This place was disappointing from just about every angle. We went for brunch and had horrible service (waitress was rude, never refilled water, and seemed angry to be doing … her job?). We had the chicken biscuit and avocado toast and both were pretty terrible. The biscuit was burned with over cooked chicken and the avocado toast was just weird. Even the bathrooms were gross … it smelled like they’ve got a big plumbing problem in the ladies room.

I have been several times in the past but My most recent visit was with large group on a Friday night. We ordered several of the different cocktails and a variety of food. The food was absolutely amazing!! Everyone enjoyed what they ordered and there wasn’t a to go box in sight. I ordered the steak burger that was on special and it was phenomenal! I also tried the fried chicken and Delmonico which were both delicious.

Our actual server wasn’t the most attentive. However, everyone else was so helpful! There were several other servers who helped out (including one manager) with our group and they were all great! They were friendly and eager to assist with our group. I will definitely be back again

Reserved a table for 11 for Thanksgiving at 8:30pm, not realizing they closed at 9pm. The first contact with our server took about 15 minutes, and that was just to take our drink order. After that, we weren't approached until after 9pm to tell us the kitchen was closing, so we needed to get all of our orders in now. This would have been nice to know upon being seated so we could have been prepped and ready.

Shortly after getting our food order in, we finally got our first drink order, only to be told the bar was making last call, so we all had to order a second round right after receiving our first round.

The food itself was delicious...everyone spoke highly of it. My biggest issue was that I don't think it was worth a $60 pre-fixe. And there were a few items that had a surcharge not mentioned on the website menu, making it a $70 pre-fixe.

Overall, I would most definitely come back as the food and drinks were great, but probably not for another holiday. The group felt a little ignored as we had to wait around 15 minutes between each server interaction.

Family Thanksgiving meal at 5Church: Three courses, $60 per adult. The food was very good and the hostesses were pleasant and competent, but there were a few rough spots. Some servers appeared overwhelmed and unfamiliar with procedures. The noise level impaired table conversation. We were not served an included dish for the table until we asked. We requested bread to accompany the meal; the waiter told us they did not have bread. (I then asked for crackers which were brought.) I must compliment the woman who exceeded expectations to correct problems and make things right at our table. Since this was a special event, "hiccups" might be expected.

Five Church has been our favorite Thanksgiving restaurant for years, but we think we may try a different place next year. This year was a little disappointing. Servers were overwhelmed, but still were warm and friendly. We waited too long for things. We didn't get our mashed potatoes until we had mostly finished our meal. My silverware disappeared and took too long to be replaced. I shared a knife with my daughter. In the past, every morsel we ate was amazing, but this year, there were a few things that I didn't like or eat. DO get the chocolate doughnut for dessert!

Dinner was perfection. Our waiter, Sarah, was welcoming and efficient. The manager stopped by twice to ensure we were happy. We both had the Filet and it’s delicious. Our last visit was over 2 years ago. Despite the trying times of the pandemic where many businesses are struggling with staffing and service, I think 5Church is even better. We didn’t think that was possible, but they improved on perfection.

We joined 5 Church early on a Sunday evening after a Panthers game, as we were waiting for the car park to clear out. There were reservations available last minute given the time and day, and we figured - why not give it a try!

We did not order any drinks, but we did get a few food items: cauliflower (tasted so good, like chinese chicken - that sounds like a joke, but it legitimately tasted like yummy tender chicken in a chinese sauce you would get with takeout! So good), and the truffle mushroom gnocchi (this dish was completely fantastic and reasonably priced given the addition of truffle). We finished off our little meal with the creme brulee, which was delicious with so many fun textures and flavors.

Our server was very attentive. We sat upstairs, right by the kitchen - which would not have been my first choice on a nice night out, but we didn't mind.

The ambiance was amazing. The food was AMAZING! I definitely was not expecting it to fall in love with it. My husband and I went for his birthday brunch and we both ordered the mimosa flights. I got the chicken karaage and the shrimp and grits. My husband had the brunch burger and he loved it.

Bad experience. The service was terrible. We had 6:00 pm reservations. We had appetizers and a drink and then ordered our entrée. By 7:30 our entrées had not arrived and we told our server that we had to go and to bring our check. The manager came and apologized, comped our appetizers and drinks and gave us a $75.00 gift card. Not sure if i will ever go back and use it though.

Chose this restaurant after googling best Chef in Charlotte as I was hoping for a great culinary experience that represented this city. Octopus was overcooked and chewy, fried chicken app was no better than kid’s chicken fingers at a fast food restaurant. Spicy cauliflower side was so so, 60 second cast iron steak was tender, but had zero seasoning and was bland as could be. Cherry sauce completely overpowered the bland steak.
