Great for dinner. Would be nice if the tables were a bit larger. We ordered wine and oysters to start, they also brought over some bread and the table was already packed. Other than that, it was great.

Everything was great except for the host telling us we only get the table for 1.5 hrs and then our server taking 15min to come say hi. Had to actually get the hostesses to get us our server to tell them we’d like to order and not wait for our other 2 people to arrive.

Expected prices for Yorkville. The food is good, the service was good, they've extended their patio onto the street east of the actual restaurant which is great.

Been here before and the food was ok.
The only reason I came back is because they are dog friendly and my friend has a dog. They brought fresh water for the little one which was very nice.

Service was slow but I understand since COVID but the food was not worth the money. We got the cured meat board and it had 4 slices of prosciutto 4 slices of sausage and another 4 slices of another type of prosciutto which were a bit dry. The burger I got was not seasoned and bland. However, the Parmesan truffle fries are always to die for.

Great food, but ran out of certain options by the time my reservation came (we had an 8 pm reservation). I think it is because everyone is just getting back into dining post-pandemic. Great experience!

Although it was nice to be able to return for brunch after the long lockdown, the food let us down. Not the excellent quality we were used to at Sassafraz. We hope it will get there for our next dining experience. We must add that the service was really great.

Our waiter was amazing! He really went above and beyond with his service. I had eggs Benedict and my husband had the burger. We also shared the oysters which were amazing. Overall a great experience after being in lockdown for over 2 months. Can’t wait to visit again.

Food was quick and delicious! Only downside was that Cumberland Ave is very bustling so the noise level can be quite high from all the cars.
