Best shrimp and grits I've
Best shrimp and grits I've ever had. I was disappointed with the salad and with the noise level. It was way too loud. Great service and we were seated immediately upon arrival even though it was just a few minutes before our reservation time.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary with dinner at the Easy Bistro. We found it to have a wonderful atmosphere with outstanding food. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in a romantic dinner or simply an upscale dining experience. Outstanding!

We Were celebrating a birthday. The staff had a signed birthday card sitting on the table when we arrived. The service was very very good the waiter was very attentive. The drinks and food were excellent. The decorations were very modern and the room was a little bit noisy. Overall we were quite pleased.

We were very disappointed
We were very disappointed in the Grilled Oysters, the shell was hot, but there was no sign of grilling in the flavor or texture. This was the main reason we choose this restaurant. also, the onion soup was very peppery.

We had an excellent meal here on a Sunday evening. Restaurant was only half full so reasonably quiet, would imagine it could be a pretty lively place. The garden pea ravioli was wonderful, I could eat it every day of the week, very light and fresh. All in all a very pleasant evening. Good food, service and nice atmosphere.

She said yes!
Easy Was A Last Minute Option For My Long Awaited Proposal. Will Was Our Server And Made It A Complete Success. He Video Taped The Proposal For Me And After She Said Yes We We're Greeted With A Champagne Toast On The House And A Standing Ovation By The Staff And Guests Of Easy Bistro. The Trout And The Roasted Chicken We're To Die For.

Best place in Chattanooga
Easy Bistro and Bar exceeded my expectations, big time. Went for our anniversary as a break from Atlanta, and I have to say it was a better experience than many nice restaurants there. Super courteous and knowledgeable staff, extensive wine list, and best mixed drink list I have ever seen.
Taylor, our waiter, was extremely knowledgeable and quick. The food (too extensive to list here) was ridiculously good ... Oysters, house made olives, ramp risotto, brisket ... Amazing.
All in all worth every penny. Apparently a chef-owned place, whatever he's doing it is right. I wish I could say something more critical but I can't.

If you are looking for great food and wonderful service this is the place to choose. Our waiter Gabriel was very knowledgable - listen to his suggestions. Be ready for a great time.

We were visiting our adult
We were visiting our adult son in Chattanooga and decided to try something new. We were so glad we did. The food was fantastic and our server, though quite young, was delightful. His eagerness to do a good job overshadowed his inexperience. We rarely order desserts but he encouraged us to order the Sticky Toffee Pudding And the bourbon bread pudding. Both were exceptional.

Our favorite spot in Chattanooga
My wife and I first ate here 7 years ago, when we went to Chattanooga on our honey moon. The menu looked interesting and the front was very welcoming, also, very busy, good sign for a restaurant. The food was superb and the wait staff were very knowledgable of the menu, which varies almost daily by the way, and it was a fantastic experience. We loved it so much, that we return almost every year for our aniversary, even though it's a two and a half hour drive for us. Every time we go, the menu is new and seasonal and the food is outstanding.

Great Local Place
We were spending the night in Chattanooga and the local hotel recommended “Easy Bistro” as a casual yet sophisticated dinning spot. The food was great, we sat in the outdoor area and spent a nice evening dinning, chatting and watching the crowds attending the River bend festival.
6/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was nutrient dense and nice presentation and very tasty.
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
For starters, the amuse bouche
For starters, the amuse bouche of gingered peaches with marscapone, then the cheese platter appetizer (we added prosciutto) were both big hits. We knew that the Chef's energy and creativity would continue. Our 3 entrees of trout, risotto, and chicken each had special touches and delightful sauces. We were especially pleased that morel mushrooms were used to enhance several dishes. The kitchen was able to accomodate a vegetarian request quite nicely. After such an abundant meal, we hesitated to order dessert, but can happily say the white chocolate pot de creme we shared was, of course, fabulous. A well-informed wait staff knew the answers to our question about locally sourced ingredients and his attentiveness made for an enjoyable evening.

