    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.

    A group of eight of us recently dined a C&U for brunch and the food was phenomenal...the service, not so much. There were several instances where the server was absent for an incredibly long time, had to flag him down to place an order for anything, and waited long to receive our bill. I would come back, just hope the service is better next time.

    We dined for NYE, the menu offered was amazing. The decor was super cute and the DJ played a variety of tunes. Our server Dion was super attentive, even shared a few laughs with us. The only hang up was the extremely long wait to be seated, for an 8:45 reservation we weren’t seat until 9:30 and when confirming the reservation it wasn’t shared that the NYE celebration would be an additional charge ($60) aside from the $120 for our reservation slot. We are often here for brunch and will return; additional charges just need to be noted as such for special events

    We went for the new years deal. My main (pasta) was cold and they ran out of all desserts included except for the one no one wanted, which my friend couldn’t eat. The bone marrow, filet, and shrimp cocktail were all good. We felt “okay” about the price we paid. Will try someplace else next time.

    We went for New Year’s Eve and had the best meal ever. I had the bone marrow with Gorgonzola and the duck breast and a chocolate mousse dessert. My friend had the mushroom risotto, filet and a grapefruit cake. The service was great and every course was incredible. The portions were good and it was a great spot for the holiday and will definitely be going back. Totally recommend for a nice night out! I love food and this is seriously one of the best meals I’ve had in general (not just in Charlotte)!

    Our server was great and the rest of the experience was poor-from never receiving a call back from the restaurant (after 2 voicemails) and they had been the one requesting a call. Had to wait for valet. Charged a higher tier price on NYE even though bill said 5:56 was when our order went in. Rushed through the entire experience with entrees coming out as we just received our appetizers. Swordfish has to be sent back (not fresh). I hardly ever complain because I’m a personal chef and understand how challenging this business is (always in awe of the restaurant business and the chefs/staff). Such an overall disappointment, I thought I needed to express. We were so looking forward to this, but felt disregarded on all levels except our server, who was kind and attentive even if the experience was rushed beyond what would be expected on NYE.
