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.

Excellent meal in a quaint location. Our meal started with a complimentary mushroom soup-it was outstanding. One of selected the halibut and the other the prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin. Both were well prepared, attractive and tasty. This chef thinks outside the box when it comes to food selections. Highly recommend the restaurant. One side note we went at 6 pm... More

Great place for a more upscale meal in Saint John- we all did the five course tasting menu and liked all the chef's creations- service friendly and nice. It was a quiet nite and not crowded.

Our dinner was outstanding. By far the best we have had during our two week stay in the Maritimes. The meal began with a surprise, namely, a foie gras-centered amuse bouche. The rack of lamb was perfectly seasoned and cooked (we asked for medium rare). It came with a fantastic potato goat cheese gratin. The orange-glazed halibut was also cooked... More

Great restaurant, the food was awesome, even if slow coming to the table on a slow night. But we weren't there for fast food, so did not mind.

Ate there for Chop Chop week in Saint John. The food was excellent and the atmosphere was great! I would definitely recommend it for a more expensive night out.

Decimal 81 continues to produce some of the best food in the city, but service (at brunch, anyway) is quite slow. The price for brunch provides exceptional value — just plan to make a leisurely morning of it. The atmosphere has changed since my last visit: among other things, the glass cabinet near the bar that used to display a... More
