Diner Reviews
  • "I booked this restaurant based off of previous reviews from OpenTable and it was AMAZING!! Everything from when you enter the door. The hostess staff was very welcoming and inviting, they also knew we were celebrating our anniversary by the note I put on our reservation. They even made us a few,very sweet. The waitress was great and very attentive and the food...it was FANTASTIC!! We had calamari for an appetizer and I had the short rib, which was like cutting through butter, so tender. My husband had the hanger steak and fries. The steak was very flavorful and he said the fries were the best he ever had. The decor was beautiful and the bar as well. The pace was packed and we went for dinner at seven."

  • "We brought some out of town guests to dinner at 5church. We had been before but They were really tickled with the setting. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed their meal. I had the scallops that were delicious! A couple of the quests in our party had special dietary needs that they easily made accommodations for. Service was great. A little drafty in the restaurant for some of the women. I had heard there had been some concerns with the noise level at 5church but we didn't really notice that. Maybe because we were one of the loud tables. :)"

  • "We were at 5Church for restaurant week and were very impressed with food and service. When we were there last Saturday night, celebrating a birthday with family which we noted on the reservation, we thought we took a wrong turn and landed in a nightclub for twenty somethings. Our service was terrible - missing silverwear, drinks that didn't show up, no knowledge of wine list, mispronouncing key terms that any server should be familiar with and blaring soundtrack that didn't permit conversation unless it was at shouting level. The food was outstanding and the chef(s) were shortchanged by the terrible service that distracted from the food preparation and presentation which were fantastic. I would not go back to this restaurant again."

  • "My wife and I read an article in a magazine and decided to try. Really nice decoration and good ambiance. Food and service were good enough for what we were hoping but not exceptional."

  • "Great for starting the night out right! very good cocktails and great music! Chill environment where you can socialize. This is not a club/dancing atmosphere but that is what is great about it. Sometimes you just want to be fancy and social :)."

  • "Too much noise and activity for my taste. Waiter needs retraining not to be so intrusive and talkative."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "We were impressed by the food. The Catfish was on par according to our friends with what they get in Louisiana. It had a nice balance of spices and the breading was great. Once we told our server we were on a deadline, he was on top of everything checking that we were "good on time""

  • "I have always regarded the PB&J as the quintessential lunch sandwich - one that shouldn't be messed with. We ordered the sandwich special...a PB&J with bacon and jalapeno peppers, as a lark. I ate the whole thing and now I have to eat my words. It was fantastic. The heat from the peppers was the perfect kick with the PB&J. And bacon is good with anything right?! 5Church was a visual treat too - from a dazzling array of unigue lighting to the multi-level chalkboard ceiling tiles covered in discourse. Seemed empty during the weekday lunch hour...what a shame!"

  • "The cocktails were great- this place is not stingy with their alcohol. This dinner was for a business casual dinner but the music was so loud that we couldnt hear eachother or even our server very well. The appetizers and entrees were good excet 3 of our guests ordered the fish and all said it was a bit dry. The aps, chicken and filet tasted amazing though. I would absolutly come back here and recommend to friends and family but I do not recommend if you are looking to have a serious or professional converstation. The restaurant is very clean, the service was good, and the food was great with a really hip and fun atmosphere. It was just wrong for what we needed it for."

  • "I had high expectations based on a Charlotte Magazine review. Let me say from the outset, the food was very good. Two of the three of us had their signature strip and it was flavored will and great size. Pizza with shrimp was very tasty although I would have like a shrimp on even distribution (i.e. needed a couple more); the calamari was cooked perfectly. One of the party got the catfish. He enjoyed it but not the sides that came with it (black eyed pea concoction); they deserts were reportedly of high repute and made in house but we were too full. For me, the deserts offered looked all to be too heavy. My biggest complaint had to due with the noise level and poor physical finish of the place..more of a pub/after work place."

  • "The food was okay. Nothing wrong but absolutely nothing special. But you've got to understand, this is perhaps the most special restaurant in the history of all creation. You are badgered to death with that branding message the minute you walk through the door. The waiter reminds you that this is a chef's restaurant, whatever that means. Then you have to listen to sermon about the decor. Do I really, really care? Then, he, the waiter was a guy with his shirt tail hanging out, stops by every two minutes to make sure you're having a wonderful dining experience, while he pointedly upsells you on a serving of asparagus. No kidding, he came to the table at least twenty times. Running out of characters. Can I get my money back?"

  • "Some good friends and I had brunch at 5Church this past Sunday and it was fantastic! The food delicious, wait staff friendly and attentive. And when they say "bottomless" mimosas, they aren't kidding! Our glasses were never not full! Was such a fun brunch date with friends and we look forward to coming back!"

  • "The 60-second NY Strip Steak is a legitimate great steak. While this is not a steakhouse, the 60-second steak puts much more expensive steakhouses to shame."

  • "--Service: Hostess seemed like she'd rather be somewhere else; but our waitress was excellent! --Food: Only so-so. My wife and I had brunch here. She got the hanger steak and fried eggs, and I got the crab cakes and poached eggs. Not a meal that I'll remember. --Atmosphere: Nice enough place; menus need to be replaced."

