It is a very nice place we sat in corner to close to other tables. Four people were seated next to us after us. Even though our order was taken first they got their dinners first, table cleaned off first , serviced first all evening long. not sure why that happened. but I still left them a very good tip!!
Fantastic dining experience- a little expensive for the portions received :)
Great food great service!!! Could not if asked for a nicer evening!! Food was delicious plus the service is warm welcoming & friendly!! We have been coming to Sarpa for years & hadn't been in a while. Certainly at the top of our list!
The food is absolutely delicious, service is ever better.
Great lux downtown feel!!
As usual, a very enjoyable evening at Sarpa. We shared the charcuterie plates - great selection of delicious items. I had my fave grilled lamb chops lamb with the amazing cannellini beans. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Sarpa is by far my favourite restaurant in the Newmarket/Aurora/Oak Ridges are.
Another great evening at Sapras
Service was very good. Nice and relaxed. We stayed late until we were the last ones at the restaurant and the staff let us be to enjoy our wines and company.
Amazing food and awesome service. Staff is friendly and helpful and quick.
We love Sarpa! Consistently great food. Nice for date night or a special occasion. Love.
I was lucky to find this place when searching for a vegetarian-friendly restaurant in an area my family was going to be travelling through on a busy Saturday. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. The menu has such variety, and the quality of the ingredients is wonderful; everything we ate was delicious and perfectly-prepared. There were so many yummy options for the one vegetarian in our party, and they seemed to be dishes that just happened to not contain meat (rather than some weird item just thrown together to give veg people something to order). We will definitely be returning to this wonderful restaurant - it will be worth the drive ! We were hot and tired and very casually dressed and the staff did not blink an eye at that - we felt so welcome.
Excellent evening at Sarpa with a group of old friends to celebrate a birthday. Service was excellent, food was delicious and everyone was very pleased with our choice of restaurant.
Food was excellent on both occasions we came. Bus boys need more training as they never gave the right dish to the right person. Also they should know what the dishes are as well.
Waitress brought out 2 wrong entrees causing 2 of us to eat later than our party of 4.
However she bounced back through her kindness in free wine and dessert. This is why we will come back . Just a little too loud but décor and ambiance are stellar.
I have been here a few times and everything was great. Friday night, however, the server seemed very new and gave us an appetizer with added bread crumbs ( we are gluten free) and had specially requested no bread crumbs. When the meals arrived she had placed the order incorrectly so one of us did not get the dinner until all the others had finished. This server avoided our table until it was time to order coffee and dessert. Very unprofessional. I am disappointed with the level of service. The food, as usual was delicious.
Overall good but way too pricey.. could pay much less and have similar food experience (The Keg, Moxie's, etc...)
A later time will help avoid the family meal time
We have been to Sarpa once before on a visit to the Toronto area and thoroughly enjoyed it.
This trip we wanted to entertain family and this was the ideal spot for distance for everyone.
Everyone said the same thing, great food, and great service ages ranged from 20's to 80's, more importantly was the fact once we had paid the bill, no one came and bothered us as we caught up on all the news, much appreciated by all.
We will definitely will be back and feed back is there is a special anniversary coming up and that couple have decided Sarpa will be their choice for the celebration.
We celebrated Mother's Day and it was a wonderful evening, good food and ambience . Made my evening special .
I have read a lot of good review of this restaurant hence I decided to take my mom to this restaurant for Mother's Day dinner. In the morning of Mother's Day, I missed the call from the restaurant and I got busy later and dimly call them back. I can't believe they cancelled my reservation!!! Finally I got my table back but I have been experienced such a ridiculous cancellation. When we arrived, the restaurant looks ok but I have requested a quiet area which I didn't get. During our dinner, there are a bunch of young guys kept giving us the wrong salads, wanted putting cheese on our steak and the worst part is from beginning to the end, our server didn't ask us how our food is and if we need anything. We couldn't get hold of anyone and left alone. It was such a horrible experience and our server was treating the other tables 100 times nicer than us. I did complained to one of the owners and he gave us the dessert. It's not the matter of whether we got free treat, rather the staff totally ruined our Mother's Day and both me and my mom are so disappointed. The rating is over rated and we will not go back next time for sure!
