    Good food - we thought the vegetarian selection was limited, but the waitress told us that they have a vegetarian menu AFTER our meal was over, which was a bit disappointing. Reasonably priced and friendly service.

    Made reservations and asked for a good table for a romantic night out with my wife. Sat us beside the huge tv with a hockey game playing. Not very romantic. Had to flag down a server after waiting 10 minutes no one asked if we wanted water, drinks, anything. Asked the server if we could sit in a booth away from the noise and lights. They said no and reluctantly Sat us at another table after insisting we move. Table was wobbly no human eating a proper meal could eat on it asked to move again and the Manager allowed us to sit on a booth when we asked to sit at one originally. I knew this place was more a patio/pub like place but seeing as they had Valentine's Day experience menu I figured they'd at least have a section geared more towards quiet dining. Food was actually good but terrible service ruined the experience

    This was my first time at Union Social and I had minimal expectations walking in. When we arrived the restaurant was empty, but very soon it filled up. We placed our order and it took an extremely long time to arrive. Our server was apologetic, and we were patient, and at last the food arrived. While we were eating, we were approached by a Manager who came to check in on us and again apologize for the wait. And in fact, before we even had a chance to say anything (I didn't even plan to complain), he made a kind and generous offer to make up for the poor kitchen service. I was very appreciative and took him up on this offer. Although my initial impression wasn't great, he definitely made up for it and I will return for another visit to this location!

    Table service was excellent. Food service was slow due to another private function. They were apologetic but added on about an hour and a half to our meal. We were with small kids. If it were only adults I would have minded so much.

    Very hard to hear the quiet server, and a few payment mistakes were made. Took a long time to get to ordering food and for food to come. It's a decent place for friends when you want options for many different preferences though.

    While the noise level was decent. We were the only ones in the restaurant and it was impossible to get the attention of our server. As well, we had to ask many times for more water and even when she came to table with a pitcher of water and our glasses were empty, we will had to ask for water. As well, in order to get the server's attention we had to wave many times to get her attention.

    The food & service was very good Although they came back twice as they were out of white wines that are considered staples They seated us at the front by the window and bar was behind us , about 1/2 hr into our time a few rather noisy & obnoxious patrons were so loud we could not hear our conversations We spoke to the server & hostess who replied they are regulars and spend a lot on alcohol -sorry what sort of response was that , we know it’s a lively place we frequent once a month , but never again

    Just not very good. The whole place needs a power wash. The fabric in the booth was fully ripped open. The menus were covered in filth. That table was sticky. The bathrooms were gross. Food was decent but I wouldn’t return just because the place is not nice to exist in. The st Clair location is miles better. Management is sleeping uptown…

    Beer glass wasn't properly rinsed, so the beer tasted like soap. Had to send it back. Ordered avocado spread and tortilla chips off the gluten-sensitive menu, but brought the regular so it was tortilla chips and pita - pita is NOT gluten-free. Seoul steak bowl rice was completely cold but the cold slaw was warm. The almond milk for the coffee was clearly bad, had lumps in it. Didn't bother complaining about anything except the beer, as it was too much for our new waitress to manage.

    I brought my team work here for a summer social gathering. The food was disappointing. I ordered the Steak Frites and the meat was tough & dry even though it was cooked to medium-rare. A couple of people tried the Seoul Steak Bowl which had similar quality, the meat was tough. Perhaps their typical pub foods may have been a better choice, such as a burger or the fish & chips. The service was just average, the server we had was nice but seemed to disappear for long periods of time. The kitchen was willing to make an accommodate a food substitution for one person in our party which was great! For a Friday night, it restaurant wasn't very full and there were plenty of empty tables. Prices were reasonable for the portions we received.

    Contrary to all the negative reviews I’d read, the service was excellent. Our server was friendly and kept checking to make sure we all were happy. The food was good but not anything that I would rave about. The only negative was the noise level. We were a table of 6 and we booked a table for 8pm when it was not busy. We had to raise our voices to have a conversation and that was frustrating as we were a group of friends meeting up for the first time in ages and had lots to talk about.

    I went to grab drinks with a friend, we wanted to sit on the patio- they said it was closed due to wind tunnel so we sat inside no problem at all. I think they were just under staffed! Our server took forever to come over to notice us. When she came over we ordered food and drinks… When our food was delivered my friend was in the bathroom! The food runner said “ is this all for you” I thought that was kinda rude! I could order the whole menu if I wanted what does it matter! I’ve been here many times. I was just shocked with my whole dinning experience
