Very accommodating for someone who has a gluten and diary intolerance. Server was amazing and friendly and attentive and she was extremely busy! Loved it. Will always go back here!

I’m normally a meat eater but I tried the veggie burger on a friend’s recommendation and it did not disappoint! The smoky patty with avocados was delicious! Had a great time with coworkers but wished the music was a little bit softer. We found ourselves yelling across the table to hear each other.

Mother’s Day dinner was the occasion, so I made reservations so I could be sure we would have a seating because I expected it to be busier than usual. We arrived 15 minutes early but still had to wait 15 minutes past the reservation time. Reservations are never perfect, too many variables, but that is where the skill of being a host/hostess comes in and you can offer the patron the opportunity to purchase a drink or pre-look at the menu. This is just one more opportunity to make the experience more pleasant. Better luck next time, if there is one. Otherwise, food was great as always.

Really disappointing service tonight. Food took an hour to arrive. Our server seemed to be ignoring us after delivering our drinks as no refills or offers for new drink orders taken. I had an empty wine glass sitting there for close to an hour. When food finally arrived it was cold. Disappointing evening.

I’m very disappointed that even though I had advised them prior when making my reservation that it was my husband’s birthday, NO ONE acknowledged it at all. 🙁.
The restaurant was VERY noisy and the food wasn’t that great. The fries were greasy and limp, the chicken strips were very bland and the bow tie pasta wasn’t good either. Three out of our four meals were very bland. Our waitress was good but we probably will not return in future - especially when celebrating a special occasion.

Really great place. I was dining alone and the waitress was so nice to stop and chat with me. I had the Dragon Roll, which I thought what a strange item for a non sushi restaurant but it was really good! You can order it as a side inside of fries or a salad too. I know it's a chain, but it's a pretty solid place to eat

Ask for the daily specials .... they are always enticing and have a little twist. The wine choices are good. It is our go-to place whenever we are not sure where to go because we are never disappointed. Also, the kitchen is open late, so if you lost track of time and are hungry....this is the place.

Yet another wonderful evening at Union Social Eatery. Even though it was a full house, the hostess/servers/GM were attentive to the patrons and the food was outstanding. Our orders were taken in a reasonable amount of time and we did not wait long for our meals. The kids meals were cooked very well too. The avocado app is so fresh and well-balanced. Desserts were delicious! The staff were very accommodating of young kids, which is rare for a restaurant/bar establishment.

The service was friendly and attentive but the noise level was so high we ended up almost shouting at each other to be heard. This was a lunch meeting.
I would be careful about meeting there for lunch in the future.

I have to say I do find it a bit LOUD most of the time so makes it difficult to have conversation with the loud music. Would appreciate turning it down a notch! Thanks!

The service was friendly and attentive and the menu selections were more varied than similarly ranged restaurants. However while many patrons appeared to be there for informal business luncheons, including ourselves, the restaurant was extremely loud (sorry, energetic). Due to the poor acoustics, this is not a great a place for lunch meetings due to the background noise. Great though for an afternoon drink and bite to eat (I've been before) or casual dining at lunch / dinner.

Not many in the restuarant that night but our food still took forever.

- fish came extra late because apparently first batch was overdone

- sloppy construction of chicken sandwich. Overdone

- kids pasta wasn't very good or flavorful

- Poor desert

+ Friendly staff

Always reliably good food. Make a reservation or you'll wait a long time for a table because it's always packed. Love the candy salad - never had figs before this salad and now they're my favourite!

Would have liked to have seen more vegan selections on the menu. Perhaps a vegan whole food bowl. But, overall, salad was great and it seemed like a pleasant, well laid out place to eat.

Our waitress was amazing. She told us that our table was her 1st table for her first day. If she didn't tell us we would know, we thought she has been waited for a while. Excellent service and very attentive. This location is my husband favorite location, we will definitely go back and hope we can have the same server.

Union Social is a great restaurant for an informal meal with friends. Service is friendly but sometimes you need to hunt down your server to order more drinks. The lighting over the central tables is dim - maybe add a table light or candle - as reading the menu can be tricky. Candy House Salad is always good!

From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we were looked after very well. As a first time diner at Union Social we were offered a complementary appetizer by the manager in duty, which was delicious. Food was great! Caesar salad had a lot of garlic, but I'm not complaining. Overall we had a great time and will definitely be back!

The service was great, we were never left hanging. The food was great too, but I find it hard to give a perfect score for food - too subjective (I personally had Calamari only). I thought the lighting could be a little better.

Food was good. Our server didn’t once come back to check how we were doing once we got our meals, didn’t ask us if we needed anything (no refill on water, no extra napkins) & didn’t come back with the cheque until we waved her down.
