One of Downtown Charlotte's Best Gems!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMNeed more Brunch options,Need more Brunch options, but I chose the 3 Egg Omelette, and it was tasty. No Hot Cocoa available. The Home Fries were excellent. Best part of the meal.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day BrunchI took my mother here for brunch and we had a great time. The portion sizes were good, and our server was very kind.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for Lunch and I wouldWe went for Lunch and I would have to say that I did not love the inside decor, or lack of. It seemed very dark, more like a bar scene. The food was pretty good though.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery Nice BrunchTook my mom there for mothers day Brunch and it was great5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayWondeful spot to spoil my mother a bit!

I planI food was awesome! I plan to visit 5Church again maybe for brunch one Sunday!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMwhy 5church is the bestI was blown away from the moment I stepped in the door. The hostess was very friendly and set me quickly. The service was exeptional and the pairing of my food and drinks were on point.

I will definitely be back!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMHip and deliciousThis was out second trip to 5 Church and it was even better than out first visit! Great service, exceptional food and a vibrant atmosphere. 5 Church feels like a hip, NY hotspot but right here in CLT.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with friendsFabulous experience. Food was delish. Everyone in our party cleaned the plate. Definitely on the list to go again.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent foodFood and service were great. Many interesting choices on the menu, as well as classics dishes.
My only criticism is that the atmosphere is very intense and loud. It seems great for upscale groups, but not quiet dinner and conversation.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a find!!I was in Charlotte for a trade show and I took 5 associates here for dinner. EVERYONE in the party thought this place was great, including me. First of all, the decor is certianly unique and there's lot's to catch your eye. From teh moment we sat down, the service was first-rate. We all shared a few appetizers and had wine and/or drinks, all of which were enjoyed by everyone. The menu has numerous fine choices so it was pretty easy to find something different that pleased all the folks in the group.They have a great wine list and the deserts were an excellent final touch to a great meal. If you want to impress friends, a date or yourself, then get over to this place ASAP!!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious salad and soupThe spring salad with wine poached pears, banana chips and goat cheese was so delicous. Can't wait to have it again. The tomato soup with bread/crouton was also very tasty.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice gluten free optionsMy first time here as we visited Charlotte. I was pleased with the gluten free options, although there was no separate menu. The waitstaff weren't too knowledgeable so I was very specific with my needs. They happily complied and I was delighted with my dinner. I will recommend 5Church to others seeking GF dining in Charlotte.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food I have had in aBest food I have had in a long time! They need to bottle the bloody mary sauce and sell it. OMG!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service. OnlyGreat food and service. Only complaint would be the swinging kitchen door upstairs-having to sit across from a bright light, because when it was closed it was a nice dim atmosphere. There was a curtain on one side, but not the other. Either shift the table out of the view, or add another curtain? Just a suggestion.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWine list could use some reasonableWine list could use some reasonable-good wines.....a bit stuffy in terms of the list.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat up and coming place.Great up and coming place.

It was not very busy during lunch either, which kept the noise level down. The parking is challenging if you're not in the uptown area or within walking distance.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFood overall was great! IfFood overall was great! If you order the scallops entree be prepared for small portion......aside from the portion size it was great.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMVery energetic atmosphereVery energetic atmosphere on a Saturday night. Fun people watching around the bar as the evening got a little later. Overall our group enjoyed great service, food and fun.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a trendy place.This was a trendy place. My husband is in his late 30's and I in my 40's thought the atmosphere was to be more of a place where we would have found ourselves at in our 20's and early 30's, with a group of people. We went for a date night and although glad we went we probably wont go back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGriffin Bettencourt. VP at BB&TAtmosphere was trendy but very welcoming.

The only complaint is the valet was shut down due to a downtown event. The restaurant had not been notified in advance so it wasn't their fault but it was a bit of a hassle.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there on a busy FridayWe were there on a busy Friday night and had the halibut over corn special. It is a dish which could be pretty bland but this was quite flavorful. The service was excellent and the meal moved right along. An open area type venue, but we did not feel any particular lack of privacy. Noise was moderate and fortunately the back ground music wasn't any louder.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous resturant.

We look forward to our return.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI had been meaning to checkI had been meaning to check out 5Church for a while. I live in South Park so we usually stay & have dinner around there. My friends were visiting me from out of town and I decided to try 5Church & glad I did! The ambiance was my favorite part, but the food was very good as well! The perfect restaurant to have a girls night and have a few drinks too - they have a DJ till 2 on the weekends. Our favorites were the kale risotto and the Tofu entree. I also had the mixed green salad that was really good too! I will definitely be going back!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMA New "Must" Restaurant UptownPerfect for a nice dinner and for dinner before a cultural event downtown or at Oven's Auditorium. Great vegetarian and gluten-free food as well.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Sunday brunch. EveryoneWent for Sunday brunch. Everyone loved what they had.

Our table was on the second level in a corner, under speaker, next to a back door -- not real great -- will ask next time not to receive this table! They were willing to turn the speaker off for us when requested. The food was outstanding: top of list was lobster mac-n-chees, collards, and the fish! I saw a lot of groups -- would be outstanding to have drinks and app's with friends. jean3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved 5Church. Food was great.Loved 5Church. Food was great. Ambiance and overall decor is amazing.
Will return!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMVery comfortable and brightVery comfortable and bright with space configured so there is a sense of privacy. We had a quiet business lunch. Though not a huge crowd, I suspect it would still be relatively quiet with more people as there are sound absorbing fixtures.
Food was very good and reasonably priced. I plan to go back for lunch and further plan to try it for dinner.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMService by Kevin was outstanding.Service by Kevin was outstanding. The only negative comment is the selection of wines were not impressive. Need to add more "by the glass" options. Will come back in the future and will ask for his station.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food in a very coolDelicious food in a very cool environment.
