Menu limited. Salmondish was off. Not sure why you would use fennel and then destroy the taste of the fennel by dousing it with way too much mustard. Combined with beans and bacon made a very unappealing dish. Husband's lamb burger was good but don't need to go here for a burger.
Martini arrived with absolutely no garnish. Had to ask for olives

Service was poor. Food took an hour and came out barely warm. Manager was super nice and made us not pay for our bill, so the whole experience was average I’d say!

The ambiance of this place reminds me of that of STK. It’s very lively with loud music playing and people sort of socializing everywhere. Although there were kids eating at the restaurant, I don’t believe it’s suitable for children. Service was great. Food was...meh. Definitely not worth the price. I’m a foodie and have eaten all over the world. I only visited this place because I had a gift card. I would revisit for a “drinks with friends” night though. The drinks were amazing.

Awesome meal. Service was outstanding. Lighting was a little dark for my liking. I had to use my phone to see the menu. Still a great experience though.

My Sister's filet was overcooked, the manager offered to have it recooked, to which we said yes; however, the 2nd filet was also overcooked. I understand sometimes there are cooking errors, but given the second chance to make it right it should have been just that.

Thank you,

The server was terrible (had to ask for silverware, we had to ask twice for a glass of wine, didn't know who's steak was whose, and mumbled). On top of that, he told us we only had an hour because they had a party coming in. Terrible experience.

Everything was great, as always. my brother and his wife were in from out of town and just loved their meal and the service. I was only disappointed by the fact that they advertise a valet at 6 pm, I was there at 5;50 pm and asked the hostess inside what time they were starting the valet and she said that he was going to be real late tonight and I could park across the street for free. That was fine except it was pouring rain.

The host was horrible and very rude. She basically ruined our evening and caused us very bad experience.
Thanks giving dinner missed some items and was too expensive. Although the waiter was very nice and fair and restaurant is well designed, the overall experience was not great

As expected it was busy for Thanksgiving dinner. They had a set menu which was well thought out. 2 appetizer selections. One was a kale salad, the other a sweet potato soup. I chose the soup. A few minutes later the waitress came back saying they were out of soup.../only other option was a kale salad. That was disappointing, I ordered the ham dinner for the entree and we both ordered a side of mashed potatoes to share.
The meal came, the top half of the ham on the plate was not even warm, the bottom of the pile of ham, etc was hot. We didn’t get our mashed potatoes until we were approx 1/2 way through the meal....and once again they weren’t even hot....the gravy on the side was hot but the potatoes were not.
I realize they had a full house and can appreciate that - maybe the staff was overwhelmed, I’m not sure. Hopefully adjustments will be made so food will be served to the standard of 5Church.

We had a reservation and waited 30 minutes. The hostess was very rude. We were finally seated at a cheap card table that was right under a speaker and could barely hear each other talk. It was very disappointing that the restaurant changed the normal ambiance and setup cheap card tables and chairs to stuff more guests in. For $60 a person it was not what I was expecting. We all felt like we’d been sat at the kids table of a family thanksgiving. Bummer.

Even after planning ahead and making reservations, we were seated at the worst table in the restaurant. A table that should not even be where it is. It was in front of the door sitting by itself with no lights nearby. I wish we would have said something because the atmosphere overshadowed any thing positive about the food. Also, the hostess did not say anything to us when we walked and gave our name, and then just started walking away, I guess assuming we were following. Then we were summoned to our table from across the room. I am so frustrated with this dining experience.

We had a booking for 11am. We waited 15 mins and had to mention to staff that we had timed our brunch to make a flight time. There were lots of people waiting. They did try to accommodate us as quickly as possible but it made our time uncomfortable. However the server was fantastic as was the food.

We had brunch at 5Church this morning before the Panther's game.

The Good:
1. Booking through Opentable was easy and we were seated quickly.
2. The location was nice and convenient.

The Bad:
1. We were seated upstairs, and it seemed like there were only a couple of people up there taking orders and manning the upstairs bar.
2. I ordered a Bloody Mary and it arrived ~20 minutes later. It tasted "syrupy sweet". It was NOT a Bloody Mary.
3. I asked the bartender to please make me another. It arrived about 10 minutes later and was only marginally better than the first version.
4. I was with a party of 8. Half of the table received their drinks about 20 minutes after the first half did. The same thing happened when our food came out!
5. Our food was just "ok" but it was nothing fantastic. We had to ask for basics like ketchup for our home fries, salt and pepper, and butter for our toast, etc... Even that took a while to receive.

The place was packed with Panther fans so I suspect it they were understaffed and spread thin, but considering their proximity to the stadium I would have expected them to be prepared for that.

I though that the food was just ok. Me and my wife got the steak and scallops. The scallops were great but ordered lobster to go with it and got 2 tinie claws that were no bigger than a crawfish claw very disappointed in that. The steak was prepared in there own way where they don't flip the steak which made for a interesting steak. You could get any way you wanted it but I decided to try it their way and I'm sry to say it fell short of expectations . All and all the place was just ok a lot of money for just ok.

PRO
Energetic atmosphere, trendy interior design, ambitious menu, unique cocktail menu

CONS
Service was standoff-ish from the hostess to the wait staff.
The salmon dish was a great concept - but lacking in flavor.
Dishes were overpriced for the taste.

We went to 5Church before the theater and it was all generally fine. We were very early so there was no issue with waiting or slow service, in fact our service was great. But before we went I had been reading about cool or lukewarm food being delivered. It was funny (sort of) because my snapper was delivered at about room temperature, and after my wife started eating she mentioned that her pork pasta was not hot. We sort of laughed about it, and since the food was good, it wasn't a big deal. But you would think with this as a continued issue it would be addressed. Thankfully everything was good, but it would have been great if it as simply been hot! You all may want to invest in some sort of food warmer, or a better way of getting the food to the tables as soon as they are plated.

Have had good meals there before, but this time was disappointing. Sat down and bus person poured water. Then we waited for at least 15 minutes for a waiter. I finally went to find him. He did not offer specials. Said he would ask to speed up order so we could get to show on time. Dinner came about 35 mins later. He served it and never came back to check to see if we needed something.

The portions were very small for the price. The service overall was terrible. We were not checked on or received refills once our food was delivered. Our food was not good, which could have been fixed if our server actually came back.
