Excellent time at Sassafraz on Sunday night. Very good service - knew when to leave us alone, but also when we needed service. Food was terrific. Cant wait to go back.
Great food and excellent service. Had a very memorable evening so much that we stayed back in the lounge for some after-dinner drinks. Keep up the good work!
My husband and I went for his birthday. The atmosphere was perfect, the service was okay. We waited about 15 minutes to get asked what we wanted to drink or eat (other than water). We found our server wasn’t available, nor did we know her name. However, it was probably because not enough people were working and it was busy. I’ve been vegetarian for 8 years however began eating meat while feeding my baby and I asked for medium steak and got rare ($37 steak) which is too much for me at the moment. I had to give it to my husband to eat. Didn’t want it reheated. Just expected the steak cooked correctly or at least close to. Everything else did taste amazing and will probably be back again.
Chose Sassafraz for a team Christmas lunch. Excellent food and service. Very pleased.
Our server was personable and informed. She helped us to make our food choices. The fish tacos featured ahi tuna and were delicious. Although there were attentive staff around no one ever touched a plate or fork until everyone at the table was finished each course. Much appreciated.
The room was elegant and the service never rushed even though it's a busy time of year. Five stars.
Always have a great time when I come here. They have a fantastic brunch and their french onion soup is one of my favourites in the city! The space is absolutely beautiful and perfect for special occasions.
My mom and I went on a much needed girls weekend and chose Sassafraz for dinner. We were not disappointed! The food and drink were amazing and the ambience was nothing but inviting. We will be back!
We were not disappointed. A very busy Saturday afternoon brunch in a bustling trendy place for brunch. We arrived before our reservation but we were promtly seated. We were able to talk without the interruption from surrounding noise, which was wonderful. The service was prompt but unhurried. Food was very good, we enjoyed everything.
We felt the menu was restricted for main courses. There was definitely more variety on the appetizer side. Lamb ragout although delicious would have benefitted from an actual bite or two of meat and the portion could have been a bit more generous. The boar chop was delicious but arrived on a unheard plate.
Service was excellent and we appreciated the coat check.
I wish I remembered our servers name because he was pretty amazing! We never felt rushed or interrupted.
He was available every time we needed him like as if he had a 6th sense and discreet when we didn’t .
As always a great evening at Sassafraz!
We had a great time at sassafraz on Friday November 22nd 2019
Food was excellent

Atmosphere was great a little loud yet acceptable
Overall a great restaurant with delicious food and great wine
Very happy over-all. Great service, great food & ambience.
Great restaurant in Yorkville. Not pretentious. Great food - the halibut was perfectly cooked. Extensive wine list including high end wines by the glass. Service was very good. Engaging and helpful wait staff. Will be back.
Great food and perfect ambiance!
The best French onion soup ever!!
I love the ambiance! Food was great! Will go back!
Great location. Friendly staff. Delicious food. I definitely will be returning.
This is the second year I have held my birthday lunch at Sassafraz.
I like to book the round table in the garden. There were nine ladies this year so was unable to book the
round table. One lady dropped our at the last minute, the restaurant was very accommodating, they reset the
round table for eight. I got my favorite table and i was surrounded by my best pals.
Everyone enjoys the food and the service...all very good.
Delicious French onion soup. Service was top notch
We have been to Sassafraz many times for lunch and dinner, this time with visiting friends for Sunday brunch. It never misses. Great ambience, service and food. A light, bright décor just adds to it all. I was in the mood for carbs and started with their scones (tasty) followed by French toast (a great big helping). I said I would leave some on the plate (didn't happen). You can always be pure on Monday. When you have guests you want everything to be right. At Sassafraz it always is.
We had a wonderful meal at Sassafraz on Saturday night. There was a wedding going on above the main restaurant which added some noise to our ambiance, but overall it was quite well managed. The food was outstanding (charcuterie board and burgers) and the drinks were delicious and powerful!! The spicy margarita is a must try.
Das Sassafraz ist immer sehr schön. Wenngleich die Preise extrem gehoben sind. Der Service ist sehr zuvorkommend und das Essen sehr gut. Die Zwiebelsuppe ein Gedicht.
Wir waren mit Freunden und von der Reservierung über den Service etc war alles wunderbar.
Abzug eines Sterns, weil es wirklich sehr sehr teuer ist.
Amazing food and the service was excellent. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone who enjoys dining out.
My luncheon companion and I were delighted with the menu, especially since I am a vegetarian. The dish we both ordered was tasty, subtle and filling. The wine was good and reasonably priced for a Toronto Yorkville restaurant. The dining room was bright with natural light. The upholstered chairs cut down noise which was, at a minimum anyway. The servers were pleasant and attentive.
This was our second visit in seven weeks. We came back because our first experience was so positive. And we’ll be there again soon. Your vegetarian options are out of this world, as are your desserts. Can hardly wait until next time.
As always ...predictably outstanding
I was attending a personal/business meeting and we needed a quiet place where we were not rushed. Sassafras was just perfect. The service was great and the meal just hit the spot. Thank you for everything. I will be back!
Our waitress Bettina was fabulous. Made several excellent recommendations and was a joy to speak with.
Evelyn was a great waitress. Very friendly, conversational, provided great recommendations and made my sisters Birthday dinner a success. Not only did she provide a dessert for her bday but provided a great recommendation on a bday drink and joined in on singing happy birthday!! Thank you Evelyn for the great service!!!
The food was great. However, my waiter gave me creepy looks. That did made my dining experience quite unpleasant. Also, I didn't feel very welcomed. It was my wife's birthday.
The food was very good and the service very attentive. The price point, particularly given the restaurant’s location, was excellent. It had a lovely ambience and was very well appointed. When I travel to this area again, I would definitely look to return!
The menu had changed slightly since the last time I dined here, which is a good thing. (The bartender noted that the staff has input into the new winter line-up of cocktails). The oysters were excellent, the agnolotti and tomato salad (with shrimp) also excellent. I'm a big fan of Niagara wines and the Tawse reisling did not disappoint. My favourite part is the sorbet. We tried peach and passion fruit, both bursting with flavour. Beautiful restaurant with attentive service and ambiance.
Overall very good but service by our server was strange. Described a dish as medium spicy hot but when it was delivered had no heat at all. He told us another dish contained pesto although the menu made no such mention. Or maybe needs better training
foods are bad
service is also bad
Dinner didn’t disappoint. We had a diet restriction and the menu still had enough choices to keep us all happy, and even share!
Great wine selection too.
I had an absolutely incredible experience here.
Everything was perfect for my birthday.
I will be back
The food was delicious and perfectly paired with the wine our server selected. We had an amazing dinner at Sassafraz!
One of my favourite places for a leisurely lunch with friends. Excellent service and great food. Love the seared tuna salad with avocado and pomegranate seeds!
