During our recent stay in Chattanooga we went with the unplanned approach to dinner and decided to try 212 Market. When we walked in I have to admit that my first instinct was to turn around and walk back out. It was 8:00 on a Friday evening and the place was empty. Fortunately, the others in my... read more

We were looking for a restaurant that offered more healthy choices so we decided to try this place. A lot of the food served here is locally sourced which is good. The salads were huge. I had the grilled pimento cheese sandwich and I liked it. Lunch prices were quite reasonable. They also offered Truvia sweetener for tea.

Get a grip Chattanooga. It ain't all that. I can get better tasting food at some fast food place down the street.

Delicious food and excellent service! Sally was a joy to work with in planning our son's graduation celebration. She planned a wonderful menu to satisfy all tastes. Our original plan for 40 guests increased to 60 guests and she made adjustments to handle more people. Table arrangement and fresh flowers on the tables were wonderful. Our menu consisted of steak,... More

This is a nice restaurant and the menu has a variety of good food choices. It is a bit noisy so not a great place to go if you are looking for a quiet, romantic setting. We had a big party and the waiters were very attentive. The only negative was the kids menu. There were only 2 choices-curly pasta... More

Hubby and I dinner here one rainy night during our Chattanooga visit. He had a local beer ($5) which he said was unique but not bitter so he enjoyed it. I had a Spiked Apple Pie martini ($8) which was very good. They brought out fresh, hot bread which was very good. Then hubby had a cup of chili ($4)... More

Brought my family here for pre easter dinner. There were 6 of us. We were all disappointed by the taste, portion size, service and time it took to get food. They were not busy at all. We left hungry and disatisfied. Had to go eat at another place after we left there. I was really looking forward to eating there.... More

Enjoyed a great tasting shrimp and grits with andouli sausage at 212. It is good to know that their food is often locally sourced and organic. The atmosphere was pleasant but not outstanding. The service was good. It is nice to have free parking at a downtown restaurant.
