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.

I have been here for dinner several times but first time today for brunch as I normally work Sundays. It was awesome. Reservations highly suggested.
Service, food, drinks and music were also top notch. The menu for brunch offered more choices than their regular menu.
Very friendly owner and staff.

We had a great experience at Union and Finch! We had a group of eight and our reservation was ready right away. Good food and great brunch specials on the weekend. Only slightly bothersome thing was that our waitress kept bringing us our check without asking if we wanted anything else, when we did and she kept bringing over the new one after we ordered. Otherwise, I recommend !

Waited a little too long for food. It was wing night and I feel like they should have come out a bit faster than the did. Sweet potatoes fries were not hot.

These folks are doing it right! The food is delicious, the atmosphere is lovely and the service is always excellent. My only complaint is that they haven't opened a location in Bethlehem for my selfish needs.

Went there this past Sunday for Brunch. I usually order the Union Omelette, but I decided to try the Falafel cakes (only on the brunch menu as far as I can tell). Delicious! Really one of the best falafel's I've ever had. Served with Chorizo Sausage and potatoes. Great meal! Server Nick, was personable and good at his job.

Food and service is excellent! I LOVE their pickle jar! The only thing I can (barely) criticize is the noise level. The acoustics are poor, even on a night when it’s not very crowded. The good news is you’re enjoying the food so much, there’s no time to talk.

What a surprise gem! This restaurant could be in NYC, Philly or LA. Every detail thought of regarding the decor. Top notch food quality and best variety of brunch menu offering I’m seen in years. I work with chefs and am in the private dining club business. This little gem is a real find. We will return! If it was near me in Delaware I’d be a regular but we were visiting family.

Really enjoyed our meal here. The wedge salad and poutine were simply amazing. White bean hummus was a little bland, but the vegetables and pita served with it were fresh and tasty. Kinda wish there was more than one dessert option, even if it's something simple. The slice of Boston Cream Pie isn't really my thing, and it was massive.

Great food, great service. This was a really fun place to eat. Everyone from families with kids to groups of young adults to older couples all enjoying themselves and having a nice meal. The food was interesting and delicious. We were in Allentown for DCI and just stumbled upon this restaurant. I’d totally recommend it for all you drum corps fans!! Walking distance to JB Crum!!

This was my second visit. The first was for wine and appetizers. We had cheese curds and the Reuben egg roll. Both were delicious. The next visit was for brunch where I had the savory crepes stuffed with ham, cheese, and spinach, served with a bechemel sauce and fingerling potatoes. Loved! So fabulous! Try this restaurant, you won’t regret it.

We’ve been going here for years, and without fail, every single time the owner stops by and makes it a point to have a conversation with us. The food is delicious, people are super friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

I love Union & Finch. But, the noise level in the large, back room is really bad. I wish they would do something to make this better. I’m sure there’s a fix for it. We couldn’t hold conversations and were yelling to be heard.
Great food, great service. Noise level-tough.

A first time visit here - definitely worth a return trip (or twelve). Food was great, beer selection on tap was varied and outstanding, and our server (Alphie) was attentive without being overbearing. We sat on the restaurant side, and were aware of the band on the bar side, but the sound level was great, could carry on a convo on either side without being drowned out. REALLY loved the ambience. This is a gem!

I Highly recommend Union and Finch!

Beautiful new gastropub that caters to vegans, vegetarians, and gluten sensitive. The ambiance was wonderful and the staff, as well as the owner were very friendly and knowledgeable about the food they served and the history of the area. They had a bountiful craft beer selection along with house infused spirits and top shelf bourbons. The menu was a fusion of New American and French Nouvelle. The food melted in your mouth and the flavors were top notch. Above all, the prices would not break the bank and I would recommend this establishment to anyone.
