If you have a need for a special occassion restaurant in Chattanooga, and you're just not sure where to go, RUN (don't walk) to St. John's. You WILL NOT be disappointed. If you just can't believe that there would be an excellent gourmet dining experience in Chattanooga, please believe me! This restaurant would hold it's own in bigger cities like Atlanta and would blow the others out of the water in Nashville. Needless to say, I was pleasantly surprised - the wine list was well representative of vaying appellations, the menu had me indecisive, the service was attentive, but the food and presentation was everything fine dining should be. Fresh fish, unexpected cuts of meat, perfect desserts...
Pros: downtown locale, historic building, divine menu
Cons: needs more parking
