Great food and service. The noise level has improved, but then there are fewer guests. Certainly felt very safe with all the COVID precautions they have taken.😊

We always look forward to IBN however, we were unfortunately, disappointed with our recent visit. The tables are not six feet apart, the table we were seated was by the door, and I was not six feet from those entering and exiting. The appetizer was over salted, my main, the steak salad was overdressed with a pool of dressing at the bottom of the wilting lettuce that could not stand up to the dressing. My husband’s main course lacked presentation, then finally dessert-the chocolate torte, tasted of burnt sugar.

Food was fine- just "ok"- did not live up to the hype for us. Presentation was nice, nice place/location & staff were wonderful

It was my second time at IBN....this time my partner and I were celebrating our 1 year anniversary. I made my reservation several weeks in advance but our table was right beside the kitchen....not the best table as far as passabyers and traffic. We were hoping for a more “romantic” day table. The food was great....however, our bruschetta was burnt, which we brought to the server’s attention, but she didn’t take it off the bill surprisingly.

We went with friends we have never been, who are both foodies from Ontario. They’re pretty fussy and they loved it, from starter to dessert.

I am GF and Vegetarian and I had the pizza which was the best GF pizza I’ve ever had. My husband gets the same thing every time, he wants to try other things on the menu, he’s just addicted to the lasagna!

I’m addicted to the flourless chocolate cake. They treat you well, it’s clean and the food is good. We also didn’t wait long for our meal

Birthday. It’s hard to talk as there is so much noise . Suggest sound buffers . Aside from that, it was great service and food.

The food was very good - perfectly cooked steak. Vegetables (asparagus) not sufficiently cooked. The wait service was first rate.

Excellent as always but the temperature was a bit too hot. The city isn’t use to being hot and muggy and the A/C was insufficient to keep the place from being hot. A rare occurrence for the city and likely the restaurant too.

We had delicious raviolis and scallops on pasta. The wine was finely tuned to the meals. The server was lively and helpful. We just had a wonderful evening after a full day of hiking.

There was an error on the bill (unnoticed before we left) and they went out of their way to correct it.

Celebrating 2 birthdays with my girlfriends. We could not have enjoyed our experience any more. It was perfection. We felt out of practice making all of the tough food / drink decisions and our server Liz was exactly what we needed. Atmosphere, food & company were all incredible!

Italian By Night is Saint John's best restaurant. We have dined there many times and have never been disappointed. The menu items are changed just enough to make it feel like a new offering every time.

The reduced number of tables has had the effect of reducing the noise level to a manageable level.

The food and service was impeccable. The seating was the worst I’ve ever experienced. We were put in a small room that resembled a dungeon. It was my daughters birthday and I booked well in advance. Also requested a window seat or table in the main area. Was very disappointed in our seating arrangements. Wasn’t pleased at all.
