    Went Sunday for brunch expecting the drag show, but was told that it’s on Saturdays now. Definitely was sad about that but the vibes and DJ didn’t disappoint. The service was amazing and the DJ literally played everything. The food was delicious as well. Definitely will be back!

    Tables were close to each other, making it hard to have/hear our conversations. Maybe it was just a loud group. We asked to move, was much better. Food wait wasn’t long at all, that was surprising, given it was so busy. Food surpassed my expectations for sure, was really good.

    This was a good meal. Our server was excellent. My only complaint was that we were consistently RUSHED. Our dinner came out moments after the appetizer; we requested it be kept warm and then it came right back out again with a different server. My friend was offered her birthday dessert while I was still eating my entree. I must say I have never had that happen like this before. Very awkward.

    Wonderful service, delicious food with lots of good options/menu items, and beautiful scenery on the roof. Tables are a little close together, but it didn’t detract from the great time we had.

    Talk about shrinkflation. We've had the steak frites a few times before and it was delicious, but I couldn't believe the audacity this time around: $30 for what amounted to 3 steak nuggets and a pile of fries. We'll give it another try in the future since Union has been great in the past. I just hope this was a fluke and not a new trend.

    Everything was pretty good. Food itself I thought was just ok. Jacob our server was great. I liked that my water was constantly being refilled as it was a warm day. But tables are very close together and feel kinda crammed. The bathroom needed attention as it was gross and messy. Also do not leave anything behind at the restaurant and think you can get ahold of someone to retrieve it. I called the number on the website and emailed them for 3 days.. without any response back. Also, you cannot leave a voicemail. After a week, I’ve just replaced the item because I live 3 hours away and can’t get anyone to call/email me back.

    Seating on the rooftop was good for our party of three, but could see that it could get crowded quickly. The food came out quickly, service was good, but the flavor itself of the food was just okay. Some of the items could have used more seasoning. Also checking in was fine but it felt a bit awkward to wait in front of the revolving doors with a line of other customers coming in and out and blocking traffic.

    The food is good and would take it out from there. But the service was terrible, no refills in a timely manner, long waits for attention when needing things. And the table behind us had worse service than us, no one came to their table longer than ours.

    I hadn't been here for a long time, the facility is getting tired and needs a refresh, but for a summer night it was night to sit on the roof and enjoy the weather. I was pleasantly surprised with the food; it was very good and a good value. Our server was very good.

    I was VERY disappointed to arrive for our confirmed Rooftop reservation and be told it was closed for a private event. On a beautiful summer evening, I did not want to sit inside the restaurant. I would have preferred a notice on our confirmation reminder.

    We booked our reservation over a month in advance. We only go to Mpls. Once every other month or so. The food was delicious. It was a beautiful day. Would have been nice to be told the rooftop wasn’t open….

    This was my 2nd time to the restaurant when booking rooftop. Each time was denied seating rooftop due to private party. Sure wish some one would call and let me know it wasn't available. Restaurant is dirty and the food is lacking. I don't blame poor service when they obviously are new. I just can't go back, too many other options DT Mpls.

    We went for drinks at 9pm for a reservation booked weeks in advance. We got there at 8:58 and requested a spot outside. We were seated by the hostess, and were told we could move out when a table was available, but to let our server know they should follow us outside. Odd, but whatever. About 15 minutes after we were seated, a table outside became available, so a few of us went to hang there, while the other two in our party waited at the initial table for our drinks, and to inform the server of our move. After 5ish minutes outside, we were told by waitstaff that we couldn’t have the table as that portion of the restaurant was closing for a “private event.” We go back to our initial table, and the server said our drinks were still coming, with no mention of needing to move (it had been 25ish minutes). The drinks came 35 minutes after our arrival. Kind of a bummer, but not the most disappointing part of our experience here. As tables around us were finishing up, event staff were taking down the tables, and rearranging the place. People who came in at the same time as us were still eating, with tables coming down, and chairs being stacked and moved, clearly as confused as us. We were still working on our drinks and watching the delicate balance of this restaurant turning into a “private event”/nightclub. We were there for an hour, crossed paths with plenty of servers/hostess people and at no point did anyone mention that our reservation spot was needed for a nightclub. Until 10:08, a manager? came and told us we had to move because they couldn’t configure the couches around our “reserved” table. Luckily we found the whole thing comical, minus the 35 minute wait for our $17 subpar cocktails. We were contemplating a late night bite with our reservation, but glad we didn’t based on the whole experience. Needless to say, I don’t need this place on my list of “must visits” when I make my semi-annual trip into the city, and certainly won’t recommend to anyone.

    There wasn’t a meal delivered to nearby tables that didn’t look delicious, even after eating my own excellent meal. Except for the very brief rain before the roof could be moved back to cover the area it was the perfect spot for a preconcert dinner. I will be back.

    Noise level was through the roof…even though no roof. Waiter was so busy with a large table, he gave us no service. Wasn’t his fault. He had too much. Then we had to flag down other servers to get drinks and check.

    We ate Sunday brunch on a humid day but with the breeze it was very pleasant. I had the Egg White Frittata and it was delicious. Egg white dishes can sometimes be bland but not this dish. It was full of flavor and came with a nice side salad which was lightly dressed. My companion ordered the traditional eggs benedict and it was also delicious. The eggs were nicely poached and came with delicious breakfast potatoes. We ordered our food and it was served within 10 minutes of ordering. The servers were friendly and efficient. Overall a great place for Sunday brunch.

    Restaurant, table, glasses were all dirty. Manager was ogling bridal shower guests and licking his lips. Gross behavior. We ordered an appetizer, pork belly lollipops, and they just tasted like salt and were way overdone and tough. If you’re going to charge this much for food, it should be good, your restaurant shouldn’t be dirty, and your managerial staff shouldn’t be drooling over female guests period but at the very least not in front of your whole restaurant. Our server was great and got a good tip because none of this was his fault. When he brought our complaints to the manager though he didn’t even bother to come talk to us about our experience. At least they comped our appetizer and half of our drinks. We went somewhere else for dinner. The view of the city was nice but overshadowed by all the other short comings.

    Very unsafe area. I was approached twice walking a short distance into the restaurant. When we were seated on the rooftop there were homeless people shooting off fireworks right below us in the middle of the street. We felt very unsafe as the fireworks most definitely could have hit us. Our waiter rolled his eyes as if this was normal and almost dismissed it as we shouldn’t worry. He did not tell us how the restaurant was dealing with this. -later police arrived and so did a fire truck.Rooftop seemed very unclean. Hostess at the front was very rude and dismissive. Food was fine, came out cold, but we unfortunately lost our appetite due to uncleanliness and homelessness around. Overall, I am sad to see what this restaurant is turning into.. I used to plan many outings here for special occasions and LOVED the atmosphere, but I feel like those times have passed. Most likely won’t be visiting union again. Overall very rundown and unsafe. Very disappointing to see this happening.
