It’s for the atmosphere that I attend this restaurant.
The food was excellent - two of our party ordered steaks which arrived exactly as ordered, and the other ordered the duck - and raved about it. We were served by Georgia and she was excellent - making great suggestions and being attentive without hovering. Overall an excellent evening.
Lovely brunch. Food was delicious, waiter was very friendly.
Delicious food excellent service - great birthday lunch
Had lunch with my two sisters. Food was great, service was terrific.
This was my second time there and the experience could not have been more enjoyable!
Service was lovely as usual. Enjoyable :)
The reviews were true. This place truly is over-seasoned and a bit unreasonable in small portion sizes. I am all for small french portion fare - however, then the expectation needs to be set that your meal needs to be 5 courses.
We had two apps & an entree and left starving.
But the staff were lovely and the ambience was lovely and it is a very nice spot and the food was tasty, despite being too salty
I've been to Sassafraz many times for dinner and lunch, and for special events. The service and quality of food and wine is always excellent. It's a "to-be-seen" location without pretension. Love it.
Steak was medium well when ordered rare.
always a great place - service has gotten much better since I last visited. I will be returning
Thoroughly enjoyed dinner
Excellent food, gracious and comfortable décor … Service was a little overly casual. Timing of meal was both rushed and slow.
We will certainly return.
Great venue and great food. Wonderful service. I love it there!
We enjoyed our lunch. The wait staff were attentive and the atmosphere is wonderful.
Nice outdoor seating and good people watching. Food was very good and overall experience was nice on a hot humid day.
Great place! Very accomodating. Outstanding food presentations.
This is one of the regular places to dine for me and my wife; the food is very good and the service is excellent.
The menu is varied and easily satisfied guest with varied tastes, The service lead by Georgia was excellent.
Excellent taste, enjoyed very much
Server was Excellent. German woman from Stuttgart. ( can’t remember her name)
Comfortable, quiet upscale environment. Very safe choice both food and environment-wise. Food is like good quality banquet food. Would probably be a good choice for a business lunch.
Food was terrible. Salad was warm and soggy and EXPENSIVE
Samosas were cold
I don't understand how they can stay in business.
I wouldn't go there again
Sassafraz always delivers. It is always predictably good.
My only comment is that the wait staff could do with a little more training on how they present the food, a lightly gentler more elegant demenour would be appreciated.
This restaurant fits the bill, whether you want casual dining or an up-scale date night.
Excellent service. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and full of good humour. Food was promptly served and so fresh and tasty. We were very happy that the seating allowed for private conversation.
We had the duck and Cornish hen, both were great! Very nice atmosphere and service.
Unfortunately took forever to get the bill (15+ minutes), otherwise the food and ambience was great.
This is a place my boys and I love to go when we feel like having a special brunch. Imthe good, ambiance and location give it that extra special feel.
I chose Sassafraz for a special occasion dinner with my best friend who was visiting from out of town. I have had good experiences here in the past and the location was perfect to show her a lovely area of the city and a beautiful restaurant. While the food was delicious, I cannot stress enough how deeply disappointed we were with the level of service we received. We had an 8:00 reservation, for which we arrived on time. We were greeted promptly by our server and provided waters, but then watched as our server ignored our table for the next 20-25 minutes while serving people that came after us, cleared empty tables and touched base with every other table in his section aside from us. When we finally flagged him down to order drinks and our dinner, it took another 15-20 minutes to even receive a glass of wine and one cocktail. It was 840 when we finally received our drinks. The food was delicious, but again, we had to get our servers attention to get drink refills. When it came to ordering dessert, my friend ordered a glass of prosecco while I ordered a dessert and my food came far before her drink arrived. At this point I should note it was after 10:00pm and the restaurant was virtually empty and the bar was not busy. While the food and ambiance of Sassafraz make for an enjoyable experience, the service left us with a terrible taste in our mouths and made for a disappointing evening.
Were very good a accommodating my celiac condition and allowing us to share meals.
The new décor is lovely. The menu (lunch) was fun and very tasty. Our service was exceptional. Sassafraz has be re-invented, again. It gets better every time.
Our service was amazing. Food and drinks were beautifully presented and delicious. Thank you! I’ll be back. :)
It took a while to be greeted by the front staff. The service was good but a bit awkward. During the meal I was called by the restaurant to see if we were coming for our reservation. Food was good, if not a bit under seasoned. Overall a nice night out with a few miscues.
I made a note on reservation that the dinner is for my father-in-law’s birthday, and requested a table we’d like to be seated. When we arrived there, yes, we were directed to the table we wanted. As there was no mention of the birthday in the beginning from our server, i thought maybe they forgot. When dessert dish came out, there was a lighted candle with ‘Happy Birthday’ writing on our birthday man’s plate. It was definitely surprising and exceptional service. :)
Our family made good comments on beef tartare, King Cole duck breast and tenderloin.
Sassafraz always exceeds our expectations. Warmly welcomed upon arrival, seated at a great table and engaging conversation with the service team. We dined for Summerlicious - lots of selection, the portions were well-sized (great value!) and delicious. Will be back again soon!
Summerlicious at Sassafraz was excellent value for those of us who value quality over quantity.
waitress never came back....... she forgot about us like we never excisted in first place.....
Poor service - waited very long to have our order taken (other tables that came after us had their orders in before us), the bill took very long to get to our table and our bill came and there were erroneous items on it
