Union Bar & Grill Ratings and Reviews
Had a 6:30 reservation on the main floor. They had closed the main floor dining room for a private party and all that was available for reservations was the bar. We (2) checked in at 6:15 and were never called for a table. By moving a chair, we squeezed up to the bar and ate there. The bartender provided good service. Had an 8 o'clock show. Wouldn't have been able to eat if not for squeezing in at the bar.
My sister-in-law and I came for happy hour and dinner before we saw Wicked at the Orpheum. I was sat at 5:47 pm and a server didn't approach the table until 5:59. Luckily we got our order in before happy hour ended. They seemed either very short staffed, or very inattentive. The restaurant was busy for a Tuesday. We had the pepperoni flatbread, it was just fine. The buffalo wings could have been cooked a bit more to make them crispier. The wedge salad was delicious. Will return for value and rooftop.
Date night before going to the theatre
Started with happy hour, ordered the Arancini risotto balls and BBQ chicken flat bread. Risotto balls were very good, but was underwhelmed by the BBQ chicken flat bread (which arrived luke warm at best) BBQ sauce overpowered the taste) Would have been nice if our waitress would have checked in with us 1 more time before HH ended, but she did not. Ordered the fish and chip entrée, very tasty and temperature was nice and hot
They had my reservation incorrect due to "computer issues". Instead of 5 people, they had us down for 2. I would call to make reservations at Union if I go back. They were able to accommodate us, thankfully.
Food and drinks were good, location is best part of restaurant.
The food was marginal, nothing special. We had the black and blue burger and it was very dry and no flavor; The potato twisters were good but only lukewarm. We had the onion rings and they were really greasy and the barbecued pulled pork but the barbecue sauce was really sweet. Our waitress, Angelina was awesome! She made my hubby's birthday really special- because our food was so marginal, she gave him a piece of chocolate cake with a beautiful firecracker candle!!
The waitress was great, the food was grand. The rooftop was overcrowded though, with tiny tiny tables all set up in a row. I had to apologize to my date several times because I was embarassed about how they crammed us in like sardines. I made a reservation for a table by the window two weeks before hand and they lost the reservation and gave us a 2 x 2 table next to the rest room, and where the wait staff was going in and out. We couldn't even hear eachother talk. Never again on Valentine's Day. They tried to make it special with giving each guest a rose, which I will give them credit for. Also the waitress, like I said, was amazing but youd expect them to consider size and breathing room way more than they did. They set it up ahead to cram people in, and that's exactly what they did. The couple next to us had they're table literally 1 foot apart from ours - now picture being surrounded by that on all 4 sides for about 7 rows and 4 columns.
This was a disappointing visit. It was our first time to Union Bar & Grill. Service was fine other than conflicting information about whether they were having happy hour from 3-6pm as posted. Despite it being 5:30pm, ultimately we were told there was no happy hour. More importantly to us, the food was mediocre. The ceasar salad was plain, the chicken in the pesto chicken was rubbery, and the toppings on the flat bread pizza were skimpy.
Went to Union prior to show at Target Center. Union is one of the few restaurants in the area that take reservations - which is nice when you have a show to get to. We were even delayed from our reservation time due to traffic. I called to let them know we would be late, and when we arrived our table was still ready! No stress involved as a pre-show drink and meal!
I was in Mpls for the Art Garfunkel concert with my 2 daughters. The food was fine, not great. Our sever, Charles was attentive and friendly. The happy hour beer choices were extremely limited but ok overall. It was a nice time but not good enough to merit another visit.
Even with our reservation they sat us on high top tables in the bar. Our waitress was very blunt and did not explain or give suggestions in regards to the email. I would plan on going back to give it a second chance but would definitely head upstairs to the rooftop and not within the bar & grill section.
We were searching out venues for a grooms dinner and wile the rooftop appeared to be a nice space we went to the dining room to have dinner and I ordered the recommended steak. It was the worst steak I have ever tasted, it reminded me more of liver than steak and their bearnaise sauce recipe needs to be scrapped and overhauled. My wife ordered a burger which had good flavor but when she went to cut it in half in order to make it easier to eat, it is like it deflated and completely fell apart.
The Gentleman for the Valet parking was so polite. Our waitress ,,the service was good. The food was not the best. Had a steak, was chewy, and not seasoned very well, especially for paying $20. The cheesecake we had you good tell it had been frozen, almost tasted after the freezer. Truly disappointed in overall experience. Will never go back!!!!
