We had a business meal for an approximate number of people, because travel plans kept adjusting. The service staff were excellent in helping us, in fact they offered to keep the kitchen open for one of our colleagues, who ended up not attending because he was too late. The meal that we all had was excellent and the service was... More

In a very smart part of town (Yorkville), we had pre-dinner drinks in the cafe/bar attached and then an excellent meal. Would not suggest for small children but my 13 year old son had lots to choose from. Nice ambience. Would go back

Loved the food, was very good and service was excellent. Enjoyed the couch to sit in, after hours of walking Yorkville.. Ambiance was lovely.

My father and I ate at Sassafraz for lunch early in September 2014. We were actually searching for brunch one Friday morning and stumbled across Sassfraz, which I had heard from friends was a nice place to eat. Despite arriving a little before opening we were welcomed in for a cup of coffee until the kitchen opened for lunch. Staff... More

Terribly disappointing! (not withstanding the scallops which were good) If I hadn't known that I had ordered lamb, I would never have known that it was lamb I was eating. From the first cut and taste...there was no taste. I couldn't believe it. I didn't comment to my friends, as I was being taken out and didn't want to offend... More

What a surprising disappointment. Not a busy evening, but the kitchen could not supply 4 out of 9 entrees on the menu. One member of our party ended up ordering a hamburger off the bar menu. My entrée was beyond overdone--literally burned. Service was spotty. This restaurant is on its last legs...cannot recommend it for any reason, particularly given the... More

Arrived with no booking, but was seated in what was initially a sunny spot with no shade, but as the hour progressed the sun moved around and it was pleasant. 2 Bloody Mary's and a Bellair Bellini. Eggs Benedict, pancakes and a omelette were the perfect brunch selections. Great views of people and smart cars parading on a sunny weekend.... More

Completely underwhelming food. Soup had no taste. Burger very bland. Yet priced like a premier spot ?? On the plus side, the bland food was served very well, with friendly and attentive service. Oh, how to tip??
