Great food. Great ambience. But poor service. Felt rushed out. Was given the check while plates were still in front of us.

Reservation was for 8:15, we were seated at 8:45 and didn't get our food until 10pm. That's unacceptable. Either have more cook staff or don't fill up all your tables if you can't handle the business.

Being from NYC I like restaurants that a SOHO or Village vibe to them. This place fits the bill.

The food was great but the service was poor. The first waitress was wonderful, but the change in shifts really ruined the service. No one came to check on us, not to offer drinks or anything else, or even the check. When they brought additional food items we ordered, they brought it with not utensils. Additionally, the restaurant ran out of two dishes. Three of us had to select other items, there was over 1.5 hours left for brunch to end, it was not a good sign a fifth of the options from the menu were not available.We were please they made up with a discount but I wish it could have been better given it was my mother’s birthday brunch.

First course (Grilled Octopus) was fresh and well-prepared but portion was small for the price. Mains were the problem. Wife's scallops were not hot, my "60 second" steak lacked any distinguishing flavor, I ordered it with fries and both sauces, but received the Yukon potatoes and only one of the sauces, and had to wait an inordinate amount of time for a glass of wine (the manager comped our dessert as an apology). Not 5Church's best night. Seemed understaffed, although not especially busy.

We sat for 1-1/2 hours waiting for our dinner. I think the waitress just wanted us to order more drinks. The food is great. Very noisy. We were a group of 10 and she never once asked in the 2+ hours that we sat there if I wanted a drink. I chose this place because they have an interesting menu and I had had a great lunch with a business colleague. This was a casual business dinner at the end of a long work day and so did not appreciate being seated at 7 pm and getting my dinner after 8:30 pm.

Very interesting decor and a gorgeous bar. Food was a bit pricey and the lobster succotash was very dry. The highlight was the "60 second" NY strip. The Tuna Tots were as great as suggested.

We were out for a special girls weekend with a reservation for 8:30. We were not seated until almost 10! Our waitress was very un personable and unfriendly. A manager/ host promised to make
Our experience right after our wait. I was never mentioned until I mentioned in at the end of dinner. The good was good but very over priced. The drinks were good but over all this was a terrible experience.

The food was outstanding (though the truffle Mac and cheese was very bland!). Our waiter was awesome, making many recommendations for drinks and food and he even gave us a complimentary dessert because we were celebrating a friends birthday and it was outstanding!!

The restaurant is located on a corner and we were seated in the front so the car lights were distracting and while the ambiance is very nice, we had to use the lights on our phones to even see the menu!

Came for Sunday brunch before a concert. Our reservation was at the end of the brunch time serving period and it felt a little like we got the leftovers. We have dined at 5 church on many occasions and everything was always top notch. Today it was just OK. Not bad. Not awesome. We will come back on a Friday or Saturday for a date night and hopefully it will be excellent again.

Brunch for 6. While we WERE late, we were able to be worked in and the service was exemplary! The wait for food was incredibly slow however and the food was average. The noise level was akin to a bar at 11pm so I would not go back expecting to hear anything said during a conversation.

After arriving, we tried to leave because of the noise level but our waitress moved us to a quieter area of the restaurant. Drinks were great, but our food didn’t arrive for an hour. We noticed everyone around us that ordered at the same time had received and finished their meal. When it finally arrived my salmon was undercooked, but I didn’t want to send it back. We skipped dessert because it was so late.

Mediocre food. Avoid the grouper. Collard greens and sushi rice balls were good. As were the fries. Nothing to write home about. And we were stuck at the worst table. Waiter was very nice and attentive.

Brunch was ok, eggs were over cooked for most in my group. They were very understaffed so service was a bit slow. Might try again for dinner, had heard great things but didn’t live up to my expectations.

5Church has always been a favorite Sunday morning brunch choice. We go almost every time we are in Charlotte visiting our daughter in college. The atmosphere and location can't be beat. The food is usually yummy and service on point, but not this time! The food was decent, but a few things have gone downhill. Some portion sizes and presentations were not as they have been before. The wait staff was over-worked due to people calling out, but the support staff of management and hostess were NOT stepping up to fill the void. Many items we requested like coffee refills, water, ketchup, etc. never made it even after asking several people including 2 hosts/managers. Our server was frazzled, but we did not blame him as it was obvious his support staff was not doing their job. Was a very unfortunate experience!
