Looking for fine dining in Chattanooga? This is it! St. John's Restaurant is perfect.
Yes, I have absolutely no complaints, no issues at all, not even the tiniest thing that bothered me.
My wife and I went for her birthday, and the service was flawless from the moment we stepped through the door. The staff was warm and welcome, took our coats, and had my specially reserved table ready right away. We sat upstairs next to the window, which is the best table for two in town. You'll get a great little view of Market St and the rest of the restaurant without being in the middle of everything. The service continued to be excellent for the rest of the night: our glasses never emptied, nothing was served too late, and they were always just a moment away.
Now, for the food: it was perfect! We had the foie gras to start: it was especially perfect! At first bite, both of us were craving more. In fact, we really, really want to go again just for this dish. Then, we had the duck and the venison. Both were wonderful. At this point, my wife is already saying this is her #1 meal ever.
Finally, for dessert, we had the fried apple pie. I can only dream about making something so flaky, so deliciously balanced between tart and sweet. We were also served Jack Daniels ice cream for the special occasion.
I would absolutely recommend this place. Unless you "don't do fine dining", then this is a must visit. Is it worth the extra cost? Of course. Will I love it to? Not unless you hate food!