The service was great! Friendly staff! Fast and efficient! Loved the food!
Amazing experience from walking in to walking out. Reza was our host for the evening and he was an amazing one. I'll definitely be returning here.
Amazing food, service and ambience. Fantastic night in an excellent restaurant - from beginning to end. Thank you!
Our family enjoyed our dinner very much. The bison carpaccio was a favourite. The server was friendly and attentive. We will definitely return!
I believe the restaurant has changed their menu. Not impressed by the new menu, food was rather bland. Ambience was nice but for the price, I was disappointed by the food thoroughly.
The food and service was amazing.
Thank you. We celebrated a special birthday and we were both impressed with the whole experience.
Great service. Food is very good and great wine selection. Branzino is excellent!
Absolutely perfect dining experience from start to finish. Can't wait to go back.
Am surprised to see a restaurant with such quality up north. Usually will have to drive all the way down to Dowtown to get some quality food with good ambience. Had gnocchi and it was awesome, the sauce was rich in flavour. Will come again!
The restaurant was a bit noisy while we were there, but there was a large birthday party going on in the bar. The food was fantastic! And the waiter recommended a very nice wine with the meal.
More and more disappointed with the food at this restaurant. The food used to be phenomenal but as years go by the selection and flavors have gone downhill. Pricey menu for what you get. Not the same as it used to be.
The only thing that got on my nerves is that we explained to our server that we would be sharing everything....Each dish that came out I had to consistently request serving utensils. This should be something the server should have handled right from the start.
Friend in town from New York
Beautiful late evening dinner
Food was good, service was excellent, and a very nicely designed decor. Tables are too close to each other which takes away some privacy for the customer and less intimate experience. I would definitley go again and try the seafood dish next time.
We went to Sarpa for Valentine's Day. It was VERY busy and noisy (to be expected on such an occasion). The restaurant is quite pricey to begin with but I think the prices must have been jacked up even more for Valentine's Day. Our bill was almost $300 and if I recall correctly, the Chianti that I had was $22/glass; ridiculous. Anyway, I wasn't overly shocked as I know it's an expensive restaurant but I wish we had just gone to our neighbourhood pub lol. Great for a special occasion I guess but not (for us) on a regular basis.
Wonderful as always!
Consistently excellent service, very good food, and ambiance. Michael, one of the owners, always makes time to say hello and be attentive when he's speaking to you. I really enjoy all of their restaurants - Terra and Francobollo too.
The food was good, as was the service. It is pricey, however.
Service was good and very friendly. The food was mostly good. The calamari was nothing special, too rubbery. The main meal was good. Overall, on the expensive side, service good, and food [mostly] good.
I have been here numerous times without incident. On this occasion however, the kitchen seemed to be off their game.
My meal (Vegetarian Lasagna and Spaghetti Squash w Vegan cheese) arrived barely lukewarm, and my friend found her meal (pappardelle) to be tasteless.
On the upside, the serving staff were very attentive and efficient at making it right. My meal was reheated and returned to me, and my friend was offered a different entree.
At the end of the meal we were offered complimentary dessert and after dinner drinks. We declined the drinks, as we were both driving, so they deducted our before dinner drinks from the bill.
Overall, I can't complain, because it was the only negative experience I've had there, and the staff didn't need any prompting to make it right. It's still one of my 'go to' restaurants in North RIchmond Hill/Oak Ridges. :)
My wife's birthday dinner with my kids. I'm a regular here and I was surprised that my Wife's $14 dessert was not on the house but on our bill.
The last few times I have been, the portions have gotten smaller, for example, the mushroom salad was very small.
Great place, however this night was disappointing.
