Good Food, Cool Little Place

My family (3 of us) had a late dinner (~8pm) on the grotto side. It was Tapas Thursday so Tapas (appetizers) were $2 off. We all decided to get a couple each and they did not disappoint. They were all super delicious and we enjoyed the funky atmosphere.

we were in Courtenay for a funeral and were looking for a place for lunch at the last minute, Found the "Union" as we were told later how the locals called it. In spite of the reason for the trip, the food and the service made the trip much better.

Union Street Grill is one of my long time favorites in Courenay. The food has been consistently good over the last 5 years. It has a nice, varied menu so will suit any taste.

I was pleasantly surprised by the food in this place. The atmosphere is not wonderful, not bad, but a little dark and not super duper friendly. We had the spinach salad which is the best one I have ever eaten, the mushroom burger which was amazing, a seafood dish, and a chocolate dessert. The bill was also pretty reasonable considering...

You can have a full dinner with West Coast flair or simply a bowl of soup or tapas at the coffee bar side. Entertainment in the evening. Restaurant has changed owners and haven't been recently

Four of us enjoyed a nice dinner at Union Street Grill last week. We each ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their meals. The pasta with grilled prawns and beef ribs were particularly tasty. The wine list has a nice variety of BC wines at reasonable prices. The server was friendly and helpful in explaining the different menus.

This used to be my favourite restaurant when it was owned by Mark & Danielle. I am extremely gluten sensitive and this was one of the few places in town offering truly gluten-free options - they even had their own designated gluten-free deep frying system. No cross contamination there! I recently took my family there for a birthday brunch and... More

4 of us went for a light lunch at the Gotto section of the Union Street Cafe and the food was just excellent and so was the server. The Grotto is like tapas and we all had something different. Thought it was very good. The portions are small but it is a tapas like place. Lots of items to choose... More
