Food - PIZZA - Was amazing (Great Price as Well) Easily Worth 20$

- 30$ Lasanga Tasted Delicious - Wasn't as GRANDE as they made it seem. Felt it was over priced by 8$ or so. At 30$ I shouldn't of been able to finish it. Also paired with some legit Garlic Bread, and not whatever Crunchy String Bread they gave me.

- Lamb taste was delicious but slightly Chewy. Temp of the dish when brought to table was Warm but not Hot.

Our Server Terry nailed it though. (He was a Pro)
Funny and Helpful
Food was quick
Noise level wasn't bad at all.

All in all a (7/10)

In my mind if you are going to charge prices like that you need to nail the food 99% of the time.

The service at Italian by Night was excellent. We were there for our anniversary and the server brought us complimentary champagne to toast with. I had only issues about the evening. I ordered the stuffed ravioli special and it was luke warm at best. I would have thought that at a busy restaurant llike this the food would have been hot upon arrival. Not the case. The portion for the price is also a concern. I watched as peoples meals come out and along with ours the portions are pretty small. I think a couple pieces of bread to dip in the sauce are in order. We travelled from Moncton and stayed in Saint John to specifically have our anniversary dinner here so I was a little disappointed. I may try them again but only if I'm in Saint John for a reason. I will also stick to the pizza as it seems to be the best value for money.

Very attentive server, we commented that the restaurant seemed warm and they responded and we could feel it cool down! Food was fantastic! As we were paying we mentioned we were celebrating my retirement and we were handed 2 glasses if champagne!! Very thoughtful. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Our Caesar salad was just right and the sausage pizza was wonderful (great carmelized onions). The best part was our server Danielle, who can pour a beer like I have never seen!

Service make the difference

We have always had such good meals when we have dined here, however the last time our dishes could have been better. We were the first serving so maybe they rushed our meals so they wouldn’t get behind, but the skin on my salmon was burnt and the potatoes were still hard. The service was excellent and the atmosphere is great so don’t let this review deter you.

We have been to IBN a few times but this time I was very disappointed with the service. My husband struggled to decide on wine and the waiter came to our table 3 times seeing him with the wine menu to take our order but not once offered some help or recommendation. She even struggled to open the bottle. The food was also just average. There was also a band downstairs in the pub that was very load and you could just hear the base the whole time.

Went with my mom to celebrate her birthday. The server brought her a glass of champagne and put a candle in her dessert! Made it very special for us. The food was excellent, wine was delicious, and service was friendly and personable.

Everything was excellent!!

I was a bit surprised by the $12 charge for the small salad
-a substitute for the pizza appetizer.

Overall a good night with friends!

Instead of the chop chop menu, I ordered the sirloin steak. It was perfect. The service was first class. Personally, I would have been more comfortable in the main room instead of the private place in the corner. But I realize if I had reserved earlier I could have requested. That was the only :(Otherwise I had a nice relaxing time.
