Union Social Eatery - Sheppard
Came for a girls dinner. We had a good time, but the drinks were mediocre. The food was good, but what made the outing great, was the the service.
Casual, but good food. Server Kayla was so friendly at the table, but useless in remembering anything. She would state “I’ll be right over with x” and never show. When she returned she would again promise the item and not bring it. She tried.
Mixed green salad had romaine lettuce, not mixed greens. Bacon in the sandwich was pure fat.
Love Union Social. Alyse was our server. Very friendly, very timely, very attentive and accurate with her service.
Esther, the manager, runs a great restaurant. She joins her staff on the floor and pitches in with her team.
I will continue to go back
Service was good. Disappointed with the nachos. They were completely soggy underneath and were REALLY lean with the cheese and ground beef (which we added at our server's recommendation). Will not be ordering that again.
Otherwise, everything else was good.
Great burgers. Server was very friendly and knew the menu details.
Very average - patio is ok - food average.
Our server was amazing. Great management on board. We had moved from the patio as it was too loud being beside the DJ.
Great atmosphere, especially up on the patio. Only suggestion might be to make sure water and drinks are served with ice when it's so hot up on the patio. Refreshingly cold drinks always make you feel cooler.
Excellent food and service. The staff clearly enjoy where they work and what they do!
Great food, friendly service, cool atmosphere. Server saw us socializing and didn't push us out by rushing coffee or check (refilled waters multiple times).
Always a fun time at Union Social Eatery. Great burgers, reliable coconut chicken, good drink selection. Fun crowd, a bit noisy some nights. You can watch the game or not, depending on your preference. Reliable neighbourhood diner.
Great convenient location. Service was fast, friendly and efficient and smart. This was a business lunch and the server did a great job with timing of service 'interruptions'.
The kitchen was on point as always.
Union Social is our Go-to place! From the minute you walk through their doors, they are always welcoming, which in today's world, is very very rare. To be greeted with a smile, and a genuine interest in making your time there the best it can be, is just such a wonderful feeling.
The ambiance on the roof top terrace is just wonderful. Lovely servers that are by your table often asking if you need anything else.
Only negative point, is there lack of washrooms. There are none upstairs, which is where most people dine in the warmer months, and there are few stalls for the number of people the restaurant can hold.
My husband and I were there again last night with another couple, and before we left he had to use the facilities. We walked outside to wait for him, and 10 seconds late he came out! We were all surprised that he was so quick, but he said that he walked there, saw a huge line up and walked out. Myself and my girlfriend were so surprised as that is typical of the scene at the women's washrooms. Hope this can be updated soon.
Otherwise, food, ambiance, service, are excellent and all staff are very friendly and kind.
Ya Gotta Eat Here!
Awesome place, been here many times. Great place to hang out and grab drinks. The food is really good.
We had fabulous service from the staff, but had to wait a bit lomger than expwcted for our meals. It wasn't too much of an issue, and when we asked for one plate to be expedited, it was.
Overall a good experience.
outdoor roof top seating is cool, great atmosphere
I do prefer your King West location as it has healthier options. My friend and I have challenges with diet so having a gluten free and vegan option readily available would be great! Also, a 'virgin' option at a lower price for your drinks (specials). The King location has a beautiful kombucha, for example, but when I visited their service was nowhere close to the Yonge-Sheppard's! :)
The service was excellent. No pressure to leave when we were done. It would have been nice if there were more side dish option than just fries. Otherwise, we will be back there again...
Excellent food and service. BUT...yes, it's Saturday evening, but there is no need to blast the music so that you cannot hear your dinner partner across a two-foot table at 6:30 PM. If music must be played (yes, it's nice for atmosphere), then it should be background during the dinner hour - NOT nightclub level. Ridiculous.
Great service, food & patio!
Really enjoyed watching the NBA Playoff Game at the Union Social. Staff was friendly, reservation was ready on time. Will definitely be back!
Got a nice cozy table. But booked a high top table so did not get a great seat to watch the game. The manager Julian is amazing. Always takes very good care of all his guests.
Great atmosphere, friendly staff, great food. Will definitely visit again!
We went to Union Social Eatery before a play at The Toronto Centre For The Arts - we just chose it from selections online because it was nearby and we LOVED it!
Our server, Idene ( sp?) was just wonderful, so friendly and attentive and the food was delish. The manager also brought us a yummy desert as a complimentary treat. Would def recommend and we’ll be back!
Great food and exceptional service. Must have had 4 or 5 different people in addition to our server, come by the table and help out without us even asking. The employees seemed to be having a lot of fun and it shows in their service. Everyone’s meal was great. Definitely will go back the next time I’m in the area.
Great service! Food was fabulous!
Always the best meal and service at Union. Never disappointed
Food was great, service was excellent, but a bit noisy though.
Extremely friendly, easy check in and fast seating with reservation, great management and food was amazing!
The night did not start off that well, but Julian went out of his way to make our experience a very positive one. We look forward to coming back.
They turned on the TV sound prior to the games starting and they should have muted the commercials. It was a good 30 minutes before the puck was supposed to drop and you couldn't hear your didn't companions without yelling at each other. All so we could listen to commercials.
Esther the GM was warm, accommodating and kind. Really made our time enjoyable.
Hostess was confused by reservation. We were 6 people. They placed us by the door.
The noise was too loud for anyone to hear the other speak.
What was to be a team building meal turned out to be an eat and run meal
Varied menu moderately priced with attentive servers.
We had a great evening - good food, good service and a comfortable atmosphere!
Very good food and service. Was just much louder then we expected. Was hard to have a conversation over the noise in the restaurant.
Lunch was great. Great service and great food!
Our food was taking longer than usual and the General manager apologized and gave our table a gift cards .. amazing customer service !!
Everything was amazing from the food to the service. Must check out. Highly recommended :)
