Sassafraz Reviews List

Sassafraz

Set in an array of Victorian rowhouses, Sassafraz has evolved through the decades to become a magical space in the heart of historic Yorkville. Located at the corner of Bellair and Cumberland, the little yellow house has "seen it all" from the early hippie movement of the 60"s to the lack of movement that comes from too much Bordeaux. Sassafraz offers an exceptional menu serving market-driven, French-inspired Canadian cuisine.

"Our waiter was kind but seemed inexperienced as he apologized for everything. Over the course of our meal he said the words "sorry" over twenty times for very minor things.
The lamb was okay. It was difficult to cut and not worth the price."

"We have been going to Sassafras for over ten years. For many of those years they had the same professional wait staff. This was the third lunch in a row at which the service was terribly slow and the staff seemed overwhelmed in spite of the fact that the restaurant was not full. This is a pity for such a long running business- fire and all."

"I had heard good things about Sassafraz so thought I would plan a date night with my boyfriend. The food was just so unbelievably good (that kind of good when you need to moan as you eat it). The service was also great. Quick but not too quick. Everything was timed perfectly so we weren't looking around for our food or water or bill. I would HIGHLY reccommend a nice night out here."

"We go to sassafras regularly for Sunday brunch. Having been out of country for a period of time we went back for brunch this past Sunday. Four of us. None of us liked the new menu.
The prices appear to have gone up. The portions are out of sight too large. Way too much food. There is nothing less appetizing on a Sunday brunch that a huge pile of food on a plate. Less is more btw. Are they now catering to the American tourist appetite for large plates lots of food? We also found the food too salty. Something has definitely changed in the kitchen.
Bring back the fun food please like the great fish tacos. Where have they gone? And ditto the lovely sliced flank steak. No one needs a humongous strip loin for brunch. A little but of brunch creativity please.
Great fans of this restaurants, overall we were disappointed with the brunch menu and the food and are now looking for an alternative venue for our Sunday brunch excursions.

"There are many choices for restaurants in Yorkville, many of them excellent. It is hard to sort through the choices, but there is one that is always excellent and you can always pick without worry. That is Sassafraz. Been there a long time, but is nicely decorated, service is good, parking is nearby, and more important that food is not only very good, but there are usually a couple of unexpected finds."

"Everything was absolutely fantastic for our evening. The only thing I would comment on would be the server - not much of a personality or a conversationalist. The food was outstanding"
