I'm always looking for a new local restaurant whenever I go to a different city and I certainly found it in this excellent restaurant. It is advertised as Vegan, Vegetarian restaurant and I suppose it is, but I am neither vegan nor vegetarian and I thoroughly enjoyed my meal. I had a vegetable soup to warm up as it was... More

My friend and I wanted to try a new place we had never been. Because of her gluten allergy and 212's gluten free options, we gave it a try. Overall, it was a wonderful experience. The decor and ambiance was very pleasant and they were very accommodating in seating us by the window. Our server was very nice and had... More

You needn't be a vegan to enjoy the fare at 212 Market. Wife and I enjoyed dinner here on a cold Friday night. Staff was friendly. Decor is not elaborate but it's clean and relatively quiet. Waiter Paul was a bit slow to get us started but warmed up as the evening wore on, even combining the grilled trout with... More

Whenever I visit Chattanooga, I make a point to eat at 212. The menu accommodates diets of those listed in the title of this review. I have found that in the South, most restaurants have one vegetarian entree. But 212 has several vegetarian entrees. We liked the food so much that we ate lunch here 2 days in a row!!... More

Amazing! Food was great. Service was great. Prices very reasonable. Ate lunch and had spinach salad and split grilled pimento cheese sandwich with bacon, lettuce and tomato with my sister. She had the fried green tomato salad. All the food was great. The bread while you wait as super. We were so full we had no room for dessert. Plan... More

Uses local and organic vegetables and is prepared very well. I had a lovely chat with the bartender, which I enjoyed since I was there alone. The scallops I ordered were cooked perfectly!

Loved the burger and the trout. Others had quiche and salads and enjoyed them too. Easy to find and free parking

On our last visit to the Big Chatt, we were looking for someplace new for Sunday Brunch. As we perused the menu at 212 Market, a couple of elderly ladies were walking in, and sung their praises, extolling the fresh, local ingredients that 212 uses in all of their dishes. They announced it as "the" place to go for Brunch.... More

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...
