We decided to try lunch this time and it was just as great as their breakfast options. I got a falafel sandwich which came with fries and a side of macaroni and cheese. I would recommend all of these things. My boyfriend got their grilled chicken sandwich which he also loved but just thought it was a little on the sloppy side to eat. This place never disappoints. We'll be back.

The food and drinks here are awesome! I ordered a rare flat iron steak and eggs and it was beautifully rare.

My only tiny complaint is the parking. I had no idea there was a parking lot! It's behind the building, so it's not obvious

Outstanding restaurant with an owner who truly cares about his guests! My wife & I took my mother there back in August & the owner remembered we were from the Poconos. Very cool place with a smooth decor and great music.
My mom & I had huge burgers cooked perfectly and my wife had a monstrous lobster roll! Wings and a mozzarella sun dried tomato appetizers were also top notch. We LOVE this place, just wish it was closer to our home!

This is a biased review in that I love going to Union & Finch and wish it was in walking distance from my home.
We were there for Sunday Brunch for the 6th or 7th time, say no more!!!

My first time, and I really liked the place. Food was excellent!!! Only negative is that I like wine to be served in wine glasses that have a stem. Didn't like the wine glasses used because your hand covers the glass and that makes the wine warmer -- not my thing!

Great place to eat, I especially recommend the maple bacon poutine waffle and fries.. absolutely wonderful!! The burgers are also great with house made pickles! The service is typically spot on, if you sit in the bar area and have Bradley serve you,.. your in luck he's awesome!!

Burger and a beer night for $10 is great on a Thursday. Burger is super delicious. One thing that wasn't great is the service. 4 of us ordered different burgers with different toppings and different cooking temperatures. We all got the wrong toppings and wrong fineness. I asked for medium rare, I got medium well with wrong type of cheese. My husband ordered medium well and got medium rare. The other 2 in our party got theirs wrong too. The reason this happens is because the servers do not write anything down and try to memorize your order. It's too much to remember. We did not send anything back because they were super busy. We just traded food amongst ourselves. Then we had to ask to receive our fries and our beers. Overall service wasn't great, but the food was tasty so we decided to let them off the hook. We've been here several times and the orders are sometimes wrong due to not writing down the orders. But the food and drinks are always tasty.

Good food and ambiance. The only thing I’m up set with the place we were kick out due to staying about an hour and half. I was enjoying everything but my waitress come and say we need vacate for a 645 reservation. We were actually on our way out but she has to say it....bad thing!!!

This restaurant is a little gem. We were in Allentown on business and had a lovely dinner there with five people. The menu offered a wide range of offerings, all of which were delicious--from appetizers to entrees. Also, there was some cool and interesting features, like a pickle jar for an appetizer and vegan spaghetti squash with a tomato pomodoro sauce! Unfortunately, no one tried dessert, but maybe next time. The service was perfect--friendly and accommodating. We would definitely eat there again. As an added bonus, it has an off-street parking lot...if you're in Allentown, I would definitely recommend it.

Everything was excellent, my only complaint was that the gnocchi in my dish seemed VERY soft. Like, nearly mashed when I chewed them. Perhaps I’m used to eating gnocchi that are soft in the center with a slight crisp to the outside? Either way it didn’t deter me from enjoying the whole meal immensely. And oh my godddddd the poutine! GET IT!

As usual our visit to Union and Finch was pleasurable. The service was excellent and the cocktails were tasty. As an appetizer my wife and I shared the fried cauliflower which we had on a previous visit and it was just as good as the first time. As our entree we shared the union burger which was very good. We also shared a new addition to their menu, the lobster roll. I was very anxious to try the lobster roll as it’s usually a favorite of ours when we could find them. I must say the lobster meat was tender and was abundantly stuffed into the roll, however I didn’t find the sandwich very tasty at all. It’s just lacked something. I wouldn’t order it again as it is but I would hope they would redo their edition of the lobster roll and perhaps I would be willing to give it another try.

We had a great experience at Union & Finch. We went for brunch, and had the shakshuka and a burger and both were good. Service was attentive and friendly. We would definitely come back on our way through Allentown again.
