The Church Key Ratings and Reviews
The place is really lovely! We went for brunch and couldn't have been more pleased. The staff was extremely nice and attentive. They kept bring refills for the Mimosas without our once having to ask. The restaurant itself is so pretty and felt so pleasant. We will definitely be back!
I was running 15 min late to my 8pm reso, the hostess told me I needed to hurry because they weren't taking any reservations past 8pm. At 8:40p a couple walked into the restaurant... the waiter was very helpful and friendly. The food was so salty.. from our salad to the beef and broccoli. Donuts were amazing as usual.
We had heard so many good things about The Church Key that we were a bit skeptical upon arrival. Wow, were we ever pleasantly surprised to learn that all those good things were absolutely true. The food was so flavorful and creatively prepared. The service was sensational and the Sunday night movies on the big screens were a big hit with the family. I've had a lot of high end hamburgers and I just want to say, TCK's was one of the best I've had in a long, long time. The dim sum cart was a lot of fun. Fixed Price menu was a great bargain. Recommend it highly. The warm doughnuts are the dessert of choice. Don't miss them.
Came for Easter with a couple friends who also have never been here. Such a good vibe and overall loved the experience! Seated immediately and all agreed on bottomless mimosas, though they had other bottomless options like Rosè, margaritas and blood Mary's which were fun options but since I've haven't done brunch in a while, I wanted classic mimosas! We ordered the doughnuts that everyone raves about, and my god, they were absolute perfection! Literally melted in my mouth. I got the eggs Benedict and would definitely recommend! They have a girl walking around constantly refilling our champ glasses so we all left full and tipsy, which to me is all I want from a good brunch! I want to say I'll come back for dinner but I really just want to come back for brunch ASAP!
Went on a Sunday night. Warning: it's movie night. They were playing Harry Potter--not exactly sexy night out on the Sunset Strip. Terrible service--appalling. No one else in the restaurant and the food took two and a half hours start to finish. Between the Harry Potter, the empty restaurant, and the glacial service, terrible if putting it mildly. The food, however, was great--just hard to enjoy. Very frustrating.
I love Churchkey, so many choices for brunch with the same food, except Churchkey. The food is at a different level, and the service is outstanding and the servers are generous. Delilah was such a sweet heart and very accommodating. So rare to see a hostess get down and make sure the tables don't wobble, etc. Very detailed.
My girlfriends and I went to The Church Key for a ladies' night out. We were pleased by the food and cocktail selections and loved the unique dim sum carts that came around with small bites and boozy popsicle. The decor is spot on, an eclectic mix of vintage and modern, rustic and glam— all without being too busy, surprisingly. Tall ceilings and white washed walls keep things airy and elevated. The hallway to the washrooms offers plenty of selfie/photo ops, with a bold mural and telephone booth. Have fun! The Church Key offers a plethora of conversation starters. From the gyoza to the graffiti wall, you definitely won't run out of things to gush over.
Saw this place on YouTube video featuring their one of a kind brown butter glazed donuts. Decided to check it out. Found out they had a menu of delicious sounding food and decided to try it with my girlfriend.
Quick response. This place is great!
Long response. The atmosphere is one I can really enjoy and stay it for hours. The service was amazing; extremely kind, polite, and patient. The food was more than amazing, and yes the donuts are a must have.
Overall I highly recommend this place but it does come with a high price tag...Well larger than I am use to, but totally worth it and will try to go again in the future.
The food was fantastic but the service was terrible. Our server was one of
The worst I've ever had. The manager and hostess really tried to make up for it but it's just very frustrating when your server is an absolute JERK. I'd go back for the food in a heartbeat as long as Isaiah wasn't our waiter (or even on the schedule for that day)
Overall very tasty food. However, we were disappointed when we asked for our bill and our server did not bring it to us for over 35 minutes. We saw her walk past us at least a dozen times and tried to get her attention. Even though she may have not been, it almost felt like she was intentionally ignoring us. It was a bummer because up until that point, we were raving about the place.
The Church Key is awesome. The dim-sum carts are no gimmick - the food from them is outstanding, and cheap. The rooms are big and chic, yet the seating is cozy. Service is great - food remains outstanding. Cocktails are well executed. This dinner had a couple of hiccups compared to previous visits. We ordered a total of 4 dim sums, 2 appetizers, and 2 main dishes. The 4 dim sums were excellent. However the steak tartare appetizer was a bit bland. The "Chicken Pot Pie/Coq au Vin" is nondescript and rather tasteless - however the dish we took to replace it (scallops and spaghetti squash) was fantastic. All tolled, maybe the Church Key wasnt on its A-game, but still, its a great restaurant - we've been a half-dozen times, and we'll be back soon
Overcooked, burnt hash browns. Gloppy croque madame...where is the bacon? Salt shakers contain large salt crystals that must be ground to be usable (or extractable from the shaker). Manning level seemed overwhelmed by the crowd and unable to attend to table adequately.
I was extremely disappointed with the food here. I usually don't complain about food unless it's unexceptable, and in this case, it was. My party tried the pork chop, chicken pot pie, and steak. The pork chop was dry. Chicken pot pie was watery, had very little meat, and had bones in it. The steak came out cold. The potatoes were raw and carrots over cooked. They also had dim sum items that came around that were literally bite size. For the prices they charged, you could get a whole meal out of them. Overall the experience was poor and prices high. I would not recommend this place to anyone.
This restaurant has a lot going for it - beautiful decor, good service, central location. The food, however, was a massive disappointment. For the price the dishes lacked flavor and the seafood entree was over cooked and didn't taste at all fresh. A real shame as the interior is gorgeous.
Restaurant was great and food was really good. Only issue they promote this dim sum cart thing but after being there over hour and a half the carts never came out. We were looking forward to that part of the meal. We finished are dinner and were too full to eat any more. Not sure what the deal was there. They say the carts come out every 20-30 mins but not the case Saturday night. Oh well!
We were very pleased with our brunch experience at The Church Key. The service was top notch, our server knew exactly when to come by and offer assistance. Food was terrific as well. We ended up spending almost three hours there, and did not feel rushed to leave.
