What a shame that Sassi will soon close (end of May). This is a remarkable restaurant with brilliant food and a beautiful building in a scenic location. We had one of the best meals I have ever had. I will follow this chef.

Great place for a nice dinner. Atmosphere, food and service are all great. We all ordered different items. They were all very good and unique. Well-prepared and served. The server made a small mistake with our order, but fixed that immediately. Will be back within few weeks.

I really hate to leave a negative review for Sassi, one of our favorite restaurants that is sadly closing its doors May 28th. In that case, it really doesn't matter. But we had very poor service on our last visit, April 7th, so much so that we had intended one final visit before the closing date and have now decided not to do so. Obviously, as the end nears, standards have declined. A sad epitaph for one of the finest restaurants in the Valley.

The SASSI patio was a lovely site for a delicious dinner. We love their mixed olives, served warmed, before dinner with drinks. The ingredients in all the dishes were extremely fresh, and they customized a dish for me to accommodate a food allergy. The waitstaff is outstanding.

Closing their doors on 5/26. Shows both in their food and service.

It was good not great. For the price point it should be great. Plenty of good around considerably less expensive.

We were very disappointed by our meal. We found out after that the restaurant has been sold and will be closing soon. It was evident in the food selections and preparation. Our server was helpful and efficient but he couldn't compensate for the lack of quality of food. Had we known, we would have selected another restaurant. This was a special occasion to get together with friends and was in the planning for several months! Sad!

Food was good, but we went for Easter Brunch and the online price we were quoted was $52 a person when we got there the price was $69 a person, big difference and that was disappointing because we had a group of 7 so quite a bit more than we planned
