Most beautiful place I’ve ever dined. Worth the experience for the atmosphere. The food was good and the waiter, Tye, was VERY friendly and informative. The service was a little slow but he did state that some meals were made to order (steaks). Overall, a wonderful time and we will definitely be back!! Great place to hang out and enjoy the ambiance.

Our server did an excellent job of answering questions on which dishes were either dairy free or could be made dairy free. The food was delicious. Service excellent.

One of the best meals we’ve ever had. The server was fantastic and the 60 second NY Strip was delicious. Our only issue was that the dinner moved along really quickly as if trying to move people in and out. I was wanting a glass of wine with dinner after my cocktail but the food came before I finished. Otherwise, an excellent night!

We were very disappointed in the Mother's day brunch. The selection was poor. Very limited lunch selections. Meat carving only Turkey. Should have had beef, prime rib as well. The peel yourself shrimp was not chilled enough but the crab legs were and served with warm butter. They were not worth the mess to eat. Not worth the price.

We ordered apps & drinks at the bar. The broccolini and cheese board were absolutely amazing. Some of the bartenders are definitely more friendly and attentive than others but I would definitely go back because words and pictures can't describe how breathtaking this place truly is. We visited 15 bars/restaurants in 4 days and this was my probably my favorite spot and it has a great vibe!

Our server Alyssa was excellent! She helped us navigate the menu. We could only get 5pm reservations as it was Mother’s Day weekend and graduation weekend. We were not rushed at all during our dining experience . The food was great. The fried chicken is a must!

We were really excited to go here; we made reservations for 12:30, and got there around 12:10. We waited for the hostess for about 10 minutes to come to the front. Then a party of 4 walked in with no reservation and she decided to seat them before us. She apologized and then sat our party of 3 in the corner of the restaurant at a table that sat 2 people. We waited for 30 minutes, no server came by to even ask if we wanted water. So we left.

Fantastic food and service. We enjoyed a perfect steak and a tuna poke bowl. Generous portions. A little dark and noisy for my taste but very nice atmosphere. Make reservations since Charleston is a foodie town! Love the decor with Sun Tzu’s Art of War in unique calligraphy on the ceiling, and gorgeous chandeliers throughout. The sushi tots app was delicious although my tots were a little hard. The meatball app was incredible!

We loved everything about our meal at 5Church. Great service even though they were busy. Amazing drinks - my moonshine mule was a treat. The 60 second steak was perfectly cooked and the crust that developed due to the cooking process was unique. We also had the twisted ravioli with sausage which was also excellent. We will definitely e back!

It’s a cool setting but incredibly loud. The food was pretty overpriced for what it was. Server
Was nice but the two tops were ontop of each other, basically eating dinner with two other couples. Maybe a better lunch spot then dinner.

We chose 5 Church for my daughter’s 20th birthday brunch. We had a large party (7) including 3 children. We were originally seated at a bar height table and told there was no high chair to fit the table so we requested to be moved to another table. One in our party requires gluten free and 5 Church specifies on their menu and website that they have gluten free options. The brunch gluten free options were burger with no bun and eggs & bacon. That’s it. Very disappointing. Had we known there were only 2 gluten free options, we would’ve chosen one of the other many well-rated restaurants. The noise level was unbelievable and the service was barely mediocre. The brunch menu was very disappointing and we regretted having chosen this restaurant. We are local Charlestonians and unfortunately cannot recommend 5 Church to anyone. There are far too many incredible restaurants in Charleston with amazing gluten free options. Dine elsewhere!

Cool spot for Sunday brunch but a little pricey ($5 coffee!) Fun to check off your list, tho. If you have dietary restrictions, gluten- & nut-free items were limited on the brunch menu.

The ambiance and experience far outweighed the quality of the food. What a beautiful location in the heart of the market area! We were seated promptly and WHAT A VIEW! Love the layout and feel of the interior.

Our service was excellent-- kind, informative, fast and energetic.

I was disappointed by some of the food. The beignets were tough, and the PBJ cinnamon roll was strange but not necessarily in a good way. The crab cake Benedict needed a more dynamic texture-- it was mostly mushy and the poached eggs were cooked solid. The beurre blanc was cold and split, and the bread was soaked through. Great concept-- poor execution.

Some of what we ordered was great though! The Fried chicken BLT was the best thing we ordered, and the pimento cheese was delicious. The mimosa flight was fun and the interesting flavors were all a hit. The nutella panini was great if you love a sweet breakfast! The coffee was high quality and served hot and in a pretty presentation.

Overall a fun experience. We will likely be back when we are entertaining family and friends in our beautiful city!
