Spooky vibe. Menu was weird. They kicked us out of looking at actual church area because a private group took up entire bar. Love Charleston. Hated this place.
We had a 7pm reservation. We arrived at 7 and were told our table would not be ready for 15 minutes. The place is very beautiful. We were not thrilled with our server's
actions. We ordered a bottle of white. She brought us a bottle that was room temperature. We then ordered a salad to split and she brings us small bread plates.
We had to ask someone else for larger plates. We did not care for their Spring salad. My wife had a strip steak and I had a Pork chop.
We both enjoyed our entrees.
Good was del Cupid, service amazing.
Awesome atmosphere, unique, great food and service
Great location and very unique dining experience in a remodeled church. Charcuterie board was excellent as was my drink (Folly Sunset). My entree (Pan Seared Prawns) was good, however, for $43 it had one more prawn than the Shrimp & Grits app ($15 or $19, can’t remember). Not a great value for the extra $$$.
Food was ok, over priced. Loud and cold ambiance.
Overall an outstanding meal! Atmosphere, service, presentation, food!!!
We enjoyed returning to 5Church. Service was very good and food came out in a timely manner. Three of the four in my party ordered the exact dish with very different portion sizes. That was a bit puzzling.
Great sandwich great service !
I thought the restaurant was unique and actually very cool!! The lunch menu is pretty limited and pretty pricey for what you get! I have heard the time to go is dinner or brunch which I will try next time!! Our waitress was great and super attentive!!
Menu wasn’t big, we were there for lunch. Fries were very greasy, as were the chips for the cheese. Salad was good and so were the tea’s. Our waitress was a bit slow, had to keep looking for her. The building was beautiful!
Food was fair at best. Good / attentive server. Disappointed we were sat near restroom hallway (not in big Church room in photo). Shame on hostess knowing we had a reservation.
5Church has always been good but last night was exceptional. Really solid service and excellent food prepared to perfection!!!
High price for very little food. Food was mediocre.
Atmosphere was great but service was slow. We sat at our table for close to 10 minutes before a server came to ask what we would like to drink. Food was okay, but not the best. I've eaten some amazing food at great restaurants and this was not the greatest food for the price. I feel like you're paying for the atmosphere only.
The biscuits and gravy was better at Best Western. The bacon was terrible. My waiter was probably new. The only thing this place had going for it was it's decor. Overpriced, overrated and we won't be returning. It's a tourist trap.
On the other hand- The pizza place down the street at the hole in the wall was amazing. Some Italian named place with the letters "pizza" spelled vertically on the door. "Pizzeria de Giovanni" is the name.
I never write reviews… but I have to for this garbage if an establishment. Horrible. in so. Many. Ways. I travel often for work, go all over the country, eating out often. This is a tourist trap, with overly expensive food, and some of the worst service imaginable. Everything was over cooked, salty and dry. We got the fresh catch of the day, their risotto and French fries. Fries looked like they were cooked yesterday and sat out all day. We asked for ketchup. Got none. Risotto was rice.. and beans. It was awful. Fish was soooo salty and over cooked. Our waiter came by twice the entire time. To take our order and drop off the check. We barely ate any of the meal and he didn’t give a crap to ask why. We couldn’t flag him down to even try to explain why we weren’t eating the meal. My husband finished his first drink and we sat trying to wave him down to order another and finally gave up. I DO NOT recommend this place to even your worst enemy. Probably some of the grossest food I’ve ever had. Don’t waste your time and money there is sooo many great places to eat in Charleston, please avoid this place! Go elsewhere.
Loved our cocktails, our wine and our entrees. All was wonderful and what an amazing setting!
The menu is a bit limited but still varied. Oddly they ran out of a few menu items and it was rather early in the evening which was disappointing. The service was on point and extremely professional.
Overall food quality and presentation were well done and inventive. The ambiance is noisy so don’t expect an intimate dinner experience.
Server was great. Knowledgeable and lots of fun. Ravioli were disappointing. I know al dente but these were plainly undercooked. Duck was really good, earthy and flavorful. Citrus tart was under baked. Expected more but in these times all places are struggling.
We ordered the House Ramen with pork, and pork chops. The Chef graced us with his exceptional hummus! Our waiter was knowledgeable, patient and kind. We had a wonderful 31st Anniversary celebration!
Reed was a wonderful server offering great suggestions. I was upset that the croissant was out while I visited but I had a lamb burger which was nice too!
Our drinks and the coffee cake were amazing and set out expectations too high for the main dishes. Food was good just not great and lacked in flavor and presentation. Our server was definitely busy which delayed service but super nice and accommodating. I’d recommend coming here for drinks and apps and IG photos.
You know what we had a great family dinner - the place is fun and unique and the food and service overall were great. The only complaint I have is we had a 7:30 reservation, and the table for 7 was ready for us, but...we were pushed at every turn to get our entree orders in. It was pretty obvious they were anxious to turn over our table. We had a couple rounds of drinks, ordered three first courses as apps to share, but continued to be pressed to get entree orders in. We placed our orders, and it was no more than 10 or 15 minutes and we were served. Clearly they've got menu items "lined up." We were in and out of there in maybe an hour and 15 minutes. Seems quick for a $500 dinner tab with tip
The food was delicious but portions were very small for the prices, we both left still hungry
Horrible experience! Our waiter was perfectly fine but the food was awful. Rock hard biscuits, warm milk for gravy, the driest chicken we’ve ever had and soggy arugula in the salad. Drinks were nothing special at all (especially for $13). Had to ask multiple times for utensils and condiments. I know these are crazy times staffing wise but there were about 10-15 staff standing around near the kitchen at all times. Restaurant was nowhere near full. it seems like they were setting up for some sort of event but if it’s going to have an affect on service, they should close. We’ve been there before and had a great experience but yesterday was awful.
Food was horrible, but the service was good and good atmosphere- there are better brunch places in Charleston.
The vibe is awesome here!! We are visiting and it was one of our first restaurants to explore. From the ambience, the wait staff, the food-everything was superb!
We’ve dined here before and enjoyed the experience. This evening was disappointing. The guests were packed in like sardines and the noise level was very high. Our portions were small. The waitress was wonderful!
5 Church is a must every time we come to Charleston. Love the unique ambience, and the food is always fantastic!
Great lunch spot! Atmosphere was really cool..the building itself was awesome! Lunch menu was limited so the food came quick...but was really good. Would def eat there again!
Ambiance is unmatched. Food is good. Pricey for what you get.
We had a great time! The service was awesome and the food and drinks were delicious.
I was looking forward to going being a big fan of Chef Jamie, from Top Chef. I was not disappointed. Great food, good service. Happy customer.
Great atmosphere, fun place to eat
Great cocktail and food! Can’t wait to visit again.
The table was dirty that we were sat at, the food was fair and overpriced.
Food was great. Our waiter was outstanding and gave us a lot of information about the restaurant. Definitely would recommend!
This place is fantastic. It’s worth it just to see the inside. I’ve probably been here 10 times over the last 2 years which says a lot but the issue I’ve had the last 3-4 times is they are out of most of the food early in the night. Always the ravioli, the Raman, and others. I know easy to blame covid supply issues but the Thai and Italian restaurants in town seem to have noddles and pasta! The staff is great. The hostess’s are probably the best around due to they actually know what’s going on and how to move people around well. I don’t ever write reviews but felt the need to. To many good restaurants in town to be upset over something. Probably time to separate church and state.
