Our time at St. John's was enjoyable. Everything was spot on; though, if I had one complaint it would be the hostess, she seemed bothered by our existence but she may have been having a rough day. I cannot sing enough praises about our waiter, I believe the check said his name was Joe?; he was superb and made the experience from great to wonderful. He went above and beyond to give us a fine dining experience. The food was cooked perfectly to temperature and the taste was divine.

St John’s was a fantastic date night spot. My husband and I were looking for some place romantic and this exceeded our expectations. The food was phenomenal and we look forward to coming back when we need a specialty date night.

We came to visit from Atlanta and wanted the quality of food we were used to from high end restaurants, this DID NOT DISAPPOINT! From the apps to the dessert we were thoroughly pleased! Highly recommend the shrimp pimento crackers, odd but mind blowing, also our waiter was very helpful swapping out proteins to pair with the side dishes from another entree that I just had to try! They made our anniversary very special!

Put this place on your don't miss list. It's my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga, it never disappoints. Everything from the librations to dessert is first class. I can't come to Chatt without having dinner here. Ideal venue for business dinner, special celebration or date night.

My daughter and husband who live in Nashville had read about Chef Barron's nomination for the James Beard award and wanted to try the St. John's. The food was outstanding with the exception of the rather blah vegetarian pasta option. The halibut and scallops were perfectly cooked. My husband wanted the scallop first course for his entree; the waiter recommended doubling the order and pairing it with sides from the halibut main. Good recommendation! Son-in-law had filet and was pleased. The first course options were all interesting and delicious - Brussels sprouts salad sans the Benton bacon, cauliflower and lobster soup, roasted beets salad and field salad were all polished off. Our waiter, Bryan, was informative, attentive without being intrusive, and very capable. The mouse dessert was a little surprising - too much fruit and jelly-like mixture on top of the chocolate mousse. Creme brulee also had this fruit concoction which did not add to the excellence of the creme brulee. Banana cream pudding was a hit. Bar was a little slow. All in all it was a lovely meal in very pleasant surroundings. Several years ago we had an unpleasant experience at the restaurant and hadn't been back since Ms. Barron took over so we are happy to add the St. John's back to our restaurant repertoire.

Food and service was excellent. We were a party of 7 in the same room with a large party. It was so loud we had a difficult time talking to each other. The room had bad acoustics and sounds just echoed. We would’ve enjoyed it so much more had we been able to hear each other.

St John's restaurant is 5 star in every way. We were spending the weekend in Chattanooga and plan on revisiting St John's upon our return. This is a must "go to" restaurant for locals and visitors. The building is fantastic, the staff knowledgeable and solicitous and the food excellent and beautifully plated. All to be expected when the head chef is a James Beard recipient. Thank you all for a wonderful dining experience.

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!
