Great lunch spot

My friend and I enjoyed a very nice lunch here, prices were good and our server was very friendly and helpful when I couldn't make my own mind up what to have. Great variety! Was very yummy indeed!

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

We came for a birthday celebration. It was important to find the right table foe the two of us. Waitress wanted to stick us in a mini table against the wall, a totally unpleasant spot. She seemed slightly put out when I preferred another 2 person table that was roomier. We ordered the hamburger and the chicken burger. It was... More

Wow! What lovely food! My med-rare AAA 6oz steak was done to perfection. The yam mash was so yummy and the greens really added color to the dish as well as a hint of sweetness with the dressing - which was courteously placed on the side! The price was fair - I would have paid more for it, that's how... More
