    Our reservation was for 6p on Tuesday evening. They were not at full capacity, but it was early and on a week night. I'm sure it is crowded on a weekend. Our food was amazing. Our waiter was fantastic. It was so nice to have a valet. I will be back again.

    In my opinion, St. John’s Restaurant is the best restaurant in the Chattanooga area. The service is always impeccable. The host/hostess always notices if I am wearing black and will give me a black napkin without my asking for one. Food preparation is imaginative and excellent. This food is of the highest quality and always delicious. I have never been disappointed in a meal there and would recommend it highly.

    Overall a very good dining experience. Felt the menu could have included a few more light dishes. Very meat oriented, well prepared but really struggled with making a selection. Not their fault. Would definitely enjoy eating there again but would pull up the menu beforehand.

    This was a delicious and well-priced high scale restaurant. My fiance and I had a incredible evening. We started off with the shrimp crackers, oyster shooters, and the pork belly. I ordered the duck and he ordered the pork entree. We had banana pudding and PB bombe for dessert. I cant say one bad thing about any we ordered. I would 100% recommend to others.

    St. John did not disappoint. Right downtown Chattanooga in the revitalization area of King Street. I was there with business associates and everyone enjoyed the outstanding food offerings as well as craft beer and a wonderful Bourbon and wine selection. This would be great for an anniversary with the white linen service and great attentiveness by the staff. Wonderful!

    We have dined at St John on multiple occasions. For the first time in over 20 years we had the honor of having my mother in law with us on Mothers Day, so we took her to the nicest place in town. As typical the food was outstanding . The service was exactly what you would expect from a 4 Star Restaurant. That said we were sat in this tiny little room just to the left of the entrance. There was a table of 4 to our right who were VERY loud. After about a half hour another table of 4 was sat right next to them and they happened to know each other. After that the noise level in that tiny room became intolerable. Others who had been seated but had not ordered, actually requested to be moved out of the room. These people belonged in the BAR not in a tiny room where people were trying to enjoy their own conversations. We will go back as it is not the restaurants fault but they should have noticed the noise level and the patrons need to learn fine dining etiquette or go to CHILI's....

    Food was excellent. Setting seemed like old hotel lobby. Not the best. Wine served into a glass that had some astringency causing the wine to taste bad. Demonstrated issue. Was offered no new wine or anything. Desert drink sucked.

    Our time at St. John's was enjoyable. Everything was spot on; though, if I had one complaint it would be the hostess, she seemed bothered by our existence but she may have been having a rough day. I cannot sing enough praises about our waiter, I believe the check said his name was Joe?; he was superb and made the experience from great to wonderful. He went above and beyond to give us a fine dining experience. The food was cooked perfectly to temperature and the taste was divine.
