Why we love it

This oasis-like restaurant in a two-level Victorian is all about undistracted dining, hinted by the tabletop cubbies for stowing your phones. Power down so you can give your undivided attention to executive chef Lia Silva’s avant-garde and exquisite global small plates like salmon roe latkes with maple kombu, and tuna tartare with black truffle and potato chips.

    My third time at SARA, and it’s always an absolute treat. Had the tasting menu for 3, which is an experience that shouldn’t be missed. Pricing is very reasonable given average Toronto dining pricing, particularly for the quality and diversity on SARA’s menu. Pro tip: check out the bathrooms ;)

    Wow, such delicious food and terrific service! The ambience is great too, very TO, elevated but fun and casual. Stand outs were a crisp, fresh salad, fried chicken (perfectly done, meat was tender and no trace of greasiness) and perfectly spiced blackened fish - the accompanying tostones were good but could have used a bit more seasoning/salt. The only part of the meal which missed the mark was the chocolate tart - it wasn’t really a chocolate tart, very light on chocolate flavor, the crisp was not tasty at all, and the banana puree was similar to jarred baby food. Overall a wonderful dining experience, would definitely go back, and that to me is the best sign of a restaurant’s worth; in TO, with so many great restaurants to choose from, if I want to return, it means it’s gotta be special. And a big huge thank you to Glen, he is an awesome server, friendly, helpful and kind.

    Came here for a bachelorette. I've been here once before on a date and was blown away by the food and drinks. This time it was still very good, but not quite as good as last time. The service was great and we really enjoyed ourselves. The tasting menu is a great value. You get sooo much food - definitely come hungry. The reubens were a favourite. Will continue to recommend this spot to friends!

    First time at Sara. We ordered most of the small and medium plates and they were all DELICIOUS! Will definitely go back. So often we feel disappointed with the cost and quality when dinning out but our experience at Sara was excellent.

    A first time visit and definitely won’t be my last! great warm reception from Jaila the host, followed by welcoming smiles and greta service from the staff and manager Benji. Food was tasty and well priced, wine was delicious and vibe was just right for a dinner with friends or a date night. I will definitely come see it again.

    Our first time here and the food was amazing but took forever for the dishes to come out. Very innovative and delicious. Unfortunately, their wine selection is extremely limited and the ones by the glass, oof. The service was also very spotty. Our server tried her best to make up for the shortcomings but I think it was really too much for a restaurant supposedly rated this high to have such spotty service like that. Hopefully, they can improve but the room was packed so I don’t think people cared much. I for one would not come back. There are so many other options.

    The food was good. Not great. And the martini was not among the better ones I’ve had, which was disappointing considering how they were promoted as being something special. Happy to have tried Sara, but wouldn’t go back or recommend.
