            Everything (service, drinks, vibe, & music) was good other than the food. Lobster BLTA was $24 with 2 tiny pieces of lobster.

            Food was mediocre, you are paying for the view more so than quality food. Your money would be better spent somewhere else.

            We went here for a pre show dinner. The service was good and mindful of our show schedule. The noise level is high due to the acoustics of the glass ceiling. Also be aware that it’s like dining in a green house- can be VERY bright in some guests eyes depending on time of day. The Steak frites was ok- expect a HUGE pile of large sized fries enough for 3 people. Firecracker shrimp is breaded which I may have missed in the description- but the glaze is balanced sweet and salty. Rose sangria was nice and crisp. The spicy blood orange margarita was sweeter than I like for a “spicy” drink but I wasn’t surprised because…blood orange. Caesar salad was good. Overall the portions here are huge so if you wanna chow down and soak up some sun you’ll be all set.

            I enjoy the setting and ambiance. The drinks were great. The food was okay but not worth the price. Our server tried hard but was delayed with taking our order and bringing the check. I just wish the food was better.

            We came here for our prom dinner and it was great! The service was wonderful, our server had a really great attitude, he was charming and very helpful. The food came quickly and it was good! The fries were super great. I would definitely come back and recommend this to a friend.

            Sunday Brunch DJ was good, music good and vibe was good, but sound could be turned down a bit. It was too loud. Other than that, it was fun, energetic, good music, good food and good service. A nice place to brunch if the music is turned down a few notches. Brunch menu offerings deliver a nice variety of breakfast & lunch options. My idea of a great brunch menu.

            Absolutely loved the place, incredible service, absolutely delectable food. Location is pretty much perfect. The noise level was moderate but I had no problem with it considering it was pretty busy, just something that comes with that amount of people.

            Cool place and great Sunday brunch food, but the music from the DJ was so loud we couldn't talk to each other across a small table. Waiters had to yell for anyone to hear. Other than that, it was a nice spot.

            I ordered the steak frites (medium), which came with 3 medallions of beef. When they arrived, they were medium well, well done and so far done it was no longer steak. They did replace them, but only one was barely medium. The other two were closer to well done. I did not want to wait another 10 minutes for an iffy replacement while my husband's food was getting cold. Ambience wise, maybe I am just old, but it was very loud. I expected better views as well, I assumed they were higher up than the 3rd floor. On a positive note my husband's buffalo chicken pasta was good and his drink was strong.

            The place is actually really dirty. Your feet stick to the floor, and there was an actual pile of trash next to our table. Food was good, although my burger was begging for some salt. Drinks were great!

            A great place to dine before a show at Pantages. Can't beat the gorgeous feeling of this bright rooftop space. Our server Laura was super attentive and upbeat; she kept our glasses full and we were able to finish up in time for our show. The vegetable pad thai is pretty meh - most Chinese takeout places do a way better job at giving this dish more flavor and depth. I'd skip it. Hubby really enjoyed his chicken cordon bleu, however.

            Molly was an awesome server! The food was all delicious. It’s great food - and enough to fill you. It gets a bit loud so can get tough to hear some of the conversation but would recommend it if your ok with a louder space.

            Already telling my friends and family about this place! Food was great! Server was super friendly and helpful. They made us off menu espresso martinis even though the espresso machine wasn't on. It was a little noisy and kind of cold but not intolerable and understandable because we were under a glass roof! Fair trade.

            Took over an hour for the entree to come. Had to rush to our show. Called manager, never responded.

            The food at Union was good, nothing special. What was rather unsettling was how filthy this place was. It is severely in need of a good cleaning. Dining while swatting fruit flies is not my idea of a quality restaurant.

            Hair and eyelashes in food. Gnats EVERYWHERE and ended up getting in our drinks. Service was so slow which was surprising because there was only 3 tables of people.

            Went to Union with a friend who is truly gluten allergic. There was no gluten indication on the menu and even the manager seemed unsure of what was gluten-free. It did not inspire confidence so we didn’t eat much because we didn’t want her to get sick.
