Excellent staff and food as always. The patio was perfect!
It was an extremely busy day and we had a party of 8. We were seated quickly, our service was timely and the food was excellent. I love the atmosphere and energy. Of course, the music was fantastic.
The customer service and food was excellent. Will be going back soon.
Quick and easy
While we did have a large group the server ignored the middle section of our table. He cleared off and got drinks for both ends while the people in the middle had to ask several times just to get water. Food was good, pretzel sticks were a little sad looking.
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! ❤️
Night out with my bestie!
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.
Food was good and it all made for an enjoyable evening
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.
Always a fun time! One of my reg places to go
