5Church is awesome, y'all! I recently visited for dinner on a Thursday night. We started off with a round of cocktails. The Viper is true to its name. I loved the blend of tequila, cucumber, and cayenne pepper. For a starter, we noshed on the tuna tartare and pastrami-cured hamachi (think sushi-grade fish thinly sliced and topped with a radish garnish). Both were delicious. We then had the charred octopus, which was perfect. For entrees, we shared a few of the main courses including the filet with mashed potatoes (classic) and a vegetarian special: mushroom sausage. I'd never had anything like that before which wasn't tofu and I was pleasantly surprised. With our meal, our server helped us pick out a lovely bottle of pinot noir. Service was great. The whole staff at 5Church Atlanta aims to please. Also, 5Church just started lunch service, so I'll have to get back down there to see what's on the menu. I highly recommend this place - it's as good as it gets in Midtown ATL.
Loved the ambiance as soon as I walked in. I wasn't expecting the dark wood, candles, and cool vibe of the restaurant.Bailey was our server for the evening, and she was awesome. She went over the extensive menu and offered suggestions on what to try out. I appreciated the fact that she was really engaging throughout the entire meal.The music...was so not expecting the music that was played. Outkast, Ludacris, Biggie--I heard songs I haven't heard in the longest time. So dope!Okay, the food. I had the Salmon Belly, which was great and tasted very fresh. I also ordered the Scallop and Avocado roll. I just wish there were more than 6 pieces. But it also worked out because the menu's more tapas-style, so you need to save room for more food. I asked for the Miso Sake Kama (honey miso marinated salmon collar), but they ran out as I waited for it. So I tried the fried squid legs--not bad.This spot is definitely being added to my usual rotation.

I had really high hopes for 5Church. Cool location, awesome decor and an interesting menu. After having been twice, now, though, I can't say I'll be going back.The food is average - good, but the portions are so small for what you're paying for. I'm not trying to spend a fortune on an appetizer and salad. They also still have a few things to work out in the kitchen - they brought us a vegan dish with bacon on it, for instance. I'm hoping they can expand the lunch menu to be comparable to their other locations - the one now is super limiting. Hopefully they are still working out kinks and will be able to show us a better experience next time.
Great alternative to fast food, in the heart of Buckhead! It's like a Mediterranean Chipotle, but healthier. The concept is very simple yet genius: Pick your base (leafy greens/grains/sandwich bread), choose your protein (chicken/shrimp/portobello), and pile on your favorite toppings. It's a great way to sneak veggies and flavor into your meal, without going over your calorie count for the day (if you're counting those). This place is open for lunch and dinner, and each meal comes with the tastiest sweet potato chips: They're thin and savory and delicious! More details here: http://bit.ly/1twyZm4
