Absolutely love this restaurant. The chocolate bread pudding is one of the best things I've ever had! Burratta (pictured below) was delicious, as was the mushroom bechamel pizza with sage. The kale salad was not ordinary at all! Delicious soft cheese, avocado and perfectly dressed!...More

Ate here the other night and it was really great. Our waiter recommended the roasted cauliflower and kale, as well as the pea shoot bruschetta, both were excellent. My son had the pork ragu pasta and my husband a pizza -- everything was delicious. Even...More

While Union does serve very good, thin-crust pizza, I am speaking to the excellent options for those of us who have no choice & must eat GF. Combine Union's hot & cold small plates for a varied & superb taste palette. Soups & salads are...More

Mussels and caesar salad have always been favs here. (Well, of course the cocktails, too.) But we tried a lamb sausage/eggplant/olive pizza for variety, and were wowed. Flavor explosion! Good friendly service. Can be loud and crowded, though, especially around show time for Space. Come...More

Union is our go-to place. Always a fun vibe, great service and yummy, healthy, interesting food. Cocktails are A+. Don't be intimidated by a wait time. It always goes fast.

Didn't realize this was the same location as concert venue, cute restaurant, a little loud but the service and selection were great. Pizzas were delicious, I got the Sunday special, lasagna bolognese...large enough to share. Dessert was delightful as well.

Tried several new beers here, most are not drafts, however. Pizza (special vegetable), salad (fennel and arugula), and the mussels were all very good. Servers very nice. Went to the show after, right on time!

Great place for a glass of wine with friends, and/or a great dinner. We usually go early as it often gets very crowded, especially when there is a show in the "Space" in back. The changing menu reflects items in season. Flavors are combined really...More
