Our first time in Chattanooga, and this was a real delight. I had creamy cauliflower soup with tender lobster pieces, followed by a perfectly cooked trout. My husband started with Brussels sprouts and an antelope steak. Martini was precisely as I asked for it, and excellent wine selection. We hope to return!

I have had taken two business groups to St. John's and have been completely satified both times. The Lobster salad is the bell ringer. It is the most talked about course even weeks later.

Started it off with sea scallops which were amazing. We were sharing and they were nice enough to split into two bowls when they brought the food. For our main course we had the lamb and the antelope. We shared a few bites and both were amazing. For cocktails we both drank a heart banger which was very good. Great place to eat. You can also valet for $5 right out front. The meal is pricey but well worth it!

My wife and I are never disappointed with our meals at St. John's. I had their cassoulet and Ann had the rack of lamb. As with everything served at St. John's, they were done with imagination and style. You can't go wrong.

Enjoyed the server and the food was excellent! Was recommended by family. Arrived early and the bar was full. Checked in with hostess and was sent next door to P/M to upstairs bar. When returned for 8:45 reservation. Showed my open table email conf# to the host and seated. Surprised when we were listed as a no show by them. Felt rushed and not a priority both times we checked in and perhaps that is why they did not officially mark us as checked in. Other than this mix up, I would have scored them a 5.

Haven’t been I years and glad we went back. It was Valentines Day and worried it would be rushed service. However, our service was outstanding.
We did the Chef’s choices and wine pairing. Was AWESOME!!! There were two choices for each course so we just asked to bring one of everything. Wasn’t a single dish we disliked. My only negative comment is the center cut ribeye was a little tough (to me). My wife loved it so that’s all that matters!!!!
We will definitely be going back soon.

Disappointing. Things were fine until a large party sat near us. At that point, the server almost ignored us. My steak and potatoes were cold. I complained to the manager and she made a slight adjustment to the check. Also, it was our 15th anniversary and we got an acknowledgement but did not feel special. St. John's, you have some work to do!

The beet and turnip dish on the valentine's special was very bland. No distinctive taste at all. Was surprised that it was served. The crab meat on it was delicious but the beets were nondescript. I was waiting to taste a zing or a strong flavor to help bring out the other flavors and it was disappointing.

This was my first visit to Chattanooga and I was intrigued by the menu offering farm raised antelope. The wait staff was excellent and the service and food were impeccable. I have dined at several fine establishments in Charleston, Greenville, and Atlanta and this was the best meal I've ever had. I highly recommend St. John's and will be patronizing them every opportunity I get.
