Great menu. The basil ice cream was as delicious as it is unique. While it's not part of the hip Chattanooga vibe, mature adults will enjoy the ambiance and good service.

Had the opportunity to dine at St. John's while passing through Chattanooga. A long time local recommended the restaurant and I am glad she did. The ambiance is quite nice, especially if you get a table near the railing upstairs. The service was excellent. Knowledgeable waiters added to the enjoyment. The selection of entrees is rather modes but should suffice... More

My wife and I came to town for a concert. Decided to start our night off with a nice dinner. Could not have picked a better place. Food is amazing, service was both friendly and professional. We will be back for sure.

We entered this quiet and softly lit restaurant. We were led upstairs. As we were seated I noticed the black napkins in the hostess hands. As each of us was wearing black, she deftly removed the white napkin from each place, replacing it with a black napkin...that attention to detail... Our server, Brian, never hurried us...he was friendly and very... More

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

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
