Very nice meal - good value.
Service was friendly but very slow.
Had a wonderful Sunday Brunch - literally could not decide what to order as all options on menu are mouth watering. See you again real soon!
Food is good for its price but I made a reservation 2 weeks before saying it's my boyfriend's birthday and they gave us bad seats beside bathroom hallway with meh waiter. The dessert was good tho. Definitely might try their brunch but there are lots of good brunch places in Toronto than here.
Excellent food and service. Definitely will go again.
Great dining experience. I will recommend to friends who like a good dining experience and food.
The restaurant was very busy when we arrived, we were seated at a table that seemed to be in the middle of the route to the kitchen on both sides, but then we were not served. We ordered a bottle of wine, which we had to ask for a second time, after our first course had arrived. Over all it was a nice evening, the noise level was very high, but the restaurant has no control over this. We like the decor at this event, normally the serve is better, for a Tuesday night, but I was glad to see the restaurant was busy. Food was good, but we have had better there. The dessert was awesome , flourless chocolate bar. We would visit again.
We ordered the burger and found that the bun was too big for the burger I hate when that happens. But the burger for flavor was tops. The fries, the mac and cheese, the sausages, the need tartare all excellent dishes. And then you have the elegant backdrop of the decor all lovely.
Had the mushroom and leek pasta-amazing. The chocolate cake with ice cream was delicious. Definitely will return!
Excellent food, excellent service! Brian, our server, was outstanding!
Always have a great food experience. Server was great - nice new clean look too
Good spot for dates! Service was great, food was fresh and delicious.
Would definitely go back
Service was excellent. Was underwhelmed by the food. specially disappointed with the ceviche.
A lovely spot for lunch. Great food, service and atmosphere. Will be back!
Great food good service my go to restaurant mid town
Loved my Lamb meatball appetizer, Burger was good, but not outstanding and the baked apple with Ice Cream dessert was delicious. Great location and really good quality food and service.
Amazing place. Was in Toronto Ocer the weekend and we came here for my birthday brunch. Loved everything from the ambience to our delicious food! Highly highly recommended! Perfect for date nights or day or just a place to grab lunch with your girlfriends!
Food was average, below our expectations. We were there before and the food was much better then.
Service was good, though it took a lot of time to get the food.
The noise level was high, another table next to us was creating a lot of noise and it was hard to have a conversation.
The food was god as expected. This was not my first time. My only complaint was I asked for my fries without salt,and they cam lightly salted. I said nothing. One reason was that my companion and I were chatting and there were other tastes on my plate so it took me a while to realize that something was amiss. However I would go back and make sure I am more observant
This was a weird experience! Everything was off! Our service was super slow and not that great. There must have been something going on at another table, but our food took forever and there were not that many people in the restaurant. Maybe our server forgot to pick up our order. Our mains were terrible: fish totally overcooked and tasted fishy & off, leek and mushroom agnolotti was flavourless, our desserts were not great either. Flourless chocolate cake was way too dense, creme caramel tasted sour and off. The only ok thing in our meal was our apps: beef tartare was ok, mushroom salad not bad and tuna and shrimp ceviche was way too rich. NOT A GOOD experience at all for a place that claims to be so high end.
Food was terrific and service was very good as well. They know when to come to the table and not.
I got charged TWICE for my meal because the machine wasn’t working.
Food was cold. Service was slow
The food was good but too salty
Wonderful dinning experience! First time going there with my family using Groupon! Love the ambience and also the food selections. Service was great and food portion was generous! Will definitely come back for their regular menu. Be sure to get there before six to go to the inside portion of the restaurant and you will not be disappointed.
Beautiful room, especially in the back which feels like you are outside on a patio - love it! Food overall was good, only complaint is the Chana Masala on the Brunch menu had no Indian spice or spice at all...it was delicious but really its just chickpeas and tomato...calling it chana masala is misleading.
Great date night.
Have always wanted to go here since I was a teenager....lol Everything was great except for the slightly chessy waiter. Not rude of anything. Prompt service... just seemed a little off to me. Maybe just an off day...
