Delicious and Delectable food - Briana, our tour guide was so sweet and extremely knowledgeable about the history of Chattanooga. The restaurants were fabulous and the food was fantastic. Briana quizzed us about the places we visited and made it super fun and interactive. She is an absolute gem!

Fun downtown adventure! - We have lived in Chattanooga for 3 years now and we got to try some new to us restaurants on our Downtown tour. Brianna was the PERFECT guide! She shared Chattanooga history as well as some behind the scenes of each of the places we went. We can’t wait to book another tour soon!

Delicious and FUN!!!! - This is a MUST!! We had the most fun group of people and the food and drinks were beyond delectable. Brianna was fantastic. When we come back to Chattanooga we will definitely book another one of the food tours with her! We got to meet 2 of the chefs which made the experience that much better.

Birthday weekend in Chatt - Great place! Clean and comfortable! Walking distance to lots! Relatively quiet for being in the city. Nice patio out back and the covered parking in back was a plus!

Chatt Taste food tour - his was our first time visiting Chattanooga and we stumbled upon Chatt Taste. This was an amazing way to try out different local spots and learn more about Chattanooga. The owner, Bri, was so wonderful and knowledgeable. We tried about 6 different dishes and all of them were phenomenal. The chefs at each stop also came to check in and receive feedback on their dishes. We also really enjoyed having two other couples on the tour with us. It was wonderful getting to chat with them as well. Overall this is an amazing experience, we had plenty of food and it was a great evening. Chef Erin at The Wanderer made a delicious prosciutto tart and the bartender served a delicious drink to go with it. At the Old Gilman Grille we had bacon wrapped dates and a chicken crepe with mushroom sauce. The chef also was very knowledgeable about all of the cocktails and made great recommendations Next we went to Alimentari where the chefs intern, Lorenzo prepared two amazing dishes and paired with a glass of champagne. We finished the night at Paloma where we had 3 more dishes including a dessert the chef is working on to add to the menu. Cannot recommend this tour enough! We will definitely do it again if we are back in Chattanooga!

Delicious 😋 - Keith did great for his first Chatt tasting. He was very friendly and conversations were great. We enjoyed trying all the different foods and hearing about Chattanooga. Bacon wrapped dates were unique and delicious. Our favorite was the chocolate raspberry dessert with the lavender sauce——heavenly. Only suggestion would be to include information about parking—validation or where—that would have helped when unfamiliar with the area.

Not very understanding - We were unable to go the night of- last minute difficulties.Tried to go the next night and I was told we would have to pay for the missed night and full price for tickets if we wanted to go the next night.Seems they could have at least given us some percentage off.Don’t think I will book with them again.
