My husband and I are on a roadtrip for our honeymoon and this was by far my favorite part of the trip so far! Amazing views, great service and really good food.

Certainly a good enough experience but the menu feels like it is in need of an update. When you pay 40 dollars for 4 scallops they should be U-8s not U-12s and they should feel unique and perfectly cooked.

We had a wonderful dinner at 5 Church. The staff was friendly and very familiar with the menu and history of the beautiful church. The presentation of the food was amazing. Oysters were ice cold, fresh and delicious!

Got seated in the side room where we couldn't even see the main inside attraction. Food was overpriced and quality wasn't the best. Plenty of better restaurants within walking distance of 5church.

It was a fantastic experience and I look forward to returning in the near future to enjoy the evening atmosphere. Our server Sam was PERFECT. Our drinks were spectacular as well as the food. They took care of my food allergy with no complaint. My new favorite place.

Amazing! We knew we were going to have a good time for our Anniversary, but this was incredible! Having made a reservation, we expected to have more of a secluded space instead of right in the middle of everything. So placement could've been better, but everything else was over the top! The food was simply outstanding!

At first I was disappointed because they were out of the vegetarian menu item I ordered. The chef, however, fixed me up with a rice and vegetable medley that was delicious.

Atmosphere was great, food was even better. Try the handmade ravioli if it’s available. We added the sausage and it was great.

Dishes tasted confused. Sand in the scallops, and stems on the blueberries in the compote.
They were out of the advertised port as well. Overall very disappointing experience.

We had a reservation and were placed in the side room. We watched multiple people get seated before us in the main room and knew that they we’re walk-ins as they were coming from the bar. Obviously one of the main reasons for wanting to eat at this restaurant was to experience the ambiance and beauty of the church and when you make a reservation and don’t get that its very disappointing. While the food was excellent, the restaurant should do a better job at accommodating those that make reservations in the main room and all walk-ins in the side area.

worth going just for the venue. An old "sailor's church" converted to the restaurant. Passages from a famous book painted all over the ceiling. Great food also!

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.
