I was here last month for lunch and while it was good, it was not up to the reputation that it seems to have gained. I admit my expectations were high but that was not to be. The person I was with had the fennel salad and it was 90% Fennel. Just out of proportion. i had a sandwich that... More

Our favourite place to eat. Great food, great price, great atmosphere. But bring back dinner! Sometimes we want an Urban Deli fix for dinner! This restaurant changes to Italian by Night for the evening and it's just okay and not the same menu of deliciousness.

We ended up with last minute reservations here on NYE and it was everything we could have asked for. The 4 courses were delicious, the price was excellent and the service outstanding. We can't wait to return and try out the regular menu!

Love this little gold mine! Every meal I have had here I loved. Favourite lunch item would have to be the triple decker grilled cheese. I have also come in for the Italian by night... SO GOOD! So much flavour, beautiful quality and you can tell that whoever it is that prepares the food takes some pride in what they... More

Phenomenal sandwiches! Love the quinoa salad also. Just wish the restaurant was bigger. Also would like it if you could order the sandwiches etc during the evening because they serve Italian after 5

Went with a work colleague for lunch - made reservations, prior. Had the Mediterranean Sandwich and Quinoa Salad and both were delicious. Had both before and it is always very consistent. Service is always quick and friendly. Can't wait to try Italian by Night.

The Meatloaf sandwich. Just order it. Trust me. The taste is amazing, and you will LOVE it! I've eaten here a few times, and we get The Urban Deli to cater a few functions at work, and I am looking for this sandwich every time.

They are a small place so it gets crowded. I had the meatloaf sandwich with Quinoa Salad. The bread was grilled (ala grilled cheese) and the meatloaf came with melted cheese. Simply too greasy. The salad was fine. Service was fine although the staff seemed harried.

My wife and I shared a bowl of split pea soup which was delicious. I had the Tuna steak burger which was very good. We had the window seat and enjoyed downtown Saint John while dining. Great food; good service; pleasant atmosphere!

We tested the Urban Deli at both lunch and dinner on separate days, finding it to be a great choice. The evening meal is called Italian By Night and features a completely different menu and style. Also, the evening meal is a bit pricy, but we loved the food and the atmosphere. We tried the seafood risotto and the grilled... More
