While I realize this is an old building, the restaurant is a bit tired. With that being said, the service was very good and the food was plentiful and pretty decent.

We stopped here for a drink and dessert. We sat inside in the bar and ordered. Service was good and the Spanish coffee and chocolate cake were both yummy! Will try dinner next time!

Have been here twice for the live jazz and will be going back again this month as well as every month for the great food and music.

I can only tell you about the service here because I never got a chance to order. Walked in on a Wednesday evening. Bartender told me he would be right back. Waited 10 minutes and never saw anyone again. So I left.

We have enjoyed several brunches and appetizers here. Dinner only once. Years ago they did live bands and dancing; I'm not sure if they still do, but it was a lot of fun.

Had a delicious lunch, wine (generous pour) and dessert. Outside seating was very nice. The inside ambiance is lovely. Prices compare reasonably with other restaurants. You can order a grilled chicken sandwich with fries and a salad for $9.00! Was quite surprised that there were not more diners for lunch. Service was friendly and good.

Any day of the week the food at the Union Hotel is great. Gabby and his staff never disappoint! The eggplant Parmesan is a favorite, along with the house made ravioli. The salmon is also a winner! A special treat is the jazz band on Thursday nights!

Benicia’s Union Hotel Restaurant & Bar offers excellent food and service in a place that’s just loaded with personality. The historic decor and friendly vibe of this compact eatery/bar are very appealing, and the old fashioned bar and gorgeous stained glass windows are highlight features. My seafood linguini ($20), which was prepared with clams, mussels, prawns, calamari and scallops, and... More
