Food was great and service was exceptional. The chef, Rebecca came out and spoke with us and even gave us a tip on where to eat the next night and she was spot on! The roasted filet was probably the best steak I have ever eaten. Misty (our server) was knowledgeable and did a great job. It was our 35th... More

Just passing through Chattanooga, TN and used TA to find a good restaurant. We were well directed, and fully enjoyed St. John's. Bartender knew how to make a good Old Fashion.

I DECIDED TO UPDATE MY REVIEW TO KEEP IT CURRENT! This restaurant never fails to impress! The last several visits I sat at the bar, where they serve the full menu but you don't need a reservation, as long as they have seats!! Best food, service and ambiance there is to be had!

This is the 2nd time we've been to St. John's Restaurant. It is wonderful again. The staff were very helpful and accommodating. They offered great advice and our meal was spectacular.

Strolled over here from hotel, based on reviews. Food was very good, a bit pricey, a little stuffy, but very good nonetheless. Would probably eat here on occasion if we were locals.

Dined there as part of a business dinner so I am unsure of the cost, but the food quality was excellent. The flounder with polenta was delicious but had strange pickled vegetables with it which I would not eat. However, everyone raved about the filet mignon and chicken. The squash with lobster bisque was amazing. Ambience was lovely.

Was expecting pretentious, expensive and over-charmed-with-themselves. Got incredible service, great atmosphere and probably the best high-end food I've ever tasted. Should be noted I've traveled extensively and have done fine dining pretty much around the world. Why it's not a Michelin starred restaurant I don't know. Probably because it's in Chattanooga.

How good is this Restaurant? I will only ALLOW my wife and I to go during our Anniversary since it is such a pleasure and this was the second Anniversary we dined here. Anything more would be indulgence of our baser desires. Fantastic service. Excellent cocktails. Mind blowing entrees and desserts that will introduce your tastebuds to unchartered and exciting...

My date and I dined here for his birthday dinner, and the celebration was intimately warm and savory. I ordered the flounder, which was delicately rich in soft, subtle flavors that gave it a mysteriously appetizing edge and hinted at Liquid Smoke, even though we were informed that Liquid Smoke was not an active member of the chef’s preferred ingredients....
