    Wide variety of food, all deliciously prepared. We were a table of four, everyone had something different, and everyone was super happy with their meals. But as good as the food was, the service was even better! The pacing was perfect, and our server, Alex, was outstanding!

    We celebrated our daughter’s 30th birthday with family. Alex, our waitress, was very good. She knew the menu and portions when we had specific questions. We had our 17-month granddaughter with us & they were very accommodating with us. Our food was delicious!

    So, the 20 dollar burger. Don’t keep wondering. Worth every penny. Had lesser burgers for 50% more. The steak frites was flawless. That arugula salad was outstanding. Really. It was this dish I drove an hour for. Seriously. The au poivre was a tad heavy handed and a tad thick but never you mind - that’s like taking points off a flawless gymnastics program. It’s so marginal as to not matter. A fruity dessert would be nice. I’d like to encounter that on my next trip. I will be going back to Union & Finch

    Solid menu, yummy food, house cocktails, takes reservations but also bar seating. Ordered: House Signature Drink: Dirty Pickle Appetizer: Poutine Entree: Tandoori Chicken The cocktail wasn’t my style but it was recommended so I gave it a try. The poutine featured goat cheese in addition to the cheese curds which I loved. The chicken entree was so flavorful. Factors for my rating: They have a 10 min grace period for any reservations. I was on time for my reservation but then had to wait an additional 15 mins for my table to be ready (Party of 1 only) Upon being seated, I wasn’t offered water or approached for at least another 5 minutes. Once I had ordered a cocktail and appetizer, which I even received, I still hadn’t received water until I requested it. The appetizer portion was larger than the dinner entree portion. I loved that there was plenty of Poutine to share but I would have enjoyed that portion be reflected on my entree as well. Even another piece of naan bread with the chicken would have been more fitting. It’s a great date spot, especially for cocktails and apps. The prices are a bit high for a larger family meal. No dress code. There was seating for a larger group as well but would definitely recommend reservations if even with one, you’ll have to wait another 15-20 mins to be seated.

    I ordered the salmon and it was way overcooked. II felt it was overpriced for the small portions of food. It is more of a beer joint, they have lots of beer to try and my friends were happy with the beer choices.

    I heard good things, and it was one of few restaurants open on a Sunday in that area, but the experience was underwhelming. We were seated quickly, even though we arrived early for our reservation. Our server was polite, and took our drink order quickly, but we sat waiting for 30 mins before we had so much as a glass of water. Orders were taken for parties that arrived after we did, before our own. The cocktails were pathetic. My husband was initially given the wrong drink, and upon it being “fixed”, he felt the top shelf bourbon he requested wasn’t even used. The food was decent, but my husband requested a different cheese on his burger, but still received what was on the menu. When made aware, the server apologized, but gave the “understaffed” excuse. Also, while I realize it is more of a “casual dining” restaurant, most of the staff were dressed like they were going to the gym, rather than working. Street parking was awful, and even though they had a parking lot, the spots were very tight. I had to squeeze in and out of my car, and had to back out of the space, because my husband couldn’t even get in because of the colossal truck that parked next to us. I doubt we will be back.

    The menu looked good and the atmosphere was nice but the food unfortunately didn’t match. No one in my party ate much of their food. I got the fish tacos (seared ahi tuna) and the tuna was over cooked and chewy, topped with seaweed salad and mayonnaise which I thought was strange. The basmati rice that came with it was crunchy in spots and very bland.
