We visited for our first time for lunch. The building was empty except for us (and a few stragglers as we were leaving). The ordering process was confusing, and took longer than it should. I ate here with my Fiance, and we both had separate bad experiences. I ordered the Walnut Mushroom Tostado with avocado and bacon, with "screamins" (spicy... More

Hi Ashley. I'm really sorry you and your fiance had a bad experience here at our restaurant. Did you mention to the server when she quality checked how you felt? You described it as "disgusting". We could have corrected the situation. We've sell more Walnut Burgers and Tostadas than you could imagine, and have great revues. We certainly don't like... More

Good menu but the decor is tired and needs a complete renovation to reflect the exterior design. Service is good.

It's such a tough call.... Reorder that last thing that you loved, or try something new because you've never been disappointed? Anything with fresh shrimp is fantastic! The Quinoa/ Avocado salad was over the moon. Riblet appy, Jambalaya, Monterey Burger, Chicken Burger, and don't even get me started on the desserts!! LOVE this place! Aerin Green

I've never been disappointed when eating at the Union Street Grill and Grotto, and would recommend it as a fine choice for anyone looking for freshly prepared good food in a friendly relaxing atmosphere. If I want something quick I'll pop into the Grotto for a bowl of delicious soup, and when my husband and I are out for a... More

Union Street Grill has been consistently one of our favourite places in Courtenay to enjoy high quality food, a peaceful setting, and friendly and knowledgeable staff. Every aspect of their menu is commendable. We are continually surprised by new and unique pasta and seafood combinations and their great variety of tapas items. Their burgers are the best in the valley,... More

Well Thank You, Mr Whyte!! What a great review....we especially liked the "peaceful setting"! Sometimes things seem so chaotic, we forget what it looks like from the customer's point of view. Thanks again, it's always great hearing the super-positive! More

I love going to the Grotto. Whether it's to pop in for a quick coffee or to sit down with my family for a relaxed dinner. This restaurant is very family friendly and I can truly relax there while dining with my three year old. There is a cozy nook in the back where there are toys, books and games.... More

The Union Street Grill is our go-to place to eat. Always fresh, homemade, healthy and delicious, they have a great gluten free menu too (including beer!). I can truly say we have never had an unsatisfactory meal there. Their diner's card was a brilliant idea as well. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. Lovely decor with local art. When...

Every time we go to Courtenay we go to the Union Street Grill. The service is friendly and fast. They have a gluten free menu as well as a regular menu.

We would highly recommend the Union Street Grill to all. It's a special favourite of ours for a nice dinner out, maybe before a play at the Sid Williams theatre, or just because we deserve to enjoy a great feast. The restaurant has a good ambience, just the right tone of bluesy music. The varied dinner menu has lots to... More

Funny how our "small town" of Courtenay is growing so much isn't it? It's pretty big but still has that comfy small town feel. Thanks for coming to Union Street!! More
