We had a great time. Our server Austin was very attentive and efficient. He provided us with great recommendations.
The food was delicios.
Great brunch experience with my partner and his parents. The mac and cheese was wonderful, steak was delicious. The service was impeccable, with our server being quite attentive while not disturbing our meal at the same time.
Overall was a very enjoyable experience; will definitely come back.
Very nice atmosphere, friendly staff and great food!
Amazing server, great food!
A great experience Food, staff and ambience was exceptional
Honestly, I was suprised with the whole experience. I will return to this restaurant, because the quality of the food, and the while experience was just amazing
The restaurant’s environment is good, very suitable for dating or drinking and chatting. The overall level of food is acceptable, but there is nothing particularly amazing.
Great food and service
Enjoyed very much glad we came in!!!
Thank you all and please stay safe and healthy!
Happy holidays to all!
In spite of the COVID regulations, we felt welcome and were seated at a safe distance from other tables. The staff was attentive and helpful.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere! You can't ask for more.
Great food and amazing service!
I have eaten here many times and the food and service has always been first rate. Unfortunately, not this time. We were seated and after water was provided, the waiter was missing in action for over 45 minutes . Then we ordered drinks. The waiter took a half an hour to come back and take our order. Sadly the fish dish was well over cooked and had to be sent back. After dinner, no dessert or coffee was offered and we waited for the bill for another half an hour. Total time at the restaurant…..3 hours and 20 minutes. Not acceptable. I will go back however to see if this was a glitch or the new normal. The strip steak and bison steaks were fabulous, as were the scallops and Mac and cheese.
The waitress was very slow and forgot things that we airderrd
It took 45 minutes for raw oysters to be served
A jazz band had been advertised but there was not band
Service was fantastic. Appetizer and dinner were delicious. Lovely evening out!
The quality of dishes didn’t match up to the price mark. Very average. I have been to Sassafras many years ago and wasn’t impressed. It hasn’t changed since, in my opinion. But it was definitely busy. So, it’s seems like many people enjoying. For me the dishes lacked finesse.
My visit to Sassafraz was a little disappointing. It has been a few years since I was last there and I was expecting much more. I felt the service and venue were excellent but the food did not meet my expectations. I would rate the food as just alright and for the money spent this is just not good enough. I will probably not return to Sassafraz as there are many more good restaurants in Toronto to choose from.
Nice lunch with a window seat. Expensive but I suppose anything in a Yorkville is.. washrooms could have been much cleaner. Very obvious the floors hadn’t been cleaned in days.
Was a great place to have lunch with several friends. Good menu selections.
Every pleasant experience all around 👍🏻👍🏻
Our server was not very attentive..he was nice but forgot to put a steak knife and didnt come back for quality check.forgot our bottle of sparkling water. Food was great but service was disappointing
The Brunch has a nice extensive menu, atmosphere is relaxed and cheerful, great for family and friends get togethers..
Attentive and fun service. Chill, understated, elegant atmosphere. Solid martinis.
Christmas with the girls
Our waitress was wonderful.
We were there for a special occasion and she did everything possible to make it special.
The food was very good, the service excellent and the dining room is very pretty and quiet. I was pleased to see that all public health requirements related to Covid were being followed carefully.
It was a rainy evening and running late for my reservations. I called ahead and the host staff was understanding and accommodating. Upon arrival my first impression was I found the place to smartly decorated with contemporary styled furniture, the lights comfortably dimmed, and patrons to be young professionals casually dressed.
Once settled into my table within a few moments a waiter took the food and drink orders. The food and drink came out in an acceptable timely order. I give the steak dinner a solid 10/10 I have only had steak so perfectly done one other time in my life. This was a true medium well steak and cocktail was splendid to drink. I finished off dinner with a slice of chocolate cake, moist and not overly sweet. I walked away from this experience extremely satisfied and happy. I really I'm looking forward to visiting this establishment once again the future. Thank you for a lovely dinner experience.
Love brunch here - on both the bar side and restaurant. Delicious food. Servers were great! Love coming here.
It was so much better than I remembered it! The seared tuna was perfect! Our waiter, Vinay was the best! Looking forward to going back soon….
We love coming to Sassafraz, service is always great and excellent food and wine!
Great service and outstanding food! One of our favourite spots!
The pictures of the restaurant on Google don’t do it justice - it’s a beautiful little-big place!
I had the soup of the day (butternut squash) and the Village Burger, and my husband had the truffle frites and the salmon entree. Both meals were excellent! There is a great selection of wine, spirits, and cocktails. Our server was delightful and attentive. We dined on a Friday night and the restaurant was very quiet when we arrived at 5:30 but became very busy by the time we were leaving at 7:30. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but by no means over priced for a restaurant in the Yorkville area. Overall, a great place and we will very likely return
Seems as though the restaurant was short on staff. Also hard to understand why it took so long for our main course arrive given they were cold (by design). Plates were not cleared until we prompted the waiter.
Food was delicious, as always
We were given a table for three hiding beside a pillar. Nonstop foot traffic literally right behind me and my chair was bumped three times! Service was slow.
Service was great food was adequate
It was certainly an excellent dinner experience. .
Vig was our server and definitely made our experience totally amazing.
Excellent, in every way. Much larger inside than it appears! Beautiful design, great food, good lighting. I’d go back in a heartbeat.
