Great food and atmosphere. Service was great. Fresh tasting food.
Awesome!!! We enjoyed every aspect of our meal.
Our experience was not good. Our server made several mistakes, including forgetting to put my husband's order in and then being very pushy about what he "should" order that would be quicker, which still didnt come out of the kitchen until the rest of our party was nearly done. She said she would make it up somehow on the bill, and her solution was to give him a beer that he never asked for. The restaurant was busy that evening, however, no excuse for her several inadquacies. Her first mistake was telling us we had the table until 8:45. Our resrvation was at 8:00.... so needless to say, we did not feel like valued patrons. It was our first visit to IBN, and most likely our last. I could go into more detail but text is limited.
We had an enjoyable evening with our group of 5 family members. Our waitress was very friendly. Food was very good. Restaurant was quite loud and a little difficult to have a conversation as it was hard to gear others at our table. Our experience was very nice.
Fantastic experience for a quick coffee and dessert for 8 people.
Great food, even better server! Blanking on her name, but she had short blonde funky hair, hilarious personality. It was mentioned that it was my birthday. She made me feel very special!
This was my first time at Italian by Night. Several friends had recommended this restaurant. The service was excellent and the food was ready very quickly. We were not rushed or felt obligated to leave once we finished our meal. I felt it was a bit expensive for the portion size and what the meal consisted of. But overall I enjoyed the evening.
Amazing food served with style in a lively, chic setting.
All was well
As always, IBN does not disappoint!
Restaurant experience excellent. OpenTable experience not as great. I booked and received a confirmed reservation time for 6:30 p.m. However, learned that what is showing as available on-line may not always be the case. Restaurant called that day and did their best to accommodate however, reservation had to be moved to 8 pm which was much later than anticipated.
The food was exquisite and the service was outstanding! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a special fine dining experience. Great for special occasions, business luncheons or dinners, romantic dinners, or anyone just wanting to show off what our fine city has to offer! If you haven't been there yet, you are missing out!
Celebrating my wife's birthday, they saved us a wonderful window table and brought her a glass of presecco. .
Great restaurant! Wonderful food, service and atmosphere. Will definitely be going regularly and would recommend to anybody looking for a great meal.
Love this place!!! It was packed and we were sat next to a large party celebrating a wedding. It’s was loud and busy cause we were stuck in the middle between the large party, kitchen and server station. So for our date night as a table of two, the placement of us wasn’t in the best location. Either way we enjoyed our food very much and our server was amazing.
Everyone is super sweet. It was a pleasure talking to Elizabeth Rowe as well, about potentially having our wedding there. Looking forward to coming back again for dinner and drinks 🥂
We had chefs plate and oh my goodness it was yummy. Excellent meal
Amazing food, great atmosphere and fantastic staff
Food was quite salty but the table was
Perfect and the service was great!
The scallop pasta dish was amazing!
Great experience. Food was was unreal. Personalized service at Chef’s table. A very special evening!
Great spot but with a large group it is hard to hear everyone due to the loud noise and lengthy tables, I would recommend this restaurant for a nice date on the more expensive side but delicious and gorgeous!
Not our first time here, in fact one of our go to options for date night. The ambiance is great, service top notch and the kitchen always does a great job pushing food out on time. We started off with the beef carpaccio which was very fresh but a little under seasoned, would still order again though. I got the penne with scallops and bacon and it was delicious! My wife got the chicken Alfredo which was still really good but the chicken was... odd? Possibly pre-cooked and reheated or over cooked. Probably wouldn’t get that dish again.. overall our evening was lovely and we will certainly be back!
40th Birthday party! Great night out. So thankful to have this place in SJ!
We had a great time. Food was excellent.Creative, interesting plating; right amount of spice. Nice to have Liz drop by for chat. Looking forward to next time.
Great spot in saint john for a date. My girlfriend and I enjoyed the experience.
IBN is a lovely place to dine. The only draw back is that it was very loud, and we had trouble having a conversation at the table. Food was wonderful. Will definately go back!!
We sat at the chefs table, so we were able to see all the different dishes leaving the kitchen. It actually made the decision harder since everything looked so good. Lobster Gnocchi was incredible, Lasagna was delicious as well. The wife and I always order something different then share. Only regret is not finding this restaurant earlier in our 10 day stay.
While the food and service were good, this was the first time I’ve seen a minimum tip of 18% on the machine. That translates to a $40 tip for service to our table of 4. I thought that was too much to expect for what was provided.
All food was incredible and amazing service. Our favourite for special occasions. the ambiance is perfect.
Highly Recommend!! When we arrive The Staff are Hands on making you Feel Welcome!! The Food is full of Flavor and we Love the Atmosphere..Thanks Again for a Evening that will be remembered..😉
My wife and I went for our 47th Wedding Anniversary and it was our first time there. We had heard good things from family and friends and decided to try it for ourselves on our special occasion! We enjoyed our experience there and would certainly return!!
Couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate our 40th anniversary. We were more than happy with the food, service,and ambiance.
We always enjoy our evening dinners at Italian by Night. The meals are outstanding and our server Abby was always extremely good, professional and friendly. We highly recommend this place.
A friend and I chose to dine here and we had an enjoyable evening. Our server was excellent, he certainly knows how to treat customers. The food was very good, nicely although I just felt there was something missing in flavor, not quite the wow factor I would expect for the high price and not quite the Italian food I am used to. I would visit again for the ambience and excellent service as long as I have the same server!!
Fabulous evening as always. Love the food, love the staff, love the ambiance. What more could a girl ask for. Thank you!
We had the Chop Chop Dinner Menu,it was all wonderful except for the dessert where the meringue was like tough nougat,however the apple topping was marvelous and near compensated for the dental filling extracting meringue.
Wonderful meal for Chop Chop week in uptown SJ ...always stunning there.
Our food was great, but we were a bit disappointed you only had the chop chop menu available. We were not aware of that when we made our reservation because at other restaurants the full menu is still available during chop chop week. My husband was really looking forward to the lamb which is his favourite menu item and was specifically why we went. Still received great service though.
We had a bit of a wait, even with a reservation, but the food and service made up for it. Chop Chop menu was delicious and all of the staff are very friendly and efficient. I love Italian By Night and it is our first pick when we want something special.
It was our first time there, but it won't be the last. The food was excellent, however we found the pizza to be quite salty. That being said we most certainly will recommend this restaurant to friends and strangers. Our server was absolutely wonderful. We will be back.
