Due to covid, they actually only have outdoor seating and are not actively taking reservations on OpenTable. However, Michelle, gladly honoured my reservation and was extremely pleasant. I always enjoy the food and highly recommend the Social Punch.

Note that I had a call from Dan, the House Manager in question, telling me that he had recorded my phone number incorrectly and had left a message at the incorrect number. I appreciated his follow-up and apology so want to minimize any reaction to my original comments and criticism. I doubt most establishments would care enough to do this. Thanks, Dan!




I have been here a few times as it’s near family. Ambience/decor is forgettable. Food and service was fine with exception that they were out of chocolate milk which one of party ordered. Never really had a good IPA there which limits my interest in returning.

I happened to leave my COVID mask on the bench. Realized when I got home forty minutes later and phoned. Got the house manager and it was like pulling teeth to get him to wander the 20 steps over to where we were sitting and ask the new occupants to check. He might have done that but didn’t locate it. He took my phone number and said he would phone back in 20 minutes and also check after closing when the lights could be turned up. Still haven’t heard a peep from him and thankful it wasn’t something more valuable. His take on customer service seemed to be limited to the routine of appearing after our food was delivered and asking the cringing question, “How was your first bite?” and then thankfully disappearing. How do they train these people!


Union Social is off my list now - just too many alternatives that are better in a pandemic environment where all struggle to survive.

First let me say that we will go back again and give them one more try.
First time back after a long absence re: Covid. So very very disappointed! We have been faithful patrons since opening. So we were generous with our rating.
Raptors final game and out of Coors!
The first four wines we chose were not available.
The waitress, although very pleasant, did not know what bourbons were on the bar menu.
We usually order the salmon which is always delicious and one of the reasons we come back. Yes, you guessed it, not available!
Ordered the calamari appetizer, it was ok but not the usual perfection.
Ahi tuna was perfect but the choice of one salad dressing or oil and vinegar? Salad was ok but a bit limp.
The mushroom burg was somewhat dry.
The Manager, Jonathon? from S. Africa, dropped by and chatted. A pleasant man, hope he can get everything back on track.
Difficult times for all, especially the restaurant industry.

The food options are varied and there are gluten free options that are really great. I had the burger with mushrooms which was delicious. The serving size for adults and even children is pretty massive which means you will eat your fill without overpaying and even take some leftovers home. It was my husband birthday so they brought out soft cookies with vanilla ice cream and a candle. We sang and because it was loud, we didnt disturb anyone. I think this is now our go-to family resto!

Disappointed. I have never seen so much sugar in a menu. Almost everything had a sugar glaze, or sugar toppings, sweet, sweet, sweet. Veggies are glazed, special was tomato and peach soup. (?) I deliberately chose this venue to get away from "processed" chain restaurant food. Appetizers (nachos and smoked meat flatbread) were awkward to eat, very messy and "bland" tasting. Would have liked to try pulled pork or ribs, but according to menu description it would have been all sweet. Every accompanying sauce including mustards and chipotle were honeyed or sugared. From there I could only expect processed and sweet in the salmon, chicken etc. I had burger on a lettuce wrap. It was ok, but not much flavor, and i really don't know why. Price is average, not super expensive and so therefore I thought there would be more leaway in what they could offer. Place is popular, and I think for drinks and apps it also draws a crowd. Sadly I just couldn't navigate a healthy path through this menu. If the only alternative to healthy is a house salad hold the dressing and sugar toppings, then this place sadly fails. Wish I could have given a better review - the waitress who served us was excellent.

Thank you Martina for taking the time to write such a thorough review regarding your visit. I'm disappointed to read about your distaste with our menu, as we take so much pride in the quality of each and every single one of our dishes! I would love to invite you back for a meal and show you that virtually anything can be modified to suit your palate. We are so fortunate to have a kitchen full of food made completely from scratch, so please allow us to show it off! michelle@unionosocial.ca

I came here at the request of my daughter who was celebrating her birthday with family.
First issue: When I reserved I noted it was for a birthday. When the reservation was confirmed that birthday was acknowledged. When dessert time rolled around not only were we not offered a desert menu, I had to ask, But The worse part was her birthday never being acknowledged-I had to ask for the dessert and another table had happy birthday sang and acknowledged while hers wasn’t.
Second issue: your garlic Caesar salad was bitter and burned my mouth. Too much garlic. Our server seemed annoyed that I would ask to return the salad because it wasn’t palatable. I ended up having to eat something I really didn’t want as a result. As a matter of fact our server seemed unhappy and faked being pleasant and it was Obvious. I’ve been in the customer service industry for years, and this service was terrible. This wasn’t my first time there, and I’ve always had a great experience, but I don’t know if I’ll return to that location; but I’d like to suggest that you add more lighting for the evening as the lights are too dim for eating a meal.

Energetic is being kind about the level of noise in your eatery. It was extremely busy a full house according to the hostess. My dining companion and I had difficulty hearing each other throughout the entire meal.

It was so loud I was yelling at my friend and we were sitting at a small table for two! Food was okay nothing that blew me away but not horrible. My reservation wasn't available upon arrival but once accepting a table in the bar (which I didn't want) the original table became available luckily. Server was very knowledgeable.

This venue continues to impress us with Great Food and Superb Service.
As usual, we opted for Bar Seating and we were well looked after by Leslie (Our Server) and her Trainee (Rabbia); who were both laser focussed on Customer Satisfaction.

The Salmon and Steak, were fresh and done exactly to our liking (Blackened).

A great selection of Wines were perfectly paired with our food orders.
