Absolutely fantastic! We had the private Bustins room all to ourselves which was quite lovely. Our server was fantastic!; very knowledgeable, relatable, funny and efficient. We loved that those with our group who had several different dietary restrictions were accommodated perfectly!
Overall a good dining experience! Definitely ranks up there with my preferred dining establishments in Atlantic Canada... will be back for sure!
We had our children home for March Break and it was International Womens Day, it was the perfect place to share a meal and conversation with our adult children. Thanks for the great meal and the excellent atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant run by lovely people !!! Food was perfect, only difficult was choosing from all of the great options...!!
Had a wonderful evening at IBN ! Service and food were excellent.
Loved our window table!
I was disappointed and had such high hopes for this restaurant. Maybe too high. Was disappointed with the food. It was ok but nothing to get excited about. We had reservations for 7 and it was 8:50 before we had our meals. Just hoped for better 😢
The entire evening was awesome! Great food, lots of laughs, awesome atmosphere and good service!
Absolutely amazing. Beautiful setting. Amazing food. Enough said. Go check it out. You won’t regret it.
I really wish I had paid attention to our waiter's name because he made the experience fantastic. He had great recommendations and was very friendly and humorous. The food was fantastic, starting with the appetizer and finishing with dessert.
This restaurant was recommended to me, and I will certainly recommend it to others.
I have been dinning at this restaurant almost on a weekly basis due to my business trips to Saint John, most of the time accompanied by business colleagues. I return to it primarily for the excellent attention we get from the service personnel and the quality of the food. The simplicity of the decor and ambient is actually a plus. Prices are much the same as in other local restaurants so I prefer Italian by Night for all of the above.
Fantastic night out with a girlfriend. Food was fantastic. Service was efficient and friendly. I love IBN for almost every occasion. Thank you!
We absolutely loved IBN! It was our first time and I will definitely go back. The apps and main dish were delicious. Dessert was a bit disappointing as it was a very tough meringue due to it being served on warm plates. We were not able to eat it, as not even our butter knives would not cut through. This would not stop me from going back. The drinks were fantastic!
It was not our first visit at this restaurant. We have been there before a couple of times. First of all the website didn’t mention anything regarding the new chop chop menu with almost no selection options for the main course. When you visit a restaurant for a special occasion you expect to get something special and not a three course business meal for your special evening.
Regarding your service, feels like waiting 40 minutes to get your main dish after you finish an appetizer, especially with kids and then you get your coffee almost ice cold with no sugar or sweetener offered makes your experience even better than the quality of food you are offered by this lovely place.
Just want to mention that on our previous visits to this restaurant we enjoyed the food and the service was great.
Chop chop : nice selection.
New wait staff: he’s trying hard, appears eager to please.
Table was a bit big for 6 , however all reservations taken so I understand why we had this table.
we went for chop chop. it was one of the best meals I've ever had! and wonderful service from liane.
Was a great evening and meal
Went for Chop-Chop week, their diner 3 course meal was the best in town. This restaurant never disappoints.
We were a party of six and were met by our hostess and seated promptly to a beautifully set table. The food was excellent and our server George was very attentive. It was a wonderful night out with friends. We have eaten here several times in the past and it has never been anything but fantastic.
Wonderful evening! Everything was excellent
IBN continues to outperform on every measure! Our meal for this Chop Chop dinner was tasty, beautiful, fresh, authentic and outstanding value.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Second time there - we will return!
Perry was phenomenal!!! He took great care of our party of 8
Everything from the atmosphere to the meal was amazing. The decor is simply beautiful, the staff are professional in customer service. I was there with my son, sister and her to sons and we will most definitely be back with probably more people. Best restaurant in Saint John by far. Cannot wait to be back. Thank you for the wonderful experience.
Food was delicious! Plates loader with fresh seafood and quality ingredients. Authentic Italian cuisine. Two options were not available from the menu at our time of arrival (5:30 pm) - mussels appetizer and lobster entrée. Service was good, server seemed impatient to take our order of drinks and meal, which is odd as we had just sat down. Waiting time between appetizer and entrée was +30 minutes. However, we will definitely be back for another date night.
It was a lovely evening! Enjoyed it so much Friday that I went back Saturday!! Everything was amazing. The beet, green apple salad was spectacular.
I had heard a lot about this restaurant from friends but it was my first time going. The food was AMAZING!! and the price was great! I will be returning! And letting everyone how great it was
Lovely atmosphere. Helpful wait staff. Awesome food!
The food was amazing, everything was fresh and full of flavour!
I wouldn’t go again on a Friday night as it was to loud for me but I’ll definitely be going back! The service was pretty good as well!
The food was exceptional; however, the service and attention from the staff made the evening truly amazing. We could not get a reservation until 9 pm but got a call from the restaurant at 8 letting us know they had a table is we were interested. I know no restaurant that would ever do that. It was a lovely evening.
Good was delicious and the pasta was very fresh!
The portions were small for the price but the quality was great!
We very much enjoyed our experience for dinner. The food was fantastic but would like to share some feedback and a couple of things we were disappointed with. The appetizer we got was basically meatballs with veal and sauce. We were given 1 small piece of bread with two of us eating. I expected for an Italian restaurant to have an abundance of bread that comes to the table as part of the meal, to match any Italian household. We asked for more bread and were brought 4 small pieces. Then we got the bill and were charged $8 for the bread. Our meal and drinks were over $100 to begin with and were very disappointed that bread was charged for. We have no problem paying good money for a meal like this, as the meal was wonderful but I really think this restaurant is missing the boat providing a true Italian experience being bread, balsamic vinegar and olive oil as a standard on every table (at no additional charge).
Well thought out ambience.
A lot of care was spent in the design of the restaurant. The open kitchen is definitely a nice touch. The food in general was very good and well presented. Though the lamb shank one of our party orderd was a little bland. The mussles and calamari starters were especially delicious. And the desserts were very much worth the calories. And the service was attentive and very professional. It’s not cheap if that’s what you are looking for. But hey for a special night out it’s well worth the splurge.
I enjoyed the food and dining experience! I rated the overall as a 4 only because I visited on Valentines day and if you plan to take away the regular menu and only offer a select menu, you should make your customers aware of this when the reservation is made.
Great pizzas and wine on this visit. The margherita is especially good!
I would give this trattoria a 10 star if I could. Everything was nothing short of perfection.
Staff and meal was amazing! Will definitely be returning.
We had such an amazing time! Food was perfect and delicious... our server was great! Very attentive and informative... can’t wait to go back!
Great service, great food, the only thing I was surprise with, it was noisy, not much ambience for an itilian restaurant.
Our food, service, and overall experience was excellent! I will definitely be coming back.
The best food, wine, and service I have ever had. Expensive, but worth every penny!
