    Saturday brunch was delicious and service very courteous. Restaurant decor is very relaxing, although elegant it is unpretentious and cozy. Bar scene is great. Doesn’t have a large wait area, so you better come in on time. Totally recommend this restaurant, it’s one to return many times.

    I can never say anything but great things about this place. The service is impeccable. The well lit dining room is bright and sunny for an afternoon lunch. The food was fantastic. I recommend the bass and salmon. Don’t forget an order of frites too. The wine selection is a perfect size, with great options but not overwhelming. I also suggest the cheesecake for dessert and I’d even head back for Sunday brunch! Their eggs Benedict cannot be beat!!

    We had a party of eight and had a round table near the indoor waterfall. A great table for a large party as we could all face each other and enjoy the conversations. Food was tremendous. Great shareables. The steaks were great. But the lamb shank was the best, particularly if you like a bit of jalapeño. Service was quick and friendly. The staff are all very professional.

    Always a good time at Sassafraz, everything was delicious. I find some portions a little small, especially the shareable Mac and cheese. I had the bass, and it was so good, but I was also a little hungry still, after. The cocktails are commendable, ambience just right, prices really reasonable and the seats are really comfy. Can’t wait to go back!
