Open environment that can provide service to many guests and still not feel crowded. Service and host team provided attention when warranted and never hovering. Good energy and easy to carry on conversations.

I would recommend 5 Church to a friend because the venue is so cool. However, that being said, the food was not as good on my last visit as it has been in the past. Was just not that impressed with the menu. Maybe it was the menu, maybe it's because it was a Monday night - don't know. It was, however, off the mark.

Took my boss here for his 50th and it was hugely disappointing. Although our server Kenneth was great, our food was cold. My leg of lamb and my wife’s filet were cold. Obviously they were setting out too long before they were served. My wife went hers back - I did not. What we got in return was a free dessert with “sorry your food was cold” written on the plate. Considering this is supposed to be one of the best in Charleston and it’s $$$$ it failed. We have eaten at the Charlotte location and it’s always been wonderful.

We went to 5Church for their lunch menu. The ambiance of the setting was outstanding with a lot of art and ecclectic decor to take in. The service was outstanding with a lot of attention. The food had tremendous flavor and creativity. The bartender whipped up excellent cocktails that was the perfect touch for our meal. We will definitely go back there again.

I took my niece for her 18th birthday and it was fabulous! The food was so fresh and delicious - the sushi tots and the meatball app are not to be missed ! Our server was fantastic - very knowledgeable about the finer details of both wine and food! Will be back!

In the heart of Charleston. Liked the experience but wish our server was more attentive and need to be prompted a lot. He seems nice but as a server customer service and attentiveness is a must. Beautiful place and food is great!

A very well refined atmosphere with a menu to match. No detail on the 5 star menu was overlooked or misplaced. Staff was very professional, punctual and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend if you are in the area and I look forward to my next Charleston trip to revisit this amazing establishment.

Because the Open Table website compromised our reservation for 7 people 5 Church stepped up and made our evening wonderful. They didn’t have to go the extra effort, but so impressed when a business does go the extra mile; not many do that today. The food was awesome! Will return many times. Thank you 5 Church! Happy Holidays.

The hostess was very pleasant and we were seated right away. The server brought water quickly and was very friendly even though we only wanted to drink water. Both of us got the Lamb Burger and it was excellent as were the hand cut fries that came with the burger. The restroom was clean and orderly.

It was just the two of us for Thanksgiving so we decided to try 5Church.
Charley was our waiter and he was cheerful, pleasant and informative, telling us a little about the building. He was knowledgeable about the meal and helped us decide what to choose since this was our first visit. The food was great!

I made reservations at 5CHURCH in Charleston 5 weeks before Thanksgiving after calling to see if they could make my wife a plate of veg (she’s a vegan). They said it was no problem, so I made the reservation via Open Table with a note saying we had called and understood a vegan plate would be okay. Two days before Thanksgiving, “Telula” called me to confirm we were still coming. She confirmed again that a vegan plate would be no problem. We drove 3 hours to Charleston, arrived 5 minutes early and had to wait for half an hour before being seated (while other guests were seated immediately). We told the server about the vegan plate, and she became irritated and said my wife would only receive a salad and that nothing off of the prix fixe menu was possible. I explained patiently and politely that I had spoken twice with the restaurant and would it be possible to simply ask the chef about a vegetable plate. The server became angry and left. A manager appeared to ask what the problem was. She said of course they could make a vegetable plate and that she wasn’t sure why the server responded as she did. We were grateful - if a bit confused as to what the issue had been. We received indifferent, somewhat cold service for the rest of the meal. We didn’t need any other accommodations. The food was fine, but the attitude ruined the experience and she obviously didn’t offer us coffee. She presented the check while we were still eating and said they needed the table. On the check, she had charged us for a more expensive wine than the kind we ordered. She agreed to fix it, but I wasn’t surprised that it happened. We were dressed up, consistently polite and treated poorly. The manager saved a bad experience from getting worse, and I’m grateful to her for intervening but I’ll never go back. If you’re having a bad day, I understand but don’t take it out on the customers.
