    We both order fillet’s and both looked properly cooked to medium but were the toughest steaks to cut. One person would hold the table glasses while the other would cut their steak. The service was good. The table next to us seemed to be having the same issue with their steaks. We did not bring to our waiters attention because we didn’t want to wait on a new order and we do not plan on going back; it was that bad.

    I enjoyed my food but was wearing a silk dress and kept sliding out of my seat. They sat us at a high top and it made staying as long as I wanted unbearable.

    It was awesome!!! We were seated right away, we checked our coats at the door, everyone we encountered was beyond pleasant. We were there to celebrate a birthday for restaurant week and from the moment we stepped in the door until the moment we left, it was phenomenal. The food was delicious , the mixed drinks were very refreshing and the cost for the amount of food we received was priced fairly. We will return !!

    Celebrated my 40th birthday with a weekend getaway in Charlotte. To top off the weekend, we had brunch at Church and Union. When we walked in, we immediately knew we were in an upscale spot where young sophisticated professionals come for Sunday Funday! The food was delicious! I had the brunch burger with a fried egg! It was outstanding! My wife had the shrimp and grits and she cleaned her plate lol! The crab cakes were ordered by two of my friends and smashed it! Overall, this was a 5 star experience!

    I’d recommend Church and Union to ANYONE! We went here for my 28th birthday this past Saturday since Eddie Vs could not accommodate us. When I tell you the service was impeccable! We did have to wait a while for our table but the service truly made the difference!!! Thank you to our server Sarah for making the night magical!!

    One of our favorite spots. Everything was amazing as usual… service, drinks, appetizers, entree, and dessert. Highly recommend the melon/bacon appetizer and the chicken karaage, Delmonico steak was fantastic, Yukon golds for side. Liking forward to our next visit!

    This was my first visit.new went for Sunday brunch. The great reviews free valet parking made this the perfect choice. The food was great, but the server was absent. It appears that Sunday is their biggest day and they were packed. I imagine the server was spread quite thin, thus we didn’t get the attention we would have liked. Overall a great experience.

    Love the decor and definitely a fun place to have brunch! My family enjoyed their meals, even the kids. The home fries and burger were so delicious. Our server was friendly and very engaged. She was pretty busy so at times there was a delay with refilling water or coffee.

    Decent experience. Food was great, service was good. Music was a tad bit too loud in my opinion. Only major issue is price, absolutely no need for it to be as expensive as it was. I was visiting Charlotte so I cannot speak to how it compares with other similar restaurants. With that said, I’ve had equally pleasurable experiences for substantially less than what I paid.

    The restaurant was offering a feature drink and dish however after ordering the feature drink the server had to come back to the table to inform us they did not have all the ingredients to make the drink. After ordering the feature dish, a different employee came to the table to notify us they did not have that available either. We were not in a rush but we did have an itinerary to stick to. We waited 20 minutes to close out with the server.

    Service was excellent. They made an error on my order and had the correct replacement out within minutes. Manager and waiter were very sweet and apologetic. The Mamosa flight was wonderful. Ambience was also fantastic. I had the CU Burger on a brioche bun. Burger was good, but not as spectacular as I was hoping… just a little dry in lacking in pizzazz. However, the truffle cheese ON THE burger was pretty fantastic.
