Arrived about an hour and a half before our reservation. We sat at the bar and had a few drinks. The bartenders were terrific. We were told that they may be able to get us to our table early. They did. The dinner was outstanding. I had the tomahawk pork chop. I highly recommend this and will have it again. Our server was OK. She lacked personality and was not very attentive.

Had a great time celebrating my birthday at Union 50! Right now they delicious “Mean Girls” inspired cocktails. I had the “That’s so Fetch”... it was so good! I had the beef tenderloin and it was delicious. They let us bring in our cake and stored it for us! Great waitstaff... it was a great time!

We came here from out of town to celebrate my birthday and it was phenomenal. Michael took care of us and everything was wonderful from start to finish. Beginning with (simple) fries with a couple dipping sauces and the bone marrow onto the entrees of pork chop and lamb shank and finishing with the carrot cake. It definitely made us rethink some of our favorite restaurants in Fort Wayne. Highly recommend!

I am a consistent patron of Union 50 given their diversified menu, consistently good food quality, and diversity of their "specials". The hostesses are always courteous and prompt. There does seem to be some "turnover" with the waitstaff but overall the quality of service has pretty much remained consistently good. Some exceptions have occurred (e.x. not initially receiving my credit card back and an occasional bad attitude) but these, so far, have been fairly uncommon. One suggestion is that the bartenders should be more observant of their wine handling. On a couple of occasions, my wine by the glass choices have been subject to an amount of oxidation or have been mildly corked.

Food a little spicy- the mussels and some of the charcuterie. But we will return!

We got a warm greeting from Paula who was hosting - she remembered us from Stone Creek in Zionsville a few years ago. Hannah, our server, was the best. She confidently made recommendations that we took and she was spot on. She took very good care of us and Paula came around a couple times to check on us. And of course the food was superb. We also thought the Mean Girls drink menu was hysterical! We both ordered cocktails, so there you go.

Great food and service. Were able to enjoy conversation because the noise level was not bad. However, our reservations were for early evening so I'm not sure how noisy it would be l later.

The only complaint I have is that when I ordered the roasted half chicken it was very chewy. My mom enjoyed everything she had, the dessert, fries, and cocktails were perfect.

I wanted to show off the dining options in Indy and brought some business partners to dinner at Union 50. The food was wonderful, with attentive wait staff, and lots of local beer options. My colleagues raved about it saying they liked the casual atmosphere with the upscale food choices.

A superb and relaxed environment that provided the perfect backdrop for my family's annual Easter Dinner out of town. The food, the conversation, and the hospitality was dignified, informative and passionate. I would recommend this place 1000 times over.

Another wonderful dinner at Union 50. My girlfriend and I shared a Poutine appetizer, the gnocchi, and a king salmon special, all of which were excellently cooked. We enjoyed the unique Game of Thrones-themed cocktail menu as well. Service was speedy! Would highly recommend for a nice date night or group get-together. Just remember to make reservations on the weekend!

It seems we almost always choose a Cunningham restaurant when we go out. You know you will get a fabulous meal and great service no matter which one you choose. Since each has its own unique menu, it's fun to hit them all. I actually ate at Livery on Tuesday and Union 50 on Saturday. I try to order something different each time. This time at Union 50 I chose the kimchi meatloaf. It was fantastic! My husband had the scallops and thought they were incredible. Thanks for giving us so many options GRG and keep up the good work!

Outstanding food! Service was slow and not very attentive. Our server took a long time to attend to us for any reason. It took a long time to place our order, then to get attention after placing the order. I'm not sure if the restaurant was short-staffed, but they were not that busy.

The food was amazing! My party of 3 shared tuna crudo as an appetizer, which was very well done. I could have ordered that again as my entrée. I had the scallops, which were just a touch underdone, but very flavorful. One colleague had the lamb shank, which he said was amazing. It was perfectly seasoned and cooked. He finished the entire dish, even the marrow! Another colleague ordered the shrimp & grits. He was surprised to find cajun-style shrimp & grits in Indianapolis and pronounced it very authentic.

I wanted something savory for after dinner, and the only option I was offered was the charcuterie board. I selected 3 cheeses, which were all very good. The presentation was nice. The amount served was too much for after dinner. It would be nice to have an option of selecting a smaller charcuterie platter for after dinner.

I will definitely visit Union 50 the next time I travel to Indianapolis.
