Our all time fave local!

I can't say enough about Union. It's practically our version of Cheers! Minus Norm. Their half price bottle Monday's are always great, menu's change daily. Staff are always on top of everything. I go at least once a week. Great local farm produce and meat also! I will keep going.

Seeing this little kitchen producing such grand food is exhilarating. I have had their drinks, tapas, brunch, picnic fare, dinner and lunch and I have been impressed every time. It's my go to for true pleasure and food entertainment.

Union is intimate, lively, with a friendly owner in the store commitment to looking after guests. Wait staff are knowledgeable , food excellent, and french inspired - which means there will be a little cream or butter in the preparation. The atmosphere is convivial as clearly The locals like it. You can sit at the bar which divides an inner... More

A thoughtfully decorated restaraunt that could be in Berlin, Hamburg, Hoxton, New York or any hipster part of town. Ossington Ave is off Queen St W so UNION is a great place to head for when weary window shopping on Queen. Food isn't served all day so make sure you check before you arrive, open 7 days. Good beers, nice... More

Great Service, Food and Staff. With a changing menu based on local ingredients, you know you are getting what is in season. The wait staff are impeccable and the sticky ribs, and charcuterie board were standout. If you are a wine lover they do have a corkage fee of $30, otherwise drinks and wine are reasonable priced. Highly recommend.

We chose Union based on a recommendation of a local. We were not disappointed. It definitely has a hipster vibe and the place won't be winning any design awards. However, it's clear all is with a purpose and the food is fantastic. The kitchen is essentially in the dining room and while the smell of bacon wafting over to the... More

Located on a residential street in an older part of Toronto Union 72 is very small, very noisy and you will likely end up talking to those at the next table since table spacing is vanishingly small. But! You will remember the food for a long time afterwards since it was outstanding. The DW and I shared a very large... More

We had come to the area to see a show at the Lower Ossington Theater and after checking out some of the places close to the theater on TripAdvisor we decided to make a reservation based on all the great reviews. We definitely weren't disappointed and truly enjoyed our time at this nice little place.
