Diner Reviews
  • "Another nice dining experience with a great server."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Travelled from Alabama to eat brunch based on reviews of their eggs benedict. Originally, the hostess tried to seat us at table between two tables with infants. A stroller was taking up a large amount of space leaving the area around the 2 person table very crowded. We asked to be moved which they accommodated. We ordered the blue crab and the creole eggs benedict. The eggs were cooked correctly and the hollandaise sauce was not over powerful and complemented the seafood. Skip the side of potatoes, they lack flavor and were over done for my taste. The side of fruit was much more palatable. We also ordered the cinnamon roll which was good but half of the dessert was so hard you couldn't cut it with a knife."

  • "Excellent and friendly service. Many delicious food choices. Our favorite is the Memphis. My husband and I loved the bellinis."

  • "I've eaten here a number of times because it's convenient and has a nice atmosphere. Once in awhile the food is good but most of the times it's mediocre. This time the chicken was really dry and the dish was really a bad combination of things. The trout was better, but also over cooked."

  • "The menu constantly changes and is well thought out. The food is fresh and fabulous! I would recommend Chato to anyone. It is a little pricey, but worth it. You will not be disappointed."

  • "I was on leisure travel and came across a groupon! What an amazing deal!!!! The scallops and lobster risotto was amazing!!!! When I come back to Chattanooga, I MUST visit this restaurant."

  • "We love Chato! They have wonderful dishes and a great wine list. This is a wonderful restaurant to frequent for any occasion!"
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We chose this spot for date night. Food was terrific-comparable to other nice restaurants we often enjoy. The atmosphere was clean & modern. The location is next door to a park, so we stopped by after and it made a nice date night. We will add to our list of favorite places to frequent. "

  • "We had not tried Chat O yet, and Groupon had a $40 coupon for $20 that enticed us to go. The property is in a "hot" part of town, so there was an interesting assortment of patrons. The decor is contemporary. The hostess seated me promptly, and our server checked with me a couple of times before my wife arrived. That gave me time to study the menu and the wine list. They have a wide variety of entrees. They also offer small, medium and large plates. My wife chose the scollops on a lobster risotto. I opted for the "under the brick" chicken on a bed of sweet corn and vidalia onions. I had the ahi tuna nachos as a small plate to begin. All were good. The dinner ended with a fabulous dessert. Their signature dessert is lemon souffle-WOW!"

  • "The food was great! A little more than your average place to eat downtown, but you get what you pay for! The wine selection was more than enough and the cocktail list was short but had some great drinks. I will definitely be coming back!"
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "This is one of our favorite places in Chattanooga to eat. The food is always delicious. The service is outstanding. The bar has some great specialty drinks. Special requests are easily accommodated by the chef. We took some friends with us and they were impressed. They said they would definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/14/2014
  • "Delicious eggs sardou and mixed fruit side, watermelon gazpacho, cinnamon bread pudding and blood orange bellini. Prices are unbelievably low for food of this high quality. Terrific find."
    Dined on 5/4/2014
  • "We have been many times for dinner but never for brunch. It was delicious! Love the high tops for 2 of us and also a great place for a big group. We took our supper club there the other month. 10 of us. The staff is always so wonderful."
    Dined on 4/27/2014
  • "This place is very nice and the food is fantastic. However when you pay $20 for a large plate I expect to be full. This was not the case, the portion of food was so small we actually went to another restaurant afterwards for more food. "
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "While we didn't expect a crowd on Wednesday evening, we knew from past experiences that the food would live up to our expectations. The scallops and desserts were delightful, though whoever chose the monotonous music on satellite must have been a twenty-something who loves annoying drum machines. Please put on some timeless jazz or other more appropriate music, which will greatly improve the ambiance."

  • "My husband and I went after reading reviews and checking out the menu. We got their early, I mean early, like 6:15. We sat at the bar. My husband and I each ordered a drink and it took FOREVER. To the point I was looking around to see if they needed help getting my beer and my husbands cocktail. Nothing complicated but it took, no joke, over 10 minutes. We ordered the mussels from the medium plate menu and they were delicious. We then ordered our entrees. I got the duck and my hubby got the flank steak.my duck was good but the huge side salad, essentially, that came with it was a bit much. I was craving a startch which it did not have. The flank steak was not good. It was overcooked and I think they were trying to treat it like a prime rib."
    Dined on 4/22/2014
  • "Love the industrial feel. Service was solid. My fried chicken was dry, but the veggies that came with it were amazing. Cheap cocktails. Gray value."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Food was excellent - service was indifferent - 15 minutes to get drinks"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food is good, but the soufflé is fabulous. I may go back just for cocktails and soufflé."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "The unique pairings with every item we ordered were very pleasing. We enjoyed caesar salads, wine, dinner trout (chorizo hash) and the filet (caramelized onion mashed potatoes) and the souffle featured dessert this visit was lemon with lavender. Simply wonderful and fresh throughout. Always excellent service, very attentive staff and owner(s) on floor to greet you. Convenient to downtown and park with ease."

