Easy Bistro Ratings and Reviews

What an odd dining experience. We arrived at 6:30pm on our way to an 8pm show a couple blocks away. We ordered simply (salad and entree) in a non-busy restaurant, mentioned to our server that we were on our way to a show as of about 7:20 when things seemed to be moving slowly, and received our entrees at about 7:50. The server seemed blissfully unconcerned that she was bringing our meals 80 minutes after we arrived and 10 minutes before we had indicated we needed to be elsewhere. The food was fine, but we had to eat it in a huge rush.

My wife and I went to celebrate our anniversary. We also consider ourselves foodies from Atlanta. We have been to many fine restaurants in our time and EasyBistro is now at the top of our list of special occasion spots, assuming we are in Chattanooga. The menu changes often so be adventurous and try whatever they offer.

Both of our meals were extremely tasty.
The trout on kale and mushroom with broth was notable as were the shrimp and grits. The desert clafoutis resulted in a shared spoon duel.
Noise level depends on the crowd at the time. It was fine for us but I can see how it could get louder.

Took my wife here for our anniversary and I had requested a single rose for the table. In place of a rose they gave us a special table in a romantic corner and a card signed by the staff. The wife was very surprised as was I. The food, wine, staff and atmosphere was excellent. Can't wait to back to Chattanooga with my beautiful drive and dine here again.

We were on a sightseeing/business trip in Chattanooga and saw Easy Bistro when we were walking around. After reviewing the menu we decided to make a reservation for the following night. We were pleasantly surprised by the level of service and the quality of food we had at Easy Bistro. We both had the Tomato Pie which was an incredible dish, I had braised brisket and my wife had steak tartar and mussels. We both felt the presentation and preparation was excellent the service was prompt and curtious. I would say this meal was one of the top 10 restaurant meals we have had as we have traveled around the country.

Good food and drink - altho over-priced in our opinion for the quality and quantity. Oysters (on their discount night) were delicious. But six-ounce pours of wine were $14 and up (Pinot Noir was delivered cold). Entrees, while certainly tasty and well-presented, were more expensive than other comparable restaurants and were nothing special. A nice dining experience, but not for the money--and we probably won't go back.

Starting our night out with a unique and tasty drink from the changing bar menu is always a treat, and so is choosing the meal! Easy Bistro offers many fresh, seasonal, and locally produced selections prepared in creative and always delicious ways! Summer highlights...seersucker cocktail, red snapper and corn succotash...We are already hoping to return before these items leave the menu! Great job Easy Bistro!

It was our second visit. Once again it was an all around great experience. The wine list is solid, food variety and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating. And the location is ideal for a pre or post meal stroll.

Waiter was nice and tried to mitigate the situation giving us bubble for free. Food was ok - but not really big deal.

Anniversary Dinner and night out.
Wife's gimlet tasted like limeade- not Rose's lime juice.
Wife said her entree of rainbow trout was one of best she had ever eaten.
My strip steak was properly cooked to medium rare but had so much gristle I gave up after chewing and chewing and chewing half of it.
Our server was the best part of our dining experience. She was very friendly,knowlegable, and attentive. She was outstanding and Easy Bistro is fortunate to have her.
Overall, I think the food was only fair at best and definitely overpriced. There are too many restaurants in the same area with better food and a better dining experience.

I've been to Easy Bistro several times and the most recent visit was the best yet. The menu is pared down from what it was previously, but the selections are outstanding and consist of very high-quality ingredients, including more seasonal and local products. Perhaps the smaller menu has allowed the kitchen to concentrate on making just a few perfect dishes, in which case they've succeeded admirably. We started with a plate for the table of assorted salumi and cheeses, some local, which were excellent. As an appetizer, I had a blue corn tostada with seasonal fresh vegetables including squash blossoms, purple cauliflower and bottarga with an epazote vinaigrette. Quite pleasant and refreshing, as well as colorful. It would have been even better without the fried tortilla, which became soggy on account of the salad dressing. My companions had steak tartare and a corn soup, which they were both pleased with. For the main course, I had braised beef brisket, which was superbly cooked in a sauce espagnole. The accompanying mashed potatoes and green beens were excellent. My companions had the grilled trout and seafood cioppino with mussels, shrimp and snapper as well as okra and tomatoes in a saffron broth. I sampled some of the latter - exquisite. For dessert I had the bourbon bread pudding, which was very satisfying and served in a copious portion. The wine list is adequate, though not extensive, and is fairly priced. Service was friendly, professional and attentive. We were there on a Monday, so it was moderately quiet, but the noise level can become elevated during crowded times, especially near the bar area. Easy Bistro remains in my top two or three Chattanooga fine dining spots. I'd recommend it to anyone for a special occasion and look forward to going back soon.

Always amazing cuisine at Easy Bistro. We are new to Chattanooga, and it's already our #1 favorite restaurant. I enjoyed the avocado toast, son had mussels (delish!) and hubby had eggs benedict (Father's Day!). Definitely recommended.

My family and I have gone here many many times and never have we been treated the way we were this evening. Our server was rude and just horrible. We asked for management and he was even more rude.. We had other friends come in to be seated and were turned away when clearly seating was open. We will have think twice before taking a large group of friends here again.
If you are in Chattanooga on weekends you must try this place for brunch. I had Eggs Benedict, Potato Hash and a Bloody Mary. All were excellent. They add slices of tomato to the EB and chunks of bacon to the hash. The service is also excellent.
Easy Bistro is easily my favorite restaurant!
The food is phenomenal...excellently prepared, wonderfully approached, technique and creativity combine into a flavor experience. The cocktail menu is innovative and intelligently playful. The atmosphere is elegant and inviting. The service is always reaching beyond exceptional. It is my go to spot for any sort of special treat or when giving a recommendation to visitors (or even locals who want something really good to eat).

Food as DELICIOUS. I had the farm raised chicken and the easy salad and my boyfriend got the brisket, both were unbelievable!! I'm still having dreams about those flavors :) the cocktails were interesting. I had the rocket-ship and some strawberry one they were offering that day. I'm really more of a vodka and tonic girl so I would suggest sticking with your classics here. Overall it was delicious and I cannot wait to go back.

Our group was 2 adults and 2 teenage boys - and there was something for everyone on the menu - deliciousness all around! Yummy soft shell crab and wonderful beef brisket were 2 of the dishes we enjoyed. Crème Brule was amazing! We ate on the patio which only has small tables which was a bit cramped for the 4 of us for dinner - but we made it work :-) Love this place!!!

We really enjoyed our meal at Best Bistro and the service was personable and efficient. The starter we had, the Shrimp and Grits, was excellent and full of flavours. Our mains were okay. The Steak And Frites was mainly Frites though the beef was well cooked. There was a gravy that spoiled the flavour though. Not sure what it was supposed to taste of. The Frites part were overcooked, maybe twice cooked. My wife's chicken was very enjoyable though. Nice wine list although a little overpriced and not generous sizes. The place itself is very pleasant and modern and is good place for sociable as well as more romantic assignations.
