Staff/servers were very kind and hardworking. Food overall tasted fresh and flavourful. Cappuccino and smoked salmon eggs benedict... a must.
Very nice dinner on the patio. Got a spot with a good heater. Food was fantastic. Service was very friendly and professional - quite slow but understandable in the circumstances. Enjoyed it.
Cozy patio with great heaters. Loved our appetizers- steak tartare and mac and cheese. Steaks were great! We were celebrating a birthday and wait staff made us feel special! Can’t wait to go back.
Food has degraded
All dining is currently outdoor.
So many heaters are provided that my seat was warm.
So cosy thank you
Outside patio did not have enough heat lamps (Covid restaurant eating), found an olive pit in my pasta that did not have olives in it which would indicate someone spit an olive pit in my food (during covid.. this is repulsive). Service was mediocre.
Very friendly staff and the food was great. I had the mac and cheese to start and the beef tenderloin after that and both were delicious.
The food is woth coming even this pandemic time, amazing choices, always a good meal, sitting at the middle of the street with the on again off again propane fire due to 3windy condition after the rain. We had blankets, the wine helps a bit to keep us warm. Lovely experience for the preparation the management has made us comfortable under the circumstances. Thankyou.
Always a great experience here, pre pandemic and during the pandemic, Sassafraz consistently delivers an excellent experience in every way. Service is great, food is great, and I am looking forward to the resumption of normalcy in the restaurant business and certain Sassafraz will be leading the way with their commitment to excellence and loyalty to their customers.
I love this restaurant. I miss having the Miami Short Ribs on the Menu though. My colleagues & I always looked forward to it.
Way overpriced for what it was - mediocre at best. Our waitress also forgot about us and we waited almost 30 minutes for the check.
Sassafraz is a favorite. We sat on the heated patio, the server was terrific, and food was delicious.
They didn't rush us at all...we sat chatting for more than an hour after we paid the bill.
My Husband and I had a Lovely lunch. We were looked after by the charming servers Amil and Benita.
Such care and attention from them both. Thank you for making our anniversary special.
We will be back soon.
Great service - very toasty sitting outside near heaters (a must at this time of year) and great food.
I had an amazing time yesterday. It was my first time there, but Austin made my wife and I very comfortable. Austin service and recommendations were spot on. The food was unbelievable good. Thanks Austin.
Sassafraz provided a wonderful dining experience. We can't wait to come back.
Our server was awesome second time she has served myself and my girlfriend she is very professional and kind and you can tell she loves her job which you don't always see
Dinner on a Saturday evening, sitting at a sidewalk table, was fine - food (gazpacho followed by chicken) and wine were decent - our server was good in spite of the challenges the servers faced serving across the public sidewalk and Saturday evening crowd - the people at the next table were drinking heavily but generally well behaved - their smoking (cigars and e-cigarettes) on the sidewalk immediately adjacent to our table, however, was a negative - we enjoy this restaurant when we’re in town - great people-watching and generally competent food and service, which is more than you can say about many Yorkville restaurants
Went for drinks with friends, good ambiance and good service!
Matre Di's was able to give us a table rather than stay at bar. Kudos to her.
Fish tacos were poor
Worst I have had out of 5 restaurants - other 4 were all in Victoria BC area
The food was amazing. The server was super friendly and had great recommendations. We will definitely be coming back.
Sensational patio dining with attentive servers and innovative dishes. Felt very safe because of all the Covid precautions.
Amazing service, love the setting and the food was amazing
We ate dinner on the patio. The service was excellent and the food was delicious.
Great Sunday brunch on the patio.
Great service!!! Delicious food!
Our experience was underwhelming. There is nothing special/exciting about the brunch menu items. Service was extremely slow, and we were definitely forgotten at different times during our visit (we were waiting to ne moved in the dining room... which they forgot about.)
I had to ask our waitress to tell us which cheeses were on the cheese board (should be a given)... and the cheeses were small, poorly chosen, and not fresh. I do think a menu facelift is necessary (at least for weekend brunch). Also must fix outdoor heaters so that patio can be fully enjoyed by guests.
Had brunch on a Saturday in the cafe. Eggs benny and tuna salad were both excellent. Service was too notch.
The braised lamb pasta was amazing
Fun evening. Whether was good for outdoor dining in busy Yorkville.
Sassafraz has excellent cooking of a most interesting menu. The wait staff were excellent; they ensured we were served at each stage and remembered our preferences. We were celebrating a birthday and so received a complementary candle and treats.
Absolutely superb service, exterior ambiance and good food.
Wonderful lunch with friends. One of our first meals out . Everything was perfect
Soup excellent. Beet salad too small and a little boring. Waiter excellent.
Menue is limited but what we got was gorgeous, bore chop was delicious and partner got the tenderloin steak , cheesecake so creamy , cocktail s and staff were also great !
Great food, great service, great location, great ambience
We ate outside. The table was nice and well spaced between evergreens. Our waiter was attentive, knowledgeable, and professional. Great Manhattans for a start. The tomato and white bean salad was both refreshing and delicious. We ach had different mains and enjoyed them: chicken, salmon and tuna. The chocolate bar with ice cream for dessert was out of this world. Always have a great dining experience at Sassafraz. Thank you.
Another excellent meal and outstanding service - thanks, Bettina!
