Wonderful menu selections, great service, perfect ambiance. What more can you ask for? We had a perfect evening, enhanced by the setting and service and food. Our favorite was the beet salad, followed closely by the pork belly. The wine selection was also excellent and the waiter knew what to recommend. This is a must try for yourself.

This restaurant is one of the most wonderful places to dine in Chattanooga. Although the prices are higher than the norm, the food is truly incredible. Very well thought out, excellent flavor pairings, a terrific wine list, and knowledgeable servers. This is a restaurant I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fine dining experience.

Once again St Johns provided us with a wonderful experience. The food was excellent; venison, salmon, steak and yummy deserts. Our waitstaff, Joi, was on hand for our every need which added to a very pleasant evening. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I recently ate here while visiting Chattanooga. The restaurant is located a few blocks south of Warehouse Row on Market Street. We had no trouble parking across the street and feeding the meter. We had reservations and were quickly seated upstairs. The servers were very good. I enjoyed the crab appetizer and my wife had the tomato... More

Yesterday evening we were having dinner, a romantic dinner, when a table of guests exploded in extremely load cheering and yelling. As it turns out they had an ipad... More

I just can't say enough about how good this restaurant's food is, but what drew us back for two nights in a row was the pork belly sliders. Amazing!!!!!!!! My husband had the beef fillet and I had the roast chicken breast with potato Gnocci and butternut squash. So good. If we ever get back to Chattanooga again you can... More
