    The food was tasty but very limited. This restaurant should not be considered a seafood spot due to what’s being offered. Everyone doesn’t eat raw oysters or chilled lobster tails. Again the food was okay but I would not recommend or visit again.

    We had our family fly in for the holiday week and wanted to take them out to a restaurant uptown! We are so happy we chose Church and Union! All 10 of us agreed that everything from the cocktails to the appetizers to the main entree to the dessert was outstanding! Our waiter, Steve, was personable, professional and fun! The service was excellent and we will definitely be back! Thank you all for providing my family with an extremely enjoyable dining experience!

    We waited 45 mins for our reservation for thanksgiving and then 45 for our first course. They were doing a course meal where one of the entrees had 4 pieces of ham for $70. It was unbelievably overpriced. The service was lacking. I will never been back to this restaurant. We were promised family style sides but it seemed like they ran out of food. The drinks took 45 mins to come out. Do yourself and your wallet a favor and avoid this restaurant at all cost.

    The place was overcrowded. We had a reservation for 7pm but was not seated until 7:40pm. The server was overworked so it wasn't their fault that we had to wait for service. This is not a dinner place but more of a hangout with a club atmosphere. The best thing about it was the decor. Very interesting design with many modern twist.

    Not worth the hype. We went for Thanksgiving & we were very disappointed. The restaurant was beautiful; but our server, Mark, couldn't have been slower or less observant. The beets in the beet salad were hard, the gnocchi was salty & mushy, and the tiramisu was very dry.

    We went to Church and Union on Thanksgiving and had their fixed menu. For $70, you got an entree, soup or salad, and dessert. It was a busy night, but it didn’t seem any busier than it usually is. The soup came out cold, dinner lukewarm, and portions were on the small side

    I will say this to start it off my experience here in September was amazing but when we went this past Sunday it was not. We went for my birthday and it took our server longer than normal to get to us even when it came to taking our orders. I had listed in the notes it was my birthday and I just feel like my expectations weren’t met compared to the last time. I feel like honestly he stereotyped us because we are younger crowd and thought he wasn’t going to get tipped enough..

    Our party did not get seated until 35 min after our reservation time. (Odd since the table they put us at was right in front and empty the whole time we waited.) Then, it took forever to get drinks and place our order. Food came out delicious and timely once the server finally took our order.

    This was my first visit to Church and Union. I came for the Louisiana x Charlotte takeover. There was not a disappointment in site. EVERYTHING was superb! The service was great! My server, Jean, was attentive and a great host. The food! Oh the food! It started with the BBQ shrimp. I wanted 3 more plates of that and be completely satisfied. I didn't think the rest of the dishes would live up to the BBQ shrimp. Oh how I was wrong! Each course was a star holding the same weight as it predecessor. The best meal I have had in a decade. Hats off to Chef Jamie Lynch and collab with Chef Lyle Broussard.

    My wife took me to brunch for my 50th birthday. We were seated and after 20 minutes we had not been approached by the wait staff when tables seated after us already had drinks and had ordered. We flagged down someone clearing a table and asked if we could have some water. After a few minutes she sent someone to take our order, not addressing the extended wait time. When our drinks arrived, mine was wrong and they had to bring back the right one. After we ate, my wife wanted to order a birthday desert but the waitress brought the check before asking if we wanted anything more. The food was outstanding but the frustration over the wait made it a less than an enjoyable experience.

    Food was fine, but there were too many misses on the service: appetizer arrived, but no napkins/silverware. No steak knife after the steak was delivered and took a long time to get one after that was pointed out. Ordered a drink that wasn’t delivered.
