The escargot was so outstanding, I passed on the escargot and sopped up the fabulous sauce. Next time I will order it as a cup of soup ! Salad was icy and perfect, sea bass was outstanding, dessert was orange creme cake, and flourless chocolate cake, both perfect ! Chef Joseph was amazing, and well as skilled in his kitchen... More

Arrived a bit late one evening, just 20 minutes before closing thinking we might be able to pick up something to go. The chef welcomed us as though we were family, insisted we sit and enjoy our dinner. Our adult children were with us and we're pleasantly surprised how we were treated and astonished at the meals served. We each... More

Went to Sasses during a torrential downpour the other evening, but once inside it was a warm and inviting atmosphere. During the weekday off season they only had one waitress, but she was very efficient what with the 20 customers. The chef prepares everything fresh right in front of the patrons. What a treat! I had the veal Milanese and... More

Unparalleled dishes! Chef Josef is a perfectionist in quality and presentation and it certainly pays off. Been here numerous times and was NEVER disappointed. Had great salmon in Paris and still was craving Sasses' salmon upon my return!

Very nice restaurant. Excellent Chef and accommodating staff. Most dishes were tasty and reasonably priced. The one exception was the Osso Buco which was very faithful to its original recipe but priced at $ 42 made it very expensive. Other restaurants that serve this dish price it between $28-$34.

His staff including Michelle and Joanne always make you fell very special. I also celebrated my 70th birthday there in February with 29 familiy and friends. Every meal was presented perfectly at the... More

We have been going to this restaurant off and on for close to 15 years. It has had several owners during this time, and we had not been at Sasse’s since the new owner, Mr. Jeff Zimmermann took over a few years ago. We were pleasantly surprised by both the food and the service. We did find out that the... More
