Friendly fun and fattening (in a good way)

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... read 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.

The trout, when its in stock is my favourite! Servers also know their stuff. Good place to take your wife as a surprise. Get a table, the bar can be a bit windy by the door in the winter.

My wife and I were spending the weekend in this area of Toronto and had been shopping on Ossington when we decided to stop for a drink at Union, before going to a different location for our dinner reservation. The bar at the front of Union is usually a good place to have a quick drink before you are seated... More

It's not the best restaurant ever but there's something about the combination of food, decor, staff etc... that just feels so right. I've eaten here a few times. It's always very good and very enjoyable. The Cote de Boeuf for 2 is excellent. I prefer to sit at the Chef's Bar if there are only 2 of us.

The Tartare they have is just amazing, perfectly seasoned and the meat is tender and tasty. They are used also to have a very nice charcutery plate... another strong asset to the menu

On a warm summer evening we ate here in the backyard patio. The ambience was relaxed and comfortable. The service friendly, helpful and accomodating. We ordered a wide selection including the elk sliders, charcuterie and tartare. All the food was tasty and well prepared. The decor is rustic and inviting with an open kitchen. The bar menu featured some unique... More
