Food and service was excellent. Seating location was bad. Out in the open near the front door with a consistent cold draft every time the door was opened.

Jay was our bar tender, he was very professional and fun. Highlight of the night for sure. My girl had the highway strawberry and loved it, I just had a draft Pilsner which was pretty solid. Food was good but not incredible. Had the house fries, mushrooms and lamb shank, everything was beautifully cooked and executed well but just lacked a little seasoning and that extra oomf I wanted out of the descriptions. Not a bad anything though. Definitely coming back for drinks and fries!

Valentine’s Day. Highly recommend sitting at the bar. The bartenders were friendly and extremely knowledgeable about what we might enjoy based on our tastes. The carrot cake is a must have after dinner

The food was not as good as it usually is. Heavy in the salt and the bone marrow plate had very little marrow. The steak was overdone as well.

The place is good and comfy, the service was good. The Tenderloin was very good but the 4 for 20 board was not so surprising, anyway the bacon was the only thing really really good of what we took.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We started with cocktails (an old fashioned and Aperole sprirz) and poutine with pastrami gravy - all were perfect. The wood fired wild mushrooms are like heaven served on a board. We split shrimp and grits. The shrimp were huge and cooked perfectly. They were a great pairing with the grits. The service was amazing. Can't wait to return!

Valentines Weekend date night. It was a cool place with a cool atmosphere. That’s were the best parts of dinner end. The charcuterie board was unique but it was just 2 slices of cheese with 6 thin pieces of meat for $15-18. Then we got the bone marrow and gnocchi, both we are normally huge fans of at other places, however NEITHER had any flavor. We didn’t even finish the gnocchi despite the price. The service was alright. He forgot drinks but it was busy so that’s understandable. His recommendations were the gnocchi and the meat on the charcuterie, neither were good so that was disappointing. All in all, super disappointed we spent our night out and big money on this place when we could have got a nice steak somewhere else for the same price.

Cunningham Group rocks, have had great times at Union 50. But after this weekends visit, we’ll take an extended break. Unfriendly staff, drinks sub par, food was average. Have had wonderful experiences here in the past. Big miss this time.

I had made a reservation for Union to celebrate one of our girlfriends birthdays and the customer service was awful. We made this reservation almost a month before the date. When we checked in with the hostess, they treated us like we didn’t have a reservation. They told us we could wait outside and they would call us when the table was ready. They couldn’t tell us when they could seat us because they had no tables available. I made the reservation for the bar and they put us in the back after waiting 20 minutes. When people in the party asked a question multiple hostess’s were rude, snippy, and cut them off. I love the food, but was not impressed with the service. I was so excited to take my friends here and this was a let down.

I had the best salmon I have ever eaten at Union 50 recently! I will order it again on my next visit! I also loved the chocolate terrine!!

Our waiter was very kind and helpful.

The only negative was my Caesar salad. It was tasty but very small for $10.

Staff was so helpful and attentive; our waitress was top notch, and the bartender even stopped by and chatted with us about the science and advanced techniques being utilized behind the bar! I was so impressed and felt very taken care of! The food was very good, drinks were spectacular, atmosphere had a great vibe, and overall, it was an impressive experience without being stuffy or pretentious. The wood-fired wild mushrooms were one of my favorite dishes as I ate my way through all of Indy. And the Beet by 50 cocktail will haunt my dreams (in the best way) until next time I have the pleasure of finding my way back. Thank you for a most memorable experience!

This was our second time to dine at Union 50 and we returned to take advantage of DevourIndy; we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. As an appetizer, the dates were rich and plump, warm and served with the appropriate dressings. Our butternut squash soup was smooth and rich, the best we'd every had; the striped bass was perfect, sitting atop the perfect trimmings. I enjoyed a most interesting and delicious Tres Leches cake; my wife, being gluten free, could not take advantage of the two dessert offerings for devour, but the service was kind to offer her a plate of six small chocolate truffles and whipping cream, which was outstanding.
