St. John's Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Food was great and service was exception ...
Food was great and service was exceptional. The chef, Rebecca came out and spoke with us and even gave us a tip on where to eat the next night and she was spot on! The roasted filet was probably the best steak I have ever eaten. Misty (our server) was knowledgeable and did a great job. It was our 35th anniversary and they made it very special and we could not have been happier with our choice.

I have to say I loved this place in the past. I drive over an hour just to have dinner here. I will say this last trip here was horrible. Service was the worst ever experienced here. We ordered our food it came out wrong, it didnt even come out together. Sent the food back and barely got an apology. We ordered dessert and after waiting 30 min it never came out. We proceeded to tell the waitress we didnt want desserts it had been so long. After a short lack of caring visit from a manager, she took off the first course that was messed up. Over all we were in the restaurant for 2 hours because of the slow service and didnt even get our desserts. Sad to say I may not go back again because of the let down this time.

Noise was really bad, lots of noise coming from the bar, bartender mixing drinks. We were in another room. Food was fantastic! It was our 39th anniversary and it would have been a lot nicer had it not been been for the 90 db level.

I could never say enough good things about our server. When I commented jokingly that I wished to take home a quart of the indescribably good house made apple butter, he brought a dish with a very reasonable serving of that same apple butter that we used to finish off our excellent bread . He answered all of our questions, both subjective and objective, Without hesitation, and with complete confidence. Wonderful meal, good size portions and great value. We always love our experience here.

St. John's certainly lived up to its reputation as the classiest (and tastiest) restaurant in Chattanooga. Excellent menu. Flawless service. It felt good, tasted good and will be remembered by all at her birthday celebration. The menu personalized for the Birthday celebration was an added grace note for the evening...and an unusual keepsake of a memorable time.

Was a very nice restaurant. Food was great and service was great. I just wasn't very fond of the seating arrangements. When making a reservation they should make it to where you are able to pick your seat from an area; since there are three separate eating areas.

St. John's knocked it out of the park! All of the service people were friendly and attentive. We started with a drink at the bar and then had our tab transferred to the table. The wine list was extensive and interesting.
There were 4 in our party and we ordered several different items like scallops for an appetizer, beet salads, wagyu beef , veal chop, and delicious desserts. Everything was outstanding and the service was on point all evening.
Hands down, the best meal we have had in Chattanooga in a long time.

What a beautiful experience. The service was perfect, the food was plated like a piece of art, the service was there when need and not when not. It was so worth the night. So worth the money. The menu's descriptions are even better told to you by your waiter. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Outstanding Birthday celebration with friends at a round table. Shannon was our waiter and he answered all questions about the menu and took very good care of the 5 of us. This is a special restaurant with superb food. It is a bit expensive but worth every cent as this is probably the best restaurant in Chattanooga! My New Zealand Salmon was prepared by Chef Rebecca and it literally melted in my mouth. Dessert was outstanding as well. The Chef came out to our table and I was so glad to report how wonderful my salmon tasted. I look forward to the next special occasion to return to this very special restaurant.

My wife and I went to St. John's for her birthday. We both ordered drinks which were a bit pricey but delicious. We then skipped ahead to our entrees where I got the roasted beef filet (medium-rare) and she got the salmon (medium). I can't speak for her, although she said it was wonderful, but that was the best steak I have had in a long time, possibly ever. Afterwards she got to choose a complimentary dessert, because of her birthday, and I ordered the millionaire's coffee. Overall we had a great experience and will definitely be back.

We have eaten at St. a few times over the years, mainly for special occasions. Would dine here more often but it is a little too pricey for our budget. We can certainly say that our experience was well worth the price! The food was not your normal fare and absolutely delicious! The wait staff was efficient, friendly, and very accommodating. I would highly recommend St. Johns for a great meal in a pleasant atmosphere. The only down side was that the music, jazz, was a little too loud.

This is our second time coming to Chattanooga and dining here. The food is always fantastic. It was a little noisy this time. I think you should have a side that children are allowed in and another said that children are not allowed in.

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.

Excellent service and cuisine. This is the best restaurant in downtown Chattanooga and they continue produce great results. Their attention and service was exemplary. Had an excellent Halibut special the the Free Range Chicken that were cooked perfectly.

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!
