Diner Reviews
  • "My subject says it all. We were here for Queen's Feast, so the price was fine for this outing. I looked over the regular menu and would not even consider this place with those prices. The food is in the 15-30 a plate range at best and they ask way more. I did not like the Hanger Steak at all (I should have known better because that is not a good cut anyway...), but the sides were ok and the dessert was awesome. It was so loud in the restaurant that my girlfriend and I basically yelled to each other the whole time. This is no doubt a result of the music. It was turned up as if it was 11:00PM not 8:00... Our server (her name escapes me) was excellent. She kept out glasses full and checked us in an appropriate manner."

  • "Loved the ambience, food and drinks were amazing! Ordered the viper cocktail which was refreshing and fun. It was restaurant week so the restaurant was packed and quite loud but tolerable. Food is imaginative and well presented. There was valet parking which made the evening much easier as it was raining. I'll go there again for a great food experience."

  • "Service was very good except for the fact that I had to ask for a cup of coffee twice and was almost through with my dessert by the time I got it."

  • "The restaurant was beautiful. The service was good. The food was ok. The bartender left alot to be desired as he didn't know that a lemon drop was a martini. Nonetheless, I would give it another try, I guess."

  • "My husband and I went here for restaurant week, and we both ended up paying a small amount to upgrade our entree to filet mignon. We were SO glad that we did that because it was honestly the most perfect steak I've ever had. I ordered mine medium rare, which it was. The entire inside of the steak was perfectly pink all the way through, and the outside of the steak had a thin seasoned crust. I was amazed by the portion size - it was huge!! The other items we had were good as well, but nothing really compared to how blown away we were by the steaks. Can't wait to go back!!!"

  • "The food was delicious. My appetizer was delicious, the pork belly, but way too small. The main course was outstanding (the salmon) and a good portion size. The dessert was ridiculously yummy (smores)and my hubby's spring roll dessert was also outstanding. The waitress was great, friendly and knowledgeable. One thing that left a bad taste in my mouth is that we arrived early so we went to the bar for a drink. The bartender was quite aloft and looked annoyed when we asked for a drink menu and never smiled or was less than friendly. SHe also seemed annoyed when my husband ordered my wine and only a club soda for himself. Thank goodness the waitress and good food redeemed my first impression of your restaurant."

  • "Our first visit to 5 Church such a wonderful experience. The service, atmosphere and food were all outstanding! Dined during Charlotte Queen's Feast - the menu was diverse showcasing different tastes and offered a great wine pairing option. The staff was very professional and helped us deciding among the tempting choices. The dishes were artfully presented, cooked to perfection and tasty. The memory of this great meal and dining experienced will be in our memory for a while - We will definitely be back!"

  • "Let me first say, it was restaurant week, but still.. We had been looking forward to our reservation for weeks based on reviews from friends. The restaurant has a cool vibe, but that's where it ended for me. I couldn't finish one course before they were just dumping the next one on the table. I literally had appetizer, main course and dessert all sitting in front of me. Like I said, I know it was restaurant week, but could you at least ASK if I was ready for the next course? And the meal itself was unimpressive, up charged for filet that was just sitting on a pile of mashed potatoes. We are true foodies and we won't be back."

  • "I was less than impressed with 5 Church. After hearing great reviews I had big expectations but the food was not up to par. I loved the atmosphere but it was loud and I felt they were trying to rush us through dinner."

  • "We went with another couple for Charlotte Resturant week. We had heard great things about 5Church so our expectation were high. It was a good dinning experience and we will give it another try."

  • "We ate at 5Church on 7/20 after being at the Blumenthal. We both chose from the Queen's Feast menu. The pork belly appetizer was so small that I couldn't get a sense for how it tasted. My salmon with Asian vegetables was a bit overcooked. The Asian vegetables were 95% shaved carrots. My friend has the filet which was very good. The deserts were good but routine."

  • "Food was good... Waitress was excellent and bar and management also great. However, the hostesses were not friendly and never smiled, seriously, quite frankly indifferent toward us, pretty annoying, we had to wait past our resv time almost 20 min and people coming in after us being seated before us, and treated like i was bothering the hostess when I asked when we would be seated, don't know if I would go again..."

  • "Went on a busy Friday night during Queen's Feast week. Service was excellent as usual. Food was a notch below what I've had there before but still good. Potatoes served with my Hangar steak were on the cool side, but flavor was good (the steak was perfect). Wine pairing was nice and overall a good meal for the price."

  • "This was our first time eating at 5Church and we happened to hit it at the start of Queen's Fest. The food was good- nothing over the top except the banana spring roll for dessert (Yum!). Service was very good. Loved the decor, but would probably not choose it for large groups because of the noise level."

