The service was good and the restaurant had nice architecture. The bread and butter was great and I am not a bread person. The meal was pretty good. The dessert was good. This restaurant really did not overly impress me but I would not discourage someone to try it for themselves.

We recently visited St. John's Restaurant for my 50th birthday. What an incredible evening from start to finish. Our waiter Joe was incredible, very knowledgeable about the food and wine menu; his passion for the restaurant was very evident. Every plate was extremely thoughtful, with every ingredient having a purpose. We experienced an array of plates, including shrimp & pimento cheese crackers, butternut squash soup, heirloom tomato salad, pork belly croque madame, duck breast, salmon and black grouper. We would order any of them again. This restaurant is a treasure that we will visit again and again.

We are from Memphis and have eaten at St. John's twice now on our two most recent trips to Chattanooga.

The food was superb and our server was terrific. There are many small things that you do that are the hallmark of a fine restaurant.

Congratulations on a fine establishment.

My husband’s beef and brisket dish was slightly undercooked, and my grouper, otherwise delicious, was badly over salted. My heirloom tomato salad was excellent as were our drinks and wine. Desserts - ice cream and a chocolate crepe brûlée - were good but nothing special. It was very, very noisy - not very romantic or intimate (we were upstairs).

Hands down, the finest cuisine in Chattanooga. Each and every item on the menu is simply, yet uniquely, delicious. The kind of dining experience that almost takes your breath away, making you stop mid sentence to comment to your dining companions, "oh my... this is heavenly...."
Decor and ambience is understated elegance. Very pleasing atmosphere.

We had not visited this establishment in a long time and so happy it still as good as we remembered. We drove from Atlanta to eat here. Food was excellent. My dad at the Venison and loved it. The dessert, however, stole the show with Basil ice cream... would drive back just to eat it.

Wonderful Anniversary dinner. Attentive wait staff, never had to request a thing! The pace of service was spot on. Slightly slow but a large party of 10 celebrating birthdays were just ahead of us. The meal was superb! Heirloom tomato toast, squash & corn soup with butter poached lobster- absolutely delicious, make sure to enjoy. The Wagyu Beef zabuton Steak was phenomenal! The combination with the cabbage, mushrooms and grits was exceptional! Topping off the evening was a delicious pecan pie. By far, St John’s is the best restaurant we’ve been to in Chattanooga! We will be back!!
