I really enjoy the food and ambience however I do find their wines by the glass very expensive. I think the value is there for the food but do not want to pay $20 for a glass of wine.

We have been here a number of times and it has been excellent. This time was disappointing as it took an extra half hour past our reservations to seat us and the service was slow. One of the meal was delivered 10 minutes after the rest of the meals. I love the food but if this is the new service level, not sure I want to go back.

Service was excellent, food was 10/10..the best Arugula chicken breast salad I have ever had!
The only problem was the voice level was extremely loud, the restaurant has an echo, high ceilings, and conversations were difficult.
for that reason, I would not come back, between 12 - 2pm.
Hopefully a later lunch hour, may reduce the volumne.

Our seating was adjusted at my request ... after that all was well. The server assigned to our table was personable and helpful. After sampling their choice of wine pairing for our meals, we each ordered a full glass of the rose suggested. Salads were delish ... we could tell a quality olive oil and fresh veggies were used. Entrees arrived hot and so tasty, we didn't add any seasonings at the table. As full as we were, a dessert was shared and well enjoyed. Thank you, Sauce, for an enjoyable Monday evening.
Besides the restaurant setting, there's a Deli and Coffee Shop side to the place. I can see us enjoying selections from there on another visit.

The service was slow, it took 20 minutes to get our appetizer then longer for the salad and main course. The food was dried out and not appealing when it finally arrived. Overall experience was not good.

I have had many wonderful meals here and for me this time was no exception! However my friend was very disappointed in her meal. The server brought the wrong dish. When my friend mentioned the error she offered to replace it, but my friend said she would try the meal served. However the replacement was very disappointing. The server apologized and did not charge her for her meal. It put a damper on our lunch, but the error was handled fairly well - and we will certainly go back again. One disappointing meal out of many, many excellent ones is still a good track record!

We have had several meals at the Sauce & really enjoy the food. It is a great place to catch-up with friends as it is quiet enough to be able to socialize. Excellent service at a reasonable price. Several people who have joined us for a first time dining experience have suggested we return.
Lunch is terrific! Thank you to all staff!

I have always enjoyed Sauce and I will continue to go back. I like not having to go downtown to have a good meal in a nice environment. On this occasion I forgot Monday was one of their pasta nights. Nothing wrong with pasta nights, but they don't allow you to order anything from their regular menu, which surprised me since they would have got more money out of me. Kyle was our waiter and although he wasn't a bad waiter, we felt he was rushing us. Also, on Mondays the kitchen closes at 9pm, so don't go too late.

We have been coming to Sauce since it opened. It is still good, but is gradually declining in terms of value. The Pasta Night on Monday, is not the deal it was. We had two Pasta's in and also a take out off the Pasta Menu and when the bill came the Take Out was $17, and it is soon going up to $20. We had difficulty understanding how it is more expensive to take out than eat in. The wine sampler that you get for signing up for a card has always been 2 oz for us, until tonight. It is now 1 oz. We shall still frequent the restaurant on Pasta Special Nights.

I had heard the food was good. I knew nothing else...I booked a table for two so was surprised to find that we were sharing a table. We were at the end of a long table. After half an hour of chatting to my friend, the diner across the table, next to my friend, commented on our discussion and joined in! I was totally taken aback. I wasn't expecting this. No harm done but it would have been nice to know we were not going to be given a table for two!
Food, however, was great and I will go back...just not for anything requiring confidentiality or privacy!!!

I had heard that this place was a good place to check out. So a couple of friends from out of town and I decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised, service as very good, and the food was well above average. We shared 3 appetizers, and chose mains dishes of carbonara, gnocchi and ravioli. All the dishes were very well prepared. Throw in a good bottle of Syrah at a very good price and it ended up being very good value for the food and the service.
I will be bringing the family back one evening soon.

This is a great place to go to meet long time friends. The service is great.
The atmosphere is good and the food is well prepared and tastes great. It is quiet so you can have good conversations with no interruptions.
There is one complaint and that is parking can be a problem if the Sauce is busy. This is a problem especially in the winter or on rainy days.
I use this place for long lunches.

Was quite disappointed. There were six of us and we chose this place because of the menu.

We had been looking at this menu for two weeks. We even checked the menu the day of the reservation.

We arrived only to find out the menu had changed a week ago. All 4 items we really wanted were not on there. When you specifically go for certain items and they are not there, the meal just isn’t great no matter what.

They said that’s just the way it is. Menus online don’t change until a week or so later. How hard is it to reflect what you have on a daily basis online in 2018? We live in a digital world.
