Had a business lunch here and was impressed with the service and food. You can tell that they use fairly high quality ingredients. The only downside is that it is a bit pricey for lunch but the food and location were fairly top notch.

Pressed for time so we ordered limited items. Had the rucola salad ($13) - my fave - arugula, ricotta salata, strawberries, toasted hazelnuts. Others had the beef carpaccio and the seafood stuffed squid pasta. I ordered the bombolini for dessert - ricotta doughnuts with orange infused caramel. This was LOVE at first bite. The doughnuts were piping hot - and... More

My husband and I were very disappointed in our experience last night. We were celebrating our anniversary and decided to try this place. Very long wait at the bar. Bartender has limited experience.  Sent my drink back and it was still awful. We were introduced to a "sommelier" by the waiter. We asked him about his training. Turns out he... More

We were treated to dinner at Due Mari very recently by a couple of friends, and I must say the whole experience was simply fabulous and worth repeating. First of all, service by our main waiter (Taylor) was top of the line. He was super attentive, courteous and focused on every detail to please our needs. The food was outstanding!... More

Easy to see why it was busy. Four of us all agreed it was superb. I had oysters and pasta, others had steaks etc. Wine was excellent, ambiance great, service faultless and friendly. And all at a reasonable price. Highly recommended.

This restaurant is a favourite for my business colleagues and me. The service is excellent and the flavours are fantastic. The salads are fresh, and the salmon I ordered was perfectly done, namely not over cooked. They can accommodate large business meetings.

Great bar upon entering. Restaurant is very clean and service is good. A few instances where table set up for large groups was not optimal (or many people shoved in around one round table). Every dish was good... and we've ordered many appetizers and dishes for business meetings. Once or twice got a wobbly table which is unfortunate given that... More

FINE DINING IN NEW BRUNSWICK? You betcha. DUE MARI treated me to an elegant evening in sun-dappled Tuscany, even though there was a blizzard outside. An ample & appealing bar greets you at the DUE MARI entryway, with friendly clientèle, stylish small-plates & stained-glass-hued cocktails at a sweeping circular bar---one which certainly invites conversation to unwind at the end of...

This restaurant was a good surprise. Decoration is beautiful and charming. The food is also very good and was a good surprise as well, as I was not sure what to expect. Personnel was very kind as well. I would definitely come back again.
