Union on Ossington - Who's been lately?

Speaking of judging a place by it's menu, this place looks fun and creative. Is it?

    I have been twice in the past 6 months. It was very enjoyable . My only complaint was the noise! Had to shout all through dinner! must be getting old!

      I have been twice in the past couple months - both times for Sunday brunch. The first time it was outstanding - short rib eggs benny - yum. The second time not as great but still pretty darn good!
      Check the website because I think that they have some special evening "deals" - Sunday night prix fixe option and 1/2 price wines Monday.

        Haven't been there in a year but their massive cote de boeuf for two was pretty fantastic, not sure if they have it on the menu anymore. Buzzy room, good vibe.

          Love the food and the service - but find the seating very tight if sitting on the south side of the room - elbow to elbow with your neighbour.

            I don't mind that if the food's worth it. Beyond good food, clean is my only other mandatory,

            There's precious little about this place on the board. Heck, I had to make the linking restaurant page because no one else had. Why doesn't it get more love?

              I've only been twice so take my thoughts with a grain of salt, but it was just ok for me. Nothing more or nothing less. That being said, as per childofthestorm I've been told the cote de boeuf is a great dish, it is just not something I would order.

            I've been 4 times now most recently about a month ago, maybe a little longer. We always enjoy it. Well-executed food with a couple creative twists here and there. Loud, bositerous atmosphere and a nice looking room. I'd compare it favourably to Harbord Room as a point of reference.
