My daughter had the most wonderful time dining here. We did experience a few delays in seating and being waited on, however, the Manager and waitstaff were quick to resolve this. We appreciated it so much. We will definitely come back for another visit when we are in Charleston. PS: Many thanks for the complimentary bottle of wine.

We had a great time at 5 Church. We celebrated a birthday and our waiter brought out a delicious chocolate dessert with a candle for the birthday girl! So sweet! She was surprised and it topped off a nice meal.

We had a private outside room near front entrance at 10:45 for brunch. It was a perfect private room for 4. The meal was outstanding. Loved the regular breakfast items and the French toast was awesome. The pineapple mimosas were great as well as the Bloody Mary’s.

This restaurant was our favorite of the trip- the ambience and interior are unique and added to our dining experience. We appreciated the level of service from our Server, who was kind enough to speak to the kitchen about creating a Vegan dish for our daughter. Overall, the food was very good and we will definitely return the next time we're in Charleston.

We booked a table for 8 to celebrate my dad’s 80th birthday. We had outdoor seating, and the back patio was gorgeous. The food was excellent- every thing we ordered was cooked to perfection. I am glad we had outdoor seating, because I think indoors may have been a little too loud for our group. But it seemed like a fun vibe indoors as well, and the building was beautiful. I highly recommend this place!

Visited two times in two days. Very cool place. Ambiance is incredible. Waitstaff is very knowledgeable and prompt. Drinks are well made, charcuterie, pimento dip were excellent. Burger may have been one of the best I have ever had. I love a restaurant that has energy and this place has it, may be to loud for some. Overall great experience.

Our experience was horrible. It came highly recommended by locals. Got seated in only outdoor table. Out of chicken and ravioli. Forced to choose something we didn’t want. Food came cold. Will not recommend to anyone.

Eight main courses on the menu, and they ran out of two of them. If your options are limited and exclusive, and your business is upscale and operates on reservations, then you can ensure you have enough food. Though we didn’t get our first choices, the food, service and ambiance were very nice.

Was excited to eat here and was seated in the back room, with no view of the actual church space in the bar. No where did it indicate that we needed to request to be seated in a specific space. We proceeded to order the “all you can eat crab bowl”, only to be told it wasn’t actually all you can eat. Then we proceeded to order the ravioli, only to be told it was sold out (at 6:45 on a Tuesday night). Overall, the menu was unimpressive, poorly executed and we ended up leaving. Before leaving we spoke with a few patrons who were seated at 5:00 with small children for dinner, who’s meals still hadn’t arrived at 7:00. This was the only unimpressive restaurant we experienced in all of Charleston and we’ve been twice in the past 6 months. Not worth the price or the time.

They don’t have a big menu and literally the 2 appetizers we chose were not available. Then my daughter who is a vegetarian ordered the ravioli (only veg option) and it was their very last serving? Food tasted ok, but some of the food came out Luke warm temperature which was a bummer. The best part of the experience was the waitress who was very nice and the ambiance/decor. But we would not recommend nor go back.

Had the hand braided ravioli and the wife had the fried chicken. Both were excellent. I could have used a little more of a portion but it was great. The homemade crackers and hummus were a nice touch. Overall a great experience.

Such a cool destination! We had enjoyed the previous restaurant in this location and are even more pleased with 5Church! The atmosphere and decor have this great vibe and being in a former church with the great windows is awesome! The staff were friendly, professional and efficient even though the restaurant was packed. Our food was delicious - we especially liked the Lamb Burger and the Fried Chicken BLT. Can't wait to dine there again!

The overall experience was lackluster at best. The food took FOREVER to arrive to the table and when it did it was bland and flavorless. The highlight of the meal were the cocktails. Don’t waste your money. Go someplace else.
