From previous TA reviews, I knew St. John's was a top favorite for Chattanooga patrons. At the time of this review, it is rated #1 of all Chattanooga restaurants. With our 45th wedding anniversary coming up soon, I decided to make St. John's the choice for a special dinner.
I made advance reservations through Open Table (reservation booking service...I recommend you try it next time you need a restaurant reservation.) Our chosen day and time was available and I made the reservation on-line. As a part of the Open Table service, I was also able to order a nice flower arrangement to be delivered to St. John's for our
Because I had noted in our reservation that this was our anniversary, we received a little extra service..."Happy Anniversary!" from the hostess, nice table placement and, of course, our flowers were placed on our table and waiting for us.
Our waiter was also aware of our special occasion and our individual menus said "Happy Anniversary" at the top. He treated us great all evening long and handled our service with perfection. I decided to try the Warm Beet salad and it was a good choice. If you like beets, you'll love this dish. For our main meal, we had a couple of the steak entrées...wife had the roasted filet and I had the Wagyu Beef Steak. Both were prepared to perfection and tasted great. We finished the evening with a couple of cups of great coffee.
In my opinion, this is a place you might go for special occasions or events. Because of the cost (yes, it's expensive), I don't see this being a "regular" option for routine dining out. BUT, if you're looking for that special place to enjoy a special evening (or, lunch) then St. John's is well deserving of its high standing.
