    Food was great, ambiance was unreal and our server Lorne was unbelievable great at his job and recommendations. Having him as my server I'd eat at any restaurant. Great wine recommendations and super friendly.

    We had a great dinner at Sauce on a chilly Monday evening. It was pasta night for $15 so three of us took advantage of the offer while our other guest had the chicken parmesan. Everyone enjoyed their main course as well as an excellent example of a Caesar salad. The desserts were also delicious and the Spanish coffee was the perfect way to end a fine meal.

    I'm not entirely sure it is well suited for easy-going retirees like, who found the lighting a bit dark to read the menu (unassisted) and speed in which the servers spoke and interacted with us. In fact, we ordered one dish incorrectly, because of the hustle in the order (so we effectively ate separately when one order was corrected). Delicious food and talented, attentive staff, though I feel we may be too chill for Sauce.

    Very enjoyable evening! Our server, Kirsten was great.. friendly and attentive. Had 2 older ladies in our party celebrating birthdays so it was a nice atmosphere and not too noisy. We had requested a quiet area away from the middle as both ladies have mobility issues and were pleased that a table was reserved in the corner away from others. We have been to sauce numerous times and the food is consistently great! The Conchigle pasta dish is wonderful!

    The Caesar salad had only maybe 3 small pieces of prosciutto on it. Not really worth the price. The servers were fantastic. The pasta is always good. It just took a really long time to get our food. About a 30-45 min wait for it.

    Food was fantastic! Our service staff were amazing and tried to make up for the fact that our table had been given away before we got there. We even got a free dessert as it was a birthday celebration. Highly recommend for anyone who loves Italian food.

    We come over frequently, bit this time our dinning was a disappointment. Their pasta is of poor quality (mushy supermarket quality). The Tortellini Brodo that I ordered was undercooked and loaded with hot chillies, who adds hit chilli to broth! Gnocchi was heavy and mushy. Service was good and wine list had some good picks.

    We had never been here and it was quite lovely. The market and restaurant are well lit and tidy, clean and organized. The restaurant was beautiful and the lights were very pretty. The menus were clear and simple and the service was prompt. The food was so good especially the appetizers, those sweet potatoes were bonkers!! Holy! Overall the food was delicious, the portions were generous, the prices were reasonable. Will definitely go back.

    My friend and I were there for our annual Christmas lunch!! The food was sadly under seasoned and it took a very long time for appetizers. 45 mins. They our main lunch was 35 mins after that…. I understand it was a busy lunch rush but I was disappointed! 😞 I feel the tables who ordered alcohol were catered to more!! Maybe it was an off day but the food was not the same quality! Thanks for reading this , Lisa

    My experience at Sauce was fantastic as it always is. We enjoyed a Christmas business lunch. We had two spicy Sicilian pasta dishes and a chicken and Brussels sprouts salad. All were delicious! We also tried the ricotta and mushroom appetizer and we raved about it. The service was prompt and friendly (love the servers) they always make me feel special. If you haven’t tried Sauce yet GO!

    I have the home made ravioli with cheese and pumpkin (zucca). The price was $24 and I only had about 6 small pieces, less than any appetizer I ever had. I was still very hungry and was not prepared to pay another $20+ for another lunch. I know restaurants are reducing portions and raising prices but this is obscene.

    We all enjoyed our lunch. My panini had a bit too much apricot preserves than I cared for, but otherwise everything was very tasty. We were seated in a quiet corner as requested and although we were still a bit bothered by noise, it was no fault of the restaurant. Just people at a nearby table who were very loud. But once they left it was quiet enough to have a conversation which was great. Service was attentive and our server was wonderful about checking with the kitchen about allergens. Would definitely return here

    We were quite please with our visit to your restaurant everyone was pleased with what they ordered but the waiter charged us for Crostini which we never got. It seemed like the waiter was extremely busy; maybe you were short of staff? We will still visit your restaurant again regardless of the small error.
