Food and service were excellent. Place very noisy. Wrong choice for our visit with a friend but nice lunch. It’s the open concept that allows you to hear everyone’s conversations.

Food was beyond exceptional, just takes a while for your food to come. Very busy location.

Good location. Nice service. Many selections from drink menu unavailable. Avoid the steak and fries. Or substitute salad for fries. Steak tasty but fries very greasy. Reordered fries - they provided fresh ones but still greasy. They need to work on this. Other dishes were fine.

We reserved a table for four and requested the patio. We arrived and found multiple parties of two sitting on the patio at tables for four, with several tables for two empty. We were seated in the back of the restaurant and ordered our food which took almost an hour to arrive, despite the fact that the restaurant was only about a quarter full. The burger was way overdone and one of the appetizers never appeared. Not sure I’ll come back anytime soon.

It was closed! So no idea what it was like. Was upset to have booked and then show up with my party to find it closed. 🤨

Pleasantly surprised by how great the service and ambience was in this restaurant on Friday night. My only real criticism was that the music was a little too loud. But otherwise, fantastic eatery for dinner with family or friends. I will go back again.

Great place to watch sports and grab drinks if you’re in the area. Food is your typical gastropub/sports bar kind of menu but nothing to complain about. Recommend for big groups getting together for a meal to grab a booth or a casual workday date night

We were a party of four, and were running 15 minutes late. I was just about to call the restaurant, when they actually called me. I appreciated them for reaching out and not giving our table away as they were packed due to Raptor's game.

I made a reservation for 5:30 pm. Advised that the 5:30 time frame was not available. We opted for 5:15 but upon arriving at the restaurant, noticed that it was fairly empty and continued to be fairly empty until we left! ????

We love this place. This time we had dinner feature, and veggie burger (so delicious) with candy house salad (my favorite). Beer was great, they always have a special offer for each night of the week.
Staff is always nice! Reasonable price. Noise was a little too much but it was Friday night, and the vibe compensated it!

Great time as always at union. The only thing was the hosts said she didn't have our rezos as they were experiencing connection issues luckily they had space on this very busy night

Way too loud to have a conversation. Service was friendly but much too slow and infrequent. Food was pretty good and would return to try again just not during the after work crowd.

We have been going to Union for almost 4 years and we were never disappointed. This time, beef with cajun shrimp and mushrooms, green beans and vegetables, the so called “Dinner feature”, was really something!!

Higher points: amazing dishes for a reasonable price; pleasant and knowledgeable staff 100% of our visits!!

We definitely recommend this place!!

Very nice ambiance for a Sunday lunch. Good food and the service was great, friendly and very efficient but we never felt rushed. They also make a great Caesar!

Definitely a good value -- the drinks were less than most other places I've been in Toronto and pretty good. The service was slightly slow especially considering it was a Monday evening and not too busy. Overall, a good place to go if you're looking for something casual and not too expensive.

The service was good, the food was ok and it was really loud in there, so it’s good for people that don’t mind the loudness. The sushi was surprisingly good.

Great service and food. Staff are awesome. They knew we were on a date and brought out a complimentary appetizer. Really nice gesture. Prices are very decent by Toronto standards. Daily drink specials too!

It was my second visit to the restaurant. We were at a booth in the back of the restaurant. It was dark with inadequate lighting. It felt like we weren’t part of the beautifully decorated restaurant. The booths were definitely an after thought and lack the charm of the rest of the restaurant.
When our meals were ready a drink was spilt when placing the plate across. There was a very poor effort to clean up the liquid which quickly spread to most of the place settings. A roll of paper towel was left on the table for us to clean it up. Really!!! That was very poorly done.

went there in the summer, food and service was great, would never go back again as the service coupled with not so great food was a huge disappointment. I would not recommend it as there as much better restaurants
