My husband and I were definitely not blown away by our dinner. I had ordered the salmon with risotto. The ‘risotto’ was not risotto at all, merely rice with a few pieces of corn in it. I returned my meal and instead got a pasta which arrived luke warm. The presentation of the food was very pretty and our waitress was very very good, recognizing that the rice looked dry and unappetizing. The wine list was very good and our martinis beforehand were excellent.
Loved the atmosphere, tables not too close, not too much noise, just relaxing. Excellent food, nice portion size, great wine list and wonderful service--subtle, appeared just when you need them, very low key.
Beautiful, romantic atmosphere, especially in the evening. Dessert (caramelized banana) was amazing, appetizer (duck pate) was great, mains (steak and halibut) were ok, though too salty for our tastes. Service was great, would return.
Didn’t like the food there
Had a fantastic experience for Saturday brunch with family. Service was attentive without being overbearing, food came out promptly and was all delicious and the ambiance was great! Will definitely be back..
Consistently good food and GREAT service!
We are never disappointed when we visit Sassafraz. This time we went on a rainy Sunday evening and were able to enjoy a very quiet casual evening in the bar area. It was wonderful. Had a light meal and enjoyed three shared plates ... fritto misto, fish taco and the beet & burrata salad which we accompanied with a beautiful bottle of wine. A very enjoyable evening out.
My fav restaurant! Good food, great service and right in the heart of the city!
The scones were burnt on the bottom and sent them back . The table beside had burnt scones as well. The other brunch food we had was very tasty
The service was absolutely horrible. We waited 15 minutes just to put in our drink order. Waitress never came back to check on us . We had to get attention of other servers to get assistance
Food and ambiance was fine. Service was very slow. Table next to us got up and left because no one paid attention to them and took too long to take their order. Some staff didn’t want to catch your eye to take a coffee request. My own waitress was as attentive as she could be although it was obvious they needed more staff on the floor.
I had a wonderful birthday brunch! Our waiter was very attentive and our meal was delicious!
Our first visit to this stylish, convenient resto. We really enjoyed our corner table and attentive servers. Starters and desserts, in particular, were divine. We'll return.
Food was a disappointment. Have been to dinner many times before, their prix fixe menu looked impressive, but food didn't meet expectations.
Décor is beautiful - love the back section where you feel you are on a patio indoors...food and service are excellent. Great retreat in the city
We were there on a Groupon with a limited menu so this may not be entirely fair. I had lamb meatballs which were OK and a slow roasted lamb shank that was very tender but not very flavorful. Desert was a flourless chocolate cake that was probably the best part. Good selection of wines by the glass. Our server was very friendly, attentive and helpful.
Very attentive service without rushing you. Food was very good.
Amazing food and service. Very attentive, great atmosphere. I will definitely be coming back soon.
Superb Superb Superb Superb Superb Superb Superb Superb
Not impressed with service fish was tasteless and dry.
Went for dinner - 5 guests , with a groupon for 4 and paid for the a la cadre menu for the 5th. The restaurant overcharged for the meals. Very lfew vegetarian options. Lovely ambiance but extremely noisy and slow service.
Entrée was bland
Terrific staff - Samantha lead by a Fantastic Manager- Ricky!!
All staff were professional and friendly!
We celebrated a girlfriend’s birthday over brunch and the service was great. Food was tasty (I had the crab omelette) and we had shared the baked apple, banana dessert and
We totally enjoyed our experience at Sassafras. Especially good were the oysters from New Brunswick with finely grated horseradish. I’ve never had better. My husband's roasted chicken breast was moist and delicious not boring. We felt welcomed and accommodated by an especially nice staff. Ambiance was very pleasant even though the dining room was crowded. Make reservations early or you might not get a table.
Great food, service and ambiance. Highly recommended
The service is good. Our waiter Stefan is awesome. Food is average.
Beautiful restaurant. Our waiter was amazing! Food is very good.
The meal was outstanding... each course more delectable than the last. Cocktails & dessert just as excellent... and the service was on point. The waiter was knowledgeable and provided great recommendations
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!
Always have a great food experience. Server was great - nice new clean look too
Excellent food, excellent service! Brian, our server, was outstanding!
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.
