The place does not look like much from the outside; but who cares, food is great and staff is friendly! That's really all you need.

Last summer we visited Saint John (I've been meaning to write this review since then!) and enjoyed an exceptional meal at East Coast Bistro. It wasn't just well prepared and fresh food, it was memorable. We spoke with Kimberly Steele the co-chef and co-owner who was making pasta in the open kitchen as we passed after our meal to thank...

Had a business lunch at East Coast Bistro on Tuesday. The food was really good and the service was great. I had a ham sandwich (ham was brined and baked in house) with roasted tomato, lettuce, etc. It was huge. I ended up taking the top roll off and ate it like an open faced sandwich. It was a bit...

We tried the Donair burger the Mac option and the veggie option. All were great but my favorite was the veggie burger. Picked up a dessert burger as well very tasty. The service came quickly and friendly. Still my favorite place to go, they just keep doing things so well.

the whole experience was enjoyable for me and my friend - since it was a Monday, we had no problems finding close metered parking spots. Since I was the first one there I enjoyed a glass of wine of my choosing. The menu was varied so we could have as little or as much as we wanted - depending on... More

Wow. What a place. Easy to see why it's number 1 on trip advisor. Delicious fresh locally inspired dishes served with flair and imagination. Seafood red curry particularly Devine. The dessert burger on a doughnut with chocolate patty, where chocolate cheese and raspberry coulis for ketchup is inspired. Great value too

ECB is the best burger to kick off burger week... or any week really! Hope to get back in this week to try the Donair burger and the dessert burger. Kim, Tim and all their staff are always quick efficient and very knowledgeable about the menu. Every visit to the bistro is better than the time before... which always seems... More

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
