Set in an array of Victorian rowhouses, Sassafraz has evolved through the decades to become a magical space in the heart of historic Yorkville. Located at the corner of Bellair and Cumberland, the little yellow house has "seen it all" from the early hippie movement of the 60"s to the lack of movement that comes from too much Bordeaux. Sassafraz offers an exceptional menu serving market-driven, French-inspired Canadian cuisine.

It was Sunday and they offer only brunch. But luckily burger on menu for partner and pancakes daughter said were great tasting. I enjoyed the egg white omelet with quinoa salad.

Beautiful afternoon spent at Sassafraz. I made a request for a round table in the back room. We arrived 1 hour early and they still honoured that request. Service was wonderful. The food, delicious. It's a little pricey but not unreasonable for Yorkville. It felt more like an experience than just lunch.

Perfect place for a date. Great light with quiet atmosphere. Very polite and professional staff. Tables are set really nicely. Green P near by few minutes walk away. Food were excellent and unique. Great restaurant and would always re-visit. 9.5/10.

Generally superb cuisine, attentive service and elegant ambiance, slightly marred this time by a lukewarm entree, having to remind staff about our wine and drinks order which didn't arrive until after the appetizers were finished and a misunderstood dessert substitution. Still a lovely restaurant, but a little disappointing considering the price point and reputation.
