    Our first visit made quite an impression. The service was great and staff very friendly. But the best part was the food! Fabulous!! I had the swordfish burger and it was so good, that I will have difficulty not choosing it the next time we visit, even though there are so many items that I would love to try. My husband had the steak and gorgonzola flatbread and said it was great. The portions are decent too. My only issue, is that it's quite noisy, but we will be returning customers :-)

    The food is original and fresh which is great considering the various food options that are available to choose from within the plaza. I can honestly say that our experience there was a memorable one. So far I have tried the "Pulled Pork Sandwich with Golden Yukon Fries", "Fresh Baked Chocolate Chunk Cookies with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream" and I have also tried the "Triple 'S' Steak Sandwich". Everyone was really good, from the flavour to portion size and price. I will definitely return on a regular basis and continue to recommend Union Social Eatery to everyone.... i.e. co-workers and friends.

    This is my new favorite restaurant. The service is friendly & attentive. The atmosphere is friendly and open with both booth & table seating. The lighting is intimate, but bright enough to see your menu and your food. The food is presented well, the pricing is excellent for the portion sizes & the flavours...truffle oil, pommery mustard...steak & fresh seafood YUM!

    This is a great little gem. From the start, the welcome and service was excellent and the food was amazing. They make as much as they can in-house and fresh and do not freeze anything unless absolutely necessary; you can tell because that translates into some great tasting food. With prices for great food up to $20 and a great bar selection, you can't go wrong. Union Social reminds me a of Moxies style atmosphere with a downtown Toronto vibe, will definitely be back.

    Fit for (not overly sophisticated) foodies. Very reasonably priced which I think will help keep the crowd on the younger side. That almost brings up the "good" rating into "very good", but not quite.

I have never been dissatisfied with the food nor my experience. The special features as well are amazing, especially the one they had on for a Valentines Day promotion. I will come back to Union Social Eatery again and again.

  • What Mississauga was missing
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/4/2012
    Hidden gem. Nothing about where this restaurant is located would suggest great food, ambience and service but here we are! Totally unassuming, but the interior is decorated like nothing else in the suburbs - relying on raw materials and great mood lighting - polished finishings yet deconstructed? It's great for a group, family or couple. The food portions were generous without waging into American-sized portions. The trick here is that the menu items are all fairly common, yet the ingredients are where Union Social exceeds. Truffle fries? Yes, please! This could become a fast favourite. Go now before it gets too popular.

    We were first time visitors and were very pleasantly surprised with the entire experience. Service was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and very hospitable. The food was of very high quality, which was quite a feat with the very reasonable price point. We were told everything is made inhouse from scratch which became very evident with every course. We would definitely return again. Great Job!!!

    The food was not very good here. They have a new menu and I don't think they have perfected it yet. Also the server charged us twice on the same bill. Some other random server kept coming around to pour the Perier in our glasses. I thought this was strange because she never introduced herself. Also, she kept reaching over our food while we were eating to clear empty glasses and plates without saying excuse me. A very odd place. Not worth visint in my opinion. You're better off going to Boston Pizza in the same plaza. I was quite dissapointed.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    Recommended by colleague to try this restaurant. 3 of us went - 2 of us tried the special - sliced beef brisket made to order on a bun w/fries. Can't believe it was made to order. Sliced thin, dry and had no taste. Tons of fat on it - had to pull off the pieces and trim before eating them. Fries tasted good but were tiny small pieces - almost difficult to eat because they were so small. other person ordered the pad thai. It looked terrible. noodles stuck together in huge clumps and the person had to cut it with a knife and fork. Wait staff never returned to provide any refills. Strange set-up: booths "floating" in the middle of the floor. Ours backed right onto the main lobby. People waiting would lean on your seats. Not good!

    We have been to Union Social at least once a week since it opened, the burgers are amazing, the service friendly and fast, very reasonably priced. We have recommended it to all our friends who have also become regular customers. A great new restaurant in an area of Mississauga that was screaming for something other than fast food.

    As customers, we have to remember that mistakes do happen, but I am always more concerned about the action taken to rectify a problem, and although my food wasn't quite what I was expecting, it was very quickly and politely put right by the staff at Union Social. The service was outstanding and we are happy to have a new place to eat close to home.

    18 thumbs up from our party of 9 for the great food (freshly made but quickly served); for the staff who were in tune to our needs and quick to replenish as we needed, but very subtly; and to the comfortable seating providing a sense of coziness even though it is a large restaurant. Looking forward to many more visits.

    Enjoyed our meals although I think that the stir-fry portions could have been a little bigger. Burger was cooked to perfection; fries a little soggy. Went for my son's birthday and mentioned that to the waitress upon our arrival, yet nothing was offered to the birthday boy i.e. dessert. Most places offer that for special occasions. All in all, a good experience.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 12/14/2011
    Located in the old Shopsy's spot, the restaurant is nicely renovated but still not much ambience in this plaza location. Service is very friendly and the appetizers were excellent - Squash Soup and Artichoke Dip both winners. Main courses were not as successful - our server made a point of telling us how everything is fresh, local and homemade so our expectations were high. Unfortunately the pasta in the Agnolotti was rather dense and the heavy sauce was too much with the spinach and feta stuffing. The special - Pickerel sounded fantastic but the plating was very ordinary and the flavours nothing special - could have used a touch of herbs and salt. Side vegetables were extra - green beans and cherry tomatoes cooked very nicely.

    Urban Social Eatery was just what it said it would be...good food, good prices,good service. Actually the service was great (thanks Igor). Pad Thai for my wife was spicy and enjoyable. I was a skeptic on the Kobe steak for under $20, but in the end the beef was very tender and tasty! There were a few families with young kids around, but that can be expected with these price points...perhaps a later meal 8PM+ would be better if folks wanted a bit more ambience. Urban is brand new...they've got some good things going for them.
