    I expect a tight ship from an esteemed chef and award winning restaurant group. Also, a pricey check. This was anything but. Maybe the waiter was overworked; it was dinner service on Mother's Day and he had another big table. But this isn't Applebees and there should be ample staff to assist. Still we waited to order, waited for drinks, waited for wine to be poured long after it was ordered and AFTER entree's were served. Q: how's the bass? A: I don't know I don't eat fish But here was my least favorite moment. The server asked my mom to take her fork off the salad plate, to keep it for the next course. She said she needed a new fork and his response was "I'll see if we have anymore after today." This place is not run by grownups.

    I must admit, I didn’t eat all the food offered. What I did eat, was overcooked. The eggs were not cracked eggs. It might be a great spot to go just not when it’s a set or prefix menu.

    Mother's Day brunch was a dud. The food was less than ordinary, and quality was similar to what you get at a hotel where they include breakfast. You know the ones. After tax and tip, the two bills would have been better spent elsewhere.

    I had brunch with friends at Union and Church several months ago, had the best experience, food/service/value 5/5 overall. However, I was there for dinner yesterday to celebrate my husband's birthday and my experience was not as good, very average 3/5. The dinner meal selection and food were not good. For desert, we ordered Tres Leche but we we got was definitely not it👎 I would recommend brunch and NOT dinner

    Our service was very good and that overcame many of the shortcomings of the meal. Appetizers were very good overall despite the irregular cuts and excessive fat in my tartare. The two filets were cooked to the right temperature inside yet the outsides were overly crusted and difficult to chew. The fried chicken has a very odd coating that detracts from the experience. That the bar staff had not prepared the simple syrup for a restaurant signature cocktail was a significant disappointment in a restaurant I've been to several times. Thank goodness it was "only" family and not a client I was trying to impress!

    ***UNACCEPTABLE SERVICE*** We arrived at the restaurant a bit early for our reservation and stood at the door for about 10 minutes before being acknowledged. Once seated, a server came by, poured water, and we didn’t see him again. After waiting another 10 minutes, we stopped a bartender who was walking by and informed him that we’d been waiting a while for someone to take our orders. He was gracious enough to take the orders and put them in for us. Once our order was in the sever eventually came by to assist with dropping food off. I suppose I'm a bit surprised by this because there were very few people at the restaurant. When the server finally arrived, he informed us he was taking care of another customer with food allergies, which is understandable. However, there should have been someone to back him up, or even a manager could have come by to explain the situation and take our drink order without us having to literally flag someone down.

    I would not return here. The food was OK and came quickly. It was very loud inside and not one soft surface to absorb the noise. The server was rude and poorly trained. Charlotte has a lot better to offer.

    This was our first time dining at Chirch and Union. It was an absolutely great experience! The food was very tasty, mimosas were good, and the bloody Mary was on point. Emmanuel was our waiter, and he was exceptionally great! If you make reservations, I would come a bit earlier for parking! We are already planning a return visit! The Holy Sh#$ breakfast platter says for 2, I'd say more for like 3 or 4! The chicken biscuit...delicious, shrimp and grits....delicious!

    Highly recommend! We went for brunch. Had a 1pm reservation, a bit of a wait for our table (they were slammed). After being seated TJ, our server, was very attentive and knowledgeable. We ordered a pineapple mimosa carafe, avocado toast as a starter, bacon omelette & shrimp and grits for entrees. Everything was delicious and reasonably priced. We will be back!

    After waiting 30 minutes to be seated for our reservation with little updates from the hostess staff, we were very disappointed until a a few chairs opened up at the bar. We sat there instead of waiting even longer for a table. Thankfully, the bartender Jesse turned our night around with excellent service. The food was delicious, the ambiance was great, and we enjoyed our evening.
