Great for special occasions

A beautiful restaurant with an exquisite menu! Every meal ordered has been wonderful! A must try is their carrot cake soufflé. The bar is also a nice place to sit for a more casual atmosphere.

Our anniversary dinner has been at St Johns most every year. With reservation you can expect to be greeted by name, door opened, menu printed happy anniversary on top. The last time we went in the chef had delivered several gifts, they were all quite tasty. On another anniversary champagne was delivered to the table. We always try to sit... More

The welcoming was very warming. The food was great: we had a trio of porc (tenderloin, bacon and a crepinette of porc and chorizo). The atmosphere felt 'French'

My husband had the filet and I had the trout. The dishes were elegantly served with delicious sauces. Cooked to perfection using fresh ingredients. Served with gracious and attentive care. Loved it.

I recently went back to St. John's Restaurant for a continuing education dinner. As always, the food was superb and the service was outstanding. You can always count on both high quality food and wonderful service here. Most of their meals are prepared using organic and all natural ingredients as well. They can accomodate most any specialty diets as well-just... More

St. John's is a place that you want to go if you are going to celebrate something special. You will need to be prepared to shell out a lot of cash for the dinner. I went for a friends birthday party, they made the place special for us. They also made the birthday boy feel extra special with the attention... More

They have good food and it is a nice place for special occasions, but it is a little pricey. Been there for graduations and anniversary.

This is my favorite restaurant in Chattanooga! The menu is original, and the chef always uses local produce. The variety in meats and fish are always fantastic and prepared well. In the 15 years or so that I have been eating there, I don't think I have ever had a bad meal. In recent years, the service has not been... More

St. John's is the special place you go to celebrate special occasions with special people. I am a self-described picky eater and I typically don't stray too far from the things I know well. Well, I've learned that anything the chef creates at St. John's is amazing. Even things like Beet Soup. Perfectly created and beautifully presented, everything at St.... More
