FANTASTIC RESTAURANT

Went to one of my favourite restaurants last night for the Chop-Chop 2015 Restaurant week which gives you three courses for only $31.00. The appetizer I had was a delicious ceasar salad. The main course was pork belly that was absolutely wonderful and capped it off with sticky date pudding (good... read more

Always wanted to try Decimal 81 and got round to it during winter chop-chop 2015....and was it a disappointment. The food itself was very average to say the least. At our table of four, the majority of food came to table cold. This was for starters and main course. We also found the food very bland, the biggest disappointment. The... More

My wife and I had supper there last night to celebrate her birthday . We made a reservation for 6 pm but for the first 45 minutes we had the place to our selves. Very comfortable atmosphere. The apertizers were great. I had the sea scallops, my wife had the roasted acorne squash. Both were really good. For the main... More

We finally got around to trying Decimal 81, and are so glad we did. Visited for an anniversary dinner and both of us tried the chef's 5 course tasting menu. Everything was excellent, with unique combinations and flavors (who knew a beet reduction would be so tasty?). Our server was super friendly and obviously enthusiastic about the restaurant and the...

We finally made it to Decimal 81. We decided to try here for "ChopChop". The service, food and atmosphere was fantastic! Everyone ooh'ed and ahh'ed throughout each course and we all left very full and very happy! Be sure to try it out if you haven't yet.

As a gourmande, I am picky about what and where I eat. I eat at Decimal 81 as often as I can, which isn't near often enough! Everything is delicious- made from fresh, quality ingredients and prepared with the skill and care it deserves. The menu is small but complete. The 5 and 7 course chefs choice tasting menus are...

Loved the restaurant...small and intimate...exceptional service..I had the steak, my dining partner had the scallops. Both were cooked to perfection. Non rushed, background music was perfect music and not too loud...One of the best dining experiences in a long time. Well worth the stop.

Recently my wife and I along with our daughter and her partner had dinner here. We called the day before and made a reservation for the next night. We arrived promptly at our reserved time. The resturant is small with only approx 8-10 tables. The food was above average but the service was terrible and SLOW. We received our main... More

We had the 7 course chef's choice tasting menu and it was awesome. Every bite was delicious. The best restaurant in Saint John by far. I gave the service a 4 though because there was only 3 tables in the restaurant and the server did not check on our drinks often and I had to flag her down to order... More

For a city not known for great restaurants, this is an excellent choice for delicious food and excellent service. Everything is freshly prepared and beautifully served. Appetizers, main courses and deserts were uniformly superb. If I lived in Saint John, I would be a very frequent client.
