Anniversary dinner

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... read 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

Raised in Saint John, now living uptown, i have eaten everywhere in the city many times. This place serves the highest quality dinner you can find. If you like good food, with flovours that will almost bring a tear of joy to your eye, this is the place. The first time I went, the service was okay, but not amazing,... More

Loved the five course tasters menu. Surprise at every course. Lots of different tastes and new things to try. Great service and beautifully decorated. Loved the fact that the food was not over salted like most places.

So very surprised by the old, well maintained building and never thought with the name on the door it was the right place. Old Saint John, uptown, just wonderful area to explore. Food was great. Well presentation. Great waiter. Quiet. A lovely place to be!

It pains me to write this as we were here 1 1/2 yr ago and it was fabulous. This was a disaster! We were adventurous and decided to have the seven course chefs drill. Started with bland onion soup, followed quickly by bland over cooked mussels. Then we waited until a mesclun salad arrived drenched in dressing. Then we had... More
