It was very loud in the non main part of the church room they put us in. A loud Bday party was right next to us not a good first impression!

This was the worst restaurant meal I’ve ever had in Charleston. Food was tasteless and served cold. The service was indifferent.

My husband and I went for brunch for our second wedding anniversary. Unfortunately we were sitting very close to the couples on either side of us and felt like we could not engage in conversation. Our food did not come out until almost 40 mins after ordering it. Not sure if they were short on staff but the service was just super super slow. It seemed the staff accommodated larger parties first (even when we arrived and seated well before a large party arrived).

Food was great. Service was not as great as the food though. Took forever to get table when we had reservations. Plates not brought before appetizers. Silverware before entree forgotten. Our server was great though. It was good but not my favorite in Charleston.

We came at 3:00 for a 3:15 reservation and we got seated at 3:45, that was okay. We were there for a bachelorette party. After waiting at the bar for drinks, no one ever served us. Once we had sat down, we waited another 30 minutes before we had drinks brought to us. After that, we drank the entire time we were there, ordered appetizers, and some people ordered off the brunch menu which was the only menu available until 5:00 pm. Some of the others didn’t want brunch so they decided to wait until 5 to order off the dinner menu. After 4:55, the waiter came up to us and said we needed to go ahead and order our meals because we needed to be out by 6:15 so they could flip the table. I questioned the manager and asked him what was going on as the restaurant was EMPTY. The manager then laughed in my face and said they were very busy although we could still make reservations on the app and there was a lot of empty tables. We have never been treated as horribly in a restaurant as we did tonight. We will never recommend this restaurant to anyone and it is a disgrace. the water tasted terrible. I can’t believe a waiter (the 2nd one) was so nice and a manager was so unprofessional. I don’t know if I have ever been laughed at for a 68 dollar tab for fries and alcohol (not including tip)! This place needs to come to my home town and take some notes on how to treat people. This restaurant may not close over my review but they won’t be open long. Just another failed restaurant on line. I also found it funny but on the menu they asked for you to buy the kitchen staff a 6/12 pack of beer. They strangely were a lot more affordable then the ones I was buying!

Would not go back at 1:00 on a Saturday. Too noisy and crowded. Food was good (crab Benedict was outstanding). Service very good. However, even with a reservation we were seated at the first table in the smaller room directly in the doorway. Cold and breezy every time the front door opened. One of our party ate in her coat. We will go back, but at a different time and day.

Food was not impressive. Beautiful building, decor and sub par food. Pork chops were tough, fatty and waiter only credited a glass of wine (half the cost) of two pork chop entrees.

Specifically asked the waiter twice for no mayonnaise on two items. They both came with mayonnaise all over them. No apologies. 15 minutes later after having to lose my cool to the manager they finally show up. Apology for the confusion I was told by the manager. No confusion just a bad waiter who didn’t listen, didn’t check on what he served us and didn’t apologize. Terrible. Oh. And our guest was reticent to eat his meal until ours was served and had a cold meal.

Great food in a beautiful space. It was noisier than usual because of the live music which made it difficult to have a quiet conversation.

Gorgeous restaurant. Excellent service. Food was skimpy, tough, and mediocre at best. Get a good chef and it will be a top notch establishment. Won’t return until.

Server needed more practice learning the details of the menu items from the food to the ingredients in the specialty drinks . They did offer good service recovery when they forgot to bring out the side item and when we Ordered a dessert that they no longer had on the menu ,they did comp for their errors. Food itself was very good quality just needed sever to give more attention to detail . The s’mores cake was an excellent second choice dessert.

I was completely disappointed. We ordered 2 Bloody Marys and was charged an additional 2 dollars per drink. When we questioned the reason for the additional charge, we were told it was for the alcohol. At $9.00 per drink, we assumed it would include the alcohol ( our server never mentioned this option when we ordered them). Food was mediocre at best and we will never return. There are so many better options in Charleston. They should be ashamed of themselves... ridiculously overpriced. This is the first time I have written a negative review of a restaurant.

My 2nd time and the food was as good as I had remembered. The highlight were actually the low country cup oysters. However, I was initially disappointed as they tried to seat us in an adjoining area next to the main area. Upon request they moved us to the main area, which is half of the experience as the other area totally lacks the same ambience.

Food was great, but we were about 90% sure our waiter was high. No need for a reservation when we went, as there were only about 8 other people in the entire place for lunch that day. Will probably not go back, as there is a plethora of other places in Charleston to eat.

Noise level was low as we went for an early lunch but I imagine it could be loud. Just a beautiful space, good food and great drinks at a reasonable price.

Had a great time at 5Church! They really made my birthday one to remember. We were lucky enough to go there during their Halloween Party and they really went all out! The food was great, the service was thoughtful, the ambiance was great, and a special shout out to our server Ty who really was a great sport!

Enjoyed a great meal at 5Church. What made it great:
Service: Had an outstanding server who knew the menu well
Food: Relatively small but appealing menu.
Environment: Great vibe but can get a bit loud, not a good place to have quiet conversation.
