    Restaurant across from The Westin and decided to give it a try on a whim. Server (Madelyn) was great and gave her honest opinion when asked for advice. There were more staff than patrons so the service for a burger and Brussel sprouts was quite slow considering.

    Restaurant was very noisy inside. Dining with a friend who wears hearing aids and we had to request to move outdoors. Restaurant was very accommodating and moved us. Less, but still, noisy outside. Food was very good, served promptly and the drinks were also very good. Service was excellent. Overall value was high, but we will probably choose to dine there on a less busy day because of noise level.

    First time here. Excellent food, pricey for the amount. We ordered the crepes as an appetizer, three 2 inch flat triangles for $14. For 4 people, might have been nice to serve 4, but in general just a tiny portion. Conversely, the $8 brussel sprouts were a nice size portion for 4 to share Meals were excellent Loved the DIY $10 mimosa full bottle champagne with side of OJ.

    Entree came out while we were still eating our salad. Took back to the kitchen to keep warm, but when it was brought back, the jambalaya was dry. We were surprised the courses weren’t brought out appropriately. The Manager did credit us for the jambalaya.

    Food was great but there were gnats flying around and landing in our wine, the wine glasses tasted like soap and the service at least in the back room if you weren’t where the pretty people sit was not great

    Great location. Food was delicious and our server was really sweet and informative. The service felt rushed. We took about 3 bits of the appetizer and the entree was served. The empanadas were AMAZING and the NC trout was so delicious. A lot of food for the price. Drinks great.

    We were in Chattanooga for one night. Gilman’s was down the street from the Indigo hotel so we decided to give it a try. Both the service and food were great. Don’t miss the empanadas. A light and flaky crust and a fantastic dipping sauce. Entrees were lovely. I had the Tuna macro bowl. The fried chick peas were so good. Husband enjoyed his steak frites. Bon Appetite.

    Excellent location convenient to several hotels, elegant decor, pleasant patio seating. The cocktails are all very sweet. Recommend going off-menu with a classic. My trout was overcooked but the sauce was good. My spouse's steak was well-cooked. A little pricey for the execution.

    My husband and I went here for date night for dinner on a Sunday and loved it. The food was amazing and so were our drinks. I was blown away by the fact that I could order Caymus by the glass as it's my favorite wine. Bailey was our server and she was very knowledgeable about the menu and answered all of our questions. We will definitely be back!

    The manager went out of his way to make sure we had the seating we asked for when we arrived for our reservation. Our server was fantastic, and the food was great. The outdoor nightlife ambiance at this place is fantastic. They also had gluten free options available for my wife. Highly recommended.

    This has been one of our favorite spots for the past several years and since we just moved to town it did not disappoint. Love sitting at the bar and watching people in the west village. Food is always great, salmon is fantastic and the Jambalaya with a twist was really good. Will be our regular spot for years to come. Don’t miss out on one of Chatts great restaurants.

    Excellent meal, particularly the trout which we have had before. Also liked the empanadas and tuna tartare. The disappointment was the lobster roll roll which was simply some steamed lobster stuck between a hot dog roll. The lobster needs to be steamed with some spices and lemon, and need to be presented on a slightly crusty roll with a large dollop of mayonnaise aioli.
