I was reading the reviews about this place which mostly 5 stars and few of them not!!
The people comment that not really happy such as they have no vegetarians option, squished tables beside each other or expensive food and wine....!
I go dining often especially north of Toronto and Sarpa is one of my favorite restaurant. The moment you walked in to the restaurant they welcome you with big smile to the end everyone say bye to you. EXCELLENT service and great high quality food and I’m pretty sure if you ask them that you are vegetarian, vegan or gluten free.... they do their best to help you out with menu items or make a custom dish for you even on the weekends which is very busy. Portions are very decent and if you go there on the weekend between 7-7:30 you should not expect to see quite place.
Bottom line is if you looking for quantity vs FINE DINING EXPERIENCE with great quality food you should go to “all you can eat” restaurant or make your own dish at home, buy your wine from lcbo and enjoy your meal in your own private dining room at home.
I just wanted to congrats to the owners of the place and wish the best for all.keep up the good work.

We have made Sarpa one of our favourites prior to this experience.

The food preparation had changed without any notification. We had ordered the fish which arrived with mussels which was not appreciated not told about.

We were told that the chef changes this on his own without telling anyone

The waiter took no responsibility for the orders and really did not seem to care if we were satisfied

We left a tip only because the support staff was excellent

When we looked at the desert menu and ask about a biscotti option. We were told none were available

This could very well be the last time we attend at sarpa

In order of mussels was totally unsatisfactory as approximately 1/2 of them had not opened. But they did deduct the price of them. My wife’s apple cake was terrible. Our friend had shrimp that were very overspiced. We were not offered coffee at the end of the meal. I understand that there are new owners here, but if they continue this way it will not work out well.

My boyfriend and I went here for the first time for Valentine's day and it was lovely. At first I was a bit nervous because our waitress took about 10 -15 mins to come to our tables to introduce herself and offer us water. However, once she came around she was excellent. She came around frequently asked us if we were okay, the selection of food was limited that day but it was good a selection, and the food was cooked to perfection! It is one of the best restaurants in Richmond Hill and will definitely go again.

You know what this place is a little gem. The service is amazing, the ambiance is perfect. Classy enough to wear a jacket and casual enough to wear jeans. The food was excellent. I gave it 4 stars because my girlfriend thought her chicken was a little under cooked. Overall a great experience.

Fantastic service, great Martini's and wonderful ambiance!
Only drawback is the price- $60 for Rack of Lamb (no notable sides included basically just garnishes) is overpriced for Richmond Hill especially when compared to well known 4 & 5 star establishments downtown.

5:30 pm reservation, Saturday evening. Our server was good overall, however our food was disappointingly bland and served cold. My husband’s short ribs were dry, tasteless and cold and my lamb shank the same. We did not send back but should have. We were there on New Year’s as well and the meal was excellent at that time. Not sure what happened on Saturday. The restaurant was mostly empty, just one other group. However the other server must have known them, and he was extremely loud in conversation with them for an extended period of time, making our experience strangely uncomfortable, given the lack of other people there. Not sure we will be back soon given the cold and bland meal.

This was not my first visit to Sarpa in Oakridges. The food has never disappointed. The food was fresh and flavorful. I ordered the chicken dish and my friend had the veal which was served with spaghetti. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The wine list is reasonable and complements the food menu. The wait-staff was friendly and courteous. I will definitely go back to Sarpa restaurant again soon.

Dined with friends for dinner. Lovely restaurant. Attentive staff. I had the beef shortrib. But It was more like a 3 inch beef brisket cube ... ..it was well-prepared.. tender, savoury and excellent. But it came with Cauliflower mash.. which was about a table spoon worth. I felt my meal was not balance and felt something was missing. I will know next time to order an extra side. Others at the table had pasta, which they found very good.

Food and service was excellent. Everyone in our party of six raved about the Caesar salad, arugula salad was simple but tasty, featured branzino was a hit, perfect arrancini! Only deducted a star for ambiance because it was rather chilly inside on a cold night.
