Dennette and the staff at Sassafraz were so amazing to work with! We booked the second floor of Sassafraz for our wedding in February 2024 and they made sure to coordinate with our vendors and made sure everything went smoothly. Very little floral and decor is needed because the space is absolutely beautiful on it's own! We will definitely be back for our anniversary.

Sassafraz was a perfect wedding venue. Our late-November, 70-person wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more. We had our ceremony and cocktail hour upstairs, followed by dinner in the dining room, and the back upstairs for dancing.

The venue is already so beautiful that only minor decoration was required; in the dining room, we opted for white tablecloths, greenery garlands with candles. The dining room looked magical. Even though we were well below the dining room’s capacity, the Sassafraz team set up the space, so it still felt full and well-used. Upstairs, a flower arch and a few flower arrangements by the bar were all the decoration that were required. We gladly leveraged much of the signage that Sassafraz provided instead of bringing our own, this included menus, table numbers, cocktail menu, and welcome sign. We were also able to find many great photo spots within the restaurant, with the bonus of being able to take a few pictures in the park across the street with the holiday lights.

The food was also exceptional! Our guests certainly agreed as we got rave reviews all evening and in the following days.

We cannot thank Dennette and the Sassafraz team enough for all their help and guidance in the lead up to our big day and on the night of. Dennette is wonderful; she is exceptionally prompt in responding to questions and comes with great ideas. On the night of, all the staff were exceptional. Everyone went out of their way to ensure we had a landmark night. I appreciate how accommodating the staff was in working with our vendors to make sure everything went smoothly.

Sassafraz, thank you for everything. You will certainly be seeing us again - most definitely for our anniversary but I don't think we'll be able to wait that long!

We couldn't have asked for a better venue for our wedding! We had our ceremony upstairs, as well as cocktail hour then headed downstairs for dinner/ speeches, then lastly went back upstairs for dancing and drinks. Dennette is amazing! From day one she answered any questions or concerns we had and on the day of was the most helpful making sure everything went smoothly and on schedule. Our guests raved about the delicious food and the incredible staff. We decided on a smaller wedding guest list (108) and wanted somewhere in Toronto that would be a central and convenient location for guests to get to/ from. Sassafraz has stunning decor and ambiance, having chosen a November wedding date we opted for lots of candlelight to create a more romantic space. Highly recommend having your wedding at Sassafraz, working with Dennette and everyone at Sassafraz that made our wedding the most beautiful, fun and special day!!

I recently had my wedding at Sassafraz and I cannot speak more highly of this amazing restaurant. We used the private event space on the second floor and had about 60 guests. Its naturally beautiful so we didn’t need too much décor. We chose to have canapes and food stations instead of a formal sit-down meal (we were going for a light and social affair) and the food was amazing. Their menu is quite varied, so it was fun and easy to customize our wedding fare. All the staff were absolutely fantastic – sincere thank you to Affan, Autumn, Fairoz, Naoymi, Rishabh, Olivia and of course Dennette. We worked with Dennette right from the beginning and she is simply a gem. She guides you through the entire planning process, provides expert suggestions if you’re unsure and is very responsive by phone and email. No wedding planner needed. The entire evening came together so wonderfully; it was even better than we could have envisioned.

Choosing Sassafraz for our wedding was the best decision we made for our wedding planning. The event coordinator's responsiveness was much appreciated and made things very easy. From the initial planning stages to the final execution, their commitment made the entire process seamless.

We decided to opt for a wedding of under 100 people in an intimate setting. We are accustomed to attending weddings at banquet halls but due to all the pressure to provide a flashy wedding, inviting a large amount of people… we were very turned off with the wedding planning process. Sassafraz was like a beacon of light through wedding planning doom.

The staff at Sassafraz were a true highlight, exuding professionalism and courtesy at every turn. The prompt and flawless service they provided was matched only by the exceptional quality of the food. Each dish was a culinary delight, leaving a lasting impression on our guests. Like any bride and groom, we barely had time to eat our meals but the staff went out of their way to make sure we were able to try what we wanted. This included running into the back to get us extra hors d’oeuvres on the wedding day.

What truly set this venue apart was the personalized touch we experienced on our special day. The staff went above and beyond to make us feel special and not just “another wedding”. It's the kind of attention to detail and genuine care that transforms a wedding into an unforgettable experience. On the day of our wedding tasting, the bartender came to our table himself and asked us how he could make the drinks on our wedding day even more special to serve our preferences.

I wholeheartedly recommend Sassafraz to anyone seeking a venue where professionalism, exquisite cuisine, and heartfelt hospitality meet.

At first I was skeptical that having an intimate restaurant wedding could match the impression of these huge capitalistic parades that weddings have become, but I am very happy we chose this venue. We got to focus on the important part of a wedding without the distractions, with excellent hospitality. We had the main dining room and I was concerned about the lack of room for a big dancing area but I think it worked perfectly. The day after the wedding guests commented that because there was no lounge/other rooms that guests can escape to it forced everyone to interact in the same setting and had one big party, rather than “cliques” or smaller groups doing their own thing. I enjoyed that aspect very much.

Our wedding day was nothing short of perfection, thanks to the dedicated team at Sassafraz.

Sassafraz was the perfect setting for our intimate wedding. Dennette helped us plan an unforgettable ceremony and reception and took care of all of the details. The price per person was perfect for our budget and included a variety of canapés, meal choices, late night snacks and cocktails. Dennette was very thorough with our initial planning meetings and was always available to answer all of our questions. During the day of the ceremony and reception, Dennette was onsite and managed everything so we did not have to worry about any details - we were able to enjoy every moment with our guests. Our guests had a great time and we were all taken care of by the wonderful staff. The night truly couldn’t have been more perfect for us.
