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.

I came to Union 50 with a group of 8, four adults and four children 9 and under. We were promptly seated right in front of the garnish and expedite station which we found to be very entertaining. We were all treated with the utmost politeness and concern, including the children. The food was absolutely amazing.
My son ordered a grilled cheese that was humorously too large for his mouth. The chef actually noticed this (we didn't complain, nor did we see a need to do so) and sent out an entirely new plate with a thinner sandwich for him. Really above and beyond.
The next time I am in Indianapolis, Union 50 will be on my itinerary.

One of my wife's favorite restaurants so we have to eat there at least once during the devour Indy specials. The waitstaff is always extremely personable and competent and the rib eye my wife had was the best she ever had. I tried the Branzino and was very much impressed and will look for that in future. If you haven't been here before....the cheese boards and fries are something I always look forward to. We also belong to the program they have which gives you points for dining at their establishments...it would be wise to start that right away also.

We had a lovely evening at Union 50. We shared the Grand Board (Chefs Choice), cocktails and dessert. Every bite and every sip was delicious. Service was delightful. Our new fav for date night, especially when we have tix for a show at the Murat which is only about a 2-3 minute walk away.

This was our first time at Union 50 and we were extremely pleased. We will definitely be going back. The food was delicious, the presentation was awesome, and everyone was very nice. I will say, though, that our experience would not have been as good as it was if it wasn't for our waitress, Sophia. She is absolutely wonderful and took the time to answer any questions and never once made us feel like we were bothering her. When we go back, we will be checking to see if she is working and request a table in her section. Thanks!

Union 50 was one of the best restaurants that I’ve experienced! Beginning with the ambiance, the excellent service, the server’s description of the menu items were perfect. The food was amazing! I was in town for the weekend and it was a pleasurable surprise.

I recommended it to the local airport staff as a must. It was a perfect date location. From the appetizers to the decadent chocolate cake everything was incredible!

Waiter started the experience off excellent. We told him we had never been and he recited from memory numerous items from the menu. From drinks and appetizers to entrees he covered it all. Fantastic service the entire time. Food was fantastic and well worth the cost. Have already recommended to several people and will probably wind up going back myself.

Superb food and stellar service... definitely worth the splurge! The space is lofty and beautiful but a little loud once it fills up, however, the tables are small enough that it can still feel intimate. Highly recommend the chef's choice charcuterie as a starter---everything there is fantastic.

I was originally looking for a place that had a jazz or blues dinner venue, at the request of my out of town guests. Although we learned upon our arrival that ”Union 50” did not have live music on Sunday, the food was so delectable and well presented, that not another word was mentioned about the music venue - the rest of the evening only consisted of conversation praising the food. My compliments to your cooks!

Enjoyed our dinner at this place again. Truffle fries is a must-to-have for its freshness and distinctive flavor. It is a great starter while you are waiting for your next course. Scallops are seared perfectly and served on a bed of combined delicious. Service was well-timed. We enjoyed the cozy yet modern atmosphere.
