    We enjoyed our meal so much that we returned the following day. The chicken tacos, the burgers, and the club sandwich were great meals.

    As a family with 2 young kids and a baby it is hard to venture out to a restaurant that provides a kids menu along side an amazing meal for adults that doesn't replicate swiss chalet. With a great date night atmosphere yet family friendly service we are happy to know that there is a place that parents can feel at ease bringing their kids and still get a fine dining quality meal. And at a great price no less thanks to their moderately priced yet flavourful menu. Our bill came out to $80 including the tip and we ordered an appetizer to share, our entrees (and of course 2 kids meals) and a beer for the hubby :) highly recommended and we visit every chance we get.

    Seemed like mere minutes and the food arrived at the table. Piping fresh, appealing to the eye and not exactly to order. I wanted no "sprouts" on my burger and while carrying out the food, Johnathan realized he did not order it that way. Said he could "go to the back and pick off the sprouts" and then return to me? HUH? Bewildered, I accepted the burger as is and bit into it. WOW. Probably the best veggie burger I've had. The fixings of avocado, tomato, lettuce, onion, sauce, etc....flavour exploded in my mouth. Fries? eh, not terrific, much thinner then I expected. Spouse very much enjoyed the shrimp pad thai, said "he would get it again" which is somewhat unusual for him. Dad devoured the chicken wings and fries.

    My husband enjoyed his spinach salad with grilled salmon, which was cooked perfectly. My burger was delicious. My only suggestion would be to offer toppings separately. I had the basic burger but opted for the toppings that come with the veggie burger, for an additional charge. I find the atmosphere here a bit dismal in the dining room ( a Monday evening) and the pictures of "regular people having a good time" on the wall a strange choice of decor. I'm not sure what the target clientele is but the bar seems to be popular. The music emanating from the bar area makes the dining room feel like an afterthought--strange because the food is good. A little more thought should be given to the dining room ambience. Great service!

    We tried Union in Mississauga when it first opened and given it had a few newness kinks, recalled that we should give it another try. We did so this mind-sept weekend and were underwhelmed. Service was alright, lacking a bit of sincerity and more "this is how I'm trained" approach. Tuna slider appetizers were good and burger OK. Foes were cold and over-salted. Fish & chips were bad. Chips cold fish over-battered, undercooked and again cold. Guess it wasn't opening jitters....

    We have been coming to this place regularly over the past few years since our friends recommended it to us. We love the food, and the service is almost always friendly and prompt. We noticed the other night that our meals were served in smaller sized plates and bowls. My wife's pad thai bowl looked to be about 25% smaller than previous, and my side salad to my burger was also in a much smaller bowl. I know food and labour are a restaurant's two biggest expenses and I guess shrinking the portions rather than raising prices, may be an easier way not to upset your customers. r This place is still the best casual chic restaurant in the GTA

    Food was Ok. Not saying I wouldn't go back but it definately would not be my first choice due to the service I received. My steak sandwich was a little on the dry side (overcooked) so I asked for a side of some type of au jus or sauce for it. Waitresses first reply was it would be an extra $3 - wow - you overcook my food and instead of sending it back I ask for a sauce and then tell me it will cost me to fix your cooks mistake - I didn't think this was very good customer service. This was a turn off for me and the co-worker I met there.

    Dined on 9/26/2014
    It was our first time there and we had reservations. We were there 5 minutes early and still had to wait 15 minutes. I really wasn't happy about that, I mean why book online to stand up and wait and be told "Just 2 more minutes guys" a few times. Once sat down we had the pleasure of having Jeanette (Not sure off spelling) and she was AMAZING. Amazing to the point I had a Manager come over and talk to us as I had to tell him about our experience. Had Jeanette not been outstanding I would have never came back. I thought she was great . . . beyond great. As customers we don't think twice to complain because we always have time to complain but we rarely find the time to say how well someone has done, and we need to do more of that.
