This is a good restaurant offering locally sourced ingredients. They always have a vegetarian option in the entree and appetizers. It can be crowded on weekends so reservation would be advised. Love the fried green tomatoes! It's a little expensive for Chattanooga.....entrees generally between 15-$20. Nice wine list. A great location right in the middle of the tourist area downtown...

While I've had lunch at 212 many times over the years, this is the first time we've been for dinner. The food is always delicious and fresh (212 is probably the original "farm to table" restaurant in Chattanooga). Our waitress was attentive and did not rush us. I ordered the Brussels Sprouts salad and the Cheese & Spinach Ravioli. Excellent!... More

We ate lunch here twice during the holidays. Both times the food was exceptional. I started with the seafood bisque..it was amazing. I had the chicken picatta with sautéed spinach. It was very fresh and seasoned well. The chef fresh ingredients and the dishes are simply delicious. I finished my meal with the peanut butter pie. Oh my goodness it... More

We called and made reservations for Thanksgiving. They were very helpful with any questions I had concerning the menu and seating. We had never eat out on Thanksgiving before this and was unsure and nervous of how the day would turn out. We arrived and was seated promptly. Our server was wonderful and the food was excellent! I can't say... More

This was our second visit to 212 Market and we were very pleased with our meals -- the calamari appetizer was a delicious twist on a standard and it was plenty for 3 of us to savor! We all had seafood dishes with interesting sides and the trout with grits and caramelized onions was a standout! Easy and pleasant walk... More

My wife, son and I went there for dinner last night and it was the BEST food I had in a long while! We had the calamari which was the most tender calamari I've ever had, and I am from Florida so i do know seafood. After that my wife had the trout with chimichurri and blue cheese mash potatoes,...

We went all out. Started with the seafood bisque, Bison Spring Rolls and BLT flatbread. The bisque was amazing, so amazing that I ordered 2 more bowls to take home for lunch the next day. The spring roll was tasty and so was the Flatbread. next was a Caesar, it was OK not as creamy as I like but not... More

Very nice atmosphere, friendly service. But the food was ok, I ordered the springer Mountain chicken which was over cooked and a bit dry. For the price we paid I expected better quality of food. Maybe next time we'll try their lunch.
