Emil was an excellent, professional and personable waiter as were the three other servers who brought things to our table or removed plates. The restaurant was not crowded so we were nowhere near anyone else. The food was carefully and interestingly-prepared. We were greeted and welcomed at the door and thanked as we left. Given that many restaurants are having difficulty finding appropriate help we were very pleased with the quality of everything at our lunch. It was a treat to be able to have a conversation without shouting or having each other have to repeat. I would definitely recommend Sassafraz for its indoor ambience. We didn’t want to sit outside breathing in the fumes of the endless traffic on Cumberland. The garden room at the rear of the restaurant would be our choice the next time.

Delicious food, well presented. Not cheap but hard to complain with the quality being high, and it was a bit of a special occasion. Would go there again very willingly

They are very kind and helpful with dietary restrictions which makes us and guests feel comfortable. This restaurant is a go-to for us because it’s priced accurately, it’s beautiful, they have Toronto’s best dessert: flourless chocolate cake, and the food is very good with lots of variety on the menu, so everyone is happy.

The waiters seem insufficiently trained, some dishes are quite strange ( great piece of hot salmon on tope of cold, unappealing pasta, frozen solid icecream) poor service timing You must be going through difficult times but some improvement must be made before we return. Thanks for inviting our feedback.

The dinner menu has excellent options; the service is outstanding; and the general ambience is very nice. The noise level is high, but there is an energy in the diningroom as a result. For our recent dining experience, we had Oysters, the beef tenderloin (excellent), lamb ragu, the hamburger and the Atlantic Salmon. The wine menu is also fairly extensive and competitively priced.

Yet, the two other dishes (halibut and wild boar) were not good. The halibut was overdone and so was the wild boar. However, the ambience and service were good. The young lady who served our table was indeed excellent. I asked to speak with the manager to give our compliments. The manager was kind enough to promise us something extra on our next visit after hearing that we were not too happy with the food.

I ordered a boar chop, kale salad , and oysters. My boar was way over cooked; the kale salad lacked flavour and the oysters were quite small (could be just the style)

I got upset when I got up to go to the bathroom I had my wine with me and decided to try and drink it before I left & one of the waiters came at me very rudely and said where are you going with your drink like ?? Excuse me did you think I was going to steal the glass ? Unbelievable I felt disrespected. Anyways I explained I was just trying to finish it before I left & chugged it and went up to him & gave him the glass sorry but you guys definitely won’t see me back!!

Despite the holiday, it was business lunch. We both had the onion soup, oysters, and salmon followed by coffee. I had cheese cake for dessert. All were excellent and complimented one another nicely. Stayed with cocktails rather than wine. The mojito was very good. Service was excellent. Compliments to Bettina who remembered me from a previous visit even though it was pre-lockdown.
