My husband and I went last night. We had eaten here before but it was several years ago. Dining room is charming and we were promptly seated for our reservation. Menus were place down and water was poured. Our server arrived at the table 23...minutes later. No acknowledgment. No "I will be with you shortly". Nothing. When she finally got to us, she was quite short and we simply gave her our order. Tuna tartare and burrata appetizers were very good, although the tuna consisted of a single chip with tartare, seaweed salad and pineapple relish on it. Very good but two bites at most. Main course was short rib and duck - both very good. Servers brought our food our and our waitress never swung by to ask how anything was. The wait between the first courses was long. Dessert was ice cream and the brownie - both fine, not great. While I had a good dinner, the service was really was sub-par.More

Service was great! I had the tuna tartar, filet, and fruit tart. Tuna and filet was great but the fruit tart was a 2 star dessert. Overall, I would go back again!

First time here. We were supposed to go to Wildwood but there was a street festival going on in zero parking so I opened up open table and found this restaurant. So glad I did. First off it’s a price fix menu. No children’s menus....That means if you’re coming there with your family be prepared to pay $65 per person minimum unless you decide to upgrade to one of their other options. No bar but they do sell Cape May wine which were delicious ~ At about $35 per bottle. Amazing service, amazing food. Worth every penny.More

Union Park was always one of our "go to restaurants" prior to the pandemic. This was our first time back in approximately 15 months. It did not disappoint--food, service and ambiance were outstanding.
