My husband and I decided to have a lunch date yesterday. I have been wanting to take him to this Bistro since I visited in March with girlfriends. We were greeted immediately and taken to our table. I love their infused water they bring to your table. I had The gnocchi with crisp spinach on the top and my hubby... More

Our first time dining at this restaurant and we were simply blown away by the food and the service. We started with the ECB board and were not disappointed by the interesting flavour choices. Just enough food to prime your palette for the main course. We both had the haddock special and it was the best-cooked fish we've ever experienced.... More

ECB is our "go to place" in Saint John. Always enjoyable, always consistent. The service is attentive without hovering. Although the design is open and very "bistro" like you never feel as though you are on top of other diners - there is a sense of intimacy at each table. The dishes are very artfully presented. Try the mushroom/lentil croquettes... More

The salads are fantastic especially since you can add a protein and save room for the desert. The Lemon Tart is perfection. The service people are warm and professionaly friendly. The ambiance is comfortable and sophisticated. I would never go to this city and miss this place. Enjoy!

Had the leg of lamb and it was very bland. Asked for it medium and got medium rare. No flavor to it at all. Molasses and beer salmon was decent, but for the price this is not the flavor and quality you would expect. Two entrees, two glasses of wine and one beer with a 15% tip was $104.00. I... More

My wife and I were given a gift card to East Coast Bistro. This was our first visit but won't be our last. We really enjoyed our lunch experience. The downtown location on Prince William is easy to access although parking on the street can sometimes be a challenge. We parked at the parking garage and it was an easy... More

A group of my friends and I met at the East Coast Bistro last Tuesday. Wow great atmosphere and real tasty food! We sat and chatted and enjoyed a great spot for conversation. We all enjoyed our food and the desserts that were ordered looked really yummy. One lady who was sitting near us said the sticky toffee pudding was... More
