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.

We had a fabulous time! The ambience was eclectic and inviting, the food for their Thanksgiving menu was delicious, and our waiter, Dave, made the whole experience even better! He was personable, gave great suggestions and was very attentive! We would love to return to try out the regular menu when we are back in town.

Food was excellent and the staff gracious and attentive on a very busy day. Drink’s Tito’s & Tonic were weak and underwhelming! For 15.00 not worth ordering a second. Dessert the Pumpkin bread pudding was over the top! I would definitely recommend!

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.

My daughter and I enjoyed a delicious three course Thanksgiving dinner. She chose the wine pairing for each course. Our total visit was 1.5 hours, we were not rushed. Each course came out timely. The layout of 5Church accommodates groups of various sizes.

Food was fine but the experience was terrible. Was served the wrong entree. Sides were completely forgotten. Both cocktails were disgusting. They were very busy and everyone was super nice but it was like 8 mistakes too many. Would never spend a holiday there again.

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.

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.

Enjoyable evening with coworkers in town for a meeting. Don't miss the mussels and the steaks were great. Only disappointment was the poor beer selection; they were out of most popular brands.

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.

Was a bit disappointed. Tried the suggested mussel appetizer and it was very fishy, not the best. Caesar salad was odd - the egg was a nice touch but really just uncut romaine lettuce. Wasabi crusted salmon was good Albeit a bit overdone.

Sadly, not worth the money. Also, bathrooms smelled like sewerage, not what I would expect for such a nice place.

My review is for Saturday brunch so it may be a totally different kitchen staff compared to dinner. The crab cakes and poached egg were very tasty and the house fries nicely done, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed her omelet. It was more of a good pub food experience than a fine dining one, so it depends what you are looking for.

The ambience is fantastic. The food was fabulous. The only negative for me is it got very busy and therefore very noisy. So for a business dinner it is not the best for that. But I will definitely be back for a personal/leisure visit!

Energetic atmosphere and amazing food. We got the seafood tower. Salmon crudo and seafood salad were perfect. Blue crab and lobster were good but not great. Overall it was a very good presentation and great value. NY strip was cooked perfectly. The service staff seemed overwhelmed. Generally had good knowledge of food and wine but were slow and forgetful. I was supposed to get a glass of cab with dinner but it never came. I’ll give them a pass due to Covid worker shortages.
