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.

First, parking was a challenge. The restaurant is in a residential area with narrow streets. But after circling the block a couple times we found a spot.

We had a reservation for Saturday night and were seated right away. Service was great and the food was excellent. Our only negative with the restaurant was that it was very loud. We were in the dining room but there were three tables with 8-10 people each who were all talking loud. The noise level might not have been so loud if it hadn’t been for those big groups

We were first timers at Union and Finch, and chose to celebrate my moms birthday there on 2/16/19. Service was outstanding and they were waiting for us when we arrived which was a blessing considering we were a party of 12 with 4 young kiddos. The food was tasty. My biggest disappointment was a few menu items are listed on their website menu, but we no longer available in the restaurant for dinner. Just slightly bummed because I had it set in my mind to order a grilled chicken sandwich.

U but still....) It's more like going to friends and having them take care of you. The menu is truly distinctive and changes regularly without taking away stuff you just discovered you could love. Go, and go, and go again and again -- it's a home away from home!

Brunch was wonderful. I had the fried green tomato BLT. The bacon was nice and crispy, tomato fried to perfection with crunchy iceberg lettuce on the sandwich. My husband had the 3 egg omelet and he said it was one of the best, loaded with flavor. This place was hopping with customers. Only downside is that is was quite loud inside.

Eight for Eight for Eight Is Great - Here for the first time, all eight people at the table had good things to say about the drinks, appetizers entrees and service. The pork chops, duck breast and salmon got especially rave reviews. Two things to know before you go...parallel parking on the street can be limited; and if you are looking for a quiet spot, this is not it. A lively crowd and brisk pace of business means lots of conversation, laughter and enjoyment. Finally, the owners made a point to approach us and thank us for coming to this fine establishment. We will be back.

The only negative feedback is, my daughter in law had ordered her eggs hard cooked and had to send them back twice because the waiter didn’t specify it when she placed her order with him. She wasn’t charged for her meal which was very generous of the restaurant, otherwise, we had a very enjoyable time in celebration of my birthday on Sunday.

Everyone enjoyed their meals very much! We were a little disappointed that we didn’t have access to the full lunch menu. It wasn’t clear anywhere that we could see that we would only have the brunch menu to order from.

I’m vegan, so I ordered the fried green tomato blt without the bacon and aioli. I was expecting the tomatoes to be more pickled than they were so it was quite bland.

I would recommend more vegan friendly options, but overall it was a great experience!!

Union and finch is always an outstanding place for any meal. Perfect for lunch, dinner, and even brunch. I’ve bragged about it to girlfriends and told them how amazing the brunch is. They were glad I told them about union and finch. They often say they need to tell everyone about this place. I love it here and I’m happy others do so.
