We went on a Thursday evening. The restaurant wasn't busy and we can't understand why! This place should be packed. The food was delish. We were served an Amuze bouche of potato leek soup and a home made pizza bread, wonderful. Hubby opted for two appetizers: the turkey poutine and sliders, it was flavorful and hot. I had the duck,...

In Saint John, this is one of a handful of top-tier restaurants. It has always delivered the best in terms of flavours and presentation. Highly recommended!

Bright open design place, perfect for taking and enjoying people's company. Food was very good, amuse bouche was nice and the apps were so great. Mains are light and complex.

If you enjoy fine dining, Decimal 81 located at 81 Princess Street, Saint John, NB is the place to go! We recently dined there for Chop Chop evening Dinner. We enjoyed great food beautifully plated in a relaxing atmosphere with candlelight and enjoyable music at a volume that didn't interfere with conversation around our table.

The chop chop meal we had last night was delicious. We started with the scallops, and I had the cod for my main. Others at the table had the chicken and the port and reported that everything was very tasty. All plates were practically licked clean. The desserts were also delicious. The portions were perfect and we left completely satisfied.... More

Attended Decimal 81 with a group of 8 for Chop Chop lunch. The service was great and we ordered as soon as we got there. Luckily we made a reservation, as it was busy and several people had to be turned away at the door. Our waiter was kind and told us about which dish had been popular so far... More

I would like to explain how our reservations works when we are extremely busy as we have been during Chop Chop. When making reservations we allow about 2 hours per reservations if the table needs to be flipped for other guest. However sometimes it can take a bit longer than 2 hours.

We went to Decimel 81 for their Chop Chop lunch and were very disappointed with the slow service (2 hours) and mediocre food. No excuse, I say, for there were only two entrees and two desserts on the menu. I know they had a full house, but they should have been prepared. It has been awhile since we've been there... More

My boyfriend and I decided to try Decimal 81 for our post-Valentine's Day dinner and it was nothing short of awesome. The kitchen gave us a complimentary cauliflower purée that we can't get enough of. We had the 3 for 33 deal and I got a poutine + lamb shanks + date pudding. Everything was just absolutely fantastic & divine.... More
