Great Sunmerlicious meal. Delicious!! And sitting outside on Cumberland people watching was a lot of fun.
Very slow service. Took almost an hour to get the main course. Restaurant was busy but by no means full. Food (when it came) was very nice though.
i have been there previously and was very satisfied with the food and drinks. the experience this time was horrible. Not sure if it had anything to do with Summerlicious however the drinks were horrible. sent back three times ( gin and tonic) ordered mint tea, received green tea. told the server only to receive the same green tea! drinks deducted from the bill. totally appreciated that gesture however the night was already a disappointment :(
Sassafraz never disappoints. We make a point of going when we visit Toronto now that we have moved to Windsor. We tried the Summer set meal for once in my dining experience I could find something from each course that I like. We had AMAZING cocktails to start these are obviously made with taste in mind the same as the food! I had the Duck pate which was probably the best I have ever tasted and wished I could take a big pot home! My husband had Halibut as a main and was overwhelmed with the way it had been prepared in fact he compared it to a sea bass that he once ate in Paris. My strip loin was perfectly cooked beautifully seared flavor. We will be longing for a meal such as this until we get to Toronto again unfortunately Windsor does not have many fine dining experiences for us as we would like.
One of my best summerlicious experiences
I highly recommend coming for summerlicious lunch
Warm cozy place that is good for Sunday brunch and afternoon tea. We enjoy it much!
I went there for my bachelorette party and it was a great experience. The service was great, they even helped my friend setup the party balloons. The food was great, we got the summerlicious menu items. For the desert, the flourless chocolate bar was the best dessert I have ever had, super delicious! The ambience and the interior of the restaurant was beautiful and romantic. Overall, my girlfriends and I enjoyed our dinner and had a great time.
Love the service
Love the ambience
Tried the strip-loin it was really good
Lovely restaurant with great food and ambiance. Service was very professional.
Great night, service and food were outstanding. Tables are far enough apart to still be intermate. Loved the e tire experience
I would recommend Sassafraz for its ambience and service, but not for the Summerlicious appetizer and main I had (Ceviche and steak) bceause they were bland.
I was not happy with the saffron chicken served as part of summerlicious. It tasted weird.
Our service and ambiance was great but the food could have been better. The appetizers need to be improved.
Food not cooked nor presented well. Wait staff is very impersonal. So many other places to go to in the area that provide better value.
Overall experience was good but the premise was really noisy that I could hardly hear my dinner companion. The peach non alcoholic cocktail was bland.
Our lunch reservation table was ready on time & they located us in a preferred area as requested. ambience by the waterfall is lovely. Staff are efficient , friendly & professional yet unobtrusive. No pressure to turnover the table for the next guest within 2hours or to order alcohol. Love the skylight-filled sunny atrium by the waterfall! Had The Summerlicious menu & the trout was pan-fried to perfection with extra crispy skin but tender meat. Marinated Thai short ribs were excellent altho wish there were more on our appetizer plate! Lol. Strawberry panacotta also very good . All for only $28. +tax+tip. It was a very enjoyable & relaxing luncheon! If only the drive back home at rush hour could’ve been less stressful we’d go more often!
The service was very good, food excellent, atmosphere good, a little noisy at first, then it quite done. Good overall would come again
We requested to be seated in the coolest area as the day was hot and humid. Loved sitting in the atrium next to the waterfall and living wall. This also turned out to be the quietest area as we noticed the other spaces were very noisy on our way out.
Service was excellent. Explained our time constraint and we were served in a timely manner.
My friend had the Caesar salad and I had the short ribs. The salad had a nice light dressing and the mango slaw that accompanied the ribs was very tasty.
I ordered the burger and fries, and like many other reviewers, was very pleased with this choice. The quality of the meat was excellent and the onion chutney delicious.
My friend enjoyed the roast chicken breast.
We both had the flourless chocolate cake with vanilla ice cream. Perfect blueberries in coulis were on the side. The combination was magical.
Hope to return soon.
Great food and service. Their summerlicious menu is excellent value!
