Nicole was fantastic as a server! Prices have gone up -- we understand the Covid angle, but why so much?
Everything was fantastic.
Food is next level.
Service was great.
All around great experience.
Union is always a good spot! Good food. Great for football. Brunch too! Plea by of indoor and outdoor seating options.
Lisa Marie and the whole staff making the best of a COVID compliant dinning experience.
One of our favorites places to eat when in San Diego area!
We have been coming to Union since they opened. Always great service and awesome drinks. Ambiance is great and they follow COVID rules. Union is our go to on the weekends. They have lots of tables and outside seating, set up is great.
Amazing cocktails and the food is incredible for a sports bar.
Great food and service. We can't wait to go back again.
Great place to have drinks with friends.
Great place to meet for a meal or drinks! Indoor and outdoor seating options. Friendly & attentive servers, good menu options, yummy food!
Good food, great service and COVID friendly.
Fantastic service. Good food. We were outside so the occasional motorcycle was loud.
Enjoyed the beautiful outdoor space. It felt safe and clean- we had plenty of space around us. Service & food was excellent. Enjoyed the evening!
This place was fantastic. Great aesthetics and outstanding servers. And of course, the food is tremendous. The Wild Board Ragu has the chefs kiss. I’ll 100% be back
We miss bottomless mimosas. Still a classic though.
Cool spot! Wings were great but the cocktails & Mac & cheese is what makes this place amazing. Highly recommend.
Our sweet server (she was wearing pearls because it was her birthday) was amazing and her insightful menu suggestions made our dinner first-rate!
Great food, great service, lots of outdoor dining space.
The vegan burger is AMAZING! And the truffle fries!! So good!! Love this place!
Friendly service and good food! 🤙
Brussel sprouts were too sweet and slightly burned. The gumbo was delicious and filling. A lot of street noise made conversation difficult.
We are regulars at Union. Always great service, great drinks and food. It's always our go to place for a date.
Two words: Peanut Butter Pie.
Great service, quality and experience. My family and I felt safely distanced inside - though outdoor options are also available. We would go back!
Lisa-Marie was fantastic. The cornbread is amazing!
Everything about this place was great. Very unique cocktails. All the drinks and food my friends and I ordered was fantastic. Service was awesome. Will definitely be coming back again
We love coming to this place. They are doing a great job during Covid too with cleaning and spacing people out distance-wise. Always good service and good food. Fun atmosphere too!
super friendly staff and very safe environment
excellent food as always.
Really adjusting well to new situation
will go back for sure
On if my favorite places in Encinitas. Fantastic energy...great ambiance and the food is consistently flavorful and fresh.
The staff and mgmt did everything possible to make this an enjoyable date.
Great outdoor venue and really like the new menu - barbecue was a nice addition
Union is always a great go to for locals, and tourists....
Mask enforced until you get seated, staff is helpful and work well in teams.
Food was delicious, smoked mushrooms- cmon! Not served with bread so order a small side to get all the yummies. Pass on their Impossible burger- crumbly and not worth it, but the blackened tacos are a hit. Wish the bottomless would come back- like now!
Great dinner with Grandkids and 21st Birthday for one.
Service was great, food was excellent watermelon salad was a huge hit. The burger came out under cooked but staff handled it in a great way. Definitely returning.
Great neighborhood bar/restaurant with good selection of beers on tap and mixed drinks. Delicious burgers, flatbreads, etc. We've tried a lot of dishes and they are always excellent. Can be noisy when crowded (which is quite often) but they've expanded over the years and have more seating than in the past.
This is a unique spot in a city with several unique spots. Food is excellent and interesting, and the mixed drinks take a slightly different spin on the traditional mixology which makes you want to order one of each just out of curiosity. It's a bit trendy, so wear your best shirt and make sure your hair is at it's best.
We did not have beer or cocktails, which is probably what most customers come in for. The fries were excellent. One guest had the shrimp & grits, which were good. The Wedge salad was pretty good except for the large thick chunks of bacon (?). These were not good at all. Too tough to even chew. (Traditional crispy bacon bits would have been much much better. ) The filet was average. Service was very good- Cambria was friendly.
Great place....good service, good food, good value....
Great fresh food - fun atmosphere.
Love Union for so many reasons. I've been here several times... for drinks, for lunch, for snacks, for a full dinner... and it's always great. It's casual and homey, but definitely beach-bar chic. There are different sections to be seated - at the bar and at common high tables, as well as separate "rooms" throughout the restaurant. We sat in the outdoor section in the back with heaters and we were really comfortable. We started with guac and chips. I'm a bit of guac snob because I make my own, and this guac was really good. We also had wings - just enough spice, nice and small, and cooked perfectly. (Sometimes wings are too big and not done enough.) I got a vegan bowl even though I'm not vegan. I just wanted lots of veggies. This had cauliflower and sweet potato and it was delicious. In the past I've gotten burgers and they are amazing. I would also highly recommend the shrimp and grits. Honestly, you can't go wrong. I've never had a bad meal at Union.
