St John's and the Meeting Place are at the top of their games. Excellent food and service make me come back for more. A bit pricey, but for you penny pinchers out there, go to Costco and buy a $100 gift card for $80. A 20% savings here is amazing. The Meeting Place's Wagyu burger is phenomenal. St John's serves...

My husband and I don't eat out often..as I love to cook and sometimes going out is an exercise in frustration. However, when we do venture out in Chattanooga, we either go for some local bbq or we go to St. John's Restaurant. We've been to the St. John's a half a dozen times for business and pleasure. It is... More

Short and sweet, Great food, outstanding service and very romantic atmosphere. The reviews I read did not disappoint, very pricey but you certainly get what you pay for! Highly recommend.

Everything you would expect from a high class restaurant, and more. Everyone on the waitstaff was exceptionally nice, the food was outstanding, perfectly cooked and expertly seasoned, the drinks were unique and delicious. Booked through open table, and stated that it was for our honeymoon, received a menu that stated congratulations across the top, and a quiet romantic table upstairs.... More

This place can really handle large groups well. The food choices were pretty good, although not extensive, and the menu items we enjoyed most were the pork belly and the shrimp ceviche. Definitely worth a try if you're in Chattanooga.

Beautiful atmosphere and Excellent service. Well presented and Formal enough for any occasion, but also comfortable. Farm to table menu is creative and completely delicious. Nice range of first courses and entrees from local seasonal vegetables to fresh fish from sustainable wild source to Wagyu beef.

We walked from the downtown Hampton to this restaurant and arrived in time to enjoy 1/2 off prices on appetizers. We had fresh gulf shrimp in a mini bun with chopped celery, onion, dill and aioli. (Think Boston-style lobster roll.) Delicious!! Our second appetizer was a small bowl of mac and cheese w/prosciutto ham and truffle. Also very good. One... More

This is a fine restaurant with superb staff and elegantly prepared food. It is a place to experience fine dining. The bar has a wide range of cocktails and a fine wine list. Go there when you want to relax, eat well, and enjoy an evening
