The food is always first class & perfectly prepared. This is a place where I recommend trying something new even if you dont typically care for a particular food style, keep a open mind and try it. The food is prepared in a way that you probably haven't even come close to tasting before. So what you think you probably won't like could possibly be your favorite thing ever.

My table was ready when I arrived. Always get a reservation. Don't have to order off the menu. Just say "Bring me something." Never disappointed.

Excellent menu, excellent food, and excellent service. Our waiter was We had scallops and Brussels sprouts for starters and steak/brisket for entrees and all were wonderful. As were the wines. St. John's is pricey, but we thoroughly eating there for special occasions.

I took my wife here after a movie for our anniversary. You can read other reviews to learn about how good the food is. I will just say that nothing we had was lacking in flavor or presentation. Their venison was extremely delicious.

I was especially delighted in the attentiveness and helpfulness of the wait staff. They were absolutely the best.

The valet parking was only $5. Hard to find valet at that price for such a nice place as this.

My wife and I ate at St John's on our 45th anniversary. We found the restaurant's atmosphere to be pleasant and quiet enough to converse easily and it felt warm and inviting. The service was ok, but we had to wait a while to place our order, and I received a slightly different first course than I thought I had ordered. The problem could have been primarily because I didn't see the other similar dish on the menu.
The food , squash soup with bits of lobster and the 2nd course of medium rare veal was exquisite.
St John's is a good choice for a special occasion.

Me and my girlfriend went here for our 1 year anniversary and we loved it! The food was amazing and had no idea what the menu meant, but the chef was outstanding with his food pairings! It is a great place to try new things and we had zero complaints about St Johns. They even printed Happy Anniversary on the menu's for us and gave us a on the house appetizer! Probably one of the best restaurants we have ever been to! Be prepared to spend some money however because this is quite the fine dining, but it was worth every cent!

Food was extremely salty and heavy. Lack of vegetables on the menu. Slow/ poor service. Tables extremely close together. Very over priced. Food was ok, certainly not worth the price or wait.

Overall a very lovely meal. One server misstep with a graceful recovery, but the flavours of the meal compensated well. Grilled foie gras, sweet breads in mustard sauce, steak tartare, followed by wagyu beef and filet, finished with a carrot cake soufflé. The sides of mash, cheese grits and mushrooms were seasonal and sensational. Upstair seating provided a nice atmosphere, but the ambient wind and chill were arctic.
