The table stopped talking when the food arrived; it was visually stunning. The handbraided ravioli (add sausage) was a favorite, the side of "garlic bread" wasn't your typical garlic bread, it was a wedge of olive oil and buttery goodness. The pork chop was juicy and flavorful. The favorite side BY FAR was the creamy corn risotto with chow chow, an absolute must!!! There were crunchy acidic bites throughout. The saffron threads on top added another layer of flavor. Splendid Jamie Lynch!!

The pork belly Benedict was the best preparation ever! It was perfection and I consider myself an eggs Benedict expert! Very noisy for conversation but the ambiance and architecture is worth the extra effort to be heard.

We really loved the look of the restaurant. The drinks and wine were very nice. I have to say we were disappointed with our meals. Everything was very salty. That being said we would have liked to taste more of the food flavor and it was just disappointing 😑

Not that impressed. Ambience was good and waiter gave a good history of the building. Orderes over medium eggs and bacon meal (simple, right?), eggs had to go back and second set had one completely cooked yolk and other with whites still super runny. I expected more. Husband's salad was good; fried chicken BLT was good too but requested aoili on the side and it came on the sandwich anyway. Didnt bother to have fixed at that point. Less than stellar experience. Atmosphere was good.

The waitress was really inexperienced and the food tasted like it was bought from a super market. I got the kale salad-the dressing tasted store bought, croutons from a bag and dried out Parmesan from a plastic cup. My husband ordered a margarita on the rocks with salt and it came without it which happens, not a big deal. He asked to get one with it on and she brought back a salt shaker and no margarita. The food is not worth the price tag especially because everything is not made in house.

Our visit was a mixed bag. It was difficult to hear our server due to noise levels and masking. I had the special seasonal cocktail and it wasn’t very good. They were sold out of the widely available bourbon I usually drink. One appetizer was excellent, one was so-so. But the decor is interesting and beautiful, our ribeyes were outstanding and the dessert was excellent as well.

5Church was wonderful! My mom, my sisters, me were visiting from out of town and went to 5Church for my sister’s birthday. We had the BEST time! The fried chicken was the BEST we’ve ever had in our lives! Our waitress Shelby was so sweet and was genuinely excited to share about the food and to work there! We loved everything about it.

5 Church never disappoints! The food is always so good (don't get me started on their fried chicken- YUM!) and the atmosphere so pleasing. The staff are so friendly and the hostess so accommodating and friendly! We always have at least one meal at 5 Church when we are in Charleston or have a cocktail and snack at the bar.

Restaurant was out of Bloody Mary mix and wasn’t serving brunch. My friend got a sandwich that didn’t have the bacon on it like it was supposed to. All beer taps were broken. Beautiful place inside but not impressed with the rest of the experience.
