nice team but not amazing management
Hostess/ Customer Relations (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON13 June 2016
The other Employees are amazing and the management seems great at first but they are prone to favouritism and if you don't devote your entire life to there schedule then they will cut your shifts. I left to serve else where but, I've seen it happen to multiple people there. They are also supposed to work on a seniority system and "promote from within" but they don't .
Pros
great staff
Cons
long hours

Great place to experience.
Fine Dining Server (Former Employee) –  Toronto6 May 2016
In my opinion, one of the most valuable locations in the country. Sassafraz was the "big yellow house" on the corner of Belair and Cumberland in the prestigious Yorkville neighbourhood in Toronto. Rich and famous abounded and we served any and all comers with equal class and elegance.
