The service was the best we have experienced in a very long time. Service was very attentive, professional, helpful, and experienced. The food was very good. I had the venison, the cheese cake, and the nutella cappuccino. Everything was luscious.

This is a new find for us; we decided to try it after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. It's outstanding. Two of us had a pasta dish, one had fish and one had steak, along with a seasonal salad or soup. The wine list is excellent, and has some unusual finds according to the wine specialist in our group. Service was a highlight, as well. We will return the next time we're in Chattanooga.

The service was excellent. The ambience was beautiful. unfortunately the food was average and nothing special. My wife and I enjoy fine dining but we found the fish which was Halibut dry and overcooked. The brisket was too fatty and the waygu steak was too tough. everything is perfect about this restaurant except the food which unfortunately ruins it. Especially when you consider the price per plate!

We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary at St. John's, and they made us feel special. From the welcome, to Happy Anniversary printed on our menu, all the way to the special drinks and food - it was a wonderful memory!
The brisket was especially delicious, as was the custom made Kentucky Mule made with Woodford Reserve and housemade ginger beer!

We hold this dining spot in high regard, always. This time was not disappointing , except that I actually got the WRONG item! Ordered/pointed to one thing, and got another. I should have taken note and sent it back, but actually it was just fine.

Well done. Beautiful décor, beautiful interior. Phenomenal service and food. Went for anniversary, could not have asked for better. By the way, the home made chips they give you to snack on at the bar are addictive!

We were stopping in Chattanooga on the way home from a two week trip to New England. For a Saturday night the restaurant wasn't overly busy but it had a nice vibe.
The menu was full of great choices. We started with the pimento cheese and smoked trout app, followed by a salad. Both were very good.
My wife had the vegetable spaghetti and I the pork porterhouse. The entrees were nicely played and delicious.
We declined desert and finished our wine.
Excellent service and food was very good.

St. John's Restaurant was the perfect place to celebrate my brother and sister in-laws 50th wedding anniversary! Compliments to all at St. John's for your excellent food and service. The quality of the food was superior with choices to please everyone's taste. A special thanks to Kat who assisted with arrangements including recommending Grafe's who delivered a beautiful bouquet of flowers for our table. We highly recommend St. John's!!! THANK YOU!!!

I made online reservations for my wife's birthday, we had a casual greeting at the door, greeter had no clue reservations were made and for any particular occasion. In my reservations, a request for, if possible, a quiet booth to enjoy her birthday and the evening, we were seated at first table just beyond the front door and next to the bar. We noticed open tables upstairs which would have been more accommodating for the evening. Our server appeared to have worked at the restaurant for some time, but was extremely unaccommodating. An appetizer was ordered, delivered to table without plates or spoon to transfer from bowl to plate, asked another server for service. The two of us ordered a cocktail which were extremely watered down, little alcohol, and overpriced. Red wine selection extremely limited for a single glass, only one Merlot to offer and overpriced. Main course arrived at the table, wife asked for salt and pepper, server stated he would return shortly with the requested, he did not return. Meal was done before the server returned, and still no salt and pepper. Wife's birthday dinner, fish, which she thoroughly enjoys, was way overdone and dry. My Wagyu Beef was cooked to order, but sadly lacking any flavor, extremely bland food. We have heard this is a higher class restaurant, but two of the patrons dressed in street closes and bluejeans which entered and was seated next to us disclaims the level of higher class service. My wife, in her cocktail dress, and myself in business attire did not see this as appropriate. Prior to our departure, a birthday desert had been offered, but turned down. Upon delivery of the check, a small single scoop of ice cream in a bowl was set in front of my wife, this was thoughtful, we both thought the candle on top with a blue stripe down the side did not belong in higher class restaurant setting. Given the HIGH expectations of this restaurant prior to arrival, the evening at this restaurant was a COMPLETE letdown.

St. Johns continues to set the bar high and put our city on the map. It's always a fantastic experience, from the food, to the wine and the ambiance. The waitstaff is prompt and knowledgeable. I've never been disappointed!

My wife and I have dined many times at St. John's. The service is excellent and the menu, though not extensive, is usually imaginative and the food well prepared. We felt that this time the menu was a bit prosaic. Perhaps they are between seasons (we dined in mid August) but the usual surprises that one finds were not there. Still, the meal was excellent and the service as impeccable as always so there was really little to complain about. Our friends thought the meal quite impressive.
