Menu
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.

It was just okay. The server was very nice & knowledgeable about the menu, the staff was fast & efficient even though the restaurant was busy. I really enjoyed the appetizer, the cauliflower & potato soup, it had a great flavour & texture. I found that the main course; the lamb shank was very bland & fatty, I expected better from a place in the heart of Yorkville. The rich and decadent chocolate torte made up for the just-okay-lamb.

I approached lunch at Sassafraz with some apprehension, as I never know what to think about these famously popular restaurants. I have to say, that I enjoyed my lunch. The food was well seasoned, portions were good (we left very full), and the atmosphere was great. Overall, it was not legendary, but a good sound meal. Would go back for special occasions.

We're glad to hear that you enjoyed your lunch and we look forward to your next visit.

The food is good, but I don't believe it is worthy of more stars than 3. Service is ok, and decor is appropriate for the atmosphere as this place is famous for its fashionable corner.

My husband & I celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary at Sassafraz and had the MOST pleasant experience. We eat out quite a bit and have never been this satisfied with a high-end restaurant. From the first point of contact at the entrance, we were attended to immediately and directed towards the hostess, who then led us into the restaurant. Another hostess walked us over to our table where we were greeted by Michael, who provided us the BEST dining service ever. We were so impressed by the attention, courtesy, and professionalism that he demostrated. The restaurant's interior is exquisite, and the food is divine. From start to finish, our dining experience at Sassafraz could not have been any more perfect. Truly made our 1st anniversary most special.

We hosted our wedding at Sassafraz and cannot recommend the restaurant enough. They made the planning process simple and straightforward, they accommodated all of our requests, and they made the day run incredibly smoothly. During the planning, we tried all possible meals at the restaurant: brunch, lunch, and dinner; we even went one night just for cocktails. On all occasions, the staff were incredibly lovely and the food was delicious! The dinner they served on the night of the wedding was outstanding, and we received tons of compliments on it from family and friends. The staff we worked with to plan our event were all wonderful, from the wait staff to the bartenders to the people who manage the restaurant. The restaurant’s events coordinator, Dennette Schott, deserves our particular praise. Working with Dennette was an absolute delight. Before booking, we read a review that said that Dennette alone made Sassafraz the best choice for a wedding. We couldn’t agree more! We’ll definitely be back at Sassafraz again—and not just on special occasions!

Terrible. Went there with their Groupon deal for $69 three course meal for two. Still not worth it. Food was far below average. Took about 15 minutes to get order in. Then took nearly 1.5 hours to get our food (all three courses). Had to keep refilling on bread because we were starving. Chowder had chewy seafood in it (and tasteless). Tuna for dinner was average. Dessert (churros) was overdone/chewy as well...with chocolate sauce that doesn't even taste like chocolate. On the other side, the Bone Marrow appetizer was terrible. I think it was the flat iron steak she got, was very very small portion and cold. Chocolate cake for dessert was really bad to. I would give this less then 1 but I don't have the option. Also, with the Groupon menu, there were many items that was not included from their regular menu. Maybe there were just stingy with the Groupon clients...who knows....I won't be returning. The bus boys were really good though...and the ambiance...the only two good things about this place.
