Why do restaurants that look down on patrons who use groupons or other type of vouchers, bother with offering it? Do I need a waitress to tell me even before I make a wine selection that the wine they are pairing with the groupon menu is

We went here for duvet on a Saturday night and it was crowded at 5:30, so definitely make a reservation. We had the buffalo mozzarella salad, mushroom ravioli, and ginger frappe and chocolate mousse. The food was good, but not quite with what they're charging. It's in an upscale neighborhood, and nice atmosphere in the restaurant.

The food was good and as I was sharing a dish, I liked that they brought it out on separate plates. The service was v good throughout. The cocktails were strong and nice. Nice surroundings. Would return.

We recently celebrated two milestone birthdays at Sassafraz, thanks to a Groupon deal we purchased. It was a prix fixe dinner menu, which was amazing. We highly the Quail appetizer, the bison entree or the halibut entree and the beignets for dessert. We did not have to wait more than two minutes in between courses. We would definitely go back.

Well...left the confines of Mississauga to head to the fantastic city of Toronto ❤. "Bit of a drive" to get to Yorkville but worth it.( ugly traffic!) Went on a Groupon and was truly expecting to be treated "differently "...but wasn't. Specific Groupon menu with great choices for appetizers /entrées and desserts. Well presented...very tasty... picture perfect really. Wine list... More

I`ve been to Sassafraz several times and always have a great experience. It`s reasonably priced for the quality and the staff are always very attentive. I chose to have my wedding here too and couldn`t have been happier with my choice!

This was our first time here. We had a lovely window table, so lots of people watching. The menu is small, but varied. The tartare appetizer was superb, and the arugula salad very nice. Sassafraz mac and cheese was rich in a good way. Great wine list, and Decoy, one of our California favourites, was on the menu so horray... More
