Great service and food ! Great place in Saint John
What an ideal spot for a night out. Parents looking for date night -- this is it! Reconnect in a beautiful ambience and experience delicious food you never seem to have time to make for yourself throughout all the chaos in your life. So very good, each and every time. Never disappoints!
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. One our best evenings out
It was very cold, friendly attentive staff, food was delicious, steak was great.
It would be nice to have an option of smaller portions for children.
Chocolate torte was very sweet for a dark chocolate desert.
As always a beautiful night. Great food, lovely setting, great service. Never disappoints
Fabulous meal and excellent service. We had a great night.
I went to Italian by Night with my fiancé for a dinner out. The service was quite slow which meant we didn’t haven enough time to order dessert as there was another reservation after ours. The food was good but we were disappointed in the slow service.
Our first time eating at Italian by Night and will definitely be returning.
The food was outstanding, the service was excellent and the ambiance was great.
It is a bit more expensive than most other restaurants in the city, but you get what you pay for and it was worth every penny.
The environment is good. The lamb is delicious.I think I will try it next time.
Anniversary dinner. Very tasty. Excellent service. Pleasant ambience
The food was wonderful. Our server couldn’t have been better. Lovely meal and great service.
The food was well prepared, described well by the waitress and was authentically Italian, a real taste treat and an enjoyable night out for our anniversary dinner. Highly recommend Italian by Night!!
Food is superb and the service is excellent! Will definitely go again when back in Saint John!
The food was above and beyond, the beef tenderloin was perfection and the Scallops and Shrimp were large and cooked (flavored) to perfection also. Extremely satisfied with everything.
Food was excellent! It was my father's 80th birthday supper and he was treated to a complimentary glass of bubbly. Service was on point. Friendly and helpful along with checking to ensure all was well.
The tables were spread out so we felt safe. The food was excellent. We booked our reservation online and that was an easy process. Our waitress was excellent....friendly and attentive but not too attentive.
The food was delicious. The meal was late/slow being delivered... 1 1/2 hours from placement of order. The staff were concerned that it was tight for us to order dessert as another party would be along for our table. This was not to discredit the servers, who are under pressure to accommodate reservations. The long wait for dinner would have been more enjoyable if we could have conversed easier but the noise made conversation across the table difficult. Not the best venue for our party as we were seniors, some with hearing and speaking problems. I would recommend it for younger couples.
Nestled in the Heart of Uptown Saint John
Beautifully decorated with amazing ambiance
Food was delicious, very fresh, served hot
Bathrooms were extremely clean
Service was very friendly but very professional
Party of 8 to celebrating a retirement an awesome experience!!!
Our waitress completely unobtrusively kept our wine glasses filled. Excellent service.
Server was amazing. The place was packed and our table of 4 never noticed a delay. Food came quickly and was delicious.
We have celebrated birthdays, anniversaries and special moments here for over a year and we have literally never had a bad experience. In fact, every single time we have dined here it has been memorable and wonderful. The ambiance, the food, the wine selections and especially the staff.
Love LeeAnne, hope I’ve spelled her name correctly. Lovely meal, fantastic service!!
First time back since having a poor experience 3 years ago with an incredibly ignorant wait staff. An underwhelming experience with subpar food given the price.
We were at a large table, and had trouble hearing each other over the noise. Otherwise, it was a great evening, great food, excellent service.
Superb food and service. We're from out-of-town, but while in Saint John we always eat at IbN. We would recommend this fine dining restaurant to anyone seeking the most delicious Italian cuisine.
Always very consistent with great food excellent friendly service and cool ambience!
I would for sure recommend there food is so delicious, service is amazing, over all great experience!
Another excellent evening at Italian by Night. Our waiter Michael took exceptional care of us.
The first time visiting Saint John and I decided to try Italian By Night. The restaurant was extremely busy to the point that when I arrived 10min before my reservation time, their waiting area was full, so I was told to wait outside until the exact time of my reservation. The atmosphere was pretty loud, certainly much louder than I anticipated.
The server was terrific and super friendly. I started with bruschetta and the carpaccio first as appetizers; the bruschetta was mediocre, I’ve had better, but the carpaccio was delicious. I would recommend it.
I didn’t want their Scollop Carbonara, so I asked if they could make it a regular bacon Carbonara, and the server said that wasn’t a problem. Again, the pasta was nothing special, it was like regular pasta anywhere else, but it was still good. It was served very hot and fresh, which was great.
As for the dessert menu, I ordered four because I wasn’t sure when I would be revisiting Saint John and wanted to try as many as possible. The dessert was probably the best part of the meal. The Pavlova was nothing special, but the apple and caramel were yummy! However, the Torta, which is the rich dark chocolate torte with raspberry coulis and whipped cream, and the Crème Brûlée were both the best by far and fantastic!
My least favorite dessert was the Tiramisu.
Overall, Italian By Night is nice and fancy for Saint John because there is nothing here, but if this restaurant was in Toronto or any other major city, it would be a regular restaurant with a few great dishes.
Good service , great food and the portions were surprisingly large
Everything was fabulous. The food, the wine, the service. Our waiter Michael was amazing and was always right there if we needed something
Great experience! Really appreciated the Prosecco glass on the house for our anniversary. Thanks a million! ☺️
The food was good and so was the service but the price is too much considering the portion. I feel that when you go to a Italian restaurant you should at least get a roll with your meal.
My husband got the chicken parmigiana and I got Alfredo..24$ for a bowl of Alfredo seems steep to me.
Great food, great service as always. A sure bet!!
It was a delicious meal with fine service. The atmosphere was relaxing. We felt very safe during these pandemic times.
Enjoyed our first date night out since having our child, and it was a wonderful experience. We’ve been here several times but our first time being served by Abby who was above and beyond! Thank you for making it special!
Everything was great !! The service was excellent
Fantastic quality. Very good menu selections. Our waitress ,Dorthy, was so friendly and upbeat. She helped us with our food and wine choices which were perfect. We highly recommend your restaurant and look forward to going back.
Great service and ambiance. Calamari was very chewy. Seafood pasta dish was not in white wine sauce but in a broth. Wine was good. In my opinion over priced for what we ate.
