Cafe 4 is one of the best places to eat in Knoxville. It is located in Market Square and is one place that you should not miss. The food is amazing! I have ordered many different things off the menu and every time I am happily surprised! The service it good and the price is somewhat high, however I would... More

I didn't see anything special about this place. it was overpriced and over crowded. I always assumed if it was crowded it would be really good. Even as a romantic intimate date would be ruined since you had to be crawled over as people passed the packed in tables. I heard the conversation of the people at the tables around... More

Very disappointing. I went by to pick up a cupcake at 9:10 pm on a Monday, assuming that they would be open until 9:30 as it states on their website. The doors were already locked, although there were still many diners in the restaurant finishing up dinner. I tugged at the door and waiting patiently to see if anyone would... More

My husband and I love to take our dogs to Cafe 4's dog friendly patio when the weather is nice. The food and service is always great. Love the fish tacos!

Had a wonderful eggs Benedict for brunch. The flavors were wonderful and the cheese grits were the best. My husband had fried chicken and biscuits. Hands down the best chicken ever! The atmosphere was warm and cozy and wait staff was great!

Again this Restaurant was recommended to me by the lady at the front desk at the Hilton Downtown in Knoxville, TN. My server was Brittany, I asked her about the lunch specials. She said the Thursday special was a very good HOT MEATLOAF SANDWICH Open-faced, whipped potatoes, toasted bread with mushroom gravy. After a brief talk with her I decided... More

Nice variety of menu items with several healthy choices. Our waiter was very good. Only negative was some confusion with the hostess (front desk ) both times. Saturday night we had to wait... More

At here after a football game and the ambiance and service were excellent. We have a gluten allergy in the family and we're surprised with the gluten-free carrot cake for desert. Very good!

Went there for brunch, on a Saturday. Best shrimp and grits I've ever had. My husband got the benedict with lobster rolls and it was not good. But we both loved the giant mimosas. We would go back, but we would both get the shrimp and grits next time.

Just "OK" all around. We had the Parmesan Truffle Fries as an appetizer...just average; I would not get them again. For dinner, I had the Lobster-Bacon Flatbread...again, just average; the bread had way too much oil. I only ate one-quarter of the bread. My husband had the Pimento Burger, which he likes pretty well. He also had the "regular" Mac... More
