UNION Rooftop Ratings and Reviews
My husband and I celebrated our annivers ...
My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Union. The good: our food was delicious. The service was very good. The not so good: the rooftop was closed, and the restaurant was beyond loud. Everyone was shouting at each other. We asked for the quietest table and were seated next to a table of 9. I am weary of servers asking, How are WE doing? Is OUR food delicious? That talk is good for toddlers, but not adults. Lastly, even though our server knew it was our anniversary, they don't do the sweet little things - a small dessert, for example - that other restaurants do.

It was our first time at Union Rooftop, and I am quite impressed by the experience. I suggest going on the weekend so you can request Phil, one of the most polite and energetic servers I have ever met. Although the noise level and overabundance of Bachelorette parties were both excessive, the food, quality and immaculate service made up for both. I highly recommend the Beff Carbaccio, and their chefs also can provide a delicious burger as well.

The food was delicious. The service we had was wonderful. We were seated immediately, someone came to talk to us shortly after, and the menu was explained in detail and suggestions were given. Once we ordered, our food came out super fast and was hot and delicious. The only downside was how loud it was but it's understandable, it's a bar on a Friday night.

From reservations (which were cancelled by the restaurant the first time reserved), to calling while driving inquiring about valet parking...to waiting at desk (only customers) while the staff talked...to the ambiance (lack their of)...this was a complete disappointment. Then, hovered over to order (excessively); caesar salad made with KALE; food delivered before salads half done; completely untrained staff. Worst restaurant experience ever. Food was bland. Will not return.

Great place! I loved the rooftop and being able to dine outside. The food was fantastic and I was able to make a dish vegetarian. Server was nice and service was prompt. The area was pretty empty since my friend and I went for a late lunch and it was pretty quiet, which was nice. Overall great place and I would like to go back when the rooftop is out!

I ordered the flatbread & it was so salty I could barely eat it. It didn't have much taste - I was disappointed. It was the Margareta flatbread. It was a special occasion as I had taken my 2 grandkids to see The Lion King & this was a treat for them. They loved their burgers but I didn't like mine

It was great. I received a $75 gift card from my co workers for my wedding and the food was fantastic. I definitely recommend that people go there because the atmosphere was great and the food as I said was fantastic. My wife and I will definitely go there again and bring our friends. It was a little pricey for each meal but that's what you'll be paying for food in Downtown Minneapolis, but most can't match the environment that Union Rooftop provided.

We were sat and we were not greeted for 15 minutes. We actually had to go to the host stand and ask where our server was. They apologize and someone came over within a few minutes. The menus, both food and drink, were good. The food was very good and I thought reasonably priced. The view was fantastic and the atmosphere was very good. The only disappointment was in our service.

The experience was great, the roof opens and closes based on the weather. The weather was perfect so the roof was open. The sea bass was outstanding, the steaks were excellent and all the meals served at our table were delightfully presented and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Thanks for a great night out!

Great food and service. Our server made wonderful recommendations and was friendly and professional. One person in our party received the wrong order. Our server promptly had his order redone, took the entree off the bill and gave him a complimentary dessert. Nice touch!.

This was our first experience at Union. We needed to be re-sat due to the noise level and the second table was more private and much quieter. Our waiter was very casual but adequate in his service. Food quality was really good. I had sea bass that was cook perfectly and had a very nice flavor. My wife had the scallops and they were even better. We also split a wedge salad that was good. The price was on the high-end for the overall appearance, quality of service, and ambience.

My date and I were looking forward to a lovely, romantic outdoor dining experience. The Union Rooftop proved to be way to noisy, way too crowded, way to hot for us. Our waitress either didn't know the menu or was being patronizing toward my girlfriend. Either way, we paid for our wine and quickly left for another restaurant.

Great atmosphere, great bar scene. Both bar tender & server were a little slow to respond but it seemed to be quite a busy night. I thought our salads were a little small for the price, although the amount of chicken was a lot! Beautiful rooftop, great location. My overall impression was that it was a little chaotic and the hostesses didn't seem to know exactly what was happening. However, we had a good experience. I would recommend it to try but wouldn't necessarily choose to go back.

It was fun to sit upstairs and take in the downtown skyline. The menu is more limited than for dining downstairs, which we would have preferred given that we had two children with us. Our server was friendly but he was really busy so even if we caught his attention, it might take awhile before he got to us. I would try the Union again but if it was the same group, I would ask to be seated downstairs.

Great service, very accommodating with table request. We were hoping for a table out of the sun and were easily moved from our original location to a more shady spot. The staff was very friendly, courteous, and efficient. The food was delicious and came out in a timely manner. I'd highly recommend Union to friends, family, and colleagues.

The outdoor ambiance was refreshing after a day indoors at a conference. Service was excellent, food was yummy - especially truffle fries and egg/bacon hash browns. One of my dining companions had the salmon with quinoa an cleaned his plate. OMG! Try them. You'll love them!

We went to Sunday Brunch here after being told they ranked very highly for their food. It was a complete disappointment. While the ambience is interesting, the eggs benedict had hardly any hollandaise sauce, the basic breakfast was very average with toast that was limp and without butter or jam. Won't return here.

I have frequented Union and dubbed it as one of my favorite brunch spots for a long time. My experience this weekend has changed that. First of all, the food was cold and taste was subpar to say the least. Secondly, the “90-minute interval” is a joke! Our group of 10 had barely finished our food and were still ordering drinks when someone came up to our table stating that we had “15 minutes left”. Excuse me? I would still find this appalling if the roof top were full but there were open tables throughout the rooftop!
It was nice knowing you Union, you lost a loyal customer this weekend.

Exceptional food, quick and knowledgeable service, lively atmosphere, great outdoor feeling and views while under glass--that's Union Rooftop. Perfect pre-show diner place. It is sunny; if you're going while the sun's up, bring your sunglasses. Even the servers wore them!

I loved my experience at the Union Rooftop. It was my first time there and Adam my waiter was amazing. We were in town for a show at the Orpheum and were running a bit late. He made sure that our drinks/food and bill were out in enough time so we could get to the show with plenty of time to spare. I would 100% recommend the Union Rooftop to anyone looking for a place to eat. Such a fun experience!

We celebrated a co-workers birthday by having lunch at the Union's rooftop and soaking up a little vitamin D on a vivid blue sky day right downtown Mpls. We were seated immediately and had our choice of sun or shade. Our server had impeccable timing which allowed us a leisurely lunch but still got us out in less than 1 hour. I had the turkey burger with avocado, tomato and a crisp side salad which were both delicious. This is one of my favorite lunch spots because of the rooftop. I would recommend to a friend and often do!

My husband and I were very happy with our experience here. The rooftop is lovely the drinks were good and the food excellent. Our waiter was great. We are so glad we decided to try it out and have a great night on the town.

This is definitely a place to go for the drinks and atmosphere instead of food or service. The view is very pretty but the food selection and quality wasn't great. The service was poor, but we were a big group so I think she figured she'd get the automatic tip either way.

We waited 20 minutes before being asked for our drink order (and that was after we flagged down a server.) We were then told that the kitchen was about to close so we had to get our food orders in. The food was delicious! And being under the window roof during a thunderstorm was breathtaking! We left to check out other clubs but knew we'd be back to check out the dj and we were not disappointed...this was our favorite place out of the six places we went for clubbing. So service was very disappointment but the club and food were awesome!