Excellent. Stop in and check
Excellent. Stop in and check it out. You will not be disappointed

Excellent Food & Spirits
Great menu offerings & very clean. The chef has a lot of variety, great presentation and the menu offers wonderful alternatives to typical fare. Hubby had the chef's oyster sample as his entre and I had their saffron & seafood pasta. Outstanding!
Appetizers that we enjoyed the civeche style raw tuna, cucumber, greek yogurt & fennel salad, corn soup which was like a cold stone ground grit based soup & their cold beet salad. The atmoshpere is fun and low key. While we were there there were several large groups of friends and smaller tables of diners as well. The atmosphere was quiet and low key. The wait staff was great too.

Lovely Meal, Excellent Service
Started with a refreshing and delicious cucumber & radish salad with mint and yogurt, then had the most incredible mushroom and English pea risotto. We finished with a white chocolate lavender pot de creme that was fantastic. Drinks were great, too. The most outstanding service. Our server was knowledgable, patient, accommodating, and very professional. Great dining experience.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've been in Chattanooga for 5 years now and this was our first visit - I'm sorry it's taken us so long. The food was absolutely amazing. After every course, the plates looked as though we had licked them clean - of course we didn't but there was not a bit left. Very unique combinations but this is a place where you just trust the chef and staff and you will not be disappointed.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food. Great selection. The service was good, if only too uppity for my taste. Sitting outside, it is not necessary to bring my spoon on a napkined plate, only to set it down on an outdoor metal table. Outside service should get outdoor normal.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had dined at Easy twice before; so I decided to take my wife for her 30th birthday. She loved it. She loved it so much that we ate brunch there the next morning and dessert there later the next night. Easy Bistro knows what they are doing and you can instantly notice the difference. Great place to enjoy a delicious meal.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pretty place, upgraded menu
Easy Bistro has come a long way. The menu has been upgraded to feature local produce and fresh catches. The menu is also more varied including chicken, lamb, beef. it is not the seafood restaurant that it started out as. All our entrees were delicious. The Bibb salad was so fresh tasting and simple. We had 3 desserts for the table- bread pudding, sticky toffee pudding and profiteroles with ice cream. All good, but the profiteroles were our least favorite. But the Clumpies ice cream in the puffs made up for the dessert. The price of the food has gone up along with the quality. But I don't mind paying for really good food.

delicious, romantic and fun dining!
a great experience from the moment we stepped in to the moment we left! the wait staff was excellent and the food is beyond words. the atmosphere, the view and the vibe is everything one could want from a fantastic dining experience. my date liked the suttle touch of acknowedgement for his birthday, from the staff and the note on the table. thank you so very much.

First visit, hopefully not the last
I surprised my wife with a romantic getaway to Chattanooga and a friend who used to live there said I "must" eat at Easy Bistro. Boy, was she ever right! We had a reservation for 7 on a Saturday night and it wasn't necessary as they weren't busy at all. We chose to sit at the bar and had it all to ourselves. When the bartender found out we were out-of-towners, she told the kitchen and they brought us a tomato juice and balsalmic vinegarette shooter on the house; really tasty! The bar has a really eclectic selection of beers; I pride myself on trying to be familiar with what's out there but I had not heard of any of the six or so they have on tap. For an app we had the olives with toast and it was great. Dessert was warm date cake!YUM
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a reservation for 4 and was seated immediately upon arrival. Our waitress was friendly, knowledgeable, and had a positive attitude. Terrific menu, with unique entrees and appetizers. Have been here several times and the food is always amazing, no matter what you order! Chef was able to accommodate a special meal request and this dish, too, was incredible! The only down side to the establishment is the noise level, it is quite loud. I can honestly say this place is a favorite of mine!
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
All the food was excellent but the stand out was absolutely the bread pudding. Having lived 20 miles from the French Quarter of New Orleans, I can say the Easy Bistro version took my senses back . It is the best bread pudding I have had since leaving Louisiana over 10 years ago.

