Great Sunday breakfast menu. Everything was amazing. Service was great as well
Beautiful restaurant, fantastic salad, great staff when they were available (service a little slow, especially getting that first cocktail drink ... mistake!). Menus were cheap, flimsy paper ... totally out of place for that locale of a restaurant, with other aspects so much higher standard. Until their service level (quicker/more solicitous), menu standards and overall appearance of staff goes up a notch, I couldn't recommend this yet. Note: No offence but someone should be monitoring the appearance of and supervising some of the staff. A few (a hostess - ?) included, looked like they had just thrown themselves together after being hungover all day, squeezed into a cheesy Walmart outfit, and walked around looking a little clueless. Standards need raising all round. Great spot though in the heart of Yorkville. Surely someone can raise it back to its old standard..? let's hope so. I did have cocktails there once in the last six months, at happy hour, sitting at the bar, and it was fun and the bar-tending staff were outstanding. So...for cocktails I'd still go there, but not again for dinner unless something gets changed. Thank you for letting me share my opinion
Excellent great service delicious food!
Was a groupon gift from friends, the menu this time wasn't as good as the previous time. The menu selection was ok, the star of the dish was appealing but the sides wasn't. Overall was an ok meal.
Wonderful meal, superb service, location & modern decor to boot! Food was creative & tasty & service was excellant. I will come back, this is a family staple, we generally dine at Sassafraz twice a year.
Wonderful experience. We had two children under 3 and everyone was very accomadating to the children. The food was delicious well worth the drive from the suburbs
Made us feel warmly welcome even with Groupon.
Food and service were great.
Very good. Always enjoyed Sassafraz. I wonder how it will look after the renovation.
I like this restaurant because is really beautiful and cozy, the food is always amazing, I loved the octopus! The wine selection is notable and the service is great, really friendly and efficient.
Table was not ready when I arrived on time. Staff + Manager were unapologetic.
Yeh food was good overall but the service was very slow.
Great food, good service and atmosphere
Went with friends for dinner and found our server to be friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. The food was amazing and we felt very comfortable taking our time and not feeling rushed. Would recommend Sassafraz to anyone looking for a wonderful experience!
Good food. Perfect customer service. Definitely will be back
Overall very nice food and service. However, front of the house is horrible and not accommodating at all
Always a great meal. Creative menu and great service.
Went here on a Groupon which included app, entree and dessert which was good value. Portions were just right and flavorful. The cheese selection for dessert was too garlicky for my tastes but other than that the meal was good. Waitress did not offer to refill coffee but rest of service was fine. Good ambience and busy for a Thursday. I think sassafraz does a fair amount of Groupon business Jan to March.
We had a very good meal and the service was excellent. The atmosphere is lovely.
Love this place! They made our dinner very special!
Amazing as always; even their groupon menu is inventive, beautiful prepared and presented, and staff are attentive and friendly. Great restaurant that I am happy to revisit as often as I can.
We had such a great time this evening. Our server was absolutely exceptional. I’m a vegan and he took extra care to lay out options for me. Thank you for a great anniversary dinner experience.
We had a really good time at Sassafraz. The service was wonderful and the food really good.
Will be back for sure.
Overall the meal was quite good with a smaller menu. However, if you are a diner with dietary restrictions, do call in advance as the options are limited. Lovely ambiance with a split between having the option to lounge in the front with comfy sofas or fine dining with white table cloths in the next room beyond the glass doors. The service was perfect. Our waiter was attentive without being intrusive and truly did try to accommodate our dietary restrictions, but was limited with the menu. But what we had was superb.
This is the second bad experience I've had at Sassafraz. I ordered a hamburger and it was soggy and the meat was grey and it was tasteless. The service was not great - we were served well in the beginning, but then the waitress never came back for me to order another glass of wine. It wasn't very busy. Not surprised.
Very good food, fresh and well prepared. The crab/corn chowder was excellent the Mac&Cheese app was very tasty. The burger was great. Excellent place for a reasonable lunch and I would like to go back for dinner. They seemed to have a v g wine selection although we did not have a glass.
The dessert creme brule was excellent.
Service was professional
Service was excellent, the food was disappointing for the price
Service was very good, our waitress was superb. The food was excellent. Everything was perfect, cannot find anything negative to write.
Disappointed. Hostess needs better training and seemed scattered.Asked if we were redeeming coupon to which I replied that I had a gift card. She assumed we had purchased Groupon deal which was incorrect. Given Groupon menu (covered in spilled food) and had to request the full menu. Subsequently asked by another hostess for our voucher leaving us to again explain that we were not with Groupon. Bench seating at back of restaurant needs a good shampoo. Menu has good variety but over-priced given quality and quantity. Bright spot in evening was our server, Brian. Very friendly and competent. Had hoped for a special evening out and instead spent $250 for "meh."8
Great dinner! Food was amazing and very fullfilling! We go to this restaurant once every couple of month and the food never disappoints. Their Arctic char was cooked to perfection!
As always the ambiance, the food, but above all the service is excellent. Keep the good job.
I’ve been there a few times for lunch but diner was better
Just wanted to try sassafraz with my husband. I had bought a deal from groupon. They have a seperate menu for groupon, so you have to inform them that you are doing groupon. It was a little awkward since i had called in advance to let them know that and they still gave us regular menus. When the waiter came to take the order, he informed us of different menus and brought them over. It took half an hour just to place the order. The groupon menu doesn’t have steak or other expensive items on the menu. In the end it cost us almost the same if we had gotten regular menu items and skipped on dessert. The dessert menu options on groupon are very limited so we ended up leaving it anyways. However, sassafraz as a restaurant is very nice,
I am just not sure if would ever do the groupon thing again.
I told the waiter I wanting the fish medium well but the fish was raw and meal was warm but not hot. I told the waiter my fish was raw and he was not happy. After 15 minutes the person gave me another fish and fish was cook and hot.
This was first mybexperience of the Sasaphraz restaurant. The meal was quite good and for at a reasonable price. The service was excellent and 'forgetful people' friendly. We left a package at our table and the server caught up to us on the street to return it to us just as our ride was pulling up to the curb.
We hope to be back some time in the future.
Delicious and well worth every penny. The food was excellent as was the service and location.
Great food, I've come here for 10 years and it's always amazing.
Good ambiance and service located in the Yorkville area.
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.
