What a charming reaturant with delightful chef host. From the delicious amuse bouche thru terrific salad with warm pears, excllent fish and duck entrees and a terrific olten lava cake with many other goodies on the plate. Prices are amazingly reasonable for the quality of the food.

Although this place is a small little spot off Prince William St, it certainly is a gem in the uptown area. I never order steak when out and this was the best I have ever had ! The salad was so fresh and flavourful. The goat cheese appetizer was so delicious , I could have eaten it all to myself... More

It's a bistro in St. John, up the hill from the harbour about 10 minutes' walk from the bustle of the harbourfront marketplace. The service can be spotty, and the small bar never heard of Campari or good single malt scotch whisky, coffee is good but not great, but the food is spot on: fresh salads, delicious soups, good choice...

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary this year by going to Decimal 81. The meal was great from start to finish. I tried a new drink which had cinnamon on the rim and it was delicious. Their complimentary small bowl of asparagus soup was very good, sadly not available as a starter so you could have more of it.... More

The stars were all aligned last evening when we had dinner at Decimal 81; we got there a bit on the early side around 7 and basically had the place to ourselves for a little while. We were treated to a delicious amuse bouche of a scallop in an orange glaze. The menu had so many tempting choices, we shared... More

Bland tasting food from a menu that had very little imagination. First and last time I would eat in this restaurant. The waitress who served us was the saving grace for the two star instead of one as she was trying her best to be polite and provide us with a good service. The presentation of the food was boring...

We went as a group of 6 and everyone LOVED their meal. I wouldn't hesitate to go again. The only drawback is that it took about 4.5 hours from start to finish and the wine is quite pricey. Cannot wait to have Arctic Char again!

This restaurant is located in the historical area of St John. It's a 5-10min walk from any of the hotels in the downtown area. I was there with some business colleagues and thought the food was ok. Nothing special nor out of this world.

I worked in Saint John for a week recently, so had the opportunity to try several restaurants, this was the best. A very interesting menu, and all quality food. The scallop appitisers were amazing, the starters I had were like small veal burgers served on small, what seemed like home made buns, and olives and cornichon, they were so tasty.... More
