Excellent Friday night experience at U especially the Steak Frites (with truffle oil on the fries), Duck Confit and wedge salad. And we had the most attentive and friendly server, Leslie. Great band too! We'll definitely be back. Would recommend this highly.

Union and Finch is our go to restaurant for Sunday brunch. This time I tried something different (usually get the Union Omlette) but this time I ordered falafel cakes served with 2 sunny side up eggs. I don't see it on the on-line menu, so maybe a new item. Anyway, very good.

Fantastic Saturday brunch. Friendly wait staff and great coffee... would be nice if larger mugs were available upon request, but that’s about the only thing I’d recommend changing. Neighborhood gem!

Amazing, amazing experience from the service to the food to the ambience. Mussels were amazing. The curds and fried okra were spot on. My wife’s duck was fantastic. Visit this restaurant as it’s spot on! Highly recommend.

This was a diappointing experience. One of the entrees,the Mussels had to be sent back they were slmy and mushy, The rest of the food was ok. The waitress and Manager we're great in taking back the Mussels and having another order prepared, the 2nd order was not good, very diappointing.
This place is very minimilstic in decor, Did not like sitting on a wood bench. Do not recommend this place.

Hi Helen - thanks for the feedback. Can you let us know what other entree you had and what you disliked about it? Also, what did you dislike about the 2nd order of mussels, as when we asked we got the impression it was good from your feedback? What were you looking for in terms of the decor? All feedback is appreciated. Thanks.

A friend and I met for Sunday brunch. I ordered the Huevos Rancheros and she ordered the Shakshuka. The Rancheros lacked flavor but the Shakshuka was full of lots of spices and was delicious. I will be back to U&F but will definitely try something else next time.

Bonus was the mimosa flight my friend ordered.

The Poutine, Duck Breast, and their burger of the week were all excellent, the Mac & Cheese appetizer was a little under
seasoned but even then it was not bad. Service was excellent and so was the ambiance. Location leaves a little to be desired but overall fantastic.

The chicken and waffles was one of the best dishes I’ve ever eaten. The chicken, especially, was superb!

It could have been an excellent dining experience, but...it was loud. So very loud. We had a party of seven and sat in the upstairs area. We could barely hold a conversation. Our server was just fine, but it is a huge pet peeve of mine when the table is cleared while we are still eating and drinking, and worse? It was the manager, and she repeatedly reached across our table to take glasses and condiments.

I'm new to the area, but this was my 4th visit to Union and Finch in the last few months! The food is delicious--and I'm vegan, so it is often a challenge to find great food when dining out. Love, LOVE the falafel burger and vegetable meatloaf!! The beer selection is great! Staff is awesome, and I just love the vibe. I've been when it's quiet and when it's energetic--you can't go wrong here.

Once again, a terrific brunch at U & F. Would recommend trying to improve the acoustics. Way too noisy every time. Each table is competing to be heard. It's really the only negative aspect. This place is a local gem!
