I had the Smokehouse burger with cheese and bacon. My friend ate a regular burger with avacado added. They both tasted amazing! Even the bun was homemade and delicious! Their fries were skinny, which is how I like them best! So good!
It's a sports bar kind of place, so quite loud. Not ideal for conversation with a friend I hadn't seen in 25years. But the food a service were excellent!

The staff here were amazing and really made our night. We ran late but they were still all so accommodating. We had mentioned that we were celebrating both a bachelorette and a birthday and they made the experience so lovely for the bride to be we truly appreciated. Thank you SO much to the staff there for making her night so lovely!

Pleasant enough servers buy bar staff ought to know that you can serve Guiness in a can but only if you don't open it 10 minutes before it gets to your table. Coffee brought without cream and sugar. It was a number of little things that kept happening that brought the experience way down. I won't return.

Business lunch with a group - the staff accommodated our request for a reasonably private corner of the restaurant which was appreciated. Great service and food. Appreciated the GM coming out to greet us as well, making for an inviting atmosphere. I'd certainly go again, given the chance.

The white wine list had a significant listing of wine, yet they only hadtwo of those listed available. We went without, although we had planned on wine with dinner. Union Social was one of our favorite spots. We removed them from our list. Server was excellent.

It was extremely noisy and the salad is smaller now than it was a couple of years ago or even last year.

Took a chance going here. Service was fantastic. We had a few servers come to our table. Also at the end of our email manager came by with complimentary dessert. Food was also good very fresh tasting. Would go back and also recommend.

I have been a few times with great service. However our server this time was very slow, and seemed like had forgot to input our drink orders. Then was no where to be found so we couldn't follow up with her.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
