I had a reservation for 3pm. Got sat right away waited 30mins just for water. Ordered at almost 4pm and was told they had no grits. My sis order something different and 20mins later only her food came out. She had to eat with her fingers because she had no silverware. So we canceled our food I tended to go somewhere else and while waiting for the check our order came out including the shrimp and grits. So we ate at 4:45pm. Glad we had nowhere else to be that day. But I felt bad because I picked the place to eat. Mgr never came to apologize for any of it even though we could see him walking around.

The restaurant was very loud and we had a hard time hearing each other. The condiments we requested from the food runner never made it to the table and my unsweetened tea was sweet. Food in general was good and I’ve enjoyed the restaurant on other occasions I have been there.

First let me start off by stating the venue is absolutely gorgeous! The staff and even the outside security were so polite and professional. I was very pleased with the ambiance I just wasn’t impressed with my food. My husband ordered crab legs which were about $32. Needless to say it was about 2 pieces of crab (see picture) ! The price just didn’t justify the portion in our opinion as we have been to similar places with the same options and got more. We joked that we were paying for a bowl of ice. Next on the list were the turkey meatballs and they were too dry! The presentation was really nice but the taste was underwhelming. I ordered the lamb burger which was really delicious. Lastly, we got a few drinks from the bar which seemed really watered down. Not bad but not great either. Overall, I would definitely go back to chill and hang out but I wouldn’t order food. They did have a desert menu which looked appealing but we didn’t chance it. This is a nice place but again I wouldn’t go there to eat. I really felt like we wasted about $130. Not to mention we had to stop on the way home and get late snacks because everyone was still hungry.

The food was A+ - and I'm glad I finally got a chance to eat here.

Not sure if our waiter was new, the kitchen was just backed up, or if it was just a crazy night - but our service was extremely slow and there were a few hiccups. Our cocktails didn't come until our dinner arrived, the waiter forgot to put our dessert order in, and then it took three different staff members to get us silverware so we could eat our dessert. (Not enough to ruin the experience - just enough to slow us down when we were ready to dig in!!)

This place has a great atmosphere, later in the night they had a fun DJ spinning 90’s & 2000’s hip hop & r&b. The service was great. The food was good but very limited menu. We ordered Manhattans & they were served in very, very small glasses. At $15 a piece I would have expected a normal pour.

A very hit or miss dinner. Overall, the food was very good. Turkey meatballs, lamb burger, and sea bass were all very good and well presented. The issue was the service. Restaurant was approximately 30% capacity, but it took forever to get our first drink. Which was odd as there were four people working behind the bar. after asking about our wine order twice, our server said forgot to turn our bottle order in. As we were almost finished with our mains, we cancelled the wine.

One of the managers brought the bottle over anyway and comped it. He was apologetic and from my perspective this was a very nice gesture and made a mediocre experience better. The server was either new or not trained properly. At this point, I honestly think restaurants,, even higher end restaurants, would be better off letting diners order from their phone and skip the servers. They really seem to be the weakest link in most restaurants.

Very disappointed in the service. Even with reservations, the wait was long to be seated and even longer on drinks/food. 3 out of 4 of us had the entire order wrong. Overall was not a good experience. The staff seemed like they may have just been trained the day before.

Had a late dinner reservation and it took an extra 15 minutes to get seated. Took a while to get drinks and get service once we were seated. Overall, the service wasn't very good but the quality of the food more than made up for the bad experience with the service

This is a peculiar place. Very expensive - think Morton’s prices for steaks. Although food is great - the ambulance has a lot to be desired. It’s loud - and when 10 pm rolls around it turns into a full on club//bar with loud dance music. Did the prices you would expect a nice dining experience, not a club-like atmosphere. This particular evening we were told the kitchen was overloaded and it would take a lot of time to get our food. That probably wouldn’t be bad if the ambulance wasn’t so loud. I recommend this to the young 20s crowd if you can afford it. Not a place for a date or conversations.

I had a terrible experience at 5Church Charlotte and will not be back. I heard great things and figured it would be a good place to take my family when they visit- worst decision of their entire trip. The service was AWFUL! I will not mention the waitress's name on a public forum but she was not fit to be a waitress. My father ordered a glass of wine and she brought the carafe of wine but no wine glass. We had to constantly ask a busboy for water because we would sit for long periods of time without anyone coming over to fill them back up. We ordered appetizers and then waited at least 30 minutes after we were finished for our waitress to even come over and take our dinner order. My family was so frustrated that we were going to ask for the check and leave after our appetizers. We continued to wait and wait and wait without any attention from our waitress. We spent over 2.5 hours at this restaurant and it was not because we were having a good time. The food was ok. Don't order the "jumbo" shrimp appetizer, it was not even close to "jumbo." As for the sides, we were told that they feed 2-3 people, which they definitely DON'T. Don't order the broccoli side dish, it could have been made by a 10 year old- bland and boring. The only good thing that happened during the duration of our reservation was when we all got up to leave. We will not be back.

Very unique and beautiful dining experience! We had an anniversary meal here and we thought it was well worth the extra money. Delicious food, awesome service, and perfect location to our hotel downtown. They even provide a complimentary truffle per person with the check :) Just enough to have a sweet little treat after your meal! Highly recommend to anyone that's looking for a cool spot to splurge for a special occasion!

We have been to 5Church before for brunch, a couple of times. We’ve been waiting for them to open post-COVID. Maybe we should have waited longer for them to work out some kinks.

We had reservations at 6:30 and arrived just before. We were seated fairly promptly but then waited another 15 minutes (!!) to be greeted by the server. We were about to walk out when she came over with water (despite being near our table three times before). We decided to overlook this, hoping things would improve. Things did not improve. We ordered a beer and a cocktail, as well as charcuterie board ($42!! for three meats and four cheeses with some bread). Our drinks took another 15-20 minutes to get to the table. Per our server, the bar was backed up. A second round took nearly the same amount of time. BF ordered the lamb burger with fries, and I ordered the miso-crusted salmon. We were told these were the two most popular dishes. BF loved the lamb burger, and the fries were amazing! The miso salmon, however, was not the greatest - the “crust” was soggy and not a good texture at all (though the salmon underneath was cooked very well!). On the whole, drinks were good (once received), food was hit or miss, and service was poor (though I presume this was more bar than server, possibly).
