Returned to 5Church because my husband loves the 90 second steak and it was his birthday!

We were sat at a table in the corner right next to the server station but I was pretty surprised at how close our table was to the large party next to us. With covid in mind maybe a little more distance between tables would be ideal.

Our server was great, very personable! He suggested the Crudo which was delicious. Slightly disappointed in the amount of fish in the Crudo and thankful our server thought to order a side of crackers with it. The dish would have not been as good without the crackers.

My husband and I were both pleased with our steaks. I was surprised to see steak sauces slathered on the plate at such a nice restaurant. I would urge this to be placed on the side in the future.

Two more very notable things, one being the bathrooms. They need some love from management. Toilet seats broken off and toilets that are not attached to the ground. This is really not up to pair with this caliber of restaurant. Second, I was really thrown off by a line for “Kitchen Tip” to be on the bill. I have never seen this before and didn’t know proper etiquette for this. At a restaurant that is higher end I would assume that the restaurant is paying an hourly wage to the kitchen. I worked in hospitality for years and have never run into this!

Overall we enjoyed our meal but don’t feel that the value is worth it.

Memorable every step. Terrific cocktails, delicious app, filets done to perfection, wine pairing and dessert were superb. Our server, Joey, was excellent. We'll soon be back!

Service was extremely slow. We had to wait about 15 minutes past our reservation time only to be seated in the back directly beside the kitchen door and about a foot away from the table next to us…after I left a note that we were there for a birthday. Food was excellent but our waiter was not. We also were told that the mixed drinks are made with a splash of alcohol instead of a full amount. The tequila seemed nonexistent in our mules.

Went for restaurant week and found the options lacking. I ordered the salmon with lentils. The salmon was over cooked & dry. The lentils didn’t do anything for the dish, they were bland. The dessert was pineapple rum cake topped with coconut lime mousse. The cake was very dry ….. where was the rum??

If I could add more stars I would! Our experience at 5Church was wonderful. But the best part of our experience was our waitress, Iasia. She was so attentive and sweet, made great suggestions, and always ensured we were content with our meal. We'll definitely be back and we hope to see Iasia there again!

The food was good but over salted
Make sure you tell them how you want your protein cooked because they don't ask ..
Portions sizes could have been little more
Overall a good experience and service was great!

Nice place but it took 20 minutes for the waiter to ever come to the table so we sat with no menus water or anything. Finally came and took our order. Offered us free mimosas but didn't get them to the Hot able until after the food arrived. one order wrong but Waiter didn't come back to table for 10 minutes so I just ate it.

We were there for brunch. It was super loud. I had chicken gravy biscuit. It was overall really dry due to small amount of gravy.
Other meals were good

Went for Restaurant Week. Menu options were very good. We also paid extra for the wine pairings. Appetizers and wines were very good. However, I paid extra for halibut and was very disappointed in it....dry and no real treatment to it. Desserts were great and we were supposed to have a port as part of our wine pairing - we never got it. They did, however, remove the charge for one of our pairings to offset it.

I would definitely go back when it is not restaurant week - that is not the best time to gauge the quality of a restaurant like this.

Our reservations was at 6:30 we were seated about 20 mins later. The waiter did not come to our table for about 10 mins to greet us. We went during restaurant week so it was $35 per person. We got the salad to start with. It also took a while to get or salad. We then got our entrees. I got the short rib. It was very good.If I did not have the salad I would have felt like if I had the entree alone it would have not been enough. I also got the pineapple rum cake. I would not get this item again. My husband got the lamb burger and he enjoyed it but he did not like the fries. He got the s’mores dessert and that was pretty good.

Wonderful time enjoying restaurant week and my brothers birthday. Our server could have been more engaged and didn’t go through anything with us, but we’ve done restaurant week before so we knew how it worked on our own. Food was excellent- that pretzel chocolate dessert was AMAZING and needs to be a staple

This was my first time visiting 5 Church and it definitely will not be the last. Big fan of Jamie Lynch and wanted to try a new place during restaurant week and I was not disappointed in the least. Really cool vibe and atmosphere. The Lamb burger was amazing and that secret sauce was a great compliment to the fries. Can't wait for the next visit.

This place is loud, crass and a total disappointment. Food was mediocre. I ordered the avocado toast, bread was hard and dry. The egg came out 10 minutes late and wasn’t even a whole egg, it was three slices of a hard boiled egg.
Fried chicken sandwich was overly salted, greasy, and heavy.
The drinks are cheap and taste cheap.
People brunching there were dressed to go clubbing—showing off body parts that most of us would rather not see.
This was a regrettable visit, hope this review will spare you of same.

This was a last minute date night option for Restaurant Week, and the best last minute option we’ve ever made (last minute doesn’t usually go this perfectly). This restaurant is beautifully designed, service was fast and courteous from everyone that came to our table. Our waiter was fast, yet attentive to our needs, very knowledgeable of the menu and honest in his opinions of the menu, leaving us very satisfied with every choice we made based off of his recommendations. Definitely on the high price scale, but with service and food that amazing..it is worth every dollar!

Girls night out for Restaurant Week. Promptly seated and had great service. Each course was tasty, well portioned and beautifully presented. Personal opinion, lentils were too salty and salmon wasn’t seared well. A wine pairing was offered for each course, which was a nice touch. Noise level was not great for conversation but wasn’t offensive. 5Church didn’t slack on Restaurant Week menu like other places did.
