The food was excellent. It is quite noisy and too dark for me. Otherwise I enjoy my evening.

I've eaten here twice now, once for lunch and once for dinner. Both times, the food was spectacular. Every course was a delight, with fresh ingredients, perfectly prepared fish and steak, and complex and surprising flavors. The service was excellent. A lovely experience from start to finish. I highly recommend Sash for a nice evening out or a special event.

Overall, the food was quite good. We had to send a very undercooked steak back. They cooked a new steak, which was served equally undercooked. All the other dishes were quite good. Service was excellent and our server was very knowledgeable about wine pairings.

We were hoping for a meaningful and memorable way to Celebrate the New Year. What better way than an intimate champagne and caviar dinner at the much anticipated re imagined North 44 midtown.

What was good:
*The Tomahawk Steak... mouth-watering!
* quality and shape of ther champagne glasses

What needs improvement:
*Slow service
*Blinis served with the caviar were raw in the middle ... for the price, one expects perfection
* frites were not crisp, not delicious
*bench seating was too stiff, too upright, too uncomfortable.
* caviar pricing for 10g was what we'r usually pay for 28g

An $800 tab (fair tip incl) for TWO, was eyewateringly high for our unremarkable meal.

Not returning anytime soon.

Sadly dining room was less than half full for New Year's Eve and yet service was off and no ambiance or upbeat attitude or lively music. Nothing wrong with the food but overall boring for special occasions.

The service was great and the food was excellent. We however found the lighting too dark and requested they add candles to our table. Next time we reserve we will ask for a table closer to the windows where we can get some of the outside lighting. We also found the pricing a bit to steep compared to some equivalent quality restaurants downtown.

Had higher expectations based on a recommendation from a friend. Had to choose an early seating based on limited availability and as soon as we were seated, the server made us feel like we were on a time limit and others would be needing our table soon. This was told to us when we were the only ones in the restaurant. Pretty much set the tone for the whole experience which ended up mediocre at best. A let down from what we had hoped for. Overpriced for this type of dining experience.

Great choices on the menu. The Dover sole couldn’t have been fresher or more delicious. The only disappointment was that they ran out of the mushroom soup special before I could order it! Overall a wonderful way to spend a Saturday night!!

What a great place to land for dinner on Friday night after a long week at work. The staff were friendly and attentive but never intrusive. The room is beautiful and tastefully done. Great lighting and soft tones makes for a very relaxing environment.
The food was fantastic! Loved our tuna tartare 3 ways. The lamb was perfect. My husband’s 2 favourite items on any menu were both available : Dover Sole and then a chocolate soufflé for dessert. Divine! Welcome to the neighbour hood Sash!

The service was sooooo painfully slow we sat for half an hour before being asked if we would like a drink.
In general the attention to detail lacked .
Food was great though once it arrived and presentation good .

The food was excellent - large portions though so even though you want to order everything pair down - just keep going back to try all the food! Service is always friendly and great. Can't say enough good thing about this place. My new favourite restaurant in Toronto!

This was our first visit to the relatively new restaurant but it certainly won’t be our last. The place is beautiful, the wait staff very professional and personable and the food divine. We even made New Year’s Eve reservations while we were there. Highly recommend this for a really great evening out.

The evening at the new Sash restaurant was really very nice. From the moment we arrived they were very welcoming and took care of all our needs beautifully. Sash dropped by the table a few times through the evening to make sure everything was fine. A very nice touch! Service was well paced - neither too slow nor too fast.
We look forward to our next visit.

It is a pleasure to find such a fine dining experience in midtown Toronto with such excellent and unusual cuisine. The tables were conducive to conversation, noise level was minimal and the staff were knowledgeable and friendly. Sash is a winner!

The food was good - but not exceptional. Our server was very professional. However, no need to ever go back. It was extremely expensive, and while I have no problem paying for truly outstanding and creative food, this simply wasn’t worth it.
