I had the chicken cordon bleu sandwich with quinoa salad. The chicken had a flavourful, light, and crunchy breading and although I probably ate it an hour after it was made it was not soggy. It was topped with shaved ham and melted swiss cheese and was on a fresh piece of ciabatta bread. I love their quinoa salad, it... More

This is an unassuming little place on King St., two-thirds the way up the street. My pea soup with ham was second only to my wife's soup, it was hot, thick, lots of ham, delicious! I also had the Mediterranean sandwich, and loved it! It has ham, tapanade, cheese, tomato, lettuce in perfect proportions. I ate half and the attentive... More

My partner and I decided to have lunch here at the Urban Deli. My choice was the Montreal style bagel with smoked salmon, one of my favorite pleasures. Was told that no bagels were available and maybe a marbled rye bread as a sub would do. So very glad I said fine. Lovely sandwich. And the BC coffee the owner... More

Had the Pork Schnitzel, very tasty. Servers are wonderful and prompt, even when it's busy. Ingredients are fresh and they offer a variety of side dishes. Their deserts are always tasty. My only issue with this restaurant is that it's so hard to get a reservation around my lunch schedule. I've been calling forever and just can't seem to get... More

Urban Deli was our first stop on the Saint John Tripadvisor Challenge journey. Taking the recommendations of others who have reviewed UD, we ordered - and shared - the Montreal-style smoked meat and the Uptown Big Beef Bad Boy. Both were immensely tasty. The smoked meat sandwich was easily the best I've had this side of Montreal. The fries were... More

I have been to the Urban Deli for lunch but this was the first time we had dinner here. They call it Italian at Night. Wow it was great. Great food, great wine, great service. Ace the seafood rizzotto. And the tiramissu is to die for. If you are in the area make reservations and go. You will not be... More

Small spot on the Main Street with deluxe deli menu. Booths + large central dining table make it unique. Pea soup and Reuben were delish.

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.
