The food was incredible, and our server was wonderful. Super quick and attentive. The winter menu ravioli was to die for. And I was in love with the dark chocolate creme brûlée. Perfect anniversary dinner!

We were four seniors...I'm the baby at 68! One has an issue with stairs...and I have an issue with heights HA! We were immediately escorted up the stairs to a table on the edge of the upper floor, directly under the speaker broadcasting jazz, which we asked twice to be turned down. The restaurant was all but empty when we arrived at 5PM, so I had wondered why we were placed where we were. The music was too loud and certainly not the kind of music one would expect at a high end restaurant like St Johns! All the food was fine, our waiter was excellent!, and the price is really too high for the value.

I enjoyed dining at St. John's Restaurant again as had been several months since eating there with the same lady friend last summer. I might have eaten there once since that time. Anyway, the house breads are amazing with three choices of potato bread (house specialty well known), rosemary sourdough (also a favorite), and a new brown bread described as pumpernickel yet didn't taste like pumpernickel, just a hearty Irish soda type bread so a good night for that. They usually have three bread choices courtesy prior to ordering from the menu so quite a treat! The house salad generous serving for one person as could eat 1/2 portion, other 1/2 portion for fellow dining companion the next time if desired. Did eat most of the salad. Loved the homemade Semolina pasta (spaghetti) which was slightly different than last time. Both of us ended up ordering each a Devil's Food Chocolate Layer Cake (like a pie slice).. so rich, decadent and delicious! Another wonderful memorable meal at St. John's Restaurant. I requested extra bread and sorghum butter to take home which ate partially for breakfast, ate remaining slices as part of lunch at work (got 2 potato slices, 2 rosemary sourdough, 1 brown bread slice).

White table cloth supper service, beautiful ambiance and most definitely a lovely place to sit down and have courses. Tile floors make it a bit noisy but you honestly can’t ask for better wait staff. Ask for recommendations by the staff because they know.

Probably the best place to eat in Chattanooga.

My only wish is a little darker print on the menu and maybe a little larger print as the restaurant is not dimly lit, but also not brightly lit. My eyes are beginning to get a little worn out and I am to vain to carry glasses everywhere.

We were a bit disappointed upon arrival for our Nee Year’s Eve celebratory dinner. Although we had a reservation confirmed for 6:30, we were not seated until 6:55 without a reasonable explanation for the delay. It started the evening off on a less than positive experience but, otherwise, everything else was as good as anticipated.

We had reservations and forgot about the time difference from Nashville. They accommodated us perfectly, just 2 of us. We had just returned from New York, 3 days of dining, shopping and relaxing and St Johns was at the top of that week of fun. We will be back and bring friends. Outstanding in every way! Thanks!!

Ate at St John’s Restaurant celebrating 20th Wedding Anniversary. When we arrived, the menus were emblazoned with Happy Anniversary, a really special touch. We have eaten there more than 20 times over the years, and there are things you can always count on from St John’s; excellent, attentive service from knowledgeable waiters, beautifully prepared food and nice ambiance. Its always special.

St. John's did not disappoint! We enjoy trying creative dishes (like their Brussels sprout salad with chocolate) so we (4 adults) each ordered firsts, entrees and desserts to share/taste. All of them were delicious and exceeded our expectations. I can't wait to go back!
