I made a reservation for 5:30 pm. Advised that the 5:30 time frame was not available. We opted for 5:15 but upon arriving at the restaurant, noticed that it was fairly empty and continued to be fairly empty until we left! ????

We love this place. This time we had dinner feature, and veggie burger (so delicious) with candy house salad (my favorite). Beer was great, they always have a special offer for each night of the week.
Staff is always nice! Reasonable price. Noise was a little too much but it was Friday night, and the vibe compensated it!

Great time as always at union. The only thing was the hosts said she didn't have our rezos as they were experiencing connection issues luckily they had space on this very busy night

Way too loud to have a conversation. Service was friendly but much too slow and infrequent. Food was pretty good and would return to try again just not during the after work crowd.

We have been going to Union for almost 4 years and we were never disappointed. This time, beef with cajun shrimp and mushrooms, green beans and vegetables, the so called “Dinner feature”, was really something!!

Higher points: amazing dishes for a reasonable price; pleasant and knowledgeable staff 100% of our visits!!

We definitely recommend this place!!

Definitely a good value -- the drinks were less than most other places I've been in Toronto and pretty good. The service was slightly slow especially considering it was a Monday evening and not too busy. Overall, a good place to go if you're looking for something casual and not too expensive.

The service was good, the food was ok and it was really loud in there, so it’s good for people that don’t mind the loudness. The sushi was surprisingly good.

It was my second visit to the restaurant. We were at a booth in the back of the restaurant. It was dark with inadequate lighting. It felt like we weren’t part of the beautifully decorated restaurant. The booths were definitely an after thought and lack the charm of the rest of the restaurant.
When our meals were ready a drink was spilt when placing the plate across. There was a very poor effort to clean up the liquid which quickly spread to most of the place settings. A roll of paper towel was left on the table for us to clean it up. Really!!! That was very poorly done.

The music is always too loud, uncomfortably loud, headache-making loud but as long as I can take a table in the back, right corner I can survive. Service is excellent. Food is excellent. Staff are terrific. I may be getting too old for the loud music🙄 . Very possible.

When the restaurant is full or close to full, it is far too noisy to carry on a normal conversation and very uncomfortable for people with hearing aids/hearing problems. But the hamburger I had was delicious and the skinny fries were quite good too. There should be a "quiet" area with acoustic tile to dampen the noise of people shouting at each other trying to make themselves heard over the din.

Menu has a great variety of food and some unusual twists. I've been here 4 or 5 times, and have always enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. It can be loud during peak periods.

The staff was really friendly and the service was great - the wait staff didn't hover, but we never had to search for one when we needed something. Delicious food! The only negative was that every time the front door opened, the cold air came through so my friend needed to wear her coat.

Noisy at front and near bar but at back in booth it was very comfortable for a long, chatty lunch.
We were there kind of post-lunch so perhaps lucked out on the noise level issue.
Service was quick, efficient, friendly and professional.
Great menu. Lots of appetizer choices to make a meal without even ordering a main.
Daily soup was excellent.

Good food and our server and the manager assisting us seemed eager to work, but it took a long time to bring new drinks and we never got condiments we asked for. At the end, they included on the bill a comped appetizer they brought us without asking us.

Food and service were fantastic, burgers were awesome! The noise level was a bit much though... too loud. We had to yell at each other just to have a conversation. The place wasn't even full, I can't imagine how much louder it would be had it been!
