This was my first trip to Chattanooga so I used Tripadvisor to find a nice restaurant for dinner. After being cooped up in the car all day, it was delight to walk down to the St. John's area and into this lovely restaurant. Since it was very humid that evening we were a little drippy when we arrived, but the... More

We went on a slow Tuesday night and the waiter and cooks made our night. The service was spot on (friendly and attentive but not too much) and the meal was cooked to perfection. Our fish was one of the best we ever had, cooked perfectly with the right searing. I would highly recommend this place.

This restaurant is our favorite, and we've traveled across the country, so we know great restaurants. Our daughter requested this restaurant for her 16th so we traveled to Chattanooga for the evening to celebrate at St. John's. Everyone was amazing, the service was outstanding, the food was incredible, and even our picky son enjoyed the evening. The restaurant presented a... More

Love. Love. Love. We have heard The Meeting Place was the place to go for fresh interesting cuisine. It did not disappoint. We were able to be seated before Happy Hour (5-7) was over. The choices of cocktails for $5 was superb. We highly recommend the Texan which is a spin on the jalepeno margarita. The server was able to... More

This restaurant is amazing. The people are really friendly and the food is excellent. Fresh locally sourced ingredients cooked and plated beautifully. We always visit in the summer and the way they incorporate peaches and heirloom tomatoes into their dishes is just amazing.

What a great find. It was a family affair, so I tasted several dishes, and everything was exceptional. If I lived in Chattanooga, I would eat here at least once a week. Atmosphere is very nice, with dining at the very comfortable bar is an option. Vegetarian dishes are available and excellent. Staff is friendly and efficient. Can't give this... More

We were very impressed with St. John's restaurant. From the moment you enter you are greeted with a smile and courteous staff. The food is gourmet food, well-prepared and excellently served. The menu is farm driven and very diverse. My squash soup with lobster was superb. The duck entrée was amazing as was the chicken. We are not dessert eaters... More

My first time at St. John's and I will definitely be going back when I have the chance. Service was great. Food was great! Our waiter, Justin, was new but he did an excellent job and was very accommodating.