More than good oysters!
We eat at Easy Bistro almost once a month, and there have been times we could criticize some aspect of our experience. But our recent dinner with business associates was a complete success. We ate oysters followed by lamb and tuna entrees with mushroom and haricots verts sides. Everything Chef Eric sent us was very tasty, well plated, cooked just right, and enjoyed thoroughly. I loved the touch of tarragon in the lobster mushrooms. Our server, Nick, was the most knowledgeable and professional waiter we've had anywhere in a long time with a very amiable personality. He was attentive, but not obtrusive. We rarely walk away from a restaurant complaint free. This meal was a totally enjoyable success. Kudos, Easy staff!

Begneits and Eggs Benedict are a true reminder of the New Orleans background and true to what you would expect in the best.

Mom's Birthday Brunch
Working with only minimum information about having a wheelchair and this being Mom's birthday brunch, Easy staff welcomed us the moment we drove up, unloading the wheelchair, rolling Mom safely into a special elevator, then escorting us to our table. On the table was a card signed by the staff members wishing Mom a happy birthday. Brunch was excellent, staff accommodated us brilliantly, all adding up to a very happy occasion indeed.

The food was delicious (thank you Cliff)! Service was outstanding (thank you Gabriel)!

Great food, excellent service
We went there for our anniversary dinner.
Our order consisted of squash blossom beignets, crispy sablefish collar, gag group, pan-seared trout, sticky toffee pudding, huckleberry pot de creme and cappuccino. Every dish was well-thought out, cohesive, and artistically presented, even the amuse-bouche, which was phenomenal!!
Our server was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about all the dishes. He even told us he had grown the fennel that appeared in the trout dish himself!!
We highly recommend this restaurant to anyone residing in or visiting the Chattanooga area who is looking for a fantastic meal and exceptional overall experience.
Added bonus, most of the ingredients are locally sourced!

Went to celebrate a birthday. Good food, great portions, but it can get a little too loud.
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are frequent travelers to Chattanooga and always make an effort to stop in to the Easy Bistro for Sunday brunch. We love the crab legs and the Norwegian Benedict. There is really nothing on the menu we don't like.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Arrived for a honeymoon dinner. Low lighting, spectacularly tall ceilings, a very comfortable atmosphere. Our waitress was excellent with offering suggestions and knowledge about individual plates. Had a lovely amuse-bouche as a gift from our waitress alongside our meal.

Great food and service but
Great food and service but a bit noisy. Although we could clearly hear the conversation at next table, it was often difficult for us to hear one another.

My meal was delicious. I had the steak tartare to start which was fabulous, followed by
fish with exceptionally good vegetables. They were kale and roasted turnip, just perfect.
Unfortunately my fish was dry and almost on the tough side, but my veg made up for the

Great place for casual elegance
Great place for casual elegance in the Riverfront neighborhood. We took advantage of the weekend extended brunch hours to go for lunch. Small touches such as switching napkins from white to black if they see you are wearing dark colors so you don't get white lint on your clothing is so nice! The food and service was so good we came back again for lunch the next day. Easy Bistro has been added to our "go to" list for future trips to Chattanooga.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
The shellfish platter is an extraordinary delight (and a good economic deal)! It could serve two. This is the only restaurant in town (to my knowledge) that offers Dungeness Crab. Fantastic!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I enjoyed lunch while sitting outside in the perfect setting. The food was fantastic and the people watching gave us a great backdrop as we enjoyed Mimosa's without our children! Highly recommend.

My husband declared the oysters some of the best he had ever eaten.

Chattanoogas Dining Nucleus
Chattanooga is undergoing a dining evolution with multiple great places to eat and Easy clearly sits at the center...Chef Niel is easily the most knowledgeable in town about wine and his superbly focused list reflects that.

My girlfriend and I enjoyed our dinner experience at the Easy Bistro very much. This was not our first experience at Easy. Every time we visit we just enjoy it that much more. The food is outstanding.

Incredible eats & Fantastic Service
We have changed our way of eating out to patronizing Farm to Table/Local Source/Organic establishments. This is one of the assortment of such places we visited while in Chattanooga. The options on the menu for the Saturday Brunch were fantastic. We had a hard time picking! The food came out quickly and it was delicious! A feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds! The portions were an excellent size as well. The service was fantastic and on point without being overly solicitous. We lacked for nothing. We highly recommend and when we get back to Chattanooga, we will be stopping in again!!!
