Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "Had a great business lunch here. Attentive waiter, interesting lunch choices at a reasonable price in a unique setting. Most enjoyable."

  • "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."

  • "Excellent service, great food. Drink offers are not great and overpriced. Bar ambience is good but not so much dinner."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • " 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!"

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "The place is great to impress a first date but expect the meal to be overpriced. They have a respectable service staff and bar service but the food is a bit mediocre."

  • "I have been to 5Church several times, all for after work drinks/apps/light dinners. I Love this place. The decor is very modern but comfortable. The servers are accomodating and friendly as well as knowledgable of the menu with great recommendations. I absolutely love that you can get very well-priced small places to supplement an after work cocktail. I love the Hummus and get it every time. This is my new favorite place to take colleagues when they are in from out of town. I will be back, tomorrow in fact, and hope to make it a date night there soon with my husband. Give this place a try, you won't regret it."

  • "Great choices for dinner, very creative menu choices. The scallops were excellent-delicious and so tender served w baby corn & micro greens. We will definitely try to get back there to try other menu items!"

  • "This restaurant is great for special occasions and the menu is eclectic. The waitstaff was a little too over zealous but perhaps because it was early and the restaurant was kind of empty."

  • "We had a good table on the upper level. Our server Alyssa was really nice and very knowledgeable about the menu. The food was cooked well. The portion sizes on the appetizers was a little small, but the food was good."

  • "5 Church has a lot of buzz, but the food is really not good. It's fun if you get seated on the main floor, but being stuck up in the top floor next to a service door leaves a lot to be desired. I have been two times and might go back for a drink from the bar, but that would be it."

  • "I went to 5Church with a group of 8 this past weekend. Our server Steven was fantastic, and offered plenty of advice for those having trouble deciding. He also gave good recommendations on cocktails. We all chose from different sections of the menu, with mixed reviews. The quinoa tabbouleh was fantastic, as was the bacon pizza, calamari, and scallops. We were less impressed with the beef kofta (which was recommended, but was entirely too dry), and mussels. Also, the white wines we had were decent, but the reds were lacking in flavor and complexity. I would prefer to stick to cocktails next time. Some of our favorites were the Rosemary Gin Fizz and the Viper. I would definitely be back for the cocktails and service."

  • "Ken was our server and things were marvelous from the start. We tried the 60 second steak and were super happy! Smore's Trifle was awesome! We watched the scene evolve from Fine Dining to Club, which was cool. Beer list needs to reflect the Charlotte scene more. Hop Drop is a must. "

  • "We had a great evening at 5 Church. The wild berry monitor was an excellent start.....tasty and refreshing. The mussels were excellent. I loved the pork belly with spiced cabbage but there was only about 3 bites. The lamb burgers were amazing......I'm glad that I didn't get the steak at three times the price of the lamb burger. We got there at 7pm and by 8:30 the place was packed and hopping. Can't wait to go back."

  • "This has been my 8th time at 5 Church. I always enjoyed the food. I brought some out of town business associates to dinner. We had 3 appetizers: Calamari - which was supposed to be spicy with ghost peppers. The ghost peppers were literally ghost peppers. They were not there. We had bbq pork lettuce wraps - they were horrible. Had grizzle in 2 out of the 3. We had the shrimp borsine pizza. The shrimp was raw. I didnt think they served sushi there. They did come through on dinner though. the 60 second steak was excellent and so were the scallops. I honestly will not be going back any time soon. The service was fair at best."

  • "It was our first visit to 5Church for brunch and we will definitely return. All the items our group ordered were delicious, esp the shrimp and polenta. The service was great and so was the sangria. They don't have an extensive kids menu but our children enjoyed the waffles and omelets. Wonderful restaurant!!"

  • "I had several people recommend this restaurant. I had a friend visiting from Connecticut and wanted to try a nice restaurant in Uptown. We were very pleased. The food was great, however our waiter was a little disappointing, nice, but not very attentive. Everyone else working there was awesome. We sat in the bar for an hour afterwards and the staff was very friendly, took pictures for us, and served some great drinks. Even our waiter was great at the bar. Definately worth trying. Loved the food and wine. Great recommendation."

  • "We will both return....next time instead of a one on one...I think a group of us would be a better fit...please note 5chruch was everything I thought it would be. "

  • "I adore this restaurant! The decor is so cool and the food was good. The ceiling apparently is the entire book, The Art of War, hand-painted for 3 months. The staff was friendly and EXTREMELY accommodating for my birthday. The restaurant even gave me a card & 10% gift card towards my next visit! Well worth it."

  • "Service was mediocre, server was lying about background for some reason, completely unsolicited. I think he forgot what he had said, or just fabricates for customers on a nightly basis. He never poured more than the first taste of wine from the $100 bottle. No big deal. Food was good. Probably will not return. Disappointed, I could have picked a lot of restaurants downtown and wasted time and money here. "
