaurant. No watermarks or other things tarnishing the silverware. Food was excellent. An expediter was making sure no dishes went out that didn't meet his standards and he gave feedback to the kitchen staff if needed. Drinks were excellent also and the server checked with us multiple times to see if we needed anything.

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!

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.
