Red Curry Seafood was my main - excellent flavours. Not too hot, good size portion. Good size crowd for a Tuesday nite including a very large private work? Party and still our service was excellent. Kyle was our waiter he defiantly warrants a shout out, fantastic server. The food presentation was as good as the food tasted - especially the... More

We absolutely loved this dish. We both ordered it. The soup of the day was chicken vegetable and it was to die for. I shared my wife's and wish I had ordered my own. Atmosphere was nice, not romantic or fancy but nice. Main dish was $31 and it had lots of seafood. Very generous portions. Absolutely delicious! We will... More

I've been with a group of friends. We didn't do any reservation but we were able to find a table so easily. The waiter was very lovely and helpful. The food is amazing. Love it!

This place is exactly what most restaurants strive to be. Everything about the dining experience was great! The food did not completely blow me out of the water as one of the BEST dishes ever, but it still absolutely excellent. The service was speedy, and top notch. Our server noticed simply by one of my friend's facial expression that she... More

We found this place thru google and it was rated 5 stars and It sure is. Love the ambiance, the view on the harbor and the meals were very tasty. I was really surprised by the price of those meals. It was really affordable. I recommend this place to everyone.

This restaurant is consistently ranked highly in St. John and deservedly so because of its emphasis on presentation, excellent cooking to your taste, and good service.

Have been here a few times so far and it continues to impress. Delicious, well presented food provided with excellent service. Melt in your mouth rolls, fantastic seafood mains and never pass up their desserts here, especially anything chocolate

I'm not really one for fine dining but East Coast Bistro is an exception. I always try to visit while I'm in town, mostly because my colleagues really love it and I've never had a disappointing meal. I wasn't particularly hungry so I stuck to the soup (cheese and cauliflower) and the ECB salad, both of which were very tasty... More

Just passing through Saint John, so I can't say if it's one of the best in the city, but the food and service were certainly great on the Friday evening we visited. All 5 of us were delighted in our entrees, sides and desserts. The cost was very reasonable. If I was in the area, this would certainly be a... More
