Union Restaurant and their sister Parisian Grocer/Butcher Shop, Côte de Boeuf, put together a flawless evening for us to celebrate our Daughter's wedding. After the ceremony we started at Union for champagne and charcuterie, which they seamlessly moved to their outdoor patio as the weather cleared. We then moved down the street to Côte de Boeuf for a private dinner... More

I went to Union 72 a few weeks ago for a brunch date with a friend and our significant others. We tried the cod fish cakes, steak tartare, frites with aioli, a few pints of beer and two French 75 cocktails. The service and atmosphere were great inside. Next time, we'll try the patio.

My husband and I were in the area visiting a friend.. suddenly, we were hungry! Our friend recommended Union 72, which was conveniently just a few doors north of their business. We sat in the back courtyard... which was absolutely fabulous and quaint... and enjoyed a delicious cheese plate - local cheeses with toasted baguette and apples drizzled in honey...... More

There are many restaurants for Sunday Brunch in Toronto, but none better than Union Restaurant. Casual bistro atmosphere, slate top tables, 2 small marble bars and a charming, whimsical mural depicting the countryside. The mural always reminds me of the wall art at Bemelmans Bar in NYC. Produce is locally sourced with menu emphasis on farm to table freshness. Lunch... More

Enjoyed some oysters and charcuterie made with local meats and cheeses. All dishes prepared with care. Meats are all hand cured/prepared in house. Great spot for hanging on the tree covered patio. Knowledgeable staff and great wine list.

This is a tiny little restaurant with a casual feel. We walked in off the street at 7:30 PM on a Monday night and were really lucky to get the last two seats at the place, which happened to be at the bar along the kitchen. Yes, the small kitchen is completely open for viewing, and we ended up enjoying... More

I stopped in for lunch today for the first time. I liked their Farm to Table concept. I tried their Steak Hache which was beautifully presented, with a nice assortment of local vegetables. It was delicious. My only wish was for some more local wine to be represented on their wine list especially reds. I plan on returning to try... More

It is alway a mission to find a great burger. Mission over. The burger is done to perfection. Crisp on the outside and a little red on the inside with awesome toppings. The fries are perfect with the mayo and hot chillies topping. At $18.00 a burger it is a little steep, but worth it. Nicely done and good service.... More

Unique dishes at a slightly higher-than-average price. The food was delicious but to me it felt like the type of place where I'd have to crave the dish to actually go back. $12 for 3 small elk meatballs on a single piece of white toast with sauce felt a little steep to me. My colleague had the trout which was... More
