Kat was awesome as always! ❤️
Always great food. Service was excellent!
We had a big group for Sunday brunch and it was great. We had a reservation and they had a. Ice spot waiting for us when we got there. Our server was friendly, helpful and prompt. The food was good, lots of options.
I LOVE UNION!!!
Happy to have a table for eight on a Saturday night in the Short North! Good service and good food! Will definitely chose to come back!
Great food and service.
Very strong drinks, great food selection. My girlfriend and I couldn't hear each other across the table due to noise.
Terrible wine list and my fish was way overcooked. I am not sure why this restaurant is on Open Table.
We came for Valentine's Day and had the filet. Mine was so tough. My girlfriend's was under cooked. Even when sent back it came out medium. It was microwaved too. Yuck! They did take some $ off the bill but I was not impressed. It was my first visit. My girlfriend says brunch is good so we will probably give it another try.
Our waiter was AMAZING so kind and attentive. The floor manager also came by several times to check on us.
We love coming here! As per usual the food was excellent as was the service. Also, per usual we know how good the food is and ordered way too much!
Average food, very typical bar ambiance.
I liked everything about my visit except for the fact that they waited until we were gonna order to tell us they we no long participating in restaurant week.
Raymar and Nick were great! Thank you both!
Sunday showtunes are magical!
Always fun! Tristian was great and Nick (Manager) checked in to ensure all was good! Brian and Kat at the front are always welcoming! ❤️
Great food. Service a bit slow for a Monday afternoon. Fun upbeat restaurant with an extensive menu. Everything was delicious. Can't wait to go again.
Excellent restaurant. Amazing food and staff.
The waffle was amazing. Everything else that I tried was good.
The food is amazing! Such a great atmosphere. Great value as well. The drinks are amazing. The bloody mary bar is perfect.
We had an awesome experience — we had a party of 6 that came here on short notice (15 min) and they got us a great table and we were served right away. Our server was fun, helpful and efficient, and we all enjoyed our appetizers and meals. Have always loved this place, and will definitely be back for more!
Thank you for creating a great brunch atmosphere that I am in love with. My only regret this go round is getting my food before I got my waffle. By the time I got back to the table my food was ice cold.
Our server Drayven was awesome. Look forward to our next visit.
The singular worst dining experience we have ever had. Ever. On every front. Six of the eight entrees were sent back after waiting almost TWO HOURS for them. I usually don’t leave a review if I have nothing good to say: however, I felt I had an obligation to the public to leave this one. Hopefully, they were just having a very bad day.
Great food, drinks and service! Great ambiance! On street parking was available.
The staff was great while I waited an extra 45 minutes for my friends.
Great service and good food. Buffet is great value.
Wonderful place! Love it here and will continue going!
Great! Good value, strong drinks
Union is always fabulous. The food is great, service is great and the drinks will knock you down.
Great Sunday Brunch Buffet! Heads up - alcohol cannot be served until 11am 😊
Food is always good, service this time was quite slow even though it was pretty empty.
Same as always!! Please keep doing what you are doing. We bring out our of town guest every time and they are in love! Thank you for helping us build great memories!!
I love their brunch! It’s seriously so worth it. The food is amazing and it’s so well priced! It’s always a good time going there!
Great for brunch
It was my birthday dinner I have fun
Food was good but the it was slow to come out of the kitchen. The wait staff was attentive and professional.
This is by far my favorite brunch in Columbus. Buffet is such a steal and it’s a really upbeat environment to be with friends. 10/10
Union cafe is always a great experience. The atmosphere, the people and the amazing food. I love going here for brunch and I always leave happy and full. Oh and btw the waffles are to die for.
Birthday dinner for our son, a senior at OSU after the football game. Service was great, the grilled chicken on brioche bun was very dry and needed extra condiments to enjoy. Brussel sprouts had strong garlic flavor, but were nicely roasted.
No treat for the Birthday boy.
