Italian by Night Ratings and Reviews
Perry is the best!!!
Service was attentive ... excellent as always!! The food was excellent and the timing of the courses spot-on ... we were there as a family celebrating wife's birthday. Highly recommend.
The food is good, but the service is not. The hostess was very short with us even though we made a reservation and our table wasn't ready. All of the staff was clearly frantic with how busy the restaurant was, I just feel like maybe they should hire more people if they cannot handle the restaurant at capacity.
Wanted to enjoy a special night with my daughter. The service was terrible, and the food was unbelievably bad.
Best restaurant in the city! Fantastic food, great service and warm ambiance.
keep up the consistent service and charm .Great spot !!
Wonderful atmosphere and service. The food was delicious.
Awesome food!! Best I talion restaurant in St. John. Truly the best Italian restaurant in New Brunswick
We are always happy with the food and the service at IBN. We enjoy the atmosphere and the pace of the meal. We never feel rushed and always feel special, plus the food is always delicious. Our family loves Italian By Night!
This was our first visit. The food was great, the waitress was excellent but the hostess was very rude. The hostess would be the reason we may not choose to come back.
Excellent meal with wonderful service in a very attractive setting!
Off day in the Kitchen, pizza was burnt, usually much better. No fish, just shellfish, the wife is allergic to shellfish, had to eat cheese (got re-flux!)
This was my first time visiting the new location. It's beautiful! We went for the supper chop chop and enjoyed very much! We'll definitely be back.
Wow, we went for the first time this week during Chop Chop and we're very impressed. The service, wait time, delicious options, ambiance, pricing were all excellent. I was mostly impressed with the service, All went above and beyond to make our Chop Chop night a wonderful experience. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. Thank you Italian by Night for an awesome night!
Great spot, walked right in no delays. Pleasant knowledgeable waitress. Would highly recommend.
We attended Chop Chop and was looking forward to the event. The app/ first course was cold, hard and some meats very spicy and made me choke. I noticed that not everyone was served the same types of meat. The main course was “fabulous”! It made the dinner worthwhile . Delicious and plentiful. Although the dessert was quite tasty, it should have been served warmed, having or served cold made it hard. Would love to try IBN again. Overall, a lovely night.
Great food and Atmosphere and our server Perry was the best!! We’ve been to this restaurant twice so far and will be back again before we leave. When you go ask to be in Perry’s section he is on point,entertaining, and really makes you feel taken care of!! Thanks Perry!!!
I love the homemade pasta noodles and gnocci that are made here and some of the sauces are delicious. My favorites are the rose type sauces, pesto sauces and the spicy tomato sauces. The only reason I only gave 3 stars is because I didn't love the pasta dish for the chop chop menu this year. The pasta wasn't freshly made and was pretty bland.
We really enjoyed our meal....the food was excellent as well as the service and the atmosphere was great!
The food was superb and all three of us were very impressed. The only drawback was the deafening noise level which made it difficult for us to talk without shouting . I would not recommend the restaurant for a date or special occaision as it would be impossible to have any sort of intimate dining experience with such an incredibly loud noise level . It was the major drawback for us for a totally enjoyable evening
My favourite place in the city. Delicious unique food for this area. Lovely atmosphere. Great wine!
I took my S/O out for her birthday dinner, and we had one of the nicest date nights we've had in a long time. The food was exquisite, the service was incredible, the drinks were fabulous, and the atmosphere and mood were perfect. I would highly recommend it to friends looking for somewhere to eat for a special occasion.
First time visit and definitely not last. The whole dining experience lived up to the great reviews we heard about from friends. From starters, to entrees to dessert, food was exceptional. Service was amazing and attentive. My wife and I had a glass of wine each. I am not much of a drinker but the wine I had was very good. My wife didn’t really like her wine so our waitress arranged for a different wine to be served. Trout was the special entree. I love trout anyway and it was prepared and presented in a great manner and the taste of the trout and the vegetables did not disappoint. This restaurant still seems to be the hot place to go in uptown Saint John. We definitely plan to get back...and soon!
One of Saint John’s best. Always great food, great service and a vibrant atmosphere.
This new space at 97 Germain Street is wonderful. The food and service has always been great, but the new space is so open and alive. All the windows make you feel as though you are as vibrant and the city itself.
It was a wonderful spot and great food. Service was excellent and the wine list was super. The dirt desserts were great but there wasn't a really great selection of them.
Reservations were a snap with OpenTable, table for 4 on a Saturday Night. Started with a meatball appetizer which were delicious and piping hot. I skipped the primi option and went directly to the secondi... which was Cornish hen with baked risotto. The best risotto I have ever had. Finished with Crème Brule which had a prefect "crack" and tasted yummy as well!. My tablemates had the Steak special and both indicated it was the best they had ever had. Service was exceptional as well... our server explained the specials to us really well and followed up with us several times for replenishing drinks etc. I will be going back.. repeatedly!
This was a wonderful evening with a delicious meal. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and upon arrival, they greeted him with a glass of champagne. What a nice touch! They also gave us warm towels to wash our hands. This was by far one of the best meal, ambiance and evening! I can't wait to go back!
Our second visit to their new location. My wife wanted to go for our anniversary, so I gladly made reservations through Open Table which turned out to be a snap. My wife said if you didn’t know we were in Saint John, we could be in any big city in the world. The staff were very accommodating and friendly and the food was stupendous. We are very lucky to have such a fine dining experience here in the city.
It was very good food. I had people from Newfoundland with me and they loved the food! Appetizers were very good.
However when we arrived the greeter said we did not have a reservation for Oct 16th but did have one for Oct 23rd. I told her hogwash as I booked it and had it on my phone.
The other item was we felt we were being pushed out the door prematurely even though the restaurant did not close till 10pm. We left at 9:40 and rushed our wine because we thought the restaurant was closed - but the sign on the door said 10pm
FINE Just Fine We now have a great place dine. Welcome to Saint John
Food was fabulous, better than most restaurants in Vancouver, we were looking for a go to favourite place and found all our needs and wants at Italian by night. Great ambience, great looking crowd, service spot on, would definitely recommend...
The atmosphere is cozy and the food is always delicious! Again the beef short ribs were a big hit & Creme brule was delicious ! our partners ordered the steak special and it was cooked to perfection !! A+
IBN just gets better and better! Been many many times. Have noticed service is getting increasingly better (if that's even possible). The food is so authentic, fine, and beautiful on the plate. IMPOSSIBLE to have better Italian anywhere East of Montreal.
We were looking for a great meal in St. John (New Brunswick) and found it in Italian by Night. Outstanding cuisine. A very bus place -- albeit a bit loud -- but the long drive paid off. Highly recommended.
It's not my first time and won't be my last. I am never disappointed with IBN. There is so much attention to detail. We were privileged to have Hannah as our server who made great recommendations when a few of us we're undecided on our choices. The staff are smiling and keeping a watchful eye on their guests to ensure they are having a great experience. I have and will continue to recommend IBN to others.
First time we were here and we will be back. Great tasting food, good atmosphere and excellent service. Not sure if it was just had good timing on our part but we received our food quickly too!
Italian by night never disappoints , always an enjoyable experience.
We have been going to Italian by Night for our anniversary dinner every year since IBN opened and this was our first time in the new space. Wow. What a beautiful and warm spot to have dinner and the food was incredible as always. Love the ambiance and Liz made us feel very welcome.