The ambience is perfect! Beautiful, relaxing and peaceful! The menu has lots of variety. The food from appetizer to dessert is excellent, well prepared and delicious. The staffs are always very friendly, helpful and attentive. A very enjoyable dinner and a great night the whole family's. That's why we keep coming back. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
There is nothing better than brunch beside a green wall and under skylights on a cold grey miserable morning.
Dependable, good ambiance, friendly service, good food, always feel good at Sassafraz. Lots of light and good energy.
Love this venue for pleasant ambience and service. Some food items can be a little lacking such as absent sauce or jus on meat dishes, but overall always a reliably special place for lunch or dinner.
Had lunch with a friend here last weekend. Second time I'd been to this restaurant. First time was many years ago (pre fire) and the ambiance and decor was lovely and special then. That's not the case now. I was disappointed in the austere, drab, uninspired interior. Food was okay. We were hoping to have lunch, but there was only a limited brunch menu. Overall I was quite disappointed. However, our server was good. I have no desire to return.
Sassafraz is beautiful restaurant. The dining areas are spacious and lovely with lots of windows. Service is excellent. And the menu has a good selection well prepared dishes. I particular like their brunch offerings
We were promptly greeted and even checked on as we waited. Great care taken by the staff to ensure our satisfaction. And that was all before we even entered the dining room. The hostess, wait staff and sommelier were attentive to our needs. The food was fabulous. I'm partial to their oysters, leek and mushroom agnolotti and unique sorbet flavours.
Excellent service as usual. Nice interior design. The food was really good. I had the Bison Short Rib is it very flavourful and tender. My other half had the halibut in a mussel broth and that was also very tasty. Sassafrass is one of my very favourite restaurants.
The experience was quite poor. First we went to get a special item in their menu - avocado toast- and they said they did not have it that day and this was first thing after the restaurant opened in the morning. We asked to substitute fries instead of meat in a meal since we are vegetarian and the waitress agreed. When we got the bill we were charged $7 for it. When asked I was told that the chef could not substitute. But the waitress should have told me this instead of giving me the fries and charging me for it. Then we ordered dessert and the sorbet was supposed to be passion fruit. But we got a cinnamon sorbet. When asked we were told that the chef changed this and the menu is not updated. Again seems like this is a dishonest approach. They should tell customers the changes rather than just providing something that is different from the menu. All of this and not a single apology from the chef.
I think this reflects poor service and lack of care and passion for food by the chef and the staff!
What a dissapointment for a special occasion!
Hostess asked us twice for our Groupon... Before she seated us we told her we weren't using a Groupon. Then in the middle of our meal she interrupted us to ask us a second time. Our waitress never asked us, why the hostess asked us twice, we don't understand. Sure ask before seating a party, but then to ask mid-meal? We hadn't asked for the bill... This was the night of Saturday, Feb. 16th around 8:30-9pm. She didn't seem to ask other couples or parties. Maybe because we were younger than the crowd there? Meanwhile two other, older couples around us did use Groupons... But she didn't ask them. Then again, we were the only visible minority in the vicinity... Odd. Our waitress however was great!
Amazing service. We have brunch here every weekend, baby stroller in tow and they do their best to accommodate us.
The food and ambiance were both delightful !
Elegantly appointed, attentive service and lovely atmosphere. Food presentation was thoughtful but this time there were hits and misses in the flavours of various dishes - Tuna and Shrimp Ceviche and Leek and Mushroom Agnolotti were definite hits, although the dishes I ordered were meh - Warm Maitake Mushroom Salad and excessively bland - Lamb Shank with White Bean and Arugula Ragout. In the end, the delightful Lemon Creme Caramel saved the day, however, I do take issue to the 2 tiny garnishes on top being referred to as a "grapefruit and orange salad". Also, the day after Valentine's and no flowers on the table? It's the little touches that elevate a restaurant to superb and I felt that those were missing this time around. Still a lovely restaurant that would impress your date, but resting on its laurels a bit.
Server was really great !! Great restaurant selection for our lunch !!
Food was not up to standard and disappointed!