  • "Incredible drink creations. Great bartender. Delicious food of appropriate proportions and well presented. Sunday brunch is the best and most affordable eal!"

  • "Best souffle I've ever had. Great bar and food. Great people."

  • "Whenever I visit my parents in Chattanooga, this is the first place we think of for dinner. The menu and wine list are thoughtfully prepared. The food is always beautifully presented and consistently outstanding. The service is impeccable as well. I have been here for both brunch and dinner and I always leave wishing they had a location in Memphis! "
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "We probably would never have ventured over and found this place had it not been for groupon but needless to say we were very impressed. The food was good the drinks were funky and our server was friendly. The lemon soufflé is a must have and we will be returning for that!"
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "We had another great meal at the Chato. Mushroom soup was excellent. I had the chicken and he had the salmon, both were well prepared. Amber C our waitress was excellent and knowledgeable."
    Dined on 2/28/2014
  • "we had brunch on sunday at the restaurant, with a party of six people. our food was incredible, but the service was absolutely horrendous. our waitress rolled her eyes several times (that we all witnessed) as she made her way to our table. we waited 30 minutes for our drink order, and she brought the drinks two at a time. she didn't remember who had ordered which drinks, and we were not given nor offered refills until we asked for it. everything seemed like such a huge inconvenience to the waitress. while we would like to dine again at this restaurant since the food was so good, i am not sure that we will since we can get much better service at any number of brunch venues in town."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Every time I've taken someone to Chato Brassiere it is a memorable experience. The staff is always very professional, attentive without begin intrusive, they never fail to make wonderful suggestions in regard to the menu. The best dessert soufflees I have ever put in my mouth, and the flavor is consistently changing--I've never had the same flavor twice -- tiramisu is amazing! Perfectly cooked entrees, paired wonderfully with excellent side items; I HIGHLY recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Entire experience was superb. I had the filet with crab cake. Meat was cooked exactly as ordered. Oddly, the standout of the the night was the salad: wedge with tomato, blue cheese, onion rings, and bacon vinaigrette. The vinaigrette was perfectly tangy. Will definitely eat here again."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Always appreciate the staff and food. Have yet to have any meal that wasn't anything but a delight. Attentive staff from entering the door to leaving after a wonderful meal."

  • "Very nice place to dine, service has been always great and very friendly staff. I enjoy the brunch in particular. It's not your typical brunch, you order off the menu and I personally love the Chicago and any of the Benedict's. Mimosa 's are my favorite also. Highly recommend"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We have tried brunch all over the downtown area, and this is the one we keep coming back to! Especially if you like eggs benedict, this is the place to go, hands down. Top it off with their creative, tasty cocktails, and you will never be sorry you went!"
    Dined on 1/19/2014
  • "We had a great brunch but our server kept disappearing although it was very crowded at that time, overall a good experience."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal at Chato Brasserie. I had the Diver Scallops with lobster risotto. The risotto was rich and the scallops were perfectly prepared. My husband had the Short Ribs and a Caesar. He said both were really good and he liked the preparation of the salad. Our service was excellent both at our table and the bar. We will be back and highly recommend it."
    Dined on 1/11/2014
  • "What a wonderful restaurant for brunch; the different types of Eggs Benedict won me over. I will be back! The food is well-presented, fresh, and delicious. It is also reasonably priced - it is a gem."

  • "Had a great night out with my niece. We decided to do a taster's run thru the small and medium plates. The Steak Tartare was an incredibly tasty and rich bite. Sweetbreads were very good, everything really. There were 2 stars though. The Peanut Brittle Souffle with the butterscotch sauce...always, ALWAYS order the souffle here. Most importantly, L.T. provides unbelievable service. We sat and ate at the bar when we saw her there because she is that good. Highly recommend this place. As a lover of Chattanooga cuisine, it ranks among my "go to" short list."

  • "With its pricey menu by local standards, Chato Brasserie is more of a special occasion treat for us. We were the very first table seated for a 5:30 reservation. Service was excellent, as always. My wife's entree was excellent, though my filet mignon was badly undercooked (rare vs. medium requested, it was purple inside) and it still wasn't up to the proper temperature after additional broiling, though it was edible. We will be back, though I might try something other than beef for future meals. The chocolate dessert was very rich and more likely something to share rather than eat alone. We will be back."
