What Our Guests Say

  • Great food, outstanding service!

    My wife and I stopped in Portland for the day, as the city is famous for its dining scene. That being said, UNION was definitely one of the best dining experiences we’ve had in a while! The place is very welcoming and nice, but not pretentious. The food was to die for and the service was impeccable! A must try!

  • Heavenly Food & Down to Earth

    My family and I ate here recently when my parents came to visit. Not only was the food absolutely incredible, but they paid careful attention to food restrictions. We greatly appreciated that. My 4-year-old daughter was also in tow and they made us feel right at home. We cannot wait to bring the rest of our family and friends here.

  • Memorable Dining Experience

    Chef Josh Berry was charismatic, funny, and sincere, sharing personal stories and experiences that made us feel like we were dining with friends! The food was incredible and the amazing chef and staff brought everything together to achieve perfection. It was one of the most memorable dining experiences we’ve ever had!

  • Michelin Star-Worthy

    I’ve been in Portland for the past 7 weeks for work and have visited many restaurants in the area. No other dining experience has drawn me back like UNION. What makes Union so special is Chef Josh Berry and his staff. They are attentive, accommodating, and committed to making each visit more enjoyable than the last.

  • Surprisingly Elegant

    We sat at the bar because there were no reservations to be had. The food was gorgeous, made in a way that highlighted all of the local ingredients. The fish with clams was truly exceptional (I am from Boston so I know fish.) And my husband's wild boar ragu made him swoon!