  • "My favorite restaurant uptown hands down. Never boring. Tasty food. We did their new summer tasting menu. Great deal for 5 courses. Best place to people watch while having dinner and cocktails. Saw Michael Jordan too!"

  • "My friend and I visited 5Church this past weekend and by the décor we thought this may be a winner. The service was fine... not bad, but not great. I ordered the gnocchi and my friend a chickpea salad (which was small). The gnocchi itself was nice, but the flavor was covered in salt. Maybe the chef accidently dumped the salt shaker into my food??? My friend said her salad was fine, but did not like her order of CAROLINA CATFISH... she said the flavor was off. I tried the Monk Fish which I felt was over cooked and again salted to death. The one thing 5 Church did right was the WILD BERRY MOJITO- Yum! The crowd was filled with 20 something's (there was a big birthday party) this Fri evening and it was loud, but that does not bother me."

  • "Expected OK menu and food given the Bar Scene...Top shelf appetizers, main course and drinks...Definitely would recommend..."

  • "The décor was definitely urban chic. There seemed to be an after work crowd in the bar. Lots of opportunity to people watch."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "When sat the hostess asked will you be diner by 8pm as we asked for a different table. Rude! Then service was mediocre, when she came by she was pleasant, though she didn't offer us final drinks or dessert, just the bill. The food was average, nothing worth going back for...as a restaurant you should want something to bring people back to the restaurant."

  • "Had a great dining experience! The food, service, and vibe was amazing. Had a great cocktail the VIPER and Wasabi Salmon dish. Wine selection was perfect. Had a nice recommendation from their Sommelier. After dinner we decided to stay for their bar scene which was loads of fun. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Plus: calamari was very good. Chickpea mint salad good. Bread okay. Bolognese would have been good if the chef handn't tripped and fallen while holding the truffle oil bottle. Lamb burger might have been good had they finished cooking it. Summary: great location. Good atmosphere. Preposterous wine prices. Good calamari. Flawed entrees. Disappointing service."

  • "This was my first time back to 5 Church in a year and boy was I disappointed. The restaurant was a relative ghost town for lunch and I can now tell why. The service was slow and inattentive, the server frowned a lot, the drinks weren't kept full, and the check took 25 minutes (!!) to receive and settle after we were done, even after we told the server we had a meeting and needed to head out quickly. The lamb burger was pretty good, but the fries were almost indelibly overlooked. Very disappointed and won't be going there again after that experience!"

  • "5 Church is an AWESOME place to go to lunch. I had the lamb burger and it was DELICIOUS. I will return."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "A great restaurant and great food that was unfortunately spoiled by poor service. One example is the flat sodas experienced by our entire table, shrugged off by the server as "that's just the way our drinks are". Timing seemed to be off from start to finish and we waited extended periods of time for drinks, food and the check. Likely just a bump in the road for an otherwise solid restaurant but it may be a while before we return to 5Church."

  • "The poached eggs /crab cakes in jalapeno burre blanc sauce was amazing. There were several things on the menu that I just could decide from because everything sounded delicious."

  • "Great atmosphere, great tablr upstairs for a birthday celebration. Our food was great and the server was fun. The only small issue was I sent back my steak as it was undercooked and it took Forever! The server said there were "other tickets ahead of outs" which was weird. But when it did come back it was perfect so I was happy."

  • "Food was great and well prepared. We shared an appetizer, mussels with grilled garlic bread (Yum!)! For the main course, we had the salmon and the monkfish. Accompanying sauces and vegetables were complex in tastes and very complementary to the fish. Ginger creme brûlée was outstanding! As to service, not sure what happened. The waitress was mostly helpful. Sides did not arrive and waitress immediately checked with us then, immediately went to take care of the issue. Sides never arrived so we cancelled. When desert came, no silverware. When the check came, the sides were still on the check. Waitress took care of it immediately. Biggest issue was the loudness! Great for a bar scene but not a romantic dinner (anniversary)."

  • "Menu, food, great, only fault, perougies description misleading, made to believe stuffed with Duck Confit, but had maybe 2 strands of duck layered over the top of the dense perougies, fantastic, smiling, engaging staff. Appealing cocktails, though our appetizer choice was a small blemish on the meal, we had a wonderful evening"

  • "I've dine at 5Church several times and each time I am totally satisfied. When my friends come from out of town, 5Church is the first place I take them. I've had friends there from NJ, NY, TX, DE, GA, AL, and surrounding cities in the Carolinas. Everyone of them had nothing but high marks concerning the food, service, and the ambience. Keep doing what you're doing and I will continue to come. I am such a FOODIE and 5Church always satisfy my taste buds :-)."

  • "We had an early dinner at 5Church before heading to a concert on a Monday night. We arrived when they opened and were greeted warmly. We spent a few minutes at the bar prior to being seated. The service was excellent. The recommendations were good. The restaurant definitely has a cool vibe. It was relatively quiet while we were there, but was filling up by the time we left. I had the 60-second steak and it was very good. The S'mores dessert was also very good."
