    Lovely place. Food was good quality, although most dishes are designed to be shared. So as a result there are not many options for couples with differnt paletts. Now the service was terrible. For some reason we had two? One was lovely and informative. The other however was rude and condersending. Didn't ask how I wanted my steak cook and when I chased her down to tell her, I don't belive she informed the kitchen due to my steak being undercooked. Very strange experience from her for other items as well. Probably should have said something but didn't want to ruin or evening.

    Union Bank is my favourite restaurant in Orange, and I adore dining alfresco, weather permitting, or inside restaurant. Ambience is lovely. Staff are very pleasant and understand the delicious menu, which changes regularly. The extensive beverage menu caters for everyone.

    We fancied lunch so we caught the train from Katoomba. We had the feed me option with wines. One of the reds was a bit too young, but it didn't matter. Good food, good service.

    Very flavourful food. Great for sharing but might be difficult to have your 'own' meal for those not keen to share. The two starters - kingfish and octopus were delicious. The whole chicken very tender, the sirloin not as tender as hoped. The salad and seeds delicious. Nice bottle of Patina pinot noir. Very pleasant wait staff.

    It was 34 degrees when we visited and we were advised that the indoor dining hall was closed and all guests must be seated under the sun. No fan no nothing for guests to enjoy. We were all soaked after lunch. Waitress was inattentive and took ages for the food to arrive. Food was okay but obviously the standard has been declining for a fair bit. They have changed the combination however the old menu back in march 2023 was simply way better than the one in Jan 2024. I hope the management can improve the standard so that I can recommend it to friends, but as per my recent visit- I’d take it off the list.

    Excellent food and service. We chose to eat indoors as we were not certain of the weather when we booked. Quiet, table by the window. Service staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered from the snacks and entree menu as the choices were so different. The plates are meant to be shared. We even fitted dessert in, which again were excellently executed. Wine and drinks list is extensive and not over priced. Overall excellent meal, well worth the trip!

    We saw this restaurant on an episode of Sydney Weekender recently so wanted to check it out while we were visiting. Every single dish was amazing and it’s too difficult to pick a favourite. We had the ciabatta, we shared a jalapeño croquet, the kingfish with cherry and basil, the beef tartare with corn, hot sauce and fried bread, prawn with chickpea and harissa and the bone marrow ‘cheeseburger’. We really didn’t need dessert but ended up sharing a chocolate mille feuille with frangelico cream and hazelnut. It was delicious and beautifully presented. The indoor section where we sat was full but the staff still managed to get meals and drinks out in a timely manner and all were lovely and provided great service. The ambience of both the indoor and outdoor settings was beautiful and felt welcoming. Overall, an outstanding dining experience.