Wish my group could eat outside, however there is a minimum limit
We have been coming for many years. Traditionally for our anniversary, but also for my birthday as it is one of my favourite restaurants. Always good food & great service!
Apparently, they were short handed and no one knew who our waiter was. So we sat for a half hour without service. Even the the entree was very late . Good was very good though.
Food was delicious, service was awesome, highly recommend Sassafraz!
This restaurant has in the past been one of our favourites. However, we were all hoarse trying to Two portions were highly salted (i.e., soup, noodles) - I guess salt was necessary for flavor? Not sure if we will return. The service was excellent.
Our party of four went to Sassafraz for Summerlicious. There was lots to choose from on the menu. I had the Caesar salad with crispy Romaine lettuce, thin shavings of Parmesan and anchovies. The entree was Salmon with soba noodles. The salmon was perfectly cooked and the serving of soba noodles just the right amount in a tasty Ponzu dressing. For dessert I chose the flourless chocolate cake served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. A perfect meal. My companions had the burgers, which they found very filling and the cheese tray for dessert. Our fourth diner had the Heirloom tomatoes with white beans, the chicken breast and the strawberry Panna Cotta. We each had a Fuzzy Peach drink. Outstanding value for the quality of the meal! Service was also very good. Definitely would recommend Sassafraz!
We had a wonderful summerlicious lunch here. The service was great, very attentive even though it was busy, the food was excellent, wine pairing suggestion was also on point. We sat inside at the back by the waterwall and it was gorgeous with the tall skylight ceilings. Americano coffee was way too bitter for me, but they got me something else, so really, I have zero to complain about. Will be back, have already recommended it twice.
The summerlicious was pretty forgettable (Agnolotti was cold and tasted like it came out of the freezer) but the service and ambiance was great. The dessert course was very good.
Excellent scenery and service! We had a great time!
Chose the prix fixed menu. Salad? Okay. Didn’t much like my pasta dish, but my friend’s hamburger looked good. Didn’t realize the peas would be mushed in a quite revolting sauce. The stuffed pasta was otherwise quite good.
Dessert (the panna cotta) was tasteless and didn’t wobble like it should. Server was good.
I ordered the pork chop on the Summerlicious menu and the meat was tough. I am disappointed in this and want to know how Sassafraz can rectify this negative customer experience for me.
Went to Sassafraz for the first time for Summerlicious lunch. The ambiance is lovely for lunch, with sun streaming in the covered garden section with waterfall. The food and service could not be faulted ... everything was delicious. At Sunmerlicious prices, this is a real bargain.
Brilliant, as always. This time, Summerlicious with some US colleagues and impressed they were. Top service, fantastic plates. Reliable and steady kitchen, one of our favourites.
We went for the summerlicious menu which was delicious. We sat near the waterfall under the sun roof - it was beautiful! All the food was delicious and was served in a timely spaced manner. We definitely left the restaurant feeling full. The hostess, the waiter, the bus boy - everyone was so friendly and helpful throughout our time at the restaurant.
We had a wonderful dinner at Sassafraz with their summerlicious menu. Everything was delicious and nicely presented. Our waitress Laurel was attentive an very professional. The restaurant has a very nice regular menu as well, and we enjoyed several lovely dinner there. We highly recommend!
We enjoyed our evening. The waitress we had was one of the best we have ever had! She made the meal fun and enjoyable. It was summerlicious which sometimes means get in and out as quickly as possible. We did not feel rushed and the restaurant had more choices than most for this type of meal.
Highly recommended- great food, great service, great atmosphere!
The decor and service was great. The restaurant was accommodating with our toddlers. Food was underwhelming.
Food was excellent - great choices and special wine was good!
My partner and I enjoyed a meal at this establishment a couple of nights ago. The ricotta agnolotti with lemon, asparagus and peas was outstanding as were the other samplings we enjoyed. The dessert of strawberry panna cotta was a bit bland, but to be fair, panna cotta tends to be a bit bland at the best of times. I would certainly go back especially if spending time in the Yorkville area.
Amazing as always
Great food great service lovely ambiance
