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

On my first night in Toronto, I came here on the recommendation of my Air B & B host and I'm so glad I did! My first great idea was to sit at the chefs bar, instead of in the window. This gave me immediate access to the chef, Ross, a very friendly kiwi, and his team, who made me... More

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
