    Better than we could have dreamed

    Everything about Sassafraz was perfect. They were flexible as we planned our wedding from South Korea. They days leading up to the wedding were perfect. We had easy access to the rooms to set up the day before. The day of, Jeff was the most amazing host for us. Everything I could think of, he had already done. They plated our Cinnabons with extra personalized decor on the plates. Everything was perfect and the food was amazing!

    Perfect, Intimate Wedding

    I would like to start off by saying that we had THE most perfect wedding at Sassafraz. The level of service we received on our day was exceptional. The staff was kind, attentive, quick, patient and felt like they wanted to be there rather than having to be there. The food was the talk of our wedding, the quality of the meals was very high. The venue is beautiful on its own, and we felt it was spacious yet intimate.

    I was never worried about anything and the Dennette was an absolute pleasure to work with. Very organized and answered all my questions and concerns, no detail was too small for her. The fact that I never was aware of small hiccups that happened and everything was taken care so seamlessly. I highly recommend this venue for a wedding!

    Sassafraz was the perfect venue to host our venue with approximately 100 guests. Incredible value for such a beautiful location. Dennette is extremely professional and made sure every detail was tended to in advance of our wedding. She seamlessly executed all deliveries on the day of and I knew I didn't have to worry about everything - when I arrived at the venue everything had been looked after and the place looked stunning.

    My Fiance and I had engagement photos taken at Sassafrazz, 2 of the shots I loved most and will cherish forever were taken at their breathtaking establishment. Moreover we enjoyed a couple glasses of Sangria and Merlot they suggested, along with a few appetizers during our time there. The food, drinks, and especially the service was all amazing. The staff was extremely polite and accommodating, the actual venue was impeccably clean and you could tell attention is paid to detail. The largest part of the venue is their hall on the left hand side where they have a gorgeous skylight at the top of their what seems like 30ft ceiling adorned with gorgeous cascading veins and a modern wine cellar on the left back wall. The lighting in this room, especially this area is unmatched. It would make an excellent venue for any event. We were fortunate enough to have pictures taken inside and outside. Sassafraz has a stunning art mural and patio area on the right side of the building outside, pictures and drinks were enjoyed on this patio. Thank you Sassafraz for allowing us to take pictures at your establishment and for being so accommodating.

    After 17 years together my partner Rob and I decided to get married last summer. We looked at virtually every venue in the city and selected Sassafraz in Yorkville. We knew it would be a great day but could never have anticipated how truly amazing the wedding ended up being largely due the staff and service at Sassafraz. Our contact there was Dennette and she made the entire planning process fantastic, easy and ensure to exceed our expectations. We never once heard "we can't do that" or "that is not possible" - we only heard "we can absolutely make that happen for you." From every meeting, to every email and request the team at Sassafraz never once disappointed. The actual day was sheer perfection. We had 140 guests for the ceremony and dinner and well into the wee hours of the morning and everyone raved about how amazing the entire experience was. I think the true testament of how amazing the venue is are local guests who said "we have not been there in years and will absolutely be going back soon." They are totally service focused and if you want a high end, elegant affair, this is the venue for you!
