“Wonderful Meal”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We had a really wonderful meal at St. John's! The atmosphere was a bit on the quiet side for my liking - we were in a side room that housed just a few tables. But the building / interior itself were beautiful. Our server was excellent - very friendly and helpful, and he provided us with great recommendations. I always love when a restaurant starts the meal off with an amuse, and St. John's didn't disappoint. The watermelon tomato gazpacho to start was absolutely incredible. We had the sauteed sea scallops and the steak tartare for appetizers, and the duck and the wagyu beef for entrees. Everything we tasted was fresh, delicious and well seasoned. Even though we were stuffed, I always like to try a dessert if the rest of the meal was delicious... so we had the peaches three ways. AMAZING. Overall, I have zero complaints about the food and service at St John's. We had a really incredible meal here and I would highly recommend a visit if you're ever in Chattanooga!

“Fresh food and good service”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

We read so many good things about this restaurant that we had to try it! We weren't starving so my boyfriend and I slit 4 appetizers. The food was fresh, delicious and unique. The pork ravioli is a must try! Each dish was a unique combination of ingredients and we wished we would have had more room to try other dishes!

“Romantic Dining”
Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We arrived in Chattanooga about 8ish in the evening and wanted somewhere nice for dinner. What a beautiful simply decorated restaurant. We dined upstairs overlooking the entrance and bar area at a table for two. Tables are nicely placed without everyone hearing your conversation. Service, perfect!!!
Menu had a little of everything prepared with things I've never heard of. (And I get out quite a bit)
Everything was excellent, soup, salad & dinners.
Little side note...the Popsicle for dessert was not what I expected and absolutely divine!!

Service is only topped by excellent freshly prepared unique dinners. One of best restaurants I've ever been to- including Napa and Sonoma county, CA.
