My wife and I fell upon this place on a visit to Chattanooga while waiting for a trip on the American Queen. Paul, the host and owner (?) was wonderful. We quickly established a relationship through our Tehran connections. The meal was great: swordfish with pumpkin, seafood curry, quail with grits, and a brussels sprouts salad. Will visit again if...

Nice atmosphere, almost 80's. Really liked wide selection of food available. Service good not great. I had the best "Old Fashion" I had ever consumed. Would certainly return.

I worked with Sally at 212 Market on a dinner for 45 people during the Head of the Hooch weekend. She was very accommodating when it came to changing our set menu choices, and provided a delicious 3 course meal at a reasonable price per person. The salmon with dill sauce was delicious as well as the 2 pasta dishes... More

If you are looking for the 'place' this it. The appetizers are great. We've tried the cheese table with pecans -awesome! The Bison ribeye melts on your mouth. Kids ate local beef burger on house made bun and pepper cheese. Deserts are criminal, but unless you are very hungry you will not have room... I made room for creme bruileé.... More

Had mixed feelings when entering 212 Market. The initial atmosphere IS a little "off", not sure of the best way to describe it. However, we were truly surprised and pleased with the food quality. We had the nicest waiter ever who was engaging and kind and happy to serve us soups and appetizers just before closing time. The Mediterranean Platter... More

It had been several years since we had dined at 212 but a couple weeks ago decided to give it a try. What a pleasant surprise it was. Restaurant parking on market street is unheard of and no wait. Not fancy but menu is wonderfully creative and the food lives up to the description. It is as beautifully presented as... More

We loved sitting out on the 2nd story balcony. Very charming, romantic and neat views of downtown Chattanooga. Excellent wine choices and wonderful food!!! Our last trip, we shared sockeye salmon on a bed of coconut rice with a miso sauce topped with mango salsa and served with blasted broccoli...absolutely delicious!!! We're told they have a different salmon dish weekly.... More

Nice collection of 40 beers, including locals and some crafts. Hard to decide on an appetizer, chose the trout souffle over the Tennesee quail! and the souffle was excellent, saucy and still steaming hot. Tasted like trout but certainly not fishy. Linda's seafood bisgue was excellent. Entree of coffee crusted duck breast on risotto was done perfectly, even though i'm... More

What a creative menu and very tasty! I enjoyed meeting an old friend at 212. I had never been here and had heard good things about the restaurant. The reviews were correct. The food was very fresh and very creative touches were added. The fruit served was all different pieces of fresh fruit. The salad greens were very fresh and... More
