Absolutely wonderful from start to finish. We didn't have a single bad dish (6 of us dined) We commended the chef Rebecca Logan for unique and very tasty food. Wine was thoughtfully recommended and was wonderful. 5 stars all the way around

The salad was amazing and the boiled peanut appetizer, but the halibut and steak were average as well as the pecan pie.

There is a good reason that St. John's is rated one of the best restaurants in the Chattanooga area...great food, great atmosphere, great service.

This was my first visit to St. John's and I was not disappointed. The food was excellent, from the starters to the entrees to the desserts, and the selection was diverse enough to satisfy all of our palates. The portions were generous but not overwhelming which left us room for dessert. The menu varies daily depending on availability of local items so everything was very fresh and absolutely delicious! The service was also impeccable. I will definitely be back as there are other items I would like to try, but not in my budget for everyday dining. Perfect for special occasions or business dinners.

We were in Chattanooga to celebrate our Daughter's Birthday and wanted to go someplace special.We had been there several years ago,and remembered how much we enjoyed St John's then ,so checked reviews on Yelp to make sure there had been no changes. All reviews were positive,so that was the place to go!
We went to the Meeting Place next door for Happy Hour,again,based on Yelper's comments ,and enjoyed a few small plates and a cocktail before our reservation at 7.
We were greeted at St John's and seated in the small dining room to the left of the entry-very cozy.Our waiter was great-wish I could remember the name!
Of our party of 4,we ordered 2 Snapper entrees,the duck and a filet.Everything was outstanding-the presentation,the food,and pace of the evening.
A definite stop for a great meal in Chattanooga! ( There were several reviews about it being "pricey" but we felt that is a great value!

Service was awful. Drinks took 10 minutes. I ordered my glass of red wine 15 minutes before my entree was to come out and I didn’t get it until after I had eaten my entree even though I had reminded the waiter 3 times about it. Was very underwhelmed with the service. I will not be going back here.

Incredibly delicious cuisine - thoughtfully creative, inspired by local flavors, but influenced by the Chefs' worldly palate. The Beet dish is an absolute show-stopper, as was the squash agnolotti, seasonal heirloom tomatoes, filet, and red snapper.

This gem delivers the best of big city dishes in the Scenic City. Can't wait to return.

Service was wonderful - wait staff was there when we wanted and not, otherwise. He asked if we'd like to order our items together or one at a time (our preference) and was delightfully pleasant and understanding with our desire to control the flow of our meal ourselves. Food was all outstanding per our expectations.

We truly enjoyed our evening at the St. John's Restaurant and give it high marks pretty much all the way around. We were greeted by the restauranteur and taken to a lovely table in the balcony area. Dinner was excellent from start to finish. Even considered having dinner there the next evening as our first was so enjoyable. Would we return next time we're in Chattanooga? Absolutely!

Food and service was great. I should have requested not to be sat in the bar area... the sun beaming through the windows and bright white everything felt very “bankish”. Next time I’ll be sure to request a table in another part of the restaurant. Overall a great experience though. We’ll be back.

My friend's daughter recommended St. Johns and it did not disappoint. Lovely vegetarian options in addition to a nice selection of creative organic/local sourced dishes. The dessert was to die for...I'm going to attempt to recreate the basil ice cream.
