    We had a party of eight and had a round table near the indoor waterfall. A great table for a large party as we could all face each other and enjoy the conversations. Food was tremendous. Great shareables. The steaks were great. But the lamb shank was the best, particularly if you like a bit of jalapeño. Service was quick and friendly. The staff are all very professional.

    Went to eat here on my wedding day with some friends. Impeccable service, the server was pretty funny and took good care of us. Food was stellar, had the best coq au vin and the whole table was quite pleased with all the food.

    Always a good time at Sassafraz, everything was delicious. I find some portions a little small, especially the shareable Mac and cheese. I had the bass, and it was so good, but I was also a little hungry still, after. The cocktails are commendable, ambience just right, prices really reasonable and the seats are really comfy. Can’t wait to go back!

    First time back in a couple years and it was terrific. I’d give it 5 stars across the board, but we had to be in the cafe, which isn’t quite the ambiance of the dining room. The restaurant did let us know in advance, so no issue. Food and service were really top notch and it is a surprisingly good value for the location and all that is offered.
