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

A comfortable, calm atmosphere, with attentive, non- intrusive staff. An excellent wine list and a varied, very creative menu featuring Classic French & Italian styles of cuisine, with a healthy dash of local recipes. The chef uses local ingredients to produce very tasty dishes - I've eaten here many times and have always been delighted. Don't miss it if you... More

I have eaten here 3 times and each time and the quality of food and service is fantastic. Every course is delicious. I have never had a disappointing dish here. The service strikes the right balance of being attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere is nice as well. This is not a big restaurant, so is calm place to eat,... More

The restaurant is small! Its cozy and a lovely conversion of the space! I don't think it seats more than 20 people, so the staff are able to concentrate on the guests! GO FIGURE! "French Inspired Food" was delicious, my girlfriend and I went for the annual "chop chop festival" that bridges the slow seasons for restaurants, and allows them... More
