IBN is an incredible restaurant in Saint John that provides an amazing eating experience. The menu has a great selection and the Staff is simply amazing. Best restaurant in Saint John.
Excellent as always. Great food and great ambiance one of our favourites
Wonderful service, amazing food and great atmosphere! Helped to make our 1st Anniversary a special one
Wonderful food and service
Very nice atmosphere, pleasant waitress and food was very good.
Great spot for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, a touch pricier than some restaurants but certainly reasonable - will be back sooner rather than later!
Nice restaurant, a bit loud with great service and food. A bit on the expensive side for everyday dining but well worth a visit for an occasion.
Daniel is an amazing server! Not only is he good looking but he’s suave and knowledgeable in the service industry. Excellent evening out!
Charcuterie platter for two was one of two highlights. The other was our waitress Dorothy. She was superb and made the night special. The pasta was okay, better than many, not as good as Italy 🙂. Pavlova for dessert was large enough for two and delicious. Presentation was top notch and all in all a great experience. The martini was also excellent. Hendricks and proper olives! A special nod to Dorothy who was professional and fun!
Great meal and service. Only one complaint. No nice bread and balsamic/olive oil. First Italian restaurant where it wasnt offered.
George is amazing! Food is very good. Noise level is loud.
Awesome place for a girls night get together! We will definitely be back.
IBN never disappoints. We shared the Lobster Gnocchi as a starter and it was delicious. Service was great. Love the ambiance.
It was a pleasure to bring our sister and brother-in-law from New York for dinner. They have
heard us talk about the restaurant and were excited to try. We were not disappointed.
Italian By Night was a fun, lively dining experience. Our server was not only knowledgeable, but pleasant, friendly, and very helpful.
The food was very good and ample portions.
We love Italian by Night. It is my number one recommendation for a great dinner out in Saint John!
Good service, great food, very noisy. Very hard to hear and talk to those at our own table.
Food was very good. Waitstaff friendly but harried. Loved the interior of restaurant. Unfortunately the ambient noise level precluded anything other than shouted communication. That spoiled the entire experience for my wife and me.
The meatball appetizer was excellent and the Marguerite pizza was very good. We had good service but the restaurant got very busy and noisy after 6:30.
Fine food in good central Saint John location. Reservation is a good idea. Very noisy on Friday night, so conversation is difficult until late. Service attentive but overwhelmed when dining room is full: aperitif not delivered until second reminder; main nearly forgotten; dessert menu literally slapped down by server rushing past. Food quite good and can be served Italian style: starter, pasta primi, meat or fish secondi, dolce. Drinks and wines varied, many by the glass in smaller/larger sizes. Simple polpetti in a good red sauce, excellent spinach salad, al dente fetuccini pesto (oddly with potato), richly sauced osso bucco with outstanding fried polenta, good tiramisu. Add coffees, bottle of sparkling water, and glasses of wine, and two of us paid $150 before tip for the 90 minute meal.
We were well received, excellent and timely service. All dishes were hot (if applicable) and well presented. Some items were poor value for the contents but overall it is a lovely place with consistent food preparation.
Simply the Best!
Great atmosphere, exceptional service, artistic presentation of outstanding menu items and friendly staff. What more could you ask? Highly recommended for anyone looking for a restaurant that has created a culture where everyone appears to really enjoy being there.
Drove all the way from Moncton was definitely worth the trip.
My girlfriend and I went for "Date Night". We had a fantastic experience. From the décor, ambiance, to the delicious food, and incredible service, we enjoyed it so much. Our server "George", was fast, attentive, friendly, knowledgeable and fun.
Thanks for a great night IBN !!!
enjoyed our dining experience, good food - excellent service
Meals were delicious. Dessert scrumptious! Great experience!
Lovely building, great staff. Food was fair and very expensive.
We were traveling through and found Italian on the internet with great reviews. We were parked a block away so we decided to try it. Our good fortune. I wish I knew our wait person’s name because she was outstanding. She saw there was a mixup as to who was covering our table and she took over - we lucked out.
Food was great. My wife had the gnocchi with lobster and and I had the veal scallopini. Delicious! Portions were abundant, but we couldn’t stop. A wonderful evening
Me and my queen enjoyed our night there service was great and food was good
We will enjoy another evening there soon
Awesome restaurant with amazing food! Everything is always perfect!
Birthday dinner on this visit. As always, excellent food with outstanding service!
Ambient noise level was very high making it difficult to converse with my dinner partner.
It’s always an excellent experience!
Perry was an amazing waiter. It was a wonderful experience for our 10th wedding Anniversary. I think its some of the best service we have ever had in Saint John.
We are from Fredericton. The entire experience was great - ambience, food; drinks, service, it is all outstanding. This was our second opportunity to eat here and I look forward to the third.
The Open Table option was fantastic, so easy to make a reservation, thank you.
I thought I was back in Tuscany; the delicious food was true Italian cuisine. The menu had good options but not extensive and overwhelming. The presentation for all plates was mouthwatering. The staff was very attentive, well dressed, happy, worked well together; all signs of good training. The wine pricing was more reasonable than many lower scale establishments today. I look forward to my next visit.
While traveling through New Brunswick we made a stopover in Saint John and decided to try this restaurant. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice - a well thought out floor plan, open kitchen (which I always enjoy), and an overall cozy and casual atmosphere. We had reservations and were seated right away. The food was good - from the appetizers through dessert everything was consistently good. The service was just okay though. While our server was professional she was not very personable which we found surprising considering this is Atlantic Canada where friendliness abounds. Other than that, this is a restaurant I would recommend. They have a nice variety, reasonable prices and a good wine menu.
Even though we had made our reservation weeks in advance, and specified it was to celebrate our anniversary, we were seated at a table right near the door. We were hoping for a better spot as there were many tables available when we arrived. The service was ok but we were expecting great service as this restaurant came highly recommended.
Excellent food and the staff are rock stars, can't wait to go back.
Wonderful food keeps us coming back. But, as always... Too noisy! Hard to converse with friends and waiters.
