I've passed 240 Union several times since moving to the area and had been interested in trying it since I moved to the area. My boyfriend and I seldom eat out but I wanted to celebrate a recent promotion. The food was impeccable. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals and the atmosphere. The service however, was extremely disappointing. The drink that I ordered was entirely too strong and I ended up letting most of it go to waste. I understand that from the point of view of a waiter a couple of twenty-somethings may not tip well however, that shouldn't have an impact on how they are treated. I don't remember getting his name, but if he did give it we didn't see him enough to make it stick. All in all it was an okay dinner. The people around us seemed to have a good time. We will most likely not return for a second visit.
Date night: Sat. Oct 5th, 6 p.m. reservation. First impression, great restaurant makeover very nice atmosphere, hostess was very professional, groomed well and upbeat. Waiter was also well groomed and friendly.
Dinner started with calamari, tempura was cooked perfectly and the sauce tasted very familiar and then I realized I had some at home. Roasted pineapple and habanero sauce purchased at Costco. I wanted to order outside my comfort zone, hence D lobster tail, beautiful presentation, green beans and mashed potatoes were great, my poor lobster covered in so much panko crust got lost.:( On the upside my husbands swordfish was wonderful as was the crème brulee.
This was the first visit back in many years and we will return two more times.

This used to be one of my favorite restaurants because they always used to use quality ingredients and had creative menus. Not so anymore. They are now using premade, disgusting sauces and the taste and quality has gone way downhill. It is now not even the level of Macaroni Grill (another place that now uses premade, canned sauces). Very disappointing and I will not be returning.

I agree with an earlier review. 240 Union prices and quality do not match up. The last several dining experiences have brought brown lettuce, flavors in various dishes not working together, flavors in dishes that just are not the quality of other restaurants in this same price category. I don't begrudge their prices when the quality of food is equal. Excellent service, lovely restaurant, food needs much improvement. I'm not writing this review to give them bad press. I'm hoping their management reads this review, and brings back the quality of food the restaurant offered a couple years ago. I have also noticed that other restaurants in this same price range are still filled on the weekends whereas 240 Union no longer is. That's not just the economy speaking.

This restaurant was ok, but certainly not what I would expect given the prices on their menu. It took our waiter over 10 minutes to arrive at the table for our drink order- never a good start. The food was good, but bland, and for the price, I could have gotten just as good, or a better pasta dish at a chain restaurant. Thank goodness my husband and I had a promotional coupon for one free entree. My husband's pork was okay, but bland as bland can get- have they not heard of fresh herbs?
My salad was obviously out of a Fresh Express bag, and was not worth $8- the leaves were turning brown on the edges.
The busboy was so surly he could have curdled milk.
All in all, we were disappointed in the food, and don't feel it was worth the price. Won't return.

First visit to 240 Union and even though it's a bit out of the way for us, we'll return. Our party tried the sizzling shrimp, linguini, grilled scallops, the pistachio-encrusted pork chop and the nightly special, which was walleye. A few of us being mid-westerners, when we see walleye, we fight to see who gets to order it. All breads, appetizers, wines and dinners were great. The wine list, although not huge in the by the glass options, still has a couple of nice finds. Try a little Semillon with dessert. In fact, the after dinner menu has something for everybody. If I had any complaints, it was the length of time, between sitting down and getting the water and/or drink order. You don't want to be rushed but at the same time, you do want somebody to notice you. It's a fine line that was strained a couple of times during the evening, not bad but the line was crossed. Nothing to keep us from coming back though.

We have been customers for years, and we have been very happy with the wine list, service, and food. We think that 240 is a good value for the price, and we recommend dining here.
We have always been happy with our food. We have tried most items on the menu.

Had dinner with son and daughter in law. Sunday evening at @ 8:00 pm before New Years. Place was half filled. Waiter was very friendly and engaging. Drinks were well executed and the menu looked good. The seafood and calamari were excellent, the pasta very good. Desserts were OK. Wine list was good with fair prices. I could go here 5 times a year and always be happy. Highly recommended for good dining at reasonable prices and fine service.