  • " attentive service with knowledgeable staff. Comfortable seating. Large bar area generates across the room since no barriers or sound abatement"

  • "The food was great but even after an appetizer and an entree, everyone in the party was still hungry. I would not recommend as a good vegetarian option. Service was exceptional."

  • "My husband and I went there for an early dinner (~5:15pm) on a Saturday night and within 30 minutes the place was packed. The food was incredibly delicious, so I can see why. I ordered the American Kobe Flank Steak with J-1 sauce and it was cooked perfectly. My husband ordered the scallops and he really enjoyed the entire meal. You must get the S'mores dessert as it is a piece of heaven!"

  • "This was my second time dining at 5Church. I thought the first time the food was GREAT at the restaurant. This time...The vegetables were Great, desert was Great, and the main course (Steak) was okay."

  • "Had the herb roasted chicken - it was absolutly amazing - cooked perfectly - Highly recommended. Service was OK - waitress was very friendly, by my drink came after my meal came; was informed there was a problem with the tap system so ordered a bottled drink - after waiting for a long period they informed me that the tap system was now working and brought my original drink, but the beers was warm and the outer glass was "sticky". They did adjust my bill, but it was still a ding on what was otherwise a nice experience."

  • "Food was excellent but the service was mediocre at best. Agreeing to be seated at a high top was a mistake. Waitress was not knowledgeable of the menu and did very little to assist in the dining experience. We especially liked the calamari and dry aged steak. Wines were great. The old-fashion I ordered was decent, biggest flaw were the small generic ice cubes. There was a moderate selection of bourbons. Always been a fan of the atmosphere here and I will re-visit."

  • "Loved the dinner experience. Fast, attentive service with great tasting food. Great bar with many options. But when I ask for your opinion please, waitstaff, don't upsell me. I am relying on your experience of the menu. In all responses we had been directed to the most expensive options with no explanation so it felt like it was only for the purpose of increasing the tab. Didn't feel this way the first time we dined here. Gonna give them the benefit of the doubt."

  • "The food was amazing! I rarely ever eat an entire meal in one sitting, but I couldn't stop! Also, the smores trifle is to die for. The waitstaff is incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. While this place may be on the pricier side, it is well worth it!"

  • " A truly delicious and stellar presentation of Scallops and Filet!!! The Scallops were phenomenal and nearly melted in my mouth. Fantastic temperature and texture differentials in this dish, love it! The large filet was the perfect steak, presented as requested medium-rare with a slight char on the edges. You guys nailed it, again! And that goes for everything from the front door to the wine list. Thanks chef, staff, and management for another fantastic evening!"

  • "While visiting Charlotte recently, we dined at 5Church on a Thursday evening. The restaurant decor is fantastic; the art on display really sets this place apart from the other local spots. Unfortunately, the food does not do the setting justice, or at least the tasting menu didn't. There was no cohesiveness in the strange lobster/kiwi/cheese small plate- just poached seafood and a strange fruit and savory herb cheese combo. The pork belly and popcorn grits redeemed things, but then we were served a very tough cube of whitefish, whose proper seasoning could not make up for what it lacked in texture. the lamb lollipops were delightful, but then the dessert included a stale biscuit base that could have come from a grocery pastry case."

  • "Decor great, but from there it was a disappointment. Seems that 5 church is a place to "be seen," for the young professionals. But the food was quite mediocre. Not awful- but not worth going back. Felt rushed by the staff, as well."

  • "We had an outstanding dinner with you all. I ordered the Salmon entree and it was cooked to perfection. Our server was fantastic, we never had to ask for anything, she was always ahead of the curve."

  • "Finally had the chance to have dinner at 5Church on Saturday night. It is my new favorite; the food and service was some of the best I have ever experienced. I had the scallops and they were incredible; everything on the plate had a role to play. My wife very much enjoyed the filet. The filet had a perfect crust on each side and was cooked to temp perfectly. The corn soup was also perfectly balanced with a rich creamy texture. I find myself craving the soup and scallops now. Can't wait for our next visit. All the recognition and awards 5Church has received is well deserved."

  • "I took my husband here for is birthday! I had heard a lot about the Restaurant and wanted to check it out! Were foodies and really love to check out new places. We don't live in Charlotte so it was quiet a drive for us! We explained to the hostess that we had traveled just to eat there and the next thing we knew the manager was coming to express his gratitude! The service was excellent, welcoming and very helpful! The food was great! We got the calamari for appetizer and the 60 sec strip is amazing! We got the creme brûlée and the smores! Which were both pretty good! The atmosphere is modern elegant and should be a place that is in NYC or Chicago! I think this place is def an asset for Charlotte and will def be back!"
