We’re passionate about offering a personalized food experience that you and your guests won’t forget.The dishes on our event menus are identical to those on our à la carte dining menu – same plate, same presentation, same taste.

Service by Seasoned Professionals

From the initial communication to the ongoing planning to the professional servers who wait on your tables when the big day arrives, our service is seamless and spot on.

Cuisine & Cocktails

The appreciation of food and drink is a main reason why couples select a restaurant for their wedding. At Sassafraz, guests make their selection at the table. Custom menus are placed at each setting; servers will take each guest’s order directly. All dishes are the same as those on our à la carte dining menu. Many food and drink options are available including our “food & drink” bundle. (photo courtesy of Robert Okine Photographer & Digital Media)
