My friend and i were disappointed. We paid $200 for so so service and burnt octopus. When we told her she didnt seem to care much at first.. she actually defended it as supposed to be that way. It was black and carcinogenic lol The shrimp appetizer was great definitely the best part and rosemary bread but our seafood plates were like i said burnt and average at best. ONE scallop! Definitely not a fine dining experience. Wine ridiculously priced but delicious and unavailable in LCBO so that was ok
Good points ambiance is amazing interesting menu perhaps just an off night ?
Reza....best waiter ever!!
Excellent meal- great and friendly staff. If you Italian food this is a great option
Always a great meal. Staff are very attentive. Nice cocktails and a good wine list.
Great service and food as always.
The service was excellent, very attentive and there were so many people looking after us! The dinner was very good 4 of the 5 orders were perfect and one was only one was ok. The octopus was grilled to perfection and was very tender. The only dish that wasn't perfect was the fish, not sure if it was over cooked or seasoning had broken down the flesh, but the fish was a bit mushy.
Sarpa is always my place to go in oak ridges, and the owner and his staff are always great. Good food with a perfect atmosphere
Made our special wedding night even more special. Thank you
Everything was good, we just waited a while to be checked on after we got our food and we waited about 20 mins to get our bill.
We love coming here for the eggplant parmigiana!
We’ve been to this restaurant a few times in the past and really enjoyed our stay , however this time the quality of food was not really what the price dictated $$premium . Server and hostess tried everything possible to make experience enjoyable - 5 stars for them.
The food is always excellent and the premium service compares to no other restaurant. The staff is exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and prompt. This is our family favourite neighbourhood restaurant.
The restaurant was cold and uncomfortable. For the price, you would expect table linens on the tables. Tables were jammed in and crowded. The service was not timely or attentive. The food was mediocre at best and the vegetables were awful. The wine menu is poor with very little selection. The main courses included next to nothing with them. Overall, dinner was a big disappointment!
Chef is always accommodating. Tenderloin wasn’t on menu but had it in the back so made it for my guest. Wild mushroom salad is a must have. See you soon!
It locates in a quite area and the setting inside are nice. The service we received was good and the salad was delicious. However the lamb dish of the day special I ordered wasn't not tasty.
I visited Sarpa with a friend on Saturday, January 20th. We both ordered the spaghetti vegano and both agreed that the meal was very bland with little flavour. Very disappointed. The waitress was good enough but we felt that we were rushed and had very little personal connection. I understand that the restaurant can get busy but it is important to maintain a level of personalized service . It is not a fast food drive through restaurant. A meal that was not creative enough and lacking in any flavour was over priced. Vegan/vegetarian meals can be creative and very delicious!
Finally, one would think that a restaurant would offer a red and white house wine. We were told there was only red to choose from. Also, only one copy of the dessert menu was offered to share. I think two would have been more appropriate.
Delicious food and great service. I will go back!
We made our reservation online and it was confirmed back to us, but they couldn’t find it when we arrived. We arrived 4 people instead of 2 but they were very accommodating. The food was excellent and the ambiance was great. It is a bit pricey so we would likely keep it for special occasions. Very nice place to dine.
Fabulous service and ambiance, will definitely return
Very nice atmosphere, but the food left something to be desired
Outstanding meal and service!
Highly recommend it. We were looked after from the minute we arrived
Excellent food and service.
Great local gem for friends get-together and special occasion night out !!!
Great food and awesome staff makes every experience feel personal! Treated our 7 year old son like family! Can’t wait to get back.
We arrived for our reservation and were told to wait. There really is no place to wait unless you sit on those ridiculous high chairs. So we wanted to wait at the bar. That couldn’t happen because of a private function.
The service was very poor. Again sat down and waiting again for someone to take our drink order. Finally she shows up and explains nothing about the specials just would we like water. The menu was nice but the service was uneventful and the lacked knowledge.
Amazing food, wine and service in our usual romantic booth - Thanks to Res :)
The food was great, interesting choices and the service was absolutely outstanding - they were able to accomodate us with oysters. The overall ambience is a bit noisy and they did not have any music playing initially so we could hear everyone's conversations.
Overall a very enjoyable meal and experience
Well worth it
It was a last minute decision to go out for dinner. Good to have such a nice place that's local and with great food. Pasta and wine both delicious, but we came in around 9:30 and you were all out of the calamari. I guess its a popular dish!
A reservation for lunch wasn't necessary but still a good idea. Tee restaurant was smaller than expected but the Romaine Salad and Chicken was the best I have tasted. My wife enjoyed the fish and soup feature of the day. Unlike the other reviews the portions were a great size and we didn't need desert. IT was more money than I expected but the food, staff and ambiance were good. Not a place we could afford to go to regularly. We will save it for a repeat visit for a special occasion.
We were disappointed in the fact that we were celebrating a birthday, once we finished eating we were asked to leave as there were 20 other customers waiting for tables. So we felt we were rushed. We spent over $500 for 4 people and being rushed out of a restaurant like that is very rude. We will not return as this is not the 1st time this has happened. Which is why it took us a while to return, but obviously this service hasn't changed. Our waitress was very attentive to our needs throughout the meal, it wasn't her that asked us to leave.
Nice restaurant. Very overpriced. have eaten in fine dinning restaurants that had a little more substance to your meal. It was dinner not lunch. 6 people to share finger length bread. Seriously there should have been two plates. For the price you pay for dinner you couldn't afford another plate of bread...
Good meals, need to provide more dessert variety (ice cream??)
Solid Italian fare, veal limone was tender and tasty. Seafood entry was perfectly cooked.
Thought we were swapping out grilled veggies for pasta, but was charged, bit of a surprise. Just check what you are ordering.
Comparable to downtown restaurants, but you don't have to drive all the way downtown. Good restaurant in a good location.
I"ve always enjoyed a great meal with friends to compliment an evening out and this meal was outstanding! with a service level that cant be found at most places. They actually went out of their way to provide a special combination of food.!
Absolutely amazing service was amazing and food. I love coming here for dinner and events ❤
Always a great experience at Sarpa. Service, food, and atmosphere make for a great night out celebrating.
Overall, we had a nice evening and enjoyed our food. We have been there many times and usually get over the top service, this time it was just ok. Our server didn't seem very interested in us but did do his job
