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.

Excellent service, atmosphere and food. Yummy fish and chips. The pork chop special was tasty with maple infused mashed potatoes. Have enjoyed many meals at this restaurant and will continue to go back.

We have been here many times and are never disappointed. Food quality and service are great. Had the fish and chips and was good.
Note I forgot my glasses there and they were kind enough to notice and put them away for me to pickup.

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.

Food was great, service was great...only negative was it was too loud (in the restaurant section even!) too have a proper conversation with our group of 5 ladies. Music could be lower and something to absorb the noise is needed!

The staff were extremely welcoming and pleasant. They made it a great experience. The food was good. I would definitely reccomend the club sandwich. It was a lot better than the salmon burger I had a week ago. The ambience is great but I sometimes had trouble hearing the people I was with. (and there were only four of us)

Great lunch - West Coast Veggie Burger - great service. No mixed drinks ordered this time so no comment on these. As always, the 'Energetic' rating on the OpenTable noise scale doesn't really cover just how incredibly loud it is in this establishment.

The restaurant was filthy, the waiter was not attentive at all. Giant holes in the booths fabric that collected food no one cared to clean or have fixed.
Had to constantly flag Down the waiter to order additional rounds, appetizers and finally lunch. Was there for a business lunch with two people spent over $200 and would not go back. Food was sub par and average as best.
