Try the tapas menu!

On a Saturday night, Union Street was busy but service was very good. My husband and I had 3 tapas dishes...the prawn taco, the grilled romaine and the mussels. They were all good but the mussels were particularly tasty with a spicy coconut sauce. The serving was very generous! We are looking... read more

This is one of my "you gotta eat here" places. If I'm in Courtenay at lunch time I'm so happy to visit Union Street Grill. For the very first time we beat the lunch crowd and got a table by the window so we could watch the world go by. From the tapas menu we started off sharing an order... More

We dined here on a Monday night, and the place was very quiet with only a handful of tables occupied. The server, Katie was very good, she acknowledged everyone, both as they entered and as they left. Just a nice touch, to be thanked as we left and welcomed as we came in. Food was excellent. I had the green... More

We had lunch in the grotto, thinking it would be a little quieter and more relaxing with couches and low lighting...uh...no. We really like this place in general and go fairly frequently but there is one thing that you need to know. There is a good chance that if you go to the grotto side, you will be dining with... More

Went to the Union Street Grill for lunch after a recommendation from friends. The atmosphere and service were very good, friendly, helpful staff. My wife had a Vegetable/Kale soup and I had the Mushroom. My wife had tea and I just had water. The soup was served with a very small portion of bread and at $9.00 a bowl was... More

We had a family dinner here. My wife and I had the Chicken Milano and West Coast Linguine respectively - they were good. The quesadilla from the kids menu is so small - it's a toddler menu! Service was so so... very slow, had to wait for about 45 mins to get the food; the white wine was not chilled... More

We love visiting here when in town. Actually, it's moms regular Sunday brunch spot, but when I come from Vancouver we try to go. First of all the service is always friendly and thorough. The menu is extensive and portions are large. Have tried a number of different breakfast, lunch and dinner choices: never disappointed. A must if you are... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Courtenay, we go out of our way to make sure we eat here every time we travel near Courtenay. They have a separate gluten free menu with plenty of delicious choices, and they have a dedicated gluten free deep fryer so that there is no chance of cross contamination. I am a celiac and... More
