Union Cafe Ratings and Reviews
I love going to Union Cafe for their Sunday Brunch. The customer service is top notch. The servers are so friendly and kind. In addition, there are so many delicious choices including an omelet station, waffle station and a buffet with pancakes, eggs, breakfast pizza, sweet potato casserole, pasta, fresh fruit and delicious muffins.
One time when I went with my family, my son commented to a staff member that he wished he could have the eggs benedict without the ham (he is allergic to pork). Within minutes, that server brought him vegetarian eggs benedict. It was great that the chef made it just for him!
Ordinarily, we have a wonderful brunch at Union Cafe. This visit wasn't as pleasant. We are ignored by our waitstaff until we asked for assistance. We received the wrong drink order and were not assisted for the rest of the meal. The waffle bar was sub-par. It is usually one of my favorite experiences, but the waffle was burned and was actually incomplete from the griddle. We hope to have a better experience in the future.
We went to Union cafe for my friends 21st birthday and it was an AMAZING time. The food was great, the drinks were strong, and the servers were extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend this for anyone planning a special occasion event with a large group or just for any occasion really or no occasion at all. The vibes are unmatched by any other restaurant/bar in Columbus. I will probably go here 4 more times this week and might honestly have my wedding here.
The Sunday Brunch buffet was really good. However, the waiter wasn't that great! He seems unwilling to work and did not smile through out the time. Had a reservation there for my best friend's birthday because we have always wanted to try their Sunday brunch. We come for their Thursday long island night almost every week. Such a bummer that the service was bad that morning since we love Union!
The breakfast buffet is not vegan friendly. When I asked the server about vegan options, he didn't know and asked someone else who I think was a manager. His answer was "we have fruit" which is not a meal. We ended up having to leave and schedule another reservation for a different restaurant down the street. Luckily this second place had a variety of options including vegan friendly options.
I have been here before and really enojyed it. That being said I was very disappointted this time. I told my friends from out of town how great and fun this place was and that we had to go to the drag brunch. I put in a reservation and they even called to confirm the night before. When we get there they say that they have overbooked the inside and they have places outside. Ihe only problem is that its raining outside and the show (the reason we all came) was inside. Ruined the whole experience. The only reason we stayed was becuase we already paid for parking.
As a frequent Union patron, I was extremely dissatisfied this past Saturday. We made a reservation for the drag brunch, and upon arrival, we were told that they had overbooked their tables and that our table would be outside. It was around 50 degrees and raining, most of the tables had rain on the tables and seats. We had no option other than to go elsewhere to eat. We did come back and were extremely pleased with our server, Alexander, however we were unable to sit down inside until the show was over.
