    We found this restaurant online and decided to give it a try. It's downtown Charlotte and parking was difficult. Even though we were 30 minutes late for our reservation, the staff was still very accomodating and found a table for us very quickly (I called to let them know we were running late because of parking). The food was delicious but it was slow coming out. This may not be the best place to dine if you're starving but if you can wait it's worth it. I had the lamb burger which is their speciality and it was nothing short of amazing!!! I liked the food so much I went back two days in a row:).

    my husband and I had dinner on Saturday with four of our friends. The service was excellent and our waitress was friendly and helpful. Our food was fabulous. the calamari first course is large enough for two people to share. make sure you save room for the s'mores trifle for dessert. can't wait to go back.

    Very excited to see new menu options for lunch, and the portions are very filling. Had the Turkey Club, a must for a lunch menu, and it was delicious! Service was fast and friendly, thankfully because lunch breaks are not very long. Will be back for more lunch breaks and to try some more of the new menu.

    RespectfulDinner
    Dined on 11/14/2014
    Not the best dining experience I've had but overall, a nice evening. Our sever seemed to be disappointed that he had to handle a table of 7 women for some reason, and although I made reservations for the time and amount of people, he seemed like our space was more needed for something else--we felt rushed. It was a friend's (who is a local to Charlotte) quiet and classy bachelorette dinner. I having a few other friends who live in the area, we did a bit of research in where the latest, best place was, and read only great things about 5 Church, their food, and their performance. I was underwhelmed. The food was good but not great--the options were few and prepared well but nothing to rave about. In comparison to the DC venues I frequent like The Lincoln, there was little to be desired in terms of creativity by the chef. The wine list was exceptional, well ranged in price and selection. Again, our waiter seemed annoyed at either having to work or having to be there. He was a bit anxious to get out dinner order started; however, when I looked around the room, there were plenty of other tables, drinking and languishing and enjoying. My recommendation is to give a try with a small party, but don't to put your expectations too high. It's the same as every other new American Bistro that has been backed by crafty investors.

    I made reservation to celebrate my best friend birthday, we had no wait but the sitting was not what I expected. We where sat at these high table next to the bar with little room to move. The wait for the food was a little long but I have to admit it was worth it. Excellent taste and beautiful presentation. I told the manager about the sitting situation and he was very apologetic and treat us with complimentary dessert. Overall was a satisfactory experience.

    5Church is a wonderfully atmospheric space serving a very creative American cuisine. On a Friday evening the low lighting punctuated with ceiling spots & designer chandeliers made for a delicious dinner with attention to the experience as well. Seating here is varied & on multi-levels in the space. Our server, Michelle, was very friendly, helpful with the menu & wine list, and spot-on with our dining needs. The food here is well prepared, with a good variety of offerings for most taste preferences. I highly recommend 5Church & plan to return.

    Came in for an early dinner with a friend and was not disappointed! We started with the calamari appetizer, the ghost pepper sauce was sooo good! We each tried some of their cocktails, the Burberry was a personal favorite. Our server let us know about a their brunch service and we made reservations immediately. Can't wait to come back for seconds.

    Upon entering for Sunday brunch, we were rudely greeted by the hostess. We sat for 20 minutes before being greeted by our waiter and waited another 20 for our drinks. Our food took over an hour and was cold when we finally received it. The manager was not very concerned or apologetic. Was looking forward to trying 5church for the first time but will likely never return.

    The food and service are the highlights. The wait-staff was very attentive and the food was excellent. My wife and I both had steaks (filet) and they were amazing...definitely on par or better than the traditional steakhouses we all know about. This is not your old-man's steakhouse though. The decor is very cool. Lots of black leather, concrete and cool light fixtures. Our only complaint about the ambience is that the restaurant has floor-to-ceiling windows (without any window treatments) and the restaurant sits at a pretty busy intersection. This meant we were constantly under the glare of headlights as cars turned the corner in front of the restaurant. Staff surprised us with a Happy Anniversary card and a coupon for next visit.

    My first impression of 5Church did not have it getting off to the greatest of starts. A 9:15 reservation and we still waited 15mins to be seated. It appeared that this place was the hottest ticket going. By the time we arrived at our table and our lovely waitress Taylor took our order, all was soon to be right with the world. We started our dinner with a bowl of Cauliflower soup that had hints of perfectly roasted cauliflower, enough to whet our appetite for the lovely salad that was to follow, after which we found on our plate the most delicious and delightful North Carolina trout, grilled to perfection with sweet potato puree, no this fish was not over done, caught at its peak and delicious. We will return upon our next visit to Charlotte
