Service is good, of course that can always depend on the wait staff at the time you are visiting.  The Lunch Crew visited the restaurant with a few extra guests, we were quickly seated and our service was very good.  The dining room has a large set of windows which allows guests to view and/or hear any entertainment which may be occurring in the adjacent Square Room venue.  The food is chef prepared and no flaws were found.  Some may consider the venue pricey but our meals were good.  Under the new Knoxville ordinance, Cafe 4 allows dogs on the patio.  During our visit, we were urged to try the banana pudding for dessert and we were told it was fully made-from scratch.  Believe me, it was delicious. No refrigerated items here, you could taste the fresh vanilla, feel the fluffiness of the whipped cream and the freshly placed vanilla wafers.  If it is available when you visit, I urge you to give it a try.  Cafe 4 has been serving up customers for a few years now and it is a staple business on Market Square.  A Knoxville Icon you might say.
