Upon arriving at Urban Deli we were told it would be a half hour wait. When we asked where we should wait, the hostess seemed confused. She told us to come back in 20-30 minutes, so we did, and were seated quickly. Maybe waitlists are new to this restaurant? Anyway, the food is FANTASTIC. I had a salmon sandwich and... More

The food is excellent, precise, and well executed. They run an old world wine program with unbeatable prices. And the staff - perfect! I'd say this place is a must if you find yourself in Saint John.

Awesome food, large portions, popular place with the local businesses. Priced reasonably. Staff are most friendly and service outstanding. A must visit if your in the downtown area.

Not sure where to start. Absolutely wondering how this restaurant has managed to get the reviews it has. My husband and I had our first and last lunch at the Urban Deli today. The restaurant was dark, dirty and full of flies- likely because both the front and back doors were left wide open. You almost trip over old fans... More

We got takeout sandwiches from here, but I wish that we had eaten in as the interior of the deli itself was a nice respite from the heat outside. It's pretty dark inside, but in a relaxing way, rather than being oppressive. We got turkey club and vegetarian sandwiches with sides. The sandwiches were both flavourful and the sides complemented... More

I have eaten here many times and usually the food is great. This time I tried the Cobb Salad which was a new addition to the menu. I wouldn't recommend it. It was no better than take out at your local grocery store. It was fine, just not up the standard I have come to expect at the Urban Deli.... More

We ate lunch here and it was to die for. The restaurant itself is small but I liked it because it wasn't loud. I had the triple decker grilled cheese and my boyfriend had the club and both were mouth watering. If you get the chance definitely eat here!

My wife and I just wanted something simple (and she is gluten free), and we happened to walk by the Urban Deli and saw the menu. We decided to give it a shot and was completely blown away by just how wonderful the food was. Great service, nice atmosphere, and fantastic food. I would seriously consider driving 4-hours from Halifax... More

Description
Urban Deli lives up to it's tag line of 'old fashioned. Slightly sophisticated'. We love to put a spin on some favourite old fashioned dishes like our popular meatloaf sandwich. We have the deli classics like Montreal Smoked Meat and our popular Reuben Sandwich. Urban Deli was featured on the Canadian Food Network's 'You Gotta Eat Here' featuring our Muffuletta & Uptown Big Beef Bad Boy sandwiches and our famous lemon sour cream pie, which has travelled as far as Alberta & Ontario. We also offer catering for lunch or private functions. If you are craving something other than deli, see Italian by Night for our authentic Tuscan Style Italian menu for dinner.
