My husband and I made an unexpected stop in St. John on our way to the north of the province. We asked the hotel staff for recommendations for places to have dinner. We were given several locations (including the Urban Deli) and directions to each. Another hotel guest overheard our exchange with the staff about where to eat and chimed... More

This is a great charming little spot in Saint John. I was there with my family sharing some memories, but the UD would also make a great place for a romantic dinner. The food was cooked superbly. The hostess, spot on with her presentation and delivery. Thanks so much.

Our family had lunch here on a gloomy, rainy weekday. We had read reviews and easily found it near the City Market. A small place, but friendly staff who encouraged us to wait a few minutes for a table. We did and our young daughter, who was weary from walking in the cold damp weather, was rewarded with a yummy...

My husband & I were downtown St John and asked a local person where to get good food. She mentioned Urban Deli and that was a great choice. The food was fresh, not too salty and the service was super! Price was very reasonable too.

The food was made with fresh ingredients and the recipes tasted gourmet without the high price. Great place for a quick lunch.

This is a great place. The quaint building provides a warm inviting setting and the service is great. We had a wonderful lunch there of delicious tomato soup, and thick sandwiches loaded with fresh ingredients. Mine was chicken and grilled veggies and my wife's was a vegetarian. When she discovered that there were hot chillies on hers that were too... More

We reserved a private table and celebrated our 49th anniversary with a meal as good as the stated by so many previous reviews. The meatloaf and the smoked meat sandwiches were delicious and their special lemon pie was very satisfying.Beverages were served with a distinctive container and the waitress was very competent in her work. We'll go back again for... More

We went for our anniversary dinner and were pleasantly surprised when we were given a free beverage to help us celebrate. The staff were very efficient and friendly. Although small in area, our table was still intimate and the ambiance in the room was very pleasant. We will go again to enjoy the great food.

I thought the severs was great! fun and friendy.The braised beef was out standing and perfectly seasoned, I just was not sure why they did not seasoned the potatoes with some salt, they were bland because of this. Im only saying this because Urban Deli is considered one of saint johns premier restaurants.

I walked into Urban Deli a few years ago & they had the most friendly staff ever! I could tell how dedicated one server was to her business. I notice everytime i walk by it's usual packed with people. If you are going to this place for the first time i highly recommend a reservation if it's around lunch time!... More
