We almost walked out as no one paid us any attention after we were seated but before we got up an extremely nice wait person came and asked if she could help us! She remained attentive throughout our meal We had a delicious, perfectly dressed garden salad and the Union pizza with sausage substituted for the speck. Unfortunately the makeup... More

Whether you are looking for an American hamburger or a Portuguese Fish Stew, you'll find either of them here. They'll both be delicious. Located in central Claremont, which is a darling little town, you'll be delighted with either indoor or outdoor seating. This restaurant is worth a stop.

1st timers. Great food! The salmon was perfectly cooked and delicious . Made reservations for inside (cause weather has been so grossly hot) and seated right when we walked in, on the opposite side against the bar. Not ideal. Listened to bartender talk.. yuck, but oh well now we know. Outside would have been ideal! Has a nice romantic ambience... More

I love this place. I really do. And you need to know how to play the service game if you want to have a good experience. Order your drinks, wine, whatever. When they bring that, order an appetizer. When they bring that, order your salad. When they bring that, order your entree. If you don't follow this protocol, you will... More

Some ambitious touches to the menu. They're certainly trying. But the flavors and presentations don't seem to jibe very well. Ate in their courtyard that was a tad cold. So dark you had to use your cell phone for light to read the menu. Surrounded by tables with dogs. Some quiet. Some distractingly active. Salmon bearnaise seemed overpriced, overcooked and... More

This is an interesting place, with an interesting open courtyard (including a bocce ball court), and a style of its own. The menu does not do justice to the quality of the food. There were plenty of appetizers and the quality of the food was superb. I had the salmon on a bed of asparagus and it was phenomenal. Other... More

Good food and well prepared. Wonderful atmosphere and bar. Good whisky selection. Great gourmet pizza. Has a relaxed feel I enjoy. Been there many times and will keep coming back.

We had not been to Union on Yale in a couple of years. It was very good! I enjoyed the Hanger Steak! The duck was also cooked to perfection an very tasty! The was a tad overpriced, however the dessert ( rhubarb crumble) was fab! This place is definitely a must in Claremont!

The food is good. The wine list is good. The cocktails are good. BUT! there is an open courtyard outdoors with a pit for playing petanque (or bocce). So cool. There is a pizza of the week and a seasonal vegetable featured as well on the menu. The courtyard outdoors retains some of the mature trees from the original business... More
