Drinks more expensive than last week. $50 steak was too pricey. Service was average at best.

Got to the restaurant was seated at the bar with a prior reservation. When we asked to be moved they acomidated us further confusing us on why we were not seated in the dinning room in the first place. We then went to Order and they did not have half the things on their menu. It was the first time I have ever stood up and walked out of a restaurant

We really enjoyed our dinner at church and main. We shared 3 small plates and they were outstanding. Highly recommend the calamari, mussels and crab cake

Usually I am very happy with my experience there but this time was completely different. While the food was good as it normally is, they try to cram as many tables in there as they can and because of this, EVERY SINGLE TIME someone walked by, they hit my chair. It was often and extremely annoying. We ate as fast as possible just to get out of there. I don't think we will be returning for a while, if ever.

Their calamari is the best - light/tender and the chili glaze is awesome. sweet and spicy. We both had the Mai Tai cocktail which was yummy. I don't like many of their cocktail combos - it's just me - anything with egg whites is a complete turn off - and i just prefer simpler combinations.
I had the rib roast entree - all very good - the waitress suggested the spicy chorizo butter on the side, which i did and i never even touched it - the flavors of everything without were so good, it didn't need anything else. My husband had the ravioli special (butternut squash/goat cheese) and that was very good he said.

Love the environment - albeit a little loud at times. Bar area is fun, but a little cramped at times. Friendly staff - dessert was just ok (cheesecake was not that tasty and texture was off - I ordered the scallops (which were great) and linguine (which was replaced with undercooked bow tie noodles). I have been here multiple times in the past with very good results - this last one was just OK.

We were a party of six for my boyfriends Birthday. They had a great large booth for the party which was very comfortable and somewhat private. Wait staff was wonderful, we can be a high matinence group and they handled us well. Specialty drinks were terrific and the oysters Rockefeller were the best I've ever had!

The food was phenomenal, I had the fish of the day and I have never had fish cooked so well! Complements to the chef, but the waiter acted as if we were inconveniencing her.

We celebrated Valentine's Day for our first visit to Church & Main. It was a delicious meal in a very comfortable atmosphere. We will go again!

Excellent food and drinks at church and main. We have come for cocktails before but had never had food. We were missing out big time! I had the salmon special and my boyfriend had some sort of steak dish, I didn't pay attention...I was too busy devouring my own dish. Good portion sizes. We had the wild mushroom appetizer which was also amazing. We will definitely be coming back!

I was all the way in with a 5 star rating! Seriously, I was! The food and service was just great! But for the price I kind of expect hot water and heat in the bathroom.
