I love this restaurant. The service was a little slower than usual but all was forgiven with the great food and special request for a 16th Birthday. Great job.

We have been going to Sauce for a long time and our meal wasn't what we expected this time. The food just wasn't as good. The chicken was dry.

On a very hot day we choSw Sauce because it is a favourite and has cool underground parking. The parking was a big problem - actually the only problem.....the garage door wouldn't open and with the ramp very steep, a challenge to backup and go over the sensor again...then the parking machine wouldn't accept cash or credit card. My friend had r ceived an $80 fine for parking here before, 10 min over what she had paid for, so we spend more time getting the machine to accept our cash or card...
I love Sauce, the food is wonderful, but the underground parking is a significant problem. And sometimes street parking is full......

Fantastic spot, the details such as roasting your own beans for the coffee and quality of olive oil used on salads makes a big difference!

The ambiance and service were good and as expected. The quality of food was not as expected and experienced in the past. One meal was warm at best, one meal was hot but the meat balls were dry and burnt. Disappointing but will return because this has not be the experience in the past.

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.

Sauce is always excellent at lunch - lots of variety on the menu and most of it for $12.

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 were at Sauce for the Sunday special night and my birthday. It’s a nice restaurant with great ambiance and a fun menu. Portions were a little small for my liking, but the quality was great.

Highly recommended. We will be back!

Generally ok, but found the service slow and food just average. I’ve been before and had a better experience, so maybe just an off night.
