Union & Finch is an American style bistro located at 1528 West Union Street in Allentown offering lunch, dinner and brunch on weekends. The menu consists of casual fare that will include "comfort" foods along with familiar favorites with a twist. We have a seasonal rotation of select items on the menu while keeping our concept simple. Our goal is to offer quality food and drinks at reasonable prices on a daily basis with a mature sense of hospitality and playful vibe. We combine the nostalgia of a long-lost neighborhood joint with a modern bistro setting to create the area’s newest destination for relaxed, casual dining.

Great food. Ate outside. House party down the block was loud but not the restaurant’s fault. Waiter was new so pleasant but not helpful with the menu. Overall very good. Would go back for sure.

We enjoyed our experience. We are senior citizens, and this was a very eclectic and interesting place with a diverse menu and people. The menu features a variety of unique choices so that anyone can find something to their liking. There were influences from India, Mediterranean, Vegan, Vegetarian as well as interesting burgers (some served on a waffle) fries, wings and other more conventional choices. My wife had a beet salad that was really good and fresh (and big) we shared a naan with dips appetizer that was served with very good and fresh hummus and a spicy red pepper dip. It was very good. I had Moroccan Chicken - interesting combination of chickpeas, sliced olives and spices. It was good but will probably try something else next time. There were plenty of “conventional” people there but it’s a very accepting and welcoming place for people of all persuasions. As it ought to be.

My sister and I were here for lunch on a Friday. The staff was friendly and quick to seat us. We sat at the bar where the bartender took our drink orders right away. The food came out quickly and was delicious. I love their beet salad so much, I had to get that and it didn't disappoint. My sister tried their new couscous salad. It was delicious. We also split some cheese curds... WOW. SO addictive. The whole experience was just perfect. LOVE U&F!

Stopped in before a show. We were welcomed and sat right away. Great selection of draft beer and cider. Staff was wonderful, good sense of humor and ver welcoming. Food was good, we all had burgers. They were cooked as we requested them. It was busy, so it took a while for our food to come.out but we were checked on and informed.

We arrived on time for our scheduled seating and were promptly seated. Everyone was very friendly and I remember that the Bar Tender ask us how we were today? It was a clean establishment. The room seemed festive because there was a group of ladies celebrating a birthday which is always uplifting. Everyone in the dining room seemed happy and one man offered to take a picture for the Birthday group.
Our food arrived in a timely manner and was warm and very tasty. We received a healthy portion of French fries which were delicious. The other ladies in our party enjoyed the platters so we will definitely be back. One plus for the restaurant is that one lady has a Gluten allergy and they accommodated her needs.

All the brunch dishes were absolutely delicious! We ordered a couple of cocktails, but the Mediterranean Mule was the standout. Ate outside in the charming covered seating area. Only wish we’d known they have a parking lot because one of our party has a hard time getting around. Next time!

Was very disappointed this visit. Last time I was here I had the crabcakes and they were great and service was great. Wednesday night it wasn’t crowded and it took us an hour to get our meal. It was so so salty Neither one of us could finish it. We told the waiter that the food was super salty he didn’t really seem to care and kind of just blew it off. I was hoping he would tell the chef so that they would not make it so salty for the next person. Seriously it was like the top of the shaker fell off. Anyway I don’t think We will go back. Bummed.

Excellent brunch and dinner spot. The menu doesn't change as often as I'd like but the food is great. Our most recent visit was for a family brunch (table of 6). Our server was exceptional; I lost the receipt and regret we don't recall her name. She took a great photo of our group, was attentive but not intrusive, and was knowledgeable about the menu. The Full English Breakfast was perfect for me (there can't be a better sausage on anyone's menu) and no one had a complaint in the entire group (might be a first). Indoor and outdoor seating available. My only gripe is that the bathrooms are for one user at a time, which backs things up a bit (and the resulting line gets in the way of servers exiting to the outdoor seating areas). However, there probably isn't much they can do about this, due to ADA requirements and the relatively smaller size of the restaurant. Overall, this is one of my favorite spots for dine-in and takeout.
