We had a Groupon yet was treatedWe had a Groupon yet was treated like a normal guest (unlike some other restaurants). We ordered several drinks (including a hibiscus champagne which was lovely).
The steak and scallops were delicious and dessert (creme brulee and chocolate malt cake) were exceptional. I didn't love the Boar Terrine but my husband enjoyed it. The beet salad was also very good.
My only issue was that the bass that was offered on the Groupon menu was no longer available (unless you order off the regular menu). Instead it was halibut which I'm not a fan of. No big deal but a couple items were changed so it's good to be aware of that.
Our server was amazing and the manager popped by to say hi as well. We really enjoyed our meal!9/2/2013 12:00:00 AMDecent Business Restaurant on a MitI hosted 2 business guests from the States. It was a Monday nite so we got the best seat in the house (under the sky roof at the back). The bar tender, Hostess and waiting staff were all freindly and responsive. The food (we all had the scallops) was perfect. The wine list is OK but there is a dearth of entry level and mid priced offerings.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMRainy night dinner in TorontoThe waiter was great. Food was very good, although it seemed to take forever to get. Froze near a wall that was open to outside.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat neighborhood restaurantGreat location in Bloor Yorkville, place to be seen. Lots of energy at night. Food and wine were ok; we were there to enjoy the dinner atmosphere. Service was fine, our waiter was helpful and kind. Loved the indoor waterfall -atrium area.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMDeserving of PraiseThis was the third visit to Sazzafras, once for brunch, once for tea and most recently, for lunch. Everything was to our liking. Our server "mothered us," with considerate and caring service. Our party included a quiet four month old infant who was made welcome. The food was delicious and the room fresh and light with crisp white tablecloths. The backdrop of the wall carpeted with lush live greenery and a waterfall. Just before the bill we were presented with tiny luscious chocolate truffles. All of us were pleased and agreed we would come back soon.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSassafraz lives up to expectationsWe went to Sassafraz as a small group celebrating the end of a successful season. The restaurant completely lived up to our expectations - excellent food, friendly and attentive service, fine libations. We certainly will be back.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMlovely lunch!I met a colleague for lunch and was reminded about what a terrific spot this is. Our food was tasty -- my friend had the entree with quinoa and I had the hazelnut encrusted scallops, we shared the 'donuts' for dessert. Service was exceptional.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMan excellent lunchAn excellent lunch. The service and food were great. Saw the restaurant on Open Table and thought would give a try. Parking was close. A very good experience and would definitely go back.
Thanks5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant LunchI loved the natural light that washed the dining room during our lunch. Every detail looked elegant without having an air of being overly thought out.
The food was delicious. I highly recommend the scallops! They were seared perfectly and worked well with everything else in the dish. The mushroom risotto was also delicious.
Service was wonderful, little added notes like oven fresh bread at the very beginning, ensuring that our glasses were never empty and serving us with complimentary chocolates at the end of our meal really stood out.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWOW WOW WOWI had the pleasure of eating in this establishment for the first time. the food was outstanding the service was impeccable and the restaurant was magical.I would like to put a special note out to the lovely lady manager I think her name was Birgett who was a pleasure to talk to, she was so warm and welcoming.
